(NEWS Staff Market Recovers To Delight Of Democrats WASHINGTON' (AP) Demo- crats who had been concerned by ominous political implications of the stock market plunge breathed easier today after most of the losses were recofered in a. spec- tacular pre-holiday rally. While the market prices were in their deep slump, Kennedy admin- istration officials said there was no economic basis for the slide. But Congressional Republicans punched hard at the theme that the selling wave reflected a lack of business confidence in the ad- ministration. Tuesday's rally in which the Dow Jones average of 30 industri- als registered a gain of 27.03 to 603.96, nearly wiping out Mon- day's loss of 34.95, was describee by Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, D- Minn., as very encouraging. Humphrey, assistant Democrat- ic Senate leader, said "I expect further improvement in the mar- ket, as I expect further improve- ment in the economy." As for GOP criticism that had been hurled at the administration .while Wall Street prices were tumbling, Humphrey said: "I thought our Republican col- leagues were just a little too anx- Wall Street Rests After Rugged Day NEW YORK (AP) The stock Market took a much-needed rest today after a dizzy whirl in which it rallied, from its steepest dive since 1929. Stock exchanges are closed for the Memorial Day holiday. The swirling rally Tuesday aft- ernoon recovered almost all of mutual funds and other institu- tions sparked the rally. The advance, with blue-chip ious and a little too partisan to see the real facts of the econ-: omy." Although there was no way of knowing if the market advance would be sustained, Humphrey said, "It appears the market, de- spite its wild fluctuations, will, come back to truly reflect'earn- ings and income." Republican congressional lead- ers were not available for com- ment. Although Humphrey earlier had attirubuted the Wall Street break primarily to other reasons, he ac- knowledged to reporters he de- tected "a tone of anger in the fi- nancial community" about the Atkinson's Lead Zooms To 826 Votes; Six Counties Still Remain To Be Tallied By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Former Gov. Raymond Gary said today he has just about given up hopes of winning the Democratic nomi- nation, but wants recounting completed in the final -six counties. Gary's statement came after a 100-vote error was dis- covered in retabulation of Cleveland County. This error increased W. P. Bill Atkinson's victory margin in the May 22 runoff to 841 votes, and Gary's slight gains in two more counties recounted today whit- tled this by only 15 votes' to 826. x The former governor picked up j n a net of 11 votes in Pittsburg KeCOUHl Atkinson Gain Of Five Votes By GEORGE GURLEY When the dust finally settled, W.

But investors and brokers had this question to ponder: Will the rally carry through Thursday? There was no way of telling whether the momentum generated will be sufficient to hurdle the holiday breather. Some brokers were optimistic but conceded it would be an up- hill struggle to sustain an advance in a market that has been declin- ing since mid-March.
