In New York today, the dollar eased to 138 yen, compared to 138.75 yen late Wednesday. Analysts said they were surprised that Wall Street opened so strongly today, but said the market may have gotten some encouragement from signs of stability that emerged during Wednesday's session The market's strength in the face of the overseas losses and the dollar’s weakness was a positive sign, said Jack Baker, head of block trading at Shearson I oilman Brothers Inc. "We're pretty impressed.’' he said However. A lot of people aren’t going to rush back” to stocks of smaller companies. Baker said. Those stocks, which comprise what is known as the secondary market, remained lower even while blue chip stocks rose following the market's Get 19 collapse Although there was more panic stock selling in New York Wednesday, "each wave puts less pressure on the market.' said Michael Metz, an analyst with Op-penheimer & Co. That could be a sign of a turnaround. or at least a welcome measure of stability, some suggested. Alan Shaw, a managing director at Smith Barney. Harris Upham & Co., said the Dow average's 21 5-point recovery in the last 30 minutes evidenced the market's resiliency in spite of the turmoil that began with the Oct. 19 collapse that erased $500 billion from the value of stocks But analysts were still cautious This is a very treacherous market,” said Alfred E Goldman a vice president at A G Edwards ii Sons Inc. in St. Louis. Two stocks fell for every one that advanced Wednesday Meanwhile, the market value of American stocks, as measured by Wilshire Associates, fell $12 billion, or 0.5 percent, to $2 25 trillion after recouping On Tuesday, stocks picked up about $37 billion, while the Dow average rose 52 56 points Volume came to 279 million shares in another abbreviated session on the New York exchange. Markets have been closing two hours early to allow people to catch up on paperw ork and will continue to have shortened hours through F riday In early New York dealings today, the dollar hovered around Wednesday's lows against the British pound and the West German mark Stephen Flanagan a trader at Manufacturers Hanover Trust Co., predicted activity would be "choppy” and marked by "considerable dollar buying" because of technical factors Reasoner full of baloney EL PASO. Texas AP - CBS newsman Harry Reasoner knew he was dishing out a big load of baloney when he called the University of Texas-El Paso one of the most distinguished in the nation, but it was all in fun Reasoner, speaking Tuesday in a national radio broadcast, said he was testing the school's "Emergency Baloney gram System" by feeding his listeners a big bunch of baloney unsandwiched by truth. Texas-El Paso officials cooked up the tongue-in-cheek Baloneygram idea last week to clear up misconceptions about the university The school bites back at disseminators of incorrect information by ordering a Baloneygram to clear up the misconception Reasoner seemed to want a Baloneygram rn the "wurst” way Tuesday when he served a tall stack of baloney on CBS New snotes. •‘The ivy-and-cactus-covered campus of the University of Texas at El Paso is home to one of America s foremost and most respected academic institutions." Reasoner said "UTEP's stringent admission policies rank second only to Harvard's "The distinguished UTEP faculty has hired twice as many Nobel prize winners as MIT and Cal Tech combined .And at the UTEP phys-ed department, the only scholar-athletes who didn't win Rhodes scholarships last year made do with Fulbrights.” The campus is not ivy-covered School officials said Reasoner s comments didn’t give them any indigestion. bell* vc mortgage rate" are headed down UNEMPLOYMENT Unemployment in September fell to 5 9 percent the first time this decade it has been below 6 percent But economists are new predicting it will t**gin rising again because of the weak economic growth they are forecasting I NE I A I Ion I hrough September. inflation has been rising at .t: annual rate of 4 8 percent While there I-I been fears that rising energy prices c**uid "end consumer pm es racing ahead at much higher rates eeononusts now behew* those worries were unjustified IM KREN I RATES One of the few br’gtit spots in the post-stock « 'Hap***- world The Federal Reserve which had been tightening credit bx a use of inflation worries, fias been aggressively easing since the crash to insure that the sudden loss of wealth didn't weaken the American banking system This infusion of new money is expected to push a variety of interest rates, including mortgage rates, lower in months ahead, rev ersing some of the hefty increases seen earlier in the vear BUDGET DEFICIT The budget deficit fell by 33 percent in the fiscal vear which ended Sept 30. declining to $148 billion While Wall Street has forced the Reagan administration and Congress to get serious about making further deficit reductions, analysts are not h**peful Despite what happens rn the negotiations. many of them "ee the red ink rising to around UTO billion in the current budget year SKATE CENTER - SEGUIN OPEN FRI NITE 7 30 10 30 BLDG NOW AVAIL SAT KITES FOB PRIVATE PARTIES ETC ' (SKATING OR NON SKATING) RENTAL INFO: 372 Fndav October 30 8 OO 12 OO Stockton & Johnson Saturday October 31 9 OO 1 OO Clay Blaker Sunday November 1 4 00 8 00 Hal Michael Ketchum 625 0142 f BARGAIN MATINEES 4 40 TO 5 30 DAU Y V' A*'v •*’ '    * FATAL ATTRACTION Sat Sun 2 JO 4 4* IOO* *S _A»«*    Jar*    4    4S    7    OO    t    H WALNUT 6 629-6400 TU,S,)AV HHHHHHHi _ liar* Mere I like I.tiki I rn Sat Sun A•okday JU HIU I SKK' STAKEOUT Sat Sun J J% 4 SO 7 06 9 20 A ark da* * 4 SC 7 OS 9 20 Sat Sun I JO J JO * JO ’ JC 9 JO ftmaayv b JO 7 JO 9 JO HATOUM He ll *eor your voui opart Sat Sun I IO J IO A 10 7 lOlTO Meekly* 6 IO 7 IO 9 *0 Sat Sun I OO J OSS 10 71 Wftkdiyc S IO 7 20 9 JO Sat Sun 2 46 SOO 7 IS *30 Aaakdayx 6 OO 7 1SS30 Friday, October 30 9: OO to I : OO Caroline Steele Saturday, October 31 Darrell McCall ff e Noir Nerve Mixed Drink* Restaurant Thursday Night /^saturday Kibeye Steak Dinner /    Night $5.95    /    Prime Rib Dinner 8 oz.
