BOOMS STOCK General Motors Rises in Market; Other Leaders Also Turn Upward NEW YORK. Feb. ll < AP).—News of peace in the General Motors strike brought a surge of buying in todav’s stock market that lifted leaders I to 3 points to new post-depre^sion peaks. Traders were not slow to cash in quick profits, however, and extreme gains were reduced or cancelled in many instances later. Fresh support was accorded the list around noon and motors and steels climbed back to around their tops of the session. Overnight orders were so heavy that the ticker tape fell 5 minutes behind floor dealings at one time. It required a governor of the stock exchange to open General Motors. The first trade in this stock was a block of 10.000 shares at 70. up 2'2 points. Activity slowed after the fust half hour’s rush. Prominent on the advance were Chrysler. United States Steel. Bethlehem. National Steel. Crucible. Briggs Mfg . Bendix. Westinghouse. Du Pont. American Can. Goodrich. Sears Roebuck. Anaconda. Lackawanna and Northern Pacific. Prices of American securities in London soared earlier. Bonds and commodities improved Market Opens Fast NEW YORK, Feb. ll (APL-In one of the fastest openings witnessed rn some time, stock market leaders today surged up I to more than 3 points, although some later gave ground under profit selling General Motors was 16 minutes late in appearing on the ticker tape. A block of 10.000 shares changed hands at 70. up 252 points. Other prominent gainers included Chrysler. Westinghouse. American Telephone, United States Steel, Bethlehem. Yellow Truck, Goodrich and duPont. The General Motors strike peace agreement provided strong buying stimulation at the start of trading. At the same time prices of American securities soared in London. Further fuel for recovery forces was provided by the 1936 earnings statement of Chrysler showing a net of $14.25 a share, best in the company’s history. Declaration of a $1.50 dividend was about in line with expectations. Payments of $5.50 and $4 were voted at the two previous meetings. Total disbursements last year were $12 a share. Recent popularity of electrical equipment company issues was attributed partly to estimates in financial quarters that sales in this field during 1937 should record an increase of 25 to 35 per cent over the 1936 volume.

Feb. ll (APL— A United States chamber of commerce committee urges that projected increases in taxes under the social security act be postponed until 1947. Old age pension taxes ’n now are one per cent on both workers’ wages and employers’ pay rolls, are scheduled to climb to 1.5 per cent in 1940 and 3 per cent in 1949. Collections under the one per cent rate, the committee said. "will i yield more than enough revenue to meet for years al! expenditures under the act " Urging postponement of the in-creases, it said the intervening time j could be used "to work out the problems now presented’’ by the law. The group expressed approval of j the act’s purposes, but suggested that unemployment insurance taxes, now borne solely bv employers, be extended to employees. LIVESTOCK J PITTSBURGH, Fob.
