Banks Stall Panic NEW YORK (AP) A loan of more than ex- tended by leading banks to Chrysler Financial Corp., the sales financing arm of Chrysler Corp., was an attempt to head off serious financial panic, The Times reports. The package loan, initiated June 29 and scheduled to be concluded Wednesday, was ar- ranged during five business days in a show of confidence by banks in credit-worthy compa- nies caught in a squeeze by pan- icky market conditions, The Times says, quoting members of the banking community. Chrysler Financial's troubles started shortly after Penn Cen- tral Co.'s petition for reorgani- zation of'its railway subsidiary under federal bankruptcy law, The Times says. Sales of Chrys- 1 e r Financial's commercial paper, unsecured notes sold on the open market, dropped 40 per cent, Chrysler Leasing official told The Times. Rumors in the market spurred the banks, led by the Manufacturers Hanover Trust Co. of New York, to arrange the loan package, which The Times says carries an interest rate sub- stantially higher than the 8 per cent prime rate. The Times said nine other major U.S. banks were involved in the package. Depressed U.S. Stock Market Plans Layoff NEW YORK (AP) The American Stock Exchange has announced plans to lay off 100 workers in the face of continued I6w daily trading volumes. The layoff reduces the Amex staff to 850. Combined with a previous layoff of 100 workers May 1, it reduces operating ex- penses by 20 per cent, exchange sources said Monday. The first layoff affecte d mainly floor and clearing-house workers. It includes supervi- sory, administrative and execu- tive personnel. The New York Stock Ex- change confirmed it has been following a policy of not filling job vacancies as they occur. Its staff now totals down, from a peak of in mid- March. land Lake and North Bay, plus radio stations in each of these centres except Kingston, and the two radio stations in Tim- mins. SEPARATES GROUPS In the case of these Ontario purchases, transferring owner- ship to Bushnell means "separa- tion of a group of broadcasting stations from a significant newspaper the CRTC said, meaning the Thomson newspapers. "The commission thinks this separation is desirable." However, it added that ap- proval for purchase of the TV and radio stations in North Bay is contingent on Buhsnell in turn divesting itself of these stations to another purchaser satisfac- tory to the commission "as rap- idly as possible." Bushnell ownership would meet the immediate desirability of separating the broadcasting interests from the newspaper in- terests but the apparent longer- term aim would be ownership for the North Bay stations with- out a tie into a big broadcasting group.
