A similar decision was also taken by the Montreal, Cana- dian and Vancouver exchanges, and in oil cases takes effect today. The move follows a reduction by the Federal Reserve Board at New York Tuesday to 60 per cent-from 80 per cent. New York reduced its margin requirements after Wall Street closed Wednesday with its big- t loss in more than six years. The immediate result of the move at New York was a sharp advance. However, the market dropped back in later trading, EXTENDS CREDIT A margin reduction is, in ef- fect, an extension of credit to investors. The reduction means Cana- dian investors now can buy shares and pay 50 per cent down on the cost of shares, with ,he proviso that they pay ths. balance within a specified pe- riod of time. Margin minimum had been pegged at 60 per cent by the To- ronto Stock exchange since Feb- ruary, 19G9. For several years prior to this, the margin requirement was 50 per cent. The Toronto stock exchange said the margin was raised last year because of growing con- cern over what it termed "ex- cessive credit." Volume of trading on the To- ronto market has been ex- tremely low for several weeks. MARKET ERODED The market has been in a state of erosion, interrupted spo- radically by short-term rallies.

Ian B. Sinclair told the annual meeting that first-quarter earn- ings from railway and miscella- neous sources slumped to or 12 cents a share, a decline from or 32 cents a share for the same pe- riod of 1969. Mr. Sinclair attributed some of the decline to higher costs, higher wages and a continuing decline in subsidy payments re- ceived under the National Transportation Act. He said, however, that freight rate increase have already been put into effect and that others are planned later in the year. 11 e v e s margin requirements were dropped to ease pressure which has been forcing markets down. He said market declines have forced a number of Investors who were on margin out of the market, and added that the credit extension would reduce forced sales. He termed the change "mod- erately encouraging." The Toronto exchange said: "It is felt that the 50 per cent margin rate will not create ex- cessive demands for credit in the securities business. The move is not considered by the exchange to be in conflict with restrictive credit policies which now prevail. Potato Futures WINNIPEG (CP) The Mar- itime potato futures market had a good volume of trade Wednes- day with prices unchanged to 15 points under the market.
