What makes the Dow tick and will it ever split? The Dow industrials more than any other indicator have come to signify "the market" to Wall Street and to 32 million shareowners. The singular status of the Dow average derives in part from its longevity and from its constant exposure in the pages of the Wall Street Journal and on thousands of chattering Dow- Jones tickers. It has become a fixture in the language, used by housewives, taxi drivers and financiers. The long-sought goal of on a closing basis carries a mystique all its own.

NEW FDRMUWS WWE PRODUCED BETTEB EDMONTON (CP) Can- ada's present political situation may result in the Liberal gov- evnment giving people what they want without regard to fu- ture implications, Daniel Spra- gue of Winnipeg, president of the Canadian Manufacturer's Association, said Wednesday. Mr. Sprague, chairman of James B. Carter Ltd., said there are indications, "particu- larly after this that the Liberal government may Soviet economy is weak MOSCOW (AP) Russia's economy is showing persistent weakness in areas the lead- ership promised would launch the Soviet Union into the con- sumer era.

"A fear I would have is that politicians will be reading what the people want and will give it to them Mr. Spra- gue said at a news conference during a one-day visit to Ed- monton. He said the political deadlock "is very bad for the country, and most unfavorable for busi- ness in general. "Business doesn't thrive on uncertainty. We're at a crucial stage in our development a stage where we need strong government in Canada. We're faced now with a most unsta- ble situation." He said this situation will complicate the association's dealings with the government to some extent. "We will have to not only make our views known to the government of the day, but also to the opposition and to all minority parties. "If the government is listen- ing to the Conservative party, we may have some influence. But !f it is listening to another party, we may find things more radical than we would want." Mr. Sprague cited unemploy- ment as one of the major prob- lems in Canada and said condi- tions for receiving unemploy- ment assistance have been made "too with benefits being such that they destroy the incentive to work. "People must be in a position where they want things. If they're in a position where they get things for nothing they won't work for it. "I believe In the work ethic myself." Instead of providing moire un- employment assistance, the government should help create a favorable business climate. "With a proper business cli- mate in Canada, industry will create the jobs.

The genesis of the dally in- dustrial average dates back to 1896. The man who began it all was Charles Henry Dow, a founder of Dow Jones and Co., Inc. This capped a dozen years of experimentation by Dow, whose versions of the average had appeared as an irregular feature in a four-page financial news bulletin called the cus- tomer's afternoon letter and circulated in New York's fi- nancial district. Additions, deletions and sub- stitutions were made in the statistical compilation until May 26, 1896, when Dow finally came up with a list of 12 indus- trial stocks. The first indfjstrial average, as of that date, stood at 40.M. Only two of the original 12 is- sues remain today in the list of 30 industrials. These are Gen- eral Electric and American Brands, known originally as American Tobacco. Shortly after this first indus- trial average appeared, it start- ed to decline and, on Aug. 8, 1896, it sank to 28.48, the lowest level on record.
