Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - April 2, 1963, Mason City, Iowa Tax battle shaping up See story on page 3 A SEC takes long look at market No drastic changes seen By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette

has been selected CLOUDY No drastic changes are in the works New legislation probj ably is in the offing but not until the commissioners have studied a report about to be issued after a sweeping in vestigation and have conferred on it with leaders of the secur ities industry Publication of the SEC report could have a bullish effect on the market Anticipatory jitters about the report were believed to have kept the market narrow and quiet until one of the com missi9ners provided the sooth ing syrup Manuel F Cohen told a Har vard audience that alarming rumors were unfounded and that the report would not pre sent a picture of widespread j fraudulent activity like that of the late 1920s and 1930s The report will be as critical if not more so of the commission as of the industry Cohen said Neither of these probably re quire any drastic reconstruc tion The past year has been a rough one for the stock market and the people who live by it Last year at this time stock prices were

Act of 1933 is primarily a disclosure s t a t u tc But the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is a regulatory law It was de signed to insure maintenance of fair and honest markets in securities but on the exchanges and in overthecounter unlisted securities markets by regulat ing trading practices A study by the SEC 25 years ago led to the adoption of new constitutions by stock exchanges The general feeling on Wall Street is that the securities in dustry has done a better job of selfpolicing than any other industry The primary reason toj fear an unfavorable SEC report was that it xvould shake public confidence and cause investors to shun the market The upcoming report repre sents another stage in a continu ing process of strengthening protection of investors By direct action and moral suasion SEC and other policing agencies including the markets them selves have been tightening regulations New tough rules on advertising by investment ad visers went into effect on Jan 1 1962 And SEC nudging of the National Association of Securities Dealers has brought stricter control of the overthe counter market There is stili apprehension on Wall Street that even a favor able SEC report may be mis read as a sort of expose of the stock market But there also is good reason to believe that a report that docs not reflect SEC hostility properly shots in Retver lb ot Gladstone 111 a temnt nt told
