of the past 42 years and an up swing in rails in 39 of these years But in presidential years the summer movement is less pre dictable About half the time the pattern is a downward or sidewise movement prior to the nominating conventions Wall Street hates uncertainty and an upward movement between the conventions and election day Normally of course the stock market is expected to anticipate political trends and to discount them It failed to do this in 1948 and the unexpected victory of President Truman in that year I Shady dealings Bomber suspect had tangled background NEW YORK

steel by manu facturers that would last through the first half of 1960 at least A more recent conserva tive estimate puts steel opera tions at 95 per cent of capacity for the first six months The only major cloud on the economic horizon is the possibil ity of a railroad strike during the spring Lower farm prices and lower farm income will be a drag on the economy and dear money will slow up hous ing starts But industry in gen eral is expected to purr Indeed the unanimity of busi ness forecasters is found a bit terrifying by Malcolm P Mc Nair a Harvard University economist Warning of the possi
