Selling was most active and price im
pairment most severe in a number of low
grade "promotion" issues, especially oils
and a few shares of no special classifica
tion. The reaction ultimately affected
other stocks of more stable character. -
Among issues exempt from the general
decline were rails, metals and representa

States steel, for example, continued to re
flect its strong tonnage position.
The money and foreign exchange mar
kets contributed largely to the shrinkage
of quotations. . Demand loans manifested
marked relaxation, but time money was al
most unobtainable, even at 64 per cent
for the short dates. 1
' Partly because of the latest and more
menacing conditions in eastern Europe, but
mainly because of continued delay va ef
fecting remedial measures, foreign ex
change once more moved strongly against
London and European centers. The ster
ling rate fell to $3.68 U.
The receptive -attitude of American in
vestors and bankers toward foreign olfer
ings was strikingly illustrated in the suc
cess which attended the $25,000,000 Bel
