'he volume of public security.financing to obtain new capital
was fairb substantial last week and is expected to be somewhat larger
this week. During the week ending March 8. two large corporate issues
totaling $55 million and five State and local government bond issues
amounting to $97 million were offered. This week, ending March lju
two corporate issues totaling $35 million and a State of Illinois bond
issue with par value of $150 million are definitely scheduled, and
another $27 million State and local offering may be sold by negotiation.

Bond yields. Yields on most seasoned, long-term bonds were
stable last week. U. S. Government bond yields fell two basis points
to 3.92 per cent, but yields on corporate and State and local government
bonds were stable.
Yields on new corporate bond offerings, adjusted to an Aaa
basis, averaged 4.25 per cent last week, eleven basis points higher
than the previous week; most of this increase, however, was probably
due to the special characteristics of one of last week's offerings.
Short- and intermediate-term interest rates. Yields on
Treasury bill's and on 3-5 year U. S. Government obligations fell one
basis point each last week. The average effective Federal funds rate
continued at 3.00 per cent. Other rates were unchanged.
FNMA secondary market operations. Secondary market purchases
of mortgages by the Federal National Mortgage Association in January,
at $14.3 million, were little changed from the reduced December volume,
the smallest since the autumn of 1958. Offerings to FNMA, also continued relatively limited and were only slightly greater than purchases.
Sales to FNMA, which had begun to revive in November, expanded further
in January to $45.3 million. This was the largest amount for any month
since June.
In an attempt to counter these developments, FNMA raised its
selling prices to private investor's by 1/2 point, in early February.
Soon after it also introduced a 1/2 point increase in its buying price
for certain mortgages offered to it for immediate purchase. Excluded
from this action, however, were 5-3/4 per cent mortgages, prices for
which were already at the legal maximum of 100.
S.tock prices. Common stock prices advanced rather sharply last
week in moderate trading, recovering about one-half of the losses
of the two preceding weeks. Prices, as measured by standard and Poor's
composite index of 500 stocks, rose almost two per cent to close at 65.33
on March 8. Trading volume averaged 3.3 million shares a day, 0.5
million shares less than the average for the previous week and the lowest
weekly average since last October.
