Wall Street scene (1)

It was another wild and woolly week on Wall Street. Stock prices soared once again and the Dow Jones industrial average climbed to its highest level in 9 1/2 years, closing at 1,031.46 up 38.36 for the week. Investors piled on once more in expectation that the Federal Reserve Board would cut the discount rate to 9 percent from 9 1/2 percent. Blue chips and consumer stocks once more led the fray.
