Canada Exports Grain To Foreign Countries Domestic Milling Demand Is Active. Chicago, March 11 (AP)- Influ-fnced by reports that Fiance is threatening- to leave the league of Nations and is backed by RuB.sia, wheat prices displayed stubborn firmness today. Trade leaders said such a course on the part of France would further complicate an already acute trans-Atlantic political situation. Helping to sustain values were estimates that upward of 1,250,000 bushels of Canadian wheat had been taken for export, mainly to European continental countries. WHEAT CTOSKS UNKVKN. Wheat closed uneven c off to Uo up, compared with yesterday's finish; May MSWSiC, July 89 89c. Corn unchanged to c higher; May 60j (jO'-jC. Oats at iS'.,c decline, and provisions unchanged to a rise of 2c. Spreading operations in which May wheat was sought and new crop deliveries sold were a feature of trade during much of the day. On the other hand, there were purchases of Winnipeg wheat against sales of Chicago. An unsettling factor was that an overnight forecast of rains Southwest, where especially needed, failed to be fulfilled, only one spot in Kansas reporting moisture. FLO I'll TRAOK SLOWS. Shipping purchases out of Chicago indicated a persistently active domestic milling demand for wheat, although flour trade sources reported call for flour was slower, consisting mostly of small lots. Many would-be speculative buyers of wheat were cautious on account of assertions that the New York Stock Market displayed little evidence of misgivings In repaid to the European crisis. Besides, numerous traders took their cue from advices indicating every effort was being put forth abroad to prevent ultimate hostilities. Corn averaged a little higher, chiefly responsive to moist weather over much of the corn belt. Oats Bagged owing to increased primary arrivals. Provisions were firm, reflecting Upturns of hog values.

Washington, March 11 -Heal estate foreclosures in January were 29 3 per cent less than in January, ' i(1 bark , j vWleiul.t 193S. according to a compilation by the Federal Home Ijuid Hank Hoard of reports from 8114 identical communities embracing about half the population of the United States, and coveting farm and non-farm homes and commercial property. In the urban communities included in this survey, the decline was 32 per cent. The 12,340 foreclosures reported for January in this cross section of the country constitute the smallest number in any month since Januaty. 1932, which is the earliest month from which continuing figures arc avuilable. The decline of 5 per cent in number of foreclosures from December, 1935, to Janu ary, 193ti, was greater than the usual seasonal recession. j January thus emphasizes the steidy drop in foreclosures which; became pronounced In the lant ; quarter of 1935.

Washington, March 11 ( AP) Class 1 railroads won an initial victory today in their fight before the Interstate Commerce Commission for indefinite continuance of emergency freight surcharges, estimated to yield $104,500,000 of additional revenue annually. The commission overruled a mo tion by shipping groups to dismiss j the railroads' application and ordered further hearings. Scheduled to expire July 1, ihr. proposed surcharge continuance has been vigorously supported by rail spokesmen and actively opposed by coal and other shipping interests. In denying the dismissal move, the commission said it would hold "further hearings in Washington and at other points throughout the country to enable shippers and others to present evidence, hearings will be held late month, with specific dates places to be announced later. The motion to deny the railroads application was filed by the National Association of Railroad and Utilities Commissioners, the National Bituminous Coal Commission, the Wyoming Public Service Commission, the National Coal Association, and other shipping interests. The this and Chicago, March 11 (AP) A popular vote on what time it should be in Chicago was promised today by the City Council. Reversing itself in an unusual action, in answer to a letter from Mayor Edward J. Kelly, the Alder-manic body adopted a resolution asking the people to decide whether they want to keep the new Eastern Standard Time or to turn back the clocks to the Central Standard basis. Eastern time was made official for Chicago on March 1 under an ordinance passed by the Council last November. At that time, the Aldermen refused to authorize a referendum. "Certain citizens have raised objections" to the time change since the ordinance went Into effect, however, Mayor Kelly said in his letter, and a popular vote is "the one sure way to learn the true attitude of the majority of the people." Petitions for n referendum had already been put into circulation by opponents of Eastern time, who accused the Aldermen of "high handed tactics." Out of the proceeds, $150,000,000 of bills which mature March 16 will be retired with cash, leaving the "new borrowing" of the operation at $905,653,550. The Treasury said prospective purchasers offered to subscribe $8,005,931,550, representing $5,603,-388,750 for bonds, and the remainder in notes. The financing offering consisted of nbout $650,01)0.000 ill 12-15 year 2'i per cent bonds and $600,000,000 in l'j per cent five-year notes.
