EIGHTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 16 1936 HOGS 10-15 UP ON REDUCED RUN CATTLE PRICES * GAIN 25 CENTS Report Corn Shortage May Have Later Effect on Pork Market. CHICAGO, (JP) — Cattle prices advanced 25 cents in some cases Wednesday, partly erasing the pronounced downturn that occurred earlier in the week. Hogs also were higher but lambs were lower. With the supply decreased, all buying interests were active in the cattle trade and steers and yearlings showed a general upward trend. All grades and weights shared in the advance, with best yearling steers topping at $12.75, paid for prime 985 pound averages. Heifer yearlings sold as high as 512. The top on heavy steers, however, was $10.75. Hogs advanced 10 to 15 cents to an early top of $10.15. This upturn was the result largely of decreased receipt's, traders said, Wednesday's run falling 6,000 below advance estimates. The market ignored another decline in choice lijvht loin wholesale prices. The loin market range is now 15 to 17 cents, the narrowest in recent; record;!. There WES some trade gossip that the corn shortage in many parts of the farm belt has resulted in the marketing of many bred sows and small pigs that may have a telling effert on the pork and hog markets during the coming year. Fat lambs drifted lower, with some sales off as much as 25 cents. Best lambs were held as high as $9.

NEW YORK, (#)—Choppy trading seas rocked the stock market moderately Wednesday and prices were decidedly jumbled. While most of the leaders leaned to the offside, a number of oils and specialties maintained their balance at upper levels. Dealings, fast at the start, were unusualry slow near the final hour. Transfers were around 2,000,000 shares. Wall Street had varying excuses for the diffidence of the list. Among these were year-end adjustments,, some tax selling and the tendency of commission house customers to look for stimulation other than generally satisfactory business and industrial improvement.
