SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 18 1936 HOGS STEADY TO 15 CENTS LOWER SUPPLY MORE THAN EXPECTED Choice Lightweights Hold Up; Top Price Drops to $10.15. CHICAGO, OT—The hog market supply was stepped up enough Friday to permit buyers to gain control and force the lowering of quotations. "With the run oJ 25,000 exceeding advance estimates by 7,000 head, sellers let go their receipts at prices that were unchanged to as much as 15 cents below Thursday's average. Choice light weights held up. The top, however, showed the full decline, falling to $10.15. The cattle run dwindled to week-end proportions and, with common and medium grades predominating, buyers showed little enthusiasm. Prices were generally unchanged, however, but there were no sales in early rounds at recent top level above $12. The stocker and feeder market was slow and mostly unchanged. Shipments of feeder cattle into the corn belt from July through November have been the smallest in 18 years, according to a leading trade authority. This, livestock men said, indicates the influence that the small corn crop has had on cattle feeding operations. Fat Iambs gained 10 to 15 cents, the early top reaching $9.15. Wholesale pork loin and beef carcass prices were unchanged.

CHICAGO, (&) — Soaring 5% cents a bushel maximum here Friday, wheat in all the world markets reached the highest price level attained in years. Speculative trading fever was strongly in evidence, aroused by big export purchases, estimated as totaling around 2.000,000 bushels at Winnipeg, and by a renewal of war talk. Rye. a companion breadstuff, continued to skyrocket with wheat. At the close, wheat futures in Chicago were 2\- 2 to 4% cents above Thursday's finish, December $1.39% to S1.3914, May S1.33H to $1.33%: corn '/R cent off to ] i cent up, December S1.08 n s to SI.081,4, May new S1.04'A to $1.04%: oats '/4 to % cent advanced, and provisions varying from 5 cents decline to a gain of 2 cents.
