GRAIN MARKETS SUFFER PLUNGE July Wheat, Representing! 1937 Crop, Takes Lead m Price Break. Stock List LIVESTOCK FORECAST. CHICAGO. 1'—Official estimated livestock receipts for Wednesdav: Cattle E.000: hoRs 23.000: ,<hecp lo.noo. CHICAGO, (.-P)--Jolted by the United States government report indicating unprecedented huge seeding of wheat, prices for that cereal plunged down 3"-s cents a bushel maximum Tuesday. July wheat, which represents the new 1937 crop, was under the greatest selling pressure, and led^ the break in prices. Despite the heavy selling, however, there was strong absorption of offerings on each fresh decline. At the close, wheat was 2 J ,a- 3Vs cents under Monday's finish, Dec. S1.35'.4-=s, May $1.29%-1.30, corn 3 4-lii cents off, Dec. .og'/j-U, May new $1.04' ; i-V4, oats l J 8-l'/2 cents down, and rye showing S'.g-SVi cents loss.

NEW YORK, (.'P)—Stocks took a turn for the better in Tuesday's market and many of Monday's fallen leaders rallied fractions to 3 or more points. Although the ticker tape was pressed occasionally in the first hour or so, dealings slowed appreciably later. Offerings were scarce near the final period and most of the favorites held around is}'? |_their best levels of the day. Transfers approximated 1,8 0 0,0 0 0 shares. While there was apparently less nervousness over auto parts and other strikes the situation was still viewed as a retarding market influence. fi.75 ' 50 Mason City Grain MASON CITY— For Tuesday No. 3 new yellow shelled corn ...................... 98c 4.75 | No. 4 new yellow shelled corn 96c tllH'AC.O LIVESTOCK. <Tiic-srt.-,y Markc: 1 ' CHICAGO. •'• —L'!

In a few instances the substantial losses of Monday were retrieved although most Rains established during the early trad- -A'ers- ivithtn fractional limits. ! Opinion and comment upon banking j sources on the government's move to "sterilize" newly mined and imported ! gold as part of its program of crelit control was studied with interest in bond market circles. Although opinion was divided as to its implications for long range effects on money and credit conditions, it carried no immediate influence, according to traders. U. S. government issues were mixed with most of the treasuries a shade lower. Dealers reported, however, that the market looked better, following a rather steady decline for the past week or more, American Typefounders 5s pointed the way for a broad rally in various in- | duslrlals. Rail liens were in demand at j fractionally higher levels. | Gainers at midday included Bethlehem Steel 4'/4S. St. Paul 5s, Chicago & North Western 4 3 is. Great Northern 4s, International Telephone 5s. National Dairy 3?'4S, Southern Railway 4s and Youngstown Sheet and Tube 3 J ,2S. Foreign bonds showed an uneven range.
