Inflation ideas among traders based on the election results were dominant influence In the fnarket. New crop deliveries again led the advance as traders felt that they were 'somewhat .under the high support price in prospect next season. Some traders felt that the loan on the 1949 cotton crop will, be at least 28.50 cents a pound for middling 15-16 inch cotton. Nesv crop months sold somewhat under that level. Heavy buying continued in cotton futlures, reflecting inflationary .fienurrient among traders who locked for large spending and high fai-TO support fromthe next Congress. . - ' • Futures closed $1,30 to $3.85 0 bale higher thnn the previous close. • dc high .31.'40 — low 31:14 — last 31.37-36 up 20-27 Mch.high 31.44 — low 31.12 — last ; 31.41^43 up 31-33 May high' 31.35 — losv 30.87 — last 31.33-35 uD 4G-48 J1.V high 30.35 — low 29.80 — last 3,0,33-35 up 56-58 Oct high 28,52 '— low 27.79 — last .28.49 up 69 Df."

GRA'IN AND PROVISON Chicago, Nov. 4 — (fp)~ Advances In wheat ran up to around 4 cents at times today as 'post-election semtiment expanded. The big gains'- were scored in July and September Contracts and much of the buying came from individuals Who 'had been shot in ' these deliveries. The short-qpvering movement in deferred wheat ' contracts got underway yeisterddy, following the election upset. It was based on the belief the government price sup- ort -level for 1949 wheat will be higher than -present futures prices. AH other grains, as well as soybeans, -followed wheat higher.

He had answer only for the questions that suited him. After these revelations, there was little to do except read or listen to his speeches. And the Wallace speeches probably induced the climatic yawn of his campaign. For this he can blame those ghosl writers who, if not Communists themselves, had certainly cribbed extensively from the comrades' manual of propaganda. Like so many Communist harangues, Mr. Wallace's speeches never became very specific. Consequently they never became very interesting. Day after day he kept whal- ;ing away at punching bags labeled Big Business, \Vall Street. War Mongers, Bi-Partisans, Monopolies, But they all looked alike. And the more he punched the more indistinguishable they became. .Finally most of the public got tired and went away. Indignation had melted and enthusiasm had evaporated under pressure of the suffocating boredom. . Mr. .Wallace must have realized himself that he had laid an egg far bigger than any that were thrown at him. For he bade farewell to his 1948 chances a month before election and started planning for "after Nov. 2." But the third-party candidate will face some grave difficulties in planning for the future. The widespread hostility that he first aroused would be hard 'enough to lick. The indifference that succeeded it will be even harder. Fov how are you going to enlist prospects for a "Gideon's army" if you can't keep the prospects awake? Election of Truman Cheered .". By BRUCE w! MUNN London, Nov. 4 — iUP> — Diplomats from No'rway to Greece cheered President Truman's election today as n guarantee there v.-ould be no change in American foreign policy. Western Europe, bent on rearmament and recovery, also gratefully hailed the victory of Mr. Tru- inan as a forerunner of continued American aid. The iron curtain countries indicated boredom was their only rc- j action. Premier • Einar Gebhardsen of Norway said the victory would .serve to sf.abiliy.e U. S. foreign policy, a statement that was echoed by the Greek press. But the Communist view was (that both major candidates were tools of imperialistic American capitalist which was seeking "to liquidate the last vestige of democratic freedom in the U. S. and unleash a new war." Those who welcomed the victory said it would reveal to the Russians that there is no doubt about American policy toward Moscow and that there will be no brake on organization of anti-Communist economic and military blocs. "Truman, who once played the piano for Stalin at Potsdam, will sec to it that Stalin does not play first fiddle in our < hemisphere," the Copenhagen National Tidenden said. The conservative Daily Mail said in a front page editorial that Mr. Truman had scored "one of the most remarkable election victories of modern times", and that the (British fonle welrompd it." ' The Laborite Daily Herald viewed trie result as a repudiation of the British Conservative view that democratic opinion througnput the world ••• was swinging - to • • the ripht. •• ' •••• •• '• .-• •• , Semi-official' reaction in White'- Ihaii was mat Mr: Truman now would feej justified in 'proceeding at full speed with his .plans for, .financing the military phases of the western union agreement. Winston Churchill, in a brief statement, congratulated the U. S. for conducting a hard fought election campaign without impairing the bi-partisan foreign policy "on which so much that we fought for depends." In Moscow the newspapers Izves- tia and Pravda reported :Miv Truman's election briefly —on .the last pages — without comment. Some 50 lines were devoted to the Congressional .returns, Governor Dewey's election statement and President Truman's pledge to "dedicate all my efforts to insure world peace, prosperity and happiness for our entire people here." Jonesboro Vet Kilted ih Accident JonSboro, Nov. 2 — (7P) — A Jonesboro Purple heart veteran was killed th'is- morning when his new truck and a southbound FHsdo passenger train collided two miles west of here.
