Soybeans Strong CHICAGO, June 5. IP— Old crop soybean contracts showed further strength on the Board of Trade today but the new crop deliveries, which also had gone up 10 cents yesterday, dropped under selling pressure. The soybean market continued very active with quick price changes. Most of the day, however, the old crop months were ahead t few cent* while the iwfc crop month! were down it lite amount. Other sections of the grain mar* ket were mostly lower, although a rally set In /shortly before the close. Good crop prospects and lack of export demand weighed down on the major grains. Rye turned In a satisfactory performance for the bulls, gaining several cents on top of a similar advance yesterday, Seeing'Eye Dog Hns Bank Book Can Sign Checks TULSA, Okla., June 5. /P-Duke the seeing-cye dog is careful where he sets his paw down nowadays.

Buyers are arriving here for the fall dress openings. Garment makers have been saying they expect the ordering for fall to be notably heavier this time. They hope they aven't just whistling in the dark. The garment, makers figure their industry may be In the same position as the shoe Industry. Shoe makers showed their fall lines a few weeks back, plckefl up hats- ful of orders, and put their factories back Into full, or nearly full, production again. Their long, private depresslqn was over. If the dress buyers follow the example of the shoe buyers, the garment district will be humming m the coming weeks. Prices are low this year, since the dress makers have been getting lower-priced fabrics. •»» The hopeful garment makers base their optimism on much the same things as brought about the revival of shoe business! lower prices to ternpt consume __ income levels, reduced tuvtt at the stores. , * The entire textile ind'fl* "been having a rocky tlitte jnonths.
