Stock Market Grows Wobbly New York, (#)—The stock market developed a wobbly streak after an opening burst o£ strength Wednesday. The early rise carried the general price level to a new peak for the year. The market, on average, remained higher but individual advances were chopped down and a good handful of stocks backed up. a trifle. Changes either way were limited mostly to less than a point. Heavy turnover during the first hour, when buying was most aggressive, helped to swell the day's business to the largest total in around 3 weeks. Sales were at the rate of around 1,500,000 shares for the full session.

Grains Weak on Trade Board Chicago, (/P)—Grains weakened late in the session on the board of trade Wednesday. In most instances losses were not large, although they ran to moire than a cent in soybeans. The July wheat contract dropped quite sharply toward the close. This represents 1950 wheat and its price trend was greatly influenced by the running battle in Washington over farm legislation. Easiness in soybeans followed a retreat by lard and cottonseed oil futures. Hog runs are expanding and local lard stocks are ex- expected to increase as a result, traders said.
