Profit-taking after Tuesday'; advance to new seasonal highs climaxing several weeks of climbing prices, kept wheat pretty much under control. However there was one flurry of buying which sent the December and May contracts above Tuesday's peak for a time. A continued small run of cash corn, plus a good demand for available supplies, was one fac tor in the corn strength. Some buying of cash oorn is believed tc be coming from those who wer< short at the time September fu tures expired and now must ge the cash grain to make deliveries. Soybeans found the going rather tough, but late in the session made up losses recorded during early dealings. The bean harvest in central Illinois now is in full swing. Some selling followed a trade report that France had indefinitely postponed prospective purchases of cash beans. Oats and rye held firm, but lard had an easier undertone most of the session. Wheat closed 1 to li- lower, December $2.25-$2.15i, corn was -| to 1 cent higher, December $1.181$1.18|, oats were 4 lower to g higher, December G84-, rye was i-f higher, December $1.45$-i, soybeans were unchanged to £ lower, November $2.26J-$2.27, and lard was 13 cents lower to 3 cents a hundred pounds higher, October $10.87.

Gains of fractions to around 2 points were maintained as Wall Street studied implications of the latest maneuvers between U. S. Steel Corp. and the CIO United Steel Workers. News that the union had renewed its insistance that social benefits be financed entirely by the industry appeared a short time before the -market closed. Trading slowed to a walk as the news circulated. Earlier activity, though, was enough to lift turnover for the day to around 1,300,000 shares. In mid-morning a sudden burst of buying lifted prices fractions to 2 points or so. CHICAGO PRODUCE (Wedneid»y'» Market) Chlcaro. VP)—Butter nervous. Receipts 089,939.
