tiftV S9, 1* "MARKETS FOR TODAY STOCKS CONTINUE TO HIGHER LEVEL Heats Have Little Success In Efforts to Send Market Down — Business Outlook Shows Slight Change. lly OEOROE T. HUGHES. (Copyright, 1930, by Altooim Mirror.) • WAUL. STREET. NEW YORK, May St.—In quiet trading of pre-holiday Character, stocks with few exceptions "worked higier today. Here and (here Was a soft spot which the bear parly utilized vo bring out liquidation. but these were few in number and the weakness in these individual issues had no effect on the balance of the list. There was little change in the busi- li<iss outlook. According to the reports to the federal reserve system. April •ales of department stores were up from April a year ago, but that was probably due to Easter falling in April this year. The combined sales in March and April, however, showed a small gain over the same two months in 1929. On the other hand, commodity prices Were still depressed. From Pittsburgh and Chicago came the news that scrap steel had oeen marked down 25 cents a ton. The food stocks were the leaders in the early trade, with three new highs for the year in such representative issues as National Dairy Products, Borden and National Biscuit. There were some who predicted that National Biscuit was scheduled for a split-up later in the year. Various specialties were bought with seeming confidence, including Worthington Pump, also at a new peak price lor 1930 on expectation of the award of a profitable contract in connection with one of the proposed Interstate pipe line systems. lodaj's Mew kork Uuolutlons.

SCHNACKEt, (Copyright, 1930, by Altoona Mirror,) CHICAGO. May 29.—Wheat rallied after ari.easier trend in the early trading today. Heavy deliveries on May contracts totaling 857,000 bushels was a depressing factor at the opening, hut demand from wire houses increased later because of the lirmness in .Liverpool, which was sufficient to rally the market. Corn was firm after an early moderate break. Local professionals sold early, while cash interests bought September on the dip. Weather over most of the corn belt continued cool and light showers were predicted over northern Illinois, Indiana and Iowa. Oats followed other grains. Commission houses were buyers while the selling was of a local character. Provisions were easier. Cash Interests sellers. Open. High.

II. BIUMAttOSON. (Copyright, 1930. by Altoona Mirror.) NEW YORK, May 29.—Today's was another languid session on market, with an Irregular price fluctuations tho bond trend to The~Street had not. counted on a further reduction in the Bank of England rate, sothat its omission had no effect one way orthe other. A further cheapening of money just now would hardly affect the situation in- any event, as the current dullness Is a result of the recent flood of new flotations, together with the natural suspension of activity in the face .of the reparations bond issue. This issue will be not only a gauge of the investment market here and abroad, but will serve to release a large amount of new issues of foreign origin. One of these will be the British war loan refunding operation, and it Is estimated a total of well over $500,000,000 of other new foreign financing is in process of negotiation. Those preparing the market for the reparations bonds apparently have relaxed their watchfulness for the moment, as a result of the delay in arranging the terms of the new issue. German bonds dropped fractionally today. The foreign department as a whole gave a poor account of itself, the only exceptions to the general lethargy being the Japanese issues, which are .ibject to a considerable Investment ;mand from Japan Itself. New issues totalled only $2,000,000, ut an ottering of $14,040,000 Chicago, ock Island & Pacific equipment trust X.'s was awarded to a New York syn- cate and will shortly be reoffered.
