CHICAGO, .Tune 2.— Extreme nervousness characterized trade in wheat today. Shorts were inclined to take profits on setbacks while bulges brought out free offerings from northwest houses. Scattered commission house selling and local pressure Influenced by nn easy tone at Liverpool brought nn opening dip in wheat. -in characterized the stock market today on the resumption of trading after the holidays. Special Issues responded to news developments, but the great bulk of the list simply drifted, with a minimum of activity. The most encouraging item over the ^week-end was the Montgomery Ward May sales statistics. For the month the total was $25.050,304, an increase of 26 per cent over May, 1929, and for the five months the sum was $106.195.803, an increase of 5.3 per cent over the same period in 1929. Montgomery Ward stock advanced over 2 points on rapid trading, part of the demand of course coming from the shorts. Another interesting piece of news •was the cut in the prices of Ford cars. This was seemingly without effect on the motor shares. General Motors sagged but not enough to be of any significance and the rest of the automobile stocks were dormant. A real break came into J. I. Case. •which dropped over 12 points before support appeared. Here the story was that there had been a falling off in demand from abroad, but Case is one of those stocks which have been bid up extravagantly and was in a weakened position. To a lesser degree, the same was true of Worthington Pump, which sold off today on realizing by trader*. Today's New York Quotations.

Shorts covered and brought prices to above the previous close wlicn northwest houses sold. Strength in corn was due largely to an oversold pit condition. Prices eased witli wheat at the start, but good commission house buying disclosed a lack of offerings and caused shorts to cover. Pi-ires moved up quickly until selling against indemnities caused a setback. Oats showed good gains on short covering influenced by reports of good buying by cash houses. Provisions were lower.
