The .sudden Increase. In arrivals was more sensational In view of the fact Ihui many stockmen consider Tucs. (lay as a normally slack day. One stockynrda soucc believed that shippers were trying to got their animals to market before pos- flWc rclmposltlon of OPA ceilings. On the basis of arrivals, It appeared that lhc domestic meat supply would be belter filled for a lime al least, no matter what congressional action wns taken on the OPA.
