Opening -at c decline to T4o advance, July, $1.02 "5 1.03. wheat afterward underwent a oulck tumble all around. Corn started unchanged to l'ic hlffher. and subsequently suffered a general fall. In a storm of stop-loss selling, wheat values crashed soon to below J1.00 a bushel for July delivery, and then fn rapid succession for SeptenTer also. The breaks In prices carried July later to under 98rj ,an overnight loss of more than 4c. Changes of a cent a minute In blackboard quotations were frequent, with trading on a big scale. A reason for the stampede to sell what was that weather Indications pointed to likelihood of Canadian rains spreading Into droueht stricken reirlona south of the International boundary. Such a development would mean at least some relief to domestic flprlns; what crops which have been acutely distressed Adding to the downward Impetus of the wheat market were advices of good rains In Idaho and Montana. It was noted th moisture area appeared to be movln? toward the wheat belts of th Oakotas and Minnesota. Rallies which at times lifted wheat valu-.i to above J1.00 for all deliveries were based la reel v on statements by a leading trade authority that the United states farm stocks of wheat had been officialiv overestimated at least 35,-tino nno ' bushels. He declared that current suerestions from Washington that th I'niied States would have, a. wheat carryover of ;50,li'-0f" bushels July 1 were therefore r.S.onn.fno bushels too large, and that 'Washington suggested forecasts on domestic requirements of wheat were likewise out of line, ludged by past experience. In view of chances of further shrinkage of current crop production, he assorted it to be easily possible that at the end of the next crop year, the United States would possess wheat stocks below the margin of national safety. Corn and oats chiefly trailed after wheat. Car lots today: Wheat. 7 cars, with 4 of contract grade; last year, 8 cars, '"prn. 44 cars. with 35 of contract grade; last year. 229 cars.

Hutton found his daughter, Princess Barbara Hutton Mdivani, in a medical clinic here today and was visibly annoyed about something after he visited her. Hutton. who had been in a fine humor when his son-in-law, Prince Alexis Mdivani, greeted him at Southampton, appeared angry aft er he and Mrs. Hutton had been with their daushter for an hour and a half. The Huttons did not reveal what had disturbed them nor would they discuss the health of the princess, who earlier this week had been reported able to make shopping tours from her hotel. PLANS INDEFINITE It was not apparent whether the princess will return with her parents to the United States, but in any event the prince said he could not leave London this month as he has considerable polo play ins to do. Prince Alexis met Hutton at Southampton when he arrived on the Bremen and the two discussed the princess' health. Mr. and Mrs. Hutton and the prince motored to London to gether, but the son-in-law did not accompany the Huttons to the clinic. "Prince Mdivani is a square shooter and a great fellow," was Hutton's estimate of the son-in- law at Southampton. Regarding his trip, Hutton said we have heard rumors about Barbara's health; naturally we have been very worried." Quintuplets Will Go to Worlds Fair NORTH BAY, Ont. June 1. (AP) The Rev. Fr.

In the interval, Dionne is to receive $100 weekly and the family will remain at home until their physician says they are fit to be moved a matter which he indicated would take two months.

(AP)-Senate republicans relented in their filibuster against the administration tariff bill late today and consented to a bi-partisan compromise agreement under which a final vote will be started on all amendments and the measure itself not later than 5 p. m. Monday. The break in the more than two weeks of debate, in which half a dozen republican senators ignored the wishes of their leader and persisted in making from two to five speeches each on the bill, came after Senator Harrison (D., Miss.), pilot of the legislation. j threatened a long night session 1 to wear down the opposition. NO MEETING TODAY Harrison also served notice of an equally lengthy session tomorrow, a customary holiday, but under the compromise agreement there will be no meeting tomorrow. Republican Leader McNary insisted on a "no-work" Saturday on the ground that much private work had accumulated which demanded the attention of senators. Under the agreement, the senate will meet at ?1 a. m. Monday. WILLIAM BOOK, HEAD OF RELIEF BODY, RESIGNS INDIANAPOLIS, June 1. (AP) Resignation of William H.

STOCK CONTROL BILL APPROVED; IS SENT TO F. R. WASHINGTON, June 1. (AP) The stock exchange control bill reached the end of a long, dispute-strewn pathway through congress tonight with final approval by both houses. House and senate, without rec ord votes, and with little debate, accepted the conference report compromising controversies between the two branches, and the measure was dispatched to the White House for President Roose velt's signature. Administration assurances to the industrial and financial world that the bill's rider modifying the se curities act of 1933 would protect honest businessmen marked final action on the measure in the sen ate. CREATES NEW COMMISSION This assurance was voiced by Senator Byrne (D., S. C), an ad ministration spokesman who led the move to modify the securities act. Byrnes spoke after the senate had adopted the conference re port without a record vote. The unanimity of the action was in sharp contrast to the conflict and controversy which accompanied the bill's previous course through congress. As finally approved by the sen ate, the bill provides for the creation of a new commission of five members to be appointed by the president, to regulate the nation's stock exchanges. CONTROL OF CREDIT Margin regulations will be set up by the federal reserve board to control advances of credit by banks or brokers on the purchase of securities. Though the board will not have to comply, the law will carry a congressional suggestion that credit be limited to 55 per cent of the current value of a security, or 100 per cent of the lowest price it touched in the preceding three years provided this was not more than 75 per cent of the current price. Prohibitions will be contained in the law against manipulative operations, and the commission will have power to require full financial reports from corporations listing securities. An officer or director of a corporation could not be sued for damages resulting from a false statement by an expert if he proved he had no reasonable ground to believe, and did not believe, the statement when made was untrue. Defendants in such damage suits could reduce liability by showing that some of the loss was due to other causes than the untrue statement. Plaintiffs w Id have to prove they purchased on reliance upon the false statement after the corporation had made available to security holders an earnings state ment covering 12 months of operation subsequent to the filing of tha registration statement.

BO WEN) There was music in the air and beauty on the stage at the Mars theater Friday afternoon and evening when Henry Santrey and his internationally famous band, with his "Soldiers of Fortune" made their debut in one of tha most lavish and smartest revues ever presented here. Entering from the foyer of the theater and ascending to the stage, the band opened the revue just one big hit from beginning to end. Beginning with Santrey, and why shouldn't we? He is the head man and he's been places. Listen to this, besides singing in grand opera for four years, he studied in Italy and has made three trips around the world with his band. Played as long as three years in one theater alone, and even tried out the old saying, "music soothes the savage beast," when he took his band to the Fiji Islands to play for the can nibals. In gathering his group of entertainers Santrey certainly did a good job. There's Estelle Fratus, for instance, the little girl who hails from Australia. She was with Earl Carroll's Vanities for nine months and is one great tap dancer, besides having a vivacious personality that puts a song over with just the right amount of snappiness. Edythe Rogers, the cigarette girl, whose pictures have appeared all over the world in advertisements, is a striking blonde and another headliner. Her impersonations of Mae West, Greta Garbo and Jean Harlow are clever, but when she takes her violin in hand that's everything. Having played in several symphony orchestras, Miss Rogers is a master of the most difficult numbers. Loretta Grey, little but mighty, is just so much dynamite when she takes the stage with her col lege tune and peppy dancing. Six very pretty girls, called the Santrey Dancing Dolls, appear twice during the revue in well executed routine numbers. Included in the revue are the Dudley brothers, a quarter of four young colored men, who come very near to making one believe thev are listening to the famous Mills brothers. Williams and Walker. sons of the old stage favorites of the same names, do some intricate tap steps as does "Little Esther," very young and very small, who also taps as only those of her race can. Instead of the usual finale. Mr. Santrey informs the audience that that is one thing his revue doesn't have. Ah, but they do have something better, and just as unique as the rest of the show, before the last curtain each one of the artists comes on the stage and leaves the theater by a runwav into the aisle.
