12 DES MOINES TRIBUNE! Wheat Down, Corn Higher CHICAGO, ILL. U" Grain future market vrr unsettled Wednesday, thti old crop deliveries, at times lower, closing; higher in some pits and off In others. In all pits traders were nervous and alert to any higns of additional tenders on December contracts in which trading will elosp, Thursday. ' At the close wheat was cent higher to 1 ' lower, (kirn unchanged to 2 cents higher. Oats off to cent. Kye 4 cent higher to 't lower, and barley up 3g cents to off . LHitAUU, wneat was a little weaker in quiet dealings on the board of trade here Wednesday while other grains held a narrow path and were generally about steady. Barley was an exception, being down with wheat. The trade in com was extreme Jy light. There were resting orders under the market and offerings were small, making for very narrow movement. Going into the second hour of trading corn and rye were cent higher tft off, wheat li t0 li cpr,t lower, oats ' to 4 ct-iiv down. up and barley cent A bearish report of winter wheat is expected to be released by the government this afternoon. The acreage sowed is believed to be larger than last year and the crop is in much better condition, due to improved moisture supply. Sharp declines in market receipts of corn 10 million bushels a week in November to five million bushels a week in December at Chicago may cause the war food administration to deny distillers unlimited use of the grain during the January whisky holiday, a trade publication reported. No definite decision had been reached, the report ado?ed, and there still remains the chance the government will permit unlimited use of corn. Terminal market stocks of corn during the last several weeks were described as "disappointing ly low." The Dec. 16 report showed only 13,682,000 bushels inj terminal Btorage. ' Demands for the beverage holiday, market; sources estimated, would run from five to nine million bushels. Des Moines Grain.

Swanstrom, Doylestown, Penn., described events leading to his resignation as president of Elastic Stop Nut Corp. of Amer ica, Union, N. J., during securities and exchange commission proceedings .Wednesday, to ' determine whether the company has violated securities legislation in registering its debentures and applying for listing of its common stock on the New York stock exchange. Swanstrom said he served from the death in 1Q40 of his brother, C. A. Swanstrom, founder of the company, to July 30, 1942. He was succeeded by William T. Hed-lund, whose suicide on Nov. 29 was followed by an SEC order suspending trading in the company's common stock and the present investigation of its cor porate background. John F. Casey, Pittsburgh, chairman of the board, and Leslie Merrill, .president of Flattie's parent, American Gas Accumulator Co., Elizabeth, N. ,1., were among directors who approached him in 1912 on the need for "more executives to be employed by the company," Swanstrom said. "I agreed, but said they should be "key men' since the future of the company was based on pro duction," he added. Swanstrom said he emphasized that the company did not need "top executives as such." When David Shaw-Kennedy, another director, invited him-to a meeting of the "more important members of- the board," Swanstrom said he declined the invitation because he was led to understand that other members of the management were not invited. Shaw-Kennedy later wrote asking him to call a meeting of the board on July 20, 1942, to amend the by-laws and provide for a vice chairman of the board, Swanstrom said. He declined. Shaw-Kennedy also suggested that Whitley C. Collins, Beverly Hills, Cal., should be made vice-president In charge of sales policy, Swanstrom Kaid. At the July 20 meeting, called over his objection, the by-laws creating the position of vice chairman were passed and about 10 days later Hedlund was appointed to the post, Swanstrom said. He then resigned from the presidency. "In general, the old duties of president were transferred to the vice chairman and the duties of president were to take the place of vice chairman if he should be absent," Swanstrom said. Swanstrom now is president of Penn Engineering and Manufacturing Corp., Doylestown, which also manufactures stop nuts. St. Louis. ST.

The new undersecretary of state and four of the five new assistant secretaries were sworn into office Wednesday, and Secretary of State Edward R. Stet-tinius, jr., immediately began carrying- out plans for rcorgan izing the department to deal with momentous foreign affairs of the present and future. AH of Stettlnius "team" of assistants except Brig. Gen. Julius C.

(P) Col lapse of an early boomlet in the rail shares upset tho stock mar ket'a balance Wednesday and I brought declines ranging from fractions to more than a point in tho leaders. The market w m sennit h e to the reported fresh gains by the Nazis jn their counteroffensive and the disinclination of Allied lieiidojimrlerH to disclose a complete picture of Its sweep. Some or the carriers climbed a point or so soon after the opening and when these were erased doubts arose as to the market's1 technical position after its sub stantial rise in the first half of December, Late m the closing hour many of the pivotals were moderately above the day's lows. Transactions amounted to around 1,600,- 000 shares. At lower levels in tlie curb were American Light ,v Traction, Brewster Aero and Ni agara Hudson Power, Rails on their early upthrust attained new seven year highs to the accompaniment of Wall Street predictions that continuance of war-time revenues for any turtner. considerate period would mean more debt reductions and additional strengthening of finances of many of the larger systems and corresponding ad vantages to the smaller, roads. Stirring interest among holders of steel shares was Iron Age's re port that with the industry wind ing up the highest steel produc tion year in history around 88,- 500,000 tons "activity on urgent war requirements is increasing by leaps and bounds." . Bonds Lower NEW YORK. N. Y. (TP) Re sponding to a sharp drop in car--rier shares, many rail loans declined fractions to around three points in Wednesday's bond market.
