December led the decline in wheat on selling prompted by a reduction of a cent in the Commodity Credit Corporation's buy- ling price at Philadelphia. Deferred j showed some resistance but Jills* was down a cent from a seasonal high of fl.93% bushel reached earlier. May July CORN— Dec. Mar. May July OATS— Dec. Mar. May July RYE— Dec. Mar.

In one direction lay the crooked lane to Gangland and State's Prison. But you helped start him on the other road—the straight path to Good Citizenship. Red Feather dollars-found a wholesome environment for the kid, where for the first time he knows affection, security, intelligent guidance. It was a bargain buy. A criminal cos,ts a lot rnore than that. This year other kids need the same help. Remember all those youths when you're asked to give. And remember the others, too— the aged, the ill, the handicapped, to whom your Red Feather dollars will bring healing and comfort and courage. Thanks, Mister! Thanks for what you did. Thanks for doing it again.
