But from the standpoint ot the financial community, the event is of the past, and this Influence upon day-to-day occurrences is buried. Of course, If over subscription , to the Issue should prove disappointing, concern as to federal credit tnay be aroused; but the general opinion Is that the results will be "satisfactory." TOOK DEALERS Quick closing of the boolta took dealers by surprise and left all wondering an to cash allotments. They Tvondered if some subscribers might f i n d themselves with more bonds than they wanted. Trend of government bond quotations Thursday could have been more Impresaivi Prices of outstanding Issued Tvere off as much 'as three-quarters of a point at the close. Dealers felt that in view of the 2Vi per cent Interest rate of the new issue, the group being refunded should have performed more strongly. NOT UNTIL MABCH la The government probably will not be In the market for f u n d s again before the r quarterly date, March 15. With the money subscribed under the current offering am the replenishing effect of December Incamt payments, the cash account of the govern' ment will approximate 1 billion 300 millions This. It t! believed, will be s u f f i c i e n t for tho needs of the administration for the nex three months.

(.-P)--Trade and business have resumed forward strides following the lull in the closing week of November, the Dun and Bradstreet Weekly Review said today. "With no uncertain force," asserted the agency, "consumer buying was manifest immediately following Thanksgiving, and to the breadth of the Christmas demand was added the acceleration incident to the opening of an entirely new field of merchandise revenue, with the definite ending of the thirteen-year period of prohibition restrictions. "The sudden shifting of so many men and women from relief roles to gainful occupations through the efforts of the civil works administration has brought encouragement to nearly every section of the country, giving an impetus to retail demand, especially in necessities, which has been widespread." . 2.15fl3.10: 180 to 200 I J2.90U3.30; me. . . uni weights 200 to 220 Ibs. 52.flO@3.30; 20 to 250 Ibs.

(/P)--Stocks quietly backed and filled in a narrow trading range today. Late quotations were a trifle mixed, but the undertone of the market remained fairly steady. Alcohols braced after forenoon heaviness, National Distillers cancelling at point loss. Santa Fe, U. S. Steel and Allied Chemical ruled about unchanged. Auburn, Loews and American Telephone were firm, but United Aircraft, Chysler, Case and American Smelting were easy. Transfers approximated 1,300,000 shares. Business and industrial news seemed to have supplanted at least for the time being, the monetary controversy as a market influence. With the gold rate again unchanged, the dollar moved narrowly In foreign exchange dealings. Grains were off and most other commodities Were somewhat lower. Cotton drooped after early steadiness. Rail loans led the bond market in another advance and TJ. S. government securities showed some improvement. A decrease in carloadings of 85,922 for the week ended Dec. 2, which included the Thanksgiving holiday, was not unexpected. There had been an estimated seasonal decline of. some 74,000. There were predictions ot a sharp rebound for the week ending tomorrow. Stock List Ji'EW YORK STOCKS. NEW YORK, Dec. 8. Wl-- Flnnl Quotations.

There wns no material pressure but aggressive support was lacking most of the session. A good part of the trade was In small lots, the lilnneas of the market causing prices to be aslly Influenced. Weather conditions over the winter wheat belt were regarded as somewhat more favorable, though no precipitation of consequence was reported. Dry weather reports were received during the day from the American northwest, which section Is still reported as lacking in aub- soil moisture nnd the Oklahoma weekly report mentioned the need of moisture In numerous, sections. Export sales in all positions reported at half million Canadian wheat. CORN--December corn was u n d e r some pressure today but the deferred deliveries were steady to a. fraction lower. Bookings today wers 30.000 bushels, somewhat larger than earlier this week. At the same time advices from the country confirmed the prevailing tendency of the producer lo lia'd Wa- com, for lh« government loan. There were ntlmalions thftt the east was showing more interest regarding future supplies of this grain and Inquiries were in the market. No business of consequence developed however. A late wire from New York reported aome cash com Bold at equnl to 58c »t Liverpool for No 2 yellow. We do not expect much change from prevailing levels in tomorrow', short session unless there are new developments. I D E A D Animals of All Kthda Removed Mason CityRenderingCo. We pay phone calls.
