STOCK MARKET INACTIVE AFFAIR Tone Improves in Closing Trade After Downward Tendency. NEW TORK^ March 8. LB--The stock market was an inert trading affair today. Leading ihare* made infrequent appearances. A moderately lower price range predominated but the tone Improved somewhat ic the late dealings under buying in the metals. Liggett and Myers B got down around 3 points. Case waa also heavy. U. S. Steel, Chrysler and New York Central yielded small fractions. American Telephone WM steady while Auburn firmed about 2 points. Transfers approximated 900,000 shares. Stocks reflected complex copes and fears of traders who apparently were groping for clews aa to near- future trends. Declines ranged from fractlonÂ» to a point or more, but extreme dullness was the rule in early dealings. Grains and cotton offered no support to hesitant equities. These staples had an easier tone. Rubber and silver futures were fairly firm. International dollar rates were still relatively narrow. Bonds were steady.

Certain bonds of .the van fiwerlngen railroad group were actively sold at the open- Ing on published reports'-:that banking creditors might proceed to take control of the properties because of Interest defaults on loans. The-facts of the case, as explained In authoritative quartern, are that the defaults have been of a technical character since the bankers have. been accepting notes for interest due on the bank loans since the Van Swerlngen structure began to encounter financing difficulties in 1931. Some loans of the Allegheny corporation, which Is the top., holding company of Â· the Van Sweringen rail empire, slumped.more than 3 points .during the first hour. Other rail issues were not affected by the selling In this group and for the most part their tone was steady. Fractionally higher prices were paid from American and Foreign Power. 5s.

CHICAGO, March 0.-- --Â·ThÂ« narrow range In wheat today *hd In recent sessions ,, reflects the extreme conaervatUim displayed . toward the market, surrounded aa it ia by uncertainties In varlouB directions. TbÂ« disposition to avoid the Belling side is sUll plainly evident aad.lt.li generally felt that once these un- aettilng factors are cleared up, the trend ot thÂ« market will b* upward. Today's dull action was due largely to lack of buying power rather than to any pressur* and declines were of no Importance. Routine supply and demand news baa had only temporary . effect on -wheat for some time and this market hta held within relatively low limits, prices Sting now about 3c above the lerel prevailing a t . the . start of the new year, despite recent moisture .in the southwest. The forecast Indicated rain or enow over a large part of the belt tonight or tomorrow hut nothing waa expected In western .Kansas. Export demand for. Manltobas was 'relatively, stow. . Com--Declines today were confined to minor fractions, this market continuing to display a firm undertone. Cash Interests absorbed the scattered selling early and it waa noticed that the market turned dull at prices slightly undtr- yesterday's close. Bookings were small, amounting to 35,000 bushels. Cash sales were Improved at 52,000 bushels. Our'New York office reported 28.000 bushels of corn .to. Rotterdam yeeterday and It is Interesting to not*'that March corn In the latter market Is quoted at He premium over wheat, or at 52%c. It Is possible that we shall have narrow markets while awaiting news on the southwest crop and developments at Washington. Botter^-Tradinf; quiet but stocks held closely. There Is an apparent disposition for buyers to clear their purchases of last week before making new commitments "and In our Judgment, this accounts for much of the Inactivity. : Â· Â· Btrttft--Cash eggs continued flnn today trlth quotations %c to %c higher on all grrfdes. A good demand exists for cars and there appears to 'DÂ« a fairly good Jobbing business. , Comment--Continue of the opinion that both butter and ess 3 ^H In a11 probability meet good buying In setbacks.
