Market Notes By TICKER TAPE Tlie volume of business Jn tiie district apparently declined by a very small amount in November from, the level of October, after allowance for purely seasonal changes. The adjusted laSex of bank debits at 84 cities declined from 54 in October to 52 In November. The country check clearings Index decreased from 73 in October to 77 In November. The Index of miscellaneous freight car- oadlngs was reduced from 62 In October to 31 In November. On the other hand, the nde.x of l,c.l. carload Ings rose from C9 60. As compared with the totals for NoTem- :cr a year ago, the volume of business In the. month Juat closed continued to show a general Increase, although the Increase wan not as great as that which has prevailed n earlier months of the year. This was partly due to tlie decline in the level of business thla year and partly due to a sporadic Increase in business during November a year ago. Bank debits In November were 1 per cent larger than In November a year ago. Other Increases occurred In country check clearings, freight cnrloadlngs, flour production, copper output, butler production, marketings of durum, wh«at, cattle and calves, furniture sales, country lumber sales, securities sales and wholesale, trade. Decreases occurred in building permits and contracts. Hour shipments, linseed products shipments and marketings of bread wheat, rye. flax, bogfl and aheep. Final figures for department store sales reported by representative city stores were 3 per cent smaller in November this year than the total reported for the same month year. COUNTRY" CLEARINGS SHOW INCREASE The records for the first half oC December for bank debits and country check clearings show exactly opposite tendencies for the two series of figures. Country check :tenrlngs for the ft rat 15 business days of December were 24 per cent larger than In .he corresponding days a year ago. If thla relatively better volume should continue dur- ng the remainder of December, the country check clearings Index for December would e several points higher than that for November. This would reverse the downward .rend of the past few months. On (he other h n n d , bank debits at 17 reporting cities d u r i n g the two weeks ending Dec. 13 were only 2 per cent larger ttmn In the corresponding weeks last yean This would Indicate that the Index of bank debits for December would Ije lower than the index for November and would probably decline to the lowest level since last February. KAU.M INCOME LARGER The estimated cash Income during November to northwestern farmers from seven .mportant Items was 5 per cent Inrger than Lhe Income from, the same Items in November a year ngo. Increases over last year's Income occurred In durum wheat, potatoes, lalry products and hogs. Decreases, occurred ,n Income from bread wheat, rye and flax. Prices of all of the grains and of veal calves, hogs, lambs, ewe?, butler, milk and potatoes were higher In November than a year ago. Prices of butcher «t«ers, feeder steers, hens and eggs were lower than last year's Novmber prices. The price of butter broke sharply on Dec. IS, establishing a new post-war low price on that date. Butter prices, using Chicago quotations for creamery extras as typical, declined from 22',5 cents on Dec. 1, which was the highest price of the month, to 15VI on Dec. IS. The price recovered *o 10 cents on Dec. 20. This drop In the price of butter tliit not affect farm Incomu from butter during December, since the cream checks which are distributed to farmers in the early part of December arc based on No- rembcr production and prices. The lower rice for butter will seriously a f f e c t the farm Income from butter during January, especially If the low price prevails throughout the remainder of December.

(St--Tee stock market moved steadily upward today on a wide front. Late gains ranged from 1 to around 4 points. Considerable year-end tax selling, which Is for cash the balance of this week, was readily absorbed. American Telephone was a conspicuously strong spot, advancing IVi points. Allied Chemical gained as much. Issues showing advances of 2 to more than 3 included Western Union, Liggett and Myers B. Consolidated Gas, Case, du Pont, New York Central and U. S. Smelting. Transfers approximated 1,600,000 shares. The "cash-and-carry" transactions which, under the two day delivery rule, are only ones now recordable In 1933 income statements, were quite numerous in the first hour. They continued to make up about one-quarter of the activity after the ticker tape had slowed down appreciably. Grains and cotton were rather narrow, but most other commodities were fairly firm. The dollar moved a bit higher in relation to leading foreign exchanges as the domestic gold price was again unchanged. Bonds improved in spots. Despite the generally cheerful demeanor of most traders, and the apparently bright outlook for trade and industry during the early part of next year, some market commentators were advising against the relaxation of caution in extending commitments. Curb Market NSW YORK, Dec. 28. IJ1V-With the bulk of 1933 tax selling apparently out oE the way, curb prices maintained their upward direction today. The tape was well dotted with, transactions "for cash," since tax offerings can still be made In that manner through Saturday, but the general Jlat had a good backlog of buying orders and prices worked higher In moderately active trading. Utilities again forged ahead. American Gas, Electric Bond and Share anJ Niagara Hudson were fairly strong at times Elsewhere, gains of tractions to around 2 pointa were made by American Cyanamld "B'," Canadian Industrial Alcohol "A," Newmont aiinine 1 , Lake Shore Alines, Safely Car, Sherwln Williams, Swift and company, Hiram \valker, Distillers-Seagrams and Pioneer Gold. Pennroad, cities Service, American Superpower and Standard Oil of Indiana were steady. Bond Market NEW YORK. EM. 23. (.TV-Bonds had a steady tone today, but most markets were tliin. A few issues lost ground on small transfers which were thought to have In- volved'tax loss aeilltig. H. E. governments departed but Little during the early trading from yesterday's closltjg levels, A few of the treasury loans were up 2-32nda or a point and the rest were unchanged to 1-32 lower. Secondary rntla and a considerable number o( the lower priced classlfloationa in other groups rnafntained their positions (airly well despite an aljscncQ of active buying fntereat. Price changea In the foreign department covered generally small ranRQ and trading interest was mainly confined in the earJy dealings to Germany, Brazilian ond Australian Issues, most* of which were a shndc higher. British, 5!£s eased a fraction and French issues ivere neglected. U. S. 110ND QUOTATIONS. NEW YORK, Dec, 28. (jp.--United states Government bonds closed: Liberty 3%s 100.15.

CHICAGO, Dec. 2S.-- Wheat--Aggressive buying was lacking In wheat today yet there was no desire to sell (he absence of any particular news. The result was EL narrow market. With very lit- net ctmnEe in prices. Tho market clM not pay much attention in strength In stocks, although the Improvement there sed some buying of wheat in the last hair hour. Some- profit taking prevented the raVy being maintained. Modification of the cold wave over ther southwest had aome effect early nnd at the same time there wns not the buying ntlrJbuted to rolH.s which has been Tvltnessed lh« pivat two sessions, j^cw York noted a pickup In the floor business in ;he eaat. Leading companies, a dispatch says, mve he«n well stacked and were unwilling o purchase ahead. While the processing lax ha/i tended to diminish consumption In the east, ns It has perhaps elsewhere, thia dispatch, expressed the belief that consumers were becoming accustomed to tho price m a r k u p and an Improved demand Is ex* peeled to follow. Few crop comments were receive/! in the course of the tiny, although ho Kansas weekly report said rain was needed In parts of that state. Winnipeg was without special strength owiriR to lack of export business or any encouragement from U. g. markets. Com--Corn displayed re'atlvely more itrengtrt than wheat nlthough prices aver- tKed fractionally lower. Continued Hght receipts, small offerings to arrive nad further ·cported sealing of corn Tvere bullish factors :hnt found little reflection In prices.
