WHEAT MARKET CLOSES NERVOUS May Delivery Is Relatively Firm; New Crop Months Tend Lower. CHICAGO, (JP)--Relative firmness of the May delivery of wheat contrasted Wednesday with easiness of new crop months, July and September. Greatly enlarged Canadian wheat export business did much to stiffen the price of May contracts, whereas July and September were dominated by chances of showers helpful to crops. Today's export purchases at Winnipeg' were estimated at upward of 2,000,000 bushels.

NEW YORK, (^--Specialties and some of the utilities pushed ahead in Wednesday's stock market. Buying in scattered issues was said to have been based partly on hope* of some traders that the proposed new national tax program would benefit holders of equities in a number of companies. The market pace slowed after a fast morning movement nearing 1 the final hour, gainers of fractions to around 2 points or so, many at new year tops, included Allied Chemical, tr. S. Steel, Bethlehem, Montgomery Ward, du Pont, National Steel, Seaboard Oil, Westinghouse, National Cash Register, Budd Mfg., Container Corp., International Harvester, Consolidated Gas, and Western Union. Late Tone Firm. American Telephone and Chrysler eased under profit taking and the- rails were' about even. The late tone was firm. Transfers approximated 2,800,000 shares. Foreign currencies · were fairly steady in terms of the dollar. Commodities were moderately irregular. Carrier loans and U. S. government securities advanced in the bond division. Although the tax proposals were studied with mixed sentiment in the final district, opinion as to their near future and ultimate effect on stocks were also diverse. Decision With Congress- It was not overlooked that the final decision on the president's revenue plans rests with congress and what this body will do with the recommendations was seen as a matter of pure conjecture. The graduated feature of the pro- josed levies on undistributed earn- ngs, most analysts thought, would )ut greater compulsion on those cor- jorations with the largest undivided profits to pass on income to their shareholders. Curb Market NEW YORK, u*r--Active demand for etaJs and specialties at advances ot 1 to 5 oints featured curb market trading Wecincs- ay. Aluminum company and Bunker Hill and iutlivan each added 5 points to their quoted 'alue. New Jersey Zinc and Pepperell botfc mproved 2, and gains of major tractions to nore tfian a point were siiown by Great At- antic and Pacific, Guly Oil, Pan American .invays, Sberwin Williams, and Singer. -Moat of the utilities were a shade higher ut the turnover was light. Bond Market NEW YORK, u^l--Rail bonds, with gains f fractions to a point or so. were star per- ormers in the bond market Wednesday, U. . government Issues after a quiet start hiJted forward in late moraing. Investment quarters said the higher prices r carried liens, particularly those in the ledium and low price fields, reflected most- y the steady support of surplus funds. Prominent in the advance were Baltimore Ohio 4 Vis, St. Paul 55, North Western "J.'iS and Rock Island General -Is. Steadiness in the government sector ap- arently prompted a renewed demand for orporate low yield issues. Armour Co. , Chile Copper 5s, Consolidated Gas 5'^s, nd. Great Northern 4 \^s, series "E" were fractionally. Northern Pacific 4s ran orward more than a point. In the treasury list the 2"is and the old vi s wore slightly improved. The government-guaranteed group was quiet and steady. As an aftermath of Tuesday's pressure talian 7s were off somewhat under continued neasiness over sanctions moves and ab on or private banking in Italy- Other for- ign loans were inactive and mixed.

Marsh looked up from his work, as young Gordon invaded the library through his favorite entrance. "I'd like to be," was the unami- able retort. "The early morning is the only time I have left for ivork any more. If Wilma doesn't have the place running over with company, then she's making me do the honors for his highness. Thank God, they all sleep late. You've been pretty decent about taking that fellow off my hands," he admitted in a more gracious tone. "If you're looking for lim now, he isn't up." "I wasn't." Gordon helped himself to a chair and looked about the room. "How's your brain child com- 'ng on?" "Not so good," was the moody reply. Marsh reached for his pipe, sucking noisily on it, as he held a match over the charred bowl. "This deal sort of has me upset. Here I was, making out a fine case against Albion . . . now I have to take time out to be decent to a Scotchman. 11 "Cramps your style," Gordon sug- :ested. "That's it. The two don't mix. Phat fellow has me guessing He scowled as his pipe refused to operate, threw it aside with a petu- ant gesture. "I don't mind telling you, Sherm, I can't figure him. One hing .. . he's proved a pleasant disappointment. I supposed he'd be a damn nuisance, you know .. . trying o make himself solid with me. Instead, he acts as though I didn't interest him so much." "Yeah?" "I reckon I should be glad of it. e tried to draw him out, be decent on Wilma's account. Babbas is nobody's fool. He's been about a lot, alks intelligently enough. Some- imes, I almost like him . . . until he screws that cursed glass in his eye." Gordon laughed. "Yes, sir," Marsh continued, "1 ^less I'm no judge of his sort. What Vilma sees in him, I don't pretend to \now. And there's Dorothy . .. com Jletely sold on him. She raves by he hour over his foreign polish, ou'd wonder how she's been content 0 live among us savages so long. What's your reaction?" "0, he'll do," Sherman agreed in- ifferently. "If he suits Wilma, that's the answer. I don't have to marry him." "You're lucky," Selwyn grunted. "That's one subject you're rather sensible about, anyway," he admitted. "Maybe." "You are. Take the word for it of a man-who's been through the mill. What the devil are you looking so glum about?" "That's what I want to talk over," Gordon said, with sudden resolution in his face. He drew his chair closer. 1 wanted to talk about . . . Miss Dahl." "Miss Dahl!" Selwyn's hazel eyes widened in astonishment. Then I 'frowned. "What do you want to tell me"! What has she done ?" "Nothing . . . except to make me lose my head. She's the first woman who ever did . . . Irke that." "Good Lord!" -Marsh reached for bis pipe, rapped out the burned tobacco and began repacking it methodically. "Why tell me?" he demanded irascibly, searching his pockets for matches. "Here you are." Gordon held out a packet. "Because I'm on a spot. To put it mildly, I like Miss Dahl more than any woman I've ever met. It was like that the first time I saw her. Don't you see?" "See what?" The briar was sending out violent puffs. "What I'm up against. It's a wonder she's even decent to me, the wa; I've barged in here at odd times and tried to see her. I've even waylaid her on the road. What else can I do?" "You might try being rational." "Listen. She's the sweetest girl in the world . . . and proud as Lucifer. More than that, she's your housekeeper. She's no business being anybody's housekeeper . . . except mine. But here's the point. I can't call on her, take her places ... all the things I want to do. She wouldn't let me. That's what I'm op against." He left his chair and began pacing back and forth on the nig with restless strides. "Devil of a fix. Isn't it?" "Quite." Selwyn's voice was suddenly calm. "I take back what I said about your being sensible. You're a first-class fool." "Probably. But that doesn't help much." "And just what do you expect me to do?" Marsh's voice suddenly became querulous. "Fire her, so you can court her at leisure? Well, I won't do it," "Hardly. She'd drop out of sight then. I don't want her to do that." "Urnph. Funny thing. Life was pretty decent up to a fortnight ago. First, it's this fellow Babbas. Now, it's you. Miss Dahl is the first calm note that has pervaded Fair Aces since I can remember, it seems to me. I don't know as I blame you so much, Sberm, at that." "I'm glad to hear you say so." "No, sir," Selwyn continued musingly," Miss Dahris a fine young woman. She's pretty and refined . best of all, she's got more common sense than any girl I ever remember meeting. She has no business holding down a job like this. I can't expect to keep her forever . . . too intelligent." 'That just the way I feel about her!" Gordon exclaimed warmly. He paused in his stride and beamed at Marsh. "You can't blame me for falling in love with her!" "No," was the cheerful admission, "And because she has so much good sense. I can't see that there is the least danger of her falling for you. I'm not worried a bit." "So that's it." Gordon stared out through the nearest window. His- mind was filled with the vision of Thora Dahl as he had seen her not long ago. Astride a restive pony. Her golden hair blowing about her face with its shining blue eyes. Filled with the joy of living. And now . . . out in a hot kitchen, more than likely. Figuring menus with an Irish cook. And all for a lot of people who had never had to bother where meals were coming from.

Armour and Company to Call $10,000,000 of Mortgage Bonds CHICAGO. (.T)--R. H. Cabell, president of Armour and company of Illinois, announced Tuesday the directors had voted to call $10,000,000 of the company's 4% per cent first mortgage bonls. The bonds will be called June l, 1936, Cabell said, and are part of an issue of $50,000,000 due June 1, 1939, of which $37,813,000 are outstanding. Decision to call the bonds, Cabell said, was made "as part of our general plan to reduce as rapidly as possible the company's funded obligations w h e n t h e y constitute charges prior to the common stocks." Saving in interest, Cabell said, would be "substantial, and in excess of the premium and other charges resulting from redemption, and would simplify the problem incident to meeting this maturity."

There was buyinp o[ Way and selling July around 10-"i cents difference by the same interests who were active in these operations Tuesday. At one lime May and July sold close to 11 cents apart. No moisture was reported over the southwest. Reports from stations in central Illinois all indicate that the wheat in this area has come through the cold weather in good shape with practically no wheat back on the farms. There was a better tone in the Liverpool and Winnipeg markets, export business of the later beinp reported at 1,500,000 bushels with a noticeable pickup In trade the last few dayj. May wheat continues to reflect a firm undertone although sales of wheat out of this market today were smaller than yesterday. ~^ general opinion among observers is that most of the pressure for the time being will center on July and September futures. CORN--Corn prices steady today and there as some buying of May and selling of July by elevator interests at even prices. Out of cars received about 100 were sold on consignment.
