Packers Can't Absorb Hogs 180-200 Ibs. 22,000 SWINE ARE HELD OVER Fed Steers, Yearlings Active at 15 Cents Up Chicago, (ff)--Although packing houses are operating at capacity, they still are unable to absorb the excessive supply of hogs being dumped on the market and an estimated 22,000 head were held over Wednesday. Fed steers and yearlings were active at prices 15 cents over Tuesday's sales. The lamb market was low and bidding was under the asking price. ^ m iu= Fresh arrivals of 16,000 hogs 500-550 !bs. Wednesday coupled with the heavy holdover from Tuesday made a total of 41,000 head available for slaughtering, not including the 8,000 head taken by killing houses on direct billings. The supply consisted mostly of heavier weights and sows. The supported weights of 200 to 300 pound butchers sold at $13.75 the top. Other prices were unchanged. Receipts at the 12 major mid-west markets were 132,200 Wednesday compared with 143,247 unloaded a week ago. (WFA)--Salable hogs 16,000; total 24,000, slow, steady on all weights and sows; good and choice 200 to 300 pounds $13.75, the top; 310 to 350 pound heavies $12.50 to 512.90; 170 to 190 pounds $12.40 to $13.25 mostly $12.50 to $13.00; 150 to 170 pounds scarce at $11.50 to $12.50; good and choice 300 to 550 pound sows $11.85 to $12.10; estimated 22,000 unsold.

About 500,000 bushels were bought Tuesday. Price gains which had ranged to more than a cent in rye during the earlier trading were reduced, although most contracts managed to hold onto small advances. Buying during the forenoon was based upon the action of the sen- "ate banking committee in reporting favorably on anti-subsidy legislation and indications the government may vacate its order to divert 200 railroad box cars daily for importing Canadian grains. At the close wheat was H lower to Vt higher, May $1.69%- 1.69y4, oats were %-% higher, May 78V8, rye was %-% higher, May $1.28%-1.29, and barley was up Vi-%, May 51.20%. STOCKS STEADY NEAR FINISH Lose a Little Ground Before Closing Firm New York, (j?)--Stocks lost a little ground Wednesday but improved support steadied the list near the finish. There was a generous sprinkling of fractional declines among steels, rails and rubbers, while in other departments prices w e r e mixed and generally above the day's- lows. Transfers totaled about 700,000 shares. The buying urge was under considerable restraint throughout arid it was evident that the lack of enthusiasm was due partly at least to the discordant notes being sounded in diplomatic circles in the wake of Moscow's treatment of repudiated rumors of British-German peace conversations. Stocks in slightly lower territory in the final hour included U. S. Steel, Chrysler, Goodrich, U. S. Rubber, Montgomery W a r d , Southern Pacific, Southern Hailway, Western Union "A," Johns- Manville and U. S. Gypsum. Army relinquishment of control of the railroads failed to generate any special interest in the carriers, but it Was figured that recent strength in the shares had fully discounted the Washington action. Bonds were irregular. Manly--Ensign and Mrs. Harley Urbatch, who are spending a 10-day furlough in this vicinity, coming from Massachusetts, have gone to Grafton to visit relatives. Ensign Urbatch will go to Seattle, Wash., to report for duty. Ackley--Gerald McGreevy, son of Mr, and Mrs. F. J. McGreevy, is home from a camp in Florida on furlough. Mr. and Mrs. F. J. McCreevy have 4 sons in the service. Goldfield--The Fountain City Masonic lodge held its annual installation of officers Thursday evening with Charles Troyer, the installing officer, and H. L. Stevenson, marshal. Cresco--Born to Mr. and Mrs. Howard Wildman of Cresco, a daughter, Saturday. Fertile -- PEc. Keith Shiemo spent the past week with his wife and daughter and his parents, Mr. and Mrs: Henry Shiemo. He left Monday for his station at Camp Cockscomb in the Imperial Valley in California. Mr. Sheimo is in the cavalry. Kanawha--Announcement has been received of the birth of a daughter Jan. 4 to Mr. and Mrs. John Michelson at a Pittsburgh, Pa., hospital.

G. L. Canaday, weather forecaster, said absence of a protective covering of snow was damaging winter wheat planted last autumn. He cited Chicago's snowfall record --3.6 inches between Dec. 1, 1943, and Jan. 15, 1944, as compared with a normal fall of 13 Inches over the same period--as generally characteristic of the entire area. ^ Also typical of the region, Canaday said, was a precipitation figure for Chicago of 4.25 inches as compared with a normal 1.24 inches from Sept 1, 1943, to Jan. 15, 1944. This moisture shortage, he said, might become a serious threat to next spring's crops unless relieved immediately by heavy rains or snow, he said.
