SOME WEIGHTS SHOW 251 CAIN Choice Heavy Steers Reach Top of $17.00 Chicago, (If) -- A considerable improvement in the hog situation at Chicago with holdovers sharply reduced from recent weeks, was seen as the result of the marketing permit system currently in effect. Good and choice heavy steers sold steady^ reaching the top,of J17.00. All classes of sheep were active. The war food administration announced Tuesday the temporary extension of the government's price support program to include chice Butcher hogs weighing up to 350 pounds. The weights originally supported by this . program at $13.75 were 200 to 270 pounds, and were recently extended to include 300 pounders. The new extension effective Jan. 27, was made to protect farmers Who have been unable to market their hogs because of stockyard congestion and to encourage them to hold their hogs until ' the present crowded conditions,of stockyards is cleared/Good and choice 200 to 300 pound weights held within the support level of $13.75 locally, while other weights showed gains of 25 cents and sows were up 10 cents. Of the 21,000 fresh- salable arrivals it was estimated that around 17,000 farmers owned hogs would remain unsold.

WHEAT, RYE FUTURES GAIN Good Commission House Demand Is Reported Chicago, (£")·--Wheat and rye fu-. tures d i s p la y e d considerable strength Tuesday, rye leading-the upturns with gains of more than a cent'at times on good commission house demand.

The course was moderately uneven ^at .the start and inedefinite trends prevailed near the close. Dealings slowed after a fairly active get-away and transfers for the full stretch -were around 700,000 shares. Earnings, dividends and individual developments bolstered favorites. Wall street continued to devote the major p*art of its attention to the war loan drive and corporate securities' were permitted to go ; their own way without the benefit of much public or professional stimulation. Potential buyers generally were inclined to step carefully, pending outcome of the congressional tax wrangle and possible foreign eventualities. Homestake mining hit' a new 1B43-44 top. American Foreign Power Preferreds pushed up 1 to around 5 points. Ahead were International Telephone, P a t i n l o mines,' Eastman Kodak,' Budd Mfg., -International Harvester, Goodyear, Santa Fe and Woolworth. Most Steels, Motors, Aircrafts, Coppers, Oils and Utilities were about unchanged to a shade lower. Bonds were relatively steady.
