EarJy Indications are that freight car ad Ings for the week slumped to under 580,000 cara from 608,443 loaded In the final week of March. Slackening demand for coal with the advent of warmer weather was accentuated by the heavy movement earlier _n anticipation of the hlghej prices and mine wages effective April 1.

Financial markets were fairly cheerful but speculative forces were not inclined to let bullish enthusiasm run away witth discretion. The soft spots in the motors and other categories were attributed partly to fear of more strike difficulties.

(^"PH-The outstanding feature of the .bond market during the early trading today waa a further surge of buying Interest In a limited number of corporate loans, which pushed well above the levels of the previous day and into new high ground for the year. The fact that demand was Wphly selective did not detract from the market's general tone which was steady to firm throughout the corporate list. U, S. governments remained within a very narrow range under light trading. Foreign loans were steady except for some .Cuban issues, which sold off on the news of an officially declared moratorium on principal payments due during the next two years.

Mason City Office in Bagley- Beck Building Telephone No. 7 NEW YORK CURB QUOTATIONS MABKET REVIEW Wheat-- Wheat today reverted to its narrow action of tie past two weeks and held to a narrow range notwithstanding some constructive developments in the news. May ran Into sufficient 'selling at 87 to check upturns during the morning hut later there ·was a reaction to under yesterday's final prices from which very little recovery -was made. As in recent sessions the bulk of the business was in spreading and oackspreaa- Ing between the various deliveries. The weakness In rye was an influence on wheat. The trade had reports of dust storms from a wide area covering parts of Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota. Minnesota, and Iowa but the news had little effect. The Kansas official returns indicating a deficiency In subsoil moisture over practically the entire state as well as the presence of green bugs In the more southern sections failed to cause any comment. Reports from the wheat conference at Rome were taken as indicating that something might develop there, but the schemes proposed thufi far have not- been taken very seriously by the local element on account of the large number of countries that would have to ratify any recommendations and the time involved. Com -- Corn was firm during the morning but eased later with wheat- Country offerings continued small and it was claimed that a large part of the purchases to arrive were made at smaller terminal markets. Bookings were 80,000 bushels and cash sales 65,000 bushels. Bye -- Rye dropped over 2 cents as the result of liquidation based on the official announcement that the countervailing duty would not be assessed on imports of rye from Poland. Expect Irregular market awaiting the outcome of legislation or other devedopments. Butter-- Cash srades unchanged and from all appearances the undertone can be called steadier. Futures met a more friendly class Ergs -- The spot market was easier with storage packed down ii cent. October futures closed ',i cent lower although strong bidding support was shown fractionally below 18% cents. Comment: Believe butter and eggs will mark time for the present.
