I: Some Scattered Gains Mad '' but Most Shares Hold I Only Steady. 0 o NEW YORK, April 17. O)-J^ Tranquility reigned in the stoc , r market today following a sharp di s in yesterday's late trading. Som 0 scattered improvement occurre o but the majority of shares wer ° only steady. Armour of Elinoi ,; preferred and American Telephon i got up around 2 points each. U. S j, Steel, Case, National Distillers an : American Smelting were a bit high 8 er. Transfers approximated 850 0 000, shares. Traders kept one eye on Wash ; ington and the other on the grai pit. There was little stimulus from ! either direction and the volume o : equity transactions was the lowes in several sessions. Wheat and corn dropped anothe " cent or so a bushel and the othe n cereals were inclined to slip. A - the same time most of the sellmj I here was attributed to overnigh a margin calls and offerings dwin died after early adjustments. ! Bonds were mildly irregular, al i though some secondary issues wer still in supply. International dolla t rates recorded no importan ) changes. Curb Market 0 s NEW YORK, April 17, OT 1 )-- The cur 5 market resumed its quiet routine today fol 3 owing yesterday afternoon' shakcoul. Prlc D changes were mostly or the fractional van 3 cty and few issues developed any volume. Some attention was paid to scattered ol Issues, notably Creole Petroleum which ad vanced almost a point In a fair turnover - Standard Oil ot Indiana was firm and Hum b!e also improved. J Pittsburgh Plate Glass resumed Its rise 3 although It did not duplicate yesterday- high which represented a new peak for th year. Alcohol shares were narrow movers The utility list had a firm undertone, bu v.-aa not particularly active. Lake Snore Mines, Newmont Mining American Cyanarold "B," Swift and com pany, Pioneer Gold, Wright Hargreavca and Cord corporation were steady. Great Atlan t c and Pacific lost 2 points on an earlj transfer. Bond Market NEW YORK, April 17, (.*!-- Bonds showed a mixed trend during the early trad ng today, with turnover somewhat reduced The steady tone of the stock market fol owing yesterday's weakness was a helpfu nfluence in the secondary group, and prime issues were generally firm. Some of the low priced rails continue* reactionary, although losses were generally light. Allegheny corporation 5s of 1950, Bal tlmore and Ohio 4*s, Milwaukee 5s, Erie 5s, Nickel Plate 4Vis and Southern Railway s yielded fractions to around a point. Industrials and utilities heM within smal ranges with minor gains and losses abou even. Slight improvement was registered In phone 's, Bethlehem Steel 5s, National Dairy 5Hs, Phillips Petroleum 5 Vis, North American 5s and Detroit Edison 4^s. U. S. governments were a shade lower In the treasury division and slightly higher in some of the LIbertys. IT. S. BOND QUOTATION'S NEW YORK.

Lamson Brothers Market Letter CHICAGO, April 17.-Wheat--Wheat recovered partially from a selling wave during the morning which forced September wheat and rye and ail deliveries of corn, cats and barley to new lows for the season and the tone at the close was somewhat improved. Strength in stocks, an upturn in cotton and late advices that hearings on the commodity regulation bl" had been concluded, with chances of th* measure passing at this session as doubtful, played their part in the slightly better sentiment. All late gains were not held as there continued to be dribbling liquidation on the bulges and the close was lower than yesterday. Heavy overnight margin calls was a factor in the early break. Price changes In al] grains were extremely rapid most of the session, quotations being well out of line on the blackboard with actual transactions n the pit. This was especially the case early n the mornlnc. The market was a broad affair with little attention paid to Individual operations. The buying and selling appeared to be federal and not concentrated. Routine news again attracted very little attention and was scarcely mentioned In the gossip of the day. Coarse Grains -- Cora and oats gave a better performance than wheat and were unchanged to a fraction better at the close, the weakness In the cash markets being without effect. There were persistent claims of export business having been put through in corn and Kansas City reported 50.000 bushels corn had been worked from that market to the gulf presumably for export. Wheat has had a good cleaning out and as legislative news appears to have a more favorable tone, a rally may develop after seme early Irregularity. Butter-- Most grades arc fractionally lower today and In general we would say that the market remains quite unsettled at the decline. EfrfiR-- EarJy In the day the cash egg market was generally steady with quotations un- storage packed grades. Comment -- Temporarily, It would seem that butter and egg markets will be affected by the trends for stocks and grains.
