14 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 23 1931 HOG VALUES SLUMP UNDER LARGE RUN WEAKNESS SEEN IN BO VINE MART Sellers Make Brave Attempt . to Hold Sheep Prices . Steady. "CHICAGO, March 23. OF) -- Hog values slumped another 10-15c as the largest rim In month turned up hi the local yards.

However, were 25,000. Short of the number marketed a week ago. .Initial bids wem sharply lower and. the 58 hog was almost SUD- mergred, $7.85 and 57.90 being- com- jnonly offered for strictly choice 170 to 200 pound'animals, with an ?8 geak for a-select load. , -Weakness pervaded the cattle jtfarhet. Liberal receipts here with no corresponding' improvement in fresh meat demand left packers no alternative other than to discourage the marketing of cattle by holding down prices. Only one car out of the wHole TOO..of 21,000 was consigned direct.. Calf- receipts, estimated at 2^500, furnished an ample supply for trade needs. With receipts of sheep and lambs in line with a week ago and a year ago, sellers made a brave attempt to hold .prices. stationary.

CHICAGO, March 23. UP)-rWith raders actively operating on as- umptlons that to get an adequate export outlet for the 1931 crop, Jnited States wheat prices would have to undercut .the Winnipeg market,- wheat plunged down here oday more than 11 cents a bushel m some cases. .''Selling in Chicago was- largely against purchases at Winnipeg. The downturns of Chicago quotations went below any witnessed since 1895, when July wheat sold at 50%, the bottommost evel ever touched since trading in monthly future delivery contracts was first adopted. -May wheat old finished' at 81%c;-com closed 1@1%C lower; oats %3i4c down, and provisions unchanged to 5c decline. Formal announcement by the United States arm board that price stabilization opera- lona In this country would not be extended o the 1031 domestic crop was. the Immed- ate occasion of severe breaks which took Place In prices today. Little rallying power was ahown, and the market closed unsteady at almost the lowest figures touched, rang- ng I rom a shade to 2% cents down except or June delivery which finished 9 cents oft. In later dealings, June delivery of wheat, n which, however, business -was slight, coU apsed to 65 cents, a drop of 11 cents under Saturday's close. Corn for May delivery reached 62 ii cents, outgoing the 1831 low ecord, heretofore 62Mc. Primary receipts oday, both, of wheat and corn, were huge, espectlvely 1,337,000 and 1,264,000 bushels, much exceeding the totals either a week or a year ago. CHICAGO CASH GRAIN.

"The report of a. slight Increase In employment in manufacturing Industries during February accompanied by a 7.5 per cent rise In payroll disbursements over January is gratifying, even tho the Increase represents largely seasonal Influences. The foreign trade figures for February , reveal the lowest totals for any month of the past 11 years, Tho Business Week Index of general business activity has risen somewhat above the low levels of February and stands at 81.1 per cent at normal compared "with 79.7 per cent the preceding week; A year ago, activity was still at a high level, 95.2 per cent of normal according to our Index, tho the spring rise was not sustained, but waned rapidly alter mtd- summer." STEEL TNDUSTHY IN SJLOW EXPANSION The steel .industry has shown a continuous expansion since the first of tho year when Ingot production was at little more than a third of the Industry's capacity, For the week, ending March 10, a gain of 2 J , per cent occurred over the previous week, bringing activity to over 56 per cent of capacity, according to Dow, Jones. Our adjusted Index rose to 67" per cent ot nor- Tnal compared with 66 per cent the preceding week. This spurt was 'due chiefly to the group of independent producers catering to the needs of the automotive Industry. uusrxEss snows PROGRESS SAYS I-TNANCIAL WORLD Slow but sure progress toward business recovery *s seen by The Fl n awl al World leading Investment weekly. In Its Issue" 01 March 25. * 'Comparison of current business activity with the levels which prevailed a year ago,' saya The Financial World, "la quite .apt to be discouraging, but the Important factor In the situation ia the direction In which we are moving. Comparing the earnings for the first half of this year with those o£ the lost half of 1930 should give a much better picture, and more accurately portray the trend of trade and industry. No sudden return to prosperity levels Is in prospect, but the present slow progress should continue and It is -probble that the comtng summer months will not be as dull as might ordinarily be expected. Most of tho various trade Indices continue to give signs of. progress. The expected furtherance of gains In residential construction materialized In the first half of March, with the dally average figures for the period ahou-Jng small Increases over February as well as March of last year. AVIATION NOW DEFINITELY OUT OP DEPRESSION PERIOD The aviation Industry is out of its depression period and growing rapidly, according to a statement, just issued by James C. Wlllaon, well known aviation authority of New York city. 'In fact,'' says Mr. Wlllson, ''the real turn In operations and growth began In the spring of 1B30." He gives the following facts from 1930 as compared to 1929 to support ils statement of aviation's growth against the ebb tide of general business. The leading schedule passenger'lines carried 180 per cent more passengers--about *00,000 in all. Safety factors Increased enormously. In 10,000,000 schedule passenger miles flown In the last half of 1930, there were but two jaasenger fatalities--compared to nine In Jie last half of 1929 on a much, smaller mileage. One ot the largest non-schedule flying services carried 155 per cent more passengers. Air mall poundings Increased 12.7 per cent.

The downward tendency which eveloped late last week was carried over into the early trading and o sooner did its influence wear off ban a drop in Chicago wheat to he lowest levels in 35 years irompted further selling. The list tiffened again by early afternoon, xowever,'and prices were inclined to ecover. Trading was quiet from the tart Early losses of 2 or 3 points in ;uch issues as Allied Chemical, American Can, and Case were largely cancelled. Auburn Auto dropped 5, hen rebounded 10 from the bottom reach new high ground above 220. U. S. Industrial Alcohol dropped 5 to a new low. Radio Corporation was well supported, and Freeport Texas was pushed up 2 to a new 1931 top. Losses of a oint or two were marked by XT. S. 3teel, American Telephone, United Corporation, North American, General Electric, Anaconda, Interna- ional Harvester, New York Cen- ral, Bprden, Union Carbide, Nash and Studebaker. The break in wheat on announcement that the Farm Board would not support the market for the new wheat crop was naturally a de- ressing influence of financial markets, but it lacked sufficient, element of surprise to prompt any asty selling of securities. Several important dividend meet- ngs 1 are scheduled for this week. Vednesday dividend meetings are cheduled for Baltimore and Ohio, Vestinghouse Electric and North- rn Pacific. On Thursday directors f Anaconda, National Nash Regis- er, Lackawanna and Liquid Car- onic, are expected to decide what hould be done about disbursements o stockholders.

WHEAT--Our market's reaction to tl\i2 farm, board announcement that it would not permit stabilization operations in the 1931 crop, was a movement to the lowest levels of the crop year. There was heavy liquidation by longs, much of it on stop loss orders, and free short selling by commission houses and the local element. The new crop months went to figures not witnessed in Chicago since 1898. At that time July wheat was down to 50 y 2 , the owest at which any future ever sold since speculative trading, as now conducted, was- inaugurated. There was considerable buying of future: at Winnipeg against sales here, by spreaders, operating' on the belie: that American prices -would have to decline to a point where export busi ness would be possible in order to get rid of our surplus. July whea in Liverpool today closed at 62%, as against 59% In Chicago, and ou September at 60% as against 65 J ,4 for Liverpool October. The matte of ocean transport must, of course be taken into consideration. Winnl peg's prices for July were about 1 cent under ours, while their Octobe and our September were nearly even. We do not interpret the farir board announcement as a. total abandonement of the stabilization idea, nor has the board given an. indication as to whether or not i would again undertake the schem at a later date. However, the situ at) on is apparently cleared as to th winter crop at least, as,the matte stands. We are inclined to expec some recovery Tuesday, as the mar ket may have been oversold. CORN -- Corn disregarded al news individual to its affair, an took its cut from the weakness i: wheat. The decline was rathe sharp, altho buying by shorts an holders of bids checked it and bro about a moderate - rally near th close. Trading in corn as well as wheat -was broad and active. Ship ping- sales ran up to 72,000 bushel while bookings to arrive were 45.00 bushels including 33,000 bushel from terminals. We expect corn t follow wheat for the present.
