Market Notes By TICKER TAPE Friday waa a. llstlees day In the atocji market. At no time were pivotals out of ti fractional range in comparison with the preceding day's close. Turnover waa extremely limited, and leaders again were ID the background of Interest. Because the market In opening transactions did not observe the downward trend actively being pursued when the Thursday session was brought to a. close, sentiment In board rooms was encouraged. Additional satisfaction was drawn from the fact that trading was limited and movements, at worst, »rregular. Some firmness was displayed in the final hour, particularly by the backward utility and rail divisions. With argument over the stock exchange bill coming to a head and disposition of the measure expected to be an event of ex* treme importance during the next several days, professionals were saJd to be cautioning careful market participation. This attitude was believed to be reflected In the small trade -witnessed Friday and until the probab'e r*«ult of con^reaelonal action la more clearly defined fluctuations are expected to be narrow and participation restrained. Many quarters are partial to the oil shares although the failure of this group to respond to constructive efforts tn the post is a discouraging influence. After several days' easiness, the group displayed a firm tone and a few Issues were able to record gains of more ambitious proportions than tnc general run of the list. PREFERRED STOCKS IN DEMAND Features were again provided by Individual shares particular'y those that have been benefittlng materially from the enlarged profit opportunities. Evns Products was one of the most active on the board and established another new peak at 27U. closing at 23=4, for a fractional gain. American Bank Note came to life with a gain cf nearly a point and Plllsbury Flour Mills responded bs'atedly to the dividend voted Thursday running up 1% to a new 1934 top Fox Film was an active leader, but was under mild pressure ^th reports being heard of absorption of a large block of the stock by London Interests. Chrysler and General Motors were the prime favorites among the plvotals, others be4ns neglected Preferred stocks were In good demand, the Cushman Issued registering wide advances on negligible demand. The only movements of Importance in the metal shares were advances of 1 ana 1% by Amerlcn Metal and Mclntyrg Porcupine. Earl Kieltv Funeral Be in Rockwell ROCKWELL, April 28.--Mr. and Mrs. M. Kielty received word of the death of their son, Earl Kielty. aged about 36, who died at Stony Brook Retreat, Cal., of tubercular trouble Wednesday evening. He was in California since last November. An older brother, Harold of Taft, Cal., is expected to arrive here with the body on Sunday. RECEIPTS LESS THAN EXPECTED Few Scattered Bids, Sales Reported Around $3.70 Downward. CHICAGO, April 28! CD--Tne hog market was slow today, with a general lack of demand although a few scattered bids and sales were reported around $3.70 downward. Prices remained nominally steady and the top held unchanged from yesterday at $3.95. Receipts 9,000 were fewer than had been expected and well under offerings of both a week ago and a year ago.

Compared with Friday a week ago medium weight and weighty fed steers ruled 50 cents higher. The general market was active on all grades of weighty animals during the week with the top reaching $8.60, a new high since November, 1932. A run of 4,000 sheep today served to keep the market steady. Compared with prices Friday last week clipped lambs were 40 to 50 cents higher and most other grades of muttons showed price improvements. A weak top of $10.25 for wooled lambs was the highest since June 1931, and the highest April top in four years. Mason City Livestock MASON CITY, April 28.-HOGS About steady.

(«--The stock market dozed peacefully during the greater part of today's brief session and prices generally were a little heavy at the close. It was one of the dullest sessions of the year. Rallies In wheat and other commodities failed as stimulants. Transfers approximated 600,000 shares. Wheat came back more than a cent a bushel upon further reports of damaging crop weather. Other cereals also worked higher, but with ess vigor. Silver futsres continued to Improve and the bar metal was pushed up % of a cent an ounce to 13% cents. Cotton was about even. Sterling got up a cent or so in terms of the dollar, but the gold exchanges were narrow. Bonds were quiet and somewhat mixed. The indifference of traders in equities was exemplified by the fact that American Telephone did not open for nearly one hour and a half. Many other issues also failed to appear on the ticker tape until late. Metals issues were fairly resistant and most of the alcohols registered some improvement. The motors sagged, with Chrysler, Hudson, General, Nash and Auburn off fractionally to more than a point. U. S. and Bethlehem Steels sagged, as did Santa Fe, N. Y. Central and Union Pacific. Celanese, Industrial Rayon, Liquid Carbonic and American Banknote lost about 1 to 2. Du Pont, Liggett Myers B and Goodyear yielded a point or more each. Am- srican Telephone eased, but Consolidated Gas and other power and light stocks were fairly steady. Curb Market NEW YORK, April 28, (.TV-Trading on the curb was reduced to minimum proportions today and price changes were most unimportant. Thin markets were noted in several industrial shares, some of which rose undei light buying orders. Among them were Parker Rust Proof. Sherwln Williams and Pittsburgh Plate class, each of which gained more than a point on small transfers. Mining Blocks tended higher, but their vo'ume waa Inconsequential, Newmont and New Jersey Zinc gained fractionally. Mountain States Telephone advanced point and a half on an early 10 share transaction. Issues of power and light holding companies stagnated and the same waa largely true of specialties and oils. Pan American Airways, Cord corporatloi American Cyanamld "B," Fennroad, Standard Oil of Indiana, Swift and company. HI ram Walker, Electric Bond and Share Amerlcsjt Qae, Lake Shore Mine* and Flo neer Gold were virtual'y unchanged. Bond Market NEW YORK, April 28. lAl--ln a listlesi market bond prlcen shifted in a narrow and irregulai range today. Domestic corporate issues were decidedly Inactive except in spots, U. S. governments held to about the same small range in which they movet yesterday. It the market had any outstanding feature it was an active buying movement li German 5%s following more definite indi cations in E'er!In advices that service on this loan and the Dawes p'an 7s would be continued, irrespective of any suspension payments on other German external obligations. The Dawes 7s pushed up a major fraction.

April 28,-Wheat--The distinctly adverse character of the nev/s on weather and crops coining from the area east o£ the Rockies and. northward Into parts of Canadian northwest, started a buying movement in wheat today that carried prices up sharply from yesterday and against an easing in stocks and cotton. There waa a E re at deal o( nrofit teking ana selling: Induced by the forecast for unsettled conditions in lh« Dakotas and Minnesota tomorrow and on the weekly forecast for some precipitation the first part of nest week. However, the mur- ket absorbed It well and cloged within a fraction of its high for the session. Uniform strength was noted in outside markets, There Is a possibility of a change in weatlicr conditions over the week-end. Temperatures are rising in most sections and there may be sporadic thunderstorms. However a view of the weather map today shows no cloudy area from the Pacific coast to Pennsylvania and heavy rains or an extended period of precipitation which all sections urgently need, does not appear to be In Immediate prospect. Private advlcea today from K«d. river valley in North Dakota indicate that In some sections 40 to 50 per cent of the spring wheat seed has been blown out of the ground or covered with soil to.such a depth · that reseedlng would be necessary. Reports from the southwest today indicated irreparable damage in Rome sectlont of the winter wheat belt. Cnrn---Liquidation by holders of May corn waa again underway but It was not In lar^e volume and futures closed higher than yesterday, largely in sympathy with wheat. Failure of relief to dry sections over the week-end will likely ntrengthen wheat further unless liquidation of May corn should prove an orfsettlng influence. Whittemore Resident Buried at Elgin, 111.
