Prices. CHICAGO, April 2. U~So few ·Were offered for sale today that buyers were threatened with acute Shortage, especially of well finished kinds in all weights. Prices opener! sharply higher as a consequence hut Shippers were the only buyers out for supplies and no market activity appeared in the first few hours of trading. Bids of 58.10 to $8.15 on choice 160 to 200 pound weights were rejected in anticipation of a 25c higher market late. Those bids were 10 to 15c above tho best price obtained yesterday. The reason for the shortage was a run of 16,000 directs to packers in the total supply of 25,000, making the number sent over, that route for slaughter at Chicago this week approximately 48,000, compared to 29,946 for the same four days of last week. | Some hope was felt for the bulk of the steer run today, after an unsatisfactory session on Wednesday, because the supply at the 11 principal markets was so sharply curtailed that only half the number of last Thursday was on sale. Chicago had only 5,000 head, and demand from the outside was believed strong enough to take care of the better grades at fully steady prices, while local interests needed enough to take up the balance without the strenuous efforts that were necessary yesterday. Too many lambs were on sale today to encourage any sellers to ask higher prices than were established in the whirlwind marke Wednesday, but choice lightweight were offered at $9.50 and better in line with the new price range, th highest since last August. Heavy weights, most of which were from Colorado, were offered at $9.00 u; and only 100 Ib. kinds were offeret at lower than $9.00. Chicago had 18,000 head in the run, however, so that there was no great scarcity. ^·Hogs closed fairly active, 'mostly 150 1 25c higher.

Levels. · CHICAGO, April 2. JF--Led by corn, which fell to the lowest prices since 1922, all grains reached new bottom levels today. Commission houses were persistent sellers of corn despite a more active shipping demand here and notwithstanding statements by a leading authority that from a statistical standpoint the corn supply situation at present was much stronger than at the beginning of the season. Selling, however, was incited by apparent likelihood of much unlarged corn acreage for the 1931 crop. Corn closed nervous y t @Vie lower; wheat varying from 540 off tO',%c up; oals 'A® Tic .down, and provisions at 2-7c decline. .Com primary receipts totaled 472.000 bushels against 565,000 a week ago and 723.000 a year ago. Chicago had izs.cara compared with 167 at this time last week and 153 on the corresponding day last year The Argentine corn visible supply today was 10.630,000 bushels, against 3,533,000 a year ago.

Fortnight of Steady Backsliding. NEW YORK, April 2. OP--Th decline in share prices gained mo mentum in today's stock market rounding out a fortnight of almos steady backsliding. Some observers had expected thi closing out of short contracts in ad cance of the Good Friday marke holiday tomorrow to give the list a temporary upturn. A rally did ge under way in the morning, but waa soon lost in a wave o£ selling. Utilities and chemicals were hart hit. International Telephone droppec more than two points. United Cor poration lost about a point, witl" one block of 12,000 appearing. Con solidated Gas, North American Electric Power and Light, Pacific Lighting and American Water Works lost two or more. Alliec Chemical dropped 5 and Air Reduction more than two in new lows. U S. Steel sold off more than a poin but was strongly supported at its 1931 low which is about three points above the minimum of last Decem her. The reduction of IT. S. Industrial Alcohol's annual rate from $6 to .$2 was less drastic than some observers had expected. With alcohol selling at 19 cents a gallon, it s believed to be below production costs. Call money renewed at 1J/4 per cent, but was not plentiful at that level. The automobile chamber of commerce's March production estimate indicates that the industry in the United States and Canada produced about 290,000 units last month, a substantial gain over February. 20 C014 Curb Market 3 511'i Wrfgley 17W Yell Trk 3214- Young S W 65 li 32-y. 85 6(4 6214 72 __.
