If i* i ~~% I -Tit I A ^ I' i i i H LIVESTOCK PRICE TREND LOWER CATTLE STEADY TO SHADE DOWN Hogs Open Unchanged and Jhen Take Drop of 5 to 10 Cents. CHICAGO, (/P) -- A downward leaction o£ livestock .prices, reflecting to some extent, traders said, consumer resistance to recent advances in livestock and meat, took place at the stockyards Friday. ' . . . . Hogs opened unchanged but then lost 5 to 10 cents. Cattle were unchanged to a shade lower, despite the, limited supply of beef steers in an unusually small Friday run. Fat lambs and sheep declined fully 25 cents. Reports to the trade indicated demand for fresh cuts of beef arid lamb has dropped off this week. -, High prices, approach of Holy |Week and warmer weather are contributing factors in this reac- iion, it was said. This has caused buyers to shade costs in- the live trade as much as possible. Wholesale lamb carcasses have been forced up 2 to 2V cents a pound in the past week while mutton is quoted % to 1 cent higher Pork loins are V- to IVi cent higher. Carcasses of yearling steer and heifers are about the same as a week ago but heavy bee steers are up Vi cent a pound Veal is Va cent lower. Thursday's top in the swine market was the highest in .eigh weeks, being $10.40. This was paid again early today but in late trad ing the practical peak was a dime lower. .The bulk of ordinary cattle soli at S8.50 to $11.25. There was noth ing available worth prices near th $15.50 nominal peak of the cattl market. After yesterday's increased lam supply, marketings fell off. Seller were demanding yesterday's $12.G peak for choice handyweights but bids were fully 25 cents lower. Hog Markets MIDWEST HOGS Hog prices at midwest markets Fri- WATEHLOO--Hogs unchanged.

C H I C A G O , (IP) -- Extreme breaks of 3% cents a bushel took place in Chicago wheat values Friday. Numerous stop-loss selling orders were forced into execution by the downward sweep of the wheat market. Kansas and Nebraska reports of moisture, indicative of a large domestic winter wheat crop were largely responsible, together with dearth of export demand for Canadian wheat, as well as denials that Argentina is planning to restrict wheat exports, At the close, wheat was 2 ] /i-' 3Vs cents under Thursday's finish, May $1.36.%-%, July $1.21%-%, corn unchanged to 1 cent lower, May 51.09%-%, July $1.05V4-%, oats Va-l-Vi off, and provisions 10 to 15 cents down.

NEW YORK, (if)--Stock buyers exhibited a little more courage n Friday's market and many of Thursday's depressed leaders :ame back for recoveries of frac 7 Lions to a point or more. After an indifferent start, rails enjoyed a speedy but brief rally in which the ticker tape fell be- nind 2 minutes. Steels later joined the move while utilities, rubbers and specialties were on the upside. Carriers responded to a more than seasonal increase in last week's car loadings as well as to a decision by the interstate commerce commission maintaining emergency rates on 19 commodities. Many oC Thursday's short sellers in this group were reported to have recovered. General Motors and Chrysler held to a narrow groove as a Michigan court ordered the arrest of 6,000 strikers holding plants of the latter company. . The pace slowed appreciably near the final hour and extreme advances were reduced in many instances. Transfers were around 1,850,000 shares. Public Utility and Industrial Stocks Quoted, by. A. M.

Youngs S 4: T 01(4 NEW YORK, CD--U. S. government issues turned downward again Friday alter a moderate extension of Thursday's recovery during the ftrst hour. Corporate liens were uneven, with rails generally higher. Selling: in the federals became active after the majority of treasuries had risen 2-32nds to J-32nds on top of Thursday's substantial recovery. By midday the sen- oral range was 9-32nds a point lower to 2-32ritis higher. One or two o£ the treasuries held gains of around V point. Low yield corporate bonds showed few- crj symptoms oE nervousness, and speculative ratings had better support oti the more stable action of the share list following Thursday's heavy decline. Advances 'ranged from fractions to around l!i points in a representative list of loans, including those of Remington Rand. Shell Union Oil, M-K-T, Bethlehem Steel, American Telephone, Great Northern, Illinois Central Steel, American Telephone, Great Northern, Illinois Central, Frisco, Western Union. Northern Pacific, Nickel Plate and Pacific Gas Electric. Most active foreign issues were disposed to work htRher under the lead, of Italian, Polish and German obligations.
