GRAIN MARKET IS UNSETTLED Wheat Futures Drop But Later Make Gain CHICAGO, (^--Announcement by the commodity credit corporation that it would make available its 235,000,000 bushel stock of wheat at parity prices unsettlec grain' markets Saturday. Wheat futures, which had been higher in early trading, dropped below the preceding session's close following the CCC announcement. Trading was not heavy, however, and resting orders were encountered on the downside. Prices rose again to about Friday's finish. The CCC order released wheat at prices equivalent to parity at lie point of storage. Traders said the government's selling price is several cents a bushel above the open market price for hard wheats. This fact, it was said, prevented any sharp break in futures.

NEW YORK, «P)_A handful of blue chips .continued to attract investment buying in Saturday's stock market but further profi cashing on the long upward drive stalled many leaders. The list shifted indecisively at the start and spotty tendencies prevailed near the close.-Dealings slackened after the opening anc transfers for the short stretch dwindled to a r o u n d 300001 shares, one of the smallest Saturday turnovers in several weeks Bullishness persisted over developments on allied battle fronts and the pressure of idle funds remained as a bolstering influence Some hesitancy, however, was attributed to the idea that the recovery from the lows of last April has been one of the broadest in a number of years. The Associates Press average of 60 stocks Friday ended at its best level since Oct 6, 1941. In view of this attainment, the opinion was heard here and there that more of a technics, correction would be necessary to put the market in a position to resume the upswing. Rails, as in the preceding session, lacked rising vigor and the failure of this group-to confirm the recent advance in other categories helped to discourage chart followers. PROBE GASOLINE RATION COUPONS Some Dealers Try to Overcome Shortages , . - Iowa oftice began an investigation Friday of ingenious methods reportedly devised by retail gaso- me dealers and consumers to augment their future quota of rationed motor fuel. With the close of the first gas rationing period Thursday which voided No. 3 coupons in "A" racks, some filling station operators reportedly sought to overcome their own shortages by requesting customers to donate tnem the unused No. 3 coupons in their ration books. Also, the OPA said, some motorists sought the co-operation of friendly filling station operators in assuring the individual mo- tonst s full quota. Having used up only a portion of the current "A" coupons, they turned in unused coupons with the understanding that they would be permitted to purchase the c o r r e s p o n d i n g amount of gasoline at a later date Such practices were characterized by the Iowa OPA office as Uiegal and a check was under way to determine their extent OPA inspectors went into action in Des Moines. Since gaso line in the hands of filling stations was inventorized before the rationing regulations went into effect, the inspectors measur storage tanks and see if the operator has either too many or too few coupons to account for the gasoline disposed of. Engineered "deals" involving coupons represent only one meth- «?. °n^ V A° !a «J- ng the re g"'atKns, the OPA office disclesed.

PITTSBURGH, (U.PJ--If negotia- t i o n s materialize, C l a r k D. Shaughnessy, head coach of the University of Maryland, will succeed Football Coach Charles S. Bowser at the University of Pittsburgh, it was revealed Saturday. James J. Hagan, Pitt athletic director, said Bowser had resigned, effective next March 13, and that "some negotiations" had been carried out with . Shaughnessy, but had not been completed. At College Park, Md., Shaughnessy admitted he had been "sounded out" by Pitt athletic officials, but said reports that negotiations would be completed soon were "premature and embarrassing." He did not deny that he planned a trip to Pittsburgh within the next week. Bowser, who succeeded John Bam (Jock) Sutherland as Pitt coach in 1939, has applied for a commission as lieutenant-commander in the navy and expects to be called to active duty shortly. Shaughnessy, a leading exponent of the "T" formation, which he used with great success at Stan- lord university in 1940-41, would bring 28 years of coaching experience to Pitt, whose football record in recent years has been unimpressive.

Cardinals and Browns Still Looking at Sites Near Home for Training ST. LOUIS, (IP)-- The St. Louis Browns and Cardinals, only two major league clubs with permission to train west of the Mississippi river, may not use that privilege. All other clubs, to conserve travel, have agreed to remove suet and soreness east of the Mississippi and north of the Ohio and the Potomac rivers. The state of Missouri was included as fair game Cor the Browns and Cards in their hunt for a training site. But President Sam Breadon of the World Champion Cardinals has a weather eye, literally, on Cairo, 111. It's as close to baseball o.ut-of- Jounds as one can get. That's where the Ohio and Mississippi meet. ·The Browns apparently prefer Columbia, home of the University of Missouri. There's a field house there, large enough for indoor drills. But the army is sendin» more and more service men to Columbia, and if the time comes when there isn't room enough for ne army and Browns, it won't be the army that's squeezed out, Tutors Drop Loop Tilt to South Dakota Five VERMILLION, S.

Administrator Claude R. Wickard said his order for drastic revision of milk marketing practices was but the "first step" in a program to conserve manpower, fuel, rubber and delivery equipment. Other economies, he said, will be developed on a local or regional basis to fit particular conditions anci reduce as much as possible the spread between producer and consumer prices for milk. * * * The order had little direct effect on milt producers, although Wickard said it would allow higher prices o farmers while minimizing increases to consumers. Other economies to follow are expected to extend right to the milk barn. * * * Three of the five points of the order directly affect consumers. It eliminates milk packages and bottles of less than one quart- prevents the milkman from leaving an "extra quart" except upon an advance order, and requires a minimum deposit of one cent on each bottle. Restaurants and hotels may continue to purchase milk in .pints and half pints for consumption on their premises. They must confine their purchases to not more than two handlers unless each delivers more than 300 quarts. They cannot return unsold milk. * * * Food officials said they were working on "all practicable" distribution economies. Steps aready have been taken to save on distribution of bread and other bakery products and similar economies are expected to be made for meat. * * * National distributors of some other standard foods may be required to eliminate duplication of delivery routes. Transportation and food distribution officials have discussed reduction of nonessential out-of-season fresh fruits and vegetables shipped from long distances to city markets. The m i l k order left to be worked out locally other distribution economies, such as every- other-day delivery to homes and consolidation of duplicating deliv- *-_ Tf those are not made fense transportation.
