FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MAY 2 1936 HOGS AND CATTLE SHOW BIG LOSS SATURDAY MARTS NOMINAL AFFAIRS Prices About Steady With : Only Few Sales Made of Swine. ! CHICAGO, (#J--Hog snd cattle values were forced sharply lower this week when receipts bulged to the best volume of the year while lambs advaacfi steeply and then reacted as the supply of wooled offerings dwindled. The markets Saturday were nominally steady, only a few hog sales being made. In the case of steers, values slumped to the. lowest point since Jate in 1934, while hog prices were off to the lowest level in more than a month. Receipts of both hogs and cattle were sharply above last week and a year ago but the sheep run was only about 38,000 compared with 62,000 last year. On a nominal basis Saturday's hog market was about steady although only 200 fresh hogs of the 4,500 consignment were offered for the open trade. During the week hogs xveighing- below 250 pounds 3ost 25 to 50 cents and heavier kinds and sows were 35 to 60 cents off, the general market declining to a level about 40 cents below a month ago but still about $1 above a year ago. Pork prices were weak, declining in some cases a cent a pound wholesale yesterday. Medium weight and weighty steers, the latter comprising the bulk of the crop, lost 25 to 40 cents during the week although some light kinds and practically all yearlings ruled fully steady. The average cost of steers and yearlings for the week was around $8.25, lowest since late in 1934 when supplies were heavy because of the "liquidation" of stock during the drought. The extreme top was $10. A year ago a 5 year steer peak of $16.25 was established. Fat Iambs were up around $1 early in the week to a 512-85 top for wooled kinds, highest in six years, but reacted closing with the general market around 25 cents higher than a week ago.-The closing top on wooled offerings was $12.10 and on those without fleece it was $9.90 Compared with a 7-year peak of 11 at mid-week.

NEW YORK, (JPI -- The stock market lacked support Saturday and a lower drift was in evidence after an irregular start. Losses at one time ranged from 1 to 3 points or so, with American Telephone leadin; the downward side. Iii the final half hour prices stiffened and the close was only moderately heavy. Dullness ruled throughout, with transfers approximating 400,000 shares for the short session. It was one of the smallest trading volumes since November, 1934. The ticker tape was frequently motionless. Several of the mining issues, including Dome, U. S. Smelting, McIntyre and Alaska Juneau, were in demand, and scattered specialties held their own. The major telephone stock was down more than 2 points at one time to around its low of the year. It came back, along with the others, in the final lap, and virtually cancelled its decline. Among backward shares were U. S. Steel, Bethlehem, Chrysler. General . Motors, Consolidated Edison, Westinghouse, Allied Chemical, Case, Anaconda. Standard Oil of New Jersey, Douglas Aircraft, New York Central, Santa Fe and Pennsylvania. Despite the arrangement of further gold shipments from Paris, the French franc was fairly steady in terms of the dollar. Bonds were irregular, with U. S. governments easier. Wheat futures were a bit heavy. Traders, generally, were disinclined to get too far out on a limb in view of the cloudy European situation, the French runoff elections tomorrow, and the likelihood that the supreme court on Monday may hand down the long awaited Guffey coal act decision before taking its summer recess. Curb Market NEW YORK, i.Ti--Curb issues shifted Irregularly Saturday w f i h f u r i h e r rallying tendencies evident in scattered leaders and specialties. Fractional improvement featured stocks like American Cyanamid B, International Petroleum, and Lake Shore Mines. Pan American Airways was traded at about a point advance in the second hour. Aluminum company or America, a heavy loser on the week, dropped around a point. Electric Bond arid Share, United Gap and Niagara. Hudson Power wore easy. Royal Typewriter fl.nrf North American Match . ; ost sgme ground under small dealing.". Bond Market NEW YORK, f.Vl--Excepting U- S. governments, which continue to droop, the bond market -showed a mixed trend Saturday. Treasury loans registered further losses ranging trom 2-32nds to 7-32nds of a point during early trading. The 3s ot 1951, showed resistance and managed to hold a small sain. Treasury 3',is or 1943 sustained the widest loss. The guaranteed obligations were down X-32nd to 5-32nds. Corporate issues making small gains Included Postal Telegraph 5s, New York Centra] 5s, Missouri Pacific 5s. "F," and Canadian Pacific Debentures. Sellers accepted fractionally lower prices for Allcgbany corporation 5s, American Rolling Mill 4',is. Santa Fe 4s, Baltimore and Ohio 4Vjs- Illinois Central i'-js, and Northern Pacific 4s. The principal movements in the foreign sector included a recovery oE several points in Polish government 7s. losses of fractions to around a point in German obligations find gains of like extent in svrae or the Italian municipals.
