RYE PRICES LEAD ADVANCE Move to New Highs for Past Month I ·JhieaRo, 7P -- Rye led ail a d - ' vancc in grain futures Thursday, moving to new highs for the past month on reports that additional distilleries would be requested to use rye grits in the manufacture of industrial alcohol. Commission houses with eastern connections were good buyers of the grain, which gained about a cent before meeting resistance. The strength in rye encouraged buying of other grains. An increasingly tight feed grain situation in major terminals supplied underlying support for futures. Only- N 3,000 bushels of corn were purchased on n "to-arrivc basis," the smallest for one day in many weeks. HTjgs reached a new 4- month high here, making it more profitable to hold corn on farms and feed it to hogs. At the close wheat was "i to cent higher. May SI.72. oats were up '/.t to ";.s.
