Grain CHICAGO (AP) — Soybeans futures advanced 2% cents a bushel on the Chicago Board of Trade today and helped influence higher prices for soybean meal and soybean oil. Wheat advanced about % cent a bushel while corn, oats and rye scored lesser rises. A fair amount of export buying plus a developing tightness of soybeans in the country contributed to the higher prices, especially in the early contracts. Estimated carlot receipts were wheat 13, corn 84, oats 2, rye 1, barley 12 and soybeans 66.

CHICAGO (AP) - Pablo Picasso would like to see a snow job on the monumental sculpture he gave to Chicago.

But William Hartmann, the architect who persuaded the ar tist to give Chicago the sculp and went to inform the police.

(AP)—Lebanon told the United Nations today that a withdrawal of Israeli forces from occupied positions could bring peaceful conditions "guaranteeing the renunciation of the use of force and the security of all states in the region." But it ruled out recognition of Israel or negotiations with it. "The conditions are favorable for a peaceful settlement of the present crisis," Lebanese Foreign Minister. Georges Hakim said in a policy speech to the 122-nation General Assembly. "If peace is not achieved now, war will break out sooner or later. Time is not on the side of peace in the Middle East. The United Nations, either in the Security Council or in the General Assembly, must act now." Last Monday Hakim told an Associated Press reporter that the Arab states had decided at their recent conference at Khartoum to "choose the peaceful solution rather than one leading to war sooner or later." "This means," Hakim said, "that if Israeli troops were withdrawn to positions occupied June 5, the Arab States would renounce the use of force and agree to the establishment of peaceful conditions in which the security and territorial integrity of all states in the region would be respected." This was more moderate than the statements that Arab foreign ministers have been making in the assembly's policy debate.
