MARKET NEW YORK, Feb. 2 (AP)—Stocks and bonds ruled steady today in the "ace of the expscted gold clause ruling from Washington on Monday, and leading grains exhibited a bet ter tone. There was no evidence of •eal nervousness, and the trading volume in all markets was at a minimum. While equity'gains on the ftverage were negligible, a few leaders were able to rise major fractions' to a joint or so each. No definite trend vas discernible in the corporate oan list. Government obligations were a little soft in some cases, but lere, as elsewhere, the movement Was not uniform. In the grain pit a little easiness ,n early dealings was erased toward he close. Wheat ended '4 to % of a cent a bushel higher and corn mproved % to %. Cotton was soft with closing declines ranging from 50 to 60 cents a bushel. Foreign exchange traders were not too confident. Leading gold currencies sagged, but the pound sterling was able to gain a little ground. The almost total immobility of the stock list, as a whole, was evidenced by the rise of only .1 of a point in the Associated Press average for CO selected stocks at 38.7. Turnover totaled 399,090 shares.

Z W)—17. S. D. A.—Total cattle receipts at eleven midwestern markets numbered 178,)00 against 156,147 last week and 160,346 the corresponding period a year ago. Although comparative figures show an increase in numbers the supply of beef was only moderate; the run at most centers on early stations included a sizeable luota taken by stocker and feeder juyers. Also the average weight on tilling steers and yearlings is considerably less than last year at this lime. Slaughter steers and yearlings advanced 25-75 with the lower grade at the minimum upturn but still relatively high. Lower grade heifers went unchanged while better grades and cows made a gain especially good beef cows. Country demand absorbed most thin cattle at from sti-ohg to 25-50 higher levels. At Chitagb choice long fed steers reached 13.65, a new peak since 1930. Best light yearlings reached 13.25 while top heavy heifers made 11.75 ftt the same market. An aggregate of 300,000 hogs was 17,000 less than last week's figures and 231,000 under the total last .year for the same week. Weights below 20 Ibs., ariving in more liberal numbers declined generally 25 while heavier averages cleared steady to 15-25 off. The circuit's best price was 8.00 at Chicago and St. Louis. A downturn of 25-50 was made in fat lamb prices with less desirable kinds at Chicago off 50-75. Sheep sold generally 25 lower while feeding classes wore offered in numbers sold 25-75 under last week's close. A few select lambs at St. Louis scored 5.50 while best feeding lambs at Chicago brought 7.65. CHICAGO GRAIN CHICAGO, Feb. 2. (AP)—A moderate late outburst of buying, apparently to prepare for possible surprise developments Monday, gave an upward ^trend to grain prices today at the last. Talk that the United States supreme court gold decision looked for Monday next might be further postponed had an unsettling efffect earlier, and so did weakness of wheat at Liverpool. On the o'ther hand, traders took sharp notice of subsequent Washington gossip that was construed to indicate likelihood the gold clause cases would be disposed of in short order Monday. Wheat closed firm at the day's top level !«-•'); above yesterday's finish, May 96Vi-%, corn unchanged to % higher, May 84-84%, oats unchanged to ',4 off, and provisions unchanged to Vi off, and provisions unchanged to a rise of 17 cents. Corn and oats mainly reflected wheat price action. Provisions eased early with grains, but afterward advanced owing in part to bullish monthly figures relative to warehouse stocks on hand. 01.

Marland of Oklahoma to call ft conference. of governors of oil producing states to meet in Dallas, probably February 15 and 16 to discuss an interstate oil compact. Gov. Allred said after a conference with W. J. Hollcway of Oklahoma ""ity. representative of Gov. E. W. Marland. of Oklahoma, the dates February 15 and 16 were tentatively agreed on, subject to Governor Marland's approval. He may complete arrangements Monday for the meeting. Holloway, Allred and E. O. Thompson, chairman of the Texas railroad commission, administrators cf oil and gas laws, conferred at length, although they announced the discussion largely was confined to time and place for a conference of governors. Holloway ascertained from Gov. Allred that Texas "should at all times stand ready to cooperate with cur sister states to achieve the true purposes of conservation." Added to that, however, was the admonition of the Texas legislature that a compact should be confined to prevention of physical waste, "without price fixing and witbput the creation or perpetuation of monopoly or regimentation." Negotiations for an interstate ccmpact by governors were authorized recently by legislators of Oklahoma, California, New Mexico, and Texas, similar action by the Kansas legislature was anticipated. "In this report," he said, "the committee, which went into the (oil) situation most carefully, pointed out that perhaps a solution to the many troubles of the oil business could be' found in an oil states compact-, wherein the states themselves, by permission of congress, ,could, by treaty, 'solve their own problems." Allred said he invited Thompson to participate in all conferences, "in view of his intimate knowledge of the questions involved and his official position." Preliminary cbrtferences of oil states governors, called by Maryland, resulted in recommendations for a compact, formed with sanction of congress and approved by state legislatures, for prevention of waste of natural resources. NEW ORLEANS COTTON NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 2. (/ FASHION NOTE: New Dress Clips are taking place of necklaces. Trading was active in today's short week-end session and prices took rather a downward slant owing to "inal liquidation in advance of the supreme court's decision in the gold case expected Monday. A good part of the offerings was absorbed by buying by large spot houses. Cables were also rather weak and outside markets were easier. There was some resistance to poor cables at the start but prices soon started to ease off under more insistent liquidation and at ths lowest reached in the *ate trading prices were 11 to 14 points below the previous Close. There was a slight rally of a point or two at the end and th« market closed barely steady with prices showing net declines for the day of 10 to 13 points. New lows for the day 'were reach- in the late trading with March at 12.21. May and July at 12.27, Oct. at 12.27 and Dec. at 12.23, or 11 to 14'points below the previous close. There was a rally of a point or two at the end. March closed 11 points net lower for the day, May and July 10 lower, October 13 points net lower and Dec. 12 net down. Many Entries In Fat Stock Show Entries in the Amarillo Fat Stock show are being steadily received, according to Ralph Thomas. Gray county agent, who is superintendent of the Baby Beef division. He expects between 125 and 150 •alves entered in his department. There will be smaller numbers of pigs and sheep. About 15 calves are being fed in Gray county. Tha show will be held March 4, 5, 6, 7. New Industrial Classes Will Be Launched Soon The industrial classes that have be?n "sponsored by the Hopkins schools have proved so popular that new ones are to be begun upon completion of the ones now under way. Most of the classes will complete their course next week. New classes in mathetmatics, science, engines, nnrl possibly electricity will be offered. Nine classes have been organized by ths local schools, and 170 men have been enrolled. One class reported an attendance record of 99 per cent during the last month. A recent letter from George H. Fern, stntp director, encourages the schools to continue the work and to met with other groups to explain the set-up.
