Board of Trade CHICAGO (AP) - Old crop soybean and wheat futures shot ahead sharply on the Chicago Board of Trade today under a good demand. The gain in soybeans amounted to 20 cents a bushel and in wheat, 8 cents. Soybean futures, for the next three sessions, will have a trading limit of 30 cents a bushel, representing a 50 per cent increase over the previous limitation. Soybeans advanced the limit of 20 cents a bushel for three straight days and then the new Board regulation of an increased limitation was placed in effect. After the initial buying flurry in soybeans and wheat, there was some quick profit-taking as prices retreated. The demand for futures was attributed to word that stocks again were tightening. Soybean meal and oil prices were a shade lower, reflecting some weakness in cash prices. Iced broilers were steady to Vz cent a pound higher in very light trade. Rain fell over the central portion of the country overnight and more was expected within 24 hours. This was a major factor in the early weakness of corn and oats. After about an hour, soybeans were 1 to 17'/2 cents a bushel higher, July 6.99; Chicago wheat was V/2 lower to 4 higher, July 4.24; Gulf wheat was not traded; corn was 3 lower to IVfe higher, July 3.31; and oats were unchanged to iVz lower, July 1.64.

Better Control of Cattle Urged DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)There is a need for better identification of cattle, particularly feeder cattle moved through markets, says Kenneth Thatcher, Iowa Farm Bureau secretary. He said one help would be a record of all ownership during the previous 30-day period. "A record of ownership would alert potential buyers to tourist cattle and the need to be watchful for diseases that are associated with stress and the changes in climactic conditions," said Thatcher. One improvement would be to require a trip ticket whenever livestock is moved, he said. The ticket could describe the livestock being moved, including breed, type, approximate weight, numbers and any marks, brands or other identification. Thatcher said branding of livestock should be encouraged but he doesn't belive that farmers would support a mandatory branding law. His comments were prepared for the legislative interim study committee on livestock laws. $6,700 Theft From Vault .

WASHINGTON (AP) — Job-health researchers say they are getting pressure from the Labor Department to tone down their advice on how to protect workers from industrial poisons. The pressure is said to be coming from the department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration, center of a new Watergate controversy also related to job-health rules. OSHA officials want health researchers at the Department of Health, Education and Welfare to quit recommending safe levels for industrial substances that are harmful to workers, sources say. SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (AP) — President Nixon says he believes there has been "harassment on a massive basis of innocent people" by some members of the press and prosecutors in the Watergate case.
