GRAIN. AND PROVISIONS Chicago, Nov. G — Wheat rnaximwm decline shortly after mid-session activity dried-up. Failure of cotton and other markets to' advance on the election result appeared to encourage considerable realizing through commission houses and New Orleans. Private crop reports anticipating the next government :orccast plunged as much as 5 cents, Ihe I daily limit, and all other grains I worked sharply lower today under I persistent liquidation. Much of the selling came from commission houses witii eastern connections and was associated with limit declines in cotton and lower security prices. Cash grain prices also declined and there was a considerable expansion in offerings of corn by the country. Dealers reported purchases on a to-arrive basis at close to 300,000 bushels. Trading was fairly active on the decline and the market was unable to produce a sustained rally. The March and May corn contracts sank to a new seasonal low- as did July wheat. Final prices were at the bottom. All wheat contracts were off cents, January $2.04 1-4, corn was down 3 3-8—4 1-4, January 31.31 1-4—3-3, and oats were -off '2 1-2— 3 3-4, November 32 1-4—1-2. Wheat was nominally easy; receipts 60 cars C.orn was one to three cents lower: bookings 375,000 bushels; shipping sales 100.000 bushels: receipts 291 cars. Oats were one to -three cents down with a trading basis of 1-2 to 1 1-2 cents; receipts 76 cars. Soybeans receipts were 119 cars. NEW YORK COTTON New York, Nov.

G —<>P)— Stocks suffered one of it sharpest breaks in nearly two months today in the finst market session after the Republican election sweep. Active selling wiped out the gains registered in an opening rally, and leading issues followed a downward course, a new outburst of offerings in the final hour, than 2,000,000 hare. Prominent loer included U. S. Steel, Bethlehem, Republic Steel, American Telephone, Santn Fc, Southern Railway, Chrysler, General Motors, U. S. Rubber. Goodrich, Montgomery Ward, international Harvester, Phelps .Dodge, Air Reduction, Eastman Kodak, Du Pont. Anaconda, American Smelting, Standard Oil (NJt, Electric Power & Light and Western Union. Traditionally conservative Wall street welcomed \he Republican landslide but followed its practice of "selling on the 'good news." Brokers said the election news had been largely discounted, and customers saw no immediate prospect of improving labor-management relationships, and little to offset predictions of some sort of business setback in 1!)47. Bonds were narrow.
