Grain Prices Show Advance Chicago, (/P)—Grains advanced Thursday on the board of trade, led by the deferred wheat contracts. Gains were not large and trading continued in its holiday rut. In contrast, soybeans dropped more than a cent. Buying in July and September wheat came in part from previous short sellers. It was based on the agriculture department's parity report, which showed no decline in parity, between November and* December. Many traders had expected the decline oi recent months to continue. Wheat at noon was & cent lower to -J cent higher, May $2.28jj, corn was i to ;{ cent higher. May $1.49J, oats were i cent lower to 1 cent higher, May 78J, and soybeans were j} to 1J cents lower, March $2.591- The commodity credit corporation announced it had purchased 1,485,000 bushels of corn at Chicago and 785,000 bushels at Kansas City Wednesday. The agency's premium bid remained unchanged Thursday. This government buying has been stepped up sharply in the past few days.

Stock Support Fades Away New York, (fP) —Early support for stocks faded away Thursday and the market slowly tipped downward. Losses ranged up to a point for key issues but there was still a substantial number of plus signs. For a while it seemed likely that a year-end rally, on which Wall Street has been betting for days, might get under way. The market moved upward at a smart clip Wednesday and the direction was forward Thursday after a slight hesitancy. Business tended to slacken after fairly lively turnover although numerous large blocks of stock appeared on the ticker tape. Turnover for the full session was at the rate of around 1,400,000 shares. This would compare with ],380,000 Wednesday which was close to tops for the month. Veterans Must Exchange Certificates Veterans now holding certiii- cates of eligibility and entitlement to -take training under the G. I. bill of rights issued prior to Sept. 1, 1948, will have to exchange those certificates for new ones if they plan to enter into training after Jan. 1, 1949, J. E. Cooksie, | officer in charge of the local Veterans Administration office said Thursday. Cooksie stated that due to the great demand for certificates of eligibility and entitlement placed upon the VA in 1946, a system was inaugurated to issue the certificates with as little delay as possible. Therefore, no file was set up at that time and no claim number issued. If the certificate became lost or destroyed, a new application had to be filed and a new certificate issued, and this sometimes caused considerable delay and inconvenience to the veteran. On Sept. 1, 1948, Cooksie said, the VA went back to setting up files and issuing claim numbers for all applicants requesting certificates of eligibility and entitlement. It takes a little longer at the outset to get the certificate, Cooksie said, but after the vet-' eran enters into training, his subsistence comes through faster as most of the paper work has already been accomplished. Cooksie suggested that all veterans holding the old type certificates (dated prior to Sept. 1, 1948) should get in touch with the VA immediately to effect issuance of Clear Lake Briefs John Piilmetcr was taken by ambulance to Park hospital, Mason City, Wednesday.
