On the basis of recent revisions in estimates of stocks held by Canada, the United States, Argentina and Australia, grainmen today placed the available surplus at almost 1,400,000,000 bushels, of which no more than a fourth should be needed for reserve. This is the surplus available after accounting for home needs, exclusive of carryover. Grain experts said the figures indicated that these four countries have enough wheat to fill domestic requirements until mid-1942, considering reduced exports because of the war and without allowing for new crops during that period. On the other hand, according to latest estimates of Broomhall, British trade authority, world wheat imports in the 1040-41 season will total only 400,000,000 to 425000,000 bushels compared with well above 500,000,000 annually before war broke out. U. S. exports of wheat and flour the first six months of the season were estimated at slightly less than 20,000,000 bushels compared with 32,000,000 a year ago. Grainmen said the record-breaking aggregate surplus in these countries explains to a large extent why far-reaching price-supporting programs have been put into effect in each and why important changes are being contemplated to meet new conditions brought on by the war. These plans range from outright government guarantee and purcff&se of grain from farmers to proposals for limiting acreage and controlling marketing on a greater scope than now is being practiced. Carryover of old wheat amounted to approximately 300,000,000 bushels in Canada, 284,000,000 in the U. S., 60,000,000 in Australia and an insignificant amount In Argentina. To this was added a 550,000,000 bushel crop in Canada, 816,000,000 in the U. S., 83,000,000 in Australia and 275,000,000 in Argentina. From this total of 2,368,000,000 must be deducted normal domestic requirements of about 126,000,000 in Canada, 105,000,000 in Argentina, 50,000,000 in Australia and 700,000,000 in the U. S.

Wheat closed te-lU lower than Saturday, May 78-7S'/s. lowest since last September 21, July 73V4-73 and September 73%-%, lowest of the season. Corn was %-lV4 down, May 59% and July 59',4, lowest since last in December; oats ?i off, lowest since early in November; rye %-l off, lowest- since December; and soybeans down, lowest since December. Lard closed unchanged to 5 lower. Liquidation and short selling which spread over the market was attributed to uncertainty regarding the international situation with war threats in the Pacific and Balkans as well as the shipping toll and fears of an attack on England unsettling trade sentiment. A slight expansion in wheat receipts at some terminals anc sluggish flour demand also influenced sentiment. Independent weakness of corn early in the session spread into other pits. Wheat tried to advance at the opening in sympathy with firmness of securities, gaining as much as % cent in early dealings, bu this rally faded quickly. Receipts at the 12 principal interior terminals totaled 575,000 bushels compared with 423,000 a week ago and 649,000 a year ago, and traders said this apparently reflectec increased country movement in some localities. Receipts here totaled 41 cars, with spot prices off ^a-1 cent. Increased flow of grain overseas from North America was shown in the weekly report of world shipments. North American exports totaled 4,667,000 bushels compared with 3,133,000 the previous week and 4,425,000 a year ago. This included 4,244,000 bushels from Canada and 433,000 from the U. S The Pacific coast shipped 100,000 bushels of U. S. flour to China last week and there was concern in some quarters that any outbreak of hostilities in the Pacific might interfere with this business with the Orient and Philippines. Weakness of corn was attributed to selling from commission houses and professional dealers. Receipts totaled 179 cars but bookings to arrive were only 33,000 bushels and sales 20,000 bushels. Traders expressed belief lower temperatures may help country movement and drying out of cribbed grain. Some dealers regarded the price spread between wheat' and corn as too narrow. Oats and rye selling was largely in sympathy with the action of corn and wheat and demand was slow. Lard weakened in sympathy with grains and hogs, with swine receipts much larger than expected Range of prices on grain and provisions exchange follows: Open High Low Close WHEAT: May July Sept.

Feb. 17—(AP)—The bond market developed numerous cases of individual strength today but was handicapped in rallying periods by softness m U. S. governments and a group of high- priced corporates. The rails did better than others, advancing small fractions to more than a point on investment demand encouraged by a crop of unusually good 1940 earnings reports for some ot the larger systems. A few utilities also found a following. . Backward tendencies in governments and some low-yield corporation bonds continued the trend in effect for more than a week. Treasury loans lost up to IV, points on extremely light offerings and while declines in the top ranking corporate group were mostly fractional, net results for the day was a drop to a new 1941 low for this category in the Associated Press averages. Total sales of 54,295.175. par value, were the smallest since last October and compared with 57,774.900 last Friday. Advancing Issues Included International Telephone 5s at 4054. Delaware and Hudsor 4s at 48 %. Commonwealth Edison .3Ms al 115%, Atlantic Coast Line 4s at iO% and Nickel Plate 4%s at 56%. Losers were, among others. Walworth 4s. Texas Corporation 3s.
