Speculators Drive Grain Prices Lower By GIL MAYO AP Business News Writer CHICAGO (AP) - Speculators pushed both sides of the grain fu lures market this week but mostly on the selling side and prices were driven generally lower on the Board of Trade. Soybeans and 1964 crop wheat closed with moderate grains, probably because of a shift in specula live positions after expiration of July contracts Monday. The 1963 wheat months continued under pressure and losses there ranged to more than four cents a bushel, but dealers said it had shown some signs of a reversal by week's end. They noted that hedge selling had eased somewhat with harvest of the winter crop virtually completed and movement of the grain into com mercial channels slowing. As usual, the most exciting trade was in soybeans, where speculators always have had more room in price swings because of the absence of a burdensome surplus. That market long has been in fluenced by weather nhd a steadily expanding consumption. The big 'factor this week was a gov ernment estimate of the remain ing supply as of July 1. The estimate of 138 million bushels hit the trade Thursday with a strong bullish wallop. It drove the market up as much as eight cents or more al the opening. However, there was a broad difference of opinion among market analysts and Ihe peaks failed to hold for long. A few analysts were inclined to believe the sup ply would barely meet requirements for the remainder of the crop year. Others held to their opinion thai it still would leave a comfortable carryover. Before trading ended that day, about half the early gains had been chipped away. Friday, profit cashers finished wiping them out as consideration reverted tp condition of the 1963 and $Jie probability that a good deal of 11 would be on the market by mid-September.

More good economic news came when the automobile industry went over the top in production of 1963 models. It was an accomplishment interpreled as proof of the economy's strength despite some weak spots. Impressive earnings reports for Ihe firsf half of Ihe year and Ihe second quarter from many big corporations added to the feeling of wellbeing.

Five unions representing 600,000 workers were ready to strike the moment the changes became effective. The railroads are trying to eliminate what they call featherbedding — unnecessary employment in the light of modern operating conditions. President Kennedy asked Congress to avert a strike by giving the Interstate Commerce Commission authority to deal with the dis pule. This would delay a walkoui at least two years. The railroads endorsqd Kennedy's program as Congress began lo consider the legislation. The chairman of the House Commerce Committee asked the railroads to put off for 30 days the work rules changes.

Marshall said the proposals approved by the Board of Education Friday conflict with what he called the hoard's policy of maximum racial Integration, "The integration plan passed by the board violates United States Supreme Court decisions on school desegregation and would abridge the Negro child's right to equal education guaranteed under the 14th Omend- ment of the Constitution," Marshall said. The SI. Louis Board of Education decided Friday to stand behind the recommendations of Sup. of Instruction Phillip J. Hlckey for limited "open enrollment." Negro leaders in the city had opposed Hickcy's proposal. They also rejected his plan to integrate only "several hundred" bus-transported pupils. The board agreed with Rickey's recommendations that teachers not be forced to transfer to effect greater faculty integration, and that no elementary school district be re-drawn to overcome segregated housing patterns. Under the modified "open enrollment" plan, each school is first filled by children in that school district.

Tor the next day and a half, he fought the fish almost constant- y, snacking and catching an occasional nap when the battle reached a standstill. "But I'll tell you, that man had a taut line almost: all the time," Kimesy said. Mike reported he was keenly disappointed at losing the fish after such a long battle. "I wanted to catch it very much," he said. "I've never let a fish go before and I was scared this one might be a record." But as the fight wore on, it became much more than just catching a . record fish. The world record jewfish catch is about, 550 pounds. Fishing experts described the jewfish as a member of the grouper family. The slender 110-pound boy refused several offers of help because he felt: a real sportsman has to land the catch completely on his own. Mike said he was very tired after the struggle and wasted little time going to sleep after he lost the fish. 4 Americans Killed in German Crash HEIDLEBERG, Germany Four U.S. teen-agers were killed near here Friday night whc-n :heir cur collided with a German :ruck at an intersection, the U.S. Army announced today.
