mnvmam-tam ALTON BVBN1NO TlUtORAPK WBONBiOAY, APRIL U, l»» Olin Earnings In 1st Quarter Set Record EAST ALTON, 111 - OHn Industries, Inc., achieved for the first quarter of 1953 the highest peacetime earnings and sales In the company's many years of steady growth, John M. Olin, president, declared today in an unaudited report to stockholders. Consolidated net income amounted to $4,184,874 for the first quarter ended March 31, equivalent to 80 cent* a share of common stock after provision for preferred stock dividends and minority interests. This compares with net Income of $2,836,581 for the first quarter of 1952, equivalent to 51 cents a share. Sales for the first quarter of 1953 totaled $55,887,824 compared with $43,618,242 for the first quarter of 1952. The Increases can be attributed to greater demand for the company's products and increased operating efficiency, and also reflect to some degree the effect of the elimination of governmental controls. Reserve for texes has been estimated on the basis of present Income tax laws, including the tax based on excess profits which expires June 30, 1953.

IVews of Grains Wheat Adopts Firmer Tone By WILLIAM FERRIS CHICAGO R— Grains sold mostly at slightly lower levels on the Board of Trade today with wheat having a firmer lone than other cereals. Buying in wheat developed on less favorable reports concerning the condition of winter wheat in the Southwest and the granting of funds to Yugoslavia to buy American bread grains. Other cereals, higher'during early trading, turned reactionary about midway in the morning and were not able to recover all their losses. Selling developed on re ports of fairly large sales of Commodity Credit Corporation corn to cash interests. , Carlot grain receipts in Chicago were estimated at—wheat 7, corn 85, oats 15, barley 18, soybeans 21. CHICAGO K— Cash wheat none. Corn: No. 2 yellow 1.6iy a ; No. 3, 1.55-60. Oats: No. 1 heavy white 82 J /i; No. 3 heavy white 79. Barley nominal: malting 1.35-81; feed 1.25-45.
