NEW YORK. May 26. Toe stock mar

wards further recovery today, although
developments dealing with financial con

Trading covered a wide range, but there
were no indications of public interest.
Contrary to expectations in many quar
ters, the call money market remained
fixed at 6 per cent.
Domestic, monetary considerations were
overshadowed by the activity of foreign
exchange, with heavy purchases of re
mittances to central Europe, trading in
which waa said to be larger than at any
time since the close of the war.
German bills or marks rose to 3.15. Aus

habilitation of those countries, is believed
to be an important factor in their sus

CHICAGO, May 2a Fresh advances in
the value of corn and oats took place to
day largely as a result of statements by
Herbert Hoover regarding the prospective
food situation. Corn closed strong 1c to
4 fee net higher, with July $1.M. to
$1.699b, and September $1.57 to $1.5T14.
Oats gained lH&Hc to 3c and provi
sions 10c to ?Oc.
Except the May delivery, the corn mar
ket showed an upward trend from- tho out
set. Meanwhile widespread notice was
being taken of Mr, Hoover's assertion that
decrease in agricultural production might
result in this country becoming depend
ent on overseas food .supplies. Buying
power broadened out and simultaneously
offerings grew scarce.
Higher quotations on grain, hogs and
oats lifted provisions.
The Chicago market letter received yes
terday by Overbeck & Cooke Co. of Port
land, said :
Corn Advanced -early on scattered buy
ing inspired by the Hoover statement pro
claiming a food scarcity in this country
due to a shortaae in farm labor. An lr
regular market then developed and ob
tained until shortly before the close when
a further sharp upturn was brought about
on buying stimulated by the court decision
declaring certain, sections of the Lever act
as applying to hoarding of food stuffs un
constitutional. Certainly this does not in
crease or decrease the supply of corn in
this country and in a market way is sen
timental. As far as Hoover's statement
.s concerned, it seems preposterous to say
that our land of plenty will depend on Eu
rope for necessities of life. The statement
is inconsistent when we recall that a re
verse situation is responsible for the cur
rent lvel of prices. Aside from the two
items the news pertaining to- actual law
f supply and demand was generally of a
bearish tenor, particularly as referring to
the growing crop and car situation. Prac-
caliy all stations in Illinois reported cars
in better supply and being loaded rapidly.
The weekly government weather and crop
report said conditions were very satisfac!
tory. Pit conditions leave the market open
to rapid fluctuations In either direction
from time to time, but it will be well not
to ignore the fact that improved distribu-
ion Is very likely to exert quite an infm-
nce in adjusting tne existing o is parity
between corn and livestock prices.
Oats Subject to the same influences as
corn, although showing independent
treneth early, based on reports oi export
business and firmness in the local spot
market. At present prices, however, there
is not much inducement to promote ag
gressiveness on the buying side and it la
patent that the bulges will meet consid
Provisions were sroverned largely by ac
tion of corn. Local traders sold short early
and later gave the support of the advance
Smaller packers were fair buyers on the
early break and sold later on the bulge.
Cash trade dull.
