CHICAGO, March 28. Wheat
values broke to within a cent
to $1 a bushel today with all de
liveries reaching a new low record
for the season. Reappearance of
liquidation on the part of holders
of wheat, corn and oats and pre
ceded the fresh downturn of prices.
Wheat closed unsettled at c to
14c net decline, with May (1.00
to $1.00, and July, $1.02.
Corn, c to Hie off; oats, c
to lc lower, and provisions
varying from 10 to 12 cent set
back to a gain of 2 cents.
In contrast with the weakness
which later developed, the grain
markets early showed a tendency
to advance. Predictions of colder
weather with rain had led to a
temporary reversal of position on
the part of a number of traders
who previously were active sellers
but who inferred that adverse
weather would bring renewed de
lay to oats seeding, as well as hin
der the movement of corn and
wheat. Absence of selling pres
sure, however, was- subsequently
less noticeable than apparent de
ficiency of buying power. Then,
the lack of any aggressive support
for the wheat market was given
decided emphasis , after midday
when word came that Canadian
oats were continuing to find a
ready outlet in New England. Be
sides weakness of the New York
Stock , market and in cotton had' a
bearish effect on grain. "
Only as wheat approached the
dollar-mark was there much let
up in the selling after liquidation
here bad once got under way. The
dollar-mark .pause in the selling
of wheat j was also coincident with
depression of corn to 75 cents for
May delivery, a price regarded as
about even with hogs at $7.50,
the first time in a long while that
such an equal ratio has been es
Corn fell to the lowest prices
touched of late. Oats went under
40 cents for September, a new
bottom figure for the crop. Pro
visions sympathized to some ex
tent with the weakness of grain.
