Lower Grades Preferred at
Same Price as Extras
On the Exchange
PORTLAND, Dec. 17 (AP)
Further general depression in the
market for batter was l-eflected
In most leading markets for the
day. Locally the situation has
been extremely dull with a liberal

On the produce exchange the
late session reflected this condi

for the bear forces. Once again

Its lack of appreciation of real
Quality; preferring even at the
same time, the off grade stuff.
Butterfat market weaker, in
fact even more so than the late
changes In the butter market In
dicated. Fight between the chain stores
and some of the specialty butter
stores for control Is, hurting the
producer. The former premiums
available occasionally for butter
fat, have disappeared. Jhe pre
mium is going to the consumer In
the shape of lower prices during
the fight. Local price is mixed
with No. 2 bids as low as 28c lb.
Egg Mart Undertone
Is Generally Easy
While there was no open mar
ket change for eggs during the
day nndertone of the market ap
peared generally easy with Indi
cations of an early cut In Quota
tions. Talk of strength Is attri
buted' to efforts of some private
parties to wreck the co-ops.
With only a nominal demand,
market for live chickens appears
a trifle weak and especially so for
roasters and for small springers.
No change Is reflected in the gen

There remains a rather active

NEW YORK, Dec. 17 (AP)
Securities were pressed for sale
In larger volume today.
.Stocks dropped 1 to 5 points
under a steady stream of selling,
but managed to reduce their
losses in the final hour.
In stocks many of the old
tandbys sold down to the lowest
Quotation In years before the
late advance brought support.
United States Steel common, for
example, hit 36, the lowest
since 1108 if the stock dividend
Of 1927 was not taken Into ac
count. It firmed to 37 5-8, making
the net loss exactly 2 points.
American Telephone's low of
11 5 had not been duplicated
Since 1922, although there was a
recovery to 117. The average
net decline for 90 stocks was 1.7
points, whll the turnover of 2,
992,221 shares was the largest
of the current decline.
