I CHICAGO, Dec. 14. Strength de
veloped in the wheat market Monday
j largely as a result of buying based on
.opinions that bearish financial factors

cember 1.68 3-4 and March (1.61 3-4.
Corn gained 1 to 2 1-8 and oats 3-8 to

of offerings Indicated that the market

that ensued was credited t exporters
