closed unsettled. V4 SHf n'"1 lower,

changed to '4c higher, oats up 1-Mi

ISc decline to 2 He advance.
It wan generally expected that the
government estimate of tho winter
wheat vlcld for 1 5l would be about
C40,(H)0.0io bushels, whereas the offi
cial figure which were not sailable
fnlil after the market had closed put
SJS.JsT.Oflo hushcls as the probable
total. I'ontrary to a prevailing opin
ion beforehand, the government report
appeared to have taken Into account
the crop damage development!! In the
southwest. Fnllish field advices today
from the southwest made the market
average higher during the first half of
the session, but subsequently holders
lost confidence, especially when In the
fare of light receipts cash premiums
were lowered one to two cents. There
Was also talk of exporters reselling.
Furthermore, a decrease In the visible
supply total turned out to be less than
t'orn and oats were relatively firm

Wheat and Kye
Crops Will lie large
WASHINGTON, May 10. (A. P.)
This year's winter wheat and rye crops
will be larger than last year, while the
hay crop will be about the same, the
department of agriculture's May fore
casts issued yesterday indicate.
Winter wheat acreage showed much
less than average abandonment as a
result of favorable winter weather and
crop of 628.287,000 bushels, or eight
million bushels more than forecast t
month ago, is estimated at the acreage
figures of the May 1 canvass.
Kansas reported an abandonment of
per cent, which was the heaviest of
any of the important producing states
and her crop promises to be about a
million bushels less than last year.
Abandonment in Ohio, Indiana, Illin
ois, Missouri and Nebraska, ranged
from 2 to 3 per cent. Nebraska's crop
will be about 1,500,000 bushels smaller
than last year.
