Wheat Showed strengtn at the out
set and advanced to a premium of
three cents ever Saturdays closing
prices for July but eased off again to
wards the finish, due more to lack o:
outside buying then to any prominent
selling. The general news was mixed,
tains In the southwest being constru
ed as very beneficial for the growing
crop while advices from other sections,
principally in Ohio where the crop to
date has been reported In good shape,
were rather pessimestic. Large re
ceipts were offset by seaboard mes
sages reporting sales of one million
bushels over the holidays, with evid
ence of further good demand today.
Kansas City said exporters were active
buyers of cash wheat in that market.
While it is expected that cash will suf
fer some decline with May out of the
way It Is very unlikely that It will
exert much influence on July which is
selling at an attractive d.scount under
prevailing cash prices.
