Replacement cattle were Chicago markets CHICAGO (AP) After two days of declining prices, farm commodities generally improved on the Board of Trade Wednesday. The internationally traded commodities also improved. Livestock and pork belly futures closed on lower tones, while shell eggs were mixed. The turnaround in prices was not entirely unexpected. Grain futures fluctuated nervously for about two hours in an uneven pattern. The weather, possibilities of improved production, lessening exports and domestic usage in the United States all appeared to have been taken into consideration at every point prices made moves. The market also appeared to have been somewhat oversold, since prices were at limits or near-limits lower the last two sessions. There were a couple of buying spurts before mid-morning, then the European Economic Community announced it would cut feed grain imports from the U.S. to assure more adequate supplies for domestic users of grains. Futures prices fell. However, in the last hour, new buying developed and. accompanied by short-covering, soybeans, soy oil and meal and oats advanced to limits. Corn and wheat also improved sharply. Silver, copper and cotton futures also responded to renewed buying after some weakness. Wool futures, world sugar and orange juice futures also improved. Cocoa, coffee and Maine potato futures declined. At the close on the Board of Trade, soybeans were up 20 cents a bushel.

NEW YOKK (AP) The stock market faltered again today, continu- ing its severe slide of the past three weeks. The noon Dow Jones average of 30 in- dustrials was down 4.53 to 662.08 and losers led gainers 5 to 2 in light trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Analysts said frustration over infla- tion and concern about prospects for the economy in general continued to grip the market, leaving investors with little expectation of any significant technical rebound before the approaching three-day Labor Day weekend.

Dome Mines rose to Seagrams Alcan and Massey Ferguson to Maclntyre remained unchanged at and Inco at while Canadian Pacific fell i to TORONTO (CP) The chief spokesman for the Cana- dian manufacturing industry Wednesday called on Prime Minister Trudeau to convene a top-level national conference on inflation within the next six weeks "to underscore the urgency of the problem." Walter R. Lawson, presi- dent of the Canadian Manufac- turers' Association, deviated from a prepared text of a speech to a Canadian National Exhibition luncheon in making the proposal. Mr. Lawson said the conference should include leaders from the business community, organized labor and senior federal cabinet ministers. Inflation has reached such proportions "that it now threatens our whole economy and national standard of living" and such a conference would focus public attention on the gravity of the situation. In a text of his speech prepared for the luncheon, Mr. Lawson said the concentration of ownership in the hands of large institutions has led the average Canadian to believe that he doesn't have a proprietary stake in the system at all." He said the situation "is one of the most serious deficien- cies in our present system."

Ltd. reports net earnings of for the first half of 1974, compared with earnings of one year ago. Natural gas revenues climb- ed to from 000 one year ago, higher costs for gas, operating and maintenance and taxes cut into the increase to force the lower earnings.
