Wheat, corn and oats gained from 5 to 15 cents a bushel, "but soybeans, meal and oil declined. Silver futures increased up to 32 cents an ounce in New York, while copper gained 750 points and cotton up to 54 a bale. Cocoa futures increased about 250 points, while coffee futures were unchanged to 100 points higher. Wool futures were down as much as 9 cents and frozen concentrated orange juice SO points. Pork belly futures fell to their lowest levels in fw'o years on the merchantile exchange on losses ranging to 500 points. Live cattle declined S2.35 a hundredweight and live hogs up to nearly S3 a hundredweight. Shell eggs Gold prices LONDON (AP) Friday's closing gold prices in U.S.-dollars an ounce: London 155.00 Paris 163.95 Frankfurt 159.21 Zurich 155.50 Hong Kong 154.27 Beirut 5.123 a kilo. also closed on a weak tone. The demand for wheat, corn and oats was activated by weather developments. SPECULATION Soybeans, meal and oil came under some speculative selling after trade sources noted that some farmers in the U.S. might divert acreage to soybeans if they cannot get their corn into the ground. The demand for silver futures was linked most of the time to gold prices nnd hopes that the U.S. government will permit citizen ownership of gold. Copper and cocoa also rose on speculative demand and cotton advanced on buying linked with the weather. Heavier cattle movements and lower cash level prices influenced sellers of cattle and hog futures. Pork bellies fell back on selling with hog prices and large stocks. At the close on the board of trade Friday. Chicago wheat was 12 to 15 cents a bushel higher. July 3.65: Gulf hard red wheat 8 higher. July 3.90N: corn 6 to 11 higher. July 2.78: oats 5 to 9 higher.

SR5.724 prolit. two Stock trade momentum By WENDY KOSKN The Canadian Press Trading on all major Canadian stock markets gathi'rvd momentum this week, fed by signs that interest rates may be abating. Dealers say that although the environment of higher interest rates, inflation and production shortages still remains, the picture looks brighter. While the market may not have reached its bottom, they say. there are many attractive slocks selling at or near book value and providing high current yields and recovery prospects. Analysts predict market in- activeness and investor disinterest may change abruptly within the next one to three months. They see the catalyst as the start of declining trends in inflation and interest rates. The federal election campaign also is causing some investors, including dominant institutional funds, to delay their decisions. Dealers say a decisive victory for one of the major parities would have a positive effect on the market The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials was sharply higher on the week, reacting to predictions of lower interest rates.
