Limit losses were posted in wheat, corn. oats, soybean meal and oil futures on the Board of Trade. Soybeans were down the 20 cents a bushel limit for a time, then closed just under the limit. Pork belly futures closed with limit gains and live hogs gained up to the limit of a hundredweight, but live cattle were mixed and shell eggs weak on the Mercantile Exchange. Copper futures fell sharply, up to 500 points. Cotton futures fell as much as a bale on selling. Coffee, orange juice and wool futures also declined, while silver, cocoa and world sugar contracts gained. The big force for selling on the Board of Trade was an agriculture department report on this year's corn production. The report revised the March forecast from an expected record yield of 6.7 billion bushels to 6.3 billion bushels. Lighter hog marketings and reduced hog slaughterings accounted for the buyer interest on the Mercantile Exchange in hogs and bellies. Cattle futures showed some early strength, but it dissipated under late profit- taking along with eggs. World Sugar futures reflected foreign interest in the cash market. At the board of trade close.
