Prices at the close were generally irregular Prices moved rather hesitatingly a few cents then a few cents lower in the major pits although there were a couple of sustain- ed buying drives in wheat and the soybean market at one time. Wheat futures opened un- changed to five cents lower despite a couple of good closed that way. Word from the country that the corn harvest was proceed- ing well despite some light weather problems also in- fluenced bears. Some export business in the offing was an early factor in strength of the soybean market but this collapsed as local professionals took profits. At the soybeans were 2 cents lower to 5 Nov. wheat unchanged to 5 Dec. corn 2 lower to IVz Dec. 2.34V4 and oats to Dec. 1 20. Live cattle futures fell posting another limit loss on the mercantile exchange. Pork belly and shell egg futures were but live hog futures closed on a mixed tone. silver and wool futures were sharply but cotton was up the with smaller gains in coffee orange juice and world sugar contracts. The selling in live cattle futures was linked to ex- cessive marketings of cattle at the major stockyards in the .country as well as to some weakness in live steer and dressed beef prices. The mix- ed close in live hogs came after notice of a drop of as much as in cash hog values. Pork bellies rallied in expec- tation of a light hog run today. Shell eggs advanced on im- proved clearance of cash eggs. There appeared to be some easing in the tension in the middle east as secretary of state Henry Kissinger an- nounced agreement to ex- change ambassadors and this influenced selling of copper and silver futures. Wool futures also fell as Australian cash values eased. The limit gain in cotton was attributed to a strong demand influenced by generally poor weather in growing areas. Improved trade and a good de- mand were factors in the slight gains in world coffee and orange juice futures. Farm commodities on the board of trade moved in an un- even fashion.

Mr. speaking to the annual meeting of United Grain said the total grains income for the coining year is estimated at an amount that dwarfs anything we've ever seert before in the prairie grains In the light of the ex- perience during the last 20 which has seen boom followed by now is the time to tackle some of the difficulties which have continued to the grains industry over the During the last two Mr. Lang said there were two major income peaks which in- dicated flourishing times for the industry. The first was in 1952 when grain sales provided farmers with almost billion. its day that was an all-time The second was in 1966 when the over-all grain income figures climbed to just short of billion. as was that after each of the peaks came another depress- ing downturn of income into the Mr. Lang said the impact of the current sharp income up- swing is difficult to fully com- prehend it does create the right atmosphere for deal- ing with some recurrent Free hand to sell feed grain urged EDMONTON Otto Lang's attempts to resolve the feed grains question has resulted in chaotic political repercussions and an un- precedented level of unprin- cipled agitation that has played on the prejudices of the directors of United Grain Growers said today. The directors said in a ma- jor policy statement to delegates at the organization's 67th annual meeting that prairie farmers should be allowed to sell feed grains anywhere in Canada as a means of providing equal treatment to all farmers. Earlier this Mr. minister responsible for the Canadian wheat an- nounced an interim domestic feed grains setting up the means for farmers to sell outside the wheat board. The government will introduce a permanent policy for the next crop the minister said. The development of a domestic feed grains policy has been political and concerned with not grain and the 12-man board said in the annual report. The directors suggested two either complete government including over farm-to-farm or complete freeing of the non- board market as now exists in the Peace River region of British Columbia. the directors said they rejected complete government control.
