The selling in wheat generally influenced liquida- tion of corn and oats and the three commmodities in the soybean complex. Opening wheat futures were down about 3 cents a bushel. Minutes later, heavier sell- ing developed and buyers began to back off. Prices fell about 12 cents the first hour then they remained locked into the close. For several days, strength in the wheat pit was attributed the theory that wet fields might slow down the progress of farmers in the Southwest. At the close, wheat was down 20 a bushel, December 4.71', 2; corn 5 lower. December 2.47; oats down around 5. December and soybeans down 13. November 6.35. SNAKE HIPS DUNSCROFT.

(CP) For the last three weeks Pa- cific sockeye salmon have been flying the last few miles of their 400-mile journey back to the Pinkut Creek spawning grounds on Babine Lake, 360 miles north of Vancouver. The federal fisheries de- partment has hired a Jetra- nger helicopter from Okana- gan Helicopters to fly the fish over the worst obstacles in the creek. The three-week operation was arranged when there was an overrun of salmon into the lake this year. More spawners arrived than there was room for in the nat- ural spawning grounds and in three artificial spawning channels at Fulton River and Pinkut Creek. At Pinkut. it was discovered the natural grounds would be overseeded if all the fish were allowed into the gravel beds after the artificial beds were closed, so it was decided early in September to transport as many fish as possible over a dam and some falls to spawn- ing areas on the upper creek. Fisheries workers at Pinkut Creek estimate about 17.000 spawners were carried by the airlift. Gold InIures WINNIPEG iCP) -Gold futures. U.S. funds. Winnipeg Commodity Exchange close Monday.
