For the second straight ses- sion, soybeans advanced 20 cents a bushel, meal was up a ton and oil rose 1 cent a pound, or 100 points. An earlier limit gain in corn and oats was trimmed. Wheat futures prices fell under sell- ing in the closing seconds and nearby options closed with a limit 20 cent loss while the two most distant options were down about half as much. The demand for futures in the soybean complex again was very strong on the open- ing and prices quickly touched limit levels in soybeans, meal and oil. Some trade later developed in most distant op- tions but in the closing minutes most options were at limits for the day. Buyers were of the opinion that any prolonged Middle East conflict might bring about a critical shortage of food and feed grains as well as edible oils because these crops might be neglected dur- ing the war. With world stocks thinning out, prices could mount. At the close, soybeans were up 20, November wheat 10 to 20 lower, December 4.75Vz; corn up more than 7, December 2.61 and oats up 5, December 1.32V4. Grain quotations Wednesday: Wheat: Dec 4.75Vz; March May 4.45Vz; Jul 3.94; Sep 3 92 Corn: Dec 2.61; Mar 2.66; May Jul 2.71; Sep 2.64; Dec 2.43; Mar 2.46V2 Oats: Dec Mar j; Jul 1.27Vz.

In central and southern dis- tricts, precipitation was light, but rainfall was heavier in northern and Peace river regions, bringing threshing to a virtual standstill. In central districts, threshing was progressing slowly. The majority of crops have been harvested in southern Alberta. Harvesting of wheat is 66 per cent completed, the crop report said, with barley 67 per cent completed and rapeseed 79 per cent. Harvesting of rye was 97 per cent completed and 64 per cent of oats and flaxseed crops had been harvested. Most points north and northwest of a line from Calgary through Lloydminster reported less than half their wheat threshed. On a province-wide basis, threshing still was ahead of last year at the comparable time for most grains. Two years ago, however, harvesting was about 90 per cent completed. About 43 million bushels of wheat, 35 million bushels of oats and 66 million bushels of barley were reported still in the field Grain dryers were in use on manv farms.
