PHONE 223-3921, TABER DAY OR NIGHT JOMNNYCHARLTON Soybean meal was down a ton and soybean oil fell some 75 points. Wheat futures rose some 13 cents early on buying in- fluenced by some trade think- ing that farmers may not meet government acreage es- timates next year and may ac- tually plant less. After a period of profit-tak- ing, however, wheat futures retreated and all distant op- tions fell the limit with some 30 minutes of the session remaining. Soybeans, meal and oil also came under selling pressure generally in the form of hed- ging. However, new selling developed on the theory that hedging might increase with the end of harvesting rapidly approaching. At the close, wheat was 18 to 20 cents a bushel lower. December 4.45; soybeans were seven to 13 lower. November 5.57; corn was five to six lower. December 2.45, and oats were 2'A to three lower, December 1.22.

Saskatchewan grain shipments decline SASKATOON (CP) Shipments from Saskatchewan grain elevators between Aug. 1 and Oct. 17 were down 68 million bushels compared with the same period last year, says Saskatchewan Wheat Pool spokesman M. P. Bjornson. Shipments during the month period totalled 143 million bushels in 1972, com- pared with 75 million bushels this year. Mr. Bjornson, wheat pool director of the country elevator division, said in a telephone interview from Hegina that the drop in the amount of shipments is creating a serious congestion problem in the province's elevator system. "Shipments are just keeping pace with deliveries to the elevator. Stocks in our elevators have not gone down at all since Sept. 15, and there is still more than 50 per cent of the elevator system which is plugged."

A CP Rail spokesman conceded, however, the com- pany has not been able to fill all orders from the Canadian Wheat Board calling for grain movement. Dave Suderman, wheat board information officer, agreed. "We are not getting a suf- ficient number of railway cars in order to move grain out of the prairie region and into shipping he said in a telephone interview from Winnipeg Thursday. Canadian Wheat Board now has 13 million bushels of grain ready to ship at Thunder Bay and grain stocks in shipping position should normally be between 30 and 40 million bushels."
