Chicago grain CHICAGO (AP) A wave of late selling again engulfed commodity fugures on the Chicago Board of Trade Thursday and early gains turned into declines. Several options in the major pits touched limit declines in the last 30 minutes as longs took profits on recent positions. Prices were generally weak on the opening with wheat and soybeans down around 10 cents a bushel. Within minutes after the opening, some new buying de- veloped. Local professional, who were short initially, were forced to cover positions in frenzied bidding as prices pushed ahead. Wheat futures rose nearly 12 cents above the previous close and soybeans gained around 8 cents. The buying was attributed to recent heavy rains over wide sections of the country that may have delayed some early harvesting of corn and soybeans. Winter wheat seeding also reported was slowed down. In the closing minutes, new selling developed as proxit- taking set in and prices tumbled. At the close, soybeans were down around 18 cents, Novem- ber 6.42: wheat declined around 10 cents.

Joseph Morris of Ottawa, in a speech to the 28th inter- national convention of the Internationa! Woodworkers of America, said higher con- sumer prices and continued high unemployment is making workers suffer while cor- porations ma'ke more and more money. "Corporate business has embarked on such an orgy of profit-taking in the last two quarters of this year that it would be almost comical if it weren't for the tragic fact that it's your money they're salting away." he said. "Our government is desper- ately trying to ignore this gi- gantic rip-off which they set in motion when they retroactive- ly reduced corporate taxes m May. 1972." Profits have risen 30 per cent in the second quarter of this yer as compared to the se- cond quarter of last year because of the tax cuts, but new jobs haven't been created, Mr. Morris said. He said the tax cuts were supposed to create new jobs and keep prices down, "but we can ask ourselves where are the jobs, and where are the moderate 'ARE WORSE OFF' "Wage and salary workers are now worse off than they were a year ago" in terms of buying power, he said. The CLC vice-president said that attacks on organized labor for "holding the economy up to ransom" are not true. "If we are holding the econ- omy up to ransom, it sure isn't the working people or their unions who are getting the payoff." Mr. Morris also attacked "flag-waving national unions who are undermining the un- ion movement." He said unions must be international when they deal with international companies. Mr. Morris said he is not op- posed to Canadian unions in certain industries, "but in in- dustries where the cor- porations have plants around the world, the workers should have the same union." "I see no difference between the worker who works for Ford in Germany, for example, and the Ford' workers in Canada." he said.
