Thursday's closing prlco.
Shortly before noon tho sensational
drop of 8V4 cents from tho opening price
of May occurred. For a few minutes the
pit went wild and it was Impossible to

tho country and lack ot buying support
caused tho break.
Tho factthat margin calls are exces
sive, commission houses , requiring 25
cents a bushel on tho May future and as
much as 15 cents on tho July, caused
many persons In tho trade to dump their
