For the most part gains were con fined to minor fractions, but de ferred contracts of rye scored ad vances ranging to a cent on fairly aggressive buying by local trad ers. The May rye contract finished unchanged after exhibiting weak ness during the first half-hour. Some of the easiness in this de livery was attributed to liquida tion by holders who were discour aged over the prospects of use of the grain in industrial alcohol prbduetion. However, the liquida tion was absorbed without diffi culty. At the close wheat was un changed to 1-8 higher, May $1.72 1-8, oats were 18 to 14 higher, ]Vfay 81 78, rye was unchanged to 1 cent higher, May $1.29 14 to o-o, aim uaney was uiiciiangea to 14 higher, May $1.26 1-4. Traders were interested in con gressional agitation for the re sumption of some alcoholic bev erage production. On the theory this might eventually result in a reduction in rye stocks, if produc tion is permitted, some grain men took a more favorable view to ward the deferred deliveries of that grain.

The ticker tape moved at a brisk iace from Monday—there were ive million-share days—as the re* ’ival of investment demand push* d up prices to peaks for from me to seven years. Switching of die cash to securities again was ittributed to political hopes, earn ngs, dividends and progress of he war. It was noted that peace ■ated issues were among the best jerformers. Rails were the outstanding sprinters of the week, apparently ■esponding to opinions that net ncome, despite rising taxes and vages, would remain at a high evel in relation to quotations for carrier stocks, uus, long aormam, enjoyed a late flurry also on Fri day in the wake of proposals for subsidies to low-output producers and the belief crude rates might be boosted. Feeling that the market’s tech nical position might have been im paired by the lengthy runup in spired trimming of accounts to day. The rail average, for in stance, during the week made a new top since October 1937-; the utilities since November, 1940; the industrials since July 24, 1943, and the over-all average since July 14, last year. The Associated Press 60-stock composite was off .1 of a point at 53.1 for the short stretch but on the week held a net advance of .4. Transfers of 727,200 shares compared with 680,320 last Satur day and were the largest for a final session since July 31, 1943. Alleghany prior preferred jump ed 8 3-8 points to a year’s peak as the company planned to sell a sizeable part of its holdings of Chesapeake & Ohio at an amount considerably in excess of a loan secured by a similar number of shares.
