RECOVERY TRENDS
NOTED IN MARKET
BY VICTOR EUBANK
NEW YORK, Nov. 25.—OP)—Re
covery trends generally persisted
in this week’s stock market and
specialized bidding today gave
the list an irregularly improved
^Prices tilted moderately upward
Monday, aided by a little short
covering and mild investment de
mand based partly on dividends,
earnings and the belief the “Little
Steel” wage formula would be
held virtually intact. Opening of
the sixth War Loan drive, though,
tended to divert Wall Street s at
tention. Activity and advances
expanded Tuesday with the 'aver
ages making the second best show
ing since September 15. The up
swing stalled Wednesday as ac
counts were trimmed for the
Thanksgiving recess.
The downward slant was resum
ed Friday when recent buoyant
aircrafts broke in the wake of.the
Lockheed warning of dwindling
profits in relation to gross sales.
Armament issues also had to con
tend with good war news includ
ing the bombing of Tokyo which
revived reconcersion doubts. Liq
uidation, in most cases, never was
urgent.
Today’s start was a shade mix
ed and, while plus signs were
plentiful at the finish, declines
were well distributed.
The Associated Press 60-stock
composite was up .1 of a point at
55 and on the week was ahead .4.
Transfers totaled 338.050 shares
compared with 362,220 a week ago.
At tops for 1944 were United
Corp. preferred, up 1 3-8 in the
wake of SEC conditional approval
of the company’s capital adjust
ment plan, and Schenley which re
sponded to bright earnings pros
pects. Chicago & North Western
common and preferred were brisk
movers on the upside, along with
Pullman.

CHICAGO. Nov. 25.—(JP) — The
deferred wheat deliveries ad
vanced as much as 2 1-4 cents to
day, the market supported by
short covering and mill buying,
but profit taking in the final min
utes of trading erased some of the
gains. Other markets also had a
firm undertone and all three bar
ley contracts were up three cents
at the close.
Wheat returned to the lore as a
market leader in today’s trade.
Prices were off fractionally at the
start, then turned firm when mills
lifted hedges following additional
sales of flour. For northwestern in
terests began purchasing the July
and September contracts and the
demand immediately led shorts to
cover. Most of the buying was at
tributed to anticipation of an in
crease in ceiling prices for cash
wheat.
The nearby wheat delivery lag
ged throughout the day and at the
close was off fractionally under
the pressure of a weaker cash mar
ket at Minneapolis.

PRICES DECUNE
ON LEAF MARTS
(By The Associated Press)
Prices were steady to slightly
lower on flue-cured tobacco belts
in North Carolina and Virginia
during this week which was cut
short by Thanksgiving holidays
Thursday and Friday.
On the big eastern North Caro
lina belt, despite a firm to $1 high
er trend for some red and green
tobaccos, the total number of de
creases was larger than the num
ber of gains, causing a reduction
of 72 cents in the general average
from the previous week. Accord
ing to reports from the War Food
Administration, and the North
Or
Carolina. Department of Agricul
ture, 12,032,109 pounds were mar
keted on the eastern belt at an
average of $44.01 per hundred,
bringing the season’s average to
$42.91.
Many eastern belt growers have
finished their selling and the Wal
lace market closed Tuesday. Sev
eral other smaller markets are
expected to conclude their season
next week, WFA said.
The general price average on the
Middle belt declined 53 cents per
hundred in comparison with the
previous week, WFA reported. A
total of 9,479,325 pounds was sold
at an average of $44.91, raising sea
son gross sales to 136,491,364
pounds for an average of $43.24.
