Major Centers Are Fairly
Active and Price Changes
Are Small.
Produce markets were following
about the usual course for the time
of the year near the beginning of
the month according to the United j
States Department of Agriculture.
Trade was fairly good in the large |
centers. Price trend, while mainly'
downward, was r.ot showing many
sharp changes.
Eastern carlot shipments are mostly
potatoes, with a scattering movement
of onions, carrots, apples and miscel
laneous early produce. Total apple |
shipments decreased about one-fourth,;
but potatoes gained 10 per cent the j
last weeek of April.
Asparagus in carlots decreased rap- I
idly as home supplies entered the j
local markets. Other lines decreasing
were oranges, spinach, celery and beets, j
Larger carlot supplies of strawber- j
ries, lettuce, beans, peas and peppers j
were on the way. Receipts of Western |
cantaloups and cherries and Southern !
green corn are small but increasing, j
Potatoes Fairly Steady.
Trade in potatoes continued quite
active and recent strong price posi
tion is being maintained fairly well
without much further change. East
ern carlot shipping points report sales
of No. 1 sacked stock from $1.85 to
$2.10 per 100 pounds.
Chicago carlot market quoted prices
firm around $1.70. Supplies were re
ported heavy in Boston, but moderate
at other Eastern points, and demand
slow to fairly good on old and new
stock.
Prices of Southern potatoes are de
clining quite steadily with increasing
supplies and sales of Florida, Louisi
ana, and Alabama potatoes range
$3 to $3.50 in Northern markets.
Barrel pack sells mostly at $4 to $5.50.
Louisiana shippers are getting about
the same price per 100 pounds as
quoted for old-crop potatoes in North
ern Maine and Western New York.
Old Onions Nearly Gone.
Supplies of old onions are apparently
cleaning up in Northern producing
sections, although Michigan still some
times ships 20 cars a day and New
York ships a few cars daily. Cool
weather has prolonged the old crop
market season considerably and some
of the best stock has been selling as
high as $1 per 50 pounds in New
York, which is close to the price of j
Texas yellow onions. Most sales of j
old onions are between 50 cents and
75 cents in Eastern markets.
Prices of sweet potatoes maintained \
recent gains. Sales of Virginia,
Maryland and Delaware sweets ranged
$1.25 to $1.40 a bushel. Some stock
of the Jersey type reached $1.75 in
a few markets.
The asparagus season Is moving
Northward, with important supplies
from Maryland and New Jersey. This
stock sells at $1.75 to $2.50 per dozen
In Central markets. Considerable
Far Western asparagus is still on the
market, but prices have been rapidly
declining in competition with fresh
homegrown supplies. The carrot mar
ket remains nearly unchanged.

BY VICTOR EUBANK,
Associated Press Financial Writer.
NEW YORK, May 2.—The stock
market lacked support today and a r
lower drift was In evidence after an ,
irregular start.
Losses at one time ranged from 1
to 3 points or so, with American Tele
phone leading the downward slide
In the final half hour prices stiffened
and the close was only moderately
heavy. Dullness ruled throughout,
with transfers approximating 400,000
shares for the short session.
It was one of the smallest trading
volumes since November, 1934. The
ticker tape was frequently motionless.
Several of the mining issues, includ
ing Dome, United States Smelting,
McIntyre and Alaska Juneau, were in
demand and scattered specialties held
their own.
The major telephone stock was
down more than 2 points at one time «
to around its low of ttie year. It
came back, along with the others, in
the final lap and virtually canceled its
decline.
Among backward shares were United
States Steel, Bethlehem, Chrysler,
General Motors, Consolidated Edison,
Westinghouse, Allied Chemical, Case,
Anaconda, Standard Oil of New Jer
sey, Douglas Aircraft, New York Cen
tral, Santa Fe and Pennsylvania.
Despite the arrangement of further
gold shipments from Paris, the «
French franc was fairly steady in
terms of the dollar. Bonds were ir
regular, with United States Govern- .
ments easier. Wheat futures were a
bit heavy.
Traders, generally, were disinclined
to get too far out on a limb in viev*
of the cloudy European situation, tht
French run-off elections tomorrow and
the liklihood that the Supreme Court, 4
on Monday may hand down the long
awaited Guffey coal act decision be
fore taking its Summer recess.
The boardrooms were rather bare of
brokers as well as customers, as many <
began their week end holiday early.
The exodus from the financial district
to Churchill Downs for the Derby
was said to have been the largest since
the gala days of 1929.
New York Cotton
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, May 2.—Cotton futures
opened steady, 1 to 5 points advance
on higher Liverpool cables and trad';
buying. May. 11.52; July, 11.13; Oc
tober, 10.28; December, 10:30; January.
10.33; March. 10.38.
There was some buying of new-crop
months through houses with foreign
connections at the opening, but the
initial demand was supplied by a little
hedging and local selling.
Prices eased slightly during early
trading. General buiness was very
quiet with traders inclined to await
developments after the fluctuations of
the past week. *
Selling of new-crop positions be
came a little more active after the call
on reports of rains in Oklahoma. Old
crop positions were about 2 to 3 points
net higher at the end of the first hour.
The new crop dropped a point or two
below yesterday's closing quotations.
There was a sale of May early at
11.56, or 6 points above yesterday's
average middling quotation of 11.50
at the eight markets, but the price
later reacted to 11.53. Local observers
saw no signs of pool selling.
Futures closed steady, unchanged to 8
lower.
