Irregularity Persists
t
As Stock Dealings
Remain Sluggish
By VICTOR EUBANK,
A>«ocut»d Prtts Pltuncl*! Writer.
NEW YORK. April 28.--Special
ties. along with selected steels, mo
tors, rails and oils, attracted the
principal bidding in today’s stock
market, while many leaders else
where encountered sufficient selling
to stall their recovery.
Possible foreign developments over
the week end inspired a little profit
taking here and there on the two
session comeback. Mild Investment
demand continued, however, on tne
idea the list had been pretty well
sold out because of preinvasion
nervousness, and was in much
better technical shape.
Narrow irregularity persisted at
the start, and the direction was a
bit obscure near the fourth hour.
Dealings remained sluggish.
In front most of the time were
Schenley, American Bosch, United
States Steel, Bethlehem, General
Motors, Chrysler, Santa Fe, Chesa
peake & Ohio, Sears-Roebuck,
Oliver Farm, Houston Oil, Standard
Oil (N. J.) and Anaconda. Lag
gards included Southern Pacific,
General Electric, North American,
Montgomery Ward, United Aircraft
and J. C. Penney.
Farm Prices Index
Declines Point From
1943 Mid-April Level
The general level of farm prices
remained unchanged during the
month which ended April 15. That
index, however, was 1 point below
the average of a year ago.
The Agriculture Department re
ported that the farm price index
was 196 per cent of the 1909-14
average on April 15, compared with
195 per cent a year ago. A sharp
rise in fruit prices during the month
was offset by a decline in prices
of livestock and livestock products.
The department said the farm
price average was 115 per cent of
parity—the so-called level of fair
exchange with Industrial products
and services—on April 15, compared
with 112 per cent a year ago. All
principal farm products were at or
above parity except wheat, cotton,
hay, peanuts, rye and lemons.
The April 15 average farm price
and the parity price, respectively,
for major commodities Included:
Dry edible beans, $6.12 and $5.73; a
100 pounds; cotton 2024 and 21.08
cents a pound; cottonseed, $52.50
and $38.30 a ton; potatoes, $1.37 and
$1.22 a bushel; hay, $1620 and $20.20
a ton; peanuts, 7.63 and 8.16 cents
a pound; wool, 39.7 and 31.1 cents
a pound; eggs, 27.1 and 30 cents a
dozen; milk, wholesale, $3.21 and
$2.55 a 100 pounds, and butter fat,
50.7 and 44.3 cents a pound.
Civilian Food Prospects
For May Unfavorable
By the AnociateC Press.
NEW YORK, April 28 —Weather
delayed planting and storm-dam
aged qtop$ as well as military de-.
mands overshadow favorable aspects
of the May general civilian food
forecast, the Great Atlantic & Pa
cific Tea Co. reported yesterday. ,.
Optimistic features, however, are
plentiful receipts of butter, eggs,
potytoe^ «moked and caiihed meats,
cbffee, tea, spices, fish and some;
vegetables such as asparagus, beetsr
carrots,' green corn, onions, spinach,
tomatoes and celery, a report from;
140 A. & P. field offices showed.
The survey indicated little im
provement for meat ’ supplies and
said excessive rainfall in produce
areas curtailed vegetable harvesting
and slowed shipments. Domestic
cheese stocks were expected to be
lower.

cluded in the single monthly pay
ment. That is all the financing to be j
done. And under the debt-reduction j
feature you pay interest on the exist- I
ing balance only—leaving an increas
ingly larger amount for reduction of J
