Stock Market Takes
Irregular Pattern
And Ticker Slows Up
By th» Associated Press
NEW YORK, April 24.—The stock
market settled into an Irregular
pattern today after three advancing
sessions.
Industrials and rails showed re
viving tendencies after early drops,
but many pivotals stayed in losing
territory. The ticker tape slowed
virtually to a crawl after a fairly
active opening, with changes held
largely to fractions. Near the fourth
hour the list had a well-mixed
appearance.
On the offside much of the day
were General Motors, Goodrich,
U. S. Rubber, Chesapeake & Ohio,
Owens-Illinois, United Carbon and
Baltimore & Ohio. Recovering bal
ance were Chrysler, Bethlehem,
Southern Pacific and Scheniey.
Strong spots included American
Woolen. Joy Manufacturing (on a
six-month earnings upturn). Union
Pacific, Kayser (on an extra divi
dend). Air Reduction, Public Serv
ice of New Jersey and Eastman
Kodak. v
Bonds were steady.

Senate Asked to Ratify
Narcotics Agreement
ly rt>« Aueciatyd Pnu
President Truman yesterday sub
mitted to the Senate an internation
al agreement to transfer to the
United Nations the functions and
controls over narcotics formerly
vested in the League of Nations.
Government officials said the
agreement was designed to continue
control over such narcotics as opium
and morphine without risking the
possibility of unsupervised distribu
tion.
. A report by the Secretary of State,
accompanying that document, em
phasized the need for Senate ratifi
cation of the transfer because of an!
increase in the sources of narcotics!

Chicago Grain
CHICAGO. April 23 UP).—Moderate J
commercial buying gave a steady tone to,
the grain futures market today, although ■
trading was quiet and the market seemed
to be awaiting new developments before i
making a determined move In either dt-;
rection.
Buying of wheat was based on addi-;
tional purchases of flour by the Production i
and Marketing Administration and reports,
of flooded ground In some areas of the
Northwest. Com was supported by lifting i
of hedges against sales of more than
1.000.000 bushels yesterday te the Com-1
modity Credit Coro, at Kansas City.
In contrast to grains, lard futures
baeked down sharply under moderate sell
ing. Losses extended to more than *1 a
hundred pounds In nearby deliveries. Lower
prices in fats and oils and another break
in live hogs encouraged the jelling.
New York Cotton
NEW YORK. April 23 UP.—Colton fu
tures turned reactionary after early firm
ness today aa the market encountered
heavy profit taking and hedge selling.
Rarlr gains of about *1 a bale were con
verted Into losses extendin- to *2 before
the msrket recovered parti»n» on mill
buying and short covering U1,J on
Price advances earlier this week brought j
out more spot cotton st the primary'
markets, which was refleeted tn today’s
hedging operations ,
