,, Grain prices -srere Harply hlgrher at the
close of Saturday's market. At the open
ing there was some, weakness caused by
lower cables and lack of outside bt.jinc
Interest, but there were so many symp
toms of another bull movement by local
and Chicago manipulators that prices
quickly rallied. Few traders cared to go
'short over Sunday-, and those who alteady
were short rushed to coier. Armour was
raid to be the moving force behind the
advance In Chicago, and a local operator
was said to be looking after the bull cam
paign here.
Corn opened easy, but later had fairly
good support and closed higher In line
with wheat

while the new-crop positions were unchanged
to 2 points higher The declines were the re

comml"slon-houses and Lurope There was,
however, little aggressive selling, but the bull
