Trading In stocks today occasionally was remi niscent of the dullness and hesitation which in pre-war times marked the advent of the new fiscal year and its attendant uncertainty. Despite last week's better bank state ment, call money opened at 6 to 6V2 per cent, rising later to 8 for mixed loans and 10 for all industrials, indi cating increased discrimination against the latter form o f collateral. The new order created by the Ver sailles treaty found no very clear re flection in the course of quoted values, aside from the sustained strength of shares which have assumed a fixed place amonj so-called peace indus trials. Transportations shared only mode rately in the day's movements except ing Texas and Pacific. Rubber issues related to the motor division extended last Saturday's gains. Motors were relatively backward. Food shares came next i speculative favor. Baldwin and American Locomotive, Central" Foundry, common nnd pre ferred, Central Leather, Hide and Leather preferred, American Woolen, American Express and International I Paper were conspicuous among the 'ER BUCK! other strong stocks, sales 1,125,000 shares. Bonds including Liberty and inter national issues, were inclined to ease fractionally. Total sales, par value, $10,800,000. Old United States bonds were un changed on call. - NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE Furnished by R. Allyn Lewis; I private leased wire to all exchanges Closing Bid Am. Beet Sugar 86 Am. Cotton Oil 62 Am.
