(VP)—'Wheat prices underwent a quick early drop today following official announce ment of the Washington administra tion’s $150,000,000 wheat proces sor tax and farmer owner plan. Active selling was based largely on assumption that the plan would tend to bring United States terminal market prices for wheat down to a shipping basis under Liverpool. Opening 3-8 to 1 cent lower, wheat afterward fell further. Corn started unchanged to 3-8 off, de clined all around, and then scored gains. Wheat closed firm at the same as yesterday’s finish to vl-8 higher, compared with yesterday’s finish, com 3-4 to 1 1-8 up, oats 1 1-8 to 1 1-2 advanced, and provisions vary ing from 2 cents decline to 5 cents gain.

October dropped to 9.12 and December to 9.25, or 19 to 21 points down from yesterday’s close. Late in the first hour the market rallied 5 to 8 points in sympathy with a somewhat firmer opening of stocks. NEW YORK STOCKS NEW YORK. June 17.

The dollar firmed moderately in terms of the British pound and Eu ropean gold currencies. Commodi ties were slightly mixed, although wheat rallied after an early decline. Cotton was heavy. Among the stock that drew a fol lowing was Bethlehem Steel which spurted more than 3 points on re ports that the government’s ship building program was to be inaug urated soon. National Shipbuilding company shares also got up around 3 while electric boat and American Ship advanced around a point each. American Telephone gained 2 1-2 points, and issues of Chrysler, Gen eral Motors, U. S. Smelting, and sev eral others moved forward about a point.
