Chicago. HL. May l!f Acute weak
nesa manifeeted itself today in the
com market. May delivery
time showed a fall of 12c a bushel
but trade in that month was com-
paratively smalL Setbacks in the
more active options. July and Sep-
tembe although not so extreme
crave clear evidence of unusual selllns;
pressure both on the part of lonra
and shorts. Financial strain and ab-
normal traffic conditions were the
chief bearish factors.
Opening prices which ranged from
14c to 2c lower with July J1.67"
to ItS and September $1.67 to
tl 5j. were followed by decided
further setbacks and then somethins;
of a rally.
Prospects of Increased grain re-
ceipts and of general business cur-
tailment gave the bears control of
the market throughout the session.
Prices closed nervous. ZHc to Slc
net lower with July 31.67 tt to
il.o7t and July L7X to iLS7.
Oats showed relative firmness as
compared with corn. Big commission
houses were aggressive buyers and
were able to take all the offerings.
rrovisions were steadied by new
upturns in the value of hogs. Only
slight declines resulted from the
weakness of corn.
Xew Tork. May 19 Stocks were
unsettled throug-hout today's mod
at one erately active session. Financial.
commercial and industrial develop-
ments invited additional liquidation.
Further impairment of Liberty bonds
also was a factor. Sales approxi-
mated 1.0 50. 040 shares.
The closing: was weak.

tory bonds were t Stt St. first 4.
