UITHWEST FARM MMKETS
iiwnoNAhGMAiaiM^aMraiiAna^ • lu*
Most livestock and other farm
products held fairly steady in the
face of dull to good demand at
southwest and midwest markets
last week, the U. S. Department of
Agriculture's Production and Mar-
keting Administration reports.
Slow trading clouded Lower
Rio Grande Valley fruit and vege-
table markets last week as lettuce
weakened and cabbage dragged in
the face of a firmer tone on grow-
er prices. Broccoli prices lowered
as other items held about steady.
Citrus met buyer resistance to
high prices. New Orleans report-
ed cabbage and sweet potatoes in
liberal supply at lower prices. At
Denver, winesaps, broccoli and
winter squash were stronger as
lettuce, Brussel sprouts and cran-
Southwest and midwest hay mar-
kets faced slow trade last week
under the influence of mild weath-
er which permitted pasturage of
grain fields and stubble. Fort
Worth sold No. 2 New Mexican
hay at $33.95 a ton and No. 2 Ari-
zona hay at $40.33. Receipts of
hay overran demand at Kansas
City. In North Texas trade, feed
markets weakened under slowed
Mohair advanced four cents in
last week's Texas hill country con-
tracting. Sales for later delivery
were made at 61 cents a pound on
adult hair and 81 cents on kid.
Wool held firm.
Peanuts weakened in southwest
trading as shellers restricted ship-
ments in anticipation of improve-
ed demand. No. 1 shelled Spanish
nuts were quoted at 17% cents a
pound in Texas.
Steady prices and slow demand
marked rice trading in the south-
west. Small rough rice marketings
made reliable quotations impossi-
Cattle were mostly steady to
strong at major southwest and
midwest markets through Friday.
But Monday, some classes weaken-
ACTUAL ROAD TESTS
Worth last week, buyers were ->g-
ed from 50 cents to $1. At Fort
gressive for most classes as year-
lings ruled strong and stockers
found a ready outlet at stronger
prices. Good demand for sausage
bulls at San Antonio caused price
upturns for this class. Oklahoma
City saw stockers and feeders fac-
ing a good outlet on country ac-
count as prices worked up.
Butcher hogs faced active de-
mand at 50 cents at $1 advances
at most southwest and midwest
markets. Monday's top prices
ranged between $16 to $16.50.
Slaughter lambs and ewes were |
steady to $1 higher in the south-
west and midwest.
Eggs and live poultry, both in
liberal supply, faced slow to fair*
demand at southwest markets but
no price changes of importance
Most grain prices turned down-
hill this week, except for an ad-
vance of 4!4 cents per bushel on
wheat. From Monday through
Monday, corn lost 1 to IVi cents
per bushel, barley 2 cents and sor-
ghums 10 cents per 100 pounds.
Spot cotton markets at Little
Rock, New Orleans, Dallas, Gal-
veston and Houston were fairly
active last week. Prices moved up
and down about 25 to 50 cents per
bale. Offerings of equities from
farmers increased at $2 to $5 per

A Scottish court cited a 2,000-
year-old Roman law to rule that

dren born within seven months of

share in his $288,400 estate.
The uncle, Charles Cox, left his
fortune to his brothers and sisters
"and any of their descendants
alive at the time of my death."

Pop's got his feet in the sand, not
his head, because he's a payroll sav-
er. He knows where his future vaca-
tions are coming from. There's no
guesswork about his plans for se-
curity. Automatically every pay day
part of his pay goes into United
States Savings Bonds which will pay
him $4 for each 33 in 10 short
years. Security—future plans—will
belong to other fellows like Pop un-
less you count yourself in with United
