Th future wheat situation was strong
lodav and the rise la wheat was followed
by good gain In corn and oat. There was
nractleallv no important news on wheat ex-
mpt the political situation, but tt had little
effect on today's market, th bulge today
btinc more the result of short covering.
Tho Argentine crop situation was the
- governing factor in corn and was regarded
as very bu list.
Oat made comparative gain with wheat
and corn. May oats closing o higher and
July about ie nigner.
