Skepticism Rogardlng Predictions of In-
creased Movement Vpholds Com,
Chicago, Jan. 24. Skepticism regarding
predictions of an Increased movement of
the crop tended stubbornly today to up
hold the corn market Prices closed un
settled, at $1,28 March and $1.25 01.25
May, with the final range varying from
c decline to c advance compared with
24 hours before. Oats gained to c.
Provisions closed 5c off to 22o up.
Reports were current that bettor weather
In the west was gradually bringing about
more favorable traffic conditions on the
railroads, and that the car supply had
been somewhat Improved In Illinois. Be
sides advices were at hand telling of the
largest rural shipments of corn that had
been made since the recent storm. Nev
ertheless, the scantiness of receipts here
and tbs many times of late that hope of
liberal arrivals had turned out to be mis
leading discouraged sellers. The result was
to keep the market within narrow limits,
and to minimize the volume of trade, de
spite a generally promising outlook.
All deliveries of oats advanced to the
highest prices yet this season. Persistent
demand from the seaboard was responsible,
but In the last hour. It was said exporters
had withdrawn from the market.
Covering by local shorts led to upturns In
provisions. Sharp breaks In bog prices
received but little attention.

Indications American Troops
Soon Will Be Holding Portion
of Line Against Blows .
(By Associated Press.) . - n
Washington, Jan. 24 While declin
ing to comment directly upon the
statement attributed to President Wil
son, that there will be twice as many
American soldiers abroad next June
as had ben originally planned, Sec
retary Baker said today;
"The program of the department
has been a constantly developing one,
and many difficulties and limitations
have been removed or overcome.. I
cannot discuss numbers of men , m
France or anticipated to be in France
at any particular time, but we have
made substantial progress." ,
When General Pershing sent his
first battalions into the trenches with
veteran French troops, formal an
nouncement of the fact was made
here, coupled with the explanation
that these were rounding out their
training course. A similar announce
ment either directly from General
Pershing or from the department is
expected when American troops
finally take over whatever sector of
the battle lines they, are destined to
I Recent press dispatches from Gen
eral Pershing's headauarters have
shown that a considerable part of his
force, at any rate, was now regarded
as fully trained. There have been no
hints dropped as to when the Ameri
can 'front would be established, but
the impression is gaining strength
here that the day is not far distant.
