   Corn, Soy Futures Race to New Highs; China Buys US New-Crop Corn

   Old- and new-crop corn and soybean futures rose sharply in Thursday
overnight trade and again Friday, setting new contract highs and led by
November beans. World veg oils -- including palm oil, canola and bean oil --
all set new highs. Minneapolis wheat soared to another new high on expanding
drought in the Northern Plains, but only finished slightly higher.
