MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTB POWER STRING QUARTET PLAYS Lions Club Entertained by Local Ensemble; Budget Is Discussed. Salon music ny the Joe Pow'e string ensemble provided the Lion club Wednesday noon with, a mos pleasurable program. Opening with the intermezz from Cavalleria Rustic ana, by Mas caghi, the quartet moved into an in teresting contrast by playin Ponce's Mexican love song, "La Es trellita," Next came Raff's whims cal and fast moving selection, "Th Mill," specially arranged for violin cello and piano. Mrs. Power won an enthusiast! reception with her cello numbei "Who Knows?" by Ball- A shor handling of "Love's Old Swee Song," with background by other in the ensemble, was her encore. Adams' "Bells of St. Mary's," wa the next number by the quartet an Buigini's "Ballet Egyptian," fea tured by its rhythmical swing i pianissimos and crescendos, was a appropriate finale. But the club refused to let j stand as such and the quarte played two encores, the first a spe cial arrangement by Mr. Power o "Bells of St. Mary's" which is mor familiar to the ordinary audienc than the one included in the forma program. The last was the popula "One Alone." The Power ensemble consists c Mr. Power, violin and director; Mr Power,, cello; Joel Manning, violin and Mrs. Mabel Ke!so, piano. Plans were laid by the club t participate next Wednesday in luncheon to be given for participant in the annual Mason City corn show. The budget for the year jus ahead was the subject of discus sion. JURY RETURNS VERDICT OF $40 C o m p r o m i s e Figure Is Reached by Jurors in i Hulsebus Case. After nearly 12 hours of deliberation the jury returned a verdict of 540. for the plaintiff in the case of B. A. Shiley vs. L. B. Hulsebus. Tha verdict was returned late Tuesday night in sealed form and was not opened until Judge C. H. Kelley opened court Wednesday morning. . The verdict, as reached, was apparently a compromise arising from disagreement among the jurors. The plaintiff brot the action to obtamipaymeBit.'of aia alleged board Vv " l ^-Th.e:de£euaa;!it-'e.'laiTOea-th.!itVie .. Id ,for his board with radio which he sold the plaintiff. One of the -features of the tria was the display of the radio in the courtroom, where "it was placed to demonstrate that it was in working order. The defendant, however, was unable to get the radio to utter a sound, a fact believed by those in the courtroom to have been due to lack of aerial or grounding. Demonstrations in Scouting Plannec Several troops in Mason City ar planning to put in window exhibit during Anniversary Week in th downtown windows. Besides these window exhibit there will be demonstrations o scouting in some of the store win dows on Saturday afternoon, Feb 14. These demonstrations will in elude such things as First Aid Cooking, Leathercraft and Knif and Ax work. The Sea Scout Patrol connecte with Troop 13 will put on a demon stration of Sea Scout work. (Continued From Comki Page). I can never--go home--and face it all. I have--ho home." That frightened her more. He had lost his reason in these days of being lost in the mountains! She looked anxiously toward where Jim stood with the rest, and would have called out to him, but Allan stopped her. "Don't be afraid of me. Jetty. 1 might--as well tell you--about it, so you will understand. You are the only one who might--understand." So he told her, brokenly, the whole story. Joretta was astounded. She gasped little, incoherent words as he talked, held him close. At the end, ,she said, "But there ·is no reasn why you- can't come home, dear. Mother will be glad to forgive you, just to have you safe home again." . "You don't know your mother," his voice was hollow, with no expression. · An idea came to her. Jim! Dad hadn't even asked why he was there. She told him'. It was Dowling's turn to be astounded. She pleaded with him to let her.tell Jim his trouble. He would never let him stay there, anyway. So Joretta called her husband and told him x all about it, whilo Dowlin covered his face with his hands, sil ting with his back hunched agains a rock. Jim looked at his father-iu-ia\ with pity. There is nothing so pitifu as a broken, beaten old man wh has once been proud and secure. H put an arm across the saggin shoulders and said with brusk kind liness, "Brace up, dad. You may,.b in a'tight place, but we can hel you out, Jetty and I. What's a son for, anyway, I'd like to know? It' just pure luck that I'm fixed now s I can be of some use. With two Jollj skippers, we'll save this ship yet.' 1 " Dowling raised his head and stared at him. "You don't mean-that you will--forgive me--everything--and help me in the bargain! 1 "Why, 'sure! Haven't you forgiven me? Now we're even. Let's start over, as partners. How about it?" "Well, it's a good thing I'm not your own father, because you might )e as ornery as I am. Big men can ie the smallest fools when it cornea o measuring up to real greatness!" e said humbly, with tears of joy in his eyes.

CUT IN RECEIPTS RESCUES CATTLE Few Buyers in Sheep Market; Holders Wait for Good Offers. CHICAGO, Feb. 4. (/P)--Lack of support of the market for fresh pork resulted in bear pressure against live hogs that finally carried the top under the $8.00 mark. Of the 24,000 swine reported here today 5,000 went straight to slaughter houses from outside points, and 5,000 stale hogs were carried over from Tuesday. Bids were lOc lower than the average of the previous day on light hogs, shippers and small killers seeking premium weights at $7.75. Heavy hogs'met with no reliable outlet. Only the curtailment of volume of bovine stock marketed here, pre vented the market from sinking into a condition of demoralization The week's run ot 31,000 is large than for the. first three days las week, but 6,000 offered today wer scarcely enough to supply curren needs. Competition developed on th few loads of good steers included ii the run, while other grades wer slow and steady. Few buyers were attracted early but holders of light Iambs of choic quality deemed it worth while t hold out for strong prices. Packer did not receive enough directs to af feet the open market demand. Re ceipts of 11,000 carried a large per centage of good to choice, lambs.

A Market Notes j BY TICKJGR FAi'E General business indices, while not Indicative of any pronounced upswing, nhow rests tance to any further lowering of established levels, according to the'February review of business Issued by the National Association of Credit Men. *· Dr. Stephen J. Miller, executive manager of the association, sums up the current situation as follows: "Commodity prices are pegged at abuut 22 per cent under 1026 figures. Steel production and motor car manufacture appear to have .turned the corner. Budding cunstruc- tlon is etill hesitant; car loadings are well under 1930 totals; the oil industry continues to struggle with proratlon problems, and copper Is not yet on a satisfactory basin." INVENTORY TO HEI.P 1331 EARNINGS Inventory write-offs, resulting from the decline in commodity prices, arc conspicuous in many of the annual statements coming to han'l and consequently earnings have been reduced much more than otherwise would be the case. Taking a long range viewpoint, this situation Is regarded as bullish by one of the prominent market operators who declares that by the end of this year the inventory situation will be just the reverse of "what it was at the close ot last year. His opinion. Is based on the belief that commodity prices will he much higher a year hence" and. as a result, earnings will be benefited accordingly. He said that many companies have written, down their Inventories to the "bone." and he cannot help hut believe that this \vlM tend to play-an important part in offsetting any decline In earnings which may -'result from a smaller volume of business this year. As to the stock market; he believes higher prices are in order. He said he would not be surprised, to see high grade stocks selling to, yield as little as 3.50 per cent before long. He pointed to the huge sums, of Id]? capital In the banks and said that a large percentage' of this will ultimately find its way Into 1 the stock market. \VEEKI.Y REVIEW SHOWS GOOD COMEBACK OP BUSINESS AH In all, business is making about as pood a comeback as can be expected under the circumstances, states The Financial World, leading investment weekly. "Some lines," continues The .Financial World, "are not,matting as'much' progress as might be desired, but others are showing somewhat better than seasonal gains." 'The latest figures on naW' construction, according tc thla investment weekly, "show that there has been some slowing up In the letting of new contracts, and the daily average so far this month 1 s below that of December. However, rather substantial decreases In January over the preceding month were shown in each of the years 1927 to 1929; February should show some material Improvement In this field." _ The Financial World article continues, "movement of merchandise as measured 1 by railway car loadings showrd a nightly better than seasonal increase for the latest week, and traffic Is now running but 14 rcr cent below the levels of a year ago as compared with a decrease of about 22 per cent from 1929 figures. Steel operations are continuing their climb, and the plants thruout the country are running at an estimated rate of 47 per cent of capacity RS compared with average monthly rates of 39 per cent and 45 per cent for December and November, respectively, in 1030 COLT.ATERAI, BORROWINGS AGAIN REDUCED The reduction .of 1173,267,572 in collateral borrowings of members of the New York Stock exchange in January brot the tolal to 51,720,345,318 as of Jan. 31, a new low since publication of the figures began In January. 1026. The fact that contraction ivas ess than the $192,000.000 by the reporting federal reserve banks in the closest comparable period Is taken to indicate that loans , of bonds and unlisted stocks have been ! iquidated on a heavy scale. i LAMSON BROTHERS GRAIN LETTER «FIAIN MARKET REVIEW IVHIMT--Our market made a - very good response to the constructive news of the day. 3eat levels were not held, however, owing :o the forecast for some-rain in parts of Kansas, but net declines were only fractional. BroomhaU raised his estimate nf world's Import requirements by 52,000,000. jut predicted t h n i Oils would be furnished sy Australia and the ArRentlne, a l o c a l } statistician revealed that International wheat Ira^e d u r i n g the first half of the current season totaled nearly 400,000,000, which compares with the total movement for the season to be around 827,000.000, which would be the second largest on record. Liverpool was higher, with Argentine offers advanced % to 2 cents a bushel. The K overn- m e n t ipeekly crop report was construed as bullish on the moisture situation, and the cash market was steady. Export sales overnight were a half million Canadian, much of .which wag for Japan. However, a nuan- tily of Mnnltobns was sold In France. A. good deal of caution was observable on the buying side- Thla was due to prediction by the weather bureau that a disturbance on the Pacific Coast might result in the southwestern Kansas tomorrow, thus Indicating a break up, perhaps, of the long dry spell. Our advices this afternoon from Kansas Indicated no chanpe in conditions. Tempa were around 48 and skies clear. Dodge, in the southwest part or the state, reported clear and a li^ht south wind, while Colby, In northwest Kansas, stated that a hlnh wind was blowing, but that skies were clear. Weather will likely be dominant factor tomorrow. CORN--Corn was not as strong as wheat. The cash situation weakencrt, due to expected freer movement, and to the o f f e r i n g of 60,000 bushels by outside terminals to come to Chicago. It was reported also that Ohio corn was being offered at prices lower than Chicago. Ban tern demand was slow. Some locals were reported to have reinstated. lines recently covered. Believe action of corn will depend on trend of wheat for the prcaent. Liverpool due %c lower. Produce MASON CITY, Feb. 4.-- Casn (Quotations ny K. O. Morse.

JP--Bull cliques, grown Impatient with the watchful waiting attitude of recent sessions, experimentally put forward some of their favorites in today's stock m- rkct, but the list as a whole remained loggy. The midweek business statistics failed to provide impetus to the advance, but were perhaps a little more favorable than otherwise. Merchandizing shares made con spicuous headway, partly in response to Woolworth's January sales report, showing a gain of 4% per cent over the like period 1930. Woolworth, Sears, Montgomery JVard, and best made gains of around a point, and Macy sold up more than 2. A few issues were pushed up 2 to 3, including American Tobacco B, International Business Machines, Johns Manville. and Case. Several of the utilities rose a point or so. including American Water Works, American and Foreign Power, Electric Power and Light. Consolidated Gas. and Stone and Webster. Miscellaneous issues rising a point or-so included Eastman, Loews, Air Reduction, Freeport Texas, American Can and Continental Can. Rails were inclined to ease, particularly the Rock Island issues, reflecting deferment of common dividend action. The weekly steel trade reviews had been expected to show little change, and indicating a gain in Ingot output from 47 to 48 per cent c? capacity, were favorably received." The weekly petroleum statistics showed a drop of 24,650 barrels in daily crude output, and only a small gain in gasoline stocks on hand. Standard of Nebraska reduced its dividend, the third standard unit to take such action. Also, Ohio oil was sold, apparently in apprehension of unfavorable dividend action. The National Bellas Hess issues, which recently had a spurt in re? sponse to its January sales report, fell back on omission of the preferred dividend. Curb Market NEW YORK, Feb. 4. (/T»--A moderate appreciation In volume attended a slow upward movement on tfte curb market today. The leisurely rally grew out of early Irregularity and: a stubborn resistance to selling. Recent declines nave been narrow, bringing out Ultle or no liquidation, so that come professional traders regard the market as soltl out, at least temporarily, and ate curtailing 'their , short lines. Utilities mustered up a (air decree of vitality and there were small but general advances In that Broup. In the oils Vacuum pained a point and Standard of Indiana Improved slightly. International Petroleum was rather cosy. Cumberland Pipe rallied a couple of points. · Trading In the specialties was quiet and there were few wide changes In price. Insurance company of North America .-Urength- encd. with Dresser "B," Ford Limited, Libby McNeil, Tung Sot, Canadian Marconi and General Aviation following the upward trend. Interest in the investment trusts was nominal, Shennndoah preferred rose a point nnd moderate Improvement appeared In Public Utility Holding, Call money renewed at 2 per cent- Bond Market NEW YORK. Feb. 4. (.T).--There were further signs of Readying influences at work. In the bond market today, resulting.In maintenance of the upward trena which developed yesterday." Gains made by Uulled Stales governments were extended by large fractions and the course of corporate investments straightened out to eliminate most oC the Irregularity. Advances were fractionally hut the appearance of the list reflected a firm tendency. Tho unexpected reduction In hill rates, back to the lowest levels in the history of the American acceptance market, eliminating the rise that followed the disturbance in U. S. governccnts, was a. reassuring development. The presence of sufficient buying demand for government securities to cause f u r t h e r appreciation in the price level was accepted In Investment circles .na Indicating that the street has revised Its opinion of- w-Viat is moat Hkely to happen - I n Washlnjrton.
