TWENTY MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 16 1936 HOGS STEADY TO 10 CENTS LOWER SIGNS OF LETUP IN VOLUME SEEN Receipts 1,000 Less Than Estimates and 17,000 Under Week Ago. CHICAGO, Jan. 16. CSV-The level of hog prices showed little change today from yesterday's close but sales were steady to 10 cents below the Wednesday average. Receipts were 1,000 under advance estimates and 17,000 less than a week ago. . Signs of a letup in the huge volume of marketings that followed the supreme court's AAA decision last wek did much to strengthen the market's undertone despite the bearish influence of further weakness in the wholesale pork price level. Pork was reported to be moving through consumer channels at a more favorable rate. Prices on choice cuts have been slashed 4 to 5 cents and more in the past 10 days in many -wholesale markets. Today's run of 20,000, with only a fourth direct, was well above receipts a year ago. Shipping demand slackened but the best slaughtering cattle were mostly steady although there were few available. The early top was $14.25 paid for medium weights. Other killing classes were uneven. ' 'Demand for slaughter lambs was broad but most of the early bids were 15 to 25 cents lower. Sellers were asking around steady. Hog Markets MIDMJEST MAIXKETS HOB prices at midwest market* Thursday: CEDAR ItAI'JDS--Good hoKS unchanged.

STOCK MARKET SMOOTH AFFAIR Profit Taking Puffs Fail to Drive Prices Far Off Steady Line. NEW YORK, Jan. 16. (sPI--The stock market sailed an untroubled course today. Sporadic puffs of profit taking failed to drive prices off a steady line except for brief periods. The promise of a rally under the leadership of steels and specialties had failed to materialize late in the day though some issues in both groups held early gains. Coppers found a few takers at moderate increases in the fourth hour. Rails and oils were mixed. Utilities shaded upward. Among the few gainers of a point or more were Bethlehem, American Telephone, Ludlum, Consolidated Gas, Newport Industries and Greyhound. Calumet and Hecla, Miami Copper and Kennecott were moderately improved. Standard Oil of N. J. and Pennsylvania dipped. The late tone was steady. Transfers were around 3.000,000 shares. Cotton turned lower. Foreign exchanges declined. Gains were narrow. Curb Market NEW YORK, Jan. 16. /r--Traders ID the curb market today continued to show a preference for oils, metals and various Industrial specialties. Some improvement also appeared in utilities, which had been subject to pressure in recent sessions. In the early trading gains ranging from fractions to 1 3 ,£ points featured stocks like Aluminum company of America, American Gas and Electric, Bunker Hill and Sullivan, Creole Petroleum, Electric Bond and share. Humble Oil, Lake Shore Mines, E. W. Bliss, Parker Rust Proof, Technicolor, and Wayne Pump. Bond Market NEW YORK. Jan. 16. (,T»--The bond market appeared inclined to resume its advance oday, encouraged by steadiness In U. S. governments and a renewed demand for rail iens. Federal Issues came out of Uie previous lession's reaction with forenoon gains rang- ng from l-32nd to 3-32nils of a point. Treasury 2%'s and 3H's. 1946-49, were especially llrm. Active demand appeared in a few Indus- rials, resulting In wide gains. Pressed Steel Car 6's scored an early advance of more .ban 6 points. Leading foreign groups such as Italians, Brazilians and French Issues showed a rising trend. GOVERNMENT BONDS NEW YORK, Jan. 16. CT)-- U. S. bonds closed. Treasury 114s 47-52. 115.1*.

Bight people attended Bj ADAM ULISfl tell him all I told you--not half of it, Andrew Darien's funeral besides the preacher, the soloist, the undertaker and his assistant. Two of them were Marcella Cambridge and I. The third, his lawyer, the fourth and fifth, detectives who sat pretty far back in the chapel, and the other three men I didn't know. Later I discovered they had been employes of Mr. Darien. Reporters weren't admitted, for the services were private. But there were plenty of them waiting outside for us. No one except the lawyer and Miss Cambridge went to look on Mr. Darien's dead face when the short service was over. I couldn't have gone if there had been a revolver at my back urging me. I could hardly listen to the eulogies of the preacher who hadn't known Andrew Darien and therefore was extolling him to the skies. It seemed such a travesty that this man should be praised in death when he had been so cruel in life. I never could forget what he had done to Janet. The queer psychological twist that made made him leave me his fortune and browbeat a youngster like Janet, was incomprehensible to me, unless the home that I made for him was the only one he ever had known and somewhere 3n Ms inner self, there had been more than a spark of appreciativeness. The lawyer, Mr. Granet, gave merely a quick glance at the opened casket, and walked away, but Marcella Cambridge lingered there for a full minute, the undertaker standing very close. When she turned and I saw her face, there was the slightest tinge of a smile on her lips. No one would have noticed it but myself, and that was because I knew her so well. 'He looked very peaceful, Mrs. Penny," she said when she rejoined me. Personally, I didn't care bow peaceful Mr. Darien looked in death. [ was anxious to find a private telephone as soon as I could. The small congregation wandered out of the chapel as the undertaker was closing the casket. "It seemed strange to me," Marcella Cambridge continued, "that no one else cared to come to the funeral. Mr. Hemingway always pro- 'essed to be such a great friend of Mr. Darien's and yet when I asked lim this morning if he would share a taxi with me here, he flatly reused. Said he never went to funerals. He was almost rude about it." I agreed with her, although I had Jie same aversion to funerals that vlr. Hemingway apparently had. lowever, in the two years Mr. Hem- ngway had been in my house, he and Mr. Darien were the best of friends. Their offices were in the same building down town, although not on the same floor. In view of tfr. Darien's activities I saw clearly that their relations were more bus- ness-like than friendly. If Mr. Daren were the blackmailer I suspected he was, undoubtedly he used the medium of Mr. Hemingway's small ;ossipy paper for his work. Afterwards, when the will was probated, I found I was right. Mr. !)arien was really the owner of 'Around Town," and Martin Hem- ngway was merely his paid editor, in business hours they had nothing :o do with each other, but at home at night, with the closet door so accessible they must have had a good deal to say to one another. At Jie first glance "Around Town" seemed to be harmless, amusing, bright. It wasn't. The veiled items were deadly threats and Mr. Hemingway's wit was put to good use for his employer's purpose. The paper was a losing proposition financially, but from Mr. Darien's angle, a strong, powerful weapon. In the undertaker's office Mr. ranet stopped and talked with me for a few moments, and I made an appointment to see him the following week. There was a phone on the desk, but I didn't care to use it with a stenographer so close, and a chance that it might have an extension. I couldn't find a private booth. The detectives were much in evidence, lolling about waiting for us to go. Finally I went to the stenographer and asked her as quietly as I could whether there was another phone in the building', a private phone. There wasn't, they were all on the same line, she said, but if I went next door to the drug store, there was a booth, several of them in fact. It was one matter knowing I Could phone from the store,- and another getting away from the two detectives and the reporters who were waiting on the sidewalk. The girl saw my quandary, and suggested I go out by the alley, and through the back door of the drug store. She offered to pilot me, so we left, one of Larrabee's detectives trailing after us. I couldn't help that, but I was determined once I was in the booth that no one would overhear me. I didn't care whether Kirk Larrabee knew I had made the call, but I didn't want him to know what 1 said. There was a chance, too, that Dr. Rudemar would not be in town. I was in the booth and had one hand over the dial, hiding it as I dialed with the other, when the detective came up and leaned against the glass door. I didn't care now He hadn't seen the number I hac called. A feminine voice answered the ring, the doctor's secretary. He had only come in that minute. She didn't know whether he would talk to anyone or not. I gave my name, and after a second, heard his voice. Our interview over the phone was most unsatisfactory, as most phone conversations are. Dr. Rudemar hac been to New York, had seen Emery Upham, and Mrs. Upham's son hac laughed at him. Refused to take him seriously. "I only went to him to help him and his mother. Mrs. Penny. ] thought the situation desperate. I still do in the face oC what has happened since Darien's death. I didn'l but I told him enough to make him feel partly responsible for his mother's condition. He refused to take the responsibility. Laughed at me again. A peculiar man, a study himself. "He insisted to the end that there was nothing serious about the matter, except danger to his mother with a murderer loose in the house, and that he had wired her to come to New York. He gave me her return telegram to read. She is not allowed to leave the city. I don't know what to do now. I turned to you in .a moment of panic, because you seemed a sensible woman when I saw you. I did not mean to say half what I did to you, but I found myself saving it just the same. "It's a frightful position for me to be in, with 10 messages from Lieutenant Larrabee on my desk this minute. I can't accuse-my patient because I'm not sure myself. Emery Upham threatens to sue me if I go to the police. There's the inviolability of my position as a medical man, and the duty I owe society at the same time. Sometime or other, I'll have to see Larrabee and talk with him." "Couldn't you tell Larrabee something else about Mrs. Upham?" I begged. 'Unfortunately, I've made a complete record of her case, an exhaustive one. She's an interesting subject. Those records the police could subpena if they chose." "Burn them!" "I'll see, Mrs. Penny. It isn't only that. It's the fact that already in your house, there have been two murders. There may be another. That's what I am afraid of. There was this servant--" "Lucy dicin't kill either one!" "You have splendid faith, Mrs, Penny. More than I have. I've spent my life studying abnormal cases and if anyone is abnormal, Mrs. Up- aarn is." "You may be wrong, Dr. Rude- mar. You are wrong! Science isn't everything--there's the human qual- .ty to be considered!" I was desperate and the phone was such an unsatisfactory object to plead with. His voice came to me, low, hurried. "How has Mrs. Upham been?" "Splendid. Cheerful." "That would be a natural condi- .ion with the obstacle of Andreiv Darien removed." I had said the wrong thing, but I couldn't help it. I glanced out the door. The detective was still there, lis face very close to the glass I loped the glass was sound-proof, for inadvertently I had raised my voice several times in my efforts to convince him he was wrong. "I have a theory, Dr. Rudemar. My own. Will you wait until I work .t out before you tell Lieutenant Larrabee?" I hadn't any more theory than a rabbit, except my suspicions of Martin Hemingway, but I was playing for time. "How long: will it take you to work it out?" "I don't know. A few days, perhaps." "There may be another murder before a few more days have passed." "There can't be another murder!" Another murder! I clung weakly :o the receiver. Two already-"Don't be too sure the danger is over, Mrs. Penny." , "Will you give me some time?" "I shall. Phone me sometime tomorrow--you're not calling me from the house?" I explained that I wasn't, that I was using a drag store booth, and that a detective was trying to listen outside. With that I hong up, my knees shaking. Some time between now and tomorrow I'd have to think of something, do something. Start unraveling this thread that would take me to the murderer of Andrew Darien and Delia Randall.

W)--Iowa Wesleyan, distinctly a dark horse at the start of the sfcason, rested atop the Iowa conference basketball standings today with three straight victories. The Tigers, however, face certain trouble tomorrow night when the Columbia college quintet, winner of its two state loop games, comes to Mt. Pleasant to see what it can do about the Wesleyan winning streak. Coach Glen Bingham has his Tiger veterans traveling at a terrific offensive clip. They've piled up 143 points in three games, with Reese, Patterson and Frost leading the attack. Wesleyan stepped into the lead position by stopping Central's undefeated drive Tuesday night. The Tigers spurted to a long halftime advantage, and fought off the belated Dutch rally to win, 46 to 36. It was Central's first licking in four games. Right behind Wesleyan, and ready to pounce to the front should the Tigers falter, are Columbia, Upper Iowa, Luther and Parsons, all undefeated but lacking either one or two victories of equalling the Wesleyan record.

Coach Howard Barker may have a few surprises when he lines up fcis team Friday night. A series of changes in the middle weights, in an attempt to add strength for the 125, 135 and 165 pound sections, may shift the Mohawk squad considerably. Comparative scores offer little solace for the Mohawks. Clarion defeated Waterloo East, second place outfit in the Big Four conference, by exactly the same score as It ran up in the New Hampton meet, 32 to 6. The 165 pound and heavyweight divisions were Clarion's only losing bets in the Waterloo match, just as in the Chickasaw contest. Mason City's grapplers picked up some added confidence last Friday night, when they drove to Cresco to wallop the defending state champions by 22 to 12.
