SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 30 1936 HOG PRICES STAY ON DOWN TREND MARKET DROPS 10 T015 CENTS Cattle Weak With Bidding Unevenly Steady to 25 Cents Lower. CHICAGO, Jan. 30. UP)--The downward trend of hog prices continued today as producers shipped a. slightly expanded volume of receipts to market. Adding to the bearishness of supplies that exceeded demand was the fact that the wholesale pork market continued weak, prices ranging steady to _50 cents lower, indicating the sluggish retail trade had not improved despite cold weather. Hogs were 10 to ID cents lower, the top sinking to 510.10. The market had 22,000 fresh hogs, which was 4,000 more than had been expected and more than triple the size of receipts a week ago when the weather was hitter cold. Cattle were weak. Early bids were 25 cents lower on common kinds and unevenly steady to 25 cents off on better grades. Shipping demand for the best cattle was slow and narrow. A few early sales of better grade steers were made at Sll to $11.50. Lambs were held for steady prices although bids were lower. Dullness has been the dominant feature of the dressed meat trade for the past two weeks in spite of cold weather which usually stimulates demand. Retailers reported the cold kept people at home and had slowed business, Hog Markets .MIDWEST HOGS Hog prices at midwest markets Thursday: CEDAK KArLDS--Hogs 150-160 Ibs, $8.75 09; 160-170 Iba. 59SI9.20: 170-180 IDs. {9,10 Sf9.35; 180-250 Iba. $9.30Q;8.55: 25v-270 Ibs.

CHICAFO, Jan. 30. CW--Renewal of inflation talk rallied wheat late today after prices had touched the lowest level witnesed in more than a month.. The rallies followed Washington reports that the inflation bloc in congress had succeeded in appending to the farm bill a currency expansion plan with a view to restoring prices of 1926 parity. A restraining influence on wheat rallies, though, was continued weakness of the Winnipeg market. Wheat closed irregular, *4 lower to Vs higher compared with yesterday's finish, May 99%@%, com unchanged to % up. May 59%@%, oats unchanged to % higher, and provisions unchanged to 10 cents decline.

NEW YORK, Jan. 30. VB--Various steels, rails, utilities and specialties breasted profit taking waves in today's stock market, but there were a number of issues unable to hold their heads above water. Radio preferred "B" jumped 4 points or so and Douglas Aircraft gained 2. Improvement was shown by Consolidated Gas, Columbia Gas, N. Y. Central, Delaware and Hudson, U. S. Steel, American Steel Foundries, Standard Oil of California, Consolidated Oil, Warner Brothers and Electric Boat. American Can dropped 4, and Case, Deere, Continental Can. U. S. Smelting, Schenley, Hiram Walker and Distillers Corporation, were off 1 to 3. The motors were easier. The late tone was irregular. Transfers approximated 2,800,000 shares. The radio preferred issue responded to optimistic expectations that holders would benefit materially by the new recapitalization plan now. being considered. Several of the steels reflected reports of renewed orders for rails and freight cars by the principal carriers. Curb Market NEW YORK. Jan. 30. f.PJ--Curb market stocks continued to move narrowly today. The trend was slightly irregular. largely because of losses in utilities and metals. Industrials and specialties were generally Higher. Creole Petroleum was a trading favorite during the early part ot the session, advancinp: 1% points to 30, a new 1935-36 high. Gulf Oil also was hlghber, alonK with Sher- wln Williams and Texas Gulf Products. Losers of small fractions included American Gas, Electric B'ond and Share, International Petroleum, Montgomery Ward "A," and Pioneer Gold- I-ake Shore Mines was unchanged. Bond Market NEW YORK, Jan. 30. i/T)--Quiet steadiness In U. S. government bonds contrasted today with a brisk turnover In corporate Issues at higher prices. In the government list small fractional gains and losses were evenly distributed. Treasury 2;' s s and 3s tilted slightly ahead. Home Owners Loan 3s yielded a moderate fraction. Dealers said the pressure ot idle funds was somewhat more evident in the corporate section, an opinion reflected by advances In both high and low price brackets. Buying of such low yield issues as American BolUnK MH1 4VaS, Santa. Fe 4s and PEP- clflc Gas 5s had Its counterpart in a continued good call for obligations bearing larger returns. The continued overflow of excess funds from the low ylRld loans into those quoted a t lower prices was confined largely to the rails. B'ond men said Wednesday's new average Fth for rait equities had stimulated carrier otili Rat Ions. Foreign loans were dull and mixed.

Refined settled at 1.65c for fine granulated BEAD THIS FIRST: Ihora Dahl, alone In New York, u seeking a position through an employment agency. NOW CO ON WITH THE STOKE CHAPTER 2 "May I apply for the position?" "If you care for the name and address,' 1 offered the woman at the employment agency, "I think I might let you have them. Please understand, however, that the Taggart Agency is not to be represented in any further transaction with Mr. Marsh. I must make that perfectly clear. We are neither sending you nor recommending you. I am merely telling you that this place was open recently. It may be filled by this time. Though I doubt it." Miss Taggart's patrician nose was very nearly guilty of a sniff. "That is so kind of you. Please let me have the name." Miss Dahl produced a pencil and paper from the neat black bag tucked under her arm. Leaning over the desk, she set down the information as dictated by Miss Taggart. The handwriting was childishly rouniJ but the letters were formed swiftly and surely. "Mr. Selwyn Marsh. Fair Acres. Near Brookville." Brookville, it appeared, was 20 miles or thereabouts from the city. Commuting service was frequent and Miss Dahl should have little trouble in finding the place. Miss Taggart became rather more reassured over her unprofessional procedure with this intimate nearness to her caller. "Her neck's clean and she smells good," was the older woman's mental comment. "I shall see Mr. Marsh today," Miss Dahl said smilingly. "If I am fortunate enough to procure the position, I will be very glad to pay. . . whatever your fee is." "We are not sending you out there," Miss Taggart reminded sharply. Then she added, in more mollified tones: "But I would be interested, naturally, in knowing what success you have. And if you like the place." "I shall let you know. Thank you and goodby." Tbora Dahl nodded deferentially and started once more to the door, stepping aside as she opened it to avoid colliding with a small angular woman who was jerking off her hat as she entered.' The newcomer was Dora Bond, assistant to Miss Taggart. "Who was that party?" she demanded in a guarded voice, her bobbed black head indicating the departing Thora. Miss Taggart wag staring thoughtfully at the closed door. "Oh, that? A school teacher who takes a bath every day. She wants to be a "hired girl' and she has . . . no character." "What!" "And so," Miss Taggart pursued evenly, "I gave her Selwyn Marsh's address." "Huh." Miss Bond leaned nearer a mirror that hung beside the water cooler. She pursed her scarlet lips and studied their reflection critically, then inquired: "Did you tell her what that last woman said when she came back?" "I didn't send her as an applicant. So I told her nothing. Well . . . almost nothing." "And that," Sara Bond remarked judicially over her shoulder, "is what is known as an easy out." In the meantime, tie object of the agency's courtesy was making her way directly to the station. Thora Dahl learned, that a train for Brookville was scheduled to depart within 20 minutes and, what was of greater importance, the fare was 58 cents. There were none too many 58 cents remaining in the black handbag. Fortunately, her room rent was paid for the balance of the week. And here was a chance of obtaining Business Notes Revenue freight carloadings declined again last week for the second consecutive time as severe weather restricted activity. Figures for 21 major railroad systems point to a decrease of more than 37,000 cars from the loading total for the previous week or an indicated aggregate of around 574,000 cars. The estimated total for tbe week ended Jan. 25 compares with 555,768 cars loaded in the comparable 1935 week and marks the smallest year-to-year gain since the week ended Sept. 28, last, when loadings were severely depressed by a short-lived coal strike. With that exception the favorable margin indicated for the past week was the narrowest since mid-August. WESTINOHOUSE OK ss basis Westinghouse Electric and Manutacturi.«s company common stock, which was returned to the dividend paying list last August after a three year lapse, was placed on the equivalent of a 53 a share annual basis Wednesday with the declaration of a dividend of 75 cents a share. Fifty cents had been paid in each of the two preceding quarters. Directors also votes regular quarterly disbursement of 87H cents a share f, the preferred. Anaconda Wire and Cable company resumed payments on the capital stock after a lapse of more than four years. Directors voted a distribution of 25 cents a share, the same as was made in August, 1931, before dividends wero passed. The company is controlled by Anaconda copper Mining company. Scotten Dillon company directors voted a payment of 50 cents a share OD the common, the same as voted a year ago. Dividend of 30 cents a share were paid in each of the three intervening quarters. KKI'CBUC TO MAKE ADDITIONS Republic Steel corporation Wednesday announced plans for the expenditure of nearly 51,200,000 for improvements and additions in Its plants in various cities, the major portion of the appropriation to be used in the Youngstown district. One of the principal projects is that relating to a change in the corporation's three electric welding mills at Lansingville. The middle sized pipe mill in this group was improved last year at a cost of S750.000. and the change, which involved alteration in the shaping rolls and equipment, was found successful that it wilj be applied to the larger mill. In Warren, the capacity of the annealing and tin house is to be increased because of the addition of a new fo-jr-hlch mill las: year, making strip for tin plate. The company "likewise improved the hand mills with three hlch break-down mills and automatic f o r t u n e antl catching devices. These improvtmflitp. nnw n p a r i n g completion, increased the- hl.trfc plMf fra^acitj- of ilie plan! Jinrl s r l d i l i o n n l tinning equipment is to be installed at the cost of $250.00" a position at last. Not a very encouraging chance . . . but there was no good in worrying about that. Not yet. Conjectures over the forthcoming adventure were uppermost in Thora Dahl's mind as she relaxed in the coach seat and gazed thoughtfully through the window. It was an adventure. Things were becoming rather desperate. Under way now. Gliding past grimy factories and warehouses, clanking over switches. AH the drab aspects of a city's back yard, the last mile of every incoming trunk line. Open spaces, as the train gathered speed. Flashes of sunlight through the car windows. Then the buildings retreated to more discreet distances from the tracks. Thora raised her window to let the warm air beat against her face. Pleasant to see green open spaces after long weeks among brick walls. She found herself wishing it were farther t o o . . . Brookville. Fair Acres. Both were pretty names . . . restful. But this Mr. Marsh didn't sound so very encouraging. Thora believed she understood why that woman at the agency had been reticent, but she had said enough about Mr. Marsh to arouse some uneasiness in the girl's mind. An elderly man, of course. Probably in ill health. It was plain that he was hard to get along with. Maybe she could stay long enough to draw a week's wages . . . you'd think she had a chance The more she thought of it, however, Thora found herself becoming curiously unafraid of the prospect. If Selwyn Marsh were more harsh and domineering than old Hjalmar Dahl, well . . . that wasn't likely. Thora had put up with her father's unending discipline said exactions for more than 20 years. And her mother had endured them much longer. But Mary Dahl, submissive though she was for the most part, had her moments of rebellion. That was why Thora had gone through high school and had two years at State Normal. Moody Hjalmar never quite forgave his wife that her one excursion into motherhood had not produced a son to inherit the big wheat farm and contribute a greater share to its labor in the meantime. Thora had subscribed to her father's native code to the extent of spending most of her youthful spare time in the 'fields and barns. At 16, she bad the flat body of a boy with hard muscles that could, and did do a man's work. It was only in these last few years that her form had taken on the soft contours of young womanhood. Today's ride to Brookville was not far from an end when the traveler drew back from her open window with an exclamation of pain. A cinder had implanted itself in her left eye. Hurriedly she went through all the maneuvers calculated to remove the irritation, exploring for it with the corner of her handkerchief, pulling at her eyelid, winking rapidly . . . only to find that painful scratching of the eyeball persisting. She even rubbed the right eye vigorously. Someone had told her that method would bring relief, start tears flowing and wash out the obstruction. Tears came, but no cinder. 'Brookville!" On the heels of that shout, the train began grinding to a halt. (TO BE CONTINUED) 2 Trees at Oskaloosa Show Changing Fortunes U. S. Political Parties OSKALOOSA, Jan. 30. --There's a reason Mr. and Mrs. Leroy Corlett named the trees they set out at the entrance of their driveway "Harding" and "Wilson." Mr. Corlett, an attorney, is an ardent republican. Mrs. Corlett is an equally ardent democrat. They planted the trees the da_y Harding was inauguratecl as president, named them, little dreamed those trees would become political oracles to Mahaska county democrats with superstitious bents. But They Have. For several years "Wilson" lagged while "Harding" flourished. By the end of the Coolidge administration, the "Wilson" tree was barely alive. But when Al Smith took the leadership of the democrats in 1928, the "Wilson" tree commenced to grow. By 1932 when Roosevelt became the democratic candidate, it was shooting skyward. The "Harding" tree's growth meantime slowed down. Last fall the 'Wilson" tree still was outgaining the "Harding" tree. He Has Explanation. "Doesn't mean a thing," says Corlett. "Wihxm's roots were just cut too short in transplanting and it took a little while for the tree to get stalled. That's all." "Ah. but it does," twits Mrs. Corlett. "If that were all, why is your Harding tree lagging?" To which Corlett replies: "You just wait until the next election." Garner Group Plans to Help Starving Birds GARNER, Jan. 30.--Forty-eight local sportsmen and farmers in the feeding of pheasants. These birds have died in large numbers from exposure since a week ago. R. E. Nesbit, local cafe owner; Art Schultz, rural mail carrier, and Dave Smith, farmer, drove 35 miles Wednesday to scatter feed to starving birds. 'They counted as many as 50 in a group that approached eagerly as feed was distributed. It is said that previously quite a number of pheasants had been shot as they were seeking shelter. The group of men interested in protecting the birds will arrest anyone who is killing them. NEW STANDARD FOR GRINNELL Former Plan of Major and Minor System Dropped in Change. GRINNELL, Jan. 30. VP--Grinnell college, long: known as the "Harvard of the midwest," has adopted a new standard of graduation requirements that will abolish the former system of a major and minor study. The change in curriculum becomes effective with the present freshman class. It was devised by the faculty committee on educational policies and approved by faculty vote. "The new system," the faculty committee stated, "is designed to ive a more rounded education and eliminate the present tendency to concentrate In certain fields to the virtually exclusion of all other fields of education." In 7 large Divisions. The entire college curriculum hag been divided into seven large divisions and a student will be required to take his choice among- several subjects in the different divisions. Every student must take a year's work in freshman English, orientation and a foreign language. Orientation previously has been a one-semester course. The foreign lanuage requirement may be eliminated if the student has had two years of foreign language in high school. Both men and women will be required to take three years of physical education. Will Distribute Study. During the first two years, the student also will be required to distribute study in such a manner as to complete a full year's work in at least one subject in six of the seven divisions of the curriculum. The former system of requiring 24 hours work in a major field and 16 hours in a minor has been abolished. Instead each student will complete from 40 to 52 hours in a field to be known as his "field of concentration." Plymouth Conservation Group Meets; Plans to Feed Pheasants Made PLYMOUTH, Jan. 30.--"The Field and Stream club," local sportsman's organization, held the annual meeting and re-elected the old officers: M. A. Hanson, president; Ivan Oantz, vice president; C. A. Mols- ierry, secretary; G. A. Reynolds. ;reasurer; Fay Cooper, F. H. Graves, J. A. Sutton, Paul Chehock and John Brower, re-elected directors. The local club has been active in sponsoring the dam now. under construction by workmen of the board of conservation from the transient camp at Mason City. Steps were taken to supply feed for the game birds of this area which have suffered severely from the extreme cold weather and deep snow. The club asked the co-operation of all who are interested in the preservation of the wild life in carrying out this project and contribution of feed or other help will be gratefully received.
