SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 13 · 1936 RECOVERY STAGED BY SWINE MARKET PRICES ADVANCE 10 T015 CENTS Top Gets Back Up to Within 5 Cents of $11 Mark at Chicago. C H I C A G O , UP) -- Hog prices staged a pronounced recovery Thursday from Wednesday's extreme slump despite the heaviest run in two weeks. The market was 15 to 25 cents higher than Wednesday's average and the top got back to within 5 cents of the $11 mark. Unabated snowfall did not halt the progress made in clearing transportation facilities as weather in the livestock production area moderated Hog receipts here totaled 18,000 and 5,000 of these were packer owned. The swine market derived some of its strength from reports of improvement in the movement of fresh pork. Prices for wholesale cuts were steady at around the highest level since October. The cattle trade, on the other hand, had a basically weak undertone largely because the dressed beef market continued to be sluggish Due to the storm, however, fed steers and yearlings were steady to strong with better grade weighty kinds slightly higher to shippers on a forced market. All low priced cattle got good action and the best fed steers sold around $11. The bulk of fat lambs selling early got fully steady to strong prices with a few sales 10 to 15 cents higher.

Steels, Utilities, Rails and Indus- ;rial specialties maintained most of the gains registered in an early rush of trading which carried many of ie better known equities fractions o around 2 points higher. Outstanding at better prices were American Telephone, Southern Pacific, Delaware and Hudson, South- em Railroad Preferred, Douglas Aircraft, American Chain, General Electric and Johns-Manville. Smaller fractions were added by U. S. Steel, Bethlehem, Public Serv- ce of New Jersey, Santa Fe, Anaconda, and Standard Oil of California. On the' other hand, minor recessions occurred in Goodyear, iennecott and International Nickel. The late tone was fairly firm. Transfers approximated 2,600,000 shares. The dollar was strong in foreign exchanges, cotton was mixed and jrains narrowly better. The bond narket was steady. Warnings that the "Bootblack Section" of the market--meaning many of those stocks selling under i5 or $10 a share--has been given a leavy play in recent weeks had ittle significance today when the ow priced shares did little.

Leibowitz, New York criminal lawyer said Wednesday lie had agreed to enter the Hauptmann case after a conference with Mrs. Richard Brunc Hauptmann 'If Hauptmann would tell the truth." At the conclusion of an hour ant a half conference with the attorney in his office, Mrs. Hauptmann left for the Trenton state prison where her husband is confined in the death house, awaiting execution for the slaying of the Lindbergh baby. ' Leibowitz indicated he would visit Hauptmann there Thursday. The attorney said he was convinced that the entire story of the crime had not been told and terme( "ridiculous" the assumption that only one man was involved. He criticized both the defense and prosecution in Hauptmann's trial at Flemington, N. J., and added that only one man could save Hauptmann from the electric chair and that is Hauptmann himself. Halt Enthusiasm Most Sections. in IEAD THIS FIBST: Thora Dahl, who has left her home .1 Minnesota a.tid journeyed cast, jbtalns a position as housekeeper or an eccentric gentleman named Sehvyii Marsh who lives in suburban New'York. Thora meets Sherman Gordon. » friend of Maish and his laughter, Wilroa, who is away. NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY) CHAPTER 14 It was very nearly 3 o'clock when Thora heard "Marsh's mount clatter- ng up the driveway. She waited for what she considered might be a suitable interval, then presented herself and her papers at the library door. Marsh gave her offerings a brief ·lance, tossed them aside. "I dare say they're all right. I'll et you know. Here . . . " He indicated a shiny portable typewriter on the end of the long table. "Pull up a chair and show me how to work that thing, will you? Here's some paper." He dragged his own chair close to the machine. Thora experimented with the various gadgets for a moment, then inserted a sheet of paper . . . paused 'or further directions. "Well, -write something! I want to see what it does." "What shall I write?" "Anything!" He threw himself back, in his chair petulantly. Thora. thought for a moment. Her eyes lighted mischievously, but there was no sign of a smile on her lips as she poised her fingers over the ceys for an instant, then began Curb Market NEW YORK, f.^P. 1 --Specialties and metals ed the curb market in a modest recovery move Thursday, Gains ranged from small fractions to more than a point and all divisions of the 1st participated except utilities, which were ncllned to be hesitant Among issues displaying firmness were Aluminum company, Great Atlantic and Pacific. American Meter, Newmont Mining. Schiff company, and Standard Seal and Cap. Fractional gains included Niagara Hudson Power and Sherwln Williams. » Utility stocks holding about unchanged to shade lower included American Gas, Cities service and Electric Bond and Share. Oil shares did little either -way. Bond Mcrket NEW YORK, U. S. treasury issues , . . pushed ahead Thursday for fractional gains a the bond Market. Most corporate obligations were In good demand. Foreign toans were mixed. Best advances In the U. E. government list were turned in by treasury 3%'s and the ^%'s of 1943. Somewhat less aggressive on -he forward thrust were treasury 2%'s and .ho 2^'s, Home Owners Loan 3's bad a slight fraction chipped away. Others in the government-guaranteed sector were quiet. The momentum of the government division vas accompanied by an upturn in such low- ·ield corporate Hens as Columbia Gas and Electric 5's, Goodyear 5's, North American 's, Toungstown Sheet and Tube 5*s, and Northern Pacific 4'a. Although there was a good call for medium and low priced rails, demand was leas uniform than in recent sessions.

I'll read it to you." Before an hovw was finished, Thora Dahl realized that she had let herself in for something of a task. Marsh not only had some difficulty in deciphering his own notes, but changed his mind a dozen times as to the manner of setting them down. The end of the table was littered with his typist's half-completed efforts. Her employer studied each one, running his fingers through his hair and muttering over defects and desired changes. Shadows were lengthening in the paneled room before the first sheet was done to the author's satisfaction. It was largely a matter of tabulation, a genealogical chart. "Don't take it out of the machine," Marsh ordered. "I want to look at something." He left his seat and leaned down to read over Thora's shoulder. He was mumbling over the contents of the sheet, his face almost touching Thora's check. She moved a trifle as she felt his hair brush against her face. A slight sound caused her to look up quickly. "Well!" said a cool young voice from the doorway. "And greetings . . . everybody." (TO BE CONTINUED) lady Lightning* Sets New Marks in Two Sections of National Women's Contest ST.

"1 couldn't do that in 10 years- Let's see what it looks like." Without a word, Thora handed lim the paper. She saw his brows [raw down into a puzzled scowl as IB read. It was a brief note. "Dear Mr. Marsh: Please accept my thanks for the riding things I found in my wardrobe. They fit perfectly. Tours truly, THORA DAHL." "What's that?" he demanded uncertainly. He did not look up, but .ppeared to b e studying the typewritten lines. "I suppose Pat must have told you .hat I borrowed a pair of his over- ais when I went riding the other day." 'Oh, yes ... Yes! You see, we had a guest here last summer. Wilma got her those things and she never used them. I happened lo remember them. This girl was . . . about your size. I thought, maybe, you could use them and had one of ie maids put them where you could :ind them. . . " "I wondered." Marsh still evaded Thora's frank gaze. It was- not as easy as he had anticipated. And he thought he had been rather clever about it, making a quick trip to the housekeeper's room when he knew that she was in the kitchen with Katie. 'It was very kind of you," Thora persisted. "Oh, titat's all right." Marsh met her eyes now, and was forced to smile. A trifle sheepishly. "Overalls are comfortable enough, I gtJess, but not quite . . . the.thing. Pat tells me you gave Ginger a try-out. Like him?" 'He's wonderful!" The blue -eyes were shining. Too tricky for my old bones. I want a steadier mount. It's a wonder he didn't spill you." "He liked me." "So I'm told. And where did you learn to ride?" "I've always ridden. My father liked horses and . . . Well, we didn'l have any fine saddle horses like yours. But I used to practice on the colts." Marsh was studying the typewritten note again. "Dahl . . -" he said, under his breath. "Didn't you tell me that is a Norwegian name?" "Yes, sir, it is." "Donahue insists that you're f copatiiot of his. He says thai you're a little too ... quick to be anything but Irish. You've got m( guessing, too." "He's right," Thora said hesi tatingly. "My father is Norwegian I usually tell people that my mother is English. She was born in Belfast." "Are you ashamed of that?" "Of course not!" Thora exclaime impetuously. Then she explained in a more composed fashion. "It's rather unusual for a Norwegian to marry outside of his own national ity-. in our part of the country at all events. If I told people tha my father married an Irish woman they . . . they'd think I was making it up. It doesn't sound very plaus ible." "Umph, I believe you. I've shared the usual impression that the Eng lish don't have a keen sense ot hu mor. I supposed the same thing wer.t for the Scandinavians." As he had betrayed too much interes in the matter, Marsh changed the subject with his usual abruptness "That type looks good. Much better than my scrawl." "It's a nice machine." "Tell you what we'll do. Miss Dahl Tve a few notes here that I'd like put down . . . just to get an idea what they look like "I will write them for you, if you think that I can." "That's what I thought. I don' know exactly how I want them ar ranged . . . yet. We'll work some thing out. If you'll make me a pat tern to start with. Maybe T can wrangle out the rest by myself After you show me how to manipu late the machine." "Let me have them.''
