, EIGHTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 27 ·§ 1936 HOG AND CATTLE MARTS STRONGER SMALL SUPPLIES - IMPROVE TRADE Top for Hogs Gets Back to $10.50 on Receipts of 8,000 Head. CHICAGO, G3V-Hogrs and cattle markets developed strength Thursday as supplies were reduced, '- With packers seeking to stimulate consumer meat demand by cutting wholesale quotations and "receipts holding within modest fig- ·ures, the livestock trade has been - subjected to mixed influences so far this week. ~\ Thursday the scarcity of supplies "dominated the trade and cattle and "hogs were around 25 cents higher. "Only 8,000 fresh swine were re- 'ceived while the cattle run was only 4,000. ' The hog top got back to $10.50, 'with the bulk of medium weights going for 5-10.20 to 510.40. Sows ^Syere 10 to 15 cents higher. "'" Steers sold 50 to 75 cents above 'the low point in the past year, established on Monday. There was ' Tittle beef available but shippers paid up to $11 in early rounds for "best weighty bullocks while local "buyers cleaned up the light steer and she stock run. Fat lambs were weak to 25 cents lower. All classes of wholesale meats are selling at the low point of the year. 'Packers quotations have declined around a cent a pound recently on .beef, veal and lamb cuts and fresh pork has dropped to the lowest point since fall.

WHEAT MARKET UNEVEN AFFAIR Higher Prices on May But · Lower on New Months Form Rule. CHICAGO, (J)--Higher prices on May wheat but lower on new crop months, July and September, form- iled the rule in late dealings Thursday. A feature was purchases of Maj wheat against sales of deferred months. The fact that low temperatures were less severe today than many traders had expected and that there was a letup in dust storms was a basis for selling of July and September.

Lamson Brothers Market Letter 11ABKET REVIEW. CHICAGO--Thursday Wheat--There was moderate strength in the wheat market this morning but resting orders in the hands of commission houses to sell wheat were in rath-r good volume and prices reacted quickly from opening high quotations. Later commission houses again bought wheat and together -with local short covering occasional periods of strength materialized. Winnipeg was draggy most of the session. There were no indications of any improved export business but the small grain shipments from Russia each week with the expectations of small shipments from the Argentine helped stimulate some firmness in Liverpool. Corn--The corn market did not advance much with the early strength tn wheat. 3n fact, commission houses and traders generally were moderate sellers. Broomhall agent in the Argentine said that the corn crop this years might furnish an exportable surplus of around 550,000,000, This would compare with about "450.000,000 exportable surplus last year. A leading industry after buying a fair number of cars withdrew from the market but receipts were fairly well cleaned up at the close. NEW 10RK SL'GAB.

STOCKS MOVE UP IN QUIET TRADING Broadest Advance Appears in Industrial Specialties, Rails and Metals. NEW YORK, #--Steady progress toward higher prices marked quiet trading Thursday in the stock market. The broadest advance appeared in rails, metals and numerous industrial specialties, but the steels, utilities, oils, motors and merchandising issues did not lag far behind the rising leaders. Gains were major fractions to around 3 points. U. S. Steel was up nearly 3, Allied Chemical more than four, and around 2 each were Great Northem preferred, New York Central, Delaware and Hudson, Chrysler, Anaconda, St. Joseph Lead and Western Union. National Lead advanced SB 1 ,-!. Smaller increases were scored by Bethlehem Steel, Santa Fe, Northern Pacific, General Motors. Johns- Manville, Sears, Montgomery Ward, Standard of N. J., and California, and Consolidated Gas. The late tone was firm, and transactions approximated 2,200,000 shares. Bonds were steady to slightly higher with Japanese obligations lower. Cotton and grains were mixed. Trading in Bethlehem of N. J., and Delaware was halted at the opening about an hour while price differences were adjusted. The old New Jersey preferred and common were more than a point higher, and the new 7 per cent and 5 per cent preferred sold in line. Better corporate reports and announcements in Washington on taxation and treasury financing cleared many topics which traders for days have put in the question column. Curb Market Bond Market NEW YORK, UV-Moderate -recoveries pre- ominated in the corporate bond list Thursay, but U. S. coveraments were spotty and apanese obligations continued to reflect ervousness over ihe political upheaval in ·okio. Ot interest fo the market was the nn- ouncement that the Jones and Laughlin Step) orporation had applied to the SEC lor permission t» issue 540,000,000 in first mortgage bonds. More than 530,000,000 of this amount vould be used to modernize and expand plant acilities. It was noted that this was the argest call for new capital since the passage of the securities act. The statement of Secretary Morgcnthau hat March 15 financing would involve some SI.250,000,000 of which SSOO.tfOQ.OOO would be 'new money" for use in the soldiers' bonus, held the attention or banking quarters. The remainder would be for the redemption of reasury bills maturing Hatch 16.

Oc- 21^c; fresh graded flrpts, February CHAPTER 26 THE DAY'S next incident was marked by a hearty atlack on the front door knocker, a half hour later. Thora, who was in the drawing room at the moment, stepped across the hall to answer it, sending a nod and smije to Jane who came hurrying from the dining room. The caller proved to be none other than Sherman Gordon. "Well, we meet again," was his smiling greeting. "Please note, Miss Thora Dahl, lhat I'm making a proper enlrance this lime." "Will you come in?" "I had something of the sort in mind," he admitted. "And now you can't keep me out. Is Wilma at home?" "Yea, she is, Mr. Gordon. But I believe that she is lying down just now . . . a headache." Thora supplied that sympathetic subterfuge almost without thinking. She realized that Wilma's face still bore the marks of protracted tears; she would not wish to see anyone. Thora. also found herself speculating about Mr. Gordon. Did he know atiout Mr. Babbas? It was not likely. 'Sherman stood looking down al her, His hands thrust in his pockets, the familiar smile quirking the corners of his mouth. "Something tells me the battle has been fought," he drawled. "Do you happen to know what the casualties were? Or who won?" "I'm afraid that I don't understand." "No? Well, it's all in the family. Little Wilma succumbed to the charms of some gallant across the pond and has been afraid to break the news to old Selwyn. She sobbed out the sad story on my shoulder the olher aflernoon. Had Ihe nerve to suggest that I act as ambassador to this Ali Babba, or whatever his name is. I told her there was nothing doing . . . not with her dad in the throes of patriol ancestors. She was planning to break the news to him today, so I thought I'd stroll by and check up on the news." Thora wondered involuntarily if Mr. Gordon was as indifferent to Wilma's engagement as he seemed. Perhaps he was assuming this pose to hide his real feelings. "Mr. Babbas is expected here . . . as a guest,' 1 was her official comment. "Yes? Well, in that case I've got quite a 3"ob ahead of me, I fancy. For Wilma's sake, I don't mind taking this Ali Babba under my wing, but . . ." The first shade oj gravity touched Sherman Gordon's tones. 'But, if he turns out to be one of the Forty Thieves . . . God help him!" * * * Life seemed to have entered into a new phase, Thora Dahl thought, as she went about her duties the next day. The change had come about so suddenly. Merely a few hours ago, the future had loomed up like some blank wall. Now, she felt established once more. There was a litlle glow of satisfaction when she recalled what had happened. Mr. MaHh really wanted her lo stay at Fair Acres. She was glad now that she had told him her story. Perhaps she had been unduly sensitive . . . after all, she had nothing to he ashamed of. It was only her father's stubborn ideas of righteousness that had sent her adrift, prevented her from taking up the old life that belonged to her. But she felt thai, now, she had emerged from under a cloud of some sort and could look the world squarely in the face. Ancl Wilma Marsh no longer was unfriendly. The girl had come lo her lillle silling room Ihe evening before of her own accord. There had been nothing effusive about Wilma, but she had been frank and unreserved. Mr. Babbas would arrive the next day but one, reaching Fair Acres in lime for dinnei'. There were various arrangemenls lo make. Bui Wilma showed no inclination lo be dictatorial; it merely was a household conference. While Thora was thinking these things over, as she went about her duties, a ringing o f . the telephone sent her into the front hall to answer the summons. She recognized the voice at once. 'Please ask Miss Marsh to come to the telephone," the crisp tones ordered. "Just a moment, Mrs. Steele," Thora replied. "Miss Marsh is upstairs. I will call her to Ihe exlen- sion." A momenl later, she heard Wilma's voice coming in on the line and she replaced the receiver. A lillle later, Wilma came down the stairs with her hat on. "If father asks for me," she volunteered, "will you please tell him that I have gone over to Aunt Dorothy's for a little while. I'm going to ask Ted to drive me." Thora nodded, wondering to herself why Wilma elected to make the short trip by car. She hejself would have preferred to walk across the fields on such a beautiful day. From the open door she watched Wiima enter the roadster, with a good- natured greeting to the boy. "How have you been making out, Ted?" Wilma inquired, as the machine started down the driveway. "Oh, I'm fine." "You look it." The girl's dark eyes lighted with amusement. "How do You like our good looking housekeeper ?" "She's a peach!'' Ted realized that he had allowed his enthusiasm to get the better of him. He blushed under his freckles. "Well!" Wilraa exclaimed banter- ng. "So that's it. I heard that you were smitlen there. Nellie told me. The poor girl is crushed. You shouldn't be so cruel, Ted, really." "Aw . . . she's crazy," young Mr. arnor muttered, the flush in his cheeks deepening. "You don't want j to pay any attention to her. Miss Wilraa. "I don't know . . ." his mistress said doubtfully. "You have a way with women. Well, I'm not sure I blame you." To Ted's great relief, she changed the subject. "1 shan't be in Mrs. Steele's very long. I want you to wait." "Yes, ma'am, I'll wait." As the car slowed to a stop before the door of the tall white house, its owner came hurrying down the steps. "Wilma, darling! It was good of you lo come over so quickly." She held up her cheek for her visitor to kiss. Wilma walked directly oul to a hall sun parlor at Ihe end of Ihe hall and dropped into one of the chintz-covered chairs. She wept her hat from her head with a careless motion, took a cigaret from her bag and lighted it. "Well?" she inquired. "What is all the excitement about?" "Why, I wanted to have a little talk with you, darling . . . alone," Mrs Steele began, drawing a small chair close to her caller's. "Okay." Wilma blew a thread of smoke into the air and watched it through her half-closed eyes. "I have something to tell you, too. But you start in." (TO BE CONTINUED) Dr. George W. Crile Says That All Life Is Electrical Event NEW YORK, JP--Dr. George W. Crile, noted Cleveland surgeon, presented his own answers to the questions of life and death that have engrossed him for a half a century Thursday and explained that all life is an electrical event in nature. In his book, "The Phenomena of Life," published today. Dr. CrUe advances the theory that all living cells are electric cells which "die" when physical or emotional shock destroys Iheir ability to hold or transfer energy. Oelwein Youth, Hero in Saving Life. Glad Fuss No Longer Made OELWEIN, (JJ--A year ago, Clarence Steffen, then 13, darted up the railroad right-of-way here, snatched Rose Marie Boyle, 6, from death beneath an oncoming freight :rain and met the nalion's praise with: "Aw, gee. It wasn't anything." He slill feels very much Ihe same way aboul it. "I'm glad," he said, "that people have forgollen about it and quit making such a fuss." Hailed as Hero. For days last spring Clarence was hailed a hero. The Chamber of Commerce banqueted him. Residents jave him a bicycle, more than ?100 ,n money, a Boy Scout membership and uniform. The state legislature officially commended his bravery. Letters and telegrams of praise poured in. Whether or not Clarence then ew that fame is fleeting, he knows it now. Of course Clarence's mother still s the scrapbook of clippings and .etlers she collected. And Clarence las his bicycle, a litlie money in the bank, the Boy Scout membership. Would Like Scholarship. But the Steff en's'still live in the same little house and times are just as hard as ever for them. H the Carnegie bravery medal award committee doesn't forget, that's all Clarence hopes. "Saving Rose Marie wasn't much." he said, "and I don't care a lot whelher I gel Ihe Carnegie medal. But I would like to have the scholarship that goes with the medal so I can attend college when I finish high school." Former lowan Planning to Fly T i b e t ' s Gold for Outside Markets HUMBOLDT, (UP)--Gordon B. Enders, formerly of Rolfe, Iowa, soon will be flying sacred gold out of mysterious Tibet, if his present plans materialize.

DBS MOINES, W)--Negotiations for "friendly" delegates in behall o£ twc presidential candidates went ahaad Tuesday in preparations for Friday's state republican convention here. Possible Iowa support for Senator L. J. Dickinson of Iowa or Gov. Alf Landon of Kansas was discussed in informal gatherings today but political observers considered it likely the state convention will net pledge the delegates it selects to attend the national convention. Some of the 1,700 delegates who will attend the state convenion are under instructions to work for Dickinson, who reportedly is not seeking- an instructed delegation. Friends of the Kansas governor indicated they will seek second choice strength rather than a pledged delegation Clyde Miller Topeka, Kans., stock- mand and land supporter who arrived here Thursday, said he will be a "friendly observer" at the Iowa State convention. "We are hopeful that if Governor Landon shows strength at the republican national convention not only the Iowa delegation but Senator Dickinson himself could support Landon," he explained. "And if it should be Senator Dickinson who shows strength I am sure that Kansas could fie for him." Caucuses of delegates from the nine Iowa 'congressional districts will open activities Friday. Each caucus will select two delegates to the national convention. The state convention, meeting at 11 a. m. in the Coliseum, will select four delegates-at-large. The keynote speech of J. 0. Shaft, Camanche farmer, was to be the principal feature of the morning event. The afternoon session will adopt resolutions and hear an address by Robert G. Simmons of Lincoln, Nebr., former Nebraska congressman. Movie Makers Picture Kimberley Rush in GB Cinema Called 'Rhodes' NEW YORK, (UP)--Movie makers have attempted to reconstruct the "drama of diamonds" that was enacted 60 years ago in Kimberley, South Africa. Today Kimberiey is a ghost town, but in the 1870's it was the teeming set for a colorful episode in history. The most vivid character was Cecil John Rhodes, i 'ounder of the Rhodes scholarship'crust. His name was given to the GB production, "Rhodes," starring Walter Huston Kirnberly in the days when Rhodes first went to Africa to seek health and fortune was a border town on the fringe of civilization. It teemed with activities of desperadoes and derelicts. Its gambling- dens and dance halls were like those in America during the gold rush days. The film was made in the veldt and producers pledged themselves to make it faithful to history. Toronto U. Students Cast Votes for Type of Girl Preferred TORONTO, Ont, (JPI--University of Toronto students like "slinky" girls best. Answering a magazine questionnaire on the type girl they preferred, the students placed "slinky" girls first, "romantic" girls second, "sophisticated" girls third, and "fluffy" maidens at the bottom. Citing the qualities they admired most in a girl, they placed vitality first, neatness second, beauty third distinction fourth, style fifth, sweetness sixth, and sex appeal seventh. The students denounced, by a large majority, dresses cut low in the front, bad perfume, hair ornaments, and brilliantly tinted nails. Singing Mouse Keeps Man, Wife Up at Night TRURO, N. S., (UP)--Jim Creelman says there is a mouse at large in his home which can sing and detect poison. The mouse kept Creelman and his wife up one night by warbling.
