Keifers were fully steady. Fat 2ambs recovered slightly and prices ruled steady to strong with .-spots 10 to 15 cents higher. Sellers ^·demanded a sharp advance but ""Backers resisted the upturn. ^j[ Demand for feeder cattle wgtrong- but not many such steers MJhave been coming into the market. -Feeders quotable at $6 to 58 are "Ruling 50 to 75 cents higher than 3he recent low level during the cold ·.weather.

CHICAGO--For Thursday: Wheat--As the wheat market opened :hls morninp, firmness was apparent in the July future as most of the commission house buying was in July. The lack of demand for May caused local traders, who had the popular spread position, long May and short July, to begin to backspread and their operations caused the lie difference Wednesday to quickly narrow to about lOc. The Oklahoma crop report said that wheat had made fair progress and that the crop was in fair to good condition. Winnipeg was firm most of the day although price changes were small. Export sales in all positions were yiv- en at about 400,000 bushels some of which were out of Vancouver. The action of May- July wheat spread today has naturally installed a little doubt in the minds of many AS la just what the comparative trend of these futures wiil be. Corn--The corn market was rather quiet, AcliinR oy commission houses was of small proportion* and was readily absorbed by local traders. A r a t h f r coj f ] wavr is predicted fr I'moM all of t h * rom lp!t w i t h i n ihfi n ^ x t 21 hour,'. Brrromhali says t h a t , ih** corn crr-r in Argentine is about two weeks late.

NEW YORK, UPt~ Buying in Thursday's stock market was confined largely to the rail, farm implement, merchandise and specialty issues. Although the activity was relatively small, gains of 1 to around 3 points were shown by many of the favorites as the session approached the final hour. Noteworthy advanced were scored by Union Pacific, Santa Fe, Delaware Hudson, Auburn, American 'an, du Pont, Case, International Harvester. Deere, American Chain, Murray Corp.. Sears Roebuck, Montgomery Ward and Certain- Teed. Tobaccos were heavy and some of :he steels and utilities were a trifle lower. The late tone was firm. Transfers approximated 2,600,000 shares. U. S. government securities and rail bonds edged higher. Commodities were irregular, but quiet. The dollar was steady in foreign exchange centers. Wall Street opinion on the tax question was still divided and some commission house customers were said to have adjourned to the side- ines pending final congressional ac- .ion on the president's revenue pro- Curb Market NEW YORK, (,D--Striking gains in spe- ia'tics and some of the metal shares gave ie curb market a steady to firm appearance Thursday. Dow Chemical bounded up 9 points to 121 i a small turnover.

Bond Market CHAPTER 32 Sherman Gordon turned swiftly on Selwyn Marsh. ."I do sound like a. fool, no doubt. Falling head over heels in love with a girl at first sight, a girl I don't know the first thing about. And don't want to. Why, Mrs. Steele cornered me one day to tell me . . . Well, she intimated that there must be something funny about Thora . .. taking- a job here, and all that. How anybody could look into that girl's eyes and not know . . . " "A woman's intuition works overtime, once it gets going," Marsh moralized. "You're right about Miss Dahl, Sherm. I can . 1 He caught himself up sharply, as if he had said more than he intended. "Of course I am," Gordon said quietly. "I've an idea that you know more about her than anybody else. And I wouldn't ask you a thing. I don't have to. Just the same, I'm giving you notice. If I can win that girl, I'm going to. She's the only one who can stop me." To his surprise, there was no sarcastic rejoinder. Selwyn took his pipe from his lips and studied it thoughtfully. When he spoke, it was in an almost-subdued voice. "Go ahead, son. I'm not stopping you. Or helping you, either." "Thanks, Selwyn." Gordon gave a relieved smile. "I didn't want you to doubt my intentions. Whatever anybody else around here thinks doesn't bother me. If Thora lodges any complaints, you'll know what it's all about." "Yes, I'll know." "Well . . . I'll toddle on. I'll be NEW YORK. V.P.'--Medium and low priced ail loads shifted forward for moderate gains ti the bond "market Thursday. Other corpor- te Hens were mixed. U. S. government obli- ations were steady. Banking circles attributed the higher prices or the medium and low priced rail issues the effect on sentiment .of the brisk ad ances in various carrier equities. Gains in the bond sector stood at fractions ate in the morning. Baltimore and Ohio 4- _ St. Paul 5s, Northwestern i=is and Erie 5s vere prominent on the advance. Steadiness in the government list was cred' ted to the heavy oversubscriptions for the ew treasury bonds and notes. Gainers in the reasury sector included the 3Us of 1941 and he 2TsS. The spectacle of higher prices for governments was in turn, counted a factor in the emand for low yield corporate loans which oosted them fractions to around a point. ainers included Armour and company 4 Vis. oodyear 5s. Great Northern -U»s and Union acific 4s. Italian 7s were up a liitle. white olhcrs in ie foreign group, including Japanese, were uted. Produce MASON CITY--For Thursday Cash Qnotaiions by E. G.

Marsh asked sharply. "Why, I was showing him through the old gentleman's gun room one day . . . regular arsenal, yot) know. There was an automatic in the bunch, German make, I think. Anyway, it's one dad lugged home on his last trip across. Our friend was quite k«en about it ... seemed to snow it was something new. First :ime I had seen him really enthused, so I dug up some cartridges and suggested we go out behind the barn and try it. You wouldn't be- ieve the designs he put in a tin can at 50 paces." "Umph. Come here." Selwyn lowered his voice/ "You seem to know something about affairs of the heart, Sherm. Do you think Wilma loves that fellow?" "Yes, I do, Selwyn." "I wondered. I don't know her well enough to ask her, but I thought she might have taken you into her confidence. I think, . maybe, you're right. She's different than I ever saw her before. More quiet. I'd say thoughtful . . . if it was anybody else. It's queer." "What is?" "Why . . . I can say this to you. We don't know the first thing about that fellow. I can't figure that Wilma ever would take up with anybody that wasn't the right sort. But she's young, after all. I've been wondering a little if I didn't owe it to all of us - . . Wilma in particular . . . to hunt him up. You get what · I mean. I suppose there are ways. You should know, being a lawyer." 'Yes . . . there are ways," Gordon hesitated. "Could you shop around a little for me?" "Sorry, Selwyn, but I couldn't. I don't want to be stuffy about it - . · but Wilma and I are too good friends for that. She'd never forgive me if she thought I'd turned Sherlock behind her back." "That's your idea, eh? You'd let her take a chance, before you'd help tier." "You know I wouldn't. Sleuthing is out of my line, anyway." Gordon smiled. "But I'll give you the address of some people who have done a lot of work for us. They're dependable. If you like, I'll make a contact there for you." "I suppose they're in the city," Marsh growled. "All right. Let me have the address. I'm going in tomorrow." He pushed a memorandum pad in Sherman's direction and watched him scrawl a name and address hastily. "Thanks. If you don't mind, I'd like to get to work." "Sure. I'll be seeing you . . . often." Marsh put the address in his wallet, then reached down to rub the satiny ear of the dachshund who just then laid hia stubby paws on his owner's knee. "Pfeffernusse," he observed dryly, "if you have any children running about, my advice to you is to ignore them." A never-ending source of delight to Thora Dahl was the old-fashioned flower garden at Fair Acres. She would have known without being told that it had, for many years, been the pride and care of little Mrs. Myron. The neat paths and prim beds looked like her. Thora thought. Much of her own spare time was spent in its upkeep, and now, in the late summer, it was gay with blooms. This Sunday morning, she had arisen almost at her usual hour and had gone out to gather fresh flowers for the house. She was seated on one end of a rustic bench beside a heap of asters, sorting them in various color combinations, when she was aroused from her reveries by tie sound of a step on the path. She glanced over her shoulder to find Alex Babbas watching her with an amused smile. He was coatless and wearing knickers. "You are a very busy lady . . . so early in the morning," he suggested, helping himself to a seat on the other end of the bench. An unlighted cigaret was hanging from the corner of bis mouth. He took a silver lighter from his pocket and turned it aimlessly in his slim tin- gczs. His gray eyes were fixed on Tbora's face, but she felt that they were peculiarly expressionless . . . giving no inkling whatever to the thoughts that might be in his mind. "You are up and about rather early yourself, aren't you?" she asked with a slight smile, returning to her task. "Frightfully. Wilma wanted to golf. I fancy I was-a bit optimistic in thinking she would show up. But here I am. . . ." "It is a nice morning for playing," Thora agreed. "Not bad. Don't you go in for golf?" "I never have." "I've been wondering what you do with yourself. I never get a sight of you, except at the table. Do you hide between meals?" "Of course not. I have my work to attend to;" "Rather a pity. You have evenings off, I dare say." "Oh, I have various odds and ends to attend to." Thora decided that this particular topic had been discussed sufficiently. She changed the subject by asking: "How do you like this country, Mr. Babbas?" "Well enough." He snapped his lighter ajid held its flame to the end of his cigaret. "It's no new experience for me," he admitted. "I've been over on this side a good many times before. Have some interests that require looking after from time to time. Rather a bore, but it gives one something to do now and then. Is your home around here?" "No. I have lived in the west . . . until rather lately." "Ah! Out among the jolly old Indians and cowboys. This chap Gordon was telling me you have quite a way with horses." "I like to ride." "Can't say that I do. I like a fast car. But I'd rather go around on my own feet when I'm on the move. Horses are okay to bet on ... if you're on the inside." (TO BE CONTINUED) Petit Jurors Excused From Trial Duty Here Until Monday Morning Judge Joseph J. Clark Thursday excused petit jurors in the panel called for duty during the current term of district court, requesting them to report again at 10 o'clock Monday morning, March 9, at which time trial of the case brought by F.

MARVEL SALES CO, WEBSTER CITY, IOWA t ¥ TAKE INSURANCE FIRMS'LICENSES I Union Mutual Life of Iowa, Union Mutual Casualty Face Receivership. DES MOINES, (.T)--The Union Mutual Life company of Iowa and the Union Mutual Casualty company, both of Des Moines, faced receivership Thursday after the state insurance department revoked their licenses to operate. Deputy Insurance Commissioner Maurice V. Pew announced the permit revocation in a formal statement of investigations into the affairs of the companies. He ashed Attorney General Edward L. O'Connor to obtain the appointment of Ray Murphy, state insurance commissioner, as receiver. The attorney general's office said Thursday no action would be taken on the request until Atty. Gen. Edward L. O'Connor returns from Iowa City where he is attending- the funeral of his wife's mother. Pew's statement declared the insurance department found "that the continuation' of these companies in business is hazardous to the public and fcvholders of its policies." "Cvuuition of Insolvency. 1 ' He said the department found a condition of insolvency" in the casualty company, and "irregular practices" by the life insurance company. William Schulz, Jr., was named president of the life insurance company; Carl G. Schulz, vice president and secretary; H. R. Schulz, treasurer; and Dr. Howard D. Gray, medical director. Pew'declared, however, that new officers have taken office in the last two weeks: C. E. Hextell. president; Frank Comfort, vice president; H. R. Schulz, secretary; and Rolfe Wagner, treasurer. Examiner Designated. Pew's statement asserted: "The department on Jan. 30 designated an examiner-in-charge of these institutions who has since that date supervised all dealings with the assets of these companies for the protection of policy holders. "He will continue to do so pending court action on the receivership application to be filed by the attorney general." Pew said the Union Mutual Life company has about 520,000,000 of insurance in force, only about ?3,000,000 of which is held by lowans. The examiners reported listed assets of the casualty company as S99.591.69, and liabilities aa ?118,251.68. The report charged that among the "irregularities" against the life insurance company were that it: Extravagant Statements. "Makes g r o s s l y extravagant statements to its policy holders, which statements are made with the obvious intent to deceive, x x x "Accepts risks with knowledge of the applicants' physical impairments and then, in the case of death, rejects the claims on grounds of such impairment, x x x "Attempts to defraud beneficiaries under just and valid claims hy settlement for less than the full amount due. x x x "Disposes of company property, namely, mailing lists, without rendering due account thereof to the company, x x x "Makes investments that are not primariry in the best interests of the company. "Records the termination of many policies on grounds of lapsation before the proper expiration date of the policies." f. i
