J 'FOURTEEN .MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 29 M 1937 Chicago Swine Run 3,000 Head Below Advance Estimates. CHICAGO, ($)--Livestock receipts were reduced enough Friday to give most tranches of the market's steady'.basis with prices little changed from Thursday at the. week's rather sharp decline'. Lambs declined but hogs and cattle were unchanged. The hog rim was 3,000 head below the advance estimate and the cattle run, totaling only 1,500 head, was of£ 5DO. There were a number of holdover beeves on hand, however. While most of the hogs sold unchanged, choice lightweights were slightly higher and pigs and sows were slightly lower. The $10 top matched Thursday's quotable peak. .The cattle trade ^yas of a cleanup nature.. Best 1,500 pound steers brought $12,35 but the bulk sold down from ?10. Early indications were that lambs would sell around 25 cents lower. Sellers were holding their best offerings 'above §10.35 but bids.were nowhere near this figure. ^"^f^eS Wholesale pork loin and beef carcass prices were unchanged, Local Livestock f !

The Orient was reported as taking some Australian \vhca and there was a better inquiry for Argentine offerings. Later in the day ag greffate sales of exporters were plnccd around a million for Monitobas. There \vas a much better tone to the Winnlpej market and according to information from that point, there was a tendency to reinstate long wheat which had recently been sold. Modern Miller said that on accoun of higher temperatures prevailinff In the southwest, most of the moisture hat seeped into the ground and report's Indi cate that the outlook for the wheat crop Is well maintained. The wheat market Friday maintained quite a firm undertone and there were clear evidences of replacement of long wheat recently sold In this market a well as in Winnipeg.

CHICAGO, (IP)--Indications that 1,000,000 bushels of Canadian wheat had been taken for .exporl helped lilt wheat prices Friday. May wheat in Chicago, representing wheat already on hand, was purchased against sales of July, a new crop month. This tended to widen the spread between the two futures. Reports of virtual settlement of the maritime strike led to increased selling pressure on corn. At the close, wheat was ',2 to IVi cents above Thursday's finish; May, §1.273/4 to $1.27%; July, $1.10% to SI.10%; corn unchanged to 1 lower; May, $1.06% to $1.06%, July $1.00% to $1.00 : -4; oats, i/t to J ,4 "P, and provisions showing 5 to 10 cents decline.

Joel Payntcr, second-rate actor, whom she met a few weeks previously at a cocktail party. Because Joel asked Janet to stop work, she has had to economize. Martha Col- hy, her best friend, visits Janet in their one-room apartment. Joel tells Janet his show is closing. Janet decides to go back to work but abandons the idea when Joel, because of pride, rebukes her for considering it. Joel finds a job but he is vague about where he is working. Janet meets Harry De- vantcr, an old beau, who insists she have a cocktail with him. At the Jungle Bar Janet is dismayed to find Joel there in the role of ffigolo. Harry, a film scout, gives Janet his card requesting a screen test for ''the bearer." NOW GO ON WITH THE STOR1' CHAPTER 7. Janet knew t h a t she didn't carry oil lies well; ihey were not pail o£ her make-up so she stifled her conscience with the thought that what she was doing should not hurt Harry Devanter and that some day -- if her plan worked -she would explain it to Harry. "How about t h a t dance now?" "I'm afraid we haven't time,' Janet added another white lie to her list. She couldn't have Joel see her dancing, have Joel humiliated by her discovery of his secret. "We've dawdled so long! Dinner to prepare- vaguely arid put on her gloves. "I'll bet you're a good little cook," he said admiringly. "When are you going to invite me lo dinner and to meet the new husband?" "You're going away tomorrow and you're not coming back until MOTOR, STEEL SHARES RALLY Advance Near Finish After Shuffling Around in. Early Trade.

Her arms were filled with packages when she reached the brownstone house. One by one she opened them with an air of excitement. There were a half dozen yellow roses and four candles o£ he same color. There were minute packages of Joel's favorite salted nuts. There were oysters on the half-shell. There was also a little duck to cook with slices of orange and there was crisp endive. These vere festive things that Joel loved.

Janet clicked out the bright lights and the room was in candle light save for the soft glow of the rose-shaded lamp. "Hello, what have we here? A party!" Joel stood his wife off, and as Janet had hoped, his face lighted up with that look of eager expectancy that gave him an air of wistfulness, a very appealing wistfulness. "Yes, darling." She took his hat and while she hung it in the closet she said. "A cocktail party. A dinner party also." "It must be something special because you forgot to kiss me." He rectified her omission and repeated, "What's the glad occasion?" "f don't know whether to tell you now or whether to have you:- dinnef served first because, Joel, it's something that may be very important. You couldn't guess what it is, could you?" Joel obliged her; he assumed nn air oE deep concentration. He said: "My stepfather has struck oil and made us a wedding present!" . "No," she shook her head and the cocktail shaker at the same time. "We're going to have a baby!" "Oh, Joel!" she put down the shaker and forgot what had been in her mind. She and Joel had never talked about having a baby and somehow she hadn't dreamed that it would make him happy. "We're not, but would it make you happy?" "What make? you think it would not, young woman? Don't you think I'd make a good father?" "The very best in the world," she answered. · "But since we're not. you might remember that I'm only human and I still haven't heard t h e news." "You're going to hear it in one minute." Janet went over to the dresser and picked up a small white square of cardboard. She carried it back to him. "Read," she commanded. "Harry Devanter," he .read. "What's it mean?" "Turn it over, idjit!' He turned it over to the back where Harry had scrawled and read, "Kurt--please give the bearer a screen test at your earliest opportunity, I think I ha^ve something here. Harry." "Janet!" He spoke her name and Janet saw that his face had gone white. She thought, oh Lord, what have I done? Please let it be the right thing. She was in it too deep to withdraw now. She did as she had planned. She opened her mouth lo speak. At first it was hard and then, quite convincingly, she said, "Mr. Devanter came by this afternoon. He said he was a movie scout from Federal looking for new faces. He said he had seen you in your last show and wanted eo see a screen test o£ you. He . . . h'e didn't promise anything." ' But there was no muting Joel's enthusiasm then. "He didn't haye to promise anything, Jan," he shouted, waltzing her around the room. "This is my chance! This is the only way to get in pictures! To have someone discover you I've got to get to this Devanter chap. Where is he?" Janet was panicky but she sounded cool and composed when she said, "You can't do that . . yet. He left for Chicago or St ^ouis or some place this afternoon He said he won't be back for month but if you just take this card over to a man named Km Jackson at the Federal studios ii. Corona, Mr. Jackson will arrange it." Janet woke up about four in the morning with the horrible feeling that perhaps Harry had telephoned Mr. Jackson to tell him he was sending a girl, not a man, for the screen test. But she comforted herself with the thought that Joe would be less of a shock t h a n the sighl of her for Janet herself lo be unattractive. Nevertheless, her hands felt ho and dry while Joel telephoned tin Federal offices the next momini and talked to Kurt Jackson. "He'll make it tomorrow morn ing," he told her exultantly as hi put up the receiver. "What do you suppose I'll have to do?" Janet said that she had no ide; but, whatever it was, she was sun that it would turn out all righl "Darling, I want you to go to th- nearest telephone and call me th minute it's over," she told him His face fell like a little boy's "Janet, don't you want to com with me?" "Do you want me to?" she asket and her eyes shone. He took her face between hi hands and kissed her tenderly Then he drew her toward him anc pressed her head against him. Sh could feel his heart pounding unti it grew calm beneath the sol touch of her. "Don't you know that ever; man wants his sweetheart witi him at every important momen of his life?" he said. "Oh, my dearest," she answer ed. "Whether I'm at your side o away from you at every importan moment and every other momen I am with you and I always \vi' be no matter what happens." "But what is going to happen you little goose?" Janet was surprised lo find tha she was suddenly frightened Frightened of this stimulatin world that was her husband's bu not hers. She was afraid of all th morning we are going to show the inema its new star." "Don't be silly, honey. I'll be ucky to get a chance. I may never e a star." "Oh, yes, you will be," she said eterminedly. (To Be Continued) January 17e; October firsts. February 22'/«c, . c; fresh graded . , Poialo futures: Idaho JlusseU, January March (trade A S3. 53.
