FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 1 · "1937 HOG AND CATTLE PRICES ADVANCE RUNS SHARPLY CUT AT CHICAGO Swine Gain 25 Cents and in Some Cases as Much as 50 Over Friday. CHICAGO, (.T)--A sharp reduction in livestock receipts Monday was followed b.y a sweeping advance in hog and cattle prices that practically wiped out, in some cases, the losses sustained during last week. · The hog run fell to 14,000 head, IB,ODD head below advance estimates. This constituted the smallest Monday supply in . many months. The cattle supply dropped almost 5,000 head below expectations to 9,500. The sheep run was olf 3,000 to 12,000. .. Hogs advanced 25 cents and in some case's 50 cents above Friday's average, Top rose 25 cents to $10.25. Aside from the curtailment in producers' marketings, reflecting to some extent farmers' efforts to stem the price decline which has been underway recently largely because -of the ilood and strike situation, the hog market gamed stimulus also Monday from a right-about-face ol the wholesale pork market. Fresh loins advanced ''·, to l'/2 cents a pound to a 16 to 10 cents range wholesale. This was the first upturn since the first oE the year and traders said it reflected an improvement in meat demand. . Most cattle advanced a shade to 25 cents and shippers returned to the market for substntial supplies. No sales were made early m tue da ycomparable .to the $1.4 quotable top for choice steers the bulk moving considerably below that 18 The'lamb trade opened slow but the market had a steady undertone.

Buying impetus was greatest in the first hour. Thereafter selling cropped up here and there and trading dwindled. Gains were in the majority near the final period. Transfers were around 2,400,000 shares. General Motors was down nearly a point as the company went into court to press its eviction plea against sit-down sinkers. Chrysler and Nash-Kelvinator improved moderately. At 20 he offers his advice; at 30 he is flattered when you ask for it; after 50 he doesn't feel qualified to give it.--Waterloo Courier.

"Catch, it please, Mrs. Birnej'," she said to that lady as she let hersell down gingerly. She caught up the velvet lolds o£ her gown as she did so. "Hello, darling," she said to Joel and rolled her, eyes ceiling ward. Her voice was gay enough, "Not a thing yet. Don't be impatient. It's only a week . . . well, have it your way then, it's 10 days but you know how those people are." There was a hint of mischief in her voice as she said demurely, "Couldn't 1 call you at the studio if there were any news? No? All right. Try to be patient." ''My, gaq'ness," Mrs. Birney sifted the pins in her mouth and picked up her chalk. She was shortening Janet's black velvet dinner dress to street length and causing Janet no small compunctions. Janet had loved that dress but she had no smart new frock and she needed this one badly for daytime use, "That husband of yours acts more like a bridegroom than any man I know. -That's the second time he has called you this afternoon." Janet siood very still. "Don'l make it too short," she said ara continued, "Joel isn't calling me just to talk v to me. He's going frantic waiting to hear how bib screen test came put. He telephones me three times every aC- lernoon and trails me around as though I had something up my sleeve." "I can take some of this skir and put little cap sleeves into this dress ynd it'll make it look like new," Mrs. Birney answered, tin train of her thought obvious. "Bu now how do you feel about having a handsome feller like that out there in Hollywood with all the beautiful, wicked movie stars?" "Wicked? I grant that most of them are beautiful but I am not sure that they're' wicked and why shouldn't I feel anything but happy about it?" Janet answered reasonably. Mrs. Birney sat back on her heels. "You can't fool me, Mrs. Paynter. You're a home-body and not one of those fly-by-night brides most o£ my boys bring home. I've known you now for six months and I've heard you singing and cooking and fussing around up here and, mark my words, you'll be happier this way than you'll ever be with Rolls Royces and them other things." "Now, don't you worry about that, Mrs. Birney. I can take my love in a man who would offer her gypsy existence, who would have leaned on her rather than have been the one who should have been the stronger of the two. Felicity Burns would have smiled in that quiet beyond had she known. Felicity, who had the look of the wind on the moors in her eyes, had never seen the great granddaughter who was to heed a call she had heard herself some sixty years before. Felicity had followed that call and the laughing eyds of an Irish lad to Amer-- ica. Felicity's son, Ian, had married a Scotch lass and their daughter, Janet, had married the liery little physician, Angus MacLeod, but the Irish strain and Felicity's answer had persisted and blossomed the day that Janet MacLeod had seen the rangy length f Joel Paynter making his way to er across a Smoke-filled draw- ng room. Felicity, with her little leather runk and her heart filled with ove, had not been afraid to face vhatever the uncertain future had n store for her with Terry O'Brian. And if her laugh was not so reaq"y on her mobile mouth, her spirit vas staunch and her eyes were ever upward with understanding :o where her Terry's head was in .he clouds. And her manner was quiet, anchored to the ground here her small feet served for two. Janet was like Felicity. She could encourage, she could share and she could comfort. Her capacity was deep and for -all her small stature, she was sound. She could weigh her balances and when the storms in her life were imminent, she held the wheel of her emotions with a steady hand. She thought of Felicity, whom she had never known, during those clays when she and Joel were waiting to hear the outcome of the screen test.

She had been a bride bul six months yet she seemed to have been married to Joel all her life The things that had filled her life -- her work, her home, her own circle o£ friends-- all these had been like a dream in these las months. She pondered on it won rlering what alchemy love wrough in a woman that all the thing that had been, all the influences the desires, the work of living ho daily life, coulc* dissolve inl nothingness In the presence of he new love. Long later Janet was to realize j that these things did not dissolve. They receded and remained in the ba'ckgi'ound of her life, but they were to re-enter it again at times diverse, times when she needed them and times when she wouid have put them out of her thinking. Had Janet taken out the things that made up her life and laid them out for herself lo value she would have found herself poor in the things a bride might have called important. She had no horm- that was truly hers. She hadn't even had a new frock since she was married. .She had nil uncertain economic present and a future that might have been filled with riches and glamor ot might as well have been poor. And but a continuance of living as she had been from crisis to crisis, as Joel progressed from one short-lived engagement to another. But she had faith in h i m , rather t h a n in his ability. She did not believe that Joel was a great acloi but she believed that lie knew what he was doing, knew his own capabilities and that the desire to act, to portray the drama coulc not have been so big had it not been justified. You might have thought, hac you known Jane£ those years aftei Dr. MacLeod had closed his office for the last time and come to the end of his life five years before that Janet was to follow in the footsteps of her people. Good !|uiet women, married to responsible, conventional, prudent men Women who might have stretcher. a dollar and darned their hus band's socks and done it with dig nily. But you would never hav thought that Janet was to find he it so much?" "To buy you pretty things with. To put money in the bank. To travel and see the world. Never to have to worry about the next meal. Never to see my Janet cooking another lamb stew." He laughed. Janet was very grave. "That can't be the real reason, Joel." "No, it isn't," he said, blowing s m o k e rings contemplatively. "Only I feel like a fool when I try to talk about the things inside me. Those things have a lot to do ilh it,'There are roles I'd like to lay. Great, inspirational roles! he pictures are doing great hings today, giving great oppor- unities for interpretation, for the xpression of an art, I'd like to do hem, Janet. I'd like to playgreat' arts. Don't laugh at this, darling, 'd like to do Hamlet!" Janet didn't laugh. She was too proud of him. He wanted to ex- ress something he felt; He want- id to create a character out of a nan the same way a painter created a scene out of canvas and paints. Acting had dignity, she .hough, rather incoherently, "And so you will," she said 'aithfully. "And you, my queen, shall have a satin cushion for your feet and i carriage of chromium and steel md never again will your little fingers touch kitchenware. You'll sew a fine seam and eat strawberries and cream." Janet had a sinking feeling that . that was just what she was going io do. And that was the last thing on earth she wanted. (To Be Continued) LAYS RULINGS ON MAJOR CASES Supreme Coui't Reports 23 Decisions After Three Weeks' Recess. WASHINGTON, (/P)--The supreme court returned from a three veeks 1 recess Monday and, in jne t: its busiest sessions, announced , ecisions in 23 cases. It deferred for at least another veek, however, rulings on major ases now before it. These in- r olve the Washington state law stablishing minimum wages for vomen and whether the 1933 con- cessional resolution barring pay- nent of obligations in gold applied o bullion as well as coin. In other actions, the tribunal reused to review a controversy in- ,'olving the constitutionality o£ the federal social security act and the complementary Massachusetts unemployment insurance law. No reason was given. Among the decisions given, the court declared unconstitutional ah effort by Texas lo limit production of natural gas in the panhandle field and to allocate the amount among the various producers. Another decision held unconstitutional a Washington state law imposing a fee on railroads and other public utilities to be used in defraying expenses of their regulation. It was a 5 to 4 decision. Justice Stone, who has been ill since October 13, returned to the bench Monday. $70,708 in Soil Pay Received in Franldin HAMPTON--First payment soil conservation checks amounting to 570,708 were received here Friday.
