iiros^g^jaaLaa.^^^.,^. FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 3 · 1937 ll LIVESTOCK PRICES KEEP GAINING HOG TOP GOES UP TO SI 0,45 Swine Advance as Much as 10 Cents, Fat Lambs Rise 25 Cents. C H I C A G O , (/P) -- Livestock pi-ices continued to advance Wednesday when receipts showed no signs of expanding. Hogs gained as much as 10 cents. Top rose 5 cents to $10.45. Fat lambs rose as much as 25 cents in instances and sheep shared in-this upturn. Sellers held their best lambs at $10.60 to $10.65 and upward hut early bids were slightly below these figures. The choice cattle trade was more or less at a standstill, with the supply of highly finished beeves slightly excessive considering tlic reduced shipper outlet. Prices tended lower although choice steers and yearlings were held at 514.50, which matched the 12- months peak established last week. Some early sales to order buyers were unchanged to a shade higher with best steers selling at $14 to $14.35. 'After taking severe price cuts on stock last week, producers demonstrated they were unwilling to market and sell with a loss in view. The remit is that receipts o£ cattle at 20 principal markets so Jar this week have been approximately 25 per cent lighter than a week ago. Hogs show a 44 per cent reduction and sheep are 32 per ceut under last week's volume. ' Wholesale beef carcass prices showed no change at 10 to 19 cents a pound but pork loins gained V'a cent a pound in instances, the range being 16',i to 20 cents compared with 16 to 18 a week ago. ome .sales 25c higher for ihc week; fat stock steady to easy; cows du;:; ockers and feeders slow, about steady; lad trboice to prime 1050 lb. fat ycar- ngs $13: prime medium fed beeves held bove S13.50; few other sales Sll£d2.rO; mall lots good fed liei(ers above $8; beral showing short fcils $7.7aS9.50: rictly choice quoted up to Stl; most cef cows S4.50f'G.2a: f e w 57117.50; cutler rades largely $3.055/4.23; load lots good 25 lo 7^0 lb. stock steers 5G.50; current ocker and feed cattle captations: Steers 50 to 800 Ibs. sood and choice S6.2jft8.25; ommon and medium S-lfiC.25; 1(00 to l.OaO )s. good and choice s(j.£5fl?8.25; common ul medium S4.2STiC.25; heifers Rood :mtl liotco $5.256i ili.50; common and medium 41(5.25; cows good S43f'l,50; common anil nedium $3.501/4: calves (slcer) good and rioice SG^af'3.^5; medium S4.;iO'UG.25.

Because of his pride, Joel first refuses to permit Janet to continue working and then conceals the fact he has been playing (he role of gigolo at a cocktail bar because he can find nothing else. Joel is elated when Janet tells him of his chance for a screen last. He does not know that the card was intended for her--not for him. Janet proves to be Joel's inspiration during the screen test. Anxiously they await word from the studio. Joel receives word ol a six months' contract in Hollywood. Now Go on With the Story. CHAPTER 11 "WHAT TIME is It?"

Martha didn't even look at her watch, she was getting to be export in gauging the passing of time. "Exactly four," she answered in the patient tone of a nurse to a nervous patient. Janet drew on the straws on her glass and looked at herself in the mirror back oE the soda fountain in the drug store at Grand Central station. She pulled her beige hilt down a trifle over her right eye so that the jaunty green feather was straight in the air. She approved the fit of the beautifully tailored shoulders of her twill suit. Her smart brown suede handbag and gloves were at the right o£ her elbow. "Do I look like'a movie star's wife?" she inquired dreamily. "Have I an aura of success around my twenty-dollar hat?" "You look like a little girl with her angles twisted around a stool, and enjoying an ice cream soda," Martha said practically. "Well, that isn't what I feel like," Janet said gaily. "And I'm not really enjoying this soda. I'm rahtic! Where is Joel? He said le'd be here now and . . ." Martha fished for coins in her andbag. She refused to be rufled: "Joel is undoubtedly exactly vhere he said he'd be--in the barer shop. For goodness sake, Ja- iet, you'll have me on edge if you ceep this up. Your train doesn't go or half an hour." Then suddenly Joel was there vith a young man in great horn- immed glasses witli a brief case under his arm and a manner of etng harassed beyond all bearing vho talked about "the office on .he coast" and seemed to be giv- ng Joel directions as though he lad to repeat the performance a lundred times a day and had to 3e off to more important things. There was uo red velvet carpet for Joel and Janet albeit there s the usual dusty one for the isual collection of celebrities and others who make the trek on the Twentieth Century Limited to Chicago, for connection with the ,os Angeles train. And there were flowers and magazines and candy and books and even a bottle o£ spirits in the Paynter's drawing room which had been provided by well-wishing friends. The last half hour sped quickly and, when the train pulled out, Janet t h r o u g h blurred eyes watched as long as she could see the dear, familiar dumpy figure of Martha Colby. She and Joel sat like two children in their drawing room, looking out the "windows as the train emerged from the tunnel, taking their last look at the tenements that flanked the railroad tracks. They said little. They were feeling a trifle awed, now that the adventure had really begun. Someone had sent them a collection of the screen fan magazines. Joel didn't give them glance but Janet, with a furrow on her clear brow, read them from cover to cover £or the first time in her life. "Look, darling," she said passing one of them to Noel, "Mrs. Franchot Tone--Joan Crawford to you--gives a reception for Stokowski. Will you just look at the list ol guests! Dear me, I can see where I'm going to lead a busy social life." She thumbed through anothei magazine and held up a picture of a famous screen star and his bride The couple stood beside a swimming pool. There was a magnificent house in the background "And look at this. You don't suppose we'll have lo live in a place like that, do you?' Joel stuck .out his chest and favored her with a black look lha would have been terrible if Jane hadn't known he was having fur "You married me and you'll take what I have to offer even if it only a 30-room house with a rancl Produce MASON CITY--For Wednesday Cash Quoiaflons by E.

"Oh, Joel, 1 will you buy me a ten-gallon hat and a gun to pad on my hip? Then, when the servants get unruly, I'll scare 'em t death." The servants were, ot course purely a subject of conversation Janet had no dreams that spread themselves to servants 'and towt cars. But she did have one little happy dream of a house that \vi vaguely like something in a musi cal comedy. It would be white and have a very green lawn and prob ably rose trellises. At tirst, Janet knew that sli and Joel were going to stay at hotel and then, surely on the grea sum of money they had for an in come, they could find just the lit tie place she had in mind--on that would cost so little that the; could save gobs of money. Along with that dream was th half formed picture of her days Days that began with Joel walldn down the little walk between th green lawns i,n the early tnornin sunlight. Then for the rest of th day Janet would have her littl house to care for and deliciou things to cook for Joel. He woul return for her at the end of th day. He might be a businessman so happy was that plan. No mot disordered days and lonely eve mugs while Joel was at the the ater. In her spare time she won! have a garden, would cmbrotde petit point, knit, read and leai to play golf. She and Joel woul read together, swim, play golf an tennis. Oh, life could be so beau tiful for them now! There were no brass bands an no reception committee lo welcom them when they reached Los An Seles but there was the countc part of the worried young man New York. This one was possibly a lilt more rushed and Janet felt tl Paynlcrs 'had done him a personal injury by arriving on a Sunday afternoon. She was so completely overcome by his manner that she did not protest when he mentioned an expensive hotel and suggested that they put up there for a few days until they found what they wanted. Th'eii- first night she wanted to dress for dinner and was sure that they would find the grand dining room filled with stars. But Joel dismissed the idea, saying that they would go out to see the town after dinner. They walked and walked with a sort of breathlessness, hand in hand until Janet insisted that they return to the hotel since Joel was to start his career the, following morning. She was awake at six and had a sleepy, protesting Joe! up and at his breakfast before eight. "You don't want to be late and ie clerk said it was an hour's ride ut to Federal City." That was the ame o£ the location of. the stu- 05. She saw him off as though he ere going to his first' "day in rhool. Then she bathed leisurely, rawing out every minute because ie day stretched long before her ntil Joel would be home at diner time. She dressed and took erself out into the October sun- ght that was warm as rnidsum- ner in New York. She dawdled along the broad treets, gazing into the windows o£ le shops, killing time until she ound a tea-room where she had inch. She went to a movie in the fternoon and delayed her foot- teps back to the hotel. Joel was there when she ar- ived. ; I've been here all afternoon," e said crossly. Janet was immediately worried. What happened, darling? Don't oil me there has been some mis- ake about your contract!" ·No, that's okay, but I guess hey didn't think another Gable ad arrived. I sat in an outer of- ice for a couple of hours and then !ot in to see an assistant casting irector who looked me over and aid he'd call me when the studio vanted me. So here I am." And there he was £or nearly hree weeks. Then they found a message that Joel was to report lo he studio at six-thirty the next Ttorning. The next night Joel came back o the hotel with a huge box under lis arm and a grin on his face. "I've been given the second lead n Jarrett's picture so I'm celebrating with a present for my bride. Open it!" Janet opened the box and saw-with consternation--the loveliest nink coat she had ever seen. "Next time it will be sables," lie (To Be Continuea) aross Revenues of Rock Island Lines Show Big Increase Gross revenue for the R o c k Island lines for the year 1936 was $78,066,706, the highest since 1931, and an increase of approximately SH.OOO.OOO.or 10 per cent over 1935.
