TWENTY MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 4 · 1937 HOG VALUES DROP 15 TO 25 CENTS PRODUCERS STEP UP MARKETINGS Prices in Other Branches i of Livestock Trade Tend Upward. 'CHICAGO, (/P)--Taking advantage of a sharp upturn in hog prices eavly this week, producers stepped up the volume ol market- ings again Thursday and as a result forced values 'off 10 to 15 cents. Prices in other branches of the livestock trade, however, tended upward. The hog supply shot up to 27,000 head, by far the largest of Hie \veek and 8,000 head above expectations. This gave buying interests .command of the market and they erased some of the ·week's advance of around. 50 cents. Top sank 15 cents to 510.30. Packers were after numbers in ·the cattle trade largely because of the very small supplies marketed this week. Prices were bid upward 25 cents on most steers and year- liiigs.though, buyers said, the basic condition did not warrant the ad- varice because the dressed trade continued sluggish. Seven market receipts of cattle so far this week are approximately 30,0,00 head below last week, and receipts of hogs and sheep also have been cut sharply. Best cattle moved at $13 to $14.25, with a top of $14.35 paid for yearlings. The bulk of 'best finished steers late Wednesday sold at $13.50 to $14.50. Fat Iambs tended upward with the supply moderate. Bids ran up to $10.50 but sellers held on for 10 to 25 cents higher. Wholesale trading on fresh meats continues dull but prices, particularly of pork, have been forced higher because of lighter supplies. Trade to the flood zone is light with reports of mostly canned meats and eggs going as the main food because' coolers are not operating.

Tie ifj llMy* rrmonleT, lit it] Ito! 1 J to continue working conceals the fact he READ THIS FIRST: Janet Paynter, newly married to a second-rats actor, Joel Payn- ler, whose show has just closed, obtains a card from an old friend, Harry Devanter, a film scout, re- cruestinff a screen test for "the bearer." Because of his pride, Joel first refuses to permit Janet and then has Teen playing the role of gigolo at a cocktail har hccause he can find nothing else. Joel is elated when Janet tells him of !iis chance for a screen test. He floes not know that the card was intended for her --not for him. Janet proves to be Joel's .inspiration . d u r i n g : .the screen test. Anxiously they await word from the studio. Joel receives word of a six mouths' contract in Hollywood. Janet and Joel go west and stop at a luxurious hotel in Los Antreles. Three weeks later, when told to report for work, Joel brings Janet a mink coal. Now Go on "With the Story CHAPTER 12 JANET STOOD there in the middle of the room that was costing them ten dollars a day and held the mink coat mutely. Her face was a study in the mixed emotions ol bewilderment, pride and exasperation. "Put it on, princess," Joel urged. Janet slipped her arms into it and felt the soft caressing warmth of it as she folded it about her. Still she didn't speak. She looked at herself in the mirror of the dressing table and, looking, saw that Joel's face had fallen. It did something to her. It twisted her heart. "It's beautiful," she said at last. "Much too beautiful for me, my darling." Then she took it off and put it back in the box. Joel was on his feet to stop her, "It's for you, Janet." "I know, deai%" she said, "and I love it as though I were going to keep it but we can't. You can't 'afford to buy me such things. We've got to find a place to live and save some money in case the studio doesn't pick up its option and you've got to have lots of new clothes for your wardrobe. Some day, you can buy me a mink coat when we can afford it." "I've bought it," he said stubbornly. "I've made a down payment on it and I'll have it paid for in eight weeks. I couldn't give you a honeymoon when w ; e were married. I couldn't even buy you an engagament ring." "We weren't engaged," she said with a twinkle in her eye. "We didn't have time." "Even your wedding ring only cost a couple of dollars. I haven't done anything tor you but pay the rent and buy pur food. Now, when I want to do something that makes me happy, you don't want it. For the love of heaven, Jan, are you always going to throw cold water on my plans? Is there so much difference between us that I'm always to think of a month or a year ahead before I can do one thing that I want to? We've got to understand each other right now." For one brief moment Janet thought t h a t they were quarreling, she thought that Joel's citing in- eompatability was a serious thing. But then she realized t h a t he was hurt and that when people are hurt they say things they do not mean. She took the coat out o£ the box and stroked the soft fur. "No, Joel," she said gently, wanted you to say these things to me. I really want to keep the coat! It's the most beautiful thing I have ever had. I had planned tc ·tell you some day that I hoped you'd give me one." Then she was in Joel's arms and he was happy again, confident of himself, forgiving her and calling himself a fool for having talked to her as he did. But he didn't see the truth. Janet was to have other gifts without number from Joel but she never had anything that she cher- shed as she did that mink coat ts value was beyond price to hei nd its warmth was for her hear ecause it was a symbol of Joel's Curb Market N E W YORK, f/pj--Minor variations ere registered in the curb m a r h u l luirsdny as the t r a d i n g tempo Tell to a ow beat.

It was simpler for the two them to stay at the hotel while c was working' on the Jarret icture, he pointed out. Tania Jarrett was Federal's emperamental Viennese artisti straight from Jackson Heights .ong Island), and working hours vere not easy in her picture. Joe vent off at six in the morning riving out to the studio with an ther actor from the cast and re Urmng late in the evenings. Meanwhile the bills at the hbte vere giving Janet heart attack very time the discreet gray en ·elope was presented to her. Finally she took matters in he iwn liands and began to make th ounds of the real estate offices ihe soon learned, atter bein hown English manor houses, Ital an villas and Austrian palaces for ent at the staggering figures you night imagine, to leave her mink ioat at home when she went on icr house hunting jaunts. ITinally she found the house. It vasn't a little white dream house --it was a small edition of the architect's idea of an English manor house. That is, it was built of brown stucco and had a great m a n y darker brown exposed beams here and there over its fa- ays later without telling him the easou why. "Whom shall we have?" he isked, willingly enough. "We on't know anyone." "We're going to know every- he," she answered blandly. "So el's think about it." "Suppose we ask Mary Pick- ord and Charlie Chaplin and . . ." "Not to this one," she answered lasily.-"Now,, let me see--" She lad a pencil and small pad in her land. "\Ve can't stay here and be )uried. There's Mr. and Mrs. Lockhart. They'll be excellent and know they'd love to come." Janet had made the acquaintance of Mrs. Lockhart--the wife of a screen writer--at a beauty parlor and the two girls had often had :ea together and whiled away lonely afternoons. "Then there's :Iarrison Teagle. He is sure to lave a girl and he has been in Hollywood a long time." Teagle vas the actor who had driven Joel o the studio before they came out lo the little house to live. "How about that Kellar chap?" Joel asked. "Kellar? Oh, the man we played bridge with? No, he won't do. He's lot in the picture business. But .here is that couple--you know the ones I mean--we had lunch with them in the commissary the day 1 went to the studio wilh u." "You mean Frank and Laura Crowell? I thought you didn't like her?" "I didn't," she'answered calmly. 'But what has liking got to do with it? She's secretary to* a big agent and he's in a producer's office. Also she told me 'she belonged to the Montblane Tennis club. Yes, r/e must ha%'e the :ro\vells, by all means. Then there \r. that yonn man who met us r,t the train and that girl from Screen View Magazine who interviewed you on the set. Let me see* hat brings the list up to ten. I wish we could get ten more." Joel was reading a magazine. "Why not some of the kids on tin- sot? Kathy Grace who plays opposite me and old Mr. Stanford and his wife? They've been here in Hollywood for a long time." "Wonderful! Do y o u think they'd come?" "Why not?" he asked and went back to his reading. "I can get a butler for the all-' ernoon and evening. The caterer will supply the food and liquor and I think a boy to play the accordion or perhaps if we could get a player who could bring along a little studio piano. . . ." Joel put down his magazine. "Mrs. Paynter, you're going at this in too business-like a way! What have you up your sleeve?" · v "Your career, darling. We've been here two months, a third o£ our time, and it's time we mixed around and lound out what's going on. It's time we made inroads." Joel roared with laughter. "Y6u little fixer," he said affectionately and forgot about the whole matter. Mrs. Paynter didn't; she didn't do things by hall measures. way (To Be Continued) But it did have a comfortable, spacious living room for a house so small, a small alcove for din- ng and a good-sized kitchen. Upstairs there was a large "master's" bedi'oom, a guest room and bath. And it was nicely furnished. The living room had simple, colnmal, modern furniture and a grand piano and Janet saw at once that she could do a great many things with it. Janet paid the first month's rent and made a call at a garage where she priced modest second-hand cars. That night, sitting proudly at the wheel of a car that cost a hundred and twenty-five dollars and looked worth two hundred, she hailed Joel at the gates of the studio. That astonished young man got in beside her and Janet drove him out to their new home. That night she learned her first lesson when Joel expressed delight. Thereafter she was to make all her moves without fear of what Joel would think of them. "We've got to have a housewarming," she said to him a few Luke Miller Letter Gets Praise From Procter and Gamble Luke B. Miller, owner and manager o£ the '1 local Sterling grocery and meat stores, recently entered the Profiler and Gamble contest in which six automobiles are being given away each week for a period ol weeks. To enter the contest, one must state in so many words why lie or she prefers Ivory soap. That is lust what Mr. Miller did and he has received a letter from the Procter and Gamble general manager, T. J. Wood, who had Hie following to say: "It is indeed a pleasure lo have your letter and I am particularly grateful for the support you are giving to Ivory soap and the other members o£ our line, f think so much of this letter that T am sending a copy oC it to the Western Division district managers." Mr. Miller was formerly employed in this territory as salesman for the Procter and Gamble company for ten years, and feels that this fact 'should disqualify him in the contest.
