^****"*TM*^ FOURTEEN . - ^ MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 6 · 1937 SWINE PRICES MOSTLY UNCHANGED NOTHING DONE IN CATTLE, SHEE Prices in All Branches of Livestock Trade Show Gains for Week. CHICAGO, (/P)--The few hogs sold Saturday moved at unchanged prices although some quotations were a shade lower. Good to choice swine scaling 180 to 260 pounds brought $10.20 to $10.35, the top. Nothing was done in cattle or sheep. Prices in all branches of the livestock trade advanced to good gains this week, largely wiping out the losses that .occurred the previous week. A sharp reduction in receipts here and at other principal markets was the main stimulating factor, a l t h o u g h t h e wholesale dressed trade had a better undertone. Dressed Trafle Belter. More action in the dressed trade, reflected particularly in higher prices for pork loins, was attributed to the ability of packers to get meat to parts of the country that have been under water, now that waters have receded somewhat, coolers are being put into operation again. Twenty market supplies of cattle were 30,000 head less than the previous week and 44,000 head below a year ago. Hog supplies were off more than 100,000 and 30,000 respectively, and sheep supplies were reduced 70,000 to 40,000 re- Hog Markets M I D W E S T HOGS.

Prices Climb Fractions to .4 Points; Steels and Rails Lead. NEW YORK, (/P)--The slock market had a quick change o£ heart Saturday and prices rallie'd fractions to 4 points over a broad front. Traders who unloaded yesterday, following the president's message to congress advocating drastic reforms in the federal judiciary, hurried to replace commitments and found offerings limited. Many leaders took their cue from steels and rails which were in the forefront of the comeback. There was some late selling, but this was fairly well absorbed. Transfers were around 1,500,000 shares. Technical Correction. Most brokers were still of the opinion Friday's sharp reaction was partly in the nature o£ a technical correction due to the recent advance of the list into peak :erritory for the past 5 or 6 years. Wall street's hopes lor a settte- iient of the General Motors strike was a bolstering influence. Bonds improved, but commodities developed uneven trends. Outstanding: Gainers. Outstanding share gainers included U. S. SteeJ, Bethlehem, -rucible, Gulf States Steel, U.

READ THIS FinST: In Hollywood following an ingenious maneuver on (he part of his younir wife, Janet, Joel Paynter, second-rate Broadway actor, begins work under a short term contract. Meanwhile Janet nude a point oT cultivating the right people, joins a tennis club and meets Vernon Chester, an important director. Chester asks her to play tennis and have lunch with him, NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY: In CHAPTER 14 the women's locker Janet slipped out of her shorts and pulled her blouse over her head. She stepped under the shower and turned on the cold faucet and then, while it ran so icy she could stand it no longer, she got a grip on herself. She knew how important it was to look cool and calm and restful. Vex-non Chester had given her a good workout teaching her a backstroke t h a t she had learned years ago (but could conveniently forget when it meant the opportunity for a great director to leach a little gii-l a trick and feel like a great big man lor doing it.) Oh, Janet didn't have eyelashes to sweep her cheeks provocatively. She didn't have a Dietrich look in her eye but she had a sound psychology for making men feel comfortable and rested and it was a distinguishing gift in Hollywood where glamor was served by the shoveful. Dry and fragrant with a pine powder that was refreshing and not cloying, Janet hurried into her dimity frock. It was an English print and had a touch of lingerie in the small round collar and at the cuffs o£ her short sleeves. She wound a bandeau of the same fabric about her , head and stepped into her white sandals. She did it quickly. Ever considerate, a lesson she had learned in the school of marriage, she did not keep Vernon Chester waiting. The waiter had only just arrived at their table on the screened porch bearing tall frosty glasses topped with a sprig of mint. "Where do you girls pack your energy?" Chester inquired admir- ngly as he noted the cool, fragility )£ her. "f'm worn out, but you ook as though you'd come out of a band-box." "That's just what I was going to :ay to you," she said. "Instead, uppose I just say that I think ·ou've been most kind. Mr. Cheser, to give me this lesson. You're a fine player and your form ! s perfect, f thought people in t h a t "lass didn't really brother with imateurs." "See here," he said when he had rdered their luncheon, "You're no amateur! You're doing all right." le looked over his horn-rimmed passes at her. "I suspect that you do everything well. Just what else do you do?" Janet buttered a piece of her oil and said, "Very little. I'm ·named, you know, to Joel Payn- "r." "That's right. He's a new young eller on our lot." " Oi '. yes," Janet said softly, do? ·'that's how I knew so much about you." She stopped speaking and devoted herself to her crab ravin- gote. No need to overdo anything. "Well, come on, what do you "I'm very uninteresting," slip said simply. "I I;eep house, play a little bridge, read a great deal, try to play tennis. I plan the meals, count the laundry, lallc about pictures to my husband and, like all the other girls in Hollywood who haven't jobs, I kill time." Vernon Chester was an observant man. He had seen all there was to see and know o£ the women in the picture colony. He knew their pretenses, their sub- leties, their purposes and their ways and means oE accomplishing them. He wasn't quite sure o£ what Janet wanted or i£ she wanted anlhing. He was inclined to think she did w a n t something. He didn't believe t h a t she was "like the other girls" she had mentioned. He thought there were wheels ticking back ol that smooth brow of hers, ideas and ambitions that lent brightness to her line, deep eyes. He t h o u g h t philosophically: They all want something and why shouldn't they? He would give to them if he could and i£ he liked them. He liked Janet Paynter. He'd liked her the lirst time he had met her three weeks before. Liked it that she hadn't ever before identified herself as Joel Paynter's wife So many of them had gushed over him in an effort to interest him in their sons or husbands. No, Janet wasn't like that. And she had been genuinely pleased when he telephoned and asked her to a lesson and a bit of lunch. Pleased, he knew, because it was obvious in her de- SOGO CLUBS IN SWEEP VICTORY Winners Take Two Each in Friday League Games at Local Lanes. · Atlas Tires, Polarine and Standard Oil each won three games in the Soco bowling league Friday night, Polarine shooting the high series with 1,920 and the best single, 646.

Janet thought, this is the moment for me lo tell him about "The Dance Was Long." She wanted to talk about U adroitly since it was not a generally known idea that Chester was going to make the picture. But she found she couldn't do it. Somehow it wasn't quite honest and, even while she realized that, a small regret was haggling at the back of her mind as she thought of how she had managed the business of meeting Chester for just this or.o reason. But she couldn't do it when she realized that the man silling across the table from her was enjoying himself, content in the belief that it was his company that gave her pleasure. She realized that he liked her. She found herself telling him about the books she had read before she came to California, the books she had discovered in the p u b l i c " library. Biographies and books on strange arts and crafts, old novels, revealing philosophies. "How did you find time to read these things'.'" he asked interestedly. And there was Janet telling him how empty her life had been during those months. No not empty, for as she told him about her lonely hours, her eyes told him ot her love for Joel. Janet didn't know how revealing she was. Naturally, from talking o£ the hooks that she and Joel had read together, Janet began to talk of Joel. To tell Chester what he had done in the theater, of his ambitions. Chester thought: I'll look this boy up and see what he's got that's goad enough for that girl. Chester and Janet became friends. He dropped into the little English house one afternoon quite unexpectedly. He marched around the room looking at the prints, lie; thumbed through the music on Janet's piano. He picked up a book on her reading table. It war. a copy ot "The Dance Was Long It was a marked copy; bits o' pink paper stuck out u n t i d i l y from its pages, pages where the character, Jan, was the center of the situation. H e ' h e l d the book in his hand and gave Janet a queslioning glance. His meaning was plain. There was no reason why Janet should have felt her face flush. She hadn't expected him to stop by her house with a racquet he had had restmng for her. Shs hadn't marked the book for him to see. Nevertheless, she flushed because now the news was all over the picture colony that the east was being selected for "The Dance Was Long." She flushed but nevertheless she did not answer the question until he asked her. And then she answered honestly. She said, "Joel and I have been reading it. We knew that it was bei!)£ cast and we knew t h a t Joel could play Jan if he had a chance to do it." Vernon Chester sighed: So this was w h a t she wanted.

Then: "Maybe he doesn't, but he's a lucky man lo have you, Mrs. Paynter." He left in a few mirmles and w e n t d i r e c t l y to the studio.
