FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 10 ·§ 1937 HOG PRICES CONTINUE TO DECLINE CATTLE STRONG TO 25 CENTS UP Swine Market Shade to 1C Cents Lower With Top 5 Cents Off. 'CHICAGO, (/P)--Hog prices continued to decline Wednesday as supplies expanded but cattle values rose 25 cents in some cases, erasing losses sustained earlier in the week. .' Traders said cattle prices were again at the winter's peak level, with average price around the highest in a year and a hall and top the highest in 13 months. They said the market showed little ability to rise above this "ceiling" which has been touched several times in the past few months largely because cattle slaughter continued heavy and the condition o£ the dressed trade was comparatively sluggish. The strong to 25 cents higher tone of the steer and yearling trade market permitted the sale of several loads of choice and prime beeves to shippers at S13.75 to $14.35. Early bids for top cattle were S14.50. The bulk ol the crop sold from S9.50 to S13. Hogs were a shade to 10 cents lower. Top declined 5 cents .to $10.25. Increased numbers, with receipts bulking 5,000 head above expectations, and further weakness-in the dressed pork trade contributed to the decline. Top pork 2oins lost V- cent a pound wholesale. The lamb trade was very slow because of the difference between sellers' and buyers' price ideas. They held the best lambs at SH and above but early bids were 25 cents lower at the top.

The crash occurred near Baguio Tuesday night. STOCK LEADERS HIT NEW PEAKS U. S. Steel Crosses $104 a Share First Time in Five Years. NEW YORK, (IP)--Broad buying demand lifted stock market leaders to new recovery peaks Wednesday. Paced by U. S. Steel, which crossed $104 a share for the first time in more than five years, gains of fractions to three points were recorded for many issues. Utilities pointed the way at the opening and, for a while, the ticker tape was unable to keep up with floor dealings. Extreme gains were reduced in numerous in- stanices later and there was an assortment of losers near the final hour. The volume dwindled in the afternoon. Transfers were around 2,700,000 shares. The power group responded to the action of two important corporations in announcing a truce with the securities and exchange commission. Heavy industry stocks reflected indications of steadily improving business. Even General Motors took a new lease on life with a modest upturn as hopes o£ strike settlement brightened. Chrysler was a strong spot along with a variety of truck company issues. Curb Market NEW YORK. (/P)--Prices advanced briskly in the c u r b market Wednesday as utilities and specialties Jound ready buyers. Industrial shares also came In for considerable demand lale in Ihe morning. Among the gainers o£ 2 points or more were National Oil Products, New Haven Cloek, Commonwealth Edison and Aluminum Co. oE America. Threw Shovel was among tlic more buoyant industrials and added 3 points or so. New Jersey Zinc ran up nearly 2 points following release of increased earnings for 193G. Red Bank Oil. Stroock : Co., and J. W. Carter were other proportionately wide gnincrs. In the electric power company lict, Eleclrtc Bond «i Share, Northern Stales Power "A.", American Gas Elcclilc and Niagara Hudson Power were forward fractions to a point or more. Bond Market NEW YORK. (.^j-Ulilily, steel and rubber company loans moved into a lilllc higher Rround in the bond market Wednesday \vhi!e rails and some oils and specialties were a btt lower. American i: Foreign Power ns were up nearly a point, and Colorado Gas Electric Hs, International Hydro-Electric Cs and International Paper 5s moved lor- ivard fractionally'. . OIKer modest satners were Studcbakcr Convertible 6s. Goodyear 5s. Bethlehem Steel 3 a ,iK, and Anaconda -His, Sanln Fc -Is receded following offering; of an equipment trust issue, and Chesapeake Ohio 4Vis, SI.

An exception was in the 251: per cent issue of 1349, which added a shade. South American obligations were in fair demand, and some loans added nearly a point. Gainers included Brazil 6,is. Buenos Aires Vi-lis. Cuba S'.is and Peru 6s. Some Polish. Italian and German bonds moved upward. Produce MASON CITY--For Wednesday Cash Quotations by E. G.

Meanwhile Janet makes a point of cultivating the right people, joins a tennis club anil meets Vcrnon Chester, an important director. Chester asks her to play tennis and have lunch with him. Chester likes Janet and ·learns inadvertently that she and Joel have been reading a bestseller about to he screened by Chester^ Chester selects Joel for an important character role in his new picture and Janet virtually dictates the terms of an attractive new contract and option. Joel makes screen history in "The Dance ^Vas Lons" and the Paj:n- tcrs find Tame and fortune at their feet within eight months. Now Go On IVith the Story. CHAPTER 17. Janet looked up from the letter she was reading. The view that spread itself before, her eyes was less entrancing than the one the letter brought to her mind. The rolling lawns where Toki was running an electric lawnmower faded from her view. The colorful flowers had too long been colorful in the unending bright light of the sun. That same sun drenched the ten-act with its wicker furniture and boxed hedges as it had done day in and day out. The leaves were beginning to turn, Martha had written. Janet saw the peaceful countryside of the New England village of Chester. She saw the riot of red and yellow and last-turning green." She thought she smelled the pungent odor of burning leaves sending a feathery plume high, to dissolve against a graying sky. There would be the smell ot late asters and the cideryscent of apples on the air. There would be wood smoke rising from the chimneys of the little white :ouses. And within there would good things simmering on the stove--peppei-y chili and jellies and jams. Janet wondered if she still remembered how to pickle grapes. She thought if she drove through .he market that day she would buy some and try her old recipe. Then she sighed, lying there in ler expensive pajamas on a chaise onge. Cook wouldn't like it if she mussed up the kitchen. She could, of course, muss it up all she pleased. But it really wouldn't be any fun because she didn't feel that the kitchen belonged to her anyway and cooli would probably leave. Coks wera always leaving and taking the serving maid with them. "Now a butler would really run the place," Joel had said when she had protested that it was ridiculous for them to have a butler. "But I want to run it," she had said rather pathetically. Joel had laughed. "Why, you goose? Just keep yourself pretty Eor me and help me do my entertaining. You ought to be glad we aren't living back on the west side in New York." "But I have nothing to do," she bad persisted. "You are a lily of the field now," he answered and that was that. Another day Lucien Doyle's wife ·--Dot was another lily o£ the field, in fact so were the other two girls at Janet's table at the .'charity bridge--said, "Janet, don't you ever get bored with Hollywood?

I've been out here so long I've forgotten what the girls used to talk about back home." i Linda Appleby said, "Instead of talking about what picture so-and- so is making, they talk about the new dress they saw or what Mrs. You-know-who said at the forum meeting last week and whose husband got drunk at the country club party on Saturday night." Grace Tucker sighed, "Our husbands can't even get drunk because it's against the rules! Sometimes I think it would be a good idea if we could talk about those things but new dresses are no novelty in our lives. What do you say, Jgnet?" Janet said, "I dont really know, girls, about wives back east, but I guess .wives are the same everywhere. They want to talk about their husbands and children and I guess it could be just as dull to talk about the coal business or Wall Street." "Who's talking about Wall Street?" Harriet Casey said as she strolled toward their table. Harriet was a newspaper woman, west coast representative of a string of newspapers. "Oh, we're just talking about our husbands and children for a change," Dot Doyle said. "Well, well, girlsJ" Harriet exclaimed brightly. "Do I scent news? Who has any children here?" "Well, if we haven't we're going to have," Janet said idly. "Wkv bid three hearts?" Janet was dummy. She was glad she didn't have to concentrate. The conversation had somehow made her Csel depressed. She thought of the busy, stimulating years when she had had a job. And she had had one when she and Joel first came to Hollywood. Joel had been her job and she had done it well, but now he had no further need of those services he hadn't even known about. Harriet Casey leaned over to her and whispered, "I want to talk to you, Mrs. Paynter. Did you mean what you said?" Janet said, "Excuse me, Linda, but didn't you play a club on that last trick? You did have a heart in your hand . . . " she turned back to Harriet who had said something to her. "Yes," she answered not remembering what the question had been. Someone called to Harriet then and she left giving Janet a little pat on the back. Janet said, "This gives us the rubber, partner." She thought no more about the conversation. The netx afternoon Joel had asked her to meet him at his tailor's. They were going from there straight to dinner at a restaurant and to view a picture at one of the smaller houses. Janet liked those "dates." Joel had made a little game of calling her on the phone and asking her, if she didn't have a date, if he could have one with her. Those were the little things about Joel that delighted Janet. He was her "beau" and she was his "best girl." "But beaux don't give their girls ermine capes. At least, not in Chester, darling," she had said on that occasion and Joel had got in the car and driven to a dusty drug store where he had bought her a large box of stale chocolates which he presented to her with a flourish. "I'm not to be outdone by the beaux in Chester," he said. He made a wonderful beau and a very good husband, she thought, even if she had never felt like a wife. What was that Martha had said to her years ago about the "good, quiet years?" She knew well enough and she hoped that some day they would come even though she couldn't put her finger on what was wrong with their marriage. "There is nothing wrong with our marriage!" She protested stoutly and thought that the only thing that was wrong with it was that she wasn't contented. And because she wasn't contented, she was an ungrateful girl. There was Joel to give her the moon if she asked for it. "And therein was her trouble. She didn't want the moon. She wanted a little home. She wanted to go to market in the morning and chatter with other women. She wanted to know what was in her ice box. She actually wanted to clean out that ice box. Sometimes, seeing other girls like--and yet not like--herself in the market, she thought: Marriage is an estate and that is what 1 haven't got. It's a nameless feeling of being enclosed in that state. That's why it is called an estate. It's something that you don't see but you feel it when you are building something with another person. It's the feeling of being Mrs. to somebody's Mr. It's a feeling of being part of a man's life. I know --oil, .1 know I am part of Joel's but I'm not necessary lo him or to anyone else." To do Janet justice, it must be said that she did not think these things too often. She wasn't thinking of anything unhappy or disquieting when her chauffeur drew up before the English Tailoring House. N Joel saw her the moment she entered the door. His face was pale and his eyes were angry as he came up to her. He thrust a newspaper into her hands. "Read that, Janet, and explain It please," he said. "Darling," she said, "You look terribly upset!" "I am," he answered, "I'd like to know why you didn't consult me about this!" "'This' what?" Janet answered calmly and started to rend.
