CHICAGO. 6P)--The movement ol prices in the livestock yards Thursday indicated the market responds to supply conditions more readily than to any other factor in the trade. Traders said receipts apparently - dictated Thursday's modest advance in hogs and rather sharp break in lambs. Bearish influences of the Lenten season and already slow movement of meat at some distributing points added some ot the pressure to the market, however, they said. Another decline in wholesale pork loin Quotations accompanied assertions that the condition ot the wholesale market reflected sluggish movement in retail channels. Some observers expressed hope settlement of the motor strike would stimulate trade to'some ex- lent. Hogs were unchanged to 10 cents higher. The top rose a dime lo 510.35. The market's action opposite to the trend of wholesale pork values was based largely, traders said, oh the fact that receipts were 2,000 head below expectations and 14,000 below a week ago. Lamb traders were deadlocked lor a time because of the wide difference in asking and offering prices. Some bids were 25 to 50 cents lower and prospects were that the bulk of the best lamb would sell around $10.50.- : Most killing cattle moved at un changed prices. Shippers got th Tmlk of the small supply of bes steers, paying a $14.40 top for 1, 207 pound averages.

NEW YORK, (IP)--The General Motors strike truce stimulated a burst of buying in Thursday's stock' market that lilted leaders 1 to 3 or more points, many to peaks for the past several years. Profit selling was not long in making its appearances, however, and extreme advances were reduced or canceled. In the exciting sprint of tlie first hour, the ticker tape for a while was 5 minutes behind. The volume dwindled later nnd, near the final hour, dealings were exceptionally quiet. Transfers were around 3,000,000 shares. Holding sizable portions of their best gains were U. S. Steel, Crucible, National Steel, American Rolling Mill, Briggs Manufacturing, Bendix, Yellow Truck, Goodrich, Sears Roebuck, Macy, Anaconda, Kennecott, American Can, American Telephone, Continental Can, du Pont, General Electric, Lima Locomotive, Westinghouse Airbrake, Santa Fe, Union Pacific, Lackawanna, Montgomery Ward and Westinghouse. Chrysler ran up 3 at the beginning, but dropped back to below its Wednesday's close. The majority of the rails were a shade improved. Utilities were reactionary. In the backward column were Western Union, Consolidated Edison, North American, Electric Power and Light, American Water Works, Columbia Gas, Standard Oil of N. J., J. I. Case, Douglas Aircraft, Standard Oil of N. J., and Texas Corp. Curb Market NEW YORK, IIP)--The curb market responded 1o a bullish demonstration on t h e big board Thursday wElh a sizable list of gains ranging from fractions to around 3 points, embracing most of the leaders and a number of i n a c t i v e specialties.

A CHAPTER 18 THE NEWSPAPER that Joel handed to his wife was folded no that Harriet Casey's gossip column was face up. She read nonchalantly. "Oh, the Tracys have bought Nell's" house," she said, reading down the column. "Go on," Joel said. She read that Joe Clinker, the comedian, had presented his baby- faced leading lady with a diamond ring, and that Myrnita Deland was planing cast for the opening of her picture. Then she saw the item. "The Joel Paynters are going to have a baby! We heard the news from Janet at the charity bridge held yesterday at the home of Christine Doolittle." Janet had to reread the Hem three times before she was sure of what she read. "I'll be darned," she said incredulously. "You'll be darned? What about me?" Janet didn't answer him immediately; she was trying to remember something. Harriet Casey did not often make mistakes and she certainly didn't manufacture her news Hems. Something was beginning to buzz around in the bnck of Janet's mind. What was it that she had been saying when Harriet came over to the table? She remembered Harriet asking her a question rather breathlessly when she was playing her last hand. She had a guilty feeling that she had said something that might have led Harriet to surmise but when she looked up to tell Joel about it, she had time only to whisper, "It isn't true, darling." She might have said more and she might have spared herself the pain she felt stab her quickly when she saw the relief on Joel's face. It was the entrance of Tony Menone and Larry Kelton, two oE Joel's cronies, that interrupted anything else she might have said. She and Joel were not alone again until late that night. Tony insisted on taking them along to a little movie theater twelve miles out of Hollywood where his latest picture was having a sneak preview--that is the preview to see how the public likes the picture before it is released. After that they had lo stop at somebody's house for a night-cap and after that Joel had forgotten Ihe incident once his fears had been dispelled. Public Utility and Industrial Stocks Quoted by A. M.

But Janet had not forgotten, anc in her breast her heart beat will things it had stirred up. Later ; cold fury, a sick disappointmen and a deep resentment was ti cause her lo rebel but never ti speak, for Janet had learned ti school herself against anythin; that would threaten her happines. and the smooth continuity of hei life with Joel. She meant lha conlinuily to continue in spite o all the odds against her. All of he chances were based' on the on slim thing that was Joel's love fo her. And Janet knew that love wa something lhat is not given and left in keeping at will. She sat there in the 'darkened movie, theater with her eyes o: Ihe screen watching Ihe antics n Tony Menone which convulsed the audience, but she couldn't have told you a single thing she saw. She was thinking. If I were going to have a baby, 1 would be so happy that nothing in the work would be real to me but lhat one thing. All of her senses responded to the desire thai filled her. She Ihought of the indescribably delicate texlure of a lillle baby's hand, and her fingers tingled. She thought of the sweet smell of a baby's body and her throat ached with longing. She heard the sigh of a baby and it was a sound so soft it might have been the rustle ot an angel's wing that she alone heard. There in that darkened theater she experienced things she hac never known. Little things that time had passed on to her from generalions she had never known. They were memories lhat had been born in Felicity Burns and in every woman because every woman was once the baby of another woman. M e m o r i e s that make a woman catch her breath as she looks at a sleeping baby because lhat baby is far away from her, so close to the infinity from which it came. In them there was tenderness, oh, the kind of tenderness that be she a poet, she can never put in words. And there was fear and the .ultimate in fulfillment. There was wonder at the past, at her part in the present, nnd the timeless hope of the future. Janet thought of the things she had seen in" the children's shops. The tiny, tiny garments, the soft flannels, the coats and bonnets too beautiful for a doll, but never quite good enough for the miracle a woman's own baby is. In those passing few minutes she had furnished a nursery in blue. It would be in blue because, if course, her baby would be a :oy. He would look exactly like Joel. He'd have long legs for a Jaby because Joel had long legs. He'd have a play yard and none of those with too low fences be- :ause nothing must ever happen :o him. He would have no dangerous toys. Oh, dear, babyhood loomed as a difficult time! Then, when he was big enough to ride a horse, he'd have a lillle riding habit like Joel's. He'd swim and play tennis. Probably he'd play football when he went to college. Joel would want him lo go to college in the east. She and Joel must save their money because there might be another depression and she wasn't going to have her son experience Ihe lean years as her Joel had. Supposing there were a depression and young Joel had a wife? And Janet and Joel were not there to help them? Janet had herself an orgy of thinking there in the theater. In a briefer time than it look to show the Menone picture, Janet had lived the babyhood, childhood and youth of a son she didn't have. A child who wasn't yet, one who had appeared merely in the gossip column of a newspaper. She was worrying over die childhood ills and dangers of a baby she wasn't even having. She laughed a little. Out loud dryly. Menone was sitting at her left. He bent toward her pleased ,;md whispered, "Did you like that gag? I was afraid it didn't go over." She whispered back, "It was a very funny gag, Tony, but I don't think your audience would appreciate it." That night, for the first lime in the two and a half years of her marriage, Janet was thinging of what she wanted and not what was best for Joel. She couldn't remember when she had first considered her wants. Every move, every party, every cultivated friendship in Ihe picture colony-and even back in those six months in New York--had been made for Joel's comfort and Joel's advancement. He hadn't been selfish accepting them. In his way, and his way had been sweet, he had repaid her over and over again with his immediate acceptance of whatever she suggested, with his little devotions and his expensive gifts. Joel would noS now deny her what she wanted more than anything else -in the world. "Darling," she said. "I think I remember now where Harriet got the idea. I did say something about all of us---the girls I mean--having children some day. I didn't mean that I was, but .1 want to. Please, Joel, let's have a baby! We can afford it now!" Joel flung his collar arid tie on her chaise lounge. "That's what you think! We can't! Wertiem sent for me as soon as I got in this morning and flung that column in my face. He laid down the law. No babies for the lime being. He's grooming me for the biggest box office draw in picture history. Your husband, Mrs. Paynter, is the popular American lover. No. domestic notes at this time, please!"
