1 *Hi^.*Iiffi£srfr^ FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 13 M 1937 HOGS UNCHANGED TO DIME LOWER QUOTE CHICAGO TOP AT $10,35 Increasing Receipts Coming at Start of Lent Leads to Decline. · CHICAGO, (if) -- Hog prices were unchanged to 10 cents lower at ihe week's decliiie Saturday. Quotable top was $10.35, but.the best prices paid were S10-20 to $10.25 for mediumweights. A combination o£ factors added pressure to the livestock markets this week but prices held up fairly well anyway. In the first place, receipts increased slightly in all departments not only in .Chicago 'but at most o£ the other principal markets. The local run o£ cattle was approximately 7,000 head larger and the sheep and hog runs increased 11,000 and 12,000, respectively. Trade Alreafly Sluggisli. The market was in no condition to accept increased volume. Start of the Lenten season, which always has some ellect on. meal consumption, coincided with an aleady sluggish trade at some distributing points. In this connection, easing of the floor situation and settlement of the motor strike were the two most important factors working for a broadening of meat demand. Official figures also disclosed that the meat supply in coolers throughout the country is the largest for this time of .year since 1920. Pork storing has been so great in the last three months that total supplies have more than doubled. .The supply ol pork is the largest since September, 1933. Price Movement Uneven. Variations in supply, coupled with the above mentioned market factors, resulted in an uneven and mixed price movement in livestock during the week. Choice and prime steers arid yearlings were little changed, with weighty lands up 25 cents in instances, some medium and good beeves turned lower. .The cattle market top stayed at $14.50, which was paid early in the week. Some she stock sold on a 25 cents higher basis. Fat lambs lost 50 cents, the late top declining lo $10.45 compared with Sil at the start of the week. Hogs were unchanged to 25 cents lower for the week. Local Livestock H1ASON CITY--I'or Saturday 1IOGS Five ccnls lower. Good lisht HUMS ... 1JO-1SO ? 7.40- 7.70 Good Hsht lights ...

RALLY IN STEEL PEPS UP STOCKS Motors, Other Industrial Shares Join Advance in Late Trade. NEW YORK, (IP)-- A rally in steel and other industrial favorites after an early drop pepped up the stock market near the end of the second half of the short week-end session Saturday. U. S. Steel recovered most of Ihe decline which ran to more than 2 points at one time and other steels, motors and miscellaneous ndustrial shares rallied with it. But buying on the whole was selective and lacked the drive of recent sessions. In most sections orices were highly mixed. Transfers approximated 1.300,000 shares. As attention shifted from the eneral Motors strike settlement to a wage increased demand from steel workers in the Pittsburgh district, traders turned to merchandise, oil and chemical stocks for .more action on the upside.' Bulls found little inspiration in the leading commodity markets, where prices tended lower, and high-grade corporate bonds continued to wilt with If. S. treasury issues. . Up fractions to more than 2 points were such shares as Standard of New Jersey, Texas Corp., Du Pont, Montgomery Ward, Sears Roebuck, Johns Manville and Lowes. On the down side, with losses ranging to more than a point, were Chrysler; General Motors, Bethlehem, National Steel, J. I. Case, consolidated Edison and American Can. Curb Market NEW YORK. M"j--The curb market followed an uneven trail satxirday, with industrial specialties attracting a major share of the buying interest. Advances ranged from 1 to 2 points in National Gypsum "A." Ryerson and Haynes. Sullivan Machine, Thew shovel and Tubizc Chatillon. Oils and utilities were narrow, the for- Jner showing a few small cains. Aluminum company of America and Mont- Bomery Ward "A." gave u p about 2 each. Sherwin Williams. Wayne Pump. Electric Bond and Share. Utilities Light and Power "A" \vcre down fractions to around a point. Bond Market NEW YOflK, f.^j--Showing little change 'rom its pre-holiday form, the bond mar- ·cet Saturday rehialned in a compara- Jvcly narrow and uneven range. Some of the low yield issues continued to back away from recent record seaks, with losses · ranging from ','« Lo around l .'i point. U.

DflYTHOTI FORGET /^ i READ THIS FIRST: 111 Hollywood following an ill- genius maneuver on the ' part of Ills young wife, Janet, Joel Paynter, second-rate Broadway actor, makes screen history In the course of eight months. Fame and fortune are theirs following one outstanding picture in which Joel plays an important character pari. He obtained the role because Janet cultivated the right people and Vernon Chester, a leading director. Denied a baby because the studio frowns on domestic notes in building up Joel as the popular American lover, Janet finds happiness eluding her, despite everything money can buy, because she has nothing more to do. Janet discovers that $3,000 a week melts rapidly living as they now do. After buying a small group theater in Cape Cod as a lark, Joel promptly forgets p.bout it. Now Go on With the Story had bought-the expensive clothes and become a regular client of the most famed beautician in Hollywood. All that these things did for her was to bring out the small proportioned perfection of her figure and to groom her beautifully. Janet developed a beauty within herself. U began with what was in her heart. It softened her maturing in her late twenties. It gave her a repose that' shone in her eyes. Her humor and understanding gave a sweetness to her generous mouth. Because her role was a secondary one, she had learned quiet and poise. Combined, these qualities took her far from the position and classification of a plain girl. It was indicative of everything about Janet Paynter that she would have believed none of these things .had you told her about them. There Is a repose in women that, comes, not only from security, but CHAPTER 20. from trust and faith. Janet had Once Joel had written his check b °th faith and trust in Joel. Ad- Tor Lon Hutchin's theater in Grannis, he forgot about it. It was no more than writing a check for the station wagon. Oh, yes, there was another car in the garage now because guests and servants had to be.transported here and there. Janet didn't protest at the expenditure. She was learning, however, not to accept the fact that they "have to have th is, dearest, because in the end it will save us money." If Joel had forgotten it, Janet hadn't. She played with the idea and learned as much as she could about it. She had so little else to do. Joel was working hard at being America's First Lover. His box ot- fice returns were tremendous and the studio's demands to know more and more about him left little time for his wife. A New York newspaper and 1,400 other daily newspapers ai- over the country were running his life story. Janet marveled at the items the writers dug up. She thought it was rather a strange way for a. wife to learn about her husband. Joel had been the son of a river boat gambler and an aristocratic mother. At least that was what the newspapers said. They also said that he had a private tutor in the mansion that had been his child- iiood home. Another paper said that he was (he son of a wealthy ranch owner and had run away 'rom home when he was a child jecause he wanted to be a portrait painter. Another paper flatly denied it, saying that he had worked as a waiter in an effort to earn enough money to study medicine. There were pictures of-Joel at every conceivable place. His diet was a matter of public concern. The cut of his lounging suits was copied by every movie-going youth in the country. Breathless school girls began to look with disapproval at the neat, slicked iiair of their boy friends. Joel Paynter's hair was always softly tousled. Jusc look at the billboards. If you don't see a picture 'of him there bigger than life, you're sure to see it on at least two of the fan magazines on every newsstand. And if you'll open those magazines you'll read the most intimate details about him. You'll learn that he likes luxuries because he never has had them. Or, if you read another, you'll find that he prefers the simple life. There will surely be an article telling you that, quite frankly, he says he enjoys the company of women--that they stimulate him. Well, we can't help it it a rival fan magazine says that he prefers the company of men and that his favorite sport is skeet shooting- in company of his cronies, Tony Me- none, the famous comic, or Larry Kelton, who plays detective roles. You will not find a single article that says that he prefers his wife to any other woman in the world or that he has an adorable habit of pretending that he is sitting in her lap when he has troubles. You will find very little about Mrs. Paynter. The studio takes care of that . The final test of personality is to search for your wife's lor.t glove under the feet of other movie patrons and not get slapped. --Oklahoma City Oklahomari. little matter. But in spite of all the studic could do, Joel Paynter refused to go to an opening, to a party without Mrs. Paynter or to go with any other woman star.' Mr. Paynter was adamant on that subject. Janet didn't even know that. Janet knew that the romantic buildup o£ Joel was inevitable and inescapable. It was "box office" and had nothing personal or dan- gereus in it. Let the school girls write their heart secrets to him. Let the shameless wives bear their passion for him on paper. Some of the letters came written illegibly on lined paper and some of them came on heavy white linen. The buildup had worked. Women were mad about Joel Paynter. He~was a he-man with wjstfulness, an unbeatable combination. He made screen history. No matinee idol of another day had ever touched his heights. Janet took it with a grain ol salt. She read the magazines and press scrapbooks that Joel tossed toward her. But she read them only when he was there. It sickened her a little to read that her man belonged to the public. It wasn't really her man who did. it was a shadow man on a screen. Let the public have that man. Her man was still the same one who had always needed her. Needed her long before she came into his lonely life. It was turmy when you think of it that a man who could bring the hearts of the world of women to his feet could need plain, little Janet. But Janet wasn't the p l a i n little girl she thought herself. She didn't have glamor, even after she ulation could not change him or his love for her. Success could not turn his head or affect his feeling for her. She recognized the ever-present possibility in every marriage that Joel could tire of her and for that reason she bent her efforts to b'e necessary to him. But for no other reason. And so, when Joel proposed that she go east without him that summer, she was glad to go. She thought the vacation would be good for both of them. She would have preferred that Joel could go with her but he was working on one picture immediately he finished his last one and he had little time. She protested faintly when he pointed out that she had been long away and Martha Colby had written that she longed to see Janet. He also pointed out that Janet and Martha could take a trip up to the Cape and look over the little theater at Grannis. The little theater had been a great joke. The manager had written glowingly of the season. The first week the net proceeds had exceeded $165! That day Joel had paid $200 for a tweed suit. He thought it was very funny. "It might be a very good idea for me to see our property," Janet responded and sent a wire to Martha to meet her train in New York · and be prepared to go on to Cape Cod immediately. When she packed, she was torn between anticipation such as she had not remembered, and regret at leaving Joel. "Don't get into any mischief, dear," she begged and couldn't see him for the blur in front of her eyes when the train pulled out. "Just remember you're my best girl and I'll count the days until you're back," Joel called after her Janet knew that but, before her train was half way across the country, the newspapers had a different story. (To Be Continued) Enjoy Singing Before High School Assembly "We always enjoy singing before high school students because they make intelligent, alert audiences " declared William Davies, head of the Davies light opera company which appeared in an assembly. "America loads the world in the field of light opera. Light opera differs from grand opera in that its music is in a lighter vein and it has dialog and a different style of delivery. However, a new type of opera is arising in the form of the American, folk opera. George Gershwin is the leader in this musical field. "In a high school production of an operetta the instructor is the essential factor. A capable director and a not so talented cast will produce a better operetta than if the situation were reversed. It is no longer necessary to go abroad to train for opera. The best teachers and singers are here in America." Since its organization in 1929, the Davies company has toured the nation several times, giving over 2,000 performances and traveling a total of nearly 250,000 miles. The company presents a variety o£ selections from typical American light operas.--I. L., J. M. Elect Farm Bureau .
