FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 15 · 1937 J SLIGHT EXPANSIONS CAUSE CHANGE PACKERS HAVE HEAVY STOCKS Jvade Basically Unsteady During Lenten Season, Hogs Lose Dime. CHICAGO, (/P)--The slightest expansion in livestock supplies, even though expected by traders, caused price reactions at the stockyards Monday. Livestock men said this indicated the basic unreliability of the trade during the lenten season. Aside from the fact that the movement of meat in consumer channels is not as satisfactory as it might be, packers have the largest volume, of meat in coolers for any corresponding date in. 17 years. . The hog and cattle runs were right in line with advance estimates but were larger than a year ago when extremely cold weather hindered marketing. Hogs lost 10 cents, with plain lightweights declining more in instances. The top sank to $10.30. The cattle trade had a prospective 25 cents decline in view although a small supply of strictly choice and prime beeves moved at steady values. The top for these was $14.50, matching the peaks established for several weeks past. The bulk of the steers were quoted from S8.25 to $12; The sheep run was less than half the expected volume. Because of this, lambs showed some strength although the market looked about steady to many traders. They were holding best lambs upward from C - t n OS , . .

Beef carcasses were quoted at 10 to 19 cents a pound, unchanged since mid-January. Pork loins had a 16 to 19 cents range.

Fame and fortune are theirs following one outstanding picture in which Joel plays an important character part. He obtained the role because Janet cultivated the rigrlil people ami 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 53,000 a week melts rapidly living as they now do. After bu^iri^ a small group theater in Cape Cod as a lark, Joel promptly forgets about it. Janet goes east alone for a visit.

A lew issues pushed up half-heartedly for fractional advances, but institutional investing appeared still hesitant and buying desire was liltle in evidence. Traders said presence of n number ot undigested issues, imminence of tho government's March financing, and pi e- occupatioti with railroad equipment trtist is sties, a nu mbcr o f which ha ve been offered recently, had operated to sJow down movement iti the corporate field. Gainers included Southern Railway 4s, New York, Chicago and St. Louis 4 ! / : js, American Telephone ItHs, Western Union Hs and International Hydro-Electric Es. On the losing side were Pure Oil Con- v e r t i b l e 4V*s, which sagged around 4 points foUawiHE reports of a new convertible preferred issue in prospect. Others to slip included Youngslowii Sheet and Tnbc 3 Via, Chesapeake and Ohio 4ViS, Great Not thorn 4s. Anaconda 4',2S and Utilities Power and Light 5s. Lack ot interest was also manifest among U. S. government loans, where variations were small. The Treasury 27«s of 1955-Gn added a trifle, as did the Home Owners Loan 3s ol 1352. while on the down side were Treasury 2^is of 1955 and Ihe Home Owners Loan. 2^is of 1943.

"You mean she actually went away and left the gorgeous Joel alone in Hollywood?" Laughter. "He wouldn*t be alone anywhere. If he were my husband I'd never go as far away from him. Why did she? I thought they were filmland's famous devoted couple." "Nobody knows why she went." Business of shrugging shoulders. "But, after all, she couldn't expect to hold him forever. She's hardly in his class." "Somebody told me that she had a lot of money. Was a debutante in New York and he hadn't a red cent when he was a chorus boy and they were married." "Well, it's all over now, I guess." "Who do you suppose will be the next one?" "I'd put my money on Care) Griest. She doesn't care whom she tells that she refuses to make another picture for Modern Century u n t i l they borrow Paynter to play opposite her." "You know, he has kept the record pretty clean. Paynter, I mean. You never see him at any public affair that he isn't with Janet. And I think she's cute." "Cute? She's smart but' she's quiet as a little mouse. I must say 1 can't see what he sees in her. She must have had money. Anyway, she's gone back east like most of the girls who can't stand the gaff of having a handsome husband that 20 million women rave about." Janet Paynter, one short day out of Hollywood, sitting serenely in the depths of a big chair, in the observation car and gazing out over the desert, was unaware of what tongues were wagging over her so soon, 'of what conjecture there was rampant over her departure. It was utterly inconceivable in Hollywood t h a t an idol's wife should go east alone for the simple reason that she desired to see her old friends for a brief few weeks. It had to be a breakup! It either meant that life was intolerable to both o£ them together and the wife was leaving her husband. Or else, it rrieant that they were aware of the fact that they were beginning to bore each other and it was best to try a trial separation. A simple vacation was incredible just because it was simple. All conduct was motivated by emotional reasons in Hollywood and simple facts were not emotional and therefore not understandable-. I£ Janet had been the wife of a young stock broker in New York who suddenly decided to go to for the last hour of her trip. Now that she was far away from the coast and Hearing New York and Martha, she. was beginning to experience a new feeling of anticipation. She had never been truly lonesome since she had known Joel, There had been no wrench for her in leaving the job she had enjoyed, the circle of friends she had had in the days before she was . married. She had left New York with only the slightest pang. But then she had had Joel always at her side. Now she was alone. Every small garment, every appointment in the airplane luggage neatly piled in her drawing room was hers. There were no pipes in her jewel case as there visually were in her joint travels with Joel. Joel's slippers were not to be found, wrapped in her soft chiffons. There would be no box of imported shaving cream crowding out her small crystal jars of cosmetics. Should she open her case suddenly, no neckties, no discarded shirts would tumble out. Janet felt strangely lonesome for those things even while she first began to enjoy the feeling of being a complete entity. She was not really a Mrs. Paynter. She was Janet Paynter. She was a lady traveling alone with every minute of her time belonging to herself. She could do exactly, as she pleased. If her feet were tired, she didn't have to stand on them and pretend to feel fresh as a daisy or have them walked over at a night club. She didn't have to push her way through mobs of people with outstretched hands begging for autographs. People wouldn't turn to look at her in the streets and she could turn and look at as many people as she wanted to. If she wanted to buy a five-dcl- lar hat, no salesgirl would say, "But Moddom, you wouldn't be interested in that." Not Mrs. Joel Paynter. She was free of the price she had to pay for being with her celebrated husband. She was free to curl up for hours to listen to Martha talk. To hear about the shiftless Harri- gans who'd never done a lick of work in their lives but paid for their maintenance in Chester with the humorous doings of their brood of children. To hear about the new young doctor who was young to Chester even though he was 50. To hear about the changes in the church board. To hear all the tilings that would be music to her ears after the tiresome, repetitious gossip of Hollywood. Not to hear a word about "the picture I'm making." At least she would be free, H.

WOOL MARKET. BOSTON, Wt--U. S. department of agriculture-- A waiting attitude prevailed Generally in the Boston wool market Monday. Few Inquiries were being received for domestic wool, and holders, on the olher hand, were not making an effort to move spot wools. Asking prices on spot domestic -wools were unchanged from last week. An occasional house was showing a willingness to make slight concessions from their asking prices in view of the quiet demand and (lie Jrrcgijiar price tendency abroad.

But scarcely had the first word been out that Janet Paynter was eastward-bound, than the tongues began to wag, the scribes to swing into action and all the forces of the publicity machinery to move. It buzzed on telephones and in telegraph offices. Before Janet had arrived in Albuquerque, the movie-going, newspaper reading public knew that Janet Paynter was on her way east without her husband. The inference was plain. The Paynters were going to split up. Janet didn't know that. That anything she did could- be of any interest to the public was beyond her comprehension. When the usual phalanx of news reporters met the Century on arrival in Chicago, and sought her out, she thought it extremely odd and decided it must have been because there were no stars traveling on the same train. They asked her the most personal questions about Joel and her marriage. Long schooled in the art of keeping in the background, Janet merelysmiled or said "It's ridiculous," or "I haven't the least idea w h a t you're talking about." She was willing to talk about everything except her marriage or i Joel. She was always careful about those two subjects. Janet had began to realize that U'hat the studio wanted her to say and do was important. She didn't take the questions ot the reporters seriously and there- for when her train from Chicago to New York was boarded by a Mr. Kclcey "of the New York office" at Harmon, 42 miles out of New York, where a steam locomotive IF exchanged for an electric, Janet was a trifle stunned. Mr. Kelcey had been waiting the arrival of the Century impatiently. He was anxious to reach Mrs. Paynter "before the train arrived at Grand Central and she was besieged by reporters." "What on earth would they wont to besiege me for?" Janet asked, considerably annopycd t h a t she had tr endure the company- ot this worried and annoying young man when she got rid of the young Mr! Kelcey who was trying to capture her attention while she packed the things she had been using on the train. · "Er . . . Mrs. Paynter, I'm afraid you'll have to tel the truth so that wel'll know how to meet the press," he was saying amazingly enough. He captured her attention. "The truth? About what? And why would the press meet me?" lie was embarrassed but business-like. "About your separation. What statement do you wish to make regarding leaving Mr. Paynter. They'll ask you about a divorce." "A divorce!" Janet turned a shocked face to him. "What divorce? I haven't left Joel! And I'm not going to! We're as happily married as we always have been. You can tell t h a t to your press. And you can get rid o£ them any way you please but I'll not say one word to them. This trip is my party and the public has nothing to do with it! Now, if you'll excuse me please, I'll finish my packing!" (To Be Continued). NASHUAN DIES FROM INJURIES Simmons, 65, Victim of Auto Collision Near Waverly.
