SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 17 Hj 1937 LIVESTOCK TREND POINTS HIGHER HOGS MOVE UP ON EASY MART Cattle Gain 25 Cents Over Some Classes; Hog Run .' Off 10,000 in Week. CHICAGO, (.P) -- Livestock prices continued to point upward Wednesday after figures on receipts showed supplies still were not up to expectations, particularly in the hog and cattle markets. .Hogs were unchanged to 10 cents higher, the top rising an-, other 5 cents to $10.40. Some heavy butchers showed an even better over night advance. Cattle were unchanged to as much as 25 cents higher although only good' to prime medium weight and heavy steers scored the outside advance. Cattle buyers resisted sharply higher asking prices generally, taking the rank and file at ?8 to 512. Choicest beeves on hand sold up to the .$14.50 top. Vealers' lost another 25 cents. The hog' run, \vhile only 2,000 below expectations, was 10,000 head -Jess than a week ago. The cattle supply also was 2,000 head short of the estimate. There was no noticeable improvement in the dressed meat ... trade, however. Beef carcass and pork loin' wholesale quotations were virtually unchanged. "The lamb market was under pressure from buying interests that were bidding unevenly lower most of the session. · · · Local Livestock FERMENTED MALT LIQUORS AND DISTILLED SPIRITS MALT LIQUORS MILLIONS OF SBLS.

GETS 10 YEARS FOR CAR THEFT Clarence Blakesley, Local Youth, Sentenced to Reformatory. Judge T. A. Beardmore Wednesday sentenced Clarence Blakesley, 18 year old Mason City youth, to serve 10 years in the men's reformatory at Anamosa on a plea of guilty to County Attorney M. L. Mason's information charging him with larceny of a motor vehicle. Blakesley, with two 16 year old local -youths who have already been committed to the boys' training school, admitted taking or aiding in taking eight automobiles in and around Mason City. They also confessed to pilfering various articles from several other cars. The trio was apprehended by Mason City police, to whom they made their admissions. Mortgage Foreclosures Were Lower in 1936 Mortgage foreclosures in the year 1936 were lower t h a n for any twelve-month since 1330, the federal home loan bank board announced on the basis of its annual averages index. The indices, calibrated on 1926 as 100 per cent, give 274 for 1S36 and 235 for'1930. The main figure of 366 for 1935 compares with 370 for 1934, 3S5 for 1933, 382 for 1932, and 300 for 1931. On a monthly basis, the index- increased from 235 in November to 268 in December, 1936, but foreclosures last December were 12 per cent lower than those in the corresponding 1935 month. The rise in the December, 1936, foreclosure index over t h a t of November was attributed to sharp increases in the large cities of New England, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Elsewhere in the country, December foreclosures were practically the same as in November. iSfovc From Farm.

READ THIS FIRST: In Hollywood following; an tn- ffonious maneuver on the part of his young wife, Janet, Joel Tayn- ler, second-rate Broadway actor, makes screen history In the course of eight months. Fame and fortune are theirs following one outstanding picture in which Joe! plays an important character part. 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 rapily living as they now do. After buying a. smalt group theater in Cape Cod as a lark, Joel promptly forgets about it. Janet goes east alone for a visit. Because Joel is not with her, by the time Janet has reached New York, it Is widely rumored that a divorce was Imminent. Janet and Martha, an old friend, go to -Cape Cod to see the Little Theater and stop with Mary Carlefon, wardrobe mistress and scenic designer of the theater. NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY CHAPTER 23 . Mary Carleton licked the edge of the knife with which she had been frosting a cake. She looked at the clock and calculated whether she had time to make her potato salad. She had to stop at the Berwicks and pick up a high-boy for the set in the second act and she had promised little Mary Is nurse that she would run up the new sun suit on the sewing machine. She decided to let the salad go. Then she decided to let the sun suit go. It wasn't every day that a girl had a guest who was the wife o£ a screen sensation. Slicing the potatoes, she looked at her hands regretfully. They weren't any lilies, she reflected, and thought oE the creams and lotions on Janet's dressing table. She thought of Janet and all the other things Janet had. The lovely simple sports things, the soft cashmere sweaters, the white coat with the great collar of white fox, the clever little evening clothes. She tried to picture the house in Beverly Hills over which .Tanet was mistress. She tried to picture the furniture, the servants, the rugs and paintings but all she could think of was that there was money to pay for all those things. Money--the thing that separated her and her Leslie every winter. She sighed with envy. Dettly she swished the dressing ingredients around in a wooden bowl while visions floated before her eyes. Visions of herself, Mrs. Carleton, shopping on Hollywood boulevard, selecting smart little sports things with never an anxious glance toward the price tag. Visions of Mrs. Carleton in silver fox sweeping through lines of curious gapers at a Hollywood opening. Lucky, lucky Mrs. Paynter! Mrs. Paynter was a lamb. There were no airs, no pretenses about her. Mrs. Paynter had offered to stay with the baby when nurse had had to go to the dentist. Mrs. Paynter insisted on making the beds in the morning and helping with the supper dishes. And she seemed to like it. Mrs. Paynter, who had only to touch a button in her own house and have servants bursting out of all the doors to wait on her! Well, women were funny. Mary picked up the mixed salad and put it in the ice box. Janet folded the corner of her bedspread the way that her father had taught her to do it, as it was done in a hospital. She surveyed the placement of the pillows critically, pufted one a little higher and regarded her work. Martha sat in a wicker rocking chair and watched her. When Janet turned toward her, she would have masked the pity in her eyes. Janet didn't look at her. She went out into the hall and came back with a long-handled dust brush and worked hard for the next few minutes searching tor non-existent dust. "Don't you think we- should have some fresh flowers?" she asked, and looked toward the bright sweet peas in the little china holder. Martha said yes, she thought so. She knew that Janet wanted an excuse to go down to the garden and pick the flowers. She knew that Janet wanted to go to the market and buy a chicken [or their dinner. She knew t h a t Janet wanted to scrub the floors. She knew that Janet was playing house. That 'all the things her money had deprived her of, she was f i n d i n g by proxy in the home of another woman. And it made her heart ache. There was nothing Hint she could say. Slie f r i e d once to sound out Janet on her domestic life but .Tanet, fierce in her loyalty to Joel, would tell her nothing except tn touch upon the beauty of aer home and the competence with which it was run and how much Joel liked it. · "Why don't you and Joel get a little place back here?" she said on another occasion. "Then you would have it for a place to come to on your vacations." She didn't say i i was a place where Janet could come to be herself. Janet explained t h a t the studio didn". want them to have ties so far away from California. So much was expected of them, she said vaguely. And all that Martha could do was hope that J a n e t could be inveifilfict caul to see'her. Now t h a t she had her, she d i d n ' t w a n t her to go back to (he coast. Janet was the only affection that Marlh-i had and jshc hnrf a moth- er's heart for the girl, Janet had said she was going to stay only a fortnight but Joel, in his vague letters, had insisted that she stay on. He was not as impressed with the little theater as Janet had hoped Jie would be, but he was glad that she was enjoying herself and urged her to stay. At first his letters had been filled with little things that were lover- like. Little things about his missing her. He had nothing to do, he complained. He was doing a bit of swimming, had played bridge a few evenings and missed her like the devil. Then the letters had grown shorter, duller. This or that had happened at the studio. Toki had run the station wagon into the side of the garage and it was being fixed. He was thinking of putting a drive in back of the garage so that service cars Wouldn't have to use the-front drive. Was their bill at the fruiterer's 5112 or $212? . He couldn't find his sapphire studs. Why didn't she tell him he had no more blue shirts? Somebody wanted, to know if she were going to join the new French class started by one of the wives of a French star. He had gone down to Malibu to a party given by Carol Griest. He was assigned to play opposite the red-headed star in her next picture and he had gone down to talk it over. Vernon Chester was going to direct and he and Vernon had taken Carol to the boxing bouts the night before. They were the usual letters of any husband. They brought Janet back to him but not to Hollywood. That was something that she would have to do but she prolonged her visit because she did not want to end the peace and joy of this make-believe existence she was enjoying. ' I "Who's Carol Griest?" Martha asked her one day. Martha was reading a newspaper. "Good heavens, darling! Do you mean you haven't heard of the Glamorous One? She's a siren on the screen. The new school of sirens, Martha. She has humor and is, according to the magazines, a home-loi'ing girl. Why?" Martha said, "Oh, I just wondered." Then she took the news-' paper downstairs and burned it in the fireplace. Glamorous siren, was she? Well she didn't have anything her bairn' hadn t. Janet was to hear more of Carol Griest. Lisa Carey wrote her Lisa wrote frequently. Little disjointed notes of life in the picture colony and much in the manner of the columnists. ". . . when Bert and I went to the push at Plovers--you'd have hated it because you couldn't cut the air what with heavy perfume --imagine my surprise to see Joel! Griest acts as if she owns him, the ittle fool. We're getting a great laugh out of her performance. The gal is a hussy and stupid in the bargain. Everybody knows that JOEL adores you." Janet read that letter over and over again and decided to forget about its implications. Then. Joel wired her "COME HOME AT ONCE STOP I NEED YOU AND I LOVE YOU STOP KEEP THAT IN MIND AND PAY NO ATTENTION TO SILLY RUMORS STOP WIRE IMMEDIATELY WHEN YOU ARE LEAVING LOVE." TO BE CONTINUED Dixie Route Trains Back Into Service Announcement is made by E. H. Batchelder, g e n e r a l passenger agent of the Chicago and Eastern Illinois railway, that all Dixie route trains, temporarily discontinued because of flood conditions in the Ohio valley, have been restored to their normal schedules and route. The Dixieland, crack onc-night-out train to all Florida points was restored to service on Feb. 6, being detoured via Louisville until the line through Evansville could be opened. This has now been accomplished and now the Dixieland, Dixie Flyer and Dixie Limited follow the regular route from Chicago and St. Louis t h r o u g h Evansville, Nashville, Chattanooga and Atlanta to Jacksonville and all Florida points.
