CHICAGO, (/P)--Renewal of interest in swine on the part of shippers ag a result of Tuesday's sharp decline in prices steadied the bog market Wednesday. Most early sales were steady to 10 cents higher. ' The trade had only 10.000 fresh hogs but this run apparently was about in line with packers' requirements after live costs were cut below the Sll level as a result of warmer weather and sluggish movement of meat in wholesale channels. Fresh cuts of pork at various points of distribution sold weak 10 $1 a hundredweight lower, Wednesday's top of $10.70 wa paid freely for hogs, this being th same price paid in late dealing; Tuesday. Most early sales wer steady to 10 cents higher. The cattle supply again was liberal. In fact, arrivals of 10,OOC were 1.000 above ,the advance esti mate and buyers were bearish from the outset.

NEW YORK. (iB--Irregularly higher prices marked quiet dealings in Wednesday's stock market. While Allied Chemical, with a gain of about 7 points, pushed through 200 for the first time since 1930, and General Motors and number of others registered new year tops, the rails were soft throughout. Up as much a point or so, at the approach of the final hour, were U. S. Steel, Chrysler, U. S. Rubber Case, Deere, Montgomery Ward Sears Roebuck, Phillips Petroleum American Telephone and International Telephone. Union Pacific, Chesapeake anc Ohio, International Harvester and U. S. Smelting were down 1 to points. The late tone was mixed. Transfers approximated 1,800.000 shares. Wheat, at Chicago, finished with declines of % to % of a cent a bushel and corn waa off % to up as much. Brighter earnings prospects attracted further attention to some of the steel, ore, and specialty stocks. The carrier group reflected early forecasts of reduced car loadings in the past week. Italian stock markets recovered somewhat, following yesterday's break on Mussolini's nationalization of industry program. .MARKET REVIEW Wheat--While there was but little moisture in the southwest over night and dust storms reported at some points, the .market was quite indifferent holding within a harrow range declined somewhat further under the influence of moderate sellinp. particularly in the jray wheat future. Weather indications are for unsettled Wednesday nipbt for Kansas with possible showers in the east and rain or snow in Nebraska. One of the crop experts wirinc from Sprinpfield. Mo., said they had pood rains in southwest Missouri Monday and wheat from Salin^ to Kansas City looked fair to pood, outside of being late. Winnipeg was lower Wednesday and both Way and July sold within fractions of the low prices of the crop. Export demand ovemiKht was smalt but Broomhall says that the decline in Canadian cif prices while having lowered they have advanced in exchange rates but Canadian prices are in line for export on tile on"n- ins of navigation. Even with the admitted need of rain 'n the -southwest, it Jipr-,;trs d i f f i c u l t tn keep wheat prices on the up- prrade. Corn--A certain amount nf firmness was present in the corn futures market today althouph the trade was not large and prices were narrow. The large industry was out of the market and it was reported they would be shut down for a few days. INVESTMENT TRUSTS By Tttf Associated Press.

I'm not going to let any of you get into a jam on my account.'' "You poor kid, you. Well, in that case . . ." said Gordon. "Mr. Marsh is waking up," Thora announced quietly from her chair near the couch where she had been keeping a close watch on her patient. She got to her feet and walked away, aa Dr. Evans hurried to the side of the injured man. "Well, Selwyn? Feel all right now?" "I guess so," Marsh muttered. 'Should I?" "Of course you should. You'll be fine . . . after you've had a little drink. Not a thing to worry about." '"Oh, dad!" Wilma dropped to her knees beside the couch. "Hello. Are you all right, too?" "Yes. . . . Oh, I'm so thankful!" She buried her face against his shoulder, just as Mrs. Steele fluttered into the scene. "Selwyn! Oh. you poor dear boy!" She laid her plump hand against his cheek. "I was so frightened my dear . . . so frightened. Tell me that you're all right now!'' S u d d e n strength came into Marsh's voice. "Of course I'm all right," he protested peevishly. "In God's name, Dorothy, don't take on! Where is Miss Dahl?" "Selwyn! How can you?" Mrs. Steele cried chokingly. "Doctor! He is hurt! He's delirious. Do something . . . quick!" Gordon contributed to the situation by maneuvering Mrs. Steele to one side and nodding to Thora. She came forward at once, saying in her quiet fashion: "Did you want me, Mr. Marsh?" "Yes." He reached out for her hand, held it in his. "Good girl. Seems that I always can depend on ou. That was very plucky . . ." "Oh no." "You'd say that." He tried to scowl. "Please get me out of here. tVon't you?" "Of course. Selwyn," Mrs. 3teeie nterrupted soothingly. "We'll help upstairs and put you in my bed. '11 stay right beside you and take are of vou myself tonight." "I want to go home," he insisted stubbornly. "Miss Dahl will look Jter me if I need anything. She's quiet. . . and I've a devil of a head- che." Dorothy Steele gave vent to a eeble wail, tottered backward, her tandkerchief pressed to her eyes. "Some of you girls take her up acd put her in her own bed," the .octor advised cheerily. "Gordon 1 .nd I will take Selwyn home. If he eels like going, it's the best thing or him. I don't intend to let any- ody question him tonight, ^anyway. '11 come back here and give Dorohy a sedative later." "Then let's start now," Gordon irged, "before the cops get here. They must be lost." "Right. George can. entertain them, f they want to see the rest of us in hurry, they can trail over to Selwyn's. You might as well come with your father. Wilma . . . you, too, Miss Dahl." Marsh scarcely had been settled comfortably in the car for his short drive home, than a motorcycle with a side car and two officers sputtered to a stop alongside. After identifying the occupants of the machine, one of the patrolmen explained: "We'd have got here quicker after Mr. Gordon called, but we think we have your man. He was burning up the road when one of our boys overhauled him . . . couldn't give a very straight account of himself. They're bringing him to the sub-station and we'll give you a chance to look him over." Doctor Evans took charge of the situation here. "Very good. But I don't want anybody questioning Mr. Marsh tonight. I'm taking him home now and I want him to rest.

I'i: come back when I get Mr. Marsh settled in bed. Gordon will come with me ... these ladies, too. if you like. All right?" "Sure, Doc. We'll get busy on this end. You'd all better come back, if you don't mind." When Selwyn was comfortably installed in his own bed, Doctor Evans announced that the patient must rest and went downstairs, leaving Wilma and Gordon to say good night. At that moment, Thora entered with a glass of water on a tray and Gordon hurried to take it from her. "Oh, you were a brick tonight, dear!" he whispered hurriedly. "I've been wanting a chance to tell you how proud , . ." "Miss Dahl!" came a querulous voice from the bed. "Yes, Mr. Marsh." "Let the others go back to Mrs. Steele's. You stay here. I want you. . . ." Once again, he reached for her hand and she surrendered it. There was a constrained bush in the room. Sherman, who was near the bed, stood transfixed at what he saw. There was an unmistakable light in the eyes of the older man. Gordon glanced helplessly at Thora. She was looking down into the face against the pillow. A tremulous little smile on her lips. A softness in ber blue eyes that the young man vainly had tried to bring to them. Sherman drew a long breath, straightened his shoulders, turned away from the little scene, "Come along," he said gruffly, passing an arm about Wilma's shoulders. "I guess you and I ... we'd better go and tell our troubles to the police." "I had to talk to you," Selwyn began, when the door had closed on the others and the two of them were alone. "There are some things I've got to get straight." "Hadn't you better wait until morning, Mr. Marsh-? The doctor . . ." "Evans is an old granny. I'm all right. Tell me . . . straight out, now . . . was Babbas mixed tip in that business tonight?" "That man said . . ." "I thought as much. Tipped him off. Where is Babbas?" "He went away . . . with Mr. Gordon's father and Pat. In your car. I don't know where exactly, but to the city, I think." "Umph . . . Pretty tough for Wilma. Better now than later, though. She'll get over i t . . . young enough." "Won't you please rest now?" "No. I told you I had to get everything straight. Not Babbas . . . " crooked. I should have trusted my judgment in the first place. It doesn't often let me down . . . I iink. That's another thing I've got to be sure about. I want to talk to you about Sherm." 'Mr. Gordon?" .Thora asked m surprise. Yes." (TO BE CONTINUED) Business Notes With flood damage viewed as onJy of temporary retarding influence on industrial advance, a pronounced ' optimistic sentiment prevails as to the outlook. Unquestionably the floods halted the business rise, particularly by their damage in the Pittsburgh area, but at the close of the k the opinion was that the waters had passed the crest and that the steei industry especially will recover quickly. There was some belief that the repairing of flood damage might even prove a further spur to industry in the immediate future. OPTIMISM IS CREATED Against the temporary flood factor waa a feeling of optimism created by more favorable international aspects, improved automobile retail distribution, strong retail merchandising tendencies, a more than seasonal igor in industry outside of the river overflow districts, and at least hope OD the lax muddle at Washington. Evidence accumulates that industry was proceeding at an unusual pace, even tor the week in which spring officially arrives, prior to the floods which proved worse than anticipated, although awaited with trepidation for some time. Practically every major segment of the industrial structure was moving at an extra-seasonal advance, but the steel idustry stood out most prominently. In steel operations had reached the highest since June, 1934, and with price uncertainties removed through announcement of second quarter schedules, gave every promise of moving Into new top ground. CAUSKU ABRUPT REVERSAL The stoppage of Pittsburgh operations, however, caused an abrupt reversal, with the result that at the week-end the industry was operating nationally at only 50 per cent, or 7% points below the preceding week. At the start of the new week, however, reports are coming In of rapid resumption of operations by many mills in various parts of the east, including Pittsburgh, and the indications arc that plants will be running at a high rate -ithin the next few days, dependent, of course, upon the amount of inestimable damage that might be discovered. There IK no. doubt that outride Pittsburgh steel mills wil] be forced to speed up operations to meet volume transferred to them from the affected area, so that probably within a few weeks at most the industry as a whole will have taken up the slack through quick adjustment.
