S:^;?£S=~;jg:~S£i5^ TWENTY MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 18 · 1937 a"T I 1 i HOG PRICES OFF 10 TO IS 11 15 CENTS TOP SAGS DIME ON SLIM SALES Supply Heavy, Demand Low for Pork; Cattle Move in Slow Market. CHICAGO, (#0--A slight expansion in supplies resulted in a drop in hog values Thursday extending '. m some cases to 25 cents. ··'·' The trade pressure of a large accumulated supply o£ pork in storage obligated packers to send practically the entire hog mar- ketings through fresh meat channels for immediate consumption. With a lag in consumer demand and even a modest increase in supplies, lower prices were inevitable. While the week's run to date is smaller than the previous week, it is far in excess of supplies a year ago when extremely cold weather with checking mar- ketings. The bulk of the run of hogs moved at 10 to 15 cents lower prices. Extreme top sagged a dime to'siO.30. : · '. . Since the beginning of the month there has been comparatively little change in the average price of swine. Except on February 1, drove cost has been held above the $1 mark, ranging from $10.07 to $10.20. The cattle market was slow, re. fleeting plain killing quality of offerings, narrow shipper demand and the sluggish dressed beef trade. The oulk of the crop was moved at unchanged prices, however, with most steers selling for $7.75 to $11.50. Best beeves were quoted at $12.50 upward to a ?14.40 top. The lamb trade was dull in early rounds but indications were that prices would' be unchanged. Packers bid lower but sellers were holding their best animals $10.60 or above. There was no chance in the wholesale price range on beef carcasses and fresh pork loins. Some inbetween grade loins, however, lost V-: cent a pound. Local Livestock MASON CITY--For Thursday.

NEW YORK, (JP) ·-- The stock market ambled forward at a steady gait Thursday. Virtually all groups participated in the rise except utilities, which were somewhat hesitant. Steels assumed a more prominent place among gainers as ihe afternoon session proceeded. Other divisions out in front were rails, specialties, alcohols and meiuls. Fractions to a point or more higher were Evans Products, Byron Jackson, National Distillers, Schenley, Distillers Corporation- Seagrams, Missouri Pacific Preferred, Western Pacific Preferred, Southern Pacific, U. S. Smelting, Kennecott,, International Nickel, U. S. Steel, Bethlehem, General Motors, Chrysler, Standard Oil of New Jersey and American Can. U. S. Rubber Preferred, a high- stepper in the previous session, was again to the fore. Allegheny Preferred was bid up briskly. Showing little energy were American Telephone, Western Union, Consolidated Edison, General Electric and duPont. Bonds were irregular. Grains and cotton were narrow. The pound sterling and the French franc were steady. The position of the steels was a subject o£ much board room debate. Observers who termed the action of the steels an important potential cue to the course of the rest of the market argued it is logical to look for a more important technical decline in this group following the spectacular rise of the past few months.

RENA B. 5V1ACK, Commissioner of Rcgistratioi he cloud from Janet's brow, she met with no success. "Martha, I'm a little worried, le says in his telegram that I'm lot to believe any 'silly rumors.' Vhat do neans?" you suppose that Martha was up on her newspa- er columns. She hesitated only a ' ~ " " "Well know moment. Then she said, low, dear, you ought to vhat Hollywood is by now. Yo'u an't brush your teeth without ome one of those writers thinking pou're doing it because you want o bedazzle someone of the oppo- ite sex. They pry into everything nd first thing you know they've nanufactured something that isn't rue." . , I know all that," Janet said atiently, "But do you have any dea what rumors these are? You've got an evasive look in your eye and I suspect you." "I don't know anything except hat . . . well, there was thai lit- le item about Joel taking thai. Driest girl to dinner at what's that place? The. Truckerdero?" 'The Trocodero," Janet corrected absently. She was thinking. There had been Lisa's letter. Toel himself had said that he had een to a party given by Carol at ler Malibu Beach house. But then IB was playing opposite her in a licture. It was only natural that would be seen with her. Except that -He had said he'd been to the boxing bouts with her. Lisa said she had been surprised to see him at the Plovers' with her. She acts as though she owns m. f Janet felt suddenly as though she had 'been hit by a very large, very devastating cyclone. She sat down on the side of Martha's bed. Little things that by themselves were of no moment added up to a :otal that rather took her breath away. It mightn't have beeri a to- al of any importance except that Griest was part of it. Little hings Janet had heard regarding he star before she left Hollywood jegan to assume proportions in her mind. annexation wanted, Carol's insisting that her studio get Joel to play opposite ler; Carol's agreeing to give Joel equal billing.. "Martha," Janet said, "it looks as if one of those well-known crises is coming into my life." "What crisis?" Martha asked calmly. "It looks like another woman." "Husbands don't usually run to their wives when it is another woman, -child." "Mine would," Janet said conclusively. 'As long as he does, you've nothing to worry about." "No, I don't suppose I have -now." ' "Meet trouble when it comes to you, Janet. Don't go out to welcome it." "I'm not going to." Janet and went to the window. She was surprised to find that nothing had changed. The gray film t h a t spread itself over her peace had not affected the world. The sky was bright blue, the green and pinks of the garden were the same hue. A puppy played in the garden and small Mary chased it as happily as she had an hour before Janet's world had suddenly become sn insecure place. "It's not the first one I'm afraid of," she went on. "It's the habit of them. I've seen it happen to other girls who had attractu-e husbands. At first the men are a little frightened and a little surprised that other women find them attractive and they recognize that it affects their plan of living. Then there is the next one and since the first one worked out all right, they feel they have a little more rope." "Nonsense!" "Oh, no, it isn't. I've seen it. Carol's unscrupulous of the man she After a little while they .discover they are in no danger and the game gets to be exciting. It doesn't really do them any harm but oh, Martha, it does destroy something. There is no longer tha.t feeling of just being part of two people. The complete closeness is gone." ."Now, young woman, you're getting morbid. I've known a lot of young married people and they all feel the same way once or twice and then it works out all riglit You aren't going to be any different. Wait and see." "I'll wait and see but we aren't like other young people. Out in California our lives aren't like the lives of young peofje anywhere else. Everything we do is exaggerated. It's a make-believe world that comes out of nothing and frequently collapses into nothing." That was the first - time that Janet had ever said those things to Martha. "Most of us out there were once poor. Suddenly we are rich. Martha, I used to spend 50 cents a day for three meals for two people. Today my dinner parties cost as much as ?500 a piece. Everything is like that. It's all out of proportion. "There are wars going on in the world. People are born and die. Great discoveries are made, books are written, skyscrapers are built, careers- are made or ruined all around us, yet everything is translated into picture terms. If it can't be, it is not recognized, Tt just isn't happening if it doesn't fit into the narrow confines of our little, tinseled circle!" Martha cleared her throat but Janet didn't hear her. "How can you expect normalcy in a world that trades on emotions? Everything is emotional. Register pain! Register joy! Emote! Suffer for the camera! What have you got left when it is over? Fatigue or synthetic emotions left over from the day working before the camera. It's got to affect your point of view a n d - i t does! "I wanted to have a baby. I thought that was one way to give some substance to our lives. The studio--the studio! -- said we couldn't! It wasn't a good idea because it would affect Joel's box office draw with the public!" "Then why not assert your right, rlear? No studio could tell me what I was going to do," Martha said stoutly. The fire of Janet's denunciation had died down. "Yes, it would, Martha, if your husband was in my husband's place. Joel spent too many years of his life not knowing where the next penny was coming from. Now we don't know where the last one went. But I intend matters to be different when I go back. We're going to save something out of this against the day when Joel tires of it. Then we'll be free. We'll have our own lives to lead them!" When Janet said that, she realized that if they had thir own lives to live independently of Joel's picture work, they would, have something that she could not even see. For there was nothing that Joel ever said he wanted to do. Unlike Janet, there was no future for him. He had long since stopped speaking of what he wanted to do in the theater. He was a movie actor now; the artist had disappeared. She realized as she had once before, and that was only an hour after they had been married, that she knew little of the man she had married. She knew his faults and his virtues, his reactions good and bad, the things he liked to eat, the thousads of intimate things a wife knows about her husband. But she did not know what was behind the curtain of-the present in his mind. If he had a philosophy of living, it was foreign to her because it was unknown to her. "I'd better start packing," she said, "and send a wire to JoeL I"ll surprise him. I'll fly out."
