A few hogs sold at unchanged to shade lower prices Quotable top was $10.25, there being no strictly choice medium weights offered lo get this price The best sale was made at $10.10 The advances scored in the cattle trade this week were largely forced because of decline in receipts. In fact, a contraction ir supplies was the p r i n c i p a s t r e n g t h e n i n g factor in al branches of the livestock marlce but even this did not prevent a decline in hog values, during the week. · Lent Cuts Trade. . .The sluggish condition ot the 'dressed meat trade, with Lent cutting demand to some extent am with mild weather having even more influence, retarded buying enthusiasm all along the line Packers were unable to raise wholesale meat prices because the product moved sluggishly. Hogs lost 10 to 50 cents during the week, with those weighing above 200 pounds showing the least decline. Light hogs now make up the bulk of the crop in all markets and quality is declining because of feed costs. Shipping Demand Narrow. Shipping cattle commanded unchanged to 25 cents higher prices during the week but the demand from these buyers was very harrow. Some she stock gained 25 cents. Bulls lost 10 to" 25 cents and vealers $1. The cattle top was §14.50 but the bulk of fat steers moved at $8.50 to $12.50. Fat lambs advanced steadily 25 to 35 cents higher for the week, with spots up more. The closing top of $10.85 was within 15 cents of the-winter's peak. Dressed lambs were reported in better demand but the wool market is slow. Local Livestock T CITY--For Saturday H O G S Steady prices on hogs.

NEW YORK, (IP)--Stock market buyers raised their bids for selected steel and mines Saturday while cashing in on many other issues lately in the climbing class. Activity was pronounced in the first hour, with an assortment of favorites getting up fractions to 2 points to new peaks for the recovery. Selling later developed, however, and at the close the list was uneven: Transfers were around 1,500,000 shares. Of prime interest to market followers w e r e advices f r o m Washington that the president was considering outlawing excessively low wages and long hours through revision of the fair trade practice and anti-trust laws. Conspicuous f o r w a r d share leaners were U. S. Steel, Bethlehem, Crucible Steel, Youngstown Sheet and Tube, Anaconda, Howe Sound, Bridgeport Brass, American Metal, American Smelting, International Nickel, American Zinc, Cerro de Pasco, Southern Pacific, and Barber company. Crown Cork dropped about 3 points at the worst as more competition in the container division was visualized. Others inclined to non-resistance w e r e Westinghouse, General Motors, Chrysler, Montgomery Ward, Sears Roebuck, Woolworth, G o o d y e a r , General Electric, American Telephone, Western Union, Pennsylvania, Baltimore and Ohio, and Illinois Central.

Fractional improvement appeared In American Gas and Elcclric, Internalional Petroleum. Nevvmont. St. Hegls Paper. Sherwin Williams, and Wayne Pump. Scattered losses in the general list touched Gulf Oil and Electric Bond and Share. Bond Market NEW YORK, C/P)--Further good support for Ihe general run of low vicld bonds Saturday was seen as a manifestalion of some rcaccumulalion in response to predictions of continued low rates for long term funds by Marriner S. Ecclcs, chairman of federal reserve board. U. S. governments recorded several gains running from l-32nd to 3-32nds of a point, and various corporate issues of investment rating were in demand at fractionally higher levels. A few medium priced rails edged a little higher, rounding out a week of almost steady advance. The volatile industrial convertibles were mixed, with Studcbaker 6s sharply lower. Trading; in foreign loans was at low ebb with, prices showing liltle change. C O VEUNM, ENT BONDS. (Saturday Quotallons) NEW YORK, (;p}--U. s. government bonds closed: Treasury 4V 4 s 47-52 119.22.

FORGET CHAPTER 26 Janet rummaged through her wardiobe and found a white chiffon skirt that was sufficiently full sn t h a t it could be shortened. She found a red Spanish shawl and a tall comb. She wrapped the shawl about her and stuck the comb in her hair. The effect was hardly devastatingly Carmen-like. I n . f a c t it reduced' her to complete nonentity and made her feel depressed. She was dressing for the costume party to be given by the Countess Di Gremini, a formet- New York society woman who now made her home in Hollywood and gave fabulous parties to bolster up her slipping popularity in the east. Definitely Janet disliked the whole idea. She thought: You have tr. have a certain kind of personality to carry a costume with aplomb. I haven't. And I don't like blowing horns and wearing paper c;i'ps. I don't like jumping through paper hoops either but I seem to be doing it every day o£ my life these days. "Darling," she said to her husband, "that plane trip was very exhausting and I really don't mind having you go without me." Then she realized it really wasn't that Joel wanted her to go with him because he wanted her to be with him; he had another reason. He had said,."Had you not better go with me the first night of your return! There has been enough said now without giving them anything else to say." Janet had wanted to ask why, who was saying what, but the maid-was in the dining room then and,, when she had served them their vegetables, Joel had changed .the subject. there were some telephone Public Utility and Industrial Stocks Quoted hy A.

CHICAGO--Saturday Wneal--Snow and rain was ralhcr general m the srjulhwcsl overnight and Ihe wheat opened considerable lower only lo he followed by further declines unices prices were more lhan 3c a bushel lower Friday night's close. Kansas City was p a r t i c u l a r l y weak, being more readily affected by Ihe precipitation in parts of Ihe winter wheat belt. As much as six to eight inches o£ snow was reported in certain sqclions while In others the fall was lighter but sufficient lo lay the dust and prevent blowing at least for t h e time being. The weekly we.ilhcr forecast for the upper Mississippi and lower Missouri valleys is for some precipitation for about jniddle of week. Winnipeg market naturally did not decline as much as Chicago, but prices Ihcrc were about 2c lower lhan Friday. Winnipeg said that seaboard interests and American mills were picking up some what on the break, ivot much export business was reported m Canadian wheat. The selling of whr-at In Saturday's market was general, much of it being liquidation. Attention Is'again called to the large acreage sown to winter wheat last fall and the fact that (here arc only about five million acres of wheat in the regions which have suffered recently from dust storms and soil blowing. Further declines may be necessary lo dipcst the wheat which was sold Sal- urclny but we c:.-pect that some firmness could readily develop in May wheat. Corn--Corn was lower Saturday in s y m p a t h y wilh wtieal and although trade was nol heavy t h e market showed but mile rallying Icndency. CHIC A OO I'OTATOKS. (Saturday M a r k e t ) CHICAGO.

K l e m m c and Kannwha also presented plays. calls for each of them and it was time to dress for the party. Joel had never looked handsomer oi- more debonair to Janet than he did that night. He had worn a Spanish costume to join in effect with hers. But it served merely to contrast her own colorlessness. Janet had been right; she wasn't the type for costume parties. She rather resented Joel's attractiveness. She was strangely silent as their big ear rolled over the roads to Brentwood. She knew that her silence made Joel uncomfortable. "Joel," she said at last, "what's it all about? You'd better tell me. I'd rather hear it from you. I know that there has been talk about something. It probably isn't very important; it seldom is out here. But it is important enough to upset you. I know you so well. I know when you erect wells between us. You're so obvious about it. Tell me?" "Well," he began and stopped. He made much ado about tapping his cigaret, lighting it Then he held it in his fingers and didn't even notice when the light went out. "Come on," she said lightly, "It can't be so bad." "Oh, it isn't bad," he said hastily. "It really isn't anything, except you see I ... a f t e r you went away . . . one night I ... that is, Chester Vernon and I . .." "I know," Janet said, "you wrote me about it. You went to Carol Griest's because you were making a picture wtih her and you wanted to talk it over. You wrote me about it, don't you remember?" She felt rather than heard Joel's sigh of relief. "Yes," he said, "that was it." There was a pause. "Well go on, Joel. People don't talk about that. What else was there?" "Nothing. Nothing," he said. "Oh, come, dearest!" Janet encouraged. "I know better. I know that you went to the bouts with Carol and you went . . . let me see . . . " "How did you know that?" he asked quickly. "You wrote me," she answered gently. "And I'll tell you the rest. After the bouts you and Carol went out somewhere for a bite of supper and you danced. You had a good time and your wife was far away, and on a lonely night, you thought you'd call Carol up and ask her if she'd take pity on you and she did. Right?" "Right." He said it before he thought of a better answer. "And so," she said slowly but lightly, "It got to be a habit First thing you knew people were saying that the reason Janet Paynter had gone east was because she was leaving her husband. Before you-could blink an eye, the scribes were linking your name to Carol's and your public didn't like the idea o£ an idol deserting his faithful wife and the studio heads called you in and said you'd have to do something about it." Janet didn't realize as she made up her tale how closely she had hit the truth. She had unerringly found the outline. And she had avoided the filling in as neatly as though she had arranged it. She avoided it even in her own think- ' ing. Joei reached lor her hand. She gave it to him but she didn't relax it in his big one. "Honey," he said, "you're a woman in a million! I've heard about understanding women but I never thought I'd be lucky enough to marry one. Where do you keep all those brains in your -pretty little head'.'" Janet felt the weight oi his anxiety lift as though she had carried the burden herself. "Why should I be understand-* ing, Joel? There isn't anything for? me to understand, is there?" "No of course not," he said hastily. Janet thought: If only he wouldn't answer so quickly as though he were telling me that I'm making up the story he wanted to tell me and not the truth. "You know how folks are out here," he was saying, "they make mountains out of molehills. Just because Carol and I . . ." Carol and I! Jealousy was a rapier-thin, red-hot knife cutting through Janet's heart. Just to heac him say it so intimately! " . . . happened t o meet occasionally in the commissary .for lunch, they got buzzing." Janet wanted to s'ay that Carol wore his orchids. She didn't say it. "Carol's a darn sweet kid and she had nothing to do with it. She said she didn't want to see me any more but I told her I'd tell you all about it." _ Two thoughts crowded in on Janet. She didn't think that any woman who had divorced three husbands was correctly classed as "a darn sweet kid." And she thought that the f u t u r e , tense wasn't very flattering. Joel had said, "I'd tell you all about it." She doubted very much if Carol Griest had said she wasn't going to see Joel any more for any other reason than that she knew her men and she knew t h a t was the one thing to say to Joel. She hated Carol Griest but she'd never let her know that; or Joel either. She was prepared for her own benefit and for the benefit of all who might see to greet Carol Griest--should she be at that party--like a long lost sister. She was going to be so close to Carol Griest, she'd perplex even that lady. But she wasn't prepared to see Carol greet her husband with a lingering, "Darling!" Or favor him with a glance of such pity after a ' quick glance at Janet that there was no one in the room who missed its implication. "You poor, dear Joel, with that dreadful little Wife come back again!" it seemed to say. "Hello," she said to Janet, "how nice that you're back!" "Isn't it?" Janet said. "Now we'll have a lot of fun together." (To Be Continued) Dead Animals OF ALL KINDS REMOVED Mason City Rendering Co.
