MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 23 · 1937 . THIRTEEN HEAVY RUN DEPRESSES HOG TRADE PRICESMOSTLY 15 TO 25 LOWER Spots Off More; Practical Top $10.25; Bulk $10 lo $10.20. CHICAGO, (#)--Hog market receipls, which continued to increase during the morning alter a week-end delay due to floods and storms, depressed trade Tuesday. Transactions were slow and prices were mostly 15 to 25 cents lower than Monday's' average. Spots were off more. Small lots o£ good and choice medium weights climbed to S10.30, but the practical top was S10.25. The bulk of '.sales ranged from $10.00 to S10.20. Any advance in hog prices in the nation which may occur during the next two months probably will be small, the bureau of agricultural economics said in its February summary. Present stocks of pork in cold storage are heavy and will tend largely to offset the effects ol anticipated smaller receipts. Sharply increased receipts in the cattle runs here Tuesday placed the market in the buyers' hands. The fed steer crops tended to average from 25 to 50 cents lower than Monday's best prices. Very little trading was done. As there was but a meager supply of choice and prime steers aad years, these held steady. Cows held steady to weak. Bulls "were weak, vealers, however, climbed in price, scoring from 25 to 50 cent increases over this time last week. There was not much action in lambs as supplies o£ choice kinds were meager, but indications were Irom weak to 25 cents lower. Sheep held steady. Local Livestock MASON CITY--For Tuesday.

NEW YORK, (IP)--Strength of selected metal issues contrasted with pronounced weak-ness in most other sections of Tuesday's stock market. Even the mining list, buoyant in early dealings following Monday's exciting upturn in London, fell back in later transactions when the, British market turned reactionary. Holding gains ot fractions to a point, near the fourth hour, were Patino Mines, American Zinc, Ccrro de Past:o and Park-Utah. Morning advances wei'e transformed into declines by Anaconda, Inspiration and Kennecott. One block of 40,000 Park-Ulan changed hands at the opening. The activity in other issues for a while was so pronounced the ticker tape was unable lo keep up with actual deals. The pace slowed near the final hour. Transfers were around 2,800,000 shares. Handicapping buying forces, brokers said, were fears of growing labor difficulties. In addition the t h o u g h t . was expressed that the market may have been due for a technical reversal.

But she thought she knew the way a man's mind worked and so she kept silent. Between her and Joel there had never been any scenes and she- wanted to keep the personal side of his life free of them. She saw marked changes in him :hat were indicative of his chang- ng attitude toward his life and his work. He was still sweet, always considerate of her. There ivas no change in his feeling or lis attitude toward her. But there was a change in him. He was acting like a movie idol. The great screen lover was beginning to take his attractiveness seriously. His manner toward all women :iad always been courteous. Now it Had a new quality. He played back to them. He sought admiration from them and he expanded under it. His wistfulness no longer had the qualify of complete naturalness. Trained before the camera to make the most of his mannerisms, he carried them iulo Lhe drawing rooms and paraded them, not too obviously but most effectively, for the benefit of all. Janet watched and was saddened but she kept her silence as always. When she became aware of the change in Joel, she ceased lo worry about Carol Griest. She understood the situation. She knew t h a t Joel was flattered by the attentions of the glamorous star. She was f a i r in her attitude about that. She did not delude lierseJf into thinking that any man was strong enough to withstand the flattering attentions of a beautiful woman. She knew that she was not any more fascinating than any other wife is to a husband to whom she had been married for three years. She knew that she was a good companion. She knew that Joel's passion for her had not waned and so she did not doubt his fidelity. But sometimes she thought that fidelity was not the most important t h i n g in marriage. And she was aware of all the things in marriage that form the bonds that weave two lives to- Public Utility and Industrial Stocks Quoted by A. M. SCHANKE CO. Telephone 1.100.

She and Joel, wilh the small exception of their first few months of marriage, had had nolh- ng to build together. Money hart come to them so quickly t h a t they lad no struggles to shave and bind .hem. They had no children. They lad no friends o£ life-long duva- .ion, Everything that they had was an open book shared by the others n r their world. In Hollywood, iasts were dimmed in no lime and futures were vague. Friendships weren't made to endure a lifetime lor were they based on mutual af- 'ections. Friendships were made oy studio associations and bound the frail ties of shared work .hat was as unsteady as any such castles built on sand. Standards were formed on a 3asis of success. And the only success t h a t Janet wanted, or could have, was in her marriage. The value of marriage was not rated as high in her society as it was in her own mind. Janet was an individual in a group of groups. In these groups, men and women did not act as persons, they acted as part ot the [roup. What one did, another did. Janet followed suit. When she was laid up with a mild attack of influenza, she insisted that Joel carry on. It wasn't good for him, she said, to work hard at the studio all day and come home to a house ot illness. So she read herself sleepy in the confines of her lovely bedroom where she was attended by a trained nurse, while Joel went to his parties. The first few nights, he stole softly into her room to tell her about them, to kiss her good night. But then as a week slvetched on into the second one, he stopped those visits and Janet had him alone only for a few minutes in the morning and briefly at night. She had her dinner oil a tray and was conscious that Joel was anxious to get away from the atmosphere of a sick room. Her fever hod left her weak and the first night t h a t she went lo a concert with Joel, she wasn't up lo going on to someone's house later. Larry Kelton was in the party. He said he- had to start shooting at B the next morning and he was anxious to get home early. He took Janet home and accepted her invitation lo stop for somelhing to eat. Janet had loved the concert. Joel was bored. She WHS glad to have "Larry to talk it over with her. He shared her enjoymenl oE music and knew no more about it than she did. H was a f t e r 1 when he left. The next week, he rang her up and askeet her it she'd like to go to hear "La Scheme" which was being sung by a visiting opera company at the Hollywood Bowl. He didn't ask her if Joel would likt to go. It was the first invitation she had received from a'man since she had been married. Larry was a friend of Joel's and she didn't know how to answer him. She said she'd love lo go but she wasn't quite sure whether she had made any arrangements for that evening and asked him to call her back. She wanted to talk it over wilh Joel. '·I'd really love to go, Joel, but I feel so queer about accepting an i n v i t a t i o n that doesn't include you. You don't reully care about opera, though, do you?" Joel laughed al her anxiety. ."Little goose, you know I simply loathe opera. Go ahead by all means." "Mind because you're having a date?" She nodded her head. "Of course not! Good Lord, Janet, you're not in Chester now. And you're not living in the early nineties! Didn't I tell you when we were first married that f always wanted you Jo /eel free to do anything you liked, to go where you wanted lo, and wilh whom you pleased?" She said yes, he had. And she thought: But I'll .never want lo go anywhere without you, or want to go with anyone else in preference to you. She wanted lo say: You can talk about freedom in marriage but you can't make yourself feel free, you shouldn't want to. She knew that by giving her her ticket to such things, Joe! was making himself ns free as he wanted her lo be. She went lo the opera wilh Larry Kellon and put her mind in order as precisely as she dressed. She was going to enjoy herself. She wasn't going to feel like, an old-fashioned wife. She was modern. She learned to be modern. She played golf wilh Jim Somebody or olher who was v i s i t i n g from New York. She met a foreign director al the Jarrctt's house and accepted his invitation lo cocktails one afternoon. She forgot to tell Joel that the flowers she wore t h a t night were from Franz, the director. She gave all the outward appearance ot having a lovely time, lulling time with a n u m b e r of people. But she was not h a v i n g a lovely lime. There was a nameless ache in her heart when she thought of the days and nights that she had sharetf--and only she--wilh Joel. Joel wan not "running around" but he had his dates ns casually as she had hers and apparently it did not disturb their happiness or their routine. But Janet could have had three dales t day with three d i f f e r e n l men and she couldn't h a v e loir] you ; Hiing one of them said tj her vv'hen the date was over. Hei dates were only shadows blending i n t o the other shadows of those passing days. Then she met Russell Bode.
