(£)--With only few hundred-, hogs on ; sale, th livestock market was quiet Sat urday and, prices for swine were virtually unchanged.. Top wa ?10.25 ' . The net result of a modest dip in swine prices during the wee and subsequent recovery. Frida: was that the market closed-prac ticjtllyiat.the same level at ,-which it wound up the previous week The volume of receipts was be · low last week but lower whole sale pork-loin prices offset this. The,advance of livestock price this week \vas- confined, largel to the cattle and -sheep depart- 'ments where receipts were below a year ago but about in line with 1he previous week. Although reports- came to th ·trade that there was some 'improvement in meat demand, th wholesale market reflected: littl' ,ot this :and as a result there wa Jittle response- in the live roar ket. Livestock receipts have de creased about 20 per cent in Feb ruary compared with a montl ago, but most values are averagm below January levels, with th exception of lambs. Packers : hav teen-moving meat from storage ii larger quantities, it .was reported Best cattle advanced 15 to 2 cents during the week as receipt showed evidence of a smaller pro portion of these, but common anc medium grades · showed .littl change. A new 1937 peak o£.$14.6i was paicT'fdr best light steers.' Shi stock shared ' in the -upturn ti some extent while vealers recov ered'50 to 75 cents.· Fat lambs gained 25 to 35 cents rising to an early,top.of $11.15, new peak for .the winter. .Abou half of. the lamb run consisted of Cblorados.

CHICAGO, (ff)--Despite weekend profit taking sales and notwithstanding improved weather conditions in the United States winter crop belt, wheat prices closed a little higher Saturday. Advices from, the southwest indicated a more optimistic feeling in regard to the 1937 new wheat crop, but sentiment here was not especially affected. This was owing a good deal to reported general lightness of moisture precipitation. At the close, wheat was % to Ts above Friday's finish, May ?i.3Hs to $1.31%.

STOCK MARKET UNEVEN AFFAIR Merchandising and Packing Shares Gain Fractions to Over Point. NE\V YORK, (IP)--Specialties, including merchandising a n d packing stocks, propped Saturday's market with gains of fractions to a point or more. With news stimulus lacldng for the list as a whole, however, many issues were unable to get ahead to any appreciable extent and a number retreated in the final hour. It was'one of the quietest Saturday sessions of the year with transfers totaling around 1,000,000 shares. Wary of Commitments. While traders apparently were wary of broadening commitments on either side of the market, insistent selling was scarce. A break in unofficial London copper quotations tripped up some of the red metal shares, but it was thought these were due for at least a moderate technical reaction in view of their lengthy upturn. The preponderance of shares selling under $10 was again the subject of discussion in commission houses. Some Well Ahead. Well ahead during the greater part of the proceedings were Montgomery Ward, Sears Roebuck, Gimbel, Macy, National Department Stores, Allied Stores Associated Dry Goods, Bethlehem bteel, American Telephone Wilson, Armour, Paramount, Industrial Hayon, Great Northern Iron Ore Schenle3', Western Union, Mack Truck, Yellow Truck, White Motors, Cerro de Pasco and Boeing.

Taxes on real estate and personal s property paid during the year 1836 are deductible. So-called taxes, which are assessed against local benefits, such as streets, sidewalks, drainage, and other like improvements, are not deductible, for they tend to increase the value of the property and thus constitute cost of a permanent improvement The federal income tax may not be deducted. The tax on unjust enrichment--a federal fax on income--^is not deductible. Income tax, however, paid to the state by an individual on his income is an allowable deduction on his federal income tax return. Custom duties paid by a person on articles imported for his own use are deductible. Federal taxes on admissions in excess of 40 cents are deductible, but the taxpayer must show that account has been kept of the amount paid. Taxes on club dues are deductible by the member paying them. An individual may deduct the tax on his telephone conversations, radio messages, telegrams, and cables, and on the rent of his safe deposit box. Are Deductible. License fees exacted by a state or city upon certain businesses are deductible as taxes. Automobile license fees are ordinarily taxes and deductible. Postage is not a tax and is not deductible. In general, taxes are deductible only by the person upon whom they are imposed.. Federal estate and gift taxes and state inheritance, estate, legacy, or succession taxes are not deductible on federal income tax returns. The federal taxes on automobiles, gasoline, and liquor are imposed' upon the manufacturer, producer, or importer, and are not deductible by the purchaser or consumer. May Be Deducted. Whether or not the gasoline tax or the sales tax levied by a (state may be deducted by the indi- 'vidual purchaser depends upon the terms of the state law imposing the tax, consequently the right to the deduction, as between purchaser and seller, varies in the different states. Under the revenue act of 1836 the amount of excess profits fax paid or accrued under the revenue act of 1935 (as amended) is deductible in computing net income of a corporation for the purpose of both the normal tax and the surtax on undistributed profits.

He was aware o£ her face lifted to the handsome face of her husband. Aware of the possessive arm curved about her small waist. 'He didn't cut in at once but when Janet had changed partners, he made" his way slowly and determinedly across the floor and touched her new partner on the shoulder. They danced a few steps and Janet said, "This is an odd place for a sea dragon to turn up." "I've been looking for you for the last hour," he answered and led her through some intricate steps. "I missed you," she said. They danced the length of the crowded floor silently. "I'm glad," he said. When they had gotten back to their starting point, Janet said, "I mean that as a guest of honor, you are little evident." "Was that all you meant? I am disappointed. I thought you meant that you missed my company." Quickiy she said, "I would have if I'd been in the pool. You're quite the nicest dragon I've ever met. And a very competent one, too." "I'm not a dragon any more," he said. Then the music stopped and they clapped their hands for more and looked away from each other. "What are you?" she asked when the music started again. "A disappointed man." . Janet strove for lightness. "Because I haven't got long eyelashes?" "It isn't because of what you haven't got. It's that you . . ." Larry Kelton touched Russell Bede's shoulder. "Sorry, old man," he said, "but Janet is the best rhumba dancer here and you can't keep her all night." Bede relinquished with a sad smile. Janet wanted to tell him that she wasn't going to disappear into thin air but she WDS afraid to say anything so personal to him. While she was dancing with Kelton, she looked around a little wildly for Joel. She felt that she needed him to hang on to for moral support. Joel was dancing with a willowy girl with slumberous eyes and who wore a clinging black satin dress. Her eyes were slumberous but her red mouth close to Joel's ear was whispering to him and Janet saw LEGAL NOTICE NOTICE OF THE APPOINTMENT OF ADMINISTRATOR STATE OF IOWA, Cerro Gordo County, ss.

JOICE--Funeral services for Mrs. George Rowe, 76, were held Saturday at the Bethania church here and at the Methodist church in Lake Mills. Burial was lo take place at North cemetery, Lake Mills. a rapt expression on Joel's lace that she had learned to dread because it made her feel as though. her next step would be into a deep, dark pit. She was trifle resentful that at that moment when she needed Joel to look across the room and find her eyes and smile at her, his attention was for someone else. Would it be if he knew that for the first time in their joint lives, she was feeling something that was so pleasant it disturbed her? She thought: When Joel needs me I am always there. Even when it is an emotional disturbance that- doesn't have anything to do with me, he needs me. I need him right now. If Joel were to come over here and take my hand as he used to do and just ask Me to walk over to the punch bowl with him, everything would be the \yay it used to be. I wouldn't feel bad because another man looks at me with a hurt expression in his eye. I wouldn't care about him. Powdering her nose in the dressing room, she was surprised to see that her face was radiant. I look happy, she thought. I look like a girl at a high school dance who has met a nice boy, She touched a lipstick to her mouth and wet her fingertip to draw it over the line of her fine, smooth brows. I'm not a high school girl, I'm an old married lady acting like a schoolgirl just because a man paid me a compliment. Combing her hair and rearranging the ribbon band she thought: How Joel would hate for me to call myself an old married lady. He doesn't even want me to think o£ myself as a wife; I'm his "sweetheart." I wish he didn't feel that way. Nothing will ever change the fact that I feel raar-r ried and that I want to. I don't want to be a sweetheart. I haven't the temperament to live up to it. T h i n k i n g · over her wifely thoughts, she composed herself before the long mirror, smoothed her skirts and arranged her. thoughts. Nevertheless it did not escape her that the gown gave her height and its matching shade gave her hair a new luster. Satisfactorily, she noted that she did rather measure up to the other girls. She didn't often feel that way and was generally happier in one of her smart suits or her sports clothes than in evening. things. Tonight she liked herself. There was a bouquet of white flowers on the dressing table. She picked a cluster of them from the bowl and thrust them in her nar-. row belt. Then she stood off and inspected the effect. It was quite all right. She added a little more lipstick and opened the dressing room door. She had a feeling of . erii-" barking , on adventure .although- she would never have admitted it to herself. She walked down the narrow circular staircase, swinging her soft skirts and lifting them daintily. There was a man standing with his back to her as she reached the lower step. It was Joel and she had a swift thought: I'm glad it's Joel. I'm feeling much too giddy. "Hello," Joel said with a light in his eye when he saw her. "You've been dolling up?", "I needed to," she said ordinarily because wives don't flirt with their- husbands. At least they didn't in Chester. He noted the flowers at her slender waist, the color in her cheeks and the sparkle in her eyes. "You're cute," he said. ' Janet flushed, she really did. Joel could still dp that to her. He could bring a quick flood of color to her cheeks when his compliment did the same thing to her heart. Joel could do it with such charm. "Like me?" she said and twirled on the brown satin slippers. "Very much," he said. "But look, Jan, you're having a good time, aren't you?" "Grand. Aren't you?" she asked surprised. "Oh sure, great! But ... er ... I've got to be on the set at daybreak tomorrow and I thought I'd run along." Janet was swiftly disappointed. Disappointment was a thin, .dull little thing that ran from her mind down to her dancing toes. '· She smiled and said, "All right, darling, I'll run over to the house and get my bathing things. I left them there but my wrap is in the car." He protested^ at once. "No, Jan, you stay here and have a good time. I'll leave the car for you." " how wil1 you Bet home, "Why," he looked away from her, "as a matter of fact, Nina Harley"-- Nina was the girl with the slumberous eyes -- "is leaving now and she said she'd drive me. Our place is on' her way." "Oh," Janet said. Now she wanted to get away from the party. "Then go along. I'll be in later. Good night, darling." She reached up and kissed him on the tip ot his nose. She wanted to slap him. She walked slowly across the lawn to the marquee. She saw Russell Bede standing in the shadows and her anger at Joel fled. "Are you going to tell me why you were disappointed?" she said softly when she came up to him. "I'm afraid I am," he answered "not that I want to. In fact, little girl, I wish .you'd go away and stay out of my life." But he led her firmly toward the dance floor, and while they danced, Janet could feel his heart thumping when he held her close.
