.L-ct^-'^^a^^^^t^jff'ras^^ FOURTEEN , MASON ; CITY. GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 5 · 1937 LIVESTOCK PRICES ABOUT STEADY TOP ON HOGS AT CHICAGO SI 0.40 General Price Rise Trend Contributes to Market Strength. CHICAGO, .() -- L I v e s t a c k prices held to Thursday's level in a quiet trade Friday. Receipts contracted to the usual small volume for Friday although the hog run was a little larger than a week ago. Most sales in early rounds throughout the yards \veie on an unchanged basis. » Livestock men said the general trend of rising prices along with wage boosts contributed underlying strength in the live market that to a large extent prompted the rather sharp advance in hog, cattle and sheep prices this week. At the same time, it was reported, the slightest increase in meat prices caused consumers to back away. Reports from the east earlier in the week indicated that wholesale prices were raised slightly at some distributing points but later advices showed. the movement of meat in these regions has slowed to some extent. There'was little if any change in local wholesale pork and beef quotations. : Ordinarily, during the Iienten season, only unusual supply circumstances create active livestock buying like that .witnessed the latter part of this week on a rising: market. -Receipts have been decreased slightly and are running substantially below the volume marketed through much o£ the winter. Friday's hog market top was $10.40. The peak in cattle was $13.75, being the quotation on the best beef steers available. This compared with the week's top of $15, which . still is the nominal peak of the market. Some common and medium steers weighing less than 1,000 pounds tended lowe ·the bulk selling at ?8.50 down. Early top bids for lambs wer around $11.50.

NEW YORK, ()--Stocks wer whirled up 1 to 5 or more point: in Friday's market as trader scrambled for {he steels and rails A heavy buying wave in the livst hour swept many leaders to new recovery tops and, for a time the ticker tape was several minutes behind flood dealings. Led by U. S. Steel with a jump across 125 to a six year peak large. blocks of the favorite changed hands. Profit selling latei stemmed Ihe tide and extreme gains were reduced in many instances near the final period. General Electric picked up after early apathy. Transfers were around 2,700,000 shares. Spurring the upturn, brokers said, was "big steel's" announcement of a sharp increase in prices of its products, which was expected to more than overcome boosted payrolls, shorter hours and expanding material costs. Few repercussions were noted from the French decision to inaugurate a free gold market. Fresf labor difficulties and the pfesi- dent's victory dinner speech were also seen as negligible influences Curb Market -·-':,, YORK.

Reasons for Ihc Irading apathy were marled In inveslmenl circles, Ihe niost requenlly offered cxplanallon being that uHrn-cnullousness had resulted f r o m the ossibility of Ihe withdrawal of foreign unds from this country following the expected pegging of the French franc. Apprehension over such a contingency ailed to generate any appreciable amounl of selling orders, however, and Wall streel gradually inclined lo Ihe opinion that imporlant repalriation of 'orcign funds was something less than i'kely.

Joel's company was on location in Death Valley for nearly thre weeks. As soon as Janet and Joel were alone on his return she said, "Darling, I have something to tell you and you are not to get angry." Joel ruffled her hair, hugged her shamelessly before the waitress and grinned. "My Scotel bride has overdrawn her allowance at last! Never mind, honey as long as you look as pretty as you do in that green thingamam- bob"--the green thingamabob was a slinky, silky negligee--"I don't mind." "No, it's not money, dear," Janet protested. "It's a man." Joel's arm tightened. So did his mouth. "You see how unreasonable you are?" she said lightly. "You haven't heard about it yet and you are angry already." "Well, let's hear about it." "It's nothing serious at all. Only, to quote you, I'd rather you heard about it from me instead of from someone else. Remember when you said that to me'.'" That was the only time that Janet was ever to remind him that she had done her part. "Go on, go on," he said impatiently and Janet wished that she had said nothing. "It's only that while you were away I've been playing a lot of tennis, gone lo some parties with our crowd and seen some movies. Since I was an extra girl and most of the parties were given by Caroline, I've been escorted by Russell." "Russell?" "Of course," she answered impatiently. "Russell Bede, Caroline's brother. You met him . the night . . . the night o£ herbig parly." "Oh," he said atler a minute, "1 remember him. Your beau." The way he said it made her [eel relieved.

He looked a trifle guiltily into he shining eyes of his wife and lad the grace to feel himself a ool. A lucky one lo have Janet for his own! Joel did not find vords easy. He had never been able lo say the things to Janet that ^e felt. He would have been em- larrassed to tell her that he not inly loved her but admired her as an individual. And , that he frequently had his moments when he vondered why she loved him or vhat he had ever deserved to have he one girl in the world for his vife. He tried to do it in another way. iis first thought was for her when he had money. His greatest pleas- Ji-e was to buy her luxurious gifts vhich he always felt were yet not nough, There was no question in is mind about being faithful to er. He was married to her--lie ad never wanted to be married-- nd she knew that. It was true lat he found other women at- ractive, that he fed upon their lattery and that he had no inten- ions of foregoing it. But it never ccurred to him that he might ause Janet any pain or that she night not be able to read his mind. Manlike, he gave no thought to le evenlual oulcome oJf their narriage. They were married and hat was that. They were happy, oved each other, lived without vorries and in harmony. They vere companions. They accepted ach other. He didn't know that vomen do not lake those things or granted and Janet didn't know hat he'did. If she had tried lo talk to him bout their tomorrows, he would ave laughed them off, been sur- rised and probably hurt by any lought she might have had thai le ties between them were not Irong enough. He bav- icrs against the future and nil angers in the present. His momentary anger had not een jealousy of a romantic nature le night that he had come upon anet and Russell Bede on the ter- ace. He had been angry because e had heard Russell Bede say. This will be a secret between us"" t didn't occur lo him for a mo- nent that it was anything but an nnocent secret. Yet he hadn't liked anet to give even that much of erself. And then he had forgollen all about the incident. Forgetting was easy to Joel. He had forgotten that Janet had been upset about Carol Griest and that red-headed girl. It didn't seem possible to him, or wouldn't if he had known that Janet was jealous oE Nina. All o£ Janet's talk on another occasion about jealousy, he had accepted as something she had heard about enced. His baby! "So what does all this confession lead up to?" he asked affeclion- ately. "Am I to be the irale husband and go out and beat up Ihe fellow?" "Oh, Joel, you're so cule! The whole thing is forgotten now but I wanted you to know about it because things get so distorted in telling out here. Someone is sure to tell you that your wife has been shamelessly flaunting a new man while you were away. As a matter of fact," she went on boldly, "I've been having a lovely time. No afternoon bridge sessions, no gab-fests with a lot of girls who never have anything new to say anyway. It's all been nice and healthy and ouldoorish and if you don't mind I'd ralher like to conlinue for Ihe next three days." "Why only the next three days?" Joel answered generously. "Russell is reluming east Sat- urday and we've some things planned. We're going fishing on. Hal's boat Friday. Do you think you can come?" "Not a chance," he said regretfully. "We're way behind shooting schedule now and we'll be working late for the rest of the week but we'll have a trip to Mexico as soon as we wind up." "Sure you don't mind if I go?" "I'm sure I don't," he answered readily. Janet was sincerely disappointed that Joel couldn't go on, the fishing party. She was correct m feeling that she needed hig moral support. The parly was given Ihe last day before Russell Bede's departure and Janet had. nn uncanny feeling that Russell was going lo break his silence. She didn't expect him to do it quite so abruplly or as surprisingly as he did. Hal Schirmer's boat was not (1 fishing smack. It was a sleek, white yacht, luxuriously appointed on ils spacious decks and its lounges and staterooms. It was big enough to make for) privacy for those who wanted it. There were 12 i n the parly and Janet clung lo the groups, avoiding Russell Bede without seeming to do so. He had been strangely quiet on the drive to the harbor- and more lhan once she saw him. looking at her in a queer, sleacly way that was disconcerting. Instinctively, she knew that he was going lo say something important lo her and she knew she was not prepared for it. He didn't speak, other than to Ipm the general conversation, until they were steaming back to port. Janet had been sitting with Hal and his wife. Russell joined them and Janet was left alone with him when Gertrude Schirmer followed ler husband forward to speak to the captain. "Janet," Russell said without preamble, "will you marry me?" "Russell! I am married!" "I know that, certainly. I'll ask you again: Will you marry me?"
