FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 6 · 1937 NO CHANGE IN LIVESTOCK PRICES TOP $10,3 5 IN SWINE MARKET Retail Movement in Meat Still Slow as Expected During Lent. CHICAGO, (£»)--Li v e s t o c fc prices were nominally unchanged Saturday at the week's sharp advance. The few hogs .sold were on an unchanged basis. Top was $10.35, lands of value to sell at Friday's $10.40 peak being absent. With" cattle soaring to a $'15 top, highest in .14 months, and lambs to $11.75, highest since June, both peak prices for Mai-ch in seven years, livestock costs scored the most pronounced upturn in some time this week. .There was no corresponding gain in wholesale meat quotations, 'however, although some reports indicated the market had strengthened. Livestock men said further declines in receipts, both here and at the 20 markets, -constituted prob- bably the greatest strengthening factor in the trade but the generally improved industrial conditions including rising wages could not be overlooked. Retail movement is still slow, but this is to be expected during the Lenten season, it was pointed out. Choice cattle gained 50 to '75 cents this week with some sales up $1. Common and medium grades shared in the upturn, advancing 25 to 50 cents. She stock also moved higher. The general quality of cattle offerings declined, however. With nearly half o£ the week's fat lamb supply from Colorado, prices advanced 50 to 75 cents, closing at the week's top. Good and choice hogs gained 10 to 25 cents during the week but medium grades were 10 to 25 cents lower, there being an increase in the proportion of these kinds marketed.

His face was turned from her and in the few minutes that followed his asking her to marry him, Janet saw in the firm set of his features, lighted by the moonlight, an expression of steady waiting that she had never seen on his face before. She saw the man that he was the man whose willpower, whose brain, whose foresight and determination has made a fortune ou of a slipping business, the man who was accustomed to getting what he wanted and giving lul value in return. Oh. yes, he would give full value in return. But he had come too late. "Russell," she said softly. "I am not only married but I am married happily." Still she didn't say that she loved Joel; she thought that he would have known it. "Some day you will marry me,' he said evenly. "Janet, I am no boy to speak impulsively. Nor are you a young girl who would misunderstand. I knew the first night I met you that you were the girl I wanted to marry. In these few weeks I have learned much about you--and your husband." Janet was going to protest that he could not have known anything about Joel but she kept silent. "You give and he takes." "I like giving," she said simply. "And he likes taking and that is wrong, my girl. The time will come, as it inevitably does in such a design for living as these people out here practice, when that unbalanced weight will topple. Like and like are the only ones who find and use the qualities 'that survive." 'But Joel and I are alike," she said and thought she said it aloud but it.was only a question, not a statement, in her mind. "You were a couple ot,kids who fell in love. Kids who turned out to be diametrically opposite. I am not being impertinent, Janet, in saying this. It's important to me. I know you as well as though I'd known you a lifetime. I know fhe extent of your courage, your loyally snd your love. And I dare to criticize you. I dare to tell you -hat you cannot make a success of the thing you have so nobly begun, that you are building a castle on sand. Hollywood marriages do not last. You have the worlcT at your gates, the world that will give more than you can. That world gives things which your husband vants (hat you haven't got simply Because it must be multiplied to lave value." Janet said nothing but her face vas as set as his own. "Do you talk about the future? Are you building things together? ^o tomorrows count in your mar- ·iage? Do you believe that you can make this transient thing last? iow'." 1 "Russell, you don't know me. You said that you knew my courage, my loyalty and my love. You' don't really know my love. You don't know that it isn't a fragile emotion, that it is more than my leart. It's my everything and vith it goes determination and strength. I forgive you for talking about marriage as you have because I can see where you get four ideas out here. You know hat Joel is a .matinee idol and hat women are crazy about him but you don't know him." It was then that he kept silent, e h»d learned to judge men, he believed. "You don't know what my plans are. You only see that we are childless, that we have no obvious plans for life-long ties. I've hought of those things but these are Joel's years and he shall have hem as he wants them. We have all the years of our life together -ihead. My marriage is going to ast because I'm going to make it ast I'm going to hold my husband only because he'll want to be icld. 1 am equal to meeting all he circumstances that arise in our marriage and when a circum- tance arises that threatens its tructure, I shall find the open door if I have to look for it! I shall be honest with you . . ." "You couldn't ever be anything else," he said. "When I was first married, an older friend told me not to mange my husband. She said that I vas to keep an iron hand in a vel- 'et glove. No man ha's since seen nything except the velvet glove but the hand is iron within. Not to any other person in the world, my husband least of all, would I say what I am saying to you. I am ruthless, strong, capable, Russell, with that hand. I can manage and manipulate and have no one the wiser it it means Joel's h'ap- piness and mine. I have no conscience about using it and a code that will forever keep me from admitting that I ever have." "How can you be happy?" he asked after a little while. "Is my lot so different from that of other women? What woman lives who loves her husband and is not called upon to mold in some way the things, that she wants to hold?" "I don't know," he said. "I don't know women. I only know that 1 want you and that 1 want to offer you everything I think you should have. To me, you are a fragile, lovely woman and as such I want always to have you near me in such a way that you would have no need of this fierce protection of your happiness. If I have said too much, forgive me." "Of course, I forgive you," she said and was grateful that the light"; of the harbor were nearing. "The question will still be there if you ever change your mind, Janet. I'm going east tomorrow but I'm not going out of your life. I will always be there if you ever need me." "Perhaps I will some day," sh aid, and little realized that she would. She tried to forget' the things that he said to her that night but they came back one by one bringing anger at his daring, anger that was softened because she knew that he loved her and that she should never have let him. Joel was asleep when she got in that night and she went to look at him as though he were her baby. He was sleeping with his arm thrown over her pillow. His face in reposeful sleep pointed "up the wistfulness that had made it famous on th'e screen. She looked at him tenderly with! the lump that always rose in her throat when she saw him unguarded in sleep. She remembered that Russell Bede had said he needed her. She was close then to knowing the thing that had bounci them together from the beginning, the age old appeal that was greater in her heart than any other. If only those peaceful, confident emotions and that knowledge could have stayed with her! But there was the business o£ living a thousand emotions a day, following the ordinary routine of social and professional life. The autumn and winter wore on and another spring came again after Russell Bede had left, leaving Janet with little nerve ends newly sensitive to the life around her, to the dangers that threatened her and Joel. She had been aware of them before but they had been kept in the back of her mind. With the passing o£ those months, s h e w a s increasingly aware of the strong pull of studio e and studio associations that were giving her less and less of Joel's time. She was aware of his brief infatuation for his leading lady and his not-so-brief-one for another girl who had recently joined the film colony as a writer. She thought: I know that this will work out all right because the others always have. But--and the word BUT was big in her mind--this can't go on forever. This bridge will widen the distance between us until I will always be conscious of it and then I will be just a habit with Joel fahe was conscious that he no longer cared about art at all He was satisfied, perfectly satisfied with his life and utter satisfaction was ruinous. At last she began to cast about lo the manipulation, she once had ;poken about to Russell Bede that was quickly fading. She resolved to get Joel out oC Hollywood. And she thought she had found the way when she heard that three of the leading film stars were deserting the screen for a season on the legitimate stage. She knew the weakness in Joel's armar and she proceeded to work on it To Be Continued) VIrs. Chase Dies at Osage; Was Wife of Great Western Agent OSAGK--Mrs. D. N.
