FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 9 · 1937 HOG PRICES DROP 10 TO 15 CENTS PRODUCERS STEP UP MARKETINGS Cattle Trade Active With Some Weighty Steers Up Shade. . CHICAGO,, (/P)--Hog producers stepped up the volume of market- ings Tuesday to take advantage o£ the past week's substantial upturn in prices but the increased supply caused a 10 to 15 cent drop in the market. ' Heeeipts totaled 21,000, or about '·4,000 head more than expected. The price decline was general throughout the market. Some light weights were oil more in spots and packing sows were 5 to 10 cents down. Top sank to $10.35. The cattle market was active and in some cases choice weighty steers commanded shade, higher prices. There was nothing on hand valued to sell at Monday's S15 peak, but some good steers sold up to $14.50.' Few, however, brought more than $12.50. Packers, 'after most meaty steers to fill ' requirements for numbers, look many animals suitable for further finish. . Traders said the plain 'quality of receipts indicates that the crop of stock fed for winter markets has been virtually exhausted. Hepoi\s irom some sources were that only isolated parts of the corn belt and far west have cattle finished enough to grade good or choice in the current market. The lamb market was slow but sellers were holding their best offerings /around $12.25,' or u changed to a shade higher. Livestock commission men announced ah increase of approximately 8 per cent in rates, they charge farmers for handling shipments, effective April 1.

NEW YORK, (flp)--Metals led a selective rally in Tuesday's stock market but strike news dampened buying spirits to some extent and many issues were unable to push forward. ' Favored steels, oils, vails, farm implements and specialty stocks made headway from the start. Gains o£ fractions to 2 points were plentiful. There were several much wider upturns. i Activity, pronounced in the first hour, slowed considerably later. Dealings were faster in the last lap. Transfers were around 2,400,000 shares. In the sliding column were General Motors,' Chrysler, Briggs Mfg., Consolidated Edison, General Electric, American Tobacco "B," Liggett and Myers "B" and Douglas Aircraft.

They ad been two shy, hopeful young- ter3 four years before, proud of leir new clothes, their joint runk and their shining suitcases, 'hey had faced an unknown fu- ure that they litt'le dreamed was 0 carry them to a peak of riches nd fame. When they waved their depar- ure from the platform of the ast-bound Century they were no onger shy youngsters. They were icople of the world. They had 14 lieces of hand baggage and 12 runks. In her arrms Janet carried er jewel case. Over her arm here was a mink coat. There was 1 sable wrap, a silver fox cape nd an ermine uoat in one of the runks. Her bank books were in \ci- jewel box. But the figures in ler bank book were astonishingly ow compared to the sums that ad poured into the banks. There were a few thousand dol- ars and the $6,000-a-year inter- on the trust fund of $125,000 that Janet had made Joel salt away during the past year. There houW have been a quarter of a million. There should have been a great deal more than there was. They had sold the white house because Joel said when they re- urned he wanted to build a dif- erent type oE house. So they sold t to a newcomer, one Chris Gaynor, a rather prettyish type of 'ounff actor who had come to (he :creen direct from college. The louse had cost a great deal of mone3' and the sale price was a air amount but what profit there vas in it had gone to pay taxes. To Janet's great surprise, Joel did not really own his expensive car. It was mortgaged to a finance company. The town car was hers nnd Joel had insisted on sending t east. She parted with her furniture and appointments with less reluc- ance than she had expected. It vas silly of them to ship their furniture when they could sell it on the coast and get what they wanted to fit into their new place. The new place was a penthouse on the East river. Janet felt that if ever they had a chance to make a new start, heir return to New York should mark it. She demurred at the ex- the out pensive rental charge for penthouse but Joel pointed ,,,,. *hat they could well afford it even ;hoirgh his salary in the theater vas to be less than half what it lad been in pictures. "We 1 can't live cramped up in a dark apartment," Joel complained, 'after living an outdoor life. Besides, it will only be for the season and there'll be more money when we go back to the coast." They had planned to go to Europe the next summer when Joel's play closed. Janet began to have doubts about that long .awaited European trip when she saw the figures of the bank balance but she wouldn't say anything.about it to Joel because he was so happy in his anticipation of doing a play. Janet was happy about it, too, because it gave her back a feeling about Joel's integrity and she wouldn't have exchanged that for anything in the world. Perhaps it was because she was an easterner that she took more joy in getting ready for their new home than she ever had in any of them in California. They lived in a Park avenue hotel during their first month in New York and Janet shopped for the furnishings for their apartment, patiently superintended the painters and decorators while Joel was busy at rehearsals. Janet never went to rehearsals with him. He asked her once or twice if she would like to do so, but, remembering his dislike o£ having her on the set when he was working, she refused. She found that her own world of work kept her busy. She was happier that September than she had been in the last four years. She had time to renew old acquaintances, to run up to Chester and see the old friends who were dear to her. She spent hours in the .shops, buying nothing, but feasting her eyes oh things sl«e had not seen before. She often dismissed her car and rode in subways and on the buses just to feel herself of a part of something, she had never forgotten. One afternoon she stood at the corner- ot Fifth avenue and Sixtieth street and remembered the day that she had stood there with hot tears stinging her eyelids because heat and poverty had got her down, because she was sick with worry for Joel who had married her and therefore had to support the burden of a wife. She wouldn't let Joel even see the apartment until the last rug was down, the last chair in place, the last picture hung. She had brought on her own rugs and pictures, linens and silver. But she bought new furniture for the wainscotted_drawing room with fireplace that Jong windows the huge Tudor faced a wall of or agents as they may deem necessary Any officer or director at a regular meeting of the stockholders, or at a special meotini; called for that purpose may be removed and his-successor may )= elected by the aflirmative vote of two-thirds of all of the stock (hen outstanding.

The cook came in by day. There was a "study" for Joel, a dining room and a small spare room. It was a spacious, gracious apartment but not large according to Hollywood standards. But Janet easily forgot her Holfrwood. standards and loved the place. She showed it proudly to Joel the night thai-it was finished when Joel had a brief respite from rehearsal's. He was working hard and looking tired, a little older, she noted with a troubled frown. Later she was lo wonder i£ she had done the right thing taking him from California. At least, California hsrl been healthful. But for a much longer time she ivas-»n know that she had done the one right thing of her .life. That, however, was much later. When she was established in her new home, she got around at last to tackling the mound o£ mail that had awaited her. She had tossed her letters into a bag and forgotten about them.
