NEW YORK, S?)_A booming wheat market and broad advance in metals and other commodities set the stage Wednesday for a stock market rise of 1 to 4 or more points despite selling flurries in some spots. Although metals, rubbers, motors and rails were vigorous on the advance, the market was lower m some sectors. Tobaccos were droopy through the session and utilities hesitant. Transactions totaled about 2 800,000 shares. . ' Drawing attention to metal shares was another boost in lead ?,, $ 5 a ton to a new peak since IJ27 and a lift in export copper loon 8 # theh ' best levels £ince 1929 Tin .and zinc continued to point upward. Followers of the utilities were heartened a bit by the San Francisco vote rejecting a municipal ownership plan for purchasing electric distribution facilities. Oils were lively as prospects for an increase in gasoline prices were seen with the approach of the heavy motoring season.

He had much to offer her that she needed. It was Russell who was her prop when she had financial worries; Russell, not Joel, who appreciated the thrill she got when she studied the figures and profits on the theater at Grannis. It- was Hussell who calmed her perturbation over Joel's play. And it was Hussell who offered her work that was to occupy her mind. The play was the first worry that she asked Russell to share with her. After six weeks of rehearsal, at the very moment the play was scheduled to open, a play doctor was called in to make revisions. There was something radically wrong and Joel shared the producer's worries. Finally it opened in Philadelphia and received bad notices. Joel was moody, cross and worried. Janet understood his moods and respected them. She didn't know until she saw the play what vas wrong with it. , The trouble was in Joel himself.

Janet was-sicl: about it o one would ever have known it When the reviewers were out a o\v hours later, she staunchily ·"·eed with Joel that the critics In't know acting when they saw And prayed that the play would survive in spite of the odds against it, in spite of the cuttine reviews. The reviews were not as unkind about Joel as they might have been. The critics respected Joel's nrr.,,l=,rif« and personal Joel's popularity charm. In a iveek it wr~ ob-c!-iu Janet arranged for decorating changes to be made and left the, matter in abeyance. She wanted lo talk it over with Joel but Joel was deep in his new work and had little interest in it. Anything thai Janet wanted done was okay with! him, he said. So Janet put that in the background of her mind. She had something else with which to occupy her thoughts. Russell Beda had again become interested in the merchandising plans she had told him about during the previous summer. Again he offered her a job. He needed those plans, he saidi in his shops. Would Janet work them out relative to the merchandise to be sold and the particular needs of the communities in which they were being sold? He offered her a salary that was pin money to Joe; but represented a great sum to her because it meant that she had done a good job worth so much. Of course, she said she couldn'J do it with out Joel's consent and she had no reason to feel that Joel had changed his mind about his wife having a career. Surprisingly enough, Joel had no obiccliuns. He tweaked her ear kissed her on the nose and told her to go ahead. She "might as well have some fun with her pencils and papers and bits of fabric as to spend all her time playing bridge " If it was a pastime, he hoped she'd have a good time. There was something in Joel's mind then that Janet didn't'know about. She didn't know about the long sleepless nights that he spent staring into the darkness and trying (o take stock of himself. Joel was beginning to come out of the mist hp had lived in for four years a mist that had begun long before that There were things that frightened' him. He was facing a question that many men before him had come upon suddenly. Had he dene the right thing with his life? ;He was beginning to see himself as he was.
