CHICAGO, (IP)--Hog and cattle prices held to an unchanged basis Monday. Receipts in these departments were a little larger than expected, offsetting the strengthening effect of higher wholesale beef and pork prices, "reflecting im- · proved demand for. meat. . With 21,000 head of hogs on liand, the market was generally steady although a few sales were a shade lower. .Top was §10.30. Choicest steers and yearlings tended higher because of the very small supply of these but common and medium grades were slow and unchanged. Oflfl Lots Steers. Although some odd lot. steers topped at 515,' few loads sold above $12.50, with the bulk being quoted down from $11.50. The general run of steer prices are the highest in 22 months although the top was matched 14 months ago. The phenomenal advance in lambs, which promises to place lamb roasts in a specialty class for the Easter trade, continued when a-eceipts fell sharply below advance estimates. With comparatively few lambs available, and wiost oi these from Colorado, indications were that packers would pay $12.75. and better for choice offerings. The lamb peak of $12.85, paid .last April, was the highest for any time since 1930. Meat Prices Advance. Advancing whoesale meat prices indicated consumer demand was improving although some traders said the upturns reflected recent livestock price gains more than anything else. Beef carcasses were quoted unchanged to % cent .a pound higher at 11% to 19 cents, and pork loins were 1 to Vf- cents up, or the highest since early .Tanuary. The range on loins was 17 to 21% a pound. The average price of cattle last week was $10.55, compared with $8.75 a year ago, $11 in 1935 and §5.35 in 1933. Hogs averaged $10.15 'against $10.20 a year ago and $3.95 in 1933. Lambs averaged $12 against $10 a year ago and $5.50 in 1933. Lighter tonnage, better, demand lor dressed beef and good prices for cattle by-products, especially hides which are the highest in nine years in some cases, helped ·"'the cattle market.

NEW YORK,'(IP)--Stock market leaders found support Monday after a morning slide in which many slipped fractions to two or more points. Helpful in stemming the downward move was the estimate of the American Iron and Steel institute that this week's mill operations were up 1.6 per cent over the preceding week at 88.9 per cent of capacity, a new mark since September, 1929. \Vhile small losses were in the majority near the final hour, a number of specialties edged forward. Dealings were slow. Transfers were around 2,100,000 shares. Curb Market NEW YORK, (/F;--Selective buying sent some specially shares forward tor fair gains in a mixed curb market Monday. Advances ranging up to around 2 points were recorded for Pacific Tin Special. Pan American Airways and Atlantic Pacific.

' CHICAGO-Monday nutal--Importing countries acain took ?ood sized quantities of wheat. Italy being reported as having taken three cargoes of Argentine wheat and Grecse two cargoes. Later in the session sales of Canadian wheat were placed at from HI rmllion to 2.000.000 with the United kingdom. Antwerp, Rotterdam. Swcdcii and Finland the buyers. Export business of this size naturally caused not only a strong opening but advancing quotations during the session. May wheat in Winnipeg: at one time was more than 3c a bushel higher than Saturday's close and vhllc our market was strong our advances were not in proportion with those at Winnipeg.. In fact the difference be- ween their May and ours narrowed to about 3c. We would not be surprised at H cessation /or a day or two at least in leavy buying of wheat by importers and htreforc would use care in following sharp market advances, as our prices lave a tendency to drag somewhat be- lind Winnipeg and Liverpool, corn--corn market advanced about Ic bushel Monday, mostly on the strength n wheat as trade in this grain was coin- larativeiy light. At tiie close of the Week Argentine corn from spot stocks In New Yurk was quoted 35c to SCTc a bushel and new Argentine corn for May shipments was offered in cargo lots at 04c c. i. f. American ports, duty paid. One of the arge elevator concerns in Illinois said he failure of the country to materially ncrcase their corn marketings on the ipturn in prices would seem to confirm hat there is a scarcity of supplies back n farmers' cribs. A very large pcrcent- Tge of cribs have little or no corn for the narket. There is n tight cash corn sltua- lon in Ohio but Argentine corn is underselling domestic corn in the cast and south.

DflYTHffT I FORGET CHAPTER 45 JANET opened her eyes slowly and wriggled her nose. She inhaled deeply adn felt the pangs of hunger. She tried to remember what scent it was that rose so deli ciously. Frying ham! And in Martha Colby's house in Chester. "Oh, gosh!" she said in her thread-thin voice. She couldn't remember when she had said that so appreciatively. Or for that matter, when she had smelled anything so good. She accepted that pleasure for all it was worth. She didn't think of anything but ham and her hunger. She didn't even move in the big double brass bed. She liked that bed. She liked the soft patchwork quilt folded across the foot of it where her length did not reach. She liked the spotless dimity curtains swaying lightly in the warm April air. She liked the old fashioned dresser and the small three-legged table beside her bed. There was no chromium Here, no silken drapes, no luxurious satin and French prints. She concentrated on the dresser, trying to pick out the objects there. The china vase and the fat pincushion with hatpins in it. The button box and the hair receiver, the sweet grass handkerchief basket and Martha's worn Bible. There were other things there; :ier own monogrammed mirror and brush and comb. They didn't belong there. On the table beside her there was a low bowl filled with pansies. She tried to remember if pansies -vere yet in season. She couldn't, ;o she abandoned the thought. She concentrated on the dappled sun- Jght on the faded carpet. Again the pain of hunger assailed her and she called. "Martha!" There was no answer. Janet's voice was reed-like; it wouldn't lave carried beyond the room. For two 'weeks she had lain in ,hat big bed and only these last .hrce days had she been able to speak. Oh, she had spoken but the hings she had said she had cried out in fever. And when the level- passed, she had been too weak, too exhausted to think of anything she .vanted to say. Then she remembered that Marha had left a silver bell on the :able for her to ring. She looked at the bell and it pleased her. It represented a little pig and Martha lad bought it at the church fair without any thought of ever using it. Finally, Janet remembered what it was for. She reached for it feebly. "Well, Miss, it's lime you were awake. Do you know it's Sunday morning and time good people were up?" That was'Martha's little -joke. Janet couldn't have stood up even if it had been Judgment day. Martha put her tray down, not without noting the anticipation in her patient's face. Janst raised herself by both hands and then Martha's strong hands were under, her arms and arranging pillows at her back. Martin chatted while she arranged a much worn, very soft pink knitted shawl over the small figure of Janet v/hich was both pathetic and ridiculous wrapped in one of Martha's spacious "Filipino" night dfess(-s. "Feel like eating a real good meal today?" "Have an appetite like a stevedore's, Martha, you know t haven't been ill, I've just been pretending. No one could possibly have an appetite like this one and have been ill." "Of course you weren't seriously ill. honey. You were just tired out and refused to admit it. When we won't face that kind of fatigue, natura makes us. Now, medicine first/' She held a spoon with a thick green liquid in it and Janet swallowed it, making the proper face lhat goes with swallowing medicine. She had been going to say something but Martha had forestalled it. When she had eaten a fair share of hot rolls and strawberry jam, with her delicious pink ham and a cup cf coffee rich with thick cream, she settled back to have a talk \vith Martha. "Martha, don't you think it's time I did a little explaining?" she began. "About what, I'd like to know! Do I have to have an explanation just because my baby comes to me when she's ill? I should say not!" "But, Martha, there are so many things I want to tell you. I want to tell you what a coward I was and about Joel and . . . and Russell." "Of course you do! Thai's what comes of spoiling you. You think you're going to take up my whole Sunday morning talking about that husband of yours again. Isn't it bad enough that he keeps me runiiing up and downstairs an- ] swering the telephone all day long without you having to add to my burdens?" Martha bustled about and straightened things up witira fine show of friendly annoyance; "Joe. . . . is . . . ?" "Didn't I tell you?" Martha said beaming. "If you're a very good girl and rest now, then if you eat some broth at 1 o'clock and nap for an hour, you can have a visit from your husband. He's coming out this afternoon." "Martha"--Janet's tone arrested the older woman--"I don't think I'm up to seeing Joel." Martha sat down in the low rocking chair which she had pulled up to the bedside. She took one of Janet's blue veined hands into hers. "Do you want to tell me why?" she asked. "I want to tell you lots of things when I feel stronger Martha. I didn't know I was going to be ill when .1 came. I only knew that I wanted to be with you and . . . away from everyone else. I still . . . oh, I mean that I feel so peaceful, so rested. I haven't felt this way in nearly five years, Martha. Somehow I want to hold on to this." Martha didn't know whether she should let Janet go. Dr. Rogers had said Janet was not to talk but Martha had seen doctoring as many years as he had. And she had her own ideas. "You want to hold on to everything, Janet. And the other things are 110 harder than this. They're there and all for you just as I am." "I don't know," Janet said dubiously. "But I do," Martha said staunchly. "And when you are well and strong again, and the doctor says you'll be like a new girl in another two weeks after this fine rest" (the doctor had said that Janet would be all right as soon as the storm clouds cleared away) "you'll sec that it is. I've been having many a long talk with Joel, dear." "Martha! Have you truly?" Janet held lighter to Martha's hand. "Jan," Martha said in a very low voice, "you do love Joel, don't you?" _ "Yes, with all my heart. When I came out to you that night I was so confused I didn't know where I was. I can hardly believe it now but then I was . . I thought I was in love with another man. But I'm not! I'm not!" "Of course you're not," Martha said soothingly and began to do little things about Janet's pillows and pulling the covers up to her chin. "Now, you're going to have a nap and dream about the nice fresh start you're going to get" To her surprise Jnnet began to cry softly. , "Now, what is the matter? Have I tired you, dear?" "Wo," Janet said, wiping her eyes with the bed sheet. "Except Martha, that's the trouble with Joel and me. It's too late to get a fresh start. I've ruined Joel's life by making him a success. And now it's all too involved to find our way back." "Stuff and nonsense!" Martha pronounced. "If you say one word of that to Joel this afternoon, I'll forbid him to come here again mind you! I won't have you talking about his career until I telJ you you're well enough."
