CHICAGO, (IP) -- Sparing livestock prices accompanied. another curtailment in receipts Wednesday. Steers shot up 25 cents to a new peak of $15.50 a hundredweight, the highest t h e y have b e e n since $16 was paid iii May, 1935. Fat Iambs were quoted unchanged in early rounds with a nominal peak of $13.25, the highest since 1930. These pi-ices are -the highest March quotations in eight or nine years. A load 61 steers' averaging 1,498 pounds brought the new peak in today's market, but several loads sold at $14.50 to $15.25. Feeders, common and medium grade steers and she stock and vealers shared in the upturn of cattle. Buyers are in the market now for half fat cattle. The trade for stackers and feeders has been dull ior many weeks but high prices being paid for cattle has tempted many feeders to. take on good quality cattle for fattening. Hogs scored a recovery of 10,to 15 cents a hundredweight when the supply fell 6,000 head short of advance estimates. Top was lifted back to SI0.35 or around last week's high. Some improvement in wholesale prices of top pork loins also .strengthened the swine market. .Choicest loins advanced V 2 cent a pound to 22 cents, highest Jevel since the first of the year. The lamb market was slow and receipts meager. Indications were that prices would s be advanced fur/ ther, although early sales of fat lambs were unchanged.

HE\V YORK, (/P)--With carriers providing the steam, selected stocks plodded upward for gains o£ fractions to 2 or more points in Wednesday's market. Dealings contracted substantially alter a brisk start and near the final hour there was a fairly wide assortment of losers. Transfers were around 2,000,000 shares. Spurring the rails to another climb was overnight news of a "complete agreement" on pensions reached by the roads and unions. Inflation was still discussed In the boardrooms, although opinions differed as to how much influence this had on stocks. At least U. S. government securities fell sharply in the bond division and corporation loans were erratic. Public Utility and Industrial Stocks Quoted by A. M. SCHANKE CO.

CHICAGO, (ff)--Worldwide skyrocketing of wheat values Wednesday accompanied advices that Argentine shippers were buying vheat back from Liverpool merchants, fearing the Argentine government may restrict exports. Big profit taking on price up- urns, however, led to late reac- ions from the day's top quota- ions. Reports of moisture beneficial to domestic crops in western areas served also to' bring about market setbacks.

Janet sprinkled moth powder on er sweaters, folded her tweed' cirts and her old polo coat and anded them to Martha, "I don't think I'll need these hoes either," she said, picking up er sturdy boots and looking at hem with a fond farewell glance, ihe was packing away the things When Janet realized what it meant, it was what that security "would mean .to Joel if he were to stay in the east in the theater and not her triumph that filled her mind. She told Russell how happy he had made her and said that she would have to talk it over with :iat she had worn hanted weeks. the last en- Til keep them right here in nis closet, Janet, and they'll al- vays be here. It isn't as though ou were going far away. At east not yet." Janet sat down in the small ocker. "Martha, sometimes I on't think I'm the same girl I used to be at all. Here I am just iving for today without a thought f tomorrow. Somehow it doesn't eem right." "It seems all right to me. What lave you got to worry about?" Janet shook her head. "Nothing ,nd yet everything. I'm healthy ind happy and we'll always have enough money to take care of us rom the income of the trust fund. But I'm thinking of Joel without ilans. The play is closing next month, on the tenth of June, to be exact, and I don't know what ve're going to do then. Once or wice I've started to ask Joel vhat he plans to do about going acfc to the coast but he has been ;o interested in getting a worm on i fishline or weeding the garden, hat he hasn't even heard me." "Maybe he won't want to go back to the coast," Martha said om the closet. Won't want to! Of course, he vill. The truth is, Martha, that Joel is not a great actor. We layen't talked about it and I don't jelieve that Joel actually knows le isn't, but I do. I'm glad that he vill want to go back to California jecause it will give him a chance ,p make lots more money. This ime I'll see t hat he saves lots more. Then, maybe we'll go around the world some day and do other wonderful things. We're really not old. Joel is only 35 and I'm not yet 30." "Humph!" Martha grunted non- commitally. "We haven't saved very much FI.OUR. (Wednesday Market) MINNEAPOLIS.

Joel was only getting lali what he did on the coast and our bills have been tremendous. I'd like to sub-let the apartment and live out here for part oE the summer and go to the Gape for another part of it. Joel has never even seen our little theater at Grannis?" "Then why don't you?" Marlha asked reasonably. , "Oh, we'll have to be in New York so that Joel can be where things are going on. Then, I'll nave lots of things to do also." Martha stood arms akimbo. "I hope, young lady, that you're not planning to go back to work." "Not this summer, of course, but f Joel' stays in the east; I expect [ will in the autumn. Hussell has 3een pretty fine about it." Russell lad been pretty fine about every- :hng, sending her flowers and Dooks and writing her cheery little notes, telephoning frequently and offering his services for anything they might be put to. "Joel understands about my job. He knows that I need something to keep me occupied." "There'd be nothing like a small Paynter to keep you occupied?" Martha contributed. Janet didn'l answer until she said, "It's almost noon, darling, and Joel will be here for lunch. I want to. be all packed before he comes. He simply loathes last minute packing." "Janet r-aynter, you stop thinking of Joel and think of yourself for once." But J/anet could no more have stopped thinking of Joel and started thinking of herself than she could have changed the color of ler eyes. She was thinking of him when Hussell Bede came to her and made an offer that was to be the triumph of her business life. He told her that he had been waiting for her recovery to tell her the important news that he was opening a shop in New York, that the financial results of her work and help had been so great that it was only fair to offer her a partnership in the New York shop and a salary of $25,000 a year to run it. He didn't want to burden her while she yvas ill but he wanted her to consider it during the summer and plan to start in the autumn with the opening. He had planned- an imposing, four-floor shop on East Fifty-Seventh street. Joel. Joel's show was closing a few days after that conversation and Joel was moody. She decided to wait until he had a new show or made a professional move, before she broached the subject. Nevertheless, she cherished the idea. The honor, for Janet Paynter to have quietly carved a career on her own, to have'achieved the distinction of being offered a partnership in a shop destined for great success, was a nobler accomplishment than she had ever dreamed in those far off days when she had been an assistant buyer in a department store. : How proud of her her father would have been! And Martha. And Joel?Joel, who didn't believe women should have careers; Joel who had been a gigolo in a cocktail bar so that he could support his wife; Joel who had despised men who allowed their wives to earn their joint livelihood. B u t . . . Already she began to dread that little word, knowing the weakness of any argument she might have. One afternoon she ordered her car and told the chauffeur to take her to Dick Hyman's office. Hyman was Joel's agent in New York. "I'm a very curious woman, Mr. Hyman," she said with a pretty smile. "I'm wondering what you have up your sleeve for Joel. I h a p p e n e d to be passing and thought this would be a good time to drop in and have a little visit with you." "I'm glad you did, Mrs. Paynter." He sighed. "I can't make that boy out any more. You may be able to put m° straight." Janet felt herself shiver. This wasn't the way Hyman had talked a few months before. "What's the matter with him?" he shot at her. "Suppose you tell me what you think it is," she countered. He shrugged his shoulders. "I might call it temperament, but it ain't! Of course, you know he's washed up in A pictures." "Washed up!" Janet could feel herself bristle. "Why, Joel is one of the top-notch box office draws." "Was," he corrected. "You have to face these things, Mrs. Paynter. I can get Joel a good contract in Hollywood but it ain't as good as he had. The public forgets and when the hold on the box office slips, trie contract slips. But he won't even talk about a contract. He can work up again but he-don't say anything when I ask him about what he wants me to do. He. oughta know he can't' get another play this season. One play was as much as his public'll take. Maybe you can talk to him." "I'll try," she said and got up. She was completely disconcerted, to astonished and frightened to have the agent say anything more. She.didn't talk about it to Joel for several days and then, when she asked him what he wanted to do, he got up, walked over to the mantle and put his head on his arms. "I'm washed up, Janet. I don't want to go back to pictures. I don't know what I want. I only know that I'm a ham and I'm scared! Does that mean anything NOTICK OF THE APPOINTMENT OF AD5IINISTKATHIX GOVER.V3fE.VT BONDS.
