CAN BE PURCHASED ON TERMS AS LOW AS $1.25 A MONTH. PEOPLES GAS AND ELECTRIC CO. Immediately upon the stroke of midnight Thursday evening, New Year's begins. Will the stork be.on his way to Mason City then? Or will it be around 1 a. m., or even later? Nobody knows. It is possible at times to estimate the corn crop or forecast the weather to some degree, but in this instance we must wait and see. Official records will decide. It is enough to say that the first baby born in Mason City on New Year's will receive the gifts listed on this page from the firms who have so graciously tendered them. Don't you think it's quite on array of things? But a baby born here in Mason City is worth more than all the things you could pile in the armory. Into whose home will the tiny stranger come to bring good cheer and happiness? Will it be a boy or girl? This is a matter that-can well be considered now because Friday. Jan. 1, is New Year's day. And judging by his past activities friend Stork is a busy bird, takes no holidays and is as likely to come on New Year's as any other day. His night shift is as crowded with excitement as the day shift. Incessantly he plies his vocation so that the world may be a better place in which to live and that we older folk may have something to strive for. Many of Mason City's businessmen want to extend greetings of the New Year to next year's first citizen and expect to do so in a substantial way when he arrives. Each firm shown on this page is going to make the gift indicated to this baby. Of course, the little one will not know or understand now, but in later years it is hoped that he or she will prize the little treasures and appreciate the welcoming spirit in which they were offered. In case a boy and a girl are born, within the city limits of Masoif City, at identically the same time, the girl will be the winner. If two boys or two girls are brought by the stork to two different homes at the same time, the one whose parents live the closer to the Cerro Gordo county courthouse, will receive the gifts. $5.00 To Mason City's First 1937 Baby We will open a Savings Account for the first 1937 Baby born in Mason City.
