Approximately 1,000 persons visited the home din-ing the open nouse period. Of these, close to 800 were present for the services, according to Pastor E. M. Mueller-* superintendent of the home. More than $1,000 in contributions to the home was brought in at the offerings held at the 2 services. Performing: Good Service Those who work among the aged are performing a service of consecration,for in their care are men and women in the last lap of their lives before facing eternity, the Rev. August Hoeger, Fargo, N. Dak., superintendent of the Good Samaritan society, stated. "Before we took on this project of converting this old St. Luke's hospital building into a home for the aged, I went into one of the rooms, knelt and prayed for Divine guidance," he said. The Rev. Alvin N. Rogness stated that homes for the care of the aged is a direct outgrowth of the teachings of the Christian church. That the Good Samaritan home meets a need in caring for the aged in a period when the life span is constantly being lengthened was pointed out by the Rev. E. A. Biedermann. In so many cases old age is most pathetic, commented Mayor Howard E. Bruce in congratulating the society upon establishing this fine home for the sunset life period of men and women. Backing Project Homes such as this make the last days of the aged pleasant ones said Doctor Lloyd Gustafson, stating that he and his people—members of the First Methodist church are helping to back this project.

Jacobs Recalls Early Days of Bancroft Ball A gentleman much interested in the fortunes of baseball came into the Globe-Gazette office over the weekend and being a former resident of Bancroft he was naturally hopeful that Joe Hatten would get a chance on the mound for Brooklyn in the World Series. Fortunately Joe went to the hill for his "quick" workout just after the ex-Bancrofter left our office and that made the explanation less embarrassing for all of us. But Theodore Jacobs, 70, 204 6th S. E., did not depart without reminiscing through some of baseball's brilliant past at Bancroft. With "Irish" Murray Jacobs was one of the "wheels" of Bancroft baseball in days gone by, with the late Art Murray and others. Murray, who was known to all his cronies as "Irish," played 3rd and Jacobs at 2nd. And the pair, being 2 of the older heads and more responsible than some of the others, were allocated duties of mowing the grounds with hand lawnmowers. The field was on the site now occupied by St. John's school. Jacobs' brothei', John Jacobs, Sr., now of Cedar Rapids, and father of the w.k. Iowa golfer with the same hanger, was another member of the outfit. At 1G, John was invited for a tryput with Minneapolis, under Manager Joe Can- tilion, but his mother entered the picture and ordered her southpaw pitching son to stay in Bancroft. Other members of the crew, recalled Theodore Jacobs, were Russell Saunders, now of Britt; John C. Menke, Sr., whose family name has been carried on in an outstanding fashion for years by baseball playing sons in his family of 8 boys; Frank "Sandy" Welp, father of'Bill Welp, manager of the Lakes team this year; Dr. B. J. Lattimer, Springfield, Minn.; Steve Underkoffler, McGregor; the late Harry Griffin, Ed Countryman, "Heine" Menke, a brother to John Menke, and E. G. Sawyer, the latter a linotypist for the Globe-Gazette. Played All The team played everybody within range'and made the round of county fairs as well as taking on traveling clubs at home. Ceylon, Minn., was a celebrated spot they made several treks to for hotly contested games. "We had one good car, a new * AT GOOD SAMARITAN DEDICATION—Pictured above is part of the crowd which attended the dedicatory service for the Good Samaritan home in Mason City on the front steps of the building Sunday afternoon. In the background, facing the crowd, are, from the left, Mayor Howard E. Brace, Pastor E. M. Mueller, superintendent of the home; the Rev. E. A. Biedermann, St. James Lutheran church; the Rev. August Hoeger, Fargo, N. Dak., superintendent of the society, and the Rev. H.' Foege, Pocahontas, chairman of the board of the society, all of whom had a part in the program. Buick with chain drive," Jacobs said, "and there was always a scramble to ride in it. We also had tin old Velie, which had to stop for rest every few miles, and a Colby (made in Mason City). We shied away from the latter. You had to push it up most of the hills." Once it rained hard after a game at Ceylon and the drivers refused to drive home. Sleeping quarters were hard to find. Murray, Menke, and a couple of the others slept in the Methodist church, Jacobs recalled. Ceylon was "wet" as towns went in those days and Bancroft appeared there in a game at an air show celebration when spirits among some of the spectators were quite high. The Bancroft justice of the peace went along to aid his boys. His watch was stolen. The Bancroft butcher was arrested for washing h i s hands in Ceylon's public water fountain. "Main Use" His remark of, "This is all you use this stuff for up here, isn't it?" went unappreciated by the local populous. Murray was grabbed by some barroom celebrants and dressed up foij the animal circus. Hatten? Yes, it's just as well, Joe came to the hill after our visit with Mr. Jacobs. He's Bancroft's only gift to the majors— and was one to the Yankee's Saturday. Oh, yes, the original purpose of Mr. Jacobs' call was to secure a signature of the managing editor saying he knew T. Jacobs son, John Joseph Jacobs, 32, and that the latter was eligible for an Iowa veterans' bonus. John Joseph, now residing in Trenton, N. J., was on the cruiser Astoria when it went down but did not receive a scratch. Later when he came back to the states, he was hit by a taxi in Philadelphia and received a broken leg.
