Miss Lydia Barrette, Mason City librarian recently stated in her weekly column in the Globe-Gazette: "When 'Lo and Behold' and 'Bold Blades of Donegal,' by Seu- mus MacManug came in Thursday morning, the staff at the library welcomed them with open arms for there have .been many, maijy calls for MacManus titles both in the Children's room and at the adult desk. Eleven new volumes of his works are on the way to build up the folk lore section at the library."

We quote it ia full. To our notion that advertisement by C. Whit Bloimt states the economic and governmental aspects of the case against A&P with a clarity and forcefulness that most of the editorial comment has lacked. Also it strikes us as a fine example of sports- m-mship in business. Incidentally, it is about as effective an advertisement as could have been written for Mr. Bloimt's "Groceteria". Makes you sort of wish you were in Waynesboro to trade with him, doesn't it? •X- •X- * The A i "°'« tte tosfs dowj) ., hoW ** eosfs d own . "7"* ° Ur ' ey e/.
