Health Unit Needed Here, Rotary Told Would Cut Duplication, Elizabeth Wyss Says "If you just get a desk in the courthouse hall with a director and a secretary you'll have a start on the co-ordination of health services and health facilities," Miss Elizabeth Wyss, Fort Dodge, district state public health director, told Rotarians at a luncheon Monday noon at Hotel Hanford. "There should be a full- time local health unit in Mason City and Cerro Gordo county." "Today in Mason City, parents wishing help in getting a crippled child into a school could go to any number of different groups and request aid," she continued. 'There is the society for crippled children and adults, the department of public instruction with its special education program, the infantile paralysis fund, Sister Kenny fund, vocational rehabilitation program, or they could write to Iowa City for aid." Needs Clearing House "Now what Mason City needs Henkel Gets $525,505 Job at Huron, S. D. The Henkel Construction company has been awarded the general contract, including all mechanical work for the construction of a water softening plant for the city of Huron, S. Dak., in the amount of $525,505.85. The award was made shortly after bids were received and read at a public letting at Huron Monday afternoon. The project includes some 2,500 cubic yards of concrete in the substructure. The super-structure is of brick and steel construction 1 and 2 stories high, the outside dimensions of which are 114 feet by 182 feet. E. H.

Pictured above is a railroad car being loaded with dual-spin washers at the Automatic Washer company factory at Emery for shipment to Venezuela, South America. This is the 8th car loaded for foreign markets the past 2 months, going to South America, South Africa and Hawaii. Car Is Stolen in Alley Near Federal A blue 1941 Plymouth coach was stolen from the alley on 2nd N. E., just off Federal Monday afternoon, the highway patrol reported. The car bore Wapello county (90) license plates. Claude McDonough of the Production Credit association, 16 2nd N. E., said he had parked the car only a short time before it was miss- Ing. The auto belongs to his father •who lives at Kirkville, Iowa.

Phone S77 is a health unit which would not eliminate any organization but would serve as a clearing house for all services," Miss Wyss said. "This office would keep records of services offered and given, thus seeing no duplications of treatment occured." "We have been talking and planning a health program in Iowa for the last 25 years and now it is time to start doing something about it," she added. "We intend to start with a health council in the rural arenas." Only one state is lower than Iowa in the amount of money spent per capita on health aid, Miss Wyss said. "Iowa only spends 25 cents a person in- comparison to the national average of 61 cents for health protection," she continued. "In a survey listed in 'Local Health Units for the Nation,' a study compiled by Dr. Haven Emerson, former head of the public health school at Columbia university, recommends that at least one dollar per person be available." Served as Consultant Dr. Emerson is recognized as one of the foremost authorities in health matters in the United States, Miss Wyss reported. He was for many years commissioner of health for New York City and has been consultant for many states for the development of public health service. A number of communities that have* climbed from a place low on the list to a place of recognition in the health field started their improvement program following a survey by Dr. Emerson. "The basis of the idea is to prevent people from betoming ill rather than wait to treat them after they become sick," she said "Co-operation is the utmost importance in such a service." "Mason City already has many of the services stressed by a health unit but if a health unit office were set up in Mason City, a person need only contact a centra office and they would be sent to the right organization for aid.' Miss Wyss explained. "The organizations themeselves do no lose their name or service under this plan." Add Life to Years "We have added years to life through medical research," Miss Wyss concluded," "Now it is up to us to add life to years." Miss Wyss was presented by Emil Bohn who had charge of the program. President Eddie Jones presided at the meeting. Visiting Rotarians were Guy Palmer, Arroyo Grande, Cal.; James R. Gilruth, M. A. Arneson, T. L. Sears, the Rev. W. M. Hubbard, Marvin C. Smith, Archie Larson and Clarence Knutson, all of Clear Lake. pany expects to start construction operations about Oct. 10. Carl A.

If the fee is not paid ay May 1, the auditor is required to certify it to the county treasurer who puts it on the tax list with a dog penalty. Mason City has a separate ordinance and $1 city tax for male dogs. Since female dogs are not allowed to run free within the city, there is no tax on females in Mason City. The auditor's office pointed out Tuesday that a previous article in the Globe-Gazette 'stated incorrectly that there was no license on female dogs in the county.

Taxes Are Higher The t(Sxes on your property become delinquent on October 1st, as after that date there is added a penalty which makes them still higher. You would not worry about your taxes or insurance premiums, if you had a savings account here to which you added a certain amount every month to take care of them. You'll find it much easier to spare a little each month than "dig" up the total amount when due. Try it once and you will never be without a savings account.
