His blue ribbon was "Shorty" a coonhound which surpassed some top retrievers and terriers to win. BEST IN THE KIDDY PARADE—Kenny Blake, 9, 109 Indiana S. E., was the best in the bbys section and Janet Messelheiser, 7, Meservey, in the girls at the field day "kiddie parade." Kenny had his Irish setter with red ribbons tied in the tail. Janet had an Old Mother Hubbard outfit to go with her German shorthair pointer. FILLING IN 60 YEARS DIFFERENCE—The youngest and the oldest trapshooter took time out to share experiences here. At left is Otto Stoltenberg, 73, 1616 Delaware S. E., who remembers that back in 1927 he was the state trapshoot champion (and he's still got the clipping to prove it). At right is Jim Ransom, a 13-year old of 921 Madison N. W. He stood in with veteran squads and earned good marks in each round. Fugitive Taunts Lowell, Mass., (U.R)—Police Inspector Frank J. O'Dea received a postcard from a Lowell youth wanted on an armed robbery warrant. The card was postmarked St. Augustine, Fla., and showed the fountain of youth. It read: "Wish you were here." IT STARTS THURSDAY Watch For Ad in Wednesday's Paper A STORE-WIDE REMOVAL SALE ^ New Location Gets Approval of Sportsmen Shoop's Dog Wins Retriever Contests By RICK MEREDITH The North Iowa Rod and Gun club found itself in a new field for the 6th annual field day Sunday and the field and the day's offerings got wide approval from the large crowd which milled in and out during the day's sporting events. A canme which added to his glory and that of his master was "Rusty," a German shorthair, owned by R. D. Shoop. "Rusty" won the open water trials and was adjudged the day's top retriever. Winner of the land trials was Bob Longsdorf's "Queen." Largest Crowd at Trapshoot The trapshooters claimed the event's largest crowd of spectators and participants alike. The 2 permanent traps were going from morning opening until sundown as shooters sought to gain hams, bacon and poultry. Some of them were veterans with years shooting behind them. Others were gaining their spurs for the first time. A Globe-Gazette photographer found a 13-year old and a 73- year old comparing notes after they had both fired good rounds. They were Jim Ransom,-13, 921 Madison N. W., and Otto Stoltenberg, 73, of 1616 Delaware S. E., a onetime Iowa state champion. The kiddie and pet parade took over the center arena in mid-afternoon with Janet Messelheiser of Meservey and Kenny Blake, 109 Indiana S. E., copping the laurels in their respective divisions. Russell O'Connell of Floyd brought his 34-year old coonhound along but hadn't intended to enter the canine. However, he ran off with the'blue ribbon oi the bench. Swanson, George Win Harry Swanson and Leo George proved to be the top casters in the § ounce and £ ounce classes respectively with 18 entries in the running. The show this year was held on the Avery farm on river road south of Taylor bridge, east of Mason City. The grounds are considerably larger than the previous location and represented a big improvement as the retriever trials were far enough from the trapshoot to not be bothered by the latter. Second in the open land trials was "Golden Penny Ann," shown by Walt Genzler and 3rd, "Dinah," owned by Paul Beckwith of Garner. Runnerup in the water trials was "Dinah," and "Duke," owned by Joe Eason of Hampton, 3rd. Won Novice Trials "Duke" was adding to his day's wealth as he won the novice land trials. In 2nd was Bud Blake's "Lady," and 3rd, "Rusty," owned by Bob Brown of Clear Lake. Topping the novice water division was Art Armsbury's "Mott," a Clear Laker. Shoop showed the 2nd place dog, "Winkle," and in 3rd was "Ranger," owned by L. C. Michael, Dickens. There was a total of 27 entries. Eight classes were held in the bench show with the following champions: Golden retriever, Bob Church Filled for Rumford's Final Sermon Mason City's greatest grafter is "the man who takes life with all of its beauty and opportunity, acknowledges God and receives Christ, thereby becoming an heir to eternal life, but refuses to give his life in service," declared the Rev. H. P. Rumford in his farewell sermon at the First Baptist church Sunday. Mr. Rumford defined a grafter as a parasite. Grafters, in our social life, he said include corrupt politicians using a sacred trust for gaining and giving favors, beggars preying on the public through pity and often becoming wealthy, and a vast army of lazy people retreating from work and living at public expense. Christian life is not a mockery, the pastor declared, but in the wisdom of God requires of man a life of service in return for the Life of God's Son for man's redemption. The greatest grafter's punishment, he warned, is to incur the breaking of the heart of God and frustrating instead of fulfilling the Divine plan for man. He appealed for a life of service as every man's reasonable debt for life and redemption. A number of visitors from other congregations attended the final service as an expression of friendship, gratitude and respect for the contribution Mr. Rumford made to the spiritual and civic life of Mason City during his 4£ years here. The church was filled to capacity. Parental dedication of children from 3 months to 1 year old included Mr. and Mrs. Irvin Boyd and daughter, Mary Lou; Mr. and Mrs. Hale Mason and daughter, Kathleen; Mr. and Mrs. Lowell Smith and daughter, Sally Ann; Mr. and Mrs. Griffen Venz and son, Michael, and Mr. and Mrs. Idris Thomas and son, Richard Stephen.
