The extreme youth of the United States as a nation becomes apparent when you look over the life span of Mahala Van Brunt Hargis, who celebrated her 104th biijthday anniversary here Feb. 1. After all, American history from before the Declaration of Independence through the atomic commission con troversy has come in the lives of two persons-Mrs. Hargts and John Quincy Adams, fifth president and son of the second president. Mrs. Hargis was born in Dark county, Ohio, in 1843. when young Abe Lincoln, 34, hadn't even been elected to the Illinois House of representatives. At 80. She was just a year and 23 days old when former President John Quincy Adams, still active in con gress, suffered a stroke and died at a youthful 80. He been born in 1767. After her mother died, Mahala and her father moved to a farm near Lafayette, Ind. and then, soon after, to Champaign county, Illinois. When Van Brunt moved again, to Iowa where he started clear ing the timber away to start a farm on Highway 60, at the west dge of Carlisle, Mahala stayed behind to live with the Casey family at Champaign. Love. About the time the civil war broke out, Mahala came to her father's place. And that's where romance first bloomed for her as Jasper N. Hargis, home on fur lough from service with Company 4th Iowa infantry, met her and fell in love. Jasper, at the end of his furlough without attempting to wire a plea for an extension went back to war. Mahala went to work In a woolen mill operated by a relative near Hartford. When Jasper returned, still youthful and vigorous for he had been just 15 when he ran away from a Fourth of July picnic to enlist at Des Moines, his first idea was marriage. Mahala then was working as a housekeeper for a Dr. Ward in Des Moines Farm. Well, Jasper and Mahala were married Oct. 1, 1865, less than six months after President Lin' coin had been assassinated. The civil war G.I. cleared a farm for his' bride Carlisle, where her. father still lived. It was about 55 years ago that Jasper Hargis was named steward of the Warren county farm, where he served eight years before he died. Then Mahala, with her family, moved into Indianola. Seven Children. Mrs. Hargis, now suffering a physical "letdown" after the determined struggle toward the 104th anniversary, had seven 104 i iv i i'4 "MAHALA HARGIS. 7nfo the Atomic HERB OWENS I iff 'M Another new product made of magnesium is a combination baby stroller and It weighs about 10 pounds less than standard articles of the same size and quality.

As a walker, the handle folds forward and the foot plate folds under the seat. Cleaner A new kind of vacuum cleaner is on the market now. It has two major claims to fame. One is the fact that it has no bag. The dust receptacle Is a rubber-sealed metal reservoir which detaches easily and can be emptied as conveniently as a dust pan. It can be kept clean with soap and water. The other special feature Is Its ability to pick up suds and water as weli as dry dirt and lint. If you want to scrub your rugs, up holstery or auto seats, you can ue this cleaner to suck the sur faces dry. The new vacuum is light in weight, compact and has a built in motor and fan.

She lives with the eldest, Clint Hargis, who has just come to his 78th anniversary. Another son, A. C. Hargis, 75, lives at Fresno, and "the baby," E. M. Hargis, 67, Is at Nampa, Idaho. Every day of his life, Clint Hargis eats with the same, shiny silver spoon which has the name "Wolden" engraved on it. It's in as good as new condition but it's a civil war souvenir. His father, young Jasper Hargis, brought it home after finding it in a conferedate cave. Mrs. Maxson's Rites Arranged Funeral services for Mrs. Maudie B.

With the railway resisting, there was no certainty that the amendment would be passed, he said. "Supposing we lost; who is going to make up the $32,500 7" he asked. Butld. Streets Commissioner Budd said he was inclined to support Vick- er's motion if the present committee were retained. Glfford said neither Patzig, a minority member, nor Burrlss, a majority member, was acceptable to the railway. The council evidently had de cided in private conferences Friday to accept the railway offer, but Budd's finally-accepted pro posal delayed the formal voting Monday.

Senator George Faul Des Moines), Ralph Benson Jefferson) and W. N.

To meet such objections Fred Maytag Newton) suggest ed that the bill be deferred until Mar. 25. He said by then school aid would have been determined Late. Kathlyn M. Kirketeg (Rep. Bedford) said this might be too late, and the bill, consequently. was deferred without date. George M. Faul Des Moines) said he planned to offer an alternative amendment which would permit adult education programs from other school funds than those re ceived from state aid. Meanwhile, the senate passed without objection and sent to the governor a house bill to legalize expenditures of the city of Des Moines and other cities In connection with veterans housing projects such as the one at Fort Des Moines. While the senate was debating" school matters, an administra tion bill to speed school reorgan izatlon in the state was being pre pared. Blue. The bill, it was learned, has been drawn in accord with Gov Robert D. Blue's recommenda Hons in his message, although he has not approved the final de tails of the bill as yet. The bid would provide that county commissions should draw up plans for reorganizing school districts which would be submitted to the voters. If the voters refused them twice, a stale commission would draft and submit a plan. If no reorganization plan was adopted after three years, the school districts would no longer be entitled to receive state aid. The bill is based on the theory that the state is entitled to assurance that schools receiving its aid are organized to use the money efficiently.

The survey was made principally in 1646. Study. Two years ago, the legislature increased the percentage from 1.5 to 2.75 per cent at the request of the city after the Protective league prodded the council. The engineering committee was named to make a study and decide what the percentage -should be for the guidance of the council In a request to the 1947 legislature. In contract to the majority committee recommendation of 3.63 per cent, one other member said the portion should be between 5 and 10 per cent and another that the percentage should not be changed. The moneys must be used for construction, repair and maintenance of streets traveled by the trolley and gasoline busses. Majority. Majority committee members were City Engineer John M. Tippee, chairman; Bert Myers, engineer of testa for the state highway commission, and John A. Burrlss, civil engineer. Monroe L. Patzig, consulting engineer, proposed the greater increase. W. L. Wilson, engineer for the street railway, contended the percentage should not be changed; that it already was excessive. Compromise. A re-enactment agreement by the street railway to accept the increase two years ago was made as a compromise with the understanding that a survey for determining a more nearly final figure would be made after nor mal conditions returned, Ben Gibson, attorney for the company, said at the council meeting. Technically, the Increase was "contrary to the express terms of your franchise," he as serted. The engineers' report submitted waa bated on facts "secured under abnormal conditions," the lawyer continued, and the railway could not expect receipts "anywhere near" tho of war and Immediate-pttwar years. The present percentage would yield $71,000 to $75,000 a year to the city, Gibson Baid. He estimated an increase to 3.63 would require the railway to pay an ad ditional $39,000 on the basis of 1946 revenue. Greater. Gifford said that, if anticipated declines in revenue occurred as the number of private automo biles increased, the flat payment of $32,500 would give the city a greater aggregate from the rail way than a 3.63 provision would yield. The $32,500 offer was made with the provision that the statutory percentage would remain "unchanged until normal conditions return," Glfford stipulated in the formal, written offer, which the council filed. The continued survey would be made in 1948, Finance Commis sioner Vicker said, no appropria tion for it being made for the fiscal year beginning Apr. That would be the year of a new council. Mayor John MacVicar observed. Stuil. C. B. Stull, president, and W. Harold Sears, vice-president of the lesgue, asked the council to request legislative enactment of an amendment increasing the percentage. "A bird In the hand, to me, in worth a down In the bush," Vicker said. The finance head said he believed conditions at the time of the survey were and that the city ildmiDmi mm) -flfrttm dim lntj device for moth-proofing, humidifying or spray painting.
