STEEL COMPANY IN NEW QUARTERS—North Iowa Steel Bldgs., Inc., moved this week to new quarters at 226 19th S. W., where both the office building and the fabricating shop and warehouse are located. The corporation has been operating in Mason City and 6 surrounding counties for about a year, producing buildings similar to those shown here. Globe-Gazette Photo Fabrication of this material will be carried on at the present site, according to Carl Freij, manager, and the firm also plans to enter the field of fabricating steel for housing and light industry. Steel framework for the new Carl Fox home at Clear Lake was fabricated by this corporation. Billion Is Spent for Farm Homes Unprecedented improvement in. housing and home equipment has been taking place on American farms in recent years, according to Melvin H. Baker, chairman of the construction industry information committee. More than a billion dollars were spent in farm construction during the last year, he added. "Preliminary results of a department of agriculture survey indicate a much higher level of farm construction than has been reflected in figures heretofore available," Baker said. "Building industry economists believe that farm building may actually be half again as much as the government estimates of $450 million for new construction and $667 million for maintenance and repair during the last year. Better Conditions "All the available evidence points to an unprecedented transformation in farm living conditions and in farm buildings. In 1940, the bureau of the census found that only 66.1 per cent of all farm dwellings were in good The K.C.

PHONE 3250 condition or needed only minor repairs.. Now, their latest survey shows that 81.1 per cent are in the good condition classification. "The number of farms with electric lighting has increased in the same period from 31.3 per cent to nearly 60 per cent. "There is much yet to be done to bring farm conveniences up to the level of city dwellings but great progress has been made. "Since 1940, the number of farm dwellings equipped with both private bath and private flush toilet has doubled, although nearly 4 out of 5 farm houses are still without both of these. However, nearly 13 per cent of the remainder do have a private toilet or running water. "It seems obvious, with the continuing high level of farm income and with materials and labor in better supply, that the next census survey will show a far greater rate of improvement than that already achieved. High Incomes "Farm income has readied all- time highs—over $25 billion in 1946 and over $30 billion in 1947 as against less than $D billion in 1939. Farm incomes were also high during the war and enabled many farmers to make extensive improvements. "Records of farm construction during the war are generally believed to be incomplete and do not reflect the actual amount of improvement that is known to have taken place. "Also, the dollar expenditures for farm building always appear low in comparison with construction in cities and to%vns because a great deal is done by the fanner and his hired help. So we actually have more physical volume than is reflected in dollar expenditures." Thomas Paine's pamphlet, "Common Sense," was credited in 1776 with crystallizing sentiment in favor of independence for Britain's colonies in North America.

PLUIVIBWG 3 New Homes Started Here Few Permits Issued During Past Week Hinz Gives mpressions of Tour East Fredrick Hinz, son of the Rev. and Mrs. C. A. Hinz, 146 12th N. •V., a member of the Concoi'dia erninary Lutheran Hour chorus vhich is heard each Sunday on he Mutual network, delivered an address entitled "My Impressions of the East" on the KGLO forum Wednesday, July 21. The Concordia chorus is comprised exclusively of theological students of the Concordia sem- nary, St. Louis, Mo. An extended concert tour of 5 weeks duration, hrough 20 eastern states climaxed ;he singing season this year. "As we progressed on our tour, we gradually came into the indus- ;rial east," said Mr. Hinz. ''Prior :o this, I had always thought I snew what the word industry meant, but when we toured the Buick plant in Flint, Mich., and the Goodyear Rubber company in Akron, Ohio, and saw the steel nills of v Youngstown and Pittsburgh, I immediately sensed that my conception of industry did not come up to its many implications. "When I saw the dirty, red smoke belching from the smoke stacks of steel mills and polluting the air of the city, my thoughts went home to Mason City housewives who so often are irked by our unpleasant cement dust. But let me tell you, cement dust is a mild unplcsantry compared to the grimy smoke of the steel mills. "Our tour also called Tor a concert appointment across the United States-Canadian boundary ut Fisherville, Ontario. Saw Historical Monuments "Going back to the states, we find that New England possesses a flavor all its own—Boston with its European-like narrow streets, New Hampshire with its old colonial homes and Vermont with its typical maple products stands stationed along the highway. Naturally, in New England we saw many historical monuments and sites, such as Bunker Hill, the old North Church, and Old Ironsides which now stands in the Boston naval yard. "Interesting as are all of these sites and scenes, there was one place which seemed to touch the heart of every member of the chorus; it was the oicl north bridge and battleground at Concord, Muss., posed there in a setting of silent beauty all its own—the old north river flowing gently beneath it, wending its way through the lush green countryside. And keeping constant vigil over this historic shrine is the statue of the Minuteman, representing America's gallant soldiers during the war of the revolution. Visits New York "Moving down through Massachusetts and Connecticut, we finally arrived in that big city of New York. "Leaving New York, we drove through the scenic Pocono mountains of eastern Pennsylvania, took in Independence and Convention halls, Betsy Ross' home, and the U. S. naval yards in Philadelphia, and finally arrived in the nation's capital, Washing- on, D. C. Here \vc enjoyed our irst day off after 35 concerts in 4 veeks. Washington, D. C., with its lately capitol building, its many vhite-marbled office buildings, ind its memorials, of Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln, can bu classified as perhaps America's most modern city. "After Washington, D. C., we enter dixieland and the deep south. Here and there we still see the remains of an old southern nansion.with white blooming colon fields on every hand.
