Houser, in- erviewers; Mrs. Max Major, senor clerk; Vivian Bergstrom, in- erviewer; Martin Hardin, mana- ;er, Charles City, and Frank F. •Malr., office supervisor, Mason ity. Since the peak load last February, these offices have made a ,otal of 633 veterans placements, of which 76 were disabled, clos- ng the books at the end of June with not one veteran applicant on file. In addition to these placements, the 2 offices had a number of veteran applicants who found jobs, themselves. Of the 9 counties, Cerro Gordo, Franklin, Winnebago,. Worth and Hancock are handled through Mason City and Floyd, Mitchell, Howard and Chickasaw through harles Citv. Under the GI Bill of Rights it is the responsibility of the employment service to disseminate job information, place veterans on suitable jobs and keep employers informed of available veteran applicants. In discharging this responsibility application files are maintained in the offices and veterans are notified when jobs are available. "Great credit is due the local offices for having established this new record," said Mr. Hart. "It i an outstanding achievement and reflects excellent co-operation between 2 local offices, the local employers and the community as a whole." Editor Gives Closeup of Conventions Lions Given Behind Scenes Account ,A behind-the-scenes stoi-y of the 2 national party conventions was given to the Mason City Lions club Wednesday noon by one of its members, Earl Hall, who sat in on both as a reporter. The split in the democratic party over the civil rights issue, it was pointed out, probably augurs the end of the merger under one banner of northern and southern democrats. Mr. Hall, however, expressed a doubt whether the division in the \ democratic ranks would have any appreciable effect on the November election. Arc Against Trumnn "The most any of the democrats in the deep south are ready to do at this time," he observed, "is to withhold their votes from Truman. They are not ready to move over into the republican party." There's the traditional hostility toward the word republican plus the fact that the GOP platform has as strong a civil rights plank as the one to which southerners object in their own party platform, the editor explained. The Barkley nomination, the special session and the address made by Herbert Hoover at the republican convention were other subjects touched on by Mr. Hall in his remarks, mostly prompted by questions from the audience. Report on Tournament Dick Romey and Lyle Dillon reported on plans for the inter- club golf tournament and dinner at liie Country club next Monclny afternoon and evening. This will take the place of next week's regular luncheon meeting. Dr. Vaughn Wicks, as club vice president, wielded the gavel in the absence of President George Mendon, now attending the international convention in New York. Bernard Main, program chairman, introduced the speaker. Guests included Ted and James Jakus of Flint, Mich., F. C. Fusse- mer of Kansas City, Mo., and William J. Trotter of Des Moines. Mr. Trotter is a former secretary of the local Lions club.
