New 5-Cent Airmail Stamp Will Honor City of New York Mayor Howard E. Bruce. "We are seeking to accomplish the desired results by co-operation of the parties involved instead of by drawing up an ordinance," said the mayor, who has held several conferences with truck operators on the matter. To explain the program he has in mind Mayor Bruce issued the following statement: LET'S STOP THE BLOCKADE "Congestion in our downtown streets at certain hours of the day becomes almost unmanageable. Trucks making deliveries add considerably to the congestion. "The traffic division of the police department has asked that truck deliveries be confined to the morning hours. "This ruling was directed after several meetings with city officials and truck operators. We are asking for the co-operation of the three (3) groups principally involved, 'namely: Truck operators—down- toxvn business establishments depending on truck deliveries, and the public. "To you—O PERATORS OF TRUCKS—we ask that you arrange your schedules for deliveries in the forenoons only. This may require some changes in your schedule. Don't double park unless it is absolutely necessary. (You are permitted to park in a metered zone for delivery or pickup without depositing a coin in the meter). If double parking is necessary, try to park as close to the cars which are parked along the curb as is possible, and not in the middle of the street. Avoid using semi-trailers or large trucks for minor deliveries or pick ups. "To you—MR. BUSINESSMAN —you probably think you are not involved in this cycle of co-operation, but you are, and can help very materially. Plan your operations so that deliveries and pickups can be made in the forenoons. Don't ask for more than one delivery a day. You can help, too, by arranging to have someone sign the delivery slip or pay the truck driver so that he can be on his way and relieve the congestion in front of your store. "To you—MR. JOHN Q. PUBLIC—perhaps you have been irked by the action of some truck driver, but remember, trucks are absolutely necessary to all of us. They furnish us with foods and other necessary materials, and many thousands of people derive their livelihood through truck operation. The next time you encounter a truck blocking the traffic or pinning you at the curb, count to 10 before you lose your temper. It will work out and you should be on your way in a short while. Your tolerance for these necessary conditions will help to speed up the traffic." ducing ducks now. This report was given to Wilson Abel, of Mason City, state DU chairman, in a recent visit here with Robert A. Leeson, newly chosen national president of Ducks Unlimited; Morton W. Smith, chairman of the board, and Arthur Bartley, U. S. manager, of Ducks Unlimited, as the 3 were enroute from Canada to New York. Once Marsh Originally a large marsh area, the lake is now in fine shape, Abel said. It is located near Kin- stino between Regina and Calgary, Alberta. During World war I much of the land in this territory was drained to be converted into a wheat-producing area. Some of it has since been, reclaimed. "It is the object of Ducks Unlimited to restore good breeding grounds so that they will again produce ducks," Abel pointed out. "DU takes no part in trying to influence bag limit or "seasons" -but is strictly interested in the production of ducks." Mason City Support Mason City's Ducks Unlimited organization, headed by Dewey Smith, has contributed more than $1,500 since the Lake Iowa project was started 2 years ago, Abel noted. Other Iowa groups have combined to bring the total to more than $20,000. The land is 15 Dr: Dolmage Associated With Drs.

Started 2 years ago the lake is full of water and producing ducks now. For a time around World war I the land was completely drained for farming. The new U. S. 5-cent airmail commemorative stamp honoring the golden anniversary of New York City's consolidation will be placed on first day sale July 31 in New York, according to information received here by Postmaster Fred Cahalan. The central motif, as shown in the accompanying picture, depicts a map of the 5 New "York City boroughs on a dark background, around which is a ring bearing the inscription, "1898 Golden Anniversary." Circling the ring are 7 modern airplanes. The color will be red. Delicious Drinks AT GROCERS County Supervisors Attend Showing of New Road Equipment Henry Hitzhusen, Ray Robbins and E. R. "Dick" Steinberg, Cerro Gordo county supervisors, are in Chicago attending a road show being sponsored by a number of road equipment manufacturers. They left Tuesday morning from Mason City on a bus furnished by the Gibbs-C o o k Tractor and Equipment company. Supervisors from a number of North Iowa counties made up the party. ment which co-operates with the Canadian Ducks Unlimited, Inc., in the program. A number of other states have had lakes named for them and have been supporting the reclamation work. Construction on Lake Iowa has been entirely completed, Abel has been informed, and this spring, for the first time in many years, excess water has had to be drained off so as not to flood adjacent farm land. Survey Optimistic In the latest survey of wildfowl conditions in the 3 prairie provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, there is every evidence of good tidings to hunters in the area and also to hunters along the central flyway for clucks. It is apparent that the duck population slightly increased in Manitoba and Saskatchewan while in Alberta, there is an even larger increase than was evidenced last year. In Alberta there is just as much water, if not more, on the prairie and the population of pintails has increased as much as 20 per cent over last year. This observation has been made by DU key men who have an average of 28 years experience in the territory. No Cuts Foreseen There is no thought in any of the 3 prairie provinces for a drastic cut, either in bag limits or season's limit. One of trie strongest reasons advanced for the generally favorable outlook is the untiring efforts of sportsmen in the United States to bring about better wintering grounds for the ducks than has been in existence heretofore. Dr. G. H. Dolmage, formerly of Buffalo Center, has entered practice in Mason City in association with Dr. H. D. Fallows and Dr. C. E. Chenoweth, eye, ear, nose and throat specialists, in their offices in the Foresters building. Dr. Dolmage was educated in the Buffalo Center consolidated school system, the Mason City junior college, the University of Notre Dame, where he received his bachelor of arts degree, and the University of Iowa, where he obtained a master of arts degree and a doctor of medicine degree in 1937. He completed his internship at Denver general hospital, and practiced in Buffalo Center for, 4i years prior to entrance into the army as medical officer for a 2J year tour of service. He specialized in eye work at the University of Minnesota hospitals from July 1, 1945 to June 30, 1948, and his activities in association with Dr. Fallows and Dr. Chenoweth will be confined to the eye. Dr. Dolmage is married and has 3 children, 8, 5 and 2 years of age. His residence is at 308 15th S. E.

Mason City is mentioned among the great manufacturing cities of the state as "clayware town." The magazine devotes 26 pages, including 3 articles and 106 photographs, to the story of Iowa, the State Fair, the life in the Corn Belt. Donald Wayne, author of the story on Iowa, points out that the state's "good, black earth" provides about a 10th of all the food America produces. He adds: "What happens in Iowa, then, hits a man in his appetite. It affects a great many people in the world." Noting that Iowa has the high est percentage of literacy in the nation, the magazine looks ovei the state's education system froVn the modern one-room schoolhouse to the Iowa State college at Ames and the University of Iowa a Iowa City. Students at the college comi from all over the world, "to tm ultimate benefit of agricultun and economy in their respective countries," the magazine con tin ues; while at the university, radio journalism and the theater ar high among the cultural arts, am "Iowa graduates go places in thes fields." The university hospita" described as a "hugh sprawling af air," is rated as a "first-rate med- cal school." In the field of the arts, the magazine calls attention to the fact hat Dvorak wrote the first part his New World Symphony while n Iowa; that Grant Wood's severe tyle launched a new school of American primitive art; that Ruth uckow's sketches of Iowa life are regarded as midland classics; and that Tennessee Williams, au- hor of the current Broadway hit, 'A Streetcar Named Desire," is product of Iowa university's dramatic workshop.
