July 16, , 1948 11 VACATION CHORE—Miss Rose Napoletano is on a Z month vacation from her secretarial job in a California high school. She got home in time to help her father, Tony Napoletano, with the oats harvest, as the picture shows. Tony put in his name too late for a custom worker to combine the oats for him, he said, so he got out the old binder. He admitted he's "pretty tired of the old way" but there \vas no help for it this year, so he and Rose started cutting and shocking: on the Napoletano farm, 1A miles south of Rock Falls, on Wednesday. The older strains of oats are the ones being harvested this week. Harvesting: of Clinton oats in North Iowa probably will get under way next week, according to Marion E. Olson, Cerro Gordo county extension director. This week's harvest is mostly Cherokee oats with Globe-Gazette Photo a few Tama. Cherokee is a Bond cross like Clinton but a little earlier, not quite as high yielding and not as stiff sirawed, he said. No early reports on yields had been received Friday but Olson expected them to be very good. The weight may be somewhat less than last year, he admitted, although he expects it to run up close to 40 pounds a bushel. There will be more variation in yield this year, he expects, because of the dry periods. Oats on thin ground or that lacking in humus probably will not be nearly as good as that grown on land of good tilth and fertility, because it will have suffered more from drought. Many farmers were windrowing oats Friday to dry it thoroughly before combining from the windrow. tan, would move ahead without violence from this point on. To the question of whether she knew Mahatma Gandhi, she; stated that she not only knew him but that she was one of his most devoted followers. Noted Democrats Honored at Breakfast Political Stag to Be at AVSC Eve of Aug. 6 Assoc. to Preserve Clear Lake Is Host Further study of the possible establishment of a sanitary sewer district to include all of the shoreline of Clear Lake was decided upon. Thursday evening at a meeting of directors and committeemen of the Association for the Preservation of Clear Lake. The association also voted to continue its annual stag party honoring the members of the state conservation commission, traditionally held on the Friday evening immediately preceding Governor's Days at Clear Lake. The party wiii be held at the All Veterans Social Center on Clear Lake's north shore at 7 o'clock on the evening of Aug. G, according to the tentative arrangements. Edward R. Boyle, chairman of the public relations committee, was named chairman for the special event. To Entertain Commission It was also decided to hold a smaller dinner party for members of the commission and their wives some evening during the week preceding. The commission plans to hold a regular meeting at Clear Lake at that time, it was reported. The stag party has become the outstanding political gathering of the year for Iowa, it was pointed out, and has given legislators and state officers a favorable impression of Clear Lake. The problem of pollution in Clear Lake is being revived because of the serious danger it presents to the resort, Boyle explained to the association members. The proposal was submitted to the vot- Globe-Gazette Photo BALLOON BOXERS—Don "Butch" Hohenfield, 6th grade, and John Beery, 9th grade, both of Grant playground, presented a hilarious balloon boxing bout at the Mason City playgrounds stunt night at East park Thursday night.

EARL, HALL Staff Representative Philadelphia —This is the prize story of the convention, with an Iowa angle. Frank Nye and Harry Boyd, representing the Cedar Rapids Gazette, walked into an Alabama caucus Wednesday morning at the John Bartram hotel. At the time of their entry, a vote was being taken on the question of yicldinglo the neighboring state of Georgia so that a nominating speech might be made for Gov. Russell of that state. Bound up in the question was Alabama's implacable opposition to the nomination of Harry Truman or the adoption of a civil rights, plank in the party platform. Because the 2 Iowa newspapermen were standing up when the count was made, they were listed as voting in the affirmative. Their inclusion in the vote resulted in a tie vote. Whereupon the chairman of the delegation proceeded to announce in his richest Alabamese: "It's up to me to untie this tie." And he did. So far as is known, this is the first time 2 Iowa republicans ever got a vote in Alabama.

Then there's the Mid-Continent pair of pilots, one named Dewey and one named Warren, operating between the Twin Cities and St. Louis. Oscar Ewing Speech Reminiscent of FDR Oscar Ewing of New York, federal s e.c u r i t y administrator, proved himself a master of satire Tuesday afternoon when he attacked the inconsistencies in the republican record with respect to' social security, housing and other fields in which government touches the lives of people. From where I saw, catching the New Yorker in complete profile, his resemblance to the Franklin D. Roosevelt of 1936 or 1940 was nothing short, of unbelievable. His conversational style of speaking was reminiscent of FDR's too. Ewing had some little support from Iowa's delegates for the vice presidency—until they discovered that nobody seemed to know who Oscar Ewing was. Farley Wasn't Interested; He's Making $100,000 He's the same old Jim Farley— smiling, genial, dominating every situation in which he finds himself. Several lowans have greeted him in his hotel or on the convention floor. "How's my old friend, so and so?" he invariably asks. And the person about whom he makes inquiry is a postmaster or a former member of the state democratic central committee. To the question of whether he would let himself be put forward as a vice presidential candidate, his answer was an emphatic no. Mr. Farley is still with Coco- Cola, as director of foreign sales, at a salary reputed to be $100,000 a year. Famed Philadelphia Mummers Parade Seen Visitors at the convention had a view of the famed Philadelphia Mummers parade on the down- a local newspaper Stassen was being town streets before their evening session. Some 5,000 members of this old organization turned out as Indians, pirates, cowboys and in costumes which represented nothing but splendor of a type. There were those who thought that the big democratic donkey atop the marquee of the Bellevue- Stratford hotel seemed to nod his head a little more jauntily as the thousands in the streets lifted their voices in "Keep Your Sunny Side Up." In the afternoon before the parade it was feared that the spectacle would not be staged because of a controversy between union musical organizations and there was an incident along the line of march involving fist-swinging on the part of police guards and marchers in the parade. lowans Feel Stassen Qualified to Head U. Report in that Harold sought by the University of Pennsylvania for its president caused some little comment among lowans attending the convention. "At least it could be said that he has as much qualification for the job as Ike Eisenhower has to be president of Columbia," one Hawkeye observed. If selected, the Minnesotan would be succeeding Dr. George W. McClelland, who is retiring at 68 on account of ill health. Hindu Royalty Watches Convention If a prize were being given to a person attending this convention who is farthest from home, it would have to go to Her Highness Naharain of Nabha, Punjab, India, and her son, Prince C. B. Singh. Her Highness Tuesday afternoon was seated in the guest section immediately above the press gallery and your correspondent took time out for a little visit with her. "No t " she said, "we have nothing in India even remotely comparable with this." ' The Hindu woman expressed the belief that organization of the 2 new slates, Hindustan and Pakis- The convention-wide breakfast Wednesday morning honoring the memory of William Jennings Bryan, Woodrow Wilson, Josephus Daniels and Franklin D. Roosevelt was attended by a large number of delegates and alternates. There were those in the ranks, however, who objected to the whole idea on the basis that it "causes the democratic party of today to look back whereas we ought to be looking ahead," as the case was stated. It's a notable fact that the greatest audience response in convention hall has occurred in connection with the mention of the Roosevelt name. Philadelphia Not City but a "Village" When I was here for the republican national convention, I heard the "Village of Philadelphia" mentioned several times. As a matter of fact, the local spokesman in welcoming the convention stated that they represented the "village." And sure enough, they were right. Philadelphia is organized as a "village" rather than as a city. The giant-across-the-street banners read: "Welcome to Philadelphia." These Philadelphians just don't like to make changes hurriedly. Here's one manifestation of that fact. The alley-width main streets and buildings dating back almost to colonial days are other evidences. Wisconsin Delegate Former Socialist Mayor One of the delegates-at-large of Wisconsin democratic party is Daniel Hoan. Hoan was socialist mayor of Milwaukee in the days when your correspondent was covering the police beat for the Milwaukee Journal. He's still a socialist but he's found a welcome in the new Wisconsin democratic organization which in a studied way is attempting to dra\v into membership all persons of "liberal views." ers of the suggested district a year ago and defeated in a special election. Problem Called Serious Boyle credited Ira Jones with "single-handedly" defeating the election proposal but declared that he did so with the honest conviction that it was not for the best interests of the taxpayers of the city of Clear Lake. The problem is so serious, however, that if anything should go wrong it could ruin the resort in a very short time, Boyle insisted, and it is therefore essential that some solution be worked out. Jones, E. H. Wagner and L. A. Page also spoke on the matter. The directors voted to have President C. E. Barnes, Garner, appoint a working committee with inclusive representation from Clear Lake as well as other interests to make the study. The dinner meeting was held in the clubrooms of the Iowa Hardware Mutual Insurance companies. the Village of GUESTS AT MANLY Manly Recent guests in the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. N. Helland were Mrs. A.
