No. 25 in Ser/es— Fathers and Sons Working Together in Mason City IN THE OIL STATION BUSINESS- Globe-Gazette Photo -Another father and cessions will be in full operation according to Mrs. Shea. ."Complete picnic facilities arc available at the park," Mrs. Shea said, "and park visitors are cordially invited to use the grounds tables and other accommodations over the 4th of July weekend." The United States produces more than one-third of the tota value of the world's mineral products. son combination, actively engaged in the same form of business together in Mason City, is L. E. and Lein Snell, of the Snell super service station, pictured above examining a tire that is included in their stock" of merchandise. The elder Mr. Snell has been employed in many phases of the peiroleum industry, including sale and supervisory capacities for major oil concerns, and operation of a private service station. He was employed in Mason City's initial gasoline station and established the Snell station at its present site, 419 N. Federal, 15 years ago. The tremendous influx of vehicles requiring service has served to expand the concern from a 1 room, 2 pump station, to a 4 room, 4 pump super service. The Snell station owns and operates all local mail trucks, arid offers a trailer rental service in conjunction with the standard facilities of the firm. Lein Snell has been continuously associated with the station since 1936, with the exception of an overseas tour of duty with the famed marine corps 4th division. His knowledge of autos and trucks, gained through service station experience, was responsible for obtaining a truck dispatching post in the service. Upon release from military duties in 1945, he resumed partnership with his father. Both father and son are native residents of Mason City, and the former is a member of the Odd Fellows and Elks fraternal organizations, the Chamber of Commerce, and the U. C. T. Lein is affiliated with the American Legion. ,, Bayside Expecting Large July 4 Crowd Mrs. Jack Shea, who operates the Bayside Amusement park at Clear Lake, is making arrangements to accommodate large crowds of entertainment seekers at the park over the coming holiday weekend.

This was Wednesday's message from E. Stewart Ulrich, area rent director. "If you want to rent out one or 2furnished, non-housekeeping rooms in your private home, to one or 2 paying tenants, these rentals are not subject to control if you or others of your immediate family are occupants of the remainder of the home" he said. "Neither do the roomers come under the eviction provisions of the federal rent law—only under the local laws pertaining to eviction, as has always been the case with roomers." He explained that even if a husband and wife occupy each of 2 rooms rented in a private home on a non-housekeeping basis, there are considered to be just 2 paying tenants and the rooms are not under control. But the rent official had this caution for. those renting to more than 2 paying guests in a private home: "In this case the rentals are subject to control," he said, and you should consult the rent office." More than 2 roomers in a private home actually place it in the same classification as a rooming house, and rooming houses continue under rent control, he pointed out. The term rooming house includes boarding houses, dormitories, residence clubs and all other establishments of a similar nature, including tourist homes which were not serving transient guests exclusively on June 30, 1947. May Call After Cards Mailed About July 15 Rats No Disgrace But Keeping Them Is, Says Expert Exterminator Free rat extermination will be offered to every homeowner in Mason City after July 15, it was revealed Wednesday by Robert Soderberg, professional exterminator, in charge of the work being sponsored here by the Exchange club and the city council. Poisoned baiting already has been completed in and around the business places west of Federal avenue, Soderberg said, and the area east of Federal will be completed about July 15. After that date cards will be mailed to all homes asking co-operation in the campaign by reporting rat infestation. Telephone 3900, the city hall, to report any evidence of rats, the exterminator asked, but he warned that the calls should wait until a card is received, which will be after July 15. Continues Into 1949 The guaranteed extermination program will continue until June 1, 1949, he said, and calls should be made until that date if any rats are seen. The program is being financed by the city council and local businessmen who were solicited by the Exchange club. "We have talked to hundreds of people about the work," Soderberg said, "and we have heard nothing but good words for the program, the council, the Exchange club and the businessmen who contributed to the cause. "We believe that the citizens of Mason City will have a safer feeling, knowing that their health and that of their children is being protected by the safeguarding of their food from rat contamination in stores and warehouses. No Rats in Dump "It is no disgrace to have rats on your premises because no-one is safe from them. But it would be a disgrace to the community if they are not reported so that we can get rid of them." J. O. Quinby, caretaker of the city dump on Carolina N. E., gave the following report on the pois- Kenneth R.

Many people have stood here for long periods watching for signs of rats but not one has reported seeing any. "It is a pleasant feeling to know that there are none around and if this campaign is ( as successful in other areas as it' was here at the dump, it is a wonderful thing for everyone living in Mason City." Tests on heartwood from trees that have stood for as long as 15 years after being killed by fire or insects, have demonstrated that this wood was as sound and strong as wood from the live tree.
