MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 6 FIVE At Mason City THEATERS Bj K. J. P. L1LV 1'ONS MAKES I1IT. In her debut before American moving picture audiences, Lily Fons, coloratura soprano internationally famous, gives a vivacious performance as an actress, meanwhile demonstrating the undoubted quality o£ her voice. In several respects this picture, "I Dream Too Much," is comparable with Grace Moore's film debut, although Miss Pons' supporting cast would suffer by any such comparison. Eric Blore and his duchess, the latter being a trained seal whose antics on the vaudeville stage provide the means of a living for itself and the former, manage to elicit at least their quota of laughs.

"The Last Days of Pompeii," the second film, presents a great spectacle in the reproduction of the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius and the subsequent submergence of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii.

Increased traffic, including three night freights put on recently, caused railroad officials to approve the project. Maintenance costs have also risen through rail failures under heavy traffic.

RECORDS REVEAL IOWA GRADUALLY GETTING WARMER Forecaster Reed Scoffs at Idea Camels Will Ever Replace Horses. By G1COKGE MILLS Iowa Daily Press Bureau DES MOINES. Jan. 6.--Charles D. Reed, looking" out on a fast falling snowstorm from his weather bureau office window, scoffed at the idea that some day camels instead of horses will pull Iowa plows. The federal weather observer for the state did admit, however, that 58 years of records indicate Iowa climate is gradually growing warmer, the year-around average having risen from 46.4 degrees to 49.2 degrees since 1S7S. Smiling down the suggestion that people may come to Iowa in future ages to spend the winters. Reed warned that 2.8 degrees increase probably is too high a figure. Variations in methods of keeping records and undependability of much of the early equipment probably resulted in a theoretical gain in warmth not justified by the actual facts, he said, although there is no question but that the general trend definitely has been upward. Codl Years Ahead. Meanwhile, watch out Tor quite a clip toward the cooler side in the next few years, according to Reed. Aside from the general trend, there is a minor variation on its way right now that may result in an outstandingly cool summer in 1939, 1940 or 1941. In fact, it looks like much of the corn crop of these years will be frosted. Reed said. Accuracy of the weather chieftain's temperature predictions 19 illustrated by his forecast that Iowa's 1935 average summer reading would be 73 degrees. He missed by two- tenths of a degree. From the abnormally high mean of 76.8 degrees in 1931's torrid summer, the average is expected to skid all the way down to below 70 degrees in one of the cool summers ahead. Forecaster Usually Right. Weather men are wrong half the time, you say? On the contrary. Reed contends, the forecaster who has a batting average of 85 per cent or less is not doing very well and may not hold his job for long. These figures apply only to forecasting over periods of time, he said, recalling three weeks in New York City when the bureau was right only 60 per cent of the time, and six other consecutive weeks when the forecasts were correct substantially more than 90 per cent of the time. Reed, a native of Carroll county, was born near Coon Rapids in 1871 He received a master of science in agriculture in 1896, and 37 years ago in February he went into the weather bureau, being assigned to . the Vicksburg, Miss., station. After | a short stay at Columbus, Ohio, he ' went to Omaha as first assistant and five years later moved to Sioux City where he was in charge of the station. The following six years were spent in New York City as first assistant. He came to DCS Moines as first assistant in 1916 and took charge a little more than a year later. Forecast for Shippers. In addition to making the forecast for DCS Moines and vicinity each day, Reed also prepares a shippers forecast for the whole state. In .his prediction shippers are warned .0 protect perishable shipments against the lowest expected temperatures for the area into which the produce is going. One of Reed's particular perishable shipment duties makes him temporary custodian of bananas routed to Sioux City. The weather observer at Dubuque has jurisdiction over the bananas until they reach Waterloo, but from that point on Reed has the responsibility of advising the shipper of what's ahead in weather. Making a forecast sufficiently local is one of the difficulties besetting the forecaster. Reed said. Rainfall, dutifully predicted, might easily skip several localities and still be recorded in a sufficient number of places to justify the prediction, he said. !·«·« Drying Up. In addition to warming up gradually, the state of Iowa also seems to be becoming drier. Reed's records indicate. Since 1877 the average annual rainfall has dropped 2.09 inches, pn average of .030 inches less a year. The decline seems to have taken place chiefly in winter moisture, according to the bureau chief, no definite trend being apparent for the summer months. Are Iowa's winters really a lot warmer than they used to be in the pioneer days? Reed does not be- live there is any evidence to substantiate that idea. People in every era seem to think the weather is warming up, he said. Thomas Jefferson mentioned in his writings in the early 1700s that winters were not as cold as they used to be, the weather observer pointed out. "A boy encounters a snowfall that was hip deep," Reed declared. "Ami when he becomes a man, he still recalls it as being hip deep, even though the hips arc not as near the ground as they used to be." Testimony Is IJmited. Weather forecasters several years ago had to spend so much time testifying in court cases that the bureau now limits its testimony to certified records of conditions rather than personal appearance as a witness, Reed said. Hunters and game wardens often get into arguments as to whether or not shots were fired before sunrise. When they do, the bureau often is called upon to set the time o: sunrise (actually when half the sun can be seen over the horizon.) Reec also recalled a suicide case when the bureau was asked to determine whether or not the wind waa in the right direction for some papers to remain on a ledge. The dead per- lon had taken his own life, the insurance company declared, and the ·state contended the papers had dropped from a window on to a edge and the deceased had fallen 'Ut trying to reach said papers. The drought of 193-1 also took the jureau into court because of land- ord and tenant squabbles over pas- .urc conditions in southern Iowa. The bureau was called to show how extreme were conditions during that ·summer, the drought being classed from a legal standpoint as an act of God. Corn-Hog Series Planned. NEW HAMPTON, Jan. 6.--The 'hickasaw county corn-hog meet- ngs will be held in each township commencing Friday, Jan. 10 and ending Wednesday, Jan. 15. Officers will be elected at each meeting and applications will be signed for 1936 contracts. Steps Are Taken for Co-Op Group at Iowa Falls Session \ IOWA FALLS, Jan. 6.--The first formal step was taken Friday night to establish a Consumers Co-operative association in Iowa Falls at a meeting: at the General high school auditorium. The meeting was sponsored by the Farmers elevator, the Farmers' Co-operative exchange, the Iowa Falls Shipping association and the Iowa Falls creamery, and was attended by representatives of civic and social organizations. Aims of the proposed association are: Universality. democracy, equity, economy, publicity, unity and liberty. It is the purpose to establish a system of co-operation in buying for home consumption after the manner of co-operative produc- ikCord. Other speakers were A. A. I'aul.M-n. John Woddlc. Ralph Mason and Prof. Sidney Phillips. Gerald Ki'lKi-y presided at the meeting. Fiinio seldom lasts.
