MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JULY 1 1935 ELEVEN m m 6'iil MONTH OF JUNE MOISTURE HIGH, FIGURES REVEAL Twice as Moist as Average June, Six Times Amount of 1934 Period. The month just ended was almost twice as moist as the average June and six times as moist as the June of 1934, The average temperature of the month just ended was 63.9 degrees, more than 3 degrees below the normal June average and more than 10 degrees below the June average last year. These facts are revealed by the Globe-Gazette weather figures. Precipitation thus far in 1935 has reached the total of 17.5 inches, compared with 14.77 inches, which is the 50 year average for the first six months of the year. The month to month moisture fig' urges follow: 1935 Normal January 1.58 .92 February , 75 1.01 March 1.17 1.44 April 2.76 2.72 May 3.58 4.16 June 7.68 4.62 TOTALS 17.52 14.77 Checking back further, it is disclosed that out of the past 12 months, supposedly a year of drought, s.even months have brought more than normal moisture. It is still a mark of 1935's weather offering that up to the first of July there had not been a temperature as high as 90 degrees. June's highest was 88, recorded on the afternoon of June 13. Only 13 of June's 30 days were listed as clear and the wind was out of the north 14 days, two facts closely related to the month's abnormal coolness. On 14 days rain in measurable amount was recorded, with tracesshown on three other days. The day to day figures follow: Max. Min. Free. June 1 68 57 Tr. June 2 69 56 .71 June 3 SO 50 Tr.

J. Kiefer, agency supervisor for the Cedar Rapids Life Insurance company. The speaker stressed the necessity of understanding the buyer's requirements and ability to pay before assuming him to be a prospect, and illustrated haphazard selling methods. Other business included arrangements for a picnic to be held at a later date, reports of committees and announcement of preparations 'being made for the national convention which will convene in Des Moines Sept. 16. Delegates elected for the convention include R. L. Bailey, W. M. Huffman, L. H. Gilchrist, Walter J. Walker of Mason City and A. B. Colburn of Waverly. Alternates include Charles Bailey of Osage, J. E. Brown and F. W. Vorheis of Mason City, D. S. Kupker ot Nora Springs and B. L. Prouty of Garner. Membership cards in the national association, necessary for attendance at the national convention, were distributed. The meeting, presided over by President Huffman, was well attended. FUNNY MAN IS EVEN FUNNIER Ventriloquist Feature With Dancer, Golf, Stilt Acts at Cecil. The traditional funny man of vaudeville, the ventriloquist, was even funnier last week-end at the Cecil theater, as the sixth in a series of bigr-time stage shows topped the bill. Ventriloquist Conlon. who talked his dummy-stooge through a fast act, returned to occupy the next- to closing spot on the bill, with Golf Expert Masters of the Masters and Grayce act "sitting in" as the dummy. The closing spot was held by the fast dancing family that made up Louie's Chinese Revue, with Gam Chee and Nai Git, the Chinese Cherry Blossoms. Tap and acrobatic dancing, with songs in both American and Chinese styles were the body of the smooth act. Masters and Grayce were comics in. their own right, their golf lesson being the high spot of the act, with Masters providing the kick as he sailed short iron shots out into the audience. A surprise bill was the Midnight Serenade, with Bert Nagle and three girls. Miss Hilja, featured dancer, brought continued applause with seemingly impossible dance movements. Weston and Lake opened the bill with a speedy musical and stilt act, Weston dancing through a hard routine on his long wooden "legs." MUSICIANS WIN MUCH APPLAUSE Child Performers Play Many Violin, Piano Selections. Music by Americo and Victor Cimmino amazed and delighted the audience which assembled in the First Methodist church Sunday evening. Victor, 9 years old, is a violinist, and Americo, 6 years old, is a pianist and both are here to participate in the Singing Village which will be conducted July 5 to 14 at Clear Lake. The boys who are pupils of Signor Fiorillo, perform with musicianship which would be commendable for older persons. They are American born of Italian parents, the two eldest of a family of seven. The Nebraska string quartet played a group of numbers which was equally well received by the audience. Signor Mario Cappelli who is directing the Singing Village gave a group of vocal numbers. Mr. Cappelli is an American-Italian tenor whose work is familiar to Mason Cityans. At a. special request from a member of the audience, Mr. Cappelli sang "The Isle of Capri," giving it first in Italian and then in English. Bridge Party to Be at Mason City Club Women of the Mason City Country club will assemble at the clubhouse Tuesday afternoon for their fortnightly contract party. A buffet luncheon will -precede the play. Hostesses for the afternoon will be Mrs. R. E. Finlayson, Mrs. John Gallagher and Mrs. Fulton Potter. MARY E.

McL What with all the theaters showing mystery movies and the summer being the time to read thrillers anyway, I bad intended to go on murder story jag this week, but I could find only four comparatively new murder books to read--not that there is any special merit in a new book over an old one, except in the case of mystery stories. MURDER IN IOWA IS THEME OF BOOK "Crime in Corn-Weather" is of especial interest to lowans because the background of the story is a small town in southern Iowa named Kcedora by the author. Mary Alwater. When the town banker, Will Breen, doesn't come home for supper on time only two persons think it is strange, his mother and a curious neighbor woman, but when he doesn't come home at all, the whole town think it's queer and excitement ensues. The body of Breen was never found, although the author tells her readers where it is. The murderer was never discovered, although the reader knows who did the crime. Everyone benefited enormously and surprisingly from the affair except the murdered and the murderer. ONLY ONE GOOD BLOODY MURDER "Death in a Little Town" by R. C. Woodthorpe is a new thriller and a good one--not in the horrendous manner of many of the late mystery stories, but with one good bloody murder to its credit. The honors do not fall to the police in this book, nor to an amateur sleuth, but more or less to the murderer. Plenty of persons in Chcsworth, quiet little English town, had reasons for disliking Douglas Bonar, but no one, really, for murdering him. The story moves along quickly enough, but without hysteria. There are many interesting persons in* volved and my favorite was Ramsay McDonald, the parrot of Miss Perks. SOLVING CRIME CENTURIES OLD Another mystery story with only i centurlcs-old-murder to make it ;orcy is "The Intrusive Tourist." -lowever there is a ghost roaming hrough the pages and there is a Tudor castle with sliding panels and ecrel passage ways and trap doors vhich should make it sufficiently grim. The story is of an American, Gerard Anthered, who comes to Eng- and to clear the name of his great grandfather who accused of murder, vas sent to Botany Bay, the Australian colony. Evidence about the murder has been concealed in the castle, Malyon, and it is Anthered's ntention to find it. It is the inten- .cntion of Miss Vanora May of Mai- yon that he does not find it and much excitement ensues. LOST OR STOLEN \ SINGLE HOUR "Jimmy Dale and the Missing Hour" by Frank L. Packard is a more ordinary thriller. It has the k amateur detective who goes ·sleuthing around in disguise and calls up his faithful butler every now and then to report on his pro- ·ess and his safety. As Larry the Bat, Jimmy Dale owed his life to one Sonny Garlz. Before we go any farther. let me tell rou that Jimmy Dale was not only Larry the Bat, but Smarlinghue and also the dreaded Grey Seal. When 'artz was killed Dale felt he must do something about it and when his best friend, Carruthers, publisher of newspaper, disappears, he whips out his disguises and goes to work.

Decker's Sliced to Order PRICES EFFECTIVE TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY Lady" by Nancy Hoyt is a biology of the late Elinor Wylie by her younger sister. It is an excellent and lively portrait and will be read by all Wylie-enthusiasts. Reared in Philadelphia, Elinor became a successful debutante in spite of having been "lost with Shelly and Shakespeare for so many years." She married Philip Hichborn and when she was 24 years old, eloped with Horace Wylie, much to the amazement of all concerned. They went to England and lived there and it was during this time that her first book, "Incidental Numbers," was privately printed. Poems from this collection are reprinted at the back of Mrs. Hoyt's biography of her sister. RETURN TO U. S. DURING WORLD WAR, At the outbreak of the war, Horace and Elinor returned to America and took up residence in Washington. She began to get some fame as a poet and her first volume of verse, "Nets to Catch the Wind" was published. In 1923 she divorced Horace and married William Rose Benet. They made their home in New York much of the time and during these years that "Jennifer Lorn" and "The Venetian Glass Nelphew" were written. Shelly had always been a love of Mrs. Wylie and her next book, "The Orphan Angel," concerned him and met with popular approval. "Mr. Hodge and Mr. Hazard" was her fourth prose publication. She enjoyed writing poetry, but prose was real toil for her. In 1928 while in England, she suffered a bad fall as the result of a slight stroke. In October of that year another stroke paralyzed several inches of her SINGING VILLAGE CONCERTS At Methodist Camp Grounds, South Shore, Clear Lake FRIDAY.
