BARBERS REQUEST CITY TO SET MINIMUM PRICES ·-- * _____--_ ----. · ---Successful Industrial Safety Campaign Ends in Mason City CONTINUANCE 0 F RIFLERANGEIS ASKED BY LEGION Grant M'Gowan Seeks Gravel Pit Tract in Exchange for River Property. Mason City barbers appeared masse at the July meeting of the city council Monciay morning petitioning for an ordinance to set minimum service prices. This and Grant McGowan's claim of damages to his property along Winnebago river north of the city disposal plant, a plea for retention of the rifle range and the ever present problem of beer permits engaged the attention of the five councilmen in a three hour session which adjourned at noon for continuation of the discussion in the afternoon. Talcing advantage of the provisions of house file 173, passed by the last legislature, which permitted city councils to pass minimum price ordinances on the application of 70 per cent or more of the barbers in the community, the barbers presented a model measure for adoption by the city fathers. Action Postponed. On the motion of J. T. Laird, and second by Leo Davey, action on the measure, was postponed to give council members an opportunity to study the measure, which provided the following minimum prices Haircut, 40 cents; shave, 25 cents; shampoo, 40 cents; facial massage, 40 cents; tonic, 25 cents; singe, 25 cents, and facial steam. 25 cents. A petition asking passage of the ordinance was signed by 31 barbers, John Senneff, Jr., spokesmen for the barbers, said he represented 33 of the 35 barber shops in operation in the community. Two or three barber shops in the community, resorting to price cutting, had succeeded in disrupting the entire price structure for the trade, with the result that barbers are not able to make a reasonable wage, he pointed out. The larger cities of the state have passed or were having similar measures in the process of passing, Mr. Senneff stated. Survey Conducted. Noble P. Janelle, field representative of the Association of Master Barbers of America, stated a survey had been conducted in the commun- ty showing the proposed prices to e fair. He did not believe he said :hat the measure would be held unconstitutional. W. S. Wilcox raised the question of how to justify a raise in prices for those unable to pay. Mr. Janelle argued they were asking 40 cents for haircuts from those who could afford it and that in event a man couldn't afford the price barbers would be ready to help him out. Fivs shops in the city were charging 50 cents for haircuts at present he said. Appear Before Council. Mr. McGowan's proposal of settling his claim against the city by an exchange of his Winnebago strip of land for a small area on which .he rifle range is being maintained, brought Lowell L. Forbes in charge of the Legion school of marksmanship and George R. Ludeman, Clausen-Worden Legion post commander before the council to argue for retention of the school. The exchange of the properties would deprive several hundred boys and girls from a place to get the safety education in firearms and to attend the marksmanship school, Mr. Forbes stated. Untold hours of work have gone into the preparation of the range, all of which would be .ost if an effort was made to change the site, Mr. Forbes stated. Mr. Ludeman argued the availability of the land to pavement and "ts fitness for range purposes. To Appraise Damages. On the motion of David Olson, Mayor J. J. Burns was authorized .0 appoint a committee of three to appraise the damages to Mr. McGowan's Winnebago river property, "rom which trees were cut at the ime a dike was erected to protect the city disposal plant. City Manager E. H. Crofoot stated he and other city employes were under the impression this land, com- 'rising 2.09 acres along the south jank of the Winnebago, was city iroperty. B beer permits were granted to he Hotel Hanford, Park Inn hotel, Rose Joyce, 25 West State street nd the Blue Moon and Outskirts barbecue in the Lehigh row district. The petition of Lou E. Facklis for he High Life Pool hall was again iresented, but it was not acted up- n. Both Sam Karamitros. the opera- or of the Blue Moon, and his brother, Pete Karamitros. appeared be- ore the council to plead for con- inuance of their beer permit as it vas known the council was hesitat- ng about issuing the Lehigh row 'censes for another year. On the motion of Mr. Wilcox nermits were granted to the two tehigh establishments on agree- jents that they be closed at i a. m. veek days and 12 o'clock midnight laturday and Sunday. The.y Don't Expire. City Solicitor Harvey J. Bryant tated that after a close reading of he law he came to the conclusion C ermits do not expire July 1 as do he B permits. He also expressed his oubts as to whether the council can rbitrarily deny all C permits. Such ermits should be passed on indi- idually, he maintained. "The law gives us the right to bate nuisances, doesn't it?" asked layor Burns. It was decided to postpone any Only Single Mishap for Month Here Decker's Will Receive Flag From Meat Institute for No Accidents. The June no accident campaign was concluded Sunday with only ore accident to mar the otherwise perfect record. Officials of the 27 industries participating expressed much satisfaction with the success of the campaign and were well pleased with the co-operation of the employes in the safety work. Industries and groups which participated in the campaign and whose flags were still flying at the close of the drive have been asked to take down their flags. Industries had the right to keep their flags aloft during June until a lost time accident occurred in their plant. A lost time accident is one keeping an employe from returning to his regular work within a period of 21 hours. The campaign was sponsored here by the Mason City safety council. Officials of the council were highly gratified with the results, they stated. By having a perfect record, the Jacob E. Decker and Sons company plant will receive a flag awarded by the American Institute of Meat Packers and will have the right to fly this flag until a lost time accident occurs in that industry, according to E. J. McCann, director of safety. Employes at the Decker plant, who joined enthusiastically in the effort to avoid accidents, were highly elated with this attainment.

Mason City's freight rates have again been jeopardized by an action before the interstate commerce commission presented by the Duluth Chamber of Commerce, concurred in by the Twin Cities, B. J. Drummond. traffic commissioner | of the Chamber of Commerce, announced. "A disruption of the relationship in rates to Mason City with those to Twin Cities would follow if the proposal of the Duluth Chamber of Commerce should be approved," Mr. Drummond stated. "Such a disruption would be keenly felt by the dairy interests generally in Northern Iowa and more specifically at Mason Cjty in that the Duluth proposal would result in the establishment of more favorable rail-lake-rail rates from Minnesota points via Duluth and refrigerated boats to Buffalo and other eastern markets. Would Disrupt Rates. "The differentials under the all- rail rates proposed would ultimately disrupt the all-rail rate adjustment and make it necessary for jowa dairies to absorb greater amounts in order to market their products in the east in competition with Minnesota dairies." Westbound merchandise rates would also be affected in a similar manner to those eastbound on dairy products, according to Mr. Drummond. Because of the large differentials proposed the Twin Cities would gain an advantage on shipments from the east via Buffalo and the lakes to Duluth that would enable their distributors to invade Mason City's trade area. This in turn would be very likely to cause the all-rail routes to reduce their rates to Twin Cities and thus wipe out the present adjustment which gives Mason City a fair differential less than the Twin Cities rates. Back From Washington. Mr. Drummond has just returned from Washington, D. C., where he presented oral argument to the interstate commerce commission opposing the Duluth and Twin Cities proposals and showing the disastrous effect they would have on Mason City's industrial development if the railroads were permitted to put in force the rate's suggested by Duluth and Twin Cities. The commission has designated Aug. 20 as the effective date of the revised rates but whether or not they will become effective or altered on the argument presented by Duluth and Twin Cities will not be known until the commission reaches a conclusion based on the Celebrate the 4th of July With a Hew Genuine 1935 FHI6IDAIRE Built by General Motors NO DOWN PAYMENT THREE YEARS TO PAY F.

Stewart Returns From St. Cloyd Band Work Carleton L. Stewart, director of the high school band, returned Saturday from St. Cloud, Minn., where he served as special guest instructor for three days at St. Cloud Teachers'' college. While in St. Cloud he also heard the band composed of convicts at the reformatory. Difficult numbers were played execeptionally well by this band, few of whom had musical training previous to serving terms. Mr. Stewart learned that the band rehearses twice daily and each member practices five hours a day. Instruments owned by the band representing an investment of thousands of dollars, would compare favorably with those of many professional organizations. "We have exceptionally good equipment at Mason City, "Mr. Stewart stated. "But the equipment at the reformatory was far better. At the teachers' college the only furnished equipment consisted o£ a bass drum and bass viol."

There is great comfort in the realization that departed loved ones rest securely in time-defying Crown concrete vaults whose strong walls protect them. Concrete--like memories--grows stronger with age. Properly constructed according to rigid specifications, concrete vaults will give buriel protection for centuries. The reasonable cost of Crown concrete vaults makes them available for simple as well as elaborate burials. Insist on Crown concrete burial vaults for durability. The Castle of St. Angela in Rome was built in the year 35 + A. D. as a tomb for Emperor Hadrian. Its massive foundation and walls were constructed of Pozzuolana concrete, a natural cement. Eighteen centuries of war and pillage have stripped St. Angela of its marble casings and fine statuary. Remaining are the concrete walls and foundations, all in excellent condition. It is still an imposing building, a landmark for visitors in Rome. Modern, scientifically made concrete is infinitely more strong and durable than Roman concrete which has endured 2,000 years. Crown Concrete Burial vaults are set at the grave by the manufacturer. This service is performed quietly and respectfully.
