SHAFFER STATES PLAN WOULD CUT FEDERAL TRAFFIC Wore suggestions Wanted for Long Time Scheme of Improvement The development of a through treet from Nineteenth street southwest north to the American Crystal Sugar company plant is the uggestion of County Attorney Frederick B. Shaffer for the improvement of Mason City. This is suggestion No. IS for a community-wide effort to make Mason City a better city. Mr. Shaffer's contention is that the building of such a thoroughfare through the west part of the citv will serve to relieve traffic on Fed"- eral avenue. Street Needed. The part of this steet most needed is probably the mile from Fourth street southwest to Nineteenth street southwest, Mr. Shaffer suggests, inasmuch as there is no way to cross this area from Federal avenue to the corner by The Farm. Had this street been in operation during the period when South Federal avenue was being repaved, it would have facilitated the task of arranging a detour, the county attorney pointed out. Mr. Shaffer is of the opinion that No. 65 could be turned westward in a wide curve that would add to ease of taking the new thoroughfare. As far as connecting it with the highway north of the city some details would have to be worked out, he Move Started to Bring Dr. F. E. Townsend Here Large Delegation at Humboldt to Hear, Him Speak.

This is one of IS suggestions that have been thrown into the hopper for the improvement of Mason City. They have been proposed for consideration in a long time plan of developing the community.

The Mason City delegation was made up of 40 persons. Large delegations also went from Clear Lake and Charles City, local members stated. The move to bring Dr. Townsend to Mason City originated following a conference with C. O. Crowningshield, state manager of the Townsend organization who stated Dr. Townsend had some open dates in August. Dr. Townsend in his Humboldt address scoffed at President Roosevelt's social security bill as a "silly gesture." "Foolish Gesture." "The bill says," Townsend dev Blared, "that if and when your state government gives you ?15 a month, the national government will give you another $15. The members of congress knew perfectly well state governments are not In a position to give a pension of ?15~ a month. I say it is an idle and loolish gesture." Dr. Townsend also urged that schools be established for politician so they could learn political truth and urged a taxation system found ed on "the ibility to spend." He staunchly defended his pension plan, declaring it is sweeping the nation "like a veritable whirlwind.' DR. F. E. TOWNSEND. AT THE HOSPITALS Mrs. S. V.
