Clark overruled a motion for a directed verdict sought by the defendant at the conclusion of the plaintiff's testimony Wednesday in the case of W. H. Kogle vs. Henry Derrer. The defendant witnesses then took the stand. The trial moved so rapidly, attorneys expressed the hope the case would reach the jury by evening. In this case Mr. Kogle alleges he was injured by an automobile driven by Atr. Derrer while crossing Second street on South Federal avenue. Differed With Plainf.'ff. Most of Mr. Kogls's witnesses dif- Eered with the plaintiff as to the direction he was headed at the time he was struck by the car.

Derrer said, he made a turn Inside the stop and go sign, going from South Federal to Second street. The defendant put on a half dozen witnesses to make a showing that Mr. Kogle had continued his usual activities despite his claim of permanent injuries ' resulting- from the Lillian Kennedy said he, did some work on her property and Miade no allowance for alleged inability to do a full nian's worlc. L. E. Whlpple, H. E. Ford, B. W. Wilkinson and others 'said they, had heard him complain about a pain in his shoulder many times before the accident/He had alleged in his testimony that the ligaments in liis shoulder were torn by the collision. L. L. Raymond testified he saw Kogle at Legion dances apparently as able to dance as before. Injuries Not Permanent. Dr. George M. Crabb, plaintiff witness, testified he did not believe Mr. Kogle was permanently' injured. The motion for directed verdict, made and argued by L. R. Boomhower, defendant's attorney, was based on the allegation that the plaintiff's evidence showed Mr. Kogle was guilty of contributory negligence, while not making a showing that Mr. Derrer had been negligent. Judge Clark, however, held that the evidence was one for the jury to decide. Many drivers have' opinions that pedestrians are duty bound to be out of the way and that when a stop and go sign says 'go' they can drive ahead without regard for pedestrians," said the judge while commenting on the motion. "Under the law the driver must drive at a prudent, reasonable rate of speed, having due regard for .traffic and road conditions. This law has not been tested by the supreme court. Pedestrians must look out, but need not exercise such extraordinary care as the driver of an automobile. Both have a right in the street, however." 6.4 Degrees Below the Melting Point. If anybody doubts that the January Just past was an unusually balmy month, let him compare it witli the January of 1930. The average temperature of that month was 7.15 degrees. This year it was 25.6 degrees -- some 17 degrees higher. Mason City's normal January is about 14 or 15 degrees. In January last year there was a minimum temperature of 31'degrees below zero one night. Against this is a minimum of 7 below this year on the night of Jan. 20. The difference in the maximum in the two months is less pronounced, the high- for the month just ended being 53 against a 4S for the January of 1S30. December Warm Too. December's average temperature --also far above the average here-was 23.3 degrees, a little more than 2 degrees lower than January's. R e c o r d s at the government weather bureau office in Charles City show that January was the warmest in 41 years of local record. At stations haying a longer record, it is shown that January of 1880 was appreciably warmer, probably averaging about 30 degrees in this locality. Other warm Januarys were those of 1914, 1919 and 1921. In this last named year the mean in Mason City was approximately 24 degrees, or within a degree and a half of the record hung up last month. Precipitation Under Normal. Precipitation for the month, according to the Globe-Gazette's records, totaled .58 of an inch. Virtually all of this was in the form of snow on Jan. IS and 19. Snow fell on several other days of the month but not in measurable amounts. Melting was rapid after every snow and the end of the month found no traces o£ snow except In places un exposed to sun. '" ; Eighteen days were listed as clear, 6 as partly cloudy and 7 as cloudy. OnXlS days the wind was out of the north, a strange fact in view of the month's balminess. Usually north winds, especially northwest winds, mean frigid temperatures in January. Day by Day Table. In studying the following table of day by day weather readings, readers will wish to keep in mind thaf, the observation is taknn daily at 8 o'clock and that the maximum given for any date is in fact the highest temperature of the preced- Cash Prize to Be Given Winning Entertainers at Legion Meetings.

Mr. Libby is being given an op nortunity to appear here by tho Ministerial association and will be expected to expound his views on disarmament at the gathering in the Baptist church. "Our organization did not go on record as sponsoring his coming here for the reason thnt the local pastors held divergent views about liis writings and public expressions," said the Rev. B. T. Erholm, pastor of the Ministerial association. "We felt, howevez', he should be given an opportunity to be heard and aro supplying him with a place to speak."
