Legion Post to Revive Old Time Armory Dances 'Family Atmosphere"* TRINITY REPORTS WORK OF YEAR Sought; To Start Saturday Night. The glory and prestige which were once a possession of the Mason City Legion oldtime dance will he sought in a revival of this institution at the armory Saturday night. Over a period of 10 years this weekly dance, in which square dances shared time with moderr dances, drew a total patronage ot approximately 300,000 persons. On one occasion the American Legion Monthly sent two of its representatives to Mason City--a writer and a photographer--to do an article on the Mason City oldtime dance, which was referred to in the story as the world's greatest. Blot U'ith Success. The objective from the start was to provide a low-priced and wholesome entertainment which would appeal to the average family, from Willie and Jane to Uncle John and Aunt Martha. Phenomenal success was met with for almost 10 years. Then came the advent of legalized beer and a multitude of rival bids for :he patronage which had up to that time B een the Legion's. There was a shrinkage of attendance and eventually the dances were being run at a. weekly loss. The only course was to discontinue them. Being Revived. On the theory that the conditions which led to reduced patronage for the oldtime dances have changed and that a substantial group of *forth lowans once again will relish .he "family atmosphere" of the armory dances, they are being revived. R. C. Patrick, state head of the 'orty and Eight, Tom Nettleton, a last post commander, and W. Earl iall have been appointed by Garrett Chapman, present post commander, as the committee in charge of arrangements. "So far as possible," said Mr. Patrick, 'we intend to conduct these dances like those which are held in connection with our occasional Legion and auxiliary joint parties at the armory. We're getting out cards to a number of those who never miss one of these parties. Open to Public. "The dances will be open to the public, however, at the old price, 25 cents apiece with tax. There will be modern dances and square dances, in the proportion that the crowd seems to want them. And during the course of the evening there will be at least one circle dance, if the crowd desires it. "As was the case in the first 30 years of these dances, we intend to keep them clean. Dnmkcness will not be tolerated. We want to appeal to those who come seeking an evening of wholesome entertainment in a frien"y crowd. To do this we must have a generous patronage." Continuing of 2 Services m Morning Voted by Congregation. Trinity Lutheran congregation held the adjourned session of the annual meeting Wednesday evening. Interesting reports were given by the various organizations, covering- the work of the past year. During' the year, the men of the brotherhood, assisted by the various organizations, painted the exterior of the church, installed new -light fixtures and redecorated the interior. Besides carrying on the work at Trinity and Calvary churches, the congregation contributed more than 5600 to missions, education and benevolence. The men of the Calvary church, assisted by the Sunday school and the guild, have installed a new furnace which supplies adequate heat even in the cold- ist weather. In order to avoid overcrowding at the morning services. Trinity church inaugurated about a year ago a plan of holding two morning services. This arrangement has met with such general favor that the congregation decided to continue this plan. The following schedule will be the time of services at the Trinity church at SOS South Pennsylvania avenue, an early service at 8:45 a. m. Sunday school at 9:45 a. m., and the usual morning serv- ce at 10:45 a. m. The Calvary Sunday school will continue to meet at 9 a. m. and the morning service will be held at 9:45 a. m. with an eve- ng service at 7:30 o'clock. Trinity church paid off all indebtedness on its- new building site at ;eorgia avenue and Second street northeast in the month of December, 1934, and has now in the build- ng fund, including the C. A. Gus- :afson bequest, about 52,500. The adies aid contributed the major jortion of the sum required to re:ire the debt on the building site and is now committed to a program adding to the building fund. Addison Olson was elected financial secretary and Orin Peterson vill be the recording secretary for ,he coming year. The new officers will be installed Sunday, Jan. 19. at the. morning services at 10:45 o'clock.

ELIMINATION OF DEAD ENDS ON MAINS PLANNED Repairs at Disposal Plant Also Be Made With Federal Funds. One more WPA project has been released and another partry released, according to word received from District Engineer Shclton, Waterloo, by City Manager Herbert T. Barclay Wednesday. Fifty- one per cent of the funds requested for the laying of water mains to eliminate dead ends of the present system and the entire federal fund lequired for the repairing- of the sewage disposal plant have been allocated, according' to Mr. Shelton. The original request for funds for ihe water main project asked tor $10,700 in federal funds and 59,in local funds. A total of ,?3.- PS7 in federal funds, to be met with. ,4 70.50 in local funds, was asked for the repairing: of the sewage disposal plant. The requests were filed Sept. 4. To Complete System. Tn the original request the dead ends of the water mains were to be connected on Virginia avenue southeast from Sixth street to Eighth street; on Fourth street southeast from Rhode Island to Vermont; on Sixteenth street northwest from Madison to Monroe; on Jefferson .southwest from Nineteenth to Twenty-third streets: on Monroe avenue southwest from Twenty-third to Twenty-eighth, streets; on Twenty-seventh street southwest from Federal avenue to Jefferson avenue; and a tie to Wildwood addition from the north. The last project will be the fiist one started under the present setup. About half of the projects will be undertaken but a definite program has not been set out yet, according: to Mr. Barclay. The dead ends will be connected to allow better circulation of water in the mains and complete the system. Proposed repairs at the disposal plant, for which the entire project has hecn approved, will he madn principally on the filter house. A total of S5.45~.50 will be spent on this project. Disintegration Found. According to the engineer's report in the original request, the wet condition ot the interior of '{"*£- building, due to spraying of st "*~ ag-e into the air, together with fro; action in winter, almost entirely, disintegrated the concrete foundation and curtain walls, since the concrete was not dense enough to lesist the action. The foundation is in bad condition, according to the report, and the filter rock is exposed to the action of frost. It is proposed to rebuild the foundation above the ground with. 1:2:3 concrete and replace the curtain \valls with a four inch vitrified brick wall.
