---Speaking of Foods^---Garden Picnic Is Birthday Celebration Birthdayl parties are one of the rewards of childhood, but whether or not they'd come under the heading of rewards as far as purer, s are concerned is something else again. The food column this week suggests ways of making the^vent less painful than it might ordinarily be, and for summertime children, this is fine. For (hose whoso birthdays come when the weather says, "Stay indoors," that's it, brother. By LUCY R E E V E S *--- - -modeling clay, or some other busy- hands equipment will keep everybody happy. There's no need to worry about what will happen to Picnic food for small children is the; subject of an article from my favorite California "Sunset" magazine and I'm passing it on to young mothers. A garden picnic for small fry has some obvious advantages. First, there's no entertainment problem. With a sand box or a wading pool or a swing at hand, the -guests will find plenty . of ways to work off their youthful spirits. Lacking any of these, plastic-bubble pipes (the modern version of the soap-bubble idea,) TRY A G-G CLASSIFIED AD! the rugs and the upholstery. As for the food, a box lunch is fun for the youngsters and easily prepared. Little bread baskets or sand pails may be used instead of boxes. The.point is (o have each guest's lunch individually packed in some attractive fashion. Here's a good menu for such a parly. Everything except the milk and dessert is to be packed in the box. Wrap each item separately m wax paper or sandwich bags and PLAN NOW TO BUY STOCKER and FEEDER CATTLE 4,000 Head Selling At The ST.

Sandwiches: Tuna and cheese seem to be perennial favorites with the kindergarten set. Cut the sandwiches in fancy shapes with cooky cutters or try rolled sandwiches for a change. Deviled eggs: Add a little cottage cheese to the filling to make it fluffy. F r u i t i o n skewers: Used canned fruits-for-salad. Drain well and string on wooden skewers -- or pressed papeiv sucker holders. You may want to add an extra maraschino cherry or two, for color and good ealing. Milk or chocolate milk: Provide each guest with his own personalized drinking glass. Buy plastic glasses and write the names on them with bright red nail polish. And remember, straws are always a welcome added attraction. Ice cream clowns: Prepare these just before serving. Place a round sugar cooky on a small paper plate and a scoop of ice cream in the center of the cooky. Make the clown's face by pressing^ his "features" into the ice cream. . . . raisins for the eyes and nose and a bit of maraschino cherry for the mouth. Set an ice cream cone on his head at a rakish angle for a hat and serve at once. The youngsters eat it cone fashion--no spoons are needed. Birthday cake: If you're doing your own decorating, you'll find the miniature colored plastic trains and automobiles fine ornaments for the cake. Potter Tells His Early Experiences in Politics EDITOR'S NOTE; ThU \t t h * ' s i x t h of * i«ri.s of Ittttri from Merit PoM«r, formtr Mason Cltyan »nd now of Sherman O«k», Calif., wh«rt h« writes a columivfor the V»lley Times of North Hollywood. In this letter Potter continues Mi remlniscenses of event* in Mason City several decades ago. By MERLE POTTER . AVith so much politics floating .around in the air I suppose its only natural, if not inevitable, that these calch-as-eatch-can reminiscenses concerning former; days in Mason City must at one time or another get around to a word or two on 'tha 1. very subject, . ; ' My first recollection of politics is of standing on our dock at Dodges Point in plcar.Lake, and reading a* MANLY--Debra Jeancttc is the name of the new daughter in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Hendrickson of Washington, 111., their first child.

Probably it was in the "Globe-Gazette." 11 said, "Our Beloved Nestor Is DEAD." 1 didn't know what Nestor mount until my dad explained to me that it was the equivalent of a "wise counselor." In this case it meant the then very aged Senator Allison had died. What I am going to write now will doubtless send ,my beloved mother, Mrs. T. A. Potter, who lives out there at 40 Oak Drive in Forest Park, into a furious rage and make my dear sister, Mrs. F. D. Pearcc of 242 Willowbrook Drive, foam at the mouth, hut it's the way I see it. Had Only One Party At the turn ot this century for all practical purposes Iowa had only one parly and that party was the noble GOP. However, the GOr did have a progressive branch, and this progressive branch was represented by Sen. A. B. Cummins and his Jlk. So the Republicans had pretty good sport with their politics in Iowa in the early years of the 1900's between the battles ol the. Progressives and the Stantl patters, as the contrary element was called..The Demos just weren't considered worth mentioning. Now my dad always traded with the Progressives--he was on their side of the fence always. I well remember indexing his copy books --which had to be done in those days before they thought ot the carbon copy g i m m i c k s , and I recall the vast correspondence he had with Governor and later Senator Cummings. 1 even remember being taken to Des Moines to meet the august senator. 1 remember it so well because when we went into his office my clad tapped his head with his fingers to remind me that 1 shoult take off my hat in the presence o. such a distinguished gentleman And he really was distinguished, 1 think. W i l l Bring Denials Well, the statement I'm making that will bring instant denials from all members of my family (which of course includes my. cousin, Ben Webster; my aunt, Neliie Bright and by marriage such persons a Charles Strickland of. the powc company in Mason City) is that i he were alive today my dad wouk be a Democrat, because isn't 1 rather generally recognized tha the Democrats today are the pro gressives or make it "radicals' 1 you will? Whatever else he m a have been politically and otherwise Truman Potter never took a bad scat for anyone when new idea, came along. However, he was also a fellow fo taking the main chance, and to hin it would have been as idle as blow ing into the face of a h u r r i c a n e tc be a Democrat in Iowa. I well re member his telling me that it h lived in the soutli he would be . Democrat--in those days. A littl more along this line later on. Another thing I can recall abou early day politics in Mason City was getting up at 4 a. m. l h a w k "Globe-Gazettes" day-aftc election mornings. The p a p c would tell the results. I m a g i n those dark ages svhcn they didn' h a v e radio and television to let th public in on what was going on 1 can recalled such persons a Claude Porter, Senator Dollivc and others of that stamp being i; those early a. m. editions of th Went to Convention I really got my feet wci, politi cally, when my Dad took me to th GOP convention in Chicago in 19J2 T h a t ' w a s the t i m e W i l l i a m I Iowa r Tali and Teddy Roosevelt got int a knock down and drag 'em ot fight. Dad was n delegate from th fourth district, and he fixed it s ! was a page. This m e a n t lha f could rove all over the convcn lion floor at will. I heard Elih Root, the p e r m a n e n t c h a i r m a n gavel the "insurgents"--the Tcdd "forces" into submission with th "steam-roller taclic.s" first brough into play at that convention. Naturally, Dad was a Tedd supporter, and when Teddy dr cided to "bolt" Dad "bolted" wit h i m . H e ; h a d talked with Tcdd personally and caught the "Teddy fever--and bad. While at this con vcntion Dad received a telegram from Duncan Rule, at that Urn one of Mason City's best know and best loved attornies. The tele grnm reach "Truman A. Potter, Great Nortl crn Hotel, Chicago, Hi.: 'Go dow with the ship, but don't holt.' ' But Dad did bolt---that's just on of the reasons why I say he won! be a Democrat if he were aliv today. Or shali we say until afte the recent R e p u b l i c a n convenlio f believe Ike is progressive cnoug to suit h i m . - Wai Police Judge Another vivid m e m o r y I have i that convention is of a come! young woman who cruisc-d up an I down Michigan Blvd. silting in tl H i. .- -. i- - e _._ _ _ _ . . · ,,» _. ,, f^. ohilc Hay." Thai's the wny song uggers operated in those days. hat a backward race we were en! Bill Hayes, who died in a fire our house when he and my Dnd cro suffocated there more t h a n years ago, was also at that condition. He'd just, gotten out of e law school at Iowa as I re- ember it. lie became the firs: olicc judge Mason City ever line' .iring my Dad's first adminls- alion as mayor. Later on he be- imc county clerk. There are mnny things r might enlion about my Dad's service r six years us mayor of Mason ity, but 1 like this one host. Foi s first term he ran against ant efeated the very estimable John tanton. At that time J. H. Me wen had served'the city for many cars as city clerk. Romembci hat fine whiskers he had., He rok the streetcar every nftornooi r his home in Clear Lake. Got a Rait* The first day he took office, my ad called Mr. McEwen into his fice. "Mac" had spent the bes me o f - h i s mature life as citj erk. He had naturally voted for ohn Stanton. He thought he was oing to be fired, was resigned to nd what a beating Schanke and I okl We weren't oveiYina med as clegates to the state convention! But by an odd chance, Fred Bier- turn, then Democratic politicnl oss from the fourth district, was the saddle «t the Dnvenporl con- enlion nnd greatly to my surprise WHS named n delegate to the na- OUB! convention in New York oming up in July. It was in New York t h a t I really it my political eyclecth. That was 10 occnslon of the despora(q battle etween Al Smith and \V, G Me doo, and ended In the nomination John W. Dnyls after 10? ballots, /e. were royally entertained by n m m a h y Hall. I met such persons s Franklin D, Roosevelt, who was i n wheelchair at that time; New- on D. ISnker, Wilson's secretary of Var; Jqsephus Daniels, secretary f the Navy in the same ndmiu- strntion; heard William Jennings "ryan speak, met the lovable Will ogers, David Lawrence, now ccli or of .the United Slates News nnd Vorld Report, and droves of others. Run for County Attorney Returned to Mason City broke but iser, b u t , n o t wise enough not to et them use my name as a candl- 'nle for county attorney, for Cerro lordo County. I'd studied law in lie office of t h a t splendid gentle- i i a n , ' R c t n l o y - J . Glass, hiul gone to 3os Moines one day, supriscd my- olC by passing the state bar exam- nation so I was eligible for county ttorncy,. OC course it was just a gesture. lo f u r as I know, not u single mom or of my own family -voted for me --not even my own mother. I think Mil Butler was my. opponent,] The ole was something like 32,000 for 1111 lo 1,617 lor me, Where those ,000 votes en me from I'll nevei now. Obviously, "I wuz robbed." I onsidorod demanding a recount laimlng the election was "rigged ist that. Dad asked him how uch he got pnld. "One hundred a\nd twenty-five ollars a month," Mac replied. 'Hereafter it will be $200 n lonlh," Dad told him. "Come ii nd see me any lime you have any roblems to talk over. Mac wept. About the same scene was enact i with Fred Wilson, then the city ngineer. Came the lime for dad t un for re-election) and some o 'red's critics told my old man tha e'd belter fire Fred--he was s : tcsly." he would cost my dad n east 200 voles. "Maybe," said dad, "but ther ire no maps showing where ou ;ewcrs are placed in' Mason City t's all in Fred Wilson's head, don't dare fire him." I suspect that was only a ha ruth. He liked Fred very much-and everyone else in the world--d( spite his occasional blustering. My own participation in Ma so ?ily and Ccrro Gordo politics ha everal. amusing angles. In 191 rcsh out oC college, I had bough he weekly newspaper, the "Win kon Standard" at'Waukon, up thci n picturesque Allamakee County i he northeast corner of the state. Tri«d to Enllit Came World War 1. I went dow o DCS Moines, tried to enlist in th Vnvy, couldn't pass the physicn examinations, ran into "Bill" Hard ng, then governor, and he askc no to help out o n ' t h e office of th uel administration. This I was ver inppy to do because Charles Web ter, Ben Webster's father,,was th of that fuel administration, iclpcd "Uncle Charley" get clectc o the job of railroad commission er, a position he subsequently hel or many years thereafter. In 1938 sitting at a lunch countc n the Chamberlain Hotel in DC Moines I read about Wood row Wl ion's League of Nations. Up unt hat lime I'd been a Republican )iit I became an ardent internatior alist right there on the spot an 'vc been one ever since, espccinll since in this last war on the sla of General Clay. Now I'm happy to be able 1 relax. The long fight is over. Bot candidates for the presidency ar ntcrnationalists, the United Ni ions, poor as it may be in presci achievements, is an accompllshc act and is supported by most GO and Democratic leaders. But it wasn't that way in J01 and when I c a m e back to Maso :ity I listed myself as a Dcmocra t h i n k there may have been abou 2,000 more Democrats in the cou y at that time. Prominent amon hcse were grand old Charl Brady, the druggist; Al 7ilmc also a druggist; A, M. and W. C Schankc. Jim Williams, John Ga voy, t h e plumber--remember h ·always referred to his wife as "0 ride"--and maybe a few others. Democrats in Fight Anyway, in 1024 the Democra ?ot into a statewide hnsscl. r Meredith, the publisher of "Beltc farming," and Clyde Herring, tl De.s Moines Ford dealer, were engaged in a struggle for power with Wilbur Marsh of Cedar Rapids, national treasurer of the Democratic party and n a t i o n a l committccman from Iowa, and John Sullivan of Waterloo, prominent political leader.

Interest by d a i r y pa Irons lo sell milk as well as crcnm hns made some action necessary by the local creameries'. Study Problem* Prior to the meeling, represen- ativcs ot the Osnge, St. 'Ansgar, Little Cedar, Slacyville,' R o c k Creek, and Lylc, Minn., Creameries hnve held a n u m b e r of meetings and have toured through Min- ic.soUi and Wisconsin studying the problems involved In .receiving milk and cream and the re-or- gnnizalion of the creameries into a more e f f i c i e n t organization. Management and the efficient use of labor and e q u i p m e n t with sufficient volume trt lower the m a n u f a c t u r i n g costs, are a must if creameries arc to meet competition. The creameries involved rqalh.c that w i t h decreasing volume they cannot compete with Ihe m i l k markets of larger operations nnd that it is vitally importanl that they band together and preserve their co-operative method of m a r - keting dairy products if they hope to receive a f a i r share of Ihc consumer's doUnc in future years.
