N, Hawkeyes vs.: Gophers f'That Iowa - Minnesota athletic feud has brokeirqut again in a new 'quarter. .This time Don'Gilbert is J iif the center of the action. ·, (The controversy reached its cli- "max Wednesday noon when the Minnesota follower reported that his^ team had been beaten by the i, Iowa branch of the University of 'Illinois. , Because he was in a minority, he was straightway fined 25 cents by the club's tail-twister, M i l e s Chenault, who is assessing the penalty mentioned a Mason City athlete or two who had been attracted into the Gopher camp in years past. Some of Mason City's ancient ordinances may look strange today, but we don't believe there are »ny in the category of this one passed by the Waterloo, Nebr., city government in 1910 as quoted by the alert and progressive Kanawha Reporter.-" It shall be illegal for any barber in this town to eat onions between the hours of 7 a. m. and 7 p.m." * . Named Valentine Dr. Lloyd Gustafson last Sunday told the jnembers of his First Methodist congregation the story of a wedding lie performed on Feb. 13. The young couple was sponsored by persons he married five years ago. In filling out the forms the pastor learned from the bridegroom that his middle initial was V. "What does the V stand for," he asked. "It stands for Valentine, but 1 don't like it," he answered. On learning that the date of birth was Feb. 14, Dr. Gustafson stated it was understandable that the man's parents had wanted to call him Valentine. "But I don't like it," repeated the bridegroom with a touch of vehemence. "But I am glad of one thing," he added with a smile. "I'm glad I wasn't born on Ground Hog's Day." That just about broke up the wedding. * Last week Mickey Judd sent a copy of the Tucson, Ariz., Rotary Club bulletin to Judge W. P. Butler of Mason City. The bulletin contained the announcement of the candidacy of Elbert A. Gump of the Tucson Club for governor of dis trict 166 of Rotary. Judge Butler rubbed his eyes in wonderment. 1 was the same Elbert Gump who had been a pupil in the fifth grad taught by the Mason Cityan at Sey mour, Iowa, fn 1907. : .. . ' * Stavanger Gardener A. L. Lake, building contractor, · came in this tveek Avith a clipping Railroad Battles The present effort of Robert 31. Young to wrest control of the New York Central Railroad from a group of bankers is reminiscent of the great battles between the industrial moguls of a more colorful era 50 or"75 years ago. Old timers here remember the repercussions of the battle in which Edward Harriman, operator of the Southern Pacific and Union Pacific, attempted to grasp control, of the Northern Pacific from Jim Hill in April, 1901. Buying orders from both Hill, who was backed by Morgan and Harriman, sent the price of the stock from around 100 to 1,000 in four days. John Willson, father of Meredith Willson, was among those who watched the stock gyrations in the Lamson Brothers Company brokerage office here at the time. Willson later told about a retired locomotive engineer ' and former employe of the Northern Pacific, who came in to see what the market was doing. Noting Northern Pacific was up to around 300 he made the remark "that stock isn't worth that much" and sold short. The next morning the man was called upon for additional funds to cover his sale for the stock which continued to go up. He lost his life's savings in the deal. * An excellent book on the maneuvers and escapades of the Jim Hills, Harrimans and others of their ilk, who made up a most interesting chapter in American history, is "The Age of the Moguls," by Stewart H. Holbrook. * 100 Years Ago Mindful of Editor Earl Hall's continued plea for enforcement of highway safety, Judge William P. A^GOLA BOUND--Gordon and Dorothy Van Laan and daughter, Margaret L o u i s e visit with the Rev. Peter J. Jansen, minister of the First Congregational Church, while in Mason City for their commissioning Sunday evening as missionaries to Angola or Por- ·f 11 rrnooo \Xf nt-f A 4Vinn tuguese West Africa. Butler sent him the following quotation: "The alarming increase of. . , disasters, the frightful destruction of life, of limbs and of property call loudly for a strict enforcement of the most exemplary rules." The judge found it in the Supreme Court rulings on the case of Frink and Company versus Coe in the 1854 reports--100 years aso. from a Stavanger, Norway, newspaper-about his brother, Johan Loken, w h o m he has not seen ·since lie left Norway 55 years ago. The Mason Cityan changed his name from Loken (named after a lake in Norway) when he came to 'America. The article revealed that Johan had carved an interesting career for himself in Norway as a horticulturist. At present he is city gardener for the city of Stavanger. Those who haye seen the public gardens in European cities know this is a big assignment. The newspaper paid a high tribute to Johan, stating that he had, often with limited funds, created much beauty and thus brought much happiness to those who have seen his gardens. The gardener, himself, had this to say: "I enjoy music and believe that it has much in common with flowers; Both music and flowers appeal to the ideal and what is good in man and both make life richer and better. I often regard a display of flowers as a symphony." · : ' . · · * Mrs. Erwin Paschka, who lives lust.west of the American Crystal Sugar plant, and Mrs. Harvey Major, whose home is just north of the Ideal Sand and Gravel plant, know that spring is here more than a month ahead of the March 2l equinox. Mrs. Paschka saw a robin and Mrs. Majbr, a meadowlark, at their homes Saturday.

From Here to Angola Is Destination of Van Loans Few people could locate Angola* on a map, even though the country covers 481,351 square miles or slightly less than twice the area of Texas. Few more have probably even heard of it. Angola or Portuguese West Africa is the destination of Gordon and Dorothy Van Laan, agricultural missionaries, and their year old daughter, Margaret Louise. They came to Mason City to be commissioned Sunday evening at the First Congregational Church. The Van Laans will be sponsored .n part by the Mason City church .hough their finances w i l l be landled by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions of the Congregational Church o which the local church con- ribulcs. They will-spend five years with he Obimbundu tribe in the high- ands east of Lobito bay in central Angola. It is in this area that the Canadian and American Congrega- ional Churches and the Plymouth Brethren Mission work. The work of the missions has been primarily educational, especially agricul- .ural. Support Own Church The :· Obimbundu support their own church even to furnishing heir own ministry. The church is ndigenoiis in Angola and the mis- ionaries do not interfere with its aperatioh, but act as advisors only. There is no race problem as'the overnment assimilates the people /hen they reach certain education- 1 nnd economic stations. The Portuguese have owned the frican territory since 1575. Its oast ' line stretches 1,000 miles outh from the mouth of the Congo iver. The cool season lasts from une to September; and the rainy, rom October to May; the heaviest ainfall coming with storms in Vpril. The coast plains are unsuit- ble to Europeans while the inland lateau is healthful and invigorat- ng. · The population is made up of 4,18,000 natives and mulattoes and 0,000 Europeans. In the Obimbun- u area the natives are as yet in primitive stage of agricultural evelopment, tilling with hoes or sen. Their, major crops of maize nd manioc are anemic and their minor crops, which range from pples to citrus to bananas are no letter. Into this land will plunge the /an Laans, short on experience iut with faith in an ideal. They iope to be advisors and teachers, ring in new crops and improve he old and in this way help a mall portion of the world's un- [ernourished peoples, two-thirds of vhich are near starvation. Months of Preparation Months of preparation are be- ind Gordon and Dorothy with many more months to come. They must have clothes, tools and mis- ellaneous supplies for five years. "heir equipment must fulfiil the pecial needs of the climate and ie civilization. But (hat is not all Vhen the Van Laans sail in March School Play Proves Laugh Near to Tear* Laughter is never far from fears That was true at Friday night' Mason City High School drama do partment presentation of "Th Great Big Doorstep." Credit fo that is due partly to Frances Gooci rich and Albert Ilackett for thei well written comedy. It was due also Friday night however, to a high school cas which played the comedy in a manner which would have beer creditable to more mature perfor mers and to their director, Mis Helen E. Thomas. The two leading roles played b., Kathryn Jensen and Roger Connei Iy were particularly well done Miss Jensen's handling of the Ca jun dialect and the ability of hot to stay in character were especial Iy commendable. The play deals with the effort of the Crochet family to get house to match "The Great Bi c Doorstep," a beautiful w h i t carved display which they hac fished from the river. Family Problem The pathos which heightens the comedy lies in the prayers of Mrs Crochet that the house may come in time to keep her family to gether. Less ably done than it was by Miss Jensen, the portrayal o Mrs. Crochet could have killed the point entirely. Connelly did the lazy, happy-go lucky Commodore Crocket to per fection, flaring up at the slightest hint that he was a no-good ditch digger instead of a drainage expert--and happy as ever two minutes later. Outstanding in the supporting cast was Joanne Hagen as the sec ond daughter, destined to become a Sister of the Poor but still more interested in romance. Another heavy part ably handled was tha of the eldest daughter, played bi Donna Ouverson, fearful at age 18 that she would become a sour old maid and anxious to leave the Crochet shack for adventure anc pork sausage in New Orleans. t will not be for Angola, but for .Isbon where they will undergo inc months of language training, "rom there the next stop will be ·enguela, Angola, and a rail trip nland to the Obimbundu. Mr. and Mrs. Van Laan are well reparcd as teachers. Gordon re- ently received his Ph D in agricul- ure at Washington State. He has one graduate work in the soil ciences, botany, chemistry and oriculture. And he had a taste of he tropics while serving in the ombat engineers in the Philip- ne Islands during World War II. orothy is also a graduate of Washington State and has been orking as an accounting clerk for ie college. The Van Laans chose as the pic of their sermon at the service t ...'the. : First Congregational hurch Sunday morning, "Faith r'Our World." Dogs in His Bed Elna and Fleece, the bouncy If ypur. headlights brighten a lot hen : yqu v.stcp on the gas that cans trouble and you should have our ·; battery checked quickly. Crochet twins, and Arthur, the son who left home because his dogs insisted on sleeping on the Commo dore's bed, completed the family which kept the audience amused with its antics. Mr. Tobin, the Texan played by Roger Hunt, and Tayo Delacroix the Grass Margin, La., barber played by Bob Morrison, providec excitement by competing for Topa Crochet's favor. Dewey Crochet the commodore's brother, whose check "bounced" instead of buying the house, was played by Davic Millhiser. Clarice Sentman, as the New Orleans florist who saved the day, completed the capable cast. A bouquet is due, too, to the stage crew for creating the very realistic shack which stayed in one piece until the family Was ready to move. The high school, theater orchestra directed :by Marjorie Smith Stoddard provided the music before the curtain, commendably on time. -- T.J.J. Cpl.
