CT)--Striking out at what he termed governmental interference, Col. Robert R. McCormick, editor and publisher of the Chicago Tribune, told the Black Hawk County Republican club that the nation's ilia canot be cured by "economic dissipation.** The interference of the govern ment, the Chicago editor said, with the individual "is merely a reversion to the powers exercised by kings in the period immediately following the dark ages and before freedom was achieved. "Hitler's method, the entailing of property and binding the owner to the soil, toward which the AAA is heading, is worse.*' He characterized governmental interference as the type "practiced by Mussolini and preached by Tugwell." CIVIC ORCHESTRA SUPPORT URGED Dr. Franchere, Formerly of Minneapols Symphony, Lauds Group. Dr. C. M. Franchere, who served for four years as president of the Mason City Civic Music association, stated Thursday he believed the community would rally to the support of the Civic orchestra next week. Dr. Franchere, a musician himself, at one time played in the Minneapolis Symphony orchestra, and has been a consistent supporter of good music in Mason City. "I believe," said Dr. Frnnchcre, "that this orchestra promises to grow into an institution of which Mason City will be proud if we give it the proper encouragement. The extraordinary progress which music has made in the schools is building' up some fine material to supplement the older musicians of the city in such an organization. I believe there are at least 100 residents in Mason City who will come forward as patrons of the Mason City Civic orchestra. "They'll find, too, that Joe Power is a good program builder. He'll play only the best music, but he'll bring . them a majority of things they ! know and love, and lead them grad- : ually into the newer and more beautiful things with which they are not so familiar. I am sure that the people of Mason City will enjoy the two concerts the Civic orchestra will nroduce this season, in addition to vhich there will be at least two more concerts offered by the Civic Music association, one being an bul of town artist of note." The Civic Music association will conduct a campaign from Feb. 18 to 2-1, to be known as Civic orchestra week. Purchasers of tickets will be admitted to two concerts of the Civic orchestra and probably two others. The first concert by the orchestra will be given Feb. 26. Deafened Here Are Enthusiastic Over New, Easy Hearing Method The hard of hearing of Mason City are urging their friends, similarly afflicted, to try 'the bone conduction method of hearing now being demonstrated by Smith Optical Co., 21 East State. Not since their hearing difficulty developed had these deafened people heard music, the radio and sounds about them so clearly, so naturally and without the least nervous strain. They participated easily, comfortably in group con- versations from all angles and at considerable distance. Nothing is worn on or in the ear--only a tiny receiver on the head back of the ear. Sound is transmitted by this instrument, the new amplified bone conduction Acousticon, direct to the auditory nerves, avoiding impaired organs. Complete information can be had by calling at Smith Optical Co. or writing to Acousticon, 580 Fifth Ave., New York City. Just about the smartest styles you've ever looked at.
