Say, will you run down to the Log Cabin Oil Company and get me a can of their new DIXIE GOLDEN GASOLINE? I never have trouble with that gasoline. It is the best gasoline in town?" Emerson Occlccr gave n talk at the Hi-Y club meeting Wednesday night, presenting a history of the packing industry. He showed how the industry, which had once been only In the east seaboard states, had moved westward. The meeting was followed by a discussion and the group decided to go through the Jacob E.

PACKER HELPING FARMER ON CORN AND KOG SETUP Two Year Sales Record of All Fanners Supplied by Company. The processing and floor taxes cost the Jacob E. Decker and Sons company packing plant; $823,000 for the three months ending Jan. 31, with a continually mounting rate scheduled for February and March. The floor tax on the inventory of the company when the new tax went into effect totaled 551,000 for the Mason City packing establishment. For November the concern paid $81,000 in processing tax on the basis of 50 cents a head. For December the tax was raised to $1 a head, bringing the total tax to $205,000. This tax rate remained in force through January, with the result that the tax reached ?2SB,000 for that period. On Feb. 1 the tax went up to 51.50 and in March. it will go to ?2,23, Pork Has Piled Up. The Decker officiala pointed out that too high a tax on hogs is certain to turn the consumers of meat products to sheep, beef, veal, poultry and other goods which under the present Equation are not taxed. Because of this there has been a tendency for pork products to pile up, depressing the marltet. The killing- of 0,000,000 pigs last fall, however, will tend to have a stimulating effect on the price structure during the period this spring when these normally would have been thrown on the market, it war stated. The Decker plant has played an important part in aiding farmers to get their "evidence" for the corn- hog contracts. Under the corn-hog contracts it is necessary for the farmer to furnish information on hogs he has sold the past two years. Work Two Shift*. The local packing plant, called on to furnish this Information, has employed a clerical staff of 20 persons, working in two shifts, going through the checks and placing records of the sales of all farmers on cards so the information would be available. In addition to the expense of maintaining this clerical force the company has been called upon to answer letters for this information. Between 6.00O and 7,000 of such letters have already been answered by the cdmn - "\y. All of this information has been furnished the farmer without charge. V:. New School Nearly Completed.

By ENOCH Glotxi-Gazette Clothes may make the man but It's different with eggs. That's one thing about quality that all of us know. For eggs in the shell have a. disconcerting way of confusing us as to their real character. One that's had its first birthday in storage may look as immaculate and innocent as its new laid brother fresh from the farm. But what a difference when they come to breakfast. Now this article is not about eggs. I merely borrowed the egg t o point out a truth about merchandise in general that every shopper ought to remember. Because two articles look alike don't jump to the conclusion that they are alike. The one that sells cheapest may not be such a bargain after all. And the other at a Jitgher price may, and often does; give you most for your money. Let's just consider for a moment a few of the common articles of commerce for which you spend your shekels and see how this applies. Slay Look Alike. You with the sweet tooth. Think of two chocolate creams. Two bon bons that may look exactly alike can be as far apart as the poles in quality. The one may be made of substitutes for pure cane sugar. The chocolate and flavoring materials may be of inferior grade and may be lacking entirely In that skilled knack of manufacture A. NOUEAt City Editor that imparts that taste that lingers. Yet you can't tell the difference by merely looking at them. Or suppose you want to do a bit of tinkering about the house and set out to buy a hammer. One may have a cast iron head with a handle of cheap wood so that It can't possibly give you much service beyond driving home a few carpet tacks, yet it will not look greatly different to the untrained eye from the hammer with forged steel head and carefully selected second growth hickory handle, balanced to a nicety by an expert craftsman and capable of standing up for years and years on all sorts of jobs. Same AVith Watch. Or to go still further afield-- when you select a watch, remember that a gold filled case looks no different than a solid gold one though your pawn broker would soon tell you the difference in value while the works inside the case look much the same even though the one be a seven jewel unadjusted and the other a 21 jewel fully adjusted for precision time-keeping. You'll find it pretty much the same no matter what merchandise you buy. It's unsafe to buy on appearance alone. The important thing is to realize the principle involved and learn to look for quality in everything you buy. Question the dealer from whom you buy and f i n d out why he is glad to sell you one article for 98 cents yet wants $2 for what seems to be its twin brother. There's always a reason and it may be a reason that will save you a lot of grief. Y. M. F. C. Class to Give 'Last Daze of School Adults to Impersonate School Children in Production. The Y. M. F.

Plans are already well developed in the local council to carry out this project. Sunday^vas Boy Scout Sunday and many of the troops attended church in a body. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, troop reunions were held i n ' n i n n y places. A part of Uic troop reunion program was the listing of all men and boys who had had four years or more experience in scouting as scouts. This is a part of the "Ten Year Program of Growth" which is being carried on by t.he Boy Scouts with the slogan "One out of every four new citizens, four yenr scout trained." In order to accomplish thin goal, all troops are endeavoring to enlist nil boys in scouting before they reach their thirteenth birthday as it has been proved that boys coming into scouting during their twelfth year, stuy longer and advance farther. Of the 312 new boys jHn- ing in the local council last year. 68 per cent of them were 12-year- old boys. The local council is lending its aid to attain the 10 year program of growth goal by the organization of new troops arid working with the farm boys in the lone scout program.
