W PERMANENT BIRTHDAY BALL COMMITTEE NAMED F O U R MEMBERS OF MASON CITY GROUPS CHOSEN Will Be in Charge of Future Birthday Balls and of Allotting Funds. The President Roosevelt birthday ball is to become a permanent in- titution in Mason City, an event 0 be staged each Jan, 30 to raise unds not only for fighting infan- ilt paralysis, but for whatever other welfare work may be deemed most ssential. The organization of a permanent ommittee to handle the birthday iall in years to come and to be in charge of the allocation of funds raised was announced Thursday. This committee is made up of Willis G. C. Bagley, president of the Chamber of Commerce, who will act as chairman: Mrs. C. A. Anderson, president of the Parent-Teachers tssociation council; Mrs. Curtis Amen, representative of the Woman's club, and C. W. Hickox, president of the Mason City Trades and Labor assembly. To Stage Project. This group, it was pointed out, 3 representative of most groups in :he community and will be in position not only to stage the event in an effective manner, but will be in position to know where funds can oe usefi for the greatest good. A total of $273.31, residue of the funds raised at the 1935 ball, are oeing turned over to the committee. This together with the funds expected from the 1936 ball is expected to place a substantial sum in the hands }f the committee for 1936 disbursement. Up to this time the President Roosevelt birthday balls have been handled by voluntary groups. At the first event, in 1931, Dr. T. A. Nettleton was chairman and Leo Sweesy. secretary-treasurer of a committee that handled the project. Last year the Mason City Trades and Labor assembly assumed charge under the chairmanship of Glen Woodward, Leo Sweesy remaining as secretary-treasurer. Chosen by Governor. Leo J. Carle was selected by Gov. Clyde L. Herring as chairman of the 1936 birthday ball. It was through his efforts that the permanent committee was organized to handle the events in the future. · It was Mr. Carle's idea that the Roosevelt Birthday balls have received such, an impetus by the very fact that the president of the United States was 1 former patient of the Warm Springs, Ga., institution and that the psychological effect of this is one to be capitalized on for the future, regardless of who is president. Then too, there is an advantage in participating in an event that is nationwide and receiving nationwide publicity, it was pointed out. As now arranged 70 per cent pi the net proceeds of the dance wil remain in Mason City to be used for whatever purpose the committee may direct, while 30 per cenf goes to the Warm Springs foundation, which is sponsoring the nationwide program. Goes to University. It is possible for a part of the 30 per cent to become available to help any Mason City victim of Infantile paralysis by the fact that part o: this fund is distributed to such in stitutions as the University of low? hospital, where Dr. Arthur Steindler is in charge. While the committee will have complete charge of the 70 per cen of the proceeds of the dance tha will be left in Mason City and can use the funds for any good purpose that it may determine, nevertheless, it is pointed out, attention should be focused at all times on the original purpose of the Roosevelt birthday bail, a means of fightin" infantile paralysis. A house to house canvass is to he staged so as to give everyone an ipportunity to participate in the event. The dance will be held at the armory, with Craven's Golden Gate 10-piece band from Ames supplying the music. A number of specialties are also being arranged, further details of which will be nounced from time to time.

Charter members of the Kiwanis club were honored Thursday noon in Hotel Hanford at a program celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of ;he Mason .City organization.

Lauding noble characters, which may be found in lowly and high positions, Mr. Dibble said that noble characters become such by doing. Innate value is also vital. He concluded with speaking of the Kiwanis slogan, "We Build." He said that the Kiwanis club builds material things frequently but only insofar as they help to build a character and strong spiritual values. Mr. Dibble was introduced by Dr. Clarence E. Flynn.
