SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JULY 18 R3 t935 PIED PIPER OF 1935 IS COMING Sanitary Expert to Start Campaign Against Rats in Community. E. N. Averill, sanitary expert from Fort Dodge is completing arrangements this week to start Monday on a campaign to eradicate rats from Mason City. This modern "pied piper" uses a non poisonous bacterial culture and chemical element, which js recommended by the bureau of biological survey of the federal department of agriculture. The chemical spreads an epidemic among rats and causes a wholesale depopulation of the infested sections. The germ does not affect animal pets or human beings. Mr. Averill plans to start his campaign in the city dumps and in the alleys and sewers and later will concentrate in the business section. Local men will be employed to assist in spreading the chemical. Mr. Averill had with him a. department of agriculture bulletin calling attention to the fact that the brown rat multiplies at an astounding rate, which, if allowed to go on uncurbed, would become a menace to civilization.

HUMBOLDT, July 18. (UP) -Chronic pessimists about the depression and hard times might well take a lesson from John Hoff, a resident here since 1903. Hoff has been a cripple since 1908, when infantile paralysis robbed him of the use of his legs and arms. Yet Hoff, who is married and has two children, has kept free from debt by doing the housework while his wife managed their farm. For the third time Uelbert Green, convicted murderer of his uncle, his wife and his mother-in- law, has been spared from Utah firing squad by governor, pending hearings on insanity petition. Green, given choice of gallows or firing squad, as provided by Utah law, chose latter.

IOWA INDUSTRIES GROW STEADILY Income Share Paid Workers Is Less Than in U. S. as Whole. IOWA CITY, July IS.--Steady development keeping pace with the growth in the entire nation and stout resistance to cyclical fluctuations are major characterizations of Iowa's manufacturing during the past quarter century. These are among the conclusions drawn by Howard Bowen of the University of Iowa after surveys of Iowa income conducted for the university's bureau of business research and the Iowa Planning board. The university man also discovered that the share of income paid to Iowa workers is less than the share received by workers in the United States as a whole and the long run tendency has been toward a widening of this differential. Iowa plants average considerably smaller than those in the rest of the nation, too. Between "li.OOO and 100,000 persons are employed in manufacturing industries, and the annual gross output ranges from $550,000,000 to 5900,000,000. Some SO per cent of the net income produced is disbursed for salaries and wages. The estimated 1934 average wage a worker is $973; a salaried employe, $2,525; and the average compensation, all employes, 51,224. Thieves Loot Algona Cafe, Billiard Parlor ALGONA, July IS.
