Phone 888 COUNTY SHOULD FILE FOR MORE, DIRECTOR SAYS District Official Tells of Way to Put More Men on Activities. The release of two additional Ma/ son City WPA projects that wil put 58 more men to work was an nounced by William L. Yokom, Wa tcrloo, district director, who was here Tuesday night and Wednes day to confer with Cerro Gordo county supervisors and City Man ager "Herbert T. Barclay. The projects are: Storm se\ver from Willow creek north on Federal avenue to north side of State street and laterals east on cross streets one half block, catch basins at all corners of intersections. This project will furnish employment for 31 men and will draw an allotment of $3,120. Relocation and grading of North Carolina avenue at Fourteenth street. This will furnish employment for 27 men and bring $1,254 oj federal funds. This brings the total number employed on WPA projects across the 200 mark out of a total of 334 who have been certified as eligible. One of the reasons for Mr. Yokom's visit to Mason City was to answer the criticisms of the county board of supervisors that projects were not being approved rapidly enough to take up the slack of unemployment, as expressed in a letter to L. S. Hill, Des Moines, state administrator of WPA. Mr. Yokom met with C. R. Patton, chairman of the board and Supervisor Sondergaard at the courthouse Tuesday night. A. M Schanke, chairman of the Cerro Gordo county relief administration also sat in on the meeting. Not Enough Applications. The WPA director informed the supervisors that the reason Cerro Gordo county has not received its share of WPA project approvals was that not sufficient applications had been filed. With the release of the two city projects which he announced at. the meeting, Cerro Gordo county will lave been given approval on 15 of 28 projects asked for by the county, Mason City, Clear Lake and other agencies. One application was turned down in its present form. Of the 12 remaining the district office has no control over three, which are sponsored by the conser- ·ation commission, Mr. Yokom ex- tlained. Practically all of the remaking 9 are being delayed because they annot be carried on through the winter, he said. City Asked for More. The 28 projects provide for fed- ral expenditure of 3165,680.61, of which $72,581 has been asked or ranted on three conservation commission projects. The applications filed by the county provide for a county expenditure of $11,305.58, while those of ie city will make necessary municipal expenditure of $25,043. It was the contention of Mr. Yokom that had the .county kept pace with the city of Mason City on plications there would be no question about sufficient projects. They Preferred PWA. It is the policy of the WPA not to release all projects at once, but to have them flow in at a rate to furnish continuity in employment. If ail projects were pushed through at once their completion would again put workers back on relief when they were completed, he said. "For this reason we asked all counties to be sure and file applications for more projects that they thought they would need," he declared. "Cerro Gordo county supervisors, however, expressed preference for PWA projects and refused to apply for more projects. "On Aug. 29 we asked the county supervisors to file applications for more projects and were told by Supervisor Sondergaard they didn't want any." Which One Now? The supervisors, however, wanted to know why releases were not being made on the applications they already had filed. "Here are your projects," said Mr. Yokm, producing a list of the 27 projects. "Which one of these others can you do now?" "We asked for seven men to clean and paint this courthouse," answered Supervisor Sondergaard. "Why hasn't that been granted?" "You asked for seven painters, skilled workers, and they have not been available." said Mr. Yokom. "You change that to seven men and we can grant it." "We want to know why Webster county has 800 men at work and this county isn't getting any attention," Mr. Sondergaard argued. "I think the reason is that Webster county didn't reduce its relief rolls like we did last spring." %Vent After It. "The difference between Webster county and Cerro Gordo county is that Webster county knew what it wanted and went after it," Mr. Yokom answered. "There are 101 projects you could have asked for. What I want to know is why you haven't asked for them? You were told on three different occasions to file applications for WPA projects because you were going to need them." The local supervisors stated they had some difficulty on applications they filed at the Waterloo office. Projects Arc Suggested.

Frank Hite of Marengo today obtained nomination papers from the secretary of State for nomination for state senator in the June primaries. Gordo county where a showing could be made that more work was needed to take men off relief rolls. Such projects as a countywide farm to market road job, repairs and painting of bridges and culvert work were being carried on in other counties with marked success. In Mitchell county six crews were being employed on one of the countywide projects, he said. A farm to market development, however, was not feasible for Cerro Gordo county for the reason that most of the county road system is completed and furthermore is being carried on under PWA projects, it was pointed out. Mr. Yokum suggested that a WPA rod; crushing project could be carried on and credit taken on the PWA job. The supervisors stated that if more applications were what was required they would be glad to file them. i Y, M. C, A, GOSPEL TEAM IS BUSY 10 More Programs in Nearby Towns Are Scheduled by Young Men.

Funeral services for John Howard McEwen, SO, who served for nearly 34 years as city clerk, were held Tuesday afternoon at'the Congregational chudch, with the Rev. Alexander S. Carlson, pastor, and Dr. William L. Dibble, former pastor, in charge. Mr. McEvvcn died suddenly Sunday morning at a local hospital following a short illness. A quartet composed of Dr. R. F. Kunz, Earl Dean, Floyd Fraser and W. Earl Hall sang "Jesus Lover of My Soul" and "Rock of Ages." Mrs. Earl Ehlers presided at the organ. Dr. Dibble read selections from the scriptures and offered prayer. "Books Well Kept." "One would be blind indeed if he did not see in the record of long public service of Mr. McEwen and in the connection with the church as an institution of which he was an active member, the tendency and quality of his life," said Mr. Carlson. "It has been my privilege to see the specimens of his handwriting and to read the record that he himself prepared of his own life. It is a marvelously artistic writing. And the books he kept were all kept with equally painstaking and exquisite craftsmanship. "In his passing the city has lost a living link with its past and he has'set a standard that will test the best of all who come after him. We have been Messed by the impact of his influence and the city is the poorer by his going. We know that there has been among us a gentle spirit whose fidelity and integrity to domestic and public trust reveal the soundness of the man himself. He has set a noble example of Christian citizenship, discharging the duties of his office with distinction, and surrounding himself with a large host of staunch friends who were attracted by his friendliness and who were held by his uprightness and his unblemished character. "Tribute to Life." "Our presence here this afternoon is our tribute to a life whose memory will always be fragant among us. Although I did not know him as intimately as you, I bear witness to a sense of personal loss, for Mr. McEwen bad always been very friendly to me, and I felt that he was a conscientious seeker after truth, who would brook no fooling, and who would follow anywhere the truth might lead. He was a regular attendant upon the services of the church to which he belonged, and deeply interested in the success of its program in the community. "His life speaks for itself. Practically half of his life was spent in public service, and his conscientious craftsmanship and high devotion to duty are eloquent testimonials to the inner spirit which thus expressed itself. He needs no words of preacher or friend to plead on his behalf. What he was made its own deep impression and our city and its life have felt the touch of his spirit. "Kept Ways of Jehovah." "I believe that all of us will agree that Mr. McEwen 'kept the ways of Jehovah, and as for His statutes, he did not depart from them.' The long period of public usefulness as city clerk through three different types of municipal government suggests that he embodied the truths that are changeless though life changed 'about him." Pallbearers were Mayor J. J. Burns, W. S. Wilcox, Leo Davey, Herman Knudson, Howard L. Knesel and City Manager Herbert T. Barclay. Burial was at Elmwood c'em- etey. LUELlAlPROST SERVICES HELD Friendliness of Teacher Is Lauded in Funeral Sermon. Funeral services for Luella May Frost,. 59. who died at her home, 1612 North Federal avenue, Saturday morning following an illness of Six months, were held at the Congregational church Tuesday afternoon, with the Rev. Alexander 3. Carlson in charge. I Mrs. W. L. Bennett and Earl Dean 1 sang "The Old Rugged Cross" and "He Leadeth Me." They were accompanied by Mrs. Earl Ehlers. "In all the parables that Jesus taught about 'Preparedness' he urges us to be ready to meet our friends," said Mr. Carlson. "He is not nearly so concerned about our preparedness to meet our enemies as our readiness to meet our friends. "Ready To Be Friends." "It seems to me that Mrs. Frost was ready to be friends with people, and those who knew her well will agree that she called out friendliness in others. 'In one of my visits to her, Mrs. Frost remarked, in language fitting to the profession to which she had given so much of her life: 'I am like a teacher in school, with my reports all filled out. I don't know the date of school's closing, but whenever it takes place. I'll be glad to see my great superintendent.' That was the spirit which shone i through all her weeks of patient waiting and stoic endurance of suffering. "Blessed by Spirit." "Not many folk throughout the state of Iowa knew Mrs. Frost, but those who passed under her instruction will no doubt agree with me that they were blessed by the benediction of a calm and sympathetic spirit." Palbearers were W. A. WestftJl, Earl Ehlers, J. H. Hardy, Francis DeSart, Douglas Swale and Lee Bailey. Burial was at Memorial Park cemetery. 3 ACT DRAMA IS GIVEN BY CHURCH "Mary's Millions" Presented at Monroe School by Y. M. F. C. Class. The three act play, "Mary's Millions," was presented Tuesday evening in the Monroe school auditorium under the sponsorship of the Y. M F. C. class of the Church of Christ. The play was coached by Bee Lynch. An appreciative audience responded well to the many comical situations brought about by the .efforts of a scheming pair of fortune hunters masquerading as a count and countess to swindle a young girl, Mary Manners, out of her inheritance. Fine performances were given by Rheon Zack and Charles Crumb as the count and countess, and Mable Joy Prusia in the role of the heiress. Larry Reardon played opposite Miss Prusia in the role of Jack Henderson, a young civil engineer. Commendable characterizations were given by Lulu Mae Hicks as Betty Barlow, Mary's friend, and Neil Garrison as Jimmy Barnes who became considerably confused in keeping his love affairs and business matters straight. Comedy roles were played by Hazel Allstot as Eudora, the hired girl; Virgil Hicks as Abija Boggs, the village constable, Waldo Peterson as -Ezra Stoneham, Mary's uncle, and Vernile Seidel as Amanda Mudge who looked to the spirit world for guidance. Dena Peterson was cast as Mrs. Ezra Stoneham. a social climber who stopped at nothing in her efforts to have nobility in the family. The Rocky Hollow village choir opened act 2 with its rendition of the welcome song to the strawberry festival. The "gay 90's" costumes were responsible for many laughs from the audience. Music during the evening wag supplied by the Roosevelt school orchestra, accompanied by Mrs. Harry Farrer. Mrs. Fred Wregtiitt Services to Be Held Thursday Afternoon Funeral services for Mrs. Fred Wreghitt, Swaledale, who died at a tfason City hospital Tuesday morning, will be held Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the farm home near Swaledale and at the First M.
