I MASON CITY MAN RECEIVES PATENT 1. Skuttle Invents Improvement for Humidifier. A patent on an automatic pipe L*sounecter used in connection with i'an automatic humidifier was grant' ed to John L. Skuttle, 625 First street southeast, at Washington this . week. The application has been on ' file since 1927 and the patent was awarded on one claim. Mr. Skuttle, who has lived in Mason City for the past 23 years, received a patent on his humidifier in 1914. It is handled by the J. L. Skuttle company of Dowagiac, Mich. Mr. Skuttle has a patent pending on a steam and hot water humidifier. Three other devices, one of them a novelty, are receiving Mr. Skut- tle's attention this winter and he expects to have patents on them soon. "I've been busy for years getting my humidifier accepted, and I now that it has a good market, I j want to get busy on some other in- i ventions and perfect them," he said | Examination for Coast i Guard School Will Be · Held Next June 17- 19 A competitive examination for appointment of cadet to the Coast Guard academy.

Cota, recently electej president of the Mason City Trades and Labor assembly, has been a motion picture operator in Mason City ever since 1906 when he becamo operator for the old Bijou theater, 'a two story building on the east aide of South Federal avenue, then Main street, between First and Second streets. He started work there only a few months after the opening of moving pictures in the city. Mr. Cota, who is now an operator at the Palace theater, has been associated with J. -M. Hettner, manager of the Palace, for the past 23 years. Mr. Heffner was owner and manager of the old Bijou when Mr. Cota started work. The projection room in 1906 consisted of a railing around a platform. During the early days of pictures, the city sometimes boaste.l as many as six theaters, he said The admission was then 10 cents.

We've paved a thousand miles or . more, Of highways in our native state: And joyously on every hand, The gladsome news we do relate.

COTA Photo by Kirk look both ways to see if anyone was watching before they sneaked .into ,the show, Mr. Cota recalled. TlTen three reels consisting of 3,000 feet of flim was considered a long show. Now the average feature picture, not including the news and special acts, consists of 8,000 or 12,000 feet of film. , "What is a list of the best pictures I've shown? That's a pretty hard question to answer. You can't please everyone with every picture. Whether or not a show is good is only a matter of opinion. Some pictures are wonderful but if I said they were someone would disagree." The advent of talking pictures is the supreme improvement in ths tremendous advance o f - t h e motion picture business, in Mr. Cola's opinion. The talkies have brot with them an improvement in technique and pictures are now far superior to what they were a few years agu, he said. Things Go Wrong. "Any one of a thousand things may have happened when something goes. wrong i with - a., talking picture. The worst thing an audience can do is to start clapping' its hands when something isn't working right. Few persona realize how much the two men in the booth have to handle." Mr. Cota holds union cards in both the carpenters union and the operators union. However, he never holds more than one job at a time because he says he thinks it would not be fair. "If I have one job with which I can make a living- it isn't fair for me to take another job which would enable someone else to make a living," he said. "Labor in general is looking forward to a bigger and betler'year," he declared. "If wages can be kept up they will be." Mr. Cota has been a member of the operators union since its organization here in 1916. Tales of going on rabbit hunts in what is now College addition are told by Mr Cota who was born here and has spent the 40 years of his life here. He has lived all 40 years on Seventh street southeast, althu not in the same house. Mr. Cota waa married to Miss Marie E. Hinker in June, 1911. She was from near Festina and lived near St. Anthony's chapel, said to be the smallest church in the world. Their son Paul, .a, high _RQhool .student, is relief operator at the PalaS for his father. Three other children, Eugene, Marie and Louis are students at St. Joseph's school. Iowa is proud of its surfaced roads and justly BO. It Is good to get out of the mud and be able to travel in all sorts of weather. But the transportation fompanlees are rapidly crowding us off our own roads to such an extent they are now a menace to safe travel for pleasure cars. We do not build pipe lines for oui gas companies or office buildings for our banks or business men. Nor do we build streetcar tracks or pole lines for our public service companies. But we do build a few thousand miles of pavement for our own use and then permit the transportation lines to crowd us off our own highways. And also to wear them out. One trip of a loaded four or five ton truck will probably do our roads more harm. than 10,000 trips of a pleasure car. ONE CAN'T BELIEVE AH. ONE READS T. Pipe: I have just consulted one of tho best looking and best gotten up almanacs that I have seen for years, "The Farmer's Almanac for 1931." However, there is something wrong . somewhere; because the weather predictions for January are 1-3, stormy; 4-6, warmer; 7-11, clear; 12-15, rainy; 16-20, storm wave; 21-24, unsettled; 29-31, snow. And it is no better in February, 1-3, stormy; 4-7, clear. The eclipses may be all right and the sun may rise on time. I am not so much interested In the time the sun rises but I do want to know what sort of weather we are going to have after he gets up. --P. K. Scanning" New BOOKS Mark Sullivan's Third Volume On "Our Times"- Here character who present satisfactory certificates that they have completed the equivalent of a four yea»' high school course and have received 14 credits in subjects prescribed by Coast Guard headquarters are required to take a written examination in mathematics, English and history. A high school graduate should be able to pass tho examination, according- to officers The examination is strictly com petitive and is open to young men who possess the qualifications wiln respect to age, education and character. Examinations will be held at such places thruout the Uniteo States where it is found practicable to have examining boards, and the number of candidates warrant. The successful candidates who are tendered appointments will be v required to report to the superintendent of the Coast Guard academy Jon or about August 15, 1031. They i will be allowed 5 cents a mile to I cover travel expenses from the placi of appointment to New London Upon arrival at the academy n cadet will be required to deposit thn sum of $200 to be applied to fne purchase of necessary uniforms and equipment. Pay and allowances received are adequate to cover all expenses while at the academy. Upon graduation, after completing the prescribed course at thi? academy, a cadet Is eligible to be commissioned an ensign. Commissioned officers in the coast guard rank with officers in the army navy and marine corps, and receive corresponding pay and allowances, grade for grade. Mark Sullivan has continued his reminiscences of "Our Times," and in his third volume of fascinating history, recently received by the local library, dusts out the attic of pre-war America. ~ And again a people can smile, for the most part, at or with the fading snapshots of their droll exciting youth. He calls the new book, incidentally, "Pre-War America." The span of years Sullivan now brings back is the Rooseveltian pel- tod. He begins with the portentous friendship of the dynamic Roosevelt find the imperturbable Taft, and the political consequences. A biological flash in the pan wap Tames Hazen Hyde, the Frenchified dandy and dilettante, who let the wolves of Wall street play with his Equitable society patrimony. The result waa the insurance scandals out of which emerged Charles Evans Hughes. Roosevelt's scrapes and the Bellamy Storer sensation, a comedy of errors over a wife's interference in diplomacy; the upgrowth of "exposure" magazines; Roosevelt's rebuke of the "nature fakers," his faddish simplified spelling; the financial affairs of giants like E. H. Harriman and J. P. Morgan; Dr. Stiles' hookworm, or "germ of laziness," discovery--such are Sullivan's materials. Scandals and manners, politics and fashions, the theater, sports popular songs and books again are his subjects. "IIOHJBITION' IS DISCUSSED Prohibition is probably'the most explosive subject in America. But if Charles Merz, New York editorial writer, and author of "The Great American Bandwagon," Is dry or wet, he keeps it admirably suppressed in "The Dry Decade.' His book is an unprejudiced, impar tial history of national pronibitio'.i right up to the report of the Wick ersham committee. Merz tries to give both sides 'jf the picture of prohibition. He begins by recounting the building up of Hone-dry sentiment. The drys, ho finds, have always been better organized than the wets. The record of raids and corruption and hijacking, of public disregard of the law, of "indifference in state legislatures," of "congressional neutrality"--the wnole ret ord, in brief--h«s been summarized "At the end of 1930," Merz writes 'five possible alternatives to the existing situation had been proposed." Briefly, these were a larger public compliance with the law, better enforcement, nullification, modification, or repe'al of the law and restoration of the problem to the states. NEXT WAR IS DISCUSSED War Is another problem, and al- tho not a very pressing one just now, Major K. A. Batt, a Swedish army officer, thiiiks something should be done about that, too, lest it creep up on the world. "That Next War" is the title of his prophetic book. He looks upon bolshevlsm and the air weapon BJ two imminent threats to world neace. He believes the next war will be decided in the air, and that ths objectives will be thn destrup.Lion of cities and civilians rather than the defeat of armies. BEN HECHT HAS NEW BOOK Ben Hecht, with gleeful vigor, pounces upon a character in his new novel, "A Jew in Love," and shakes him with an almost fiendish derision. The character Is Jo Boshere (born Abe Nussbaum), "a man of 30--a dark-skinned little Jew with a vul- turous and moody face, a reedy body and a sense of posture." Soshere is an egomaniac book publisher and Hecht, in his first novel in four years, expends his most trenchant sentences in describing Boshere's greedy antics. His character is utterly groteslji v ·md ridiculous, making conquests solely for the satisfaction of n'.s iuper-arrogant ego. .a capricious human insect with delusions of mag nificence. Compared with Hechfs ribald treatment of his victim, Somerset Maugham's suave thrust at a literary personage in his recent "Cakes and Ale" was a love tap.

It surged between the two tree lined banks and under well built bridges. It surged around the bends and thru the rapida. On and on it surged thru fertile valleys and over rolling- hills.

DeadJVIanJSuea_in North Iowa Court I His Attorneys Ask Dismissal on Grounds Lawyers Not Allowed in Heavenly Domain to Defend Him; Objects to Jurisdiction. /"VRDINARILY when a man is dead he's thru--that is as far as his earthly obligations are concerned. But Knute Knuteson Sofjord, former resident of Northwood, who long- ago joined the caravan to the Great Beyond, found out differently. He was sued after he died and the story of the case is one of the strangest in the court annals of North Iowa. If you will take the trouble to rummage thru the ancient court records in the Worth county courthouse at Northwood you will find that back in 189S, or thereabouts, Mr. Sofjord was sued by C. A. Knuteson Morkve, who asked judgment for an amount covering what was apparently a real obligation. Died Before Suit Wus Filed. Now if the search Is transferred to the mortality records at Northwood it will be found that Mr. Sof- jord died a considerable time before the filing of the suit, a fact which serves to explain the "defendant's motion to dismiss," which the records show was subsequently "lied. This motion was one of the strangest documents ever placed in a clerk's office. It was purported to lave come from tho Shade of Knute Knuteson. Sofjord, then supposed to be a resident of "Elysium." The motion asked that the case be dismissed on the grounds of no jurisdiction. It might be well to explain at this point how the suit came to be filed. Mr. Morkve, a resident of Worth county, had a claim against Mr. Sofjord at the time of the latter's death and placr.d the matter in the hands of Ivar Boe, energetic Northwood attorney. Didn't Go Into Probate. Attorney Boe, before his death, achieved an excellent reputation as a lawyer. But in his younger days impulse at times got ahead of legal reasoning in. the handling of affairs for his clients. And the casa he handled for Mr. Morkve was one in which, impulse more or less eclipsed reason. . Instead of filing a claim in probate against the estate of Mr. Sof- jord, Mr. Boe filed a petition for judgment and got service against the defendant by publication in the local newspaper. Lawyers Played Pranks. In those days lawyers were even more given to playing pranks on each other than they are today and a group of Northwood and Mason City attorneys saw here an excellent opportunity for some fun. The result was that the law firm of Lamb and Willing of Northwood, with Mason City attorneys aiding- and abetting prepared and filed a motion in behalf of the dead man, asking that the case be dismissed and that "he be protected in his grave from the persecutions of lawyers and be allowed to rest in peace." Motion Is tjuotcd. Following Is a reproduction of the defendants motion: "C. A. Knuteson Mnrl.-ve vs. "Knute Knutc.Hon Sofjord, Deceased HEALTH MEETING TO BE IN APRIL Dr. C. E.

LAKE LEADS IN HEALTH ACTIVITY All Children in Eight Schools Examined by Physician. Health work in the rural schools of the county is progressing rapidly. Mrs. Pearl Tannar, county superintendent, announces. The first township to make a complete canvass of the health conditions in each school was Lake. Other townships are following the example set for them. The work in Lake township was under the supervision of Mrs E E Studyvin, chairman of the Christmas seal sales in that section of the county. Mrs. Studyvin used the hair of the proceeds of the seal sale that remains in the community for 'he promotion of health in the schools. Every child in the eight schools of the township was examined by a physician, with the result that Mrs Studyvin now has a complete record of each one. In addition to the physical examinations of the children the work in Lake township has also been centered on improving conditions in the schools. Ventilators have been purchased and other equipment added that will aid in making tho schoolrooms healthful. Other townships are also carrying on the same type of work under the supervision of Mrs. Tannar and Mrs. Ambrose Chesehro, Plymouth, county chairman. Discussion of tho heal Hi program is exoected to t n k n nlacc n t the meeting of the county board of education in the superintentJenl'.-) office Monday.
