MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JULY 25 1935 NINE All Homes Need Many Types of F l o w e r Vases By BKRT SCHILLER McDONALD Central Press Flower Stylist Flowers possess definite characteristics, which mark them as formal or informal, reserved pr gay: and every home needs a variety of vases and other flower containers to bring out these qualities. Not only that, but each year manufacturers, in their efforts to keep abreast of the changing fashions in interior decoration, produce new types, ranging- from low shallow bowls to tall vases, in pottery, glass, china and metal. Colored Glass Vases. Seen everywhere in the shops now are the Italian vases made of clear colored glass, supported by little wrought iron stands in ivy leaf design. This type of vase strikes an informal note, and hence calls for informal flowers such as marigolds, larkspurs and other garden blooms. Two such vases--filled with identical flowers, of course--look charming on the mantel. Speaking of twin effects, the new Grecian urns, filled, for instance, with drooping philodendron and graceful Kentia palms, are lovely, when one is placed on either end of the mantel. They lend classica! air to the dignified living room. Of French Design. For the occasional table, a lovely effect can be obtained with one ol the new china containers of French design, shaped like a rather tai: flower pot. Filled with variegated flowers, this ensemble is delicately Dresden in its beauty. The rose is a formal flower, and when massed into a bouquet, -demands a container of richness and quality. The new statuet vases are quite in harmony with the lavish beauty of the rose. These vases, made of clear or delicately colored glass, are fairly deep and will support long stems gracefully. The vase proper is held in a base supported by two graceful figures, finished in any desired metal finish--silver, gold, bronze or chrome. As the base upon which the figures stand is fairly wide and substantially constructed, any appearance of top- heaviness is prevented.

(Russell Photo, Kayenay Engraving. ) Supreme Court to Decide if Cros Is Needed in Square on Ballot. Glenn Roberts, incumbent in the Mason township subdistrict No. 9 school election contest, announced Thursday he was taking his case to the state supreme court. Loser in both the contest court and in the district court, to each of which the case was successively appealed, Mr. Roberts maintained the public has a right to know whether or not a cross is required on a school election ballot. Affirmed Contest Court. Judge M. H. Kepler affirmed the contest court opinion holding that John Thompson, contestant, was declared elected director from subdis- trict No. 9 by a vote of 22 to 21. Three of the votes for Mr. Thomson, did not have the cross in the square opposite the place where his name was written in. Upon these three ballots the outcome of the case hinges. It is the contention of Garfield Breese, attorney for Mr. Roberts, who has served notice of appeal and filed a $500 bond that the present law requires all elections be conducted on a similar basis and that t is necessary to put a cross in the square opposite the name of the candidate. Judge Kepler, however, held this was not necessary in sub-district elections. Contends Change Made. Mr. Breese contends this old law no longer holds. He points out that originally the general election laws ommitted school elections from their ·equipments. In 1913, he maintains :he legislature applied the general election laws to ?chool elections in cities and towns, in 1925 to consolidated schools and in 1929 passed a aw that, except as otherwise provided, the general election laws shall apply to all school elections. The only question is whether it is otherwise provided. It was the contention of W. L. Bliss, who represented Mr. Thompson at the previous hearings, there s a separate statute ori school elec- :ions which states printed ballots are not needed. Memorial Concert Is Given; Tribute by Bagley Paid to Veteran Player. A concert, typical of hundreds .hat W. J.

He mentioned the :ine artistic feeling of the veteran bandman and the high regard in which he was held, both as a musician and for his companionship, Mr Hapgood's talent had served as the nspiration for youth of this community, he continued, and had contributed to making Mason City an outstanding musical town The band played "The Holy City" jy Adams, one of Mr. Hapgood'? favorite solos, Carleton L. Stewart played the solo. Following a minute of silence, the audience and players 'acing east, taps were sounded by Sob Bagley. The oveture on the program was : 'Poet and Peasant" by Suppe, the musicians following Assistant Conductor C. J. Andrews for an unusually effective interpretation.
