Among the prominent members of the Loyal Order of Moose who will attend the state convention in Mason City, Aug. 3 and 4 are Judge J. Willis Pierson, past supreme dictator, and Paul P. Schmitz, director of the international membership enrollment department. Judge Pierson is a native of Texas. He began his public career at 23 years, when he was elected states ittomey for Rains county, Texas. Later he became judge of the probate court, and finally judge of the criminal court of Dallas. In this capacity he had ample opportunity for the study of the criminal against society, whose background almost invariably was shown to be that of a neglected, possibly parentless child, left to fend for himself at an early age.

AT THE HOSPITALS Miss Anita Skene, Indianhead farm, was dismissed from the Mercy hospital Wednesday following a minor operation. Mrs. Bernard Davis, 225 Third northeast, was admitted to ent children attracted Judge Pierson, and in 1911 he joined the order. Bringing the enthusiasm which char- _ acterized him in his profession, he' was shortly elected to the supreme council. In 1920 he became supreme prelate, supreme vice dictator in 1921--and the following year was appointed supreme dictator. While in this--the highest elective office in the Loyal Order of Moose--Judge Pierson reached a standard that has seldom been achieved. As supreme dictator he was constantly on the road and his success as a speaker is a matter of history. Wherever he was booked to appear, his reputation as an orator brought out vast crowds. Few men of his generation can carry an audience to such heights of enthusiasm as can this great emotional speaker. No man in the Moose fraternity can excel him in presenting the gospel of the Moose. This was firmly established by the greatly increased membership in the lodges during Judge Pierson's terra of office. At the conclusion of his active ,, term of office, his ability as a speaker was further recognized by a general demand that he devote his entire time to spreading the gospel of the Moose. Judge Pierson is well known PAUL P. SCHMITZ International Enrollment. among the Moose in Mason City, having been here .on several occasions. In a communication to a committee member he stated he always coming to Mason City anc Mrs. Theodore Rasmussen, 16 Seventeenth street northwest, was admitted to the Park iospital Wednesday for treatment.

Richard Mack, Clear Lake, was . dismissed from the Park hospital Wednesday following a minor operation. Mrs. William Buck, 7 Monroe avenue northwest, was dismissed from the Park hospital Wednesday following treatment. Handled Speakers Bureau. Immediately after college, Mr. Schroitz entered the organization department of the Loyal Order of Moose, and because of his exceptional personality and ability on the platform, he was appointed director of the speakers' bureau of the Moose. Further advancement followed. In 1926, Supreme Secretary Malcolm R. Giles appointed him deputy supreme secretary, and In 1929 he became chief deputy. In August, 1930, the supreme council appointed him secretary of the Moose charity board, a position from which he has been relieved since his appointment as director of the international membership enrollment department. In his capacity as chief deputy, while supervising under the office of the supreme secretary, the seventeen hundred and more lodges, his special supervision included the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. Naturally, he has been relieved of such supervision since taking his new position as director. Harpster Vice Chairman of Association Committee M. A. Harpster has been selected as vice chairman of the overhead systems committee of the Missouri Valley Electrical association, which is made up of electrical utilities in Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska.

CAB ON FIKE Firemen extinguished a blaze in the car of Charles Engils, Rockwell, at the intersection of State street and Federal avenue shortly after 9 o'clock Wednesday evening. The fire started from a short in the ignition ST. JOHN, FIRST SHERIFFS' HEAD, SEES TRANSITION Riceville Man Knew Frank James, Cole Younger in Early Period. Take the word from one who has seen it all--"sheriffing" is nothing like it was in the old days. R. T. St. John, 89, Riceville, first president of the Iowa Sheriffs' association, will vouch for that statement. Mr. St. John, who reads without the aid of spectacles despite his advanced age, was a peace officer in Iowa during the wild days when Iowa was being settled--taking the oath of office first in 1880. It was horse thieves and cattle rustler's who were the lawbreakers of those days--not the bank robbers and kidnapers with their high- powered cars and airplanes of 1930. The Riceville Civil war veteran has seen all of this transition in which crime has been magnified to an industry of tremendous proportions in the United States. Meets Western Outlaws. During the nine years he was sheriff of Mitchell county, Mr. St. John came into contact with several of the outlaws whose names still live in the bloody annals of the wild west. When he went to the state penitentiary at Missouri with a prisoner the Riceville man met and had a lengthy conversation with Frank James, brother of Jesse James and a member of the most notorious band of fugitives ever to roam America. James later was released from prison and went on tour with PROPOSES PLANS FOR ELIMINATING AUTO CONGESTION Angle Parking and Means o Increasing Flow of Cars on Federal Considered. Two specific recommendations on the handling of traffic in Mason City will be made to the city coun cil and police department by thi newly selected safety commission as result of a preliminary study Wed nesday afternoon of the traffic sur vey made by Earl L. Allgaier o: Iowa State college at Ames. The first of these recommenda tions has to do with the elimination of some of the automobile congestion in the blocks south of the stop sign on - Second street and South Federal avenue. The commission wil recommend the suggestion made by Mr. Allgaier that no cars be allowed to park for a distance of 150 feet from Second street south on the east side of Federal avenue. t Proposes Two Lanes. This ISO feet would then be marked into two lanes on the east side, with the provision that the one next to the curb on the east side be used only for cars making a right turn. This, it is believed, would take care of the congestion that results because of three solid blocks without cross streets on South Federal avenue. Because the cross traffic is small at Second street on South Federal avenue, the possibility of eliminating the stop light sign was considered by Mr. Allgaier in his report. The second recommendation has to do with angle parking, for which a number of specific streets were suggested by Mr. Allgaier. The committee as a whole did not agree on the practicability of all these, but suggested that the police department proceed to experiment with angle parking in one or two locations while a sub-committee made further study of the problem to report back to the general commis- In Greek-American Association Above are the women members of the recently organized Mason City lodge of the Greek-American Progressive association.

On Sub-Committee. This sub-committee is made up of George O'Neil, C. H. Lennan, E. J. McCann, Leo Davey, member of the city council, and E. J. Patton, chief of police, ex-officio member. Meanwhile all members of the commission are studying other sections of the 22 page report prepared by Mr. Allgaier in order to present further recommendations to the police- department at an early the commission date.

Barber, corresponding .secretary. Birthday Is Observed. ROCK FALLS--Mr. and Mrs. Oswald Bailey entertained a number of friends at a card party in observance of Mr. Bailey's birthday. a carnival Company, Mr. St. John recalls. Sees Cole Younger. Going to the Minnesota state penitentiary at Stillwater, Minn., St. John again met one of America's most infamous outlaws of that or any other period--Cole Younger. Cole was the leader of an outlaw ring which combined with Jesse James' gang in a northern excursion in which the James-Younger outfit robbed the bank at Northfield, Minn. It was the only time James' gang had invaded the north, and the indignant farmers peppered away from the roadside at the hard riding and shooting robbers, killin? two. Younger was taken prisoner and died in the penitentiary. Mr. St. John's sou, E. R. St. John, is cashier of the First National bank at Riceville, and says longevity is apparently hereditary in the family. The former sheriff's grandfather lived to the age of 105, his grandfather to 101 and his father died while in the nineties. Orlando Lippert, field represen- ative for Paramount Newsreel service in this territory, finished ome work in Milwaukee early Tuesday and returned to his Chiago headquarters only to find a elegram directing him to hie him- elf to Mason City to get pictures vith sound effects of the excite- lent and rioting attendant upon he closing of the Cerro Gordo ounty relief agency and the refusal f aid to men on relief who would ot work in the harvest fields. Arriving- here and learning that the agency is not yet closed, although the number of relief cases has diminished to a small figure, Mr. Lippert's face reflected patient long-suffering, and he added Mason City to the list of locations to which he has sped in search of news which was sensational only in the minds of his New York superiors. However, he contacted County Agent Marion E. Olson and A. M. Schanke, county relief administrator and set out to take several shots of the transient camp north of town, so Mason City may have a spot in the Paramount newsreel some time soon. Mr. Lippert covered the farmers' riots during the strike at Le Mars a few years ago when a judge was abducted. His pictures of that incident were described as very unsatisfactory at the New York offices and he was reprimanded for failing-to get pictures of huge mobs milling about in bloody hand to hand combat. Explanations that the pictures showed every mob anc every bit of fighting and violence failed to make the easterners realize their misconception. 30 Employes Attend Rail Express Meeting Thirty employes of the Railwav Express Agency attended a 6:30 o'clock dinner at the Cerro Gordo hotel Wednesday evening where talk was given by Carl M. Gustafson, Chicago, traveling commercial agent of the company. Mr. Gustafson spoke of the increase which was becoming evident in all lines of business. Employes of the company were here from Hampton, Charles City, Iowa Falls and Mason City. C C. Halphide, local agent, was in charge.

Oscar Earhart, representative of the International union of brick and clay workers, with headquarters in Chicago, arrived in Mason City Wednesday and will address a meeting of the local brick and clay ·workers at Labor hall Thursday night. Mr. Earhart, who was in Mason City a year ago in the interests of the local union, is here for the purpose of reviving the organization work started at that time. In conversation with C. W. Jickox, president of the Trades and jabor assembly, Mr. Earhart said .hat brick and clay workers are organizing all over the country and that the services of international representatives were being taxed to the utmost. "Mason City brick and lay workers have the nucleus of a good strong organization, and as oon as the employes of the local ilant become union-minded, I pre- [ict one of the strongest unions in he industry for Mason City," he tated. MONTAGUE, ONCE MASON CITY BOY, IS GIVEN TRIBUTE Prominent Lawyer Who Died in Portland, Ore., Active in His Community. "That men owe to their community everything that distinguishes civilized from savage life and that this debt should be repaid by thought and labor in the common welfare was one of the ruling principles of the life of Richard Ward Montague," said one of the Portland, Ore., dailies in an item on the death of a former Mason City resident who rose to prominence in the legal profession on the west coast. Mr. Montague, who was the son of one of the founders of the First National bank and the brother of Jimmy Montague, the poet and feature writer, died at his home on July 17. Wanted Improvement. "In politics he was a progressive democrat and was always a supporter of movements which had in view the improvement of social and political conditions," this newspaper continues. "In municipal reform his chief service was in the drafting of city charters for Portland. From 1901 to 1903 he was on the city charter committee and he also served on the committees of 1909, 1911 and 1913 which formulated the present com-" mission form of government. "He was elected president of the Oregon Bar association in 1908 in which year the University of Oregon conferred upon him the honorary degree of master of arts in public "ervice." Active in Politics. It also was pointed out that Mr. VTontague was active in leadership m a number of other civic and community affairs. He was active in state politics and one year served as chairman of the state central committee. As a lawyer he was a strong advocate of the English judicial system.
