Like carrying the well known coals to Newcastle the square dance school in connection with the old time dance at the armory Saturday night was for the most part just a review for those who participated in the early evening program. It was sort of a post-graduate class with undeniable evidence that the "students" had been there before The early attendance was com paratively small due to the fac that many had overlooked the fac' that the dancing was to begin promptly at 8 o'clock. However the crowd increased laier and aftci a whole hour of nothing but square 'dancing the opinion was unanimous that the undertaking was a' sue cess. Because of the enthusiastics re quests of the square cancers the old time dance committee of th Region will repeat the early pro gram feature next Saturday night pec. 16. Many expressed the opinioi that there would be twice as man in attendance as the word will b rapidly passed among- the devotee o£ the "square" In Mason City an /surrounding community. Larg delegations are expected from th Manly and Plymouth neighbor hoods. In order that there may be n misunderstanding the committe emphasized the fact that the done ing will begin at S o'clock and con ·tinue until Huck Shaffer's bani takes the platform to play his pro gram of modem ctances, square dances and the popular circle tw ·steps. ' An additional special feature is "being planned for next Saturday night and will be announced later. Are Receiving Balances. OSAQE.

A dolomite rocic chased by the city crumer pur- water department from Muscatine May 31, 1931, has been installed at the Municipal rock quarry at the corner of Carolina avenue and Fourth street northeast, where 75,000 tons of white rock is available for road improvements. As soon as the motor is installed and connected the machine will be ready for operation, according to City Manager E. H. Crofoot Monday. The crusher was purchased to crush dolomite rock and had been used at Muscatine for that purpose. The Muscatine rock had been shipped to southern Michigan and Ohio for use in disposal plants. After the rock at Muscatine had become exhausted the crusher waa purchased by the local water department at a greatly reduced price. It has been estimated there are about 60,000 tons of dolomite rock under the top layers of white rock at the local quarry. The present price of this dolomite rock is ?2 a ton at the quarry. According to City Manager Crofoot, It will be a matter of only a few years until it will be necessary to change the rock in the municipal disposal plant percu- latlng filter. This will require 15,000 tons of rock. Dolomite rock is used for this purpose. It has also been estimated that enough white rock can be crushed from the quarry to be used on the city streets and on improvements to more than pay for tho crusher. Enough rock has already been taken from the quarry to build the only city owned building ever constructed here, the 16 stall garage at the water department. At the present prices, the city will have 530,000 worth of dolomite rock for its disposal plant filters when the top rock has been taken off for street work.
