Riner, pastor of the Methodist church, presented a discourse on "Lincoln, the Human Being," before the Lions club Wednesday noon and the Rotary club Thursday noon in observance of the birthday of this great man. "At the head of every great epoch stands a great man," he said. "Greece had Alexander the Great, Rome her Pompeii, Germany her Frederick the Great, France her Napoleon, England her Wallington, but for different reasons, America has her Lincoln. "Every great man is a mystery. Abraham Lincoln stands in history today asa silent mystery, so simple, humble, human, yet 50 divine, sublime ana mysterious. He belongs to the world. Great in Power.. "In various stages of history we meet many men who have been great in intellect, poetic genius, military power and political glory, but far too often the great are not great as human beings. Hannibal, Alexander the Great. Napoleon,. David Hume, Lord Byron, were all great men, great with the pen and with the sword, but unattractive as human beings, lacking something that endeared them to the hearts of men. "But there is another class of men through whose greatness there streams . humanity, similar to sunshine flowing through the atmosphere. "Socrates and Dante and Michael Angelo achieved greatness but along with their genius went something greater, the appeal of human being to human being, sympathy, human touch and silent mystery. To this class belongs Abraham Lincoln. Great in political sagacity, in power to say the right thing at the right time, intuitive knowledge of men, in his command of his affections and the confidences of the American people, yet through all these forms pf greatness there , appears something greater, Lincoln the human being. Lincoln standing in the light of his own unique .'career, Lincoln himself the great wonder, the endless-fascination, the silent mystery. Cradled in Woods. "Bom in a log cabin in the back woods on South Fork of Nolan creek, cradled in the wilderness, it has been said, 'God built his home close to the ground so that his soul might dwell in the stars.' 'A wonderful mother was Nancy Hanks Lincoln. When in the grip of malaria contracted while nursing, an aunt and uncle she said to her husband, 'Abe may not sing as I can, but it may be that he will make others sing.' Calling Abg she said, 'Be something.'. And she had said, 'I would rather my son would be able to read the Bible than own a farm, if he could have but one.' when she passed away leaving Lincoln a lad of nine. No wonder he "said. 'All I am or hope to be I owe to my sainted mother.' "Educated, yes but with short school terms. He mastered Easops Fables, Shakespeare, Life of Washington and Pilgrim's Progress. A hunger for knowledge, a consecrated intelligence made him a truly educated man. Used Tact. "As a human being- he was successful. This phase of his life is well illustrated when we consider his statesmanship. He had a true political sagacity. But this sagacity grew out of his character as a hu- nan being. Two of his great say- ngs will suffice to show this truth. Je said he believed a majority of the people were honest, a fact which grew out of his own honesty. 'You can fool all the people some of the time, some of the people all the time, but not all the people all the time.' was a great fact serving as a breakwater inside of whicli he anchored the truth of his statesm; · ship. Another occasion when the Dred Scott decision of 1857 seemed to give slavery a great boost and under the guise of democracy make an otherwise viscious practice look legal and fine, Lincoln made just one statement that struck fire, You cannot repeal human nature.' He became the champion of the masses and finally won out. "His simple and direct style also tells the story of his character as a human (being. His speeches were classics of simplicity and economy of words, direct and swift as arrows. "He saw a little comedy in the midst of tragedy, seeing the little things as small things and the big ones in the just proportion. From the white house in the dargest days came beams of light and cheer." Post office Copes With Heavy Mail Rock Island Stop Delays Delivery to Mason City. Although the volume of mail handled at the Mason City postof- fice has been heavy since early Tuesday when the first trains came through after the blizzard, postal officials here stated Thursday that it had been unnecessary to employ any of the substitute carriers 01 clerks. Work has proceeded along the usual routine except for the dispatching of a truck to Manly Wednesday afternoon to get a quantity of mail destined for Mason City which would otherwise have been routed through Nora Springs Junction and would not have reached Mason City until late Wednesday night. Mail from Des Moines which under normal conditions would have been delivered during the day Thursday would not be delivered until Friday, postal authorities said, due to the fact that Rock Island trains No. 17 and No. 59 were not scheduled to arrive here until 3 o'clock Thursday afternoon, several hours late. KIWANIANS GIVE PARTY TO WIVES Combination of Sentiment and Humor Presented in Program. Sentiment and humor were com bined in a program presented at the Valentine party of the Kiwanis club for the Kiwaniqueens Thursday noon in the Wedgefoom of Hotel Hanford. The program was furnished by the Kiwaniqueens. Community singing during lunch was led by Mrs. R. F. Kunz. This was followed by presentation of Valentines to the Kiwaniqueens from the Kiwanians. Apparently some of the Kiwanians were of the opinion that their Valentines would be placed in a sack and distributed promiscuously among the Kiwani- queens. However, each member presented his Valentine--and some of them were of a humorous nature-- io his wife, which resulted in some .aughable situations. Musical Numbers Given. Two musical numbers were presented. These were a clarinet solo, by Bob Servison, accompanied by Barbara Scott and an euphonium solo by Harold Raizes, accompanied by Ruth Buehler. 'Valentines of a sarcastic nature addressed to several of those present were read, with the presentation made by Mrs. Herbert Barclay. Mrs. Axel Johnson was in .charge of the program and Mrs. Harvey Major introduced the musical numbers. F. M. Humphrey, president of the Kiwanis club, opened and closed the session. Serve on Committee. The Kiwaniqueen committee in charge of the party consisted of Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Major, Mrs. Barclay, Mrs. Scott Smith and Mrs. Russell Currier. Guests were Miss Rosamond Webster and Mr. and Mrs. Hobart Pat' terson. St. Paul Trucker Fined $10, Costs J. A. Phoc, St. Paul truck operator, was fined ?10 .and costs Thursday by Justice of Peace Roe Thompson, on a charge of violation of the state insurance law. Information was filed by A. J. Reisdorf, inspector for the railroad commission. Lutheran Father and Son Banquet Cancelled CLEAR LAKE--The Father and Son banquet planned for Tuesday at the Zion Lutheran church has been cancelled. The. regular meeting of the men's brotherhood will be .eld on that night.. Iowa Mines Strive to Meet Mounting Demands for Coal With dozens of communities short of fuel because of the unprecedented cold spell, Iowa mines are working at top speed in an attempt to prevent suffering. They arc handicapped, however, by the fact that there isn't room in many of the mines for extra crews to work. The upper photo shows workmen rushing freshly mined coal out of a shaft at Scandia. In the picture at the side is a Scandia miner breaking coal loose from the vein. (Iowa Daily Press Photos) ·Mrs. B.

NOT ROOM FOR EXTRA MINERS 2,000 Idle Could Not Be Put to Work Overnight, Says Clarkson. By GEORGE MILLS. (Iowa Daily Press Bureau) DES MOINES--Iowa's 2,000 idle miners could not possibly be thrown nto the breach over night, general- y speaking, to step up coal production during this emergency, according to Phil R. Clarkson, secretary of the state mine inspectors. There just isn't room for them. Clarkson, while not declaring that 'lack of room in the mine rooms" was the only factor which has re-^ lulled in a serious coal shortage in Iowa, declared that lack of pre-season development work by coal operators made it more or less im- jractical to increase most mine working forces. Past Winters Mild. Mild winters in the last several years have made it unnecessary to widely expand development work during the summer months, he pointed out. Thus, when the shortage became acute, operators in many cases were not in position to expand production and to add miners to their forces. Development- work consists of driving new mine entries off which rooms may be developed. Most Iowa mines are worked by 'rooms" off the main tunnel, he explained. Each room is worked out by two miners, and it is impractical to attempt to work more than two men in one room, he said. Clarkson did say that use. of double shifts on work at the mine entries would help materially in boosting coal production. Many operators are working two shifts at the entries now,' thus increasing- the amount of coal which can be taken from the mines, he said. Dig More in Day. He explained this by pointing out that many miners often dig a lot more coal in a day then the entry force and equipment of a mine can handle in a single shift. Meanwhile, Hugh W. Liindy t( Albia. secretary of the Iowa Coal Institute, today declared that none of the larger Iowa mines are raisins their prices on Iowa coal. He said demands upon Iowa mines are up 300 per cent from normal and that the severe cold has taxed all the coal mines in the United States to peak production. He added that operators are not discriminating in filling orders but are trying to take Not Royal But It's High You are wrong, gentle reader, If you think this is a photo of the Royal Gorge.

DES MOINES, (/T)--The state conservation commission said it lias spent approximately $18,000 in the last six weeks to save Iowa game birds from the perils of the severe winter. The field force of 70 men, assisted by volunteer helpers, has built thousands of shelters and feeding stations and has been distributing 80,000 pounds of bird food purchased by the commission and other larg-e quantities donated by sportsmen's groups and others. The commission said 40 CCC camps have been carrying on similar work. Minnesota Man Asks Information About a Mrs, Mahala Copeman A man signing his name as James L.
