REMOVAL OF SNOW HAS COST MASON CITY $3,000 SEVERE WEATHER REQUIRING MORE WORK, EQUIPMENT Snow Dumped at Fairgrounds, Lehigh Pond and Local Parks. Snow removal from the city streets has cost approximately 53,000 so far this winter, according to City Manager Herbert T. Barclay Thursday. Additional labor and trucks have been required during the most severe weather and WPA labor has been furnished for the clearing of federal highways, although the city has been required to furnish extra trucks for hauling: the snow these men shoveled. At present the snow removal force consists of the regular street and water departments, consisting of about 35 city employes, four city trucks, two snow plows, a large Austin Maintaincr, two bobsleds hauled by water department horses and eight privately owned tracks rented by the city. Eighty-five men have also been provided by the WJA for work on highways 65 and 18, the only federal highways through the city. City Manager Barclay explained that the reason the streets were cleaned quickly in the busines- districts and not so soon in the outlying districts was because the Austin Maintainer was of use only on the level streets, since the machine extends from curb to curb and is used as a leveler only and not a plow. The si.x wheel maintainer, according to Mr. Barclay, is of little value in bucking; drifts. Also WPA men may be used only on the federal highways, leaving the remainder of the city to be cleaned by the 35 city employes. Snow removed from the streets has been dumped at the fairgrounds, the Lehigh pond, on the low land at East Park and at Commissioners' park, all of which are part of the drainage systems in these areas. Although Mr. Barclay had approximate figures on the cost of the snow removal to this period he was unable to tell how much above the yearly average cost it would be for at least another month, since heavy snows have usually come around March 1. REVIVAL SERVICE TO CLOSE FRIDAY Evangelist Darby Spoke on "Unpardonable Sins," Wednesday Night. The evangelistic services at the Church of Christ led by Dr. John V. Darby will close Friday evening. The sermon Thursday night was to je on "Brands of Christ" and Friday on "Triumphant Certainties." One more service will be held Friday morning- with the topic, "The Touch of Christ." Wednesday Dr. Darby spoke on 'Three Unpardonable Sins." "It is necessary to warn against committing sins that cannot be forgiven," said Dr. Darby. "We quarantine against communicable diseases and put signs of warning over springs of impure water. Peo)le need to be warned against hab- ts of life that bring death to their sprits." Dr. Darby defined as unpardonable the sins of unbelief in Jesus, suicide and sin against the Holy Spirit.

Troubles Are Due to Little Hitlers, She Learns. Germany under Hitler is making definite progress toward stable con ditions, with" very little unemployment and the populace as a whole satisfied with the present trend of affairs. That js what Mrs. Helene Brims 542 Sixth street southeast, said she found on her three months' visit to her native land, from which she has just returned. "Conditions in Germany are much better than they have been for some time," she said. "I found ci- erywhcre a tremendous enthusiasm for Hitler. "I thought I was t 0 get to ?cc him once at Berlin, bnt bad weather delayed us to the extent that by the time we go there the meeting was over. But such crowds of people as there were. t Due to Little Hitlers. "The impression I got was that most of the troubles that have arisen have been because of some of the little Hitlers who are radical. Of course, the government carries on with an iron hand, which seems to be necessary." Mrs. Bruns encountered many inquiries as to how Americans regarded Germany. "I told them that as far a.s I knew it was friendly," she said. "One of the troubles is that the newspapers there seem to print the worst about America and our newspapers print the worst about Germany. The Germany I -found wasn't the one I have been reading about in our newspapers. They, on the other hand, had a wrong impression of the United States." AH land in Use. One of the things that impressed Mrs. Bruns was the manner in which every square foot of land is user). There are no wide unused lanes along railroad tracks and highways in Germany, she said. ' "Patches of ground on the outskirts of the cities are divided up among the people," she added. "Each family hns a little plot, maybe just a few feet in size. On this it has a little hut covered with vines and around it are grown vegetables enough for the family's use through the year. "Flowers were profuse everywhere. AH gardens were formal in character and with the neatly cut boxwood hedges around them they were a sight I'll never forget. She Liked Berlin. T liked Berlin. It was so different from our larger cities. Instead of cutting out the trees on the main business streets like we do they let them grow. Many of the trees were so large they furnished shade for persons up in the second and third floors." Mrs. Bruns visited many of the old historic castles and monuments and was particularly impressed with the monument and the ceremony that was staged each noon in honor of the unknown dead of all nations. For a half hour the guards stood at rigid attention. Wreaths and the flags of all the nations participating in the World war lay in a circle in the center of the building. Found Museums Interesting The Mason City woman also found the museums of Germany interesting. Among her numerous photographs are pictures of statuary and architecture excavated by German expeditions to Palestine and other ancient civilizations. Mrs. Bruns spent a large part of her time in the vicinity of Oldenburg, visiting relatives. Germany's rearmament program is regarded as a good thing by the people bacause it has placed young men who otherwise might have been idle into disciplinary training, she said. First Time in 49 Years. Mrs. Bruns, who had not been back to Germany since she came to the United States 49 years ago as a little girl, made the journey across the Atlantic both ways on the Deutch'and. Just off the coast of England, after having stopped at Cherbourg 1 and Southampton, the boat encountered a terrific gale that caused disaster to a number of boats. That was the beginning of a stormy voyage that lasted almost until they reached New York. Conditions in eastern United States do not look as good as in the middle west, she said. "I saw many idle factories and big empty houses for sale and rent in the eastern cities," she added. "The farther west I came the better things looked, even if everything was covered with snow." MRS. HELENE B K U N S MAYOR'S PROCLAMATION Whereas, Major Bowes, nationally known through his interest in discovering musical talent in amateurs and in thus forwarding musical interests throughout the nation and enabling many talented musicians and entertainers to pursue gainful occupations, has designated Mason City, Iowa, for appearance of his Unit No. 9 on Saturday, Feb. 22 and Sunday, Feb. 23 at the Cecil theater, and Whereas, our citizens generally are musically inclined and our radio listeners almost universally heartily indorse the efforts of Major Bowes in thus developing' talent and launching worthy artists upon earning careers, and Whereas, our citizens will desire to hear these, until recently, amateur but talented artists and entertainers, in order to by their presence encourage arid aid in the great work 50 well started by Major Bnvves, as well as to compliment the major himself and to encourage art. As Mayor of Mason City, Iowa, I therefore proclaim it to be of universal interest that our city is honored this week-end with a Major Bowes Amateur Unit appearance at the Cecil theater and proclaim Us support a worthy cause in the help and encouragement of all ·amateurs. JOHN J. BURNS, Mayor. When the democratic convention meets in Philadelphia, Gov. Eugene Talmadge of Georgia had better look out. If he voices any opposition to the new deal, the convention will use the Liberty Bell on him the way Major Bowes uses the gong on Sunday nights.--Albany Knickerbocker Press.
