Clear Lake Globe - Gazette 'Water' Parks Favorites of '53 Tourists CLEAR LAKE-- "Water Parks," those with rivers and lakes near by, were the most popular throughout Iowa in 1953, the Iowa Conservation Commission revealed in its latest edition. The greatest number of visitors registered at Lake Manawa, Council Bluffs, which attracted 436,773 persons. Next in line was Clear Lake with an attendance o[ 321,635 for the season. Backbone Park had 285,525 and next was Lake Ahquabi, with 231,990. The total for the entire state in 1953 was 4,885,981. The extremely hot, dry summer placed a heavy strain on park facilities, officials stated, and many of them were so inadequate on weekends that park custodians were forced to close the gates and turn people The large- number of fish houses built on Clear Lake, the excellent ice-boating and the popular skating rink with warming house sponsored by the Civic League testify to the extra year-round appeal of "water" parks such as Clear Lake has, conservationists observed.

Mayor Hintzman said he would try to arrange a personal meeting Promotes Loyalty The potentialities of this plan are imitless. Today, it is estimated t h a t there are around 7,000,000 stockholders in America. As this column has so often pointed out, .he productive wealth of the United States should be much more widely distributed. Government savings bonds arc held by more than 70,000,000 different individuals, institutions and societies. One does not hear about ihis often, but it has always seemed to me that possession of Uncle Sam's bonds strengthens the political ties of his citizens to him. An investor with government bonds, bought out of savings, is likely to be a .person ioyal to our system of government and lo our institutions. Free Enterprise In like mariner, getting the best common stocks into the hands of millions of savers should strengthen the faith of those persons in America's free enterprise system. This New York Stock Exchange savings-and-inveslmcnt plan will make owners of corporate business aware of the risks and rewards, the privileges and responsibilities of equity ownership. And that will be all to the good. With 70 million savings bond holders in the country it should not be too difficult, over a period of time, to double the present number of stockholders. The present ratio between bond and stock holders is about 10 to 1. More Stockholders Through the operation of the new stock plan (if it is properly pro moted) this ratio should be cu! with Mrs. J. P. Anderson, presi- down to 5 to 1. That would mean dent, regarding the invitation given in the immediate years ahead jy the city to the Friendly Garden Club to take over the "Plant Iowa" city beautification project requested by Gov. William S. Beardsiey. Mayor Hintzman requested a special session for M a r c h 8 when it is expected council members now on vacation will have re- Lurned. Speaker to Address Charles City Women CHARLES CITY--Mrs. Lloyd M. White, Kansas City, Mo., will appear under the sponsorship of the Charles City Woman's Club, March 15 at the high school. Her topic will be, 'Philosophy Thru' Your flat." Mrs. White was guest speaker at the Rotary Club here last year. All proceeds will be used for Christie. seven million new stockholders. To those savers who are inter ested in the plan, these suggestion. 1 are offered: 1. Select, stocks with long divi clend records. 2. Ask yourself: "Will this stock ;row with America?' 3. Ask also: "Will I be able to carry through any plan of invest mcnt covering the period of m aving? New York Stock Exchange f i r m s throughout Ihe country have the literature that outlines the plan and gives in detail the method of its operation. SWEHLA RITES HELD ALTA VISTA--Funeral services for Mrs. Ed Swchla, 64, were held Friday at St. Bernard's Catholic Church. She died at a hospital in New Hampton Wednesday.
