. 27, 1954 M»IOB City GUbe-Gnett*, M*I»B Cily, H. Which Woy the Wind Blows , Mason City, should extend a special welcome to^ the Loy Reynolds family^ recent arrivals from Eureka Springs, 'Ark. , .'Along; with ,a clipping from the Eureka Sprinks Times Echo on the departure of the Reynolds family, Mrs^, Loy Hess, wife ot the town druggest, sent' the following information about 'Doug, 4 year old Reynolds boy. A few days before their departure,' 'Doug, while playing with a small'-cousin, "was accused of being ; : a naughty boy and was told that if he wasn't good, he wouldn't go to Heaven. ' ; : "Quick' as a flash Doug came back with the bright remark: "I don't care, I am going to Mason I City, Iowa." The Loy Reynolds family lives at 525 Carolina S. E. Mr. Reynolds is a meat cutter at a super market. * C. L. Adams of the Kanawha Reporter writes: Not only is it true that a sucker is born every minute--he is constantly making every effort to prove it. : · * Mild Winter Plymouth's L. L. Button contributes -this oddity from the Muscatine Journal. The front page dateline for Feb. 19 actually read March 19. Button's comment was this: Bid-Happy Dog Auctioneer Jerry "\Vohler had trouble with a large, non-descripl dog last Tuesday at the George Grotty sale six miles northeast of Mason City. The dog was an un- usuarahimal. He put in a bid on a decrepit manure spreader. It happened this way: Jerry, the auctioneer, standing close to the spreader, felt a. slight nudge when the bidding got up to six dollars. A man well back in the crowd bid seven. The auctioneer felt the nudge again and the bid went up to eight. The man bid again and Jerry turned to see what had happened to the bidder behind him. All he found was the dog, which had been mizzling Jerry's coat. "I have known for many years that my grandfather could 'have spent many mild winters in Iowa if he had settled closer to the southern border in the 1850's. But 1 didn't . ; realize just how much ahead of this locality they are until I picked up a copy of tlie Muscatine newspaper. Possibly Groundhog Day was cloudy there; perhaps the compositor was worrying about the deadline for tax filing; maybe he ; is still confused about Roosevelt's juggling of Thanksgiving Day." "We challenge any town in this area and any town anywhere, on a per capiVa basis, to match " Nashua's record in gaining new places of business," wrote Editor Tom Conklin of the Nashua Reporter this week. In the past three months the Donut Shop, the Nib and Nibble cafe, the Paul Schrader plumbing and heating shop and the Radio and Televison Sales Service Store have opened in Nashua. These, said the editor enthusiastically, ar* but a start in the development of Nashua's shopping area potential. ' . " · - , . ' * Mason City Authors Immediately after World War I there grew up a school of writers such as Edgar Lee Masters, Sherwood Anderson and Sinclair Lewis, who took delight in emphasizing the drabness and boredom of the small town. In the February issue of The Palimpsest, Prof. John T. Frederick points to Mason City's Herbert Quick as the antithesis of this and quotes that author's "One Man's Life" to show how Quick rebuked the practice of "a school of writers.who have set themselves to the analysis and description of country, village and town communities with the purpose of displaying 'their sordid drabness, their utter poverty of inspiration, their lack of men and women above the plane of two legged horses and cal- tle." · Quick had also added this meaningful paragraph: "I have spent a good deal of my life in such communities and I have never failed from time to time and at important crises of my life to make contact with the souls who led me outward and upward." Among the authors discussed by Frederick in this magazine, which is devoted . entirely to "Town and . City in Iowa .Fiction," were Ma son City's Hartzell Spence and Martin Yoseloff. Frederick, who has been profes sor, editor, writer and book re viewer for more than 30 years now lives on a farm at Glcnnie Mich., teaching part time at .Notre Dame. world," he wrote, "is the common everyday chap who makes his own living, pays his bills, has a little money as he goes along, but doesn' Strive fo get a corner on the loca. output, and is a slave neither to ambition nor society. "He loves his God and his fellow man; thinks 'there is no place like ionic,' tlie haven of rest; prefer the company of his family to that of anyone else; never has to sit up nights, to poultice his conscience; jelieves in the doctrine of live and et live, and, when he encounters one of the needy, he doesn't stutter vith his pocketbook. "The plain man is happy to be atisfied and does not spend the best of his life yearning for things our sizes too large for him." From the Quip-ing Post of the Clear Lake R*porter: This free «n- erprise.system of ours gives every- ody a chance to gt to the'top. The rouble is that some fellows de- send too much on the free and rx1 enough on the enterprise. FOR SALE CHURCH BLDG. 6U NO. DELAWARE · 5 Rooms and Bath at Rear of Building Shown This Sunday A.M. Only Jerry, of course, had lo call off ill bids and begin again. The human race, however, proved superior in the end. The bid-happy dog went on the block for $1.75 later in he sale. * The epithet "wheelchair brigade' s no longer suitable for Rotarians. The weekly Rotogram of the Mason City club had this potent bit ol youthful wisdom: "Seems a sow's ear doesn't make much of a purse 3ut a good calf can do a lot for silk stocking/' * Happiest Man Editor Lloyd E. Gustafson of the Mason City Methodist this week presented his definition of the hap piest man in the world. 'The happiest man n the -red Biermann Fred Biermann, who years ago jublished the weekly Journal at Decorah, recently'found a copy oJ he Jan. 4, 1907, Globe-Gazette in lis files and forwarded it to Pub- isher Lee P. Loomis with a few ·and words. "What a change in the G-G," he vrote. "I note several columns of boiler plate. The food prices are a striking contrast to those of 1954 advertisements." Biermann, a Democrat who once served this district as Representa :ive in Congress, had this to sa about politics: "I suggest yoi make a vigorous campaign to rid your congressional district of the unscrupulous, accomplished dem agogue, who represents it now." :· *. According to our contemporary of that community, an impatten expectant mother in Britt \s cred ted with stating: They've inventec atomic bombs and found man' ways to put atomic research to work for our benefit, but when will they discover a method of de veloping normal babies in less than nine months? ik- lgnore Signals 1C there is any traffic signal tba motorists feel a compulsion to ob serve it is the red flashings situ ated where school children cros the highway. A checkup by school authoritie at Kanawha, however, revealei that even this signal is ignored bj many drivers. Since the opening o school nearly 100 motorists faile to observe the school signals o Highway 111 in and out of Kana wha. These 700 violations represen only a part of the total as they were recorded during the period from 12 noon to 1 p.m. and did not take into consideration signal operation in the morning and at dismissa time in the afternoon. Aids Invalid Wife Through Inventions By BILL WEBB Probably to no man has "necessity" been more "tlie mother^ of nvention" than to John P. (Jack) Peterson, 531 llth N.E. Peterson, a retired crane operator, has built more things from bumper jacks, vindshield cranks, o l d telephone packets and hunks of conduit than Blackstone has tricks. «^M^ It may seem like magic. But it sn't. Peterson's w i f e became arthritic eight years ago and in he interim has developed diabetes, ugh b l o o d pressure and a bad leart Mrs. Peterson would have become completely bedridden if lot for the ingenuity of her husband who from odds and ends has provided what would be expensive rehabilitation and hospital equipment. Cheaper to Retire When Mrs. Peterson was first confined to her bed five years ago ler husband engaged a companion ' her. But he soon found that it vas cheaper for him to retire, take care of his wife himself and live off Social Security than to work and stand the expense of a companion. That's when the gadgets f i r s t came into mind. Peterson built a ramp frpm his house around a small tulip terrace in his b a c k yard to the garage for his wife's wheelchair. At the same lime he ndded a glassed-in porch from which his wife could view the garden. A series of mirrows tilted by means of a couple of truck wincl- ihield cranks permitted Mrs. Pe- :erson to look out across the garden onto 10th street or back west to the city waterworks while lying n bed. Production Flourishes From then on gadget production lourished. Peterson put up tubu- ar steel railings throughout the louse where ever his wife might ,vant to pull herself erect from her vheelchair. He fixed the side door of the basement landing so hat it could be closed from the op of the stairs. He set up a bed n .the living room with a rigging f hand grips and a bosun's chair ie changed doors around so that her wheelchair could move freely anywhere in the house. He added evers to the light switches so that he lights could be turned on with :ase. . . With a windshield crank and an old telephone bracket as the operating mechanism he built a desk hat can be raised and lowered to iny position. Peterson constructed an exercising device for his wife's arms and legs and a collapsible valker. At present he is working on a lydraulic lift and a collapsible cot. The hydraulic part of the lift is made up of a bumper jack and a piece of conduit. Painstaking Craftsman Peterson is a painstaking craftsman. As an example in building he hydraulic lift he first made a model. The primary purpose of the lift vas to operate as a maneuverable unit that could pass through door vidth and yet lift his wife com !ortably to move her from the bed so that it could be made. The only effort on the part of Mrs. Pe- .erson would be to roll over on the lifting ·; table. From the model, where he work- e d o u t t h e technical problems Peterson is building a full scale wooden framed working model. I it proves satisfactory that wooc will be replaced with tubular steel The finished product, as all of his work, will be professional in ap pearance and practical in applica tion. Peterson has one big problem at present. If he thinks up many more gadgets he'll have to get a larger house. There just isn't room.
