MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE I" CERRO GORDO COUNTY CORN-HOG COMMITTEE SELECTED l^..,,i " KIOTO B* MPSSEM. ~ Berry a Pint Pays Cost of Crates "A "berry a pint pays the cost of the crates," said an old adage among the growers of strawberries. What they meant wa§ that if they could manage to put one less strawberry than full measure In each pint box the total saving for the season would be enough to gay their packaging costs.

For several years, Don McPeak, president of the Mason City hardware company, has sought to meet the demands of the farm trade near Mason City and has succeeded in making the store one of the farm trading centers of the city. The store las stocked supplies of special equipment for farmers. Washing machines, with gas driven motors for rural homes, cook stoves that utilize gas in the same method of those of the city homes, chick waterers and supplies, battery operated radios, 32 volt lighting plants, etc., are a few of the numerous types of hardware stocked for this trade. The store maintains a policy of making the farmer welcome while shopping in Mason City. Several changes have been made in the arrangements of displays, fixtures, etc., during the past year, but no great deviation from the policy of the store has been made for the oast several years. It's certainly easy pickin's at Gildners North Iowa LookingUp, View Here Business Shows Much Improvement, Says Satter. With January and February of this year showing the largest sales volume of any corresponding period in the history of the Mason City store of J. C. Penney company, O. A. Satter, local manager, has little difficulty in justifying a feeling .that North Iowa is turning the corner around which prosperity is said to be stationed. All indications at the Penney store are that this is the right corner--not just another Wind alley. The present sales force at the Mason City J. C. Penney store is' double the force employed at this time in 1933, Mr. Satter said, adding that the increase in employes was due to the increased volume of trade as much as it was to the new codes. Corn loans, civil works administration paychecks, additional jobs and various other factors are contributing to better times to Manager Batter's opinion. The J. C. Penney organization established its Mason City branch in 1926, and Mr. Satter has been with the local store since that time. Over-cooking of vegetables is a common cause of the prejudice against them. You'll find shopping at Gildners an easy job this spring.
