BIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 8 . MRS. REMINGTON GIVES LAST IN SERIES OF LECTURES Period One of Changes Not Crisis Minneapolis W o m a n Sees Dawn of New Age of Thinking/People. Characterizing the present not so much as a period of crisis, but a period of change, Mrs. W. W. Remington of Minneapolis addressed the current events department of the Woman's club in the last of her season's series of addresses Wednesday afternoon at the Y. W. C. A. "There is? a revival in the distribution of thinking," Mrs. Remington said, pointing out that this may presage a reflective age. "The thin veneer of culture is being pierced and a new civilization is in view. If we can get that out of our dark ages, the travail will have been worth while. "Attempts are being made to reform all units of government. Efforts have been made before, but the support of the people has been lacking and the power of moneyed interests opposing the reform has defeated the attempt The food and drug bill has been emasculated by congress because the people did not inform their legislators of their wishes. Despair In Land. "A year ago there was despair in the land. Between 12 and 15 million were unemployed. There was suffering which will be never known. Banks were closed and confidence in financial institutions and in government was lost. New leadership has changed this and tha many things which have been done evidence partially what can be done. The greatest detriment has been the lack of co-operation of the people. "The arm of the government has reached into almost every field. It has not interfered in education, not in the professions, nor with liberty of speech, the right of assemblage and freedom of the press as is the case of the countries of Europe. No .one need fear that we are tending toward fascism, communism or collectivism. "There are many who think that recent governmental measures rep- wsent a departure from democratic ideals, but there are just as many who approve of the steps which were taken to avert a crisis." Mrs. Remington spoke briefly of the N. R. A., the intermediate credit banks, the bank deposit insurance, the securities act, the Tennesee Valley authority and the A. A. A. Housing Program. Mrs. Remington spoke of O. M. W. Sprague's proposal of a nationwide housing program as a solution for present difficulties. "The slums are expensive to the taxpayer," Mrs. Remington said, '''and the slums of the United States are worse than those of European cities. "Tariff will be the issue of the next presidential campaign. There are no other major policies of the democratic gavernment which lack the backing of the people. If the president were given the power to draw up a scientific tariff bill with the aid of experts it would give the people an opportunity to see what prooperly balanced tariff would do to trade. No tariff bill which has been passed has been scientifically adjusted. "Many people feel that now is the time to form new political parties. The democrats have departed from many of the ideals of their party and Mark Sullivan suggests that they form the social democratic party and that the old republican party change to the constitution demo- "PapierToyo" STRAWS In the Approved 1934 Styles ·wt - · "·Hats you would expect to" pay $5.00 for are here at OTHER HATS $1.95 to $7.50 In your type--your heudsize your color JULIUS ESTESS, Manager SMART FOR SPRINGTIME FROCK WHICH IS EASY TO MAKE WILL PROVE ATTRACTIVE ADDITION TO WARDROBE OloM-Uutcttc r«r!cu III 1*111 Pattern, too Fifth Avenne, New Vork cltj ll'j DIANA DAV .; What about your spring wear?

These new parties might form platforms to improve the quality of democracy. Improve Quality. Mrs.-Remington quoted Robert M. Hutchins, president of Chicago university, in his plan for improving the quality of government by simplifying administration by shorter ballots and a more visible form ol government; by revision of tax laws; by, arousing a social conscience of the people to demand an end to vice, corruption and fraud'; by the professionalizing; of bureaucracy to that expert service instead of mediocre service is possible in government. In concluding, Mrs. Remington spoke briefly of the conditions in Europe, pointing out that Germany has abolished individual liberty, even of thinking and that the people have begun to tire of nazism. She discussed the efforts of the nazis and fascists to control Austria, pointing put that it is simply a question of ' trade--whether Austrian goods be exported by a northern or southertt route.

The four patch pieced block is responsible for any number of star and wreath desigas and their variants, yet there are exceptions to these that are most interesting. "Churn Dash" is based on the same principle, and the difference is based on the same principle, and the difference is a matter of color. This is another example of the numerous designs that find their origin in the domesticities of early American life. This pattern is from Quilt Book No. 71 which contains six other patterns.
