"AS SPRY AS EVER" · · I'HOTO BY WRIGHT STUDIO FRANK MCCORKLE. FRANK STIVERS. Old Timers' Store to Be Opened on Federal No Person Under 50 Years* -of Age to Be Employed in New Enterprise. ' An "Old Time-Modem Store," the only one like it in the United States, according to Luke B. Miller,-manager of the Sterling grocery stores of Mason City will be started Friday at 1509 South Federal avenue, directly across from the fairgrounds. The store will be known as the Sterling Store No. 3. Two retired farmers nearly 60 years of age will be in charge of the store. Frank Stivers, who was with the Mason City Brick and Tile company for 15 years following his retirement from the farm, and Frank McCorkle. an ex-banker, following his younger days on the farm, are to be the two managers. Both are widowers; one chews tobacco and the other snuff; and both claim they can do as much work as ever. Old Fiddlers Hired. On the two opening days of the store. Friday and Saturday, Mr. Miller will have five clerks, all 60 years of age or older, in the store besides several of his younger clerks. Old fiddlers, guitar players and entertainers will be on hand. Driveways will be open to both the front and rear of the building and it is planned to build a horsesfioe court for elderly meh'and a sandpile for children in connection with the store. "It's going to be the old time store of Mason City," said Mr. Miller, "cracker barrels and all, but it will carry the same line of groceries, meats and fruits that the other Sterling stores handle and the prices will be the same." No One Under 50. Following the opening of the store no person under SO years of age will be allowed to work in it. Mr. Miller said the plan was a hobby with him but that he believed it to be a sound business proposition. He has abundant confidence that the retired farmers who have been residents in Mason City for 25 years and have been employed by Mr. Miller for the past six years, will make the store a success. A home will be furnished for the men to live in. All capital will be furnished by Mr. Miller and the men will split their profits with him. "This is an opportunity for men whom most persons think are ready to be put on the shelf a chance to show what they caa do," said Mr. Miller. Services Are Held for Daniel L. Dean Funeral services for Daniel Louis Dean, 77, who died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ada Statzer, 645 Polk avenue southwest, Tuesday of pneumonia, were held at the Me- Auley funeral home Thursday afternoon.

PACKING GROUP HEARS M'COY International Vice President and Other Leaders Give Addresses. A meeting sponsored by the Amalgamated Meat Cutters and Butcher Workmen was held at Eagles hall Wednesday night where J. P. McCoy, international vice president, spoke to an overflow crowd. Mr. McCoy discussed the growth of the Amalgamated organization explaining the financial operations of the union and pointing out how elections are conducted by the government to eliminate the so called company unions, whenever a sufficient number of workers expressed a wish to have their own representation. . For the benefit of packing house workers in other crafts such as machinists, tinners, pipe fitters, brick layers, carpenters, electricians and truck drivers. Mr. McCoy explained: "In the past it has been our policy to turn each of these crafts back to their respective organizations, however, we found that the Amalgamated, being by far the largest of these organizations, was able to do more for them in the way of wages and working onditions than any of the other organizations and, therefore, we now take them all in under the head of packing house workers and our organization now holds jurisdiction over every packing house worker, man or woman, of whatever trade or craft except superintendents, bosses, timekeepers and office help." Mr. Mcoy gave a lengthy discourse which was well received and as a result the officers announced there will be a large class to initiate at the next meeting. Secretary E. E. Lane and Mr. Richland of Waterloo were present. Mr. Lane explained labor conditions in Waterloo and how local No. 270 handled the situation there. There were several other speakers including Miss Mayme Foley, candidate for county recorder; R. W. Kellar and H. E. Madsen of the North Towa Rod and Gua club, Sheriff J. M. Robertson and William Grieb- Hng and Dick Dale, labor candidates for school directors.

CWA WORK BEING ROUNDED OFF ON LOCAL PROJECTS Review of Improvements in Mason City Is Given by Supervisor. In view of the reductions in the civil works administration in the county, v.-ork is being brought to a close on the projects, according to the reports of the project supervisor. Approximately 13 miles of park- ings on the streets of Mason City have been cleared and put to grade. The work has required the removal of 9,100 cubic yards of material, which has been hauled away by city trucks and disposed of where filling was needed. One hundred and thirty tree stumps and 125 trees have been grubbed out and removed. These trees were mostly Carolina poplars whose roots were causing damage to sidewalks and sewers. Ninety-one men in four crews were employed at the work this week. 1,750 Trees Trimmed. In the tree trimming project approximately 1,750 trees along the city streets of Mason City have been trimmed since the work was started. The work has been scattered about the city and in mosi cases the work was done at the request or with the consent of th«. owners of the abutting property. Seven men were employed on this project this week. The work of cleaning the streams which flow through Mason City is nearing completion. The work included the removal of rubbish, the clearing away of brush along the banks, the building of retaining walls where needed, the removal ot sandbars and the easing off of sharp bends which impede the flow ot water. The work was started on the west edge of the city and has progressed downstream a distance of approximately two miles. Less than one-half mile of Willow Creek remains to be cleaned. Sixty-seven men were employed on this project this week. One of the largest projects undertaken in Mason City has been the municipal quarry. What was an unsightly hole in the bank of the Winnebago river has been cleaned up and will be made into a place of recreation. The old waste banks have been leveled. Approximately 2,500 cubic yards of stone has been crushed and piled up for future use in street improvements. Retaining Wall Built. Retaining walls have been constructed along the bank of the river. These walls were constructed to serve the double purpose of protecting the sewer, which is laid along the south bank of the river, and of forming a pathway which it is hoped will eventually connect with East Park, giving the park an entrance from Carolina avenue. An industrial railroad which has been constructed along the river bank connecting the quarry with East Park will be used to convey waste material from the quarry to the park where it will be used for filling in low ground. This week 131 men were employed at the quarry. The levee which is being constructed along the south bank of the Winnebago river from the C. M. and St. Paul railroad grade to the high ground to the east of the disposal plant, a distance of approximately 1,700 feet, is nearing completion. The bank is built, with the exception of a few places where the material will have to be hauled with teams. The work of leveling off and trimming up the slopes will progress as the frost goes out of the ground. During the week 77 men were employed on the project. Repair Sewer. The work of repairing the main sewer at the disposal plant was carried on this week with 23 men. About 250 feet of this sewer has been uncovered, repaired and back filled. A total of 150 feet of trench is open. The excavation for the storage room at the water plant is little more than half completed. This excavation is largely in rock and the stone that conies out in regular shapes is being piled for future use in building retaining walls. The smaller irregular stone is hauled to the quarry and run through the crusher. Sixty-nine men are working on the project this week. C A S H FOR YOUR OLD CAIt. NO WAITING--NO DELAY Lapiner Motor Co.
