f V Y* SIXTEEN WATH SUPPLY IS ASSURED FOR CITY Improvement of Well No. 7 Gives Protection From Accidents, Floods. Work has been completed on well No. 7 of the Mason City water department and the well has been put into service with satisfactory results, according to City Manager E. H. 'Crofoot Thursday. · The improvement of this well makes it possible far. the. department to furnish the normal supply of water direct from the well without MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 8 1931 going through the regular system. In this way a constant supply of water can be supplied through the city mains though the plant storage reservoirs are forced out of commission due to accident or high water such as was encountered last spring. According to engineers the well is considered a valuable improvement to the city water supply and will afford almost absolute protection against any emergency that might arise. Three sources of electric power to the equipment, besides independent steam power, make it almost impossible for the well to be shut down due to accidents, weather conditions and unforeseen obstructions.

A second fire in the early afternoon did little damage to the Dr. Tosten home on Winnebago street, and was mt out at once. Many Iowa Cities May Seek Subsistence Farms as Part Time Work Aids Committee in Mason City Is Studying Project; May Make Application. The subsistence homestead i» the latest development in President Roosevelt's national back to the land experiment and several Iowa cities are planning to participate in the movement. A committee in Mason City has been studying the matter and collecting preliminary data but the formal application has not been filed. The committee is meeting again this week to discuss the project further and decide whether or not a subsistence homestead in this vicinity will be sought. Other Iowa cities which have taken steps toward applying for subsistence homesteads, according to an Associated Press dispatch, are TWO DAY SALE Friday and Saturday, March 9th, 10th PINEAPPLE Sna - 17« PEAS:: Tender, Sweet Ones ..........

Its application has been sent o the Subsistence Homestead di- ision of the department of interior and is expected to be approved icrtly. The Granger homesteads are for ocal coal miners who work short ours and then only seasonally. Two undred and fifty acres of fertile and near the city is the site of the reposed homestead. It probably ·ill be broken up into three to five- cre plots. According to present ions, the homesteaders will help onstruct their own homes under tilled supervision. The land is located sufficiently ear the city so that electricity, water, sewage disposal and schools re available. Bach homestead will ost in the"'neighborhood of $2,000 and ?2,500. The homesteads will be inanced from a 25 million dollar overnment revolving fund appro- riated by congress. Corporations Set Up. In each city where a subsistence omestead is set up, a local corpor- tion has to be organized. Its board f directors will include a represen- :ative of the subsistence homestead ivision and the local homesteaders. The subsistence homestead divi- ion will lend money to the corporation at 4 per cent interest.. The orporation will lend it to the home- teaders at the same rate plus over- nead expenses with which the homes will be built, and equipment sup- ilied for operating the tracts. The homesteaders will repay the corporation in from 20 to 30 years. Annual payments will cover interest and a small per cent of this principal. The money then will be returned to the Subsistence Homestead division and used elsewhere. Given Wide Latitude. Wide -latitude has been granted those local corporations in working out each project to suit conditions. No stereotyped plan will be followed. The corporation will determine the size of the tract, type of house to be built, amount and type of landscaping and will have supervision over the homestead organization and management. The subsistence homestead, according to Paul C. Taff, chairman of the subsistence homestead committee at Iowa Statae college, signifies more than mere subsistence living. It will assure, Taff believes, a way of life in which part-time workers may work out for themselves greater economic security and a higher standard of living. Reasons In Iowa. In Iowa, he says,- the subsistence homestead is needed lor two reasons: 1 For industrial workers and Skilled laborers whose hours of work have been greatly reduced or whose income has been cut severely. 2. For "stranded" workers in the coal mining industry who see little if any prospect, for future full-time employment. "Even in Iowa," says Mr. Taff, "it probably will be a long time before all the people who formerly were fully employed will be fully employed again or earn a living wage. "The subsistence homestead, in addition to giving these people an opportunity to better their situation, will give them something constructive to do with their leisure time-an increasing problem due to short" er hours and part-time employment." Refers to Criticisms. There have been two criticisms of the subsistence homestead here, Mr. Taff says: That it will compete with agriculture and that it will develop into a '-'rural slum." Taff believes that lowana need have no fear that the subsistence homestead will compete with agriculture, because: "It will grow slowly and we can make necessary adjustments. "It will not develop to such an extent that any great portion of land will be occupied. "Subsistence homesteaders will not produce for a market." Nor does Taff believe that subsistence homesteads will deteriorate into "rural slums." He says that "the exact opposite" is to be expected. "If uninterested, slipshod people get into the homesteads' this might happen. The homesteaders, however, must be approved by local boards of directors and such persons will be weeded out. Careful selection and supervision of homesteaders will be made." Special Measures Required. Underlying the enactment of the subsistence homestead legislation, Mr. Taff says, is the belief that large numbers of the population of the United States face a period of employment difficulties so severe and prolonged that special measures are required to deal with the situation. The plan in its broad sense, he believes, will to some extent redistribute the population and decentralize industry. It also would develop a new order of living--subsistence fanning--by which industrial workers may live on small tracts of land and produce a part of the family living in addition to earning some cash wages. M. L. Wilson, director of the Subsistence Homestead division, has said that "The only way that all may have an opportunity to live abundantly is to be able to produce abundantly those things which can be consumed abundantly." Other Wants Limitless. His idea is that there are limitations as to the amount of food a hu- man can consume but that his other wants are practically limitless. H« believes that it is justifiable to give everyone willing to work an opportunity to produce goods and services so that when these goods and services are exchanged the individual laborer or producer can ,raise his standard of living. The projects being developed all over the country at the present time fall largely into four classifications .and purposes: 1. Stranded industrial groups such as coal miners. The idea is that representative members of these workers will be moved to new localities and settled in subsistence homesteads where attempts will be made to give them part-time wage employment. 2. For industrial decentralization. This Involves moving an industry out ol a thickly populated center and surrounding it with subsistence homesteads. 3. Working men's garden homes at the'outskirts of present centers of employment. This means building homes on plots of land of one to five acres reasonably convenient to the employment center. Use More Fertile Land. 4. Stranded agricultural groups. Families now on submarginal land would be shifted to more fertile land. Such a project would remove families from cut-over lands, which would go into federal forests, to the edge of the forest area. These families would become part-time timber or lumber workers. PRACTICES AT 100 Another fault of the American: When he learns to drive a car, he s ashamed to drive a bargain.-- Javenport Times. Dr. Wilson A. Allen ot Rochester, Minn., who has reached the age of 100 and still practices medicine from his bedside, says his "first 100 years have not been the hardest." (Associated Press Photo). Other groups .to be aided by the project are over aged workers, those having only cyclical and seasonal employment and those partially thrown out of work because of the shorter workday and week. More than four and one-half billions in proposed subsistence projects have been submitted to the Subsistence Homestead division, Mr. Taff says. More than 2,000 separate applications have been made from every state and from Puerto Rico Hawaii, Alaska and the Virgin Islands. Several hundred projects in the nation already have been approved.
