"Ooooh, Mamma, we got company, we got company!" Two little tots jumped up and down at the doorway of one household, as Boj Scouts delivered a basket auc blankets Saturday morning 1 . At another door, where a large basket was left, a child was seriously ill and there was a. lack of joy but thankfulness'for the gift from the Social Welfare league. Saturday morning' the Boy Scouts of the city delivered 95 baskets of food, more than 350 new toys and books, more than 350 pieces of clothing, 15 quilts, 25 new dresses, and 30 pair of shoes. More than. 450 children were made happy by the visit from the Cheer Fund Santa Glaus. Giving Satisfactory. "We received more satisfaction from this year's giving of Christmas cheer baskets than we have ever had," said Mrs. Mabel M. Blaise, secretary of the Social Welfare league, Saturday. "No candy was given this year, but we did give lots of toys and clothing. What was not used for this was used for food and fuel. "The baskets this .year were much more substantial than in previous years, due to a Pre-Christmas checkup of families to find out what was needed." Mrs. Frank Hanson, 326 Eighth street northwest, and Mrs. George Senior, 312 Eighth street northwest, spent considerable time at the office of the Welfare league tying- packages and preparing- articles for the delivery Saturday. Miss Ruby Jo- lannsen, stenographer at the Social 'Velfare league office, and Ruth risher, city nurse, also worked on :he packages and it took the group until 11 o'clock Friday night to omplete the task. Cars were donated by Mason Cityans for the delivery of packages Saturday morning. Toys Kefinlshed.

NICK ' PHOTO BY HUSSEI.I, "The miniature sled and eight tiny reindeer" and "the little old driver so jolly and quick" can't be mistaken here. Kindergarten pupils at Jefferson have been preparing for Christmas by changing their playhouse into a snow bedecked home which is about to be visited by Santa Claus. Most of the work of roofing the house and covering it with a liberal fall of snow as wall as the window-boxes and the front yard was done by the pupils. They also painted the reindeer and the sled. Small bells hang in the windows,and the door bears a wreath. The work was done under the direction of the teacher, Miss Carol Starr. Frances Hazlett Wed to Kenneth Fuelling Miss Frances Hazlett of Monona and Kenneth Fuelling of Farmersburg were married Friday evening at the Olivet Methodist parsonage by the Rev. William Galbreth.

COMPLETE RADIATOR and BATTERY SERVICE Central Battery and Electric Company LUKE B. MILLER WIRES JOHNSON Explains Why He Asks Federal Probe of Local Police. Luke B. Miller Friday night sent 600 word telegram to Hugh Johnon national recovery administra- or, explaining his position in ask- ng for a federal investigation of the Mason City police department. Following is- the telegram, which as signed "Luke B. Miller, IT. . A.:" "All during the depression before ie NRA I kept ah my help at sal- ries away above the NRA code. When the ( NRA code came out I had 6 cler*:s and I took on six more. \ -as strong for the NRA. It helped ut my competitors on a more even asis. Some of them were not pay- ng one-half the wages I was pay- ng. I didn't have to raise a salary to omply with the NRA. The increase f employes cost me ?500 a month, donated last year over ?2,100 to ;harity. I think I accomplished the ibjective point in your drive. "Some time ago in Mason City we elected a 3.2 council and as you know 3.2 is a trifle weak. They ap- jointed a man to be chief of police ;hat had been in ward politics for quite a time. With a little authority granted him he started to show off and break the law. He planted himself at the back door of my store with some of his policemen and started to tag cars when they stopped to unload eggs or load groceries. Whether they were single or double parked it made no difference they tagged them. The law in Iowa gives me the right of the use of th alley back of my building. The cit attorney made the statement tha' I was right. Went Before Council. "I went before the council one made a speech and didn't use mill langruag-e. After the speech cami out in the paper the chief of polio wrote a piece in the paper statin) I was not telling the truth. I had a council meeting called and producet my witness to prove every state ment that I made. Neither the coun cil nor the chief of police showed up Only two members appeared afte stating I was not toiling the truth We cornered the chief of police an he signed a statement to the publi and printec. In the press that I wa telling the truth and stated no mor cars wo lid be tagged and invited ou of town people to come to Mason City to shop. Most of the cars tha were tagged belonged to farmers. "It seemed as though they hav been kicking the farmer around s much they can't get out of the habit All this happened just before th' NRA went into effect. The polic. kept their word until a short tim. ago when I wrote a piece in the paper about spreading the profits The paper came out at 3:30 and a 4 o'clock a policeman again ap peared behind my* store and a farm er'3 car had been tagged. "Kicking Farmers." "They still insist on kicking the farmers around. Before the first at tack on my store by the police my wife had been ill and just getting around again. The attack on the store so upset her that she broki down and I had to take her to a san itarium. "My wife 1ms been back home jus a month and now they start anothe; attack. The law ia on my side am I don't intend to stand for It. I havi backed President and yourself 100 per cent and will continue to do so You cannot ask me to keep al this help and expense to comply with the NRA then have policemen back of my store to tag: cars an~ scare trade away. Around the othe: stores nothing is snld or done nbou parking- as far as I can find out. think the NRA is bigger than th' Councilman Olson Leaves to See Rose Bowl Game Deep Sea Fishing May DAVID OLSON Mason City council or chief of po- ice. Let's have action. I want to Also Be on Schedule /or Next Month. Councilman David Olson completed plans to leave Friday night jor California, where he will attend the Columbia-Stanford Rose Bowl football game, visit places of scenic interest and peraaps do some deep sea fishing off Catalina avenue. Mr. Olson had no definite plans concerning his trip to the west, but stated he would spend a month in California during which time he would probably stroll about the giant sequoia, see how they make motion pictures and observe the operation of municipal affairs in the =oast city. Mr. Olson decided to go in for deep sea fishing this season instead of making his usual trips to the Minnesota lakes. It will be recalled the councilman was a member of a party that was fined by a justice *of peace near one of the lakes in Minnesota last spring. Because of this humiliating epi- WOOD DIRECTING GEODETIC SURVEY N CERRO GORDO 50 Miles of Work Completed and 77 Miles Left to Go on Project. Cerro Gordo county is one of the 2 counties in Iowa selected by the United States coast and gedetic sur- ery as a link in the engineering lo- al control survey across the state. n en men, with headquarters at ilear Lake, have been at work in bis county for nearly two weeks nder the direction of C. R. Wood, hief of party for county surveying ^heir work, which is expected to oc- upy them until Feb. 15, is one of lie civil works projects in the tate. It now employs 440 persons. Mr. Wood stated Saturday that e already had 50 miles of the sur- ey completed with 77 more miles o go before the completion of the reject. This control survey will make ossible in the future a reasonable rice for land surveying and other urveying- projects, according to D rof. J. S. Dodds of Iowa State ollege, who is in charge of the urvey for the geodetic survey. It embraces the running of survey ines at frequent intervals through a strip about 36 miles wide across he state, east and west paralleling lighway 6, and north and south aralleling highway 65, and along he Mississippi river. The work lies aiong: the present triangulation net }f the U. S. coast and geodetic sur~ ·ey. The project also includes run- ling 1 levels along the same lines and etting concrete bench marks at requent intervals. To Set Monuments. In all, about 15,000 concrete monuments will be set in the ground o mark the points of the survey in he 42 counties. These will be made central concrete plants by the urveying parties. Holes for these iosts, 4 feet deep, are being dug .ow, except where rock ledge is en- ountered. The lines of the survey will be un along the principal highways nd the monuments will be set on ligh ground in the road right-of- vay near the. property line. The monuments will have imbedded in heir tops bronze tablets which will ndicate the number and the eleva- ion above sea level. The traverse ines will be run with instruments n such good adjustment that the prove every' statement that I have made." $15,100 in Christmas CWA Payroll Satrday's Pay One of Largest Thus Far. A total of 515,100.40 was pourec into the CWA stocking in this week's payroll in Cerro Gordo country, Saturday's payroll will represent one of the largest Christmas eve presents many of the families of thse workers have seen in several years. sode Mr. Olson has decided to "go west" for his fishing this year. When asked concerning the operation of the city's affairs during his absence Mr. Olson expressed himself as having no misgivings. "They are all good fellows and they'll get along," he said. PLANS MADE FOR THREE DANCES No Reservations Made But Sufficient Tables to Be Provided. Walt Ames, manager of the Clear Lake Country club, states that he has had a dozen or more telephone calls from people who wanted to reserve tables for one of the three dances to be held at the clubhouse over this week-end. Sufficient tables will be available for all three affairs, Mr. Ames states, but they are not being reserved in advance. The first Christmas dance is to be held at the clubhouse Saturday night, Dec. 23, with Carey Brothers' ehorcstra furnishing the music. A dawn dance is to be given Sunday night and it will start at 11 p. m. and continue until 4 a. m. Monday morning. Music will be supplied by Carey Brothers' orchestra of Ames. Monday night, Dec. 25, the annual Christmas dance will be held at the clubhouse, with Bobby Griggs and his orchestra furnishing the music and singing features. The clvibhouse has been elaborately decorated for the holiday season. Anton Noerskov Johnsen, of Copenhagen,- who claims to be the oldest active bank manager in the world, has celebrated his one-hundredth birthday. WILLIAM TIIS SERVICES HELD Rites for English Born Man Held at First Baptist Church. Funeral services for William Tims, 65, who died at his home, 548 Third street northeast Friday morning following a lingering illness were held at the First Baptis church Saturday afternoon. The Rev. A. W. Caul, pastor of the church, waa in charge of the serv ices. Burial was in Elmwood cem etery. Mr. Tims was .born in Egham Surry, England, in 1868. He came to America when 20 years of age. Hi was employed at the Chicago, Mil waukee, St. Paul and Pacific rail road for a number of years. For UK past 22 years he has been the en g-ineer at the First National banl building. He was married to Mary Ann Cooper of Jlason City, who died in IflOD. One child was bom to thi. union, W. J. Tims of Estherville He was married to Sophia Ann Dempsey in 1911 in Mason City. His wife, two sons, William Estherville and Richard of Mason City, and one daughter, Mra. Cecl Cole, survive him. One step daugh ter, Mrs. Frank Carroll and one brother. Fred Tims, one sister, Mrs Jim Hutchins, Mason City, also sur vive. One brother, Harry Tims, Al bcrtn, Canada, and four brother and two sisters in England, also sur vive. ' At the Hospitals Ted Bergman, Portland, was ad mitted to the Park hospital Fridaj for a minor operation. Peter Hoveland, 2217 Delawar avenue southeast, was admitted t the Park hospital Friday for minor operation. Richnrd Hunt, Clear Lake, wa dismissed from the Park hoaplta Friday following a major operation error in 100 feet will be less than one-eighth inch. A computation party is now at work at Ames calculating the plane co-ordinates of the triangulation stations which were built a few years ago by the geodetic survey. The stations are at the locations occupied during the triangnlation survey by tall towers on the top of which surveying instruments and lights were operated. There are approximately 100 of these points in the state, at intervals of about 12 miles. On account of their great distance apart these main triangulation points are of little use to surveyors at present. Instruction Given. A school of instruction in instrument work is being: held at Ames on Dec. 27. Here the engineers will receive detailed directions in handling of tlio transit, the level and the tape. "The new survey will be useful in connection with property line determinations, and in connection with drainage and highway surveys," states Professor Dodds. "It will be useful in settling: disputes between property owners and will reduce the cost of many surveying- operations in the future. The work 13 designed partially as a work relief project to give emnloyment to many engineers who h"ave been out of work." The present project covers only part of Iowa but it is expected that no point in the state will be more than a mile distant from one of the starting points when the whole sys- tem is completed. Two monuments or more will be placed in each incorporated city. i Funeral Services for George M.
