Familiar with the earlier and more stereotyped forms of organization, she has kept abreast of the latest developments in this field. One of the most interring parts of her presentation is the comparison she makes between the "old" vacation church school and the "new." Few leaders are better qualified by personal experience than she to make this comparison. Study Co-Ordinated. Among the outstanding accomplishments in her field which have been sponsored by Mrs. Finn are the places assigned to youth and adults- and the educationally sound co-ordination of study and practice teaching in the leadership education phases of the "new" vacation church school. Mrs. Finn will present the vacation church school in one .conference, the young people's work in another and at a third period conduct a "coaching conference" for pastoral and lay leaders of vacation church schools.

Lee Lewis, pastor of the entertaining church announces that supper will be served to tie visiting guests in the church parlors at 6.15. Coffee will he served to those bringing their lunches.

Ashland and infant Admiral Dewey Tate Enters Navy Training From Manly March 6 Brave men and strong have spent many years of service in both peace and strife to earn the rank of admiral in the United States navy, yet a youth from Manly, scheduled to leave Mason City March 6 for the naval base at Norfolk, Va., will spend his first day in the service as Admiral Dewey Tate, the Second.

FLOOD DANGER IN MASON CITY PUT ON STATE'S LIST Herring Holds Conference While Threat of High Waters Nears. The Wincebago rivet region near Mason City is included among North Iowa districts where ice jams have formed in previous years, it was stated at a conference Monday in Des Moines, at which steps were taken in connection with flood threats. The highway commission, University of Iowa, WPA and army engineers promised aid to Gov. Clyde L. Herring and laid the groundwork of a campaign to forestall high waters. Also in North Iowa as danger points in the Cedar river watershed were listed Charles City, Greene, Clarksyille and Waterloo. The campaign will be directed by an "emergency flood control office" which Adjt. Gen. Charles Grahl was authorized to establish immediately at the state house, an Associated Press dispatch from Des Moines said. 31 Danger Points Listed. The office will gather data on flood danger points, amount of dynamite available for blasting ice jams, and generally co-ordinate the work of fighting floods if they develop. The conference Monday mapped 31 points throughout the state where floods resulting from ice jams are apt to occur. The engineers agreed that on the basis of present weather forecasts, indicating fair and warmer weather, the crisis is apt to come this week as the ice. goes out. Barring heavy rains, floods now will result from formation of ice jams which will back up the thaw water, the engineers said. Worst on Inland Streams. Greatest danger lies along the inland streams of Iowa, rather than the Mississippi and Missouri rivers which are expected to carry away their ice without any great trouble. According to the plan, district highway commission and WPA engineers will survey their districts immediately for flood danger zones and report to General Grahl. They also will keep him informed of developing conditions. Grahl said national guardsmen will be kept ready for immediate call for rescue work. County engineers and WPA workers will be ready to dynamite ice jams whenever this is deemed necessary. May Seek COG Aid. The governor said he also exp'ectr. ed authorization^ soon '.for -enlisting.- CCC camps throughout the state in the fight on floods. "There are 30 CCC camps in Iowa," he said, "and these will give us a lot of additional man power if we need it." Those who conferred with the governor were: Roy E. Brown, highway commission engineer; R. G. Kastle, University of Iowa professor attached to the United States geological survey; F. T. Mavis, University of Iowa hydraulics engineer; A. E. Michel, WPA project engineer; H: C. Tester. University of Iowa geologist; Capt. H. B. Loper of Omaha, Nebr., in charge of United States States army flood control work on the Missouri river, and General Grahl. Plan Dynamite Supplies. Loper told the governor the army would have dynamite and boats available for the Iowa fight on floods. Grahl was instructed to arrange for dynamite" supplies at strategic points throughout the state.. The conference mapped points where ice jams, already, .have formed, or usually have formed in past years. These were: Des Moines river--Boone, Wau- konsa park at Des Moines, Eddyville, Ottumwa, Eldon and Farmington. Skunk river--South of Mt. Pleasant along highway 161 and south of Sigourney at highway 149.

Speaking Sunday morning at the Church of Christ on "I Believe in God," D. L. Kratz, the pastor, declared that "Few people actually disbelieve in a divine being that controls the universe, but many have inadequate conceptions of His nature." "God could not be merely a principle system of laws as such would not explain the existence nor control of eves material things," the minister added. "God cannot be merely matter and force' as this does not allow for the existence of mind and spirit. God could not lack a heart or soul, the capacity to love and sympathize, else He would be less than the beings He has created. Only a personal God is big- enough to account for all of the phenomena of created life. Most people take this for granted in casual thinking- but continue to live as though God did not exist. "If there is a guiding, controlling and understanding power at the center of the universe, then the highest goal of life should be to bring ourselves into harmony with that divine being." This sermon was the first in a series on 'Our Great Christian Beliefs." Next Sunday the theme "I Believe in Christ" will be discussed. "Christ Jesus" was the subject of the Lesson-Sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, on Sunday, March 1. The Golden Text was from Isaiah 9:6, "Unto us a child is born, unto u." a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder." The Lesson-Sermon comprised quotations/rom the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. One of the Bible citationes read: "Now upon the first day of the week, very' early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: . . . ." (Luke 24:16). Among the selections from the Christian Science .textbook was the following: "The resurrection of the great demonstrator of God's power was the proof of his final triumph over body and matter, and gave full evidence of divine science,--evidence so important ' to mortals.
