"While there are twice as many cases of ' scarlet fever in the south part of the state compared with last year, Mason City only has about half as many, according to the February records," the health officer stated. At present there are 9 cases of scarlet fever in the isolation hospital and 6 cases quarantined in the homes. Last year the number of cases in the isolation hospital at one time reached a high of 31, while this year the high figure is 14, Dr. Franchere stated.

FED. the city resulting from severe weather, beer permits, refunding of police station warrants and plans for eliminating the center pier at the Milwaukee railroad viaduct. Parting: Takes Flace. When adjournment was about to take place the parting of the two new councilmen, Leo Davey and W S. Wilcox, from the retiring: members of the council took place in a most amiable, in fact, touching manner. Mr. Wilcox expressed regret that their, association was over inasmuch as their relations* the past year had been most pleasant. His statemeni was concurred in by Mr. Davey. ' "Well, I can say the past year has been the most pleasant of the three years I have been on the council,' said Mr. Laird. "I wish the new council all success." Expresses Thanks. "I want to thank Mr. Wilcox and Mr. Davey for the co-operation they have given the past year," said Mr. Olson. "I know the city will be well served under them in the future The first two years I was on the council we had a lot of disagreements but this last year we have learned to love each other and it has been .a happy year for me. Furthermore, I want to say that Mr. Barclay, the city manager, is making a good record and I know he is working for the best interests of the city." "If the new city council likes Mr. Barclay as well as I do its relation with him is going to be most pleasant," said Mr. Laird. "I have no grudge against Mr. Barclay even if I didn't vote for him," said Mayor Burns. "I wish the new council the best of luck. I am sure you won't be criticized. We haven't all seen things the same way all the time but we got along." Has Able Successor. Mr. Wilcox pointed out the past year brought one sad experience to the city administration in the death of the veteran clerk, J. H, McBwen, but added the city was fortunate in having an able successor in Miss Rena Mack. One act of the "new deal" organization rose to plague its retiring members at their last meeting. This was tc find some way to pay for a police station which had been built at a cost of $22,000 of which $21,000 was still in the form of outstanding warrants. Pointed questions on how the sta- 'tion came to be built without any plans for financing it were asked by Mr. Wilcox. "Why couldn't we wait?" asked Mayor Burns. "We can issue bonds now just as well as before can't we?" "What if a vote on a bond issue turned it down?" asked Mr. Wilcox. More Than Expected. Mr. Laird explained it was his understanding when the building was proposed that it was not to cost more than SS.OOO or perhaps $10,000 and be paid for out of current expenses. This also was Mr. Olson's view. "The largest sum Mr. Crofoot mentioned, which was when the building was practically completed that it was not to cost more than $15,000." said Mr. Laird. The problem of refunding the warrants was referred to City Manager Herbert Barclay and City Solicitor Harvey J. Bryant. The council voted to pay half the claim of 5105.95 presented by B. L. Gollman for injuries received when he fell on the ice on the sidewalk west of the Ideal American laundry. The other half of the claim had been paid by the laundry, it was reported. N n f i m Is Krnd.

Claims of Dr. R. W. Schultz and Harry Geno of a similar nature also were referred to the city solicitor for investigation. A bill from Dr. G. W.

A beer permit was denied Sam Zachariades for the Shamrock tavern, 341 South Federal avenue, on ie motion of Mr. Wilcox, who opposed the granting of the license. said, for the reason it violated an agreement between two brothers, John and Sam Zachariades, as to the operation of establishments selling beer. Sam Zachariades already was operating the Presto, he said. The appeal of Neal Springer, 20 Twenty-seventh street southwest, 'or cancellation of some 515 in personal taxes was referred to the next meeting of the council. Mr. Springer, who is a disabled war veteran drawing $46 a month, wished to lave tax delinquencies wiped out to jave the way for'a government loan on his property. "I would rather pay my pro rata share of one-fifth of the amount myself than to deviate from our _.,.-_ .,, -- j^jj remissions," said iolicy of no ilr. Laird. To Renew Steel. The city manager read a letter from W. F. Ingraham. division superintendent of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific railroad, stating that railroad was planning to renew the steel for the underpass on South Federal avenue, eaving the pier in place, started a discussion on a plan of procedure to irocure the elimination of the pier. Leaving the pier practically means the city will not get repav- ng of that section of the street when the highway commission repaves Federal avenue, Mr. Davey stated. A letter to the city manager from J. C. Buchanan, city detective, asking leave of absence from May 1 to June 2 in which to conduct his campaign for the republican nomination for sheriff of Cerro Gordo county was read at the meeting and left in the hands of Mr. Barclay. Hearing on Brewer Charges Postponed Until Next Tuesday A surprise move in the disbarment charges brought by Mrs. Helen Schultz .Brewer against Garfield Breese, Mason City attorney, resulted in the postponement of the hearing, formerly set for March 2, to March 10. Mr. Breese stated Monday that he knew nothing about the postponement until Monday morning. Meanwhile, Judge George Wood, Waterloo, one of the three judges appointed to hear the charges, had come to Mason City prepared to begin the trial and did not learn of Chief Justice M. F. Donegan's postponement until he reached here. It was assumed here that Mrs. Brewer had applied for and obtained the change in date. Illustrated Talk by Lawson Is Presented at Rotary Gathering A. classification talk by Millard C. Lawson, district manager of the In- :ernational Harvester, 'was given Monday noon at the Rotary club meeting in Hotel Hanford. This was one of a series of classification talks by newer members of the club.

Phone 986 Harold Heneman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred C. Heneman, 1214 Adams avenue northwest, won the 145 pound championship in the Northwest A. A. U. wrestling tournament held at Minneapolis last week. Heneman, member of the Mohawk wrestling team while attending high school here/is now a student at the University of Minnesota and is on the Gopher freshman mat team. The young Mason Cityan, by winning the A. A. U. crown, also won a trip to the Olympic wrestling team tryouts. The site for the Olympic tryouts has not yet been determined but Heneman is certain of being entered in the meet. 20 Entered in His Class. Twenty men were entered in the 145 pound class of the A. A. U. tournament and the local youth won the title with a fall in the finals. Ed L. Shave, nationally known boxing and wrestling expert, and sports editor of the St. Paul Daily News, told Heneman following the championship match that he had "put on the nicest match of the tournament." Another bit of praise from an authoritative source came the Mason Cityan's way when, as he puts it in a letter to his parents, "an old man who had been watching came up to me and told me that I did a fine piece of wrestling and that I had the fundamentals of wrestling down very well. Well, I was a little insulted by this "fundamentals" until I learned that this man was Henry Ordemann, a former holder of the world's heavyweight w r e s t l i n g championship--back shortly after :he Frank Gotch era." Is Awarded Gold Medal. Heneman also met several professional grapplers and Tony Stecher, Minneapolis wrestling promoter and brother of Joe Stecher, a former heavyweight mat champion. Heneman was awarded a gold medal on a blue ribbon in a formal presentation before a capacity audience which had just seen the championships decided. A photograph of the Mason Cityan, together with three other members of the Minnesota wrestling team, appeared in the Minneapolis Journal last week. The Mason Cityan's hopes for future honors in the wrestling realm are expressed in a jocular manner in his.closing sentence?--"On to Berlin--Gott in Himmel!"

Kepley, route 3, and Tony Weitzel, 639 Van Buren avenue southwest, were each fined $10 and costs Monday by Police Judge Morris Laird on charges of disorderly conduct.

FEBRUARY MOST FRIGID MONTH IN WEATHER RECORD Coldest 31 Dey Period From · Jan. 20 to Feb. 20 With Average of 7 Below. For those who had hoped to pass along to their grandchildren their recollection of a month in which the temperature averaged below zero, February was a disappointment. Its mean temperature was 1.8 degrees above zero, based on an average maximum of 10.6 degrees above and an average minimum of 1 degrees below zero. It still stands, however, as the coldest month within the memory of the oldest citizen hereabouts, with substantiation by government-tested thermometers. Twenty of the 29 nights in February had temperatures lower than zero. On eight days the mercury failed to rise above -the zero mark. Forty-two degrees, recorded on the afternoon of Feb. 23, was the highest temperature recorded and 26 below zero (28 at the sugar plant north of the city) on the morning of Feb. 5 was the lowest. That Was Cold Period. If you want to talk about a cold month, however, just refer to the 31 day period between Jan. 20 and Feb. 20, when the average temperature was exactly 7 degrees below zero in Mason City. There's quite a story to be told about snowfall this winter, too. Up to March 1 it had totaled 55.52 nches, which is only 13 inches less .ban the record-setting total of 6S.40 inches for the winter of 192829. The greatest snow level of this winter was 26.50 inches, recorded og the morning of Feb. 20. February contributed a total of 2S.T5 inches to the winter's snow total. This precipitated 2.15 inches of moisture, which is far above the 1.01 inch total which is normal for ie second month of the year. Fourteen days brought measurable precipitation. Ten days were isted as clear, 10 as partly cloudy and 9 as definitely cloudy. Records Given. The day to day weather records 'ollow: Max.' Min. Precip, Feb. 1 5 -14 . 3 .13 . 8 . 2 -4 -5 . 18 , 0 Teb.

The opening Thursday morning of Sears, Roebuck and company's new retail store at 23 East State street has brought to Mason City the story ot how this and surrounding counties of Iowa have been enriched by the sum of $9,281,920 that Sears, Roebuck and company has spent here during the five years of 1930, '31, '32, '33 and '34.

"It was not altogether news to us that Sears, Roebuck and company patronized the industrial concerns in this section of our state," commented Mr. Gordon, after reading the figures furnished on Sears Iowa expenditures. "It is one of the definite policies of Sears, Roebuck and com- pany to aid the development of industries in the states where iU stores are located. Much of the merchandise manufactured in this state and purchased by our stores is distributed in all parts of the country and we are proud of the fact that the Iowa products everywhere rank with the best."
