MANY CHANGES IN NEWSPAPERS IN TWO DECADES Extras Put Out to Announce Election of Taft Described. ----MEET S. L. RUGLANB Dean of Junior College Makes History His Hobby and Occupation; Says It Is Valuable Study. l Back in the days before radios, when there was no static to interfere just as election returns were to be announced, the daily newspaper could always be depended on. s "Extra! Extra! Taft Elected! Ohio Statesman and Favorite Son Sweeps the Country and Bryan 13 Buried for the Third Time. ' With these stirring head-lines, £ne Mason City Globe-Gazette an- aounced-in its special election extra of Nov. 4, 1908, the victory of William Howard Taft. According It; the several editions of the Globe- Gazette and the Mason City Times- Herald. The papers which have be- 'long-ed for some years to G. M. Woodruff, are becoming yellowed with age but they give the story of election days when men waited im- putlently on the street, or in the saloons, for the "Extra" that would - bring- the latest report from the election judges. Women Didn't Vote. Tne election papers are entirely lacking in any reference to, or appeal for, women. For, of course, m 1908 women had not yet ventured into the world of politics. But th3 men of Iowa were voting strongly for Taft. The issue of Nov. 3 states: ''The, men went to the polls in the city and voted for Taft today as if they wanted spring chicken continued on the bill of fare." The pages of the papers are filled with such bits of advice, wit and news as the following: "If you want a lemon, buy it; don't vote for it. , "Might as well go home early tonight and sleep Taft will be tas next president. ' "There will be a new deal in Iowa after Jan. 1 arid men who have been republicans all their lives can remain in the state without molestation. 'I "The weather started in like a good republican day. Here is hoping for many more of them." :· Many Changes Miule. ". There have been a number o£ outstanding changes in the make-up oi the-. Mason City paper during the "last 25 years.. T.ne society news has increased from a single column to « full page and more; sports hava found a definite place in the daily; the editorial page has been extended to a greater variety of uses and a number of features have been added. There have been other changes, both in the editorial and advertising fields. , Exchanges were an important item in the papers of a decade ago sjid the neighboring towns were furnishing a good deal of the iiews. At the same time Taft and Bryan were furthering their campaign, the people of Ottumwa appear to have been in a great split up because of the coming of "Billy" Sunday. The churches appealed to the people to give up society for five weeks, but "The Tourist club and the CHo cluVj say that they will go right on with their programs and study Brown-' ing, Shakespeare, Dickens or Elbert Hubbard, in fact, their regular work ifi preference to 'Billy' Sunday." Movies Five (Tents. '. Glancing at the announcements of the good old 5 cent movie, one cannot help wishing that time \yould turn back in its flight -- just for tonight. For according to the Times-Herald, "Moving pictures will be the attraction at the Wilson theater tomorrow evening. History is the hobby of S. L. Rugland, dean of the Mason City Junior college. It is not only his hobby it is his occupation, his one big in- ·terest among a myriad of interests gained -from much schooling, considerable travel, wide reading and some individual rumination on the pros and cons of existence. Mr. Rugland will not say that history is the most important subject in high school and college. Historians don't use superlatives. They know there can be no absolute superlatives. Mr. Rugland, however, has definite ideas on the value of history. Here is one of them: "The study of history may not enable a student to make more money, but if he has gotten into the field, it will assist him in understanding social changes and developments." Graduated at L,uther. Mr. Rutland's, knowledge in history was gained chiefly from Luther college, where he was graduated in 1922 and at the University of Iowa, where he afterwards did graduate work and received his master's degree. . J The college dean was bora in Barnesville, Minn., from where fit moved with his parents to Carpio N. Dak., where he took his high school work. After receiving his bachelor's degree at Luther in 1922 he went back to North Dakota, where he taught two years each at Hartland and Deering. Following this he was instructor in the preparatory department and of the freshmen class in history and English of his alma mater. In the year, 1928-29, Mr. Rugland attended the University of Iowa, where he was graduate assistant in European history. His thesis was on the Norwegion newspapers of the northwest and" is . an interesting study of the trends that are apparent in a foreign language periodicals as to influence of Immediate surroundings, the movements in the S. L. RUGLAND --Photo by Kirk native country and differences in various parts : of the United States. The thesis has evidence of a large amount of original research work and is considered at the university as a valuable contribution to the records of the pioneer developments of the middle west. Went to Europe. In the summer of 1925, Mr. Rugland, accompanied by two brothers, made a trip to Europe, where he visited England, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, and France. Stops were made in all of the principal cities of these countries. The longest stays wece made in the rural sections of Norway and in Paris. Some day it is Mr. Rugland's plan to complete his studies for a Ph.- D. degree in the field of history. He lives at 102 South Connecticut avenue.

Paul Faltisek Granted Divorce on Cross Petition Paul Faltisek, defendant in a separate maintenance action filed by Mrs. Niona Faltisek, was granted a divorce by Judge Joseph J. Clark on a cross petition Friday afternoon. According to testimony in the case the two were married at Clear Lake in July,, 1929. Some time ago Mrs. F--.lf:sek filed a separate main- ten=r.c - e petition and got an attachment of the property of her husband to the extent of $500. The defendant, who was repre- sented by John Senneff, then filed a counter claim, asking divorce on the grounds that Mrs. Faltisck had represented herself as a^ single girl at the time of marriage and that he now learned she had been married at least three times previously. While Mr. Faltisek was in the hospital in March, 1930, the defendant shot and wounded herself.

"They couldn't do it · and if they did they wouldn't sell them for 10 cents apiece.' The game warden was plowing thru roads blocked with snow to carry out orders issued "by the game deparment at Des Moines. A storm had' filled the direct road and Glanville was forced to go the long way around by Algona. The trip took four or five hours. The orders from Des Moines instructed Glanville to investigate at once the' case of a citizen who had trapped 300 musk- rats and was selling their hides out of season. Ruts. Not Plentiful. Now for many years muskrats, tho far from extinct, have not been plentiful enough around Buffalo Center to make -the capture of 300 an easy matter. Then too, the information from Des Moines said the hides were being sold for 10 cents apiece. At the time muskrat hides were worth ?1.25 apiece. When he arrived in town. Glanville proceeded with his investigation. After some time he found the citizen for whom he was searching. Severely the-game warden questioned the man, concerning his illegal sale of muskrat hides. And then, and only then, did the reason for the investigation break upon him. 20 Years Ago. It seems the Buffalo Center paper publishes a "Twenty Years Ago Today" column. In recent issue it had carried the story of the man and the 300 muskrat hides. Somebody at Forest City had seen the article and had rerun it in the paper of a neighor- ing town, but in some manner the "Twenty Year" head had been overlooked and the item was run as current news. Some alert person, interested in the preservation of game %vho knew the season on rats was closed, had clipped the article and mailed it to Des Moines. "I knew darn well there was something phony about that deal before I ever went up there," Glanville declared in' recounting the story. "No it has never been published before. I didn't feel much like talking about it then. I hate tp. handle cases 20 vears old." DEPUTIES OFFER HELP FOR FILING ME RETURNS Special Collectors to Visit North Iowa Centers, Aid Taxpayers.

LEAGUE Need for Wild Life Refuges Urged by Jack Miner, Naturalist. Members of the Cerro Gordo chapter of the Izaak Walton league are backing a proposal for the establishment of a wild bird refuge on the west end of Clear lake. The need for this refuge, particularly with the decreasing numbers of migratory fowl, has been emphasized by officers of the organization. A plea for steps to conserve wild life has been issued by Jack Miner, Canadian naturalist and owner of tha Jack Miner sanctuary, who spoke before large crowds in Mason City recently. Claims Destruction Increased. He said: "The migratory game birds, such aa ducks and geese, have been decreasing the last 25 years, as hunt- era with improved firearms and dee'per" studies .of destruction have increased, and I believe from my extensive travels and observations that there has not been one year durin°- the quarter of a century that hunters have not increased. Very true, they might have concentrated on a certain area for a year or so, but remember, we are now taking North America as a whole from the Atlantic to Pacific. I am in favor of prohibiting the use of live decoys, baited fields or I might say slaughter houses, where our migratory birds are fed for no other purpose than selfish destruction of our world wide heritage." Mr. Miner's statement continued with pointing out that if the birds could be fed and live decoys used in sanctuaries only, the sportsmen would have more of an equal chance at the overflow from the sanctuary protection system and birds would be more evenly distributed thruout America; Other Measures Included. The statement issued by Mr. Miner calls for other measures to prevent the decreasing numbers of the migratory game birds but his emphasis on the need for sanctuaries is wh/it local Waltonians are particularly desirous to promote. Officers of the Izaak Walton league have made inquiries from about the landowners on the section of the lake, where it has been suggested the sanctuary be established in regard to the purchase of the land. These landowners stated they would be willing to accept the appraisal value placed on the land by the government. · N EW ARRIVALS in Mason City L. F. Schol, formerly of Wellsdille, N.

"Certain things in the line of health work need to be done in Mason City," declared Dr. C. E. Dakin, health director. "The two big things are prevention work for heart disease and for tuberculosis. "Infant welfare work is being well taken care of here thru clinics and other means. "Luckily we have only a small amount of tuberculosis in Mason City. Tuberculosis deaths here run 22 to the 100,000 of population while the standard for the country is said to be 50 to the 100,000. Officers Co-Operate. , "Non-official health agencies ' should work with health officials," Dr. Dakin declared. "We have fine co-operation among health workers in Mason City." "The question is often asked, i 'why does not the state department of health extend the scope of its work to include a given subject?' The answer is that a restricted budget and limited personnel stand in the way of such expan- ,» sion. There are many pnases of ·'} public health work which should be ', carried out by the official body, but l',as yet the department has not had '.' the facilities with which, to in- ; . augurate the work. Here, then, i s ) ' the opportunity for non-official ,'e agencies to fill in the gap. Altho! j perhaps not required by law such I agencies should be under the ad- [. visory control of the state's official /' agency. .They should be counseled, hi aided, and abetted by the state de- ,1* partment of health to the end that k duplication and competition may be avoided. They should be encouraged to carry on in their respective lines' of endeavor until such time as the' official agency becomes, able to take' over the work, when they might ref ' tire and turn their endeavor to some^fl other phase. Such action would not^J cause them to cease other actlvi-", ties for there will 'be activities 1 -' which the' official agency cannoC'j conduct for a long time to come. Non-Official Agencies Work.,/ "Among the activities now operated by non-official ag( are health instruction in, prliua.-£-. and secondary schools, popuK"°, health education, mental hygiene,'] Cental hygiene, training of teachers ' snd health officials and anU-l tuberculosis work.
