TWENTY-FOUR MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 15 ·! 1934 4T GOT JOBS IN FEBRUARY, SAYS LOCAL CHAIRMAN 28 Men, 19 Women Placed in Private Employment in Month, Claim. ''· A. M. Schanke, chairman of the Cerro Gordo county national reemployment committee, Thursday stated that 28 men and 19 women ·were placed in .private employment and with'public works contractors during February in Cerro Gordo county. · Hans C. Pfund, director of the Iowa National Re-employment service at Des Moines, stated 4,134 persons consisting of 3,675 men and 459 women -were placed in gainful employment during the month of February in the state of Iowa. Of these persons 3,048 obtained regular employment, and 1,086 temporary employment. · In Disrepair. In both urban and farm areas, 3h6mes have been allowed to fall into disrepair and the revival of financial stability is an incentive for the home owner and farmer to clean up, paint up and repair property. Activities of the federal government nave permitted mortgagors ot homes to refinance and obtain money for needed repairing, repainting and for other improvements. . Millions of dollars have been pourned into the channels of agriculture, business and transportation ·with resultant revival of purchasing power for needed products ana materials, and have increased the demand for labor. Urged to Confer. . Home owners who plan repairs or Smprovemeuts to their properties are urged to call upon the National Re-employment office for qualified labor to do such work. The private employer is also urged to .confei with national re-employment office managers about needed new personnel. Many expert qualified clerical and skilled workers arc available in re-employment offices and an excellent opportunity is offered to the employer to procure specially skilled help while it is available. The co-operation of local boards of supervisors, mayors of cities ana chambers of commerce is urged by Mr. Pfund to set "improve your home" programs under way while materials are lower in price, ana ·while adequate labor is available. Such campaigns will be of no material assistance in providing seasonal employment to such persons as have not obtained employment with revived agriculture and industry.

That the .Wprld.war Is the influence most responsible for the economic ' headache ' ' through' " which America and the world are now passing is a view expressed by George E. Roberts of the National City bank of New York in a letter the Globe-Gazette's editor received this week. Mr. Roberts, now employed as economic adviser for the great New York bank, was reared in Iowa. He was editor and publisher of the Fort Dodge Messenger in the early days and in 1896 his masterful answer to th eBryan and Coin silver money theories won him the position of director of the mint under President McKmley. Others Have Their Problems Too, In a previous communication, Mr. Roberts dispatched an article written by a Kansas wheat farmer in which doubt was expressed as to Gen. Howard M.

OP)--Three men carrying sawed off shotguns leld up Victor Johnson, oil station attendant, here at 2 a. m. today and scaped with approximately ?25. whether any government plan could insure prosperity. The Globe- Gazette's farm editor was asked to give his reaction to the viewpoint presented and in doing so referred to what he believed to be some peculiar economic disadvantages which confront the farmer and not other industries. It is to this contention that Mr. Roberts addresses himself in the fore part of what is reproduced herewith: "The fact is that if farmers know of the plight of the other industries, they would not feel quite so badly about their own situation, for everybody has been in the same plight, Unbalanced by World War. "The real explanation of the situation is that our complicated, modern industrial system, was thrown badly out of balance by the war and has not been able to readjust itself to normal conditions largely because of the frantic and misguided efforts of all classes to proted. themselves without regard to the cost of their efforts to everybody else. "Ths nation was drunk with prosperity and now is paving the inevitable bill. Nobody in particular'has been responsible for the deflation. "The war was primarily responsible for the great inflation and the deflation resulted from the derangements in production and trade which followed it. · Drectly Attributable to War. "I think it unfortunate that the CALLS CANNING 8IC ADVENTURE Mr». Fullerton Points Out Merits of Preserving Farm Products. By MRS. DICK FTJLLERTON Hollyhock Farm Canning' has always been a hobby of mine even long before I demonstrated .cold pack canning at the North Iowa fair in 1913. But since canning in tin, It is not only a hobby but a bright and shining adventure. When I was a girl, one of the fact is not more generally appreciated that this depression with all its human suffering and wreckage of fortunes, is directly chargeable to the war. The violent changes in production and trade, In -wages and prices, the rage of speculation and the vast increase of indebtedness could not have occurred but for the pressure of war demands. "The great lesson of the period since 1914 is that war is an anachronism in modern, highly organized society. "All of the trouble has arisen from the Impact of war upon our ecoonmic system and the attempts to subordinate the law of supply and demand to arbitrary control." most slurring things that could be said of any housekeeper was, "Oh,' she feeds her family out of tin cans and paper sacks." Now it is a wise housekeeper who has on her pantry shelves tin cans filled with a variety of foods ranging from soups, meats and vegetables to puddings, and this is easily possible with the aid of a tin can sealer. Good for Cold Packing. For the old fashioned method of canning from the open kettle of fruits, the glass cans can be used nicely but for cold packing meats, vegetables and fruits nothing can squal the tin. I would no more think of cold packing in glass now than my husband would think of harvesting his grain with' a scythe. In canning in tin all the delicious flavor is sealed in at once. In glass the cans cannot be sealed tight until they are removed from the water bath and a-great dear of the flavor has already been lost. I think we have canned nearly every vegetable that will grow in this country. As to meats, we keep adding new varieties every year. The cured ham is always a favorite. That is always canned just as soon as it's cured right. (You should hear our guests exclaim over our wonderful breakfast bacon. We take it out of the cure, wash it and hang it to dry. Then we have it sliced with an electric slicer, pack it raw into quart tin cans % full. Fill up with hot lard and seal. It's stored in a kitchen cupboard and fried when we open it. I've kept it eight months that way and never lost a slice. Writes on Can. Chicken is another fine thing to have on hand, all ready for salads, sandwiches, creaming, chicken pie or anyway you wish. I love to experiment with my canning. Tin is such fun because you can write on the can with a pencil everything you did. If it's a success you have the whole story. This year the most outstanding experiment was canned pi- mentoes. When I can in -glass I do it all alone but when I can in -tin all the family is interested and willing to help. Children of 10 or 12 can do it as well as anyone. There's a warning or two though --you can't take out of cans anything better than you put in. Everything must be strictly fresh and you must follow directions. There can be no guess work as to the time of cooking. But the compensation is wonderful--the best food there is to feed to your family. Fifth Station Opened.

Guaranteed Thousands of Pile sufferers do not know that the cause of Piles is in- :ernal--bad circulation of blood in the lower bowel. This is the scientific truth about Piles--the real reason why salves and suppositories do not give lasting relief, why cutting does not remove the cause. Your itching, bleeding or protruding Piles will only go when you actually remove the cause. External treatments can't do this--an internal medicine should be used. HEM-ROID, the prescription of Dr. J. S. Leonhardt, sold by good druggists everywhere, succeeds because it stimulates the circulation, drives out congested blood, heals and restores the affected parts. So why waste time on external remedies or worry about an operation when Michael Drug Co., invites every Pile sufferer to try HEM-ROID with guarantee of money-back if not joyfully satisfied with the help one bottle gives.
