PATROLMAN AND POLICE OFFICER TALK ON SAFETY John Hrubetz, Edgar Faber Speak to High School Students. ' In "A" assembly Thursday morning John Hrubelz of the local police force and Edgar Faber of til Iowa State highway patrol spoke to the students on safety on tin streets and 'highways. According to Hrubetz accident, are caused by carelessness. People fail to slacken their speed whet the streets are icy and are unable to bring their automobiles to stop. Many accidents are alsi caused by the failure of the drive to signal properly when turning Hrubetz descVibed the correc signals as, for a right turn extend ing the arm bent at the elbow for a left turn the arm extended straight out from the shoulder aim in -signaling to stop, the arm straight, but dropped so that th fingers point to the street. The driver to the right always has the right-of-way. Faber, formerly of Valley Junction and now stationed in Mason City, stated that most accidents are caused by icy pavements, strong lights and failure to reduce speed Traffic schools and examinations have helped to cut down the number of careless drivers. Faber asked all to make their attitude ir 1937, "Life is very dear." Roberl Reese, patrolman, spoke in "B" assembly instead of Mr. Faber. The speakers were followed by a talkie entitled "The Other Fel- ow," showing scenes in Evanston, 11., where the traffic situation is he most efficient of any large ity.--N. J. B. Frank Parrott Praised in Fraternity Quarterly Has Character, Scholarship f his fellow humans. And, I have eard, believe it or not, that when ome of the students of M. C. H. . started to read biographies this ear for reports in American lit- -ature, one just couldn't get them stop. Surely, if the biographies ould speak they would say, "We m to please."--S. F. G.

Ave. GONE WITH THE WIND-- Surely, it is not utterly futile to believe that some day automobile accidents will be a thing of the past. We drivers of high school are responsible whenever we take the wheel. Dare we be careless for one second? If we are, human lives may be sacrificed. It is not enough to know the laws of the road, both pedestrians and drivers must obey the letter of the law. Not gone with the wind, but going is the name, Miss Ruth A. Irons, for on Feb. 13, the former dramatic .coach will become Mrs. Ernest A. Hayes. But Feb. 13! What courage that dynamic dramatic director has! Why not wait a day, 'Miss Irons, and be a human valentine? However, the thirteenth is not on a Friday. That's one consolation! Your many friends in M. C. H. S. want you to have the best of luck. And now, Miss Irons, faculty and students are with you 100 per cent, as of old ,in staging the "show" Feb. 13. So, name your cast. Yours, WIND O. PANE. and Leadership, Says Publication. - The Delta Kappa Epsilon quarterly for December '36 says concerning Frank Willis Parrott, graduate of M. C. H. S. in 1931 and of the class of 1937 of University of Wisconsin, "Frank Willis Parrott has character, scholarship, leadership and service!--the four cardinal requisites for a worth-while life. Added to these, he possesses many of those personable qualities which make him 'a real fellow.' I cite as proof of his sterling character his election to the White Spades and Iron Cross during his f i f t h semester at Wisconsin. His scholarship is of the highest. _^Freshman high honors, sophomore high honors, Phi Eta Sigma, Phi Lambda Upsilon (national honor- .ary chemical fraternity), Tau Beta Pi, and recipient of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers award to the man with the highest grades in the chemical engineering school. "His leadership is attested to by the several positions he has held within the house and among campus organizations. His service to Delta Kappa Epsilon must go untold at this time because of lack of space, but his service to the university is ""shown by the two letters he has won in varsity fool- ball and track numerals, won during his freshman year. He worked his way through college while playing football and maintaining his marvelous scholastic record." Parrott is a senior in the chemical engineering school and will be graduated in August '37. His grades printed in the journal number 31 A's and four B's. The various subjects listed are mathematics, chemistry, physics, mechanics, steam and gas, engineering administration, physical education, English, drawing, shop, machine design and chemical engineering. Mr. Parrott outstripped the whole high school with a 97.GO average in his senior year. He was class president.:--F.'D. All seniors of M. C. H. S. as well as their parents were compelled to think this week in terms of college or university education after graduation in June. Principal James Rae asked each senior to fill out a questionnaire Monday morning on plans after graduation. The object is to check the final half year's work of each student and give him, so far as possible, the right kind of advice. Photographs Live Forever R U S S E L L PHOTO STUDIO Nest J. C. Penney Co.

Love of the department of education of the State Jniversity of Iowa visited Mason ^ity junior college Thursday. Mr. Love is worlung on his Ph. D. de- ree and is making an analysis of he work of the public junior col- eges in Iowa in order to discover yhat services are given to educa- ion by these comparatively new rganizations. The Mason City in- titution, established in 1918, is the 'Idest in Iowa. Mr. Love commented: "The Maon City junior college has a plendid faculty and curriculum, "or any individual desiring the irst two years of college work, either for the completion of his general education or for prepara- lon for additional education he cannot do b'etter for himself than o stay in his home community and take advantage of the fine opportunity presented by the Mason City junior college."--R. K. L. Merton Overring Likes High School Groups "In my 15 years of entertaining I prefer high school groups," began Merlon Overring, professional entertainer, artist, magician and fabric painter, as he prepared his stage Wednesday morning. "No, I never had instruction in elocution. It must have been a natural knack in me which I desired to develop f r o m ; a young boy. 1 think entertaining can be developed if one really likes to be that sort of thing, but I have often observed that students schooled in elocution have a tendency to be a Jit mechanical. You must live your part and get out of yourself. It sounds trite but neverthqles true. "I give two or three performances a day, and have appeared in practically all states in the middle west. No, I have never performed abroad, but I don't doubt that American entertaining would have quite a field there. "I do not impersonate historical characters, but choose to imitate people that nmuse me from the by-ways of life. I present fabric paintings that best illustrate the poems I recite. "My work begins in September and closes at the end of the school term. Today my wife is in Massachusetts, my son at the University of Alabama, and I believe I'm in Iowa." High School Debate Team Places Third The debate team of the. Mason City high school with Martin Yo- seloff and Gerald Alter upholding the affirmative and Jane Hilton and Charles Knouse, the negative, won third place honors in the high school debate tournament, held Friday and Saturday at Luther college. They were accompanied by Coach Guy L. Crosen and one alternate, Bob Parrish. The Fort Dodge high school debate team captured first place and Decorah second. Following the tournament a reception was held in the tower room of the C. K. Preus gymnasium of Luther college. -Dr. O. J. H. Preus, president of the college, and Prof. David Nelson, Luther debate coach, addressed the debaters. The Mohawk debate squad met Algona in a non-decision practice match Wednesday evening. The squad journeyed to Manly Thursday for an assembly debate w i t h the high school and they faced Eldora training school in another practice meet here today.--D. L. S.

Dashing out on to the slippery pavement of highway 18, 6 year old Johnny Julson found himself racing lor lile with an oncoming vehicle. Johnny won that race due only to the sudden bravery o£ Arnold Hanson, 17 year old member o£ the police patrol department of the N. Y. A. movement. As he arose from the snowbank in which he'd been playing, the child laughed at the command of Hanson when the latter cautioned him to half. Seeing the figure make a dash before his car, the driver attempted to put on his brakes--but to no avail. Hanson rushed out to the scene and grabbed the child, pushing him back on to the sidewalk. "My escape from being struck was ;i matter of seconds," the youth stated when interviewed in the Cub laboratory. After the child, had been placed safely on the sidewalk, Hanson made an attempt to show him how lucky both .had been.--M. Y. I New Junior College.
