Has Mason City any superstitions about the day? The employes at the First Na- :ional bank were going around with their fingers crossed. Yes, just two years ago John Dillinger and a car- oad of playmates visited them. So Friday the thirteenth brought neither pleasant reminiscences nor lappy anticipations for the members of the bank. All Squared Up. Chief Harold Wolfe and Capt. Leo Risacher of the police department and Sheriff J. M. Robertson were in a more jovial mood follow- ng a trip to Austin, Minn., Thursday, where they obtained a confession from a transient held there that cleared up several lumber yard robberies here. "Friday the thirteenth--that's my lucky day!" said Chief Dan Shire. 'I was married on that day--June, Friday, 13, 1908, at Davenport." Loses His Men. Max Riley, superintendent of city streets, was not so happy, however. He lost all his WPA workers, who have been engaged in shoveling mow most of the winfer. Others Look this as a hopeful sign however, that spring is here at last. Dog owners had long faces as they were reminded that spring was just around the corner, with a $3 city license due April 1 to allow a dog to run at large and a $1 county tax on male dogs and $3 county tax on females also due April 1--or pay the penalty. What Trice Success? Incomes were bothering some, who were reminded that Friday the thirteenth was all too near the final day of grace for filing federal income returns. But after a day of crossed fingers and caution about walking under ladders and meeting black cats, the height of something or other was to find the title of the evening's chief entertainment at two theaters gaudily spelled out in tinsel--"Here Comes Trouble." Will Give Demonstrations. CEDAR FALLS--Ruth Faison Shaw, internationally known teacher and exponent of the finger painting, will give two demonstrations for the public at Iowa State Teachers college on Wednesday and Thursday, March 18 and 19. IMPROVEMENT IN EMPLOYMENT IS EVIDENT IN CITY Better Weather Increased Run at Docker's; Brick Plant Opens. February was a hard month on Mason City's employment situation because of the seasonal trend in some industries and because blocked roads and paralyzed railroad traffic slowed down packing operations at Jacob E. Decker and Sons. The employment trend, however, was upward the first half of March with one of the units of the Mason City Brick and Tile company getting into operation and the run of hogs showing some increase with the opening of transportation facilities. The Northwestern States Portland Cement company planned to start Saturday on its regular annual repair ana replacements program which is expected to keep the plant down from four to six weeks. A large number of men, however, will be continued on the payroll for the repair work. The Lehigh Portland Cement company plant, which went down in February, is expected to get into operation when sufficient cement has been moved from its warehouses. Employment in Jowa industries increased 10.7 per cent in February as compared with the same month last year, the state bureau of labor reported Friday, and weekly payrolls increased 11.4 per cent. The February report, the bureau said, however, showed a decline of 1 per cent in employment during the month as compared with January. The average weekly wage for February decreased 0.4 as compared with the preceding month. Industrial groups showing employment gains in February as compared with January were listed as including textiles, 1.5 per cent; iron and steel, 1.6 per cent; lumber products, 1.5 per cent; and railway car shops. 1.5 per cent. Groups listing employment losses included food products, 4.1 per cent; patent medicines, 1.8; stone and clay products, 5.6; tobacco and cigars, 0.1; and miscellaneous industries 1.2. Reports from employers, the bureau said, showed nearly all businesses were handicapped by the bad weather but that general business tones are favorable for an upturn.
