Kentucky Nut Coal, ton, W.G. BLOCK CO PHONE 56S DECKER TESTIFIES BEFORE SENATE COMMITTEE OPPOSES EFFORT FOR RESTRICTING STOCKYARD ACT Senator McArthur of Mason City and Patterson of Burt Also There. Jay Decker, president of Jacob E. Decker and Sons company, packing plant, returned to Mason City Saturday morning from Washington, where he testified at the hearing before the senate agricultural committee on the Capper bill to amend the packers and stockyards act. Mr. Decker told the committee that he was opposed to the bill because of the hardships that it would work on his company and all other packers operating away from the terminal markets. He said that his company bought 95 per cent of its livestock direct from the producer and that he spoke for all of the interior packers. "In my opinion this bill was written by the commission men for the sole purpose of forcing hogs to terminal markets," declared Mr. Decker. "Producers and small packers had nothing to do with it. It will play directly into the bands of the packers on the terminal markets. McArthur There Also. Senator William McArthur of Mason City also appeared before the committee in opposition to further restrictions of direct marketing. Another North lowan to testify before the committee was G. W. Patterson, Burt, who said he looked upon the entire question of direct marketing from the standpoint of the farmer. As a member of the Iowa state senate he has had occasion to familiarize himself with all matters that affect the farmers of his state. He emphatically declared that the bill under consideration was not a farmers' bill. It was a commission man's and stockyard man's bill and that the farmers of Iowa were not for it. Calls It "Half Baked." "If any real farmers are for this bill it is because they do not understand it," he said. -"It is a 'half baked' measure. This bill gives the secretary of agriculture the power to execute the packers and the packers are indispensible to the farmers who have livestock for market. I have observed that if there,is any real competition at the public stockyards, it is between us farmers. Why should the markets at Chicago, Omaha and Kansas City be preserved? I think the market that should be preserved is the direct market with the producer established by the packers themselves.. "I have never conceded that the public markets make the prices. The argument that Chicago stockyards make the price for direct buying is wrong. The law of supply and demand regulates the prices. The secretary of agriculture is making a thorough investigation of this whole livestock marketing problem and I think we should wait on that information before passing any more marketing laws." POLICE GET HIGH POWERED RIFLES Equipment Is Loaned Until Purchase of New Rifles Is Completed. Three high powered rifles have been loaned to the Mason City police department until a decision is made on the type of equipment needed 'for the department, according to E. J. Patton, chief of police, Saturday. · New types of equipment are soon to be on the market, according to the chief and city officials are waiting to see them. The three high powered rifles, together with the machine gun owned by the department, will offer ample equipment until the purchase of new equipment s made, according to Chief Patton. Belmond Man Waives on Charge of Driving While Intoxicated Hans Thompson, Belmond, waived jrellminary hearing Saturday morn- ng before John C. Shipley, police judge, on a charge of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and was bound to the grand jury. Thompson was arrested about 4 o'clock Friday afternoon when his truck filled with iron collided with a car near the Wolf junk yards on Fifth street southwest. Albert Gunderson, Mason City, was sentenced to 30 days in the county jail on a charge of intoxication.

PATTON, Pre». -MEET- JULIUS ESTESS Who is Managing the Palais Royal Store for the Second Time in His Career. From the sidewalks of New York to the manager's office of the leading ready-to-wear store of Rochester, Minn., Julius Eatess, manager of the Palais Royal store of Mason City, has seen many decided turns of business during his career. At the age of 16 he was a traveling salesman and at the age of 19 he was managing his own store in Wheel- Ing, W. Va. He has had a fling at nearly every line of business and is managing the local store for the second time in his career. He is only 35 years of age. Mr. Estess was born in New York City, June 1, 1898. It was in New York that he sold his first newspapers but he continued at this occupation when he moved with his- parents to Davenport at the age of 12 years. In Davenport he held various jobs, which included a position of bellhop in the Dempsey hotel. It was while on this job that he met a man who started him on his first road job. " Sells Music Boxes. The first of the Victor music boxes had been put on the market,^ the type with six records which would play when coins were inserted in a slot in the machine. Mr. Estess placed these machines in candy stores, hotels, etc., and then made the circuit at regular intervals to collect the coins. The boxes were placed on a percentage basis and Mr. Estess received what he said seemed a fabulous wage for his work. While riding on a train one day he met an elderly man who asked him if he were satisfied with what he was doing. During the course of the conversation this man advised Mr. Estess to get into the line of work he liked and to stay with it. Worked at Two Job«. On his return to Davenport, Mr. Estess decided to enter the ready- to-wear business. It meant about ?40 a week less than he was receiving so he decided to work at two jobs, the ready-to-wear business in the daytime and the music box route in the evenings. He began working for Mark Klein in Davenport and for three years he remained in the store which expanded and became JULIUS ESTESS --Photo by Russell known as the Klein Brothers store. At the age of 19 he took over the management of a store in Wheeling, W. Va., but he did not like the territory. In 1920 he went to work for the Palais Royal company. The Mathews Style shop in Mason City had closed and the Palais Royal bought it and reopened the store in 1921. Mr. Estess was the manager of that store. Returns to Mason City. HI health forced Mr. Estess to close that store in 1923. He moved to Rochester, Minn., where he underwent an operation and spent several months there convalescing. He then went into partnership with J. H. Friedman in the Lyman's store of Rochester. He sold out to his partner in 1929. and in 1930 opened a new store. This store was closed in 1933 and he came to Mason City to manage the Palais Royal store. Mr. Estess was married to Gertrude Oberlander of Waco, Tex., in 1928. He is more than an average golfer, likes sports of all kinds and is employed in the work he likes. Police Start Campaign on Traffic Violators 100 Drivers Given Red Tags for Overtime Parking in Restricted Business Districts. More than 100 drivers of automobiles in Mason City have reported at the police, station during the past week with red tags left on their cars when the cars were found parked more than one hour in the restricted districts of the city. The campaign will be continued said B. J. Patton, chief of police, Saturday. So far no one has been prosecuted but merely warned. Results have already been noted in the business districts, however, and drivers are appearing more careful. A checking system is being employed this year, according to Chief Patton, and the second time a person violates an ordinance, he will have to appear before the police judge. Fines Are $4.85. · "The fines this year will not be $1 affairs," said Chief Patton. "If the violators appear before the judge, it will be 54.85. We're not bringing them into court until their second offense, however," Chief Patton warned drivers to leave cars near the curb when parked. The city ordinance states that the wheels of the car shall be within 18 inches of the curb when the car is parked. Angle parking will be strictly forbidden in the business district. Double parking will not be allowed unless someone -Is left in the car who can move it if necessary, "The man who has parked his car properly should have the right to drive away any time he pleases, providing traffic will allow," said Chief Patton, "without having to wait for a double parker to remove his car." Warns Skaters. A warning was also sounded to children and near adults who are roller skating in the streets. Persons are risking their lives who do this, according to Chief Patton. An example of the negligence of observing -traffic rules by some drivers was shown by a first offender, woman driver, who failed to stop for the school sign at State street and Pennsylvania avenue, disregarded the sign at the corner of the Y. M. C. A.; turned west and went through the sign at First street northwest and Delaware avenue; stopped at Federal, avenue because the traffic was against her; turned north to Second street north; turned east and on to Delaware avenue again where she neglected the sign at the Congregational church and was finally picked up when she attempted to turn around on the intersection at Delaware avenue and First street southeast. NEW ISSUE OF STAMPS COMING To Commemorate Landing of "Ark" and "Dove" in Maryland. Commemorating the tercentenary of the landing of the "Ark" and the "Dove," at the place which is now St Mary's City, Md., with Maryland's first colonists, an issue of stamps is' being prepared according to information in the postal bulletin received Saturday at the local postoffice. The new stamps which will be of the 3 cant denomination, will be released to postoffices early next week and will be the first red stamps of that denomination to be printed by the government, according to local authorities. Representations of the two sailing ships and the Maryland coat of arms will be portrayed on the stamps. Although the first colonization of Maryland was in 1634, a William Claiborne of Virginia had established a trading post on Kent's Island in 1631, George Calvert, first Lord Baltimore, had obtained from Charles I of England a grant of the territory which comprises the.pres- ent states of Maryland and Delaware, and in 1632 this territory was conferred by charter upon Cecilius Calvert, second Lord Baltimore. The peace of the colony was disturbed repeatedly by Claiborne, who refused to recognize Lord Balti- more, and by Virginian and English Protestants under orders from Cromwell's parliament. Founded as a refuge for Catholics, Maryland became famous for its tolerance toward all religion. Annapolis, the present state cap- pital, which was originally known as Providence, was founded in 1649 by a band of Faritans from Virginia seeking refuge in Maryland. St. Mary's City was the first capital of the state. L. A. Moore Company Appointed Dealer for Sherwin-Williams The L. A. Moore Lumber company, 629 South Federal avenue, hag been appointed local dealer for the complete line of Sherwin-Williams products. The local concern, owned and managed by L. A. Moore, now has a large stock of Sherwin- Williams paints, varnishes, lacquers and brushes for various purposes. An advertising campaign was launched Friday in the Globe-Gazette. North Iowa Builders Exchange Has Meeting Final plans for the proposed building and home furnishing show were discussed at the regular monthly meeting of the North Iowa Builders exchange at the Eadmar hotel Saturday noon.

The local troops are busy with their booths and badges and the exposition promises to be bigger and better than ever before. WINNERS NAMED IN KITE CONTEST Heavy Wind Causes Problem to Boys; Fairer Wins in Tail Kite Division. Boys who entered kites Saturday in the annual kite flying contest sponsored by the Y. M. C. A. and Gildner Brothers' store had struggles with the heavy wind.. To avoid smashups, large tails were necessary and some boys used tails on their kites 50 feet long. Twenty-six boys entered the contest, held at Roosevelt stadium. In tail kite competition, winners in order were Richard Fairer, 238 Fifteenth street southeast; George Swaroff, 1603 North Federal avenue; Robert Gustafson, 324 Fourteenth street southeast; Lee Waggoner, 1538 North Fe'deral avenue; Ernest Runke, 1524 North President avenue; Buford Banks, 42 Lehigh row. The wind was too strong for box kites and only one boy succeeded in getting his aloft for any period of time without a smashup. Eugene Manning, 111 Sixteenth street southeast, was declared the winner. Luther Prosger, 109 Seventeenth street southeast, entered a. large' kite representing a man and won first in the division of tailless kites. Because of the strong wind, unusual heights were obtained by the kites, some of the boys letting out 1,500 feet of string. One boy's kite string broke after he had let out 1,200 feet of string and although he chased the kite for nearly a mile and a half, he was unable to catch up to it. Dan Allen flew a kite made in the shape of a shield. The majority of kites were three string. Good workmanship was noted in the kites At the Hospitals Mrs. Marion VanFleet, 1020 Tyler avenue northwest, was admitted to the Park hospital Friday for examination.

Cakewalk Champions to Defend Titles April 3 Legion Auxiliary Is Sponsoring 1934 Event. Cecil Douglas and Mabel Brown of Manly, 1933 Cakewalk champions, will defend their title at the Senegalese drum and bugle corps grand prize championship Cakewalk to be held at the armory Tuesday, April 3. This event is being sponsored by the American Legion auxiliary of Mason City. Thus far eight couples have entered the contest. The announcement has been made that no additional contestants will be accepted March 30. Walter Davis, Cakewalk veteran, will lead the Cakewalk, the program for which will include four vaudeville acts. Mrs. R. C. Patrick, who is in charge of the ticket sales, stated ex-, cellent response was being met in the advance sales. DOUGLAS AND MABEL BROWN The fan dance has finally reached Mason City. It was staged half apologetically at a stag party recently. It won't be surprising when the temperature becomes more appropriate, to hear about the organization of a nudist colony in this vicinity. A thousand pairs of roller skates were sold in the city in the last few weeks. There are those who look for the real stories of real life in the want ads of the newspapers. Bubbling joy, desperate hope or bleak despair are often hidden between a few choppy lines of over-abbreviated words. NEW MEANING OF SHIBBOLETH A new meaning of Shibboleth, Mason City's first name, is advanced by Judge A. H. Curnmings. The name, Shibboleth, was originally applied to a small stream emptying into the Jordan river in-Palestine, according to the judge. The first settlers on the site of Mason City knew their Bible history and called their settlement Shibboleth in recognition of the fact that in a similar manner Willow creek was a tributary of the Winnebago river, he points out Later in Bible history Shibboleth was used as the test word of the Gileadites for the defeated Ephraimites, who could only say Shibboleth. Apparently they were more particular about their pronunciation In those days. "The men who laid out the town didn't own one foot of ground at the time, but merely staked their claims," says Judge Cummings, re- fering to John B. Long, George Brentner and Joseph B. Long. "Long must have been the man to select the name as Brentner could neither read nor write, while Hewitt was mainly interested in Clear Lake. It was in September, 1854, that they attended a land sale in Des Moines and came into actual possession." Several names appear in the waiting list at the local library for James Joyce's "Ulysses." We wonder if the book would not have been forgot long ago if the censors had not tried to keep it from going to print. For more than 10 years the reading public awaited the outcome of the litigation and when a New York judge after reading the book several times, handed down a decision, allowing it free circulation everybody's curiosity was aroused. In the same manner the musical comedy, "Crazy Quilt," got the best advertising it ever had when the mayor barred from showing at Minneapolis. A St. Paul theater took it'and did a land office business, most of the patrons coming from Minneapolis. Human nature Is that way. NOT AFRAID OF RESPONSIBILITY Success is nothing more nor less than willingness and ability to take responsibility, according to Oscar Davis, who has just retired from the position of superintendent of the Lehigh Portland Cement company plant here. Mr. Davis who, by the way, is going to be missed by a large number of friends here, never laid claim to profound knowledge or even ability. But he never was afraid of taking responsibility and handling problems In his own way. Robert F. Allison, officer In charge of the navy recruiting station here, returned Friday from a trip through the western part of this district.

Old-Time BUDWEISER and M I C H L O B King of Draught Beer GREEN MILL CAFE QUOTA FOR BEET SUGAR GROWERS MAY BE BOOSTED Jones Says Revision of Act Will Probably Make It 1,550,000 Tons. WASHINGTON, March 24. (/P)-Chairman Jones (D., Texas) of the house agriculture committee told reporters today an agreement on a revision of the administration's sugar bill probably would be reached next week to give domestic beet sugar producers a quota of 1,550,000 tons. The measure has been pending before Jones' committee for several weeks. Drafted on a request of President Roosevelt, the bill provides a quota of 1,450,000 tons for the domestic beet and 260,000 tons for the Louisiana and Florida cane sugar industry. The allocation tq the domestic producers has been opposed and Jones in conjunction with farm adjustment administration officials, has conferred with representatives of the domestic industry with a view to reaching a final agreement. "While the figure of 100,000 additional tons for the domestic beet producers has been tentatively agreed upon by some of those interested, there are many other things yet to be worked out," Jones said. He added he was hopeful an agreement could be reached next week that would meet all reasonable objections in order that the bill could be reported by the agriculture committee for house action at this session of congress. Anna Mae Hughes Is Granted Divorce Here Anna Mae Hughes was granted a divorce from Rawleigh Hughes Saturday in district court and divorce proceedings were filed against Jay L. Beck by Hattie Beck. Mrs. Hughes, whose divorce was granted on grounds of desertion, was also given the right to marry within a year and to resume her maiden name, Anna Mae Soals. She had married Mr. Hughes in Mason City, Dec. 5, 1927, and lived with him till Dec. 10 the following year. Cruel and inhuman treatment and non-support were given as grounds 'for divorce in the petition filed by Mrs. Beck's attorney. The Becks were married here on Dec. 24, 1924, and lived together until Dec. 10, four years later. Dr.Gothern,M.D. Specialist Piles and other rectal diseases treated by ambulant methods.

Iowa's "young farmers' movement," which had its inception in Cerro Gordo and a few other North Iowa counties, is gaining momentum and will, in the opinion of agricultural leaders, spread rapidly in the next y-aar or two. The Cerro Gordo county club is one of 10 thriving clubs for young farmers between 18 and 25 years of age that have been active for some time. An eleventh one is now in the process of formation in Cass county. Has Large Field. "But I wouldn't be- surprised to see 40 such groups organized by the end of this year," said George W. Godfrey, agricultural assistant to President R. M. Hughes of Iowa State college. "There are about 20,000 'young farmers' in the state, and the number is increasing because our farm youth is no longer being absorbed by industry. In fact, it is returning from industry because of industrial unemployment." Because most of the clubs are composed of young men graduated from high school but unable to attend college, Mr. Godfrey suggests that "each organization map out and follow through a definite course of study on some phase of agriculture." Offers Training. The value of the organization, he believes, will lie in their ability to offer members training in agricultural technique and in understanding of the agricultural situation. Such training, he explains would enable young men to step from 4-H and other youth organization work into junior farmer work, "after which they would be better qualified framers and citizens." The 10 clubs which have been holding regular weekly meetings are in Black Hawk, Fayette, Floyd, Cerro Gordo, Franklin, Howard, Chickasaw, Winneshiek, Allamakee and Clayton counties. Extension service and county agents, working with Iowa State alumni in some cases were responsible for their organization. Services Held for Fred Kennison, Brother; of Mason City Woman Rites for Fred Kennison, brother of Mrs. Maude Richardson,- 243 Twentieth street southeast, Mason City, were held at Perry Sunday following his death at his home there Friday, March 16.

Burial was made at Violet Hill cemetery, and the Elks' ritualistic service conducted at the grave by members of the Perry lodge, who attended in a body, as did members of the Botherhood of Locomotive Engineers, a group of the latter acting as pall-bearers. Mr. Kennison spent many years with the Milwaukee railroad. He is survived by Mrs. Richardson and another sister, Mrs. Gertrude Golien of Clear Lake, as well as his widow, his brother, Frank of Muscatine, a grandson and a granddaugh-" ter.
