Colflesh as a lad of 7 years trudged up the entrance steps at the Odd Fellows orphanage here and looked for the first time upon the fireplace before the front door, be probably had no thought that some day a large portrait of himself would have a position above that fireplace, alongside a giant three-link emblem so dear to all who are reared in the home. Yet this is the very thing that has come to pass. This was the scene in front of Bob Colflesh Monday forenoon when as a candidate for governor he hobbled up those beloved steps and walked into the large brick orphanage where he lived his boyhood. He was paying an unannounced call at the home as he always does when in the vicinity of Mason City. All else in the reception hall was unchanged--the fireplace, the emblem and, to .the right, the huge grandfather clock placed there many years ago as a memorial to J. C. Longueville of Dubuque, leader of the Odd Fellows of Iowa in the nineties. Only the portrait of himself had been added to the scene. Listed as "Number 72," In a giant record book, the advent of the man who at 34 years seeks the governorship of Iowa was noted in a prosaic way. He was listed as No. 72 among the children who had been admitted to the home. A further notation was that his father had been a member of Goldleaf lodge of Des Moines. With him on his arrival that hot August day. were three sisters, PLAN FOUR YEAR JUNIOR COLLEGE Waldorf Trustees Decide on New System to Be Used in Education. FOREST CITY, March 26--Waldorf college at Forest City will be organized as a four year junior college, according to a decision of the board of trustees in session last week* This new type of organization, advocated by the University of Chicago, includes the third and fourth years of high school and first and second years of college. Many of the leading junior colleges of the country are now organized on this basis, but Waldorf is the first school in the Norwegian Lutheran church to adopt this plan. In line with this change the first year of the academy will be discontinued next year. Minnesota Program to Help Farm Youth Planned by Committee FARIBAtTLT, Minn., March 26.-Definite plans for a statewide program to aid the farm youth of Minnesota will be worked out by a central committee composed of 4-H club chairmen of every Junior Chamber of Commerce in the state, working with T.. A. Erickson, state 4-H club chairman, and Dr. A. M. Fields, head of the American Future Farmers' association, it was announced by Ed Kvasnicka, Austin, state Junior Chamber 4-H club work chairman. The decision to foster a program which will stress recreational- activities including sports, music and dramatics as a means of helping the farm youth appreciate farm life at its best was made at a discussion meeting held recently at the Fari- bauit hotel with Luke Vassar, Faribault Junior Chamber 4-H club committee head, and his group members, as hosts. Representatives from J u n i o r Chamber groups at Minneapolis, St. Paul, Owatonna, Northfield, Austin, Albert Lea, Montgomery and Faribault attended. R. W. COLFLESH It was from this picture of Mr. Colflesh, a late sitting, that the large portrait at the orphanage was made. Adella,:12, Marie, 9, and-Anna-R-, 4. To Adella, the oldest, was assigned 70, the lowest of the serial numbers, and her name appears first in the book. Just as unspectacular is the rec- crd with respect to the lad's departure from the home on April 9, 1914, after almost seven years of mothering from Mrs. Grace Lewis, a beloved matron of the home who came to a tragic death in a Rock Island flood wreck at Packard, near Greene, in June, 1915. The home was built in 1902 and it was only a few months after its rebuilding in 1906, the result of a fire the previous year, that the four Colflesh children arrived. OH the Record. The big book referred to doesn't contain any suggestion of the enormous and lasting influence seven years of residence had on this tousle- haired lad who at the age of 17 answered the call of his country and sacrificed one of his legs. The cryptic entry in that book couldn't portray the sentiment toward the home developed in this clear-eyed lad destined to become department commander of the American Legion, a sentiment which manifested itself a few years ago when through the good offices of Mr. Colflesh, as a well known Des Moines attorney, members of the band, in charge of Supt. A. W. Stubbs, from the Odd Fellows home were honored guests at the state fair. All of the youngsters were gathered about a prize baby beef while an Ames professor explained its points of superiority. Mr. Colflesh stood in the background, a tear glistening in his eye. His mind had turned back a few years when he too had been the beneficiary ot a lodge's admirable kindness. Pride Matches Gratitude. "Why was Mr. Colflesh crying?" asked .one little boy of Superintendent .Stubbs as they sat together on their way home that night. "I don't know for sure, Tommie," said the superintendent of the home, "but I rather guess he was thinking of the kindness bestowed on him as a motherless boy." The portrait in the front lobby of the home and the visit of a large delegation from the local home al Hampton recently when Mr. Col-flesh was the principal speaker at an Odd Fellows meeting constitute evidence of a pride m "one of our boys who has made good" comparable with this gratitude in Bob Col flesh for a home and a mother which otherwise would have been denied him. 7 Per Cent Increase in Clarion Teachers' Wages Made by Board CLARION, March 26.--A general wage increase averaging about 7 per cent was decided on by the Clarion board of education when it re-elected every member of this year's faculty. C. J. Christiansen, superintendent, was given a three year contract. Mr. Christiansen who has been here only two years, was formerly hired each year.' The same curriculum will be offered next year, according to the board's present plans. A school nurse, hired this year for only a short tune, on the regular school staff next year for the full nine month term. Granville Smith was elected school board president. $181,096 Is Paid-to Iowa Wheat Farmers in. Benefits of Cash WASHINGTON, March 26.

Helgen and Missionary Give Talks at Waldorf FOREST CITY, March 26.--C. B. Helgen, alumni secretary at St. Olaf college, addressed the Waldorf student body Thursday morning. He is a former president of Waldorf college. Sister Christina Johnson, a missionary from China, gave an interesting account of mission life Friday morning.

DANCE AVALON BALL ROOM Sunset Inn, Manly TUBS., MARCH 27 Al Menke's Orchestra SAT., MARCH 31 Ray Keyes and His Orchestra Big Easter Dance MONDAY, APRIL 2 Ladies 35c Gents 40c At Mason City THEATERS By H. J. P. CLIFF EDWARDS, DUBANTE AND VALLEE You'd be surprised what an effective trio Messrs. Edwards, Durante and Vallee form in George White's "Scandals" a la moving pictures. Aside from almost anyone's distaste for the dying calf expression behind which Vallee masks his real feelings, if any, every bit of this picture is thoroughly and enjoyably entertaining. The chorus numbers are excellent, and the plot element, which has been such a nuisance in most screen musicals, is nicely de-emphasized. Watch for Iliff Edwards' number when he steals Charles Laughton's thunder as Henry VHr, and don't miss the words in the songs.

The only weak spot in the picture is Charles (Buddy) Rogers, but you forget about him when James Dunn goes through his Daniel boone skit with Cliff Edwards and when Lillian Roth sings "Eadie Was a Lady" and Cliff Edwards strums his uke and sings to "I Never Took a Lesson in My Life" and "I'm a Night Owl." * * ' # "This Side of Heaven," the latest Lionel Barrymore picture, starts a three day run Wednesdav at the Cecil theater.
