With the announcement by the three retiring officers that they would not be candidates for reelection to the Mason City school board, three new candidates filed nomination papers in the office of R. L. James, secretary, Thursday. The three who are candidates for the hoard are T. M. Stevens of the Stevens Shoe company; Ralph Wiley, assistant cashier of the First National bank, and R. E. Robertson, county engineer. The retiring; members are Willis G. C. Bagle}', president cf the First National bank; Frank C. Goodman, formerly operator o£ the Kemble greenhouse, and E. H. Wagner, president and manager of the Midland Investment company. On Board 15 Years. Two of these, Mr. Bagley and Mr. Goodman, have been on the board almost continuously for the past 15 years and had a part in the stupendous expansion of the school system that took place in the decade from 1915 to 1925, when six structures were built and three others remodeled. Mr. Wagner has been on the board nine years and had a part in the later development of this expansion orogram. Nearly 52,000,000 was spent for new buildings and remodeling: of structures while these men were on the board. New construction consisted of the high school building, and Monroe, Jefferson, Wilson, Harding' and Madison grade schools. The Washington, McECinley and Roosevelt buildings were remodeled and the central administration structure rebuilt following a fire. Bought Roosevelt 1'ark. One of the outstanding transactions of this period was the purchase of the Roosevelt school building and a 29 acre plot which under the general supervision of Mr. Goodman has been landscaped into a beautiful park. Mr. Goodman, furthermore, has had general charge of a landscaping^ program for all the school buildings, the grounds of which have evolved into beautiful lawns set off with decorative shrubbery. Mr. Bagley, who, of course, has been interested more in the financial phases of the board activities, has been president of the board almost continually. Since the completion of the build-- ing- program the board has directed its efforts to the reduction of the indebtedness and the tax millage, both of which have undergone a gradual decrease in the past few years. The bonded indebtedness of the school district is now $607,000. A total of $17.000 of this will be retired this spring. The millage has crept downward from 98 to 82.1 mills. The school election will be held March 9. Mrs. Blaise Tells Kiwanians of Methods Used by Local League. Activities of the Mason City welfare league were explained by Mrs. Mabel Blaise, local secretary, at the meeting of the Kiwanis club Thursday noon in Hotel Hahford. She cited several cases, outlined the methods which are being used here and asked co-operation for her work. Mrs. Blaise said that in the old method of charity families were given as little aid as possible when they asked for it and it was hoped they would not make another request. By the new system, she continued, investigations are carried on and rehabilitation work is done. Casos Are Investigated. "We handle each person as a case," Mrs. Blaise explained. "In rather a common complaint, and we have the remedy--unlimited casii always available to loan on easy payments at legal interest rate. UNITED RETIRING WILLIS G. C. BAGLEY FUANK C.

Then we make a diagnosis, attempting to find the root of the trouble. With the exception of this winter most persons who first came for the dole are now self supporting. "In some cases, however, the present need is urgent and we give aid before investigating-." Mrs. Blaise said that the league did not want to know what other organizations or individuals were doing for families but that the league would liUe to know if cer- taih persons were cared for so that duplication could be avoided. Sewing Hoom Established. The establishment of a sewing- room in the basement of the administration building, Mrs. Blaise stated, has made it possible to mend garments which are'donated. Garments which have been mended, she said, are much more likely to be used as much as possible. Mrs. Blaise then listed the differ-* ent activities of the league, showing what had been done for 160 families in January. Of this number 65 receive rehabilitation service only. She said that altho the league had not signed up for travelers' aid work, this service could not be refused whenever it was needed. Then Mrs. Blaise described several cases. George Harrer, who was program chairman, presided at the meeting in the absence of President James Rae. Dr. Harold Jennings was a guest of the club. LAW IS HERE, TATES COMING TO ARMORY Mason City Singled Out for Individual Study by Wickersham Group. By RADFORD E. MOBLEY Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, Feb. 20.--Mason City was singled out for individual study by the Wickershaw law enforcement commission, it was learned here as the mass of evidence used by the commission In formulating its report was laid before the senate. A special report on Iowa, compiled by former Prohibition Commissioner James M. Doran, gave particular attention to Mason City, concluding that the section in the vicinity of that city was probably the "cleanest" in the northern district of the state despite the alcohol interests. Two Liquor Outfits Here. The Doran report quoted the deputy administrator in charge of the northern Iowa judicial district as saying there were two liquor outfits in Mason City, one of which centers around a man by the name of Roy Gray, and the other, supplying the Greeks, around Lui Gazas. "These two outfits with their connections handle about all the alcohol there and alcohol is all there is in Mason City. There are' no stills;" the report states. The deputy administrator pointed out that a peculiar condition existed in Mason City, since it was the only city in the state which had many Greeks. He said, however, that he had been hitting them rather hard, and had landed them in court both during last year's term and during the preceding one. Have Pulled Out. "The rest of the Greeks, working in about six counties in that locality, are puzzled and have pulled out," be said. In comparing the liquor situation in various sections and cities of the state, the deputy administrator said: "Waterloo is the hardest nut to crack in Iowa. Both the sheriff and the entire police force are involved with the liquor organization, and the only ones caught are the small, independent operators." Intoxication Charges Made Against Two Men Cecil Cage, Valley Junction, forfeited a .'SIS bond when he failed 10 appear at police court Thursday morning to answer a charge of intoxication, Charles Garige, Mason City, was fined $10 and costs on a charge of intoxication.
