Instead of electing 26 delegates and 26 alternates, as allotted to the county, the convention made the entire Cerro Gordo county representation delegates, each with a half a vote at the state meeting. To Head Delegation. Senator William McArthur was chosen the chairman of the delegation, with the following delegates. R A. Holman, A. J. Killmer, John L. Boedeker, Mrs. S. M. Decker, Charles H.

The resolutions drawn up by a :ommittee headed by A. J. Killmer maintained the recovery in economic conditions was "solely the re- ult of our great president's ef- ort." "Whereas four years ago the so- ial, economic and financial struc- ure of the United States and the state of Iowa was on a verge of :omplete collapse; agriculture was irostrate; thousands of hanks were losed and others were closing iaily; home owners were faced with mortgage foreclosure and the loss of ifetime savings; men, women and hildren were on the verge of star- ation; the country and the state were without vigorous and fearless .eadership," the resolution read. "Whereas today the nation throbs with a new prosperity; factories again hum with industry; agricul- :ure once more flourishes; the farmer is assured of fair profit on his labor and investment; money can be invested with security or banked with safety. The hungry have been and are being fed arid clothed; useful occupations have replaced forced idleness; the average man and woman can once more look forward to the future with, faith and hope. Dates to Inauguration. "Whereas this great change in the nation dates back to the inauguration of President Roosevelt in 1933, and, in our opinion is directly and solely the result of our greal president's efforts to bring abou readjustment which favors all o: our citizens, instead of a few, and is directly attributable to his fearless and courageous leadership and guidance. "Therefore be it resolved that we re-affirm our loyalty to Presiden Franklin D. Roosevelt, who through his sympathetic idealism has steered the ship of state from troublesome into smooth waters and that we re dedicate ourselves to a continuation of the struggle waged in behalf o human rights against property ngbts since the time of Thomas Jef Terson. Unity Needed. "Be it further resolved that this convention place itself on record as being unalterably opposed to di vided allegiance and that we condemn in no uncertain terms the efforts of enemies and borers without, who would minimize the effort and nullify the progress made during the past three years." Resolutions also were pass-ed extending condolence to three prominent members of the party unable to be present at the convention. E G. Dunn and James H. Brahney Mason City, and James J. Murphy Rockwell. Other members of the resolutions committee were Mrs. Marek Alice Philips, William B. Danforth and C. E. Wright. The nominating committee was headed by Leo J Carle. Elected Chairman.

' "Quick " Williams to Run for Sheriff Nomination --Photo by Lock "QUICK" WILLIAMS Announces Candidacy on Republican Ticket. C. A. "Quick" Williams, who served several months last summer as deputy sheriff patrolling highways in the county, Saturday announced his candidacy for the republican nomination for sheriff. Mr. William's announcement raises the number of candidates to six. four republicans and two democrats. Already in the race for the republican nomination are Harry Sondergaard. county supervisor; J. E. Buchanan, city' detective, and Walter D. Conn, former deputy sheriff. Cal Dwan, present deputy, and Tim Phalen are the aspirants for the democratic nomination. Mr. Williams, who lives at 3l3 Washington avenue northwest, has been in the delivery business here for 14 years. He has two children in the high school. While serving as patrolman, Mr. Williams also performed other ~* duties connected with the office of PATTERSON HAS ORGAN INSTALLED Will Be Used in Funeral Services; Equipped With 219 Pipes, 20 Chimes. Installation o f - a new pipe organ at at the Patterson funeral home, 322 Washington avenue northwest, has been completed, according to an announcement by L. W. Patterson, and will be used in services at the home in the future. The instrument is a Wicks organ, manufactured at Highland, 111., and is the only one in the city, beside the Episcopal church organ, that :as chimes. The instrument is equipped with 219 pipes and 20 chimes; is electrically operated; snd has been commented upon by some of the outstanding organists of the city as having excellent tone quality. A special representative from the actory installed the instrument and uned it. A partition of the office li the Patterson funeral home was emoved and another room added to allow for the new organ, which may je heard in any part of the home ven when played softly as required if many hymns. The visible part of the instrument s finished in walnut. Only the ;eyboard, pedals and bench, giving .he appearance of a modern piano, may be seen. The pipes and chimes are concealed behind a grilled :creen. An informal concert will be played by prominent organists Sunday afternoon, starting at 2 o'clock and continuing through the afternoon and the home will be open to the public, according to Mr. Patterson. deputy sheriff. North Iowa Boys to Leave for Great Lakes Naval Station Bight North Iowa youths will leave Mason City Monday for Des Moines, enroute to the Great Lakes naval training station Officer 0. O. Cleveland, navy recruiting agent in North Iowa, announced here. The boys, who have fulfilled all but their final formal enlistment requirements, are Orvil J. Clemenson and Emmett A. Show, Manly; George A. Crowder and Robert W. Dana, Britt; Frank Vulk, Osage; Donald W. Jenkins, Clear Lake; Byron A. Huxsol, Rockford. and Robert G. Rourke, Charles City. All young men interested in joining the navy were urged to contact Officer Cleveland at his offices here on the second floor of the Federal building. New men are being accepted every day, the agent said. Lindsay Suspended for 30 Day Period Lieut. Lester J. Lindsay was demoted to the grade of fireman first class and was suspended from duty for 30 days for being under the influence of liquor and conduct unbecoming an officer, according to Chief Dan Shire of the fire department Saturday. Lindsay was fined $10 and costs Saturday by Police Judge Morris Laird on a charge of Intoxication. John K. Cunningham was appointed as acting lieutenant to fill the vacancy caused by the demotion of Lindsay. Francis P. Tinney was taken from the watch desk to complete the salvage company and Alfred B. Hesse was taken from the civil service list for the watch desk. CHILDREN HEAR STORY OF BIRDS And Other Stones Too While Their Groups Waited to Hear Mrs. Andrick. Impromptu stories were told all over the library Saturday morning while group? of children waited for Mrs. G. S. C. Andrick to talk to them about birds that are migrating now from the south land. The first group that Mrs. Andrick talked to in the Story Hour room at the library numbered 170 children; the second group in the assembly room downstairs, 109, and even one of the main reading rooms had to be pressed into service to take care of 135 children who came to hear the bird talk. There were some 20 or 25 who were too late to get counted but those who arrived on time voted by schools in order to see which school library is to have the gift bird book for their collection. Miss Dorothy Peterson took the count by schools and 414 children were present when the count was made. A few came later, but there was no way to correct records, because everyone was so busy telling stories and helping the children. Miss Avis Gregory, children's librarian, told the "First Humming Bird" three times and Miss Lydia Margaret Barrette told the Hans Christian Anderson story of "The Ugly Duckling" to the three groups and read Celia Thaxter's poem ''Wild Geese." Miss Carol Nesje told the "Tongue Cut Sparrow" and bird records were played and replayed. Miss Gregory had arranged displays and borrowed some stuffed birds in which the children were much interested. Some of the chil- "dren themselves brought old nests to show the others. Bird books were much in demand and it is hoped that out of some of this interest bird clubs may develop. Musical Numbers Are Presented at McKinley Musical numbers furnished by Carleton Stewart and movies under (he direction of Evron Karges of the Y. M. C. A. comprised the program at the McKinley Community center Friday evening. Dorothy Evans was the accompanist. The following solo numbers were given by the students: "Beelzebub," Catozzi'. tuba. Bob Collen: "Fan- taisi Melancolique," Reichert, flute, Bob Major'; "Solopour Hautbois." Paladilk'e. oboe. Homer Hockenberry; "Grande Concerto," Grate, trombone, Lloyd Nichols and "Carnival dc Venice," Jean, clarinet, Bill Pappas. AT THE HOSPITALS Evidently the Mason City Kiwanis club isn't as skilled in the game of politics as the local Methodists, who the first Monday in April get a working majority of the city council. Joining their associate, W. S. Wilcox, will be H. C. Brown and Ray Pauley. It is understood that Arleigh Marshall, who also joins the council this year, could also be counted for Methodist support part of the time. In contrast to this is the Kiwanis club, which had six candidates in the field for the school election, but Kiwaman B. A. Webster was the only one of the organization to be elected. OR WAS IT RIP VAN WINKLE THAT CAME TO TOWN? It was possibly the mild weather --or perhaps the nonchalance of the deputies--that threw Herbert Hirsch, proprietor of the Mason City Fur Shoppe, off guard, but he walked into the sheriff's office Tuesday morning and asked in all seriousness, "Is Jerry around?"- THEY HAVEN'T BURNED ANY BUILDING YET The story is told that a decade or more ago, a. certain section of the city was afflicted quite severely with some contagious disease among the school children. In order to make certain that the disease be stamped out, the school board at a meeting had under consideration a motion to burn all the books in the school building of that section. Just as the presiding officer was about to put the motion J. E. E. Markley, a member of the board, walked in. He was informed about the measure before the board. "May I offer an amendment?" he asked. The chairman nodded his assent. "I would amend the motion to the effect that we also burn the schoolhouse," said Mr. Markley. The amendment apparently lost for no school buildings have been burned. "When Shakespeare said there \vas nothing in a name he was rites," writes C. Holbrook (T. Pipe to you) from Green Bay, Wis., where ho. has been train dispatching for the Chicago North Western for several u'ecks. "There is no green around Green Bay." BELIEVED IN I'REPAREDNESS. It probably wasn't just an accident that Sheriff J. M. Robertson had a pair of handcuffs in his pocket when he came into the courtroom about the time the judges were about to hand down a decision in the Breese matter. Courtroom attaches recalled an incident not so long ago when the complainant in this case, because a judge handed down a decision against her, called him such names that Mason City lawyers are still wondering how she escaped contempt of court.
