Frank Ball, manager of the Iowa state employment office at Mason City, serving Cerro Gordo county, Saturday announced that an arrangement has been made between the state unemployment conmen- sation division and the stale employment service where employment offices throughout the state shall be available as information centers to employers of eight or more employes on hjw to fill put employer's summary contribution reports lor the calendar year 1936 which are required from such employers by the unemployment compensation commission. The final date for return of the reports is Feb. 15, 1937. A number of employers have already asked fox- help, Mr. Ball stated. Mr. Ball pointed out that training conferences of employment office managers were held at Sioux City, Des Moines and Cedar Rapids on Wednesday, Feb. 3, and at Council Bluffs and Burlington on Thursday, Feb. 4, so that managers can give information to employers about the blanks. Atlenelcfl IWcelingr. William S. Barnes, field supervisor for the employment service, and J. Charles Craw ley, assistant legal counselor for the unemployment compensation division, were in charge of the Sioux City and Council Bluffs meetings, B'ranlc E. Wenig, director of the employment service, and Louis Schneider, counsel for the unemployment compensation division of the Des Moines meeting, which was attended by Mr.'Ball, and Benjamin W. Robinson, supervisor for the employment service, and Cap!. Fred C. Tandy, supervisor of field men for the unemployment compensation division of the Cedar Rapids and Burlington meetings. More than 4,000 Iowa employers are expected to flood the Iowa unemployment compensation commission offices by the return of as many summary contribution reports and remittances within the next few days, the commission announced. Under the Iowa law this tax is now due, and becomes delinquent after Feb. 15, at which time the penalties'will begin. For Eight or More. The law requires this tax from all employers of eight or more, except in occupations not covered, but many requests have been received by the commission from employers o£ less than that number, that they be allowed to come in under the provisions of the law, which they are privileged .o do, and thus provide this protection for th'eir employes. The total amount of this tax due in the state of Iowa is estimated to amount to not less than §3,000,- 000 for 1936, and will be used to provide unemployment protection to an estimated 235,000 workers. If the general assembly now in sesion should amend the Iowa statute so as to Include under the provisions of the law, all employers of four or more, it is estimated that benefits would be provided for an additional 43,000 workers or a total of approximately 278,000.

Swanson, Former Mason City Resident, Writes W. S. Wilcox. A description of flood conditions in Louisville, Ky., is contained in a letter received by Mayor W. S. Wilcox from E. O. Swanson, formerly employed by the' E. B. Higley company of Mason' City and now with Armour creameries at Louisville. "Approximately four-fifths of (he city was inundated with from 1 foot to 30 feet of water," said Mr. Swanson, who left Mason City 'about 10 years ago to join the Armour company. "In our creamery we had two feet of water ' although we are located 4 miles from the river. "We have no electric lighls or power and no telephone service and it will probably be another week before we get it. The water company managed to rig up *lem- porary pumps so we get water for one hour twice a day. "At present the water has receded only about 10 feet and houses in the west end are still under water so there is no record yet of how many lives were lost by drowning; however, we do not think the loss will be great considering the magnitude of the flood and I think the radio should be given credit for that. "We have to ship our cream to other creameries away from Louisville to be churned until we can get power and lights so we can operate." HE ENTERTAINED JESSE JAMES' GANG Frank Hice, who died last week after being a resident of the county for 65 years, had the unique experience of playing host to part of the Jesse James gang at the time it was on its way north lo rob the bank at Northfield, Minn. Mr. and Mrs. Rice were living on a farni near Plymouth at the time. The quality of the horses which the men rode and the general behavior of the group caused Mr. Rice lo believe they were horse thieves. To their request for food, however, he and Mrs. Rice acceded without hesitation. The. refusal of one of the men lo sit with his back to the door further strengthened Mi-. Rice's belief that they were thieves. All the horses of the gang showed evidence of hard riding, particularly one which the men attempted to trade lo Mr. Rice for a fast horse he had on his farm. He refused. That night and for days afterwards (he family fully expected that the desired horse would be stolen. But it never was. Laler it was learned they had entertained part of the James gang. GIVES TALK ON HIGHWAY SAFETY Hall Addresses Hamilton Students on State Program. W. Earl Hall, managing editor oC the Globe-Gazette, addressed the students at the regular weekly assembly Friday, and pointed out some of the important things that have been done to reduce accidents with the automobiles on the public highway. Mr. Hall, who" has been interested in this important work for several years, told of some of his early efforts and experiences which he said were somewhat disappointing.
