BIRDSALL iCE CREAM STORE 518 North Federal Phone 2064 AGAIN OPEN FOR BUSINESS Same Quality Same Large Variety Same Low Prices Same Service as a word .used in tie business day of Mason City. The name itself, giv- . en to an established local firm when the Klipto Loose Leaf company of; : San Francisco merged with the Le- Mars Printing company of Mason City in 1923, has come to mean prompt and accurate service to patrons throughout a territory that includes practically every state in the union. Although, the company has a local retail store located with the plant at 15-17 . Delaware avenue southeast, more than three-fourths of the company's patronage comes from outside the city itself. The Klipto Loose Leaf company requires three floors of a building one-half block in length to accommodate the several departments. In addition to the office and 'retail store there is also a printing.plant and paper ruling and binding division and a factory where loose leaf binders are made. Thirty or more persons are employed throughout the year. The payroll amounts to between $50,000 and $60,000 annually and more than $6,000 was paid this year in federal, state and local taxes. Territory is Large. As a service organization the members of the Klipto Loose.Leaf company must go deeper than the mechanics of printing and binding. More than 2,000 legal forms are carried in stock- All of these must be checked and changed with changing laws and conditions. Klipto binders are manufactured in the plant and sold through stationers and large printing institutions in many states. Types of binders made are for county and state records, catalog covers, meter reading books and for general commercial ledgers and records. Lawyers" business forms, also printed by the company, are shipped to all s'tates in the union and occasionally to Central and South America, Mexico, Canada, and the Philippines. make up the largest portion of the Klipto business. The department serving county and state offices has three ^.salesmen, covering the 99 counties--^and every : county 'in the state is a patron. More than half of the legal forms carried in stock are for counties. Election supplies are also furnished to many counties each election year. The school department in charge of C. T. Benson, serves all of the 99 county superintendents of schools and co-operates with these officers in working out new forms and publications. The department also serves a large number of the 10,000 public and parochial schools of the state. Many Services Offered. Local sales and service, in charge of L. A. Davey, assistant manager, are'handled largely through a well stocked stationery and office equipment store in the same building as the manufacturing plant. The composing and press room, in charge of Matt Kelly, is equipped with modern typesetting mechanism and 10 printing presses in a variety of styles and sizes. The bindery, managed by J. M. Hazlett, has two ruling machines and all other necessary machinery for a large bindery. The Klipto binder division, operated by F. B. A. Kirsten, is well arranged for 1 this special work. The institution was located in Mason City 28 years ago when it was '.moved here from LeMars, where it had its beginning back in the '60s as a job printing plant and newspaper. In 1905': it was incorporated as the LeMars Printing, company and was moved to Mason City in 1908, later merging with the Klipto Loose Leaf company of San Francisco. The present officers are H. M. Knudson. president; L. A. Davey, assistant manager: W. G. C. Bagley, vice president: Floyd E. Johnson, secretary: R. N. McCarron, auditor; and John D. Corsaut, treasurer.
