Phone 874 FACING THE FACTS On Friday, January 21, the people of Mason City will vote on the question, "Shall the city of Mason City abandon its City Manager Plan and bec9me a city under the same law governing cities and towns?" Which means if the people vote "Yes" there will be a return to Mayor and Alderman type of government. The question concerns a plan of government and nothing else. Any dissatisfaction over the execution of the plan is not the issue involved. The plan itself is for the the people to approve or disapprove. Moreover to assure a democratic decision by the people, a group of individuals have formed what will be known as the Committee for the Preservation of Good City Government. Members of this committee will be announced in several days. This committee will and proposes to place before the people what the City Manager Plan has accomplished for Mason City. No business, no church, no school, no labor union, no store, and even no family can exist without some person who is responsible for the efficient management within income. There may be differences of opinion as to what should or could be done, but for. the common people their future protection as "CITIZENS of MASON CITY" is safeguarded under a City Manager Plan as will be explained in future releases by this committee.
