George, chairman, troop 21, gave a few words of welcome. The main address of the evening was delivered by Lester Dibble on "Patriotism." In his address Mr. Dibble pointed out that boys in the Boy Scouts movement were members of a very patriotic organization and no doubt were as patriotic as any soldier who ever carried a gun in a war. His talk dealt with the 12 points of the .scout law which he cited as the fundamental principles of patriotism. Ralph Lloyd Jones, chairman of troop 35 and vice president of the council, presided at the awarding of the badges.

McWaters and to troop 35 by the Rev. R. M. Redenbaugh. The scout executive announced that troops 21 and 35 had earned the efficiency ribbon for the month of February. This court of honor was the first district court to be held in Mason City.

Districts 1 and 4 will hold a combined court on Tuesday April 10, as all troops in these two districts meet on Tuesday night. District three will hold their courts on Monday night. The meeting Monday night was closed with the benediction by the Rev. Dibble and the scouts singing taps. Employes of Standard Oil Company Organize Stanolind Credit Union John Skuttle Gets Patent on New Valve for His Humidifier John L.

The new regulator is provided with a.float and the valve is cut off when the water level raises the float. The particular feature of the invention rests in the economical and simple construction of the device. Mr. Skuttle applied for his patent in June, 1931, and it was allowed with one claim.

Mason City enforcement officers were making a study Tuesday of a strange new development in the possible Dillinger angle of the robbery of the First National bank. Meanwhile they were completing plans to take an automobile load or two of witnesses to Rochester, Minn., to see Dillinger's notorious double, Frank Carpenter, who is being held in connection with the Byron, Minn., bank robbery. The new Dillinger angle came to light when a stranger who answered the description of John Dillinger was seen at a filling station at Manchester Saturday night, It was learned Tuesday. He carried a revolver and talked about "Pretty Boy" Floyd's hangout iu the Ozarks and the Mason City bank robbery. He drove hurriedly away when another car came into the station. Chances Remote. That the Manchester episode should prove to have some connec tlon with the Mason City robbery was possible, according to local officers, who doubted, however, that the strange motorist was Dillinger himself. As officers now view it the possibilities that Carpenter can be positively identified as one of the loca' bank robbers, are remote. The expedition to Rochester is to be made on the theory that nothing shouk be left undone, nor any clew ignored in the. titanic job that lies ahead in identifying and capturing the men who robbed the local bank. Not Positive. While the pictures of some gang sters have been identified by hostages and other witnesses of thi holdup, the identifications have no' been positive enough to arouse at tention. That the robbery was probably committed by the remnants of sev eral gangs is the opinion held by some investigators. R. L. James, secretary of the school board, bandit shooting victim was continuing to show recovery a the Mercy hospital. He is resting well nights and has reached a stagi of recovery at which infection is les likely, it was stated. Suggest Rifles. DES MOINES, March 27.
