SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE,' PEERUARY 8 · 1937 SALOON SYSTEM URGED FOR IOWA Moore Offers Measure lo Abolish State Liquor Monopoly. UES MOINES, «P)--Rep. John W. Moore (D) of Sioux City, prepared to Tile with the Iowa house a bill to abolish the state liquor monopoly and return sale of liquor to high licensed, "home regulated saloons under the mulct system. His bill, already drafted, also would bring, beer,, now retailed under a separate state beer law, under the same system of control as hard liquor. It was the second major liquor law headed for legislative consideration. The Roan bill, introduced earlier this week, provided for sals of liquor by the drink in buffets 'but retained the state liquor system. Best System Devised. "I sincerely believe,' Moore said, "that the mulct system is the best system yet devised to control the liquor traffic. It will enlist the legitimate liquor dealer against the bootlegger and return the (ax from the sale of Mortgages ''' ' ' INVESTENT First National Biank liquor direct to the people of the community in which it is sold." Moore's bill provides that no one except a qualified elector of the town, city -or township may sell liquor in that town, city or township. The annual mulct tax is set at 5000, to be paid in advance to the county treasurer in quarterly installments. This tax must be paid on each separate saloon. Set Up Regulations. In addition cities and towns, may set up regulations and assess taxes in excess of the mulct tax as they deem fit. The mulct tax would be divided, one-half to the county general fund and the oilier half to the city or town in which the business is conducted. If the saloon is operated outside of an incorporated town, then half the tax is paid to the township for improvement o£ highways. Liquor dealers also would be required to post a $3,000 bond. Saloons would be restricted to a single room with a single entrance, the bar in plain view of the street. No chairs, benches or other furniture other than a bar would be allowed. All gambling, music, dancing or oilier forms of amusement would be prohibited and no women could be employed. Close at 11 P. M. The opening hour would be 7 a. in., the closing, 11 p. m. All saloons would be closed on Sundays, election days and legal holidays. Sale to minors, drunkards or intoxicated persons would be prohibited. Violators of the law would be subject to a fine o£ $100 to $300 in first conviction. Subsequent convictions would carry a fine of from $300 to 51,000. Jail sentences, ranging up to one year, are provided in case fines are not paid. The bill also prohibits distillers or brewers from engaging in any way in the retail liquor business and provides a fine ranging from 5300 to $l,t00, a year ia jail, for those found guilty of so doing. Plan Day of Prayer. PLYMOUTH--The World's Day of Prayer will be observed in a joint meeting of the F. M. and M. E. churches and ' a t the Free Methodist church Friday afternoon at 2:30. THE OTHER DAY A Farmer Got 1,000.00 Just a s h o r t - t i m e ago ;i north Iowa farmer held t\ Public-Sale; When it was all over, (lie clerk told him that IHS properly brought belter than $4,000.00. This farmer, .who Kad advertised his sale in the Globe-GazcUc, .was exceptionally well p.leasod for. .the. .livestock, machinery and other article? .sold .for around §500.00 more than he and .his family had expected. CAfllE TO'OFFICE A few days later the farmer was at the Glohe-Gazelle office and while talking about his very successful sale, he said, "Thai's what happens when you advertise vmir sale in the Globe-Gazette." And he is right. Public Sa!cs, Closing Out Sales, Farm Auctions and Livestock Sales do draw larger crowds--get more bidders and buyers--and consequently the property sells "for more money, when it is sufficiently advertised in this newspaper. LET THEM KNOW So, air. Farmer, if you are going to hold a Hale, be sure to announce it in the Globe- Gazcttc, then the farmers and breeders of north Iowa and southern Minnesota will know that you are going lo have a sale, and they can plan to be there. Your public sale advertisement in the Globe- Gazette, which has a big circulation, will cost only a few dollars. We believe t h a t the charge will be much less than you would expect. Now--if you. loo, wan I a profitable sale, bring or mail your list of property and other important items about your sale to Ihe Globe-Gazelle office. Your advertisement will be properly arranged, attractively set in type, and published on the day, or days, that you prefer. Soles Advertised in Globe- Gazette Draw the Crowds! A Line O'Pipe · By T.

But small it matters it he did.

Pipe: Is my bigger and bettor Vz ever sore. Is she burnt up. Is she exasperated in large amounts. And how. And docs she ever give me the dickens morning, noon and night. Also in forenoon and afternoon and on holidays. One would think I did something on purpose. Which I didn't. Would you enjoy to know how come all this'! Well here it is anysvay. Some time ago I install a great modern convenience in home which consisted of automatic coal stoker for furnace heating plant in basement. It works great. One time each day I enter basement, fill hopper of stoking machine. Remove a cinder or two, and forget fire for 21 hours. The bigger and better is she delighted. She is. Each morning the house is warm like spring time. So she gets herself a flock o£ high priced house plants and gloats over them to all her friends. She watches them grow (the flowers, not her friends) and pretty soon they arc all covered with buds and blossoms. Then one cold night I comes home late and forgets the stoker filling. Next morning all plants frozen solid and very dead. Next morning I also get the dickens in three languages and two dialects and lols of adjectives. I still receive same. Hoping you are the same.

Local Chapter Wil Be Established A local chapter of the Ancient nnd Honorable Amalgamated association of the Knights of the Animated Horn Honkers of America is being established in Mason City. It is the first of its kind in the slate and Mason City is to be congratulated on the honor that is thus being bestowed upon it. Not in many years have the citizens of Mason City been afforded an opportunity to become affiliated with an organization of the scope and character of the A. H. A. A. K. A. A. H. of A. and all persons who take an interest ... the art of automobile horn honking are urged to present their names to the proper committee at once. By so doing they may have the extreme honor of becoming charter members of the local chapter. The by laws of the organization provide that all members shall honk the horn, or horns, of their automobiles at each and every occasion posiblc, or at no occasion whatever. They should be especially alert and overlook no opportunity to honk the horn under the following circumstances. When the car ahead does not move within a split second before the traffic lights change. To attract the attention o£ a pretty gal on the sidewalk. When the car ahead stops to keep from being hit by a no the: car which has the right of way. When the car ahead stops to keep from runniiy, owi- a woman and a few children. When a freight train is on a highway crossing. Blowing the horn at such times is particularly effective. It annoys' all within hearing distance and causes the freight train to get off of the crossing at a high rate of speed. To call attention of the girl friend to the obvious fact that her sweetie has arrived in the neighborhood. .When meeting and passing any and all automobiles, especially in the city. Many other occasions for horn honking will occur to the alert horn honker of experience. The emblem of the association is the goose, that noble bird which was the original honker and whose intelligence each member of the A. H. A. A. K. A. A. H. of A. hopes some day to acquire. If interested, get in touch with Mr. G. Ander, chief goose, for further particulars. - Visitor From Waterloo.
