It is now more than a month ince Cevro Gordo county relinquished slate aid in its relief program. The results in that, period ndicate that the move was a wise one, according to county supervi- ;ors. Harry Sondergaard, chairman of he board, stated that while there may be a slight loss in midwinter without state aid, this is more .nan made up as soon as the relief rolls shrink in the spring. Cerro Gordo county in its move for home rule and home support of relief has been joined by most of the immediately surrounding counties, particularly those in good financial condition, local supervisors stated. Got 10 Per Cent. At the time the county went oft state aid on Dec. 31, 193S, it was only Betting 10 per cent of the costs from the state. To receive this aid made it necessary for the county to conform to certain state supervision that added to the costs. This, it was staled, justified the move for complete separation. Continual lowering of state and federal aid for Cerro Gordo county had taken place since early in 1935, when the county got 50 per cent assistance. Even with that assistance, however, the costs on the county were heavy because of the immense overhead, county officers point out. At one time 22 persons were employed in operation of Hie relief office. In those days the county had a total relief roll peak of 1,158 families of employ- ables and 350 county cases of un- employablcs. Last winter the re- Labor Group Election is on Thursday Hickox and Rheingens Are Candidates for Head of Assembly. The annual meeting of the Mason City Trades and Labor assembly will be held at the V.

"Every year," says the author in his introductory chapter, "in fact every day of every year, brings to us the need of greater care on our highways. The need for this caution and respect for law is readily admitted. But in spite of all attempts to lessen disaster the driving public still seems backward in co-operating. and a traffic survey. The decision to go off state aid vas made by the board of super- isors last December, following a meeting with the head of the state mergency relief office in Des ·loines, at which time a 10 per cut assistance was offered.

Jimmie Gheen Really Tells New Stories That's Information Chamber of Commerce Has Received.

Address Inspirational. The New Yorker was likewise enthusiastically received at a Fort Dodge meeting of the Chamber of Commerce Monday evening. A newspaper writeup of his address slated he "gave a very entertaining address, interspersing inspirational matter with a number of sparkling new stories." Before Ghcen's appearance at Clinton, the Chamber of Commerce secretary wrote the chamber secretary of Cedar Rapids, asking among other tilings: "Is Jimmie Gheen witty? Is he intertaining? is his humor of lew brand? Is he sufficient for a program without other speakers?" Ghecn Is O. K.
