MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH-17 193G OPPOSES INCUMBENT FOR EMMETSBURG MAYOR FIFTH TIME HAND ANDBROWN AGAIN IN RACE Residents Expect Contest as Much as Appearance of First Robin. EMMETSBURG -- Emmetstmrg's famed barber and burgomaster co lest is off again to a flying start. For the fifth time since 192 Joe Hand, local tonsorial exper will oppose Earl Brown, incumbcn for mayor of Emmetsburg at th city election here March 30 in race that residents have come take as much for granted as th appearance of tie first sprin robin. Folks never ask, "Will Joe Han run for mayor this year?" but "Ho will Joe Hand run this year?" An the answer in the past eight year ias varied from "defeated by T '. votes" to "beaten by quite a majo: ·ity." Live Across Street. - For 17 years, the two "friend! enemies" have lived across th .street from 'each other, and the: children play together daily. Joe : a product of Palo Alto count \ schools, Mayor Brown an alumnu . of Emmetsburg schools, the Unive: ·sity of Iowa and Yale university. This year there were reports tha Brown would not seek re-election Several other aspirants were mored eyeing the mayor's job. Bi no other candidates except Joe ap peared, and the concensus seemed 1 be to "let Joe have it." But on th last day for filing, Brown, upholdin the Emmetsburg tradition, tore his hat into the ring. Protests Radio Interference. Joe's platform? Weli, it's no se cret that he would alter the cit police force. "And I'll enforce th city ordinance against local radi interference, among other things, Joe said. "I don't sxpect to win, bu it's encouraging to know that thej couldn't get anyone else to run against me." No regular salary is attached to the mayoralty position here. Brown mayor since 1928, has never hek court, so fees have been inconsequential. Both Brown and Hand always run on a non-partisan Citizens' ticket. The race may turn out to be a "close shave" or one of them may get his neck clipped. "I guess I can take it." smiled Joe. :-: H E R E AND T H E R E : - : Miscellaneous Items From 125 Globe-Gazette Correspondents in North Iowa and Minnesota Resident of Bristow for 40 Years Buried BRISTOW--Funeral services were held at the home, for Henry L.
