"m 8 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FEBRUARY 28 1931 A TOWN Can Be No Greater Than Its Integral Parts. Mason City to Be Great Must Have Good, Unselfish Citizens. Be ONE. THE FY WE LIVE IN A WEEKLY Page Devoted to Community Interests That Make for a Bigger and Better MASON CITY. HEALTH WORK IN SCHOOLS MAKING RAPID PROGRESS Township Units Completing - Examination of JPupils; Interest Increases. WitU a number of her countywide school projects out of the way for the season, Mrs. Pearl Tannar, county superintendent, is devoting her time to the development of health work in all the 100 schools under her jurisdiction. Health work has been a part of Mrs. Tannar's general program of work in the schools for years, but this year, with the harmonious cooperation of Christmas seal chairmen in each of the 16 townships the project is being pushed to successful consummation. " Complete Examinations. . Thursday Dr. Madeline Donnelly completed the physical examination of all the school children in Lime Creek township. In the same manner Dr. A. B. Phillips of Clear Lake has given the pupils of Lake township schools a physical examination. The cost of these examinations, which amounts to $2.50 a school, Is provided by a part of the proceeds of the Christmas seal sales, which were under the general direction of Mrs. Ambrose Chesebro of Plymouth, county chairman. Each township, however, was allowed to retain the half of the seal sales that stays' at home, the remainder going to state headquarters at Des Moines. Directing Work. Under this plan, the work of making use of these funds for improving the health of school children revolves about the 16 townsntp chairmen, each of whom directs thij health crusade' in her own domain, choosing the physician and other c'etails. Mrs. Tannar, eager to sea the conditions in the rural schools improved, acts in an advisory capacity. The health work, nowever, extends beyond the correction of physical defects.- Mrs. Tannar has for years carried on preventive work and has particularly strwed to provide hot lunches in the school until now this is the common practice. Teachers also make certain that at children receive fruit and milk. Conduct Services at Olivet The Rev. William nounced Saturday Galbreth an- that Charles · Knouse, Boy Scout executive, will conduct the Epworth league service at the Olivet M. B. church at 6:45 o'clock and. the regular evening service at 7:30 o'clock Sunday. The minister also announced that the regular afternoon services would be held at the Odd Fellow home, including Sunday school 'at 2 o'clock and preaching at 3 o'.clock. NEW AUTOMOBILE LICENSES ISSUED DURING WEEK MEET FRED TIMS Chief Engineer of Public Schools Has 28 Years of Service on Record; Came Fnm England 38 Years Ago: Twenty-eight years and a half of service with the public schools of ATason City is the record held by Fred Tims, chief engineer. When he started work as janitor of Garfield school, there were only five school buildings in the city. Now Mr. Tims is in charge of the 16 modern buildings which make up the local system. He has charge of all the Janitors and is responsible for the upkeep of all school property. Hia office is in the corner of the central heating plant. Mr. Tims came to America from Surry, England, 38 years ago when he was 20 years old. He lived the first year on a farm with his brother William, near Burchinal. Later he worked in the roundhouse of the Milwaukee railroad here. Trained Horses. After flninshing the elementary schools in England Mr. Tims spent several years in a military school. Later he was employed breaking and training horses. At that time he weighed only 110 pounds. He also*worked for a short time with a firm in England which had contracts for heating schools, colleges and estates. Mr. Tim's home in England was only four or.five miles from Windsor castle, then.the home of Queen Victoria. The new Windsor is surrounded by quite a town, Mr. Tims said, but the old Windsor castle lies in a valley too narrow for even a village. FRED TIMS -Photo by Kirk Many old Roman ruins, most of them still in a good state of preservation, remain in the neighborhood from which Mr. Tims came. The roads are still marked with Roman milestones, he said. The tower of London with its instruments of torture, its low ceiled dungeons and its ancient chains was described by Mr. Tims. The block on which Mary Queen of Scots laid her head is still stained brown with her blood, he said. I didn't like it here very well when I first came, but I wouldn't want to go back now, Mr. Tims said. Mr. Studies His Work. Tims studies for his work. On his desk is a pile of techinical books about heating, plumbing and other matters which concern his work. On his wall hangs a certificate showing he has completed an extension course from Iowa State college, "You must have experience along with your education," Mr. Tims declared as he looked up at two of the great boilers in the central heating- plant, one of the most modern school heating plants in the state. "Theory is all right but you must have practice too," he added. A line O' pipe By T. PIPE Stick to the Prpe--Let the Smoke Blow Where It Will Now comes the roaring montn of March. When blust'ry winds do blow; With sleet and hall and driving rain, And often times the snow. And sunny days when all the land, Smiles neath an azure sky; A promise of the glad springtime, That's coming bye and bye. MARCH IS PERHAPS THE MOST "DIFFERENT" MONTH OF THE YEAR. OTHER MONTHS SORT OF RUN INTO EACH OTHER AND THERE IS NO DISTINCT OR SHARP DIVIDING LINE. BUT MARCH IS MARCH AND THERE IS NO MISTAKING IT FOR ANY OTHER MONTH. As usual congress la all fussed up over the annual postal deficit. It would indeed be a drab, dreary session of congress did they not have this interesting topic to discuss. And there is always some particularly bright member of the body to suggest as a remedy an increase in first class postage rates. This seems to be the only cure for the evil that ever comes to mind. After it is submitted and thoroly discussed, the question is dropped and the annual deficit continues to thrive for another year. Scanning* New Adventiu-e, War and Western Stories in Library A Blight raise in parcel post rates would take care of the deficit In the department of the postal structure where the loss occurs. However it would be very sad to kill the annual deficit leaving congress nothing about which to get all fussed up at each session of that justly famous body. .._ __ i*:.- *A. B.

Adventure, mystery, western stories, tales of the great north, war. and its experiences--these are the books that appeal to dad. The library this week has added some fresh copies of books of this sort. "Fighting Caravans" by Zane Grey, will appeal to men. This is ffi two-fisted, rip snorting western story. It is filled to the brim with the lore of the plains. A long procession of covered wagons carry the story forward. It has been shown in Mason City in moving pictures, and the three new copies of the book at the library will help fill the great demand at the circulation desk. MYSTERY STORIES THAT SEEN LIKE "Behind that Curtain" suggests a long line of good mystery stories by Earl Derr Biggers. Conan Doyle in his "Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" and in "Hound of the Sas* kervllles" always finds a warm welcome among mystery fans. Ro- cently the S. S. Van Dine murder stories have been attracting much attention. "The Benson Murder Case". "The Bishop Murder Case," "The Canary Murder Case" and "The Greene Murder Case" are all popular at the library. Edgar Wallace is another mystery writer whose books are popular. And "Best Man" doesn't sound like a mystery story, bu there is a secret service man in i and a mystery all mixed up with a wedding. It is an impossible tale but there are thrills enough in thi telling. Dog stories dad is almost sure to like. Perhaps he and junior wn: ake turns reading them, aloud. They might begin on "Bob, Son of Battle, 1 ' or "Call of the Wild" or 'Adventures of Lad" or "Jerry" or 'Greyfriars Bobby" or any one of a long list of favorites. The librai-y staff prepared a Book Pilot on clogs Lhat is available to anyone who would like to have a good list of dog stories. FORTHCOMING BOOKS Fiction "The Forge," by T. S.

AT THE HOSPITALS METEOR MAY STRIKE AMERICA ONLY ONCE DURING 9,000 YEARS.--HEADLINE. WHICH, WE WOULD SAY OFF HAND, IS PLENTY OFTEN ENOUGH TO GET STRUCK BY A METEOR REGARDLESS OF ONE'S NATIONALITY. ART WORK IN BLACKSMITHING THE urge to give expression .to ·I the blacksmithing art, evolved under the tutelage of his father in Ahus, Sweden, but submerged in the onward march of machine methods in America, led Otto Lindstrom, blacksmith, 120 First street north- cast, to the making of wrought iron floor lamps, some of which are shown in the above photograph. Mr. Lindstrom came from a family of blacksmiths. He and five brothers all worked in their father's large shop at Ahus, a town near Stockholm. His father was one of Eix brothers, air of whom were blacksmiths. And so it goes 'back for at least seven generations that the "Mason City man has been able to trace his ancestry. With blacksmithing as tne family craft there naturally developed a pride of workmanship that is more prevalent in- the old world than in the · more hectic life in America. Hand tooling was developed into an art and this are is expressed eloquently in the beautiful lamp stands shown above. The lamps were made of square tubing and strap iron, forged, ham- mered and drawn to the desired .shapes and then carefully polished. Tne bases and decorative parts especially show the craftsman's skill After the polishing, the metal is preserved from rusting by? the innumerable .applications of lacquer. All of the lamps show rare originality and every collection shows a refreshing variety. The three lamps shown in the photographs and two others were displayed in the show window of the Mason Ctiy hardware store the past week. -NOW IT CAN BE TOLD- Golden Age for Bootleggers Gone JAY MCCLELLAND GOT FIRST OF BIG FINES; TRIED TO KEEP .RAIDING OF- FIGERS .OUT BY SAYING WIFE WAS TAKING BATH. Now comes a luue., much too ong- for this column of mirthless lumor, from one D. L. F. lamenting :he fact that he was picked up by .he police one early morn because ie did not arise in time to comb his hair and reach his job on time. The police seeing him hastening along the street looked on him with suspicion. So much so that they took film to the station for further examination and inspection. Much to the annoyance of the said D. L. F. who is a Mason City lad, born and bred. Which, had he been a lawbreaker, bad and bold, and the police had not picked him up it would have been a diffr -- -t story. .it.y fine, Inside or out, 'M To have a nice new shiny shine. T. Pipe: Sign down town, "Shoes shined inside." I didn't go in. I don't cure to have my shoes shined inside. It soils my sox. Hoping you are the same. --P. K. Was It You Carl ? We just heard about a local woman who ordered a fob from a jewelry store for her bus- band's birthday. The gift was sent C. O. D. She called up the jeweler and told him he'd made a mistake. "I didn't order a C. O. D.,' she said, "I ordered an F. O. B." Bootlegging'may be on the wane in Cerro Gordo county, as stated in the much discussed Wlckersham report, . . ' ' . But this do.es not mean that bootleggers haven't had their golden age in the community and that It didn't take some concentrated effort on the (part of law officers to change the conditions. A decade ago the criminal dockets were crowded with liquor cases and grand juries returned as many as 60 indictments for booze violations In one term. The experiences of officers in battling this sudden wave of crime will make an absorbing chapter when the court history of the county is written. Was Prominent Dealer One of the most prominent of the immediate post-war bootleggers was Jay McClelland, who years ago left the city for more lucrative fields of operation. Jay was one of the first of the big alcohol dealers and bought the product in gallon tins for distribution in half pint and other sized bottles. He did so well at the business that he decided to build a beautiful home in a fashionable section of Forest Park. This was in 1921 when W. P. Butler had just entered upon his duties as county attorney. Lived in Garage. While the house was under construction Mr. and Mrs. McClelland lived in the garage to the rear, which- had been erected first. Altho having purchased no concession rights, McClelland that year supplied most of the liquor consumed at the North Iowa fair. Officers got on to what he was doing, but were unable to catch him making the deliveries. But one day plans were made for a raid on the McClelland place. County Attorney Butler, Sheriff Fred Marsh, Justice D. D. Fuller and one !or two deputies made up ;he party. He Slammed Door. The McClellands were still residing in the garage and as the officers approached Jay could be seen standing in the. doorway. "Hello Jay," aaid the sheriff as they neared the garage. Without a word M c C l e l l a n d slammed the door shut and locked it. The officers tried It and the sheriff started kicking at the door panels. * "Let me in or I'll kick your door down," cried Marsh. "You can't come in now for my wife's taking a bath," said McClelland. There was a tone of desperation in his voice. Was pouring it Out, A pair of the officers started circuiting the building and discovered that gallons o£ alcoholic fluids were emerging from a temporary spout used as a draw from .the improvised sink. The first thing a bootlegger thinks about on being confronted by the law is to dump the liquor. "Well I don't care if she is taking a bath, I'm going in," said one member of the party. The records don't show who made the remark. The man looked in one of the windows and saw Mrs. McClelland sitting on the bed taking off her shoes and stockings and apparantly preparing to disrobe further. It was evident McClelland intended to play fair with the officers and really have his wife take a bath. "Better keep your clothes on," the representative of the law declared "for I'm coming in." She Postponed Bath. Thru the window he went. Mrs McClelland decided she could post- pone her bath and Jay, seeing the officers had him, ceased dumping the alcohol tins and opened the door. The officers found a can of alcohol, more than enough for evidence. Overhead in the small attic of the structure they discovered some 25 or 30 empty gallon cans. "What are you doing with those empty cans?" asked Sheriff Marsh. "I got them to maks shingles for my new home," was the immediate reply of McClelland. Jay always had a ready answer. Got Heavy Fine. Judge Joseph J. Clark, Cerro Gordo county's Moses of prohibition, fined McClelland $800 and costs for this violation. This was one of the first large fines given for booze violations and began to put fear into the minds of the bootlegging fraternity of the city. This fine established a precedent for stepping on the magnates of the liquor business and within the next few years the number of persons engaged in the traffic was appar- antly much reduced. The legislature put more teeth in the law and punishment was made more severe, especially for second or third offenses. He Left Town. McClelland, however, got into trouble once more and^again he was dragged into the courts. He put up a bond and, according to officers shortly afterwards left town on business and hasn't returned. But the account of the bootlegger's ruse of having his wife take a bath to keep the officers out anc the determinatioin of an officer to intercept his plans by climbing thrv the window into the bedroom wil' always elicit a "laugh among those who had a part in the raid. "GROWING PAINS" DISCUSSED BY DR, G, E, DAKIN Child Health Considered at Joint Meeting Held in Des Moines. The fact made prominent in the discussion of tuberculosis and heart disease at the joint meeting of the Iowa Tuberculosis 'association and the Iowa Heart association meeting in Des Moinea this week was that what people used to call "growing pains" are really rheumatic pains due to infection, often in the nose ' or throat, according to Dr. C. E. Dakin, health director, who attended the meetings. Emphasis was placed on the theory that any child suffering from tonsolitiis or frequent colds shoxild be treated by rest in bed, Dr. Dakin said. The reason for heart diseasG in later life is often due to improper care of children at such tunes, he added. School Is Secondary. Any child who is undernourished', who suffere from frequent colds, or is in any way sub-standard in the matter of health needs care and rest and school work for him is a secondary proposition, Dr. Dakin declared. "In connection with the annual meeting of the Iowa Public Health ssociation to be held in Des Moinea i.pril 2 and 3, an addition has been nade which is of vital importance nd interest," according to the Iowa Department of Health. To Discuss Conference. "Upon the recommendation of the overnor of Iowa, it has been de- ided to devote the whole of the aft- rnoon of the second day of the eeting to 'reports and.discussions ! the white house conference on hild health, and protection," the epartment of health continued. "At hat time, the findings of the white ouse conference will be reported y sections. "The white house conference has reated intense interest in the prob- ems attending the proper care of he child and this meeting will offer n opportunity to learn just what ae conference has recommended, 'he program prepared for the aft- rnoon of April 3 will furnish direct nformation to those interested anil tlose actually engaged in ti.^-^'jj'I? - t child health ami weliare, and ii* ssoctation with ine rest of the pro-'" ram of the two day meeting creates J. combination which should not be verlooked. Those who attend this ombined meeting will find it packed ull of material which they will be able to use thruout tha year. "Those interested in public health and maternal and child welfare hould set these days apart and resolve to attend this meeting. Thn -omplete program will ha distributed in the near future." Dr. Dakin plans to ba in Dea Moines next week-end. Mrs. Haroli Jones, Lone Rock was admitted to Park hospital for a major operation Friday. Jeorge Bugs, Rockwell, was admitted to Mercy hospital for treatment Saturday. , Leo M. Sullivan, Delaware apartment, was dismissed from Mercy hospital Friday following a major operation. Charles E. Beckenhauer, 220 Second street northwest, was admitted to Park hospital for treatment Friday. W. C. Lau, Ventura, who has been at Park hospital for a minor operation, was dismissed Friday. John Siberz, DCS Moines, was dismissed from Park hospital Friday following treatment. D. L. Taylor, Kensett, who has been at Mercy hospital for treatment, was dismissed Friday. I a, THE CRUISE OF THE PRZEMYSL CHAPTER 24 "Beg pardon sir," spoke, up a member of the crew, "but that smell you smelt is smelt." "I'll say it smelt and it still does," was my immediate reply. "But," the man insisted, "this smell is smelt." "Of course it is, and how. But what I want to know is what smell." "That is what I am trying to tell you. The smell is smelt." I looked around for something to hit him with when the first mate appeared, holding his nose and something in his hand. , "Here is the smell that smelL.It'a the smelt that done It." "The smelt," he added, "are too dead." And then I understood. The keg of smelt had become more ancient than usual and smelt. In the meantime the boat had been surging ahead and had now reached the junction of Lime creek and Willow creek. It was then that I had to make a very momentous decision. (Ed note: A smelt fa a small fish of very pronounced odor when it is too extremely dead). (TO BE CONTINUED; Watch Your Step!
