FOUR PASNAU SPEAKS ON TELEPHONY iWire Transmission Secrets Are Related by Local A. T. and T.Man. The intricacies of telephony were ireduced to terms understandable by the laymen at the weekly luncheon of the Mason City tiong club Wednesday noon. C. O. Pasnau of the local American Telephone and Telegraph company was the speaker. How four wires between Mason City and.Chicago, or any other terminus, may by coils, condensers and other devices, be used for 13 separate and distinct circuits was first explained by Mr. Pasnau. Next he told of the mechanics involved in "boosting" a telephone conversation across the continent. In this he developed the fact that male voices are wore easily transmitted than feminine voices. From this he proceeded to set forth the principles and methods employed in telephotography. As hi radio broadcasting:, Mason City is a unit in the nation's transmission of wire photography. Last Mr. Pasnau detailed the system of teletyping used by the Associated Press to bring about 40,000 words of news each day to the Globe-Gazette and other newspapers of this and other states. Five basic impulses at the point of origin are combined to punch just the right typewriter key in each' office served by the Associated Press, he explained. Earl Dean, a member of the club, sang two numbers, accompanied by Ralph Geer, at the piano. C. F. Weaver presided. MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 18 ·§ 1936 A Boy and His Dog PARTY HELD BY YOUNG DEMOS 160 Couples Present;" Club Will Hold Another April 14. The St. Patrick's day party sponsored by the Cerro Gordo county Young Democratic club at the Denison cluh Tuesday night met with such success that the young democrats have planned a series of parties,-the next to be held April 14. ' One hundred and sixty couples attended the Tuesday night party. A boy and his dog--Tuesday was a great day for that combination, with spring in the air and the winter's snow and ice shrinking away rapidly under the warm sun. Kobert Waughtal, 12, and his dog, Pal, shown above, were hiking in company with some other youngsters along the Winnebago river near the Decker dam. The boys were walking on the west side of the river, just below the dam, when Robert noticed Pal struggling in the surging backwash of the icy water just under the dam. The boys' efforts to rescue Pal were unavailing, and by the time they had gotten a rope long enough to throw to him from the shore, the undertow of the. water had pulled the courageous little Pal to his death. · ' . Pal had evidently crossed the Decker bridge while the boys had .stayed on the west side of the river, and, following them along on the other side, had decided to cross just above the dam, but the current had proved too strong for him. Robert, who lives with his grandmother, Mrs. Laura Waughtal, 1319 Elm drive, had purchased Pal at an auction in September, 1932, and had pulled him through three crises before, once when a car had run over him and twice when he had been poisoned. Specialties given included t a p dances and a song by Phil Costonos and two dances by Carol Heap. Tim Phalen acted as master of ceremonies. Accompaniment for these features was furnished by Jimmy Flemming. Music'for the dance was furnished by Red Wilson's orchestra. The committee in charge of the dance consisted of Ben Brasser, Frank O'Hearn, Tim Phalen, George Walsh, William Bowers and Leo J. Carle. CHAPTER 43 In leas than two hours, Dorothy Steele appeared at Fair Acres and sought an interview with Thora, even as Marsh had predicted. The meeting took place in a corner of the drawing room. "My dear," Mrs. Steele began hurriedly, 'I must have a minute's chat with you. Isn't it odd how things turn out? I was so anxious to be of help to you and Selwyn, and now I am the one appealing for aid!" She laughed uncertainly. "I hope that you are feeling in a charitable mood this morning." "I think that I am," Thora admitted. And waited. "It's that dinner I am giving for dear Wilma and Alec tomorrow," Dorothy explained. "I had ail my arrangements made . . . and then that stupid Edna of mine had to sprain her ankle. I never heard of anything so inconsiderate. I always depend on her to look after the details, and now she's confined to her room." "That is too bad." "Isn't it? I've been almost wild. Then I had an inspiration. I thought of you! I thought that perhaps you might be kind enough to stay in the kitchen and see that the dinner was properly served. I just must be able to devote, my time to my guests," you know." "Of course." "My 1 cook is very capable, and Jim .. he's my colored boy .. . will do the serving. I have him well-trained and he can manage it very nicely. It just needs someone to supervise things, to see that the courses are arranged properly." "I can do that for you." "You have no idea how grateful I would be. And, of course; I will pay you for your trouble." "That wiU not be necessary. 1 Something in Thora's blue eyes told the visitor that she had made an unfortunate suggestion. She cov- A rumor is current in Washington that if Roosevelt is re-elected he will, at the first opportunity, appoint Tugwell and Frankfurter to the supreme court.--Seattle, Wash., Republican State Call. ered quickly with further explanation of the situation. "It is a small party, but I am so anxious to have everything go well. There will be but six besides . . . the family. Mr. and Mrs. Gordon and Sherm, of course . . . and the others are all old friends and neighbors. who have known Wilma since she was a child. Selwyn wished it that way, so we are not having any of the young people. Except Sherm. I want them to spend the evening with us informally, but it will not be necessary for you to remain after the dinner is served. I don't want to be a bit more bother than I can help," she finishec sweetly. "Of course. And when would you like to have me come over to the house?" "Let me think . . About 5:30, or 6, if you can arrange it. We will have dinner at 8. That will give you plenty or time to' see how I have arranged things and to talk with the cook and Jim. And you can have your dinner before the guests arrive." "Thank you. I will be there not later than 6." "You really don't know what a load you have taken from my mind. I was almost distracted! This will all be satisfactory to Mr. Marsh. I ... I told him that I was going to borrow you." "He said it would be all right?" Thora questioned. She could not help asking. It had seemed a harmless favor, tie way he had mentioned it. Now, she was fighting down the temptation to refuse. But, after all, that would be a small thing to do. She would see it through. "Oh, yes, he was perfectly willing. Of course I wouldn't have asked you, without speaking to him first." "I am glad you did." "One thing I ran over for this morning was to inquire about poor Alex. Have you seen him?" "No, I haven't." "Wasn't it the most unfortunate thing! To think he had to get that bump on his face just at this time! I wag so worried when Wilma told me. You know, men are so sensitive about things of the sort. I was afraid that he might think he couldn't come to dinner. But Wilma thinks it isn't that serious. Fortunately, all the guests are old friends . . . . otherwise, they might find it amusing to see a man receiving congratulations with a bruised face before he's married, even." She could knock, and before Thora could make her escape. Hig face lighted up when he saw the girl in the drawing room doorway. "Hello!" he exclaimed. "Everybody . . . " "Oh, Sherm!" Mrs. Steele caught at his arm. "Miss Dahl is coming over tomorrow evening . . . to take Edna's place. Isn't it kind of her to help me out?" "Very." He looked steadily a Thora. "I feel so relieved!" Mrs. Steele smiled. "And now I must find Selwyn . . . " She hurried away down the hall. "Oh, Miss Dahl." "Yes?" Thora had her foot on the lower step of the stair. "Please come in here." Gordon stalked into the drawing room. He lowered his voice, as Thora followed him. "What was that Mrs. Dorothy was saying about ,you . . atout tomorrow night?" "Her maid sprained her ankle. I am going to help with the dinner." "You're going to do nothing of the sort!" "Why, of course I am." "Listen. I'm supposed to be there as a guest. Do you suppose I'm going to sit at the table and see you handing food to a bunch like that? Well, I'm not!" (TO BE CONTINUED) ,gave a shrill little laugh. "Well, I mustn't take any more of your time, Miss Dahl. I have . . . Oh!" She interrupted herself and leaned nearer the - window beside her chair. "There is Sherm driving up now. I guess he came over to inquire for poor Alec." Mrs. Steele darted to the front door and opened it before Gordon C.CHRISTIANSON DIES SUDDENLY Funeral Rites for Switchman to Be Held Friday Afternoon.
