Earl Hall, Mason City Globe-Gazette managing editor, Monday evening at 9:15 o'clock over the Blue network, stirred the poetic nature of M. M. Oppegard of Grand Forks, N. Dak., to the extent that he produced the following verse, which we think should be passed an to our readers: ODE TO A WAYSIDE HIM You'd never think that on the street he'd scram for safety's ?}e. Or when the torrent lashed the shore he'd seek the highest pile; For having heard his deep basso, ah, very much profundo. You'd think he'd scorn the safety hedge, like any jungle jumbo. His voice soars out, so brave and stout, you call him Robin Hood-(Or least that way, we saw the play, when Errol Flynn was good ). He made the caissons roll and turn, he made the anchors aweigh; We knew, by God, that at his nod, all foes would stand at bay. And even when his voice grew tout, and fell short of perfection, It kept its grip-tfstift upper lip'-in just the right direction. So woe the day his roundelay must yield to wordly gloom, And sound no more in reckless corps, or to the heavens boom. Tt spems a nity his every ditty no more will sing the graces 01 heroes bold, and rnaids untold, as down life's path he races. For he has given up the gun, the rod and, yes, the reel And no more will his heSrt thump-thump behind a speeding wheel.

It's plain to see, for you and me, he's taken on new 'graces But won't he feel he's just a heel as one of safety s aces? Oh what a bland, dull, stupid life, for this guy once so reckless, Who craves a spot, as safe a lot, as Mrs. Astor's necklace.

During 1943 not a single city voted to abandon the plan, reports the International City Managers' association here, and only one referendum was held on the question of abandonment and this resulted in favorable action for the plan. The only city voting on the question was Bloomfield, Conn. In 1942 voters in that community had decided to abandon the plan as of Jan. 1, 1944. But before the date was reached they went to the polls again and rescinded their action. , In the 13-year period preceding 1943, there were 10B referenda on proposals to abandon the plan. Of these 83 per cent re- resulted in retention of the plan. In the whole history of the movement only 27 municipalities adopting managership have returned to their old form of government. But a great many efforts have been made to gel cities to give it up. Last year was the first to be marked by an absence of such effort. This abatement of political antagonism to the plan is regarded as a testimony to its practical accomplishments by students of the movement here. The movement has g r o w n steadily. Each year since 1908, when Staunton, Va., led the march toward managership, has seen the total number of council-manager cities grow. The total for the United Slates is now 555. There are also city managers in Canada. Puerto Rico and Ireland. All this growth has come about naturally. There is no propaganda organization for spreading city manager government. The association here is strictly a professional society.
