MARCH 4 ··1931 MASON CITY UL.OBE-GAZKTTK MRS. W. W. REMINGTON LAUDS CITY MANAGER PLAN IN TALK Department Hears Last of Lectures National Affairs Discussed by Speaker at Noon Meeting. Mrs. William W. Remington, Minneapolis lecturer, praised the city manager form of government in her talk Wednesday noon before the current events department of the Woman's club at the Y. W. C. A. This was the last of a series of five lectures and her topic was affairs in the United States. "The result of the recent elections in Chicago demonstrated how little the people can control the ad' ministration o£ the business and finance of. a large city," Mrs. Remington said. "This is an age of- tremendous financial transaction · in city government. The city of a mU L lion inhabitants is a characteristic of this age alone. "Taxes have increased. 209 per cent altho the population has increased only 38 per cent. The indifference of the people is the cause of the maladministration of public funds. It is a vicious thing that the same body which votes new buildings also has the power to let con' tracts. Administration and legislation should be separated and ,in - · answer 'to this demand a new profession of city managers is growing up. The only ppssible xvay in which city government can be administered efficiently is thru a city manager who is a trained expert in his work. Taxes Intolerable. ."The people of the United States have been taxed until the amounts .which they pay today have become an intolerable burden. President Hoover stands for the good of the American people and he is more un- partisau than any president we have had for a long- time. He knew that , the treasury could not bear the drain., which the veterans loans would make and that is why he op' posed it, not because he wished to deny the needy soldiers. Knowing that he would be misunderstood, it took a great deal of courage for him to maintain his stand. "The handwriting on the wall of congress which has played a larger "influence than anything else in our , governing is the numbers 1932. Men like Hoover and Owen D. Young are not playing politics because they are not responsible to a single state V- or .district; ^Hoover's, only fault is i Vi that he ,is riot a.politician.

Q e : - p O W e r · - r - s s mission is dismissing certain subiir'-'' . . dinates which was so objected to by the 'bitter-enders' of the republican party was justifiable. President Hoover in his approval of the action was standing on solid ground. Power is' Question. "The matter of the' Muscle Shoals is a great question today and will become a great issue in 1932. It is a matter of deciding whether he will have private ownership of the power, properly legislated or government ownership. If it is given to .the government it is -taking one · more power from the-local unit and another step in the direction of a bureaucracy. "Our plan of government involves the sending^ of green recruits to Washington to make our laws and the middlewest has done this so often that eastern men have always held positions of importance on the committees because of senoritv rights. "The maternity and infancy act asks a million dollars to be used in literature concerning prenatal care and infancy. It in no way encroaches upon the medical profession. The bill which saved 122,000 mothers and babies has lapsed because of lack of appropriation. A few years ago it was safer to be born a pig or a cow than a baby and if the work is not continued we will lapse in that direction. Farm Board's Work "There will be a great fight over the reappointments to the farm board. The board is an experiment into which Hoover was pressed. It has been helpful at times, but we all know that the less the government interferes the better we can control the law of supply-and demand.-The board advocated a retrenchment in the acreage of wheat but the farmers refused to do this. The United TO STOMACH SUFFERERS Can you eat a good meal and enjoy it or do you have to treat your stomach like a pet? Most diseases of the stomach, liver and intestines are curable if not allowed to run too long. Gas in the stomach and bowels, belching, irregular appetite, pain when the stomach is empty, sensation of weight or fullness in the stomach, pain in the right side, constipation, loss of weight and strength, nervousness are some of the symptoms of a disordered stomach and liver and 1 may come from faulty functioning of some organ or from a bad diet. A great many hundred who have suffered from stomach and liver trouble have found permanent beneficial results from Dr. Wilbert Shallenberger's treatment and advice. He has had over 30 years experience in treating these troubles. If you are afflicted come in and let the doctor examine you and advise you accordingly. Dr. Shallenberger can be consulted "at Mason City, Hotel Cerro Gordo, Friday, March 6th. Examination free. you must stand while ironing have a soft rug- under your feet. States cannot compete in the wheat markets of the world because of our higher standard of living and the greater cost at which tpe wheat is produced. "A good plan would be to study the land values and the things which can be grown best in various parts of the country. Diversified farming could - b e used to greater advantage. There is the same difficulty with cotton that there is with wheat. There is a need to improve the quality of the cotton the way Egypt has done so that the United States may be able to compete. Help the Sufferers "Twenty million dollars have been appropriated to aid the drought sufferers in Arkansas. Banks are being, reopened with funds which the farmer may - borrow to get a start. This step of federal dispensation of charity may involve a departure from our personal giving. If the farmer in Arkansas has a roof over his head and a little food to eat and gets government aid, how much greater is the need of the laborer in New York who with his family is turned out into the street, jobless and starving. We are progressing toward socialism. ·· "In our new immigration bill it is well to consider that every foreigner who enters the United States is challenging an American for his job. If the- Americans lose their jobs, they become public charges. "Foreign trade has slumped. We are facing keener competition than ever. Great Britain is completing the last railroad link to India. Irrigation is being: carried on in desert regions and towns are expected to spring up. There is a great need for 'a conference to organize markets and adjust standards of living and labor. Decision Reveraed. "The decision of Judge Clark that the prohibition amendment was invalid was reversed. Its acceptance would have meant that the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth amendments were also invalid. The Wickersham report did one thing in mirroring- the ponfused public mind ^nvtMS'r'subject/fJt'Vaso -proVed" itMt .prohibition is not'a partisan question. If it forced to be one in the next presidential campaign it will mark the end of tha republican anil democratic parties as such. Solutions offered are 110 better than tne one we have at present. "The need of. tha middlewest to be lifted up out of the commercial depression into which it has been sinking since the completion of the Panama canal can be answered by the widening - o f the Mississippi channel. Base freight rates for the middlewest cities would mean from 10 to 14 cents a bushel for the Iowa and Minnesota farmer. The St. Lawrence deep waterway is preferable to the AH American play which New York is sponsoring. Care of Pets Offers Opportunity to Teach Child Responsibility By ALICE JUDSON PEALE Nothing can take the place of the friendly familiarity with animals that a child acquires in the country; it is possible for him to experience some of these pleasures thru possession of such pets as can be kept even in an apartment. The two year old is not too young to enjoy an aquarium with a few gold fish, a pollywog or two, and some snails. Canary birds seem to have gone out of fashion for family living- rooms, but in the riursery they still repay the care they need by the delight they bring to tho children. Children of six or more will enjoy caring for such pets as turtles, lizards or newts, any or all of which can be kept in small pans from the kitchen. Where it is at all possible, a child should.have a cat or a dog for his very own. At least once during his childhood, he should have the experience of watching- and caring for a mother cat or dog and her family. Puppies and kittens can be born and spend at least the first few weeks of their lives quite comfortably in a clean dry cellar. Mother cats are especially good about raising their families in a cramped environment. Our own cat brot up four handsome, well-behaved kittens in a wood box in the Kvin* room. f A. M. 0.

Just Another "grand ...Try an Utterly Different Kind of Coffee T JLa. jaste the Rare Flavor of Coffees Grown Only in Central America's Lofty Mountain Plantations I F you're looking for something different . and better, in coffee--don't just change ' to some other "brand." Try a different kind of coffee. Try coffees from an altogether different part of the world. Rare varieties that Nature herself has given a richness and flavor unlike any coffee that has ever come into your home before. From The West Coast of Central America Look at' the map below. In these tiny mountain districts, Nature grows probably the choicest flavored coffees known today. They have a rare tang and rich mellow body that, experts concede, are not duplicated anywhere else in the world. Furthermore, Nature leaves out the "rough" offensive oils in these coffees. Only a fraction of the world's supply is grown in this famous region. Few people in a lifetime ever have a chance to enjoy this rarest of flavors. Flavor produced by a peculiar combination of rich volcanic soil, altitude, sun's rays and tropic rainfall--that is found nowhere else in the world. So try it. And see for yourself what a vast difference there can be in coffee. ·Introduced By Folger Years ago these coffees were first served in the old Bohemian restaurants of metropolitan San Francisco where they were brought by Folger. Travelers tasting them there were captivated. They wrote back for shipments. Connoisseurs among the European nobility, it is said, even purchased private plantations in Central America to secure these rare coffees--first for their own tables, and later to exploit commercially in Europe. Through your grocer, Folger now brings you these coffees packed in flavor-sealed vacuum tins, always as fresh as they left the roasting ovens. If you have never tasted Folger's, your first cup will probably be a revelation. To satisfy Limiting Codec on n Central American Mountain tion--The richest flavored coffees grow at from 3,500 to 5,500 feet attitucle. The first stage of their journey to Folgcr'sand your breakfast table is over rough precipitous mountain trails by "mule empress." Hcrciyou sec some choice Guatemala coffee about to start on its travels. This is one of the rare varieties used by Folger. (EWING GALLOWAY) Folger's rare Centra! American coffees are unloaded from Panama Mails. S. Colombia in San Francisco. (FOLGER PHOTO) The Folgcr Coffer, buyer visits the owner of the famous Hclla Vista Plantation near Antigua, Central America. your curiosity, if for no other reason, we suggest you try the famous Folger Coffee test. A Test of Flavor Would you like to see for yourself just how different these coffees are--in richness and in flavor? Here's a test that is as simple as it is fair. Tomorrow morning drink Folger's. The next morning drink the coffee you have been using. The third morning drink Folger's again. In a morning or two you will decidedly favor one or the other; the best coffee wins. That's fair, isn't it? F O L G E R C O F F E E C O M P A N Y Kansas City San Francisco Dallas V A C U U M P A C K E D Of Course!--Always Fresh
