Freeland of Onra. They will make a thorough survey of the cities, recommending to the commission the most satisfactory sites for each store in the respective community under the plans of the commission. Cooper explained that the five men engaged to assist the commissioners in selecting sites have been employed only temporarily and in order to speed the work of getting the stores in operation. "Our intention in this preliminary setup is to locate stores where they will serve the greatest proportion of the people of Iowa," Cooper said. "Where possible, we have located these stores in cities of more than : 0,000. In the more sparsely settled sections of the state we have selected some cities under 10,000 for this preliminary setup. This was necessary in order that distribution might be had over the entire state. Want "Distribution." "In all of our activities here, our first aim is to stamp out bootlegging. Consequently this preliminary setup must provide state-wide distribution." Chairman Cooper urged cities and towns which were not on the preliminary list to be patient and to cooperate with the commission in its desire to establish stores at the earliest possible date. He explained that it is the plan of the commission to have a store operating in every county as rapidly as good judgment will permit. He pointed out that the commission cannot open stores in every town immediately. . He also urged applicants for posi- ions not to attempt to confer with he commissioners on their preliminary trips over the state. He pointed out that this would only de- ay the organization and hinder the mmediata formation of the chain store system.

Crofoot was in Des Moines Friday to confer with officials of the CWA administration on its continuation. Officially the Civil Works administration came to an end Friday, with the man in charge, Harry L. Hopldns, pronouncing it a success, according to word received from Washington, D. C. CWA in Mason City was closed, as far as word has been received locally, according to Roy Martin, secretary of the local office. "There was some talk of continuing the projects through until May 1, but we have had no instructions to do so," said Mr. Martin Friday. Approximately 1,850,000 persons still were on the payroll In the United States, but most of them are to be transferred Monday to the work program of the relief administration--also headed by Hopkins. New Plan Ready. The government has a new relief plan ready to supplant CWA and Hopkins emphasized anew that ' we intend to see that everybody In the country who needs relief gets it,, according to a news dispatch. Some 250,000 persons will remain with CWA to finish details of the work and complete federal and research projects by May 1. But the general program is over. The administration has spent approximately ?l. 000 .° 00 'TM, OI1 «1n works, Hopkins said. Of this 5750,000000 went for payrolls and approximately $250,000,000 for materials Some of this money was supplied by states, counties and munic- ^Thellverage employment by civil works from Dec. 1 to date was given as 3,000,000. The highest number at one time, Hopkins said, was slightly over 4,000,000 with a payroll just above $60,000,000 a week. Made It Go. "I think," Hopkins told.reporters, "that the civil works admmistration was successful due to literally thousands of volunteers and others everywhere who put their shoulder to the wheel and made it go. "We were told we could not put 4,000,000 men to work and later we were told .we could not demobilize them. We put the 4,000,000 men to work and they have been demoDii- U "I think that civil works during the past winter gave to these millions of people an opportunity to earn on a real job an income. "Now that it is over I think more than ever that these millions did excellent work, worked hard, earned their money and as an effort on tae part of government to meet a critical situation it did the trick and that questions of graft and pcilitlcs and inefficiencies were all relatively No Favoritism Will Be Permitted, Says Haynes Warden G. C. Haynes Has Message in Pen Paper. "The Presidio" is the name of a new monthly publication by and for inmates of the state penitentiary at Fort Madison. The first issue, just received from its editor, P. R. Holt, contains on its front cover page a large picture of Col. Glenn C. Haynes, warden. The publication is in small magazine form, with 36 pages given over to prison news, theater reviews, book criticisms, humor, poetry, sports stories, hospital items and a biographical sketch of the board of control, consisting of O. H. Michaels, E. H. Felton and H. C. White. "I am glad to talk to you men through this, your new publication," said the former Mason City man in his warden's message. "I hope The MITTTM Presidio will be welcomed and ap- ^ COL. GLENN predated by all of you. ·* -"No Favoritism."

"It is my intention as warden to see that no favoritism is permitted en the part of any employes of the institution; just as it is my intention to break up any so-called political rings or petty racketeering among the inmates. To this end all practical rules will be enforced, others that are impractical or obsolete will be abrogated. "You men should fully understand that neither myself, nor anyone working under me is in any way responsible for your Imprisonment. Now that you are here, however, our job is to keep you until you are legally released and until then to put you to work and keep you working on reasonable hours while you are here. Along with this job we have another responsibility. We must feed and clothe you, keep you well and as contented as it is possible under the circumstances. Doing Own 'Time." "You should always bear in mind the fact that you are doing your own 'time, 1 that no one is doing it for you. You can make your imprisonment as easy and agreeable as the situation permits or you can make it hard and disagreeable for yourself and to others, both inmates and officials. Therefore, play the game, you will find as you go along that I will endeavor to play my part; that you will not have to do all the getting along. "It is my desire to administer the affairs of the Institution with a minimum of disciplinary measures. If rules and regulations are violated, punishment will follow and I shall try to make the punishment fit the offense. In a rule of discipline rather than laxity, the individual inmate'fares much better. "Realizing that the rules will be enforced at all times, he will know just what to expect and can govern himself accordingly, with the result that eventually obedience will be- ine ouico. «= --- 'IT-", .at come second-nature, thereby elim- schools, roads and undertook great .^.^ the possibility^ of punish- .te» i,w» Second" grade Inmates First grade Dorsey Given 15 Days for Assault, Battery Richard Dorsey, Plymouth, was sentenced to 15 days in the county jail Friday morning by M.

This Adv. for Your Protection HE CAN'T PLANT POTATOES NOW Snow Interferes With Old Good Friday Tradition of Farmers. By ARTHUR PICKFORD Globe-Gazette Farm Editor Wow! This is a bad one. Eight inches of snow and still coming down steadily. At that, it is what all our farmers have wanted--only not just in this form. But Northern Iowa may expect anything ia the latter part of March. The farm editor was secretary of the school board in his home township for 25 years and he attended a board meeting on the third Monday in March as the law provides. His memory recalls going to that meeting on horseback, when roads were so muddy that even a buggy pulled hard; he has left home with the boys in the field, seeding grain, and he has gone in a sled and been sorry for the horses that had to stand out . Iowa in March is most independ- able But this snow will melt and go into the soil at just the right time for sprouting the grain and starting the grass. Of course it is disappointing to the farmer who always planted his early potatoes on Good Friday so that he might have new ones by the fourth of July. He is not superstitious but he probably wishes that the snow had held off a day or two. drainage projects, probably to control has been done in 25 : "Not a single county in the country was omitted. This speaks well for the co-operative effort of the American people in a crisis. "I haven't anything but the highest praise for the workers who took part and the way they met this difficult transition. It has been another indication of the stability of government in America. "While I have been disturbed in some cases where I thought busi- neSmen took advantage through contracts, when we realize that we made hundreds of thousands of contracts with businessmen where they sold to us at fair prices and made delivery under trying circumstances it seems to me that this represents a real co-operative effort between businessmen and public officials. MISS PHYLLIS THIES HONORED AT PARTY Miss Phyllis Thies, teacher Bath school No. 3, was honored at a surprise party given Thursday evening at the school house by 50 friends. The time was spent m games and music and refreshments t ment. At this point, the inmate's feet will have been planted firmly upon the ladder of rehabilitation-his ultimate goal. Amenable to Discipline. "The worthwhile citizen is one who is amenable to discipline and who knows the value of obedience. He is in complete realization of the fact that he must first learn to govern himself before he can attempt to influence others. To this end he develops self-discipline. Therefore, in this institution, during his re- habilitory period, the inmate who learns self-discipline is fitting himself to resume his place aa a worthwhile member of society when released. ."Please bear in mind the fact that if you have a real grievance or problem I am always anxious and willing to help you with it.
