.MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 15 · 1937 FIVE CONSERVATION GROUP BUYS BROWNVILLE GAME AREA IS PARADISE FOR WILD LIFE Preserve Was Sanctuary for Fowl for Many Years in Mitchell. ' What has been recognized as a paradise for wild life and ideal site lor natural beauty has been set aside for a game preserve in North Iowa. This tract, formerly owned by George Nelson, is located at the village of Brownville. A quit claim deed was signed Saturday night which gives possession o£ the area to the state conservation commission. The tract, located along the Little Cedar river, in Mitchell county, has been a sanctuary for wild life for some time. Thousands of ducks, pheasants, rabbits, squirrels and geese abound in the picturesque area. Dr. J. F. Colby. Forest City, conservation commission member, announced purchase of the tract. The country store and mill site that make up the village of Brownville are located on the spot of the first settlement in Mitchell county, and the location dates back to 1851. The old water mill there is still in operation, and does its annual .job of sawing lumber in the same style as it has for years. Brownville is situated northeast of Osage, on the Little Cedar river, and southwest of Riceville. League Aided Project. In 1932, on Aug. 1, George Nelson and Schuylar Ammon began to reconstruct the old mill dam at Brownville. They completed a log and rock dam, all but the fill, that autumn, and the water was turned behind it on Armistice day. The dam is now 210 feet wide, 110 leet of the tntal width being rebuilt. Twelve feet through, it is made o£ piling, wood vails used as tie-bars, and a fill made of dirt and rock. A total of 12,000 feet of rubble and earth completed the fill, after 465 cords of "hardheads" had been laid down. The timber work of the dam called for 7,000 lumber feet of logs. In the fall of 1932,' the farmer members of the Little Cedar conservation league seined the landlocked ponds around Brownville, and saved more than a million and a haK game fish--yes, that figure 3s accurate. Those fish were their first stock in their private game preserve. Besau With Six Ducks. Six wild ducks--alt mallards-were the start of the wild duck colony. Caught in the spring of 1933, the birds were tamed, and 150 young ducks were raised that year. None of the birds raised at Brownville, has ever been pinioned. In the fall of 1933, a limited amount of duck shooting was allowed in the.sanctuary. It was the first duck shooting on the Little Cedai in_ more than 20 years. In 193a, the duck season was the best ir. 25 years, witli 1,000 birds taken in a radius of half a dozen miles. More than 250 young ducks were raised by hand in 1935, and , thousands rested at Brownville in the fall Hights. The Little Cedar is a natural flyway: Included in the flights of 1035 were 67 of the rarely-seen wood ducks.

ROCKWELL--The young persons of the Congregational church entertained the young folks of the Baptist and Methodist churches at the lecture room Friday evening. T H E has just been Henry Ford and Edscl Ford with ilie first and 25 millionth Ford ca AT HAS never occurred before in auto-mobile history that 25 million cars of one make, bearing one name, have been manufactured under one management. The 25,00x3,000111 Ford car rolled oft' the Ford Rouge Plant production line on January 18, 19.37. 2;; million cars -since 190. . . . more than one-third of nil the cars ever liuilt . . . enough cars to transport: the entire population of the United States. The figures represent a remarkable contribution to the social welfare, the industrial stability and the general progress of our country. People respect Ford efficiency. They know Ford uses fine materials, the best workmanship at good wages, the most exact precision measurements. They know these things arc passed along to purchasers in the form of extra value. Naturally, they like to do business with such a company. That's why it has been required to produce 25 million cars. N a t u r a l l y , too, they expect in ore of a Ford car, more this year t h a n last year--more each year than the year before. They have every right to. The experience gained in building 25,000,000 cars enables Ford to produce today a really superb motor car at a really lowprice--with the beauty, comfort, safety and performance of much more expensive cars. The 1937 Ford V-8 combines advanced design, all-steel const ruction, extra body room, and brilliant brakes w i t h a choice of two V-type 8-cyliniter e n g i n e s -- t h e most modern type of power-plant. 'Ihc 85-horsepowcr engine provides top performance w i t h unusually good economy for its high power. The Go-horsepower engine gives good performance with t h e greatest gasoline mileage ever b u i l t into a Kord car-at the lowest Ford, prices in years. People expect more of a Ford car because it's a Ford--and they get more, for the same reason. It is undeniably THE QUAUTV CAR i.v THE LOW-PRICE FIELD. F O R D M O T O R C O M P A N Y
