SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 30 1934 REMAKING FIELD AT GETTYSBURG Famous War Site Restored to 1864 Condition by Federal Agencies. GETTYSBURG, Pa. (UP)--Ap- .proximately a half million dollars is being spent by three federal agencies, . the Civilian Conservation corps, the Public 'Works administration 'and the Civil Works administration, to restore the Gettysburg battlefield to something like its condition in 1864. James R. McConaghie, who is in charge of the reforestation and restoration work, said today that more than 400 members of the CCC and 37 Public Works employes arc engaged in removing thousands of dead trees and tangled underbrush from the battlefield. McConaghie is federal director of parks in Pennsylvania and Mary- Sand. The work is being directed by a group'Of tree surgeons and landscape architects'. "A mistaken impression is that -we are modernizing the battlefield," McConaghie-said. "On the contrary we. are working to restore it to something of its condition in 1864. "Under the emergency appropriations we have engaged a staff of historians to study the field thoroughly and when their report has been completed, the work of restoring buildings and earthworks will be started." The restoration plan includes the construction; of 19 miles of foot paths so that many historical places heretofore' inaccessible to visitors may be visited; rebuilding of stone walls; resurfacing, of roads; repairing of bridges and construction of stations at the various 'park entrances. , 4 KILLED IN KANSAS CITY POLL BINGHAM WANTS ACTION IN COURT Brands Airmail Annulments "Arbitrary Abuse of Great Power."

That fel- ler was probably tellin' the truth and I admire his frankness, but you don't need to feel that way about eatin' in Mason City. "We got lots of good restaurants and cafes in our town and we take upon ourselves to invite you to patronize them. They spend a lot of money here in our town and are deserving of your patronage.
