It was a wild tale that a cowboy recently told local police officers about riding a horse from Oklahoma to Minnesota without going through Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska or the Dakotas. The old boy had a big hat but no horse to support his story, but the tale was no wilder than some of the excuses given police Friday night when they tagged 42 cars for improper lights. "Well, sir, that light was on just a few moments ago--" It's an old story to the force. The police never did find out how the cowboy actually got to Minnesota and neither did they learn in the ins and outs of a- number of the excuses that were presented by motorists. Get Little Tickets. But 42 persons in Mason City received little tickets which were special invitations to go to the nearest garage and have the lighting equipment on the car corrected. And these tickets had to have the mechanic's "0. K." and be returned to the station before the driver was free of the anticipation of being arrested for a violation of the law. "From now on until there is a distinct improvement in the lighting of cars driven in Mason City, the drivers of cars with improper lights will be given summons tickets," said Chief Harold Wolfe of the police department. The Iowa State Highway Patrol is co-operating with the police on this drive. Enrollment Grows. Enrollment for traffic school con- .inued to grow for next Thursday's session at the police station. Friday night the following were arrested : or traffic violations: Dallas Cornstock, 1801 Carolina avenue southeast, passing a stop sign; Charles Meyer, 2413 Jefferson avenue southwest, improper parking; Paul Barclay, 1015 Carolina avenue southeast, passing a stop sign; Orville Ibson, 1303 Pennsylvania avenue southeast, double parking; Philo Stephens, 204 Sixteenth s t r e e t northwest, parking too near a thea- ;er entrance. A car driven by John Mullaney, 727 Fourth street southeast, collided with a car driven by Lee Hubbard, 326 Third street southwest as Mullaney pulled away from the curb at 24 South Federal avenue about 9:30 o'clock Friday evening.

CENSUS ALMOST COMPLETED FOR LOCAL BUSINESS 'ew Firms Which Refused to Give Data Urged to Co-Operate. The census of business which is being taken by WPA enumerators s almost completed in Mason City, t was reported by the district su- iervisor, Lester E. Van Pelt of Decorah. There are, however, a few 'irmg in Mason City which have efuscd to co-operate by giving out he information. .

Firms which do not desire to jive information direct to the enumerators may send it to Wasb- ngton to the bureau of the census. Businessmen's organizations and jusinessmen generally have long complained about the lack of really adequate statistics on volume of business, employment and other joints covered in this census. Simi- ar efforts which have been previously made have been extremely valuable from a statistical and ) 1 a n n i n g standpoint. There are :herefore, many reasons, it was jointed out by the chamber, w/iy msiness should co-operate and give :he census takers the data requested. C. SERVICES HELD Benevolence Lodge No. 145 A.F.

Thomas L, Connor Studied Electrical Engineering at University, But Entered Gas Division of Industry; First Aid Instructor. Aside from his regular occupation au gas superintendent of the People's Gas and Electric company, Thomas L. Connor's interests center largely on his duties as first-aid and life-saving chairman of the Cerro Gordo county chapter of the Red Cross. He is recognized by Mrs. Mabel Quintard, executive secretary of the local chapter, and others who have seen him in action as an outstanding instructor in first-aid. In a period of almost nine years he has taught tirst-aid a total of 1.500 hours. It \viis Significant. It was probably because of the significance of first-aid to his own industry that Mr. Connor first became interested in the volunteer movement that has gained such a headway in this county under his leadership. As superintendent of the gas division of the local utility Mr. Connor had a real assignment at the time natural gas made its way to Mason City from the Texas oil fields. The tremendous task of con-*' verting the thousands of gas burning appliances for the new fuel and enlarging the pipeline system was one that necessitated organizing ability as well as technical knowledge of the new product. Took Up Electrical Engineering. Strangely enough Mr. Connor, in fitting himself for his life work, had in mind an electrical career. He grew up at Alta and there was graduated from the high school, following which he went to the University of Iowa, where he took electrical engineering and received his degree. Mr. Connor's switch to the gas phase of the utility business came about in a manner that so often determines a man's occupation. He came in contact with the United Light and Power company immediately upon being graduated from THOMAS L. CONNOR. school. He was given a job in the company's construction program at Iowa City. It was while engaged in' this work that opportunity presented itself to enter the gas division of the Mason City company and Mr. Connor, believing the offer was the proverbial opportunity knocking at his door, accepted the position. Gas Consumption Doubled. That was in 1917. Mr. Connor held the position of assistant gas superintendent a few months when he was advanced to his present position. During the time he has been here the gas consumption of the city has more than doubled, according to Mr. Connor, Mr. Connor was married in 1916 to Miss Helen Beecher. They have three children, Mary Agnes, Paul and Patricia Ann. Citizens returning from points south with reports that shrubbery ;here is a full month ahead of ours. The Legion golf course starts it spring campaign for members. j Complaints come in from outlying- districts that boys are swimming n the brick yard and cement plant onds. People with dogs complain about ;he ordinance; people with gardens complain about the dogs. Somebody gets the bright idea of a picnic; everybody else gets a cold acting on the idea. The storm windows make the home feel stuffy. We take the good old slogan out of the mothballs and once more begin to speak proudly of "the coolest spot." Tulips start bursting into flame. . Herbert Hirsch reports seeing the first frog of the season. To Mr. Hirsch the robin and bluebird are harbingers but the frog, the essence of springtime. Charles Weaver strats talking about the days he went fishing up along the Winnebago river. The Forest Park contingent gets out on bicycles again. The Junior Chamber of Commerce starts talking about a cleanup campaign. THIS MIGHT REVIVE OLD ICKES-HOPKINS FEUD We don't like to think of what might happen between Secretary Ickes and Harry L. Hopkins, if the news got down to Washington that posters announcing the Thursday iiight Legion boxing show had Eddy White of the transient farm, who was outpointed in the main go by Curly Harris, identified as bein; with the PWA. The transient farm is under WPA sponsorship and the error on somebody's part is likely to precipitate another heated verbal argument between the heads of the two organizations in Washington. Simile: Dislike as intense as that existing between t\vo Mason City factions of th c old age revolving pension plan supporters. THIS IS ANOTHER SIGN OF SPRING It is getting late in the season for lutefisk. but M. T. Gunderson Kenyon, Minn., member of the board of the Northwestern States Portland Cement company, here during the McNider estate hearing, succeeded in getting some prepared for lunch Friday. Mrs. Barrett Hostess. LEDYARD--Mrs. V. A, Barrett entertained thc Methodist, ladies aid society at her home Thursday a f t - ernoon. Owners Change Homes. KIESTER--A deal was closed in which Olc Nelson became the new owner of thc home owned by the Matson brothers. Theodore Boettcher became thc owner of the tfbmc formally occupied by thc late Mrs. Hojran Peterson. There are more candidates for county superintendent, who have been 'waiting for a "don't choose to run" announcement from Mrs. Pearl Tannar, incumbent, before rushing into the race. Funeral Services for L i l l i a n Otto to Be Held Monday Lillian Otto, 19, of 803 Polk avenue southwest, died Friday following an illness. Funeral services will be held Monday afternoon at the Martin Schcklcr funeral home at Nora Springs. Burial will be at the Rockwell cemetery. Quirina Monteon Spanish Teacher at Morningside Enrolled as Freshman in Conservatory of Institution. SIOUX CITY--Quirina Monteon. of Mason City, a demure Mexican miss, although enrolled as a fresh- · man in the conservatory of music of Morningside college here, has made her pure Castilian earn her a position as instructor in Spanish on the school's facutly. She worked in a beet sugar factory in her home town, graduated 'roin high school and Mason City Junior college, before her ambition .0 become a music teacher led her ;o the college here. Born in Ocotlan, Jalisco, Mexico, she came to Mason City with her father and brothers when she was 8 years old. In the college conservatory students know the 22 year old Mex;can maid as a hard worker. Wanted to Sing. ^ A burning desire to sing has been j kept flaming in her heart since she worked hard long hours in the beet fields. "It was the only work we knew how to do and \ye had to eat," she explains apolegetically. For three years she took voice in Mason City under the supervision of Mrs. W. F. Ingraham, wife of the superintendent of the Milwaukee railroad for that division. In high school she sang Spanish folk songs whenever there was a demand for it at a school entertainment and was a joyous member of the glee club. She took three years of piano and soprano lessons. So she kept her desire alive until she could realize her wish to learn music in college so she could MISS QUIRINA MONTEON. teach it later on. Miss Monteon still talks and sings .with an accent. Why ? Simply because her old mother doesn't understand English and it's necessary for members of the family always to speak Spanish at home. Will Draw Her Back. The legends and superstitions of that delightful, backward, mountainous country from which she came probably will draw her back sometime, she feels. She's mighty proud of a younger brother, Cornelio, who was graduated from high school at Mason City and is assistant chief clerk of the Milwaukee at Charles City, and her older brother, Sando, who graduated from Iowa State college in civil engineering. "I didn't work much in the beet fields." she laughs. "I was much, much too small, only 8 when we came from Mexico. We worked on the sugar beets in summer and went to school in winter." That the job must have, provided her with plenty of fortitude is the conviction of her students in Spanish conversation classes. She works hard and demands hard work.

The planning committee of the Cerro Gordo county Farm Bureau 01 ganization under the chairmanship of Bari Dean met at the Y. M. C- A. to further its study of the local crop situation. Using the crop data drawn up by the committee* at an earlier meeting, work got under way on an effort to determine the effect of a cropping system on the agricultural program of the county, particularly in the livestock field. In making this study the committee is endeavoring to arrive at the maximum amount of hay and feed raised in the past and the normal grain shipments out of the county. While the course of the planning committee is to plan a long time program for agriculture, its work is expected to dovetail into the soil conservation program, the local setup for which will get under way soon. The Cerro Gorclo county committee will be made up, according' to department of agriculture regulations, of Countv Agent Marion E. Olson. Mr. Dean, J. D. Richardson, chairman of the county corn-hog committee and two others to be selected by these three. The selection of the other two members is expected to be completed soon. Cedar Rapids Woman Seeking State Office Is Mason City Visitor Mrs. Olive Johnson of Cedar Rapids was a visitor in Mason City Saturday, coming here in the interests of her candidacy for the republican nomination as secretary of state. Mrs. Johnson, a practicing attorney, served from 1927 to 1932 as clerk of the district court in Linn county. She has been active in numerous organizations. "The one thing I'm making clear in my campaign," she told a Globe- Gazette reporter, "is that I'm not expecting support because I'm a woman. If I can't stand on my record of ability and performa.nce in private and public Hfe, I deserve no consideration." "Nor have I anything but good "to say about the present secretary of state," she added. "Mrs. Miller has done a good job as secretary of state and I should be the last to deny her the credit that is due her." Mrs. Johnson is a graduate of Oberlin and of the University of Michigan. From the latter she took her law degree and she now has a daughter there. Her husband died while she was at Ann Arbor. Woman Injured in Crash at Rockwell Mrs. F. E.
