TUESDAY, APRIL 3, 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE NINE SHOWS NEW TREND IN FURNITURE Wolf Store Display Is Floor Index 70,000 Square Feet of Space Allotted to Furnishings. Mier Wolf and Sons store, 311 South Federal avenue, will be represented at the builders- home furnishing show at the high school gymnasium, April 4-5-6, with an exhibit of some of the newest and finest in modern art furnishings, according to the managers of the store. As extensive as the exhibit will be, however, it will be only an index to the-permanent displays at the store, to which 70,000 square feet of floor space has been allotted. Build Confidence. Managers of the store are looking forward to 1934 with optimism and a feeling of confidence that the "mysterious corner" has at last been turned. This optimism, according to the managers, is typical of the organization which is aiming to build confidence by a slow and patient rather than mushroom growth. Equally important and vitally significant to the building of confidence, is the restoration of quality in merchandise to its rightful place. The trend of quality is up and the Mier Wolf and Sons store is behind it with the belief that no sign could be more promising. Furnishings Featured. A numeration of the various lines of well known, nationally advertised merchandise is nol necessary in this article but the bouse furnishing department features refrigeration plants of appeal and economy imported and domestic dinnerware, glassware, silverware and standard makes of washing machines.

Colorless floor coverings of lour or five years back arc merely memories today. The shopper can select from the stock of the Mier Wolf and Sons store in nearly an almost unlimited range of colors and patterns in wall to wall carpet. Bugs Featured. Selection of carpet for any room is an important task and should require study with the assistance of persons trained in problems of this type. Rugs ire featured at the store in .arge assortments. American rugs of oriental design are especially featured with beautiful patterns so like the hand- woven articles of the far east that the eye can scarcely de- ;ect the difference. The drapery department is stocked with the latest designs and materials of this type. The fabrics are smart and were selected by experts and adapted to modern homes by craftsmen schooled in the art. Sp»cial appointments may be made in the evening or other times the store is not open. duction, in which the south and Jie northwest predominate. The state of Alabama, for example, combines both lumber and steel to rank high in construction materials. The German Baptist church at Aplington and the United Brethren church at Dawson will erect new edifices in the near future to replace those recently destroyed by fire. The Mt. Pleasant council has adopted a resolution of necessity calling for the installation of four blocks of new sewer line. Large Number in Building Operations More than 1,100,000 persons, of one-tenth of the manufacturing workers in the country, were engaged in 1929 in the manufacture of materials, equipment and supplies for construction. The value of products was $5,500,000,000, or one- eighth of all manufactured products in 1929. This manufacturing activity was carried on in every state in the union. A study of the men employed in this work shows,, moreover, that many states not normally considered leaders in industrial production show very great dependence on construction. This is due largely to lumber pro- A MILLION DOLLARS TO O^ LEND Let Johns-Manville Finance Your Home INVESTMENTS!
