Pine for Damages A jury of 9 men and 3'women, most of them from rural homes, had been picked Tuesday noon to hear the evidence in the appeal by Charles A. Pine from damages awarded to him by a sheriff's jury in condemnation proceedings for the Mason City municipal airport. Presentation of evidence began Tuesday afternoon after the jurors had heard Ira W. Jones, attorney for Mr. Pine, and City Solicitor Charles E. Cormvell of Mason City, state their cases. Mr. Fine is asking $4,950 damages. The city condemned a 100 foot wide, 3 acre strip across the exact middle of Mr. Fine's 43 acre farm in order to construct an open drainage ditch, Mr. Jones pointed out. The ditch is in effect a storm sewer for the airport runways, he declared, and is likely to subject part of Mr. Pine's pasture to overflow at the outlet. The duty, of the jury is to determine the value of the farm before the ditcli was constructed and afterward, said Mr. Cornwell, the difference between the 2 figures representing the amount of damages to which Mr. Pine is entitled. He called attention to the fact that the drainage ditch does not ha"e its outlet into Willow creek on the Fined $25 for 300 AT ANNUAL Employment of Minors G. F. Hochwender, manager of the H. H.

It was brought out that the condemnation does hot change the title to the 3 acres on which the ditch was constructed but merely gives the city right to construct and maintain the ditch. Mr. Jones insisted the ditch would necessitate air. Pine building a bridge for his cattle to cross to their pasture during high water. Members of the jury are Forrest Lair, Genevieve Oswald, Axel Anderson, J. S. Meehan, and Victor Tiedcman, all living on Mason City rural routes; C. H.

Hanford MacNider, president and general manager of the company, who is in service in the southwest Pacific. Sixty-two em- ployes of the company have'now entered the service. Mr. MacDonald . complimented the employes at the plant for doing an excellent job in spite of handicaps. "I want to especially commend' you on the excellent safety record," he said.. "You have just completed 631 days without a lost time accident and considering the conditions prevailing during the period that this record was made, this,is certainly a grand showing and I hope we will achieve another 1,000 days' record. "Our sales department, laboring under wartime conditions, facing governmental restrictions of many kinds, is to be congratulated on the snowing that it has made. In fact, every department has done a swell job and we can well be A LINE O'PIPE Stick to the Pipe--Let the Smoke Blow Where It Will By T.

The industry in 1942 shipped a total of 185,000,000 barrels of cement, it was pointed out. While final figures for 1943 are not yet available, it is estimated that the 1943 shipments will be in the neighborhood o£ 120,000,000 bar- els, a decrease of some 35 per ent. Some authorities in the industry think that 1944 shipments viU drop to 75,000,000 barrels. This would mean a decrease of GO per cent from 1942 shipments. 'I do not believe that our shipments will show a like decrease as ve did not participate in any substantial governmental business during 1943, only about 6 per cent of our 1943 shipments going to governmental projects," Mr. MacDonald stated. "We feel that our 1944 shipments should approximately equal our 1943 shipments." Thirty year watches were awarded to Peter Andersen, secretary-treasurer; C. A.

ASKING LABOR TO INDULGE IN WAR BOND BUYING. A w Not but what labor will indulge in war bond buying to the full extent of its ability. But when all the blood has been squeezed out of a turnip, it is rather an insipid looking object. ^ w It would seem that some of the sreat minds in Washington considered it treason for labor to ask for more wages, but jrood business to hike the cost of the things labor must purchase. It's a great life. --·-- With the present scarcity of automobile traffic jay walking has become a popular pastime. Stop and go signs mean but little to pedestrians and persons flit back and forth across the streets between intersections with never a care or lookout thought. But we did not give up hope of bringing to pass such a boon to readers of mystery detccative story novels. So when we met up with Miss Barretle in the library we put the matter squarely up to her. We explained at some length what a nuisance it was, and how difficult a feat it was, to go in the buck room and dig out one of these books from among thousands of other books. We told her how much the mystery lovers would appreciate being able to stand in the midst of a whole flock of de- tccative stories well knowing that wherever they looked or what ever they choose, it would be a book after their own hearts.

" Principal James Rae indicated that Mason City is not among the sites being considered for the remaining 32 tournaments at the sectional level. However, unce more our efforts were n and v and exceedingly n. For though we pleaded until great briny tears rolled from our manly cheeks and fell with a dull sickening thud on the welt polished floor, the librarian refused to become impressed. She said that finding a mystery book should be no mystery to those who solved, or tried to solve, mysteries. And rather insinuated that if we were so darn dumb we were unable to find a mystery book, we could so inform one of the gals or her personally and a whole armful of them would be provided on short notice. Well, anyway, we tried. TAKES NAVY POSITION Bancroft--Miss Maureen Quinn, daughter oE Mr. and Mrs. W. E.

A. and every time their bigger and better !i's catch them snitching a few straws from the family broom and chase them out of the kitchen, the said straw snitchers gets a mad on at the democrats. On the other hand, did the government release, or permit the making of, a few million cleaners, the administration would no doubt receive the unanimous support of all pipe loving smokers come next election day. ·es-« ved ired Y ES.SOLDlER.we'rebackingyou to the limit!"

Your GtuneA, · When you are not feeling well, and are tempted to buy some highly advertised remedy for which great claims are made, ask yourself a few simple questions. What is the background of the manufacturer of the remedy? Has he been educated in medicine, pharmacy, or chemistry? Are the claims made for his remedy based on scientific fact? Is it not possible that you have been influenced by exaggerated statements? Don't risk your health by experimenting with medicines of unknown value. Consult your physician.
