The Cerro Gordo Rifle club is making arrangements for another course in rifle instruction, primarily for boys of draft age, but open to others who wish to participate, President Carl Johannsen announced Tuesday. An organization meeting will be held at the Y. M. C. A. Hi-Y room Friday evening at. 8 o'clock. AH persons interested have been invited to attend. Purpose of the class is to give boys a preliminary course in rifle ' practice such as is given in the army and navy, Mr. Johannsen stated. It is being given at the request of the war department through the National Rifle association. Rules and regulations for the course are made by the war department. The club has the rifles, a range on the top floor of the Y. M. C. A. and an outdoor range east of the city. A school of instruction of the same type last year had an enrollment o£ 26 of draft age, besides 35 members of the CPA. Most of these 26 are now in the service and at least one has distinguished himself in the field of gunnery. Everett Wood, one member o£ the class, is an aerial gunner instructor. If there is enough interest another class will be organized for persons from 12 years of age and up, Mr. Johanssen said. Joel Hanes will be the instructor in charge. He will be assisted by as many qualified assistants as will be needed to handle the work. The Cerro Gordo Rifle club was given an award for outstanding service in the training of men last CARL JOHANSSEN --Club President --Photo by Lock year.

He will appear Wednesday evening at 8 o'clock speaking on "The Economic Costs of Peace." "Do not let the fact that Dr. Cox comes from a neighboringv community cause you to misjudge the authority of his insights, for perhaps no minister anywhere has more of a right to speak on labor and economic problems than has he," said Doctor Marvin B.

J. Jensen, member of the Cerro Gordo county Victory garden committee, on the KGLO Forum Monday night. Mr. Jensen pointed out that the Iowa Garden Guide will help the prospective gardener to plan his garden. The committee plans on receiving 5,000 copies in all from the Iowa State college extension service.-A copy o£ the guide may be obtained by mailing a penny postcard to the county extension agent in Mason City and noting a desire lor same. "The Garden Guide will tell you what to plant, the best kind of garden plot p how much to plant* about seed treatment, the best varieties of vegetables for Iowa, how to plant, how to care for the plants and something about weed and pest control," Mr. Jensen said. It was stressed by the speaker that seed wastage this year must be avoided. He said that using the garden guide and'dne'of the many seed catalogs now available will aid prospective gardeners in their garden planning down to the last seed. It was pointed out that the year 1944 is one of the most important in history, as Jar as food production is concerned. We will probably have to feed many millions of people through the 1944-45 winter and provide them seed to plant the ravaged fields of Europe in the spring of 1945," he said. "Naturally," he continued, "the more food people grow in their back yards and nearby empty lots, the less they will take from the commercial canncrs." Mr. Jensen said that the local garden committee plans on doing most of the things this year and perhaps a few others that were performed for gardeners in this area last year. Those who- are looking for lots on which they can plant a garden are again referred to any real estate office in town and to R. E. Homey and R. C. Keister. "Those who are looking for someone io plow^ for them rnay again telephone number 1100," he pointed out. Although barnyard fertilizer is scarce, Victory garden fertilizer-the commercial variety--will be available, he said. The climax of the gardening season, it was stated, will be the Victory Garden show at the North Iowa fairgrounds next fall. "Frankly, the committee was very disappointed in the lack or entries last September," he added "There were a couple of hundrct dollars offered in cash prizes, l)u eemingly all the gardeners hac aved so much money by growing heir own food that they weren' nterested in cash prizes. We hop his year it will be different--a !ar as the entries are concerned." Lakeside Butter Plai R. O. Storvick, who for 12 years was manager of the Iowa Jrand Creameries, Inc., in Mason City, is now assuming the man;] hip of s the newly established Lakeside Butter company pla Vaterloo, it was announced Tuesday, The Lakeside Butter company , s a division of Safeway Stores, nationwide retail store system, and is responsible for the procurement, packaging and distribu- ion to Safeway retail outlets of all butter supplies. At the new plant in Waterloo, ' which will be managed by Mr. jtorvick, the Lakeside Batter company expects eventually to concentrate butter from the entire middlewest, including the states of North and South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri. The butter will be concentrated at Waterloo and packaged there, after which" it will be reshipped to the Safeway store outlets in Virginia, Maryland, District o£ Columbia, New, York, New Jersey and the surrounding area, as well as in the Pacific coast states of Washington, Oregon and California. "We feel very fortunate in having Mr. Storvick with us as we feel he is one of the best qualified * men in the industry, both from the viewpoint of technical supervision in the manufacture and distribution of butter, as well as in the actual mechanics of handling the butter right from the churn to the consumer," states L. A. Johnson, general manager of the Lakeside Butter company.
