Comments indicate that advantages being offered to prospective home builders are unusually good this year and this is stimulating interest in building activity.

Menke JotS Thoughts T commission at the state house, it on Paper While Filling Out Application. What an applicant for a position in a liquor store of Iowa thinks of when he fills out-his application, was Jotted down by George Menke. Here it is: "By investing- 6 cents in stamps plus two hours of writing effort, I have my entire life history on a yellow four page liquor application as prepared by the Iowa liquor control commission. "Like all applications, It desires a complete outline which'is entirely logical. Tm wondering how with the small -number of employes on 'the will be possible to select, in fairness to all, the right applicant. "Twenty-six stores with three em- ployes at each is only 88 actual jobs, yet 35,000 persons are seeking positions. May the most deserving, the best qualified and the best teetotaler win. Meaning, of course, that all will probably say they do not favor and have never used alcoholics to any extent, even though they have patronized some bootlegger who has peddled his wares in this state. "May all the applicants be sincere in their statements and whoever is nominated let him discharge his duties with the well being of the community in mind. .May he also know the reason for state control of the hard liquor situation." STRAWS Showing Which Way the Wind Blows By E. JL N. '" ' ' ' "Praying is a beautiful thing--to the home or in church." It was Mayor John J. Bums talking on the subject of municipal matters. Whatever else is said about the city administration the past year, It will have to be admitted it furnished much excellent news copy. Nearly every council meeting was a vivid drama, every session was a good story. MAE WEST HAS FOLLOWERS Katherine Hepburn may be regard ed as the most artistic performer on the screen, but apparently Mae West has the_ greater hold on the populace, as' witness the crowds at the second run of "I'm No Angel" at a Mason City theater this week. Numerous methods of meeting a possible repetition of the bank robbery In Mason City have been suggested. One of the officials of the First National bank has taken to intensive study of the philosophy of Frederick WI1- helm Nietzsche. THIS IS FOB MEN ONLY Nietzsche's contention the male is he more beautiful of the species has a modern supporter, no less an au- hority than Dr. Louis E. Bisch, 'ounder of the psychiatry bureau of the New York police department. Dr. Blsch maintains beauty parlors exist simply because women are less beautiful than men and must resort to artificial devices in the struggle for attention. Also, and this is the unkindest, he insists woman ages much more rapidly than man, that unless she takes the most drastic precautions she will soon lose what modicum of looks she has. News note on the weaker sex: Two members of the Woman's c l u b handicraft department were forced to resign from the pottery class because they were not strong enough to handle the clay. Grace Morrison Poole, president of the General Federation of Women's clubs, won a little publicity in Mason City when a discussion of the work of the federation came up. The federation is attempting to raise J250.000 as a Grace Morrison Poole Foundation fund and one woman's comment was "What! ?250,000 to buy Grace Morrison a pool- Cerro Gordo county's place in wheat production Is shown In the fact that Burgess Can, Swale- dale, is the only resident to sign up under the provisions of the government allotment plan.

NEW RULING ON LOSS LIMITATION OF DRUG STORES Designed to Prevent Price Cutting by Larger Trade Uints. The latest order of Hugh S. Johnson, national recovery administrator, tightening the "loss limitation" provision in the code for the retail drug trade has been received in the office of the Retail Merchants association. The new provision, which is effective April 8, is designed to help the smaller units in the drug business. Following is the new rule which takes the place of article VHI, section l, of the druggists' code: 'Inasmuch as the vast preponderance of drug store products are distributed through small drug retailers who are unable to purchase on a quantity basis but who perform services which are essential to the welfare of those in their communities and whereas each services cannot adequately be performed through the facilities provided by their competitors and whereas, in some cases sales are made to consumers by such competitors at prices below the lowest cost of purchase, normally obtainable for such merchandise by small drug retailers and whereas in most instances such sales prices are not a true indication of the general level of prices of such competitors and no general benefit to those in the community accompanies the same, but such prices are in fact in the nature of bait offers of merchants to attract trade, "It is hereby declared an unfair trade practice and is prohibited by this code for any drug retailer to sell any drugs, medicines, cosmetics, toilet preparations or drug sundries at a. price below the manufacturer's wholesale list price a dozen, provided, however, that in the case of biologicals or other of the above mentioned products which are not customarily sold in dozen or greater lots the code authority .may fix a comparable unit quantity and provided further that any discount, free deal, or rebate which is made available to all purchasers of dozen lots or comparable quantities, shall be considered as part of the manufacturer's wholesale list price." Frank Nugent Rites to Be Thursday at St. Joseph Church Funeral services for Frank Nugent, 53, Mason City contractor, who died at a local hospital Tuesday afternoon following a five weeks' illness, will be held at the St. Joseph Catholic church at 9:30 o'clock Thursday morning.

SEEKS NO CREDIT FOR SUCCESS OF CORN-HOG PLAN Cerro Gordo Farm Bureau Only Seeking to Help in Recovery Job. That the Cerro Gordo county Farm Bureau claims no glory for the success of the corn-hog program in the county and will not exert any influence on its operation is expressed in a statement prepared by a committee of the board of directors, made public Wednesday. The statement, prepared by Jim Rooney, Dougherty, and Andrew Olson and S. A. Mathre, Mason City, reads as follows: "That the Cerro Gordo county Farm Bureau does not in any way claim credit for whatever success might be attained for the corn-hog program, but is willing to co-operate with any or all farm organization for the success of the national recovery program as we have in the past with the administration. "We feel the first order of business for every farm organization in the corn belt should be to help put over the corn-hog program."
