The members of the board also decided to endorse the proposed state bill which will make it possible for libraries to get more revenue when the local authorities are willing. Since the bill is merely permissive and the whole question rests with local authorities, the board was of the opinion that the measure would pass. Discuss Schools _ How library work will develop in view of the two new junior high schools and the new library building was also discussed. A statement by Dr. C. L. Cushman, director of research and curriculum of the Denver public schools, on how positive education seeks the co-operation of the public library clarified come of the needs o£ these two junior high schools. Dr. Cushman said in the article- In progressive education each pupil is helped to make a more constructive use of the facilities of the community. All too often school authorities p e r m i t the school to provide for pupils a means of escape from certain pnases of community life. A typical ofiense is that o£ permitting the school library to stand in the way of pupils learning to use the public libraries of the community. Should Use Library ., "Part of the responsibility /or the fact that a majority of the graduates of our high schools do not make extensive use of the pubhc library in the immediate jears after graduation can be charged to this offense. Either school and public libraries should be combined or the school should take great pains to see that learning to use the community library ranks high among the objectives of the school." The picture of Newtonville'' new library in Newtonville, Mass.' was at the meeting and the members were interested in what the Newtonv-ille garden dub is plan Gain Reported The librarian's report showed a gain m circulation of 535 volumes over February, 1938.

RESUSCITATORIS LATEST ADDITION New Mechanisra With Iron Lung to Be Placed in Fire Station Complete pulmonary life saving equipment will be available to residents of Mason City by tne end of this week, it was announced Tuesday in connection with the information that the city has purchased a combination inhalatoi- and resuscitator. The new equipment, together with the iron lung purchased a year ago, will be placed in the central fire station where it will be available for emergencies, according to City Manager Herbert T. Barclay. Mr. Barclay was a member of the committee headed by te6 Sweesy, chairman, and including Drs. L. R. Woodward and William C. Egloff which was responsible for the success of the campaign to provide Mason City with an iron lung, : For Servicing Equipment ·'. The auxiliary equipment, which provides Mason City with the most up to date life saving mechanism available, was purchased entirely with city funds, Mr. Sweesy said, and the balance re- - maining from oversubscription for the iron lung will be turned over to the city to be used for servicing the equipment. The iron lung will be used only under the direction of a physician and will be available upon application to either Dr. Woodward or Dr. Egloff. "The inhalator-resuscitator will meet a long felt need," asserted Fire Chief Dan Shire. "The inhalator equipment of the P. G. and E has been of great help with us and it will include the resuscitator as well." For Salvage Sauad The life saving eouipment is recognized as standard equipment for any salvage squad, the chief pointed out. He brought out annual reports from a number of cities to sho\y the number of times the life saving squads had been called upon during the year. The inhalator-resuscitator is used in connection with drown- - mgs, gas victims, electric shocks at childbirth and for sudden attacks of heart disease, the reports showed. The equipment will be operated by the salvage squad, the chief said, and whenever possible a doctor will be present to direct the . work. It is used only in connection with artificial respiration, he stressed, and a number of the local firefighters are experts in life saving methods, several of them being qualified teachers. f Amazing 5-Tube Compact!
