Better prices for beets are ex pected to put the sugar industry on a more comparable basis wit other farm crops and as resu] restore the acreage which wen out of production in 1943. A. G. Quamme, manager of th American Crystal Sugar compan plant in Mason City, is attendin .the meeting, which is expecte to continue until Friday. The position of the sugar in dustry was pointed out by C. R Oviatt, head of the sugar bei section of the sugar. branch i the. war food administration, i hearings opened on the wage rat' to be paid sugar beet field work ers in 1944. "Sugar beets can be processed as soon as 6 months after planting," Oviatt said, "whereas production from sugar cane requires upward of a year. A large beet acreage of 1944 will give us not only this immediate need of sugar production, but also through util- $970 Spent on Polio Victims in 1943 'arents-Wives MEN AND WOMEN IN THE SERVICE OF THEIR COUNTRY Tour help is needed in compiling the irld war II history of Cerro Gordo unty men and women. :he only way the , FRIENDS OF LIBRARIES can get this vital information y 'you procuring one of the ques- nafrcs for each one of your family pn the service, fill out as m a n y of the questions as you knov/ and mail or bring the Mason City Globe-Gazette, from ·yhere it will be fonvordcd to the lends of Libraries files at the Mason v library. fou may receive the questionnaire at I 1 ho Globe-Gazette or tho Mason City library.

The announcement of the WFA assuring growers around 512.50 a ton for beets of average quality should result in a substantial increase in beet acreage." The submarine menace against coastal shipping is ended, he said, but actual sugar supplies have been greatly reduced. He added: 'Our supply picture changed from adequate is now supplies IT'S NOW MA.T. WILLSON-- Meredith Willson, Mason City's outstanding contribution to radio and music, has been promoted from captain to major, it was learned hero Monday. Maj. Willson, who is stationed at Los Angeles, was in the hospital over the Christmas season and when he returned to his desk he received a Christmas present in the form of this promotion, he informed his aunt, Mrs. Charles H. Barber of Ma'son City. Corrective Operations Were Given, Expenditures by the Cerro Gordo county chapter of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis the past year were 5970, with every indication that demands for funds are increased, according to A. J. Thompson, assistant secretary of the organization. The Cerro Gordo county chapter in reviewing; expenditures cover- nsr the past 12 months for aid to nfantile paralysis victims again ails attention to the fact that the past year, more than in any previ- us year, has brought requests for id in long standing cases. This indicates that as the community becomes better informed on the actis'ities of the chapter such calls will become more numerous and as such cases, in most nslances, involve hospitalizallon 'or long periods and in many cases corrective operations of one kind and another, they are much more costly than the average new case where the assistance necessary quite often will consist only in the services of the nurses which have been provided for the county, trained in the Kenny method. This forecast of the future confirms the chapter's oft repeated statement that if it is to remain always prepared to meet these increasing demands the community must not let down, even for one year, in 'its support of this cause, but instead must, in so far as possible, increase this support so that these extra demands on the funds of the chapter may be met and also that the reserve may be added to each year, over and above the expenditures of the previous year. Thus the chapter may . at all limes be prepared for any extraordinary expenditures w h i c h would occur in the event of even a mild epidemic in this community. As an indication of the varied scope and extent of the demands «v- 1* T BACKING THE A T T A C K -Backing the polio fund campaign is Elmer H.

Hundreds o[ victims of the unconquercd scourge of infantile paralysis will benefit from this gesture of patriotism on America's health front. This year's March of Dimes occurs Jan. 11-31. Cured of Polio He's Now on Battle Front An outstanding example of how infantile paralysis can be cor- ·ected and even cured by methods now in use throughout the nation, ecause of liberal public offerings to this fund, comes from Forest City. Contracting the disease in September, 1930, was Arden C. Lyng, 'oungest of 8 children, son of Mrs. ielen Lyng of Forest City.' Arden now a staff sergeant in the United States armed forces.
