DRUMMOND FILES PETITION; GIVES LOCAL EVIDENCE Maintains Rates Paid Here Not Preferential to River Cities. Freight rates on iron and steel articles in carloads from Chicago and other Illinois points to Mason City'was under attack before Examiner Disque of the interstate commerce commission in a hearing at Sioux City last week because the Missouri river cities in their complaint seeking lower rates had alleged tlie railroads maintained preferential rates to Mason City to the disadvantage of distributors located at Omaha. Nebr., Sioux City and Sioux Falls, S. Dak. B. J. Druramond, manager of the transportation department of the Mason City Chamber of Commerce, attended the hearing, filed a petition in intervention and submitted evidence on behalf of Mason City distributors showing that the present rates to Mason City are not preferential but are maintained as the result of orders of the interstate commerce commission affecting rates to the twin cities of Minnesota. That as Mason City is intermediate on routes to the twin cities such rates cannot lawfully be exceeded to Mason City. Under the interstate commerce act the commission's orders for the removal of preferential rates may be removed by the railroads either by lowering the rates to the com- DISTINGUISHED LIONS TO ATTEND MASON CITY PARTY WEDNESDAY NIGHT plaining cities or increasing the rates to the preferred points hence the necessity for Mason City, as a defensive measure, was required to show its rates were not preferential in order to foresail a possibility that rates to Mason City might be increased. From evidence adduced at the hearing it is believed by Mr. Drummond that Mason City has shown it is not a preferred point. The commission will, however, determine the issue involved. Briefs and arguments are due to be filed in 30 days. VINCENT C. HASCALL Omaha, First Vice President of Lions International IKA W. JONES Clear Lake, District Governor, 9-A, Iowa Lions EDWAUD C.

Post-Easter topics engaged the attention of Masou City ministers their sermons Sunday. While not as high as during the late Lenten season and Easter, the attendance n most churches was excellent, ministers reported. "In Luke 24, 36-43, where the account is given of Jesus as he appears before his disciples Easter evening and dispels their fear and doubts we have an example of how Jesus meets every man and removes every hindrance to faith," said the Rev. O. L. N. Wigdahl at the Trinity Lutheran church. "The risen Christ showed them the nail prints in his hands and feet and the mark of the spear thrust in his side and the disciples while they still disbelieved for joy saw their doubts of the resurrection removed one by one. However had the disciples not been gathered together and been concerned about their Lord they would not have experienced this wonderful joy at his appearance to them. Mr. and Mrs. R. W. Black presented their infant son. William David, for Christian baptism. Life Alternates. "Life alternates and the alternatives come frequently and in rapid successes,*' stated the Rev. Walter Kampen of Central Lutheran church in his Sunday morning strmon. "Today we may live lightly, carefree; tomorrow may find us heavily bearing a yoke. One day we skip happily along vibrant, buoyant, gay with the throb and job of living; the next day may find us marching solemnly to the slow procession of the dirge. One day we might question lightly the meaning of a cross; the next day we might well know fully its meaning of sacrifice and denial. "One day we are athrob to life's glorious adventures and mission; the next day we are dismayed and hurt, confused and disheartened. One day our faith is a glorious shining light, something confdent and easy and we walk along hand in hand with our God contentedly grateful, believing all gladly, voicing our praises with alleluiahs and in superlatives; another day finds us prostrate in a weight of despair, our spirit within cold and numb, our hand reaching out to no Power or Way, not caring to take one more stumbling step, guardedly asking the Validity and Truth of this and that." Has call of Omaha Will Give Speech Three District Heads Included in List of Guests. A. number of distinguished members of the organization will be here for the Lions club party to be held at the Hotel Hanford Wednesday night, at which time an attendance of 300 is expected.

I O W A "Unreality" was the subject of the lesson-sermon in the Church of Christ, Scientist Sunday. The Golden Text was from Proverbs 12:5, "The thoughts of the righteous are right: hut the counsels of the wicked are deceit." The lesson-sermon comprised quotations from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook. "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. One of the Bible citations read: "And God spake all these words, ! saying, I am the Lord thy God, I which have brought thee out of the I land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them:" (Ex. 20:1-5). Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook was the following: "We lose the high signification of omnipotence, when after admitting that God, or good, is omnipresent and has all-power, we still believe there is another power, named evil. This belief that there is more than one mind is as pernicious to divine theology as are ancient mythology and pagan idolatry" (p. i -169). Barney Sweeney Has Cares in Car With Light That Failed Apparently it was written in the stars that Barney Sweeney. 835 East State street, was not to arrive home Sunday evening without his troubles. A short circuit developed in the electric system of his car at the intersection of State street and Delaware avenue. The fire department was called and firemen extinguished the blaze with a hand pum£ about 7:45 o'clock Sunday evening. Although slightly damaged by fire, the car appeared worthy of transporting Mr. Sweeney to his home. He climbed aboard, but as the earth turns, so darkness crept over State street. Mr. Sweeney motored eastward to Rock Glen but his car was without lights. Turning on to Rock Glen from State street was Dr. B. Raymond Weston, 21 Rock Glen. The cars collided and Mr. Sweeney's car tipped over. Both cars were damaged. Brother of Mason Cityan Appointed to T D ' ' i rect or at the Y. M. (J.
