We no longer heer of South Jackson avenue referred to as "Powder street." The short stretch from Sixth street southwest to the Milwaukee railroad tracks, scene of several murders and snooting episodes, is now as peaceful as a village thoroughfare. The old world vendettas, transferred to Mason City with the influx of southern European labor for local industries have apparently run then- course. Especially deadly were the feuds that existed among natives of different Balkan states. After the shootings evidence was difficult to procure for even the women and the children knew silence was the only safe course to pursue. LEGION MEMBER CAMPAIGN OPENS City Divided Into Four Sections for Cleanup Effort With the first reports made and tabulated the American Legion membership drive, which was launched April 6, is now going under full steam.

But if the cinema obviously the reflection of national taste, can take and maintain this step, it will be convincing evidence we, as a race, are showing cultural progress. It appears that "As the Earth Turns" is a significant event in the Industry. After a hiatus of a couple years there are signs pointing to a return of more real estate activity on the main tnorough- fare in the near future. In fact, one sizable project is under serious consideration.
