MASON CITYANS AT DES MOINES TB CONFERENCE Paul McAuley Gives Cerro Gordo County Case Finding Report Miss Margaret Johnson, director, and Miss Evelyn Taylor, nurse, both of the Public Health Nursing association; Paul Me- ,,,,,,, Auley, county president, and E..A. P°. E ? U Norerri, state director, were representing Mason City at the state tuberculosis association two day convention in Des Moines Thursday. . Mr. Norem will preside at the Friday afternoon general session of the convention and will further the invitation by Mason City to bring the 1940 convention here. County Report Given 'A report of the 1938 Cerro Gordo county tuberculosis case finding campaign was presented at the meeting Thursday by Mr. MrAuley in behalf of Dr. R. E. Smiley of Mason City who was unable to attend because o£ illness. Results of the campaign as outlined by the report revealed that 1,453 persons were tested in 1938, 132 were positive reactors, 87 were found positive by x-ray, 22 active cases were discovered and 9 persons were admitted to sanatoria. Out of the total population of 375 Mexicans, 25 were positive reactors, 21 were found positive by x-ray, 10 were active cases and 2 were admitted to sanatoria. Reveals Bed Shortage The report pointed out that the most serious problem was among the Mexican population of the county. It was shown that there are no cases of active tuberculosis among the Negro population which totals 322 in the county. Another outstanding fact shown in the report was the shortage of sanatorium bed space. It was reported that out of the 22 active cases discovered last year, only nine are in sanatoria. No persons were on the waiting list although there should be 13, according to the speaker. Correction Hoped The report revealed that infected persons are not impressed with the seriousness of their condition and nurses find them eating with the rest of the family with no provision made for proper sterilization of dishes. The lack of bed space in sanatoria was termed as a "dragging brake" in the report. It was pointed out that during 1939 the county association hopes to correct the fault of inadequate supervision oE patients staying at home and the problem of active cases returning from sanatoria. Passes Through Third Baptism of Fire in Legislature Unharmed DES MOINES, (#)--The state planning board, target of the first bill introduced in the Iowa senate this session. Thursday passed through its third baptism of fire unharmed. The board was the subject of two hours of fruitless discussion in the upper house Thursday morning. The third-time "charm" was working for the planning board, instead of the bill to abolish it, which was introduced by Senator C.'Colfax Smith (R), Clarksville. Withdraws From Amendment After a struggle, Smith obtained permission to withdraw his name from an amendment which would spell death for the greater Iowa commission as well as the planning board. Senator E. P. Donohue (R), New Hampton, majority floor leader, who admitted authorship of the amendment which Smith had filed unwillingly, then took up its sponsorship as his own pro- Firemen Receive Two Calls in Short Order Firemen received tsvo calls within 3 minutes of each other Wednesday evening. ., ; '.The..first was 'at 8:34 ; o'clock .when.-a- fcar'i -owned . by; 'Albert Hed'gecock', I4l0 : North Federal avenue, caught lire in front of his home. While still working on this lire, another alarm was received by the firemen when a smokestack rusted from the chimney and collapsed at the home of Ellen Overbeck, 323 Twenty-ninth street southwest. I started out with only one thing in mind--the abolition of the planning board," Smith explained. "I had no ammunition in my gun for the greater Iowa commission." Cites New Jersey Example Smith added he had no intention, either of setting up another agency, to take the planning board's place. The amendment, now sponsored by Donohue, would impose functions of the planning board and | "^'X-v greater Iowa commission upon the state executive council. Donohue said the scheme has been "very successful" in New Jersey. The greater Iowa commission is a three-member board created by the 1935 legislature lor the pur- Postoffice Issues World's Fair Stamp The New York World's fair commemorative stamp will be issued April 1, and will be on sale at the Mason City postoffice shortly after that date. Postmaster A. M. Schanke announced Thursday. The special postage stamp is In the three cent denomination. The central design is a modernistic representation of the trylon and perisphere, outstanding architectural features of the fair. All lettering is in white gothic and the top and bottom edges of the stamp are bordered by white colored finishing lines. Collectors desiring first day cancelations of the new stamp may send not more than 10 addressed covers to the postmaster of New York, N. Y., with a cash or postal" money order to cover the cost of the stamps. The new stamp will be placed on sale at the Philatelic agency on April 2. pose of "co-ordinating the agricultural, the industrial, labor and commercial groups of Iowa for the betterment of economic conditions in the state." The planning board, which had been in operation for three years, received recognition from the 1937 legislature in an act authorizing it to "study the physical, social and economic resources of the state." It received no appropriation, however. Says Authority Exceeded Smith charged the planning board had exceeded authority granted it by the legislature. "They didn't exceed their authority," Donohue countered. "But the governor exceeded his authority in turning over $3,000 a month to them." (Former Gov. N e l s o n G. Kraschel allotted $3,000 a month to the state planning board from the ?500,000 emergency conservation works fund placed in his hands by the 1937 legislature.) "I feel the planning board in the past has done considerable good. I feel that the greater Iowa commission has done considerable good," Donohue added. Lundy Prepares Chan ire The senate halted its discussion of the bill to abolish the planning board, when Senator Hugh Lundy (R), Albia, a member of the greater Iowa commission, asked for time to prepare an amendment incorporating Senator Howard Baldwin's proposal for a nine- member "expansion committee" to exploit Iowa. The senate passed a bill to give Y.M.CA.BoysWork Group Plans Meeting The boys' work committee of the Mason City Y. M. C. A. will hold a meeting in Dr. C. E.
