/,' 4 :. . . .Tuesday, Feb. 8, 194* HASON CITY GLOBE-QAZETTE Hansen Gives Story About Playgrounds x The first year ol playground or- -ganization in Mason City, 1939, found 6 play centers located throughout the city.. This number increased to 9 in 1941, several of which were-only opened one session a day while the others ,. functioned 3 sessions. Last year there were 6 center? located at the . following places: McKinley school, West Park, Grant school, Madison school, Roosevelt school fad Gar ·field school. These facts were broughout out by Volney Hansen, high school faculty member and a playground director, on the KGLO Forum Monday evening. His subject was "The History ol Mason City Playgrounds." Mr. Hansen said that the playgrounds were supervised by men ·who were qualified by having previous experience. The grounds ' were supervised during the morn. inr hours, 9-12; afternoon session ·from l:3*-5:3» and "the evening session from 7 o'clock until participants were persuaded to quit Play.. ' - The program consisted of many and varied games, such as song games, dances, running games primary games working up to games of skill as volley ball, soft -ball, and horse shoe pitching _ Handicraft was taught in the form clay modeling, woodwork anc - paper work. "The playgrounds served for - more than just a place to send . .children to play," he said. "A large . number of working mothers sen their children to a near-by playground so that they might be relieved of .the responsibility for . their care during the day," Mr Hansen said. It was pointed out, too, that the play centers were chosen by zoning in regard to juvenile delinquency cases. "In spite of the alarming in;crease of juvenile delinquency throughout the nation, reports here in Mason City show a decided decrease. Let us compare the' situation of past years with today," the local teacher said. In 1936, he pointed out, there were 354 cases of delinquency. Through the intervening years the number has decreased .until this fiscal year, which began in April, : police records show there, have been only 22 reported cases of juvenile delinquency in Mason City; : ' "On a survey of the city, over a period of 6 or 7 years, there seems to be an even occurrence of misdemeanors, with the exception of the summer months when the - number of cases has had a decided decline. Let us keep in mind .the "playground program," Mr. Hansen concluded. DIES AT AREDALE .. Aredale--Mrs. W. A. Wallace died Monday at 11 a. m. at the home of her daughter, Mrs. M. C.
