AT Danish Masquerade Malek's Accordion Band, · PUBUC INVITED · Says Hotels Streamlined for War Job In co-operation with the government's vital food conservation program, the hotels of Mason City have streamlined their menus, Joseph Gillam, Mason City public relations chairman of the American Hotel association, and proprietor of the Hotel Eadmar, declared "The so-called extras virtually lave been removed from the menu" explained Mr. Gillam, "in order to reduce the possibility of waste, in both food and manpower." \ The majority of hotels, for example, have sharply reduced the CHUCK HALL Wed.

'Use of rationed food has de- rcased considerably. Meat con- umption in a typical hotel has ropped . approximately 15 per ent in the past year. Use" of foods hat are plentiful and non-ra- ionedv has increased in keepin] with government policies;" Mr. Gillam cited bread and rolls as another example of streamlin- ng of menus. Before the war, he aid, many hotels offered 6-or 7 varieties. Today, the hotels generally are offering only 3. "Both guests and the general public now accept- the fact that lotel restaurants are rationed and must surrender points the same as the housewife," said Mr. Gillam. "Our chefs have done a grand job in preparing new and appetizing dishes from the foods that are plentiful and non-rationed."

Is Unexpectedly Boosted New York, (IP)--Motor'stocks, spurred by the unexpected boost in the General Motors dividend, led the market on a modest recovery move Tuesday without touching off any strong general demand. While most groups participated to a greater or lesser degree in the advance after a mixed start, bullish enthusiasm was chilled a bit by the sluggishness of dealings on the comeback. A special offering of 30,000 shares of Paramount pictures at 23%, which was completed in fairly good time, helped put the 5-hour total at around 600,000 shares, one of the smallest for the year to date. Hails and specialties did relatively well throughout and gains near the close ranged from fractions to better than a point. Produce (Merchant Quotations) (Cash Quotations by E. G.

The average weekly checi amounted to $11.43 which is tht highest monthly average ever attained. Payments made througr the Des Moines office topped instate with $6,829, Mason City cami 2nd with $3,842 in benefits ane* Ottumwa ranked 3rd with $2,267 Claims were filed by 1,969 un employed workers during thi month. This is the largest numbe of claims filed in any month sine February, 1913 when 2,129 claim were received but is less than hil the number filed in January las year. Claims filed In January 1942, totaled 16,887. Benefits were paid during 194' to 8,720 individual workers in th total sum of $513,545 as compare'JVjl with payments of $2,065,000 i;?Jf 1942. During the year ' *:··'»»' ia,uuv ij*- benefit?' reached the lowest point in his; tory. , V Approximately 575,000 lowj; workers earned wage credits du ing the year against the day wh they may become unemployed During the year also the cash rf serve fund increased rapidly aij now amounts to more than $40 000,000. · Many occupations contributed 1 the January claim total. Construe-',,, tion workers made idle by thei* completion o£ government build-';* ing, and the slowing down of re-| " and maintenance accounted] pair for many claims. 11 Other causes contributing to un-|. employment during the month were the slowing down of poultry/* and produce plants, the end of the! canning season and the curtail-1 ment of cement manufacture,^ while brick and tile companies, injr curtailing operations, providedtj their share of the claimants. A few salespeople filed claims as did for-^ mer workers in the seed corn pro cessing industry, while war indus-t tries, due to curtailment or lack] of materials, laid off a few wort " ers. Unusual as it may seem, few coal miners made idle by con-^ tinued mild weather have filedfl for benefits. 1.B6V4 Sutler, Iowa State Brand 49c Butter, Corn Country 48c Jutter, Brookfield . 1.30 July 1-2814 Sept 1.16V.
