TWO LEGISLATORS CONFER WITH CITY COUNCIL AMENDING BEER BILL IS FAVORED FOR ASSEMBLY Chamber Committee Also Listens to Dean and McEnaney. ' . Senator Ear] Dean and Representative Morgan J. McEnaney, home from their legislative duties at Des ·'Moines over a week-end recess, held conferences with various local groups Friday afternoon and Saturday. Mr. Dean and Mr. McEnaney met with the members of the city council at the city hall Saturday morning to discuss legislation affecting cities and towns. The meeting was attended by all members of the council, headed by Mayor W. S. Wilcox, City Manager Herbert T. Barclay and City Solicitor H. J. Bryant. Beer Proposals Considered. Particular interest was manifested by council members in the proposed beer bills. Mr. McEnaney, member o£ the liquor committee o£ the house, stated that at a meeting of that group Thursday it was. decided that the wise course to pursue was to amenc the present bill instead of attempting to rewrite the measure. "Hard liquor and local option are bein.g discussed extensively a* Des Moines," he said. "Representatives from the river cities are attempting to get a measure · through providing liquor by the drink. On the other hand there is a move on for local option." Legislators Favor City. The city solicitor pointed ou the council was opposed to any move to take the control of the beer situation in the city away from the city heads and vesting! with a central body at Des Moines Both Mr. McEnaney and Mr Dean expressed themselves as favorable to this position. The legislators were informed that separation of dance halls from beer parlors, as has been done by ordinance in Mason City, was a desirable regulation. Problem in Rural Areas. Mayor Wilcox pointed out that one i.f the difficulties was the fact that there was less regulation in the rural areas. Conflicting authority in that township trustees issue dance permits and county supervisors the beer permits in the ·ural areas was one of the prob- ems encountered, it was stated. The city" officials also pointed out they were interested in getting funds allocated by. the : .hjgh- vay commission to cities for the naintenance of streets. Senator Dean stated such a movement was 3n foot, but said he doubted vhether a measure would be assed in this session. Under Civil Service. The council also went over a bill ntroduced by Representative. Mc- ~lnaney, placing lire chiefs in city manager cities .under the same civil service benefits as firemen. There was also some discussion )f new motor vehicle regulations. The question of compulsory insurance for drivers appeared to be one of the troublesome points of this legislation. The councilmen expressed themselves as .immensely pleased with the open house held Friday at municipal buildings. Several matters pending before the state legislature were presented to the legislative committee of the Chamber of Commerce Friday noon by Senator Dean and Representative McEnaney. Both of the officers sketched the activities of their branches of the assembly and then participated in discus- ion. The proposed hard liquor by the drink, through local option, was considered. Corrective amendments for the beer bill were generally believed sufficient in the .vay of liquor changes. The proposed motor vehicle law, which would set a maximum speed of 55 niles an hour on driving was looked on. with some' disfavor because it was felt that with such a maximum it would be difficult to convicf a driver of recklessness ivhen driving under that rate. Consideration was given to the sales tax but the' opposition that las been felt in some sections of he state, particularly along bor- lers was not in evidence. Use of okens or stamps was not believS3 desired. Homestead exemption and other natters were also brought before the group.

A former North lowan has acquired fame for bucking big snowdrifts on the Milwaukee railroad in South Dakota. He is Jack Beaver, who was reared in Manly and was a son of the late Mrs. Anna Howe, a brother of Mrs. Frank Foster of Manly and Mrs. C. Dotty of Mason City. "A blizzard of great severity whipped snow over the country," said the Eagle Butte, S. Dak., News recently, "and drifted cuts full to overflowing. All train service was held at Mowbridge, S. Dak., until a rotary arrived with three locomotives to push it through the drifts. In Ridgeview locality it encountered a long cut, filled and rounded up. After hitting these hard drifts, the rotary stopped and by the time the locomotives could pull it out, their water supply was gone and three dead engines and disabled rotary gave SOS calls. "A locomotive was sent for at Mowbridge to pull them back to the roundhouse but the rotary refused to function and the breaking of the blockade was passed to Engineer Jack Beaver who, with a pilot plow, flat car of ballast, a locomotive to push the plow and one to pull him out of drifts where he was buried, after the plow and engine hit solid banks, cleaved the cuts and regular train service was established. "Engineer Beaver is supreme snow bucker of the Milwaukee railroad system but has no passengers on his engine when taking the drifts. Not that he doesn't like company, but other trainmen arc shy about taking (hose fast rides and terrific bumps, as the plow hits at high speed. But Engineer Beaver bucks the'snow out of cuts and clears track where those of less courage fail to make the grade and the blockade remains until he heads out riding his 'iron horse' to hit the drifts'in high." FELLOWSHIP OFPRAYER Daily Lenten Devotional Prepared by Dr. Willard L. Spcrry for the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America. Third Week--"The Fatherhood of God" THE DIVINE DESIRE. Saturday, Feb. 27. "Nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt." Read Matthew 26:36-46. Matthew Arnold says that the greatest line in poetry is Dante's, "In thy will is our peace." The idea of the omnipotence of God carries with it two or three genuine difficulties. I f G o d is omnipotent then he is responsible for evil as well as for good. If he is omnipotent then our human freedom i s a f a r c e . W h y should we pray that his will be done, when it is done anyway? Part of our difficulty w i t h these riddles is eased if we realize that the word in the teaching of Jesus translated "will" carries with it the suggestion of desire as well as of coercive control. In our human world many of our choices are made, not on the abstract merits of the ease, but in response to the known desire of some one whom we love and trust. "I do it because you wish me to." For sensitive persons the desire of such an one is more powerful than any blunt command could be. Christ "desires with desire" that we eat his bread and drink his cup. But at his table no one is ever forcibly fed. It is not ciher- DR, SPERRY Rather the irony of fate isn't it that W. Earl Hall should receive his first notice of winning $500 for an editorial on safety in a Des Moines newspaper Saturday. Anyhow, the news of Mr. .Hall's good fortune should .provide a stimulus for the Cerro Gordo county safety council membership campaign, in which he is so much concerned. It has been discovered for the first time there is money in this safe'ty movement and Mr. Hall has decided to give up bank nights. Up to this time, by the way, he hasn't had as much as a postage stamp out of the weeks of time and the hundreds of miles of travel he has devoted to instituting a statewide safety program for American Legion and the Iowa State Safety council. Contrariwise, from the standpoint of receipts and disbursements, his safety account has been in the red up to this time. That most of us need the stimulus of a highway safety membership campaign is Illustrated by the fact that even the Rev, David L, Kralz, representative of the Ministerial'.association in the membership drive, not long agro was stopped by a Clear Lake policeman for an infraction of the traffic laws. The officer maintained he had railed to stop at an intersection. Mark up 100 per cent In resourcefulness for the H. E. Jorgenson family, 243 Twentieth street southeast! The other day.Dale, 7, adventurous as boys are at that age, pulled out a hot air register in the home. The family dog, a Springer spaniel, which, by the way had just got home after spending some time in a veterinarian hospital, fell into the opening. Mr. Jorgenson realized that something had to be done and one quickly or the dog would be burned to a crisp for it had fallen down almost to the furnace. So his daughter, slender Ruth Elaine, 14, was sent head first down into the suffocating opening. While he held on to her shoes, reaching as far down as he could, she grasped the dog and signaled for him to pull. Once her shoe started to come off and ..the, father almost lost hold. But he hung on and brought both girl and dog up safely. If the peat sold by John Colby of Hanlontown has the growing power attributed to it by him, grass will be growing on the gravel highway east of Hau- lontown, where one of the drivers lost two sacks of the product one day this week while bringing a load to Mason City. Fifty-six years ago this week Dr. E. McEwen was graduated from medical school and has been practicing his profession e v e r since. He was graduated from the Hahneman college of medicine on Feb. 24, 1881, and entered practice with his father at Rockford, 111. His father, who was a graduate of the college of medicine at Castleton, Vt., practiced his profession-for 52 years. ( TWO FINED HERE. Erric Espevold, Kensetl, and Milton C.

Flynn. ^The United States has much to learn from the lives of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, Dr. C. E. Flynn of the First Methodist church, declared in an address at a joint meeting of Clausen-Worden post and auxiliary a t ' the Y. M. C. A. Friday evening. "Their attitude was to live to give rather than to get; to serve rather than to be served," he said. "The one thing we have to remember is that today and tomorrow grow out of yesterday," .he added. "What we build today must be on a foundation laid yesterday. "George Washington, who headed the destinies of our country at the time it was founded, was a man of property. "Perhaps someday someone will be able to shape human relationships without affecting property. To do this it will be necessary to change human nature. Was Unselfish. "I recall in the closing days'of the Great war in driving across Missouri, where every farm was a tenant farm. They were all run down, for it isn't human nature to want to keep another man's property in condition.There isn't much question but what we will have to go on in this country taking into consideration ownership of property." Washington, he pointed out, was unselfish in his service to his country. "He did not want to head the continental army," Dr. Flynn declared. "He would much rather have stayed at Mount Vernon. Here was a man who was con-, cerned about how much he could give to his country. , "We used to think of.tlie government a n d ' t h e church as institutions to which to give. We now come to a time when everyone thinks they, are institutions Irom which to get something. "We never needed to have the problem of poverty and dependency develop in this country. We could still restore it a nation o£ homes and'families." Knows Lincoln Country. Having lived in Indiana,. Dr. FJynn pointed out that he was intimately acquainted with much of the Lincoln-country. "When' I think of , Lincoln 1 think of a great mystic," said the speaker. "He was probably the only man who could have guided this nation through the Civil war crisis. A man more normal would have worried himself to death. The fact that Lincoln had that peculiar faculty of seeing the humorous side of the situation in the .face of serious difficulties made him able to carry on." The country, he said, is again headed toward destruction if a change doesn't come. "This country is broken up' into I don't know how many groups each working for their own interests," he said. "There's dynamite, destruction and death in that attitude." Dr. T. E. Davidson, chairman of the entertainment committee of the post, was in charge of the program. R. C. Patrick, commander, presided.
