William Galbrelh. Mrs. Inez Kinney, one of Mason City's leading voyageurs and certainly one who believes in see- ins America first, has been receiving her mail recently at Merida, Yucatan, in the Hepublic; of Mexico. In a letter, reprinted below, dated Feb. 23 in the southern Mexican city, Mrs. Kinney tells of the quiet beauty oC both the city and its living atmosphere. At the time she wrote the letter, Mrs. Kinney had just visited the ancient ruins ol Chichen Itza and Uxmal, remnants of an almost forgotten civilization of the tropics, but reserved description of these until a later letter. Dear Friends: 11 there is skill that can condense a mass of material into an interesting, intelligent, brief summary, the admission is made right here that such happy faculty is lacking in this scribe. Wonders of Ruins: To give a worthy description ot Merida and vicinity alone, ·would require much more than a brief letter, but to continue to Chichen Itza' and Uxmal with their many wonders, the atmosphere of silent detachment, o£ mystery, of disturbing evasions and hazy legends, would and does appear daunting. Before launching into the tu- multous waters of mass material, it should be urged that not even the choppy waters of the Gul£ of Mexico should deter the seeker of thrills from exploring this magic land. Mareado is not pleasant but there are no permanent effects-unless a menial one is conceded. The city of Merida. dating back to the,year 1542 and founded by Don Francisco de Montcjo, is clean and well behaved. One doubts that the air of kindliness, of confidence and security is merely imaginary. Here, as in other sections o£ the Latin American lands, is found the ancient and the modern--cheek by jowl. The good highways and the .iungle path; the automobile and the coche colesa; the burro and the airplane, etc. Here the sisal industry predominates, the haciendas and villages appear prosperous and the people content, for the most. Attends Two Fiestas. Two fiestas in nearby villages were attended and found most interesting. Native dances were performed--among them the famous hat dance--to the "swing" oC native orchestras, and at one fiesta a bull fight was staged. This spectacle would require pages foi adequate description. "Native" in this section means "mestizo, 1 for there are few "puros" remaining. The costumes are quite uniform and very attractive. The women wear the long, loose white gown with Ihe colorfully embroidered band about the square-cut neck, the short sleeve and around the bottom ot the one-piece gown. Usually, another garment is worn underneath, and comes below the upper. This is finished with white embroidery. The attractive costumes appear perpetually clean. Older women wear the hair in a roll or two done high enough to containers Some o£ INEZ KINNEIT LOCAL KNIGHTS HEAR J, GOCKEL Representative of National Council Talks on New Crusade. Joseph M. Goshcl, Paducah, Ky., past state deputy o£ the Knights of Columbus in Kentucky and field representative for the national council, addressed local members of the order on the new Knights crusade at a meeting held at the Moose hall. The Knighls Crusade, Mr. Gockel pointed out, was being directed againsl communism, irre- ligion, family destruction and their Since Jan. 5, Mr. Gockel staled, he has traveled' 7,500 miles in the middle western states and Canada, conducting 43 meetings on the movement.

Dr. Don Fitzgerald, grand knight, presided. DRIVE CONTINUES AMONG BUSINESS AND CIVIC BODIES Comprehensive Plan for Adding to Safety on Roads Proposed. While the campaign for membership in the Cerro Gordo county safety council was continuing Wednesday on many fronts, with representatives oL the organization reaching civic groups and business institutions, Fred \V. Vorhics, chairman of the committee in charge, called attention to the legislative program of the Iowa State Safety council. This program, drawn up by the state council's advisory committee, he said, is one that sould get the support of every person interested in making highways safer for motorists. "The privilege of backing such a program should be enough to make everyone want to join the safely council," he said. Following are the legislative recommendations of the slate council: Program Presented. 1. Increase the Iowa highway safely patrol to not less than 150 men, 50 to be selected and placed in training at once and 50 to be trained, ready to take the road June 1, 1938. · 2.

Increase driver's license fci to 51 for two years to pay add! tioual patrol. 4. Require dimming oE head lights when approaching anolho vehicle. 5.

Here the children appear well nourished and (quietly) happy. It is true that some of the younger generation of the town and villages wear the modern dress. All the girls at the fiestas wore th modern, party-style shoe. Men wore shoes or sandals. The ancient cathedral (in tha walls of which are seen blocks taken from the prehistoric temple,) the House ot Montejo, the museum, the beautiful quintas (homes having spacious grounds and gardens,) the native market, the slate government's buildings, the penitentiary, the plazos, the cemetery and cenote, the great haciendas 01 sisal plantations are the principal points of sight-seeing interest. Describes Market. The native market is nothing short of wonderful but would require too much space for an adequate description. Oranges--sweet and sour, bananas or platinos papayas, guavas, caimilos, grana- dia, guanabana, mamoy ?.apoto (amarinda and many others arc seen in the markets. The greei cocoanut should be mentioned-the milk of which is delicious anc healthful. The 80 mile highway to Chichen Itza is good and cuts througl jungle between villages. As the road penetrates farther into the jungle the villages become more primitive--the cots now havin the pole, clay-chinked rounding walls, as well as the palm- thatched roofs. Very little furniture is in evidence. Hammocks the chest where the clothing kept, the meager washing am cooking utensils, usually outside and always the ninos and llv chickens-not forgetting the dog. In the interior, the milpas (cornfields) the few vegetables-chiefly the frijoles--take the attention of the family.

F. Starr, president of the Cerro Gordo county safety council. As. a climax the entire membership arose and with upraised 'lands pledged itself to the obligations and duties which attach to membership in the local organiza- "on. "Da you pledge yourself to do lhc.se things?" Dr. Starr asked after he had completed a reading of the 12 safety promises embraced by safety council membership. "I do," came a lusty response from the 50 Lions present at Ihe meeting. Speaking witli Dr. Starr on the program were C. L.

SI'ERRY they are themselves incapable of reduction into anything simpler. Words of this kind are the beginning of thought and speech. Though you cannot define them, you can describe them. The late Professor Burkitt of Cambridge University--one of the most devout and learned scholars of our time--once said that he thought the meaning of Agape is belter expressed by II Cor. 9:15 than by any other single passage in the New Testament. Love is, in the firsl instance, gratitude to God for His very being. The idea, though novel in this connection, is not unintelligible. How often has cur love for someone else been expressed as "1 am glad that you are there."

But what's a few degrees of temperature among friends? January Was Cold. January's average temperatures had been 8.93 degrees;, one of the coldest of record. February of 183G rang up a mean temperature of 1.8 degrees above zero.

Hariy Brown of the city council, vho has been working with Mr. Voi'iicis in the drive, spoke interestingly ot a number of aspects ·f the cause. He recalled a number ot instances which reflect the growing awareness of this community in the safety problem and predicted that the goal ot 1,500 Tiembers would be reached in Cerro Gordo county. Dr. Starrs closing remarks had o do with the enormity of the na- ion's accident problem.
