PRIORITIES MAY DELAY OPENING OF OLD LIBRARY Lions Discuss Further Plans for Establishing Youth Club in Building When Mason City's youth center in the old library on East State street opens is dependent largely upon how soon alterations and repairs authorized by the city council at its meeting this week can be completed, Richard E. Homey of the special youth committee told the Lions -club Wednesday noon. "Getting the necessary priorities," he saidi "is the principal problem. This may prove particularly difficult with respect to the gas installation. An OFA representative is expected here in a few days. After that the picture will be clearer than it is now." Under present plans the Lions club would take over, equip and assume responsibility for the operation of the youth center after the building has been placed in condition for use by the city. The club's main program was an observance of the 34th birthday of the Boy Scout program, with Henry D. DeWolf, scoutmaster of Troop 35, in charge. With him were Air Scout Gilbert Bovard, Seascout Melvin Smith, Cub Scout Stanley Judd and Scouts Sanford LoomiSj Jack Page, Kay Holtz, Keith McGuire, Jerry Herbener, Craig Tierney and Richard Under. ^Mr. DeWoIf outlined the scope of Scouting as it was exemplified in last year's Winaebago council program, which now is being participated in by the largest number of Scouts in history. Letters from army, navy and FBI leaders were presented to show how Scouting is proving helpful in the nation's war effort. A b r i e f playlet, written by Gilbert Bovard, was presented as a stimulant to the current war bond campaign. It took the form of an adaptation of the famed Dickens "Christmas Carol" story, with Jerry Herbener undergoing the Scrooge transformation. W. H. Rees presided in the absence of Leo Davey. Russell Girton introduced the program Guests included Jim Bunton of Des Moines, the Rev. Aubrey Edmonds of Our Savior's Lutheran church, Lt. David Shipley and Scout Executive, Earle K.
