Patton of the police department. Both J. T. Laird and W. J. Pa- genhart were absent from the council table and only the appearance of David Olson after several months in the west made a quorum possible. At intervals during the meeting Mr. Olson discussed the glories of California. Appointed on Board. B. A. Webster, W. J. Holahan and Allan F. Beck were appointed as members of the board of equalization, the only change being the selection of Mr. Webster to take the place of W. S. Wilcox, who, in a letter to the council asked to be relieved of the responsibilities of serving. On the suggestion of Mr. Knudson the council went on record expressing appreciation for the excellent service given by Mr. Wilcox on the board. C. A. Parker was appointed to the library board to succeed Mrs. G. S. C. Andrick. The council passed a resolution draivn up by City Solicitor Lester Dibble, guaranteeing a maximum of 52,000 for skilled and supervisory labor in connection with the erection of the proposed hangar on the airport, funds for which were allocated to Mason City under the CWA program. Funds Expccttd. Mr. Webster, chairman of the airport operating board, made up of representatives of the Chamber of Commerce and the Legion, who appeared before the council, explained the civil works administration shortly before it went out of existence had approved the project for the construction of a hangar, 116 by 100 feet, with the provision that the government supply all the materials and the funds for the common labor. The cost of materials is estimated at $8,500 and the common labor, ?3,400. The possibility exists that there will be sufficient skilled labor available through the government agency, Mr. Webster brought out. Because of the possibility that some uncertainty existed as to the skilled labor the government agency requires a camplete guarantee that the project will be carried on nevertheless. Lowered to $2,000. Mr. Webster's request was for a guarantee of $2,500 from the city in event the funds should be needed for tlis skilled labor phase of the construction. The council felt, however, that the amount should be reduced to $2,000. Mayor John J. Burns, who presided at the meetng, wanted to be assured, however, that local labor will ba used on the project and it was because of the fact that the airport development would bring a large amount of work for Mason City labor. Mr. Webster explained one project involving grading, seeding, placing of crushed rock in the circle on approaches to the hangars and to the airport from the highway was already under way. This project also includes the erection of daylight markers. One of Five. Of 19 cities in the state that sought funds for the erection of hangars, Mason City was one of five that were granted by the CWA administration, Mr. Webster explained. It was pointed out that the resolution was mad« conditional on the actual appropriation of funds for the project. Roger Glanville, representing lanville brothers, appeared before the council, asking that a minimum be set on the price of cigarets for the reason that some dealers were resorting to selling them below cost.

Addressing the Church of Christ at the Sunday morning service, Dean Jesse C. Caldwell of the college of the Bible o£ Drake university, said, "Many of the problems that the churches have been facing in the past few years arc due to the inadequate and improper training of the ministers that serve the churches. "While there are more ministers than there are churches, there is a shortage of ministers that have the proper background and training to successfully lead the churches. Some schools make their product loyal to gospel principles without giving adequate training. Other schools give adequate training without inculcating loyalty for the Christian message. The school that meets the need of the churches must somehow do both. "The trouble between fundamentalism and modernism is largely a clash between dogmatic ignorance on one hand and educated disloyalty on the other. Only properly and adequately trained ministers of the future will be able to meet this crisis of the Christian churches." Gives "Reality" Sermon. At the First Congregational church, Dr. W. L. Dibble continued his series of "Reality" sermons which began with the new year. "The Reality of the Bible" was his topic and Dr. Dibble took the position that the lack of knowledge concerning the authorship of a substantial part of the "world's best seller" in no sense detracts from its worth or inspired character. Those who stand back and scoff at the Bible were classified by Doctor Dibble alongside those who list our mothers as "uneducated" or "uncultured." Destructive criticism, he said, is about the easiest and least commendable of man's activities. Dr. Philip Ervin Gregory of the First Congregational church of Minneapolis will occupy the local Congregational church pulpit next Sunday forenoon, Dr. Dibble announced. "Feels Security." "As an infant who feels the security of its mother's arms, as a lost sheep who feels the assurance of the shepherd's call, as like is attracted to like; man to man, friend to friend, child to parent--a true child knows his heavenly father"-stated the Rev. Walter H. Kampen of Central Lutheran church to his audience Sunday. "And as we abide with Him the confidence deepens and' enriches itself unto the never failing springs of Perfect Love and Peace. As we feed the child he comes the man, strong, stately, tall and as we'nur- ture our faith daily, tiny as it may be at the outset, it shall come to be our very life, our very step, our all in all! By being with Him who is Perfect Truth, we shall distinguish Him who is the Deceiver and His subtly and cunning shall have no allurement for us. And we must remain faithful--watching and praying; spending each day with Him, Our Good Shepherd--seeing things more clearly, undertaking more certainly, and knowing more and more surely that as we live with Him, the darkened glass shall be removed and we shall see face to face Him who is Perfect Love, Our Lord and Our God!" Observe Education. Christian education Sunday was observed at Trinity and Calvary churches. The pastor spoke from the text, John 10:1-10, and quoted a. statement by Judge Lewis L. Fawcett of the New York state supreme court in a letter to the New York Bible society. "Permit me to state that my experience during 23 years on the bench in which time 4,000 boys under 21 years of age were convicted of crime before me, of whom but three were members of a Sabbath school. If all the children could be kept under the influence of the Sabbath school and the grown-ups were active in some ADAMS DRUG CO.

REPLACEMENT OF LAND TAX URGED Colflesh Scores Failure to Place Limitation on Sales Tax. OSKALOOSA. April 16. OB-Robert W. Colflesh of Des Moines in a speech here today urged that new revenues raised in Iowa be applied to the replacement of taxes on real property, and criticized the failure to place a property tax limitation in the new sales tax. Colflesh. a Candidate for the republican nomination for governor, declared that it is imperative in Iowa that there be a reduction in the property tax. "The recent legislative session," he said, "under a democratic administration, added an additional tax burden upon the people of Iowa in the form of a sales tax, and provided no assurance that this new tax would be a replacement of the property tax. "The only apparent purpose in adding this new tax burden upon the people of Iowa was to secure new revenues for the democrats to spend." Colflesh pledged himself, if elected governor, "to fix a definite limitation on the amount of taxes raised from real property, and to make sure that taxes raised from other sources shall replace our present property tax."
