Hill, manager of the organization's field office at Albert Lea, which serves southern Minnesota and North Iowa. After more than two years of experience with the set-up in which time more than 43,000,000 have made application for social security accounts and which has paid out more than $11,000,000 in old-age insurance benefits, Mr. Hill observed that the federal old- age insurance program is a reality and is working. Old Age Benefits "Of major importance," said Mr. Hill, "are the recommendations regarding the monthly old-age benefits which, under the present act, wiE begin in 1942. The social security board recommends that these monthly benefits begin in 1940 instead of 1942, thereby stepping up the date two years. Another proposal is that the monthly benefits, in the early years, be increased. With respect to this proposed increase in benefits, the board 'makes two suggestions which would have this effect: "First, that supplementary benefits be paid to aged dependent wives of retired workers. Under the present law, monthly benefits will be paid to commercial and industrial worker's who have reached age C5 and who have stopped work. No provisions is made for benefits to wives of these retired workers. "Secondly, that benefits be calculated on the basis of average wages rather than on the basis of total accumulated wages, as is provided at present. This proposal would increase the amount of benefits paid to workers during the early years. Widows anfl Orphans "The board also recommends that provisions for survivor's insurance for widows and orphans be put into the old-age insurance law. Specifically, the board suggests benefits to aged widows and Popular Princess Style Globe-Gazette Peerless 15 Cent Pattern 119 West Nineteenth Street, New York City By Diana Day Roundtable Discussions to Hold Spotlight for Teachers Prominent Speakers Scheduled to Talk at Group Meetings Style No. 3184 is designed for sizes 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 years, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38 and 40 inches bust.

E. workers and to young widows of workers with dependent children; and thai monthly benefits covering a period immediately following the husband's death should be paid to all other widows. In addition, it recommends that all widows of persons who had already qualified for old-age insurance, lad they lived to age 65, should entitled to a deferred monthly Benefit beginning when they attain age 65. "Another important recommendation has to do with permitting workers to accumulate wage credits toward old-age insurance after they have reached age 65. Under the present law, this is not allowed. Naturally many men and en now in their early sixties, will never be able to qualify for monthly old-age benefits because they will not be able to work in five different calendar years before reaching age 65. If they were permitted to go on accumulating wage credit's after reaching that age, it \yould enable them to q,ual- ify for monthly benefits. Extension of Coverage In considering how the coverage of this law can be extended, the board suggests that the old-age insurance law should cover workers in domestic service in private homes. The board also recommends that employes who work for non-profit organizations should be included in old-age insurance. Non-profit organizations usually refer to such as private social welfare agencies, churches, and similar non-profit making organizations. "A n o I h e r recommendation which, if adopted, would affect many workers is that the em- p l o y e r-e m p I o y c relationship should be so defined as to cover persons employed as insurance, | real estate, and traveling salesmen, and in similar occupations. Include Federal Workers "The board also suggests that employes of national banks and other instrumentalities of the federal government should be included. 'Tarm laborers including em- ployes engaged in the raising, feeding or management of livestock, bees, and poultry are not covered by old-age insurance. The board now recommends the inclusion of workers engaged in large-scale farm operations, often ot a semi-industrial character, and that eventually all farm labor should be covered by the law. "With a view to simplifying tax and reporting procedures, the board has recommended that the unemployed compensation tax provisions and the old-age insurance tax provisions as they relate to employers either should be combined, thus eliminating a separate tax return for unemployment compensation, or that the definitions in these provisions be identical, thus avoiding confusion and facilitating record keeping and reporting by employers. "These suggestions are the main recommendations for changes which the board has made to congress. Whether they will be adopted is a matter for congressional action; but we can be assured that workable plans are being considered, not only through improvement in the administration of the present law, but by liberalizing its benefits and broadening its protection." * 'Preparation High School the Grades Mathematics" Harold J. Booth ot Spencer. for by TWO DIVORCE ACTIONS FILED Cruel and Inhuman Treatment Alleged in Petitions Two divorce suits were on file in district court here Wednesday, one by Mary Escherich being the second she has filed against Elbert Escherich, according to the petition. Mrs. Escherich brought the suit on grounds of cruel and inhuman treatment which her petition alleges consisted of "physical violence." The couple was married Aug. 28, 1935, and separated June 12, 1937, the petition recites at which time she filed her first suit for divorce. In November, 1837, they were reconciled and lived together until Jan. 5, 1933. She asks 550 attorney fees, $50 temporary alimony and $50 a month permanent alimony as well as the right to resume her maiden name of Mary Coburn. The other suit was brought by Stanly Knutson against Catherine Dunn Knutson, Clarion, and also was based on grounds of cruel and inhuman treatment. the case, State vs. William J. Korbel, was handed down by Judee H. E. Taylor. A Floyd county case affirmed by the supreme court was decided by Judge Henry N. Graven. The case, A. W. Harroun vs. Joseph Schultz. involved granting of judgment and receivership. The decision of Judge H. E. Taylor was affirmed in an opinion, handed down by Justice Oliver in the case of LuRene Lamm, appellant, vs. Norske Selskab society officers in Winneshiel: county. The plea to quiet the title against the society was denied. 4 DISCHARGED AS ALIENS HERE These Were Among 262 Iowa WPA and NYA Workers Removed Four Cerro Gordo county residents were among the 262 Iowa WPA and NYA project workers who have been discharged as aliens, George J. Keller, Iowa WPA administrator, announced Wednesday. Four workers also were discharged in Hancock county, three each in Hardin and Winneshiek and two each in Butler, Emmet, Fayette, Franklin, Mitchell and Worth counties, he reported. "We were obliged to dismiss these people, many of whom have probably received their first citizenship papers, because of the recent order of congress that no alien is eligible for employment," Keller declared. "Each person was required to submit an affidavit attesting to his or her citizenship. Those not able to sign such an affidavit had to be removed from the rolls." The dismissals involved workers in 50 counties and included 247 WPA workers, six NYA workers and eight employed on NYA student-aid projects. Polk county led the list with 66 dismissals, while Woodbury had 42 and Pottawattamie, 24, Keller said. CITY'S NEED FOR AIRPORT POINTED OUT BY HATHORN Speaks at Lions Club on Expanding Air Activities in L). S. Mason City's need for an airport which will make the community eligible for service in the expanded federal airmail lines now contemplated was set forth before the Lions club Wednesday noon by W. B. Hathorn, member of the Chamber of Commerce committee on aeronautics. To emphasize the disparity between the advance in airplane construction and the advance in this community's facilities for taking care of airplanes, he showed two pictures. One was of an airplane built by his uncle, Charles Hathorn, in Mason City 2R years ago. The other .was of a modern airliner. "My uncle's plane," he said, "was flown from a cow pasture across the road from the present county home. Notice its antique construction. Now n o t i c e the streamline effect of the modern airliner. Airport Hasn't Changed "Airplane construction, as you can see, has been revolutionized, but the airport facilities haven't been much altered. The field used here now isn't much different from the cow pasture used back in 1911."' Mr. Hathorn told of two meetings attended by him at St. Louis Miss Kathleen MeCann, kindergarten supervisor of the State Teachers college of Mankato, Minn., will address kindergarten instructors at their luncheon meeting in the Hotel Hanford on "Foundations Laid in the Kindergarten." Miss Cresence Sobolik of Manly is leader of the section. Mrs. Helen Lentz, graduate of Iowa State college and now instructor of art and English in the Decorah schools, will present a puppet show, entitled "Snow White," with the help of Decorah junior high school students. Miss Agnes B. Cole, assistant professor of art in Iowa Slate college, will talk on puppetry. The performance will be given in the high school auditorium. Name Dr. Geiger Dr. Beatrice Geiger, head of. the home economics department of Iowa State college, will speak at the home economics roundtable on "Meeting the Needs of the High School Girl." She will be followed by Miss Mary Fan-is, state supervisor of homemaking education of Des Moines. The leader of this roundtable is Miss Charlotte Stenberg, instructor o£ home economics at Garner. "Primary Literature"' is the subject of the address to be given by Miss Amy Arey of the department of education of Iowa State college before the teachers of primary grades. The leader of the roundtable is Miss Ruth Patke of Fort Dodge.

STOP AT THE TWINKLE FOR Cones Pop Cups Candy Sundaes Cigars 5c and lOc Malted Milks At Hospitals Mrs. Arnold Nieman, Northwood, was. admitted to the Park hospital Tuesday for a major op- al which communities throughout the middle west interested in obtaining a place on an airmail feeder line out of the twin cities considered^ the problem with federal authorities and with officials of airlines. Reference was made to the fact that Mason City had been selected by a representative of the aeronautics division of the federal department of commerce as one of the eight points in Iowa specially in need of an adequate airport. Need AH Weather Runways A principal requirement for an airport is an all-weather runway 3,500 feel in length. There is no heavy demand as to hangars or as to administration building, he said. A heated room in which passen- ; gers can be sheltered while wait- ' ing for a plane is the principal need, he explained. Mason Cily, he pointed out, is in about the same position with respect to aviation that it was a half century ago or so with respect to railroads. Failure to strike while the iron was hot carried definite penalties for many communities, it was observed. Mr. Hathorn's talk was preceded by a number of harmony selections by a quartet consisting of J. J. Fitzgerald, Charles Dalin, Lawrence Reardon and James Archie, with Ralph Geer at the piano. Guests of the club included R. . . . D. Robbins of Clear Lake and E. Tuesday. A. Hayes of Mt.

Van Engen, head of the mathematics department of Iowa State college, will address junior and high school instructors on mathematics on "Recent Trends in Mathematics" and Professor M. J. Wilcox will speak on "Remedial Heading in Junior High" before the junior high English roundtable. COURT REVERSES INJURY VERDICT Holds Florence Cinder Estate Not Entitled to $9,026 A jury verdict giving a Mason City woman 59,026.75 for injuries received in an automobile accident was reversed in a supreme court decision handed down by Justice Paul W. Hichards late Tuesday. Miss Florence Ginder, employed in a Mason City insurance office, was awarded' that amount in a trial held in the district court before Judge M. H. Kepler here in the fall of 1937. Miss Ginder, who died last spring while her case was pending before the supreme cour'-, was represented at the trial by Breese and Cornwell as her attorneys. Dr. George M. Crabb is the administrator ot her estate. She tesified that she suffered a broken hip, a broken arm and other injuries when the automobile in which she was riding with William Shanks at the wheel went into the ditch on one of the curves in the paving near Ventura. Claim Evidence Insufficient BIythe, Markley, Hule, Dibble and Cerney, attorneys for Shanks, appealed the case on the basis of insufficiency of the evidence. During the trial of the case defense attorneys moved for directed verdicts after the plaintiff's testimony and after the completion of all the evidence, but both motions were overruled by the judge. The plaintiff, who sued for $17,006.40, alleged recklessness on the part of the driver. Miss Ginder died May 17, 1938, and Dr. Crabb was named the ad- COSTUME JEWELRY $1.00 BLANCHARD'S 3 West State FREE! 9-PIECE OUTFIT GIVEN ABSOLUTELY FREE WITH ANY SUIT eration. Mrs. F. H.
