10 A LINE OTIPE ByT. PIPE Stick to the Pipe--Let the Smoke Blow Where it Will MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15, J939 OH WHERE OH WHERE Oh where, oh where, is that first robin at. Oh where can it be today? It's sunning itself in the sunny south, 'Stead of freezing in loway. Is there nothing that can be done, no action be taken, no movement started toward relieving the ice bound people of northern loway from the curse laid upon them by the "$%-'{) 3 /i-M"l?;cO exasperated so and so and so groundhog? For veil nigh six weeks now he has held us bound in his frigid grasp with but a day's respite now and then. And as for the first robin, he would have to c o m e fully equipped with woolen pants and ear muffs to long survive the rigors of our early spring weather. OR TO EVEN SHORTLY SURVIVE. Our personal nomination for the best travel guide we have ever seen. The State Farm Insurance company. And our thanks to Ray Van Note, good looking and easy to like Chicago; and North Western Ry. ticket agent, for presenting us a copy of the giude. . Our friend Jimmy Holub, popular manager of the local Western Union office had a rather hectic experience last Saturday night. Along about 9 o'clock p. m., the telegraph wires in our office began to act up and finally ceased to function.- Business of putting in frantic calls for Kubbard, justly famous North Western railway lineman. Business · of "Hub" arriving at office dressed in his store clothes. Business of locating trouble at the W. U. office .from whence comes the juice for our wires. Business of locating Mr. Holub and getting him to the W. XT. fountain of juice. Extended conferences- between Hub and Jim. Comes James; to the office and takes Hub to th'e'-W. U. Comes 3 o'clock in the morning and Jim and Hub atop a pole near the Milwaukee depot, Jim's brand new Phord V 8 left standing adjacent with lights alit and key in bey hole. Presently Jim looks down and observes car extremely disappeared. Business of rushing to nearest phone and making frantic call to police. Business o£ police asking for description of car. "Aha," quote police department, "we have already recovered the :. car for you so cease your worry. We found it down near the Milwaukee depot, lights lit, key Tn car, and no one around. Come and get it." "Come and get it like so much," replied James, "bring that darn car back down here where you found .it." Which the police did. As for the cause of the wire trouble, nothing much only a 100 wire cable soaked through with water and requiring about three or four days work for a gang of men to repair. A ^^ --. ^ -A MAN ON HIS DAY OFF Arose early at 11 a. m. as is' my wont and descend stairway in search of sustenence which am informed will be available at noon as usual whereupon return to the upper floor of residence and remove surplus hirsute adornment with razor of more or less cutting ability. Did then once more descend stairs and read Chicago ne\yspaper until noon day meal eating time was announced of which did partake with great gusto and considerable appetite. Informed by good wife that new Buix automobile had met with accident previous afternoon having been backed into by a plebian truck about 4 o'clock while parked on west side of Congregational church which news distressed me very much.

Slip on ice and nearly fall down. Good looking woman sees the gymnastics and laughs. Hoped she would slip on ice but she didn't. Into Carl Livergoods and get watch inspected. 27 seconds slow.

Promised to investigate and advise. Tried to sell me more insurance. Came away from there. Into Mason City Loan and Investment to pay box rent long past due. Afraid good! looking office gal would bawl me out but she smiled instead. Drop in on Arnold at his justly famous auto repair shop. Too busy to talk to me. Drop in on old friend Unkle John Lepper.

M. Just discovered one of hyacinths has stuck its head up through a snow drift. Hurraw! Spring has came. -- i ai me nome It is to be hoped that Earl and March 11. red do not take themselves too Plans wen PEPPY PALS 4-H GROUP GATHERS Meeting Conducted by St. Ansgai- 4-H Club in Wirth Home ST. ANSGAR--A variety of well chosen color schemes for their rooms was given by members of the Peppy Pals 4-H club of St Ansgar township as they responded to roll call when they met I at the home of Marjorie Wirth Fred seriously in their justly famous controversy regarding editorial influence. Editorials were invented for use as a safety valve for editors overwrought feeling. We doubt if they are read as much as editors hope they will be. We also doubt if any editorial ever written influenced a voter to change his political opinion. If a reader agrees with the sentiment expressed in an editorial he thinks its great and tells others about it. If not, he thinks its the bunk and tells everybody about it. ·However, we do hope Earl does not permit democratic editorials to appear in his paper. Why use good space for so few readers.

During 1933-38, the United States regained nearly one-half of the Latin America export trade it lost between 1929 and 1932. Girl Is Shot in Love Spat County Attorney Sam Goodwin at Paul Valley, Okla., said that Carole Morrison, 18 year old high school student, rode with her boy friend for an hour and a half after she was shot three times in a quarrel over a date with another boy.
