Smith 4'nndldate for Democratic Nomination for Supervisor l rum the First DIst. in Cerro Gordo County SURVEY BEING MADE FOR STATE LIQUOR STORE HERE PROPERTIES FOR RENT TO STATE BEING SURVEYED S t a t e Wants a Dignified Location, Says Field Man. A store on the rim of the busiest retail section of the city, with no detracting surroundings to damage the character and dignity of the establishment and on a street where no woman would hesitate to walk. That is the kind of a place the state of Iowa is seeking for its liquor store in Mason City, according to R. N. Cowin, Waterloo, field man for the liquor commission, who arrived in Mason City Wednesday to look over offers of a dozen or more locations made by Mason City residents. Mr. Cowin planned to spend the remainder of Wednesday and at least all of Thursday making a survey of the store locations offered in communications to the commission, as well as other establishments that may be proposed while he is here. Application blanks for this purpose will be on hand in the office of the city clerk, it was announced. Anyone wishing to get in touch with Mr. Olson will be able to reach him at the Hotel Hanford. Confer With Officers. Upon his arrival here shortly before noon from Decorah. Mr. Cowin had a conference with Mayor J. J. Burns, City Manager E. H. Crofoot, Chief of Police B. J. Patton, Lester Milligan, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, and others at the city hall. Properties offered included a store at 118 Delaware avenue southeast, by R. S. Duffield; one of the stores in the Delaware building by John Shipley; two Federal avenue stores on first floor of Hotel Hanford: two stores on First street southeast by George Penson, a store at 212 North Federal avenue by Isabelle H. Daly, another North Federal avenue location by Herbert Hirsch and two on South Federal avenue, one at 218 and the other at 226, by Mier Wolf. The commission specifications call for a store 40 by 100 feet and basement, which must be at least 300 feet from a school, church, Y. M. C. A., Y. w. C. A. and other buildings of that character, Mr. Cowin explained. To Be Dignified Place. "It is to be a dignified establishment in a dignified location," he said. "There ia to be no evidence of intoxication allowed." This is pretty much a dry state. There were 284,000 persons who voted against repeal. Bernard Manley, 2vlason City, one of the members of the commission, is taking no part in the determination of the location of the store in his home town, Mr. Cowin pointed out. The commission is not acting with any haste in the opening of the liquor stores, he said. Many mistakes committed by other states are thus hoped to be avoided. All 26 of tbe first stores are to be opened simultaneously. That will probably be in June. Mr. Cowin expressed the belief that Iowa would be able to sell liquor cheaper than any of the surrounding states as it will deal directly with the manufacturers. The commission, however, may determine by Saturday the location in Mason City, Mr. Cowin said. f Bill" Smith Candidate for County Supei^visor To Seek Democratic Nomination in First. William H. Smith Wednesday an- uounced his candidacy for the democratic nomination for supervisor from the first district of Cerro Gordo county. Mr. Smith, who was born on a farm in Wisconsin, received his high school education at Winona, Minn. Later he attended Michigan State, where he received a B. S. degree. He was employed as assistant county engineer of Cerro Gordo county from April 5, 1927, to June 1, 1933, when he resigned to open the Pastime Garden, 404 Madison avenue southeast, of which he is the proprietor. Mr. Smith served in the army during the World war. WILHAM H. SMITH. STRAWS Showing Which Way the Wind Blows By E. A. N. MUST HAVE THOUGHT ROUSSEAU WAS A GEKMAN. War psychology was responsible for a number of incidents in 1917-18 I that in times of calmer reflection ] seem absurd. The office of a local professional man was raided, one night by a group of super-patriots who suspected him of pro-German activities. He came back to work next morning to find his office in confusion with every drawer and nook in his desk ransacked and books and papers strewn over the floor. It took him three days to get things in order again. The only thing he missed was a co«y of Jean Jacques Rousseau's "Confessions." And, he's still looking for it. Major J. J. Burns has informed liis Norwegian friends that if they wish they may call him Johun J. Bjornson during the period while he is campaigning for the Knutson-Knml- son combination. REGULARS ARE D1STUJKI5EU Candidates for office seem to be in ample supply for both parties these days. The increasing number announcing their candidacies on the democratic ticket is somewhat disturbing to the regulars of the party. "Where were these people some years back when the democrats had to work to keep their party going?" was the way one leader expressed it. The regulars had a ticket practically completed and were planning to maintain a unified party in the county that would go into the fall campaign with a maximum of strength. Now the question to be deciphered is: Who is the regular and who is the fly-by-night candidate? "It is obvious there are candidates in the field who for many years professed to be standpatters in the republican party who are no%v crucifying themselves in the eyes of friends by being influenced by- a small group of nickelodeon listeners to make a campaign on a ticket they don't believe in," was the way one prominent democrat expressed it. Series of Meetings Planned to Explain Corn-Hog Program A series of meetings - throughout Cerro Gordo county has been arranged by County Agent Marion E. Olson and the township chairmen of the corn-hog program for the purpose of explaining and discussing the keeping of the compliance records in the program. The Owen township meeting was held Tuesday evening and the second meeting is scheduled for Rock Falls Wednesday evening. Others have been scheduled next week for Dougherty Monday night, Rockwell Tuesday night and Port- laud Wednesday night. The township chairman presides and the county agent is present at each of the gatherings. An old industry is being; revived. Along the roadsides, especially on Saturdays, you will see boys with old sacks gathering beer bottles. "A dog will often bark at an ordinary car," said Seth Wellman, 229 West State street, when he returned from 3. trip to Ashton, 111. "But when they see mine, they just stare and yesterday, one hid behind a tree." Ho drives an Austin. The nunie of John Dillinger was affixed to the petition of Frederick B. Shaffer, candidate for the republican nomination for county attorney, at the United Cigar store. T h a t clinches the argument Diil- inger was here. RE-EMPLOYMENT SHOWS INCREASE 2,645 Given Jobs in Iowa Service in Week, Local Office Learns. The national re-employment service in Iowa placed 1,192 persons in remunerative employment, with private industry and 1,453 additional in jobs on public works for a total of 2,645, during the week ending April 34, according to information re^ ceivcd by the Cerro Gordo county re-employment office. A constantly increasing number of people are being returned to normal occupations and the indications are that private business is making great gains toward a return to regular production and distribution. Public Works Starting. As an aid in this movement, it is pointed out that a huge volume of public works construction which was allotted to Iowa last year, but which could not he undertaken because of bad weather, is rapidly getting- tinder way, that plans and specifications have all been drawn for public works, that surveys for sites of public roads have been completed, and that new lettings arc being made rapidly. Greater co-operation it is stated is being received from the contractors on public works this year, because of greater familiarity with the rules and regulations respecting the recruiting of labor on such jobs. Fighting Way Back. While private industry is fighting its way back to normal output, all casual employers can greatly assist their unemployed fellow residents by calling upon the local county national re-employment office for skilled and experienced workers in all lines, to help with work around the home, on the farm, and in offices, stores, etc. Mr. Pfund's office also reports that during the month of March, the Iowa national re-employment service placed a total of 3,305 persons in private employment and 1,626 persons on public works, for a total of 4,931. Garden Applications Must Be Filed With Emergency Relief Calling attention to the fact that all recipients of relief must have a garden, Roy Martin, secretary of the emergency relief office, Wednesday stated that all applications for gardens must be made to the emergency relief office in the old postof- fice building.

Class and Elmer Dilts Proprietors of New Establishment. The Mason Cty Oil company, 320 South Federal avenue, was formally opened Wednesday by C. M. Glass and Elmer Dilts, joint proprietors. The new company has purchased the bulk tanks and station at this location from the Champlin Refining company. Products of that concern, however, will be featured at the station. Victor Glass and Al Overbcck are in charge of the stations. Howard Seeks Nomination for State Representative BLAMES WAR FOR WORLD DEBACLE Only a Spiritual Revival Will Bring Us Back, Lions Told by Doctor Spence. That history will repeat itself in the present national and world situation was a prediction made by the Rev. W. H. Spence in an address Wednesday noon before the Mason City Lions club. "Never," he said, "has the world emerged from an economic crisis such as the one through which we have gone without resorting to a spiritual revival. We shall not at this time." Mr. Spence recalled a troublous time in the history of Great Britain when Wordsworth, the poet, in 1802 appealed for the return of the spirit and influence of his predecessor, John Milton. Inevitable Aftermath. England, he pointed out, and all of Europe, had gone through a long period of warfare and all that goes with war. The result was a bankruptcy of manners, virtue, freedom and power, as well as of pocketbook. "It isn't physically possible," he added, "for the world to pass through such a cataclysm as the World war without a tragic aftermath." Then he pointed to some of the elements of tragedy in the present situation. One had to do with "our children and the very real peril surrounding them." Reference was made to "one or two local dives" in which children arc permitted to degrade themselves, "in spite of law and in spite of officials." "The problem," he declared, "is one which demands the fullest cooperation of parents and citizens." Scores New Liquor System. The pastor predicted tragic failure for the "new deal" in liquor control and observed that "prohibition was doomed to failure the minute its administration was taken over by Andy Mellon." "It was betrayed by the very persons who were supposed to be its friends." he asserted. Mr. Spence served notice that in the event of a future war he would not be a party to the spreading of false propaganda "as I was in outlast war." French munition makers were accused of having supplied the implements of war for the destruction of not only French troops but American boys as well." For a Movie Cleanup. The pastor drew on the Old Testament for exemplars of the fundamental shortcomings in contemporary civilization--greed, selfishness, salaciousness and the like. Organization of right-thinking citizens to "clean up the movies" was suggested. Prior to Mr. Spence'!! talk, Roy Bailey reported on the local club's pilgrimage to Strawberry Point Monday night to supply a program. J. J. Daniels made an announcement of plans for the inter-service club volleyball tournament scheduled for noon of Monday, April 30, and Ernie Engler brought the citywide ping-pong tournament down to date. T. J. Bracken, insurance man, was elected into membership in the club. Announces Candidacy in Opposition to Earl Dean. Harry R. Howard, 20S Fifteenth street northwest, Wednesday announced bis candidacy for the democratic nomination as state representative from Cerro Gordo county. Mr. Howard is the first candidate to appear in opposition to Earl Dean, who is sucking the nomination for re-election. Tile new candidate is an engineer on the Milwaukee railroad and has lived in Mason City several years. Before coming to Mason city he was a resident of Austin. Minn., where he served one term as a member of the Minnesota legislature. He also served on the city council at Austin. Mr. Howard is married and has three sons. He is a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and of the Masonic order. HARR.V K. HOWARD. Citizens Thrown Into Mild Panic by Cowboy Showman Lassoes Hog in" Front of Bank; Crowd Two Local Chevrolet Salesmen Qualify in Firm's 100-Car Club Jack Fitzgerald and R. R. Widger, salesmen for the S. R. Chevrolet company of Mason City, were announced as having qualified for membership in the Chevrolet 100- Car club by auto sales performance in 1933, according to William B. Holler, general sales manager of the Chevrolet Motor company in a bul- petin issued from Detroit, Mich., over the week-end. This is the third consecutive year the local men have won membership. Checks totalling S73.650 were sent out to the 982 members of the club Saturday. Each of the Mason City men received checks for $75, a parchment scroll recording the award, and an additional diamond for the Chevrolet's gold 100-Car club pin issued to each member. Only 22 men qualified for the club in the state of Iowa. Ben R. Mark Chosen Manager of Allen Shoe Store in New Orleans Word has been received that Ben R. Mark, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Mark, 123 south Jackson avenue southwest, has been appointed manager of the Allen Shoe store, New- Orleans, La. Located in the heart of the business district, the Allen Shoe store is one of the south's largest and most modern shoe stores.

"Oh, oh, what's this, another bank robbery?" The thought flashed through the minds of more than one pedestrian and a'uto driver as a traffic tie-up occurred at 11:30 o'clock Wednesday morning at the intersection of State street and Federal avenue, with n cowboy as the center of attraction. Not since the bank robbery was the air as electrified with excitement. Some pedestrians ran to the tie-up; others ran from it, and some stood still, as though chilled by the mere thought of another such occurrence as the one of March 13 at that intersection. Who Is He? "Who is he, one of the Barrows?" asked one man running up. "I don't know. He's got a gun and a belt full of bullets." said another. But police were directing traffic, the cowboy was giving directions to pedestrians, and it appeared as though the center of interest was really in the street below the level of the eye. Then came a long squeal. It was from the second of two husky porkers which had escaped from the truck of John Dolan, Dougherty, while enroute to the Jacob E. Decker packing plant. The hogs had squeezed out of the gate at the rear of the truck n.s Mr. Dolan drove up the hill on South Federal avenue. Chief Cherokee Bill and his companion, from the arid spaces of Oklahoma, who are making a personal appearance at the Iowa theater this week in a trick roping, shooting and wild west act, were sitting in Birds of a Feather . . .

"Here's My Steal.'' On came the porker, running wild. "Here's my meat," yelled the cowboy and jumped out of the car and the impromptu rodeo was on. One of the porkers was lassoed a short distance from the theater but the other, a large boar, gave chase to an excited throng of youngsters and "went to town." Up Federal avenue Cherokee Bill chased his "meat" and finally headed off the animal in front of the First National bank. Farmer Dolan, with the aid of half a doxcn or more men, loaded the highly indignant porkers aboard his truck, gave the men a $5 bill to split among themselves, climbed aboard the truck and chugged on to the packing plant. Cherokee Bill and his companion went back to the theater and put away the monkey. POSTOFFICE WILL 60 BACK TO ITS FULL SCHEDULE Patrons, However, Have Not Been Suffering During Curtailment. Pursuant to the recent order, effective May 1, from the postmaster general directing the discontinuance of furloughs of postal employes ami authorizing the curtailment of daily mail deliveries to business houst*-' from three to two and to residdeiicCK from two to one. Mason City mail carriers, clerks and distributors will perform their duties on the i n - reased schedule after that date However, instead of increasing their burden on May 1. the rescinding of the enforced furlough order will lighten it, for the regular em- ployes will bo able to work f u l l time rather than having to take one day off without pay every month, and postofficc administration officials will again be able to hire substitutes on particularly heavy days. (lot Good Service. This resumption of regular schedules, while receiving favorable comment from carriers, will be hardly noticeable by Mason Cityans, for since March 2, when the enforced furloughs were ordered, local busi- nes houses have received their three* mail distributions ' daily and residents, except those in outlying sections, have received their usual twu deliveries. Mason City mail service has been kept virtually uniform throughout: the furlough period by 'hard work and complete co-operation among all departments and between the post- office and users of the mails. Reduced Expenses. The furlough order, made at the direction of Postmaster General James A. Farley to reduce department expenses, acomplished its purpose in Mason City at a minimum o" inconvenience to local patrons. Increased postal receipts in all sections of the country during February and March led to the rcvoca- . tion of the economy measure two months before it was originally intended to end.
