NEXT TO FIKE STATION 23 First Street Southwest riione 494 WEATHER FACTOR Garfield Remodeling Progresses IN SUCCESS OF ANNUAL DISPLAY Dealers Expect Crowds to Surpass Those of Previous Year. Hundreds of interested spectators were streaming into the nine local showrooms where the second annual individual auto show opened Thursday morning. The show continues through Thursday. Friday and Saturday, offering the latest models of the most popular cars in the market, in the low-priced, medium priced and more expensive field. Newly decorated showrooms greeted spectators at many uf the establishments and others had their particular means of helping make this an even better show than the inaugural one of 1935. The dealers, contacted in a poll Thursday, expressed themselves as being immensely satisfied with the results of the auto show in its first day and with a sigh of relief noted the pleasant weather which was until Wednesday doubtful. With the mercury apparently on the upgrade, it is expected that the crowds in attendance at the 1936 exhibition will surpass that of the previous year. Gallaghers Change Plans. A change in plans was forced at the John Gallagher. Inc., garage. 25 Second street southeast, when the Pontiac cabriolet which was to be on display during the show failed to arrive la. time for the special showing. Mr. Gallagher pointed out Thursday that he is not the sole owner of the garage as was stated in a previous issue, but is'president of the company.

The first prize in this contest is a Pontiac deluxe sedan and goes to the person writing the best letter, of not more than 100 words in length, on "What I Liked Best on My 10 Minute Ride in the Pontiac," following such a ride in that car. "I expect large crowds to attend the display we have in our showrooms for the duration of the show. I believe this show is a great thing for the automotive industry in Mason City," commented Jay Folsom of the Folsom Auto company, 722 South Federal avenue. The Graham car is on display there. "Show One of the Best." "The show has been given impetus by the fine weather and I think that this is a good indication that the 1936 auto show will be one of the best ever to be held in Mason City," said Sam Richer, manager of the Lapiner Motor company. "Although this Is the first day of the three day exhibition, we have already welcomed a horde of visitors who have come in to see our late models of the Dodge and Plymouth," he stated. "With the better weather coming at so appropriately a time, we ex- Kemodeling of the Garficld school is under way.

Inc., 10 Fourth street northeast. "Atany persons were in to see our DeSoto and Plymouth models even last night. I believe an even larger attendance than that of last year will be seen at the 1936 auto exhibition. This show is unquestionably a great thing for the auto dealers of Mason City," he declared. Spring flowers added to the appearance of the auto show at the Birum-OIson company, 316 North Federal avenue, as the auto show opened. The showrooms were redecorated and F. J. Olson, dealer, announced Thursday that there was a pleasing response to the arrangements made particularly for the show. Mr. Olson is dealer for the Buick and Oldsmobile cars.
