The Globe-Gazette farm editor told how he engaged a cab driver at SI an hour to show him the homes of foreign ambassadors and other noted persons, the Ford theater where Lincoln was shot and other points of interest. With congress and the supreme court in session, he also observed the house, .senate and court in action. The white house visit interested Mr. Pickford tremendously. He asserted that the red room, green room and east room would mean more to him from now on Visits to the Smithsonian institute and the government printing office were recalled. "One of the remarkable things about the printing office," said Mr. Pickford, "is the number of women employed there--many of whom are gray haired. It's wonderful how nimble their fingers are as they count the sheets of bills and how quick their eyes are to detect any flaws in the printing." Trips to the library of congress and Mount Vernon, home of George Washington, were also made by the Mason Cityan. On Sunday he attended the church where Washington worshiped. --Photo by Russe WILLIAM BUCK Cerro Gordo's CCC Quota Set at 18 for April to June Quarter Cerro Gordo county's quota of C. C. C. enlistments for the April luarter has been set at 18, Mrs. Lola M. Brown, county overseer of the poor, announced Friday. The quota is more than double the figure of 8 set for the January quarter. Mrs. Brown will accept applications from relief homes or borderline cases with low incomes, she announced. No boys are taken \vith court records. The enlistment period is six months. Reason for the increase in the juofa, Mrs. Brown suggested, is Jiat boys whose enlistments expire in the spring do not re-enlist but go to work on the farms. This decreases the number in the camps so that a larger number can be enlisted. Parents often use the Russian idea. If only one thought or belief s right, why permit little fellows o entertain any other?--Lincoln Star. FELLOWSHIP OF PRAYER Dqily Lenten Devotional By DR. GAIUS G. ATKINS TRYING THE HEART Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts: Read Psalm 139-1-717-24. This Psalm repeats Job's irayer to be weighed, but with othar balances. Job's scales are in the day's deed; the psalmist asks to to be searched in thought and desire, in his dreams as well as his deeds. There is a searching which, like a doctor's examination, is necessary for the healing of our sicknesses. Back and beneath the day's deed, back and beneath the massive movements of any time are, after all, just our thoughts and hearts. But, lost in the external we seek almost every approach to the sad sickness of our time save their sources in our own souls. When we are ready to repeat the psalmist's prayer, we shall have taken the first step in any healing. Prayer: Save us, Searching and Healing Light, from the peril of lives which fear the light. Though Thy searching light sadden us, help us by Thy Grace to submit our thoughts, our affections and our desires to the tests of the love and goodness which Thou hast made sovereign in the way and hfe and truth of Jesus Christ, And what we thus discover amiss in ourselves help us to amend.
