FOUR MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE APRIL 23 mm 193* CLEANUP-PAINTUP OBSERVANCE STARTS IN MASON CITY JUNIOR CHAMBER SPONSORS EVENT OPENED MONDAY Campaign Being Pushed to All Sectors of Local Community. The annual spring cleanup, paint- up and repair project got under 'way in Mason City Monday morning; despite the handicap of a severe dust storm. Pointing out that the dust storms of the past several weeks will make cleanup efforts more necessary than ever, the committee made up of Bob Stoyles, Dean S. L. Rugland and Murray Goodman of the Junior division of the Chamber of Commerce, which is sponsoring' the project, made plans to push the campaign in all sectors. With a contest among school chi'- dren, a tin can movie at the Strand theater at 4 o'clock Monday afternoon, fire truck parades, distribution of cards and poster, a proclamation by Mayor J. J. Burns and other activities the junior chamber mem- .bers are planning a more thorough observance of the event than has been held in Mason City for some time. Mayor Burns informed the sponsors of the cleanup program that he was very much in favor of the project and that whatever facilities the city had to assist in the observance would be placed at the disposal of the committee. Cleanup observances of this type being planned to start this week are movements of the right kind, according to Mayor Burns. They tend to promote civic pride and stimulate a desire among the residents of the community to keep their premises clean and beautified. It is not the purpose of the members of the junior division to hold the campaign to any one week. Their hope is to start the cleanup effort this week and have it go on indefinitely. There is reason, they point out, why a cleanup campaign has to be confined to one week. Three Year Old Dies of Spinal Meningitis in Isolation Hospital Bonnie Pederson, 3 year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ole Pederson, who reside on a farm north of Clear Lake, died at the Isolation hospital at Mason City about 2:40 o'clock Sunday afternoon from spinal meningitis. She had been ill about nine days and had been at the hospital five days. Two other children in the family showed no symptoms of the disease. The body was taken to Clear Lake. Funeral arrangements had not been made Monday. Spark in Washer Is Cause of Cleaning Establishment Fire A spark in the washer of ffie Marshall ' Swift, Inc., cleaners, 210 Delaware avenue northeast, started a sm.all fire about 9 o'clock Monday morning. Employes of the plant had the fire extinguished when members of the fire department arrived. "AINT IT A GRAND AND GLORIOUS FEELING" By BRIGGS.

FLAT WALL PAINT, gallon $2.50 OUTSIDE PAINT, gallon 82.35 AUTO GLASS WINDOW GLASS HUGH DAVEY SON THE CLEAN-UP, PAINT-UP AND FIX-UP CAMPAIGN IS SPONSORED BY THE JUNIOR CHASIBER OF COMMERCE BLUE EAGLE TO APPEAR IN NEW ROLE ON MAY 1 S i n g l e Word, "Code" to Take Place of "We Do Our Part." Individualized to distinguish em ployers operating under approved codes, NRA's blue eagle will appear fay 1 with a new significance, ac- ordingr to information received by ie local NRA compliance board. Starting that date the eagle, its amiliar legend, "We Do Our Part" will be replaced by the single word code" and will identify the employer who did his part and who now, nder an approved code, is co-oper- ting with, ottiers tails trade or-in- 7"~"t8rSc6Hplet6~the work^bf ecovery." Beneath the word "code" will appear the name of the trade or industry to which the employer belongs and his individual registration number. Mailed to Employer. Its display by you," declares-! National Recovery Administrator Hugh S. Johnson in a letter being mailed to every employer in the county, "will inform the public that you are co-operating with the vast majority in stamping out unfair practices and methods of competition, and in giving your employes a square deal by paying code wages." "Last year," the administrator's letter continued, "you were asked to display the blue eagle as evidence of your promise to do your part and as a symbol of your faith in the ability of American trade and industry to defeat depression by united effort. .This year you are asked to display this distinctive blue eagle as a symbol that you, together with other members of your particular trade or industry, have united to complete the work of recovery." To Extend Agreement. For that relatively small percentage of employers not yet under codes, an executive order, also announced, will permit their continued use of the standard eagle as a sign of acceptance of the president's offer to extend his re-employment agreement with them until their codes have been approved. Accompanying the administration's letter to employers is a simple application card, addressed for return to state NRA compliance directors and an instruction sheet outlining the procedure to obtain the individual eagle. Ample quantities of the insignia are being printed and will be in the hands of state directors in a few days for distribution as soon after May 1, as applications for them can be cleared, to employers in the so- called service groups including the general retail and retail food and grocery trades and the cleaning and dyeing, restaurant, construction and trucking, industries. Eagles for other industries and trades will be distributed by the NRA Insignia section to which state directors will forward employers' applications. Denial Possible. Display of the eagle will certify to the employers' strict compliance with his code and under regulations issued by the administrator "any person may be publicly deprived of the right to display any blue eagle if he violates any provisions or the spirit and intent of any code, presidential agreement, or regulation, duly prescribed or approved." The instructions for employers applying for the eagle emphasize that "it will not be issued to anyone who Is violating a code or agreement" and that "the right to continue to display it depends on continued compliance."

(/P)--Rescue workers abandoned all hope today of finding any survivors in the depths of the blast wrecked Kakanj coal mines. Officials included in a death estimate of 146 the 86 men still unaccounted for. Sixty bodies had been recovered. Fifteen miners escaped or were rescued. It had been hoped some of the entombed men might be found in distant galleries, but when the bodies recovered last night were found to be charred and mutilated, rescue squads conceded the other miners trapped likewise died almost instantly. Gas Adds Hazard. Even the hope of recovering the remaining bodies faded as water welled up in the pit. Gas which overcame a number of diggers added to the hazards of rescue work. Many of those who had sought to reach the victims turned their efforts to building caskets.
