It an overwhelming majority of our people get it into their heads that business is going to be bad. the chances are that it will be. Conversely, if an overwhelming majority becomes sold on the prospects of better business, the trend almost inevitably will be that way. At the present time--well, we'll let William Allen White oC The Emporia, Kans., Gazette take up the story at this point and tell you of a linotype that he has been planning to purchase: "Two years ago at this time the Gazette ordered a new fancy linotype with all sort of trimmings which ought to cost between 54,000 and 55,000. At the time, the boss had the money to pay for the linotype in the bank as a surplus. Business was .looking mp.

"But along in June the air was full of dusty hunches that business was not so good. "So we halted delivery on the machine until September. In September it was definitely bad so we extended the delivery time for six months, and again last year had the time of delivery of that linotype put off for another six months and' then another--and here it is 1933 and we haven't got the linotype yet. "Why? Because we are scared, just plain plumb ordinary scared. And then another thing we have had to use up that cash surplus to keep the front door open and the sheriff out of the 1 back door.

This year the phenomenon I'm refening to seemed to put in its appearance on Sunday, two days before the calendar schedules the young lady's formal debut What. Tuesday may bring, I wouldn't venture to predict. But to get back to this spring sound matter--the .cheep of the dingy little sparrows, the bark ot 3 dog, a rooster's crow--yes, even the bounce of an automobile over a rut in the road--seems to carry farther, lo have even a sort c~£ musical ring, which is peculiarly BouQiiet To MASON CITY'S SCHOOL BASKETBALL --for proving that it's just about impossible to beat a team that wont be beaten. In stature and brute strength there were many teams in Iowa this year that surpassed the Mohawks. But that isn t where the story ends. To the contrary, that's where it begins. These youngsters recognized their handicap and accepted it as a challenge--something that could be overcome only by superior light and superior strategy No community ever had an athletic representative of which it couid be more justifiably proud. Only three higher ranking teams out of almost 900. That's no mean honor! --o-- Sofety Sonnets ARTISTS MAY GAZE LANDSCAPE A N O IT'J C Q U R T I H A S P I L L / I cocrle.j ,,, Sl.le and. Cerro fjord.
