Floyd Brouillard long time resident of Mason City and former business agent of the local union o£ the Packinghouse Workers Organizing committee, left Monday for Fort Worth, Tex., to resume his work as a representative of the national organization. Mr. Brouillard came to Mason City in 1929 from Texas as a cook at the Hotel Hanford. He was then and had been for 14 years a member of Culinary Arts, an A. F. of L. affiliate.

Floyd Brouillard to Texas as National PWOC Field Man FLOYD BBOiniXABD TELLS OF ROAD WORK IN ALASKA Don O'Neil Relates Experience at Rotary. Don O'Neil, business manager or the Clear take office of the Mason City Globe-Gazette, told Rotarians Monday noon of his work throughout the past summer on the new United States highway to Alaska. He was one of the timekeepers with the Dusenbcrg construction company. Taking his audience with him on a sketchy jaunt from Mason City to Edmonton, Whitehorse and the Big Delta airport, Mr. O'Neil covered ground rapidly in his friendly chatty talk. He told of shortages o£ various kinds of food; difficulties o£ transportation; lack of equipment; and general slowness in g e t t i n g started on the job, but said that a "mighty fine" job was completed before they bx'oke camp in October. * * * He mentioned briefly Gulfcana, "What Fir," Thunder Mountain and Tanacross camps and of the difficulties encountered in reaching the prospective highway itself. At Tanacross the group divided into two camps, one working to the right toward "Whitehorse and the other to the left toward Fairbanks. One group met the Sears outfit, which started from Big Delta, at the Robertson River on Oct. 7. While 150 miles of road was constructed only 35 miles of this was actually on the Alaskan highway. Altogether the three groups constructed about 180 miles of highway, which saved approximately 400 miles of travel required before the road was constructed. Most of this highway will be usable next year, according to Mr. O'Neil. * * * The return (o the states aboard the Columbia, formerly of the Alaskan steamship company, was described by O'Neil. who said the entire trip was made in a convoy of six ships. The entire highway covers about 1,600 miles, is gravel topped. 20 feet wide, and extends from Edmonton to Fairbanks. L. A. Moore, in charge of the program, introduced Mr. O'Neil to the club. President Hugh H. Shepard welcomed Carl H. Dwyer, manager of the Northwestern Bell Telephone company, a former president of the Ames Ro- tory club, to club membership here. Barr Peterson, of Mason City high school, led the group in community singing, with Sidney Slott at the piano. Postal Officials Ask TJiat Military Mail Bear Return Address Military mail \vhich bears insufficient postage is greatly delayed, and will never reach the addressee if a return address is not on the envelope, H. J. Steinberg, assistant postmaster announced today. All mail on which additional postage is needed must be returned to the sender, since the practice of collecting for postage at its destination has been discontinued with all military mail. Letters which lack postage are sent to the dead letter office at Washington, D. C., and mailed from there to the sender. If no return address is on the envelope, the mail will be destroyed, warns Mr. Steinberg. RE-APPOINTED TO OFFICES GARNER--Frank J. Schoun and Pcnn Eckels, Hancock county supervisors, and Mrs. Paul Elling were re-appointed members of the Hancock county Board of Social Welfare for the year 1043 at a meeting of the board of supervisors here Monday. VICTORY GARDEN IMPORTANT THIS YEAR-VORHIES More Food Must Be Raised,, He States on KGLO Forum Pointing to the immediate need of looking ahead to summer and fall food requirements, F. W Vorhies, victory garden leader o£ Mason City, told KGLO Forum listeners Monday 'night that they must grow much of their food in Mr. Vorhies, who is public relations director of the victory garden section under civilian defense, said that 1342 brought good results to victory gardeners' el- forts. "With a year of war experience behind us," Mr. Vorhies said, "it is now time for us to begin plans for another year of mass food production. "II it was necessary for us to increase production last year, it is doubly important today. * * * "We are told," said Sir. Vorhies, "that our armed forces are consuming 10 per cent of our /cod and (hat 20 per cent it BO- me to our allies, This means that tbe rest of us most get along an 70 per cent." Transportation difficulties complicate the problem, Mr. Vorhiei declared. Rationing of canned fruits and vegetables to go into effect soon means many families will have to supplement their rations with homo-canned goods, the speaker said. "Many people have debated the question as to whether or not a backyard or vacant lot garden pays," said Mr. Vorhies. "This year we can't stop to measure the cost m either money or effort '·Last year we suggested that it might not be worthwhile to battle a lot infested with quack grass. This year," he emphasized, "if necessary we must pay the price in effort." * * * _ Urging immediate attention to victory garden needs, Mr. Vorhies said plans should start now. Look for a suitable plot of ground, he advised. Arrange for fertilizer, study seed catalogs, get tools in shape, he warned, adding that seed and tools were scarce and hay to be conserved. "Many city folks have become expert as growers of flowers," Mr. Vorhies pointed out, "but have not found room for the lowly vegetables. "If there is not room for both, some.of the flowers may have to be displaced. One flower-grower said recently that she was going to plant tomatoes among her iris. For persons who complain of lack of time, for those who are unwilling to make the effort to carry through with a victory garden, Mr. Vorhies said: "The romance of seeing things grow, of eating things produced from your own plot of ground with your own effort, is worth any price that will be paid in honest sweat and aching muscles. "Let us not forget that our boys in the south Pacific or northern Africa are paying greater prices, that you and I may continue to live in this great country of ours."
