MILLER REPLIES TO THOMAS VIEW Was Singled Out for Prose cution, Claim; Others Were Guilty Too. Replying to the explanation mad by Guy Thomas, /Clear Lake stat food inspector, Luke B. Miller, Ma son City grocer who is pushing a Investigation of the state's food In spection practices, makes clear tha his complaint is not the prosecutio of himself but Mr. Thomas' fatlur to prosecute others guilty of th same law violations. "I do not deny," he said, "that /xd strawberries of a short meaa ureia'my store the day-Mr. Thoma came in. They were bought from .local producer and offered for sa: in the original boxes and if shor weight, it was the fault of the pro ducer and not of myself. Had Goods on Three Others. "I do, however, charge that Mr. Thomas had undisputed and conclusive evidence against at least three other merchants of Mason City who had bought the same kind of strawberries in the same kind of boxes from the same producer. He refused to file information against these merchants or prosecute them." Mr. Miller charges Mr. Thomas with attempting to fix the prices merchants should pay farmers for eggs and insists Mr. Thomas employed an individual to plant stale eggs in a store at Northwood for purpose of "catching the merchant." "This fact," said iiir. Miller's statement, "was admitted in a letter sent out by the department ot agriculture." Calls It "Persecution." "I am interested in this particular transaction," Mr. Miller added, "only as a citizen of Iowa who believes the food inspection service should he operated for the benefit of all the people. Neither Mr. Thomas nor any other representative of the agricultural department should attempt to fix the price of eggs for FIVE CANDIDATES ILE PETITIONS WITH CITY CLERK 549 New Registrations Are Made; Election Is March 30.

Unusual interest in the election, which is to be held March 30, seems to be indicated by the registration of voters which was comparatively heavy, according to J. H. McEweu, city clerk. A total of 649 registrations or changes oT address were made 'since March 1, 569 of which were made this week. A large number of registrations of employes from certain industrial concerns In the city was mentioned by officials in the clerk's office.

His advice is valued and frequently sought. His letter, published below. Is greatly appreciated because he wrote it voluntarily. The local man's recommendation of 'the New England Mutual can well be heeded by those considering Life Insurance. HERE IS HIS LETTER My Dear Fischbeck: I thought that perhaps you would interested In knowing that your company, The New England Mu r tual, has recently cashed in my policy and I have their check for J2.631.75 before me. My policy was a twenty-year payment, thirty-year endowment. The premium was $?8.G5 per year. J paid in $1,573.00 and drew out at maturity $2,631.75. During this time I have borrowed money on the policy .several times and as much as $1,200.00 at a time. For thirty years I have been insured.. * cannot speak too highly of the dealings of your company with me or of this line of Insurance as an investment. I have saved $2,631.75 and I am certain that during part of this time I would not have saved anything had It not been for this policy. I think that Insurance- is one of the greatest investments for a young man and I prefer the endowment for the returns one receives. Yours most sincerely, If you'd like to see the original copy or above letter, ask Ralph FJschbeck, local representative of the' New England Mutual, and he will show it to you. WHY I AM A FORD DEALER Because of the reliable gas tank and simplicity of design. The tank Is made of terce plate metal (not thin sheet steel), is electrically welded (not soldered). It is placed in the cowl with the principal of gravity feed to the carburetor. It is one of the many patents held by Henry Ford that will not be duplicated or copied. The safety feature is Important as there Is a steel partition and air chamber between tank and motor as compared with a tank at the rear with exhaust coming out underneath. If a tank at rear of car overflows and the engine backfires there is danger of a fire. Ford has eliminated that hazard. The new Ford has 18 inches as a gas line, other cara have from 8 to 11 feet. There is little chance for a Ford gas line to become clogged and It is easy to clean. The gas tank in and airplane Is in the wings, directly above the motor, with gravity feed to the carburetor. Fuel pumps and vacuum feeds are complicated and occasionally get out of working order, that is why the new Ford and airplane use simple gravity feed with a short gas line. An accurate gas gauge is before the driver at all times, ho joints or fluid to leak out. See the gas tank in our cutaway exhibit .on our showfloor.
