THE FT WE .LIVE IN A WEEKLY Page Devoted to Community Interests That Make for a Bigger and Better MASON CITY. APPARATUS MUST BE IN CONDITION TO FIGHT FLAMES Need of Watching Equip ment Stressed by Local Organization. This is the second of a series of articles prepared by the fire prevention committee at Chamber of Commerce dealing with methods of preventing disastrous fires. ' Ask'your fire chief or insurance agent how to put out an oil fire-an electric fire--an ordinary fire. His answer will show that a first aid method effective on one kind of a fire may prove useless on anothet kind. · Which explains why so many fires gain · destructive , headway, inter rupting- business and causing losses that fire insurance can never pay. · Fire-fighting apparatus ' a n c equipment in buildings and home, remain inactive for a year or per haps years after its installation and it js expected to respond with 100 per cent efficiency when the fire happens. He Grows Lax. This extended period of non-use is often accompanied by the tendency on the part of the owner of it to grow lax toward the maintenance of. it,, and this laxity may result in a serious consequence. Firemen and insurance men who inspect buildings know this to be u fact. ... · · , - . And many places In Mason City have fire equipment hanging up that Is useless as a fire extinguishing agent due to the fact that it has not been looked after and will not work. :. .1'. This equipment is worth maintaining- and should be maintained or else taken down and sold to the junk man. Will Be Called On. For if it is not done some day it will be called-on and the person depending on it will find that it is a failure and a serious fire may tak»=! place! . . . ,. · You are responsible for this piece of fire equipment Mr. Mason City Merchant or home man for it was purchased by you and you expect it to operate in case of fire, but .what care have you given it? .;'.. :^9l£ ; ypu dp not intend to.keep It up "iajid!;if it will not work, why keep'it b'efp're the public as a -guardian of safety?

N. Dailey, head .of the conservatory of music, who is traveling with them. While the program offers music of lighter and recreational phases, within the bounds, of good taste, music of a higher type is also presented in the choral .offerings of the club. The soloists are music students of serious purpose and a considerable attainment of artistic development. An extended stay is scheduled in Chicago, prior to the appearance at Mason City'and'while there the club has several radio broadcasts scheduled, ope over radio station WGN, ; Saturday,.March 21..The three and a half weeksViour of the .club will be wound up' with a performance at Westfield, April 1. · The personnel of the club pictured above is, Joseph Mjelda, Seattle, Wash.; Homer Smith, David Stuelpnagel, Blake Wyman, president; Harold Burke, Ward Wyman, Chester McVay, Burke Bennett and Dan Stuelpnagel of Yankton; Kent Tralle, Neodesha, Kans.; Gail Flint, Colome; Felix Schwartz, Freeman; Newell Sherburne, Flandreau; Deles Casey, Chamberlain; Walden -Lee, Phillip; Paul Muilenburg, Beresford; Curtis .

Mr. Sloan, a favorite of the WNAX {Yankton). radio station, will give the Flower. Song from "Carmen." . -NOW IT CAN BE TOLD- Potter Lived in Heyday of Practical Jokes Volume Should Be Compiled of Anecdotes That Made Up Early Life of Former Mason Cityan; Hobo Convention Would Eequire Several Chapters.. In one of the newspaper sketches f T. A. Potter it was suggested iat he was an unexcelled teller of tones. That was true. And it would ave been a statement of fact to say hat most of his stories, and the est of them, were drawn from his wn experience and observation. Mr. otter's .young manhood was lived the heyday of the practical joke. It will be a pity indeed if some- ody does not compile a volume of is anecdotes. Perhaps his son, Merl, ne of the ablest newspaper writers n the middle west 1 , vfill.dp .it. Won- erful material he would have." The enerations'to come are entitled to ome of the juicy morsels which rould go into such a book.! Directed Hobo' Convention. One chapter, at least, and prob- bly several, would have to do with Hr. Potter's part in the world-famous hobo convention at Britt vhich attracted fun-lovers and ewspaper writers from all parts of he country. Straw-filled stalls at he fairgrounds served as beds for he visitors"who arrived on rods and 'side door pullmans." "Bailey of Britt" was T. A.'a principal asspclate n this unique venture. Today, signs it the edge of town call attention to ;he fact that Britt was the seat-of i at novel gathering'. Another story for this suggested book would have to do with a visit once made by Mr. Potter anc Charles Webster to'a lumberman's convention in Kansas City. In the party was a third party and if memory is not at fault, his name was Waterbury and his home was in Mora Springs.- An Avalanche of Dogs. Who but Mr. Potter and Mr. Webster could have conceived the idea of advertising. in the Kansas City Star something like this: / "WANTED--1,000 dogs of any and all breeds for the Klondike gold rush." And the name attached to the ad was . that Q£...Mr., Waterbury; ;,His hotel ah3 robin number'were 1 also supplied. The result-was a veritable mob of dogs at the hotel in question. Every youngster in Kansas City,' apparently, had.a dog for sale! Imag- ne Mr. Waterbury's amazement ind consternation, when called by rhe hotel management to -account for his part in the, transaction. The end of this story Is not known to the writer. But the writer of this proposed book could learn it. i Then there's another delicious story which had its setting in Britt. It cost .Mr. Potter quite heavily in a financial way. But it provided entir- taihment for him and his friends all the rest of his life and the investment was not to be censured, ypu'll a^ree when you examine the story. Remember This, Dr. Braley? It was in Mr. Potter's, early days at the Hancock county town and he rather prided himself on keeping abreast of the times in the matter A line O'pipe ... . By T. PIPE ' By T. PIP Stick to the Pipe--Let the Smoke Blow When It Will of clothes. The fashion edicts called for shirt waists and that was what Mr. Potter ordered from his tailor. The suit was plaid of a large check design, one, as Mr. Potter described it, that could be heard before it could be seen. . " Easter was at hand and the tailor was working nights to complete the job for an auspicious "first show- .ng." One night Mr. Potter happened into the shop and to his utter dismay, he discovered that another suit of .identical material and design was^belng made'.fpCrDr. E.-yE;: Braley, then as now a popular dentist in Britt. . Here's where T. A. did some fast thinking, the result of which was this: On an Easter morning Dr. Braley walked down the main street of Britt and met a man wearing a suit exactly like his own. But it wasn't T. A. Potter. It was the one and only colored gentleman of the town. Expensive But Worth It. /The price of that joke .was the price of- a tailored suit. But with Mr. Potter, money invested in a good practical joke--never the vicious or muscular kind--was money well invested. Off hand this writer thinks of nobody whose life 'would lend itself more admirably to biographical treatment than this good friend to whom Mason City so recently has had to speak an affectionate goodbye. McKinley Community Center Sees Movies of Reaper Progress Five reels of moving pictures entitled "The Romance of the Reaper" were- shown Friday'night at the meeting of the McKinley school corn- unity center. This picture was made in celebration of the centennial of the invention- of-the reaper by Cyrus H. McCormick... The first .reaper, and progress of the machine to the present huge combines were shown. S. J. Sobieske, advertising manager for the local branch of the International Harvester company, gave a short Introduction to the picture. .It was announced that no meeting will be held next week because of school vacation. Funeral Services for Mrs. Teresa Lehman to- be at Church Monday · Funeral services for Mrs. Teresa Lehman, 67 years old, 419 First street -northeast, will be held at 9 ulclock Monday forenoon at the Holy Family Catholic church. The rosary will be said at 8 o'clock Sun- .day evening at her home. Mrs. Lehman died at her home Friday morning. She had been a resident of the city for .the past 50 years. Gospel Team to Have Charge of Services The First Baptist church gospel team will have charge of the service at the St. John's : Baptlst-church at 11 o'clock Sunday morning. Sunday school at 12-30 o'clock. The B. Y. P. U. meets at 6:30 o'clock. The gospel team will again be in charge of the service at 7:30 o'clock. Blessed are the poor.

The last stretch of the 1,000 mile gas from the oil fields of Texas to pipeline which is to carry natural Mason City, is now nearing completion." , ' Employes of the People's Gas and Electric company were at work this week laying the line that is to connect Mason City with the 'big 20 inch line from Texas, about two miles west of Ventura. Line Being Built. The connecting line will follow a right-of-way purchased along a projection of Fourth street northwest from-Clear Lake, to Mason City turfing diagonally south a mile beyond the airport to a reducing station that is being built just across the -pavement from the west entrance of the port. , .The pipe from Ventura to the reducing station- is 10 inches in diameter, while from the reducing station into Mason City the pipe is In? creased to 16 inches in diameter. This increase Is made necessary because of the reduction in'the pressure of the gas. To Reduce Press nre. In the main line and thru tho connection line to the reducing station the gas will have a pressure ot frdm 20p to 300 pounds a square ! nch. At the station this pressure 19 reduced to about 35 pounds, at which pressure is goes thru the bulk lines in Mason City, being again reduced to about 4 dunces at the governor stations for residential distribution. '' . Indications are that the natural gas will 'be introduced Into the Mason City system some time in April. Extensive plans have been made for turning the new gas into 'sections of the city at a time so as to make possible the necessary adjustments with the least amount of inconven ience. The adjustment will' consls 1 chiefly in decreasing the size of thi orifices in the .gas appliances. SPRING BEGINS TODAY Glad .spring is here, Hip! Hip! ·Hurray! · ^ ' The glad and happy warming spring. : The golden sun shines down upon, ' The birds and beea and everything. · . " . . . · v GHad spring is here, let's sally forth, And shout the news with every breath; ' Then hurry In the house again, Before we maybe freeze to death. .. . - - P E ; This 5s the :'.isi time since we haye : been trying to write this column that we failed to receive a'few spring poems. Can it be'our Dread- ers are · losing their yputhfulj romantic, exuberant, : copious joy of the spring? Or can it be we.have no readers ? Considering the quality of the material' appearing in this column of mirthless humor of late we are rather' inclined to believe the latter conjecture to be correct. ' P I 1 PR "Why don't my.. readers write to me?" The writer said, said he; "I'd greatly like to hear from them, Wherever they may be." But when for them he Went to look, No readers could he see. PI J. P K Politics is beginning -to warm up a little. That is if politics can warm up. We note our old friend, Wes Pagenhart, .and his colleague, Mr. Knudson, have come out in favor of the city manager plan of government. There is nothing like being progressive and coming out in favor of something we have.had for several years and that \ye cannot get rid of for another year or two. PI 1 PE Now if Mr. Ooupar and Mr. Wolf will just come out in favor of woman suffrage there will be gome real live issues injected into the campaign and do much to add to the gaiety of the occasion. PI i PE to see why there is so much concern being exhibited . by ;hosB who' foster .the city ·manager lan o"f governmen'£ If it has-merit t will survive against all opposition, f it proves to be the bunk, all the iropaganda in the world will not ave it. · PI 1 PE Come to think of it, it wasn't a iign we saw. It was a dog. The attest dog in the whole world. The jood looking salesman said it be- onged. to the boss. Which if It does, the boss must be a good provider. But the dog is a mighty poor advertisement for weight reducing compounds. PI 1 PE There may be a distinction between giving away a chance on an automobile in a merchant's window and giving away a chance on several articles displayed in tho windows of many merchants. But there Isn't a great deal ol difference. Per-haps if the firm with the automobile in its store'window hud given the car as a part of the .spring opening campaign there would have been no objection to the transaction.

THE CRUISE OF THE PRZEMYSL .CHAPTER 27 We had, however, gone but a short distance when I observed a boy sitting on the bank of the stream, flshpole in hand and whis tling merrily. Stopping the boat : stood aghast. "Don't you know,' I shouted at him, "that you can' whistle in this town?" "Who says I can't?",he asked be tween the bars of his whistle. "Don McPeak. He doesn't permi whistling In thia town." ''Aw gwan. Don doesn't care I you whistle. He's a good guy. Why he whistles himaelf." Thinking it must be a fu.nn town wherein one person says thi: McPeak person will permit ni whistling and another person sayi he whistles himself, I ordered ful speed ahead.

NEW IOWA NEWSPAPER STORY IS PUBLISHED THE FRONT PAGE MYSTERY, by Graham M. Dean of Iowa City. Appleton Press. Boys of high school age will find n this latest volume of an old Iowa newspaperman a highly interesting story i and a. riev/sp ap tr b ackgroUnd helpfully revealing' to' any who ma# wish to enter journalism as a life work. In every particular it is a worthy successor to Mr. Dean's earlier book for boys, "Gleaming Rails." All of the Action in the story centers about the Gate City News, a newspaper which for three, generations had been In the. Merritt fam- ly. To start things moving, there's the looting and burning'of the Merritt home' while Mr. Merritt, the publisher, is. away from home on an unexplained mission. Using the' actual names of Iowa City newspapermen, -Mr. Dean 'covers" the fire. The staff photographer is strapped on a tower of LHe ancient, house and the reader Is introduced to' the ingenuity of Bob Merritt, the. young managing editor, by the rescue. Step by step, the process of Issuing the extras is detailed with a moving story" to keep it from becoming 1 dull. Strange events connected with the arrival of an airplane, the opening o£ a mysterious letter written by the missing uncle to his nephew* a fight in the dark against an unknown assallant-in the uncle's private office, the search for the uncle in the ."Bitter Lake" country, featured by the intrigue and machinations of an old political boss sent to the pen by the elder Merritt some 20 years previously, supply ar interesting four or five hours of reading. And there's an exciting surprise at the end. Mr. Dean is the managing editoi of the Iowa City Press-Citizen and his style thruout the book Is that of the journalist possessed of a proper sense of word meanings and values. KEEPING UP ON BOOHS DIFFICULT TASK . Keeping ,up wtth the good novels is in itself a task at the moment. "When the flood of new books seems about to overwhelm you," a publisher admits, "you must relax or be lost" 'But suppose you do not relax. So what? You are apt to mlsa a book like "The Pogs," or "The Forge,' or "The Squire's Daughter." "The Dogs" is a novel of the Rus sian revolution by Ivan Nazhivin, a former anarchist who gets along no* better with the soviet and now i! living in Belgium. It is a dog's-eye view of the Rus slan upheaval. A prince's, favorite pointers, Dobrynia and Svietlana fine aristocrats, and a shaggy pro letarian hound are the principa characters. ; They see terrifying things. Firs' life is good and the beautiful Sviet lona has pups out of the pleblan Sledol's moment of unexpected ec Stacy. They, see a hunt and see a grand duke flick an eye fr6m one of his hounds with a whip. Seidoi goes to war, is taken prisoner, lives a while in Germany and steals back to Rua sla. He feels starvation and sees his fellow dogs quarreling at dump heaps until they are shot down, seer the uprising of 'the villagers, the hanging of the prince's dogs, Un slaughter and .looting of the revolu- "on. Nashivin's meaning is not difficult to comprehend. NOVELS OF SOUTH SHOW SHJLL. T. S-jStriWingvautiior ot;.S south, turns his hand to one of "thi most glamorous periods in the south's history in "The Forge." It Is the story of a middle class Alabama family during the perioc which saw the development, the ostng, and the reconstruction after the war between the states.

The fact that certain diseases are ot accompanied by pain or dis- omfort makes it impossible for the verage person to diagnose his own ondltion, according to Dr. .C. E. Dakin, health director. The real ause of a condition may be some- hing almost entirely hidden, be aid. ' ' " Many serious diseases' are insid- ous and come on gradually, and vhen the break comes the damage s done, Dr. Dakin said. The annual physical examination as a check OB lealth condition was recommended iy the health director. "Many people consider that they are in perfect health because they xperience no pain," gays the state epartment of health. "This reason- ng is often entirely wrong for while some disease processes make heir presence known by painful ymptoms, there are many others which are unaccompanied by pain until the late stages when permanent and serious damage has been lone. Diseases which occur without 'ainful symptoms are the worst cind of diseases, since they creep upon their victims and often are present for long periods of time ind when at last discovered It is too ate to stop their progress or even . o save life. The loss occasioned by diseases of this nature amounts to about 700,000 lives a year thruout he country.-The disease conditions which do cause more or less pain urnish the lowest death rate, probably because y the pain leads to a search for the cause and .allows treatment to be instituted early* Among the diseases which have serious consequences but which are lot accompanied in the early stage3 )y pain are cancer, kidney disease nephritis), arterio-sclerosis (disease of the blood-vessels), heart disease, . diabetes, tuberculosis and syphilis.
