DELCO-LIGHT COMPLETE SERVICE PARTS, BATTERIES PLANTS WATER PUMPS Central Battery Electric Company NEW COURSES TO BE ADDED NEXT YEAR, SAYS IRONS Stevens Takes Over-Work as Temporary Board Secretary. The incumbent staff of Mason City Teachers--53 in the high school and the Junior college and 127 in the grades--were re-elected, two new grade teachers were added and Tracy M. Stevens was appointed to fill the position of board secretary pending the return of R. L. James to that position when the school board met Wednesday afternoon in a special session. Mr. Stevens resigned hia board membership to assume his new duties and Frank C. Goodman, former board member, was appointed to the board vacancy. The appointment ofa temporary secretary for the board was made necessary because of the illness of Mrs. James E. Martin, secretary to Mr. James who had been acting as board secretary since Mr. James was wounded in the recent bank robbery here. Chairman of Committee. As a board member Mr. Stevens was chairman of the finance committee, a fact which particularly qualified him for the work, board members stated. Helen Green, who is completing this term as a teacher in Guttenberg and Miss- Mabel Joy Prusia, kindergarten instructor, are the new instructors elected. Superintendent of Schools, R. B. Irons' report, which was adopted by the board, stated tHat.the attendance department records indicated that there would be a substantial increase in attendance in Mason City schools next fall, necessitating the hiring of additional teachers. The number of new instructors needed will be determined after the school census is taken in June. Dependent upon the status of the budget after the needs of students are adequately cared for, a number of new courses will be established at the high school offering a wider diversification. At the present time, according to attendance records, there are about 75 more students in school here than at this time last year, and an increase of approximately 400 can be reasonably expected in the enrollment in September, Superintendent Irons said.

With the approach of the corn planting season, many farmers are writing for information as to how they can finance their crop expense for 1934, according to W. T, Frazer, secretary-treasurer of the Mason City Production Credit corporation. "I might advise these farmers that production credit is available for financing crop operations when the loans are based upon security composed of cattle, horses and sheep, as well as grain," Mr. Frazer explained. ' "In may communities farmers, through Production Credit associations, are adopting the budget plan of preparing a statement of their needs for the 1934 season and indicating at what periods of the year they will need the funds." Mr. Frazer indicated that under the budget plan, with the deferred withdrawal periods, the fanners can save considerable interest as the Production Credit association, after the loan is approved, keeps available the funds needed by the fanner so that he will be sure to have them, but they do not draw interest until used. Under this program, a farmer who raises livestock as well as grate, can make up his entire budget for the year. He can list the amount of money he is going to need for mill feeds, vaccination costs, seed, labor costs and other ·eneral expense, and arrange to nave the money available at the time it is needed. All production credit loans bear interest at the rate of 514 per cent Each borrower becomes a member if the association and subscribes to 5 per cent of his loan in stock, Mr. Trazer explained.

RED GROSS HAS SOCIAL SERVICE COURSE PLANNED Those Interested Asked to Notify Local Chapter Office. The American Red Cross has prepared a pamphlet, expected to meet a long recognized need in the field of social work in its "Introduction to Case Work and Unemployment Relief," Miss Agnes Hclbig, executive secretary, stated. It has selected a limited number of its chapters to offer a definite course of study to individuals or groups interested to this method of helping their fellow-men in their human difficulties. The course consists of a 15 to 22 hour study, supplemented by representatives from the professions such as the medical, nursing, legal and teaching professions. "The course is not intended to take the place of professional training In social work, but to provide a plan of study for volunteers who may be interested in serving in various case work groups or hi simply being a good neighbor to their fellowmen," Miss Helbig stated. "It is offered without any expense to the student inasmuch as the reference books and publications are all found in the local library. "The course will be planned for approximately 20 hours of study and it ia estimated it cannot be completed in less than a minimum of 15 hours. It is intended for both men and women because serving families requires the combined advice of both of these. The classes may be taught during the daytime or at night according to the possibilities of the instructor and the students desiring to enroll. "Consequently the Cerro Gordo county chapter requests that individuals or groups interested notify the home service office immediately so a class may be arranged." Cost Raising.
