Library Has Display Now on Rabbits Are long haired white angora rabbits practical and profitable to raise? This question has come to the library many times this fal and early winter. Government statistics s h o w that the American public uses about 100,000 pounds of angora rabbit wool each year. The angora wool seems to blend well with the textile fibres, such as cotton rayon and the new synthetic fibers or it may be spun into 100 per cent angora yarn. * * * Due to the war, importations from France and England, which formerly supplied 80 per cent of the angora wool used in America, have ceased, so it would seem that the demand for this product would be increasing and that the business would be a profitable one to enter here, according fo Miss Lydia M Barrette, librarian. The library has gathered as many bulletins and books as possible on the subject. Several that were ordered are out of print The Agricultural Index helps in locating pamphlets. To fit in with the active interest there has been in angora rabbit cultivation, the library with the help of Mrs. p. N. Stgmond of iensett, has arranged a display n the case in the lobby * * * The Sijrmonds have a quality angora rabbit farm and Mrs. Sismond brought a photograph of a rabbit in full coat and a clipped rabbit with the wool taken off in one clipping. They also brought 'a real sample of the clipped wool and some after it has been carded This wool is remarkably soft and '·'Tie and pure white. Hutches should be built to pro- ect the .rabbits and constructed so there will be a minimum amount of work necessary in feed- ng and cleaning. Even those people who are not thinking of raising rabbits wilt be interested n the pictures and the bulletins about angora wool and for some people :t may well offer an opportunity to augment income. --o-SPONSOR DRUM CORPS GARNER--At the first regular meeting of 1943 the Gifford Olson ost of the American Legion voted o sponsor a junior drum corps again under the direction of Harry C. Smith, director of instrumcn- al music in the Garner schools, e post also voted in favor of an increase in the soldier's relief und levy and will request the tate legislature to provide arger levy for this purpose.

Women are in the forefront of the complete transition that 1942 has brought. Another highlight of the change is the reversal of normal advertising trends. Railroads, transportation, telephone and public service companies now advertise to avoid all possible business. Landlords instead of advertising vacant premises now compare the various rewards offered by would-be tenants for information leading to a place to live. These bonuses, spread over many columns daily, usually range between $10 and $25. Here are some examples of the current Ladies Day in the far west: In Salt Lake the ladies now hold the revolver-and-flashlight jobs of nightwatchmen and special police. Sixty of them are driving- taxis. They're selling shoes, too, and wearing: slacks while doinj it because of the low-style seats. In the railroad yards at Pocatello, Ogden and Salt Lake through passengers on the transcontinental trains stare curiously as husky overallcd women armed with a wad of waste in one hand and a large wrench in the other, taking over the train servicing and car repairing; testing wheels and brakes. At Mount Vernon, Wash., a girl quit a career as a newspaper woman to drive a milk delivery truck. In San Francisco women are employed as "motor ladies" by one street railway system, and as conductors by both. The Municioal line doesn't use them on the front end as yet; "we're afraid they night still be too much interested n having their own way at the ntersections," was one explana- In San Diego, which has grown ^"L 3 13i ° federal census o£ 202,000 to more than 500,000 so far his year, women represent a large part of the population increase and throng the city's streets in slacks, going to and from the giant aircraft factories. Most of the slacks are uniform; the aircraft companies recommend but do not nsist upon a choice of two grades of neat uniforms for female em- ployes. * * * In Portland the fabulous world- ·ecord shipbuilding yards of ienry J. Kaiser are advertising or used cars and women to drive them. Men still hold down most t the new jobs here due to the idvertising and labor solicitation onductcd in New York by the Caiscr organization and the special rains run direct to Portland ship- ·ards from the cast. Sixteen thou- and men arrived in a period of wo weeks as a result of this cast- rn recruiting campaign; 70,000 dditional workers in all have ome to Portland so far in 1342 and 36,000 are beine an additional sought. Newspaper advertising takes unprecedented turns. Here are some samples: * * * "Please postpone your weekend trip to Los Angeles, thereby avoiding the possibility of being stranded and unable to return in time for work Monday." Santa Fe Railway in the San Diego Tribune- Sun. "Wanted Laborers, $70 per week; carpenters, $100 per week," construction company advertisement in the San Francisco Examiner. Meeting Planned by Woman's Group The Woman's council of the First Christian church will meet Friday at the church, with the board session at 9:45. The general business session is scheduled for 11, with a sack lunch at 12. The program will begin at 1:30 with group singing led by Mrs. A. Lee Long and devotions by Mrs. Fred Miller on "Building on the Greatness of God." Mrs. C. E. Cooper will read a paper on "The Third Front." -- o -First Robin Ed Simmons of near Marengo says this year was the first time he had seen a robin on his place at Christmas time. He reports that he saw the bird on Dec. 22 in a cherry tree. Peace Plan Discussed on Program , Delegates were elected to the D. A. R. national congress to be held in Chicago next April at the meeting of the Mason City chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution Wednesday afternoon at the home of Mrs. H. L. Wright, 321 Fourteenth street northwest. Mrs. Paul Loomis, chapter regent, presided at the meeting, at which Mrs. Clifton Oeschger and Mrs. W. J. Barbour were elected delegates to the congress and Mrs. Charles Summer Hall and Mrs. Otto, Williamson were elected alternates. The chapter voted to 'contribute $15 to the "Save a Life" fund which is used to help with the Red Cross blood bank work. A report of the chapter's Red Cross work showed that members are knitting, sewing on kit bags and helping with surgical dressings as well as taking courses in first aid and home nursing. Mrs. H. E. Winter read an article from the January issue of Readers Digest on "The American Plan for a Reorganized World," discussing the plans for peace which will follow the war and the development of a better world order to maintain peace through compulsory axis disarmament and the policing of the world and to make membership in the association of nations so beneficial that no nation can afford to remain outside. Hostesses assisting Mrs. Wright were Mrs. H. E. Swarner. Mrs. F. G. Carlson, Mrs. Etta Storer, Mrs. Fred Hcddens and Miss Dorothy Ransom. Mrs. C. W. Martin of Webster Grove, Mo., was a guest. Former Goldfield Residents Observe Golden Anniversary GOLDFIELD-- Mr. and Mrs D. F. Miller of Ada, Minn., former residents of Goldfield, observed their golden wedding when a group of 60 relatives and friends gathered at their home to honor them. The couple was married at Goldfield Dec. 24, 1892, and lived here several years following their marriage but have resided in or near Ada, Minn., for more than 40 years.
