NOTICE The annual meeting of the stockholders of the Mason City Building and Loan Association will be held at its office with Bock Bros Co Kresge Building, April 13, 1931, at ":30 p. m. Allan F. Beck, Secretary. tel Hanford and Review Old Days. It is a-novel experience for a teacher to come back to her pupils after an elapse of 42 years and find they still call her "teacher." But that is what Mrs. Hattie Moore Mitchell, teacher in Mason City in 1S88 and 1889, did here Saturday night, when she was the guest of honor of her former pupils at the Hotel Hanford Saturday evening. Much water has "gone over the dam in the 42 years that have intervened since Mrs. Mitchell's residence in Mason City, but to her coterie of pupils who gathered for the dinner it seemed but yesterday that they were, playing pranks on each other and attending the inter- eating classes of this unusual teacher. The program was informal. First each of the pupils and other friends at the dinner was introduced, following which Mrs. Mitchell gave a talk in which she blended the serious aspects of life with delicate, sparkling humor. They Were Diggers. "You were all diggers or you wouldn't be where you are today," she told them, talking to the j paying group of men and women a if they still were her pupils. "You have the best part of you life still ahead of you," she addec "If we don't hitch our minds t something bigger than we are, then we are dead." Alert, keen, sympathetic, yet no too serious, she kept the gathering alternating by wiping back the tear and bursting with laughter. Whatever success she has had she told them, was because she saw the funny side of things rather than the serious. As simpls as that wa her formula. Worked Miracles. "There have undoubtedly been many steps forward in the science o teaching;;,in the: past.42 years, bu Mrs. Mitchell's Mason City pupil strongly contend pedagocial re search will never surpass the teach ing genius of this woman who, al most without experience, took classes that had completely baffled an" instructor the year before anc moulded them into something that somehow never lost the imprint of her work. The method In which she shaped the characters and minds of her pupils in the two years of work In Mason City was the chief topic of conversation at the dinner. "She was the first teacher I had who appealed to me as a human being," said one woman at the banquet. She Apologized. Once she had boxed Hugh H Shepard's ears only to learn later that he was not deserving of the punishment. She came to him and apologized. Hugh had never had a teacher apologize to him before. He wasn't troublesome after that. "She always wanted; to be square," said one of the pupils. "She never seemed to deal with two pupils the same way. "When she'd look me in the eye and say "Why. Willis,' it just made me ashamed of myself when I had done something wrong." said Willis G. C! Bagley. "That was always her way." In the classroom Mrs. Mitchell always had something in addition to the lesson, some maxim she would write on the blackboard to allow a minuted perusal or some other practice of that type. Once she had the class enjoy a particularly beautiful snowstorm, just for a minute, after which all turned to the class work. Mysteries Arc Solved. Many a prank that remained unsolved for years after its happening came to light at the dinner. One of the surprises of the event was not only' the manner in which the former local teacher recalled so vividly the events of that time, but that she also seemed to know her own pupils back again after 42 years. When she left the city they were only mischievous school youths, the sons and daughters of the .first scf.~. tiers. She returned to find most of them in leading positions in the business and professional life of the city. Judge A. H. Cummings, member of the school board at the time of Mrs. Mitchell's tenure as a teacher here, who wag also at the dinner, stated that cone of the group had ever been arrested. There wasn't one black sheep In the group taught by Mrs. Mitchell, apparently. As the dinner reluctantly came to a close in order that Mra. Mitchell might take a 9:35 o'clock train that evening, the group presented her with an album bearing autographs of those present. This ncluded the names of Mr. and Mrs. Bagley, Mr. Shepard, Mrs. Charles Patton; Judge Cumrnlngs. Mr. and Mra. E. G. Dunn, Mr. and Mrs. 7rank Currie, Mra. Clyde Brooks. Mr. and Mrs. Arthur L.

Fred Keeler, who now resides at Los Angeles and B. C. Keeler, who died some years ago, also were in the classes of the late eighties. Knew Her at Drake. A few of the group present had become acquainted with Mrs. Mitchell in the 17 years which she spent at Drake university. Mr. Dunn and Mr. Gildner were her pupils at the seminary at Nora Springs, where- she taught about 1896. One of the incidents brot out at the dinner was the placing of a calf in the belfry of the school building at Nora Springs. Mrs. Mitchell, who is one of the few American women to have her name and biography in the Mbrari bibliotek, the international gallery of women, at Paris, has been ut the Kansas State Teachers college at Pittsburgh for 17 years. She was one of the speakers at the convention of the north central division of the Iowa State Teachers assocition here last week. As the evening drew near its close Mrs. Mitchell distributed among those present cards with the poem, "Beginning the Day," which she had read and .enlarged upon in the course of her talk. , I'oein Is Read. The poem was as follows: "Give me n good digestion, Lord, and also something to digest. Give me a healthy body, Lord, with sense enough to keep it at its best. Give me a healthy mind, good Lord, to keep the good and pure ;n sight.' Which seeing sin is not appalled, but finds a way to set it right. Give me a mind that is not bound, that does not whimper, whine or sigh. Don't let me worry overmuch about the fussy thing called I. Give me a sense of humor, Lord; give me the grace to see a joke. To get some happiness out o£ life and pass it on to other folk." "Now I want you all to read this in Enumeration to Be Part of National Plan of Colonel Ijams. By KADFOKD E. MOBLEY.

So the poem was read aloud by all present. As the meeting closed the pupils crowded around their.teacher for an autograph on the poem cards. The teacher sat writing autographs until it became necessary to rush her to the station. "Be good boys and girls," she said. That was her farewell. Earlier in the evening she hail said, among other things, that "the pathway of progress is marked with farewells." , ^Cerro Gordo county veterans now m need of hospitalization or prospective patients of veterans bureau hospitals will be enumerated as part of a countrywide survey inaugurated by the bureau here.
