BECOMING SCARF NECK GLOBE-GAZETTE PEERLESS 15 CENT PATTERN 160 Fifth Avenue, New York City by DIANA DAY Descriptions of the damage caused by the recent floods in the east | were included in a letter received j by Sam Richer, 321 Third street! northwest, from his sister, Mrs. Sam Bayer, who lives in New York and recently paid a visit to Haver- tul], Mass., and the surrounding district. Mrs. Bayer writes,." Today I was on River street and saw all the wreckage that the water left. They are still working day and night removing ihe mud that is piled up on the streets. All the houses except a few are condemned and you look into the rooms and see the furniture turned white from the water. Trees Like Scarecrows "All along the river banks, the trees look like scarecrows and the banks are white. It looks like snow. At Bradley's Brook, a cemetery was washed up and coffins were carried down the river. Some split | open and dead bodies floated off. | "At Manchester. N. H., all the animals from the zoo were washed down the Merrimac. The electric wires are all down and the fire alarm signal is out of commission. The Essex street fire station was completely submerged. There was no light, heat or power for two weeks and people used candles to light the rooms. "Every car that drove into Haverhill was stopped by the National Guards and $.50 was asked from each driver to help the flood sufferers. Two hundred thousand stickers were sold this way. After. 9 o'clock there was martial law and ; no one was allowed on the streets; , Expensive Candles. ; "Candles were sold for 50 cents [ apiece and if you wanted a stamp, you had to cross the county bridge to Bradford, Mass.. to get it. The Groveland is still closed to traffic, only pedestrians allowed. The Colonial theater which was 15 feet in water is still being repaired. "The highest point was 35 feet. Haverhill was isolated. The Little River overflowed on the left and the Merrimac on the right. The sta'.ae of General Lafayette in Lafayette square sank four feet. There is much more but it is too much to tell. It will take at least a year to get things back to normal." Father-Son Banquet Will Be Wednesday at L 0. 0. F. Hall Mason City lodge No. 224, I. 0. O.

St. Joseph's Senior Class Gives Drama Effective Setting Adds Much to Production, "The Closed Door." "The Closed Door," St. Joseph senior class play, drew a large number- to the school auditorium Sunday evening. The drama was entertaining and members of the cast uniformly good in playing their parts. A new setting, designed especially for the play, added much to the effectiveness of the production. Green walls paneled with white, a stair case, and built-in doors and win- doks, replaced the gray draperies formerly used in all the school entertainments. Conspicuous in the scene was the closed door that separated inimical families. The double hero and heroine roles in the drama were played by Davida Mariclc, Phyllis Cain. Anthony Sics. seger and Robert Poshusln. Genevieve Bernemann. Winifred Meade and Lowell Peterson acted as Unk- ing characters for the main players. Hubert Reardon as a Jew. Virginia Kelley as an inveterate borrower and Mary Agnes Connor as one "beautiful but dumb" afforded comic relief to the near-tragic plot. In the role of Doctor Winslow, the elerly man whose enmity for the heroines kept the door closed, was Marcus Ryan. Assisting the players in the evening's entertainment, the high school orchestra played "Military Escort," "Activity March," "Indian Boy" and "Beautiful Lady in Blue." Ushers, chosen from the senior class, we're Junior Hubbard, Lawrence Majewski. Elmer Edel and Donald Gasaway. Felix Waychus was in charge of the stage properties and lights and back-stage effects. 'Programs for the evening which bore a design suggestive of a closed door, were in charge of Dixie Ward and Doris Paulsen. Comedy to Be Staged April 2 7 by Ladies Aid "Johnny Grows Up," a comedy sponsored by the Holy Family Ladies aid will be presented in the Mason City high school auditorium April 27 at 8:15 o'clock.
