The marked interest of women following these sessions is evidence of the popularity of cooking demonstrations by an authority. No matter how long cooking has been done, there are little ideas about measuring ingredients, temperatures, decorations and serving that are welcome. These unusual hints in cookery are making these lectures helpful. Everyone is invited to attend this next session. Lecture Will Start At 2 P. M - BRING YOUR PENCIL AND NOTEBOOK TOMORROW Photographer, Located in Garner 34 Years, Retires Fred Fritsch Holds Record Among Businessmen in Point of Service. GARNER, March 24.--After. 34 years as photographer, Fred Fritsch sold his studio to his son-in-law, Robert Sinclair. Fred Fritsch has been in business here longer than any man now living in Garner. He has taken more pictures than any artist in Hancock 'county. He has taken the Garner high school graduating class at every commencement since coming to Garner. Many persons, now, grown up, look back I to their childhood days when Mr. Fritsch held up a stick of candy, a teddy bear or an unusual toy, to attract their attention while an anxious mother looked on, hoping for a perfect profile of her precious youngster. Mr. Frits Ms three sons studied photography under their ·· father. Henry is at Owatonnn, Minn., and Joseph is at Faribault, Minn. Rudolph J. was associated* with his father until he resigned to become president of the National Sales and Investment company. Mr. Fritsch because of advanced years wished to retire from active work. Robert Sinclair, who after graduation at the State University of Iowa, went to Lansing, Mich., where he was departmental manager for the Kresge store, resigned recently and has been studying photography under Henry Fritsch. Mrs. Sinclair, who was before her marriage Miss Marguerite Fritsch, completed a Cour year course from the music department of Northwestern universi- FRED FRITSCH. ty at Evanston, will open a studio and teach piano. Photographer Fritsch takes pride in flowers. He cultivates rare specimens of roses. The Fritsch gardens are among the most beautiful in Garner during the blooming season. Mr. Fritach and his son, Joseph, many years ago purchased the Kirk studio which they operated under the name of Fritsch and Son. Later they sold out to William Hclb- ling. Altho Mr. Fritsch is retiring, he plans to spend much of his time at the studio acre. You save time and trouble by coming to the BISMARCK. It is one of only five large hotels in the loop.

A large number of Mason City residents joined,with other^radio listeners thruout America' Monday night in listening to the broadcast- ,ing at the dinner given Ralph T. O'Netl, national commander of the American Legion, by the Canadian Legion at Montreal. Mason City's big interest in the event was that Col. Hanford MacNlder, United States minister to Canada, was toastmaster of the occasion. Colonel MacNider's tribute to the Canadian expeditionary forces, his contention that the United (States and Canada together must provide the leadership the world now needs and particularly the reference to the fact that his sons were becoming staunch Canadians drew thunderous applause from those at the dinner. The Mason City man stated that his father had come from Canada and added facetiously that now his three sons were being drilled by a Canadian sergeant major and were becoming so adept that they even doubted their father's ability to teach them anything-. The colonel referred to one incident when he had lined up the three boys at a place where the prime minister was to pass and instructed them that he would give them the signal when to salute. As the prime minister approached he nudged the oldest one and he nudged the next one. The two oldest got their cue and saluted magnificently, but the youngest, when nudged forgot himself, and looking up at the prime minister yelled, "Oh Canada." Commander O'Neil when introduced by Colonel'MacNider paid a number of tributes to the Mason Cityan, declaring that the United States, having- more than ordinary affection for Canada, sent the best it had as minister. Following Commander O'Neil on the program was Lieut. Col. Leo R. LaFleche, head of the Canadian Legion, who had attended the national convention oC the American Legion at Boston with Col. MacNlder last fall. The Legion conventions, he said, were very "strenuous" affairs. The N. B. C- network, which broadcast the program, disconnected Montreal at 9 o'clock, half an hour after the opening of the program, before the Canadian had finished his address. The famous Canadian national pipers' band and the grenadier guard's band were also heard as they gave short numbers between :addresses.. ( ' ;' . · " . , ' .

HE first telephones were inconvenient to use; they had one opening which was used holh as transmitter and receiver. Instructions posted near the telephone included the advice: "Don't talk with your car or listen -with your moulh." To remove the cause for this confusion, it soon became the practice to ecjuip telephone sets with a pair of combination receivers and transmitters, shaped much like a modern receiver. Either of these could be held to the mouth for talking or to {he ear for listening. In a few years, desk telephones were developed,.. continued improvements have resulted in the telephones of today . . . the wall, the desk and the hand telephones, all as convenient and efficient as it so far has been possible to make them. Equipment now available for telephone users through this Company* includes much more than one telephone for a customer. Extension telephones, switches, intercommunicating systems, portable telephones, extension signals amd other equipment have been devised so that each individual user can have telephone service that meets all the requirements in his Home or place of business. This Company continually strives to provide telephone service that meets the requirements of its customers . . . that is prompt, accurate, convenient and otherwise satisfactory . . . and constantly endeavors to improve that service. The first telephones had one openmq both for speaking and hearing Our Policy: The moat tclo- fihone service and thebettat the least cost to the public.
