I have just finished a tour ol the oys' and girls' hobby shows at Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. nd am brimming over with lings to tell you about them. At the boys' hobby show Evron arges guided me through and ointed out the new and unique xhibits. He informed me that this the thirteenth boys' show.

Miniature World Fair Those of you who do not plan to ttend either the east or west vorld's fairs, will have the oppor- unity to see one of miniature orm if you visit the hobby show. As I entered the display room J noticed a large airplane hanging rbm the ceiling and I was told il vas equipped with a motor anc ould actually fly. Below 'on able were hundreds of other models, all sizes. I noticed a father and son ar- anging a,mechanical device on a able and I. stepped up and asked vhat it was.-The boy appeared to e 8 or 9 years of age. The father old me that his son saw an automatic crane working at the Mil- vaukee docks the past summer nd with three small erector sets lis was his version of that same rane which he had arranged to ork automatically with a lever.

Smith, president of Upper Iowa university af Fayette, will be the guest of honor at a banquet to be held at the Eadmar hotel Friday evening from 6 to 7:30 o'clock. Local and visiting alumni are expected to attend. Rob Roy Ccrncy of Mason City is chairman of the committee in charge. bone, wood, fibre, leather, cloth, steel and rubber. I am sure the first button collector would take a bow to this exhibit. Possibly the donors had to resort to pins to hold up their clothes as this young lady has 1,336 different kinds of but- ons. The needle craft department is interesting and one department is devoted entirely to religious collections. Arts and Handicraft There is also a display of art, handicraft, antiques and curios from a public school. There are many more interesting things at both the shows which I do not have time to tell you about. Friday, at 2 p. m., there will be a public recital for girls entering the music division. Girls who swim may enter the swimming exhibit which will be Saturday afternoon. Three Afternoons The shows are open to the public on Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoon and evening of this week. A marionette show will be given at the Y. W. C. A. in the afternoons. Listeners to know Mason City it is imperative that you know what is in Mason City, the sponsors of the hobby shows will be happy to see you Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Y. M. C. A., and Y. W. C. A. paintings; bows and arrows; radios and a collection of hand made knives all different and expertly made. In one corner I noticed coffee tables, what nots which appeared to and stools be factory made. The work of the handicraft department of the Y. M. C. A. consisting of a bird house, bird feeders, carved animals and plaster casting which is done on liquid live rubber, is most commendable. Photography Steps In Photography is taking a big part in this show and the entries are wonderful. Probably the largest and best collection of moths and butterflies that there is anywhere is entered here, all mounted and enclosed in glass cases. As I was leaving I noticed a tables of cakes, fudges, cookies and canned goods, pretty as a picture and I was told that a number of boys are interested in baking and canning. Mr. Karges says they hope to make each show better, their aim being quality and not quantity and that when they have 300 boys making 300 entries, it will be the best show. Veritable Doll Land From there I hurried to the Y. W. C. A. to see the girls show and there I entered a veritable doll land, all within a doll house with green ivy growing over lattice entrances. The windows are curtained with red and white crepe paper and there are ancient dolls, medieval dolls and modern dolls all dressed to represent the ages, dolls from all countries, character dolls, story book dolls and sister dolls, representing a number of different orders. I was told that a doll collection was not complete unless it contained a kewpie doll and from the thousands of dolls displayed I found only one Kewpie doll, also noticed only one girl scout doll. Old Dishes I thought I was peering info my great-grandmother's c u p b o a r d when I saw dishes and glassware dating over a hundred years back. While I was looking amazed at a case containing 106 miniature animals I asked a young lady standing near if the animals were her collection and she told me they were not, but she had a collection of buttons just opposite all neatly and artistically classified, arranged and sewed on cards. they were of glass, china, pearl, Arc From TMarshalltown ALEXANDER--Mr. and Mrs, Keith Chandlier of Marshalltown spent Saturday and Sunday in the Elias Klincfelter home. Visitor From Des Moines KANAWHA--Mrs. Wayne Lewison of Des Moines came Sunday for a few days' visit at the home of her mother, Mrs. Lenore Mun- Bzzz! Bzzz! Gossip's in Air at Park Bees Find Jungle of Orchids at Kembles, Fall Off Rain Wagon "Bzzzz, Bzzzz, Bzzzz--" The buzzing of the bees is terrific in Central park. Why? All because of the orchids in Kemble's jungle scene. They stopped the bees cold! These sturdy old Iowa sting- hards came out with the first day of spring--as hardy a family of pests as ever took their dandelion juice and rain water straight. But here they found some of the most delicate liqueur a bee ever sipped--right in the heart of the orchids--an'd they all fell off the rain wagon. And 'Round About It was heavenly--it was intoxicating--and the bees buzzed in and out the door, around and around the rubber plants, played hide and seek in the Spanish moss --but never bothered a person. This jungle is not the ordinary thing in Mason City and the bees seemed to know it. Cattleyan orchids! the most popular of the variety, were shipped in here from Chicago. They were grown in New Jersey--and the growers claim it takes 7 years for one to blossom. Some of the plants from which these were picked are 150 years old. Are Parasites Orchids are parasites that grow on other plants. That is why they are shown in this jungle scene with rubber plants, Spanish hanging moss from Florida, ferns and ground moss and other heavy foliage. It is one of the most attractive windows displayed at Kembles down town store window, 7 West State street. The bees think so and there is no arguing with the bees. "Bzzz, Bzzzz, Bzzzz!" Musical Program at Odd Fellows Home A double quartet from the First Baptist church under the direction of Mrs. C. Lr. Crabb presented a program at the I. O. O. F. home Wednesday afternoon. The program included singing, piano duets and readings. Following the program Mrs. Crabb led the audience in community singing. The group was accompanied to the home by Mrs. A. S.
