Accidents Can Be Stopped Says Former Cab Driver Little Won Medal for His Record While Resident of Chicago. , velties, wood clock book binding, tops, Probably one of the best qualified of Mason City drivers to speak authoritatively on safety, Harry. W. Little, proprietor o£ Little's Radio Service shop at 111 East State, maintains that accidents can be prevented if the proper education in driving is (aught each automobilist. Mr. Little for three years drove a taxicab in Chicago, during all that time escaping accident despite the fact that his cab was driven from the loop to Evanston, to every part of Chicago and through what is believed to be (he world's busiest corner -- at State and Madison streets. Classes Held. 1 "In 1925, when I first went I work for the Yellow Cab, instruc tion classes were held, at whic the drivers were told 'there wi always be accidents, you can avoid them, but when accidents d occur, don't fail to report them t the company,' " said Mr. Little. "But the following year th Yellow Cab company launched safety campaign. A fund whic was appropriated annually to pa for accidents was set aside, aiv anything saved from this fun through caution of the drivers wa distributed to them. In 1927 th semi-annual bonus derived fron this fund was $313,000. If a drive was involved in an accident, percentage of his bonus was de ducted, and given to the others. "If you were involved in an ac cident you were 'layed off indefi nitely, but if the wreck was du to negligence or incompetence on your part, you were fired out right. One driver had a record o 18 years without an accident. "Drivers were warned to b careful when in Evanston, for th police of that city launched an in tensive safety campaign agains all traffic violators. Awarded Badge, "If you drove two years withou an accident, you were awarded a silver badge, and if you succeedec in driving three years without ac cidents, you would be given golden badge. "Chicago's traffic system was s arranged that automobiles coul( speed through the residential dis trict at a rate of '30 miles an hour without danger of pedestrians be ing hurt, for the line of cars woulc travel by. so fast, there would b no chance for a pedestrian to cross the street until the light was with him."

Warn Deaf Man Not to Hear So Noisily LONDON, (/P)--A deaf man who "heard" too loudly halted proceedings In Justice Finlay's court at the old Bailey Thursday.

He suffered NEW STYLES MEATS EVIDENT CULLEN STATES To Give Demonstration a Hotel Hanford on Night of March 16. Meat cuts are going modern! Beef, pork and lamb cuts popii lar even 10 to 15 years ago hav been repjaced by new style smaller in size, more attractive i appearance and' easier to carve. The homemaker of today lool* for modern cuts of meat just a she looks for styles in dresse furniture and automobiles. These are points which will b emphasized by Max O. Cullen specialist of the National Livestoc and Meat Board, who will conduc a meeting for retail meat dealei at !he Hotel Hanford on the eve ning of March 16. Were Unheard Of. Twenty years ago, according t Mr. Cullen, butterfly pork chops country club steaks and lamb rib lets were unheard of. Today thes and dozens of other cuts whic fill a definite place, are familia to the housewife who is anxious t have the fullest possible variety i her meat menus. "The homemaker is America' greatest food shopper," states Mi Cullen. "She buys 85 per cent o the meat consumed in 32,100,00 homes. A survey shows that sh spend something like twenty mil lion dollars daily to supply he family with three square meals, o an aggregate of more than seve billions of dollars every year. · Has Key Position. '·Meat is the greatest single itej of her food budget. For this rea son the homemaker occupies a ko position in relation to the livestoci and meat industry. The entire in dustry caters to her wants. He demand for smaller meat cuts ha been responsible for a market change in the. type of iivestod which reaches the market today a compared with only fifteen ti twenty years ago. This same home maker has created an equallj noticeable change in the pacldn and processing o£ meat and sh has revolutionized the retailing portion of'the business." For these and other reasons, Mi Cullen asserts, it is imperative tha the retailer keep fully informed 01 all new and authentic informatio relating to the product he mer chandises--meat. The ,'r e t a i 1 e meeting presents just this oppor tunity. · · · , . ' Oscar W. Waiimo of Jacob E Decker and Sons will serve a chairman of the meeting.

H.C.Keisfer (Guardian of 0. B. Govig Estate) FIRST NATIONAL BANK--MASON CITY FELLOWSHIP OF PRAYER Daily Lenten Devotional Prepared by Dr. Willard L. Sjierry for {lie Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America, Fifth Week--"Faith and Hope" Faith as Hope Thursday, March 11. " H o p e makelh not ashamed." Read Romans 5:1-8. Saint Paul is fond of word sequences, in which one idea grows logically out of another. Consider the passage for the d a y : Tribulation - patience- expe r i e n c e- hope. No one but a Christian would h a v e t h o u g h t o f words in such a series. The average m a n w o u l d s a y : Trouble - impatience - dis- illusio n m e n t DR. SPERM and despair. The word "hope" has lost far too much of its Christian meaning. We use it today to suggest the bare possibility that things may turn out a little better in the future Thus, we speak of "hoping against hope. The Christian word "hope" is entirely lacking in this note of uncertainty. It is, on the contrary, an absolute certainty as to the outcome oC life. WLiat lies between the present moment and that goal may be obscure, the end is plain and clear. We are living in a day when cynicism is much too comfortably close to our minds. We need to recover the conviction that in the long run evil is suicidal and that goodness alone has "survival value," Through a mediaeval book of devotions written by the English mystic, Julian of Norwich, there rings repeatedly, like the note of a great bell, one recurring sentence, "All shall be well, and all -shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well." This is Christian hope. Prayer; Almighty God, who hast granted us through Jesus Christ a reasonable hope, save us from living as those who have no hope, and teach us to lean upon thy power to make all things work together for good. Amen. Maybe Washington couldn't tell a lie, but he didn't stick to the truth in the matter of spelling.-Waterloo Courier. APPROPRIATIONS FOR RURALITES UPHELD BY HALL Farm Bureau President in Defense of Roosevelt's Judiciary Plan. "There is quite a sum of public money spent for propagation and protection of fish, game, wild birds and animals. Is not a farmer worthy of as much consideration? Farming is primarily to build a home and the home is the foundation of all free institutions," said R. M. Hall, president of the Cerro Gordo county Farm Bureau, in an interview over KGLO's North Iowa forum Thursday night. Mr. Hall spoke in justification of appropriation of public money to the Farm Bureau, answering a query by Arthur Pickford, Globe-Gazette farm editor. The Farm Bureau should not enter the commercial field nor indulge in political activities, ac- cordiog to Mr. Hall, and if it ever does, should sever its connections as agent with the agricultural department. "Criticism Personal." Turning to Roosevelt's court reorganization plan, Mr. Hall defended the president, saying most of the criticism heaped upon him was personal rather then on issues. "It is not a packed court he wants," said Mr. Hall in referring to the president, "it is a court with the minds on the present and future rather than minds thinking in past tense." "I feel that 70 is too young to retire a judge, although I might sanction 75," said Mr. Hall. "Still I believe the majority of judges should be under 70 years of age. If we want to stay in a rut, use the snme wheel horse," he continued. Tells of Danser. Mr. Hall asserted that (he greatest danger to our liberties lies in farmers getting into the habit of leaning on the government for correction of evils that could be done by personal effort. "Liberty (s retained by being vigilant. If we Dr. E. C.Martin CHIROPODIST Successor to Dr. 3. D. Rccler 316 1st. Nat Bk. Bldg.

Pointing to Denmark, Sweden and Finland as examples o f - t h e highest type of democracy, Mr. Hall stated this was accomplished by the high efficiency of farmers there who asked the government to allow themselves through cooperative efforts to reach prosperous interests. Anton Pecka Fined for Intoxication Anton Pecka, Omaha, Nebr., was fined $25 and costs Thursday by Police Judge Morris Laird on a charge of intoxication. Pecka was arrested by police at Sixth street and South Federal avenue Wednesday evening. The hearing for William M.
