APRIL 28 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE SEVEN AliiieO'pipe Stick to the Pipe--Let the Smoke Blon Where It Will By T. PIPE The Merry (Maybe) Month of May In the merry month of May, All our ilia will pass away; All our troubles will decrease, And our frets and worries cease: Maybe. In the merry month of May, Happy days will come to stay: And we all will joyful be, In a new prosperity: Maybe, P I-l P E Oh the merry month of May, Brings good fortune so they say; So throughout the month we'll be, Filled with endless ecstasy: Maybe. P l T p E May has ever been considered one of the good luck months of the year. Which it can jolly well live up to .its reputation this year and not cause any very great disturbance among the populace. A flock of prosperity at this time is something that can be anticipated with about as little concern as anything of which we have any knowledge just at present. P 1 1 P E Iowa to Join In IT. S. War to End Crime. -- Headlines. But really now, don't you know, there must be some mistake. The return ot booze eliminated all crime. P l T p E When booze returns, so we were told, All trace of crime will pass away; Now booze is here and yet we read, Of bigger, better crimes each day. P I l p E When, and if, the winds of the spring of '34 ever cease to blow with BO much vehemence, the housewives of our land will exhibit considerable elation. The Missus says she has swept at least three acres of dirt out of the house this spring. And when we reminded her that three acres was a lot of dirt she replied that she was well aware of the fact. P I ip E the. wind It blew a flock of dirt, Into the sitting room; The irate housewife.In her wrath, Did chase it with a broom. P I 1 P E State Representative Dean is quoted as saying he believes in taxing the people according to their ability to pay. The last (if it wasn't it should be) session of the state legislature did all of that In fact it rather over reached itself a. bit. It taxed, the people for_ all, or more than, their ability to pay. P I 1 P E For the benefit of those who have been wondering what Mr. Boomhower said as he stood admiring the brickbats along the edge of the sidewalk aa reported in this column last week, we will advise as follows: What he really said was, "What a wonderful place this would be to hold an Irish picnic." Not bad for a hardwareman at that, eh? P I I P E And if the justly famous north western part of these here United States of America doesn't get an abundance of moisture in the near future, Henry Wallace can jolly well quit worrying about an overproduction and start wondering where the people are going to get something to eat. P 11 P E Another thing this country needs in addition to a good . soaking rain, is rubber tired sidewalks so that people can walk on them and not hurt their leet. P I P E "Excuse me sir," the man did say, . "For walking on your lawn; But these are much the hardest walks, That ever I walked on. That ever I walked on, sir, That ever I walked on." - · Oh these are much the hardest · : walks, That ever I walked on." i ' P I J-.P E ' Onr campaign against non-Illuminated street lights Is beginning to bear fruit. The street light at Qnincy and Twelfth street N. W. was only extremely dark for three consecutive nights when it failed to perform as advertised April 20, whereas before we began our campaign, this light usually remained extinct for at least six nights ea«h time it burned out. P l i p E In advocating the cardinal as the monarch of northern Iowa's bird- land, Mr. Eye isn't so hot. In the first place, we doubt if there are 25 persons in Mason City who have ever seen a free, live cardinal. We also doubt if there has been 25 free, live cardinals in Mason City in the past 25 yeacs. If it is a bird that MASON CITY IN LEAD IN CONTEST Takes First in Opening Two Events of Shorthand Competition. Mason City was first in both the novice shorthand and the amateur shorthand events which opened the district commercial competition al the high school here Saturday. In the novice section Lake Mills was second and Britt third while in the amateur division Britt was second and Lake Mills third.

Eva Kitsis, Helen Eichmeier and Anita Herman represented M. C. H. S. on the amateur shorthand team. In novice shorthand Jean Pockens, Ann AHos and Mildred Van Every were the Mason City representatives. Lester Milligan, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, dictated to the shorthand contestants. The towns and schools participating in the contest were: St. Joseph high school, Mason City; Northwod, Lake Mills. Mason City. Britt, Wesley, Grafton and Rock Falls. The teams from Mason City were chosen by the contest method. A local contest was held April 21 and two teams of three members each were chosen in each event. A contest was held throughout the week and the results of these decided the teams that were chosen to represent M. C. H. S. in each division in the contest. Heard at Decorah. LYLE, Minn.--The Rev. and Mrs. O. M. Langehough, Mrs. Lewis Salso and Miss Harriet Larson, returned home from Decorah where the Rev. Langehough and the women were heard over radio station KGCA. Mr. Langehough spoke to the students at Decorah college at their chapel service. coming day with song. It hops over our lawns In search of the elusive worm and Insect and Is with us as we work in the garden. It is a friendly, cheerful bird nor will Mr. Eye, though he frantically pound Ms typewriter into the wee, small hours of the well known night, be able to dethrone H from its justly occupied place at the head of the bird kingdom. Democratic Club to Hold Meeting Here on Tuesday Evening The Mason City unit of the Young Democratic club will hold a city meeting Tuesday evening at the headquarters in the Luke Miller- Sterling building. The business meeting will be called to order at 7:30 o'clock, according to Abbott Wolf, club president. Varied entertainment is being planned for the evening, following a business meeting. After a contest between two local men's staging quartets, there will be a card party, with prizes to be awarded to the winners. Refreshments will be served. All county members have been urged to attend the meeting, which, together with the card party, is open to the public. ADDITIONAL SCHOOL NEWS KNIGHT SPEAKER AT INSTITUTE Tells Teachers That Man Is Feeling Rather Than Reasoning Being. Man is esentially an unreasonable creature, Dr. F. B. Knight, professor of education at the University of Iowa, declared at a county teachers' institute held at the high school auditorium Saturday after- icon. Several hundred teachers, including most of the Mason City teaching staff, were in attendance. "Man is more a feeling creature :han he is a reasonable creature," Doctor Knight, who was scheduled to address a public meeting at 8 o'clock Saturday evening, told his listeners. "The human mind, however, is made as it is and we as teachers should respect and be well informed on its functions and the way it earns," he added. There is no difference in the way children learn, according to Dr. vnight, who maintained all children iollowed a general rule in learning. "There is no magic way of imparting learning-," he said, pointing lut that while the same general rule s followed in general each child has ts individual differences which must be met in the teaching profession. Mrs. Schollian Deputy. CHAFIN--Mrs. Kenneth Schol- ian has been appointed deputy for he local postofflce, in charge of Miss Helen Randolph, to succeed iliss Eleanor Thines, who has reigned to attend business college at Des Moines. "Mother's Got Moths," Youngster's Explanation to Librarian Among Deluge of Inquiries at Local Library. acs. stays all winter that he wants, why doesn't he choose an English sparrow or a democrat Like the poor, they are always with us. Or if it is mere beauty, he might pick the crow or the dandelion. Surely the lily in all its beauty is not arrayed as one of these. T . P 1 i P E . After all, it is the friendliness of the robin that endears It to us. It brings to onr winter weary hearts the first faint breath of another spring. It nests in the trees about our dwellings and merrily greets the Three-thirty in the afternoon an the first little group from Centra school goes dashing up the steps a the library. School Is out and boy and girls begin to arrive for books Through the big bronze door they pour--well dressed, poorly clad, big, little, some shy, a few boisterous, but always with an as sured air that they will be welcome They swarm about the loan desk downstairs; they wait to hav books checked at the broad, hos pitable desk in the children's room they drop into chairs at- their own low tables set apart for them and lose themselves in books and mag azlnes chosen especially with their Interests in mind. A 12 year old boy with roller skates under his arm asks rather breathlessly: "Have you a book for my mother? She's got moths! And something that tells whether a bull dog is better than an Airedale--that's for me 'cause dad Is going to gel me a dog, and say, how can I fine out the name of the king on this postage stamp? Oh, yes, and my teacher wanted me to get a book about Daniel Boone, the scout in Kentucky, you know." She Enjoys It. Miss Alma Davis, children's librarian, is not overwhelmed even by the "moth eaten mother," She has pep and patience and enjoys ministering to the insatiable curiosity of young Americans. She fills the youngster's arms with books and turns to receive an avalanche of questions from those next in line: "I want a fairy story--" · '1 want a book on bird houses--" "I want some marionette patterns--" "I want a blue print of an airplane model--" "I want a cowboy story--" "Gimme a.mystery story." "Let me look through the Boy Scout pamphlets." Children book borrowers consti tute one-third of ail the patrons of the Mason City public library, ac cording to Miss Alma Davis, the children's librarian, who says: "In the year just past, Mason Cit;- children have borrowed 157,931 books and the effect of the lean years in library appropriations is beginning to tell. Children's books are used so hard and so constantly ·that many of them actually fall apart. And when they cannot be replaced, the boys and girls will naturally tend to turn to the adult collection where the lure of the mystery story and the sophisticated novel draws like a magnet." Classics Popular. That the old-time favorites among children's classics are still popular when available is evidenced in the · "actions of children borrowers. These books are called for again and again: Louisa M. Alcott books. "Alice in Wonderland." "The Lone Eagle." "Tom E~vyer" and "Huckleberry Finn." "Boy's Book of Verse." "Grimm's Fairy Tales." "Poems o£ Action." The value of establishing early in life habits of good reading which will make citizens discriminating in the use of the adult library is set forth by one 12-year-old reader in these words: Some reasons why I like to "JULIUS CAESAR" DRAMATIZED BY ENGLISH CLASSE Continued from School Fue) Cassius was "licked" by Brutu Robert Thome said, "It had mor sense than other plays I've stud led." In the assassination scene Marti Yoseloff, in the role of Mark An tony, makes peace with the con splrators, but when left alone wit the dead, apologizes for the com pact he has sealed by shaking tliei bloody hands. In the funeral scene Walte Sweet, in the role of Marcus Brutu. first wins the citizens to his side but is outwitted later by the cleve Yoseloff who in the showing o Caesar's mantle that he wore on th day he was killed, moves the cit sens to tears. In the showing o the corpse, marred as it was b traitors, and in the reading of th will, moves them to revenge. A third scene that was very pop ular with the freshmen proved t be the auarrel scene in Brutus' ten where Brutus condemns Cansius fo having taken bribes of the Sardians This scene was memorized by var: ous students who are preparing fo contest readings as a grand "finale of this drama--girls versus boys Girls who will participate are Opal Hammond, Francis Emmert, Es telle Schneider, in the role of Bru tus, versus Millie Negomir, Juanit Richmond and Jane Hilton, in th role of Cassius. The winners of th girls' reading will compete apains the boys. Walter Sweet as Brutu and Martin Yoseloff as Cassius. Served as Challenge. Written assignments have servei aa a real challenge to the freshmon inasmuch as they have had to pre pare 25 thought questions on eaci of the five acts and to comtxis their first real characterization setting forth the good and bac qualities of Mark Antony and Ju lius Caesar, Octsvius Caesar,- Cas sius and Brutus. Perhaps the most thrilling mo ments for the students were to 9e Caesar stabbed, Pindarus, the bond ed slave, compelled to stab Cassius Titinlus who failed to return "even with a thought" kill himself with Cassius' sword, the brave young Cate rush into the jaws of death so as to inspire the soldiers of Brutus his brother-in-law, and the courageous Brutus run upon his sword which was held by Strato rather than be taken a captive am chained to the chariot wheels of Antony and Octavius. A reading of "Antony and Cleopatra" in story form by Stoke; gave the students a clear cut picture of weak Antony, in his later life. The freshmen now are prepar ing the 'scenes of Midsumme Night's Dream and a careful read ing of Scott's Lady of the Lake the last six weeks. OFFICE CAT ON SPRING FEVER read. I get lots of pleasure out of it. I like to read books about things I have not heard before. You learc something out of It, something worth knowing. Then when you grow up you won't be a dummy." One boy who grew up to be a tall, unassuming young man attracted attention a few years ago when he spent much time in the San Diego public library lost apparently in some problem of mathematics that had to do with a large globe in a corner of the reading room which he studied continuously. A few weeks later he set his big silver airplane down in France after a solo trans-Atlantic flight. The young man was Charles Augustus Lindbergh. Led to Progress. Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Luther. Burbanlc, Orvllle and Wilbur Wright, Andrew Carnegie-these are but a few of a long list of names of boys whose quest for knowledge through books and libraries led to notable contributions to world progress. "Mason City children perhaps take library books for granted," says Miss Davis. "They do not realize that there are 15,000,000 children in our country who are still without the privilege of public library service." Christopher Morley tells how one night he took a stroll and came on an old tangle of forlorn brick alleys that lie off one of the oldest squares in Philadelphia. In a clean narrow byway, not more than 10 :eet wide on a clean little doorstep he found a small girl reading-. She was about nine years old and the noisy games about in the street did not distract her. Beading "A Story." Mr. Morley says he can never see anyone reading a book without find- ng out by fair means or foul what t is. When he asked the child she responded not at all abashed, "A story," and held the book for him o see. In the soiled little book was a abel from the public library and Mr. Morley has an essay in which he ruminates on how nothing could ever repay the people who founded and conducted that library for the act that here in a poor little street n the heat and strident clamor of a ity, a child had escaped from the age and was out in the great open paces of fairyland. Winds blowing, buds 1'-'-sting on trees, annual trip to Iowa City for musicans, clean-up contest, class fights, tug-of-war, senior play, junior-senior banquet, last t- nute cramming so as to be able to pass exams tell students spring-fever has attacked them. If only students could be given a serum , ! or this dread disease, what a relief it would be and espec'ally for those teachers who are immune from it! People with spring fever should b equarantined in one classroom for sevc.al days where the desks are comfortable for sleeping and, if necessary, all floors of the high school should be turned over for this fine relief work. However, as we know this can't C'me to. pass, why not make the best of it and help one another keep awake or at least keep from snoring during class time? --H. D. F. Art Classes Working on Sets for Senior Play 'Pomander Walk' Mrs. Harriett Crabb, art supervisor of the high school, assisted by her scenic artists, Ken Heimendinger, Fred Rose, John Swaroff, Mike Martin and Lloyd Skarlis have been faithfully working for the past week, not only after school, but during art i -Tic" 3 -, or the magnificent set for the senior class drama, "Pomander Walk," to be presented May 11 in the high school auditorium. "The scenery v/as a big undertaking but the boys have v/orked faithfully and the task has been completed." "It meant ' heap' of wor;; but it required no knowledge of art," said Mrs. Crabb. The color has been blended so nicely, that the finished set is going to be a most beautiful display of "the five little old-fashioned cottages on the river-bank,."
