Beulah Randolph, stenog at the city hall, and John H. McEwen, city clerk, have worked up a mild rivalry as to the accuracy of their respective calendars for prophesying weather.

Temperatures will be normal but rainfall will be below normal, except in the gulf states. According to the calendars a period of fair and pleasant weather lasting since Sunday was to end Friday. It is understood that a 'fortune of revenue stamps was required in the transfer of the property of the Northwestern States Portland Cement company from the old West Virginia to the new Iowa corporation. POLICE CHIEF HAS HIS TROUBLES Believe it or not, one of the most rexing nroblems the police chief as to contend with is that of the ard table establishments. He is be- ng besieged continually by housewives who complain about their usbands remaining away from ome, gambling money away at ards. Many investigations reveal the husband doesn't even play ards, but just naturally prefers to e most anywhere else than home, vhatever the reason is. , Dr. 1. E. Stlnehart announces he is going to announce his candidacy soon on the "slow" ticket under which no one will be allowed to drive automobiles more than 25 miles an hour and that within two years all cars must be regeared so It is impossible to bring the speed over 49 miles an hour.

TOO GOOD TO BE REAL It was in a Mason City department store that a visiting representative of a cosmetics company stood, elbows on the counter, and gazed into space. Her hair, platinum, was slick to her head and her face was made up on the style of those egg-like looking models in store windows. A customer came up and gazed at the triumph of. modern make-up for a short time Finally the triumph said, "Was' there something?" The customer collapsed. She had thought she was looking at something completely artificial. Last year it was depression flowers. This year it's tin can trees. Have you cut your fingers on one yet? It's strange how insignificant things in themselves often develop into troublesome eruptions, as witness the latest flareup in the city council, all over the question of granting a continuation of a beer permit. Perhaps a little history of the Star Chamber, as it originated in England, might not be amiss since that form of legislation has become a part of the city government. The name is said to have been taken from a room in Westminister abbey, which was decorated with stars. In this room the king's privy council met in secret sessions to adjudicate legal matters. One Mason Cityan inquired If the term as applied here didn't mean that most any of the council members are likely to see stars when the council is in session. McKinley Center Has Final Session; Crowd Average 700 in Year The final meeting of the McKinley school community center was held Friday night at the Y. M. C. A.

FRAZER Fifteen years' experience in various financial institutions--including service with a Minneapolis banking firm, a private discounting corpora- ton, the Minnesota state banking department and an insurance company--serve to qualify William T. Frazer for his position as secretary- treasurer of recently organized Mason City Production Credit association. Although Frazer came here from Davenport he is no stranger in North Iowa. He was born in Osage some 38 years ago and spent the early years of his life there. His family moved to Minneapolis when he was in his early teens, and Frazer accompanied them, completing high school and business college courses there'. Later he took some work in the University of Minnesota. Then came the war; Frazer enlisted in the navy in 1917, serving aboard destroyers until January, 1919, when he received his honorable discharge with the rank of chief quartermaster. Returning to Minneapolis he found an opening in the banking firm of Hazlett and company and was associated with this concern for a period of some seven years. In 1926 he resigned his position as cashier there to'organize and manage a private company similar in nature to the local production association. Frazer formed this private discounting corporation with headquarters at Herman, Minn., northwest of Minneapolis, but after two years there took a position with the banking department of that state. In 1930 he left the state job to accept a position as district supervisor of loan agents for a life insurance company in Illinois and Iowa with headquarters at Davenport. ·He established'a home in that city, and his family, composed of Mrs. Frazer and two sons, Bill, 7, and Bob, 5, will remain there until June to allow the boys to complete their school term without interruption. The Mason City association is made up of Winnebago, Worth, Mitchell, Hancock, Cerro Gordo and Floyd counties. Maude Harris Teaches "Choric Speech" Class Former Resident of* Rockwell in New Choral Work. Word has been received here that a new and fascinating phase of public speaking, "choric speech," has been introduced at the Salem Teachers' college, Salem, Mass., by the junior high school sophomore class under the direction of Miss Maude Harris of the literature department. Miss Harris was born and reared at Rockwell, where she graduated from the public school. For several years she taught in the high school there, and since then she has held a number of outstanding positions as an instructor. In recent years interested groups of individuals have been inquiring into the meaning of choric speech, or choral, verse speaking, as it is psrhaps more often designated. As an organized vocal activity it dates from early Greek drama. Five hundred years before the birth of Christ, Greek drama in its first stage consisted of choral odes chanted with rhythmic body movement. New in United States. Several books on methods of teaching choric speech have been written in England. The only bool: on the subject in .our country is "The Teaching of Choric Speech," by Elizabeth Keppie. While practically new in the United States, it has been well received and extension and summer courses are offered by the University of California and other colleges. Miss Harris of the Salem Teachers' college became interested in it while pursuing such a course at Oxford university and her study was the initial impatus of the program presented at the college where she is now teaching. Furthering New Form. Persons who have been responsible for the furthering of choric speech as a recreative art are John Masefield, poet-laureate of England; William Butler Yeats, famous Irish poet; Dr. Gordon Bottomley. who has lately written choric dramas: and Marjorie Gullan of Glasgow and London, author of several books on the subject. The program which was presented recently at the Salem Teachers' college was given by the girls of the junior high sophomore class who were coached by Miss Harris. Interpretations were given of A. A. Milne's poem, "The King's Breakfast;" "Hynd Horn," a simple ballad of the refrain type; Vachel Lindsay's "Congo;" "Nightingales" by Robert Bridges; and "Bells" by Edgar Allan Poe.
