CLARKS RETURN FROM CRUISE TO CHINA AND JAJAN Saw Inauguration of Quezon in Philippines, Chinese Demonstration Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Clark have returned to Mason City after six months of travel which took them to Japan. China and the Philippine islands, as well as southern California. For Mr. Clark it was a dream come true. It was a boyhood ambition someday to board a tramp steamer and move from port to port without schedule or design. "One day." said the local man, "I met up with an old sea captain and told him of my boyhood dream." "And why don't you make it come true?" the old mariner came back. "While the day of the tramp steamer is over, you could board a merchant ship and enjoy almost the same kind of life." Boarded Danish Vessel. A few days later Mr. and Mrs. Clark had engaged reservations on the Anna Maersk, a Danish vessel 460 feet long and were headed west at leisurely speed. Each crossing required about three weeks. Except for a severe typhoon in the south China sea, when everything movable on the ."hip had to be tied down, the passage both ways was without untoward incident. About forty-five clays were spent in China, twenty days in Japan and two weeks in the Philippines. The start from Sam Pedro, the Los Angeles harbor, was on Nov. 15 and the return to America, at the same port, was on Feb.-1. A high spot of the stay in the Philippines was the inauguration of Manuel Quezon as president of the islands. Mr. and Mrs. Clark watched the ceremonial before one of the large government buildings. It was participated in by 132 Americans- men, women and children--whose voyage had been financed by the island government. Wondered About Nye. The delegation was headed by Vice President Garner and included Senator Nye of North Dakota. Mr. Clark expressed just a little surprise that one like Senator Nye whose business in the senate has been^ investigating the illegal expenditures of government money, should have been included in such a questionable mission. Serious doubts whether the Filipinos are ready for self-govern- n-.ent was expressed by the former state insurance commissioner. The growing influx of Japanese has given rise to some fear that an eventual seizure by Japan lies ahead. "The islanders," he said, "are all confident that United States would come to their rescue in such an event. But I tried to disabuse their minds of such a thought. Their attitude toward Us during the time the islands were an American dependency would invite no such course as that." Gave Demonstration. At Canton, in southern China, the Clarks stood by one day as students of high school age demonstrated against the Japanese enroachment on Chinese domain. Theij- indignation was expressed in banners and in the shouts of the 3,000 marchers. "It's been a never to be forgotten six months." said the local man. "Now I'm ready to get to work. Mason City is going to be home for me from now on. And it looks pretty good too." Dynamite Driver Fined for Speeding--Judge Also Suggests School Lloyd Pederson, 1301 South Federal avenue, was fined $5 and costs Tuesday by Police Judge Morris Laird on a charge of speeding. Pederson was arrested on Crescent drive Friday afternoon. Attendance at one session at traffic school was added when the judge learned that Lloyd was the driver of a dynamite truck owned by S R. Bowen. Waudby, Aplington Civil War Vet, Dies APLINGTON, (JPt--Dr. T. P, Waudby, 84, veterinarian and only surviving Civil war veteran of this community, died Monday evening at hia home of pneumonia, following a long period of frail health. D. M.
