MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE RedCrossQuota Upped to $59,700 BIG EMERGENCY DEMANDS MADE ON FACILITIES National Budget Raised From $180,000,000 to $200,000,000 Emergency demands on the national budget of the American Red Cross have necessitated an increase in the over-all quota set for Cerro Gordo county in the 1945 War Fund campaign, R. F. Clough, War Fund chairman, said Monday. Mr. Clough explained that sharply increased American military activities on many fronts are largely responsible for the larger budget. No additional funds are required by the local chapter for its own work, he said, but every chapter in the country is being asked to help finance the national organization's activities in the 52 nations and islands where American troops are stationed. The county's new quota is $59,700. National Bed Cross has increased its budget from $180,000,- 00D to 5200,000,000 as a result of mounting demands for Red Cross services in the European and Pacific theaters. Basil O'Connor, chairman of the national organization, said in a recent statement: "It is obvious that estimates we made last fall for our War Fund campaign in March are now inadequate. Accordingly we have revised our goal to meet this new situation. I arn confident the American public will respond generously to this emergency when the campaign opens on March 1." The 1945 Red Cross War Fund is, in many respects, the most important campaign to date, Mr. Clougrh commented. It will enable the Red Cross to stay at the side of American fighting men in all. of the expanding theaters of war, as well as to aid their families at home. "Ihe officers of the Cerro Gordo county Red Cross chapter pledge to do everything in their power to assist the county in its part in financing this war-vital service-for-victory program," he added. Methodists Taking Look Ahead Here Members of the First Methodist church will undertake a 4 year look ahead at a dinner meeting Tuesday evening at 6:30 o'clock in the social rooms of the church. While in the nature of an annual meeting with brief reports, the conference will place main emphasis upon Methodism's "Crusade for Christ," Doctor Marvin B. Kober stated. Mrs. Ira Stinson with a committee from the W. S. C. S. is in charge. Earle K. Baker, district superintendent, will discuss the - topic "Methodism Marches." "Highlights of 1944," will be presented by group of members, Ira Stinson discussing finance; Judge W. P. Butler, building project; C. O. Johnson, church school, and Mrs. H. L. Wright, woman's work. A panel consisting of F. C. Heneman, Mrs. H. W. Morgan, Erdix Swift, Mrs. W. D. Thrams, M. E. Olson, Gilbert Bovard and Dr. T. E. Davidson will discuss "First Church Marches" with emphasis on missions, educational program, stewardship and evangelism.

NEED FOR FATS NOW CRITICAL Every Housewife Urged to Save Grease household fats in every home more important now than at time since the war began. ****** quoted fats and oils gram, we'need it now," and urged every homemaker in Iowa who is not now saving fats to "start saving them today." "Our fats and oil requirements for food are fairly secure," Sheehe stated, "but there is a critical shortage of hard fats for our direct war needs and industrial requirements." Iowa housewives -- in country and city--those who have never saved up used kitchen fats and those who have stopped saving because of a false impression that no need for the salvage fats existed --should join in the nation-wide salvage program immediately, he said. The salvage kitchen fats may be stored in any type of leak- proof tin container; it makes no difference 'what kind of a can it is. If no lid is available, the housewife can cover the open container with a wax paper to keep our foreign matter when delivering the salvage to her meat market or local collector. "Every teaspoon full of salvage household fat counts," Sheehe admonished housewives. " E v e r y Iowa home should conscientiously salvage every drop. of fat. It is needed for ammunition, for medicines, for war equipment, and in our war industry at home. The very pound of fat the housewife saves may provide the ammunition or the equipment that saves the life of her own boy." OECKERlLL IS RULED INVALID Three-Fourths Estate to Surviving Mother Augusta Decker, s u r v i v i n g mother of the late Gertrude M Decker, and the sole and only heir, was decreed to be owner of % of the estate left by Miss Decker, the disposition of which was adjudged to be invalid by her will according to a ruling by Judge M' H.

Permission Granted for Big Industry Approval of an area west ol the mainline of the Chicago and North Western railroad and north 150 feet from the north line of 12th N. W. for heavy industry was given by the city council in special session Monday upon recommendation of the change bv the zoning commission following a hearing on the matter last Monday evening. An ordinance was passed upon the first reading, placing this area in the heavy industry zone, and the second and third readings were waived. A permit also was granted by the council for the International Chemical and Mineral corporation to construct a commercial chemical fertilizer plant in the area The plant will employ 25 persons regularly and up to 40 persons in ihe spring season, according to representatives of the firm. An ordinance also was passed by the council providing for the election of a police judge in Mason City. For years the city provided for the appointment of its police judge and maintained police court while the city was organized under the manager form and commission forms o£ government. Since the city will adopt 'a government prescribed by the general laws of the state April 1, 194a, the city deemed it advisable to provide for the election of a police judge. The ordinance, therefore, was passed for the nomination and election in accordance with law to take office the first Monday in April, 1945.

MASON CITY ONE OF 11 CITIES IN IOWA WITH CODE Movement Started for Uniform Constructioi) Regulations in State Mason City is one of the slate's 11 largest cities having local provisions for a building code, according to a survey just completed by the Public Safety and State Building Code committee of the Iowa Engineering Society: Only siightly more than half of the 44 Iowa cities which co-operated in the survey have local building codes to assure safe, san- itai-y and economic construction of .private or public buildings, according to Frank Kerekes, chairman. Other cities having codes are Des Moines, Davenport, Cedar Rapids, Sioux City, Waterloo, Burlington, Clinton, Council Bluffs, Dubuque and Ottumwa. The 11 cities joined 32 others reporting; to endorse a uniform state building code for Iowa, Kerekes states. Because of growing interest in such a uniform code in Iowa Kerekes says the committee last summer started the survey oE Iowa cities of more than 3,000 population. Of, the 75 cities contacted, 44 co-operated. In the survey, 3 cities of more than 10,000 population reported that they now have no building code or regulations governing or controlling private or public building construction. Only 8 of 25 cities of less than 10,000 population surveyed have a code or regulatory building provisions. Except in 19 loiva cities of more than 15,000 population where Iowa laws make setting up a building code mandatory, safety and health requirements for public buildings now are governed only by varying local requirements, Kerekes states. To assure adequate state-wide protection for their citizens, several o£ Iowa's neighboring states have established state-building codes. Wisconsin has a building code that is the law of the state. This code is set up to provide for local enforcement under the supervision of the Industrial Commission of Wisconsin. Nebraska has a state building code that is optional for its cities. Indiana recently enacted one. Kerekes says the State Building Code Central committee, organized last February and composed of 20 representatives of state,' business and professional organizations, has been studying the status of building codes in Iowa. In connection with the code survey, an analysis of building re-u- lations now in the Code of Iowa (1939) was made. Numerous conflicts, uncertainties and omissions interfering with safe, sound healthful, efficient and economic construction were in the more than 200 sections which dealt with regulation of construction, the committee found. Ration Rules Cover Farm Killed Meat ot wartime rationing which affect meat obtained from any other le- giUmate source, it is pointed out oy the office of price administration. However, farm families who raise animals for their own use f£ TM' r , cq " ired to g^e up points tor meat from these animals if home or custom slaughtered Farm lamilies may also borrow and lend meat to each other without exchanging points, but when rationed cuts of home or custom slaughtered meats are sold or given away, red points must be collected by the farmer and turned into the local war price and rationing board. All farmers who sell rationed meat may get from their war price and rationing board the new of- ftcial tabJe of point values The smaller cuts are listed on the consumer table. Large cuts or carcasses-such as a quarter of beef half of a hog, or a whole carcass --are listed on the trade point value table. Both tables are- printed on the same sheet. Families buying meat from a farmer may use as many as 18 red stamps from each book in advance of the general validation dates. This gives the consumer 180 extra points per book for buying farm meat in large quantities to store for future use.
