P. Woodruff of the railroad commission at the Hotel Hanford Monday and made applica- ,tlon for a certificate of public convenience and "necessity for the hauling of freight frojn Mason City to Plymouth. Mr. Woodruff took the matter under advisement and said ,he would'make his decision.later. The application was made, on the grounds that the. railroads did not urnish adequate' service. The ..only objector was the Rock Island rail- pad, which contended it had daily service to a point near Plymouth. To evidence, however,- was offered )y the objector. Several Mason" City wholesalers and Plymouth merchants testified in behalf of Mr. Holcumb, who was represented at the hearing by Attorney L. R. Boomhower. 30,OlTfOENTER MUSIC CONTESTS 408 Schools Will Compete at 39 Centers; Finals to Be in May. ROYAL ADMIRAL Resplendent in the brilliant uniform of a British admiral, King George V. of England is shown in the first official photo made since his rec'ent illness. It is an English tradition that the monarch hold 'the rank of honorary admiral of the navy and field marshal of 'the army. money may he judged from a list of contracts, -between/the 'government and a typical baker's dozen of American shipping companies, which Senator Kennth McKeUar of Tennessee made a part of the record of congressional proceedings last June, shown in the accompanying box. *,. *, * PERHAPS the $5,495,949 difference i between what the mails would have cost on a strictly businesslike basis acd what the ^government actually contracted to pay for theni, was judiciously devoted to the upbuilding of the American merchant marine, altho John Nicolson, long connected with the U. S shipping hoard, who dug up Senator McKellar's figures for him does say: "It is difficult to treat scriousls a contention that a subsidy to offset operating differentials shouk not only amortize the original in vestment but should yield to the subsidized line twice or thrice tha investment. Such a contribution i not a subsidy; it is a gift." At any rate, according to Con gressman Kelly, it is not an.expen diture in- the postoffice depart ment's interest and he does no propose to have it, or similar en couragement given to aviation counted against' the mail service Air mail subventions, to be sure. re not so easy to estimate accur- tely, because there is no Interna- ional Postal union average to corn- are them with, .but it generally is ecognized that they are considerable. V * * * [N ANY matter connected with his favorite service the Pennsylvania congressman : is not to he trifled with, either. Not satisfied with merely protesting against the saddling of thJ wstoffice with the cost of "projects aot justly chargeable to it," he got a law.passed last year classifying such items under a separate heading Thus he is officially as well as theoretically correct in disputing the 5100,000,000 deficit claim, and placing the amount at only $5S,- 000,000. Well, even §58,000,000 is a tidy sum. "Yes" a g r e e s Congressman Kelly, "but let us keep one great institution as the embodiment of another motive than financial gain --the motive of co-operative .service Here is no business to show a favorable 'balance or be branded as a failure. Here is a service to be extended to the utmost, whether the extensions show a money loss or a money profit. That service is one of the birthrights of every American and we should not curtail it." BOAT BILL NOW BEFORE SENATE Licensing of Pilots in Iowa Considered in Measure by Committee. DBS MOINES, March 25. Seeking to prevent a repetition of the 1929 Lake Okoboji boat disaster in which nine lives were lost the-senate conservation committee has introduced a bill providing for licensing boats and pilots on Iowa waters. "* Motor boats would not be al lowed to be operated faster than 15 miles an hour between sunse and sunrise. The bill includes a draft of rules for right of way, a set of signals and provisions fo certain types of lights. All waters within the state a bor MARCH 25 ders would be affected.'Boats oper- · ited for hire would be .required ^to mv' a fee of from-§1 to 525, y 1 ^ fi y for yivate boats. Public craft would be required to have ,air tanks and exhaust mufflers. An amendment to the fish and game commission bill uniting' that department with the , state board of conservation has been offered by Senators C. G. Cole of T De aware county, E. R. Hicklin of Louisa, A. · V. Blackford of Van Buren, C. L. Rigby of Cedar and H. C. White of Benton. The departments would be combined under a commission -o£ six members appointed after the present conservation board members complete their .terms. Four divisions would have charge, respectively, of fishing and stream pollution, hunting and trapping, parks and playgrounds and the force ot deputy, wardens.

Then what? . "\Vhy," answers Congressman Kelly promptly, "conducted as a private .business, a great many of ie postoffice's conveniences .and ervices would be discontinued immediately. Rural free delivery, with all its value but with its $50,000,100 annual loss, would be first to Co. The only test of each service would be, "Does it pay?' If not, It would be sunk without a trace. ' "I favor the highest postal efficiency but there ia a vast difference between efficient service and effL- cient money-making. If private owners took over the postal service and rebuilt it on a profit basis, they would reduce services and increase charges. The government's duty i to improve service and lowe charges as far as possible." - * » *' . E VEN so, adds the Pennsylvania the postoffice deficit is no nearly as large as is represented. As stated by critics, it pow ap proximates a annual $100,000 000. "The a c t u a 1930 f i g u r e s a y s Congressman. Kelly, Vis about $58,000,000.
