"One of the unsolved problems of man is how to get enough kick out of life to make it worth the living" declared Dr. F. B. Knight, professor of education at the University of Iowa, in speaking on the subject of "Can One Be Happy in Troublesome Times," before a well filled auditorium at the high school Saturday evening. "I don't know how deeply in 1 trouble we are," said Dr. Knight, "but it is a troubled world we are living in. There are thousands of college graduates with nothing to do but live at home." War With Self. Dr. Knight said that happiness is never inherited by a person and a person never has happiness willed to him. He enlarged on several conditions which increase happiness, outstanding of which was to come to terms with oneself. "So many are at war with themselves and it is not easy to come to terms. Life is a battle, with occasional truces but no armistices and the sooner we learn to live in a real world rather than a fanciful one, the better off we will be. Persons should come to terms with themselves before reaching the first grade and should continue to live that way on through maturity," said Dr. Knight. Modesty in the extreme, Dr. Knight explained, is a left handed conceit. "A certain amount of bragging is needed for success," said Dr. Knight, "for we profit by our successes and not our failures. We are all of us a little sick as far as our' inner life is concerned." This Dr. Knight explained as a sickness of person rather than body. Persons should have self knowledge to the extent that they can be honest with themselves.- Build Up Strong Points. The strong points of the. individual should be played up but these those making loans from local associations wer.e also among the topics of discussion. The cost of this insurance would not be more than 84 cents a $100 a year, it was pointed out. 38 Formed In Year. Thirty-eight credit unions have been organized in Iowa the past year, bringing the total to 190, officers reported. The Sioux City meeting was attended by 300 members. Mason City at present has eight active associations, as follows: J. E. Decker and Sons, Postoffice, Hotel Hanford, Globe-Gazette, Holy Family parish, Standard Oil company, People's Gas and Electric company and city employes. PRINTER WORKING ON 'BABY EDITION'HAS AN 'ADDITION'OF HIS OWN The Globe-Gazette's annual "Baby Edition" is to be printed Tuesday. One.of the printers who has given a great deal of time to that edition is Clifford Eggert, 607 Third street northeast. Monday's hospital news chronicle the birth of a baby boy to ITr. and Mrs, Eggert. He arrived on the scene Saturday, in time to inspect this special edition. HAGERMAN SALES COMPANYFORMED Takes Place of Hagerman- Moersch With Moersch Withdrawing. The Hagerman Sales company, of which A. C. Hagerman is the owner, takes over the operation of the business operated by Hagennan- Moersch company It was announced Monday. The partnership, Hagerman- Moersch company, has been dissolved, with W. J. Moersch withdrawing from all participation in the affairs of the concern. In communications to customers and jobbers with whom the concern is doing business, Mr. Hagerman stated his company assumes all indebtedness, obligations and contracts regularly entered on the books of the Hagerman-Moersch company up to April 24, the date of the dissolution. The Hagerman Sales company, which does a wholesale feed and flour business, covers a territory reaching from Spencer east to the Mississippi river, having five salesmen and a fleet of trucks. The concern has been in operation 11 years. give. Teaching is the passing 1 of energy from one to the other. In the poor schoolroom there is no contact between the teacher and the schoolroom. "All of us are two persons. The one craves to project itself on to the world. The alternate cell craves to ba led and to be identified with the world. The key to happiness is a balance between these two natures. If one leaves the world and flies into oneself let him do it at his own risk. If you want to be happy live In the world. Don't live in a world of dignitaries! You belong to the world, feel at home. People Too Sensitive. "We are all pron« to be too sensitive and are drunkards for self punishment. Life is such that we are bound to get a lot of bruises, so the thing to do is toughen up. Good schools should tan the skins of children for the knocks of life. Don't fly into fantasy to avoid trouble. Too much fantasy is worse than the aspirin habit. Alcohol is the desensitizer par excellence and is the most highly habit forming invention of man." Dr. Knight presented four ways for gaining happiness: Drain off tension through action, build cal- louses about yourself, tan your skins (the best way of which is to make friends) and prepare for the worst and nothing can surprise you. "Energy commands the world but most of us are working on an overloaded schedule. Exhaustion is a frightful handicap, yet man is the only beast who works all day and worries all night. In modern life we are geared up to charge often and hard. We are attempting to live a lion's life with a cow's body. Energy commands the world but the man without energy cannot command even himself." Sheriff Hanson Home After Probe in Dakota GARNER, April 30.--Sheriff E. P, Hanson returned Friday night from Parker, S. Dak., where he Invetigat- ed the theft of the car belonging to August Schnatu that was taken from his garage in Britt the night o April 20.

Mr Schnath is in possession of his 1932 Rockne coupe that was not dam aged. PRODUCE OUTPUT Some Increase in Demand. Above That of Last Year Now Evident. Approximately 100 men will re- urn to their jobs in the Mason City Brick and Tile company plant Tuesday, it was announced Monday by 'rank J. Hanlon, president. With new machinery installed for :he making of an improved product and demand, while not large, considerably above that of last year, the outlook appears better than a year ago, according to Mr. Hanlon. Both No. 7, the central grinding lant, and No. 4 will go into opera- ion with the resumption of activi- ies. The plants will start on common brick and then go into the manufactre of various types of tile and other products. The spurt in demand that is now being felt is not confined to any ona iroduct, but to all the clay goods nade in the plants, according to the officers of the company, who point out that the length of the run now opening will, of course, depend on .he demand. During the shutdown period research work has been carried on in an effort to further improve the products. Indications are the plants will turn out the best clay goods ever made in Mason City when the run gets under way.
