Hurt, national director of the reading program, Boy Scouts of America, will be the principal speaker at the 25th annual meeting of the Winnebago council, Boy Scouts of America, Thursday at the Hotel Hanford in Mason City. Dr. Hurt has given long service to the Boy Scout movement as a scoutmaster, member of Boy Scout local councils, scout commissioner, was for a time scout executive at Chicago and also a national.field scout commissioner.

In 1927 under a grant from the Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial, he began a 3 year research in the fields of character development and boy characteristics, supplementing investigations a n d earlier research by himself and others and from which the new cub program was developed. The research was conducted not only in the United States but also, in 3 European countries by consultation with their 275 leading boy technicians. An even greater number of American technicians was consulted. During the early years of the cub program. Dr. Hurt gave supervision to the administration of the cubbing program. He also was engaged in the development Of plans for a senior or older boy program, also included within the research plan under the Rockefeller grant.

Knudson from this senatorial district. "Instead we favor that those sane be returned to the hospitals for the insane patients in state institutions for the mentally incompetent and in- co'unty .- where such an institution is available to the patients and where their removal is for the best interests of the patients as provided in section 3527 of the 1939 code of Iowa as amended by chapter 137 of the acts of the 50th general assembly of Iowa," the resolution stated. The resolution, signed by Foreman A. M. Dougan, was adopted by the grand jury, following an inspection of the Cerro Gordo cpunty home. The resolution pointed out that "plans are now being developed for submission to the 51st session of the general assembly of loAa requesting large .appropriation to the state board of control for the purpose of enlarging our present state institutions caring for insane and mentally incompetent patients for the construction of new institutions." "Said proposal is based upon the proposition that our present state institutions are overcrowded and their present facilities overtaxed," the resolutions continued. "We believe that chronic insane ana mental patients can best be cared for and more ^economically cared for in county hospitals for the insane In those counties having such an institution and thereby relieve the congested condition in state institutions." The jurors favored "ordinary and necessary repairs" for the state institutions for the mentally incompetent and the insane and that adequate appropriations be made therefore. ' , "We favor the construction of county hospitals for the insane in those counties which do not now have such an institution and the enlargement of present county institutions now caring for these patients," the resolution stated. "We believe local care and supervision of mentally incompetent anfl chronicaly insane persons in county hospitals to be more economical to the taxpayers anS of greater benefit to the patients." The average weekly cost of caring for patients in county homes throughout the state is $2.32. Patients in state institutions cost the respective counties S2.74 a "week. Additional expenses borne by the state brings the total cost a week close to the SU mark, it was pointed out to the grand jurors. , ' Even more important than the saving in money by having patients in county homes is the fact that they will be near their relatives and friends and can be given more personal care. Movies Planned for Union Farm Bureau - , The Union township Farm Bureau meets at the Lakeside church Wednesday evening at 8 o'clock Marion Olson of the County Farm Bureau office, will show movies that correlate to the program which will be presented.

' Â·*Â·*Â»"*Â» "The situation facing all of us in every rationing program todav is more serious than at any lime since the war started," Washington OPA officials claim. "All rationed commodities are scarce and the problem is to make them stretch*to cover many essential needs of wartime production and wartime living. The armed forces will need greater quantities 6Â£ many items --canned food, meat and sugar, oil, gasoline and tires, rubber boots and shoes, virtually everything that is rationed. Increased allotments for the military mean smaller rations for civilians." Processed Foods: Civilian supplies -from the 1944-45 pack will be the lowest in 4 years. While total production reached a record high, civilians will receive only 2-3 as much commercially-packed goods as in 1941. The armed forces, in order to feed 5,000,000 men overseas, will take 41 per cent of this year's pack. It is estimated that unrestricted sales would exhaust stocks of most canned goods by March or April, with no replacement until July or August. Meat: Home-front consumption will be less. The country is facing possible acute shortages unless distribution and consumption are controlled. It has been estimated that without restrictions, people would try to buy almost 1/3 again as much as will be available. Sugar: Civilians will get less in '45--78 pounds per person on the average for all baking, candy, restaurants, soft drinks, as well as for home canning.. That is 10 pounds less than last year, 25 pounds less than '41. Reasons working inventories are so low as to endanger adequate distribution; military requirements will be greater this year; production cannot be increased because of transport and manpower shortages. Butter: Average amount available at retail lor each American in 1945--7 pounds, % pound a person a month. Production is down and inventories are too small to provide even distribution. More milk is being consumed as fluid. More milk is going into condensed and dried mjlk and into cheese. Military requirements are up. Gasoline: Passenger car owners \vill continue to absorb most of the cut in civilian gasoline supplies There will be less available for rationing during the first 3 months of '45 than in the last 3 months of '44. With only 60 per cent of gasoline produced going to civilians, the average car owner gets little more than a third of what he used before the war. Fuel Oil: The situation Is as critical now as during the original shortage period in the winter of 1342-43. There is enough to keep houses warm, not enough to keep them hot. Lack of transportation and early cold weather account for present shortages. Tires: No new tires for A-card ho ders, fewec lor B and C card holders--who got only 70 per cent of the tires they were eligible for during the last 3 months of 1944 WPB has cut the first-quarter quota by 25 per cent. Truck tin long scarce, will be scarcer. Stoves: The situation is tougher now than ever before, tougher than everyone thought last fall Inventories are at a wartime low with stoves in greater demand than ever because old ones are wearing out. Halted reconversion I Â·es, MAN KILLED IN MOTOR CRASH Mason Cityan Driver of Truck in Accident Mason city police reported Tuesday that LaVerne Weatherly, 28, 541 4th S. E., was the driver of a semi-trailer truck involved in a collision on highway ff east of Des Moines Monday evening, resulting in the death of a Mitchellville man, Walter M. Hirsch, 40.

W., forfeited $10 bond, in police court Tuesday morning'on a charge of intoxication. He was arrested at his home at 4 a. m Tuesday. programs mean no new ones during the first half of '45. Shoes: Fewer. Inventories have been reduced more than 40 per cent over the last 2 years because buying--though curtailed has over-reached production This year's output will be the lowest since Pearl Harbor. Rubber Footwear: Manpower shortages and. military demands will continue to make rationed rubber boots and work shoes scarce in 1945.
