FELLOWSHIP OF PRAYER Daily Lenten Devotional Prepared by Dr. Willard L. Sperry for Hie Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America. Fifth Week--"Faith and Hope" Faith and Hope As Patience. Saturday, March 13. "Let us run ·ith patience the race that is set efore us, Looking unto Jesus the uthor and finisher of our faith." lead Hebrews 11:32-12:2. The Book of the Revelation has, its opening chapter, u fine phrase a b o u t "the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ." Impatience and Christianity do not go well together. T h e science of DR. SPERRY time is deeply stirred by the old, entrenched, corporate evils of civilization. We shall never rest until we get rid of them. There is, how- wer, always the clanger that in noments of hasty enthusiasm for eform we may sell out our spir- tual birthright to some agitator vho cares little or nothing for re- igion, but who is more than wiling to make use of us for his own purposes. It is possible -- personally I hink it is probable--that Judas' in was impatience rather than greed. His Master seemed to him .o dally unduly long. He there- ore betrayed him in order to force .he pace of history, to bring the 'Dscuing and vindicating legions of angels from heaven. If this be he fact we have here the classic example of the ill-starred marri- nge of an impetuous religion to a fatal impatience. Prayer: Help us, O God, so. to combat the evil which is in the world that we do not fall its vic- -ims through our impatience, anc so to labor for righteousness thai our words and deeds shall not lass uselessly away, but may par- .ake of the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ. Amen. J. J. Burnett in Explanation of Procedure on North Iowa Forum. The relation ot examinations for lutomobile drivers to highway safety was pointed out as the Jorlh Iowa Forum feature on iCGLO Friday evening by J. J. Burnett of Mason City, assistant chief ot Iowa driver's license examiners. Individual responsibility on the part of the driver, condition of the machine and highway courtesy ivere named by the speaker as the main features which the slate considers in examining automobile drivers. Divisions of Examination. The examiner's method oC considering an application for a driver's license is as follows, according to Burnett: 1. Thorough inspection of safety appliances on car. 2. Actual driving test to determine whether applicant can operate vehicle in safe manner. 3.

The work of the Cerro Gordo County Tuberculosis association was heralded as a model for Iowa county associations at the meeting of the Iowa Tuberculosis association at DCS Moines held this weekend.

Thte is due, according to Dr. L. D. W'codward, who presented the report compiled by the county association, to the fact that Mason City's population is made up large!/ of foreign inhabitants as compared to other counties in the state. Dr. Harold \V. Morgan of Mason City also spoke on "Laboratory Aids,'' at ; the meeting. Three Years Olil. "Three years ago the work of the Cerro Gordo county associa- on got underway," said Dr. Voodward. "There were active ationnl and state organizations, ut so far as county work was con- erned, the organization was ac- ve cnly in the seal sale campaign nd the raising of funds for the ationril and state work.

The speaker explained in detail the procedure entailed with each division of the examination, and pointed out that it frequently calls for a liberal amount of patience on the examiner's part to put an applicant, through the various steps. "Since July, 1335," said Burnett, "the state department hus examined 172,729 drivers and chauffeurs." He asserted that the accident record of those who had undergone the examinations was encouragingly low. $715,463 Art Work of Grade S c h o o l Pupils to Be Displayed Here Art work by grade school pupils from first to eighth grade inclusive, under the direction of Miss Ethel Roberts, supervisor ol art in the elementary grades will be on display in the east section of the children's room at the public library March 15-20, for North Iowa teachers and parents and friends. The exhibit will show various types of creative art including finger painting, a new medium of expression used of late, border designs and panels in fresco and colored chalk. Applied original designs in book covers and boxes will show how children are taught color harmony, rhythm, proportion and balance and how they learn to create and apply that knowledge with discriminating taste to every day living. Large frie7.es done in colored chalk as well as others done in crayons on cloth will be attractive features of the exhibit. Block printing, easel painting, clay modeling, posters, pencil sketches, and numerous creative illustrations in chalk and crayon will be shown.

H. Plattenburg, Clear Lake, prominent lyceum lecturer. That summer one of Mr. Plattenburg's lectures was entitled "Worms Under the Bark." In one small community, where the chautauqua was to open, the superintendent didn't show up in lime and local talent was recruited to make the introductions. The introduction of Mr. Plattenburg went something like this: "1 am glad to introduce Mr. Plattenburg who will speak on 'Worms Under the Baric.' And I understand he's full of his subject." Mr. Fraser didn't recall exactly what Mr. Plattcnburg's introductory remarks were following this unexpected statement, except that he mastered the situation deftly and went on with his lecture. A million miles of driving, handling a taxi and as a private chauffeur, over the busy thoroughfares of Chicago and vicinity without an accident and not even as much as a scratch on the fender of his automobile -- that is the record of John Straka. Straka's occupation today is tanning, but while busy on the place he operates near Manly he olten thinks back to those eventful clays when he was a part of the throbbing lite of a big metropolis. From l!)2fl to 1927 he drove a taxi and then became the chauffeur of Arthur Traubo, wealthy Chicago real estate operator. As Traubc's chauffeur, Straka drove as much as 150,000 to 180,000 miles a year. Ho estimates that his taxi work took him over more than 100,000 miles of highways and streets eacli year. "I often think of the' fact that if I just had a penny for every 10 miles I've driven a car I would be a rich man," he said. Straka started driving a car in 1911 and has continued to drive since. "I attribute my record to the fact that I always keep the car under control," he said. "I never touch a drop of liquor or beer, not even water. Coffee and tea are my drinks." Straka came to Mason City Saturday specifically to sign up as a member of the safety council. "That's a move in the right direction," he said. iccomplish results for two reasons --it is'beneficial to the patient and t prevents the spread of disease. "Up until the work o£ the coun- y association was started the nonciy raised for the eradication of uberculosis was used for other lealth purposes locally," stated Jr. Woodward. From 1934 until the present 1,02!) persons have been tubercu- iu tested, according to the report. Ot this number 9GO were positive ·caetors. A total of 730 persons was x-rayed and 85 patients were examined in nine chest clinics and 508 patients were examined by jrivate physicians. Eleven patients lave been admitted to sanatoria since January, 1034; eight patients are now under treatment in the sanatoria. A total oC 7,900 pieces of literature has been distributed and 110 subscriptions to Health Habits magazine for rural teachers for 1835 and 193G. , Objectives Named: The objectives of the association are the prevention of tuberulosis in Cerro Gordo county through the dissemination of knowledge concerning the cause, prevention and cure of tuberculosis; the promotion of adequate facilities for case finding, treatment and after care as recommended by National and state associations; and to cooperate with local and state official health agencies in matters relating to tuberculosis.

At the Hospitals HOW ABOUT A PROCLAMATION? As March 13 is "Dillinger day" in Mason City, Saturday brought recollections to local residents ot the big bank robbery three years ago. That dny will go clown in history as the time when the First National bank passed out the largest :iinount of money without col- later:'! in all the years of its long existence in the community. It was also the day that Dr. Robert M. Hulchins, president of the University of Chicago, arrived in the city to address the Woman's club. Mrs. H. H. Shepard, head of the program committee, gave a dinner in his honor, but Willis G. C. Bagley stoic the show when he appeared with bandit bullels in his pockets and bullet marks on his clothes. Mike Nolan, Cerro Gordo hotel, was admitted to the Park hospital Friday for treatment. Kenneth Banning, 13 Fifth street northeast, was admitted to the Park hospital Friday for a major operation. A son weighing 4 pounds 3 ounces was born to Mr. and Mrs. John Mitchell, 37 Twenty-third street southwest, at the Story hospital Friday. S. H.

Fifteen tuberculin testing clinics were held throughout the county. The clinics will be held annually with concentration upon the seventh grades. Out of 580 pupils enrolled ill the seventh grades of the county 317 were given tuberculin test, or 54.05 per cent. Sixty-one were reactors, or 19.24 per cent. Of 1,318 high school students in the county 170, or fi.BG per cent, were tested. Forty of these, or 23.53 per cent, were reactors. Clinics Held. Beginning with the first chest clinic in October, 1935, 10 chest clinics have been hcld^--six in Mason City, one in Dougherty and one in Rockwell. A total ot 71 patients have been examined at the clinics and a total of 83 visits have been made by the patients to the clinics. Matters would bo greatly facilitated for doctors, public health nurses and social workers, if patients could be admitted within 30 days of the date of their diagnosis, according to the report. There is a distinct need for some type of compulsory isolation for patients who cannot be admitted or who refuse hospitalization in our sanitoria.
