MASON CITY .GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 28 1931 NORTH IOWA ROADS BLOCKED feY SNOW (CtraUniK-d From Pare 1). ' two mites'east of.Rudd about 9. o'clock,-.- Every effort to extricate the bus :Saturday morntag failed, the drifting 'snow tnaking it Impos- »ible to reach the vehicle. .-· No. bus .was £ient south Saturday morning for the reason that information from ies Moines indicated the highway was'blocked. The 12:45 o'clock bus left on schedule time for the south. '·- , ' ; . City .Plows Out. : ! · " · . City snowplows were" busy Saturday morning , opening: streets for traffic and downtown corners were sanded to prevent traffic accidents, but no snow was to be hauled away, according to, P. F. Hopkins, city manager, who said city officials considered removal unnecessary because the show would probably melt in a few-houra. No extra help was to ,be employed. ( Because ' of irregularities in the arrival of trama In Mas"on City, star mail routes:out of the city were not running according'to schedule Sat- tirday., , ·· ^ . ·' Information received at the office of the district engineer of the highway commission indicated that No. j NOTED NOVELIST 65 was open in Franklin - county, altho No. 10, going east and west was" blocked. Highways in Hardin and Wright counties were 'reported passable.* , . · Roads Blocked. Information from Cresco was to the effect that the roads in the three counties handled from -there were all blocked. These counties are Howard, Mitchell and Chickasaw. One of the causes for the troubl* with drifts was the fact that half of the snow fences erected to pro 1 t'ec't highways were taken down on the requests of fariners who were getting ready to get into their fields. The fences stood thru tho major part of the winter without attracting a drift. , Indications, were that all nigh- ways in Wiimebago, Worth' and Hancock comities would be cleared by early Staurday afternoon, according to informtaiori received from Forest City, the headquarters for those three counties. The .worst part of No. 9 was immediately east of Manly, it was stated. The highway between Manly, and Forest City was reported passable early in the morning. . . v ' The storm brot a drop in temperature, the mercury, going to 22 degrees above during the night aud was at 23 above at 8 o'clock Saturday, morning. The total snowfall for the storm is about six inches, ·with a. present enow level of about five Inches. The precipitation for the past 24 hours was .40 of an inch, while for 'the entire two days ·the. amount totaled .62 inches. T isSjrowES, March 2* ts^A gbft^of .tie week-dead winter that BtftOftaXover Iowa last night had today buried the state under a wilte blanket ranging froto 2 to 14 ·inches:' Winds 'of varying velocities threatened to pile the snow Into drifts, presaginga week-end or longer of traffic .tleups and disrupted communication rlines. ' · Dubuqueappeared to have been the heaviest hit, with a fall of 14 inches up to 1 a. m. today and more coming. Snowplows had opened 'narrow lanes thru .the principal downtown streets. ,, Other eastern and central Iowa points reported heavy snowfall as ·well. At Cedar Rapids the fall measured 12 inches and at Io\va City 8. The anow was drifting badly and still, more was falling. v Charles City reported 7 inches, Des Moines and Davenport 5 and a ENOCH ARNOLD BENNETT TyphoidFever Ends Life of BritishWriter -LONDON, March 28. fJB--Ty- phoid fever has written a "finis" to the life of Arnold Bennett, one oJ the world's leading men of letters, whose works, acclaimed by the scholarly, did not disdain the common touch. - Ths end had been foreseen since Wednesday. Stricken with influenza seven weeks ago; he was thot to be recovering when typhoid fever brot him down again. A blood transfusion yesterday gave hlni temporary relief but -he weakened and early last night passed away peacefully. He was 63 years old. Bennett in his ljfe time''came to hear his own works, particularly the "Old Wives Tale" which .he published in 1908, rated as classic. He was most widely known perhaps for that work and the "Five Towns" .series, which depicted the drabness of England's pottery district. 1 In less serious works-he acted as a guide to what is best in literature, travel.and recreation. His works include novels, plays and essays.. He was not an educated man in the. generally accepted sense, but began life as a' solicitor's clerk and did not decide upon a literary career until he was 33 years old. WOULDlBMiT Motorists Stalled. Charlton, in.south central Iowa, -reported more than six inches, with .drifts stalling motorists north and Avest of 'the city. ··' Two air mail planes which left the Iowa City field yesterday were forced down, one at Grand Mount, Iowa, and the other at Aurora, HI. The Western part of the state was toot so heavily hit. =. The fall in that section was about two inches. Temperatures at Sioux City, however, fell below the freezing point and rain that had fallen .earlier froze, coating the streets .with ice. Council Bluffs reported a light ·wind and moderate temperatures. The.snow had stopped there. '. At Ottumwa eastbound Burlington buses were held lip indefinitely while motor transportation in other Ramseyer Belicvei Rep«al of State Laws Indicative of Change of Mini]. OTTUMWA.iMarch 28.
