FOUR MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE IOWA RANKS WELL IN LEGISLATION Professor Sees Need for Agency - Special Welfare Group ; Should Inquire Into Problems. IOWA CITY--Iowa, wel . abreast of most other states '. with progressive legislation in behalf, of child welfare, never .- theless does not have a specia ; welfare agency to inquire into . the needs of dependent and de: linquent' children. This is pointed out by Prof "Frank E. Horack of the University of Iowa political science · department in a study puDlishec by the Iowa child welfare re- Bearch station. In matters of dependent and delinquent children, Professor Horack writes, reliance is laic chiefly upon probation officers, truant officers, and school teachers to bring such children before the juvenile court. After commitment by that court, however, the board in control is given full authority to do; almost unhindered, whatever in its opinion will best promote the interests of. its charges, according to the university man. Iowa child welfare laws. many of which have been en! acted within the past ten years, appear to be practically on a par with those of high-ranking : states. These include adequate : provisions relative to guardian, ship, adoption, health and saf- ! ety of children, and cliild labor, · Professor Horack found ; "The child labor probtam has : not been a serious one in Iowa, and so we could hardly expect the refinement of detail which is found in legislation of some - industrial states. Yet the child labor laws of Iowa, if well-enforced, seem to offer reasonable . protection against the exploiting of children in industry," he says. SHE ADORES SPINACH If you'd "keep young and beautiful," little girls, and make a hit in motion pictures, eat your spinach and other things 'our mother sets before you. . At least, that seems to be the moral of the success story if little blue-eyed, curly-haired, blond Shirley Temple, who lings and dances before the :amera, stepping right into the eading lady, role in a baby bur- esque series, and featured in everal comedies. Shirley is four years old and has lived on a diet prepared by a child specialist. She's decid- dly not a "prodigy," but a very normal little - girl who plays with her dolls and two pet do^s --"Poochie" and "Corky"," either real. She has two older rothers, George and Jack, and ves with them and her par- nts, Mrs. Gertrude and George F. Hemple, at Santt Monica, Cal. Shirley loves breakfast cer eals, eats her spinach wit] relish, but her favorite in th food line is vegetable soup. Her disposition never varies they say. She's always sunny no matter how difficult th day's work. And at the end o: the day Shirley's just as livelj as when she started. Shirley plays on the beach near her home and is learning to swim, although she has not as yet mastered, the technique of the sport. Five Generations Together. OAKLAND, Cal. (UP)-- Five generations of the family of Mrs. Emma- Martha Scott, 94 reside here in one house. The youngest is Robert Elmer Ferguson, Jr., bom recently. Food of Babies Should. Be Kept Fresh, Pure Vance, Maytag Offer Special. Showing of Refrigeration. Of vital importance to the health of babies is that their food be kept, fresh and pure. Modern refrigeration relieves the mother of any worry on this score. And in spring, the time of year when housewives are beginning to think of rejuvenating -their homes, is always, somehow, the time for thinking, too, of making the kitchen a more pleasant place to live in. In these modern days, when housewives are releasing themselves from the drudgery that once encompassed our mothers and grandmothers in going about their day-in and day-out tasks of preparing meals for the family, nothing is more in the limelight than an electric refrigerator. Not only has this industry made tremendous 4 strides in the last several years, but today, more than ever before, housewives appreciate, not only the convenience that an electric refrigerator affords, but the economy of having one in the home. THE GRUNOW It's interesting to know that electric refrigerators, like other modern -developments, started jut as more or less homely iings. Perhaps one would laugh at an original electrical refrigerator just as much to- lay as they would be inclined :o snicker at seeing the orig- nal. model of one of today's deluxe automobiles. Vance Music company and ^erro Gordo Maytag company rf this city, local agents for ^runow refrigerators, with safe Uirrene, announced that they n common with some 6000 other retail stores throughout he country are , this week holding a spring showing of the new urunow refrigerator mod- The spectacular feature , of the Grunow is that it operates with Carrene, a refrigerant so pure and simple that one may taste it, smell it and even hold it in the hand without danger or discomfort. The Vance and Maytag companies announced they are not only holding a spring showing of the new Grunow models, but are making demonstrations of special interest to housewives and children of "what's inside" an electric refrigerator. Three in One. In the fall I buy print dresses for my little girl I go over all the seams on my machine before she wears them. In the spring I cut out the sleeves and neck, bind with tape, and she wears them all summer for ?lay. Then for winter I cut :hem up the back and hem them for coverall aprons.--Parents' Magazine. Especially So If There's a Baby in the House... Proper food preservation is all-important ... it becomes paramount in the home where there are babies. Milk and other foods must be kept at the right temperature to preserve their body-building qualities.
