Delaware Phone 319 PLANS PROGRESS FOR REPAYING FEDERAL AVENUE BUSINESS GROUP HAS CONFERENCE WITH ENGINEERS Chamber of Commerce, Retail Merchants, City Officials Attend Meeting. A joint committee representing the Chamber of Commerce streets and highways committee and the Retail Merchants association met Thursday, afternoon in the office of Raymond Zack, district engineer for the Iowa state highway commission, learned of the progress of plans for repaying Federal avenue and discussed how it might he done with the least inconvenience to business. The paving operations will probably not begin before July 1, as it will be impossible to complete the plans, publish the necessary notice, let the contract and have a contractor on the job before that It is hoped to include in the job, four Hocks south of the new paving which was laid last year and this will undoubtedly be done first and thus get tie far end of South Federal avenue cleared up before North Iowa fair time. Depends on Weather. How fast operations can progress north of the Milwaukee viaduct will depend not only on the-contractor, but on such other items as the city's storm sewer work, water, sewer and gas connections along the line and, of course, the weather. After a thorough discussion of various plans such as paving one side of the street at a time, it appeared to all concerned" that the job would progress fastest and with the least inconvenience to business to go right through the avenue, paving both sides of the street as rapidly as the old paving can be taken up and the new grade prepared While new paving will now cure in seven days, it will probably mean that' any given block will out of use for three to four weeks as the job progresses. Highway commission officials will have the right, under terms of the letting, to restrict the contractor to a reasonable number of blocks to tear up at any one time and will see to it, they promised,, that "reason" is used in that respect. _ "I live in Mason City, said Engineer Zack 'and certainly want this job done ·with the least,inconvenience to all concerned." Costs Are Higher. Paving costs.-are materially higher, this spring, for this kind of jobs with federal money, it was pointed out and. it will probably not be possible to pave Federal as far north, at was once thought probable. However, this cannot be determined until bids are actually taken and the amount of money available is determined by the state high commission. The fact that this and similar city street work is being done with federal money and with hours and conditions of work severely restricted has made bids on jobs already let this spring much higher thw last year. Those present at the conference besides Mr. Zack were Bob McCormick of Ames, engineer from the plan department, and L. L. Lawton of Mason City, who will be resident engineer in charge of the Mason City work; City Manager Herbert T. Barclay, City Engineer C. H Stevens and Councilman Leo Davey; E. H. Wagner, chairman of the Chamber of Commerce streets and highways committee, and H. L. Green, F. J. Olson, Tad Martin and W. G. C-.Bagley. Leaves for Nebraska. WODEN--H. A.

Upper Iowa Delegate to M.-E. Conference Honored F. R. CUBBIE LARSON SCORES HERRING STAND Demo Leader Says Governor Knows That Campaigns Cost Money. CHARLES CITY, IS)--Stating that political campaigns cost money and that none knows it better than Gov. Clyde L. Herring, Erwin Larson, chairman of the state democratic executive committee and fourth district chairman, Friday attacked the good faith of the-governor in objecting to the circulation of the 3 percent pledge cards among state employes for the purpose of raising campaign funds. "It is improbable," states Mr. Larson, "that Mr. Herring, in his heart, objects to contributions from em- ployes. It is apparent that he is attempting to further his campaign for nomination as the democratic candidate for the U. S- senate by kicking the organization he expects to elect him next fall. This financial program was arranged and approved by the democratic state central committee of Iowa and was presented to and approved by the elected officials of the state, including Mr. Herring."

CHAMBER, LEGION TO ABANDON PLAN TO KEEP AIRPORT Hope Expressed That Federal Government Will Supply Funds for Field. The Chamber of Commerce and the American Legion will abandon the Mason City airport within 60 days and conclude their 10 years of effort to provide Mason City with an airport. Whether Mason City will have any kind of a port after that time is "in the lap of the gods," it was stated by members of the joint operating board, representing the sponsoring bodies, who met jointly Thursday noon with officers of their respective organizations and representatives of the pioneer Flyers, who have been operating the port. The presentation at the meeting of Harry 'Hopkins' WPA report, which showed that the federal government has allotted more than $100,000,000 to airports by the end of 1935, added to the feeling that the present sponsorship of the port, should draw to a close. Even small county seat towns in Iowa have received many thousands of this money for hangers and other port improvements, but have been municipally leased or owned. Mason City efforts to get assistance failed on this very point. "Sponsors of the airport hope that some way will be found to keep Mason City on the air map," one member of the committee pointed out. "They do not want'the city to revert to 'tank town' type in this respect, but feel that any further expenditures or efforts on their part are futile. "The Chamber of Commerce and the Legion together have spent nearly $15,000 in rent for the field, hangar and other small' buildings and other aviation developments in connection with the present field and its predecessor. The Pioneer Flyers, who have been running the field for the operating board, have also put a lot of their own time and money into aviation promotion." GOLF, COUNTRY CLUB TO OPEN Social Activities at Links Begin May 5 With Dance. Weather permitting, the Mason City Golf and Country club will open for the 1936 season Saturday.
