Insist North Iowa's Home Newspaper MASON CITY TO SUPPORT EFFORT FOR SHORE SITE Strong Competition Among Iowa Communities Evident. Clear Lake, thru the Clear Lake Commercial club, is in the field for the location of the proposed veterans' hospital for Iowa. That community has a beautiful site near the lake, with a fine wooded tract, close to a paved road, to a railroad and to public services such as gas, lights, water and sewage. In fact in many respects the site seems exceptionally to meet the requirements of the veterans' bureau for such hospital locations. In view of- the ideal location at Clear Lake and of the fact that two of the principal competitors are Storm Lake and the Iowa Great Lakes region, the special committee representing the Mason City Cham ber of Commerce and Clausen Wordeu post of the American Legion has decided unanimously to support Clear Lake in its endeavor to locate the hospital. Move Is Ratified. Its report, advocating such support, was presented to a meeting of the board of directors of the Mason City chamber by President B. A. Webster, who is chairman of the joint committee. It was unanimously ratified by the chamber board. Other members of the joint committee are the Rev. Jewel L Pickett and Ralph Lloyd Jones representing the American Legion and E. S. Selby and Willis G. C Bagley, representing the Chamber of Commerce. In connection with the whole sit uation. two points were noted by President Webster In order to pre vent undue optimism. The first is that the veterans bureau has no even definitely decided to locate a general hospital In this state, as passet JOINSJ3LEAR LAKE IN HOSPITAL BID MASON CITY TO Lggs POPULAR VOTE I OPERETTA TO BE E »" C e t M I L W A U K E E PAYS i - p ^ T ^ t I D R T g CLARK i| SHPPflRT FFFdRT rSSSSST RFPPflTPIl UFRC r /r 6y COO O O I A C T » V Violators in Two OS TE WTHIO PHYSICIAN aurruni trruni I |^BH ntrtAltu Hint ,, Exceed Expectations $28,832 AS TAX w^K^c^\ G TM taF ^^ EaT ' N TM' , ird .

In the second place, if and when the veterans bureau does decide to locate such a hospital in Iowa there ia strong competition amonf Iowa communities for its location about 30 of whom have already announced their intentions of asking for the same. Included in these ii Storm Lake, where a generous citizen has offered free a 120 acre site on the lake shore. No Free Site Expected. At the present time there is no intention, according to members of the committee, of offering a free site for the proposed hospital unless some generous, public spirited citizen should come forward with an offer similar to that reported al Storm Lake. Anyway, it was pointed out, the gift of a site is not the deciding factor in such locations, which must take into consideration a large number of other factors. The committee feels, it was stated, that many of these factors are combined in the lake location. There is not only the beautiful character of the specific tract itself, but also proximity to Mason City, a large community, which is a transportation and trade center, all of which are mentioned by the Veterans bureau as important points in considering locations. A joint committee from Clear Lake and Mason City will prepare a brief setting out the advantages of the Cerro Gordo county location and present it to tho veterans bureau at an early date. --HAVE YOU VOTED?-Hughes Is Dismissed from Park Hospital Raymond Hughes, 18 Adams avenue southwest, high school boy injured in an automobile accident, near Rudd three weeks ago Monday, was dismissed from Park hospital Sunday.

NO SHORTAGE OF IDE HERE Ample Stock at Clear Lak .·L jmd Masofl City^ Lecal_ Manager States! Both Mason City and Clear Lake have ample ice on hand to take care of the summer demands, despite the the relatively high temperature during a large part of the winter, according to F. E. Johnson, manager of the Crystal Lake Ice and Fue company. Mr. Johnson's statement concerning the ice situation, was made in response to a number of press reports of ice shortage in other communities due to the warm winter. "We have as much Ice as we ever did," he said. "Clear Lake froze over to a depth of 13 ^ inches the early part of the winter and in January we put up as large a stock of ice as we ever had." --HAVE YOU VOTED? Assistant Scout Executive May,Be Transferred Soon K. J. Gleason, who has served aa assistant scout executive of the North Iowa area council since January, 1930, was called to Omaha Saturday to interview Fred G. Davie, regional scout executive of region eight, concerning a transfer to another position in scouting. This consideration of transfer comes at an appropriate time in the year's activity of the council, inasmuch as a revision in the financing of the area towns made it necessary to reduce the executive staff. Mr. Gleason has been serving since last fall in Districts 1 and 2, which comprise Worth, Mitchell, Floyd and Butler counties, as well as troops outside of Mason City in Cerro Gordo county and the old lumbered troops in Mason City. His work in these troops has been of a high type. He . conducted three training courses last fall, which were of jreat benefit to scouting in Clear Lake, Osage' and Charles City, Last summer, he served as assistant camp director, in charge of the tepee unit of the camp. --HAVE YOU VOTED?-Stolen Car Recovered in South Part of Town The 1925 model Ford belonging to Axel Jensen, 11616 Twenty-second street southeast, reported stolen Sunday, was located by police in the south end of town later in the day.

Last year only nine schools took part in the tournament, according his famouay to W. A. Bricdley, professor of Sandor Will Sing Again His g? Gypsy Love Song to Musette. Saudor will again sing his famouay -u »v- Ji. jsrmaiey, processor of Gypsy love song to Musette in Vic- speech and coach of debate at the tnr TT»rh«.fa "n,,TM,,, Tn--t m_., Teachera college. In view of this fact it was planned to have a round robin tournament wherein not more than 11 schools would be admitted in the order of entry. This plan would make it possible for each school to meet every other school and thus provide valuable practice. This year 24 schools applied for admission, and the first 11 to make application have been entered in the tournament. Mr. Brindley announces that he hopes next year by means of a modified plan to make it possible to include many more schools in the tournament than was possible this year. Schools whlcn will take part in the tournament are Eagle Grove high school, Washington high school of Cedar Rapids, Mason City high school, Washington high school, Belmond high school, Charles City high school, Oelwein high school, Elkader high school, Independence high school. Cedar Falls high school and West high school of Waterloo. --HAVE YOU VOTED?-- tor Herbert's "Gypsy Fortune Teller" at 8:15 o'clock Tuesday evening at the high school auditorium. The operetta, presented by students of the high school and junior college, is being repeated the fourth time by popular request. Fern Meurs will take the part of Musette, the fortune teller, and Don Helbling will sing the songs of Sandor, a musician. Both Miss Meurs- and Maxine Beerman, who took the part of Musette in the other performances of the production, studied the part. Other characters remain unchanged. The operetta was first presented to the general public March 17 at which time it received much comment of a favorable nature. It was repeated the following Friday during the teachers convention here and again played before an almost capacity house. Members of the cast traveled to schools in neighboring towns giving previews last week. A matinee for students of t the public schools of Mason City was given two weeks ago. The operetta, which has to do with the love tangle occasioned by the double part played by Musette., is filled with choruses and ballet numbers. The famous love song occurs in the second net when Sandor serenades his love in the window of the count's chatteau. At the time Musette is about to become the countess. The choruses and dances are well done and the solo parts are sung with a finish unusual for high school productions. The costumes lighting satisfactory. s The .operetta was directed by Miss Ellen Smith. Dances were under the supervision of Miss Helen Platt and Miss Marjorie Smith directed the orchestra. --HAVE YOU VOTED?-$100 IN FINES ADDED TO CITY All But One Case at Police Court Concern Liquor Law Violation.

County treasurers in the Iowa counties, where the Milwaukee road operates, this week are receiving from the railroad checks in payment of taxes for the year 1920. Cerro Gordo county receives this year $28,832.02 of the $1,374,572.62 to be used for tne benefit of the residents of this state. Payment is made in two installments. The MilwauKee road has an important investment in Iowa comprising right-of-way, buildings, equipment and over 2,600 miles of track of all kinds. Service is maintained at 350 stations. In normal times its payrolls in the state amount to more than $11,000,000 annually, divided among nearly 6,500 employes. Each year the road purchases materials and supplies costing more than $1,000,000 from manufacturers and producers in Iowa. Railroad 'taxes have increased considerably in recent years. Complete figures for the year just closed are not as yet available but in 1929 the railroads of this country paid In taxes approximately 5420,000,000. Since 1911 railroad taxes have increased 302 per cent, while investment in. their properties increased but 74 per cent. From these statistics it would appear that, so far as taxes are concerned, our railroads are in a class all by themselves. --HAVE TOO VOTED?-- ANNOUNCEMENT ·tt. your Car washed IT r or greased IDC Sanio Quality tt'ork us Before LAPINER MOTOR CO.
