16 TUESDAY, MARCH 23, 1939 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE $2,000 LOSS IN FIRE AT GREENE Blaze in E. H. Barth Home Is Believed to Have Begun in Attic GREENE--Fire due to either defective wiring or chimney caused $2,000 damage to the home of E. H. Barth in Greene Monday morning. The fire, which was discovered by a neighbor, Max Bellows, had gained much headway before the report was turned in to the local department. George Hamilton, who is employed by the Buchnolz and Dralle store here, was home at lunch at the time, and had just completed fixing the furnace fire when the fire whistle sounded. Sees Own House on Fire ·Mr. Hamilton, interested in the fire, went outside to see the neighbors looking at his roof, where the fire was bursting through the shingles. . The fire had evidently started in the attic, for the flames came through the roo£ before the fire was noticed. Inspection made after the fire was extinguished failed to prove the origin of the fire, for the attic was too badJy gutted to definitely place the blame on one of the other. Blaze Began in Attic , However, as the fire started in the attic, and this part of the house was not occupied, it was assumed that either the wiring or the chimney condition was responsible. Friends and neighbors assisted in carrying all the furniture out of the house that it was possible to get at before the fire and water was able to damage it. As it was necessary to pour tons of water into the house via the roof, the plaster . and woodwork throughout the house was badly damaged.

It was Born with a Great Record! MERCURY 8 ERHAPS no new car has ever had the built-in assurance of r Tightness the Mercury 8 enjoys. It was built in an established plant, to established principles, by time-proved- quality methods. It takes the proved Ford V-8 engine design to larger size, with Sturdier parts and more power. It takes the Ford time-proved chassis design, and gives it extra inches of wheelbase. It adds something of Lincoln-Zephyr's style and roominess--and it sets up, almost overnight, a brand new value among motor cars. It is Ford-built extra value, on an even bigger scale. It is big in passenger space and in luggage space. It is rich in style and in appointments. It is quiet and extremely comfortable. Its power compared to weight is great, yet it is almost child's play to drive, S E E Y O U R T O R D . M E B C U R Y O R STYLE LEADERSHIP-New standards of beauty for the lower jnrdium-pricc field.

WARPLANES FOR BRITAIN TO BE MADE IN CANADA Dominion Plans to Manufacture Ships at Aircraft Plants By DEVON' FRANCIS Associated Press Aviation Editor NEW YORK, (fP--A long range program to insure a supply of Canadian-made warplanes to Great Britain in the event of war has been quietly inaugurated in Canada. Certain types of the planes can be flown across the Atlantic i£ the need arises. A dozen companies, two of which have been manufacturing planes of American design, will participate in the project, intended to be under way next year for actual delivery of machines, Made in Dominion Medium and heavy bombers and training planes, types most urgently needed by the British Royal Air Force, will be made in the dominion. The British already have ordered several hundred medium bombers and trainers from the United States plants. Encouragement of Canadian warplane manufacture is not for the purpose of immediate productivity, however. The British air ministry, which last year sent n mission to Canada to explore the subject, is interested in potential warplane output in the dominion in an emergency. Emphasize "Long Kange" The "long range" aspect of the program has been emphasized repeatedly by the air ministry and by Canadian investors. Not emphasized but obvious is the danger to British aircraft factories from bombings. One or more important factories put out of commission even temporarily in wartime would seriously affect the nation's military strategy and the safety of its civilians. Britain has made no attempt comparable to that in Germany to "hide" its aircraft factories or make them bomb-proof. Will Assemble Parts Two new aircraft plants, near Toronto and Montreal, will merely assemble parts of the bombing planes, to be manufactured at .a half dozen different factories. Four more plants have been designated to .manufacture light planes for training. Orders in lesser amounts also will go to the Boeing company, Vancouver, am the Fort William plant of the Canadian Car and Foundry company The air ministry itself has saic the bombers can be flown to England in emergency. Though Canada in the past has obtained most of its commercia airplanes in the United States. ; has built up a manufacturing in» dustry of its own which will be the foundation for an · expandec output to fill orders of the air ministry. The "DC Havilland factory a Toronto is turning out one training plane a day. MEET ON APRIL 1 RUDD--The King's Heralds \vil meet Saturday. April 1 with Bonnie Lee Schrader.
