.MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 17 · 1937 .THREE. TR ADEHOME H AS NEW EQUIPMENT 'All Departments of Local Shoe Store Modernized · in Past Weeks. The Tradehome shoe store, located at 18 South Federal avenue ior the past eight years, has undergone a complete modernization program during the past few weeks. Every new and modern convenience known to the shoe business has been incorporated in both the interior and exterior of the store. New neo-classic modern influences dominate throughout the store. A new ceiling has been installed and new beautiful semi-indirect lighting fixtures light the many innovations and attractive displays. Full length mirrors have also been installed for the i venience of modern youth. Hosiery Line Stocked. A new hosiery bar has also been installed in which a complete line of popular priced hose for men and women is to be featured. The windows of the store are the most beautiful it has had. Backgrounds studies of white and American Beauty and glistening chromium plated and glass modern fixtures set off the lovely new Easter styles of footwear in a glamorous symphony of color. "I am proud of my new store and I hope not only to make my old friends more comfortable but also to make many new friends," said A. M. Ady, local manager, who has been identified with the store since its opening here. Start New Program. "The modernization of the Mason City store is part of our program to bring to moderate sized communities modern up-to-date stores with all the convenience and with styles and values heretofore available only in metropolitan cities, 11 said Arthur Gale, vice president of the company, who is in Mason City to supervise the instalation of new window displays. "In addition to the. modernization of the Mason City store we have an elaborate advertising program that makes the largest investment in publicity in many years. I feel confident that our courage to proceed along these lines will be justified by our rapid economic recovery." ,! Return to Mexico City Is Described by Mrs. Kinney Museums and Restorations* of Ancient Ruins Hold Traveler's Interest. EDITOR'S NOTE: Below is the third of a scries of letters based upon a trip through old Mexico, written by Mrs. Inez Kinney, one of Mason City's most traveled c i t i z e n s . She writes this from Los Angeles, Cal. Dear Friends: Back in sunny California (there were two sunny days since the arrival) it may be difficult to tear the attention from the enchantments of the "City of the Angels," though somehow there's the assurance that it won 1 ! be too much of a strain, now while the spell of the Aztec city remains. On landing from the Ward liner "Orizaba," at Vera Cruz, it was decided to remain over night in order to make the 12 hour run to Mexico City by v daylight. The afternoon and evening were spent pleasantly, sightseeing, dining on. the sidewalk of a good restaurant which faced the central Plaza and enjoying the interesting spectacle of the famous "Paseo."

The short stretch of lowlands Dut of Vera Cruz made the beau- y and grandeur of the mountain cenery more striking, more im- ressive. From a section of pure- y tropical vegetation ·-- palms, eras, gardenias, orchids, and banana, orange, lime, lemon, papaya and numerous other fruit rees; cane, tobacco, coffee, and ineapple--one mounted to the .emperate region of cedar, pine, oak, and where a view of lofty peaks (Orizaba, 18,225 feet) were visible. The train climbs as high as 11,000 feet above sea level. At sizable stations picturesque its miracle well, Indian market, the Teneyuca pyramid, Xochimilco (Floating gardens) and old Churubusco monastery, (1590). When the trip to Mexico proper and Yucatan was planned it was decided to try for some ancient legends of the country and this hope has been realized in a measure. The Jegend of the "Senora of Guadalupe" has a chief place in the collection. Three Civilizations. The Pyramid of Teneyuca, quite recently restored, also has its story -- all too lengthy to include in a letter. Teneyuea represents the work and culture of three civilizations -- Nahua, Toltec and Aztec. As Professor Deverdun put it, The Toltecs covered and built over the Nahua; the Aztecs covered the Toltecs and the Spanish covered the Aztecs (not merely covered, but attempted to destroy.) Here the Plumed Serpent is in evidence and the various types of stone work clearly apparent. The time at Xochimilco was an interval extraordinary -- from time total, a moment set apart. The colorful vendors, the vista of canals, the flowers, the luncheon party at the Moctezuma restaurant (situated on the main canal) the ride -- with native music -- in the large canoe, (Capper Caps,) the small canoes with flowers everywhere; the 500 canals with flower- studded banks, all made for an experience unusually p 1 e a s i ng. One marring feature was the per- sistant native photographer who followed along in his canoe taking, developing and printing pictures enroute, then sending boys aboard our canoe to sell. When several are at work and the small salesmen obstruct our view and distract the attention from the interesting spectacle, the thing becomes a bit annoying. SCHOOLBOYS FORM PATROL St. Joseph's Unit to Be Used for Safety of Children. The St. Joseph school is to have a regular school boy patrol under the sponsorship of a committee of men from the church. The committee met Wednesday morning and made plans with Sheriff Tim Phalen for the patrol boys. The boys furnished belts, rain coats and hats, and a stop sign for the boys to work with. The school has had boys on the corners at the dismissal of the first and second grades but from now on the corner at the school, Fifth and Connecticut southeast, and at the church on the corner oC Fifth southeast and Georgia, will be patrolled by the boys in the morning, nnon and after school. The public is asked to observe the traffic laws and stop signs at these intersections. A meeting of the boys doing patrol work will be held in a short time to receive instructions in their duty as patrol boys. R. Winter Injured .When Truck Pinned Him in Excavation Richard Winter, West Haven, was injured while working at an excavation at 321 East State street about 10:30 o'clock Wednesday morning when a truck backed into him, pinning him to the wall of the excavation. X-ray pictures were to be taken of Mr. Winter Wednesday afternoon at the Park hospital, where he was taken in an ambulance following the accident. vendors o£ tropical swarmed the platforms. products Leaving the high, cool altitude the train dropped down to the cattle and grain belt, reached the naguoy haciendas, then on to the great plateau on which the City Mexico is built--on the site of :he city of the Aztecs. A city "airly cosmopolitan, where many types of people, architecture, ot profession and industry are found. The "Puro," the Mestizo, the Spaniard, the German, the Norte Americano and the Oriental. The amiable blending appears real. Museum of Interest. As. on another trip tp Mexico City,'· the'national museum : proved the chief object of interest in the city though the national palace, national library, Chapultepec palace, the Palace of Fine Arts, the market, the flower market, beautiful Alemeda plaza, etc., claimed their share of attention. The Palace of Fine Arts, begun during the Diaz regime and intended for a National Theater, has only recently been completed. It is one of the most beautifully finished buildings of its kind in the Americas, I believe. The first of the out of town "Pilgrimages" included the Guadalupe shrine, Pocito chapel with MODERN TYPEWRITING ON A WEEKLY BUDGET PLAN CORONA STA.

A quite extended visit was made to the-Monastery of Acolman, a climb to the roof up a winding stone stair was accomplished and IT; arded with a fine view. HoweveV, the chief objective on this journey was the Archeological zone of San Juan Teotihua- can. The main pyramid--The Sun --has been restored but the Moon and the many smaller mounds remain in much their condition as at the time of the Conquest. The Citadel, an immense walled quadrangle, having temple pyramids en each wall (the tour cardinal points and facing the Pyramid ot the Sun) a central pyramid, and the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, is some distance from the main pyramid. These have been restored and the Temple of Quetzalcoatl reveals another' temple, which us most magnificently engraved'and sculptured. The histories of these truly marvelous structures are told by archeologists and it must be chronicled that the stories do not always agree. Collection of [Material. The Pyramid of the Sun is entirely Toltec, while the Temple of Quetzalcoatl is Aztec. The structures are said to date from the fourth to the twelfth centuries though there is still some uncertainty. Returning to Mexico City, mention should be made of the modest collection of museum pieces made by n Jew nemed I. Tenebaum. A search and a study covering a period of 12 years has resulted in a mass of material, and conclusions which if proved true, are rather tremendous. He claims to have uncovered evidence t h a t t h e builders of the various historic civilization were the Hebraic origin--the Ten Lost Tribes and others. He declares he has deciphered the hieroglyphics; discovered the system of education which included everything f r o m the homely arts and crafts to the medical and dental professions. He has so grouped his models in sequence, that the development may be followed readily. He displays models of weights and scales, of "retorts," of "distillation," of gas making, of surgery and--skipping much--that of the stethoscope, dental instruments, etc. He has Adam and Eve and the Serpent Cain with the "mark on his forehead" and Abel lying prostrate. He claims to have proof that the Spanish burned Indies in (he Inquisition for keeping the Mosaic laws. A small piece from his collection was taken to an authority and pronounced genuine. The piece is now one of a small collection made on this visit to Mexico. One More Letter. Considering what is to be seen that is new, what is to do that is interesting and what is to be learned that is valuable, the time for departure comes all too soon. But the trip up the western coast should be left for one more short" letter. According to (hose "in the know," Mexico is fact approaching a crisis politically. With the advent of the tourist, prosperity appears well established. It was evident in Yucatan as well as in the more central states. The people are busy, well dressed, well nourished--excepting the usual small percentage. Cultural progress seems keeping pace with material improvements. But that there is a tension of feeling is evident also. Those who have are unwilling to relinquish to those who haven t, an age-old bone, always hard and bitter.
