A full page of pictures and a lengthy article about Dr. Lepper's treatment for color-blindness appeared in a Chicago daily news- ·paper .that circulates throughout the middle west. As Dr. Lepper, not without some · visibleiand justified show of pride placed the page from the Chicago ' Herald-American' before us we couldn't help but recall that bit of Scriptural wisdom, "A prophet is not-without honor save in his own . country." * # * The article which bore the caption, "Obscure Doctor Offers C«re for Color-Blindness" across the top of the pare, pointed out Out Dr. Lepper's treatment may be the means of adding thousands of men to Uncle Sam's fithtinc forces. * * * Wind Blows and Mrs. W. P. Butler of Mason City, met Ensign Carrico. They became eood friends and in time Butler learned that the ensign's wife was living in Mason Cily. He wrote his parents to look her up. She was living just around the corner from the Butler home. * Old Time Dpnces Mason City residents of the early twenties will recall what an important part of the community life were the old time dances sponsored by the local Legion post. The dances, held every Saturday night, became a community institution while at the same time swelling the Legion post coffers to make possible various important services and contributions to the community, This week came an inquiry from Louisville, Ky., indicatin° the Legion in that city of 400,000 plan parting the old fashioned danc wanting programs and dance to know tometric society.

The group was from Georgia and many of the boys never saw snow before they came north on this trip. * Appreciative Fellow Carol Swift was awakened a,. 1 a. m. at his home in Clear Lake a few nights ago by a loud knock at the door. "I'm stuck, can I borrow your snow shovel?" asked the man at the door. Swift informed him how to get the shove? in the garage and turned on the backyard light The motorist got the shovel and workad for some time before his car was out of the snow The next was gone. morning the shovel Will Lecture Here MeetingThursday SSSf DOCTOR MAX IIABICHT --Leaeue of Nations Expert GERIIAKT H.

"Basically, the Lepper treatment consists of light therapy. Filters of primary colors-- red, green, yellow owe, : violet-- are placed in spec- Jacle frames, and the patient looks intently ^through the filters at a lamp placed a. few feet away. .

MARSHALL ' Mayor of Mason City RED CROSS WORK IN '42 REVIEWED BY TOM CONNOR National Campaign for Funds Scheduled in Month of March Activities of the Cerro Gordo ·ounty chapter of the American Red Cross, as reported at the an- ual meeting last week, were re- 'iewed 'orum Friday on by Thomas the KGLO L, Connor, hapter chairman. He cited the iveral working branches for their ervice in 1942 and suggested omething of their importance in new year. Sir. Connor said the home service committee directed bv Dr. R. E. Smiley served one of Ihe most important purposes. Claims and case work to the number of 107 veterans of wars were handled, he .. said. Assistance in the form of intercommunication, reports on home conditions, claims and family service, was extended to 360 active servicemen. * * if "One of the outstanding results or the past year," the speaker de- ared, "was the work of the Jun- x Red Cross under the leadership L Mrs. Rob Roy Cerney and her ommittee." Mr. Connor told of (he 'Ork finished by the juniors ad- ing. "One must see their worK to ppreciate it." As chairman o{ water safety tor ic Cerro Gordo chapter, Larry Eeeb carried on an extensive pro- ram -during the summer, the peaker said. As a result, 156 peo- le were better trained to enjoy -ater sports in safety. First aid instruction by the Red ross here was another outstand- ng contribution, Mr. Connor said. tr. Heeb and Mrs. Earle Shcka ·ere co-chairmen of first aid. This work is doubly, important, le chairman said, because of the lortage of professional workers o care for injured. * * * "If. as a result or this training, some injured people are saved From mishandling on the way lo the doctor or to the hospital, the program is well worthwhile," Mr. Connor added. * * * Home nursing tutelage led by Irs. H. J. Bruns and Miss Laura Valpole enabled 688" women to ·in certificates, the forum speaker aid. The nutrition course con- ucted by Mrs. R. E. Smiley fitted 4 persons for war-time work in utrition and for "the problems oming with food rationing." Motor corps directions has been y Mrs. Marvyl Pierce with 17 omen completing the course, Mr. onnor said. The disaster relief ork is undsr C. E. Leffler, who as his group ready to give aid in event of a natural disaster or to co-operate with civilian defense * * * "The newest service, now getting into action, is the nurses' aides," Mr. Connor said. "Mrs. Harold Campbell is chairman and with the help of Miss Ka«h- ryn Wenzel, nursing arts instructor at Mercy hospital, IZ women are now qualified to go into the hospitals and help the professional nurse in many ways. Many more nurses' aides will probably be needed to help those nurses remaining- at home to carry on." Perhaps the best 'known of all Mason City Red Cross projects, Mr. Connor said, is th,e production work under Mrs. Jay Lorenz. More than 2,000 persons have taken part in making garments and ^ur- gical dressings. * ¥ * "One hundred and ninety-eight thousand, six hundred and ninety-five surgical dressings were produced." Mr. Connor said, and 2,055 knitted as well as 26,109 sewed garments were completed. In addition, 510 comfort kits were made and filled to be given to members of our armed forces when they leave our country." * * * Continuing his review of the -erro Gordo chapter's work, Mr -onnor told of the recruiting -of rained nurses for the armed forces. Miss Wenzel is chairman of this activity. Mi ss Nancy Cum- mmgs. nursing consultant of the nidwestern branch, recently visited in Mason City to organize the recruiting. The hospital and recreational service is another recent organization, said Mr. Connor. Mrs John Senneff is leader of the work to collect furniture to send to Iowa military camps. Mr, Connor also cited the six persons from this county with the national organization of the Red -ross. He spoke of Miss Ellen famith s progress as recreational worker and o£ her report to Ihe annual meeting. * * * The customary Red Cross roll call was not held last November ie pointed out. No money-raihin" campaigns at all were held in 1942, he added. "March. 1943, has been designated as Red Cross month, and a campaign will be conducted during this period to care for local, national and international war-time needs of the organization for one year," Mr. Connor explained.
