R. B. Irons and Prineipa' James Hae at the meeting of the school board Monday afternoon. A new class oC 10 has just got under way, Jlr. Rae reported. Two officers o£ the navy procurement board from Wold-Chamberlain field, Minneapolis, were in Mason City last weelc in connection with the opening of the new class to study health and teaching facilities of the junioi college and the Mason City Air Activities airport ivhich has the contract for flight instruction * * * JThese officers, Mr. Rae said, were shown facilities here including those at tile Y. M. C A where the 10 iiav.v flyinff students now are quartered and where at feast 40 could be fed ana housed efficiently. One of the officers admitted that the airport facilities were sufficient for 40 students. * * * A second possibility of military usage of the -junior college facilities also was discussed by Mr Irons who colled attention to an article from the "School Review' The article discusses "rumored plans of the military authorities to billet the most promising 10 or 15 per cent of the 13 and 19 yeai old draftees in higher institutions for post-induction training.' Evidence that (he plans are not merely "rumor" was provided by Sir. Rae who said that he had returned a questionnaire to Doctor E. C. Elliott, president of Purdue university, who is in charge of preparations for the program. The questionnaire concerned educational and physical facilities, Ulr. Rae said. * * * -As returned, it pointed out that the equivalent of a dormitory was available in the Y. M. C. A., de- ·elopment o£ the third floor of he building being passible if needed, facilities for feeding the men are available in the Y. M. C. A., physical training equipment is available for indoor and outdoor activity and the faculty is one of demonstrated ability. The article in the "School Review-" expressed t, c j,ope that "these authorities will not overlook'the almost ready made suitability of the junior colleges for such a service. As an institution the junior college has been set up to serve this particular age group. * ¥ ¥ "Many junior colleges have gone far beyond the preparatory programs and have a breadth o£ terminal offering and staffs and facilities that make these units sufficiently flexible to meet the needs of post-induction- training. "In several respects the junior colleges can move easily meet these needs than can the great majority of higher institutions in which the work of the first two years has been restricted to programs in preparation for professional curriculums and other advanced specialization " * * * The post-induction (raining-, as he understands it, Mr. Eae said, would involve men, picked because of special adaptability or previous training, to be given further instruction in mathematics, medicine, den- Fresh Mode Small Wieners 20 Ib.

The board instructed school personnel to co-operate with the jovernment request to turn in iome of the typewriters from the offices and commercial department. Mr. Rae believed that it would be possible to spare 12 of the 60 now on hand. The proposal made by an association of i n v e s t m e n t houses to refinance at l : ;.'j per cent the S90.000 school bond issue now outstanding at 4";\ per cent, and due May 1, 1944, was again taken up by the board following a. study of the proposal since the last meeting. Secretary R. L. James was instructed to notify the investment representatives that the board favored refinancing the bond issue at l.'.a per cent, preferably before March 1.. Tuition paid by the slate for high school students living at the I. O. O. F. home during the last two years has totaled approximately 51,800, Mr. James reported. Elementary pupils, hoirever, are the responsibility. of the county from which they came, he said, and three of the eijrht counties involved have refused lo pay tuition on the grounds that parents of Hie students no long-er are residents of their respective counties. The secretary was instructed to work out with the assistance of B o a r d Member Garfield E. Breese a clarification of the state law to be submitted to the Cerro Gordo county legislative representatives. * * * Enrollment in the 3Ja$on City schools at the end of the first u-ecfc in January showed a loss of 163 as compared with the same lime a year ajo, the superintendent's r e p o r t showed.

Jack Russel War Puts Emphasis on High Quality Milk Attaining milk production goals during the new year is going to be a qualitative as well as a quantitative job for Iowa dairymen. This is emphasized by M P. Baker, of the Iowa State college dairy industry department. "The war has placed even greater demands on the reed for higher-Quality milk and dairy fulfilling the war time milk demand and insure a continued market for his product after the war is over." High-quality milk is judged on cleanliness, safety and flavor--all of which are closely associated with a program of good dairy sanitation on the farm, the specialist says. Although the possibilities for improving sanitation are almost limitless, by adopting a few simple protective practices sanitation can be vastly improved even on the small farm from which most of our increase in milk .production must come. j Report Given by Salvation Army Major The S a l v a t i o n Army spent $409.13 on its Christmas and relief expense for December, according to the monthly report of Maj.

Diei'king, new pastor of the Presbyterian church of Mason City, made his introductory talk to the Rotary club" Monday noon at the Hotel Hanford. He was introduced by M. W. Sprolc. L. A. Moore was in charge of the program.

CHRISTMAS SEAL SALES REACHING RECORD LEVELS Cerro Gordo Has Collected $3,176 for Tuberculosis Work Cerro Gordo and other North Iowa counties have a part o£ the increased effort which will make Iowa's 1942 Christmas seal sale certain to break the all-time record set in 1941. It appears now that the sale will attain the state goal of $171,856.30 set by the Iowa Tuberculosis association. This statement's based on the progress reports through Jan. 12 made by 41 representative cities and towns. * * * Cerro Gordo county has collected $3.176 against $3,057 for the corresponding period last. year. , . * * * This will provide ample funds for carrying on the fight against tuberculosis in this county, as well as in other sections ot the state. The executive committee of the Cerro Gordo county association plans to hold a meeting.within the next week to map out the program for testing and other work connected with the eradication ot this disease. * * * The 44 communities computed in the present survey of funds raised show an average gain of 18 per cent over their last year's records for the same period. This percentage gain was attained early in the sale and has been held throughout. Although complete reports from all communities may somewhat level off this increase, the state needs only a 17 per cent gain to attain its goal. Clinton, leader among- - the larger cities throughout the sale, reports that its increase has soared to 81 per cent. An outstanding record is also being achieved by Cedar Rapids with a aO per cent gain. Dubuque is 19 per cent ahead of its 1941 mark * * ¥ Among the smaller cities and towns reporting, Hubbard and IWarengo vie for leading position with gains of 98 per cent and 96 per cent respectively. Other leaders are Alden, 54 per cent Denison, 50 per cent, and Ida Grove 45 per cent. ' "Local Christmas Seal committees urged that those who have not yet paid for or returned seals act at once so that the sale may u c ° m P' eted as quickly as possible," the association states Prompt action will help in the early planning and development of 1943 activities for the control of tuberculosis. "Medical and public health authorities have recently reported evidence that tuberculosis is one of two diseases that appears to be increasing in prevalence--greatly in other countries, somewhat in the United States. The success of Iowa's 1942 Christmas Seal sale will make possible an intensified BUY ASPIRIN that can do more for you than SL Joseph "You live fay symbols." said Mr. 1 Dierking. "You don't live by a dollar bill, but by the faith engendered in that bill. If you lose that faith, nothing is left. The army salute is symbolic of the | authority given its officers. "You may think you live by bread alone, but you don't. The cross is the most sacred svmbol that we who profess Christianity have. . "If anything is left of representative form of government and freedom of speech and worship according to the dictates of men's conscience today, it is \o bo found in the symbol of the Union Jack and the Star Spangled Banner. You do not live by bread alone, you live by symbols." * * * President Hugh II.
