In Graduate Work. Mr. Rae is another name added to a long list of Mason City Junior college graduates who have won scholarship distinction at Iowa, Minnesota and other large universities. A point of remarkability about his achievement is that he has completed his requirements for a bachelor of arts degree in three semesters at the university and is now engaged in graduate work, looking to a master's degree. He is only 20 years old. Fraternity Leads. Mr. Rae was recently notified by BILL KAE the university's graduate council of the award to him of a scholarship for the continuation of his niathe matics specialty next year. He is preparing himself for actuarial work. Sigma Chi, the academic fraternity with which Bill is affiliated, holds first place in scholarship on the campus and he hag the distinction of leading his fraternity on this score. His extra-curricular activities include membership in both the band and orchestra of the university. William Ellsworth, another of the honored group, is a fraternity brother and bosom friend of the local student. A line CTpipe Stick to the Pipe--Let the Smoke Blow Where It Will By T.

Luther Emmet Holt has two other books that are also frequently borrowed, Miss Virginia Soukup of the circulation department at the library says. One is "The Happy Baby" and the other "Food, Health, and Growth," a discussion of the nutrition of children. Dr. Holt's books have been translated into many languages and Miss Barrette says that there is a Greek edition of "Care and Feeding of'Children." It is used laigcly from the library station at McKinley school although it has been frequently shifted to other parts of the city. The Greek title reads-"Pos Prpei na Peripioume Kai na. Trephomen to Paida Mas." The book was translated into Greek and published in Athens. -There is another book in Greek on care and fcyrience of infants by Connna Canoutas. Its title translated into English reads "Our Babies." Feeding and Health. Baby's feeding is important and recipes for the preparation of food for infants and small children may be found in a book by Isaac Arthur Abt called "Baby's Food." Another book entirely on feeding is by J. L. Morse. It is called "Diseases of Nutrition." General books on baby s health and proper growth are "Baby's Health." by Richard Arthur Bolt;; "The Healthy Baby" by Roger Herbert Dennett; "Care of the Baoy" by John Price Griffith. This is a manual for mothers and nurses and contains practical directions for the management of infancy in health and disease. "How to Take Care of the Baby" by Frances Tweddeil is another practical manual. and the children's bureau at Washington has interesting and useful bulletins on this subject. Exercise. A book ia devoted to the exercises of the infant from five months to a. year old. It is called "Baby's Daily Exercises" by Edward Wilkes Wilkes. "Parents and the Happy Child' by Lorinc Pruette gives the psy chology of family life and of cnild development. "Modern Parents, · by G. C. Myers is a practical guide to everyday problems for those who are responsible for the young-poise, firmness and sympathy sup planting impatience and nervous ness. Edward Parker Davis has a goo little book called "Mother and Child." M. M. Eldred has a volumi called "For the Young Mother.' Charles Gilmore Kerley's book is en titled "Short Talks With Young Mothers on the Management of In f ants and Young -Children" and Car olyn Van Blarconv has a book o "Getting Ready to-Be a Mother." Lullabies and JJetrature. The library has a volume of th jest baby verse that haa been wri' ten. It is collected by Joseph Mor ris and St. Clair Adams. Elva Smith who has edited many fine volume if selections has one entitled "Boo of Lullabies." The lullaby goes bac in its history to the very beginning of literature. The simple croon use by the primitive mothers to lu their children to rest and the moc ern slumber song are akin in th thoughts and feelings which the" express. A common sentiment Jink together diverse ages and races i these cradle songs. A humorous b of a poem on babies by James ' Tippett of the Lincoln school o Teachers' college reads: "Seven Babies" The baby dog Is a pup, pup, pup. The baby hen Is a -chicken. The baby horse. Is a colt, colt, colt. The baby sheep Is a lamb, lamb, lamb. The baby cow Is a calf. The baby pig Is just a little pig Oh,, how He makes me laugh. The library has several books that will help in finding a name for the baby. There 13 one volume in Routledge's Miniature Reference library. Flora Hines Loughead's book gives scientific derivations and has a chapter on names for twins. "Important People" by J. H. Dowd is a beautiful book of drawings of children at play. There is an attractive pickaninny among the pictures which range from very small children at play to a boy scout in his teens. "Peggy and Peter" is a book on children's photographs. "Nancy" also is a series of beautiful photographs of a small child.

EDITOR'S NOTE--Here Is the third ol a series of letters written !.V James E. Morldey, Mason City lawyer, who with his daughter, Bliss Doris, are now encircling the globe on a study and sight-seeing expedition. A considerable part of this Installment, largely written at sea, has to do with the Markley's visit in Australia, oldest but last discovered of the continents. With Australia passed, the Mason Cltyans consider themselves on their homeward journey. At present they are in Africa, with South America yet to be visited before their arrival home In early June.

AT SEA, March 1.--Tonight Van Loon lectures on "Australia, the jost Continent" and tomorrow we are scheduled to reach Sydney. We arrived on time 'at Sydney. Like Auckland and Wellington it is entirely English, built around one of .he largest and best harbors in the world. Like New Zealand it looks lew and fresh, its 1,500,000 population scattered around the bay on hills and bluffs facing the bay. Botany Bay where Cook landed in 1823 (or thereabouts!) is out about six miles from Sydney. This is the second largest English city in the world.

P E We are in receipt of a copy o "The North Western Line," a sma magazine, or magazinette, published by the North Western railroad. It was sent to us by Paul Gustafson, the greatest of all American railway freight and ticket agents, as well as one of the most handsome and accomplished. Paul calls our attention to a cartoon of Ripley's which is reproduced in the magazine and has reference to the only left handed railroad in America. "But," says Paul, "Ripley has nothing on us.

It's costing so much to Bring prosperity back that we're beginning to wonder if it's going to be worth it.--Los Ajigcles Times. Australia Oldest Continent. Australia is the oldest continent in the world but was the last to be discovered and exploited by the white race. It is fringed with high mountains which shut out the moisture from the interior. Three fourths of the Australian population are in the cities of Sydney and Melbourne. Our Rotary club entertained the officers of the Sydney club at dinner. We had a very delightful evening although I only took a glass of milk in place of the wines and liqueurs and rich menu furnished. Visited Cave at Night. We rode around the city and then drove over the Blue mountains to a wonderful cave about 140 miles from here. We stayed over to visit the cave at night and came back here the next day. The animal that looks like a small kangaroo was plentiful about the cave and hotel grounds and interested the people more than the natural scenery. We visited the monkey farm where they raise the little teddy bear monkeys. These excited the enthusiastic admiration of the women especially. There were also kangaroos, and in the zoological gardens were all kinds of strange animals and birds. Strange Plants Abound. Australia, along the coast where water is plentiful, is sub-tropical and has many strange and curious plants, trees and flowers not found elsewhere. The Jan. 27 issue of the Saturday Evening Post gives a vivid account of the tragic fate of the Koala, or little bears, and other strange animals of Australia. I think you would be interested reading it. We are back at the routine of daily life on the boat with fair weather, but still bracing and cool enough for ordinary spring suits, leceived no mail at Sydney but will irobably get letters at Batavia and Singapore. Am going to play bridge :onight with Doris in the tournament. There are plenty of good players and our chances of getting to :he front are small. Tiny Animals Eat From Hand. You would enjoy the unusual life of Australia. The rock wellabies are iick about the caves. They are miniature kangaroos--carry their young in a pouch and are tame enough to take food from your hand. The little bears are the most kind- y and curious animal I ever saw. We keep moving along with some rain, some wild waves and tumultuous seas, and again placid days. I just came from the Travel club where I had to speak to satisfy Cordova who is chairman. Tomorrow we reach New Guinea and stop during the forenoon at Pt. Moresby on Papua. New Guinea is the next to Greenland, the largest island in the world and is only partly explored. Headhunters and cannibals are found there. We will drive about the island for half a day and then sail on. Cut Off From News. We get very little news from home although there is a lecture every day on current events of the world. Have no idea when letters mailed on the boat will reach you but think they ought to reach their destination in about a month or five weeks. This country seems to be out of the world; the native inhabitants are primitive man untouched by civilization. I am told the natives of a large part of New Guinea work with stone age tools such as were used by all the aborigines before the advent of the white man. Someone tells the story of a young native of New Guinea who was taken to England to be educated and trained as a missionary. He came home but was not heard from; two years later inquiry of the chief disclosed that, when he told his peo they thought he was a liar and so beheaded him. Headed Into Hot Weather. The last three days have been hot and we will continue to have hot weather untl we leave Singapore and start for Africa. I do not like the heat although it is not bad on the boat where there is always a breeze from some quarter. I can't imagine ice and freezing weather when all we have is moist heat that keeps us perspiring day and night. PAPUA, March 9.--We arrived promptly at a beautiful harbor, anchoring about half a mile' from shore. The boat was surrounded with native canoes about 40 of them being outriggers with native wares for sale. From the dock we drove for two miles along the bay where there is a native village of about 2,000 persons. The houses, built over the water and supported by poles, have floors about 12 feet above the water and the occupants climb ladders. The people are somewhat like the Fijis, having kinky hair. Some wear clothes, some don't. Sees Remnant* of Heads. I saw many heads of men who h;«d been killed. It was formerly the proper thing to kill people outside the tribe and skin the head, scrape away the tissue and brain, stuff the head with some coarse fiber or clay and preserve it not only as a memorial of valor but as an ornament in the home. They no longer hunt heads and have abandoned cannibalism but are not very much advanced in the arts. Pigs seem to be much prized and the women often suckle the runt pigs. We spent the day ashore until 4 p. m. and then sailed away. I bought some bowls and trays made by the natives. Sailing Through Straits. ON SHIPBOARD, March 11 -Still sailing, sailing along through straits between innumerable islands and coral reefs. Today I saw the first boat outside of a harbor; the South seas must be little used these days. Tomorrow or next day we will land again for a half day excursion ashore. Lunch and dinner are served on deck; and with low-cut shirts and shorts we manage to be comfortable, with the thermometer somewhere about 90. Everybody on the boat seems to enjoy good health and to be as happy as could be expected. Church services were on the boat deck today so we postponed our shuffleboard and games until the afternoon. In New Guinea we saw primitive man as he developed without the interference of other peoples or civilizations. From now on we shall probably see the people gradually grading up to the Hindu or Indian. Later, in Africa, we will see the Negroid in his aboriginal state, modified by the white colonization in the last 75 years. Greeted by Natives. KALABAHAI, Island of Ahor-- This is one of the Lesser Sunda Islands, under Dutch rule. We sailed for 10 miles through a narrow inlet, which would furnish harborage for all the vessels of the world. A great gathering of native warriors and dancers from various islands was assembled here to greet and entertain ua. Probably 2500 to 3000 natives were at the rude landing. Five little boy bands of about 60 played on drums of wooden construction and flute-like instruments made of bamboo. The people are wild and primitive and they are mostly warriors. They carry shields on their backs and have great tufts of hair extending up a foot or so on a roll of cylinder- shaped headgear. They live '- Ralph Lloyd Jones, engaged in the general insurance business at 101 First street southeast, has for years been prominent in the work of the local Boy Scout organization, the American Legion and other civic activities. A veteral of the World war, Mr. Lloyd Jones is a charter member of the Clausen-Wordcn post of the Legion. On the night of the post organization 15 years ago, he was elected to the executive committee, on which he has remained since, with the exception of one year. He played a prominent part in the organization of the fourth district and was elected first district mander. Later he held the corn- office of commander of the Mason City post. Prominent in Legion. Mr. Lloyd Jones is alternate national committeeman of the Legion and a member of the executive committee of the cheminot national of the Forty and Eight. Ever since the organization of the joint operation of the community airport by* RALPH LLO10 JONES. the Legion and the Chamber of Commerce six years ago. Mr. Lloyd Jones has been a member of the operating board. For three years Mr. Lloyd Jones has been vice president of the North Iowa area of the Boy Scouts, of which organization he has been on the executive board since 1928. He was chairman of the finance committee in 1930-31 and has since held a large number of other positions connected with this activity. He also is an active member of the Kiwanls club and is a Mason. Attended Wisconsin. Mr. Lloyd Jones has operated the Ralph Lloyd Jones company here since 1920, previous to which time he was employed in local banks, as cashier of the City Trust and Savings bank before the war and after the war as assistant cashier of the Central Trust company. He came to Mason City in 1914 from Moline, where he was circulation manger for the Moline Dispatch. Reared near Madison, Wis., he attended the Wisconsin university, where he majored in political science and economy. He was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. Mr. Lloyd Jones, who is married and has three children, lives at .1104 Second Street southwest. tidal waves, and lies buried in the ocean depths. Their ancient tribal tales profess to tell of this land and of the wonderful enlightenment and knowledge of those people 50,000 years ago. Yesterday schools of porpoises and flying fish frolicked about the boat. Tomorrow we reach Bali and are ashore for two days, joining the boat again for Java. Warm weather, meals on deck, sleep with fans playing on you, bathing in pools and showers. The heat will continue until we reach Africa. The days are uneventful. It is a great place to just relax and do nothing. However, I keep up shuffleboard and some other deck sports for exercise. Winners in Amateur Night Show Announced Winners in the second of the weekly Amateur Night stage shows being presented Friday evenings at the Palace theater were first, a dancing team from Nora Springs Dorothy Yerkes and Dudley Palmer; second, Otto Toppenburg. local vocalist; and third, Devita Me- Cauley, tap dancer. Winners were decided by the applause of the audience. Another amateur night will be held Friday of next week, and it is the plan of the management to present all the winners at some later date in a uni' type stage show. Real Estate Transfers clouds-. All nature blue and gray, only thatched houses built above the ground or over the water. They wear meager clothing when they wear any. Really it seems shameful that other peoples should insist upon these primitive tribes wearing any sort of conventional dress or covering. The climate makes clothing unnecessary and the natives would be better off in their natural state. Most of the people were chewing Betel nuts and spitting blood and their teeth were red. A Study of Blue and Gray. We are sailing on, the blue sky overhead, the blue sea beneath and around us, with the gray reflection of transient seems to be _ . when land appeal's do we see the green carpet ,of trees and plants. The vivid colors of the jungle plants are only discerned when in close proximity. We have seen, in Borneo r.nd the islands this side of it, primitive man and his manner of living--his stone age tools, his bow and arrows, his various knives, hammers and spears, his dressor lack of dress, his grotesque hairdress, tattoomarks and ear and nose ornaments. Many of the warriors have the heads of enemies kept as marks of valor and much prized. Except along the coast, these mountain people still practice head-hunting and some are still cannibals.

R. Aboard Train. WASHINGTON, May 5 (.T)--Senate silver bloc leaders returned la Vashington today after a train con- crence with President Roosevelt confident that the chief executive s sympathetic to a legislative program providing for the nationaliza- ,ion of silver and a permissive purchase plan looking toward the creation of a 70-30 ratio with gold as primary money. Members of the group who traveled northward with the president as far as Baltimore, erpreased gratification at the results of the conference and unanimously predicted an agreement could be reached. The silver senators were so optimistic over the possibility of an agreement that they indicated the pending silver amendment in the senate would be laid aside Monday to await the outcome of further negotiations. By nationalization of silver, the 'overnment would take over ail Uie white metal--just as it did with gold. Under the permissive purchasing proposal, silver would be bought from other nations if the president desired, until the basis of currency issues was 70 per cent gold and 30 per cent silver. President Roosevelt believes a 7030 agreement is dependent upon international action and should not be undertaken by this nation alone. DOORS OF PRISON OPEN FOR JOYCE )es Moines Man Released in Minnesota, Arrested for Iowa Murder. STILLWATER, Minn., May 5. l/T) --Prison doors opened today for jawrence Joyce of DCS Moines, rcc after serving a sentence on an issault case, but he was arrested immediately for murder. Joyce was taken into custody to !ace a first degree murder charge jrowlng out of the killing of an. mva woman two years ago. His momentary freedom ended with the serving of a fugitive of Justice warrant from Wa.pello county, Iowa. One of Bandit Trio. Joyce, committed to Stillwater in 1928 from St. Paul to serve up to seven years, is alleged to have been, one of three bandits involved in the tilling of Edna Maud Shaw of Wa- jcllo county in an attempted robbery of the Shaw home, Feb. 0, 1932. Taken before Judge William D. Nolan in municipal court here after liis arrest, Joyce pleaded not guilty to the charge and waived prelim- .nary hearing. His bond was set at fOO.OOO. Judge Nolan ordered Joyce, who had been returned to the penitentiary here in 1932 after violating parole conditions, to be returned to jail on the murder warrant. Joyce was taken immediately to the Ramsey county jail. Extradition Hearing:. An extradition hearing before Gov. Floyd B. Olson will be held May 17 at. the request of Gov. Clyde L. Herring of Iowa, said E. J. Greir, Wapello county attorney, here as prosecutor with Sheriff C. E. Harding of that county. Joyce was sentenced to Stillwater in 1928. He was discharged in 3931 on condition that lie leave Minnesota. In 1932 he was picked up in Albert Lea and. returned to prison. Workers "Too Old" at 30 That men applying for work on the British admiralty's 51,500,000 project at Milford Havon, Wales, were told that they were too old if they were 30, was related to the Pembrokenshire County Council recently.
