CONSERVATION PROJECTS TO BE COMPLETED MERE Here In Mason City WILL FINISH DAM BEFORE WORKERS GO TO PflULLINA Deputy WPA Administrator Assures Dr. F. J. Colby ' Work to Go On. In the face of the fact that the barracks are being torn down in preparation for transferring the WPA work camp north of the city to Paullina, conservation projects under way on the streams in this vicinity are to be completed. Dr. F. J. Colby, Forest City, member of the conservation commission, has been assured by the Works Progress administration at Des Moines. "I assure you that we will make every effort to organize our WPA projects both in Cerro Gordo and Worth counties to the extent that none of the work started will be left in an incomplete state," said A. E. Michel, deputy administrator of the WPA' in Iowa, in a letter to the Forest City commis- ciation to Dr. Colby "for the splendid co-operation which you have given us in this construction work and hope that all of the work undertaken will prove a source of satisfaction to all parties interested in having same built." Dr. Colby, visibly pleased at the assurance that the Cerro Gordo and Worth county projects are to be completed, expressed his appreciation to the sportsmen and public in general for their co-operation.

Ph. 331 the camp at Mason City and the wide area over which the projects are spread was expressed by Mr. Michel as the reason for the transfer to Paullina. Cost Hiffh Here. "This camp has btfcn located at Mason City since it was first established," he said. "The procurement division, as well as those in charge of the camp, have attempted to obtain a reasonable lease on the tract of land occupied as a camp site only, not including the farm land which is part of the same farm. "We are paying at present $200 a month rental for the Mason City site, whereas the site "at Paullina will cost us nothing as it is located in a state park. I have been advised by our work camp director that we have spent an average of $328 a month on trucks used in connection with the present projects. "The project at Paullina includes the construction of an earth fill dam with a concrete spillway. There is also considerable bank work involved. This .fact will, therefore, eliminate most of the present truck costs. The matter of supervision also is involved in the two projects. In Several Places. "The \york carried on from the Mason City camp at present is in several different places with the result that the men are spread out in .their;sworfc .within a. radius of 50 or 60 miles at times. This is necessitated because of the fact that it is not economically possible to use any great number of men efficiently on any one site where a low head dam is being constructed, the most satisfactory crew being about 20 men. It is, therefore, impossible to give them good supervision within our limitations. "The work to be done at Paullina is, therefore, much more adaptable to a work camp than the scattered work now being carried on from the Mason City camp. "Our charge for electricity at the Mnson City camp has at times run more than $125 a month. This item alone has cost an average of $80.15 a month over the last 13 month period at Mason City. These items alone will amount to a saving of over $600 a month and when viewed from the standpoint of the type of work which we will do at Paullina, will, I believe, justify moving the camp. Outlined Plans. "Four months ago when you discussed the work to be attempted from the Mason City camp, you had outlined to me four dams on the Shell Rock river between Rock Falls and Plymouth. You also had in mind one low head dam above and two below Fertile in Worth county. At the same time you suggested one north of Plymouth on the Shell Rock. "I have been advised by the conservation commission that at least one of the dams near Fertile canno 1 . be built due to the flooded condition that will be created by its construction. It is my understanding that one head dam has been started below Fertile which is approximately 80 per cent complete. "Instead of the four dams originally contemplated between Rock Falls and Plymouth, five have been started, one of which is a seven foot head and all of which have been completed except one which I understand is approximately BO to 90 per cent complete. "I understand further that the one east of Manly has just been started. When these are completed, it will constitute more work than was originally outlined. "I have been advised by the work camp director that with favorable weather conditions the three dams not completed should be fairly well along by the time the camp is moved." , Expresses Appreciation. Mr. Michael expressed appre- feet high. Log crib and constructed with boulder rip-rap upstream and downstream and on either bank. Dam No. 3 between Plymouth and.Rock Falls--136 feet wide, 5 feet high. Log crib construction, boulder rip-rap up and downstream and on either bank.

Plymouth rearing pond -- 160 feet of 4 inch pipe to maintain the same water level in the pond as in the Shellrock river. B.P.W. Club Hears Talk at Meeting R. B. Irons Describes Visit to New Orleans for Convention. R. B. Irons, .superintendent of Mason City schools, was the speaker at the current events luncheon of the Business and Professional Women's club Thursday noon at the Cerro Gordo hotel, OLD AXIOMS ARE CHALLENGED IN TALK BY BISHOP Dr. Oxnam Declares Fear of Insecurity Must Be Removed. "Self interest is the only motive by which you can drive people to real achievement." That is a pagan axiom and it shouM be challenged, Di. G. Bromley Oxnam, Omaha resident bishr.p of the Omaha area of the Methodist Episcopal church, told the Kiwanis club Thursday noon in H(,;el Hartford. Dr. Oxnam, formerly president of Depauw university, was in Mason City for an address Thursday night at the opening of the North Central Teachers association convention. Dr. Oxnam told the Kiwanians that axioms are statements which are generally accepted, but they should be challenged. As points under that of \self interest, he questioned another axiom: That we can produce efficiently but haven't the ability for effective distribution. In this connection, he said that increased efficiency in pr duction had not brought lower prices to consumers but overcapitalization and increasing of concentrated power. "Must Remove Insecurity." "Can we remove the barriers of economic imperialism and provide an unimpeded outlet to a world market" was the second point to be considered by Dr. Oxnam. Then he went on to, "Can we remove the fear o£ insecurity that lurks in the nation among the workers." In explaining the latter, he told of cling as arbitrator in a dispute ased on the introduction o£ a new nachine which he knew would irow men out of work, men who ould find nothing else to do. "Can we protect the American tandard of living against the low- r standard of other countries of ne world?" Bishop Oxnam con- inued, with specific reference to mpending difficulties in the Pa- ific. Perhaps there is a way to ipen sources of raw materials for dissatisfied nations to permit them o raise their standards of living n accordance with their level of population. "Vagabond King" Roles Selected for Teachers Final Showing of Romantic* Operetta to Be Friday at High School. Teachers attending the North Central Teachers association convention have something to look forward to Friday night in the colorful and romantic presentation of Rudolph Friml's operetta, "Vagabond King," by the glee clubs of the Mason City high school, at its final showing at the high school auditorium. No only will they have something in musical enjoyment to look forward lo, but will have a real insight as to what may be accomplished in three weeks--for this was the time allotted to this ambition production, one which even speaking on the convention^ of recent national superintendents which he attended. in New Orleans. The theme of the convention was the interpretation of education- in regard to democracy, Mr. Irons said, and it was planned to point the way education can promote, protect and develop democracy with the idea that the schools are the only agency whose job is to do that. Live in Democracy. "The thought that children must be trained so that they can live in a democracy and will want to live no where elce was expressed in the convention," Mr. Irons said. "Democracy depends on what is done in the schools because it depends on the citizens who are trained in the schools. "The schools arc not through when they have taught the child They must provide some way to instruct the adult. The voter must be educated in the ways of government. While many people think that school is a nice place for children, but that it is childish, the belief of the convention was that there is nothing childish about Education received in COMPLETE Speedometer and Wiper Service Central Auto Electric Co. 15 Isl St. S.

If democracy fails in the United States, it will fail elsewhere and with its failure comes the fall of civilization." Southern Hospitality. Mr. Irons spoke of the hospitality of the southern people as expressed in their reception of the convention visitors. He describee a breakfast given under the famous dueling oaks in New Orleans at which 8,000 persons were served. He spoke of a pageant presented by the New Orleans schoo children, depicting the history o the south by dances, and he described a ball given for the visitors Mr. Irons spoke of the beauty of the south at the present time and told of some of the interesting places in New Orleans which h visited.

"Moral right must learn lo bow o economic necessity," according o Bishop Oxnam. "For many years the steel industry insisted that it ;could not exist with its common laborers working only 12 lours a day. Now it has met prob- ,ems with intelligence and tact and it is still making a profit." Dr. Oxnam said that conflicts develop generals but not statesmen. For this reason, labor has lad to develop leaders who are generals. But statesmen of labor ire needed, such as have been Bought forth in England, to aid '.ri intelligent solution of problems. The last axiom Dr. Oxnam challenged was "War is inevitable." Europe seems to be moving forward to the precipice. If a strug- ;le develops, and lasts long enough, he predicted, it will cease lo be on vertical lines, but on horizontal lines. In other words, instead of nation against nation, the lower groups in the combating nations will realize they have more in common than along national lines. That is not the American or democratic idea, he stressed, and he hoped that American public opinion could be created lo keep out of that situation. War Settles Nothimj. 'I hope that we learn not to settle problems by war--which never settles anything," he concluded, "but settle them with intelligence." Earl Allen, new manager of the fifteenth century underworld of Paris and the court of Louis XI, is another of a dong list of high school musical achievements to the credit of Miss Ellen Smith, s^p visor of the vocal department of the school, and her assistants, Miss Marjorie Smith, director of the theater orchestra, Miss Mary Sherman, history instructor, and Evelyn Thomas, in charge of dances. For two successive nights and one matinee the "Vagabond King" has played to large audiences, with a number of leading roles being cast double, with one actor playing one performance and the successor the following performance.
