MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 1939 HUNDREDS VISIT EXHIBIT HERE ON DAY OF OPENING What's New in Homes Attractively Displayed in 30 Colorful Booths "This way, folks--see the mammoth tooth dug from a Mason City gravel pit!" "See the latest tiling in a garbage can, ladies and gentlemen. It makes the garbage disappear like magic!" "Hurry over and feast your eye-; on the plug cap that blew off from a water main Wednesday morning, causing a water shut-off in the city for a short time;" There are no spielers at the Mason City Building and Home Furnishings show. If there were, they would be barking about such objects as mentioned in the foregoing lines--and more--because it's all a part of the seventh annual exposition at the high school gymnasium. No Honkeytonk But there is no honkeytonk, no revolving bar, no foolishness. No capers are necessary to get the people interested in the trends of tomorrow. The hundreds o£ persons who were the first to move in on the three-day exposition Wednesday and early Thursday caine to see. for themselves what's new in home building, modernizing, appliances, furnishings and financing.'And it's all there--in 30 colorful booths. Whether it's a home of frame construction, brick or concrete, that the prospective builder is considering, the answer to all his questions is found at the show. He can pick out his foundation, his roof, his window casements, inside cabinets, paint, plumbing and what not? Then he can step to one of three or four other booths and arrange the financing of the structure. They Discuss Plumbing Heating systems in oil, gas anci coal ara displayed for the prospect's perusal. Air conditioning units for the home are being demonstrated. The plumbing situation can be discussed. And furnishings -- everything from the laundry room to the attic. It's all on display at the high school gym. There are enough electric refrigerators on parade at the show to furnish an entire block of homes. And enough washing machines to clean up a .cellar full of dirty clothes. Insulation is one of the prominent features of the show. At least two firms are demonstrating hoiv the insulation material can be blown into walls'of the home. Nor is the garage forgotten. If it's overhead.doors that (he prospect is interested in, the show is the place to see them. Among the newest innovations to be seen are a stove with a glass oven door, a stove with a grill attachment and a stoker with hydraulic transmission. Finance Firms on Job Banks and finance companies are on the job with literature to explain how easy it is to finance new homes, modernization and the installation of new equipment and furnishings. By far the loveliest corner in the bright exposition is the spot that abounds with Easter liilics, snapdragons, ferns and other flowers. In the center is a table set with fancy glassware and appointed with bright tapers. Anyone who becomes lost in the wilderness of modern ideas can regain his bearings by getting in touch with the information booth at the north central part of the gymnasium, where officials of the North Iowa Builders' Exchange and Chamber of Commerce employes will cheerfully offer the right directions. The show continues through Friday, opening at 1:30 daily and closing at 8:30 o'clock. High School Singers Entertain at Meeting of Townsend Club No. 3 Miss Ellen Smith and a group of her high school singers entertained at the weekly meeting of Townsend club No. 3 at the PG. E. auditorium Wednesday evening. The program, which delighted those in attendance, included a mixed group in songs, a girls' trio, a mixed quartet, a girls" quintet and a boys" sextet. Next week's meeting will be held on Friday evening. 1,500 Look at Home Styles BUS CRASH SUIT ENDS IN DECISION AGAINST WIDOW Judge Rules Bus Driver Not Employe of School District at Crash One of the suits resulting from :he bus crash here in October, 1937, came to an end Wednesday with a- decision by Judge T.

The decision of the industrial commissioner was appealed to the district court here by Mrs. Simpson but Judge Beardmore upheld the decision of the state official.

GAIUS G. ATKINS "Stir Up the Fire" Thursday, March 30. Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up (rekindle) the gift of God, which is in thee . . . Read If Timothy 1:3-6. A hearth without a fire on it, is pretty dismal. But light the fire and everything is changed. No wonder Paut applies the analogy to the ways and qualities of life. So many possible gifts and graces are like unkind led fires. They were meant to burn high, glow with light, warm the lonely with fellowship as do household fires, get good work done as do boiler and Xorge fires, and we let them burn so low--or go out- Fear smothers them, selfishness turns them into smoke, the cares of this world mantle them with ashes. Stir up the fire! But be sure it is love's fire, duty's fire. j an intensity of goodness, zeal for the well-being of others. The trouble with our world now is that v.-e have been stirring up the wrong kind of fire. Prayer: Almighty and All Merciful Father of all Spirits and Author of al! Good, forgive us our slothfulness in goodness and our dull use of the gifts and graces with which Thou hast endowed us. "Blow, winds of God, awake and blow The mists of earth away." In His Name Whose Spirit can transform and enkindle our spirits Amen.

To the man and woman poring o\ : er blue prints of a new home, or to the family planning modernization of an older house, these developments suggest interesting possibilities. Infinite Variety Light, in its most advanced artistic expressions, ma" now be found flowing from built-in ceiling panels, from the tops of doors or windows, from windows in in- M'de walls . . . and from other surprising places! We are beginning to discover t h a t light holds many possibilities for new decorative treatment in the home. Like the sculptor's clay, it is flexible. It can be blended into the decorative scheme of a room. Take, for example, a small li- brary or den, as here illustrated, where spaciousness is created by clever planning. A mirrored wall behind the lounge reflects the opposite side of the room. The grained walis have a stream-lined appearance and the bookshelves at the left are built-in. Diffused Light Is Smooth Stepping right in line with the design of the room is the built-in lighting in the ceiling. It takes up no additional space. A single metal trough (seen again in the mirror) conceals the bulbs. The light is directed to the rounded ceiling surface above the trough and reflected smoothly down on the entire length of the lounge. Never, never should abundance of light be sacrificed for decorative effects in locations where it is needed for eye tasks. There is rio sacrifice here. The lighting on the required amount, well-diffused and without glare. Glass Bricks Cleverly Used Even from a reclining position on this lounge, a person does not subject his eyes to harmful glare. Highly pleasing, too, in this room, is the lighted glass brick window which may be seen reflected in the mirror! Though rcnliy an inside wall, the window suggests the out-of-doors. Back of the window is a small space- between it and a second wall. Here on the floor are placed reflectors. These send some of their light up to the wall behind the window, to be reflected back on the glass blocks. They also send some of their light directly to the window. Silhouetted against the window are a plant and books . . . graceful A P R I L FOOL and EASTER CANDIES Martha's Candy Shop 25 West State TOWNSEND RECOVERY PLAN Learn About It Miss Roberta Schmale, National Lecturer Y.W.C.A.
