MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MAY 7 | 1934 MASON CITY OBSERVING HIGHWAY SAFETY_WEEK, MAY 642 GARAGE MEN AND GAR DEALERS TO ASSIST IN DRIVE Highway Safety Inspection Stations Established in Mason City. Law enforcement officers, civic organizations and the entire gamut of dealers catering to the automobile trade are uniting in the observance of highway safety week, May 6 to 12. Highway safety week was designated by Mrs. Alex Miller, secretary of state, in the hope of bringing closer the goal of the department to reduce automobile accidents in Iowa hy 50 per cent. The campaign is receiving co-operation from motor clubs, civic or ganizations, school and church units, automobile dealers, garages, accessory merchants, service stations, ex-service men's organization and the press. More Lives Lost In pushing this campaign attention is called to the fact that more lives were lost on the highways of the United States during the World war than were lost by the American troops on the battlefields of France during the same period. That there is no good reason for accidents is the contention of those who are at the head of this statewide drive to reduce the loss in human life and property. Faulty headlights, windshield wipers, brakes, wheel alignments and other mechanisms on the automobile are the case of numerous deaths each year. Another cause is careless driving. Taking Lead. In the belief that greater familiarity with the causes of highway accidents will motivate automobile drivers in taking · immediate steps toward avoiding and eliminating them, Mason City automobile dealers, garages and establishments selling accessories are taking the lead in making known the danger ciis factors of streeet and highway traffic. Mason City motorists arc urged by these dealers to participate in this movement by complete observation of traffic rules and regulations. Motorists can further participate fa the campaign by driving into one of the offical highway safety campaign stations listed below and Save the safety appliances on tneir cars checked free.

"GLY-CAS PROVED TO BE MEDICINE OF REAL MERIT' Declares Mr. Zwerneman; Nothing Able to Help Him Before, Indigestion and Constipation Now E n t i r e l y Ended. Never, was there a more highly praised or publicly endorsed medicine ever introduced in Mason City before, than this new Gly-Cas. Hundreds laud it as one "REAL" medicine that of the modern day--Perhaps explains for the praise this Property loss as a result of the dynamite explosion in the port of La Libertad, Salvador, now is estimated at $500,000, and reconstruction has been started. MB. CHARLES ZWEBNEMAN new remedy receives wherever it is introduced. Read what Mr. Charles Zwerneman, Lyle, Minn,, (just north of here) said recently at the Michael Drug Co., 5 So. Federal Ave., in telling of his remarkable experiences with this new remedy: "Gly-Cas is a medicine that cannot be given too much praise," said Mr. Zwerneman. "It has been put to severe test on my case and easily proved its merit. For 15 years I had been bothered with constipation and Indigestion and there seemed to be nothing I could get to do me any good. I tried them all with the same results--but now I just finished my third box of Gly-Cas and my health troubles are entirely ended. This new remedy is the first medicine I have ever taken that I felt sure I could recommend to others---but I feel sure of Gly-Cas for it gave me just the results I had been wanting. H there are any neighbors or friends wishing to know further of what Gly-Cas has done for me just call Phone No, 55, Lyle, Minn., and I will be glad to tell them." The most stubborn cases of stomach, liver, kidney, bowel, blood troubles, rheumatism, neuritis, nervousness yield to the action of this new remedy.
