M a s o n C i t y G 1 o b e - G a z e t t Farm Night Observed by Wesleyans Farmers' night was observed in connection with the regular monthly meeting of the Wesley men's club in Mason City Monday night, with Elmer Bowers and Fred Steffen as co-chairmen. The general subject was "What the Church Can Do for the Farmer and What the Farmer Can Do for the Church." Three farmer members of the church reviewed this question briefly. Said Vincent Mason, "Occasions like this will make the farmer WANT to go to church." Henry Pruin said in brief, "If members of the church SELL US YOUR HIDES WOOL Also Your . . . Scrap Iron Metal CARL STEM Ph. 470 1 1 1 6th S. W. would visit the farmer members, :hen all farmers would be made ;o feel at home." Said Harry Wolters, "The church can even promote good will between the Business man and the farmer; ;here is no way to get better acquainted than through the ihureh. With the problems fac- ng us in the future, it might be :hat the church will have tc ieep in more intimate contact with us." Marion Olson gave the principal address of the evening, saying in brief, "The fanner has learned a philosophy of dependence^--he is dependent upon the soil and the weather as to the success of his crops. The farmer has worked with the laws of God ever since creation. "The church consists of all types of businesses, working together for the general welfare of the community. It is a melting-pot-of common understanding. Farmers have learned tha' without love, understanding and fair play, you can never beat tb-- game." Mr. Olson concluded hi? talk with the suggestion, "Wher you give farmers definite responsibility in the church, ther it becomes their church." A travelogue, "Beauties of th" Wasteland" was shown by Da vie Olson. Refreshments were servec under the direction of Car Grupp and L. W. Wilkinson. At least 80 per cent of the egg cases next year' likely, will be made of fiber instead of wood.

Their objec- ive is to prevent rats from re* ieating the destruction of last ear, when they caused loss of eed and food conservatively es- imated at a million dollars. In calling for united rat con- rol action on all Iowa farms, larold fiunderson, extension en- omologist at Iowa State col- ege, says the destruction done y rats last year kept vitally needed food from r e a c h i n g ources where it was needed. .'hat must not happen again this rear, he warns. Under a program directed by he Iowa State college extension service, Gunderson will give rat control demonstrations in several parts of the state to inform 'armers on best methods of "ighting these rodents. Bulletins -n rat control are available from :ounty extension directors. Prizes of $550 in war bonds ?.re being offered to lowans who destroy the greatest number of _-ats between March 1 and 18 The number killed should be reported to county extension directors. FEDERAL AID POSSIBLE The war may bring "about an acceleration of the pre-war trend toward state and federal aid for education in the public schools, believes Prof. J. . Starrak of Iowa State college.
