ftPRIL 4 1931 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE '5' 1931 LIKELY TO SET RECORD FOR MAIL BY PLANES Expectation Based on Large Figures for January Air Mileage. By RADFORD E. MOBLEY Staff Correspondent, WASHINGTON, April 4.--The year 1931 Is expected by the v post- office department to prove a record year in number of miles flown and mail carried by air mall planes, E. B. Wadsworth, department superintendent of the airmail service, stated here today after studying figures of the January receipts and service. This statement, which la particularly significant at this time because of the investigation being conducted at the department in relation to air mail costs and the preparation for extending some of the lines, was based upon the substantial Increase of the January airmail miles and receipts over the averages for the entire year of 1930. The Chicago-St. Paul, the Cleveland-Pittsburgh, the Chicago-San Francisco, and the New York-Los Angeles lines carried 183,484 pounds of mail in January, 1931, and flew 528,808 miles during the same month. The total number of miles flown by air mail planes thruout the country jumped to 1,770,406 from an average of 1,496,861 last year, while the amount of mail carried increased to 687,560 over last year's monthly average of 656,730 pounds. The average amount paid each month to carriers of air mail last year was 51,277.590, or 5222,085 less than that paid in January, department officials pointed out. The substantial increase revealed by the January reports from all phases of all lines operating in the air mail service justify the exten- sions.of old lines and the establishment of new lines scheduled- for this year,. Wadsworth said. In illustration, he said the department would extend the Cleveland-Pittsburgh line to Washington and the Cleveland- Nashville line to Texas-and several others within the next few months.

GIVE OR TAKE? rpHE world is made of those ·^ who give and those who take. Which profits most--the givers or the gimmes? What would you do' if you were Mary? HEAD "Love, Preferred" By Edna Robb Webster Author of "Joretta" and "Dad'e Girl" Beginning Tuesday, April 7 in the Globe-Gazette By VIRGINIA LEE "DEAR VIRGINIA LEE: Due to early training and environment I'm not good at making friends. I've a few acquaintances of marriageable age. It's unfair for me to date them and take up their time as I cannot marry due to financial conditions. "Being human, I get lonely. Indeed, I think it's chronic. Anyhow, I require diversion, someone peppy and congenial to take to shows occasionally. Imagine my gratitude when Pat who is 10 years younger, knows and admits she's too young to marry for four or five years, and lives only three and one-half miles away. ' "She is very charming, attractive, pleasant and sweet without being to dern good looking. My feeble, friendly advances, encouraged at first, were later repulsed. Alarmed at the prospect of losing this com- .rade,s altogether, I . deliberately ·planned to make'*her love me, not by declaring my love, of which she doubtless was already aware. No, no, I just let the idea seep In. "BUT, and here's the rub. I hadn't calculatefi on a woman's inalienable privilege to change her mind. Despite the fact no mention was made of anything that could directly or undirectly be misconstrued as a proposal, this little lady plans marriage pronto. "As I stated before, marriage is OUT. I have too much affection for my unborn children ever to wish them the tragedy of becoming my heirs. FRIENDLESS AND CONSERVATIVE MODERN." Aren't you a bit too modest my dear boy, about your unborn children? Seems to me youngsters might have a worse fate than being the heirs of the man who wrote the above letter. Possibly you know best, however. I'd not wish a dad who I had no sense of humor on any child. I As to the girl, how can you say you are not good at making friends when you made this attractive youngster love you, without much effort? It wasn't a very moral thing to do, was it? It would have been much more honorable to have let her go even if it had meant loneliness for you once more. However, your hint in the confidential postscript may somewhat mitigate that judgment. It all goes to show that there are ever so many people who are just as sure as can be that "they are never going to marry," but change their minds suddenly when they fall Superior Judge Lester Roth of Los Angeles faced a knotty problem when he was asked to authorize the. stunting of Adolphe Roome, Jr.'s, growth to prevent him from becoming an ungainly giant. Adolphe Is 14 years old, weighs 235 pounds and is over six feet tall. His father doesn't want him to jrrow any more, but his mother doesn't care about that so long as her son remains healthy and bright. And Adolphe doesn't mind the prospect of becoming a giant.

It is never safe to try to make such a person love you, feeling secure in their protestations of celibacy. Your only fair course now is to tell Pat as gently as possible that you have no intention of marrying anyone, and tell her why. She's young and will probably get over her love affair. And for yourself, why don't you divide your attentions among several of your marriageable friends until such time as your finances improve ? MAC: Write to the girl, Mac, and see how she feels about matters by this time. She may miss you as much as you miss her. If not, you will have to make the best of It and try to find another girl friend.

Three-Year-Old Begins to Play With Children; Needs New Type Material By ALICE JUDSON PBALE. During his third year a distinct change occurs In the child's play. He is no longer interested merely In mechanical manipulation nor in the acquisition of new bodily skills. He begins to invent games of make- believe, he dramatizes a little. He pushes his train along the floor to the accompaniment of ap- proprlate sounds. He fondles his toy dog or his doll in a truly protective, affectionate manner, talking to them a to him. Until now he has enjoyed playing near other children, but he has not actually played with them. Now, however, he actually seeks them and a group of two or three three- year-olds may really play together for an hour or more. With this change in play interests, a need for new play materials arises. The three-year-old likes his nest of boxea, his pails and balls, his pull toys, his wagon as much as ever, but he needs something more. A good set of large floor blocks is absolutely necessary. Packing coses and grocery boxes out In the yard lend themselves especially well to his new games. Miniature housekeeping toys, tea party dishes, dolls and dolls' beds are needed. Trains and boats are really trains and boats to him now, and with them he Invents all sorts of games. At this stage it is as important as ever for adults to refrain from telling: the child how he should play. He is not to be told what to build with his blocks or how to build It. His housekeeping is not to be criticized for its topsy turvy arrangements. When father and mother are Invited to a tea party, they must accept their small son's hospitality as they find it without succumbing to the temptation of suggesting Improvements. Lenten Season.
