? ! TWENTY-FOUR MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 30 1936 TOWN IN HANDS ; OF MUSICIANS It Takes State High School - Contest to Turn Io\ya City Upside Down. By DON DURIAN ~ Associated Press Staff Writer v IOWA CITY, UP--Like all university towns this city is almost inured to crowds and hilarity. Nothing short of a homecoming football game causes it to go off schedule for more than a day. Only the state high school music festival can turn it completely upside down. " The complete abandon of the music festival contestants is contagi- ous. Few native citizens or university students are completely immune to the carefree and uninhibited crowds of high school students swarming through the streets, playing on tin whistles, breaking sacks, shouting, and eating ice cream cones. At nono Wednesday the city had a population of 15,000, plus some 6,000 university students. Six hours later the population had increased 1,500. Thursday at least 3,000 more young musicians arrived. Special trains brought 500 contestants here last night from Boyden, Hull, Storm Lake, Sac City, Le Mars, Sheldon, Sioux Center and Sioux City. Seven special coaches will bring several hundred more today from Council Bluffs, Newton and Atlantic. Most of the others are coming in private cars and chartered buses. ° Before dismissing his 120 charges following their arrival here on the special train Wednesday night. rector M. T. Iverson of Central high, Sioux City, held a school of instruction. To impatient youngsters eager to begin circulating, he gave detailed instructions as to meeting places, practice schedules and conduct. One of the youngest, if' not the youngest contestant in the festival, is Donna Beth Rogers, clarinetist with the Sergeant Bluff band. She is 11, and in the sixth grade. Competing in the Class C band event Thursday morning were about 30 boys'from the Vinton school for the blind. They learned their music by having the notes dictated to them. Then the contest numbers were memorized. Because a few of the musicians can see enough to detect the shadow of a swinging baton, the band has a director. He is Ralph Young. The River room.of the Universal of Iowa memorial union has be come the treasure storehouse of th festival. More than 4,000 instru ments valued at several hundre thousand dollars were checked thcr last year. There is no rest for the official who run the festival. Prof. .Charle B. Righter, competition manage has ordered that all meals for him self and his staff be sent to hi headquarters. Prof. Bruce E. Mahan in charge of housing the contestant, takes his meals catch-as-catch-can and sleeps only after the last mu sician has been put to bed. Visitor From California. ORCHARD--Mrs. Ross Lang o Berkeley, Cal., is visiting her sister Mrs. Ed Sims, and husband. Mrs Anna Flynn of Minneapolis, Minn cousin of Pat and Ed, has also been visiting at their home.

RACING drivers will not take chances on any tire except a Firestone Gum-Dipped Tire in the grueling Indianapolis 500-Mile Race, where its greater , blowout protection has been repeatedly demonstrated; Ah Jenkins, the famous driver, used Firestone Gum-Dipped Tires on'his 3000-mile run over the Salt Beds of Utah, which he covered in 23'/i hours--a record of 127 miles per hour. He has driven more than a million miles on Firestone Tires, in every state in the union, on all kinds of roads, in all kinds of traffic, without tire failure or accident of any kind; What a tribute to safe; dependable; economical tire equipment. When you drive at today's higher speeds, your life and the lives of others are largely dependent upon the degree of safety built into the tires of your car. Take no chances--equip your car with new Firestone High Speed Tires today and be sure of the safest driving equipment monev can buy;; End of cord in Gum- End of cord from Dipped Tire shotting ordinary tire showing every fiber insulated unprotected cotton with liquid rubber fibers inside the cord The body of the Neu/ Firestone High Speed Tire is made front selected long-staple cotton dipped in liquid rubber, absorbing eight pounds of rubber in every hundred pounds of cotton.This patented Gum-Dipping process insulates every fiber- in every cotton cord; preventing internal friction which creates the heat so destructive to tire lifei and giving to the tire'added strength. This heavy; broadj traction and non-skid tread is held to the cord body of the tire with Two Extra Layers of Gum-Dipped Cordsi a patented construction; making the cord body and tread an inseparable unit. A leading university in 2350 tire tests has found that the new, scientifically designed Firestone High .Speed tread stops a car up to 25% quicker. Its super-traction and non-skid efficiency have aho'been proved in the famous Pike's Peak Race where for eight consecutive years it has been used"on the uit'nning cars.
