MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE SATURDAY, APRIL I, 1939 V ALINEO'PIPE Stick to the Pipe--Let the Smoke Blow Where It Will By T. PIPE APRIL Greetings to you April dear, IWe're glad once more to have you here. yfe hope you'll do your best to bring, At least a little bit o£ spring. .M- A --^--' When the ancients were re- vistnff the well known calendar, they were sort of up against it. They did all right from May to March but there was a space between March and May that had them blsoned. A space that was neither winter or spring, fish or fowl, so to speak. So they just stuck April in the gap and ».=» -went home feeline they had nude, the best of a bad situation. The new feature, "By- the Window," in the Globe-Gazette by Frederick B. Schaffer, is very interesting. His article about the horned larks particularly so. We have enjoyed this alert, active bird of the fields for some 40 years and in that time have met but few who knew its name. Ask almost any person its name and he will tell you it is some kind of a field sparrow. It has been our experience that the most of them go "' farther south than northern Iowa for the winter. We have seen them as far south as Missouri. But by February they begin to flock back to Iowa. However, there are several sub-species, some of which nest in the far north, -which complicates their life history to a certain extent. --·-- Speaking of birds, we notice the mamma robins have arrived and are creating the usual disturbance in robinland which occurs v?Hh their advent. The males come a couple of weeks . ahead of the females and get along right peacefully but when the latter arrive the trouble starts. We have seen two males fight over a' good looking female until they were completely exhausted, the while she sat .on a limb preening herself waiting to mate up with the winner, if any.

[Backstage in Iowa Politics lowans' Attention Is Called to Experience of Pennsylvania in Providing Increase in Liquor Tax for Greater Revenue V Expresses Disappointment Postponement of her one-time dream to "set the stage afire," she ,, disclosed Thursday, was her only \ W ill be the leader, disappointment in taking over the task of official hostess. She majored in dramatics while attending Syracuse university. Now, "there's-no stage anymore. I gave up my hobbies/' Instead, she has thrown her enthusiasm to her new job, meeting with confidence assignments that range from entertaining at the governor's mansion to posing for photographers beside roses named for her at the Philadelphia flower- show. Doesn't "Talk Shop" She finds little time to talk of politics, which she doesn't like, and says her father "doesn't talk shop much" at home. "I don't see much of dad," she said, "we meet at dinner. Then he works until late at night, 11:30 or 12, in his study." After three months, she has de- ded "I like it very well here." She sums it up now with a mile and the comment: "1 take things in stride--come hat may." Romance? She says she doesn't even "go eady." M. Black has announced a Butler county teachers' meeting to be ield at the Legion hall in Allison Saturday, April 8. Guest speaker will be Mrs. Rob Roy Cerney of Mason City.

Those present were Misses Clarine Johnson, Ella Jensen, Ardis Voight, Anna Ladd, Dorothy Brooks, Stella Peterson, Dorothy Weaver and Betty Holdcroft. Anyway we did not have to shovel walks after last Monday's snow. The sun took it off. Which tickled our son, who usually has to take it off, immensely. _-- A -Further, in regard to Fred's and Earl's justly famous editorial controversy. We wonder / idld anyone ever see a republic-can editorial in a democratic paper. An advertiseir--i,/ 1 .from- the First National ban^-avtvises among Bother things in regard to financing the buying of a new car: "A good credit record and security on the car is all that is required." Which for some reason reminds v j of what someone said about a _.ate- ment some writer made regarding Kansas. Not that the foregoing is all that the infernal regions need to make them more attractive, but a person so equipped could pretty near get money anywhere. At least' anywhere there was money to get ^ We met up with another man from that dear old Cincinnati loway this week. He is Duane L. Harris, district man for the Federal Hardware and Implement Mutuals and associated insurance companies. He lives in Mason City. Mr. Harris learned of us and our antecedents from our good friend, Mr. Robinson, justly famous Rock Island agent at Kcnsctt. ' (By FRANK NYE, JU.) (Iowa Daily Press Association) DES MO1NES--With the house bill placing a 10 per cent special sales tax on liquor purchased,"at state-owned stores now awaiting action in the senate, it is well to note the experience of another state along this line. It should be borne in mind that the purpose of the 10 per cent special lax--tha( is one of the main purposes--was to raise more revenue lor state government, * * * PENNSYLVANIA Pennsylvania placed a 10 per cent tax on its liquor effective al during 1938 and sales slumped 9.26 \-er cent from 1937, cutting off much of the anticipated in creased revenue. Figures sho\ that 11,763,522 gallons of dis tilled spirits were sold in tha state in 1937, before the tax was imposed, compared with 10,674,548 gallons in 1938 after the tax was in effect. This is a drop in sales of 1,088,974 gallons. * * = IOWA Iowa's state-owned stores sold 1,470,538 gallons of distilled spirits in 1937 as compared with 1,668.019 gallons in 1938--a gain of 197,481 gallons or 13.4 per cent. It is nothing more than a mattei- of conjecture whether more revenue would bs brought into Iowa through the 10 per cent special sales tax. emoving the highway patrol from lis jurisdiction--and that they reused his order to discharge al democratic job-holders immedi ately. # o a ·\PPOINTMENTS With several key appointment n the offing it is small wonde ihat -so many "I know who'll ge the appointment" ai flying about the statehousc an vicinity.

FORGOTTEN? Republican's forgotten man in Iowa, thus far at least, is James Pearson, Shenandoah's r a d i o "newsboy" who might have upset the applecart had he run for congress from the seventh district on the independent ticket. He was to lave been taken care of by party jigwigs for his decision not to run ndependently and it is the understanding that district leaders still plan to see that he is rewarded. Like all men from that dear old Cincinnati loway. Mr. Harris is tall, dark, handsome and extremely easy to like. We spent a mighty pleasant hour with him and hope j we may get to know him better. Ulr. Harris also informed us that Mr. toomis of the well and favorably known Globe-Gazette had also lived in the foregoing mentioned famous Iowa commonwealth. Which fact no doubt accounts to a certain extent for his present popularity and good looks. "MIKES" A total of 27 microphones connected with a loud speaker sys- .em have been sprinkled around the senate at a cost of approximately $1,200. Only two senators used the "mikes" the first day they were available and they have been virtually ignored ever since Representatives, who installed a loud speaking system earlier ii the session, make good use o theirs in the more crowded lowe chamber. CONVENTIONS Pearson, it will lie recalled, is the man who led the republican ticket for congress in the primary last June but lacked 35 per cent of the vote and lost out in convention to Representative Ben f . Jensen of Exira, now serving his first term. In 1932 · Pearson led the democratic ticket for congress but was defeated in convention by third-place-in-the-primary-voting HAMPTON -- N. W. Beebe, manager of tire Beebe Lumber company since 1924, has announced his retirement from that favor of his grandson, E. M. Beebe. He will continue to take an active interest in the company. Mr. Beebe is one of Hamptons pioneers, coming here from Illinois 84 years ago when the population of the town was only 600. The first nine years of his residence here he conducted a hardware store in the building now occupied by the Peete Hardware company. He was later assistant cashier in the Lutimer and Inglis bank. In 1888 he purchased the Gray lumber yard and has been interested in the lumber business since that date..In 1896 he purchased an interest in the Citizens State bank and upon its organization as the Citizens National bank in 1906, became vice president holding that position until the moratorium in 1932. Mr. Beebe lias also taken an active interest in politics. He wus elected mayor of Hampton in 1885 -'8G and later served two terms as county treasurer, taking office in 1892, the year the present court AMERICAN CRYSTAL SUGAR CO.
