MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MAY 4 ·§ 1936 WINE ? ( I T '. fo- li w I IT; y in !U SPRING BEST TIME FOR RESOLUTIONS, AND TO START ANEW ENVIRONMENT TO LIVE IN SHOULD BE MADE BETTER Improvement Starts in Home But Should Continue to All Parts of City. "I can't see why New Year's day is placed where it is," said a local resident. "From Dec. 31 to Jan 1, is just from one winter's day to another one just like it. We group about it a sentimental notion of beginning new things--we resolve and resolve, but there is no change of season to make these resolutions seem timely." In the spring it's different, he continued. When the snow disappears, when the film of green appears we know the time for a new view of things has come--and it's our job to meet this time of bright promise. This thought fits in exactly with what is meant by a campaign for cleanliness and beautification, and it should not be difficult to arouse the interest and get the co-operation of people in such a program. The idea back of the campaign Is to emphasize the need and awaken the desire for better living environments. It does not imply that the home must be a new one or a larger one. We do not quit trying because it is not a new home. The old home may be made brighter, more livable, cleaner, more wholesome; the family happier and healthier. There are many ways. This is surely the time for New Year's resolutions. While the clean-up, paint up and fix up campaign belongs within the home, it reaches far beyond it, and when you think that for twelve years there has been a nation wide effort to stimulate -an interest in "cleaning up" and that there has been hearty response year after year in thousands of cities and towns in the United States, you can get an idea of its extent. The story of the expanding interest is almost unbelievable. This growth in interest has not come from the leadership of those who only believe io the idea--great as that belief may be -- it comes from definite, concrete measurable results in community conditions and citizenship. Shower Baths May Be Bought as Unit With the approach of the hot summer months, many home owners may be contemplating the addition of a shower bath to the home. There are several concerns now offering a complete, self-contained shower cabinet that may be set up on any kind of floor and against any kind of wall which will economically solve the question of shower bath comfort. The "ready-to-use" shower cabinet is simple to assemble. These shower cabinets are completely equipped in a large variety of colors and. finishes. PRETTY PENNIES ELMIRA, N. Y.--Treasurer John L.

The project represents a co-operative movement on the part of business and civic leaders of Newark, Ohio, and was sponsored by the Junior Chamber of Commerce of that city. The photo (upper left) shows the original structure, which stood for almost 100 years in an outmoded section of the city. It was placed on rollers and moved to the courthouse square where it was stripped of unsightly features and prepared for modernizing (upper right). The picture (lower left) shows volunteer workers busy on the modernization project. The new house is beginning to take form. The fourth photo shows the completed Cape Cod cottage, strictly American in style and embodying all modern conveniences. All materials, labor and furnishings were voluntarily supplied by citizens of Newark. An indication of the interest shown in the "Goodwill Cottage," as it was named, is indicated by attendance figures for the first 12 days following completion. During that time 10,000 people from 165 cities and 22 states Inspected the charming little cottage. Miss Graves' Thesis on A. E. s Mysticism Praised Approved for Second' Master's Degree at U. S. C. A research study of 264 pages entitled--"A. E.: His Seer-ship and. Mystical Tenets as Revealed in His Prose, Poetry and Painting"--done by Miss Elizabeth H. Graves last summer has merited the approval of the committee for a second Master of Arts degree in the graduate college of the University of South- in California, according to an airmail communication received Sunday by Miss Graves from Dr. John D. Cooke. head of the department of English and chairman of her committee. Miss Graves' first master's was taken in the school of education of U. S. C. in June 1932, while she received her bachelor's degree in the NOW IS GOOD TIME to have your Furnace looked over for needed repairs. We have new 1936 display.

Doctor Cooke wrote April 30, "The other two members of your committee have approved your thesis. I am reading it at my leisure and am enjoying- it very heartily. It is an excellent piece of work and very convincing, I think, as regards Russell's devotion to mysticism. I shall make sure that your thesis gets to the graduate school office on time." Doctor Cooke is keenly interested in the study ot the mystic field and urged Miss Graves to make a study of three mystics, one of which would satisfy the masters' and the other two, the doctorate. Miss Graves is considering a study of the younger mystic disciples of A. E. Completed Research. Miss Graves began the study of the mystical doctrines of the late A. B. or George William Russell in February, 1935, after having spent two summers in the study of mysticism in general and having completed all course work in Anglo Saxon and other required subjects. She completed her research and the development of A. E.'s mystical tenets as revealed in his prose, poetry and tainting last August Her tentative REPAIRS REMODELING available through us under new plan It lack of i. convenient source for a. loan has prevented you from repairing or remodeling your house, now you can go ahead.

The two weeks holiday vacation was devoted to having the thesis typed by Miss Annie Martin and to proof-reading. However, the marking of all the Sanskrit terms had. to be done by hand, and Miss Graves' break of her right wrist in January prevented her doing it until spring vacation when the three copies of the thesis and the 1,000 word abstract were expressed to Doctor Cooke. According to correspondence that Miss Graves had with the congresi sional library and many libraries in the United States as well as those of Dublin and London, this is the first study made of the mystic, A. E., .in the English language. Purposes oc Study. Miss Graves states her purposes as follows: · "To recount those visions of the seer, A. B., that mark him a mystic. "2. To develop through a thorough examination of his prose and poetry his mystical tenets and their sources and to set them forth along with illustrative examples from his writings. "3. To trace bis development as a painter and to point out tile mystical element in his paintings through an examination of his essays on art and artists, his late landscape paintings, as well as his early pictures of a purely visionary type, and the criticisms concerning his canvases. "4. To set forth that the Hermetic society, the oldest theosophical body in Ireland, was a vital factor in the evolution of Anglo- Irish literature and to show that A. B. was · the mystical link between the members of that society and a veritable school of rising Dublin poets. "5. A. B. went in quest of reality behind the illusions of this world, and of the great unity beyond the- diversity of things. Since he has had spiritual experience and is the soul of Ireland more than any other living individual, it is, without doubt, wise to try to understand his philosophy of life and the mysticism that underlies his works. If in that attempt there is brought about a clearer comprehension of the great mystic, prose-writer, poet, and painter, as well as a realization of that wish expressed by him on April 16, 1935. in a letter to the investigator of this study-- 'I would like to believe that the ideas in my poetry and prose were of some value'--the effort will not have been in vain," Mystical Tends Listed. "A. E. and His Scership" constitutes chapter one or 32 pages of Miss Graves' study, while chapter two of 163 pages is given over to the evolution of A. E.'s mystical tenets which are as follows: Aspiration, inspiration, ecstasy. Unity. Om-Brahm, Vishnu, Shiva. Illusions. Mayas. The Over-Soul, the Ancestral Self. Divinity in man, brotherhood of man. Immortality. Incarnation, transmigration, avatar. Karma--thought, word, deed. Descent, lapse, exile. Kal9:, Kalpa, cosmic memory. Idea, image, entclechy, archetype. Beauty, m u l t i t u d e in unity. Angus. Bros. Love, the Light of Lights. Earth, the Mighty Mother--Dana. Tuatha De Dana'ans (Light), Fe- morians (Darkness). Chapter three is entitled "A. E. and His Mystical Paintings," while chapter four (the last) is "A. E. and His Mystical Influence." Seniors' Work Included. The appendix to Miss Graves' thesis is unique in that it consisted of special drawings of A. E. made by three senior students o£ Mason City high school--Leon Tokman, Joe Dahl and Dorothea Williamson, some special prints made by a former student, · Allen Patton, two prints made by the Globe-Gazette and various tributes to A.
