Speaker John Irwin said tlie bill would hold its place on the calendar. It had been scheduled for action Monday. Meanwhile, republican house leaders said a party caucus probably would be held Monday night. Representative Dean W. Peisen (R), Eldora, reorganization leader, said flatly that he does not intend to vote for any appropriation measures "until we get together and look at the whole picture." He said passing tax boosting measures singly would mean the party might find itself "using an adding machine pretty regularly" in computing the final totals. Representative Harry E. Weichman (R). Ncwhall, agreed to the office building delay. He has been handling presentation of the bill. A Jersey cow stolen at Hale Center. Tex., returned two davs later dragging a brand new rope to ils owner. HOCKEY HERO SAVES BRUINS Boston Wins Overtime Contest With Rangers to Enter Cup Finale BOSTON, am--There was a hockey hero Monday, a,nd his name is Mel Hill, a rookie whose deadly shooting put the Boston Bruins in the Stanley cup playoff final against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

If the Bruins win the playoffs and the right to drink champagne from the battered S50 mug donated 45 years ago by Lord Stanley, Mel Hill certainly has earned the first draught.

AIRPORT NEED TOLD AT ROTARY W. B. Hathorn Tells Present Situation of Local Proposal "Mason City still has the same airport it had in 1911 and it is time to change," W. B. Hathom, member of the Mason City airport committee, asserted at the regular noon luncheon meeting of the Mason City Rotary club Monday. In reviewing what has been done toward promoting a new municipal airport, Mr, Hathorn pointed out that with 'a'regulation class three field Mason City would be assured of a stop on an airline that will extend from Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minn., to Kansas City, Mo., and south. He also explained that briefs have been prepared and presented-at a meeting in St. Louis, Mo., which included representatives of the government and airline companies. Selected for Aid Mr. Hathorn pointed out that Mason City has been selected by government representatives as one of the eight cities in Iowa that should be helped by federal aid in the construction of an airport. He also brought out the fact that the local Chamber of Commerce members appointed a committee six months ago to represent Mason City in the matter of an airport. Three reasons for ~an airport were brought out by Mr. Hathorn. He explained that business needs speedier service; large factories may come to Mason City because of the air service, and because military air bases arc being moved inland Mason City stands a chance of getting an airplane factory. Trained 100 Men In the replies to questions by the Rotarians following the talk, Mr. Hathom revealed that last year one local airport trained approximately 100 men and at the present time from '40 to 50 men are pilots. He also pointed out that the proposed airport would be self supporting by leasing the field to private companies and airlines pay from $1,000 to $1,800 a year for landing privileges. A special election for a bond issue of $100,000 will be asked, Mr. Hathorn explained, and a matching 5100,000 may be given by the government through one of three departments, namely, PWA, WPA, and the proposed civil aeronautics bill of $425,000,000 in congress designed to aid municipal airports. The speaker also pointed out that it would be possible to build an airport on the city bond issue alone. He explained that in order to get federal aid Mason City must own the necessary land first.
