Swarner has been re elected regent of the Mason City chapter of the Daughters of thi American Revolution. Election wai held at the annual Slay morning breakfast conducted at the Church of Christ and followed by a meeting First Hundred Years Easy 'Be your natural self, take things easy and don't have mean thoughts in your heart." That's the recipe for longevity and happiness of a gray-haired, blue-eyed little woman who is the oldest mother in America, according to a Mother's Day survey by the Golden Rule foundation.,Shc is Mrs. Mary N. Rice, of Memphis, Tenn., who wears her 104 years now as lightly as she did her bridal veil back in the days of the Civil war. "And," Mrs. Rice adds with a merry twinkle in her keen, blue eyes, "do that and you'll find the first hundred years are the happiest not the hardest, as some folks say. After all, the greatest thing in life is happiness." Mrs. Rice, marvel of physicians, is as alert today as many women who are a hah: century her junior. The only time she has been ill in recent years was two years ago when she fell down a flight of stairs on her way to answer the telephone--and sprained her wrist. Born in Gadsdcn county, Florida, on March 15, 18S2, when Andrew Jackson was president and Abraham Lincoln, then 23, was splitting rails on an Illinois fann, Mrs. Rice .ias lived through nearly two-thirds of the nation's history. And yet, she is as spry as a kitten and possesses a mind as keen as a razor blade. "I eat what I want to cat," she says as she passes you a box of candy, "and do what I please except that lately my daughters insisted upon me having breakfast in bed: I don't like that idea a bit, but maybe they know best." Awake at seven after listening in on the radio regularly, until midnight, she likes her daily auto rides and doesn't mind driving fast "if I have confidence in the driver." Mrs. Rice's husband, a doctor of the Civil war period, died in 1903. She makes her home in Memphis with two elderly daughters, a son having died at an advanced age several years ago. There are several grandchildren, but her only great- grandchild now is dead. at the home of the chairman, Mrs. R. E. Brisbine. Mrs. Brisbine is the newly elected vice regent, Mrs. W. J.

G. Carlson and Mrs. Harry Wright, directors; and Mrs. H. C. Shipman, honorary regent. Kindred Addresses Townsend Meeting The Rev. L. H. Kindred of the Nazarene church told members of Townsend club Wo. 1 at the P. G. and E. auditorium Monday evening that the Townsend plan supplies the solid foundation needed for the solution of "our political situation."

The Iowa State college extension department sponsored the class. Buy A New Spring Suit- and Topcoat USE OUR BUDGET PUN No EXTRA COST F A S H I O N F A V O R S T H E B O W - T I E Fashion no longer frowns on the elimination of the waistcoat during hot weather. In fact the popular double-breasted jacket encourages this comfort-giving idea. Consistent with this trend is the growing favor bestowed on the bow-tie for summer wear To assist those who hesitate to wear bow ties because of the misapprehension that they require difficult manipulation, we ve shown, here the four simple stages of bow-tieing. The method displayed is that used by professorial tier-uppers who prepare the ready-tied, hand-tied bats for formal wear. Try it out using your leg, just above the .knee, as a substitute neck. A few minutes of ?roct"ce will. make 9 ' you letter-perfect. And, since a large-sized handkerchief worn in the breast pocket is not only a smart touch, but handy for mopping purposes on a hot day we've shown the accepted method of folding this ornamental and useful article so that it won't look and feel as if you're carrying a tennis ball up there, j The pointed end bat for dress wear is preferred by many. The points project past the ends slightly in the manner shown. The "club shape" bat for dinner jacket wear. It should be only moderately wide and the paddles should not extend out too far. It's suitable for wear with starched or soft-turn-over collars. 1: Adjust bow fie in collar with one end out about 1 W longer than other. 2. Fold short end (b) back. Bring longer end (a) over the folded, shorter end (b) and pull end (a) through to make a square knot. Keep the knot loose enough to get a finger through and adjust knot to appear as shown. 1. Hold your handkerchief at the very center, letting the ends droop down. 3. Take the end we've termed (b). Bring the point back through the knot. You'll find the opening to pull it through at the front of the knot. 2. Grasp with your other hand about half way down and fold in two. \ The "Butterfly Bat" with moderate sized paddles looks well with a longer point collar. It's the preferable shape for wear with a wing collar for formal wear. The bow-tie in its simplest form known as the "bat." A good shape for shepherd checks and smart for more formal day 1 wear. Bring longer end '(a) over and under short end (b) as shown. Pull tight on collar. 4. The end that's left should be folded and the point slipped through the opening you'll find at the back of the knot. A little backing and filling to tighten and equalize the ends will give the desired result. Avoid tightening the knot too much. 3. Push the fold into breast pocket with center and ends upward. 4. The result is the desired nonchalance with some of the center and a corner or two showing.
