MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 25 · 1937 THREE 100 GARS BLOCKED AFTER NORTHWOOD TRUCK CRASH SINGLE WAY LAME OPENED i'Some Motorists in Autos 3 Hours;-Then Engines . Won't Start, NORTHWOOD -^ Apuroximate- ly 100 automobiles were stalled one mile south o£ Northwood Wednesday afternoon from one to three hours when a large trailer-truck side swiped a smaller cur that was stalled in a snow bank, causing the truck to "jack-UniJCe" and block the highway. There was no telephone nearby and before word could be sent to Northwood and Kensett to stop traffic the steady oncoming traffic caused a line of cars to form for about a half mile in either direction from the stalled truck. Some of the motorists were forced to remain at the'scene oE the blockade for three hours in cars without heaters. Go Into Ditches. Plows were of little aid, owing to the resulting congestion, but after much work, a single )ane was provided and southbound cart; were sent back to Northwood, a place being made for them to turn around, and then the .northbound cars were allowed to pass on through to Northwood. While |jgjj. standing, many of the motors were covered witli the wet snow that was blown under the hoods by the strong wind and would not start of their own accord. Service cars from Northwood towed these cars to town. Several of the cars, in attempting to pass the blockade before the arrival of highway crews, got off the grade into the ditches.. So far as could be learned, no one was hurt. The hotel in Northwood was crowded to capacity and many private homes were thrown open to care for those who could not obtain accommodations at the hotel. IVire Service Injured. About four inches of snow fell by dark Wednesday, and though the snow was wet and heavy, it drifted considerably in the high wind. Bus .traffic was abandoned. Northbound trains were but little behind schedule, but southbound trains were held up by a train stalled north of Albert Lea with engine trouble. No telephone communication xvas ' possible early Wednesday forenoon but one -circuit was opened to Mason City shortly before noon but was inadequate to handle the many calls waiting to be put through. Western Union wires were down, making the sending-fof commercial/messages impossible. A bieak in'the-electric Bower line from Mason City occurred just north of Kensett, leaving the town of Northwood without light or power for about one hour until the repair crew could locate the break and make repairs. Electric stoves a.nd refrigeration and motor driven heating plants were - useless most of Wednesday forenoon as the current was much below normal for a time before the break 'occurred. ' · . . The primary school was dismissed Wednesday forenoon owing to lack of-heat. Several rural schools in this vicinity did not open Wednesday. : HERE AND THERE :-: Miscellaneous Items From 125 Globe-Gazette Correspondents in North Iowa and Southern Minnesota JMave to Mason City.

"The thing I prize most is my reputation for saying what I think. Here's what I sincerely think about smoking--it's one of the greatest pleasures in the world, but it can be utterly spoiled by throat irritation. My job's tough on the throat and Ihave to be careful to keep my voice clear. Long ago I found that Luckies are easy and smooth and don't catch your throat. That means everything in a job like mine. Next time you hear the usual e Cheerio' at the end of my broadcast, you can picture me reaching for a Lucky an instant later." JI independent survey was made recently among professional men, and women--lawyers, doctors,lecturers, scientists, etc. O£ those who said they smoke cigarettes, more thanS7%stated theypersonally prefer alight smoke. Mr. Carter verifies the wisdom of this preference, and so do other leading artists of the radio, stage, screen and opera. Their voices arc their fortunes. That's why so many of them smoke Luckies, You, too, can have the throat protection of Luckies--a light smoke, free of certain harsh irritants removed by the exclusive process "It's Toasted".
