J. L. Stevens, Plymouth, was elected president; J. G. Mueller, Manly, vice president; O. K. Storre, Kensett, secretary, and J. R. Shales, Randalia, treasurer. These with M. P. Christehsen, Algona, comprised the board qi directors. "' The company started with total cash of $3,711 subscribed by the creameries in stock and a 1 mill levy on the previous year's business. H. M. Harmison was selected as manager and took over his duties on April 15 ot that year. The company set up its first offices at Davenport, starting out as a selling organization only, handling Iowa State brand butter, which creameries producing 93 score butter were permitted under state law to use. Davenport was selected because it was believed that territory would supply a better market. In those days it was felt that a selling organisation would be able to procure a higher price for this excellent Iowa product. Started at Higley's. By the fall of 1927, however, company heads realized they were on the wrong track and that a central processing plant would have to be established. Space was rented in the plant of E. B. Higley company and plans made to handle other grades of butter. The first butter handled in the plant was from the creamery at Manly. Since that time the company has handled a total of 10-1,000,000 pounds of butter. A steady growth was evident from year to year as successfully made in this direction in Mason City was explained on the Worth Iowa Forum over 1CGLO Wednesday evening when Arthur Krager, Lincoln junior high school principal, and G. H. Keister, high school mechanics instructor, discussed the subject, "How the Public Can Help the Patrol Boys." It was explained that patrol boys, identified by Sam Browne belts, are placed at the busiest intersections near the schools just before schools are dismissed and before classes are resumed. Inasmuch as the patrol boys are not traffic policemen, according to the forum speakers, it is necessary that motorists should co-operate with this safety movement by always approaching intersections at a safe rate of speed and obey the traffic signals, so -that the boys can conduct children across the streets with the highest degree of safety. Motorists and pedestrians who recognize that the boys are doing a laudable piece of work were asked to help the cause by complimenting the patrol members on their good points, by encouraging their own boys to volunteer for this service, and by helping to organize school patrol units in their own communities. It was pointed out that there are two patrol units in Mason City, the Lincoln Lions Patrol and the St. Joseph's Patrol, embracing a total of about 70 boys. These boys are given special training once a week by Evron Karges of the Y. M. C. A. A. structed in West Park and two in the wooded area across from the Mason City Waterworks plant. Since the latter property has been used as a storage lot, considerable cleaning and grading will be required before actual construction of the courts can be started, according to Mr. Beyers. Work on the other courts will be started as soon as the weather permits. To Park Land. Another grading project to be undertaken will be the clearing and parking of about 5 acres northeast of the lower ball diamond at East Park. The projects will employ about 60 men during the next three months, according to Mr. Beyers, and will require both skilled and common labor. Twelve men are already employed on the WPA waterworks project and 35 on the traffic survey project in Mason City. lows: First precinct ot the first ward school administration building.

In times of our own naked need we do well to fall back on familiar thoughts and acts. Novel ideas and new modes of conduct will not see us through our worst days. There is, for those of us to whom the practices of religion have become habitual, much reassurance in the thought of Jesus, formally observing the Last Supper. New meanings were already passing into the old act, and since that day the interpretations of the Sacrament have been many. But no one of us should despise, and none of us can afford to dispense with, the access of strength to be had from the most well-known words and ceremonies of religion. Only that which is utterly familiar can bear life's sternest storm and stress. Prayer: We thank thee, our Father, for the life and knowledge which thou hast made known to us through Jesus thy servant. As this broken bread was scattered (as corn) over the mountains, and being gathered together became one, so may thy church be gathered together from the ends of the earth into thy kingdom.
