DALE ADDRESSES BOY SCOUT LEADERS Speaks of Importance of Scouting in Field of Mental Hygiene. In the firth session of the training course in 'Troop Administration" being conducted for scout leaders of the North Iowa council the subject studied Thursday night was "General Troop Problems." The meeting opened with each patrol conducting its own opening ceremony. George A. Dale, principal of the Lincoln Junior high school, addressed the members of the school on "Mental Hygiene as Applied to Scouting." In the course of the address he brought out that people were forced to consider physical hygiene because of the growth of cities and towns. Mental hygiene was brought about by over-crowded conditions of our cities and because of our complex civilization. "More people are treated for mental and nervous ailments each year than enroll in our colleges," said Mr. Dale. It Helps Boys. He showed that scouting may be said to be a program to help the situation in mental hygiene because of its setup. "Scouting is the best program ever yet devised to help the boys of today to develop the three points so vital to the life of a boy," he said. "These three points are security, satisfaction and self reliance. A boy likes to feel that he is secure in the minds of other people, and the scouting program, through its development of the interest of the parents and other adults, gives the boy that security. Satisfaction is brought to the boy through scouting as he is prompted to do things that are approved by everyone, he can satisfy that urge to go places. . "It also satisfies that longing for recognition through the advancement program. All boys are anxious to be recognized and if they can t be through some good act they will do it in a criminal way. Self reliance is developed in the boy through scouting by having him do things that bring him success. Continued defeat is the thing that causes many boys to go wrong. As soon a s a boy has advanced a step in the scouting program he has more reliance in himself as he has accomplished something worth while and which is approved by the public in general. The scouting program, therefore gives the boy the opportunity to develop himself." Buzzards Ahead. In the inter-patrol contest that is being conducted during the course the Blue Buzzards continue to hold the lead with a score of 5,2W and scored 727 points last night. The Blue Eagles climbed from third to second place by scoring 748 points last night which gives them a total of 4,906. The Owls scored 463 points last night and dropped to third place with a total of 4,897. The session next Thursday night, May 17 will close the indoor work of the course. The subject for study for the last session will be "The Outdoor Program." An overnight hike at Camp Roosevelt, will be held Saturday and Sunday, May 19 and 20 for members of the course and others who may be interested. On this hike there will be a definite study of "Troop Camping." Luther Leagues of Central and Zion Churches to Meet The Luther League of Zion Lutheran church, Clear Lake, and Central Lutheran church, Mason City, shall hold a union devotional meeting at Central Lutheran church, Sunday at 6:30 p. m. The program is in charge of the Clear Lake league, with Robert Thompson as speaker, Miss Gladyce Lomen in French horn solo; Miss Helen Wetterling, piano solo and Clifford Vik, vocal solo. Ilza Niemack Will Play Concerto With Orchestra Concert Monday Night Will Conclude Civic Music Group Series. Bringing the Civic Music association season to a close with a concert planned as a climax for the 1934 series, the Civic orchestra Monday night at 8:15 o'clock in the high school auditorium will present a program featuring Miss Ilza Nie- mack of Charles City, concert violinist. Miss Niemack, who has toured the United States and Europe and ia widely acclaimed as one of the outstanding present day artists, is also a composdr of note. Recently in Des Moines her compositions were played and received much praise. Although Miss Niemack lias appeared before Mason City audiences before, her performances have been infrequent and local music lovers are looking forward to her return here. A year ago this spring she presented a concert under the auspices of the music department of the Woman's club and was warmly acclaimed. M Composition Is Popular. The selection which Miss Nie- mack will feature when she plays here Monday will be "Concerto in E Minor" for violin and orchestra by Mendelssohn. This consists of three movements, the allegro moto appassionata, andante, a few bars of allegretto and the allegro molto vivace. This concerto is the one composition by which leading violinists are judged. Its popularity has never waned and it is frequently given a prominent place on the- concert stage. Although Mendelssohn was a fair player of the violin and viola, this concerto was the only one he ever composed. He only completed it after long and voluminous correspondence with Ferdinand David, outstanding violinist of that day. Prominent AS Soloist. Mr. David was also the first person ever to perform the concerto. However, when it was first given, Mendelssohn was so exhausted vhat he did not even journey to the place it was presented to hear it. Misa Niemack, North Iowa's own artist who-came "out of the Dvorak country," has appeared as soloist with many leading orchestras throughout the country, including the New York symphony, the Cincinnati symphony and others and ILZA NIEMACK the Berlin Philharmonic Hamburg orchestra. and the Studied by Orchestra.

Iowa industrial employment is 34.6 per cent above that of 1933, according to information received here from State Commissioner of labor Frank E. Wenig. The Wenig report, which is for April, shows no gains for Mason City inasmuch as during that per- od the Northwestern States Port- and Cement company was down for repairs and the Mason City Brick and Tile company, which operated a few weeks in March was also shut down. Both these plants resumed operations May 1. Employment at the plant of Jacob . Decker and Sons company is holding up well for this time of the year. Increase Felt. For the state as a whole industrial employment increased 3.1 per cent during April, to add to a 3.2 pel- cent gain in March, and a 3.2 per cent gain in February. Payrolls increased 4.5 per cent. The average weekly wage climbed 1.6 per cent.. "A large portion of the employment increases are seasonal," Wenig said. "But with a gain of more than ihree per cent in employment for three consecutive months, seasonal activity is not wholly responsible for these increases." Outstanding increases for the month were reported by stone and clay products with an employment gain of 26.7 per cent; steel works 11.9 per cent, textiles 1.8 per cent, and a group of miscellaneous indus- :ries 1.5 per cent. Wenig noted reports from various industrial leaders of the state indicated "a general upswing in business, with the exception of a few ;easonally declining industries." He added: Drop-Off Experienced. "Although a noticeable drop-off iS experienced in some lines since the end of the civil works activity, industrial employment shows an upward tendency indicating increased production over the past few lean years, which should be encouraging to many industrialists. But it seems that the outlook for 1934 to equal the record of 1929 is a very optimistic outlook, indeed." While the employment thus far is 34.6 per cent above that of 1933, i is 25 per cent above the 1932 level only one per cent above 1931, and 13.4 per cent below 1930. Industries showing decreases last month included lumber products leather, patent medicines, railway car shops and tobacco and cigar firms. Increase in Permits. Employment gains were couplec with an increase of 176 permits issued in April foz- building as compared to February, and an increase of $1,142,717.50 in the valuation o improvements contemplated.
