TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1943 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Collection Saturday-Grease Needed for War CUBS AND GIRL* SCOUTS TO HAVE PART IN DRIVE Pbooe 2S» or 259 CLDBE-CAZETTE Importance of Salvage to War Effort Pointed Out Here Preparations ai-e being made to make the salvage grease collection in Mason City Saturday the largest ever held in the community. The collection will be one of a series held the first Saturday of each month, with Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts making the door to door calls. January collections fell short of the goal set for the community on tne basis of preliminary returns. An all out effort to bring the total up to quota or better is being made by Mrs. H. D.- Makeever county chairman of the women's salvage division, and her organization. * * * * The grease collection in Mason City will be handled by Cub Packs in the following school areas: Harding, Leon Greene, in charge- Wilson, Glen Gilbert; Monroe Lyell Moore, and Lincoln, Eric Denner. The remainder of the school areas will be handled by the Girl Scouts, in charge of Mrs. Carl Fick. "If the grease. isn't collected from your household please call the person in charge of your area " said Mrs. Makeever. ' * * * The fact that January's Quota wasn't reached doesn't mean that the salvage organiation hasn't been functioning. It means rafhcr that all housewives haven't come to the realization of the importance of grease in the war effort. Mrs Makeever, to show 'th type of work being done by he organization,' called attention t the message sent out by Mrs. Has Hemming, Thornton, in charge o Crimes township, which said in "Salvage saving should become a habit in every hotr.e. Automatically save all waste fat, tin cans worn out rubber appliances and silk and nylon stockings. "Urge .the people o£ your dis tnct not to waste precious fats anc greases in home, soan making oap of all kinds is plentiful on the markets today and inexpensive. Let s not permit the loss of a single ounce of waste facts or th glycerine it contains. Mrs. Elmer Christensen in charge of the work in Thornton is working hand in hand with Mrs Iteming , in that section of the county. , -·: Mrs. Lawrence Bless, Ventura deems the salvage so important that she has made part of the collection wagon. person Excellent with work smal also ,, --...--,i iv ,i.n, V.-U4.JV iS cllSl being done by Mrs. Arthur Johnson of Clear Lake, as ' well by many others in the organization, ihe silk and nylon hosiery collection has gone over with a tremendous impetus.

The Berlin broadcast, recorded by the Associated Press, declared that "buildings of historical, architectural a n d aircheologieal value will be preserved." · Buildings spared were said include the 17th century tovvnhall, the municipal administration building St. Lawrence's church, the old customs building and a number of patrician houses. The broadcast denied reports from Marseille by way of Switzerland "that violent collisions had taken place in the evacuation of this district and that numerous people had been killed." It de- :!ared that "not a single shot had been fired and evacuation was carried through without incident" The broadcast failed to mention' however, reports that the harbor district was being cleared to make .yay for construction of fortifications to help protect "Europe's soft under belly" against any allied offensive.'
