FIRST GASOLINE IS HAULED FROM LAKE PIPE LINE Tankcar Shortage in Midwest Spurs Opening to Aid Transportation The Great Lakes Pipe Line company, with headquarters at Kansas City, Mo., opened its terminal at Clear Lake Thursday, approximately 6 weeks before construction is entirely complete, in order to alleviate shortages developing in this area of tankcars, which are now being used almost entirely for transportation o£ petroleum to the east coast. With its 172,000 barrel ^storage capacity in 7 huge tanks fed by 2 6-inch lines, the terminal now is ready to operate. Construction of the office and laboratory and some minor buildings is in the final stages and temporary quarters are now being used by the company to conduct its business. The first load of approximately 5,200 gallons was taken from the loading rack Thursday morning much to the satisfaction of D. M. Hawkins, Tulsa, Okla., construction superintendent who has been in charge of building 'operations, and L. G. Crist, terminal superintendent at the lake. Construction of the Clear Lake terminal was started Aug. 1 by the Great Lakes Pipe Line company on 20 acres of what was formerly the Sam Kennedy farm adjoining Clear Lake. Because of wartime shortages of material and an unexpected amount of cold weather, construction has b e e n slower than had been anticipated. Facilities at the terminal consist of an office and laboratory, a separate building for Ethyl fluid, a combination garage and warehouse, a truck loading rack so Brownout Leaves Little Man in Dork Without His Shadow Federal Avenue Is Rather Low Voltage for an Inspiration City when HERE IN MASON CITY 1 Rummage Sale -- 32 E.

GASOLINE MOVES OUT--This picture shows the second and third trucks to be filled at the Great Lakes Pipe Line company's new terminal at Clear Lake Thursday. They are part of the Barton Transport fleet of, trucks from St. Paul, Minn., which will be one of the heavy haulers from the new terminal for the Minnesota territory. The trucks hold approximately 5,200 gallons each. Four such trucks can be loaded simultaneously at this loading rack. Some of the huge gasoline tanks of the terminal may be seen in the background. The company has a storage capacity of 172,000 barrels in its 7 tanks. (Lock photo, Kayenay engraving) LBoys and Girls to I/Have Charge o£ Wesley Church Service Sunday The service Sunday night at 7:30 at Wesley Methodist church will be conducted by young people under 12 years of age. The junior department choir of First Methodist church, under the direction of H. E. Payne, will sing several groups of numbers. The sermons will be presented by the juniors of "Wesley church and the entire service will be one in which adults will look on but do not participate. Following the service, there will be a social hour conducted by the juniors and intermediates of Wesley church as a courtesy to the junior choir of First Methodist church. The program is as follows: Prelude, Mrs. Carl H. Carlson; professional, "Onward Christian Soldiers;" invocation, the choir, "Children of the Heavenly King," Playal; "Steal Away," spiritual; scripture, Mary Jane Folsom and Larabeth Folsom; prayer, Darrell Fisher; the choir, "The Lord's Prayer," Payne? and "Sanctus," Schubert.

The choir, "O Lord Most Holy," Francfc. Ushers will be Wilbur Closson, Clarence Milnes, Jerry Polansky, Leslie Booth and Bobby McAIpine. constructed that 4 trucks may be loaded simultaneously, and 7 huge storage tanks, 4 of them having capacities of 20,000 barrels each and 3 of them, 34,000 barrel capacities each. The company is a transporter of refined petroleum products; has its headquarters in,Kansas City; and is connected with 16 refineries in Oklahoma and Kansas. The company acts as a carrier for shippers and will service an area of from 75 to 100 miles around Mason City most economically. -Two 6 inch pipelines already in operation between Des Moines and Minneapolis will furnish the supply for the local terminal., A pump station is located on the mainline about ,a mile north of the Clear Lake terminal and altogether about 30 persons will be employed by the company in this area, 18 at the terminal, 5 at the pump station and 7 on the maintenance gang. Operations at the terminal will be conducted 7 days out o£ the week, with 24 hour service each day. In serving the 16 refineries in Oklahoma and Kansas, the Great Lakes Pipe Line company connects with terminals at Kansas City, Des Moines, Omaha, Iowa City,. Chicago and Minneapolis. The new terminal at the lake, therefore, will better service the area that lies between Des Moines and Minneapolis and will reduce truck hauls at a time when transportation is critical. Tankcars, -which are now being used to haul petroleum products to the east for-civilian use as -well as armed, services, are no longer available for this territory. Consequently the pipe line and trucks have come to be the best means of distribution of gasoline in serving the community. The Great Lakes Pipe Line company is solely a transporter of refined petroleum products by pipe line and its charge for this service is set out in tariffs similar to those of railroads. The products are owned by the various shippers who designate the truckers and chased by the company in order to service tanks and tractors in this area. It is complete with washrack, ereaserack and service room. This company operates about 65 tanks and 80 tractors out of the Des Moines office. Terminals also are operated at Coralvlllc and Bet r tendorf. Robert Root, vice president of the company, was in Mason City Thursday to check with Manager Joe Johnson of the local terminal when the first order went through. Between 8 and 12 persons will be employed at the Ruan terminal when construction is finished and the terminal is in full operation. The second and third trucks to be loaded at the Great Lakes Pipe Line company terminal Thursday were part of the Barton Transport fleet of St. Paul, Minn. Driven by Ed Wagner, St. Paul, and Glen Hart, Minneapolis, this pair of trucks took 5,200 gallons each for destinations in Minnesota, -a short distance over the boundary line. Farmers Creamery at Wesley Holds Meeting Wesley--The annual meeting of the Farmers Creamery company was to ,be held Saturday afternoon at the Kleinpeter hall. Prof. Hudenick of the extension department of the Iowa State college at Ames was principal speaker. This was to be followed by a program and then a business meeting at which 3 directors are to be elected. The dinner usually served at the annual meeting was dispensed with this year due to war conditions.

TRUCK OVERTURNS N e w t o n , (/F) -- Ten tons of dressed chickens enroute to Marshalltown canning plant to be processed for the armed services were spilled when a semi-trailer truck driven by Less Schmitt of Mitchellville overturned near here Tuesday. ' Fredericksburg--Lindon Upham went to Des Moines Tuesday and returned with a new truck- Where was Mason the brownout came? Like Moses--it found one little man in the dark! About as perplexed as a mad March hare at a country crossroads this little man wandered up and down Federal avenue looking for some color. Just a little warmth of human interest with which to flourish up a story. No kidding--to the little man who thought he knew his way around the town, it was just about as nice a piece of tunnel as he ever tried to grope his way through. H W. C. Fields had walked across the street, his nose would have been mislaken for a Jap balloon for sure. There was a light snow falling --and into all of this the city editor had sent his fledgling reporter into the cold of winter' to write a human interest story about what? A fate crueler than a melodrama climax. To writs of nothing! No lights to the right of him-no lights to the left of him. Up and down the street walked the little man in the bitter snow looking for the warmth of a 60 watt bulb. Not even the healthy glow if a cigaret butt to guide him. He leaned against a street lamp and it sputtered. "To write or not to write?" That was the question groping through his mind. Even his ideas were low voltage. A 2 per cent beer hadn't turned over his meter. He tried to look into the dark show windows. A cop came by and whacked his rear bumper. "No peepin,' sonny, even if they are wax models!" If only this brownout could have been held over until Friday! The groundhog wouldn't have had to worry about his shadow. Even (he shadow could have mislaid itself! And think what a lot of fun people could have had with an early spring-getting their gardens in before the robins returned. Spring--if spring would only come again! Here was a little man -- not hunting for an honest man--only a lamp! He couldn't tell the movie front from the bank front, the drugstore window from the dress shop's salon--or should there be another o in it? He wasn't sure --he couldn't even tell a grocery store from a hamburg stand--Which reminded him to drop in. He was hungry for a meat ball wrapped in yesterday's bun. The onion made him cry. It's no fun going out nights if the lights aren't on. The little man bought himself a comic book and went home. He sneaked into the house with the book under his coat. Upstairs he crept to his room. At least--there was a 60 watt bulb over his bed. Warmth, cheer--and the latest adventures of "Superman." Let the snow fall outside. Let all the lights go out. A few more pages of "Superman" and he would even tell the city ed off! Then he fell asleep -- only to wake at the cold brrrrrr of the alarm clock--without a story on the brownout. Now -- where --oh where was Mason City when the brownout came? Moson City Observes Brownout The brownout, a mandatory order of the war production board, wept into effect Thursday night with practically complete success in Mason City. The order was set forth in an effort to save fuel and prohibits outdoor advertising and display lighting which requires electric power, except where it is necessary for the public safety. Store window lights are not permitted except where it is necessary for interior illumination, Responsibility for turning off unnecessary lights, according to the WPB, rests with the users of electricity and power companies furnishing the electricity must notify the non-complier of his failure to meet the regulations and file a copy of the notification with the WPB. The order prohibits outdoor advertising and outdoor promotional lighting, outdoor display except where necessary for the conduct of the business of outdoor establishments, outdoor decorative and outdoor ornamental lighting, show window lighting except w h e r e necessary for interior illumination, marquee lighting in excess of 60 watts for each marquee, and white way street lighting in excess of. the amount determined by local public authority to be necessary for public safety. The power company may be ordered to withhold service if compliance is not met with. It is estimated that 2 million tons o£ coal will be saved in a year by the brownout.
