In one phase of the program, which is sponsored by the Grand Lodge of Iowa, the state has been divided into 55 districts, and Francis H. Ellis, Emmetsburg, has been named a special representative of the Grand Master of Masons in this area. He is a member of Earnest Lodge No. 399, Emmetsburg. According to Dr. W. W. Morris, Iowa City, Grand Master of Masons in Iowa, "the hope of the program is that more and more Masons will come out from behind the closed doors of their lodge rooms and become personally involved in implementing the fraternity's laudable goals and objectives for the common good." In addition to districting of the state, the program includes formation of a long-range planning committee, a Masonic youth committee and a publications advisory committee. "Through these committees, greater commitment by individual Masons and their lodges to public concerns will be sought," Dr. Morris said, suggesting that it would be good, for example, "if each lodge had a public committee charged to develop meaningful, worthwhile, relevant projects and relationships with the local schools." Lodges in the three counties are located in Armstrong, Estherville, Swea City, Burt, Algona, Emmetsburg, Ruthven and West Bend.

Bill Would End Booze Monopoly DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) An end to the Iowa State liquor monopoly was proposed Wednesday in a bill filed in the Iowa House by Rep. Michael Blouin, D-Dubuque. The bill would turn the sale of liquor over to private enterprise. Blouin said the chief argument against private sale of liquor has been the loss of state revenue resulting from breaking up the state's monopoly. But he said that, as of next July 1, "we will be adding thousands of new customers in Iowa with the granting of adult rights at age 18." "The millions of dollars of additional revenue which will result from this, along with the additional increase in taxes on the owners of new stores, the additional property tax on land which is now partially tax exempt' and the economic upswing due to Iowans buying in Iowa should make the present time perfect for such a transition." Blouin alluded to charges that the state loses thousands of dollars in revenue each year because Iowans in border counties prefer to go to neighboring states to buy liquor necause selections are better than they are in Iowa state stores. Rep. Arthur Small, D-Iowa City, said he also favored the change. He said there currently is just one store in Iowa City, serving a population of more than 40,000 and "it isn't even self-serve." Blouin said Reps. William Gluba, D-Davenport and June Franklin, D - Des Moines, as well as Small, were joining him in sponsoring the bill.

CZ] the same as the first 3 minutes, less than the first 3 minutes. (Bet you guessed wrong!) Tell the truth now. Did you guess "less"? Then you're in the minority. Most people don't realize that the second 3 minutes of a long distance call are never more and usually less than the first 3 minutes. Here are some examples: First Each 3 minutes additional minute 75c 25c or less 65c 21c or less 55c 18c or less So don't be afraid to talk longer than 3 minutes. It costs less than you think. A little money still goes a long way on the telephone. The cost of moving from a dream castle By Abigail Van Buren [* im by Chtcito TribtiM -N. Y. Nw Svitd., Inc .1 DEAR ABBY: Your comment to "Lady Dreamer" reminded me of a cute saying I'd like to share. "The neurotic BUILDS dream castles. The psychotic LIVES in them, and the psychiatrist collects the rent." MRS. L. P. DEAR MRS. L. P.: A competent psychiatrist doesn't "collect the rent" for anyone's dream castles. Instead he helps his patient to find a dwelling he can actually LIVE in. And his fee is more appropriately the cost of moving. DEAR ABBY: We have a very surly, selfish son in law who is married to our only child. She is a wonderful girl and we love her very much, but we just can't understand him. He treats our daughter all right as far as we can see, but he treats us terribly. When we invite the two of them for supper, she usually comes alone. She's embarrassed, but confesses she couldn't get him to come with her. When he does come, he eats fast and wants to run away right after the meal is over. We have given them a lot of financial help. We bought them a nice little house and are helping them furnish it. We even bought them a'second car. I was in the hospital for two weeks and he never came to see me once. He didn't even send me a card! Would it be childish for us to treat him like he treats us? I mean stop all financial help? I wouldn't want to hurt my daughter, but someone should teach this fellow a lesson. HURT DEAR HURT: Any financial help you gave him was undoubtedly more for your daughter's sake than his. Don 't reward his indifference and mdeness with generosity, but be careful how you "teach him a lesson" or your daughter might wind up paying for the lesson. DEAR ABBY: I am a school teacher. The other day another teacher told me in the presence of the school nurse and some office secretaries, that she had seen a woman shoplift a purse in a local store. .• I asked her if she reported the incident to anyone, and she said she had not. I then told her that I thought she had an obligation to report it. A discussion followed. One person agreed with me. Another said, "If that woman was stealing, she must have been very hard up and needed to steal so it would have been unkind to report her." Another said, "I'd have minded my own business because if I made such an accusation and wasn't able to prove it, I could be sued for slander." Now I'd like your opinion, Abby. AN EX ANGELENO DEAR EX: I would have reported it. To quote Edmund Burke fagain], "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." What's your problem? You 'll feel better if yon get it off your chest. Write to ABBY, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal. 90069. For a personal reply enclose stamped, addressed envelope. ® Northwestern Bell 6-Piece Place Setting in Community Stainless By ONEIDA Available In these patterns: $6.99 Available In these patterns: $4.99 Christensen Jewelers 618 Central, Estherville, Iowa
