New address... Mason City FIRST CHRISTMAS ALL AROUND — This will be a first Christmas for Mr. and Mrs. .Ronald Parish in their new home at 1826 Cerro Gordo Way and it will be a very first Christmas anywhere for their 11-month-old daughter, De- Ann. The family moved to Mason City in November. Tobe says Get suede coat mood If you are one of the many young career women who now and then tire of the glossy, polished demands of city dressing, change your style with a suede coat. A trench coat, or simple double-breasted classic, takes on a raffish,•foreign-intrigue mood with the swagger of boots, textured stockings and thick turtleneck sweater. Many of today's suede coats come provided with zip-out linings to give you protection on even the nastiest days. And don't worry about rain or snow spotting. This kind of coat improves with the patina of age-and-wear. Social calendar Another first is set by medicine REDWOOD CITY, Calif.

Tri-county school officers meet at lake for dinner CLEAR LAKE—About 20 persons attended the Tri-Couuty School Administrators buffet supper at Witke's Restaurant Thursday evening. The group then went to the home of Supt. and Mrs. E. O. Berge where informal discussion, was held on the meeting with legislators at Clear Lake, legislative action in CLEAR LAKE — Fried chicken, potatoes and gravy, buttered peas, applesauce, bread and butter and milk for 30 cents? Sounds impossible to serve a meal like that for such a low cost, but it is being done in the Clear Lake schools. A bargain in food and even second help ings are outstanding features of the hot lunch program which serves an average of 1,300 meals a day. Serving that many meals a day at four schools is big busi ness that will amount to more mashed potatoes with butter, ;han $70,000 a year in income and expense. The program is self-supporting with no local tax dollars needed. Buying in hugt quantities on a bid basis is one of the reasons the schools can put out meals at a reasonable cost. Quality is not by-passed either. Meals are prepared to include necessary nutritional constituents and are tasty and colorful. One of the meals served recently included meat loaf, Late Shore notes auttered green beans, apricots, bread and butter sandwiches and milk. Served on one of the sturdy colored plastic trays, the meal was attractive for even the most finicky eater. When the hot lunch program started in 1957, there was an average of 180 meals served daily. With a total enrollment of 873, about 20 per cent of the students ate hot lunch. Now the average is 65 per cent, or 1,300 out of 2,000 students. Wintertime participant jjoes up, said E. 0.

How docs the school system auy food in such large quantities? Before school begms, a "can-cutting" day is held with wholesalers submitting cans of meat, fruits and vegetables. Comparison tests are made for quality, servability, appearance and drained weight with all products to be of the fancy quality rating. The lowest bidder doesn't necessarily get the food contract. Food has to measure up or it is rejected. More than a carload of food is purchased in September and delivered throughout the year. Meats and other groceries are purchased from Clear Lake stores with all receiving a share of the business. Federal aid of four cents on each half-pint of milk served is received. In October the schools used 46,000 half-pints. There were 28,900 meals served. The additional half-pints were served at the morning milk-break for students in kindergarten through sixth grade. A student's milk- break cost is $1.75, or ont cent daily.
