President Easter Brothers Inc., .Des Moines, Monday announced plans to erect a new supermarket at President and 5th SW (Highway 18). Jack Easter told the Globe- Gazette the Mason City store will be among the largest operated by the firm, which has seven other supermarkets in Iowa including one in Clear Lake which opened in 1956. No cost estimate was available. Bids are expected to be opened later this month, with construction to start "as soon after the first of the year as possible." Jim Hay, advertising manager for Super Valu Stores, Inc., Des Moines, said plans are to have the store operational by early summer. However, he added that this will be dependent on the weather. The building was designed by stores engineers in Super Valu's Des Moines division. The plans now are undergoing final revision. The store, to be known as Eas-. ter's Super Valu, will have a parking lot that will accommodate more than 100 cars. Hay said the store will be nf ultra-modern 1 design and will have many features including on-the-prenflses bakery depart- ment. Other features will include a housewares department and parcel pick up station. There will be a courtesy counter for utility bill paying, check cashing, postage stamps, money orders and bottle returns. There will be six check-out stations, featuring change computing cash registers. There will be a total of 228 lineal feet of refrigerated display cases offering meats, fruits and vegetables, frozen foods, ice cream and dairy products in addftion to the refrigerated bakery display. Super Valu said it would announce further details about the construction after bids are re- 'ceivp.d. The new store will be developed by General Management Corp., an Iowa corporation with headquarters in Des Moines. The company specializes in real estate development in Iowa and other midwestern states. General Management now owns several major shopping centers and other commercial properties which it has built for investment. It recently took over the various M. Bucksbaum Companies. Easter Brothers have been in the food business for 62 years. Brooder house burns just Plan to open before 70,000 birds arrive Fire Saturday afternoon destroyed a large brooder house and about 500 young pullets about 2'/a miles north and a mile west of Mason City. Manly firemen were aided by the Mason City department in fighting the blaze. The roof of the pole building had collapsed to the floor, firemen said. Edna Marrs, Mason City, owner of the building, said it was insured and had been leased to Grundmeier Hatchery, Northwood. Automatic feeding equipment had recently been installed. Grant Grundmeier, operator of the hatchery, had planned to put about 10,000 more birds in the house Saturday afternoon. Firemen said the east end of the 500-foot long building was on fire when they arrived. Fire fighting operations were hampered when the tank truck ran out of water, firemen said O NE of the most popular fellows among North Iowa's jet set right now should be Eugene Olson, English instructor at Luther College at Decorah. Olson shares with the youngsters the fascination to monsters in movies and on television. Olson has a book that will be marketed in January. The title is a mouthful — "Monsters, Maidens and Mayhem: A Pictorial History of the Hollywood Monsters." In it he has more than 50 photos from filmland's classics of fantasy and horror and traces the development of the monster fad from its beginnings to the current popularity. The careers and films of such monstermen as Lon Chaney, Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr., and the p r e s e n t-day madman. Vincent Price are examined. Rare sfills from such classics as "Phantom of the Opera," "Frankenstein," "D r a cula" and "King Kong" are featured in the paperback. Olson credits the depression for giving horror films their impetus in the thirties and television for causing their revival in the fifties and sixties. We still can recall clutching our dime in a sweaty palm and pushing it through the little rectangular hole in the boxoffiee window to see the original "Frankenstein" production 30 years ago. Until we caught a glimpse of the modern horror shows a few years back, we stoutly maintained that the Frankenstein monster could not be duplicated for sheer shock. But came "The Fly" and all his Technicolored friends and Frankenstein-Dracula and Co. were sent packing back to Transylvania. Olson says the early macabre masterpieces were a product of depression's omnipresence, but the new versions were results of the teen-agers' demand for "something different." "And about this time," Olson added, "it became popular to sight flying saucers and Hollywood producers got another message—alien beings frpm outer space." I n addition to recounting the history of Hollywood horror, Olson's book also discusses the legends that originally gave birth to vampires, werewolves and mummies' curses. Olson writes under the name of Brad Steiger and has more than 100 short stories to his credit. Don't worry about this horror craze, Mom. Even our own health expert, Dr. Molner, says it's OK. What's more, if some of the young gals can stand those awful hairdos they should be able to stomach a little Edgar Al Ian Poe!

Decker and Sons may be surprised to learn that the Navy's aircraft carriers aren't a whale of a lot more expensive to build than the cost of a pound of hamburger. A carrier costs about $2.40 a pound compared with hamburger at an average, of 39 cents. By the pound, carriers are cheaper than jet liners, which cost $41 a pound; imported caviar, $45 a pound; uranium 235, $63 a pound, and lube oil for wristwatches, $1,000 a pound . . .

Incidentally, Metal- craft received a nice full page plug in the latest issue of Heating and Air Conditioning Contractor magazine. The story, complete with a photo of a thinly-disguised photo of Fred Fenchel, tells of how name plates on equipment pay off in a highly competitive industry ... A minister at an Emmetsburg church, considering it no compliment to the Lord to grab a back seat every Sunday, had a special announcement at the jclose of a recent service. Said he: "Please do not leave your pew until those in the pew in front of you have left." Thus those up front departed first as the back rows sheepishly waited their turn . . .
