"N.N.d." of Carner has a couple ideas for what lie believes lo be nnidt needed ^ifls to North Iowa's poocli pop- ulal ion. Dog-lovers undoubtedly will he <juick to rise lo the <!c frnsivr, hut our Garner render makes it fjuite plain lie is no dot; hater, lie merely doesn't like some of Ilieir hahits. Here's what he has lo say: "We wonder if the Globe- (!a/etle readers noticed several days ago the writciip from New York cnlilled 'Self- Service Hiskcls for Fido — Special gifts for real top wigs this Christmas'? "There, are two things that should !>e invented and added to this list of gift suggestions —whether Fido is a him or a her . . . Kvery town will appreciate them since there's always a big population explosion of Fidoes every lime somebody moves in with a new pup. "First, a bone retriever — so that they'll stay on the lawn of tho dog's owner. Second, an 'indoor outhouse.' Our stores really should have them right now since this cold weather isn't fit for Fido to bo out nnyway — but they'll have )o hurry since Fido can't waitl "If .somebody can invent these two tilings right away a lot of Fidoes and their neighbors will say thanks for this kind deed. "Then next spring we can go to the stores where they sell fertili/ers and select the kind that we wish for our own lawns and gardens! (Also, maybe (lie fcrlili/er corn- panics would make (liern- selves a lot more money.)"

By JAMES R.OWENS Public education and broadcasting are both fields bound by D mass of regulations and laws. Setting up an educational telc- /ision station then — and one nvolving laws of two states — :an lead into a snarl of local, state and federal red tape. But after unraveling all the red tape that seems lo apply, consultants say there are no legal bars lo having an educa- ional TV station to serve an area including Mason City and ficult to determine whether or not thai phrase should be laken with tongue in check. Double-decker Julian Chrischilles of the Algona Upper Des Moines tells this little story that is too good not to pass along. It scorns an Algona woman decided to luiy a new hat for a coming wedding to which she was invited. After considerable looking and deliberation, she found just the bonnet she wanted — and her ego was bolstered by the many compliments s li e received from the clerks in (lie store. When she brought it home and tried it on again, she liked it even belter. Hut she lucked it away — to be worn first officially on Ibc day of the wedding. That day came. As she was preparing to don the hat, she rlropped it — and il fell into two pieces. Baffled she wai until the light struck her. She had bought not one, but two hats. One had been sitting on top of the other and the colors and shapes matched perfectly. Separately, she didn'l like the hat (or should we say hats?), but together they were fine. So she wore the two to the wedding just as she had purchased them. The amused store owner . charged her no more, after she told him the story, even • though she had paid for only . one. All of which proves that women apparently want their hats to look like cake — double-layered. Apple kings When it comes to selling apples, Mason City's Klwanis •'* Club has five salesmen that make those depression days I ^ corner businessmen look like pikers. Kvery year (lie Kiwanians sell a car load of apples, the proceeds of which go for civic- projects. Last month th'ey peddled '15K full boxes and 2f)() half-boxes. After paying the wholesaler, (he net. was about $1,300 — which is about average. Nothing average about Larry Payno, though. H» por sonally sold $872 worth of tho rosy fruit I 1'ayne really wasn't chiil lenged, but there nre fmii olhers worthy of special at tcnlion. Dave Kolinsky sold $14!), Fred Wagner $121, Hog Pallon $118 and Parke Marshall Sinn. So if you sec any of these fellows working part-time al any of our food stores, now you'll know the reason why. Why not round? We finally discovered why manhole covers always are round. .Seems Ilia! in the early days of manhole covers (probably when Max Hiley was a lad) they always were square, oblong, even diamond shaped. Bui the workmen kept dropping I lie covers through the holes and it look half a day to get them out again. Finally some bright ^ny .sug- gesled that the only cover that couldn't fall through own hole was n round one. If you have a few .spare moments one of these nice warm nights, walk mil into the street and try it. Hut don' tell your kids -- if anybody can squeeze otic through it'll be one of them! Mrs. Mary Sloan dies at Cresco Mrs. Smith funeral set for Saturday Mrs. (''rank (Gertie) .Smith 1, died Thursday in a Mason ity nursing home. She had ved in Mason City If) years nd made her home at I.'JOI N. \danjs, Mrs. Smilli was born Dec. li, H8:i, at Akron, daughter of ames and Leah (Wood) Smith. She spent most of her life in lie Iowa Kalis and Alden area. She was married to Frank Smith, Nov. Hi, iO(M.

(Phyllis) Sprung, Sheffield, and Mrs Vlelvin (Gencvicve) Deshler Sheffield, IS grandchildren, several great-grandchildren and a sisler, Jennie Hcinhardl, Iowa Falls. She was preceded in death by a grandson, two broth ers and a sister. Mrs. Smith was a member o tin- Grace Evangelical Unitct irclhreri Church of Mason City the Austin-Albert Lea, Minn., region. In the formal language of the National Associalion of Educa ;ional Broadcaslcrs reporl: "No egal barriers of any type exisl in cither Minncsola or Iowa or among federal statutes which would militate against the rcc- immcndcd plan of administration and operation and support of the proposed station." State laws govern what school districts may or may not do in supporting educational services. State laws also regulate form- ng of corporations such as the non-profit group proposed to operate a station here. Federal law and regulations govern assigning of television channels and providing match- ng funds for educational proj- eels such as buying equipment to start an educational television station. Setting up of a non-profit corporation to, operate an educational TV station is not unique, the consultants point out. About a third of such stations in the nation now are under lhat type of operation. Another third of existing educational TV stations are owned by individual public school districts, and the final third are owned by colleges and universities. However, neilher Masonl City, Austin nor Albert -Lea alone could operate a school district station, and there is no major college or university in the area. The consultants see several advantages is setting up such a corporation. Ft would, they point out, be able to establish a tax-exempt status under both Iowa and federal regulations and receive tax- deductible gifts from interested organizations, foundations and individuals. Because no other educational TV station is serving the region, the consultants say, Ihe new enterprise could "easily maintain an independent status in order lo provide a unique service adapted lo the particular needs of its own area." The corporation would handle such matters as allocation of broadcasting lime to meet area needs and regulation of operating procedures under federal and stale rules. It would hire the personnel lo handle details of stalion management and op eralion. The corporation board, according to the report, also would acl as the parent agency for co- al Communications Commission. There are no VHP channels available here. VHF is the standard type of channels used >y commercial TV in the area. While UHF channels are available, none has yet been assigned for non-commercial use n this precise area. For technical reasons, the lower the channel number—representing frequency—the betler the TV coverage that can be expected. After explaining FCC actions and policies so far, the consultants state thai Iheir own independenl analysis shows Ihe lowest channel number which COULD be used to serve the area under FCC requirements is Channel 15. The report also goes into a number of other channel assign mcnt possibilities which exist in the area.

Since the ansmission site would be in lis stale, il is recommended hal the corporation be formed ndcr Iowa law, although with cprcsenlalion from bolh slales. As noted since the very start f Ihe study, while school districts may nol contribute funds to set up a television station, purchase of educational services by districls can legally provide funds toward stalion operation.

Among the legally permiss ible future possibilities of the proposed North Iowa-Southern Minnesota station is intercon nection with educational tele vision stations at Des Moines or the Twin Cities, or both. The capital cost of setting up such a connection from the Twin Cities is about $55,000, and year ly operating costs would be around $9,000. Capital cost o a Des Moines connection wouk be about $69,000 and operating costs, about $11,000. Connection could be by microwave relay o the signals to North Iowa.

The report points out that >oth the Minnesota and Iowa gislatures have expressed in- erest in and approval of the dea of an interconnected non- ommercial educational televi ion network. Work toward such a. network n the Midwest is being done by Midwestern Educational Televi- ion, Inc. That non-profit group ncludes Des Moines and Twin Cities stations plus other sta ions in the Dalco'tas, Nebraska Minnesota and Illinois. Midwtst Educational Television, Inc., is only one of a num- jer of regional and national organizations which could provide advice or services to a station Here, according to the consultants. Besides merely stating the legal possibilities, the study report reproduces state and t national legislative documents' affecting educational TV, examples of corporation articles and bylaws for an educational station, suggested program policies and even an. example of a petition for reservation of a TV channel. The report, in short, contains a legal blueprint from which North lowans and Southern Minnesotans could build an educational TV station organization.

State St. TIME LARGE LOAN PLAN Potato growers' troubles in ther parts of the nation that re starting to hurt housewives n Iowa and elsewhere did bene- it North Iowa growers to a light extent, at least. Wholesale prices have in- Teased about $1.35 to $1.40 a mndredweight in the Mason ^ity area in the last few weeks, umping cheaper grades from around 59 to 89 cents for 10 pounds in most stores and top ;rade from around 79 cents to 11.19. While local wholesalers did not give their prices to stores, hey did report the sudden jump Struebe rites are Saturday Miss Alice Struefae, 90,, died Thursday in a Mason City nurs- ng home. She had lived in Mason City since 1903. A native of Glenhaven, Wis., she was born May 1, 1874, daughter of John and Anna tfarie (Brand) Struebe. Surviving is a sister, Anna Dale, Milwaukee. There are two nieces, Miss Doris LaGasse and Imma Troening, both of Mason !ity. The funeral will be at 2 p.m. Saturday at the McAuley-Bremer Chapel. The Rev. George Ad tins, pastor of the First Chris- ;ian Church, will officiate. Burial will be in Memorial Park emetery. Pallbearers s e 1 e cted are George Atkinson, James Angel Anton Anderson and Vern Steil. Mrs. Wallace Allen will be organist and Nora and Laura Faktor will be in charge of flowers, that has occurred since the first of the month. A Des. Moines vholesaler said potatoes sold to retailers for $2.98 a year ago are from $6 lo $6.50 a hundred- weighl now. Local men agreed that the prices probably will remain at a high level until potatoes from .he South come into the market next May. One wholesaler said that the price increase has started to be reflected also in higher prices for such items as instant mashed potatoes and 'rozen french fries as well as julk growers. Jack Kennedy, a Clear Lake potato grower, said that there was about a 10 per cent reduc- lion in potato production nationally this year. Spring and fall frosts hurt in Idaho and other states where production is normally heavy. While North Iowa growers had a reduction in production also, it was not so extreme here as elsewhere, Kennedy said. As a result, growers in this area more than made up the loss by receipt of higher prices being paid. The big jump in price came around Oct. 10 when the freeze struck Idaho. Some North Iowa growers already had sold all their crop by that time, but even before that prices were good. Kennedy said that practically all potaloes grown in this area have been marketed already. One wholesaler said he believes the higher prices now are a move by suppliers to make supplies last until new polatoes come onlo the market in the spring.
