Sunday night Shut-ins again to get tour of Yule lighting The Salvation Army and Ki- \vanis Club are asking Mason Cityans to be sure their outdoor Christmas decorations are lighted and working Sunday evening. ft is the night of the sixth annual Christmas Caravan in which from 170 to 200 shut-ins will be given a tour of the city to see the lighted displays in residential neighborhoods and downtown. The Kiwanis Club has provided some 40 cars and drivers annually since the Christmas Caravan was inaugurated in Cor goes out of control in one of five accidents J.

A car driven by Skarlis about 11 p.m. Thursday was in one of five accidents reported Thursday and early Friday. Police said Skarlis, driving the city route of Highway 18, lost control of his car as he turned onto 1st SW from eastbound S. Crescent. The sport car went up over the curb in front of 726 1st SW, traveled 30 feet, sideswiped a tree, bounced off the tree and continued another 60 feet back onto the street. Skarlis was taken to Mercy Hospital where he received five stitches for a head laceration. Car damage included the left rear door, fender and wheel, cracks in the fiberglass roof and lower body panel damage. In another accident, Hugh Edward Unger, 43, 421 2nd NE, forfeited a $15 bond on a charge of improper entering of a stop intersection. Police said Unger, driving east on 2nd NE, was in an accident with a car driven north on S. Pennsylvania by Robert F.

As an ordinance, the new subdivision regulations lions suggested Thursday, other additions and for printing the ordinance in its final form. Although the new ordinance! specific. Ladwig said the regulations show a developer what is expected by the planning commission and thus save the time One of the main points of dis- c\ission Thursday night was the power of the city to control subdivision development in an area one mile from the city limits. At present, both the city antj Mn basically it K the rulings and concepts in the city's present land subdivision ordinance.

Decker & Sons packing plant by Everett De Loss Silver, Austin, rolled into a diesel tractor parked at the loading dock by Alfred Sommerfeld, Clam Falls, b. Police said the brakes on the Silver vehicle failed to hold. Damage included the front of the Silver tractor and the right side of the Sommerfeld tractor. A car driven north on S. Federal near 2nd South by Robert John Slusarszyk, 36 Sunny Circle, was damaged in the rear when it was in an accident with another car driven by Stephen Vlahos, rural Hampton. The only damage reported was the rear bumper and panel of the Slusarczyk car. A collision Friday morning involved cars driven by Kenneth Owen Elliott, 1603 S. Massachusetts, and Sheryl Kay Norris, 16, Route 4, Mason City. Police said the Elliott car was turning right onto N. Georgia from westbound E. State and the Norris car was being parked on E. State. Miss Norris reported that she was planning to back up, but accidently placed the car in drive. As the car went forward, it was in the collision with the turning Elliott car. The only damage was the right front door of the Elliott car. shopping center parking lot. The route the long line of vehicles will follow has been selected by police on the basis of where the most lighted displays can be seen without leading the cara- an into deadends or blocking s own way. Police, highway patrol, sher- 'f's office and fire department fficial vehicles will be inter- persed throughout the lineup o help assure safety for the aravan participants. The law nforcement officers also pro- ide protection ahead of the aravan by blocking cross traf- c at intersections as the cara- an approaches. For many of the shut-ins, the Christmas caravan is the only ,'inter outing. For a few, it is he only trip away from their csidences during the entire ear. The success of the local pro;ram has motivated similar pre- Ihristmas tours for shut-ins in ther communities, by various ivic groups. Since the Kiwanis Club pro- ides the numerous cars and drivers, the annual tour to cheer ursing home residents is done t very little cost to the Salva- ion Army, which is using its Christmas appeal fund now to neet more pressing holiday iceds of the unfortunate in Maon City and Cerro Gordo Coun- y.

If no action s taken within that time, the property involved is free for development. A section of thc proposed or- linance also allows modification, of subdivision regulations when thc commission considers a plan and program for a new type neighborhood unit. Adequate public spaces and improvements for traffic circulation, recreation, light, air, and public utilities service needs of the tract must he provided. Calling some subdivisions "equal divisions of mediocrity," The plant produces 2,2 million allons of fresh water a day — veil above the normal require- ncnts of the base's population.

In all, three-unit desalini /.alion plant, the 12,500-kilowat lower plant and related facil itics cost about $10.7 million. Castro abruptly shut of Guanlanamo's fresh water source — river water which entered the base through a pipeline — last Feb. fi. He did so in retaliation for U.S. seizure of some Cuban fishermen in American waters. Less than a month later, Castro offered to turn thc water back on, but the United States spurned that offer. This country had been buying waler from Cuba for about $14,000 a month POOR SOIL Six-sevenths of thc area of Iceland is considered unproductive. Ladwig said that the modification section allows for nr-w con- ccpts in subdivision development to he used. Another innovation of the proposed ordinance is a section which states that "in all subdivisions due regard shall be given to the preservation of natural features such as largs trees, watercourses, historical and similar features." Thc new ordinance also sets up relatively minor modifications in block length, alley width in business areas, cul-de-sac length and crosswalks. Some minor adjustments also have hccn made in street right-of-way and paving widths.
