BOOKKEEPING SUPPLIES, at the Algona Upper Das Moines office. County Has A Nice Road Fund For 1950 Use Kossuth county will have about a half million dollars to use in construction or improvement of farm-to-market roads in the county in 1950, according to information from the Iowa Good Roads Association, Inc., Des Moines. The organization listed the following figures for Kossirth county: Unobligated balance, Dec. 31, 1949 — $219,865. Estimated income, road use tax fund, 1950 — $91,625. Federal aid available—$198,255. Total, farm-to-market road fund, area basis — $509,745. Also A State Cut In the secondary road construction fund, estimated receipts from the road use tax fund for 1950 will be $356,321-, which totals up to an estimated rund available, exclusive of farm-to-market road funds apportioned on need or equalization basis, county balances on hand ana receipts from property taxes, of a grand sum of $866,066. It is also estimated that there will be approximately $8,762,000 apportioned among the counties by the State Highway Commission on a "need" or equalization basis in 1950. What Kossuth's share of this fund might be is not now known. Costs From 1949 Farm - to - market contracts awarded for grading work in Kossuth county in 1949 cost $3,077 per mile, exclusive of bridges. Contracts for gravel or crushed stone surfacing cost $862 per mile. From these figures it is possible to figure about what can be done locally with the fund available. Indications are that 1950 will be one of Iowa's biggest years in secondary road construction. County Welfare Gets $16,428 Kossuth county received $16,628.90 for welfare work during the month of February. This amount is slightly above the usual monthly payment received by the county. Old age assistance accounted for the lion's share of this figure, with $13,744.90 going to 288 persons, averaging $47.72. Aid to 95 dependent children amounted to $2,768.50 and this was for 34 cases. Average per child was $29.14. Needy blind received $155.50, divided among three cases. Behind The Movie Sets WITH BUDDY MASON You wouldn't Ihink thai being a deep-sea diver for the 126th N. Y. Engineers in the First World War would help a makeup man today— but it didl Harry Ross, studio cosmetician, had a problem common to all makeuf) men. He could never get sponges soft enough to hold pancake makeup properly. Game wardens protect sponge fields, and divers are not allowed to harvest the baby sponges so dear to the hearts of all movie makeup artists. The smallest sponges brought up are sold right at the piers and never reach the commercial markets. Hence, makeup men prize the smaller sponge when they obtain one. The little ones have a finer cellular texture and do not absorb too much makeup. Unlike the small sponges cut from the larger ones, the fine surface distributes a lighter layer of coloring more evenly. Scarce to the point of rarity, the smallest sponges that can be legally harvested become precious possessions to a makup man. When he procures such a sponge, he considers himself quite fortunate. ' It remained for Harry Ross to realize the makeup man's dream of opulence. Harry hit the sponge jackpot! When Arthur Lake went to Tarpon Springs, Fla., to make "16 Fathoms Deep" he took Ross and his makeup kit along. As they made the deep-sea scenes, in the sponge beds off the Florida coast, "Harry was a more than interested spectator. Engaging the game warden, who accompanied the diving barge, in conversation, he complained about the size of the sponges being brought to the surface. The warden, amused at Harry's frustration, remarked, "They're bringing up commercial sponges. If you don't want that kind, why don't you go down and get the size you want? 1 ' Harry laughed. "I suppose I can bring up and keep anything I like down there?" Laughingly, the warden assured him that he could, never dreaming what was about to happen. That did it! Harry lost no ;Ume in; convincing the diving"*cr«w that he was an'old hand at 'OHr- ing. To the amazement of the warden, Harry was soon slipping over the side of the barge in a diving suit. Leaning over the rail to watch Harry working the bottom, the warden swore softly to himself and turned to the amused barge captain. "Get me a shore boat," he grumbled, "I'm going ashore. I don't dare to be here when he comes up with his loot. They'd drum me out of the service, but I did give him my word!" As far as rare possessions are concerned, Harry Ross is now. the richest makeup man in Hollywood. "His fellow cosmeticians call him Mr. ROSS. Benevolently, he bestows a baby sponge to deserving colleagues upon occasion. Harry is in makeup man's heaven! And all because he learned deep-sea diving with the Army Engineers! * * * Did you know thai all girl dogs in pictures are really boy dogs? I have this on the authority of Lionel Comport who trains many of the dogs seen in the movies. To quote Lionel, "The females learn tricks quicker — but they also forget 'em faster!" * * • "It Looks Better In Lights" department: Marjorle Bitzer prefers the name, Lynn Bari.
