About 28 miles of paving are scheduled for completion this year on the primary hithways of the 18 counties in the district- less than the number of miles scheduled in one of the counties in the days when Iowa was coins full tilt at the chore of "gettinf out of the mud," In addition there are 43 miles of grading and blacktop surfacing on this year's primary road schedules, Zack said. Many more miles than that will be graded on iarm- to-market roads of the district, however. And even though these roads are local in nature, work still is contracted by the the highway commission and supervised by its employes. Financing o£ the work is by state and federal funds. Work was resumed last week on the 13th street underpass in Mason City by the Feller Construction company, Rochester, Minn., Zack reported. Excavation for sewers has begun, he said, and lowering of the street -weft of the site on 13th and on Pennsylvania N. £., both north and south of 13th, can be done while the contractor is waiting for the steel beams. No definite delivery dale has yet been promised on the steel, he said. Zack listed the primary road projects across the district from west to east as follows: No. 226, relocation of about 10 miles from Titonka south a mile west of the old road—Bridges and culverts are being built and the grading completed this year; present plans are to blacktop the road. No. Ill, from Britt to Woden, about 15 miles—Bridges and culverts are being built and it is expected to complete the grading this year; present plans are for blacktop surfacing. No. 9, between Forest City and Fertile, about 8 miles—Bridges are being built and the paving contract has been let'to the Fred Carlson Construction company, Decorah, which expects to start work about Aug. 1 and complete it this year. No. 65, the bridge 4 miles north of Hampton has been completed and the approaches paved. It will be ready for traffic about June 1. No. 14, about 8 miles of paving from 2 miles north of Greene to the junction with No. 147—The last bridge is being completed and the grading is done. Koss Construction company, Des Moines, expects to complete the paving contract this year. No. 14, 7 miles oj paving between Allison and Parkesburg— Grading and bridging was completed last year and bids were taken May 13 on the paving but no contract has been let yet.

This scene was duplicated at a style show held in the Wedgewood room of Hotel Hanford in the afternoon before an audience of more than 300 fashion-minded Mason Cityans. Here the models are shown *~ in clothes the "well dressed' air travelers" might be wearing as they arrive by plane at their chosen vacation spot this summer. Other clothes modeled at the show were those worn at the resort, either by an active participant in sports or by a spectator; "devastating negligee" for the "undressed" hours and formal gowns for the night life. A facsimile of a plane furnished the background for the show. Piano music was played by Ralph Geer as the numbers were announced. 272, about 7 miles from east 'to No. 63—Grading, been started by Booth and Olson, Sioux City, who expect to have it open for traffic by July 15.

Edwards Field Day Fishing at Kiwanis Club Fish day came on Kiwanis day this week and the club made it a "field day" at the luncheon meeting at Hotel Hanford. The program included "Corn- pleat Angler" Frank C. Goodman as special guest speaker, special music with Lester Milligan leading at the piano, special costumes with Dave Diercfcs winning the Drize and a special menu of fish 'caught" at Clear Lake early Thursday morning. Preliminary to Mr. Goodman's talk the club members san B ' "Good Old Fishin' It Ain't What It Used .o Be." dedicated, according to Song Leader Millisan, "to fishermen as a natural reflection of what happened at Clear Lake" on fish day morning. Tall fish stories were told by A. L. "Doc" Schmidt, Lowell Weir and Mr. Diercks, the latter taking 1 credit for having provided his fellow Kiwanians with their fish luncheon. Mr. Goodman opened his talk by describing the disease of "dementia piscatores" that came over him each spring as the fishing season drew near. He related that his usual trip to Canada would be somewhat delayed this year due to the adians 'terrific winter" that Can- were just pulling themselves out of—a winter with snow so deep that 25 moose were reported to have broken their legs falling through- house roofs; that CITY DUMPS ARE CLOSER, BETTER THAN ROADSIDES City, County Officials Warn of Penalties for Defacing Public Roads Mason City's spring cleanup has the full approval of the county board of supervisors and local peace officers. Their only_ complaint is that some Mason Cityans go to unusual and unnecessary pains to dispose of their rubbish and garbage by hauling it out of the city and dumping it along the county highways. The official city dumps are located much closer and more con- viently, it was pointed out Friday. There are 2 in Mason City: 1. On Monroe S. W.. south of 6th street across the Milwaukee tracks. Z. On the west side of Carolina N. E., at about 16th N. £., on the bank of the Winnebago river. "Each spring we have to send the highway crews and trucks out for a i couple of days to clean up the right of ways," said Supervisor E. R. "Dick" Steinberg, "and each year someone is brought into police court to pay a fine after he has been escorted by the sheriff to clean up the mess he made. "It would be much easier and cheaper to haul it to the city dump." farmers had been able to oil their windmills for the first time in 25 years and that the temperature \vas finally arrived at by a 6 foot thermometer procured at Medicine Hat with the zero reading at the top. The ascending order of fish as to size, said Mr. Goodman, is the minnow, trout, northern pike, shark and—"the one that got away." Mr. Goodman closed his talk with a fishing tale concerning himself and his fellow townsman, Erdix Swift. In their tent near a small lake in the north woods, prepared with a quart of oil of citronella to fight the mosquitoes, Lhe 2 men one evening were dining on "cremated" bacon when in stalked a huge mosquito, grabbed the bottle by the neck and made out of the tent opening with it. Mr. Swift seized his rifle and went outside. Looking around he spied the intruder with some pals in the top of a tree, passing the bottle of citronella around and singing ".Sweet Adeline." In that region, according to Mr. Goodman, were other monstrosities. The fish stayed clear of Mr. Swift when the 2 men went fishing. Finally Mr. Swift left Mr. Goodman at home and went out alone. At length a large bass popped up, took a look at the occupant in the boat and piped, "Where's Goodman?" But Mr. Swift did get his catch with only a little interference from the game warden who came upon him later with a "baby" bass only 27 inches long and made him throw it back in the lake. Mr. Goodman was presented by Mr. Schmidt who had charge of the program. NOTICE Effective FRIDAY, MAY 16 Pasteurized Milk 16c per qt. Homogenized Vitamin D. 16c per qt. 50-50 16c per pt.
