Sortie news manufacturer at Dows sen tout a mild item dated April 4, which read as follows: "The school board of the township in which the town of LuVerne is situated, which was swept two years ago, haa ordered cyclone caves to be built at each of the six school houses in the district. The plan is evidently a good one, and even if a storm does not strike that section they are confident of a shelter in case of another visitation." The successful run of this piece of news evidently encouraged the correspondent, for a new item from Dows dated April 8 has appeared of much more startling character. It has appeared in all the dailies and we clip from the Chicago TimesHerald: "The school directors in the district of LuVerne, a short distance from Dows, do not propose to have any more of the pupils under their charge killed by cyclones. Tho section was swept by a destructive cyclone a few years ago and several lives lost. In order that the.children and teachers may be furnished some protection from,such disasters In future the board has ordered a cyclone cave dug at each of the school-houses in the district." LuVerne is a storm center, in a way, and has cyclones, of akind, but this Dows report Is clearly libelous. Mason City Not In It. J. H. Wheeler writes to the Mason City Globe-Gazette about the normal school bill: Last, but by no means least, Mason City stood no more show of getting one of the proposed state normal schools than Horizontal Bill Morrison does of being the next president of the United States. The school for northwest Iowa would have gone to northwest Iowa, and not to the extreme north central part of the state. Nobody with whom I have talked on the subject entertained the slightest shadow of opinion that Mason City could by any possibility get one of the proposed schools. Mason City may as well, once for all, give ap all hope of ever getting a state normal school. It is built in the wrong place. Not only this, but the establishment of a subsidized state school at Algona, Ft. Dodge, Sheldon and Le Mars can only have the tendency to kill off any educational Institution which private enterprise may in time attempt to build up iii Mason school bill is dead. City.

DB. JOHN E.
