GLOBEGAZETTE SATURDAY SEPT 17 1927 Advertising Hates Furnished on Application Entered at the Postofflco at Mason City Iowa as SecondClass Matter STANDARDIZED It is upsetting to read that progress is lay ing its standardized hand upon Hie little country hotels of Prance just at the time when low steamship rates and lower living costs in France are making it possible for hundreds of thousands of Americans to visit thai coun try The tradition of these French inns seemed too established almost too sacred to be rash y disturbed There they were until recently those liny hostelries their dining rooms bear ing the marks of the smoke of centuriesand Iheir sleeping rooms set out with old furni ture In their desire to make their houses modern the proprietors are imitating tho metropolitan cuisine with more ambition than success and have made the tragic mis take of replacing the ancient furnishings with cheap that opposed to out of style for some few years The most radical change or crowning in sult is the installation of radio loud speakers in these roadside taverns once so charming not only for their food and historic flavor but for their quiet The present orgy of radio music cannot make up for the old pleasure vjH fVin On mulco ui tho baker as they passed the open window But proprietors of Americas old inns and hotels have been tricked into making the same fatal error Not being students of human nature they could not know that the tourist in a foreign land or a distant part of his own country wants to find them unchanged and all the peculiar characteristics of the locality intact The northerner wants southern cook ing when he travels in the south and the southerner wants northern cooking when he visits the north but the north seems just as bent on imitating the south as the south on copying the menus of the north MORE DEFINITE NOW It hasnt been very long since backers of the SI Lawrence waterway were talking in rather general terms about the desirability of the project Since the report of fhe St Lawrence commission of the United Stales was made however there has been an element of definiteness in the discussion This definite seaway program has been set up as a challenge and a goal A treaty drawn in 3927 Digging begun in 1928 Opened for commerce in This is quoted from the report referred to in the foregoing The construction of the shipway from the Great Lakes to tho sea is Imperative both for the relief nnd fov tho future development of a vast area in tho in terior of tho continent It has been estimated that tho values in a single year to tho farmers alone would enual the capital cost of tlic If the project is as important in its bear ing on the future development of the mid continent as Mr Hoover and his associates be lieve it o be there

attention Champions come and go while the dub goes on dubbing forever Considerthe club in golf From the tec he lammed one straight and true a couple of hundred yards only lo see it hit the top of a bunker and fall back into the ditch He drops out plays three with a midiron and ends an other long shot in a water hazard Three more and he is on the green He takes the dubs usual three putts and makes a twelve Because his game is never championship stuff after each hole he soliloquizes within the hearing of others on the frightful game he is playing on that particular day and the better his score the louder his soliloquy On the clubhouse typewriter he types his score after this manner Hope of some day beating the club record springs eternal in the dubs breast and he dreams nights of making a hole in one But they are only hopes and dreams Give the dub his due He contributes the comedy and besides supports the clubs pros and champions Ho may be a dub not be cause he dubs on the links and in his other pastimes but because he pays all the bills ind gets none of the committee places pub licity and fame Rotten as it he loves the game As long as there are buzz saws there will be
