will have his chappell ORDINANCE NO 230 rpHERE is some comedy as well as serious aspect to Ordinance No 230 enacted in January under which the city js empowered to arrest and fine those con victed of illegal possession of intoxicating liquors up to and costs The ordinance is said to have been passed by the city council as a retaliative to the county because the board of supervisors refused to pay half of the expenses incurred in hiring undercover men last fall If this was the situation that bas been paid back many times over for No 230 has permitted the city to fine 30 persons 5100 each in the last three months This lucrative business for the city has brot a con sequently lethargy in convictions under the state laws In 1D28 62 persons were convicted of liquor violations ia the Cerro Gordo county district court In the first six months of 1929 there have been hardly a half dozen The answer to this is Ordinance No 230 True enough city ordinance prosecutions do not preclude state convictions A man may he punished by the city the state and the federal government for that matter But the operation of Ordinance No 230 thus far has revealed these things First that it is difficult to get a conviction in the district court after a man once has been punished even tho the punishment may not have been as severe as it should have been A recent grand jury threshed this matter over and refused to indict any of the cases orot before it after the police court conviction Second many of the defendants arrested by police Sandino has gone into exile in Mexico At any rate he isnt going to be without excitement A Chinese general canceled a war for Theres peace at a price THE OBSERVING am rather of the opinion that the interesting propos al contained in the follow ing contribution from Interested Church Worker will serve to arouse some thot on an important subject I recommend it to you for intelligent consideration I have been watching the activ ties of the churches of Mason City for a number of years churches are strong and generally doing an excellent work It is sel dom that there is what may be termed a poor audience on a Sun day morning The churches are gen erally wellequipped and with above average leadership But even Ine most optimistic would hardly contend that these churches are making a large suc cess Sunday evening The audiences I are generally small and made up of worshipers who attend from hab freicr Our Information bureau Is maintained solely to serve you What question can we answer for you There is no charge at all except 2 cents in coin or stamps

nonchurched can be reached and indifferent church members re claimed for aggressive work I believe the laymen generally would sanction this trial What say the ministers Who has an idea on the subject

and no one hears from them again Clearly many of these defendants do not get as stiff a sentence under the city ordinance as theywould if prosecuted under the statelaw1 A costs is not a heavy penalty for a bootlegger In the district court the fines range from upwards with jail and penitentiary sentences for bad offenders The city has a right to Ordinance No 230 There should however be a

courts But this is an exception For the average resident of Mason City there isnt much difference between city and county prosecution to cut off its supplies so that the city would not have to undergo what might prove to be an irreparable destructive bombardment All towns surrounding the city were gradually taken by storm Joppa the port of Jerusalem had been occupied and the British ad so far as the financial considerations are concerned He must pay his proportionate share for the opera vanced own the Surar Rir UP tion of both city and county government But it is highly important to everybody that the law be ob served and enforced Slaps on the wrist such as are being administered to liquor venders under the city ordinance are not conducive to banishment of the bootlegger Neither for that matter is a heavier fine administered by the county The difference is only one of degree It is of far more importance to the aver age tax payer that bootlegging be curbed than that the operation of the courts pour in a certain amount of revenue to city or county coffers Good stiff jail or pnitentiary sentences are what is needed and they are not going to come under the present system GIRLS WITH BRAINS ACCORDING to statistics compiled by womenn col leges in England brains are below par in the mar riage market Girls with high scholarship records to their credit receive fewer matrimonial proposals than their less intellectually endowed sisters Waiving the point that brains may be handicapped In competition with superficial beauty it is fair com ment to remark that brains and hearts are separate and distinct and often arc unrelated in Cupids scheme of things A toss of a curl a dimple in a cheek a gleam of eye may amite a man who remains cold in the presence of mere brains Once smitten his own and his Inamoratas brains if she has any count for little The poets from the distant past till now have testified to the maddening effect of love in robbing its victims of their brains Besides after all man does not fancy a superior or even a rival in brains sitting across the domestic hearth A brainy girl has conceitsmashing possibilities that are fearsome HE DIDNT FORGET rpERE comes a kind of glow in the heart to read that Col Robert Stewart until recently chairman of 1 the board of the Standard OH Co of Indiana has given Coe college 5200000 with which to build a library in honor of his father and mother Colonel Stewart is not a young man In fact it was more than 40 years ago that he was graduated from this same college It is a fine and inspiring thing to find that a man haa within him the continuing disposition to do honor to his parents to keep alight the candle of remem brance Few of ua can build libraries Ail of na can do somethingto show that love and remembrance

country ana has reduced 15 pounds I feel a personal interest in President Hoovers weight because when he was food administrator during the war I dedicated my book on weight re duction to him The inscription of the war edi tion read Dedicated by permis sion to Herbert Hoover in whose capable bands lies the gigantic task of feeding the world After the book was published I sent a copy to Mrs Hoover writing un der the inscription To Mrs Hoover In whose capable hands lies the task of feeding Herbert Hoover If I had known he was going to be overweight I wouldnt have omitted I had a charming letter from Mrs Hoover thanking me and adding that she and her son Allen DR LULU HUNT belonged to the same school FETER3 artists that my nenhew had enjoyed the little book very much I must explain that my nephew who was then 10 years old illustrated my exercises with little tooth pick figures Yes Im glad President Hoover haa reduced Ills weight When you begin to get fat you begin to die And Im glad that he Is keeping up his health pro gram not only on account of his own preservation but because it will influence all of his devoted admir ers to emulate him Viva Hoover Still the Life Saver heres a little something on gaining 1 Dear Dr Lulu I have been using your gaining pamphlet and it has done wonders for me I was very much underweight and nervous but I have gained so much and I feel so much better MRS W know about this But what I do know ia that the driver who moves only 15 or 20 miles an hour is ever so much more a menace to others and see what C F F thinks of a lnai1 the one

stepped on the gas to get away thinking only of him self This same type of person would do the same thing it is certain if his victim had been a person He has no regard for other people or their

to learn was that the town pump isnt an extinct institution Theres one like the one of your boyhood or girlhood days with community dipper and RosavnUe between Waukon and McGregor And an interesting historical fact youll learn over in that Switzer land of Iowa region is that JefCev son Davis later to be president of the confederacy once operated n sawmill on the Yellow rivet about two miles from its confluence with the Mississippi It was at this iril that the lumber was prepared for the building of Fort Crowford across the river from McGregor Later I believe it was Mr Davir was stationed at

the gaining foods par excellence And three or four ripe bananas a day If there happens to be a deficiency of the vitamin B the foods containing this appetite stimulating vita min should be increased The foods high in it are Tomatoes raw canned or beans fresh cabbage spinach yeast and yeast extracts Alfalfa is also listed and there is no reason that I know of why alfalfa leaves cannot be used in salads I know cows like em The whole grain breads and cereals also contain a goodly amount of vitamin B More rest and sleep are also needed in the gaining program The pamphlet Mrs W used also has
