Postoffltce at Mason City as Second Class Matter Nothing Is so firmly believed as what wo least MONTAIGNE I Nothi I THE PERILS OF BRIDGE TTftBLL the expected has happened Down in Kansas City a woman killed her hus after he had muffed a fourspade bid at Bridge jr Weve ail been waiting for this having sat many a time uncomfortably at a bridge table and watched a family spat brewing when husband or wife consider that her bridge and life partner was messing the pIay Thus far the family jars have rooked a number of homes on their foundations but it had always stopped short of murder But with the increasing ser iousness with which bridge is regarded in the Amer ican home murder was inevitable This Incident should be a warning to hostesses vnot to mention husbands Hostesses should establish a rule never to permit husbands and wives to play to gether in order to save themselves from complicity in dark deeds And husbands should learn always to bld their hands plenty low when unavoidably playing lwlth their wives in orcer to let their wives do the f playing Also it might be added as instruction to husbands jjthat even if the wife gets set four tricks only the will fail to murmur consoling somethings about the strong cards against her or the fiendish luck ruined her fineness After all life is sweet Something has got to be done to make bridge safe r husbands In fact sometning should be done to make bridge safe for the whole family circle For Awhile it is most often we believe the woman who ex plodes when her husband cubs hia play nevertheless are men who sometimes tempt fate by criticizing eir wives across the table The situation has resolved itself into this choice for American husbands Either study your bridge at tie hands of the masters or equip yourself with bullet proof vests Wary males will do both KING FOOTBALL CRITICS modern college football picture it rs an organized antJ commercialized spectacle They even complain that the cheering sections are organ ized aad lack that desired amateurish spontaneity rFew will deny that college football today is a big business with some teams collecting as much as in gate receipts in one short season and with j corps of high salaried coaches and trainers and large squads of subsidized players but after all thecom lalism found in football is something different j from that associated with professional baseball It may be traditions it may be the players and it may a difference in those who the gridiron stands land those who fill the baseball bleachers but com pared with baseball the sport of football is decidedly f unprofessional and uncommercialized The football player woo excels under its present I stage of development must have physical endftrance and strength and mental alertness Both are splendid qualities for the business of making a living out of T sportdom No better evidence that football is played to the kings taste today could be found than the fact I that never was the sport as popular as now never J was it better played and never did it so strongly compete with baseball for the coveted title of the Great American Game m AN EPOCHAL CONFERENCE B approaching attempt on the part of President Hoover and Prime Minister MacDonald to lay the groundwork for an understanding between the United States and Great Britain that shall reduce armaments and the chances of war calls to mind this quotation from Charles Sumner Give me the money that 1ms lieen spent in wnr anil I will clothe every man woman and child In an attire of which Icings and queens would l0 rouI I wi build a scliooihouse In every vnl ley over Ihe whole earth I will crown every liill Klde with a place of worship consecrated to the gospel of peace JV There have been few things more significant iu all

are than 300 American businessmen and others who a million or more Somebody says insurance does it pay dividends enough Thats worth looking into here must be some reason for the fact that the moat

ground and the embryo gains nourishment first from the cocoa nut milk and as the growth of the plant advances the white meat which we eat becomes soft and spongy and also feeds the young plant After a

Northampton Mass An expression of gratitude to God for his gifts to us will give us peace when we become restless What a treasure it would be to the bedridden cripple if he coulcl get offhis bed leave the house and stand beneatli the blue sky What a pleasure it would be for the blind man if he could again see the faces of those he loves and look upon the visible wonders of nature How pleasant would be the sound of voices of church hymns of the celestial symphonies of the wind blowing thru the trees to the deaf We can walk and travel at will we can see every thing about us and hear and yet we do not feel that we have experienced complete satisfaction The soul becomes restless and disquiet Why Because wo do not seek peace by expressing to God our gratitude for the gifts he has given us THREE THE OBSERVING hope Mason City entera sin cerely and effectively into the fire prevention week which gets under way Sunday Ma son Citys tragedy of the summer riveted this communitys attention on one phase of the fire problem and singularly enough the big poster Issued by the state fire marshal in connection with the an i unceraent of fire prevention week contains a grim reminder of that tragedy Have you noticed it It would be a good time to check up on all the possible fire hazards about your home or your business Is your furnace in good condition Has your rubbish heap been disposed of Are you being sufficiently careful with kerosene and gasoline and with cleaning preparations Better start a little inventory have this interesting com munication from W W quite evidently a resident of Forest Park or Wildwood on a sub ject brot up in this department last week Referring to your first explo sion in last Saturday nights issue relative to being held up at the rail road crossings It is unnecessary for you to go as far away as Ventura or Algona to find that condition You need not go any further than the Rock Island and Great Western crossing on First street northwest where pedestrians and autos arc held up and delayed numerous times every day and in many instances are compelled to turn around and go two blocks south under the via duct The Rock Island passenger train which arrives from the south at a m holds up this First street crossing every day The lapse of time depending upon the amount of loading and unloading to be done generally 10 to 15 minutes This condition could be avoided by the train pulling further up and thus clearing the crossing A few years ago for the benefit of the railroad the city vacated several streets north of First street because of this blocking Third street north west It is necessary when First street crossing is blocked by the train that residents on Third street northwest in order to reach the Hanford hotel must go eight blocks out of the way This condition Is getting more exasperating and un feeling that the whole charge was unfair and ridiculous a fine was assessed And a new speed trap has been brot into the open rise to disagree with the GlobeGazettes Mr Haskin In his contention that the corduroy effect on gravel roacjs is explained In this way It Is caused by cars hitting a atone or hard place in the road ano starting the vibration ofa spring This causes harmonic hammering oi the machine which in turn form the cross the road That may be acontributing cause but the most important cause is the road grader either imperfect in it self or badly managed by the crew in charge Havent you followed along after these machines and watched the big blade bounding along like a jackrabbit Mr Has kins description of the vibration of a spring and the harmonic applies to the roaci grader with a good deal more force than it does to the automobile in my humble opinion like the position taken by T Pipe in his communication on another column on this page He concedes that errors have been made in the past in solicita tion and methods but he holds that the community chest is the best way to support our welfare and charitable agencies The campaign Is at hand Its everybodys busi ness Remember these two points You are going to be approached only once and the pledge that you make can be spread over an entire yearIts almost a rule without ex ception that the man who can reach down in his pockets and make his payment In one installment is giv ing just a fourth of what he could give without bother Ask yourself How much would I give in all if the seven agencies participating in the community chest were to come around to me individually Your pledge could be that and you would still be ahead of the game for you wont have to waste your time re ceivingthe six additional solicitors As neighbor to neighbor what do you say we get back of this com munity chest project this year and put it over with such emphasis that pie are some day going to demand r viaduct on First street northwest as well as on Firststreet southwest and this is really what should be done would be a bit uncomfort able if I were the woman who slipped into a profes sional mans reception room one day not long ago and sneaked away with contained in a snakeskta purse She left the purse My dis comfort would arise from the fact that her face is known to the pro fessional man Some day he and she are going to meet on the street and an extremely embarassingsubject will be brot up Incidentally women patients may If they wish profit on the experience of this one patient who is out her 1250 temporarily at least an3 possibly permanently I am told that four out of five women leave their unattached belongings such an purse or gloves in the reception room while in the doctors or den tists office It has proved costly to several grabbed this extremely well based bit of counsel out or a North Iowa weekly news paper on the GlobeGazettes ex change table Dont ask the editor to leave It out of the paper if something un pleasant happens Better give him full particulars yourself and ask to print them in the first edition Such a procedure brings any matter to a head at once It creates a buzz for a day or two and then is forgotten But if it is kept out of the papers it festers like an old sore is whis pered hack and

Stories By SIAIIV GKAHAM BONNEK WHAT THEY DECIDED THE leader cricket now got up and spoke again He i had received all the votes from the other crickets Every single cricket ho said has used a piece of grass in voting So we have all decided the same way We have just formed the great Cricket club and we havehat to make rules The first of our rules which we have just been voting on is that we should not have a lot of useless words to use when we talk We wondered whether it would be a good Idea to lave a lot of different things to say or if we should say the same thing over and over again VVe have decided that haying nice cheery voices we might just as well say the same thing over and over again It saves bother It keeps us from having to study too much It gives us time to sing and chatter without learn ng a lot of words Those who used the piece of grass in voting de cided this way No one used a piece of weed in voting which would have meant votes for more words to use From now on fellow crickets we will always riake the same speeches the same sounds same ittle songs We are small It is not to be expected of us that we should have a great many words Large creatures like people can use a lot of words but little creatures such as we are need not All the crickets waved their feelers which was their way of clapping Youve been present the little black clock ex plained at meeting when the crickets de cided they would not change their song or chatter So when you hear them say the same thing over and over again youll know that it was according to the vote of every cricket But weve got big plans ahead We must make Diet and Health By Lulu Hunt M D Address Inquiries to Or Peters cjre GlobeGizettt and stamped selfaddressed envelope Sign your evidence of good fjitt Send 10

idea of the lines Im sure it will simplify downtown traffic remember when almost ev ery movie plot had a sugary romance Since the advent of the talkie the favorite material has been either murder mystery or a plot revolving about the backstage of a musical show Why I dont know Possibly because the limita tions of the talkie up to the present stage of its development makes the material
