problems the marathon walkathon street graveling and work for the unemployed engaged the attention of the city council at Its regular October meeting at the city hall Monday attended by all five councilman City Manager B H Crofoot and City Solicitor Lester Dibble The traffic situation In all its complexities was gone over in a lengthy discussion which started when Mr Crofoot displayed designs of a new type of atop and go signs that he proposed be substi tuted for the ones used in the past The proposed signs were designed for placing at the four sidewalk corners of each Intersection thus being out of the way for traffic J J Burns however recalled that the overhead signs of Cleveland where he spent several weeks last summer were highly satisfactory and maintained that was the type that shouTd be adopted in Mason City He enlarged on the conten tion that the situation now without stop and go signs on the busiest corners was not safe and predicted litigation unless something was done Have New Type They have more or less done away with the overhead signs be cause the modern automobiles are so low It is difficult for the driver to see them commented Mr Cro foot who explained that he had been at work for weeks endeavoring to get prices andother data from companies making1 traffic signs It is an important matter and we should instruct the manager to proceed with some sort of a solu tion said Mayor J T Laird Mr Crofoot explained that Duluth Mlnnhad just abandoned the type of sign Mason City now has and that the entire lot can be pur chased for repair on the local signs for We dont want them said Mr Burns Other councilmen were dis posed to view the mater in the same light realizing the continual de struction of the signs the past months made them highly unsatis factory H M Knudson moved that the city manager be authorized to obtain prices on both the overhead and post signs To paint Stop As a temporary solution of the matter Mayor Laird proposed paint ing the word stop in large let ters at all four approaches to the intersection of State street and Fed eral avenue a proposal which was formally passed by the council on the motion of David Olson and sec onded by W J Pagenhart Mayor Laird suggested the chief of police be instructed to proceed with stricter enforcement of all traffic laws particularly In the mat ter of speeding Mr Burns expressed his support of this action It was the contention of the city solicitor the council should enforce all stop signs along the arterial highways or take out the signs He suggested that a fine be used to procure enforcement of the rule You have to go down into their pockets to get them to live up to an ordinance said Mr Burns Talks on Parking The mayor then veered the con versation to the matter of parking suggesting that curbs be eliminated around the Central school grounds and possibly Central park to give more downtown parking space I think this is one of the moat serious problems we have he said Couldnt the council rent a va cant lot for the parking of automo biles asked Mr Pagenhart The problem of handling double parking in the congested business sections of the city also was dis cussed I dont think we should be too hard on double parkers said Mr Olson who favored a rule under which automobiles could be parked at an angle thus permitting twice the number of cars in a given space It was generally agreed among the council members how ever that the streetcar system stood in the way of handling this Might Remove Streetcars Mayor Laird raised the question as to whether the streetcar com pany wag maintaining the service only because it was required to do so under a franchise adding that if such was the case the city should be willing to release it in order to clear the streets for more efficient HEADS MINISTERS The Rev William Galbreth of the Olivet M E chnrch was elected president of the Minis terial association to fill the un explred term left by the resig nation of the Rev G

The atmosphere of the harvest was particularly carried out at the Central Lutheran church which staged its annual harvest home fes tival with the church auditorium beautifully decorated in the colors of the season and the fruit of the harvest Speaks on Bounty Using as his theme Because ot Thy Great Bounty The Rev Wal ter H Kampen pointed out that the bountiful harvest which lies at our feet Is the produce of a land not cursed but a land blessed an earth not reluctant to serve and produce but an earth good and glad so to stances of persons living on charity attending the walkathon Doctor Spence called it a bad place for young people to go said Mayor Laird who stated that the early objections from the neighbor hood of the armory seeme to have died down They promised me a week ago that it was merely a matter of hours before It would close the mayor added I think they will keej on as long as the money keeps coming in commented Mr Olson It was Mr Pagenhart who suggested that a committee be sent to Investigate Mr Knudson refused to go to the armory but said he would act on a committee to interview the officers of the 40 and 8 Change Wanted An application for a change of classification of a property two blocks west of the railroad tracks on Tenth street northwest was pre sented by Atty D H Fitzpatrick On the motion by Mr Knudson and seconded by Mr Pagenhart the soli citors

minutes attempt ing to carry on a disputation with the city manager on the matter Mr Crofoot stated the complaint was on file and would be attended to Fi nally Mr Knudson insisted that his motion referring the matter to the city manager be taken up bringing the discussion to a conclusion Further consideration of the do Further he added Despite the drought of summer the hall and storm which did destroy and retard behold how quietly and beautifully nature has proceeded unto her har vest Damage and injury have been repaired slowly but surely natures course has continued patiently unto the new final rest Barns are filled food has been selected and stocked up by every householder if people suffer it is not because the harvest has not been great What It Teaches The harvest teachea us to live gladly unselfishly bravely and gratefully Mr Kampen pointed out The lessons are easily read simply translated and surely adapt able The four seasons of the year are full of meaning and wisdom to one who regards the stages of his own life Finally was stated as we know these lessons from nature our sincere desire should be to apply these unto our lives that because of the great bounty of God ours as well might be a life of unselfish ness and gratitude and aa we be hold a years glad dying because it has yielded and given gladly un selfishly bravely and gratefully ao may we live and enter into

have the newspaper announce that we are tightening up on the enforcement of traffic regulations he said It should be in big letters sug gested Mr Burns The general view held by the council of the marathonwalkathon was that while it served a good purpose in raising funds for the 4C and 8 milk fund that It was unde sirable as an Institution in the city My sympathies are with the V and 8 boys In what they are trying to do hut otherwise I think there is no justification for an outside concern to come in and take ouf large funds said Mr Knudson who with Mr Olson was appointee1 by Mayor Laird to interview the Legionnaires In an effort to bring the walkie to a close as soon as possible Denied Permit They were denied a permit here aaid the city manager The next thing I knew after that was when

Pagenhart the matter was left in the hands of the city manager Bequest Exemption On the motion of Mr Olson and second by Mr Knudson a resolution was drawn up making formal re quest for exemption of certain funds from the BeattyBennett bill Mr Crofoot suggested that rock crushing operations be utilized for the employment of men who are without work The suggestion was regarded as an excellent one by council members and the manager instructed to take the matter up with local agencies The petition of J F Quinn for damages growing out of the flood ing of his basement during pave ment operations four years ago was left in tha hands of the solicitor for further consideration Except for a minor flareup at the opening the session was without any sensational aspects carrying out the statement recently made by one of the councilmen that the lion and the lamb have lain down together Some differences of opinion broke out at the opening when Mayor Laird suggested that evening meet ings might be better Left Where It Was I for one will not be here if we have an evening meeting said Mr Knudson I dont want to be fiddl ing around until midnight I hope you dont mean that we are only fiddling

shall perish Thou shall seek them and Shalt no find them even them that contended with thee they that war against thee shall be as nothing and as a thing of nought For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand saying unto thee Fear not I will help thee Isaiah Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook was the following Evil is a negation be cause It is the absence of truth It is
