Get RHUAID Ford Hopkins also Sold by All Drug Stores here in Mason City One Mans Opinion CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 of making books available to all on the conntyivide level has been demonstrated enough times in our own state and other states to lift that approach clear out of the ex perimental category Its a proved success The secret of that success stems from the old maxim In union there is strength By working to gether the communities of any county can at nominal cost pro vide a better library service for all than any one of the communi ties could possibly afford if work ing along THE plain fact is that altogeth er too many of the 313 socalled existent libraries are existing on a handtomouth basis Smaller communities simply cannot afford a complete library service unless ay some stroke of good fortune hey are the beneficiaries of a sizable bequest Heres how it is working out Of the 313 Iowa libraries 109 are n towns of less than 1000 popu ailon Only 15 of those 109 have as much as J500 to cover all ex books renting hiring librarians etc But worse still is the fact that only 34 of these 109 small town ibraries are open as much as 10 lours a week That isnt true ibrary service LY 129 of Iowas 313 II ibraries receive as much as 11000 a year for all expenses inly 39 receive as much as In short 184 of our 313 libraries are operating below minimum tandards Theyre better than nothing of not nearly as good as they should be not as good asllowans need or leserve And to talk of extending their already too meager service beyond he territory which they already serve is to deal in nonsense It s only being geared into a coun ywide setup that they can be rescued from their impotence A county library can be defined as a cooperative plan under which the overall setup by itself or in cooperation with existing ibraries extends book service to everybody in the county It means iooks and reading for alL One most important aspect of he program is the socalled BOOKMOBILE which literally s a library on wheels It visits rural schools and community cen ere on a regular schedule pre enting teachers and pupils with rom 500 to 1000 books from which they may choose Provision is also made by which patrons may receive their books y mail in any part of the county Somebody has aptly observed that The central idea of the county ibrary is simply to take books out where the people live My own county happened to be me selected by the federal gov ernment to test out the practic ability of the BOOKMOBILE plan and Ive seen it at close range Sxperience here has demonstrated leyond argument that the plan feasible and not overexpensive proposed amendment to the Jpresent library act as Ive pointed out is permissive not mandatory One or its chief vir ues it seems to me is that it is lexible enough to meet almost any situation The county library would be established by the county board he makeup and powers of which are clearly set forth From this point on the procedure can be ully dictated by the peculiar needs of the county it serves The board may either contract with an established public library tor service as provided for in he present library law or it can set up its own library even to erecting a building for that pur pose NOT the least of its virtues would be in the help it could provide to small libraries by mak ing available books from its siz able stock These exchange books would come to the small library catalogued and processed ready to circulate thus relieving the lift librarian of much routine work But the big idea of the county library plan is to bring books to that 44 per cent of our people who are now wholly lacking in library service Its to that end that the board in charge would direct its major efforts BY giving legislative approval to the pending proposal Iowa would only be falling in line with a nationwide trend that amounts almost to a tide This is reflected in the fact that whereas 10 years ago the idea was barely in its infant stage the number of county and regional libraries ia the United States to day is approaching the 1000 mark which Iowa has only 4 In the middle west Ohio leads with 73 county libraries Indiana has 23 Michigan has 22 with 15 each in Minnesota and Wisconsin In many another field Iowa is not only abreast but ahead of hese neighbors It doesnt speak oo well of our progressive vision o lag longer in this important ield of library service for all our people N the remainder of my time Id like to tell you what hap pened in one Iowa community vhen a library came to town For his concluding part of my story m dipping into a confidential etter received from the woman vhose high sense of community oyalty has made the project click I quote For years I tried to talk people nto having a library I had taken ibrary work and told them I would not ask for a salary if they would only have a library No one ever reads here I was re peatedly told Well the miracle happened and we finally got the small beginning if a library FOR the last 2 years we have had the highest circulation in owa in towns under 1000 Last jummer we had an Indian pow wow The children really tore into t They read mornings along with heir play and afternoons were pent in the pool There was not me case in the mayors court of a child getting into a mischief This s a record Teachers in our schools come n for books every other Saturday They hare learned that with sev ral grades to handle discipline s greatly improved when the ihildren have books with which o occupy them in what would jtherwise be idle moments Another fact of importance is that our little library in making available the best books to our school children has been equip ing them to give a good account of themselves when they go away o college Without this supple ment to their course of study hey would be more than a little FALSE TEETH That Loosen Need Not Embarrass Many wearers of false teeth bave tered real embarrassment because

cities who have been exposed to the best of library service npHE moral of this story is that what HAS happened to one Iowa town COULD happen to every Iowa town The formula is as plain as the nose on your face All things considered it would seem difficult for anybody who wants Iowa to keep its top rank among the states in things cul tural and educational to oppose this proposed amendment to the library law It presents a plan of demon strated effectiveness and work ability to let the 1128759 lowans now without library service to have it if it is the will of the ma jority If it has effect of raising the tax levy by a small amount it will be because those who are to be the beneficiaries of the county library plan have thought the matter through and decided that they are willing to pay the extra amount for a service long over due 400 Hunters Fail to Track Down Panther Parkvllle Mo panther bunt in which more than 400 men participated failed to disclose any trace of an elusive animal be
