in all Mason City elementary and junior high schools for the first time this year By JAMES ROWENS Think urged the teacher We have to think so we can discover The brainwork was being urged on a group of youngsters most of whom were about 7 years old The place was a classroom in McKinley School with Mrs R W Cinder in charge The sub ject was mathematics taught by what is called the new JAMES R OWENS
