Iowa Fair A new and larger fairgrounds has been acquired Architects drawings have been pre pared of buildings race track and grandstand as envisioned by the failmanagement Should these buildings be erected as planned the North Iowa Fair would become the envy of the state The North Iowa Fair would at once be lifted into a new and higher category of expositions But this larger fair isnt going to come by itself It means tremendous effort will have to be exercised by the people of this community That is why this is a year of decision If we dont go forward this year we go back ward Theres no such thing as standing still Whether the North Iowa Fair moves into the new and more desirable headquarters will be pretty well decided in the next 10 days Mason Citys classification as a progressive and forwardlooking city is at stake in that de cision too North Iowa Fair has had similar years i of decision in the past It measured up to the needs then and can be expected to do so now It was 93 years ago that the first fair was held in Mason City It was a meager primitive consisting chiefly of exhibits of livestock AN EDITORIAL grain and produce from the surroundingcoun tryside In 1873 came a year of decision The pioneers dug down into their pockets and raised money for bleachers race track and an exhibit build ing on 12th NW When this setup was outmoded in 1S07 the decision was made to purchase the present site chiefly because it was accessible to streetcar transportation Now the time has come for another expan sion move if our fair is to measure up to its ex panded mission in a new era BUT this expansion will mean the outlay of a substantial sum of money And there must be a demonstration that a larger plant is needed from the attendance standpoint Manager M C Lawson and the executive committee have provided the kind of program that should draw attendance Its the kind of a program of entertainment that would grace the larger fairgrounds they are envisioning They are offering the kind of money in prizes to exhibitors that should have the facilities of larger fairgrounds A record purse of will go to the winners More and more the North Iowa Fair is reach ing out to surrounding counties for in a manner of speaking it is also their fair This year boys and girls from 13 counties will vie for prize mon ey Bands from a number of North Iowa com munities will have a part A FULLHEARTED support at the gates of the North Iowa Fair in the week ahead is the obligation most immediately before us But it isnt the whole story it isnt the full extent of our obligation The base of ownership in the North Iowa Fair Association must be widened so that thou sands not mere hundreds can say I HAVE A SHARE IN THE NORTH IOWA FAIR These membership certificates pay no divi dends and cannot be converted But the certifi cate in a new and greater Fair will be as a badge of honor in the community In the past year 85 additional memberships at each have been purchased mostly by farmers raising the total to 220 OUBSCRTBING for these memberships cant O wait this is the year of decision The greater North Iowa Fair has already started to unfold in a finer show that will be presented before the grandstand and in the prizes offered exhibitors It is up to us who are the rank and file citi zens of this community to join in doing our share Remember IS THE YEAR OF DE CISION
