will be provided in the basement The decision to move is based on overcrowding of the present building to such an ex tent that efficient operation is becoming impossible The deci sion followed several years of exploratory planning At first it was thought possible to re main in the present location and the building immediately west of the GlobeGazette was ac quired for additional space IT EVENTUALLY was de cided that a onefloor operation would be more efficient and the site on Washington JNW was then acquired The site includes the former Patterson Funeral Home and the house adjoining which was occupied by Maude M Patterson from whom the two properties were purchased Also included is the house at the south end of the site It formerly was owned and occu pied by the Pietersen Dental Laboratories All three buildings are to be cleared from the site Work already has been begun by the Butterfield Tree Surgeon and Demolition team The Patterson Funeral Home which workmen already are dis mantling was built originally as a home by the late James E BIythe Mason City attorney A major factor in the deci sion to move was the necessity of providing modern printing equipment The GlobeGazette management has decided to pur chase a new press which will permit the use of more and aetter color than now is possi ble The press now in use was installed in 1930 THE NEW building is being planned to permit a much more efficient work flow than now is possible Maintaining of the fast delivery schedules required by newspapers today is difficult and costly in the present crowd ed
