Cent Stamps Proposed to Bring Redemption Mason City may have scrip money of its ownin circulation by the time spring opens so that road work can be done successfully The Chamber Commerce acting upon a sug gestion to its board of directors from Col Hanford MacNlder has appointed a committee to consider the matter This committee E H Wagner chairman has already re solved itself into subcommittees to study various phases of the situa tion The general plan as presented to the Chamber directors by Colonel MacNider would call for the under taking of some piece of public work such as a road which might be a part of the city park boule vard system the use of the great est amount of hand labor possible and the employment on the project of ablebodied unemployed now re ceiving aid from welfare

in dol lar denominations only would con tain possibly 52 dated squares on the back and each one through whose hands it passes will be re quired to put on a twocent stamp Within the year at least the scrip would thus be redeemed witfour cents over on each dollar to pay cost of issuing same The success of the undertaking would depend largely on the general acceptance of it by the business in terests of the city A number of the larger concerns have already as sured the committee of their sup port and as soon as details are per fected by the committee the entire plan will be presented to the busi ness community Of course the plan is frankly inflation of currency confined to our own locality But if we can put to useful work men now receiving aid and givingthe public nothing In return if we can turn over to our selves as citizens and taxpayers some useful public project without coat to city or county if we can stimulate business by the addition of several thousand dollars in rap idly circulating currency and can do these things with each individu al contributing say two cents as n dollar passes through his hands we believe it will be worth the effort Are Making Study At any
