AND NEW OFFER Additional Two Feet for PostofKce Window Make Loophole WaahlnKtbn Bureau sched uled for Mason Citys postoffice parcel post counter are causing the treasury department to do some letter writing and may cause a lot more On Dec 30 five bids were receiv ed by the department and when they were opened the 51032 offer of Smythe and company of Wash ington was disclosed as the lowest closely followed by M M Moen company of Mason City which wanted just more or Low Bid Accepted The treasury department is legal ly bound to accept the lowest re sponsible bid without considera tion of whether or not the success ful bidder is a local concern Smythe and company is a responsible firm so acceptance seemed a sure thing However the Moen company wrote to the treasury stating that tha changed counter should be two feet longer than the specifications stated and that it was perfectly willing to add the two feet without adding to its bid Now the treasury department has written to the custodian of the Ma son City postoffice asking whether or not he considers the additional two feet necessary To Be Consulted If he says yes the treasury will ask the low bidding Smythe and company if it will imitate the Moen companys generosity and add the two feet without adding anything to its bid If it wont the treasury will have to reject all five bids prepare new specifications including the two ex tra feet and set a new opening date for amended bids On the other hand if Smythe and company will be nice it will get the contract two feet or no two feet There doesnt seem to be much chance for the Mason City com pany except possibly on amended bids Boys in Booster Club Hear Heneman Speak Sixty boys attended a Booster club meeting in the Y M C A F C Heneman gave a talk on Dr Wilfred
