possible for Mason City to have two of the biggest cele bration days in her history on June 6 and 7 ExPresident William How ardTaft the governor the State and other distinguished speakers and personages are to be present as head linersfor the formal dedication cer emonies of the eight story quarter of a million dollar home aud there will be thousands of the members of the orrler here to attend the two days ion It is a goldea opportu nity for Mason City business men and Mason City institutions to show visitors some of the things which akeMason City ao much talked Jabdiftandatthe same time furnish a rare entertainment for the visitors There are three things which Ma son City can do especially to make this celebration a great success and turn it to a publicity account which willmean much to the impetus of the progressive spirit now manifest and bring additional dollars to the coffers of every merchant and every business man The first is to help the Chamber of Commerce committee pull off the biggest parade ever seen in the city Every business man and every so ciety in the city should be represent ed in that parade The manufactur ing concerns shouldhave floats as should the individual business con cerns representing their places of business and as far as possible their employes should be allowed to march in line back of these floats and thus cultivate a spirit of cooperation which is becoming the vital principle of the city through the good offices of the Chamber of Commerce All the fraternal organizations should make it a point to mass their mem bers in the parade so as to show the appreciation of the orders to tho one single fraternal order which has its headquarters in the city The pride of the city ia our schools The schools should be in procession with banners similar to the one of a cou ple of years ago which was such a wonderful revelation to the people of the city The Civic league and the allied clubs should be represented in bodies either on foot or in decorated automobiles and the various unions of the city ought to exert every effort to give a larger demonstration even than on labor day With more than twenty thousand eyes on the parade of visitors com ing from all over the state and es pecially from the buying territory contiguous the reason why every business should be represented anti in the most unique and attractive shape possible is apparent Another thing Mason City should do is to help furnish a big class for the initiation ceremony which will be put on in the lodge room This organization is now on a sure basla of adequate rates and furnishes a number of plans for insurance and every person in Mason City who is taking or contemplating taking life insurance should give the local con cern some of their patronage The amount may be small or large the thing to be considered is the demon stration to this order of their appre ciation oE making Mason City the headquarters by becoming members A big class is the last thing that Ma son City can do to show this appre ciation and will please thesupreme body more than demonstration and felicitous phrases The third thing is to render alj as sistance possible to the various com mittees to make their assignments a big success to open private homes for lodging tor the overflow as on previous occasions to cooperate in the various plans and finally to give the glad hand to all the visitors to the city on these two days There is to be no fourth of July celebration here this year and this will be Ma son Citys one big opportunity to invite her neighbors to spend a day or two here and enjoy the great pro gram of oratory and divertisements which will be offered One hundred and eighty thousand persons have volunteered to go with Col Teddy to France and fight That
