Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - May 26, 1928, Mason City, Iowa a rtf WAS DAILY NEWSPAPER FORTHf AND MASON CITY FINAL EDITION VOL XXXV UNITED PRESS AND INTERNATIONAL NEWS SUPPLEMENTAL SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY OPENING INSTALLMENT FIVE CENTS PER COPYASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE REPORT NO 198f RESTLESS IDVE I i fty Samuel Afewdin RELEASED BY CENTRAL PRESS ASSOCIATION I a CHAPTER 1 Can a girl succeed In the big city paying the price Can a girl win success in business without sacri ficing her soul la the modern working girl as moral and true os the girl in the home Certainly tlto answers to these questions are in teresting enough to people of this modernistic age And the answers may be found In this story the restless love ot two of the city and one of the village But it is chiefly of the sister who had drifted to the big city To understand her story and Hie story of the sister who had been kept at home you must first get a picture of the village and certain of Us men and the forces at work that tivngle lives and complicate love that bring swift tragedy and finally happiness The village ot Ackland Center nest ling beneath its protecting garment ot elms breathes even yet of the past Of a day when Massachusetts was frontier land when men could shoot a musket and swing a broadax and wo worked with their hands and boro children and worshipped a retributive God A few of the seventeenthcentury dwellings blackened by weather stil stand close to the old turnpike There are many wellkept white homes of STELLA f the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries somo with brick ends others with fan lights and carved door posts each housing its wealth of heirlooms finely worked mahogany and maple and walnut of the early days luster and copper Stuarts and Cop leys and Peales pictured wall paper The lawns are clear hedges and Elirubs neatly trimmed the elms cared for like the helpless There has always been thrift and modest wealth In Ackland and there has al ways been taste Ackland knows Its past and takes wholesome pride in it From trc Green in front of the town hall hus bands and sons inarched off in home spun to fight King Phillips painted savages From behind the stone walls that still line the country roads the defendants of those frontiersman tioU pot shots at tho hired Hessians of Gcorgro in Washington maneuvered hereabouts LaFnyctte was feted here Openly by day years later John Bots ford preached abolition and by night Fiiuisglcd fugitive blacks thru Canada Philosophers and poets have found the village a congenial home OC the many pronounced characters which the old place has brlstkd to be frowned over and chuckled over In the guarded Yankee way perhaps the last was Alexander Hamilton Pew A bony tall man with gray hair brushing out over a stiff collar A man of vigor of sententious wit of unspotted integrity hs made the weekly Ackland Age a paper to be quoted from the Atlantic to the Pa cific and this In a day when Horace Greeley Springfield Repub lican and the Burlington Hawlieyo and the Detroit Free Press held the humorous field when Bill Nye and Bret Harte and Quad and Marie Twain and Ell Perkins were namas Indeed He went to congress old Ham Pew and was felt there Ackland during the period of the present story was still awnre of the Ago and Its history nnd felt a neigh borly respect for the sons YOUKS Ham and Homer who had inheritoiS the paper It seemed natural for the Pew boys to he carrying on Most of the old families were still nllve In the town Botsfords nnd TInkhams Bngots nnd Elys and Godwins and and Brndflcltla The names over the store front nround the Green told the story There just ns theyd til ways been unaware youd think of the newly polyglot bewlldcrinprly alien America of the nlneteentwentics youd find the old English Foxes and Lakes and Denns and Edcns and Poores and Swans But however unaware of the new forces old Ackland might have bivn during their beginnings that Gargan tuan new Amrrloa hnd reached and changed the town The age of hrrl taste bnric In the oiKhteeneightlPs and nineties touched it first A few AMUNDSEN TO SEARCH FOR ITALIA d brick structures stood out like sore thumbs among the gableroofed chimneypotted old buildings the Green The rebuilding of Breckenrldges drug store a little later had been un fortunate The new fire station hail a strident air And tho the factory and tenement blight had luckily skipped the Center to alight at Ark land Corners two ot three miles away where there was a railway Junction nothing could have kept out the auto mobiles They swarmed in with the new century like a plague of beetles bringing after them macadembert roads and citified traffic policemen and filling stations and hot dog stands and rum runners and the nev young sort of narcoticfed criminals and all the mixed benefits and the ugly Utter of what Is commonly termed Progress The nerves of anxious parents were stirred by night parking along coun try lanes and by whispers of a spread ing demoralization among the young people of high school age The motion pictures got in over a spirited opposi tion bringing a dubious gospel of sen sationalism a new sort of talk about sex appeal and a debauchery of soter taste that couldnt be headed off radio followed with its disarming mir aculous air thrusting jazz and the twanging jargon of a cheaply restioss age within the four walls of nearly every home in town Old Ackland staggered but carried on as well as it could There appeared to be compensations The swarming motorists spent money in town Brcck ehridges new soda fountain was twlca is big as the old one Jim Swan bought the Beadon property next door to the bakery and built an addition with a white lunchroom on the Real property values were looking up Old Joe Harmer who wore a full beard and smoked fifteencent clears and ran the coal and feed business down by the tracks and owned consid erable land and was head selectman didnt appear to be worried In liis quietly substantial way he talked prosperity and the grocers and butch ers and druggists and hardware men listened And so ewiftly a town thst Senate Fails to Override Coolidge iVeto spotiflimsy and ugly In the general bewilderment only the Age stood firm For the flavor and tone of old Ackland Young Hum Pew rising to the situation with a good deal of the old mans courage and wit fought the new disorders motion pictures hot dog shacks tour ist camps commercial dance fought them all and lost When by way of a sort of climax a pair of swarthy aliens from nowhere applied for a permit to open a pre tentious rondhouse actually within the town not two miles from the Cenln the historic editorial column of the Age fairly thundered There were public hearings in the town hall pri vate arguments in Breckenridges ami In Sam Buttons barber shop much anxious comment In the seclusion of pleasantly dignified homes In the course of time the selection gave those aliens a victuallers licence and acolonial mansion was rebuilt with glassedin porches in a pirc grove conveniently aside from the stato road The place was opened Li quor flowed of course Girls ot the town wero lured there Motorists from Boston from Worcester from GoJ knew where foregathered Fights oc curred Nearly every Monday brot re ports ot drunken road accidents Young Ham refused their advertis ing and hammered relentlessly on Every week he hit out But the swarthy ones shrewdly bought their provisions at the Center They made friends This and that citizen began to be heard of as a frequenter of tlie place This roadhouse has much to do with the story Young Ham seemed when you met him a modern enough product Hed been to college He came back from France a captain of artillery had contacts enough knew tho worn pretty well indeed He wasnt a talk er kept his own counsel The town discussed him uncertainly strange new postwar world was KO strong Most of them were one way or another caught up in It At bot tom tlrey werea practical folk The Independent human individual these days had a rather mean row to hoc Among the puzzling forces that combined in that immense line of force called the United States the dominant note was organization Like old Ham young Ham Pew editor stood alone On his own two legs There was something appeallngly quixotic in tho picture An ioned personal survival of character and
