, A. A. Banquet! Planned for - Sunday at 1 The Mason City group of Alcoholics Anonymous is planning its 2nd annual banquet Sunday at »1 p. m. at the Hotel Hanford, to better acquaint the public with the problem of the alcoholic, and the public is invited. Tickets can be procured in the lobby of the hotel before the banquet or can be purchased in advance by writing to Alcoholics -J Anonymous, Mason City, Iowa. Alcoholics Anonymous is an organization which attempts to deal only with those who have become "alcoholics" — excessive drinkers whose drinking has become an obsession—who cannot leave liquor alone. No Moderate Drinking For such persons there is no such thing as drinking moderately. The A. A. program is designed solely to enable such persons to achieve complete and permanent sobriety, according to A. A. members. Members of A. A. are not reformers or crusaders, and are not trying to "sell" their program to unwilling prospects. They merely show to an alcoholic an understanding of his problem, explain what they have to offer, and extend a helping hand to those who want it. T'hey do not profess to be doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists or social workers. The program Is simply a plan for living, which, if followed, produces well-adjusted and useful life in which alcohol is no longer necessary for escape or pleasure. Of Voluntary Nature All A. A. activities are strictly and wholly voluntary and nonprofessional. There are no paid executives and the members carry on the program as an avocation. The local banquet is sponsored by the Alano club, the social part of the organization.'A prominent Iowa attorney will act as master oE ceremonies. A doctor and a newspaper editor also will be on the program. Swaledale —Mrs. Alvina Powers of Burt is visiting at the home of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Axel Andersen, and daughters.
