Emergency cases also are admitted immediately, whether service connected or not, he told :he monthly meeting of Clausen- Worden post. Non-service connected cases which are not, emergencies now have'a time lag of 14 to 21 days, Cooksie said, and the veteran must state under oath that is not able to pay.

The hospital, designed for 300 patients before the war, now has 501. Treatment Complete The Des Moines hospital handles all types of surgical and medical cases, the VA officer said, and local patients have reported good and complete treatment. A veteran with 1 day of duty during the war and a discharge other than dishonorable is eligible, Cooksie assured the Legionnaires. The attending physician should make the application for emergency cases when possible, he advised, and should request transportation if it- is needed. Other cases should apply at the VA office if possible. There were 97 VA hospitals in 1945, Cooksie said. Now there are 130 with 29 more authorized. The Iowa City VA hospital is scheduled for completion in 1951 and will help relieve the crowded conditions in the Des Moines hospital.

Klempnauer urged the necessity of attendance by the whole club at the Nebraska-Iowa Kiwanis district convention to be held at Waterloo, Oct. 16-18, to support the Marty candidacy. Well Qualified "Marty's years of experience in Kiwanis more than qualify him for district governor," Klempnauer emphasized. "If fewer than 40 members go it will be a catasr trophe," he added, and asked that the club as a whole go in addition to the delegates.

Kelsh estate against the Ideal Sand and Gravel company was refused by a district court jury late Thursday afternoon. The jury brought in a verdict for the defense, holding that Kelsh's excessive speed was partly the cause of the collision between his car and a gravel truck which resulted in his death. The estate had claimed that Kelsh had the right of way. people themselves," Doctor Brown said. He thought it would take at least another generation under watchful guidance. "Even in our own country democracy is never complete," he said. One of the tangible things that established faith in the U. S. was the airlift, coming when the Germans in Berlin feared the Americans would leave. They could understand that. The Germans have hated the Slavs for years and there isn't the slightest chance of the German people going communistic. They are frightened at the thought of a war between the eastern and western powers. If the German people again become a power in Europe it will be under a nationalistic movement, Brown thought. He explained how at first nazism showed none of the terrible negative phases it developed into but paradoxically enough began as an application of practical Christianity to the sociaJ order. Doctor Brown was presented by C. E. Cornwell, program chairman, who also introduced I. E. Metcalf, director of the lowa-Tri Cities area of the conference Doctor Brown represents. Ernest R. Solom of the Jackson, Minn., club was a visitor. Another out-of-town visitor was Cecil Kirschman of Fair Oaks, Cal., former Mason Cityan, whose father.
