v Tour Europe, See Marshall Plan Working Clear Lake — Interest in the Marshall plan, how it is working and what the people of Europe thmk of it was the moving factor in the pilgrimage of 30 American women to Europe last March and April, Mrs. Helen Mitchell, Council Bluffs, one of the 30, told members of the Civic League at City hall Tuesday afternoon. The party left from Omaha and flew via Chicago, New York and Newfoundland, to London and, in a few days, to Paris, where they were the target of photographers, movie camera men and newsmen, all seeking to give them publicity. After seeing the Louvre, Eiffel tower, the Arch of Triumph, Notre Dame cathedral and many other ^sights, including a musical revue for which the actors had new costumes, the first since before the war, in Paris, the party moved on down to Versailles and spent a day at the famed Versailles palace with its 1,762 rooms, saw the table where the Treaty of Versailles was signed, saw Rigoletto in a huge old theater and visited *~ the embassy office. Here the Marshall- plan and economic co-operation were explained. They received much information from government agencies and learned that "The Voice ^ of America" is not heard to any great extent by the common people since they have no radios capable of picking it up. Visit France In France and other countries they visited rural areas and learned how the farmers live, their v problems and viewpoints, what they eat and what they sell, farming methods and many other things such as the purchase of machinery through the Marshall plan and how this helps their countries. They experienced the unheated buildings, the lack of fuel and rationing and learned how tired the people are of fish and other unrationed foods, how s dependent the countries are upon tourfst trade and how much they need American dollars. They took gifts, CARE packages and other things to the homes visited. At the same time they were being entertained at embassies . and seeing many,beautiful sights, 3 cathedrals, statues, the Mediterranean and the cities of Italy. * They saw a school attended by 2,000 children for 2 hours a day each, saw how displaced persons RELIEF AT LAST For Your COUGH Creomulsion relieves promptly because it goes right to the seat of the trouble to help loosen and expel germ laden phlegm and aid nature to soothe and heal raw, tender, inflamed bronchial mucous membranes.Tell your druggist to sell you a bottle of Creomulsion •with the understanding you must like the way it quickly allays the cough or you are to have your money back. CREOMULSION for Coughs,ChestColds,Bronchitis are cared for, saw factories under communistic control t had an audience with the Pope in the Vatican and bought articles of Angora wool. . ' In Germany they visited Nurenberg and Munich, saw refugee camps, went through the trial courts and visited the farms. Some still believe in Hitler and say he and his government gave them so much. In every country the people are afraid of Russia. They say if the American occupation forces should move out of Germany in the morning Russia would be in before noon, and stay. Women Franchised Belgium seemed better off than the other countries as they have a more stable government. There women received full franchise this summer. Back to England they visited English farm homes, met Lady Astor at a tea and learned that many of the grand estates have been turned over to the government since the owners could not pay the taxes. They then rent the places to live in. In one instance the rent was $32,000 a year. In England 60 per cent of every dollar goes for taxes and the people are in bad straits. Socialized medicine is liked by the English but is costing 8 times what was estimated. Railroads are operated at a huge deficit. They speak of the United States as having a capitalistic form of government but in England they have nothing as good as we have she said. Mrs. Mitchell thinks the United States is keeping the world together. The party visited Ireland and took off from Shannon at 5 a. m. one morning and arrived in Omaha at 12:30 that night. Allowing for the 6 hours difference in time it was still a fast trip. The women were most happy to arrive home. The program was arranged by the Civic League finance committee of which Mrs. John Peter is chairman. Mrs. Peter introduced the speaker and announced a food and rummage sale at Legion hall Oct. 22, requesting everyone to donate. Mrs. Harlan Reid accompanied for singing of "America, the Beautiful" and Mrs. A. B. Phillips led the pledge of allegiance. Adopt Budget Mrs. Arthur H. Latimer, chairman of the budget committee presented a report which was adopted. This allows $100 for skating rink, $25 for Girl Scouts and $10 a month for the restroom caretaker. Twenty-two members have paid dues. Proceeds from the sales table were $2.60. Tea was served at the close by Mmes. Sidney and Manuel Brownstone a nd committee to which Mmes. J. H. Woodstock and G. F. Reynolds were added. The table was centered with a bouquet of fall flowers in autumn shades and Mmes. R. R. Rogers and Arvig Nelson 'poured.
