Lutherans in Welfare Fund Appeal Here Kickoff Meeting ' Held ( at Clear Lake The annual appeal for funds for the work of the Lutheran Welfare society will be presented to 100 Lutheran congregations in 13 North Iowa counties in the coming week.

Jacobson Ames, superintendent of the new Beloit children's home, pointed out how the work of the Lutheran Welfare and his institutioi Good Samaritan Home Is Now Going Concern, Trustees Say interlock. "The Lutheran Welfare," he aid, "is a demonstration of the aith we hold and a translation o he gospel of Jesus Christ into a anguage the people understand. "Your gift, laid on the offering for Lutheran Welfare in your church may be a cup of cold water to one who is thirsty, a visit to the prison to minister unto one in need, clothing to the naked or food for the hungry." Judge Butler Speaks Judge W. P. Butler, Mason City, 1st floor Dedication Planned for Oct. 9 The Good Samaritan home in Mason City is now an accomplished fact with 21 patients in residence and the building more than half completed, it was reported Saturday by the board of trustees for the home's building fund. The conditions under which the trust fund was established a year ago have been more than complied with, the trustees decided in authorizing that it be dissolved and the money be made available for completing the building. Dr. Draper Long, secretary- treasurer, was authorized to write a check for the balance in the fund. Dr. George M. Crabb was chairman of the meeting, as president of the board. Other members present included Mayor Howard E. Bruce and John Gallagher. Reports on Progress The Rev. E. M. Mueller, superintendent of the home, at the board session discussed progress made during the last year in the construction and fund raising campaign. He reported: 1. Approximately $72,000 already has been raised. There are $7,000 out in promissory notes and Y.M.C.A. Top in 2nd Report One team in the Y. M. C. A. membership drive went over the top in the 2nd report meeting held Friday night. The Clayburg Indians hit 100.2 per cent of then- quota and the Chenault Pirates were a good 2nd with 94 per cent. The teams are in opposite "baseball leagues" of the drive. Commissioner Fred Heneman declared all players in the minors "free agents" Friday, meaning any of them can sign anyone to a "Y contract." Previously iherc have been keepoff lists which prevented one solicitor from seeing those prospects on the list of another. An all-star team of 9 players and a manager will be named Monday and the 2 clubs to make the world series will be known after the final report. The Indians shot iar out ii front of the American league pack. Their nearest rivals were Orviile Knutson's Red Sox who were fielding a .540 mark. In^ 3rd was Ivan Barnes Athletics' with I 49Q.

"In the summer of 1914 my father must have had a good year in the grain market as he took mother and the 3 McEnaneys .on a Great Lakes trip from Duluth to Buffalo. At'that time the 'Norohic' plied between Duluth and Sarriia," said McEnaney, who formerly lived in Waucoma. "There were 3 sister ships: The 'Noronic,' the 'Hamonic/ which burned in 1945, and the 'Huronic,' all operated by the Canadian Steamship Lines. The 'Noronic' was the largest of the sister ships, in fact, the largest boat on the lakes, On various trips we rode on all 3 sister ships as well as the American boats, the large 'City of Cleveland' and the 'City of Detroit.' Shortly after we boarded the Nononic for our first trip, word got around that the unusually large vessel for the Lakes was top heavy and had badly listed in her trial runs the year before. This spoiled the. .trip for mother but not for the rest of us.

"I happened to think of the.old Greek adage, 'In the morning of life we learn, in the afternoon we teach and in the evening we pray.' "The response has been far greater than I had anticipated and these hymns have become so popular with our listeners that I recently found it necessary to publish a book of hymns we feature on the air. The letters of acknowledgment from boys and girls in the service during the war and from parents thanking us for having brought 'a little bit of home to their boys and girls' have been the loveliest tributes we have ever received." * Robert E.

It isn't so hard to understand why such souvenirs have been brought from overseas. There's » a certain sentimental vslue about them which is not to be denied. But, apparently there's some danger attached to them, too. At Camden, N. J., the other day, a man went bezerk with a souvenir pistol and killed more than a dozen persons. We don't expect things like that to happen every day. But there are such items as grenades, shells and similar items which have been kept. At Philadelphia a war trophies safety committee is • seeking to eliminate the peril they present. It sounds like a step in the right direction. Many of those souvenirs were made for the express purpose of destruction. Precautions wouldn't be out of the way. .. Announcing the THOMAS MACHINE CO. WE DO ALL KINDS OF MACHINE WORK.
