(Continued from Page 1) restore in the people the belief that they who receive must also give. Mr. Dickinson, a DCS Moines lawyer and presently president of the senior DCS Moines Chamber of Commerce, is a son of L. J. Dickinson, former U. S. representative and former U. S. Senator. His mother was a daughter of the Ambrose A. Calls. HE COMPARED conditions of 100 years ago with those of today. Toil had no terrors for the early settlers — they were all workers. The women of the pioneer household were among the constant toilets. In addition to the ordinary housework they were also artisans and manufacturers. They had to spin, weave, cut clothing for their family, and were the teachers of their children. There were other problems in addition to coming, into wild country, breaking the sod, building the home. Among these problems were the Indians, who roamed this area, and the fearful blizzards of the early days with none of the present day methods of fighting the wind and the snow. And also there was the fear of the prairie fire, sweeping across 'the dry prairie grass. TODAY it's a young world, Mr. Dickinson said. Sixty per cent of the population today had not been born when the ,great depression of 1929 began. Half were not born when Hitler invaded Poland. More than 40 per cent were not born when the first atom bomb fell. And 11 per cent of the population had not been born when Kennedy was inaugurated. Mr. Dickinson asked for reexamination of the fundamentals of human behavior of the pioneers as men of character, integrity and stature to be applied to today's problems. He said the people are in need of new goals beyond the technology that has given so many material things. Too many have become jaded and apathetic, yet at the same time restless and uneasy. THE YOUNGER generation can not know the pioneer problems of hardship, sickness, want and unending physical toil in the log cabins. They can not know of the slow progress of evolution that transformed the prairies and the swamps into the beautiful farms of today. However they can find a measure of respect in the museum exhibits for their Alfttii (I***) forefathers who broke th«! toil in this area. ; ' ' There Wefe some 406 Who heard the program it) ffOfit of the flew historical building, formerly the Legion hall, the G.
