Corner Legion Auxiliary and Mason City High School Win Freedoms Foundation Awards The Garner American Legion Auxiliary and Mason C i t y HigJ School have been named nationn recipients oC 1953 Freedom Award of the Freedoms Foundation. The two Northern Iowa winners were listed as two of eight Iowa individuals and organizations to re ccivc the annual awards. The awardecs in the Found atloa's filth annual awards pro gram were announced at specin George Washington Birthday cere monies Monday at the Found ation's Valley Forge, Pa., head quarters. The awards are pre tented to American cKi/.ens,. or galuxations and schools for their contributions to a better u n d e r standing of the American way of life. The Gifford Olson u n i t of the Garner American Legion Auxiliary won the George Washington Honoi Medal--one of 20 awarded nationally in the Community Prog ran category--for its "Key to Peace' program. The program was cited because it "wakens schools ana public to essentials of securing the key to peace." Honor C e r t i f i c a t e An Honor Certificate Award will be presented to Mason City High School for its class officers election p l a n patterned after the "party caucus" system used in na tional elections. This is the second Foundation award for the school; it received a Principal Award in the school category in 1953. The awards will be presented in regional ceremonies this spring. The Garner Auxiliary also received a $500, second-place prize, for its Americanism work on the "Key to Peace" program at the national convention of the American Legion and Auxiliaries at St. Louis last fall. Key f i g u r e in the "Key to Peace" program is Mrs. C. L. (Mae) Strate, Auxiliary Americanism chairman. She has been prominent in Auxiliary circles statewide and nationally. The "Key to Peace" program is based on material outlined in the book of that title by Clarence Manion, former c h a i r m a n of President Eisenhower's Commission on Intergovernmental Relations. Unit of Study The Manion book is being used as a unit of study in the sociology and speech classes of t h e Garner schools. Various Garner civic and luncheon clubs endorsed the book as text material. The Garner "Key to Peace" program is being used as a model for setting up similar programs in other states. Arthur L. Conrad, president of the Heritage Foundation, Inc., said schools in eight states--Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Iowa--arc using the "Key to Peace" book or material derived from it. Mason City High School was honored for devising and putting into practice a "grass-roots" method o! electing class officers. It adhered to most of the principles and methods normally followed in electing a President nationally. Three Pirtits The plan called for division of the homerooms into two parties-Nationalist and Federalist. What followed was in a small way the national procedure: Precinct cau cus, state caucus, campaigning emergence of a third (Progressive^ party and finally terminating in national conventions.
