THINK AND WORK, ADVICE GIVEN BY NORTHFIELD MAN Kiwanians Entertain Mason City Boys and Girls at Meeting. Three essentials of life--the ability to think, a working philosophy of life and hard work--were stressed -by Dr. Donald J. Cowling, president of Carleton college, Northfield, Minn., in an address before the Kiwanis club Thursday afternoon when 99 honor students of the high school and Junior college were guests at Hotel Hanford. His talk, which included considerable humor, held the attention of his audience thruout. ^ , Dr. Cowling', who spoke on "Opportunity and the Man," said that the future of the world depended on leadership and he believed this leadership "generally would come from those students who distinguished themselves in school. There are notable exceptions to this principle, he said. To prove that education develops distinguished persons he said, that 55 per cent of the persons listed in "Who's Who," a fair way in which to judge the leaders of the nation, were college graduates. Only two Farm Bureau President^ Completes Organization per cent of the population, he pointed out, complete college courses, which shows that the percentage of successful persons drawn from colleges is unusually high. Some Have Handicaps. _"The American," Dr. Cowling continued, "is proud that this is the land of opportunity. This needs to be qualified. It is true that some persons are given unusual opportunities for development and some have handicaps. Everyone, however, generally has the opportunity to develop something out of himself. "We are not all born equal, for some have unusual aptitudes and abilities. We are not responsible for innate abilities, but we are responsible to a large extent for moulding circumstances." Success is th'e product of opportunity and the man. Dr. Cowling said he would not consider that opportunities vary but would be chiefly concerned with the individual. "I firmly believe," stated Dr. Cowling, "that the man who is born under adverse conditions Is in reality fortunate. His outlook is brighter than the individual who has everything 1 in his favor. In history the men who have been outstanding who have done the most for the progress of the world, have been those who have had poor circumstances. There are, However, some exceptions to this. Opposition Develops Strength. "Opposition develops strength. It s in meeting a problem that intelligence is developed. When there is in unfavorable arrangement of cir- umstances and lack of opportunity, he individual creates power to overcome. these obstacles and thereby levelops strength. "It is important, first of all, to earn to think. .Yours is only the Jiird generation when there was a _eneral confidence in the principle of thinking. The emphasis for a jood life used to be placed on dif: erent qualities than thinking. "With the exception of a fesv ac- (Tum to TttffO 21, Column 1).

Libby, executive secretary of the National Council for the Prevention of War in an address Thursday morning at the high school assembly. Mr. Libby, who came to Masfen City to give an address at 8 o'clock Thursday night in the Baptist church, stressed the reduction of distances in the world today. "Radio waves travel around the world in an eighth of a second. Airplanes will he developed which, will travel ;as fast as the earth; it will be possible to keep up with the dawn in them. Many other inventions have been developed which are shrinking the dimensions of the world. "Big business is working with science in unifying the world. United States companies do not have sufficient markets here--they must go to other countries. Landing stages for airplanes will probably soon be built in the ocean, forming a lane to England and then to Asia. The countries are nibbing elbows--a space doesn't matter." Mr. Libby pointed out how in various parts of the world the ; boys who do not know what war is are following intense nationalist feelings. He said that with modern science a city can lie wiped out and 'cannot be protected. In closing he urged support for the world court and the league of nations to settle disputes.

EXPERT WATCH REPAIRING PROMPT SERVICE WATCHES DIAMONDS Western Union Starts Buying Stamps Here; Change Company Policy The. Western Union Telegranh company is buying stumps for the use of its local office at the Mason City postofficc, following a change of policy of tho company, according to postdffice officials. The change came following a number of requests made by loca: postal officials to the company which formerly bought all iU stamps at its central office. Severa other large companies which for merly purchased all stamps at the postoffice of the city in which the central office was located have al ready made the change and are buy ing stamps at local offices.
