ADVOCATE SPEAKS IN FAVOR OF WORLD COURT Libby Says C o m p u l s o r y Training in Schools Is Unfair. "The whole world ia a village now," declared Frederick J. Libby, executive secretary of the National Council for the Prevention of War jefore about 150 persons ' at tha First Baptist Church. Thursday night. Mr. Libby spoke here at the Invitation of the ministerial association. - ·' Frederick J. Libby, executive secretary of the National Council for. the Prevention of War, who spoke here Thursday night, is a cousin of James D. Lennan, 14% First street southeast. They were boys together in Maine but had not seen each other for many years. "The question of war and peace has become the great issue of the time," Mr. Libby said. "We were drawn into the last- war by our trade, and we will probably be drawn into the next one. However, we like to -think we are off by ourselves and will escape the general destruction. "We need only- reflect to Know how near we are to the rest of the world. We can step to our telephone and call London. In fact we Issued a blotter this year which pictures a telephone and radio conversation between Los Angeles and Sidney, Australia.

IOWA LAND WANTED We have customer with 3,000 acres fine land, located close to. the city of Winnipeg, Canada, clear of debt, to exchange for Iowa land or income property. Ask for information. Radio Brings Together. "As the radio Is bringing us together, the 'airplane is adding to the process. The Germans are perfecting a plane which they expect to fly 500 miles an hour seven miles high. "We will be able to take down our telephone receiver and tell the operator we want to hear the opera n London. The operator will inform s the cost will be 50 cents and we tell her to add It to our bill, ''hen In a box on the wall we will e able to watch th'e scene and will e able to hear the music by meanr. f-,the telephone--and-this within[tree years, they tell ·· us. "Science furnishes new and as- onlshtng Inventions every day. It is hrinking the world, annihilating pace--making us into a world vil- "Business--big business--is add- ng enormously to the process. When he United States set up tariff walls 0' high that Canada enacted tar- ffs of' its own, what did United States business do but set factories icross that wall because business ould not do without that sales ter- itory. The world is a unit for bus- ness just as it is for science. Materials Come From Far. "For people .to say they are in- .erested only in local affairs ia ab- surbed. Clothes draw their materials 'rom all parts of the world. The world is a unit of which the nations aro parts. ' "A village has to bo organized. We can't have chaos. We must have aw and order. "Elihu Root, now 83 years old, appeared and for three hours told the senate foreign relation committee, why we should join the world court. We should join the world court because we want to do away wth.war,' i said. "The process of doing away with war involves the use of substitutions, Root told the committee. In doing away with private war we had to substitute courts. In doing away with public war we will to substitute courts. Rest Go On. "Practically the entire world belongs to the court except the United States and Soviet Russia. Wn stay out while the rest of the world goes on with the American idea. "After coming home from Europe las,ts ummer, I felt we must hasten our work to prevent another World war. Nothing would glva a feeling of greater security to the nations of. the^world than for tho United States to show a willingness to co-operate with others for the I prevention of war rather than to arm against them. "We will not be put off until next December on the world court issue. America is a pence loving country and the peacs talk is not just sentiment. The world court is the first step. ' · ' , · ' "The second matter I wish to discuss is the disarmament conference) at Geneva next year. "France has had two outstanding leaders, Polncaire and Briand. Poincaire proceeded on the theory that Germany recognizes nothing but force. 'We must arm against Germany" was his cry. Briand Trusts Groups. "Briand saw across the Rhine groups of peace loving Germans he felt h j could trust. "In Germany certain groups do not trust France. However, other German groups realize that not by arming against France but by cooperating with France can the peace of central Europe be procured. "In other words there are two groups. Pne says to arm and prepare. The other says co-operate with. Which 'group Is the most reasonable? I "I'll tell you what I think about building an army against the world. We build more, they build more, we build more, they build more--no one is ever adequately prepared. That-is the history of Europe up to 1914. There is no hope on that road. There is death on that road. "Our country is already violating the spirit of the London conference by building more navy than the British can afford.. We must work together instead of against. Recognized as Power. "Our country is recognized all over the world as the most powerful military power--potentially. If we develop that potentiality to actuality, we will be the Germany of the future. · · "If the United States wrecks the disarmament conference next February, it will be the worst thing ever done and God pity our souls." The third point Mr. Libby consld- Phono 134 Kretsge Bliig. Daly Epigrams! There is always room for more oysters In the soup.

"It is not fair to make boys allow the military theory to be thrust down their throats for two years when two theories are battling in the world. "It is not fair that Quakers arc excused from military training in schools. Can't a Methodist have a conscience, top ? - · ..

Entertain at February Meeting of Legion Post at Armory. The Senegalese members of the organization entertained at the February meeting of Clausen-Wordan post of the Legion at the armory Thursday evening, resenting a minstrel show that displayed singing ability as well as originality. Music for the performance was supplied by Pettiford's orchestra and the Senegalese drum and bugle corps. , G. M. Woodruff appeared before the meeting to make an. offer of a plot in Memorial cemetery, sufficient for 12 graves, at the price of ?200. The matter will be decided upon at a future meeting. Capt. W.' A. Elliott, national guard instructor here, sought to have the post go on record in protest to the apearance of Frederick J. Libby of the National Council for the Prevention of War who apeared at the,First Baptist church Thursday evening- by permission of the Ministerial association. The 'matter however, was tabled. Colonel Hollar, Commanding Officer of Regiment, Says Plans Under Way. The first step in a series of contemplated changes that will bring about the reorganization of local national guard units took place Friday when Capt. Vern E. Mott, commander of H company for the past year sent his resignation to the adjutant general's office at Des Moines. Altho no orders have been received on the matter it is understood that Captain Mott's place will be taken by Capt. Stuart Grummon, who will be transferred from the staff of the One Hundred Thirty- third infantry to command H company. Other changes in H company, as well as possible changes in F company, commanded by Capt. Frederick B. Shaffer, are understood to be coming, Edward J. Vogel, second lieutenant in H company, is understood to have sent in his resignation earlier in the week. No Immediate Change. A communication purported to have come from the office of Col. Gordon C. Hollar, commander of the One Hundred Thirty-three infantry of the Iowa national guard at Sioux City, was received by the Globe-Gazette Thursday, announcing that Captain Grummon was to be transferred from the regimental staff to command H company here and that Charles Van Horn, first lieutenant in the unit, was to be made captain of F company. Altho the communication was in an envelope bearing a Sioux City postoffice stamp it carried no signature and was not in form usually sent out by national guard officers. Because of this the Globe-Gazette telegraphed Colonel Hollar for verification and received the following reply: "There is no change in status of Grummon and Van Horn. However, some changes will be made in Mason City units shortly." In Guard Nine-. Years. Captain Mott. stated that, the re-j und Coke company were taking up his time to th'e extent tliat he could not give adequate attention to the many duties of company commander. His resignation makes the close of nine years of service in local national guard units. Captain Mott enlisted in the national guard in February, 1922, as a private. He rose successively to pri- viate first 'class, corporal, line sergeant and for a year was mess sergeant. He was commissioned second lieutenant in May, 1928, and Jan. 8, 1930, was appointed captain of H company. He has just received the report from the ordnance inspector which states that the property of COAL the company is in good condition. IDEAL PLBG. HTG. CO. Phone 70S 514 S.

First-Aid Class of Red Cross and Hospital Progressing Rapidly ·The class in .first-aid being conducted each Monday and Wednesday evening by the Mercy hospital training school for nurses and the Cerro Gordo county chapter of^the American Red Cross is proving mutually helpful and interesting to both organizations, Miss Agneg Helbig, executive secretary, announces. The class has now completed about half of the 15 hour course in first- aid and recently chose Dr. T. A. Burke as medical advisor.and examiner. Wednesday evening Dr. Burke appeared before the class in a brief address supplementing the instruction given by T. L. Connor, lay instructor for the chapter. Dr. Burke emphasized and contrasted the conditions existing when first-aiders take charge of an emergency situation as compared with those existing when nurses take charge of patients in their regular line of duty. He listed first-aid to be given in the order of its importance as bleeding, treatment for shock, prevention of infection, and transportation. He spoke of the similarity arid the differences between shock oc- curing from injuries or fear as contrasted with shock caused by excessive bleeding and the treatment for each. He closed his talk with a discussion of treatment for burns. Following his instruction, Dr. Burke remained as an interested spectator while the class continued practice in artificial respiration under the supervision ot Mr. Connor. Next week the class will have a demonstration in artificial respiration by a group of junior girls who have been instructed previously by the local chapter. COPIES OF CODE SENT TO BOARD S u g g e s t i o n s Concerning Bdilding Rules Is Sought. The work of mimeographing copies of the proposed building code for the city has been completed and copies are being mailed to the National Board of Fire Underwriter and to various material associations for suggestions and criticisms, ac-r cording to P. F. Hopkins, city manager. Work on the new code has been underway for several months. The proposed code will also'be out into the hands of various local persons interested in construction details, Mr. Hopkins said. Out of the suggestions and critic- Isms of the proposed code, city officials hope to evolve a code for presentation to the city council at a later date. Mr. Hopkins declared SERVSCE rwc.
