Mason City Unit Wins Mention in A, L A, Bulletin The Mason City unit of the American Legion auxiliary won mention In the February number of the Bulletin of the Auxiliary concerning its Christmas party for the children of Mason City. The item from the Bulletin follows. "Twenty-five hundred children met Santa Glaus and received gifts from him at the annual children's Christmas party, sponsored jointly by the Legion and Auxiliary of Mason City Fifteen hundred pounds of candy and 400 pounds of nuts were put up in cellophane bags, attractively tied with Christmas ribbons by the auxiliary women. One of these bags went to each child. "The party was held in the Mason City armory and the capacity of the big building was taxed. Entertainment was provided by the junior drum corps and the grade school orchestra, directed by W. A. Storer. The party differed from those of former years in that an invitation was extended to every child in the community below the fifth grade in school. In other years attendance was limited to children of ex-service men. The day following the party, the Mason City unit (with other groups) had a Christmas tree in a park, about which all children of the city, regardless of age, were invited to gather and sing carols.

Parents Should Warn Child Against Taking Ride With Strangers By BKOOKE 1'El'EKS CHURCH When Mrs. Jones was a. little girl some 40 years ago, her parents laid down a hard and fact rule, and kept insisting on it until it was engraved on her mind. She must never speak to a stranger or accept any Iclnd of favor from him or her. Kidnaping Is not a. modern discovery, but has increased in frequency of late years, owing to many factors, not the least of which is the automobile. There should be an amendment to the rules of 40 years ag-o. Children should be warned ag-ainat accepting lifts from any but near friends of the family. One mother has even gone so far as to specify which friends her i children may drive with .so as to narrow down the possibilities of error. To any but the chosen few, the children return a polite refusal, explaining that they prefer to walk, or have been sent out for exercise. The rule may seem extremely severe, but there is- sufficient warrant for it. It is true that most of the people who offer rides to children do so out of the kindness of their hearts, but there is always the chance in a thousands of the driver who has sinister intentions o£ some kind, and the child cannot be trusted to judge which is which and be governed accordingly. There Is no need to frighten the child when nuch a rule is made. The young people read the papers and hear the news and are quite able to understand the danger. Generally they will be willing and glad to take reasonable precautions to guard against it. A child is warned against water, fire, traffic, and accepts the warnings without question. Certainly it is only common sense to caution them against the even greater danger of accepting casual rides from persons they do not knov,-.
