SAYS OR, SPENGE Gives Graphic Picture o World Situation in Message. Upon the United States denenci the future of the world, for geo graphically and historically it oc cupies the strategic place, the Re W. H. Spence of the First Meth odlat church declared at the annua Christmas party of the Chamber o Commerce at the Hotel Hanfor Tuesday night. "Two words arrest us in an Christmas watchword--peace an goodwill," said the speaker. "As we glance over our two hem iapberes at this moment how segre gated these two words seem to be And these words are, for all prac tial purposes. Interchangeable synonmymous, where there is good will there is peace. For goodwill i a word subject to analysis. In it ar included frankness, honesty, pa tience, unselfishness and mutua trust. These words and what thej. signify, are basic to peace. "Look about the world: China un dertrodden by Japan; Russia goadei by Japan; Poland sleepless lest an enemy from cither side of her pitch upon her in the dark; Germany at tempting to ruin every Jewish horn' and destroy the religion bequeathed her by Martin Luther; France sharpening her sword and increasing her armaments; bedlam in Spain, in Haiti and in Cuba; saber rattling in Italy and in Ireland Even in England and in the United States suspicion, mistrust, watchful waiting. How Much Better, "How much better are we than were the bloodthirsty tribes from which we sprang? Pursue the study of anthropology if you will, the science of man, or archeology, tho science of everything that is old, and recall the brutal characteristics of our far-off ancestors who ate each other on the banks of the Weser and the Elbe and the Rhine. How far have the nations of today progressed through the centuries? Some one may answer 'we have not progressed far, 1 for have we not blood-thirsty lynchings throughout the land and how about the conditions under which people live in mining centers and in the slums of our imperial cities? "That la the dark side ot the picture. There is the brighter Side, the words 'peace "and good will' do not represent merely figments of the imagination. He, whose birth we celebrate upon the twenty-fifth of this month, left a legacy to our world which it is scarcely beginning to understand. I care not what a man's religious faith may be, whether he looks upon Jesus as God incarnate, or as the beat and noblest man who ever lived, or aa the greatest and most exalted product of the Jewish nation, we all join in homage to Him who llvei and taught as no other man aver lived and taught. Blessed Are Merelfull " 'Blessed are the merciful,' 'blessed are the pure in heart,' 'My peace I leave with you,' 'As much as lieth in you live at peace with all men,' 'If when thou layest thy gift upon the altar and remember that thy brother hath aught against "WORLD IN TURMOIL" THE REV. \V. H. SPENCE Walkathon Is Feature of Annual Show City's Newcomers Are Introduced at Session. Mason City's recent wolkathon was never as entertaining or as productive of real laughs as the 'walkathon" staged in the lobby of the Hotel Hanford Tuesday evening as one of the features of the annual Christmas party of the Mason City Chamber of Commerce. Hal Keldle's Green Mill orchestra furnished the music. The "sweetheart couple," Mae Vest f Joe J.

HEGG'S Where Quality Tells and Price Sells East State thee, go first and reconcile thyself with thy brother.' "On that first Christmas the retinues of Heaven sang 'Peace on earth; good will to men. 1 That, thsy sang, is God's final objective for inhabitants of the earth. "So in this Christmas season con we contribute our influence toward peace and goodwill? Is there trouble and misunderstanding in the home, between man and wife, between parents and children or among children themselves? Let there be reconciliation and trust. "Is there tension in business circles and disagreement between organizations of business firms in a city? Is there harah criticism and misrepresentation and mistrust? Let there be reconciliation and trust. Is There Bickering? "Is there unreasonable bickering and condemnation among statesmen and politicians in our own country? Let every citizen give those in authority over us a chance to incorporate their dreams into substance. Let there bo peace and confidence and co-operation. "Are International matters chaotic? Talk of increased armaments and preparedness will not correct that situation. Let there be, instead, the will toward peace. Let us foster ?ood will until the other nations will discover that there is someth'ng about us different from what they thought they might expect. Goodwill grows In a rising temperature of kind words and attitudes and confidence. Good will dies when the mercury drops to the level of boast- ings and sarcasm and abuse. "Unless the United States saves the world it will scarcely he saved at all. Geographically and historically we occupy the supreme place of responsibility. This surely ought to schock our. smugness-and challenge our.resourcefulness. Let these be good will toward all men, and there will be peace on earth forevermore."

Mason City laughed at its own troubles, problems and shortcomings of the past year aa 450 members of the Chamber of Commerce and their guests attended the ninth annual Christmas party at the Hotel Hanford Tuesday night. Numerous events of the past year were recalled in a. humorous vein, with most attention centered on the antics of the city council, with its changing formula from a "five man" to a 3.2 organization and the appointment of a "dummy" manager. The "new deal" became a. "raw deal" and the "Lord's business" became confused at timea with 'Laird's business." The play representing the city council in action was only a part of the entertainment, which included a realistic reproduction of the recent walkathon-marathon, the singing of Christmas carols and a Christmas message by the Rev. W. H. Spence of the First Methodist church, the program changing with surprising effectiveness from the ridiculous to the sublime. "Two Cow Man" Too. While the chief action of the skit waa built about the city council as the outstanding event of the year, this also revealed the story of the ascension of Adolphus Muscle-in Schanke to power, of the refusal of ?15,000 in government money for constructing the city water plant and Prank Miller's fight in behalf Of the "two-cow man." With R. E. Nyijuist playing: the part of Mayor J. T. Laird; Dr. R. F. Kunz, J. J. Burns; Max Kissick, David Olson;-Fulton Potter, W. J. Pagenhart; Roe Thompson, H. M. Knudson; B. J, Drummond, Clerk J. H. McEwen; C. K. Cornwall, Al DeBuhr; James Rae, E. H. Crofoot; Fred Shatter, City Engineer Stevens; Bob Will, A. M. Schanke; C. K. Kinney, P. F, Hopkins; W. Earl Hall, Frank Miller; F. M. Humphrey, Chief Dan Shire; Arlelgh'Marshall, Luke B. Miller; James W. Eiuign, Lester Dibble; and Jo« Daniels and Don McPeak, white wings, the stoty of the turbulent events of the year was unfolded. . . - . "In a year of confusion for the damn stamps we pay; "So quit mumblin 1 and your grum- blin' o'er that rocky road to Du lin, "The old s;i:p road, the old scrip road." The mayor's negotiations for lower utility rates' were also reviewed. Mayor Laird observed that "Mr. Hanlon is a very sick man." "How long has he been sick? asked Olson. "Elver since the election," Knudson observed. When the mayor insisted neither Hanlon nor Carl Smith would sign the affidavits that he sought a "dummy contract," Burns branded the new deal as a "raw deal," After a delegation of women appeared before it, the council, 'following an oration by Olson on the goodness of womanhood, voted to increase the salaries of the personnel of the city "lavatory." Luke Miller Himself. While the council was in the ante room interviewing the women Luke Miller made a fiery oration ridiculing the government for being three years behind him. The petition of 3,000 voters asking for reinstatement of City Manager Hopkins was referred to as 'soreheads" by Burns, which the council sang: following 'So-orehead bunch, plain crazy, you're just MAYOR LIKED IT Mayor J: T. Laird, who was in attendance at the Chamber, of Commerce Christmas party Tuesday night, expressed himself as "delighted" with the entertainment provided, the feature of which was a burlesque on the city council. "I enjoyed it and think everyone , elaa did," said the mayor. "There was a feeling of cheer and good fellowship about the entire affair which I thought was a, real success." "Dumb and you've lost your punch. "That Is just why we thumb our noses, 'Woodenhead, so-orehead bunch. 'You couldn't make 'em vote for Hopkins, "So you'll eat Crofoot lunch. "Ballots we count and not petitions, "Woodenhead, so-ore head bunch. "Hopkins told the voters he would quit if we went in, "We taught him a thing or two. "Well, his resignation was for us a piece of pie, "He learned something he never knew, "All of you think that you'll get Hopkins ? "Honest is that your hunch? "Then why do you think we choose a dummy "Woodenliead, so-ore head bunch," The council then considered Tom Arthur's petition asking It to rescind the action barring walkathons, and a curfew law which Burns suggested be changed to fewcur law. Beer permits were considered for Al Capone, "Bugs" Moran and the Touhy boys, the city solicitor, who some time before had crawled from under the tabte, stating "they ore as good as Rome of the others you have approved. 1 ' The scene opened with the city councllmen sitting with bowed heads as if In prayer. Aa the clerk called the roll, Olson and Knudson an' swered "Ay bane here" and the mayor "Amen/' Pagenhart aaked "What is the question?" and Burns ejaculated "Here, dammit." In for "IJcklnj." As tile mayor reminded his council that "this Was the Lord's business" Knudson came with the aside that undoubtedly "the Lord's business was In for a bad licking'." The first matter considered waa the reduction of salaries, specifically the cutting of the city clerk's Income to ?25 a month because of his inexperience. The question carried until Bums got a. coll from W. H. Griebling, secretary of the Labor assembly, aiibr which he changed his vote. DeBuhr turned oil the radio and HUgh .Johnson's Voice was heard: "Synthetic hob- gobblins, with doctors; sink the nose, dead torn cats." After Crofoot Was elected the "dummy manager" he appeared before tne council, asking permission to bliild a sewer alongside his property. "Is this your Moaon City or your Windsor, Canada, lot?" he was asked. The crowd roared. The scrip road, built of $10,000 In scrip, came in for considerable razzing. Th'e councllmen had never heard of City Engineer Stevens, but upon being Informed by the clerk he was the city Engineer, they heard his report on the scrip road, which was given In eong as follows: The Old Scrip Road. "Down the old acrlp road "Though you'll never find out where it la by looking in maps "By a llttla investigation you'll discover perhaps "That this proposition la not cement but ju«t a composition "Is the old scrip road, the old scrip road. 'Scrip stamps con pay any old antique debt "If others refuse them, try the Globe-Gazette "The road begins just nowhtra and ends not far away "And Its rougher thin a sinner's final Judgment day. "In a moment of delusion, we lake scrip here today. Appears. .After the Bounding of trumpet a and much felnflare Schanke appeared while the council members leaped to their feet. He announced Jobs had been provided for "all deserving and unemployed democrats" and even "former republicans." As for those who are atill republicans "the inmates of the state'! asylums are well treated. As for the small residuum' -"No profanity, please, Mr. Schattke," pleaded the mayor. "This is the Lord's business and (hurriedly) yours, of course." Schanke explained it would "be as bard to Und a place in the relief program for obstructionists as It--' "Was for you to find a place at the Roosevelt dinner," Knudson de dared. After the council had refused thi ?15,000 gift from the governmen 1 and "Uncle Adolph," Frank Miller cam* to voice his objections to the milk ordinance in the followlni milk to th Plaintiff song: r 'We're headed for the last route, "Gonna peddle ouv cows. butcher and cry: " 'So long, new deal, it's or las time to try, " 'You've^ sent us to the last mitt route,' "Change the law, city council change the law, "Change the law, change tho law city council, "If you don't-"Gotta quit, Davey Olson, gott quit, gotta quit, "Gotta quit, Johnny Burns, gott · quit."

Addlph's Children Got Jobs. Two white wings appeared sta ! Irij? they were part of the" "dlv work» corpse" for "all Adolph's ehl dr«n got jobs these days." To which the mayor replle "That's right gentlemen. Things ar better. Schanke days are her again. Let us rise brethren an sing: "Schanke days are here again, "Let's drink a stein of beer again, "And jobs for all are near again, "Bchanke days are here again. "Altogether, let's begin, "The old deal's out, the new deal in, "And best of all, -we'll soon get gin "Schanko days are here again.
