Scouts Not Militaristic, Minister Declares in Address. "For 1937 we pledge ourselves lo bring a better scouting program to more boys in our area!" That was the oath taken by the executive board of the North Iowa Council of the Boy Scouts of America at the annual banquet held at the Hotel Hanford Wednesday night and incidentally was the keynote of the program. The oath was taken upon installation of officers and was suggested by the new scout executive, Earle 1C. Behrend, in his introductory talk to the scouters of this area. P. C. Heneman, newly elected commissioner for 1937, conducted Ihe installation. Officers Installed. Officers installed for the ensuing year at this meeting were H. L. Campbell, president; F. C. Heneman, commissioner; Butler, sea scout commodore; and A. J. Marshall, treasurer; vice presidents installed included Ralph Lloyd Jones in charge of administration; the Rev. William Galbreth, in charge of awards; T. L. Connor, in charge of organization; Dr. J. L. Pauley in charge of the program; Martin Sar, Charles City, in charge of finance, and Dean S. L. RugUind in charge of education. Board members installed at large were D. G. Klempnaucr, F M. Humphrey, M. C. Lawson, J. F. Price, Dr. B. Raymond Weston, Earl Godfrey, C. G. Maudsley, Ralph Slanbery, Leon Thomas, R B. Irons, W. B. Lucas of Nora Springs and Ihe Rev. Bernarc While. "The evil in the world is purl of the good twisted out of ils regulai channel into an irregular chan- cl," said the Rev. C. E. Flynn aslor of the First M. E. church n speaking to the scouters in th' rincipal address of the evening. "Boy's Life Clean." "A boy's life is clean and beau- itul. There are two things lo bi lone, however, in order -to hav a good thing remain so--there must be a normal opportunity fo lovelopmont and expression and a lormal environment in which to ive and grow. That is our prob- em. The Boy Scouts have been .ormed by some as a militaristic association. There are those who are anxious for us to,bt weak and defenseless while all other na- .ions are armed to the teeth. I regret wa\% but I do not share the opinion of some that our people shall disarm and leave themselves .he helpless prey to others who lave no intention of disarming. Until all nations disarm I am not in favor of any of it, "The Boy Scout movement is not a militaristic organization as ;nay be shown through Ihe words of one ot its most important oaths. lo do a daily good turn. I do not believe war can be done away with by pronouncement, but it can ! done away with by the spreading of good will and the kindly, unselfish service of one person to another. We should not let a day pass without doing a deed of kindness to another. Not Militaristic. "With that spirit at heart we cannot be militaristic and it will do more than all the drives, propaganda, leagues and treaties we could enter into. The greatest barrier against war is the simple spirit of brotherhood. Take the Boy Scout obligation and d o . a good turn every day to that person who would least expect it from us. "The scout movement is really a young movement," said Mr. Flynn. i Mi 1 Charles E. Strickland Buys Webster Home Purchase of Ihe home of Mr and Mrs. B. A. Webster at 8 Beaumont drive by 'Charles E. Strickland, vice president of the Unitec Light and Power company, and new head of the utility propertie. in Mason City, was announced Thursday.

Jean, oldest of the three, may precede the other members of the family who have remained in Chicago in coming to Mason City in order to .1 start the second semester of the H high school in which she is in the i junior class. Awarded Beaver A. J. Marshall, retiring president of flic Norlh Iowa Council of the Boy Scouts of America, .was awarded Ihe silver beaver this year for distinguished service to boyhood. "I am happy to receive this recognition," said Mr. Marshall, "and working: for it was one of the must enjoyable things I ever did." STUDY MADE BY IOWA CITIES OF MANAGER FORM Clinton Committee Coming to Mason City; Hopkins Marshalllown Speaker. Two recent developments in the state on the city manager form of government are of interest to Mason City. First, the Clinton Chamber of cring--that is the future. It is olc and trite to say that the boys anc girls of today are the men and women of tomorrow -- but it is true. "Whoever plants an influence in the life of a boy or girl will find his work continuing long after he has finished his toil. I admire that which you come together to council, a movement of youth that rests upon the natural- instincts. There are no weaklings on the one hand and there are no hard- boiled personalities on the other. You produce real manhood. The movement is an impressive one which trains the boy to take care of himself." Awarded Beaver. A. J. Marshall, retiring council president, was in charge of the meeting and was awarded the silver beaver, an honor bestowed on the scouter each year for distinguished service lo boyhood in the council. The award was presented by Mr. Butler, himself rt holder of the award and a former president of the council. Only six other scoutcrs besides Ml 1 . Marhall have been awarded this lonor. They are Dr. B.. Raymond tVeston, Dr. J. C. Powers of Hamp- on, Hugh H. Shepard, the Rev William Galbreth, W. P. Butlei and Walter Maves. Mr. Galbreth was also awardec .he scoutmaster's key by R. B Irons, superintendent of schools past president o£ awards. The scout master's key is given fo .raining service of five years will .wo- weks spent in camp. Mr jalbreth has 15 year of regis- .ercci service to his credit, staring in 1921 as assistanl scoutmas- .er. Ralph Lloyd Jones paid a tribute to the retiring executive Commerce is sending a committee lo Mason City to make a study at the city manager government here. Second, P. F. Hopkins, PWA director for Iowa and former city manager here, addressed a joint meeting of the service-clubs and Ihe Chamber of Commerce at Marshalllown on the council-manager form of government. The committee, chosen at Clinton to make a special study of city manager government with the view of presenting it for adoption in that municipality, also included Dubuque as one of the cities to be visited. Favors Principles. "After studying this general form of municipal government we wish to report lhal your commit- ec is unanimously in favor ot the eneral principles involved," the Remittances Needed on Seals Sales to Complete Reports Persons who accepted Christmas seals distributed by the Cerro Gordo Tuberculosis association and have not made their remittances yet, have been urged by the officers to do so at once. Final reports tin Cerro Gordo's participation of this annual campaign to obtain funds for fighting tuberculosis are now be4ng compiled and it is necessary that all money be turned in, it was stated. Indications are that the seals sales in Cerro Gordo will equal and perhaps surpass the records of previous years. Dr. E. C.Martin C H I R O P O D I S T Successor lo Dr. J. D. Heeler 316 Isl. Nat. Bk. Dlds. Ph. 331 "U was only in 1H09 (hat Sir Baden Powell slartcd the movement in England. A year alter that it was started in America. In thai short stretch of lime three men have qualified Ihcmselves for places revered and,' honored by the boys of Ibis generation and many to come." These men Mr. Flynn siatec were Sir Baden Powell, Ernest Seaton Thompson and Daniel Carter Beard. "Since 1310 we have seen the Boy Scout movement set vip from coast to coast. In 26 years ahnosl 900,000 members have joined and troops have sprung up everywhere. Who knows how long i will be until there will be a million members? Interested in Youth. "No enterprise 1 rests on so firn a foundation. And lhal is because it has as its interest the welfare o: youth." The chief resources of any country arc ils men, women anc children, according to Mi-. Flynn He said that in 1D18 he was shocked to read in a New York paper an editorial which said in effect tha there were those who said the war was being fought over dollars, bu it was well to remember that the goods of the world are wortl fighting for. "I don't think the goods of tin world are worth fighting tor a: goods, but when we are dealinj in human values we are workin; in recognition of the fact that hu man beings are the most important resources of any land. "The future is not somethmp rumbling down hill to meet us. I is rather something to which w climb up, something which we grow into. A parade of childrci marching down the slrcct--tha is the future.

" W e a r e f u r t h e r mutually RELIEF LOAD IS BELOW FIGURES FOR LAST YEAR Cerro Gordo Number Little More Than Half of That of 1936. Cerro Gordo county has approximately 21S families on relief at present compared with about 400 families in the corresponding period of last year, according to the board of super- greed that the plan should be nvesligaled in detail by a com- "littee from the Clinton Chanter of Commerce in some city or ities where it is now operating uccessfully. We would recommend thai uch a committee visit Dubuque nd Mason City and secure the etailed information that is es- ential. for a complete survey. ^ committee could then dcter- line and evaluate the benefits lat would accrue to Clinton il! L were to adopt the council nanager plan of municipal gov- Tnment." Is No ranaeca. The subject of Mr. Hopkins' ddress in Marshalltown was tak- n lo indicate there was also in- erest in the plan there. The form- r Mason City manager told his isteuers that the council manager orm ot government is no panacea or the governmental ills of any nunicipality. "Neither," he declared, "is il magic formula by which all Ihose ills which arc often found n city governments in America can be cured. Those cities which are considering a shift in their form of government in the hopes of improving local conditions had realize that before the shift is made." As a matter of fact, Mr. Hop- tins pointed out, cities in America get out of their municipal gov- ernmenls, just what they put in. If, he declared, the taxpayers of city want a good city government they can get it just as well vith one form of government as mother. It they are inlerestcd in what their council, their commission or their managers arc doing nd keep in touch with them constantly, they'll get good government, because they are putting something into that government. Manager Good Business. The best argument, Mr. Hop- .tins said, that can be used for a city manager form of government is to say that it is the logical business government for a municipality. "For, after all," he argued, "a municipality is a corporation and the taxpayers are the stockholders. A city manager bears the same relation to the city that a manager does to a private corporation with this exception--that Ihe city manager's salary is hardly commensurate with the compensation of the manager of a correspondingly large private corporation." Mr. Hopkins said I hut the council-manager form of municipal government is Ihe result of evolution in America. He told how Slaunton, Va., wished to carry out a certain public improvement in 1908 and engaged an engineer to do the job. "He did it so well and saved the city so much money," Mr. Hopkins said, "that the council-manager plan was a natural result of that experiment. Since that .lime between 450 and 500 American cities have adopted modifications of the plan and few that have adopted have given it up." Problems Never Ihe Same. Different cities, Mr. Hopkins said, present different problems in management and government. He cited his own experience in Ames and Mason City as examples. In Ames, he said, because il is a city of home owners and fixed payrolls--Ihe college and the highway commission--and because il has good paying municipally owned public utilities there is no public health problem, no police problem, no fire problem and no tax problem. Mason City, spreac over an area of 12Vi miles, with UK low wago paying industries presents the other side of the picture, he declared. There, he said. problem, a health problem and the problem of making the income go around. He discussed briefly the Iowa law governing council-manage! forms and was inclined to lamen the fact that in America there was no such thing as the Englisl enjoy--a class which devotes itsel to problems of government, the civil service class. He comparec m u n n i c i p a l politics in America with the English system and con eluded that the latter was far more efficient. visors. 'i Some increase in the load has taken place the lust few weeks as industrial operations have winter. Last load was cut lightened for the summer the relief down to practically nothing. Upward Trend Evident. An upward trend in the relief load has been evident over the state the last few weeks. The Iowa emergency relief administration reported an increase of 4,515 families receiving relief in December over t h e previous month. There were 21, 703 cases in December compared with 17,188 in November. The administration attributed this 26 per cent increase to seasonal needs and the fact that no new assignments were made to WPA projects. Includes 98 Counties. The report included 98 of Iowa's !)9 counties. Polk county had 2,675 cases, the largest on the list.
