John Gwynne of Waterloo declared in a talk Wednesday noon before the JIason City Lions club. "If congress and the administration, he said, would take the position that there must be no strikes in wartime I am very sure that the country would back up the government. If we can send our boys into the foxholes for S50 a month, surely we can make some demands on those who serve on the homefront." The Connally anti-strike measure, passed over presidential veto, has not been adequate, be said. For one thine it does not apply to tbe railroad situation. Talking at some length on the subsidy question, the congressman reached the conclusion that for a number o£ reasons subsidies do not constitute the best wa'y to roll back prices or prevent inflation. cago to -.address Chamber of merce-Servic* club~luncheon at Hanford.

Often these rules and regulations arc as different from the law as a chicken coop is different from a garage." "Bureaus have u way of lingering on long after the emergencj is past which led to their creation When one bureau is wiped out, it people merely move over into an other bureau."The only way to deal with this menace to free government is to deny them the funds with which to operate." While advocating the traditional A subsidy to encourage produc- | American generosity in dealing tion of some war essential, such as 1 lv u n o iher nations, especially those copper, hemp or soybeans, is something quite different from the consumer subsidy. The incentive subsidy is justifiable as a war measure but the consumer subsidy is of doubtful effectiveness, he said. While it is claimed that subsidy multiplies 10-fold in its effectiveness in holding down prices, he observed, there is more evidence that only a small fraction of the government appropriation c o m e s back to the consumer as a benefit. In a complete subsidy program a total of 5 billion dollars would be called for. This, he held,'would be added to the national debt and be made a charge against the next generation, including the men who are fighting this war. Many competent economists will tell you that subsidies in themselves are infla- ; tionary. Mr. Gwynne said he had favored the Bernard Baruch plan of action under which authority for the whole field affected by subsidies would be placed in one able man. Divided responsibility has led to chaos, he insisted. "When Chester Davis was given his .lob at Washington, I was very much pleased," he asserted. "But it developed that he hadn't been given the proper authority. He Heads Bond Campaign Joy Ridgeway Johnson has been named chairman of the women's division o£ the Cerro Gordo county war finance committee, it was announced Thursday. Her appointment was made by the state committee in connection with the 4th war loan drive. The 4th war loan drive will be from Jan. 18 to Feb. 15 throughout the nation. It was stated, however, that all purchases of series E, F and G war bonds for the entire month of January will be credited against the quota. The Cerro Gordo county quota has not yet been announced but is expected to be almost as large as that for the 3rd war loan campaign last September and the quota of individual purchases ia considerably higher.

Mr. Gwynne called for an intelligent scrutiny of lend-Iease and other expenditures. 'We don't want to be an international Santa Claus," he observed. "You don't make friends by lending money or being a sap." In answer to a question by a listener, Mr. Gwynne expressed a doubt' whether the tax bill from this congress would contain the federal sales levy which he favors "Is this because the think it wouldn't be HIS STORY AND PICTURE, IN SCOUT MAGAZINE -- This and 5 other pictures of Gilbert Bovard, Mason City Boy Scout, have received nationwide distribution by appearing in 2 recent issues of The Lone Scout, official magazine for rural scouts, published in New York.

" He is visiting his parents here. saw that he couldn't do the job cut out for him under the existing setup and he quit." The best course for the government in holding down prices and stemming inflation, according to the Waterloo lawmaker, is to cut down on government expenses--as distinguis hed fronv war expenses --through the medium of eliminating bureaucracy and in dipping into the country's spendable surplus for taxation to meet the costs of war currently as far as possible From now on, he said, the rule of production economy must b to produce as much as possible to meet domestic needs and to ac cept our nation's fair share in to feed a war starvec world after the war is won. Objections to the administra lion's plan of extending the vot to men in service were twofold, h said. First, its constitutionalit was doubted by many. (In thi he himself dissented). Second, denied those in uniform the righ to vote on local candidates. Under the contemplated plan popular?" he was asked. "I'd rather not answer that one." he said--and smiled. There is a division in congress, Mr. Gwynne pointed out, but it isn't on a partisan basis. It's be- veen people who believe in one pe of government and those who elieve in another. "And," he added, "It won't end ntil one side licks the other." Music for the program took the arm of an artistically played alto orn solo by Jim Cheyne of Ann rbor, Mich., with K. N. Hager at he piano. Mr. Gwynne was introduced by lussell Girton as program chair- an. Leo Davey presided. Guests ncluded Carl A. Rice, assistant .anager of the local hemp plant, laj.

Bovard started in scouting as a Cub .and worked his way up through the ranks-of cubbing and scouting and emerged as an eagle scout last summer, according to Earle K.

Earl Hall, managing editor of the Mason City Globe- azette. has been postponed fron Jan. 10 to Jan. 17, it was announced Thursday.

It was the opinion of th peaker that training in ethic nd in morals should take place the homes and should by all means start before boys and girls of high school age so that · the time they are in high chool they not only know the iffercnce between right and vrone, but also have the moral tamina and strength to avoid the vrong. Delinquencies, she said, are no especter of persons. They are ound in the homes of the higher conomic levels, as well as among he poor, she said.
