'What shall we do after all our enemies are beaten; shall we then actively hate each other as we'll be at liberty to do?" That was the question asked by D. Graham Hutton, director jof the Chicago office of the British Press service, at a joint meeting of the Mason City Chamber of Commerce and Rotary, Lions and Kiwanis clubs Wednesday noon. His answer was: "If we were kicked together to win the war, we must stick together to preserve the peace or the scientific progress during the next 5 to 10 years will make it possible for another war to wipe civilization off the globe." There must be a general- agreement on plans for international co-operation after this war, the British journalist declared. There is no need for unemployment and trade restrictions to bar the way to peace and prosperity, he insisted. Mr. Hutton advised against dismembering of Germany after the war. "Give the German people some kind of prosperity and they won't be so adventurous; they won't be so anxious to follow some Austrian paperhanger over a cliff." But he was emphatic that some security plans must be made. We may win the war in Europe during 1944, he suggested, and must then have a plan so that no paperhanger can immediately begin planning again against our way of life. He met headon the criticism oi England resulting from the report that 73 per cent of the invasion force is to be Americans. "There's a reason behind all these things so easily criticized," he declared Of the 17 million men in England, 2,000,000 are in the air force he 'continued, and 3,000,000 more are overseas in addition to others in the navy. The manpower shortage in England is so severe that boys and girls become subject to labor conscription automatically a the age of 15'X years. "In Britain, 77'i per cent of the boys between 15 and 17 years are engaged in war work and 56 per cent of the girls," he pointed out The British coalition government will be retained at .least 2 years after the war, he forecast, pointing out that because of its more complete mobilization, Great Britain's demobilization problem wil be at least triple ours. In the question period following his address, Mr. Hutton also staler: the opinion that Russia would eventually join the war against Japan just as Turkey would join against Germany. "Some time there's going to be a peace conference," he pointed out, "and Turkey wants to get a ticket to si' at the green table. So does Russia want to sit in at the Far-Eastern peace conference. The British public is 100 per cent in back of Churchill to the end of the war with Japan, he answered another questioner, anc the prime minister is on recorc promising full co-operation in the war until Japan is entirely crushed. "The British people will keep him to that promise if the Americans don't," he added, pointing out that Britain had its Hong Kong and Singapore just as the Unitec States had a Bataan. Rudolf Hess is in the-advanced stages of psycho-neurosis, he reported. "There's nothing interesting to report about Hess; he's jus simply slowly going off his onion.' The British people never mentioned Hess during his visit to England last May and June, he as Low as $1.00 a Week, Credit! Dr. G. F.

Patrick, formerly with KGLO and other stations in Iowa and Illinois, joined the WCBS staff in April, 1942, and left to join the army in December, 1942, where was assigned to the orientation lecture branch ot the signal corps as editor of daily camp news aroadcasts. Discharged in August, 1943, he returned to Springfield and resumed his duties with the station there. He begins his new duties in Chicago Monday (Jan. 17, 1943.) reported, "for the same reason they didn't talk about Irish neutrality. There's nothing to talk about. Every able bodied Irishman is either in the royal air force, the navy or war work already." Asked about Swiss neutrality, pointed out that Switzerland's greatest asset is a combination of tunnels and dynamite. "They say, 'If you want it, come and get it; but It won't be here when you come.'" The railroads through the Swiss mountain tunnels are an .asset to the Germans because they provide the shortest road to Italy and southern France on which to carry supplies, he explained. M. C. Lawson, president, of the Chamber of Commerce, was in charge of the meeting and introduced the presidents of the 3 service clubs. W.

BOARD EXPECTS TO SAVE COST IN 20 YEAR PERIOD Machines to Be Here for Use in Primary Election Next June Voting machines for Cerro ordo county are being pur- Chased by the county board of upervisors, it was announced Thursday. The board has signed \ contract calling for the delivery at 58 machines before April 15 at a cost of $62,fi40. Cerro Gordo county thus becomes the 28th county in the state o become completely equipped vith voting machines, 3 others laving only enough machines to serve part of the voters. There are 1,598 machines in .Iowa, it was revealed. The machines wil! cut the elec- ion personnel in half and no ballots or other printing expense vill be necessary except for the irips on the face of the machine o show the names of the candidates. It is estimated that the machines will save considerably nore than half the county's election expense. "We have paid for the machines at least twice in my lifetime without having their convenience," declared Dick Steinberg, Mason City district member of the board. "I am satistied we can pay for them in 20 years." Election costs for the county in 1942 were $7,288, in 1940, 58,191 and in 1938, $7,950, according to :he county auditor's records. The greatest saving will be in the cost of supplies which amounted k more than half the cost of the 1942 general election, the records show. In addition to cutting out the need for counting boards and thus immediately cutting the election personnel in half, the voting machines also will reduce the number of hours which the remaining clerks and judges will have to work. This will be an additional saving, it was pointed out. Voting machines have been in use in Iowa since 1306 when they were put into use in Iowa City, Johnson county. Franklin county has used them since 1Q08, Polk since 1911, Hardin since 1912, Palo Alto since 1918 and Webster since 1920. One county, Mitchell, used the machines one year on a rental- purchase plan and then turned them back. All other counties in the state who have used them have purchased them and are stil using them, it was stated. Sioux City is the only larger city in Iowa which does not have them. An intensive educational campaign will be carried on throughout the county before the primary election to acquaint the voters with use of the machines. The Automatic Voting Machine company provides an instruction model with every machine and 'wil have representatives here for 30 days before the election to teach their use. Clubs and organizations will be offered the service and demonstrations will be given in all rura precincts, it was stated. Religion Dangerous as Devil, Crane Declares "A Decalogue of Clear Thinking in a Confused Time" was pre. ented by Doctor Henry H. Crane of Detroit, Mich., at the First Wethodist church Wednesday evening as a pattern of 10 points ha lad set up for himself to follow* -- _____ n meeting crucial problems of lie present time. It .was the opening seminar in : series of 4 on the general theme What Price Peace," which is be- ng sponsored by the church hrough the coming weeks, with Doctor Gilbert S. Cox o£ Wa- erloo, speaking on Jan. 26, and Bishop Alexander P. Shaw of Jaltimore, speaking on Feb. 11. )r. Crane was introduced by Doctor Roy C. Helfenstein, pas- or of the First Congregational hurch. Doctor Crane presented his 10 points for clear thinking in a unning account, which held the ttention of his audience through he striking of the courthouse lock and other interruptions vith impromptu humor that had von his crowd of 500 persons rom his first words. The 10 points of Doctor Crane's Decalogue vere: Mrs. Amy Chase Ady Services Held at Local Funeral Home Funeral services lor Mrs. Am Chase Ady, 80, who died at the home of her son, 817 Pennsylvania N.

Thou shalt purge thyself of all prejudice. 2. Thou shalt recognize and esist propaganda. S.Thou shalt refuse to rationalize. 4. Thou shalt eschew alt ex- lediency. 5. Thou shalt define ambiguous and controversial terms. 6 Thou shalt strive to get all points of view. 7. Thou shalt learn to endure he agony of suspended judgment. S.Thou shalt act on the preponderance of probability. 9. Thou shalt avail thyself of he efficacy of faith. 10. Thou shall rely upon love as the first and final aid. The first 3 of the commandments Doctor Crane said were the lardest to understand and make use ot and yet were among the most important. "All of us are filled with prejudice, little twists ot mind, which degrades and messes up our behavior in general," said Doctor 'rane. "Prejudice in any idea hat so forces one to a degree that he resents or resists any criticism or 'investigation of it. "Religion," Doctor Crane said, 'is one of the most annoying sublets of all bound up in prejudice. It is dangerous as the devil. There s not a wicked thing in the whole world but what is sanctioned or Blessed somewhere by religion. War itself is the climax of social evils and yet there is hardly place in the world but what there are plenty of clergymen blessing; the damned thing." Other subjects Doctor Crane said people were prejudiced in were economic issues, nationalism and racial prejudice, the latter the most deplorable of all since it can be easily "whipped and fannec into homicide." Propaganda, according to Doctor Crane, is the antithesis of education. The propagandist invades the personality of another and becomes functional ,in him to the point where he can be manipulated by the ideas the propagandist gives him. Methods used by the propa- [andist include the fixation of an idea by repetition, over simplification, appeal to prejudice, distortion of facts and coercion, according to Doctor Crane. He illustrated his points with many examples. One of the most dangerous things for the person to do is to try to rationalize. Self deception will numb the power of one to discern right from wrong, according to Doctor Crane.

M. C. A., a participating service of the National War Fund, includes thousands of pairs of boxing gloves in the hundreds of tons of materials shipped to camps, to implement its program of education, recreation, religion and va- cational training. Among prisoner-boxers are former luminaries of the ring, and these men play a leading role in the camps' boxing programs. Sometimes the results are interesting and unforeseen: In a British r there is a famous Scottish ligmV weight boxer. Everyone wanted to put on the gloves at least once \vith this hero of the squared circle, usually to find that he faced something like a shadow when he tried to hit it, and like a battering ram when it hit him. At length, the German leader of the detachment asked rather diffidently if he might try. The result was a display of fistic fireworks that will live in the memories of those present. When the bout ended, it developed that the German had been an equally famous lightweight boxer in his own land. Since then, the Scottish prisoner and the German leader have held a series of dazzling bouts, packed with good- natured mayhem, to the delight and edification of the detachment; Plymouth--Mrs. Kate Chehock had as her weekend guests her brother, Lurton Gottlieb, of Wisconsin, and her children, Mrs. Charles Willey, Virgil and Leland Chehock of Mason City, and Mrs. Mae Peshas, a sister of Kate and Lurton Gottlieb, all formerly of Plymouth. i A Treat for Mason Cityans SACRED CONCERT PRESENTING Haldor Lilienas World's Greatest Living Gospel Song Writer.
