MATERIALS AND PRODUCTION ARE ON ALLIED SIDE Rotarians Hear Dollar Cost Staggering, But Cheap for End Gained "Do we have what it takes to win this war?" Rilea W. Doe of Oakland, Cal., vice chairman of the committee on "relief to war affected Rotarians, told Rotarians of Mason City Monday noon at the Hotel Hanford that the average American has what it takes, but added that it is "very poor timing to be criticizing things of which we know nothing." 'Total \rtclory in the shortest possible time regardless of the dollar value is what we want," said Mr. Doe. "Do we have what it takes to pay the price for liberty or democracy, or whatever you want to call our way of living? I say we do!" "Doubters and wallers who are pointing their fingers, either from ignorance or from deliberate intent, are sabotaging our needed unity of thought and faith in our objectives. They are doing a lot to tear down the thing called national morale, which is hard to build, but easy to destroy," said Mr. Doe. "We have the materials, the productive capacity and the determined man-power to do the job, so I invite you to join our team of 130,000,000 All Americans in this rocking, socking game of vindication. "The experts say that this is a war of materials and productive capacity--not just a conflict of armed forces. There will be many lives lost but the cost of each fatality is staggering. "In the time of Julius Caesar it cost 75 cents to kill a man; during the 30 years war in the 17th century, $50; during the Civil war, 85,000; during World War I, $25,000; and in the present war S125.000.

Phone 93 should convince us that the present war is too expensive to be quibbling about military maneuvers or military leadership. If we lose only money and not something far more precious, so far as I am concerned, the dollar cost will be cheap." Mr. Roe briefly sketched the progress of the United States in the war to the present day when it is producing a fighting plane every 10 minutes, a 10,000 ton tanker every 10 days, a fighting ship every- 36 hours. "Let's give back the army to the generals, and the navy to the admirals and apply our talents to our own business and lay off the things we know nothing about. . . . Those boys out there are helpless without your toil and sweat and confidence. "Let's quit complaining about trivial things. Let us at home deliver the same measure of unselfish service that we expect of those at the front. Don't be too busy to work on the bond drive or the salvage drives. Let's all double our efforts. We dare not say, I'm too tired, loo busy or too shorthanded. The boys in uniform have to perform anyway, no matter how tired they are. Can we do less?" 'Mr. Roe was introduced to the group by Lee P. Loomis, program chairman for the month. Ward R. Hamilton presided in the absence of Father C. Burnett Whitehead, president of the club.

JUNIOR CHAMBER WEEK OBSERVED IN MASON CITY Services of Young Men's Organization Outlined by President Junior Chambers of Commerce exist to give civic service and to train their members for leadership. The many thousands of members of the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce, svhich is the only national organization composed exclusively of young men, has pledged itself to building a greater America. This statement was made by Bob Dull, president of the local Junior Chamber of Commerce, on the KGLO Forum Monday evening. This week is being observed nationally as "Junior Chamber of Commerce Week." The high point of the week will be the presentation of a distinguished service award key, at a Founder's day banquet Tuesday night, to the young man of this community, between the ages of 21 and 35, who has given the most outstanding contribution to the community in the past year. Similiar presentation are being made by Junior Chambers of Commerce throughout the nation. Mr. Dull jointed out that the Mason City Junior Chamber was organized and chartered in 1930. The presidents during this period have been: George Wolf, Charles Cornwell, Bob Finlayson, Dr. Don FiizGerald, Leo Sweesy, Bob Stoyles, Fred Wagner, Jay Tubbesing, Don Wicder, Dr. Harold Morgan, Paul McAuley, Allen Patton, Eddie Jones and Roger Lyons. "The member of the Junior Chamber, representing e v e r y walk of life, have joined together to build a greater community, state and nation. Though often considered a business organization, it is more than that. It is primarily devoted to th^ community itself; regardless of whether civic improvement is the result of projects emphasizing business, public health, safety, or the prosecution of the war effort to its fullest efficiency," Mr. Dull said. Stating that time did not permit him to review the entire activity of the local organization, Mr. Dull did point out that it has been instrumental in promoting scrap metal and rubber salvage drives, as well as collecting over 200 old radios for the army air force technical school at Sioux Falls, S. Dak. "We have always assisted in arranging the Navy day parade and also the annual Band Festival parade, which we hope will be contined again after the war," the local president declared. He also pointed out that the local group sponsored the first mass enlistment of WAVES and SPARS in the United States, which was held on March 19, 1943. Each year the organization plays host at one of its dinners to the young farmers of this com- Imunity in an effort to understand their problems and become better acquainted. It was pointed out that the Junior Chamber has 99 members in the service and Christmas cards were sent to each one by the service men's welfare committee, directed by Bob Cahalan. "Here is an organization of young men with with a common desire to succeed in their respective fields and in their efforts to effect greater contributions to the community and national welfare. Ideas and programs tried in one community are offered as helpful suggestions and exchanged to the mutual benefit of every member of the community," Mr. Dull said. Shown above is Lawrence Szymeczek in his grocery store at 940 North Tyler avenue. He is the father of the 3 boys, pictured below, who are in the service.
