Ryan Killed in Airplane Crash in South Father Gets Telephone Call Here That Son Died at Birmingham Town Owes No One Wenham, Mass., (U.R)--As a fit- Ijting part of the celebration of the J300th anniversary of its incorpora- Btion, the town of Wenham an- ftnounces a surplus of $G4,OOQ in jits treasury, with all bills paid land no indebtedness on its books. the local service clubs and the Junior Chamber for the award. The Rev. A. N. Rogness, pastor of the Trinity Lutheran church, in speaking on "The Basic Attitude in the Peace," said that there are those who have the pessimistic view of the war and the peace to follow, that being that everything is going to pot, and that there are those who' have the optimistic view that everything will come out all right. Neither of these extremes, he said, will provide a solution to the problems of peace, although he was inclined to give more support to the pessimists, for they admit that something must be done to insure the peace. The world must, Mr. Hogness continued, nttain these 3 things: 1. Peace when the war is over. It is always easier for a man to fight than it is to make the peace after the batlle is over. We must not overlook but look forward to making the peace when this great war is over. 2. We must have a sense of moral indignation. This we partly attained after Fearl Harbor, but if a democracy is to exist it must exist over a people who have sense of justice, integrity, honesty and fair play. 3. God must enter the picture. People must have a profound respect for God. This democracy would not have been launched by its founders if they had not had a. profound confidence in God. Charles Cornwell spoke briefly on the 4th war loan drive and its meaning to the people of the country as well as to the boys on the field of battle. Francis Darland, co-chairman of the cigarcts for servicemen campaign, staled that to date the Junior Chamber has sent over D. P. Ryan, 523 1st S. \V., received a long distance call from headquarters at Birmingham, Ala., saying that his son, Sgt. Dennis "Dick" P. Ryan, was killed in an airplane crash there Tuesday. The message said_ that the body was being shipped to Mason City and that Mr. Ryan would be notified as to the time of its arrival us soon as it was possible to do so. No details of the crash were given. Sgt. Ryan was stationed at Will R o g e r s field, Oklahoma City, Okla., but was sent to different centers to teach radio to personnel on bomber planes. His last assignment had been to Birmingham. A letter was received 'from him here a few days ago, written from Will Rogers field, in which he stated that his pilot was ill and^ they weren't doing much flying. He said" that consequently things were rather dull at the field. Sgt. Ryan was a radio gunner with the army air force and ftcw in a B-17. He was here in November on a 15-day furlough. He has 2 brothers in the service, Sgt. John L. Ryan, Fort Lewis. Wash., and Cpl. Marcus Ryan with the marine corps in Honolulu. Besides these 'L brothers and the father, there arc 5 sisters and 2 SGT. DENNIS T. RYAN other brothers surviving. They are Mrs. Herbert Bender, 502 '2nd S.

W.; Mrs. Eleanor Moorehcad, Chicago; Mrs. Wilbur Hershcy, Oklahoma City, Okla.; James Ryan, Vancouver, Wash., and Leo Ryan, Chicago. The mother died in 1!)25. The body will be brought to the Meyer funeral home here. The board of directors of the Mason City Chamber of Commerce at a meeting Tuesday noon at the Hotel Hanford approved a budget for 1944. The budget, which was submitted by E. W. Clark, provided for a substantial increase in. the item of industrial promotion and publicity in the coming year. M. D. Judd, chairman of the committee on industrial promotion, reported that his committee had been in touch with the hemp situation the -past week, while steps were being taken to cut own the number of operating ants in Iowa for next year to 4.

Loveland, lairman of the Iowa AAA, who ad explained that hemp was to e continued only in the 4 coun- bcst suited for this crop--· ancock, Franklin, Wright and ruudy. If, as now contemplated, the lason City hemp mill is closed fter the present crop has been rocessed, all effort should be made to put the plant into use as soybean mill, corn drying plant r some other use, Mr. Judd ex- gained. Lee Bawdin, Clear Lake, field eprescntative of the war produc- ion board, spoke of the neces- ily for conserving coal.
