KNIinSHN TO s pe ak at TBunco CATC nc fn ---^ ~^~ . ~ I -------Noon Meeting DEAN, KNUDSON T ° *-" «* TO GIVE VIEWS ON LEGISLATION To Discuss Work of Iowa Legislature at Noon Meeting Senator Earl Dean of Cerro Gordo county isn't the legislator he was two years ago. In fact he's something quite different now. In the last general assembly he helped to formulate policies, being of the democrats then in control. As a minority party member now he has a different job. The duty of the minority party in pur governmental setup is to criticize. That's what Senator Dean intends to do but he stipulates that his criticism will be constructive ia so far as he is able to make it that. Those who hear Senator Dean's report at the legislative forum sponsored by .the Chamber ot Commerce at the Hotel Hanford Friday noon won't find him at all a sorehead, however. In fact, he gets something of a chuckle out of his new job. Knudson in Majority On the other hand Herman M. Knudson, Cerro Gordo county representative in the legislature, is part of the strongly entrenched republican plurality upon which is lodged the responsibility of enacting legislation. Representative Knudson will likewise outline his view of the situation at the forum. In-discussing the situation from nis position in the minority party Senator Dean mentioned among 3ther things the teachers pension "Of course I am for the teach- e «'. pension bill," he grinned. Let the republicans worry about* where the money is to come from." KEP. H. M. KNUDSON and holy direction.

Can't Get Them Up legislature rcmsins to be done even though, the vacation this week, which brought the senate*and representative home marks the supposed midpoint of the ses- 1:1 in. The principal reorganization bills haven't been discussed outside of committees. Both Senator Dean and Representative Knudson are expected to have something to say Friday about, those re-organization bills The one nearest the- senator's leart seems to be the bill to take :he highway patrol and motor vehicle department out of the secretary of state's office and consoll- late them in a department under he governor. The big re-organization bill fathered by Dean Peisen, Eldora, majority party whip in the house s too all inclusive, he believes Of Interest to Cities Senator Dean also intends to spend some time Friday noon on he bills which are of particular interest to cities. The one which would provide state funds for maintenance of heavily traveled streets that are not a part of the mmary road system will be of particular interest to Mason City. Its passage would permit the repairing of streets such as Carolina avenue northeast, without assessing the cost against the abutting property. Senator Dean and Representa- :ive Knudson are each expected to speak 13 minutes on "The Iowa Legislative Situation," following which there will be a period for discussion. A like meeting, planned by the -erro Gordo county Bar association for Saturday, has been canceled as members of the bar will join in the chamber meeting Friday. Reservations for the luncheon are to be made until 10 o'clock Triday morning. ·- lowans Oppose Bill * Including Sum for L" Two Dams of TVA WASHINGTON, (ff)_-Iowa re _ publicans in the house voted almost solidly with the minority when that body adopted a senate-house conference report on the independent offices appropriation bill which included $17206,000 for the controversial TVA dams at Gilbertsville and Watts Bar. . Representative Harrington (D.- la.) voted for the proposal and Representative Jacobsen (D -la ) was not listed as voting. Republicans voting against the proposal included lowans Talle Martin, L e C o m p t e , Jensen Gwynne, Gilchrist and Dowell. SCHOOL IS CLOSED _ RUDD--School was not in session Monday because of weather and road conditions. FELLOWSHIP OF PRAYER Daily Lenten Devotional By DR. GA1US G. ATKINS SECOND WEEK--ADVENTURERS WHAT HAVE YOU LEFT? Ye have taken away my gods . .. and the priest, and ye are gone away; and what have I more? Read Judges 18-18-24. Micah's gods were poor, misshapen images, and his priest was at any one's hire, but the loss of hem made him pitifully poor and his lament sounds across the rears. A house may shelter poor jods and our devotion be spent upon so much less than the high- es_t and the holiest, but how empty hie is when its shrines are empty Perhaps that is what is the matter with so many of us and so much of the world: Empty shrines The sense of the divine grows dim, the loyahties and devotions for which only the Eternal is great enough are poured out as water upon the sands. When there is nothing to believe in supremely and serve at any cost, what have ve left? Prayer: Lord of our Heart's elation, save us from the emptiness of life without worship and he futility of action without high TRACES FATE OF CZECHS TO FEAR OF COMMUNISM Father Hradecky Speaks on European Trip Over KGLO Belief that the "tragedy" of Czecho-SIovakia can be traced in its last analysis to the fear entertained by England that a defeated Germany would fall prey to communism, was expressed on the North Iowa Forum over KGLO Wednesday evening by Father W. Hradecky of the Holy Trinity church at Protivin. "Although I myself am of Czech extraction," declared the speaker, "I prefer to witness the tragic dismemberment of Czechoslovakia rather than to have any additional country of Europe become the victim of communism." The pastor based his observations on seven months of travel last summer through various countries of Europe. Didn't Like Regimentation "Turning to Germany," he added, "I must give her credit where credit is due. As an American Czech I have no love for Hitler and his policies, but I must confess that in Germany I found order, discipline, and well organized government. In fact, the government is more stable there than any government established, since the Versailles treaty was signed, "But what I did not like.was the intense regimentation of all economic activities and shocking restrictions of social and religious liberties. When I questioned some Serman citizens as to why they tolerated such dictation of their economic and religious life, I was Siven a very interesting answer: 'We prefer to be regimented economically and to suffer restrictions of our religious liberties rather than be murdered by communists.' " Churches Demolished The Protivin clergyman asserted that when one enters the vast country of Russia, he feels that iie is in an entirely different world, a world filled with suspicion and fear. "The soviet government undertook to transfer. the old Russian empire into an Utopian, Marxistic, paradise of the proletariat. The butchery and brutality with which this program was undertaken, and which is being carried on today, has no equal in the annals of history. "The effect of unheard of cruelties is impressed upon the very soul of the Russian people and will remain there for centuries to 2ome. True, some things have been accomplished that would probably never have been done under the old czaristic regime, but the heart and soul of a great people is being sacrificed. . . . "Churches in the soviet union iave been demolished or 'transformed into store-houses, theaters, museums, and so on.

To Describe Growth Starting with Alexander Graham Bell's invention, Mr. Howorth describes the rapid growth in the use of telephone service carrying his audience graphically through that period when city streets were a mass of telephone wires. He brings out the development of telephone cables, the loading coil, vacuum tubes and.other improvements that have advanced the quality and extent of telephone service. His audience will hear telephone speech scrambled and unscrambled and will be given an easy-to-un- lerstand explanation of how that s done and its part in providing overseas telephone service. The beating of a human heart amplified thousands of times will be heard as well as a demonstration of the artificial larynx. His audience will be able to watch a step- by-step demonstration of how, as a telephone exchange grows, complexity increases as the number of telephone users increase. Mr. Howorth of late has given the demonstration to approximately 45,000 people in cities and towns of Minnesota and has presented it 80 times. move on Feb. 28 were moving on Wednesday.
