ACTIVITIES OF HI TRI AIRED Charleen Horn on KGLO With Outline of Purpose, Work "As. a Hi-Tri girl I will try to face life squarely, to find and give the best and to serve others." This, it was explained by Miss Charleen Horn on the North Iowa Forum over KGLO Sunday evening, is the vow taken by every girl before she becomes a member of Hi-Tri. Alter explaining that Hi-Tri is a Y. W. C. A. club for girls of high school age, with a membership of approximately 350,000 in this country, the secretary told how the name of the society is an abbreviation for high triangle, its symbol being the blue triangle whose three sides represent body, mind and spirit.

"At present," she said, "members are preparing entries for our annual hobby show to be held March 21-25. This hobby show is regarded as one of the Y's finest works."

Transaction Taxes Not New, Says Pastor in Townsend Address "Transactions taxes are not new in the United States for as early as 1780 the system was in controversy and they have prevailed in degrees ever since," declared the. Rev. C. E. Riddington, at the Y. M. C. A. banquet room Sunday, speaking in the interest o£ the Townsend recovery movement. The disturbance known as Shay's Rebellion, he said, was an outgrowth of such a controversy. "Transactions taxes are not revolutionary, neither are they new," he said. "If the idea of pensions is wrong, let's do away with all of such grants. I£ the idea is right and just for some who have served well, why not right and just for all who have served their community well? If a pension is good for letter carriers, why isn't it good for the stamp clerk who sold the postage stamp on the letter. Too. often the man with a good job is pensioned, while the uncertain jobs are forgotten. If there is any virtue in pensions, make them universal. "Let's foster and develop our home market Potentially there's plenty of it. The only need is buying ability. Production at full capacity . lowers prices and reduces costs at half capacity, production costs go up." Music was furnished by a local orchestra made up of Herbert Wright, Al DeMaris, violin, banjo and harmonica, Genevieve Wright, guitar, and Audrey DeMaris, soprano voice.

Reeves, 67, manager o£ the Minneapolis office of the Mason City Brick and Tile company, died at his home at Minneapolis Sunday afternoon, from heart disease,, following an illness of several weeks. Mr. Reeves had" spent many y e a r s in the c l a y industry betore becoming associated with the Mason City Brick and Tile company in 1923. As an officer and part owner of the Streeter Drain Tile company Streeter, 111., he had become widely known in the industry. From 1926 u n t i l 1928, Mr. Reeves was manager o£ the Minneapolis office of the Mason City Brick and Tile company, but at that iime he moved to California and engaged in a business venture of his own. In 1933 he returned to Minneapolis and resumed his position with the Mason City company. He was widely known in the building industry of the mid-west and had been in Mason City many times. Surviving Mr. Reeves are his wife, Cordelia, and daughter, Mrs. Zelda Riley. and granddaughter, Billie Jean Riley, Joliet, IlL Funeral services have not been arranged. "An adequate defense is insurance against belligerent nations," declared Dr. G. E. Harrison, Mason City, captain of a medical reserve corp, in his talk on national defense "at the regular luncheon meeting of the Mason City Rotary club. Pointing out that . the TJriite'd States ranks twentieth in the world armed strength, the speaker explained that S w i t z e r l a n d , Greece and Argentina have more military power than this country. Dr. Harrison asserted that the United States rated forty-third in the percentage of population under arms while the United States has .36 per cent. Cost Is 55.08 Excluding the navy, the medical captain pointed out, the military cost of the United States is $5.08 a person yearly which equals four cigarets a person daily. He compared this fact with other countries' cost by explaining that Italy spends $13.88 a person and France $33.59. Touching upon the military history of the United State.s, Dr. Harrison pointed out that our nation has been the aggressor in every war it has fought. He qualified this statement by revealing the United States invaded Mexico and Cuba, the north marched into the south in the Civil war and troops ousted the Indians from their territory. Another outstanding point was revealed by Dr. Harrison in the fact that the United States has never fought a first class nation on an equal basis. He explained that the nearest the United States came to it was when she fought England in the Revolutionary war but even then England was busy with wars in Europe and could not sent sufficient troops to quell the revolt.
