\ 4 Thursday. Jan. 27, 1944 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE ITS NO LONGER A NECESSITY TO HAVE POOR-COX Peace on Economic front Big Need, Says Waterloo Minister "We must cease fighting each other on the economic front and turn our attention to doing what is necessary to produce things and distribute them to the people who need them, both on the national arid international scene, if we are to create in the years ahead a just and enduring peace," Doctor Gilbert S. Cox of Waterloo told an audience at the First Methodist church Wednesday evening in the 2nd o£ a series .ot^forums sponsored by the church. His subject was "1ie Economic Costs of Peace" and he explained some of the economic ills out of which wars and misunderstandings come,.drawing on his experience -in Germany at the time its economic structure went to pieces in 1923 sufficiently to remind -his audience what happens to a nation when such a catastrophe occurs..' \"Min ' does not live by bread alttne," said Doctor Cox, "but man must have bread to have peace. We must provide that bread, (or there oughtn't to be in a world of justice Patajonians who 'haven't enough to eat. We must remem- * ber that the old economic order was the seedbed out of which this war came. "Even though we deny the thesis of the 'have not nations,' ev- efy one began-its downfall [at the point of economic struggle, Mussolini came into power in Rome at ah economic breakdown; Hitler rose to power in Germany in an economic breakdown." Doctor Cox said that it was almost impossible to extract emotion out of such words as "communism" and "socialism," which he termed "fighting words," but asked his audience to look at the facts and fit the'economic life of the future with the facts of a new economic day. "Most everyone is persuaded "now," said Doctor Cox, "that there Is no longer any necessity for people beta? poor. In America we have the raw materials, and the skills, io make all of the fundamental things that we all need. No one in America needs to be a pauper. No one anywhere needs to be impoverished." / Wealth is no longer measured in terms of money, according to Doctor Cox, but rather in raw materials, and skill. "If we have the coal, the oil, the corn, the'workers and the factories and mills and have .every one working-and distributing to .them'the products dl , their work," we can get along pretty well without so much money," he said. "If the 40 million in the armed forces and production effort suddenly find themselves facing another, depression, they will do things, that perhaps we wish they wouldn't. For they will say, 'You can put everyone to work in war --"Why can't you do it in peace?' " Doctor Cox said that the church had lone questioned 'the morality of the old economic order. He pointed out the 70 million people . who belong to co-operatives in an effort to find some other way of distribution so that the producers will share more .than under the old order. Along this line of thought he \ suggested several directions to change to if the world is to have peace following this war. "We will not make peace when the war is over; we will merely begin making peace, but maybe we will set up an order which will adjust any disorders so as to avoid war or breakdown," said Doctor Cox. - Points which he enumerated in setting up the new order were: 1. Reorganlztaion of the whole system of international exchange of goods. 2. Mutual agreement that the higHways, airways and waterways must be kept under control at an international order. 3. There must be no more reckless tampering with the values of currency within nations. 4. There must be between nations some guaranteed security so that money may flow in investments between nations. 5. The scramble for raw materials must cease. "In. war we are pooling our resources," said Doctor Cox. "If we are to have peace, we must move from the anarchy of our present individualists to more responsible collectivism. We need collective VETERAN--Dancer Inna Gest of the films holds Malihki, a cat found floating in 'a bucket by a naval officer during the battle for Gaudalcanal. Malinki means "little one." HAUL NAZIS ON MOTORCYCLES British Bring Back Prisoners in Italy By REYNOLDS PACKARD With the 5th Army South of Rome. (U.P.)--From the British front I cou.ld see action along the entire pancake beachhead, which sicemed in flames and smoke as artillery and tanks-of both sides engaged in battle, with the Germans bringing up reinforcements of tanks, artillery and infantry. One of the oddest sights was British motorcyclists taking German prisoners to the rear on the back seats of motorcycles. Most of the Germans were smiling. William H. Stoneman, correspondent for the Chicago Daily News, who was with me, said as we watched shells landing: "It looks as though we could just be walking around the bend in that road, go into Home and take over our old apartments. It's 20 miles from here, against 80 or 90 from Cassino." ' " _, ' Although we could see very Tittle of the tank battle itself, .we could hear terrific machine gunning and tank gun fire only three- quarters of, a mile away while ambulances sped past us bearing the wounded to the rear. Several jeeps which had been peppered with shrapnel dashed to - . . » Lynches Hear From Son in the Pacific; Was at Bougainville Mr. and Mrs. William J. Lynch, Winnebago Heights, route 4, have had word from their son, Pfc. William Willis Lynch, who had not been heard from for some time, that he had taken part in the invasion of Bougainville. Considering what ha"d happened there, he was thankful to get out with a whole skin, he had written. Pfc. Lynch is with the marines and before entering the service from Madison, Wis', in Sept., 1942, was employed in a defense plant there and later-as a taxi driver. He took training at Camp Pendleton, Cal. Oscar Edward Lynch, another son of the Lynches, is in training with the seabees at Ca'mp Peary, Va. He was employed at Madison, Wis., as a butcher before entering the service in Oct., 1943. His wife, f o r me r 1 y Dorothy Knowles of Madison, lives there. the rear, their perforated smoking and burning. tires action in the matter of employment. If h private industry cannot furnish'it, we've got to furnish it collectively. We must move from emphasis upon.wealth to emphasis on welfare. We must spread the social services. We must move from the direction of emphasis on production to planned consumption. "The measure of prosperity and peace at home is not what we produce, but whether we are producing the things people need for a good life,"' said Doctor Cox. German planes were most active at, the front as soon as the weather cleared this morning. Hail stones as large as marbles filled many a slit trench and compelled doughboys and tommies to dig new ones or bail out the old with, their helmets.

TINY BABY TAKEN HOME . Weighed Only 1 Lb., 12 Ounces at Birth Fort Dodge, (^-Judith Kay Martin, the premature baby which weighed 1 pound 12 ounces at birth in Livermore Oct. 12, left St. Joseph's Mercy hospital Thursday, weighing 6 pounds 14 ounces and at a state of development where the care given an average month old child 'will how suffice, according to Dr. AV. R. Beardsley ot Livermore, the attending · physician. The children's bureau of the U. S. department of lab'or lists the mortality of a child of less than 2.2 pounds at SD to 100 per cent. Judith of course had far less than the 15 chances in 100 apparently given a child of 2.2- pounds. She was smaller than any of the Dione quintuplets. The night of her birth Dr. Bearsley placed Judith Kay i n - a basket and rushed her the 35 miles from Livermore to Fort Dodge in a car. She was placed in an-incubator with 1 oxygen and remained there until about Christmas time. She was tube fed, first wholly and then partly, until mid December. . 'She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jess Martin, both 32, of Livermore. The father was a farm laborer before his enlistment in the navy Dec. 28. MARS RETURNS FROM HONOLULU Giant Plane Sets New Record for Total Cargo Alameda, Cal., (U.R)--The giant Mars, world's largest operating airplane, set new records for total cargo carried and economic operation on its experimental round trip flight to Honolulu; Lt. Cmdr. VV. E. Coney, the -pilot, said Thursday. The Mars landed here Wednesday night, with 8 passengers and 17 crew members and more than 20,500 pounds of cargo. "She - b e h a v e d beautifully," Coney said. "The gasoline consumption was most economical. I think we can do a lot of good carrying cargoes for the Pacific war." The Mars has a 200-foot wingspread and has been described as "as big as a 35-room house."'It is powered by 4'Wright cyclone engines. The/ plane required 15 hours, 9 minutes for the 2,350-mile trip to Honolulu and 12 hours, 7 minutes to return. This is slightly faster than the time required by clipper planes. Exact range and speed of the Mars is a navy secret, but officials have said it could fly from Midway to Japan and back without refueling. Coney said no. mechanical trouble was encountered. Passengers on the plane, including Commander Gene Tunney, former heavyweight boxing champion, reported slrght vibration from the gigantic engines.
