PRITCHARD --"There are Larger Needs" the dispersion of the forces to more and more combat zones and outlying stations necessitated Red Cross service at many more locations." Viewed as a total, Mr. Pritchard emphasized, the Red Cross goal seems large, but if it is considered in relation to the number of men now in the armed forces he said it represents "a very modest sum for Red Cross service for a full year." "We are confident^' he added, "that the people of Cerro Gordo county and of all America will respond generously to this appeal and provide the resources necessary for the continuance of the activities which the army and navy have requested the Red Cross to render on behalf of the men in the armed forces and their 'families." The following statement, Mr. Pritchard said, shows by the main divisions of the program the funds required to be raised in the campaign of March, 1944, for the operations of the Red Cross for the year March 1, 1944, to Feb. 28, 1945. -Approximately 90 per cent of the total funds of $200,000,000 will be devoted to activities directly connected with, or a necessary part of, Red Cross service ^nd assistance to the armed forces. In the following tabulations the first 9 items show activities wholly for the armed forces. Most of the other activities are, in large part, for the armed forces or necessary for the conduct of those services. Red Cross service in arrny and street into a youth center at which dancing, games and refreshments would be available at lowest cost and under appropriate rules. Under the plan as presented by Dr. Starr, member of a special Lions club committee studying the youth problem for several months, the old library would be repaired and altered with a view to making it most suitable for the new use. Fullest co-operation" with all other interested individuals and agencies would be invited under the plan explained by Dr. Starr and other members of the special committee, which included Dr. M. D. McMichael, chairman, W. H. Rees, Otto Satler, the Rev. A. N. Rogness and Richard E. Romey. While unanimous approval was given to the general idea by rising vote of the club, final action on the assumption of underwriting responsibility was deferred until next week for further study and consideration: i Ail members of the club were asked to attend a high school P. T. A. meeting Thursday night at which J. L. Dalton, head of the F. B. T. for Iowa, was to be the principal speaker. His counsel on specific approaches to the problem was to be sought. A fundamental in conducting such a youth center, based on experience in numerous other communities where the plan has been operated successfully, lies in giving boys and girls the fullest possible measure of responsibility. In laying the groundwork here, there has been consultation with representatives from the high school student body, the city council, P. T. A. representatives and many others -with a known interest in the 'subject. "There is no thought," said Mr. Satter, "that this youth center will in any sense take the place of home influence or parental discipline. What we have in mind is a place where boys and girls can get together on appointed evenings for 2 or 3 hours of clean, healthful recreation." Dr. Starr in his presentation identified himself as one who doesn't believe there are many essentially bad boys or girls. Most o£ them who end up in penal institutions could be saved by bettered invironment and influences in their formative years. Nor would he accept" the" thesis that our youth of today is more disposed to delinquency than the youth of other generations, including his own. Certain changes in the American, pattern of life. If a.plan proposed by the Lions club is carried out, the old Mason City library building, which has been vacant 4 years, will be converted into a youth center with provisions for dancing, games and refreshments. 2 SCHOOLS GET TONS WASTE PAPER IN DRIVE Money to Be Used for Red Cross, Christmas 1 Cheer, Other Activities For an example ol what the school children are doing in collection of waste paper let's take- a look at the Monroe and Washington schools, of which Miss Emma Behm is principal. In their first of a series of weekly collections the boys and girls, in co-operation with (heir teachers and principal, gathered Z 1 /tons. Magazines, newspaper, cardboard and waste paper was included in the collection. Washington brought in 2,569 pounds and Monroe, 2,789 pounds. The combined collection brought 540.65, which is to be placed in what will be known as the Monroe-Washington waste paper fund Money in this fund will be used for such causes as the Red Cross, children's club work, Christmas Sheer fund and other activities that may come to.the attention of After Operation in 1943-- -»" ----Polio Victim 36 Years Walks Without Brace It costs money to fight infantile paralysis--but the expenditura yields remarkable results. This became evident in the 1943 outbreak o£ the disease, which was the first in 12 years. Almost 12,000 persqns--men, womena and children -- w e r e stricken with infantile paralysis last year. It costs about $1,800 to give a year's care and the Kenny treatment to one patient. Fortunately all didn't require a year's treatment, but the total cost reached a high figure. 1 The returns on this expenditure, however, were phenomenal beginning with the last World war and accelerated by the present war, have created , added problems and temptations for youth. "I would not, however," he- added, "want to be understood as suggesting that the things we are proposing at this time is any passing fad. To the contrary. I think that the need existent today will in all probability become greater rather than less after this war. "It might be, of course, that what we're*suggesting would have to be set down as a *noble experiment' after 6 months or a year. But I think it's a great deal more likely that we'd be entering an important long range program." BANCO DEPOSITS AT DEC. 31 HIGH Net Income at Peak for Last 12 Years The 1943 annual report of Northwest Bancorporation and affiliated banks and companies was released Thursday by J. C. Thomson, president. Combined deposits of affiliated banks including the First National of Mason City, as of Dec. 31 1943, were $912,808,532, which i: higher than for any previous yearend. On a comparable basis, the consolidated net income of the holding company and its affiliates o£ $3,432,226, equal to $2.21 per share, was not only higher than for 1942 which was $1.61 per share, but for any year since 1931. As .the result' of retention of a larger aggregate amount of earnings by affiliated banks, the income of the holding company decreased from $1,113,280, equal to 72 cents per share, in 1942 to $962,333, or 62 cents per share, in 1943. Two dividends of 25 cents each were paid in 1943, similar to amounts which were paid in 1942. Total capital and surplus of Northwest Bancorppration increased from $41,593,011 as of Bee. 31, 1942 to $44,261,090 as of Dec. 31, 1943, the latter being equal to $28.52 per share, as against $26.80 per share at the end of 1942.

As this project got under way so successfully expressions of appreciation went to Miss Rehm, the teachers of the schools and the janitors .for their excellent cooperation. in relief from suffering, in warding off lifelong crippling. And even in Cerro Gordo county, which has been relatively free from the disease so far, but must be on the lookout for the future, funds have been expended with most satisfying: results. That is why the campaign now under way to raise additional funds is so important. A. J. Thompson, assistant secretary of the local chapter!of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, Thursday pointed out that the principal expenditures of the chapter in 1943 were for hospitalization and corrective operations in cases of long standing. The outstanding case of the year financed by the local chapter was that of Mrs. Albert De Marls, the wife of a Jacob E. Decker and Sons ''employe, residing at 210 14th N. E., Mason Every story should have a ending: and it will for such as these if ample funds are raised in the current campaign conducted by the Cerro Gordo chapter and other units of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis.

ALIJGATOR ON PORCH New Orleans, (U.R)--James S. The U. S. public health service advocates control of tuberculosis by mass X-ray tests of war workers and their families. dren, the youngest being twins born just 2 months before she entered the hospital lor treatment, was stricken with infantile pay ralysis 36 years ago, resulting in a badly crippled left leg, on which 'she never afterwards walked without a brace. The brace used through her adult years was a heavy, cumbersome iron a f f a i r which was not inly ill-fitting and consequently painful but actually dangerous to her health. This woman was sent by the local chapter to The University hospital at Iowa City for the purpose of procuring a well-fitted, camfort- rocuring a well-fitted, comfort- ible brace, but after an examina- ion by the hospital doctors she was advised that they could perform an operation on the knee which they believed would eliminate the need for a brace. The local chapter agreed to finance such an operation and i was performed at once--in August, 1943. After the operation he: lower body and effected leg wa placed in a cast and she was re turned home in an ambulance. On subsequent trips to the hospita several of which had to be mad in an ambulance on account of th cast on her b o d y , checkup seemed to indicate that the opera tion was successful, On her last trip back to th hospital a few days ago the cas ret time in 36 years she could alk on this leg. without a sup- ort, although she was advised to ssist herself with crutches until er ankle became strong enough o support her full weight. It seems apparent that Mrs. De ·Taris will walk without any sup- ort whatever. She will probably ave to return to the hospital at bout 2 month intervals for the ext 6 months for observation, or which the chapter will pro- ide transportation. Up to date the total cost to the hapter in this case has been less han $300 and it was suggested by Mr. Thomson that if the generous people of our county who provided the funds through cam- jaigns in previous years, which made this assistance possible could see the benefits to this wife- and mother from the expenditure of this modest amount they would lave convincing proof of the real value of their support of this most worthy cause. This would be true' not for one year only but every year as similar cases will arise each year if the reserve funds are available to care for them, as well as giving first and immediate aid, which is so vital, to new cases through the 2 nurses now available in the county, trained in the Kenny method of hot applications, which training was sponsored by the local chapter.
