CO-OPERATION IN SAFETY URGED Emond Tells of Work in Armour Company Talking pictures produced by Armour and company of Chicago n dealing with safety work mong its drivers, were shown by Edward J. Emond, with the automotive accident prevention casualty department of the company, at the Y. M. C. A. Tuesday evening. Mr. Emond, who was in Mason Jity working with the fleet drivers at the Jacob E. Decker and Sons plant, told managers and drivers that the picture method of education had been found most ·eliable with his' company. He stated that the company bad discarded the 3 Es of safety enforcement, education and engineering) for closer co-operatiou with the drivers^ "You can't expect drivers to be jafe drivers, unless the mechan- cal equipment is right to begin with. Co-operation between the mechanical department and the driver is what we are striving for," said Mr. Emond. He showed first the safety picture originally made by the company and then its 2nd effort entitled "Preventive Maintenance." He said a noticeable gain iad been made in preventing accident, through this method of cooperation. Under the system, according to Mr, Emond, individual records are cept of each driver daily .-^ The driver reports the condition of the truck at tSe end of the run at :he same time he reports the amount of gasoline used. Any repairs needed are taken care of ay the mechanical department before the driver takes his truck out again. If it is not in condition, he :s urged to refuse to take out the truck until it is right · . Many interesting phases of safety work in large companies were presented by Mr. Emond as well as a complete accident reporting form, which those who attended showed much interest in William Dresser, chairman' ot Ihe commercial vehicle committee of the Mason City-Cerro Gordo county safety council, presided.

She and her husband, the late Martin Johnson, were exploring In the Solomons in 1912, she said and found a Japanese tailor a Tulagi who made shirts for Johnson and clothes for her. "He was 'the best tailor wi ever had,'' she -said,- "but wi thought it strange that a simpli tailor should have/ fine camera; and a small sailing boat with : powerful auxiliary motor. ' -''After Pearl Harbor the 2ittl tailor suddenly became Genera Ishimoto who was killed while leading the Japanese forces on Guadalcanal." Wherever they went, the south seas, Africa, orient, or thi United States, the" Japs wen everywhere, she said. Three yeari ago she saw 5 japs - on top o their automobiles photographing the white house and other government buildings. The Pacific war is for from over, she said. Pickups of Magazine, Newspapers Saturday "Only a scrap of paper! 1 ' If everybody hasn't said it, everybody has thought it at one ime or another in the past. But the war has changed all hat, and, according to Edwin S. "riendly, national chairman o£ he U. S. Victory Waste Paper Campaign, "it is little less than abotage at this time to say or hink--'only a scrap of paper!" " Re-emphasizing the critical need or waste pap"er salvage, Mr. Yiendly said, the American people must contribute 33 per cent laper this year than year if the require- of pui- military forces and iur essential civilian demands are o be met. "The goal of 8,000,000 ons o£ waste paper in 1944 is ased on minimum needs set by he War Production Board," he ;aid. In response to this appeal Mason City Boy Scouts are planning he first of a series ot monthly door to door pickups Saturday. Mason City residents are asked to have their waste paper on the porch bundles, magazines and newspapers In separate bundles if possible. The collection will last through the day. "Demand for waste paper for essential military use grows in proportion to the progress of the ivar," Mr. Friendly continued. 'These military demands come at a-time-when' paper production is down because of a shortage/of its most essential ingredient, pulpwood. Pulpwood supply is limited because of the shortage o£ 'manpower, Lack : of lumberjacks to cut *he timber has resulted in a de- :rease in pulpwood supply of 3 500,000 cords. "Every 1,500, pounds of waste paper--that 'only a^scrap of paper/ we used to talk about--corresponds to a cord of wood. Waste paper must substitute during the war for much of the pulpwood used in the manufacture of paper and paper products." Graphically illustrating how waste paper salvaged in the current collection drive becomes essential fighting equipment, Mr. Friendly listed some of the .most important wnr H«;(K: nf tv^t fcTMnv. Iowa Delegates to GOP Convention Likely Will Be Uninstructed D«s Moines, (fl) -- Republican state headquarters Tuesday pre dieted that the Iowa delegation t the republican national conventioi at Chicago June 2S probablj would not be instructed for an; presidential candidate.

"There is activity in the state ii behalf of presidential candidate; but none of these is likely to gaii enough ground to upset the senti ment which- exists in favor o a national delegation withou pledges or instructions."

(XP)_Here is a uestion-answer explanation o£ he congressional fight o v e r oldier voting. * JY ha * are the main argu- A. Whether there should be a tderal ballot or sfate ballots Q. What's the federal ballot and how would'it work? , A. The servicemen would not ote m the primaries and would -ot vote for state or local offices hey would vote only in the final ontest for president, vice presi- ent and members · of congress from their states. They would vote on blank bal- ots supplied by the armed serv- ces, either writing in the name f the candidates or merely the lame of the party, democratic or opublican, as they chose. The candidates' names would ie supplied the armed services iy a federal ballot commission of I democrats- and 2 republicans appointed by the president, with enate confirmation. Once the ballots were marked ind collected, they would be re- urned by the armed services to he commission for redistribution o the various secretaries of state vho in turn would send them down the line to the proper vot- ng precincts. Q. What is the state ballot and low would it work? A. The 'details on the state bal- ot system are still up in the air but boil down to this: The 48 states would make up heir own ballots, with the names f 'the various candidates for ederal, state or even local offices. Servicemen, on postcards mpplied by the army and navy, would write their state secretaries tor ballots, vote them, and send :hem back via the armed services :o the state secretaries. Or--the states would print their Dallots and turn them over to :he armed forces for distribution to the men of each state, without necessity · of each serviceman writing in to request a ballot Q. Which would be the easier to handle, the federal ballot or the state ballot? A.' There is no doubt that the federal ballot could be distributee and collected much more easily Q. Why? A. Being uniform and blank, the array and navy could distribute to -all ships and units Then the services would have only 4 IN CLEVELAND Boston playe'rs hit only 4 home runs all season in Cleveland--and 3 of them were at huge Clevelanc stadium in night games, 2 by Jim Tabor and the other by Leon Cul berson; The daytime-Jiomer. was by Ilodkie 'George Metkovich. shipping containers made from paper.

In the 1944 elections those names would total probably less than 1,000. Q. Why should the job of distributing the state ballot form be harder. A. Lack of uniformity is the main difficulty. The states have various ways "of preparing their ballots. Some might be a separate ballot for state and federal offices, some might also contain the names of local o f f i c e candidates. Q. What makes that difficult to handle? A. Suppose Sussex county in Delaware has 22 voting precincts and, because of local offices involved or for some other reason, he ballot for each precinct is different from the other. Then John Tones, who came from precinct , 2 in Sussex county but now is fighting in Italy, would be able to vote not on a straight Delaware Ballot but only on a ballot from precinct No. 2 in Susses county in Delaware. Multiply that condition by a thousand counties in this country and the increased job' o£ distribution can be appreciated. There might be men from 48 different states in one company in Italy. . Q. Well, if this* is so elementary, why is congress debating the measures instead of passing the federal ballot plan? A. Because speed is not the only point involved and here's why. In 1942 congress passed a soldier vote bill--the soldiers were to receive their proper ballot from their state secretary after writing in to ask for it--which said this: Any state requirements as a prerequisite to voting--like rules on absentee balloting, paying a poll- tax or registering--were to be brushed aside. Thus, even though states specifically .had laws on those requirements, congress said THE PRESCRIPTION SHOP 9 E A S T S T A T E S T R E E T B. McGran* Mir, they didn't count insofar as servicemen were involved. But in 1942, although more than 2 million were in service, only 28,000 voted. , So the federal ballot idea" was advanced as a means of getting a larger servicemen's vote. But the best-known federal ballot bill now in congress still waives aside state laws on voting. . Some democrats and republicans are fighting- the federal ballot plan on these grounds: That states' rights are being violated, that only the states and not congress have a right to say who shall vote in any state.
