Appeal Continues for More Contributions to Polio Fund continue through this week' It was deemed wise, in light of the war situation, to dispense with the usual ball here and invite direct contributions instead. The response to this appeal has been excellent. "But there have been a large number that we have beeif unable to contact," said A. M. Schanke, chairman of the Cerro Gordo county chapter of the National Association' for Infantile Paralysis. "We should appreciate it if these would brine or send their contributions to the campaign headquarters at 310 North Federal. Many have called and made their subscri ptions." The local chapter's assistance to polio victims extends to persons who were afflicted with disease many years ago. It was pointed out that the policy of the National Foundation strictly adhered to by the nearly 3,000 local chapters affiliated with the foundation all over the nation, that assistance be extended to any person afflicted with infantile paralysis as well as those crippled or maimed from an earlier attack of the disease, regardless of age race creed or color and that no embarrassing investigation of the financial condition of the applicant or the applicant's family is made. All that is required is a statement from the attending physician that the person i-r actually suffer- ing from the disease or from (h after effects of an earlier attac of the disease and that the assist ance which may be given is likel to provide benefits to the patien Day and night, science is ever o the alert to uncover new mean and methods for the prevention and control of this disease. Thi grim reaper operates largely by way of epidemic. All are in hi path. He prefers to invade whol communities, striking right am left, and his preference for chil dren is still one of his grimmes and most outstanding eharacteris tics. There is a great deal that is mys terious and'unknown about him He needs expert research, closes observation, and trailing. That h can ultimately be defeated is th nope and belief of science. Bu Meanwhile, he stalks abroad, only half disarmed, and worst of all, the ' ne , my of "ttle children and bis children. His defeat is cheap at any price but no one is asked to pay a bi: price toward that end. Contributions large and small, from rich and poor, can lick him. Proof o that exists in the strides that have been made in the past decade. When you contribute toward laying m the dust our arch-enemy infantile paralysis, you are removing from your own path and from the path of everyone near and dear to,you a terrible peril J. W. Irons Iowa Chairman in Savings-Loan Bond Drive Emphasis on Purchase of Bonds by Large Corporations R E N T OUR ELECTRIC FLOOR SANDERS We Van Ness Phone 17 24 . 2? J. W. Irons, Mutual Federal Savings and Loan association of Mason City, is the 1944 chairman in Iowa for the United States Savings and Loan League's government bond campaign, it is announced by John F. Scott, St. Paul, president of the league Having started Feb. 3, when the 4th war loan emphasis began to be especially on purchase of bonds by corporations and large institutions, the savings and loan associations for the country as a whole expect to buy at least half of their year's self-imposed quota of $400,000,000 during the present drive, Mr. Irons said. Iowa savings and loan institutions' quota is 54,000,000 of bonds*, for the year. J. W. IRONS . Last year, Mr. Irons points out, the goal adopted by this business was reached and doubled. Repayments on home loans ahead of schedule and a sustained inflow of savers' funds have made it posible for them to have an increasing part in the financing of the war as hostilities progressed FINE DIAMONDS ADY'S WATCH SHOP 19 West State Phone M9 and this year should see a new peak in their participation, the local man said.

FURLOUGH IN SALISBURY Salisbury, Conn., (/P)_Staff Sergeant Sidney Ball, Jr., of this town stationed in Great Britain, had 30 aays leave and was homesick, lime was too short for him to come home, so he spent his furlough jn Salisbury, England. EDUCATION LACK EVIDENT AMONG MEN IN SERVICE Million Turned Down Because of Illiteracy Says Mrs. Bishop ''As a mother whose 3 sons ant ^sons-in-law have been taken int the armed forces, I was con cerned that a million youn» men have been lost to the war effor because we failed to teach them to read. I believe it is the concern of all parents, whose sons an serving their country that a mil lion potential soldiers have been lost to the war effort for lack o elementary education," said Mrs A. A. Bishop of Mason City on the KGLO Forum Tuesday eve "TMJT T £ e subject °f har talk was Why Illiterates in America To nay? Staling she had looked up the facts, Mrs. Bishop declared that o the 3,000,000 men rejected by the army about one-third were turnec down because they had less than 4th grade schooling, which is the army requirement. She said, further, that the overwhelming majority of them came from poor districts of southern states and o these a large percentage ara Negroes. "I also found," she said, "that although «very state has a compulsory education law, that law is not enforced rigidly, particularly with the Negro of the south While the majority of these 11 literates are Negro, many thousands are white, but all are American citizens." She said that one of the many :asks of educators today is to show the way to better schools. "I fond that our educators have been struggling for years to ge a federal aid law passed. A bil providing for such aid to schools, .vas killed in the senate last year iVhy should anyone oppose such federal aid?" "Because," Mrs. Bishop contin ued "it would cost something." It was said that educators it. iwa. have, for some time, been ·yinc to interest parents in school needs and last year a new school code with provision for the leeds, as well as many others, was brought before the slate legisla- ure. "Unfortunately enough parents did not let their legislators know hey wanted this revised code so he bill was lost," she said. ' "A reading, informed citizenr s a bulwark of democracy. No dc- nocracy will long endure without t. The schools can't carry all the oad. Parents will have to shoulder ome of the responsibility," she oncluded. 400 Attend Youth Center atY.M.C.A.

DISCUSS FUTURE OF AIRPORT AND HEMP FACTORIES Chamber Board Hears Reports on Possible Program for Mason City More than 700 interested per sons attended a mid-west aviatioi conference at Kansas City las week, it was reported to the Cham ber of Commerce board of direc tors Tuesday noon by George E Mendon. chairman of the cham ber's committee on aviation Most of the conference' pro gram, he stated, was taken up with steps necessary to obtain an airport such as that already pro cured for Mason City. Leadin: authorities in the aviation field as sorted that a Class IV airport sucl as is being developed here would be all that would be necessary in the immediate post war aviatior development. They foresaw a verj few larger fields, but believec that airplanes would be so devel oped that most of the air trafft would land and take off on tlv Class IV fields. The possibilities of hemp as an after-war crop were discussed b' M. D. Judd, chairman of th Chamber's industrial promotion commitee, who reported on an interview of Chamber officer with Fred Butcher, president o War Hemp Industries, Inc. It is th hope of Mr. Butcher and others as sociated with him in the industry he slated, to develop a pcrmanen hemp industry in the middl west. This, however, very mucl depends on (he course of the wa and the resulting competition o lack of it from sisal and other im ported products. ,.War Hemp Industries has hac many inquiries from persons desir ing to purchase one or all of tin hemp plants, Mr. Butcher told thi committee. However, it will not bi until the fall of 1344 that the wa production board and other gov ernmental agencies will determine whether a 1945 crop is to b planted around those plants which will not have a 1S44 crop. In the meantime the Mason Citj plant will be busy for scvera months processing the 1943 crop which has been successfully har vested. The Chamber board also took certain legalizing steps in connection with a §3,000 cash guorantci fund, which it has in escrow t assure the continued operation o a local industry. Limited Quantity of Rubber Work Shoes on Ration Free List ·Individual retailers and jobbers of men's rubber boots and rubbe work shoes may sell limited quantities of excess stocks ration-free on authorization from their OPA district office, it has been an nounced. The released rubber footwear i to be marked with official non rationed tickers before it is ration-free however. This regulation became effective Jan. 29. This is not a general release from rationing and does not indicate an improvement in the to tal supply ot rationed rubber footwear available for civilian work-era. The new plan will en able dealers to move types o stock which have not sold wcl under rationing in some areas ana which might be wasted throu"h deterioration. _ " Applications to make the ration-free sales are to be made to the Des Moines OPA district office. Maniey Home After Brief Capital Stay Bernard Maniey has returned to Mason City after a brief sojourn m Washington, where he went to accept a position as senior price analyst in the beverage division of '.he office of price administration. U was a case of the assignment not being what I expected," he said. I thought it would be a job that would utilize the knowledge and experience I had gained in my connection with establishing ovya's slate liquor control setup It turned out to be just a clerical OD. For the time being Mr. Maniey will b« associated with his 2 brothers, Joseph and James, in the uaniey Land company.

All of which goes to show, Mrs Makeever pointed out, that meat points for grease is having its effect in increased quantities. Saturday Cubs and Girl Scouts \vill again make their rounds picking up grease from house- ouse- wives who wish to continue with Kesults in the January pickup indicated that a sufficient number of housewives preferred to (urn their salvage grease over to the Cubs and Girl Scoufs. The matter is entirely optional, however, Mrs. Makeever stated The one big thing is to get the grease to rendering plants, from where it is shipped to vital wav industries. V - s s Grace Joyce, popular New Ypik model, is also a conscientious housewife. Every dron of cooking grease that she cannot re-use is religiously saved and timied over to the Fat Salvage Campaign. Girl beout Lucille Ordemann, knowing hpw precious this grease is in the manufacture of war materials, does her good deed by making sure that salvaged kitchen fat is turned over immediately to the neighborhood meat dealer. Just one. tablespoonful of inedible fat, which can be easily salvaged by every housewife, every day, will supply the glycerine necessary for 73 small-pox inoculations. One pound will fire 10 50 caliber bullets. POLIO VICTIM BETTER Luverne--Mrs. I. H. Benedict relumed Friday morning from DCS Moines, where she saw her granddaughter, Carol Meyer, of Muscatine.
