M. C. A. Wednesday night--country and city folk alike--to express their appre ciation to one who had de voted his time and energy for 2 years toward the building o£ better community. It was 20 years ago Feb. 1 tha Marion E. Olson, county exten sion director,- came to Cerrc Gordo county as its county agenl At Wednesday night's dinne m e e t i n g speakers .representing both rural and urban life tok earnestly and sincerely, somethin of how fruitful those years hac been. Eloquent as the tribute of th speakers, in the minds of mans was the fact that men and womer from the farms of Cerro Gordi county, from business houses ani professions in Mason City gath ered in such numbers as to crowd the capacity of banquet room to honor a man for his contribu lions to community life for ; decades. Speakers conveyed somethini of the qualities of the man thu honored--that he had lived up t the Rotary (o£ which he is member) tenet of "service o above self," 'that he had giver unstintingly of his time, talent and energy to the community both city and country, that h sought continually to irnprov upon his own qualifications bj study and university graduat work in his chosen fields, that hi work was always with a sel effacing quality and that he wa activated'not so much by the im mediacies of life as by a philoso phical long term outlook, looking toward better human anc social relationships. Something of Mr. Olson's work in adult education and other activities in which city residents w e r e directly interested was pointed out by Dr. T. E. Davidson past district governor of Rotary. "He has the peculiar faculty of bringing people together to study problems," Dr. Davidson stated ·He has given the whole community a lift." In reviewing Mr., Olson's graduate work at the University of Chicago and other institutions, Dr Davidson pointed out that the county extension director (as his office is now called) has but to write a thesis and. do some brief resident work at a university to doctor of philosophy de- ibtain gree. Mrs. Olson, he said, should also have a full measure of credit. He pointed'out that the work of he county extension director in- ·ariably meant attending a pro- allpaper and paint.

That has been 'changed so the present emphasis is on the development of the boy. Records showed, Mr.'Taff stated, that in the 20'years Mr. Olson hac held 6,460 meetings, an average o 323 a year, contacted 36,104 farm families, trained 3,755 farm leaders and enrolled 6,304 4-H mem- oers. A gilt to Mr. Olson was sented by C. W.' Files, former 5 Farm Bureau president, who tolc a number of stories, mostly abou Methodists. Graciously responding to this presentation, Mr. Olson expressed Jus appreciation. It has been a joy, he said, to work with his neighbors and friends in the interpretation ol scientific farm problems and in helping? to solve" social problems in the light of Christian teachings. Earl Dean, former president of the Farm Bureau, who presided and other speakers in lauding the' work of Mr. Olson, were high in their praise of Miss Genevieve Smith, his office assistant. She has had an important part in the building of an efficient Farm Bureau office, they stated. Introduced were S. A. Mathre, president o£ the county Farm Bureau and originator of the idea for a dinner honoring Mr. Olson; Mrs. Leo Oswald,- women's chairman; Willard Fulghum, boys' club leader; Ernest Buss, past president of the Farm Bureau; R. M Hall, past president of the Farm Bureau; Fred Wagner, vice president of the Mason City Chamber of Commerce, and Lester Milligan, secretary of the Mason City Chamber of Commerce. The Rev. Marvin B. Kober gave the invocation. Mr. Dean led in community singing and a high school string ensemble under the direction of Miss Marjorie Smith provided music during the serving o£ an excellent meal. U.STMetiiod Was Surprise to Nipponese By LOUIS F. KEEMLE United Press War Analyst The American objective of taking-control of the entire Marshall islands 'group seems likely to be attained b^ reason of the bold stroke w h i c h las knocked out he key Kwaja- ein atoll before h e Japanese c o u l d recover from the surprise and power )f the Wow. The surprise was 2-fold and lid not lie in he attack'itself, KEEMLE , since the Japanese knew the yiarshalls were slated for invasion. 'n the first place, instead of "is- and hopping" and attacking the Jaluit or Mili atolls, nearest to our bases in the Gilberts, the Ameri- command leap-frogged to Kwajalein, the heart of the Japanese defense system east ol Truk. Secondly, the size of the American expedition must have far ex- c e e d e d Japanese'' expectations. Admiral Chester W. Nimitz sent not a task force but a fleet. It was he biggesf thing oj the kind ever undertaken in the Pacific. If the Japanese wanted to con- cst this power adequately, they vould have had to send out the main part of their own fleet, pre- nmably gathered at Truk. Admiral N i m i t z figuratively tood in their front yard with a hip on his, shoulder and his nds behind his back, a brick in ach hartd. The Japanese dared lot accept the challenge, nor are hey likely to once we are firmly stablished in Kwajalein. The other ' important atolls of he group, including Jaluit, Mili Maloclap, and Wotje thus are lanked by the Gilbert islands to he south and Kwajalein to the lorthwest. In view of our undis- mted-sea and air control, their position is precarious and may 'ecome hopeless. They undoubtedly will put up notracted resistance before they- ire cleaned out, but in the end - - . _ _. r ELOQUENT uppe^pictu^'are: Mr"?Leo O^Sdf Sunty^ome^ home J"ftSS^^°Wai 1. E. Davidson.

Hannaman, son of Sir. and Sirs. W. F. Hannaman, 1228 Jefferson N. W.,-has been promoted to the rank of major at Camp Breckinridge, Ky., where he is now stationed. Before entering the service in April, 1941, Maj. Hannaman was plant engineer at the Lehigh Portland Cement company here. He was graduated from Iowa State college, Ames, in 1937. His wife is with him at Breckinridge. their supply problem should prove insurmountable. Eventually, when our position in th« IWarshaJls is firmly established, the great Japanese base at Truk will be ripe for assault, and it appears probable that the Japanese will have to risk the main part of their fleet to hold it. Whether they will do'so is highly problematical. Kwajalein i's within 1,000 miles of Truk. Ha- baul, on New Britain, is .within 800. At these distances, American heavy land-based bombers, would be within good range of Truk. It is apparent that the American assault on Rabaul is not likely to be far behind the operations in the Marshalls. Flanked by such bases in American hands. Truk would scarcely be an ideal fighting ground for the Japanese fleet.
