Wednesday, Feb. 9, 19M Q MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE ^^^^^ ,, II LEADERS MAKE I POSTWAR PLANS Hancher Outlines New Moves to Give Service Iowa City--While the University of Iowa is continuing to train i civilian and army specialized students in a satisfactory manner, its ' executives are looking forward to .(·,,;. the post-war period, President |i:VJ Virgil M. Hancher declared in his ·'-'·'·' annual report to alumni. He said that a survey of future |i}, needs for space and physical fa- l.'M cilities is under way, in the hope that a long-range plan can be devised to meet all reasonable needs. "Studies are being made of trends in teaching and research and credit for men returning: from the armsd forces is another matter '.«receiving attention," President ;-/ Hancher declared. ft The president pointed out that M President Roosevelt has recom- q.\ mended to congress the possibility ta ol federal aid for men whose ed- KJucation has been interrupted by ythe war. It is expected that dis- .fa.[charged veterans will -be return- lining to the university in increasing ··'-"oers, with a few on the Iowa --jus now. , The interval between this date ftand the time when students begin ;(o return in large numbers may r well be the most critical period of ^he war for the university. A uni- yehslty is hard to kilt but it is easy injure. ... "Our concern is to maintain the viniversity among the best of its Kind. More than maintenance ol physical, plant and equipment, it means keeping a staff of high quality and maintaining a spirit of co-operation and c o n f i d e nee among scholars and teachers which marks the true university from a mere collection of unrelated colleges and divisions," said President Hancher. He praised "the statesmanlike attitude of the governor and the general assembly" in providing means to meet responsibilities and said that ability to co-operate with [x\ the armed services has aided in J[ discharging wartime duties. ; 4 "We have every reason to be- BKST "DONUTTEER" -- Servicemen acclaim Jackie Tucker of Karber's Ridge, 111., as the nation's most popular "donutteer' doinsr canteen work. More than 100,000 soldiers cast votes in the election sponsored by the Na tional Dunking association. !» lieve that n-y our facilities and in';{ struction have been satisfactory the armed forces and alumni · ; s r I'M to '·' may well be proud of the part the i university has played in the war i to date," asserted President Han'! cher. · Faculty members, in their wil- I lingness and ability to adapt i themselves to the needs of the j army specialized training program, have set an example of patriotic service that might well be a standard for the nation. "Many have -taught in fields of secondary, or even more remote, interest. For example, men in literature have taught . history and , speech, political . scientists and i psychologists have taught physics, and all this has been done with- "OUt the tangible rewards available : to men in industry," the president " said. Civilian enrollment for the current semester exceeds 2,600 and the total of civilian and armed service trainees on the campus is more than 6,100. Decline in civilian NEW RAILROAD TO SPAN ANDES AT 10,500 FEET .Expect Construction to End m 1945, Year in Advance of Schedule By THOMAS F. MOORE United Press Staff Correspondci Buenos Aires, U,R--More tha 2,000 husky laborers picked to their ability to work in high alti tudes are constructing a trans Andean railway on a desolate 10,5CO foot plateau in norther Argentina to Jink the agricuitur .ally rich province of Salta wit the Chilean nitrate port Antofa gasta, 576 miles away. Working so fast that construe lion is expected lo end in. 194; 1 year ahead of schedule, forwar Bangs already are building th miles of th while othe enrollment, he pointed out, is due to demands ·M the armed forces and to the fact I,Uhat the university has moved to t',3. virtually continuous program, , Awhile high schools have not'done ':'o. fj Result is that for several se- F ,!nesters students have been grad- ivuated at a faster rate than they · have been entering from high school, but in due time the situation will tend to stabilize at a new level, declared President Hancher. Mrs. H. F. Yingst Dies in Municipal Hospital Iowa Falls--Funeral services for Mrs. H. F. Yingst, 66, will be held at the home Thursday at 2 p. mi.; and the Evangelical church at Ackley at 3 p. m. She died at Ellsworth Municipal hospital Monday afternoon.

They lived in a number of Iowa communities lor 25 years, and his last charge was at Wilton Junction. They came to Iowa Falls about a year and a half ago. She is survived by her husband, 2 daughters, Mrs W C Strassburg of Ackley, and Mrs W. M.- Barkmeier of Lake City' 6 grandchildren, and 2 brothers, C. A. Danner of Garden City, Kans.: and C. D.

Recently they lai 1 mile of track in 1 day, a rccor for work in such a high altitudi Similar to - the c r-e w-s -wh worked eastward from Californi to meet the tracklayers pushin westward on the first transconti nental United States railway, an other group on the Chilean sid of the Andes is building a line t connect with the Argentine rail way at the border. Argentine State Railways au thorities in charge of construclio told the United Pi-ess that dailj freight trains will haul vegetable, and meat from Salta to Antofa ffasta in 1915 if 80 miles of rail, contracted for in the U n i t e i States arrive in time. The Areen tines hope that when roadbei construction ends next June suf ficient American rails will have been delivered to continue/track laying. Meantime, they are laying 25 miles of rails on hand. Completion of their railwai will end one of the Andes' las" jrcat trade barriers. Hilhertc Antofagasta, rich in nitrate bu situated in one of the world': most desolate, rainless sections has ^ had to import many ol its an lux Buy War Savings Bonds and Stamps from your Globe-Gazette carrier boy. NORTHERN LUMBER CO. FHONE 30, foodstuffs f r o m central southern Chile--while Salta . u . v - uriated in agricultural wealth only 300 airline miles away. Although it is unlikely t h a . Salta will import goods made in Antofagasta. w h i c h produces solely nitrate, Argentine authorities believe that the railway traffic will not be one sided. Con struction of the line will shortei by 2,750 miles the route which automobiles and agricultural machinery, for instance, imported from New York to Salta must take, by permittins: their ship ment down the west coast and over the Andes instead of by the loneer east coast route and l.Ofle mile trans-shipment from Bu«' nos Aires. Similarly, the railway will facilitate trade between northern Argentina and all Pa cific points. Nevertheless, t h e Argentine government, which is building the line in its own territory docs not look at the railway's business aspect through rose colored glasses. One high authority in the Argentine Stale Railways told the United Press that although the government will invest approximately 37,500,000 dollars in the line, including rolling stock, it does not expect to regain one cent of that amount at least in the near future. However, it is believed that the road will pay for its maintenance, and that will increase the progress and wealth of northern Argentina. Passenger traffic will be small because of the sparse populations in the areas which the railway will serve. Only one passenger train weekly will be provided, a diesel unit. Unlike the Santiago-B u e n o s Aires trans-A n d c a n railroad some 600 miles south, the Salta- Antofagasta line will not encounter difficulties with snow in winter. The atmosphere is so arid in the region which the railway traverses that no rain nor snow falls I in winter. Galley Chef Finds Grief Follows War Halifax, N. S., (UK--It would be hard to find a living person to whom the war has brought as many hardships, tragedies and narrow escapes from death as it has to Louis Brahan, 52-year-old former head chef at Buckingham Palace. Braha'n's new berth as Main John in the galley of the Lady Nelson, ' Canada's hospital ship, would seem to be a prelty safe spot. But he has been torpedoed so many times--5 to be exact--he's not putting much faith in international law and is keeping his life preserver handy at all times. Brahan nearly died in a lifeboat in November, 1941. when he spent 18 days drifting in the North Atlantic before he was rescued. He spent 7 months in a hospital after that experience undergoing treatment for his frozen arms and legs Earlier that year, Brahan. who speaks 9 languages, was torpedoed twice in 2 days, the rescue ship picked him up from the first sinking also falling prey to a U-boat. While the hardy chef was undergoing these narrow escapes from death, his i wife and 2 of their children were killed when their house in London was demolished during the blitz. One of his sons went down with the British aircraft carrier Ark Royal when she was torpedoed in the Mediterranean. Brahan was wounded during the last war when he served as a gunnery officer after resigning his post at Buckingham Palace. Latei King George V decorated him for bravery, and for 2.years he served as cook for Lord Louis Mountbal- ten, now allied commander in southeastern Asia.
