IMf N CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE GOVERNOR ASKS HOME FRONT AID Says Freedom Rests Upon Civlians' Help : Iowa Falls--Great responsibilities rest upon the civilian pbpu- 'lation of our country .during the .war; said Bourke B. Hickenlooper, governor -of Iowa, in addressing the annual dinner .meeting of the chamber of Commerce here. · ' . Upon'those on the home front rests the responsibility for maintaining the freedom of the world, he- said.- It is the responsibility of those on the home front to ·preserve for those in uriiform.the freedom they are .fighting for, he continued.. .We must k e e p ' t h e freedom won-by our ancestors. . .The. greatness/of. America rests upon 3 things,'he declared: First, . the .basic morality of .attitude ot the- peoples;-their willingness .to 'protect and 'defend the rights.of others; 2nd, the right of the individual to work and earn in proportion to what the puts into his work; 3rd, the right of the individual to be responsible for his own destiny. \ ."." If any one of these principles is destroyed, he,said, one of the basic principles 'of democracy is destroyed. " Because. of the great number of our citizens now in uniform, and the great; number who are .engaged . i n ; defense work, the post-war problems will be great, he asserted. "If we approach the post-war problems with the same ' courage the pioneers had," he said, "we can preserve and enhance this great land of ours." We on the home front are "custodians of the system our fighting men expect to preserve," he said in conclusion. PAT TOTALS $268 Camp Croft, S. Car., (U.PJ-^-W. G. Holland, 37, of Gastonia, N.
