1 ll FRIDAY, JANUARY 5, 1945 ^ MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE ft i ' Must Stop War To Save Civilization The means of securing and maintaining the hard-won allied victory which--at least in Europe--seems assured in 1945, were discussed in a KGLO Forum broadcast Thursday evening by R. F. dough, local attorney. The topic of his address was "1945 Problems."* Creekmur Memorial Services at Wesley Methodist Sunday At 2:30 in Afternoon With Doctor Peterson, Pastor, Officiating . "I would deem us unworthy of the f aerificei that are being made by our young people on the battle- IronU U we do not establish the institution* that will prevent future wan," Clench said. "For about 25 years following the last war, America tried one type of policy with the honest view at preventing the re-entry oj America into another world con- fiict. We separated ourselves entirely from association with our f zllies of the last war, and con- t gress passed a so-called "neu- ) trality act,' and the act against making loans to other nations, and \ acts requiring that any nation purchasing war materials in America should pay cash and carry the commodities home in their own boats," he continued. "This policy was pursued up to the very time of "the Jap attack on Dec. 7,' 1941. The policy had nearly a quarter of a century of testing, and in the end, more powerful nations attacked and declared war on us than at any previous time in our history. Our nation must certainly learn the lesson, from the policies pursued during that period, that that road does not keep us out of war. I feel that we should definitely" associate ourselves with our allies and other united nations at the conclusion of this war, and continue such association on terms which will enable us to join in . taking early action to prevent aggression. "The surrested organization for the united nations contained in the proposals at Dumbarton Oaks is not yet adopted and is tentative. However, it should afford a basis ': for the establishment of an inter* national organization to which we may be a party, that will enable the united nations to prevent another such terrible catastrophe as the present war. I do not see cow we can express our appreciation for the magnificent sacrifice being made by our young men on the battlefields of the world, if we fail in this endeavor to make this the last world war. At any rate, the policy now being suggested has not been tried by America. The former policy has been tried and found an utter failure. It would seem a new approach is required. "The point in the Dumbarton Oaks plan that has produced most argument in this country is the question of giving the American Â»j-r representative hi the council, au- 7! thority; to, make decisions, r with_the. representatives of other nations, to employ forces- committed to prevent aggression, without first obtaining in each instance the prior approval of congress," dough declared. "It is true under our constitution the power to declare war is in spect that matches the strbnr. united power of our fighting men! The Dumbarton Oaks plan suggests setting up an international court of justice, either by continuing the court which has been functioning under the league of nations, with some ^amendments to the charter, or by setting up an entirely new court. Recently, Former C h i e f Justice Hughes of the supreme court of the United States, and other lawyers and students of the problem have expressed themselves definitely that the court established by the united nations should continue the former court of international justice, in order that the great body of precedent and procedure for hearing and deciding international disputes may be retained. With these views, I am in hearty accord. "1 am hopeful that as time goes on, the united nations court will develop a booty of jurisprudence that can be used to settle by due process of law most of the controversies that have resulted in war. Such a court will, in time, by developing its procedure and increasing the cases to be considered, evolve means for settling disputes peaceably. Such a court should ultimately attain the prestige in international "affairs that our own supreme court has acquired in our national affairs. "All human progress convinces me that the evolutionary process is infinitely superior to the revolutionary. No human mind is adequate at any one time to fix arrangements for adjustment of all of the conflicts of human nature, but I am convinced that If we work on sound principles now, we can ultimately destroy civilization's greatest monster, war Our civilization, which is so dear to us, can be destroyed. Other civilizations in the centuries gone by have flowered and wilted, and so can ours, if we continually subject it to the strain of the increasing destruction which is now possible in modern war," dough said. Be concluded: \ "I think all American citizens should give thoughtful consideration to these matters. Since our government operates t h r o u g h elected representatives and senators and presidents, and since the right of petition is preserved in our constitution to all citizens, I feel that every person who has any view on the subject should write to his representatives and senators and. to our president, urging that practical measures be taken :to "prevent" any world war. It Will not be useful merely to sit idly by, listening to speeches, listening to arguments, and criticizing final results. If the sacrifice of the next generation in another war is to be prevented, all citizens must now take such ac- HEKBEKT O. CEEEKSIUK --Soundnun 1/c St. Ansgar Soldier Receives Promotion . St. Ansgar--2nd Lt. Paul F 7 . Wold, son of Mrs. Anna Wold, St. Ansgar, is one of a group of Iowa boys receiving temporary promotions, it was announced by the war department. Lt.

On the completion of his junior year he enlisted with the TJ. S. navy. At the time of his death he had completed 7 years of service. * He is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Oscar O.

Patton Succeeds Huffman as President of Kiwanis *44 Head Surveys Successful Year, Predicts More in '45 congress. However, the power of 'congress to enact the law giving our representative authority to act, when and where necessary, seems adequately covered by the constitutional power to declare war. The greater power of congress to conscript every man and woman hi America for total war, certainly must include the power to do the lesser act, to wit, the authorization of our representative to act with other nations to prevent the need for total war. The debate upon this point is largely a legal quibble, and must be rejected by practical citizens, and we must keep our minds on the main objective: "When differences arise among the nations with whom we are associated as to boundaries or forms of government, it will be easy to forget our main purpose. Bat the details most not be permitted to prevent agreement on such terms as will enable the united nations to suppress aggression in the incipient stage. This high purpose will not be accomplished if we do not have strong leadership by the president, the secretary of state, and by our senators and representatives. We should present a strong, united policy in this re- lion as to make their will effec- 4-ttnx " SUCCESS STORY! ThÂ« AMaumKni Swing to Â«M New 200 OVERSEA BAGS FILLED Clarion--Mrs. W. H.

Hnffman presented Patton with the president's button and received the past president's button from George S. Marty, past lieutenant-governor oÂ£ the Iowa-Nebraska Kiwanis district In a resume of Kiwanis* 1944 activities, Huffman pointed out that the club's successful year was due largely to "swell co-operation" on the part of every member. Highlights of the year's projects included another profitable apple sale, an increase in membership to 82 actives plus 4 priv-^, ileged members and 12 in the armed forces, an attendance average of 83.1 per cent, work with underprivileged children, Boy and Girl Scouts, the Y: M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. Kiwanis objectives for 1945 are "Win the War and Build for Peace," Huffman said. He urged club members to remember that tomorrow's dividends, are the products of today's diligence, adding that sustained effort is needed to keep Kiwanis moving.
