E D I T O R I A L S -Rules for Students in Russia's Schools OEADERS we believe will fin " an interest in this new set o regulations covering the behavio _o£ students in the senior classes o secondary schools in Russia. Th rules, it is explained, became ef fective with the beginning of th present school year and are de signed to bring about stricter dis cipline and a keener sense of duty honor and responsibility. Ever: student is granted a "student 1 card" which he is required t carry with him at all times. Each card contains the following: "Each student must: 1. Perserveringly and persistent ly master the education objective 3n order to become an educatec and cultured citizen and to con tribute as much good as possibl to the soviet fatherland. 2. Study diligently, attend al classes regularly, and be on tim lor lessons. 3. Obey unquestioningly the 01 ders of the principal of the schoo and the teachers. 4. Come to school clean, combed and neatly dressed. 5. Keep.your desk in schoo clean and neat. 6. Enter the class immediately after the bell and take your place Enter and leave the class only wit the teacher's permission 7. Sit straight during the les son, neither lean nor sprawl- li s ten attentively to the teacher" explanations and students' an swers; do not talk and do not oc eupy yourself with irrelevancies. 8. Guard the honor of you school and your ciass, as your own property. 9. Arise and stand at attentio upon the entrance either of th teacher or the director of th school and on their exit from th class. · 10 -Stand straight when answer ing the teacher, and sit down onl with the teacher's permission When you wish to answer or t ask a question raise your hand, 11. Write down accurately I your record book, or your specia notebook, what is assigned by th teacher for the next lesson an snow your record book to you parents. Prepare all your lessons by yourself. 12. Be respectful to the princi pal and the teachers. In meetin the principal and the teacher away from the school--greet them with a polite bow, boys removing tneir hats. 13. Be polite to older people- be modest and well-behaved in and out of school and in public places 14. Do not use abusive anc coarse expressions; do not smoke -Uo not play games for money or other valuables. 15. Take good care of school property. Be careful with your property as well as with the property of your comrades. 16. Be attentive and obligating to older persons, small children to the weak and the sick; give them your seat in a street car or in a bus, and help them in every wav possible. 17. Obey your parents, help them, and take care of your younger sisters and brothers. 18. Keep your room clean; keep your clothes, shoes, and bed in order. 19. Have your student's card with you at all times; take good care of it, do not give it to anybody, and present it at the request °i * he Principal and the teacher of the school. Looking to Peace THE service clubs of Mason City --Hotary, Lions, Kiwanis, and Business and Professional Women --are doing our community a genuine service by bringing in 4 authorities on world problems for 4 weekly forum programs starting Friday night of this week at the high school auditorium. "Contributors t o ' a New World Order" will be the general theme to be considered, in the series. Each of the visiting speakers comes in as an authority on^some particular Phase of the'general subject Not the least pleasant part of the programs the question and answer period at the conclusion of the principal talks. The premise of the participating clubs is that if the peoples of the world can become conscious of their inlcrrelatedness and get together in a neighborly sort of way, the resultant understanding will take them a long way on the road to durable peace. A like program in other years has proved helpful. The 4 speakers of the series will discuss what the principal powers among the united nations--Russia, China, England and the United States--have to contribute to a new world order. They will not pretend to present any panaceas for permanent peace. It will be to inform rather than convert that they come here. Jop Myth Exploded IT NOW appears that Japan has oversold us on the impregnability of her so-called outer defense system. Tarawa was a terrible test but the Marshalls were a pushover. The Jap air force was knocked out in the first day; the Jap navy ran away from a fight. Jap defenses which had been 25 years in construction fell in 3 days. Now u-e know Japan's ring of Island defenses is very vulnerable --a myth like the invincibility of the Maginot line. The way a task- force pounded Paramushiro 4 miles offshore without Japan's land guns even scoring a hit, was another tipoff that Japan's defenses are tissue paper. Japan is long o.n manpower and cruelty, but short of ships, planes, and guns everywhere. ANOTHER FINNISH TRACK STAR! Look Out Below What kind of democracy do w have anyway if we have to as ume that in a 16 year period onl. one man capable of presidentia leadership can be developed? * * * The invasion of the Marshalls will go down in history as one o America's most amazing militar exploits. * * * -ohn Bricker-s physica nV~r"il s are a^zingly sim liar to those of the last Ohio presi dent, Warren G.

Pros and Cons interesting Viewpoints From Our Exchanges Better Say It With Bonds Clear Lake Mirror: It b r i n a tears to one's eyes to even think of the cruelties that have been visited upon our heroes of Bataan and Corregidor. We can call them names and make faces at them but the element of time and distance gives them an advantage that words can't overcome. Wit} the announcement coming at the height of the 4th war loan drive we can all makfe just a little more sacrifice and buy just a few more bonds or stamps. This would be the best answer to the Japanese and probably do more to hurry their punishment than anything else. This "Comfortable War" Kewane'e, 111., Star-Courier: By their lack of response to the 4th war loan, many Americans have deserved the Ickes rebuke thai too many are fighting "a comfortable war." This is the last lap of the 4th war loan campaign, and the response is lagging at 77 per rent so far. Big money from banks, trust funds, and corpora- lions will undoubtedly rescue the 4th war loan from failure, but '£" bond quotas for individual purchasers are sadly off. It's. No Hoax This Time Indianola Tribune: In World war anti-German propaganda was put out by our, government to ·ouse our fighting spirit. Much of it was proved untrue after the var. Undoubtedly propaganda for similar purpose has been put out y the government in this war. Jut there is too much authentic nd corroborative evidence to lassify the story of the Jap atro- ities as a hoax. Better Increase Your Bonds Estherville News: Better in- rease your war bond quota, be- ause it is reported that autos will ost 40 per cent more, when they're vailable again, than they were in 941. No better way to m a k e money than to pay for a car with /ar bond savings and to pocket he carrying charges of a loan or nstallment buying. The War Is Taken to Germany Sioux City Journal: No quarter f Berlin has escaped the bombs, nd for the first time in many vars the fighting has been carried 0 the Germans on their own soil, he lesson is there for them, if hey can get it through their thick kulls. Vhat Hitler Forgels Marshallto\vn Times-Republican- The trouble with Hitler's belated irades against bolshevism is that mat he had hoped to foist upon le world would have been many mes worse. Editorial of Day THREE EDITORS PASS OX! Ward Barnes in Eagle Grove »gle: Within the past few weeks, owa lost 3 outstanding and influ- ntial newspaper editors; James Rhodes of Newton, Vic Lovejoy f Jefferson and W. H. Prewitt of orest City.

He had his own igorous opinions, but had a high egard for the man who might old opposite views. Mr. Lovejoy of Jefferson was a mdly, human writer. For more ban a quarter o£ a century the sad column on his Jefferson Bee vas captioned, "Seasonable Ser- nons." For these weekly sermons, IK took a text from everv con- eivable form of human activity ocal, state, national and foreign! r hey were sermons in the truest ·snse. Mr. Prewitt had been publishing he Forest City Summit since 1915 nd had rich newspaper experi- nce in the weekly field before he vent to Forest City. He was a ery methodical editor and pub- sher, his paper always going to ress on time, no matter how nuch news and advertising matter ad to be left out. His opinions on he events of his day were widely opied and universally approved. The newspaper profession loses ^hen men o£ this type pass on. hey simply cannot be replaced. r Did You Know?

Walters, Regional Director of Smaller War Plants Corporation, 226 West Jackson, Chicago, lor inventions to help in peace and in war. I have a note from his oflice saying that the call passed along at that time throughout the nation brought in more than 500 inventions. Many of them have been transmitted to the war department for further evaluation.. "Some of them are definitely going to help shorten the war and save lives," said this letter. " B o m b s , torpedoes, mines, planes and new bazooks are a few of the many devices included in the inventions. Microscopic yarns made oj chicken feathers find a new place in the war effort. A transmitter and receiver that can be carried in a vest pocket that can send and receive code, and the cost?--about a dollar. Hundreds ol items for civilian use are among the many ideas received!" "Our job is to act as liaison between the inventor and the war department," said Mr. Walters "to speefl up these inventions and get them into .the hands o£ the proper officials. , "The inventor has been of great assistance to the war effort. There is a lot of good in all ideas, and where would America be today without her Edisons, Franklins, Pultons and many others? "We never can tell when we'll get a good one. All ideas with merit are passed on to the proper war agency and with their acceptance the iriventor gets the production he hopes for." --V-Berlin's "Cellar Sickness" interested in a memo- um from a medical adviser to the German ministry o£ health outlining treatment for an epidemic in Berlin of what is called "cellar sickness" This was quoted in a Swedish newspaper. According to the Swedish item, the sickness is caused by long hours in shelters during raids and it resembles "Spanish flu." First aid posts have been set up throughout Berlin to deal with the epidemic, the report added --V-Information, Please! 1. The country which raises the most cotton iff«.

Thaler oE Norfolk, Nebr., was left just a bit in the dark when he read a let'ter to the captain's parents dated "Who Cares" and giving "Ditto" as the place ot origin. And in the body of the letter was this: "After leaving where we were we loft for here and not knowing we were coming from there to here we could not tell it we would arrive here or not, but nevertheless we are here and not there. "The weather here is just as it is at this season, but of course urJake the weather we had before we came here. "From there to here is just as far as-from here to there. I feel just as I .should for this kind of weather here, but of course I felt all right there for the kind of weather there, so there is nothing to be alarmed about.
