14 Wednesday, Feb. 16, 1944 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE WOMEN'S PARTY SEEKING EQUAL RIGHTS -HAYDEN Clear Lake Woman's Club President Tells of Party on KGLO "The Women's party has but one plank--equal rights--and as an organization, takes no action on any other question. We be- Jieve that the principal of equality o£ rights for men and women is so important that it should be ·written into the constitution," said Mrs. Ralph Hayden, president of tie Clear Lake Woman's' club, on the KGLO Forum Tuesday evening. Her subject was. "Equal Bights." Mrs. Hayden pointed out that the National Woman's party, organized by Lucretia aiott and Elizabeth Cady Slanton in 1848, is an organization of women o£ differing political opinions whose purpose is. to secure for women complete equality with men under the law and in all human relationships. She said that the party Is dedicated to the task of removing all present discriminations against women under the Ian-, of preventing further discrimination from beine written into state, national and international law and of gaining for women equal pay for equal work. "We want equality ol opportunity with men in industry, business, the professions, education and politics," she said. It was said that in everv congress for the past 20 3-ea'rs, an equal rights amendment has been proposed. On May 24, 1943, the senate judiciary committee voted in favor of the amendment. On Oct. 5, 1943, the house judiciary committee voted against it. This procedure blocked it from going to the floor of the house for a vote." It was said that in Si states women cannot act on the jury. In Nevada a woman, although owning a business of her own before marriage, must go through a court procedure to satisfy the court that she is competent to continue in business after she is married. In New York, she said, all monies earned by a married woman belong to her husband. In Florida a woman cannot own or sell property without the consent of her husband. In Texas a woman cannot hold public office unless she goes before the court to get her "inabilities" as a married woman set aside. -And, in California laws have been passed setting the wage scale of women, but not o£ men. "The position of women in the industrial and business world today, the responsibility which will fall on them as the .sole breadwinners for many families in the post-war world, the elimination of unfair competition of a lower paid group in the labor market after the war call for the establishment of an equality status," Mrs. Hayden concluded.

HOOSIER WON 2 HIGH MEDALS Came Home Twice Before Hailed as Hero Bloomiugton, Iiid., (U.R) -- Lt. Gerry Kisters, the only man to win both the congressional medal of honor and the distinguished service cross in World War H, had to come home twice before the home town folks realized they had a hero in their midst. After spending many lone weeks in army hospitals recovering: from combat wounds, Kisters, 24, modest and easy-going, said Wednesday that he is "jast beginning to realize I am home." The first time he came to Bloomington after being released from the hospital, Kisters passed unnoticed among the hundreds of men in uniform who crowded the streets during his short stay. He went to Washington with his wife and parents. There, President Roosevelt presented him the congressional medal of honor, and Gen. George C. Marshall pinned the distinguished service cross on his tunic. Kisters became a celebrity. When he returned from Washington, arriving home for the 2nd time within a few days, he was accorded a hero's welcome. Bands played; the governor was there: a congressman made a speech, and all of Bloomingfon honored Lt. Gerry Kisters, the hero. Kisters said^he ''isn't much of a hand at sounding off," but relatives and rriends proudly related the deeds which won for him the nation's highesj awards for "extraordinary heroism, initiative and devotion to duty with complete disregard for his own welfare." .. In Tunisia, Kisters wiped out an enemy artillery emplacement with a hand grenade. In Sicily, he captured one German machine- gun crew and wiped out another, despite being struck a times by enemy bullets. He was sent home to recover, but his wounds did not keep him from participating in a WAC recruiting drive and selling war bonds. The slate of Indiana dedicated 2 days of the 4th war loan drive to Kisters and he made a nationwide radio address in the interests of bond sales and WAC recruiting. Kisters has been so busy that he has just begun to realize he is back. "I'm mighty thankful to be home," he said. "I feel mighty lucky, and it's just gradually dawning on me that I'm here. It isn't something you can know all at once." .. . Kisters' stay at home will end in a few flays--he doesn't know just when--and he will gtf to the Nichols General hospital at Louisville for further treatment o[ his wounds. "And then, back into action-I hope," he said.

Pronouncing the beachhead solid after a tour of inspection, the commander of allied forces in Italy scoffed at pessimistic reports he U ILL!AM HANSFORP had been reading about it and said bluntly that this is no Dunkirk. '·We had the element of surprise in the first round," Alexander told correspondents. "We won it. The second round now is on, wilh the Germans having gathered their forces in an effort to drive us off the beachhead, "That round is more than half over. Rather, I should say nearly over, and we are winning it." During his tour of the beach- hejad, Alexander conferred with both American and British generals, as well as doughboys and and officers in the field." | He said he was surprised at the amount of "rubbish" he had been reading about the Anzio beachhead, but was sure before cominr here that he would not find conditions the way they had been depicted. He emphasized that lie found both the American and British forces 'in fighting spirit and high morale, and was pleased that they had killed so many Germans. "I knew the morale of the fighting forces in this beachhead would be strong," he said in describing his tour, part of it under shell fire, "but it was a pleasure to see the confirmation of this spirit which I knew existed. In fact 1 want to say that I find tiie morale and confidence extremely high. It was a pleasure to meet the men and ufifcers in the field." Mrs. Stephen W.
