'·Freedom loving Americans can contribute much and should. I think, contribute much to maintaining the peace that will be won by our soldiers." he said. The impression that there is much disunity in a democracy is a mistaken view, the speaker said. "In America, the contribution of every citizen not only to thc work to be done but to policies to be enforced is expected.'' Mr. Clough added. -There is necessarily an appearance of argument on many questions, but. if examined, thc argument usually is a competition for thc finding of the best possible solution to the problem."

G. H. BAMFORD Truth vs. Fiction Truth is too strange for fiction. That is what Winifred Inglis Baumgartner of Mason City learned when she wrote the story "Glory Keeps 'Em Flying," which you may read in the January issue of Child Life, currently at local news stands. The story revolves about the theme of providing feed for birds during snowy winters and reaches a climax when a blizzard blankets the usual feeding places and makes feeding a critical problem. This climax, however, wasn't the ne Mrs. Baumgartner first wrote into the story she submitted to Child Life. What she originally wrote was drawn from real experience of the Joe Holub family, 540 Eleventh street northeast, but the editors thought it too fantastic to be believed. The Holub family has for years been interested in birds and methods o£ feeding them through the long winter months. One winter a heavy crust of now covered their usual drinking containers and Lucille, the daughter, conceived of the idea of putting a shallow pan of water out for the birds. The temperature was down toward the zero mark so the girl filled the pan with warm water in the belief that it would keep from freezing for a longer period. The final game of the evening will bring together Bud Rae's Cubs and Jim Nettleton's Indians. The regular Hi-Y meetings will also be resumed with Evvon M. Karges the guest speaker. His topic will be "Some Hi-Y Fellows I Have Known." Barr Peterson will take enrollments for the Hi-Y victory defense corps groups, while Olin Storvick, program chairman, will announce the Hi-Y program for the remainder of the season. WEILAND INFANT MAY BE FIRST Child Born at Mercy New Year's Night A daughter weighing 7 pounds 14 ounces, born to Mr. and Mrs. Richard Weiland, Britt, at the Mercy hospital at 8:26 o'clock New Year's night, was the first baby born within the limits of Mason City in 1943, so far as the Globe- Gazette reporters had found Saturday. Official announcement of the winner of gifts to be presented to the first baby of 1943 by Mason City merchants will not be made until the records are in the Cerro Gordo county courthouse next Wednesday, but the Weiland in fant is leading the pace by a widi margin. In fact she was' the only child reported born in Mason City on New Year's day. She is not the first child in the family, but she will be one of the most "gifted" of them all. Her parents are farm- ers'near Britt. Several others came close to the winning- day. A son weighing 7 pounds 15 ounces was bom to Mr and Mrs. W. C. Hanson. Klemme', at the Mercy hospital on Dec. 31. A son weighing 7 pounds lD~i ounces was born to Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Kennan, 223 Hampshire avenue northeast, at the Park hospital Saturday morning. * * * The first baby will be credited with S3 worth o£ Betsy Ross Vitamin D bread, to be purchased from the parents' grocer; S2 in laundry work by the Ideal American and Zoric Dry Cleaners; an 8 by 10 hand painted photograph from the Russell studio. The Carl Grupp Food Shop will give $2 credit for baby food; the P.

Thc gift, announced by the Tournament of Roses Association, the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate conference, the University of Georgia and the University of California at Los Angeles, was accepted in a telegram from Norman H. Davis, Red Cross chairman, in Washington. MRS. BAUMGARTNER --"Truth Too Strange" * When the Ilolubs an hour or two later returned from a trip, they found some 15 birds standing utterly motionless in the pan. The birds found the water so inviting they had taken a bath and their wings had frozen to their bodies. * Mr. Holub lifted the pan into the basement and slowly the birds were fhawed out and when dry allowed to return to their outdoor habitat, apparently none the worse for their experience. This was the incident Mrs. Baumgartner wrote into her story. She pictured the children in the family looking through a.basement window, watching the birds revive. But editors of Child Life, in asking Mrs. Baumgartner to revise her story, inferred that not only was it too farfetched to believe, but,that it might put wrong ideas info the heads of child readers. "SS Her story is attractively illustrated by Bruce Adams. * "Are you a Baptist?" is a common question asked by First Baptist church members of each minister filling thc pulpit--that is ever since the Presbyterians used the Baptist church to Ir.v out one of their candidates. * Tent in Battle The tag on an army tent, made in Mason City, found its way back from taroff Australian battle fields the other day and has now been placed in a frame and hung on the wall ot the Mason City Tent.

Both of the men were praised 'for extraordinary heroism and courageous devotion to duty while- piloting airplanes of a torpedo squadron in action against Japanese forces in the battle o£ Mid- ivay." "Participating in a vigorous and intensive assault against the Japanese invasion fleet, both men aressed home their attack with relentless determination in the face of a terrific barrage ot anti-air- " craft fire," thc citation added. _"The unprecedented conditions under which the squadron launched its offensive were so exceptional that it is highly improbable the occasion may ever recur where other pilots of the service will be called upon to demonstrate an equal degree of gallantry and fortitude." Ensign Smith, who was born May 12, 1903, at South Wayne, · Wis., enlisted in the navy in 1919 and received his wings at Pensacola in 1927.

Dr. Pepin submitted as substantiating evidence a copy of the Christmas menu, done up with hand colored decorations and including this array of food: Shrimp cocktail, olives, celery, sweet pickles, roast Canadian goose, club sausage, cranberry jelly, snow flaked potatoes, fresh green lima beans and corn, buttered cauliflower, avacado salad, plum pudding with hard, sauce, fresh blackberry pie, ice cream, parkerhousc rolls, roquefort cheese, crackers, coffee, candy, mixed nuts. * Mr. and airs. A. T. Anderson of Mason City, wintering in Phoenix, Ariz., have an open door for Mason City soldiers in that area. They inform the Globe-Gazette they will entertain any of the boys from here who will get in touch with them. Mr. Anderson sent along a front page of the Arizona Independent Republic, which ruled all war news from the front page Christmas day--"just for relief." The Andersons' address is KS, Box 116, Fheonix, Ariz. * The Mountains Wait' This theme paragraph o[ Theodor Broth's book, "The Mountains Wait" expresses the thought of many a Norseman waiting to return to Norway's rugged fjords: "Now strangers have taken over our iand. They would loot it clean before we returned. But the country. itseU they could not spoil. The seas and fjords and the mountains --to these we alone could give life. We were coming back. Thc mountains would wait for us." Broch, young mayor of Narvik at the time the German barbarians conquered his country, has appeared before audiences at Waverly and other Iowa and middle west points. * ' Last week an editorial writer on the Waterloo Daily Courier wrole: "One of thc strangest contradictions of thc office of defense transportation's truck-conservation program locally was the fact that the nearest office was located in Mason City. It was ridiculous that truckers should be forced to drive to Mason City, wasting gasoline and tires to conduct business .that could be transacted by personal contaci." It can now be stated, however, that Waterloo is happy. A branch office of the ODT has been established there. Gliders are generally of wood frame construction. SPECIAL (WHILE IT LASTS) Clean III.
