LOVE IS THE "E*E OF THE SOUL" - · . let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. Head I John 3:16-21. This passage, supreme in its insights, bears directly upon this whole matter of conscience and duty. How can one be sure of duty in a world like ours with all its cross currents oE interest, prejudice and passion. There is one safe rule in any perplexity about right and wrong. Whatever hurts other people, really hurts them in the quality, character and true well-being of their lives is wrong. Whatever makes ill will effective and destructive is wrong. Whatever helps other people, really helps them by these same tests is right. Whatever makes good will effective and creative is right. Love is the only sure guide. Its j u d g m e n t s and discern- ments are blessedly sure. Love sits by divine right upon the highest throne. Submit conduct to duty, duty to conscience, make love the lord of conscience and the high road of life will lead to goodness and to God. Prayer: Oh Love that will not let us go, forbid that in any extremity we should let go of Jove vince love is born of Thee and cannot rest save in Thee. When heavy- laden it feels no burden, when perplexed it knows where the light is. Whosoever loveth know- eth Thy nearness and shareth Thy spirit. Lord of love established us in love. In His Name in Whom Thy love became flesh and dwelt among us. Amen. Picture of the Week OPEN WIDER, PLEASE!

The contest is open to all ama- o ".pny. ~~. u iJi.u^.ci?aui me L/UI preliminary steps to the making of the print, the final and crowning goal. Each of the steps in taking the picture and developing tile film must be carried out with the final print in mind and although the success or failure of print depends on the quality of the work that goes before it, the print alone is what matters. The print shows up the success or failure o£ the photographer in his choice of subject, its arrangement, exposure, and development of the film. The print alone serves as the medium for conveying to others both the subject itself and the photographer's interpretation of it. Printing is the process of setting forth the picture in its final form and is every bit as important as the actual taking of the picture. -·Will Be Improved The serious worker in. his hobby of photography will find out sooner or later that to procure the exact print he had in mind when he took the picture he should do his own enlarging. Moreover he will most likely find that his picture will be improved by using teur photographers in North Iowa and southern Minnesota and the entire field of photography can be utilized. Of late there has been a predominance of child and dog pictures. Here are some of the other fields: Action pictures. Landscapes. Portraits. Industrial pictures show-in? men and women at work. Pictures appropriate to certain days such as St. Patrick's day. Still life pictures. Street scenes. Be sure to send both print and negative or film.

To pi-ocure the best possible prints from his negatives the amateur will find an enlarger an essential part of his equipment. Enlarging his own pictures makes a es a completed picture truly his own to work and adds immeasurably the pleasure of photography. Takes Little More Time From a practical standpoint, enlarging takes but little more time than contact printing and is no more difficult. There are hundreds of enlargers on the market and the person interested in getting the most out of his hobby is sure to find one that will meet his needs and the limitations of his pocketbook. Any good little picture will make a better big one. The transition. from a small print to a large one that brightens some wall in your home or office is an extremely interesting one. Big prints and the real pleasure from making them recommend enlarging to every serious worker as a logical step in the mastery of his hobby. JUNIOR COLLEGE WILL BE SUBJECT FOR ROUNDTABLE Third Educational Forum Will Be Held Monday Night at Y.M.

They are Art Fishbeck, Howard Dresser. Yvonne McGrane and Harold Baizes. Mr. Olson will preside at the "meeting. In view of the increasing attendance at the first two round table discussions, the committee in charge predicted a record crowd at the third session. The meeting will be held in the Hi-Y room of the Y. M. C. A. and the series of four discussions are under the sponsorship of the Jolly Time club. The next and final forum will be held April 3 on the topic, "Does Mason City Need Vocational EdQcation?" LEGISLATOR HAS FOUR RULES FOR PUBLIC THOUGHT Representative of Mitchell County in Message on KGLO Pour commandments for more efficient legislation were presented on the North Iowa Forum over KGLO Friday evening by H F. Risse of Mitchell--a legislative philosophy based on liis experience as Mitchell county representative in the house. The commandments were: (1) Select able lawmakers, (2) Fight to retain tiie democratic form o] government, (3) Distinguish between NEED and SUBSIDY, and (4) Pay more attention to human stock and less to mere things. High Caliber Men "No legislation," said Representative Mitchell, "can be any better than the personalities back of it,' as he pleaded lor voters to send high caliber men to the general assembly. The speaker declared that legislators should not be judged merely on the way they vote on a particular measure, but r a t h e r whether the type of voting reflects honest and representative convictions. Next, the speaker pleaded for fixity and retention of the present form of government, insisting that the present democracy can be maintained only with the exercise or painful effort and exercise of good judgment. Stresses Local Government I believe in centralization where responsibility is fixed" avered the Mitchell county man, but a centralization that removes the local unit from the seat of government shall I bitterly OD- pose." v In his third commandment, Mr. Risse declared that legislation should be justified in accordance with a graduation that recognized need. Askins for It "Am I right," asked the speaker, .when I say that we are living in a day when we are developing a type o£ citizen who is becoming too govemmentally dependent? Let it be remembered that when we ask the government to do too many things for us we are inviting it to do too many things to us/' It was the fourth commandment, "bearing the message of America's future," that drew major attention from the legislator. "What are ive today when we learn, that American stock is being perpetuated by the less fit in proportion of a ration of 6 to 1? Visits Institutions "During the past few weeks it has been my part to \'isit a goodly number of our state institutions in which we have housed a conglomerate mass of human beings, numbering some lo.OOO. In one o£ our penal institutions I saw the marching of 2,416 feet bearing the bodies of 1,208 ashen faced youths who are doomed to a life of imprisonment. In commenting upon these inmates the warden said that 81 per cent of these young men are of low mental caliber. "In another institution a nurse stood before the crib of an infant with these words, 'This child was born out of wedlock to a socially diseased mother.' And stilt in another institution the superintendent pointing to a ruggedly built man said: 'This man tried to kill his wife with a hammer and in tracing his family history, I learn that there are five mentally deficient relatives in this institution.' Important Challenge 'These are but fe\v cases of the many and confront us. with a question that'we must answer. It must be our decision whether we will answer it through legislative enactment and enforcement of law or follow the laizze faire theory and reap the harvest of continued misery and woe and the conversion of a rugged American stock into that of the mentally, morally and physically unfit "Every patriotic American citizen should concern himself with this question as the very perpetuity of our country deepnds upon right action- Let us pay more attention to human stock and less to mere things. We have a sterilization law--what shall we do wih it? 'I would like to launch a campaign that within the next two years the citizens ot Iowa either directly or indirectly see the kind of life that Exists within our institutions and couple their seeing with action and what a different | gauge in legislation the forty- ninth would have to go by. The state would take on new interests in human famiiy and indorse legislation that would completely revolutionize our present cumbersome plan of lawmaking and law enforcing." Legion Stag Parly at Osage March 28 An American Legion stag party will be held at Osage March 28 for the purpose of discussing the fourth district junior baseball situation, R. C. Patrick, fourth district commander, announces. The meeting will be one of a series of three held in the district. Legionnaires from four countie~ Cerro Gordo, Worth.
