MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 9 ·1937 .FIVE LONG TALKS ON SERVICE CLUBS Gives Review of Business Men's Groups as KGLO Forum Feature. Speaking of service clubs, their accomplishments, purposes and place under the sun, no one in Mason City can speak with move authority on the subject than Dr. W. E. Long, who presented a service club review on the North Iowa Forum program over f station KGLO Monday evening. Dr. Long is a former Cerro Gordo county coroner and later was county representative in the state legislature. He is a past president of the Khvanis club and has occupied other important positions in the civic life of the community. Traces Progress of Clubs. After recalling that service organizations were merely luncheon chats in the beginning, the speaker traced the progress of these clubs, through the years until today, he said, a busy club Is a vital force in the community. All service clubs today are keen to adhere to their objectives as carried out in various committees, he added, pointing out that the primary committees through which a club functioned were: Public affairs, boys'' and girls' work, boy \ scout work, membership, finance, inter-club relations, music, helping under-privileged children, vocational guidance, attendance, etc. By aiming to give a good cross section of various business activities in a community, their personnel consists of a classification that represents not more than two in the same kind of business or profession. Quotes David Lawrence. Pointing to a statement recently made by David Lawrence, famous editor and newspaper correspondent, following a trip through various sections of the United States, Mr. Long quoted the journalist as follows: "Are we developing leaders? I am convinced that we are. The ingredients of leadership are to be found in civic and trade organizations. I am more and more impressed with the work the service clubs are doing in the United · States. I refer particularly to the .Rotary, the Kiwanis and the Lions clubs . . . I have attended service club luncheons from coast to coast in my journeys during the last quarter century . . . and found them the best instrument for the development of an awakened social responsibility that we have ever devised . . . Too few people realize the many fine charities and benefactions that come from these service organizations. . . . More than any other single influence, I believe the growth of'com- munity life in America recently along better lines can be attributed to the quiet and unobtrusive zeal of American service clubs." Encourage Golden Rule. Dr. Long commented that service clubs have a setup of objectives that fit so well into a living role along constructive lines and therefore help in many ways. "These objectives," he said, "encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships 'and promote the application of higher business and professional standards." He added that the genera! activities of a club are likened to a university extension course, broadening the horizon of all its members, and in it all there is an abiding faith that makes service clubs endure. Asserting that the progress of service clubs was based largely on friendship, Dr. Long concluded his message by reading Edgar Guest's poem entitled "Friends."
