-.5 ,, Thursday, F«b. 24, 1844 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE U TH D* X.» Finns Will Quit If "Acceptable" Terms Are Given By UniUd Press Finland will withdraw from the war "immediately" if acceptable peace terms are offered by Rus- »ia, Finance Minister Vaino Tanner said Thursday, according to a Finnish home radio broadcast recorded by U. S. government monitors. "If peace terms are impossible, we shall fight on with clenched teeth and await what the future holds in store," Tanner was quoted as saying in an interview with the · Swedish newspaper Tid- ningen. "It terms are acceptable, we shall accept them immediately." Tanner stated, however, that Finland does not consider her present position "hopeless," and asserted that Russia would not benefit by occupying Finland. "Sabotage and'guerrilla activities in Finland would be 100 per cent worse than in Denmark and Norway," he said. 5:3» p. m. C.ll JM « r U* CLEAR LAKE GLOBE-GAZETTE Pb«U« 239 or 259 · .

Obviously aimed at boosting the morale of the mud-sluggers who have btta wondering where the airmen tot all their medals, the new decoration does the job properly--it takes precedence over the air medal, and also over the purple heart. It can be awarded. Acting Secretary of War Patterson disclosed, to anyone in the army, navy, marine corps or coast guard who distinguishes himself "by heroic or meritorious achievement or service, not involving participation in aerial flight." It can be won in combat, or with actions in direct support of combat operations, and--says the army--"it is expected that members of the army ground forces particularly infantrymen, may lead the eligibility lists." Airmen may win the bronze star, too but not in the air. _ The army now has 10 decorations for individual citations. In " precedence, they are: Medal of Honor called .Congressional (popularly Medal of Honor}', lor extraordinary heroism 1H action "ah«vf a«V7 Vintm*..! * u _ DONATES SI ,000 TO LAKE FUND Post Contributes Sum for Soldier Memorial Clear Lake--Stafford Post No 222, American Legion, voted a donation of $1,000 to the Soldiers- Memorial fund at its regular dinner session at Legion hall Wednesday evening.
