M. C. A. Tuesday evening. Evron Karges, boys work director for the Y. M. C. A., called attention to posters placed around the walls of the room, which he said were used to get members interested in boys of other countries. "The Y. M. C. A. operates in 69 countries and has 10,000 plants," Mr. Karges stated. "Our job" in these foreign countries is to help others help themselves." "Eighteen international camps will be held this year in 18 different countries. Tours are being organized to visit these camps." Talks on Service Clubs \ The part played by service clubs in international good will was pointed out by Roger Patton. While probably not so influential in world brotherhood as the Y. M. C. A. and missions, the service clubs exert a tremendous influence for world peace and understanding, he said. "The one ray of hope in the world situation today," he added, "is the fact that members of these clubs in other countries will provide the leadership for better things. This is important when we realize that as a rule 95 per cent of the people are led by the other o per cent. Of that 5 per cent only a fraction provides the real leadership." On "Peace Memorials" Miss Velma Baker talked on 'Peace Memorials," pointed out Hobby Entries Show Aviation Interest Mason City's interest in aviation is reflected in the airplane entries at the boys' hobby show at the Y.
