(Lock photo, Kayenay engraving) Cables to and From Prisoners in Germany Sent by Red Cross j Cerro Gordo Residents Use War Service Several Cerro Gordo countv families who hart not heard from soldier-relatives in German prison camps have availed themselves during the last year of the Red Cross cable facilities to establish- communication with them. \ The service is one of many which the American Red Cross has taken on as 'part of its numerous worldwide war activities, the expenses oE which are met by the annual war fund campaign which is scheduled for March this year. The Cerro Gordo chapter quota is 5al,500 of the national S20D,flDO,000 goal. In some cases months elapse be- Iwecn receipt of official notification that sons or husbands are in enemy hands and arrival of letters :rom the prisoners, it was pointed out. Red Cross cables are now be- ins used to help allay the worries that mount with such delays, and to provide a. link between distraught families and prisoners of war in the European theater of war. Transfer of prisoners from temporary to s permanent camps, or :heir removal to hospitals when 11 or wounded, at times tresulls in delays in notifying their families o£ correct addresses. International agreement now permits the Red Cross to send and receive emer- Jency cables regarding the welfare of men in enemy hands: Such emergency communica- ions already average more than 2,000 a month, according to reports received from Red Cross chapters in this country. The num- )er of such cables depends upon each new turn of events in war zones. In one case recently reported, a prisoner of war was transferred to several different camps. Each ime he would notify his family of he new address, but mails were so slow, that by the time his fam- ly learned of an address chanse, le had been moved to another ·amp. This meant that while his "amily heard from him, letters rom them had not caught up lo him. He became so worried and anx- ous over not having heard from lome, that he appealed to the Red Cross to find out why he had not ;ot letters from his'family. The Red Cross found out that he was ne camp ahead of the last ad- ress his family had received. 'hrough cablegrams, the Red Cross was able to transmit the oldier's correct address to his amily. Regular postal channels arc pen for families to use in writing lusbauds and .sons who have been aken prisoner. Only in cases of xtreme emergency at home, or vhen prisoners have been report- d wounded or seriously ill. or vhen prisoners and their families re unabtc to Ret in touch with ach other through rej-ular mail ervice does the Red Cross make Is cable facililics available (o hem. For security reasons, cable mes- agcs sent by the Red Cross in chalt ot prisoners or their fami- ics must be straightforward. They annot mention business activities r have numbers, codes or sym- ols iri them. Emergency cables can be sent ilher from prisoners or from their amilies.

FOR WAR PRISONERS-One of the most important and most appreciated of the many war activities earned- on in all parts of the globe by the American Red Cross is the sending of. parcels for war prisoners. A corner of the Prisoner of War food packaging center in Chicago is shown in the picture. On a conveyor system by mass production methods, thousands of parcels are packed each week for shipment. Three other centers also are operated in the United States by the Red Cross.

NEED "ECONOMY OF ABUNDANCE" FOR PROSPERITY Farm Editor Reports on National Farm Institute at Des Moines "Unquestionably, the outstanding impression of the National Farm Institute was the almost complete agreement of the speakers on one thing: The farmer as well as the rest ot the United States ·will be prosperous when the war ends only if our national economy is based on maximum production: In other words, we must.have an economy of abundance," said Thor J. Jensen, farm editor of the Globe-Gazette, on the KGLO F o r u m Thursday night. The talk was a report of the meeting of the National F a r m Institute in Des Moines last weekend. Mr. Jensen said that one of the outstanding speakers on the program,'O. B. Jesness, professor o£ agricultural economics at the University o£ Minnesota, pointed out that the farmer is not interested so much in wage levels as he is in "total income levels. "His Idea that 'total income levels' are the important thing is, of course, just another way of saying that we must have an econ- omy of abundance," Sir. Jensen said. The reporter said that Morris Sayre, executive vice president of the Corn Products Refining company of Clinton, put it this way: "We must reduce the cost, improve the quality and glamorize the product, as one farmer said about spinach." He added, and others expressed the same idea, that "agriculture, labor and industry must get along better with each other--and with less bureaucratic direction." James L. Palmer, on leave of absence from Chicago university to act as community chairman foi- the Chicago Committee for Economic Development, was particularly clever in discussing the other side of the co-operation picture. "lie didn't ask the question quite so bluntly," Mr. Jensen said, "but it boiled down to this: 'If the farmer should have floors and ceilings, why shouldn't Hie coal miner? 1 And, he wanted to know if the present government assistance or Interference--choose your own term--in the field or agriculture might not be approaching regimentation." The reporter said that Prof. Palmer made one unique suggestion: "We should have a moratorium on phrases which have become synonymous with selfish pressure groups." He named some of them as "big business, organized labor, the farmer bloc, bureaucracy." "Just the sound of them makes people angry so let's stop using them," Mr Jensen quoted him.
