He gave the second in a series of 3 talks being presented on the Fofum in observance of Brotherhood Week. The general subject of all 3 presentations is "Brotherhood or Chaos." Rabbi Herson said that because of exchanges of ideas and cultures there is a great body of common ideals shared by Jew and Christian alike, where the difference is merely one of entity and not of quality. "The nazi onsalught on western civilization has focussed attention upon the common fund of aspirations that constitute the Judeo- Christiaii tradition, which alone stands between mankind and savagery." he said. The rabbi continued by saying that in this country much has been done for the attainments ot a peaceful relation between various groups. "Without a working fellowship, the America of today would not be in existence. It is precisely that fellowship, understanding a n d brotherly love and the co-opera- tlon between the many religious faiths that has made America what it is today," he continued. It was stated that on the fighting fronts the men do not inquire as to the respective beliefs of their brothers. "They all share dangers and share them alike. Religious or other differences are entirely forgotten. They only feel that there is a task to be completed, a job to be done," Rabbi Herson said. World planning for brotherhood is essential, if the flowering of freedom afler the war is to be achieved, he said. Military success alone will not bring it, he continued. "Too often a tough core of super- nationalism results from a prolonged conflict such as this war. Exaggerated nationalism is the mother of intolerance, false pride and arrogance," he said. "Christianity is international; Judaism is international and so is brotherhood. Let us not, then, shy away from the one thing that can help nations beat their swords into plowshares," Kabbi Herson concluded. Lt. Arthur L.

Clark, 308 20th S. E., has been missing in action over France since Feb. 6, according to word received from the war department. The pilot of the bomber which followed Lt. Clark's on the raid has written to the Mason City parents that they had already dumped ^their bomb loads on the target and were pulling away for home when he saw a direct hit by flak on Lt. Clark's ship. They were flying above the clouds at the time, the officer wrote, so he did not see whether Lt. Clark's fort crashed. The Mason Cityan arrived in England late in November and had been on a number of missions, according to letters received"' LT. ARTHUR L. CLARK by his parents. He wrote in his last letter that he did not mind the enemy figrnter plane attacks but rather got a thrill out ot them because his gunners took good care of them. He admitted, however, that he did not like the flak. Lt. Clark was graduated from the Mason City schools and worked as a mechanic here before joining the air corps. He entered service in October, 1941, and re- ceived his wings as a fighter pilot from Spence field, Moultrie Ga in May, 1943. ' From there he went to Tallahassee, Fla.. where he qualified as a thunderbolt fighter pilot but upon graduation was one of 28 chosen from his squadron for (raining as a flying fortress pilot. He completed bis bomber pilot training at Kearney, Nebr.. last November. Borghild Dahl Life Story, "I Wanted to See," Published Mason Cityans in Her Classes; Concealed Fact She Was Blind Residents of Mason City will be interested in Borghild Dahl's autobiography, "I Wanted to See," published by Macmillan on Tuesday. ( It is a story of great human interest and amazing courage, with a foreward by Doctor -William L. Benedict, head of the department of ophthalmology at the Mayo clinic. The Rev. Alvin N. Rogness of the Trinity Lutheran church here and Mrs. Ro^ness were both students of Miss Dahl's at Augustana college in Sioux Falls, S. Dik.. as was Miss Ida Rorem. branch secretary of the Lutheran Welfare society here. * Miss Dahl was born of Norwegian parents in Minneapolis 53 years ago, was graduated from the public schools there, and received her A. B. from the University of Minnesota. She was awarded a master's degree from Columbia university. She won u fellowship for a year's study in Norway, awarded by the American Scandinavian Foundation, has visited most of the states in this country and Sweden, England and Scotland as well. She has spent her life overcoming a handicap arid concealing the fact that she was, for all practical purposes, blind. It is significant of her success that during her 25 years of teaching most of her students had no idea that she was nearly blind. As Doctor Benedict says: "Only in her later years has she been able to sec- the bricks in walls and leaves on trees. . . Miss Dahl clearly tells her readers how success was won in spite of blindness." At present she is living in New York, writing, tutoring and getting back her strength after her last eye operation last summer. BORGHILD DAHL C. W.
