"These boys will know when the war is over that it wasn't all dark--all hatred. They will know there were spots where their faith in humanity was restored, where they became eager to live again. These spots in the main on the battlefields were punctuated by the banner emblazoned with the Hed Cross. "By donating to the Red Cross you are having a chance to participate in the redemption of the bodies and spirits of war worn men. We should be proud and eager and grateful for the privilege of sharing in it." In speaking of the manner in which the Red Cross raises its funds through solicitation, Mr. Rogness said, "We ought to be proud of the democracy of Red Cross financing. You are selling the finest product of a nation to people who can buy. Instead of a Red Cross drive it should be a problem of taking care of a line waiting to pay money. Never in the history of the country has the name of the Red Cross been as high as now." C. E. Leffler, Mason City chairman of the campaign, presided at the meeting. Paul Pritchard. general chairman for the county of the Red Cross war fund campaign, told of this year's needs and the county's Red Cross quota, which has been set at $51,500, an increase of only 21 per cent, whereas the national quota of $200.000,- ieuding may get advice on problems which cropped up during last season's work, L. C. Grove, Ames, horticulture expert of the lows State college extension service, discussed some of the problems and improper procedures which had shown up during the a recent survey throughout state. He emphasized particularly the need for early planning of the garden on paper even before seed is ordered. Gardeners who wish their ground plowed this spring, as well as those with plowing equipment, were urged to telephone at once to the plowing exchange. No. 1100. "There is going to be a definite shortage of this spring plowing equipment declared Chairman Charles F. Weaver. "We must get the plowmen routed so that they will waste as little time as possible between jobs. Too few gardens were plowed last fall and even those must be disced and harrowed this spring. 11 POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT 1 wish to announce that 1 am a candidate for State Representative, Republican ticket- Primary election June 5, 1944.

Gordon-Lennox Believes Job to Be Done in '44 The big invasion of fortress Em-ope will come when the American and British high command is satisfied that we have achieved complete mastery over the l u f t w a f f c , Victor Gordon-Lennox, Chicago Daily News London correspondent, told the Lions club at the Grocn Milt* Wednesday noon. The London newspaperman ascribed to air power the key role in this war. "My feeling is that if air power is given a chance U can attain sufficient success in blasting German production and lowering the morale so that our ground forces can achieve the invasion wilh reasonable casualties," the speaker stated. \Vfien British and American bombers can reach this goal is still a conj e c t lire, he said, but if Eiscnhow e r, Tedder.

" I h o p e that General E is e nhower will be given full f r e e d o m , t o Gordon-Lennox choose the date and will not be rushed into premature action because ot public pressure," he added. "But even if there are do- lays I feel thai it is still possible to do the job this year." It was the opinion of Mr. Gor- don-Leimox that somewhere alone the line it will be possible "to break the heart" of Germany bj ceaseless bombing, smashing her productivity and getting her transportation into such tangles tha t will lie impossible or dlfficul :o move men and supplies up to OCCUPATIONAL and TERMINAL TRAINING The nation's greatest need is for trained men and women.

Mr. Leffler told his workers to "Sell Red Cross on its service merits--for its service to the armed forces, It blood donor service, its aid to prisoners of war, its enrollment of army nurses, its nurses aid and surgical dressing work, and its humanitarian work In time of war." Instructions to workers were given out by IVIr. Dwyer and a moving picture, "At His Side" was presented. Invocation was asked ; by Hahbi David Herson. Music hy high school students preceded the meeting. The membership campaign was on following the meeting, with many present making their subscriptions to start the drive. Early Thursday morning the Red Cross flags were displayed in the business section of the city denoting the campaign was on. Not as many flags were available as had been hoped for. however, according to the committee in charge, because of a shortage of material. he front. "It is then expected that tin crust of defenses will be thir enough so they can be broke through," he added. "We have pretty good idea of the depth o these defenses. We know tha joing against them with German at their present morale would h a bloody business."

Helps Service Men By congressional charter (1905) the American Red Cross assumes the duty in time of war of acting as "medium of communication between the people of the United States and their army and navy." That means bringing information concerning the welfare of his home folks to the man at the front, and sending word from him back home. Under certain conditions the Red Cross is prepared to extend financial assistance to the 'families of service men. This is only one of the many services of the American Red Cross.
