MOULTON $6,000 CRUSADE QUOTA ACCEPTED BY METHODISTS Planning Conference Held at Local Church With 200 Attending Climaxing Tuesday evening's planning conference at the First Methodist church, attended by more lhan 200, was the acceptance by the official board of $6,000 as the share of First Church in Methodism's $25,000,000 crusade tor Christ. The local church proclaims its definite commitment to the impassioned challenges of the crusade launched by the general conference in May, 1944. The action taken is direct testimony that members have caught the spirit and, together with 8,000,000 other Methodist crusaders across the nation, are moving forward to develop to its fullest the 4 year postwar program planned. Doctor Earle A.; Baker, district superintendent, who presided, explained the S major spearheads of the movement: 1. A new world order; 2. World relief and reconstruction; 3, Evangelism; 4, Stewardship; 5, and church school advancement. "These are not 5 disjointed causes," declared Doctor -Baker. "They are linkefd together like the fingers on a hand. The thumb should be 'Evangelism' because it comes to a point of contact with all the fingers, enabling each in its turn to take a firmer grip." A panel headed by M. E. Olson emphasized the broadening scope of First Church's program. Participants in the discussion were Dr. T. E. Davidson, church school superintendent; F. C. Heneman, teacher of Junior and seniors boys, and Gilbert Bovard, president of Senior Youth Fellowship, all of whom pictured the results which are being achieved in "selling" the church school program, and outlined goals which have been established in the church school and youth fellowship areas. Mrs. W. D. Thrams, church librarian, appraised certain books and" magazines of informative and devotional nature, available at the book table in the church foyer, or in the church library. Espousing the cause of missions was Mrs. Harold W. Morgan, secretary of missionary education in the Woman's society, who reported 5350 in the society's budget for the crusade. Erdix Swift presented a recommendation of the Board of Missions, which resulted in acceptance of the $6,000 Crusade quota. "Highlights of 1B44" included highly favorable financial reports presented by Ira Stinson, H. W. Barker- and Judge W. P. Butler. Mrs. H. L. Wright, president of the Woman's Society, reported increase in membership of 111, and stated the 1945 budget had been increased $1,000 over 1944. She proposed these rules for the 1945 Victory Garden,'released in the current issue of the Upper Iowa Conference News Reel: "First--Plant 5 rows of P's: Presence, Promptness, Preparation, Perseverance and Purity. Next, to these, plant 3 rows of squash: Squash gossip, squash criticism, squash indifference. Then, 4 rows of lettuce: Let as be unselfish and loyal; Let ns be true to obligations; Let us obey rules and regulations; Let us love one another. No Gar- The Rev. M.K. Moulton of Los Angeles Here Until Sunday Night Special services were to begin Wednesday night at the Church of the Nazarene, 331 West State at Madison, with the Rev. M.

Recommendation f r o m t h e Board of Missions," presented by Mrs. W. J. Maytham, chairman, resulted in acceptance of a - $4,40C minimum to World Service, over and above the Crusade quota. Doctor M. B. Kober, in an analysis on "The Direction of our Marching," summarized certain encouraging and gratifying trends in local church activities. In a moment of consecration at the altar he called upon his audience to join him in a resolution for more religious living and for the building of a consecrated, spiritual life which shall prove adequate for the living of these days. Preceding the conference a fellowship ' dinner took place in the social rooms, at which Charles Cornwell presided, with Lester Milligan at the piano, and the Rev. A. W. Gauger voicing a prayer of thanksgiving. F.H.A. REAL ESTATE LOANS FIRST NATIONAL BANK OPA Collects $200,000 From Ration Violators in 64-County District NEW BLOOD PLASMA DEDICATION LABEL--In response to many requests, the Red Cross label on the standard army-navy package of blood plasma has been redesigned so donors may dedicate their blood in honor of a- friend or loved one in the armed forces. The inscription goes on the label as shown above. One label may be filled out for each blood donation made by residents of this community during the Feb. 5 to 9 visit of the St. Paul mobile unit in Mason City. ' Donors May Dedicate Blood to Anyone in Armed Forces New Plan in Effect for Visit of Mobile Unit Here Feb. 5-9 Mason Cityans and residents of Cerro Gordo county will have an opportunity to dedicate a pint of blood to someone in »the armed forces- during the visit of the St. Paul Hed Cross mobile blood donor unit here the week of Feb. 5 to 9. Announcement 'of the new plan was made here Wednesday by Mrs. Floyd Johnson, chairman of the local plasma campaign. Each donor will be given a label on which he may write his own name and the name of the service nun or woman in whose honor the donation was made, Mrs. Johnson explained. The labels will be pasted on the outside of standard army-navy packages of plasma for shipment overseas. The plan was adopted by the American Hed Cross plasma service at the request of friends and r e l a t i v e s of servicemen, who wished to- give their blood' in honor of their fighting men, Mrs. Johnson said. She . pointed out that in the processing laboratories p l a s m a from many donors is mixed and that the plasma in the package on. which the donor's inscribed label is pasted may not necessarily contain any of the plasma procured from that particular donor's own blood. But the label is symbolic of the donor's gift--which might be the gift of life to a badly-wounded man. Inscribing a label in someone's honor does not mean that the donor's blood goes directly to that person, she added, as plasma is not shipped to individuals but to army and navy medical officers who administer it to any wounded men who may need it, often in the front lines. Mrs. Johnson reported that requests for appointments for blood donations still are being received at the Red Cross office, 19 1 /!; N. Federal, but that a few more are needed. Specifications for prospective donors. include the following: Donors must be between 18 and 60 (those under Zl must have parental consent); they must weigh at least 110 pounds; 10 weeks must have elapsed since the last donation; persons with diabetes, tuberculosis, convulsions, colds or any acute or chronic illness or disability are not acceptable; donors should wait at least 6 months following a major operation and 3 months after a tonsillectomy. Persons eligible under, these conditions are asked to call Red Cross headquarters. They will be Dr.Fankhauser,D.C. HEALTH COUNSELOR S W. State St. Wtlr BH C . Men-.

OPA NEWS-- More than $200,000 was paid into the United States treasury in 1944 as a result of enforcement steps taken against violators ot OPA rationing, price ceiling and rent control regulations in the Des Moines district of 64 Iowa counties, it has been reported by Walter D. Kline, director. The exact amount of the payments was S217 010.81. Violators of food regulations headed the list of those making payments? their total being $162,116.05. Payments were made in sther classes of violations, as follows: Industrial materials, $18,204.97; rent control, $12,079.34; services, $9,316.71; trucks, $7,871.80; fuel, $4,582.46; consumers' durable goods, $1,693.31; wearing apparel, $646.01, and automobiles and tires, $493.16. In announcing information from the report to him by George E. O'Malley, district enforcement attorney, Kline declared "the record is commendable from every standpoint but we shall never lose sight of our firm determination to emphasize compliance in preference to enforcement." Besides collections, O'Malley reported that operations in his division the pats year included: 2,713 investigations in which 2,218 violations were found; 97 court injunctions to prohibit future violations; 52 treble damage actions in courts; 13'suspension orders limiting rights of individuals named to deal in rationed commodities; 11 warning notices against further violation of OPA regulations, and referral of 12 criminal actions to United States attorneys. Moisture arid Grade Set Corn Ceiling Several factors must be taken into consideration in computation of correct ceiling prices for corn it was pointed out this week by O. A. Buchanan, chairman of the Mason City war price and rationing board. In explanation of his statement the official stated that the OPA ceiling is based on No. 2 yellow shelled with moisture content of not more than 15% per cent. Deductions must be made for corn having greater moisture content and for grades lower than No. 2. The ear corn price must always be Jess than that for shelled corn to the extent of the value or cost of shelling. He urged all interested persons to make inquiry at their own board office for information applicable to their shipping point. "Both buyers and sellers ot corn should exercise care in establishing the price a bushel," Buchanan stated, "and this advice applies to all farmer-to-farmcr transactions as much as to other kinds of sales. Although the quoted market price may actually be a few cents below the ceiling prices, the grade and moisture content may call for deductions greater than the few cents difference between selling price and quoted market or ceiling price. In other words, a sales price of a few cents under ceiling might actually be above-ceiling for the grain concerned." Newcomer in "30 Seconds Over Tokyo" A little more than a year ago a charming, vivacoius wisp of a girl played a special matinee of "Claudia" in New York "to mark the beginning or end of a stage career. The audition was a success and in 2 years the then Broadway unknown has rocketed to stage prominence and a motion picture contract calling for her to play one of the plum screen roles of the year--Ellen Lawson, wife of hero Lieutenant (now Major) Ted Lawson, in the film version of "Thirty. Seconds/ Over Toyko," which opens Thursday at the Cecil theater, with Van Johnson and Hobert Walker, and Spencer Tracy, the latter as Lieutenant General James H. Doolittle. Wide-eyed, eager Phyllis Thaxter, the unknown of 2 years ago, recently reported to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studios to prepare for her star-making role. She received her first introduction to the. magic and ways of Hollywood. "It's all very bewildering but very fascinating," she remarked as she met countless people--prod u c e r s , directors, cameramen, beauty experts and technicians-- and as'she was initiated into the film capital fold. Brunette, hazel-eyed Phyllis was born in Portland, Maine. Her father, Sidney Thaxter, is a judge of the Maine supreme court. Her mother, who was Phyllis Schuyler, gave up a theatrical career with the Ben Greet Players to marry and have a family of 4. Following graduation from high school in Portland, Phyliis served her theater apprenticeship in summer school in Maine. In 1939 she tried .Broadway, obtaining walk- on bits in several sows. A maid in "There Shall Be No Night," was next and then came "Claudia" and success. Phyllis is not married and says there are no prospects at the moment. Willis Bemis Wins Armour Prize for Contest Suggestion Willis Bemis, a carpenter employed at Jacob E. Decker Sons, Tuesday was presented a War Savings Bond by the superintendent, for being one of the successful prize winners in Armour and company's national prize suggestion contest, which is open to all Armour employes for suggestions on betterment of product or for savings in equipment.
