He recited changes in the nat- uralization.laws as shown by the county's records which extend back to 1852 when Cerro Gordo county was formed from part of Franklin county- Friendly to Applicants The bureau of naturalization was was established by the U. S. department .of labor in 1906, he related. That bureau, as well as well as courts, are friendly to the applicant for citizenship, he asserted and want to see him admitted in so far as it is possible under the law. "The United States is the only one of the world powers where an alien may become ,a citizen as a matter of right," the speaker pointed out. "Other countries grant citizenship through a special dispensation process. Character Counts "Perhaps the main requisite before admission to citizenship is that the applicant establish by his witnesses that he is a person of good moral character, attached to the principles of the constitution and that he is not a believer in polygamy or anarchy. "In addition, he must know something of our forms of government so that he may vote intelligently if admitted to citizenship. His qualifications are determined in open court upon a day specified for that purpose. A class of 20 or more persons is coming "up for final hearing Before the court here on April 4." Applicants Neefl Help Some of the questions concerning the form and principles of our government which probably will be asked of the applicants were recited by the speaker. He closed with the plea that all take the same attitude as the naturalization bureau and the courts and aid worthy persons to become citizens. "There are many reasons why we should help them," he asserted. "The great majority of them are honest, sincere, hard working people who really appreciate our systems. If for no other reason, they should be citizens because they are here and it is better that they become good citizens than to leave them disintersted aliens. All Good Students "To assist them a school is being conducted five nights a week at McKinley school. The attendance is good and student applicants attending the classes in the past have never failed to be admitted to citizenship if their record and character is otherwise good. "They work and study hard and should be rewarded with citizenship for their very industry and sincerity demonstrate that they have the qualities of good citizens."
