As a part of the local observance of Junior Chamber week FOR COLDS' COUGHING, MUSCLE ACHES PENETRO WITH THE MUTTON SUET BASE MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE TUESDAY, JANUARY 19, 1943 Sterling Prusia spoke Monday night over the KGLO North Iowa Forum on aims and achievements of the nation-wide movement. "Junior Chambers of Commerce have made themselves units for effective community vtirtime action because of their program of constructive projects," stated Roger Lyons, president of the local organization. 'So effectively have m o s t Junior Chambers of Commerce integrated their program toward winning the war that it has received the enthusiastic approval of civic, military, and governmental leaders." In many communities, including Mason City, the Junior Chamber of Commerce lias been the leader in organizing scrap collection campaigns; in others it was the first organization to volunteer its services as blood donors. In fav-of£ Hawaii the Junior Chamber of Commerce was giveir specific defense responsibilities by the military authorities. In many areas the Junior Chamber has improved industrial and military health through vigorous educational programs about venereal disease and the initiating of legislation for control of commercialized prostitution. Selection of the recipient of the distinguished service key is being made by a committee of leading citizens and the award is to be presented after approval ol the committee's nominee by the United States Junior Chamber o! Commerce who affords the recognition through the local organization, the latter an affiliated member of the national group, the selection being made on the basis of the recipient's contributions to the welfare of the community in the past 12 months. The winnei need not be a member of the local Junior Chamber of Commerce. Based on qualifications of a -ike nature but of national scope, the United States Junior Cham- oer of Commerce annually presents a similar award to the young man Vvho has effected the most significant contribution to the welfare of the nation. A committee of important national leaders conferred the national award on Captain Colin P. Kelly, Jr., last year. Captain Kelly, army pilot hero who gave his life while destroying the Japanese battleship "Haruna." symbolized for America's youth the sacrifice necessary to preserve the freedom which is (he heritage of every American. This year's national presentation will be made by William M. Shepherd president of the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce on Jan. 21. Youths of 17 May Enlist in Reserves, Recruiters Reveal BOSTON. (/Pi -- Youths of 17 how may enlist in the army reserves, but they won't be called into service until sometime during the six months after their 18th birthdays, Maj. Gen. Sherman Miles of the first service command has announced. Recruiting officials said this was the first time in a generation that boys have been permitted to enlist in the United States army before they became 18 years old. Miles said that, under a new policy of the army, the youths, provided they are American citizens, are physically fit and have their parents' consent, can enlist either in the army enlisted reserve corps, unassigned, or. if they qualify, as aviation cadet: in the air corps enlisted reserve Bookkeeping System to Be Simplified DES MOINES. (ff) -- Gov. Bourkc B. Hickenlooper appointed two members of the state executive council as a, committee to investigate t h e possibilities of simplifying the state's b o o k k e e p i n g a n d accounting system. State Auditor C. B. A k e r s a n d Treasurer W. G. C. Bag- Icy are to make a preliminary study and re- BAGLEY port back to the council. The legislature will be invited to have committee work .with the executive council committee. '·The last session of the legislature appropriated 53,000 a year for such a study, but none of that has been spent," the governor pointed out. "My suggestion is that we immediately take steps to have a preliminary survey made Of the state's accounting system. My opinion is that we ought to be able to make very great progress by July 1, t h e beginning o f t h e n e w liscal year," he added. The governor p o i n t e d o u t t h a t i f a n y changes are to be made in the AKEKS b o o k k e e p i n g system they should be made at the beginning of the new business year. Ho said some legislation might be required to facilitate the change-over. The governor's idea is that the state can profit by the experience of other states in respect to simplifying its bookkeeping. He believes that some duplication of procedure can be eliminated to the end that the state's business would be carried on with fewer employes. The governor said the slate Certified Public Accountants' association has been "very generous to advise on some of the things which might be done" and that the state would have access without cost to the results of national studies of the problem extending over several years. Other action taken Monday at the new governor's first meeting with the slate executive council was the re-election of William E. Brown, 32, of Onawa as secretary. Brown, publisher of the weekly Onawa Sentinel, has held the 53,600. a year post as secretary of the council since Jan. 1, 1942. The council ylso approved some liquor store leases as follows: Belmond, $30 a month; Ijvormore $25: Tiplon, $50; Walnut, $25; New Market. S20. DEADLINES! II a. m.

Benson OP) -- Senator (R.-Jcffcrson) said Tuesday he would introduce a bill to change the primary elcc- Lton date in Iowa from the first Monday in June to the first Tuesday alter the first Monday in September. Benson said he believed the change would bring more interest to the primary from both the farmer and the laboring man and eliminate the necessity on the part of the candidates of waging two separate campaigns. "June is a busy time, both for the farmer ami the laboring man," 1 he said. "In September, however, the laboring man is in his Labor Day vacation period and it is a slack season on the farm. "The later date would benefit those who campaign because their acquaintances and platforms could be carried over from the primary to the election. It would tend to eliminate two complete campaigns." he added. Benson said that his bill would provide the same intervals of time for filing nomination papers, affidavits of candidacy, preparation of ballots and canvass of the votes after election that are provided under the present law.
