Decker Employes Win Safety Plaque FINGERPRINTS ARE EXPLAINED Sheriff Tim Phalen Urges All Citizens to Aid in Detective Science. "Look closely at the ball of your. right thumb. L o o k ^ a t it with a magnifying glass. You will see that it is covered with fine lines. Press the ball of your thumb on an inkpad and then on a sheet of paper This will, give your'thumb autograph. : No other thumb in the world, not even the one on youi left hand, will give a print like that one . . . and the same is true of all your fingers . . . and everybody's fingers." This was the crux of the tall by Tim R. Phalen, sheriff of Cerro Gordo county, which was given over station KGLO on the North Iowa Forum program Tuesday evening. Help Protect Innocent. After pointing out how finger prints are registered in govern ment files at Washington, D. C. the sheriff emphasized that every citizen should have his fingerprints registered because, he said this science is not only for detecting and convicting the guilty bu as well for the protection of thi innocent. The speaker asserted that thesi registered fingerprint cards wer matched 13 times a day, 365 time a month, or 4,356 times a yea with newly arrived prints from some law enforcement agency perhaps 3,000 miles from the placi of the crime, thus enabling fugi lives to be apprehended who otherwise might have escaped. "About six years ago," contin ued the officer, "the civil servici commission began routing its fin gerprints through the identifica lion unit. During the years follow ing, one in every 13 or 14 wa discovered to be a criminal." Sinci publicity has been given to thesi searches, the ratio has droppec now to the point where about on in every 40 who applies for a civi service job has a criminal record he added. · Fingerprints on Documents. . Sheriff Phalen stressed that th adoption of universal fingerprint ing would be a boon lo the welfar of the people of the United States He said: "The government require all government employes to hav their fingerprints on file.' Al branches of the military system re quire fingerprinting. Even th president of the United States ha his prints on file. Every importan document should bear the finger pring of its signer. This would d away with long, expensive civi suits. Fingerprinting facilities ar available to states, cities an even individuals. This is a servic of the people and for the people; In closing, the speaker thankei KGLO for the co-operation ah service it had given in crimina apprehension . . . and the servic it had rendered during the reccn snow storms.

DRY CLEANING and LAUNDRY SERVICE FELLOWSHIP OF PRAYER Daily Lenten Devotional Prepared by Dr. Willarfl . L. Spcrry for the Federal Council of Churches of Christ In America. Fifth Week--"Kiarca Christian Virtues." ~ HAPPINESS Wednesday, march 17. "Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding." Read Proverbs 3:13-20. We all feel that life should carry before it a plus sign, not a minus sign. The most obvious plus sign in li£e is p l e a s u r e . B u t pleasure can satisfy only one instinct, or one side of our nature, at a time, and is at the best short 1 i v e"d. Pleasure cannot content the whole man all the time. W e g o on, therefore, f r o m pleasure to happiness-- a much higher ideal. A great deal has DR. SPERK.Y been said in these recent days about our "right to happiness." The Bible is a happy book, rather than an unhappy book. But strangely, it has little to say in praise of happiness and few rules for finding it. Happiness woulc seem to be civil peace establishec out o£ the warring instincts, desires, and interests within our owi natures and characters. A well- tuned, smoothly running motor might be said to be "happy." So of a life in which all its parts are playing together in a single harmonious whole. Happiness is therefore a matter of being at peace with ourselves. But happiness is a half-way house: Beyond it lies the great Christian idea of joy. Prayer: O Almighty and mos merciful God, of thy bountifu goodness keep us, we beseech thee from all things that may hurt us lhat with inward harmony we may cheerfully accomplish those thing which thou wouldest have us do Through Jesus Christ our 'Lord Amen.
