C. -- Through neutral international Red Cross facilities local Red Cross chapters are the principal channel of communication between the people of the United States and friends, relatives and American nationals in enemy and enemy-occupied countries today. More than a million and a half messages, welfare inquiries and replies concerning civilians have been handled by local Red Cross chapters throughout the country since all regular channels of communication were cut off by war. Messages run the gamut of human emotions, reflecting both tragedy and humor in the brief glimpses they give of life behind the lines in belligerent nations. From France recently came a message: "Circumstances difficult, rlope to see you soon under more 'avorable conditions." And from Holland word was received by relatives in California, "Maintenance grave. Answer through Hed Cross." Families separated by the war and anxious for the welfare o£ oved ones from whom they have leard nothing since the regular communication channels were closed are grateful for any news at all, whether good or bad, which vill relieve the strain of long uncertainty. From one small community in this country went this message to someone in Germany, "Hope you are well. Everything all right with is." And the reply came back, 'Happy (o get your lines. Everyone is well. Only my brother is dead so far." Because of censorship messages are restricted to personal news but it often happens that there is more significance in what is not written, than in the actual words. One such message said briefly: "Parents are sent away. No news from them. I had to stay here working." Whether or not the parents had been sent away to a concentration camp, moved in a mass evacuation to another country or whether they might have suffered an even worse fate, the relatives could only guess. Relief over receiving I o n i looked-for news frequently brings jubilant replies, particularly from persons in this country to their less fortunate relatives abroad. An Italian in this country almost overcome with emotion when a message was finally received from his father in Italy replied, "Happy news of you Here children healthy, mysel peppy, now an office big shot liked and respected. Your smiling loving son, -." In a strange mingling of pathos and humor a message from a man in Holland to his mother in this country said. "Happy to know you are well. Pity Xe\v York is so far away. Family and I are O. K Have a job at The Hague Cheerio!" And by return mail went back a reply from his mother, with he 1 allotment of 25 words carefully chosen, "Glad to hear from you Wish you would write your name instead of printing so I can really know it is you who writes me." Messages and welfare inquiric. from persons in this country t civilian relatives and friends ii enemy and enemy-occupied coun tries are accepted by transmitta by all local Red Cross chapters Communication originating in thi enemy countries and the replies to the messages and inquiries also pass through the local chapters for delivery to th'e addressees. This Red Cross communication service is given without charge to all persons wishing to get in touch with relatives and friends in countries where regular mai channels are closed. oan division of the farm credit administration, has canceled his .larch 10 visit to Mason City, it was announced Thursday by Marion E.

United States senators from his state?" loth right 31% me right, one don't know ..17 ine right, one wrong 5 ;oth wrong 1 ne wrong, one don't know .. 3 'wo don't know 43 Persons who have some college ducation are better informed on ils question than any other group ncluded in the survey. Of those ith a college background 57 per ent can name both senators cor- ectly and 25 per cent more can ame one--a total of 82 per cent aniing at least one correctly, ighteen per cent cannot name ither correctly. Of penons with a hUh school background 39 per cent can name both senators correctly; an additional 25 per cent can name one; while 45 per cent make bad guesses or don't know. Of those with leu education only 18 per cent can Klve the correct name for both senators: 17 per cent can name one; and 65 per cent either don't know or mention wrong: names. Twice as many men as women can name both senators correctly (42--21 per cent). It is also significant that twice as many voters --people who went to the polls in the last presidential election--answer this question correctly in comparison with people who did not vote In 1940 (38--19 per cent).
