MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE * THURSDAY, JANUARY 25, 1945 FBI MEETS WITH IOWA OFFICERS ''. Discuss Meeting of Postwar Problems North Iowa law enforcement of- Iflcials met Thursday at the Hotel l^fanford in an all-day session de|,voted to enforcement problems. The meeting was one of a cur- Irent' state-wide series ol confer- lences which are sponsored peri- lodically by the federal bureau of I investigation. E. E. Kuhnel of Des IMoines, special agent in charge o; I the state FBI office, presided. He opened the session at 10:30 a. m I with' a discussion of present-day 1 and post-war problems connected | v;ith law enforcement. Sgt, Lyle Dawson of the state I highway patrol spoke on co-ordi Illation of efforts in criminal ap I prehension, devoting most of his I talk to a discussion of the organ [ization and effective use of roai I blocks. After lunch, slides 'Of outstand [ ing Iowa fugitives were shown b. I E. R.

To facilitate the studying of iese subjects and others equally nteresting the army has provided "?AP with a preflight study man- lal that is really out of, this world. Then, .there are the ; regulation rmy manuals that cover subjects ompletely so that any one wish- ng more complete knowledge may go as far as he wishes. So that the work will not be just he reading of text books, CAP has a very complete library of training "Urns to draw from. -Within the lext 2 or 3 weeks the local squad- ron'will be equipped with an air- lane engine, carburetors, magnetos, enlarged class room models of airplane instruments, and navigation devises. All of this instruction, and the privilege of working with these training aids, besides the association with a very congenial group of young people, is absolutely free. And it involves no obligation to serve in the armed forces. Prop-Wash Hangar Flying With CAP The army has a name for the AP.. cadets. That name is KIWI l(the bird that doesn't fly). The liame is well used because as far Its CAP is concerned the CAP ca|let does not fly; in other words, ?!AP does not give flight training. iChe reason for this involves the (natter of a government agency lompeting with private enterprise Ind-we will not argue about it I ere. The cadet does receive preflight -aining that even if the young lerson never becomes involved ith' an airplane is an addition to (is education that he will never Irgret.

"In the postwar period, just as n the years before the war, the advantage will lie with the farmer who is able to increase his per acre crop production and lower his costs," the statement points out. "He can accomplish this by Duilding up the fertility of his soil proper rotation, by the growing of legumes, by adequate fertilization, crop diversification and the use of other progressive farm management methods. The ability of the farmer to meet postwar competition successfully will depend on his attaining the efficiency made possible by such a program. In days to come, the emphasis will be on the crop production from a given acreage rather than on how many acres a farmer is able to work. 'In such a situation the steady use' of mixed fertilizer containing nitrogen, phosphorus and potash will be an enormously important factor;. More bushels an acre can, and will rmean more'good food'an acre to help:^uild healthier'hu- man beings and farm animals in the future. "The advantage of buying greater crop productivity an acre through the use of fertilizer, rather than investing in more land is 2-fold. First, it protects the farmer from the danger of farm land deflation such as followed World war I. Secondly, it adds to the long-range value of his present farm holdings and strengthens his economic position for the competitive years ahead;" EVEN TO THE YOUNGEST -- Arras -and back stricken with infantile paralysis, this 8 months old baby received modern care and treatment at the Crippled Children's Guild, Buffalo, N. Y., through the assistance of the Stuben. county chapter of the National Foundation for Infantile ' Paralysis. It is for siich service as this that the Cerro Gordo and other chapters of the foundation are now ·staging their campaign for funds.

' : * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 3,192 Polio Victims Are Returned to Work in Year The National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, in cooperation with existing government agencies, is 'today setting a pattern for the rehabilitation of handicapped persons which will serve in good stead as our wounded veterans return home to resume their places in a civilian society. Victims of poliomyelitis are even now opening up new avenues of hope for those of our men who will come back permanently disabled by proving every day that a disability need not stand in the way of* economic productivity and independence. A survey recently completed by the Federal Security Agency, Office o£ Vocational Rehabilitation, reveals that 3,192 handicapped infantile paralysis cases were economically rehabilitated during the year ending June 30,-1943, by the state rehabilitation agencies alone. This group, according to the survey, is represented in almost COUGH LOZENGES Millions use F F Lozenges to give their throat a 15 minute soo thing, comforting treatment that reaches all die way down.

Fertile--Mr. and Mrs. Gunder Hegney arrived home recently from Greenville, Mich., where they visited their daughter and family, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Varner and 2 girls for the past 4 weeks. Mrs. Hegney had an attack of the flu and is still confined to her home. every -conceivable profession and occupation. A total of 448 are engaged in professional or semi-professional jobs -- among them are doctors, engineers, ministers, artists, musicians, laboratory t e c h n i c i a n s , a r c h i t e c t s and photographers. Over; 200 are working-,as salesmen, investigators, store owners store managers, etc. Over 1,000 do clerical work. Another 1,000 are engaged in such trades as-carpentry, auto and airplane repair work machine operating and tool grinding. The acute manpower shortage of the past few years has been a potent factor in making effective this rehabilitation work, and this respect war has served a peculiarly constructive purpose Because many employers who never before considered hiring handicapped people now realize their capabilities as workers, new channels of employment are being opened to them constantly. Behind each of these "success stories," and they are success stories in the truest sense, lies a will and a strong incentive for the rehabilitation which has been achieved. For even the severes of physically handicapped peopl do not want to be dependent 01 the labor and the earnings o others for their very existence Whatever the.disability, it rarelj changes the basic desires of th man, or the need for their ful fillment.

In many oliomyelitis cases, the disease as entailed partial weakness or omplete loss o£ muscle power in ne or several parts of the body, nd consequent loss of 'movement.

Through Hs chapters, the Na- ional · Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, is providing whatever care is necessary to restore to polio victims their maximum ihysical independence, within the imits of present-day knowledge of the treatment for this disease. This aid is financed by contribu- ions to the campaign in celebra- :ion of the president's birthday. The campaign is now on in Cerro Gordo county, where a :otal of 5,700 persons contributed ?3,500 last year. The campaign ricrc is in the form of- voluntary subscriptions. ' Aid is provided through these funds regardless of the age, race, creed or color of the victim and to chronic, as well as acute cases. The only yardstick is the yardstick of need. Emphasis on Comforts in Future Home Chicago, (U.R)--The pent-up demand for all kinds of construction in the postwar period will require more men than at, any time in the history of the building industry and construction will be an important factor in alleviating unemployment, according to Henry J. Schwcim, general manager .of the gypsum association. Safety and comfort rather than "startling innovations" will be emphasized in the postwar home, Schweim said. "They'll have walls with more fire protection, insulation and vapor barriers to prevent condensation, all at little if any more cost than the prewar wall," he said: "Refinement of new materials will make possible new handling of interiors. For just a little more the principal rooms can be sound- conditioried for restful quiet." ; As soon as WPB permission is granted work can start on homes, ! apartment buildings, institutions j and other buildings that have I been planned, Schweim said, but j he warned that the expected inno- 1 vations will come later. ! "All the talk about miracle de- . i vices has failed to make clear that I i they are still in the experimental ! stage," he said.
