14 , JAivJAn* fcl, ibts MASON ClT* GLoBil-UAZtiri NEW CARRIER IS CHRISTENED Important Role Pointed Out in Gates' Talk NEWPORT NEWS, Va., (U.R)-- Mrs. Franklin D. Boosevelt returned here Thursday and christened a new. carrier Yorktown. The new ship, a namesake for the gallant carrier sunk in the Pacific after she had helped win the battle of Midway, is of the Essex class and reportedly displaces 25,000 tons. The old Yorktown was also christened by Mrs. Boosevelt on April 4, 1936. * * * Artemus L, Gates, assistant secretary of the navy for air and principal sjeaker at the launching, said that "our aircraft carriers have been given credit for damming the raging flood of -Jap aggression that was surging so strongly last spring and summer, threatening Australia and Hawaii with invasion." Gates said that carrier planes played a major role in covering the November landing operations on the west coast of North Africa. * * * "Our carrier based pianes neutralized strong opposition which might otherwise have made the expedition an exceedingly costly affair," he said. ' O u r landing forces were actively opposed at sea by submarines and war ships, while fixed batteries and large numbers of shore based aircraft further threatened the success of the impending action." The new Yorktown, built in the same yard as its predecessor, is the second of its type to be launched here since Pearl Harbor. Rear Admiral Elliott Buckmaster, who as captain commanded the old Yorktown until she was sunk on June 7, 1942, also spoke briefly. He paid tribute to the men who fought on the earlier ship,- warned that more losses would probably come, but said that "the harder we fight, the harder we work, the sooner we win the victory." The Rev. Guy Little Starts Revival at Gospel Mission Here The Rev. Guy Little, Des Moines, interdenominational holiness evangelist, started a revival campaign Wednesday evening at 7:30 o'clock in the Gospel Mission at Van Buren and Sixth street southwest. A number of years ago the evangelist held a campaign here and as a result the Mason City Gospel Tabernacle was established. Mr. Little held subsequent meetings here, one that resulted in 25 persons being baptized in Clear Lake on a Sunday in March about 15 years ago. He also has held campaigns at Lake Mills, Joice and Fertile. The meetings will begin at 7:30 o'clock each everting-with special singing.

Thousands o! eople young and old alike, will be ravaged by the disease and even though it can't be guessed vhy, when or where it will trike. science and the National foundation for Infantile Paralysis can make this statement with definite, conclusive certainty. As spokesman for the founda- ion, Dr. John E. Levan says: "We do not want to tighten people, we vant no return of the panic years. Dpidemics usually occur where there is a large migration . of people, but it can strike anywhere. The foundation staff will )e on. the lookout and ready for emergency, large scale relief work jy June or early July at the atest;" * * * We have had victims of infantile paralysis here in Cerro Gordo county in the past and it Is all loo probable we shall have more in the future. During the past year several victims of this dread disease have been helped through funds raised by the local committee. Among these have been an operation for a local youth, afflicted recently with poliomyelitis. Another victim has been furnished a new £race while several old ones have been repaired and shoes have been built and repaired for others so handicapped. * * * The aim of the committee this year is to raise enough funds to send a local nurse to study the famous Nurse Kenny treatment Tor infantile paralysis. If there is an epidemic there will not be available space in clinics in the large cities for the treatment, which needs must be started immediately following the attack. People in the community have always responded with a will when this campaign has been in progress and the forecast is that they will respond in the same manner this year. The first of the large donations to the infantile paralysis fund this year was from the Beet Sugar Refinery E m p l o y e e s Union Xo. 21168. * tf y For the first time since the 'pundation was organized, a func. ioning labor organization has een established with William Green, president of A. F. of L., and Phillip Murray, president of "!. I. O. as chairmen of the di- ision. The local unions are cooperating. L. T. "Jim" Gallogly, general chairman of the local campaign, announced the appointment of several new people on the various committees. He has named LJoyd Quinby and Wesley Murray on the ticket committee at the Hotel Hanford and Haxry Paxton as a member of the committee on general arrangements at the loteL Mrs. Fern Quinby has been added to the general ticket committee. - Wesley Family Night Held in Spite of Below Zero Weather In spite of below zero weather, Wesley Methodist church's "Family Night" was attended by more than 100 persons Wednesday night. The dinner was served by Circles A and B, Mrs. Walter Thomas acting chairman for Circle A and Mrs. Wesley Brod 1 chairman of Circle B. Following a brief devotiona service conducted by the minister the monthly official board meeting of the congregation was held. Then for half an hour all of the major organizations of the church adjourned to respective rooms to transact the business of each m- dividual organization. Following these meetings, the group reconvened for an hour o fun and fellowship. One of thi features of this period was an in telligence test, which was von by Elmer Bowers. Guests were Ensign Douglas Bey, Robert Peter son, Bkr. 3/C, Mrs. Richard Har torn of Hopkinton City, Rhode Island, and Mrs. Louis Salimeno o Westerly, Rhode Island. Storrs, 83, "Dean of World's Telephone Men," Dies in Oregon OMAHA, (.P) -- Arlington G Storrs, 83, who introduced the telephone to dozens of villages in Iowa and Nebraska, died Monday at Portland. Ore.,' it was learned here Thursday. Known as the "dean of the world's telephone men," Storrs began his career one year after Alexander Graham Bell invented the device. When he retired in 1928 his record of 51 years and four months in Bell service was the longest in the company's history. He got his first telephone job at Rochester, N. Y., in 1877, when he was only 15 years old. He came to Iowa in 1885, and started to build telephone systems. His method was to go to a town, solicit subscribers, lay out the plant, order materials, hire crews, train operators, instruct a manager, then hurry on to the next town.
