The president, Mrs. George Brest- operat holt, welcomed the visiting groups pital. and the,president of each group introduced herself and the'repre- sentatives of her organization. The following clubs were present: Home Improvement, Busy Bee, Sing and Sew, Do Your Bit, Oweso, Colonial and also the Lakeside Ladies Aid. Â· of Clear Lake. A short business meeting was held .after- which the committee presented;:the Lake -View club project, .which-is the rural school picture library. Mrs. Lyle Stevens introduced Mrs; C. N. Prestholt, the Â·chairman, who was president at the time the project was taken She told of her wish at the time for 'a :really- worthwhile project . arid after- conferring with' Miss Thomas, brought to the club the wish to the county superintendent to have at least one really good picture in each rural school. niversarj The project, with the Lake View Jan. 26. club as a nucleus, was immediately" adopted and Mrs. Prestholt told of the various ways tried to raise money to promote it. Auction sales proved the most popular. The clnb has purchased E reproductions of famous paintings, some imported from Europe, including the following: "The Bridge" by van Gogh, purchased in 1940, "Summer-'Day" by Monet, purchased in 1940, "Still Life" by Cezanne," purchased in 1910, "Artist's Mother" by Kembrandt, purchased in 1942, "Stone City" by Grant Wood, purchased in: 1941, and "Sloop Bermuda" by Winslow Homer, purchased in .1941. Because of the war, these good pictures have not been available at all times and the club has purchased ' 3 war bonds with the money raised the past 2 years. This year an order has been placed for another "Master Simpson" by Â· Devis and more will be ordered just as soon as they are available. The Eden school district has also raised funds for this purpose and has ordered one "Chief's Blanket" by Couse. In 1940 the Cerro Gordo county teachers presented "Madonna of the.Chair" by Raphael to Miss Thomas'at Christmas and she , has,added it to the picture library. Two of these pictures were ex- hibittd, "SOU Life" and "Madon' na of the Chair" and Mrs. J. F. Hanson, Jr., told the story of each and the life of each artist. She also gave interesting facts of the life of each of the artists of other pictures purchased. Mrs. Stevens then expressed the hope of the Lake View club that each of the rural groups would purchase at least one good picture a year and that eventually each school in the county would have at least one picture. So far the pictures have rotated ' mostly in Grant, Clear Lake and Lake townships. At certain times designated by Miss Thomas, the pictures are exchanged at the teachers' meetings at Mason" City. Miss Thomas arrived in the late afternoon and answered questions concerning the project. Â· Following this an auction sale was conducted with Mrs. J. P.- Hansen, Jr., Mrs. C. N. Prestholt and Mrs. Lyle Stevens as auctioneers. Mrs. George Prestholt was the winner of a wool laprobe made and presnted to the club by Mrs. Eli Mack. About $44 was realized from the proceeds of the auction. Tea was served by a committee consisting of Mrs. Earl Lambert, Mrs. Oscar Yohn and Mrs. Everett Paulson,' with Mrs. George Prest- hijlt pouring.

MOTHER PLEADS FOR SON'S LIFE Mrs. Hulten Asks Clemency for Soldier Boston, (U.R) -- A heartbroken Boston mother has'appealed to the British government to-spare the life of her soldier-son iPvt. Karl G. Hulten. 22, who has been sentenced to be hanged in London for the robbery-murder of a London taxicab driver, the United Press learned Friday. In a m a b 1 e E r a m, gray-haired Mrs. Signe M. Hulten implored British home secretary Herbert Morrison to "answer the prayer of a mother" and grant some form of clemency to the convicted American paratrooper. Both Hulten and his co-defendant, 18 year old striptease dancer Elibabeth Jones, already have announced they will appeal the mandatory death sentences imposed on them early this week for shooting taxi driver George Heath. The cablegram through which Mrs. Hulten seeks to save her only child from the gallows read as follows: "Please answer the prayer of a mother, Mr. Secretary, and save my son's life.

University of Although a plurality ,of 43 per cent would like to see all member countries have an equal say, a plurality of 49 per cent think a world organization is most likely to be dominated by the "Big Three." , NORC interviewers talked with a representative cross-section of the ' American public--farmers, housewives, war workers, truck drivers, , business ineri, Â· clerks, stenographers, professional .people, domestic and service workers --in urban and rural areas from coast to coast. All were asked: 1. ''If some kind of world !organization is formed, which one of thÂ«se things would you like to see? 2. "Which one of these ways do you think a world organization is most likely to be run?" A comparison of these 2 questions shows that 26 per cent of all Americans would like to see the United States have most to say about running a world organization, but only 12 per cent believe that this will be the case. Almost one-half of all those interviewed (49 per cent) expect that the big 3 -- Britain, Russia asd the United States-^together will have most to ray about running it, but only 19 per cent express their preference of this idea. Forty-three per cent would like to see the world organization managed in a way that all the member countries should have about the same Â· amount to say about running it. However, only 17 per cent think that this will be the case.

As previously announced, the new sugar stamp will have to last 3 months instead of the 2H months as in the past. If the supplies improve, the latter ration period will be restored and the overlap time when 2 stamps may be used will be increased to 1% months, OPA said.

Peszat, although eager: to return to the show, generously gave his observer seat to this correspondent. Soon we were up--followed | by planes piloted by: Lt. George Kilmer, of -Des Moines, Iowa, j cousin of the late Joyce Kilmer, and Lt. Floyd Watland, of Estherville, Iowa. - . The flight to the Siegfried, line required only a few minutes and took us over a wide area, filled with debris of American tanks and trucks caught when the Germans broke through last month..
