In an essay contest sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary oJ Mason City, Samuel Francis George, a junior student in the Mason City high school, won. second place with his entry. The topic is "How Can International Disputes Be Settled in the Spirit of Fidac?" Mr.'George's essay follows: , The Fidac is an Interallied Veterans' Society, which was organized in 1920. The purpose of the society is to help settle international disputes by bringing about a spirit of friendship and understanding among the peoples of the different nations. In this brief essay it will be shown: First, how other methods have utterly failed to settle international disagreements; and secondly, how the solution can be effected in the spirit of Fidac. Does Not End War. War does not end war. When the United States fought in the World war, the people believed that it was a war to end war. Our soldiers fought with the understanding that never again would it be necessary to fight, that their children and their children's children would be forever free from the "h'ell" of war. Our mothers and dear ones worked and sacrificed to help win for the same reason. Who can feel the serious meaning of war better than the soldier who fought and the mother who sacrificed'; Now complete disillusionment permeates the people. It is generally believed that the World war settled absolutely nothing. The responsible aggressor was not determined; the victors gained nothing, and lost much; the vanquished lost all, and gained nothing; feelings of vengeance and hatred were left to rankle in the hearts of all combatant peoples; and the world was left in such an economic chaos, that, even after 20 years, order has not yet been restored. No, war does not end war. War is terrible! And in the future it will be still worse. Another war will not be one in which ust men will be the victims. It will be a war in which innocent women, children and old people are sacrificed. · The present civil Spain bears sad witness :o .such' atrocities as -these: European na'tioris are' still paying 'the penalties for the last war; undernourished children, economic depression, curtailed freedom, innumerable physical and mental cases, unbearably high taxes, and spiritual depletion. But the fighting equipment o£ modern warfare is so much more perfected, speed in every respect so much more developed, that should there be another world conflict, safety would be nowhere. Those who are at home as well as those at the front, would be maimed, made to suffer, and even killed. Another great way would practically destroy our civilization. The greastest scientific minds o£ each country would compete with each other in making the deadliest weapons. It would be a war in which those countries having the cleverest inventive geniuses would be victorious. But victory would only mean defeat, for the winning nation or nations, as well as the losing ones, would be left exhausted; physically,, morally, economically and culturally. In Scandinavia. Now let the spirit of Fidac be illustrated. T h e Scandinavian countries are examples to the world. Instead of building warships, they have built homes. Instead of holding chips on their shoulders, they have developed cooperative farming. Switzerland also serves as an example to the other countries, an example ot peace amidst turmoil. In these two corners of the earth the spirit ot friendship and mutual understanding has taken root, and the horrors of war have been avoided. It is confidently believed that a friendly and understanding spirit between nations is the only guarantee of permanent peace in the world. It has been shown that the fighting spirit and revengeful feelings between peoples have not settled their disagreements, but on the contrary, have only intensified them. Nations are now 'so dependent, cnc upon the other, that true peace must be universal. The world must be educated along the lines of friendship, understanding and co-operation, for peace. Thus the principles of Christianity as exemplified by the golden rule, if sincerely put into practice by all the countries, constitute the solution of the problem of world peace. This epitomizes the spirit of Fidac. COOK-SMIDT HUTCHINS--William Cook, a resident of this vicinity, and Anna Smidt, from south of Britt, were married in the Baptist parsonage in Britt Friday by the Rev. B. A. Rust, pastor of Bethel Baptist church. Attendants were H e l e n Baker and the bride's brother, Henry Smidt. Following the ceremony the couple left oit a motor trip to Dumont. Upon their return they will occupy the n e w house near Wallace Donovans, and Mr. Cook, who has been working for M. C. Gahan and sons, will continue in the employ of the sons, who have leased the land where Mr. and Mrs. Cook will live.

"We hear so much about the revolt of youth," Dr. Boraas said. "Is there anything left to revolt from? The general Impression seems to be that youth today is more repressed and suppressed than ever before and that flaming youth has no salvation except through revolt against all parental authority, all customs observed in the past, all conventions sanctioned by respectable adults of today. ' Sit-Down Strike. "If anything goes amiss in such endeavors, the parents and teachers are to blame and should pay the bills for'damage. Has the time arrived for a sit-down strike by parents and teachers? If youth is to be 100 per cent free, how about claiming some freedom for others. A short sit-down strike would give time for a bit of thinking and might clear our minds. "What factors have caused the present situation and how did things get this way? Did passing from affluence o£ a few years ago to less affluence have something to do with it? Are we unable to go without things we cannot afford? It has been easy to borrow but to pay seems to cause grief. "It is pleasant to insist on rights. Can we stand to think about duties and can there be rights without duties? Freedom to many implies absence of restraint,-Is any worthwhile freedom gained without being; achieved? ; - '"'v'··'·.'-.'· Call For Security. 'There . is much talk about changed conditions today, but is today 100 per cent different from yesterday? Just how different are we or the things about us? We call frantically for security. Has there ever been a period in history when a person was more secure against freezing, starving, dying from this or that ailment than today? "If all of us demand from other security, who is the real goat? We dream of Utopias--most of our ideas about them come from California. We need a magician. "We hear a good deal of declamation in schools and out against indoctrination. Is it right to deprive youngsters of the benefit ol experience. Is it about time that we b e g a n t o snap out of it or are we to go from anemia of the mind into paralysis of the spirit and general coma? Problem Children, "Shall we assume as some people seem to do that most of the children are problem children or that most of the parents are problem parents. Shall we go into an emotional state of excitement and worry about complexes, sex urges, self expression and other more or less abnormal conditions? There is much more normalcy in the world in home and than we realize. "Let us stress school the study of Die laws of nature, especially the relations of cause and effect. Certain causes have always produced certain effects. Study the laws of human life and note the force of habits. Can we get young people to realize that you cannot do a thing repeatedly without its becoming a habit.

"Young people should get rid of false notions about the relative prestige of vocations in order that they may exercise an intelligent choice. I£ you go to college and then get a job as an oil station attendant, will you be unhappy or dissatisfied? If ,you are, the fault is with the college, not the oil station. Are people who go most to school the happiest, or have we lifted up certain occupations and depressed others so that persons are ashamed to be in them. "We must cultivate the ability to discover disguised imperatives in history, science and practical affairs. In back of all declarative sentences, there is an imperative. Need Flonecrinir. 'This is an age when people need to do a little pioneering to counteract pessimism. The world has never been handed to any generation as a finished product.

W. J. Suckow, Congregational minister at Alden, and uncle- o£ the bride, acted as the officiating clergyman. A sunny landscape, blue skies and a brisk but sun- warmed air made the day ideal for the purpose, The reason they both chose this particular spot for the marriage ceremony is that' they are great lovers of nature and are especially fond o£ Pilot Knob park and its many beauties.

Later she was graduated from the Iowa Teachers' college at Cedar Falls. She taught for a time in the rural schools of Liberty township and in the consolidated schools at Meservey.
