UNANIMITY RULE KILLED LEAGUE, HABICHT WARNS "Principal Objective of World Government Is to Keep Order" A world government with an international law-making b o d y formed on the same principles as the U. S. congress and the Swiss parliament was advocated Tuesday evening by Doctor Max Habicht, first speaker on the 1943 Institute of International . Understanding series in Mason City. All over the world, everv 4,000,000 people able to read and write would elect one representative to the global parliament, according to the plan of the Swiss expert in International law who called himself a "social engineer." Each country of the world, regardless of size, would elect two senators to the world parliament. * * * Adding his voice to that of Doctor Hambro, former president of the League of Nations, who spoke here recently, Doctor Habicht, former member of the league secretariat, declared that the unanimity rule which virtually wrote the death warrant of the league The league was outstandingly successful in dealing" with social problems, the speaker pointed out, because whenever machinery was drafted by a committee it was welcomed by all. "BUT THE PRINCIPAL OBJECTIVE OF A WORLD GOVERNMENT MUST BE TO KEEP ORDER," HE INSISTED. Its deliberations must be limited to international, problems Doctor Habicht continued, and in addition to the legislative branch, it must have police powers and a world court. The nations must give up all military airplanes to make the police powers of (he world government effective, according, to his plan. Then 200,000 bombers and 4,000,000 flyers will be able to maintain order at the direction of the world government, he believes. * * * Great Britain and the United Slates will be the most difficult to win over to the world parliament plan, the speaker admitted, in answer to a question. ' They have suffered least and consequently are least convinced of the necessity for a change from present conditions. , But even though the nations of :he world will of necessity have :o give up their sovereignty and submit to majority rule in the world parliament the possibility of gaining peace as a-result would be well worth the concession. Russian diplomats with whom Doctor Habicht has spoken indicated that they would join a world order, he said. "They are progressive and open minded. What Stalin wants is security and it may be his mind is farther ahead than Roosevelt's or Churchill's. The Russians arc closer to something new than the western world." "But war is expensive and we should be willing to pny some price for peace," he declared "If the man on the street will make an attempt to understand the problem, and is willing to work at it, he can convince his representatives that it should be accepted. * * * "The death of the league led us to the conclusion that peace is impossible under the unanimity rule." * * ¥ Doctor Habicht asserted that he told his family at the time of the Manchurian incident, that he was the only Swiss to lose a night's sleep over it--he was busy opening cablegrams and forwardin" them to the world capitals--but that if the incident was not hand led correctly the whole world some day would lose sleep over it. "The world had a fire in the attic and thought it was in another house," he suggested. A 55 man committee was sent to -Mukden and Japan to study the matter but no action could be taken because under the unanimity rule. Japan could block it. The Habicht pattern for establishment of order after the war followed these points: 1. Don't conclude a peace treaty right after the armistice. "You can't reorganize the world in six months as was tried after the last war." 2. First send out relief workers to fight famine and pestilence. 3. An army of occupation is essential to fight anarchy and civil war in Europe and the conquered nations a f t e r the war. 4.

G. Hailon Further information concerning conclusion of Doctor York, Nebr. the investments are available from address, the audience Siv ovanri^hti^,-^^ -,"i r ~ - :..- the following cnmmitfpn nhaivmon ·iod followed, many being based on information gained from broadcast. Stalin's failure to attend the Casablanca conference is not particularly discouraging, D o c t o r Habicht believed, since the explanation that his presence way necessary in Russia to direct military operations is perfectly reasonable. Robert Burlingame, Des Moines radio newscaster, who was introduced at the close of the meeting, pointed out, however, that press dispatched had stated that Roose- ·-elt and Churchill offered to hold he meeting at some place more accessible for Stalin if he would attend but that the Russian leader still refused. * * * A fine tribute was paid to the press and radio of the United States, Mr. Burlingame pointed out, in the release of the Casablanca story on the wires 30 hours before it was permitted on the air or on the streets. * * * The real significance of the Casablanca meeting, in his opinion, was the joint military staff meeting which undoubtedly completed plans for the real second front after Tunisia has been cleaned up. "It was an important military conference even though it seemingly was no important politically," he said. "No one outside the general staffs has any valid idea on the location of the coming second front," Doctor Habicht replied to a questioner. In 1939 he told his family that they would celebrate Christmas in Europe in 1943, he said; he still believes there is a chance for an armistice in Europe this year 'But I understand that it will be longer in the east." * * * Russia's 'armies will not stop at the border as recent statements by Stalm might have indicated to some, he replied to another. "They will walk into Berlin for security reasons but I believe it is quite possible that they will be satisfied to leave territorial boundaries much as they were in 1939." Hugh H. Spehard, president of the Mason City Rotary club which is one of the sponsors of the institute lecturers, introduced Roy Bailey of the Lions club sponsor of the Tuesday evening ?? C3 rt Cr - W ' Earl Ha!I introduced Mr. Burlingame. An informal social gatherint! was held after the lecture at the home of Dr. and Mrs. T. E. Davidson at which a lively discussion continued between Doctor Habicht, Mr. Burlingame and the other guests participated.

Poshusta is now in.North Africa, according to a letter written to his parents, Mr.- and Mrs. Walter Poshusta, 207 Monroe avenue southwest. He had been - in North Ireland for ten months. On the way there, he stopped in London and visited numerous places of interest on a tour conducted under auspices of the American Red Cross Eagle club of London. He named Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square as the places where he spent most of his furlough time. In North Africa, he wrote, "We have some difficulty talking to the natives here as they speak the French language. So we have to use gestures to be understood. The people here, including the Arabs, are very friendly. The structure of homes and buildings is is much different from that in the states. The French people here are great wine drinkers and drink wine just like we do coffee. There are many poor people here. They are crazy for chocolate and gum. "I have met some of the Mason City and Austin boys on the boat from Great Britain. We are living under many hardships now but all seem to manage ourselves very well.

McLaughlin Lives as Civilian in West A letter from James McLaughlin, formerly in the composing room of the Globe-Gazette, reveals that he is married and now living in San Diego. He writes he is living much as a civilian in an apartment from which he rides to his base every morning and back again at night. "California is a nice place to visit," McLaughlin admits, "but I wouldn't like to Jive there." Crowded conditions, prices, and lack of butter are his reasons. Like most of the other young men to leave Mason City, McLaughlin will be glad to come back, he writes.
