MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE TUESDAY, APRIL 4, 1939 Whetstone, Casey Student, Wins Safety Essay Contest Cresco High School Freshman Girl Takes Second in Competition DBS MOINES, (IP)--A Casey high school senior Tuesday was named winner o{ the Iowa State Safety council's essay contest on the subject "How can Iowa's highways be made safe?" The winner, Charles S.' Whetstone, will be awarded his choice of a trip to the New York World's lair with a companion he selects, or a $350 scholarship in any Iowa college or university. "His essay advanced "carelessness" as the cause lor highway accidents and "educating people'' as the cure. The sparkling essay stressed "educating people" as the cure for carelessness. Cresco Student Second Helen Lyons, Cresco high school freshman, won the second prize of ?50 cash, while Eleanor Dykhouse, Rock Rapids high school, submitted the essay which won third prize of $10 cash. More than 50,000 high school students representing schools in approximately three-fourths of Iowa's 99 counties participated in the county district open class and state final contests, with only the first prize winners of the preliminary Eliminations eligible for the final judging.

The itching torture Is quickly soothed and you'll find there's nothing better U relieve the distressing soreness of mos externally caused skin troubles, Moone' Emerald Oil is greaseless, does not stain promotes healing. Money cheerfully re iunded. it jiot satisfied. ;tone contended that "carelessness" on the part of automobile drivers, pedestrians and cyclists is and has been chiefly responsible 'or mishaps on Iowa highways re- iulting in deaths or injuries. Urges Safety Courses Then he wrote: "We have learned in psychology hat one of the most essential hings in getting rid of an evil is to have a desire to get rid of this evii, definite opposition toward it. A strong desire to prevent automobile accidents seems to be wanting. Education would be the most'effective way in which to arouse that desire." He followed by recommending the placing of safety courses in Iowa schools even "at the expense of some other subject." "I am told that because of the already overburdened curriculum in the high schools that we wouldn't have time for it," he wrote. "I believe that this course (safety) is important enough that we should have it even though it be at the expense of some other subject. Is there any use educating people only to have them killed or their minds and bodies wrecked by automobile accidents? Whetstone then asked and answered his own question regarding "what are we going to do about it?" in one stinging paragraph. Judged by Five "What are we going to do about this slaughter on the highways and streets of our state? The answer to this is entirely up to the people. If we wish to get rid ol this unnecessary evil it is sole! within our power. Thank Goi we have no dictator.' Five persons representing state organizations or state divisions o: government judged the essays eligible for the final contest. They included: Sergt. Russell .T.

ATKINS wer came, ending 'Thou shall lovf The End of All Controversy Tuesday in Holy Week, And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man, from that day forth ask him any more questions. Read Matthew 22:34-46. All the Gospels report one day in the week of the Crucifixion filled with controversy, but with passion--and Jesus at the center of it. The temple echoes with theologians' controversy atiout immortality, politicians' controversies about law; as though all the passions of an embattled world were released upon one calm and devoted figure. Then the final and majestic ans- all argument: " Love Is the only sovereign resolution of all our controversies. One can not say that love alone will answer all our questions, but it supplies the only temper in which our differences can be resolved. The judgments of love are the only sure judgments, the insights of love the only clear insights, the law of love sums up all legislation--nothing else. Unless our world learns that it is lost. Prayer: True Master of our spirits. Divine Lord of our proud and embattled wills, speak again to us through our tumults and our passions and law anew upon us Thy sovereign commendrrient of love. "O help us banish pride and wrong, Which since the world began Have marred its peace; help us make strong The brotherhood of man." Amen.
