Although geared, perforce, into the German economy for the inescapable reason that there is nobody else with whom to deal, the Swiss have maintained an amazing independence of both thought and action. Nine out of ten are known to be against the nazi ideology and ambition. M o u n t a i n o u s Switzerland- shout one-fourth Iowa's area produces only about a third of its annual food requirements. And where do you think most of the remainder comes from? Not Germany, not France, not Italy. No. It comes from America. Switzerland maintains its own merchant fleet and every tew days ships sail out of New York loaded with American wheat and other foods. The ships are fully lighted, with a spotlight playing on large Swiss flags painted on the ship's sides. Not infrequently, according to Doctor Habicht, submarines, in position to empty their tubes, alter their plans and flick a lieht of greeting. Similarly the British blockade Is lifted for the Swiss ships. They make tneir way past Gibraltar up through the Mediterranean ani dock at Genoa, where the car"os are transferred to special trains and continue to Switzerland in sealed cars. On their return trips, these Swiss ships carry watches to the American market--a total of about 4,000,000 of them last year It is thus that Switzerland pays America .for the food which sustains her population of 4,500 000 lor eight months of the year.

"The need is great, and I am confident that our civilian population will heed the call," he concluded. --V---The -- lOAYS BOUQUE To THE MASON CITY CITIZENS VICTORY COMMITTEE-for bringing to our community another bang-up athletic attraction, a basketball game between our own undefeated Mohawks and another scrappy LindbloriV, Chicago, prep school team.
