Monday. March 9.9, 1944 7 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE AMERICAN WAY WORTH SPEAKING (FOR - CAMPBELL I Says It's Up to Teacher il' To "Sell" Long Range / Education Program ' "i£ the American wuy is worth dying for, then it is at least worth speaking for," Lee H. Campbell, president of the Iowa State Teachers association, told the Cerro Gordo county educational council at a dinner meeting at the Cerro Gordo hotel Saturday evening. "Eight o[ the boys who came to }ny classroom with talks prepared on topics o£ their own choosiing such as : Iowa tiie First State in the Nation' and 'America the Best Nation in the World' are now dead," said the association president, who is also speech instructor at the Spencer high school. "And for what?" he asked. "As a teacher who has helped boys to believe they have lived in a country worth dying for, I feel it is the teacher's responsibility to help answer that question. It is his job to help boys and girls to give their lives constructively and to live them constructively, rather (ban to die. "We can only hope that boys and, girls in high school can become good citizens as we teachers ourselves show a vital citizenship," said Mr. Campbell, leading up to the idea that it is the immediate fluty o[ a teacher as a citizen and as a member of the count;* council to know the facts, have convictions, and to sell to his legislator an all-embracing, long range school program, good for Iowa boys and girls and lor teachers--one lhat will give in the future, laws for an improved educational system. The county coimcil should be a very important cog in the state organization--a cog which moves other cogs, and ultimately the county council will be so recognized, said the speaker. The county council, he pointed out, is in a "better position to influence its legislators because its members live there and are aware of the peculiar local situation of the count}'. The county council should have knowledge of some .common immediate objective to work at us a co-operative group along with the state association and eventually the national association, explained Mr. Campbell. The council is so important a. unit in the state that in view of what needs to be done, it must succeed, not in one county alone, but in 99 counties. - "I take my hat off to the Cerro Gordo county council which has shown a fine example of co-operative action in contributing 125 per cent of its quota to the war and peace fund," said Mr. Campbell. The state, he pointed out, has S4QO more to raise of its $lo,500 quota for this fund. A specific and immediate objective to use that money for should be planned, lie said. In referring to the legislative program, Mr. Campbell mentioned t h e teacher retirement p l a n , which he said, must and will come. Other sources o£ taxation to support the property tax must be shown so that when the retirement plan is recommended, all the people o£ Iowa can see at the same time that there are other ways of obtaining money than by the property tax. It is the intention of the organization to co-operate with all organizations in Iowa that arc willing to study and help the present code commission, Mr. Campbell continued. The council must be assured that the general assmbly will give consideration to the recommendations of the commission, he said, and added that the teachers mast lake up their political duties. In the open forum discussion following the talk, it was brought out tluU many persons had the ] erroneous idea that teachers had some form o£ social security as have other employes. In answer I to the question as to whether a 1 city retirement plan tended to I delay a state retirement plan, Mr. 1 Campbell replied that rather to the contrary, it tended to disseminate information jn regard to retirement insomuch that a state Cerro Gordo Mark $3,474,581 retirement would prove more adequate. The employing ot a year round lobbyist to get the major part o£ the legislative program adopted was also discussed. It was emphasized that such action would not, however, be taken for the mere purpose of creating a position just as a position for someone. It was rather suggested that he be someone outside the teaching profession. II. H. Boyce, high school instructor here and a member of the state executive board, introduced the sneaker. Dave C. Tripp, president of Ihe county council, presided at the meeting. A short business meeting followed the dinner program. Mr. Campbell had held conferences throughout the day with representatives of the various teachers organizations in the city and county and had appeared on the 4:Ia KGLO Forum, talking on the subject, "Iowa's Next Step in the Educational Program." Big 3 Need to Check Up on Progress By DEWITT MACKENZIE Associated Press War Analyst There would seem to be close connection between the rapidity with which Hitler's tribulations are mounting and the report in London's d i p- lomatic quarters that Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill m a y m e e t a g a i n soon. The European war is moving m i g h t y fast, and it's gaining m o m e n t u m . What with the blood - letting being inflicted on thu G e r- muns by the tireless red armies, and the hell .that's being poured into Hitlerdom by the Anglo- American air forces, we stand at a moment when great events can happen without warning. It's, reasonable, therefore, that the big 3 should want to check up with one another and (perhaps) on one another: This is the crucial time when each o£ the trio must know exactly what's in the minds of the others--when none can afford to fall out of step. We are approaching bin new problems which the 3, with their expert advisers, may be able to deal with best in a face-tb-face meeting. Both military and international political questions are piling lip, and of these the political are probably the more troublesome. Now of course this is no time to start 11 victory parade up Broadway. We've got bloody work ahead of us. Still, the allies must make plans for eventualities well in advance of the events. One thing they've got to know is exactly what happens when Hitler yells "kamerad," as yell he will in due course. Just how is the reich going to be dealt with, and what part is each ally to play? Europe's f u t u r e may depend on that. ; However, the red armies aren't at the German border yet, by a long shot. The big news as this is written is that the onrushing red forces are actually in Rumania, having crossed the great Dniester river and smashed through the German defenses on a front of more than 40 miles. The red forces arc straining every nerve to take advantage of the nazi collapse. , Tension in the Balkans, especially in Rumania, has intensified as red troops push into Bessa- rabia. The British radio is bob- barding the panicky Rumanians with warnings to desert the axis before it's too late. COUNTY RECORD 139% OF QUOTA IN BOND DRIVE North Iowa Counties in Heneman's District All Top Iowa Record Cerro Gordo county was credited with 53,474,581 in war bond purchases during the 4th war loan drive, against a quota of $2,497,000. it was revealed Monday by F. C. Hcneman, district chairman during the drive. The county's 139 per cent record compared with a stale mark of 1Z9 per cent of quota but Cerro Gordo fell down on K bond purchases, reaching only 96 per cent of its quota as compared with a state mark of 124 per cent, according to the final report on the campaign by the federal reserve bank of Chicago. E bond purchases credited to the county totaled $1,052,844 against a quota of $1,101,050 set by the state headquarters. Other North Iowa counties did better, every one in Mr. Heneman's district topping (he slate's percentage on all types of bonds sold and all but Cerro Gordo beating Ihe Iowa E bond mark. Here are the final sales figures for the district together with the percentage sold against the E bond quota and the total quota: CHERVIL BASIL 3-It Six Easily Grown Herbs for Victory Garden By DEAN HALUDAY Released by Genual Press Association COUNTY SALES Cerro Gordo 53,474,581 Hancock HumbokH Kossuth ..

Worth, Winnebogo Rank 2nd and 3rd i DCS Moines, (fP)--The state war f i n a n c e committee announced Monday that Iowa ranked 3rd among the states in the percentage by which E bond quotas were oversubscribed. Sales of E bonds (the small denomination b o n d customarily bought by individuals) totaled 582,075,000 or 124 per cent of the $66,000,000 quota. North Dakota and Wyoming lopped Iowa with 181 and 152 per cent, respectively. On sales to individuals, including E bonds, Iowa ranked fourth behind Florida, Oregon and North Dakota, in that order. Iowa sales totaled $122,975,000 or 119 per cent of the 5503,000,000 quota. Sales of all bonds in the slate during the drive totaled $228,000,000 or 129 per cent of the $177,000,000 quota. The figures, announced after final corrections were made by the federal reserve bank on sales by counties, included approximately $6,000,000 worth of bonds bought by Iowa men and women in sen-- ice. Their purchases were allocated to their home counties. Heading the Iowa counties in the E bond sales was Pocahontas, which sold 211 per cent of its quota. Sales totaled $889,690 and the quota was $420,900. Charles E. 'Watts of Pocahontas was county chairman. Worth county was second with sales totaling $526,596 against a Finnish Government Reported Ready to Move From Helsinki Stockholm. (/P)--Finnish government departments were reported Monday to be preparing to abandon Helsinki for a temporary capital in the north if necessary, strengthening the impression that Finland's last chance for peace with Russia has now slipped away. Travelers returning from Helsinki said that Finnish officials were getting their affairs in readiness for hasty departure and declared that virtually all children in the city had been evacuated to the country. The belief prevailed here that in failing to accept the armistice proposals submitted by Moscow the Finns had closed the door to further negotiation and that they now have no alternative except to fight the war to a bloody end. The main barrier to acceptance of the Russian terms still seemed to be the soviet demand for internment of the German troops now in Finland--a demand the Finns evidently regard as impossible of f u l - fillment. | How To Hold FALSE TEETH More Firmly In Place Do your f.ilsc teeth annov and cm- Ibarrass by slipping, dropping or wnb- 1 hling when you cat.
