All of hese great measures are based on our position in international af- 'airs and upon the principle that o protect ourselves and exercise our duties, we must be strong. "No doubt in the minds of many the election was an important affair. It was a rather peculiar election. One principal candidate went about the country seeking he votes of the people. The other principal candidate was duly elected to the presidency prior to Nov. 2 by 'pollsters,' radio commentators and newspaper and magazine editors. While the latter sat comfortable, the other candidate, although garnering less than half of the votes of the people, collected the majority of the electoral college, who, under our system, really elects the president. Discusses Far East "Probably one of the most important actions in international affairs affects the Far East. It seemed to be the policy of this administration to insist on the hinese nationalist government taking Chinese communists to their bosom and form a coalition government for China. Such a policy seems incomprehensible in the light of what has happened in Europe whenever the Communists joined the government. Bulgaria, Romania, .Poland and Czechoslovakia are monuments to the folly of such a program. Walter H. Judd, congressman from Minnesota, who is probably our best informed person on conditions in China, states: 'Our policy has been to establish a coalition in China between communists and Chiang's Kuomintang, notwithstanding witnessing the inevitable results of coalitions with communists in Poland, Romania and Czechoslovakia.' I leave it to the listeners to find the co-ordination in principle, if any, between policies of this country as to Europe and as to the Far East. "It is interesting in this respect to observe that in 1948 it has been quite definitely established that communists in America have, for many years, been engaged in spy activities and the rifling of our state department for secret docu- 3 Injured in Auto Accidents Three persons were hospitalized in Mason City Thursday as the result of 2 auto accidents, one involving 3 cars and a snow plow, near here Thursday morning. Foggy weather hampered vision. The plow was operating at about 6 miles per hour on highway 65, 4 miles north of Mason City, when the auto of Mr. and Mrs. Seymour Mork, Nye, Wisconsin ran into the back end of it, authorities reported. The plow operator went up the road to flag traffic and 2 more cars became involved in the scramble. One driven by Carl Rooth, Hinsdale, 111., had stopped behind the Wisconsin car but another driven by Leslie Graverson, 20, Plymouth, came up behind, hit Rooth's and upset. In the first mishap Mrs. Mork suffered lacerations. She and her husband were both treated at Park hospital and released. Mrs. Floyd Graham, route one, Clear Lake, was treated at Mercy hospital for cuts and bruises after the car in which she was riding slid into a truck. The truck, driven by Guy True, 531 12th S. E., swung ,wide on the shoulder of highway 18, 2A miles west of Mason City but the Graham car, driven by Patricia Joe Graham, 18, slid into it, the report said. Miss Graham driving east on highway 18 was attempting to pass another car when the accident occurred, according to the report. She and her 2 brothers, Jack 13, and Billy, 8, on their way to the hospital to get their tonsils removed, were not injured. 46 Eagle Scouts at Banquet; Makeever and White Elected ODOM TO BE OFF AGAIN—Captain William P. (Bill) Odom, 29, will pilot the Beech- craft Bonanza he's shown with above when he seeks a world record 5,000 mile non-stop flight from Hawaii to New York early in January. His plane is the same model as that owned and operated by the Major funeral home in Mason City, shown below, and used as an air ambulance. The Major plane, which has a cruising speed of 175, can" make any U. S., Canadian ox- Mexican airport without an overnight stop. At right is Bob Major with brother Max, the pilot, at left. Odom in April, 1947, circled the globe with Milton Reynolds in 78 hours, 55 minutes. Less than 4 months later he soloed in the same plane on an almost identical course in 73 hours, 5 minutes. In his January flight, he will be after a world record for airline dis- tance for all light airplanes. The present mark, 11 years old, is held by a Russian. Odom's plane differs from Majors in that it is equipped with special wing tip fuel tanks to add range to the course. ments.

"Forty-six Eagle scouts attended the Winnebago council's annual Eagle banquet at the All Vets Social Center at Clear Lake Wednesday night with Don Starner, president from Hampton, presiding. Jack Makeever, son of Mr. and Mrs. H. D. Makeever, 1018 Jefferson N. W., was elected president for the new year. Hubert White, son of Mr. and Mrs. F. A. White, 702 4th S. W., was chosen vice president. Makeever is a 3rd year industrial economics student at jlowa Stats college. White is a freshman at Iowa Teachers. Scout Executive J. W. Norfolk introduced the following scouts who qualified for Eagle rank during 1948: Wayne Moldenhauer and Ron Matson of Charles City; David Foster of Sheffield; Carroll Usher of Rowan; John Reuber, Jerry Schiffman, Nick Lagios and Jack Grove of Mason City. Robert Dpubet of Charles City also qualified during the year but was unable to be present. Each man introduced himself and told what he was now doing. The largest number were those now in college. Some are in schools as far away as California, Massachusetts and New Jersey. E. W. Lilley of Mason City was the oldest Eagle present. He received his rank in this council 20 years ago. Field Scout Executive Roy McKinney and Al Duitman showed slides of the development and activities at Camp Roosevelt during the past several years in order that those who have been gone could be brought up on a vital part of the program. Plans were started whereby a canoe trip for this group will be set for August, 1949. Mitchell county Bernard B. "Probably in 1948 no action of our government has been more important than the air lift which is sustaining the people in Berlin. Why the gentleman who made the agreetments at Potsdam as to administering Berlin would not provide for a definite road in and out of the city under our control and that of our allies is difficult to understand. Having gotten into that fix, however, we could not, without surrendering to communism, fail to do all possible to maintain our position. "This has been done by the American air lift aided by the air force of our allies. This affair is not only important in 1948 for the fact that it is sustaining our sections of the city, but because of its far reaching effect in maintaining the whole position of America in international affairs. Historically I believe it will be regarded as one of the important acts of 1948. "On the whole, there is considerable turmoil yet in the world and fighting in many places. The rule of law and procedures for settlement without war as envisaged by the United Nations charter are a long way from realization. We all may hope for better progress in the years to come when the threat of war may be resolved by the conciliatory process of the Anderson, Osage; Anthony W. Falk, Romanus H. Mayer, Stacyville.

WE SHOULDER YOUR BURDEN United Nations action but that time has not yet arrived. Reduced Taxes "In our domestic economy it is of some importance to observe that the poor old 80th Congress reduced taxes paid by the citizens for the first time in about 16 years. Considering the problems for the future, this may stand out in later years as an important accomplishment or at least a passing phase in progress towards solution of our many problems. • "In the field of labor and management relations, it is reported that there have been fewer strikes and less loss to laboring people in 1948 than in recent previous years. However that may be, there is turmoil in that field. It has been my personal view that controversies arising between labor and management should wherever possible, be brought to a solution without strikes. We are all so dependent upon each other in the modern world that millions of people can be brought to disaster by work stoppages in certain key industries. Utopia Not Here "I am not one who believes that Utopia is at hand, either internationally or domestically. A fair understanding of ourselves must lead to the conclusion that as individuals we are far from perfect. When we reach that conclusion we can then realize that groups of individuals and nations are also far from perfect. The most that we can hope for is to establish I certain correct basic principles which will constitute a goal for all of us to seek. Such a goal was set in 1215 when the Magna Charta was signed by King John at Runnymede. Another goal was set up when our Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776. "The basic principle of both of these great documents is the freedom of individuals to develop themselves to the best of their capacity and the right that disputes may be determined by a jury trial of the peers of the persons charged. Around these principles of freedom for more than 700 years the Angle Saxon world has developed our system of free government." Realty Transfers Shields, Katherine and Donald C.

Lions Hear Story About Rome Emperor A dramatic story of how Hadrian, one of Rome's most beneficent emperors, learned the lesson of unselfishness was related to the Mason City Lions club Wednesday noon by Ed Payne of Michigan City, Ind., a past international president. The tale opened at a spot along the sea of Galilee when Hadrian, then a Roman captain stationed at Tiberius, passed along a field and tarried to watch a venerable man planting a fig sappling. "But you're old," observed the young captain. "You never will live to enjoy the shade or the fruit of the tree that you plant." Planted for Sous "I'm planting this tree for my sons and the sons of my sons— those who follow me," the venerable man replied. The story closed with a banquet room scene in which Hadrian, now elevated to the emperorship, was receiving the acclaim of his Galil- lean subjects. An uninvited guest put in appearance and was admitted to the gathering. In a napkin-covered basket, he bore luscious figs for his emperor. He was the tree-planter of other days and the basket contained fruit from the tree which he had set out for the benefit of those who followed him. Richly Rewarded In return, he received a rich How To Relieve Bronchitis Creomulsionrelievespromptly because it goes right to the seat of the trouble to help loosen and expel germ laden phlegm and aid nature to soothe and heal raw, tender, inflamed bronchial mucous membranes.
