WALKER— for being re-elected chairman of the Cerro Gordo county Society for Crippled Children and Adults. As chairman the past year Mr. Walker has given this worthy organization excellent leadership and much of his tune. The society is to be congratulated on having his service as chairman another year. f* m his brilliant history of the war, "Crusade In Europe,' describes a conversation he once had with a top Russian officer. He writes: "I tried to make him see the virtues of free enterprise. Firmly believing that without a system of free or competitive enterprises, individual political freedom cannot endure, I showed him that, as far as I was concerned, complete state ownership necessarily would involve dictatorship, and that the effort-to escape all dictatorial rule was the reason for America's founding and growth." _ The General was unable to'convince his Russian counterpart, who seemed thoroughly sold on government fay dictation and had only contempt . ,, ... „,,,., f or / ree institutions.
