ALGONA, IOWA, JUNE, 11 1931 Number 39 WORLD'S HOPE TO WARD OFF SOVIET MENACE Missionary and U. S. Agent Speaks at Church Here. The greatest Question in the World hat must be solved by statesmen nd the public alike is the rise and menace of communism, Dr. B. R. 'tilkerson, -told the Algona. Metho- liat district Brotherhood rally at the Methodist church last Thursday evening. Doctor Fulkerson, who las been a missionary for 20 years n Japan, was vice-consul for the Jnltetl states i n japan at one time. Ho spen several months in Russia imong tho common Russian peasants. Years ago Doctor Fulkerson met he late Czar of Russia in Japan vhen he was only the crown prince. Yt that time feeling between Russia ind Japan was growing tense, and he visit of the crown prince was to offset some of the feeling, 1£ jossible. The visit was not success- ul, and the Russo-Japanese war fol- owed in a few years. Doctor Fulkorson, who was a member of a special committte to meet tho prince and give an official \velcome, gave a history of the meeting and conversation as a back- round for his talk. Czar Condemned Religion. The prince and Doctor Fulkerson had an opportunity for an extended conversation, in which the latter asked the future Czar If the world was not moving steadily away from centralized authority in government. This naturally alluded to the monarchistic form of govern nent, the prince caught the allu sion, and remarked that the doctor must l>e thinking of the Urijite'd States form of government. This Doctor Fulkerson admitted, imd the prince asked for the doo tor's idea of democracy, and the lat ter complied, giving education and freedom of religion as two of the cornerstones. The prince seemed aroused at the idea of education, and the doctor quoted him as saying: "Education—the theory of America Is to educate the common dogs, so that the common dogs can help govern the country." The prince laughed at the idea of educating the common people because of danger from too much knowledge. Speaking of religion, the prince told the doctor: "Religion Is a system devised by men for the purpose of hold the common dog in check." This man speaking, Doctor Fulkerson reminded his audience, was the future Czar of all the Russians, and by virtue of his office became the head of the Russian state church. Tills conversation tpok place only four years before the prince became absolute monarch. Litter when President Roosevelt sent Doctor FulkeYson to Russia on a mission, the docto'r and the Czar met again, and the latter reaffirmed his beliefs in education and religion. Communism Started Years Ago. Thus the germs of communism, incubating for many years had roots in ignorance, with 89 per cent of'the people unable to tell one letter from another, and where the church was used as a political football to rule the people. No wonder, Doctor Fulkerson said, there is hatred, suspicion, greed and all of the dread ideas and ideals of the world involved In the question of communism. Before tlie downfall of the Czar and the World war the Russian farmer paid 57 per cent of his total gross income (not profit) to. ith|e government, both state and religious. The peasant had to live on the remaining 43 per cent. In late years Doctor Fulkerson traveled 4700 miles in Russia, living among the people and studying this problem that the world is now en- davoring to meet. There Is no question greater to statesmen. \ New Phase of Civilization, Communism is a new expression of civilization. Perhaps from It will spring a new hope for the world like a tree springs from the dirt and rotten vegetation, or there may come a dangerous poisonous crop of weeds that will spread to the entire world. This Is the threat that communism holds. . The economic question is the most' dangerous with which the world must deal now. Russia's government headed, by Stalin Is on the theory that the western world and America has me-de a serious mistake In shaping its laws so that large corporations can grasp and hold Immense wealth. In reply to t#e great wealth, of; America as an example of the success of the system ,the Russian smiles and. replies that 60 men control that wealth, and th,e other l25.ogB.000 merely contributed ••••••• In Russia there are 36 broadcast- Ing stations controlled by the government that every night repeat the vlrutes of communism and d. an 6 er3 of capitalism. Loudspeakers are set up in every village and the peasants' only knowledge is that doled out to them by the government. They cannot read—they <#n only listen World Markets tire Threatened. Russia is threatening the wheat, lumbf r, and coal shipping industries of the world. The threat of Bus- wheat, shipped and sold in the world at a time when poverty was never so rampant, and the ground for the seeds of revolution and communism never so fertile. The United States high tariff policy has result- eel In -IS countries raising new and higher tariff walls, and the factories shut down, unable to ship goods, workers are thrown out of work and become tools for communism. Communism may be a success, find if so the rest of the world must prepare to meet its competition in all lines. China is shot through and through with communism. China is dangerous. The 458 million people ha.ve overthrown a dynasty that has existed for 5000 years! If the Chinese are aroused, in which direc- , - tion will they go, Doctor Fulkerson asked. The communists hop e that in 20' years the name of God will be banished from Russia, It is certain that the present generation of Russian will not have much to do with religion. Their teaching in religion has been so wrong that they are unable to see the right. Comtn unistns Counter-Threat. There are some events and trends of thought that indicate a counter- threat to communism. No country has been great without regiglon, and world history Is strewn with the wrecks of nations that forgot or prostituted religion. Within the last few- years there has been a religious uplift and rising all over the world, with a more spiritual and personal religion as a result. In Russia, Spain, China, India, •f.'ipan and many other countries there have been student outbreaks against the present brands of hidebound and ortho'dox religions. Even In Rome, the city of the Vatican, a recent student outbreak was directed against religion. Tho great light Is the fact that students, who read and think are responsible for these uprisings. There is coming to the world a personalized religion, In which each person must feel his own responsibility, and the churches of the world' must change to meet this new tl-fcory. If the churches do not change, they will be overthrown, fo r that is the history of religions and nations alike. To offset this threat of communism then, is the counter-threat of religion against one of the foundation stones of communism. Within the next ten to thirty years the forces of communism and the forces of religion will meet in a battle that will shake the world to its foundations. e*qu4 f?"^wv, *«»*-«'*rTs* T— - --- . iMted States at 70 cents-a bushei, helps Wep the price of grain f - actual fralji »8 WHITTEMORE'S LUTHERANS TO HAVEJMCNIC \Vhittemore, June 9—A St. Paul's Lutheran school picnic will take place next Sunday at the Albert Vaudt grove south of town, and the public is' invited.

P. Zerfass. This attraction was the hit of a great European Olympia circus at the Chicago Stadium last month, and is the first of its kind seen in this country. The rigging and apparatus alone weigh more than eight tons. The county fair management thinks it has been extra-fortunate in dating free attractions. In addition to the Babcock act, othere of equally outstanding merit have been booked. A time-honored feature which is receiving special attention is the fireworks program. As previously announced there will be no fireworks at the fair. The only program this year at which there will >e fireworks will be on the Fourth. The management therefore plans to make this display the largest ever seen at the fairgrounds. A new ball diamond Is being laid out on the west side of the Infield, and the 'ireworks display will take place there, where it can be seen 'from the new grandstand. There will be running horse races and a i complete afternoon program of other events. The dance floor In the Floral hall has been reflnished, and a first class orchestra will be engaged. The Aladdin shows have been contracted for the Midway. The new grandstand is receiving ts final coat of paint. Modern sanitary conveniences have been installed. This grandstand improvement is one of which Kossuth people can be justly proud. The management counts on the usual loyal F.ourth of July support. Expenditures on the new grandstand and for other Improvement have been heavy and the receipts from the celebration, it la hoped, will go far towards' reducing the debt which has been Incurred.

Local Alg 0/ na Beach property owners were somewhat agitated Tuesday by news that the Clear Lake assessor had materially boosted their valuations. For example, the former L. J. Dickinson lot and cottage, now owned by Dr. R F Kunz, Mason City dentist, 'was boosted from $700 to $1700. Apparently the assessor took seriously the data sheet requirements of the new state board of assessment and review, ignored by many assessors. Unless levies are correspondingly reduced, which is deemed unlikely, the resulting high taxes will compel cottage owners of modest means to sell out—if they can—and go elsewhere. A few years ago the city, In the winter time and without notice, extended the town's southern limits to a point a quarter of a mile belo\V Algona Beach, and since then the taxes, Increased by the high city rates, have been burdensome. A hearing on the new assessments is to be held by the council, sitting as a board of review, next Tuesday night. .BEE SUPPLIES A full line of Bee Supplies. Get them of G. E.
