They had anticipated return to the airport before 1 o'clock, but they were hemmed In by spectators at the Kiwanls mooting and they were, unable \o get away till "after that-hour.

Highwaymen Take Money and Clothes from West Bend Man The West Bend Journal tells following interesting story: the sota license plate on it, and Bob, not having pencil, remembered the Bob Kinkade had /in experience " umber s till he could get to a farm-. with twn imi,i „„ ™ ^.r , TT ! nouse ' where he wrote them down, with two hold-up men Monday. He He had the farmer take him to the left early that morning, with Des Molnes ns destination, to look for work, and he wae using the hitchhiking method of transportation. Waiting at an oil station at Algona, Bob got into conversation with a couple of young men who Said they were going to Dee Molnes and that if he didn't mind being crowded he could ride with them. Bob decided this was as good a way as any. They stopped at Ames for lunch. Three miles from Des Moines, the young men said they wanted to see a party, and eo turned off on a side- road. Suddenly they stopped, and one got out. The other pressed something against Bob's side, told 'him to get out, and then ordered him to take off his. overcoat, coat, vest, trousers, and a wrist watch he was wearing. Bob did as he was told, and the pair proceeded to leave. This was about 3 o'clock, and it wae raining. Bob asked them not to leave him in that condition, so they threw him a pair of overalls and his overcoat, and 'beat it. The car had a Mlnne- •*• H, B HALLOCK, 66; FORMER EDITOR AT BURTJS DEAD Hi B. Hallock, whom elderly Bancroft and Burt citizens' of the late 90's recall, Is dead. His first wife deceased, was a daughter o'f the late Mi 1 , and Mrs. Dennison Paine, who farmed in Portland township for a time and then lived successively at Burt and Algona. She was a sister of the late Geo. W. and C. E. Paine and of the surviving E. E; Paine, Burt; Mrs. Geo. S. Tyndale, Carroll'; Prof. F. D. Paine, head of the Ames electrical department; and police station at Des Molnes, where he reported the affair. Bob had had In mind calling, on some of his wife's relatives there, but their address wae in his billfold, which was taken, but by the use of a telephone directory he located them. He afso called on Assistant Attorney General Wisdom, former superintendent of schools here. After-spending the night at Des Moines, Bob thought the best thing would be to .return to West Bend. He telephoned his wife, and she and his father met him at St. Joe Tuesday evening. In the bill fold which the hold-up men took, was a $50 <postoffice money order and about $11 in currency, besides an Identification cai-d telling the finder to .notify F. H. Kinkade, West Bend, Bob's father. Wednesday morning Mr. Kinkade received a letter from Des Molnes telling him that the writer had found the billfold'. No further word has been, received, but no doubt Bob will ' get the money order back, though will still be out his suit and the wrist watch. Harry Paine, who lives nia. in Callfor- .

B. Jamison, bachelor, former Iowa (Shenandoah) democratic congressman who. practices law at Washington, P. C., and as a hobby writes weekly political letters for a large string of newspapers, will remember his frequent references and his evident devotion to his aged mother. During the last few weeks, Mrs. Jamison, who was in 'her 80's, had been mortaly sick, and a week ago she died. In Mr. Jamison's Window Seat release for this week's papers, he wrote: : Mother left us last evening at 7:30 in a sweet and -peaceful sleep; no struggle,' no suffering, only quiet, prayers, and stillness as the •evening shadows fell. This is written Thursday morning early, May 5. I am trying.to rejoice in her, in her life, the wonderful memories, her goodness, her devotion, in her present happy state, and not to be saddened too much by her going. To ask to have her back'would be only selfish. . . • I am thankful, to the one who instituted the word "mother." Someway I can't think of any other word that comprehends so much and so well; above ajl,other human words it reveals the depths and the heights of eternal goodness. ( She' went with complete assurance. She had no regrets. Nor did I. I am so glad that she had said, over and over again, that she never, knew what a cross word was from me. Her faith in her Saviour, her love of the Father, her life of activity, always and only In the one direction—good—will be a sermon, and will last, In its effects, until the end of eternity/! As I looked at her fading away, I nought of the two sets of com- nandmehts, the ten given to Moses n the Old'Testament and the two given by Christ Himself In the New Testament.

But actually physically, we can't get away. We are tied down by a thousand obligations: obligations to self, obligations to community, obligations to the nation. In our country and abroad we shall have major problems as long as this generation lives. It may be doubted that we shall ever get back to the calm and quiet, of the days before the war. We are going through ..immense social changes effecting home, com munity, and nation. We must recognize this fact and regard it with an open mind; in such times as these we need open-mindedness, un derstanding, and tolerance. We have had a great splritua awakening relating to our duty t relieve human suffering. The de velopment of real character among men and women goes on in bac times as in good. And after all 'the formation of -good character is th most important thing in life. ' It eeems that the best. recipe f o financial security is to live withi: our means. This was the practlc of. our .forefathers, and we. hav found nothing better. Work on th old standards is what Is needed. W owe a duty to the world to earn ou living and help others to do likewise We must keep faith as "Job" di so many centuries ago. Jehova said unto him, "Thine own righ •hand can save thee," God Is sayln the same thing to us today.
