Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - July 6, 1953, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the Home CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBOR S HOME EDITION Associated Press and United Press Full Lease wires I Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY JULY 6 1953 This Papor Consists o Two OM No its stiu OUR Red Cross A Radio Commentary By W HALL Managing Editor O1TTING in on the recent nationa convention of the American Re Cross in Washington strengthene me in two resolutions I made jus nine years ago while on a wa correspondence mission in th European theater One of these resolutions was tha never again would I be guilty o SELLING AMERICAN YOUTF SHORT the other was that neve again would I be guilty of SELL ING THE AMERICAN RED CROSS SHORT You see I had seen both ou boys and our Red Cross in actio under fire Both had measured u to their responsibilities magnif cently Neither had been foun wanting even when the demand upon them were heaviest Ther was a job to be it go done Theyre Both Unchanged Well I can report to you tha our youngsters of today are th worthy brothers and sisters o those who were doing the fightin and dying for us a decade ago They were present in large num her and played a vital role in th business of this convention And I can report to you a unqualifiedly that the Red Cros of today is the Red Cross tha troublous era known as World War II The times have changed true So have some of the tasks But the Red Cross has not comfort to those in dis tress is the central function of this organization of mercy whether that distress be wrought by war or by natural phenomena such as tornadoes or floods There has been no deviation from that goa since the Red Cross foundations were laid by Henri Donant anc Clara Barton Ike Knew Red Cross TMy high regard for the L Red Cross was based on my closeup observations of its works on the beachhead in the hospitals in London and Paris and in the field Its concernfor our fighting men was akin to that of parents in an amazing degree It was this sort of thing Im sure that prompted President Eisen bower when at the closing session of the 1953 convention he opened his heart and delivered what tome was the most eloquent tribute to an organization Ive ever heard II was superb There was of course this dif ference between Mr Eisenhower and me with respect to the Rec Cross role in World War I should be the first to acknowledge it I saw only tiny fragments oi the picture he saw it in its en tirety He Was in Earnest For 11 long years at least the President observed in im pressive earnestness I have been trying to ntake the American Red Cross understand how deeply grateful I am for the work that I have seen that I have exper ienced and indeed the kind of work for which I have felt person ally responsible because any commander in the field is re sponsible for the morale of his men That is his business He lives with it No moral factor in wars that America has to wage is more important than the AmericanRed Cross In his opening remarks Ike had flashed that infectious smile for which he is famous But as he moved into his remarks about the Red Cross wholly without notes or manuscript he was solemn of face and serious of voice Contact Recalled For this and many other things he continued I have been trying to say thank you and I have said it But I have the frus trating feeling that I have never really been able to convey the depth of the sentiments in my heart on this particular subject And so I have usually resorted to attempting to tell something of what I saw some little feeble description of what I experienced It struck me almost 11 years ago today when I went to my first Red Cross meeting in London We dedicated a club and the thing that struck me that day was this Everybody in the Red Cross had discovered one great truth of life and is practicing it There is no satisfaction in life except as it is experienced through people Most Share With Others Consider a picture the Presi dent suggested A picture would pall on any one of us eventually no matter who its artist no matter how much we appreciated less we at the very least had the of describing it to someone in whom we were inter CONTINUED ON PACE 2 Sunday Storrn Rocks State By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A gigantic cleanup faced most of Iowa Monday aftei lolent
