Aiwclatwl UolM Fran rmi LMM Ctpirt One Mans Opinion A If W EARL HALL Monoginj Editor A Motor Trip to Eastern Seaboard I am recently returned from a motor jaunt which took me and Mrs Hall over 2500 miles o highway and into 10 states all oJ them to the east of Iowa In this visit with you Id like to repori on some of the things impressed upon my mind during that jaunt The journey I should explain had two major objectives One was to sit in on the national conven tion of the American Red Cross an experience on which I have already reported The other was to put our collegeage daughter on to a TWA plane for anocean hop to Germany Most vivid in my memory as youll understand if youre a par ent is that giant bird taking tb the air on a runway of Idle wild field on Long Island and vanish ing into the eastern sky bound for Gander Shannon London and finally Frankfurt With some others of like interest we watched from a viewing deck on the roof of the central terminal building As both Mrs Hall and I can testify from personal experience your concern is greaterwhen ifs a daughter whos hopping off on an ocean flight than when its you yourself Such worry as we enter tained however proved unwar ranted The transoceanic hop was smooth pleasant and unevent ful A Test of Fidelity Plenary sessions of the Red Cross were held in a huge armory of ancient ancient that there was a sad lack of ventila tion say nothing of aircondition ing And New York City was be ing treated to its first sticky weather of the year From my seat on the platform as vice chairman of the conven tion I could look but overa jam packed auditorium of fanwaving Red Cross workers It would be hard to imagine a more demand ing test of their fidelity Here they were in the very center of the worlds top enter tainment and stores Despite this and despite the physical discom fort occasioned by the heat and humidity in the convention hall these thousands of delegates were remaining loyal to their trust No fairminded person could view this phenomenon and harbor doubts about then dedication and consecration to a great humani tarian cause Atomic War in Backfround Heavy emphasis was given throughout the convention to the role alreadyassigned to the Rec Cross in civil defense and the larger role which would inevitably be handed to the organization in the event the Korean police action should be succeeded by a full scale war that is This was reflected in the con vention sessions which had to do with the national blood program the first aid program in whichthe Red Cross is asked to train 2C million civilians in disaster relief plans and in discussions looking to the recruitment of millions of civil defense volunteers But there was still time for earnest consideration of that hardy old perennial Should the Red Cross permit of financing at the community level by federated fund campaigns This much can be said and without any qualifi cations The vast majority of workers in the Red Cross staff and volun teers alike are vigorously opposed to the suggestion And here are their arguments 1 We gave ita trial once and It didnt work Theres no point in makingthe same mistake twice 2 Conversely the present plan based on a separate roll call and fund drive in March of each year has been highly successful 3 Under a plan of federated irlvinp the federallychartered Red Cross could not be the mas ter of its own destiny 4 The Red Cross has no quarrel whatever with agencies covered by federated But its own very great preference is to go it MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY JULY Iff ThU Two cttanOM Allied Officials
