Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 26, 1957, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited ior the Home MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL LXIM Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wires Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY MARCH 26 1957 This Paper Consists of Two One No 141 Beck Challenges Probers Authority The World Around Us Dr Hambro Sticks to Convictions Number 110 EDITORS is one of a series of daily reports by our editor on a trip fay air around the world How people live and how they feel toward America are more em phasized by Mr Hall than scenic features By W EARL HALL SLO Norway In a dimly lighted office of Norways parliament building across the street from the hotel where this is being written I chatted today with one of the worlds great men of our clay and age Carl J Ham bro was my host and it was a case of returning a visit Once I was privileged to entertain this ven erable Norwegian statesman in my Mason City home Dr Hambro has had just about every honor that could be con ferred on him by his fellow Nor wegians and statesmen on the world scene Once he was President of the League of Na tions It fell to him to direct the liquidation of that earlier dream for extending law to the world di mension Much of the time since came into being he has been a spokesman for his countrymen But the really important fact about Cail J Hambro is that he never compromises with principle for political preferment His ca reer has been grounded on the simple virtues which must have been taught to him by Godfear ing parents These he has passed on to four distinguished sons One of these is that one shouldnt HAVE without EARNING An other is that the individual should SUPPORT rather than be SUP PORTED BY his government Not Good Politics Through much of Carl Hambros half century in public life these concepts have not been good pol itics If he had been thinking of tomorrow rather than oL the next generation hed have joined the chorus promising pie in the sky That hasnt been his course He has stuck to his convictions At present Norway is ruled by R Socialist Government remark ably similar lo Britains postwar Labor Government The rule has been to take from those who have and give to those who have not rather than trying lo increase the national product so that there would be more for all Carl Ham bro has been the most eloquent voice for what could be described quite accurately as a progressive conservalivism for Norway Impressive Compliment Its nothing short of amazing therefore that one so out of har mony with the techniques of the demagog should time after lime he honored by those of different viewpoint Al present for exam ple he is president of the Odel sting the larger of Norways two legislative bodies So it has been on a dozen other occasions There could be no more impressive com pliment to the respect he com mands Twenty years ago Hitler let it be known that Dr Hambros se lection for a high office would be distasteful to him confreres responded by choosing him unan imously Another time it was Stalin who found him objection again the same result Nothing to Praise Presently Dr Hambro finds nothing to in Americas foreign policy For one thing he thinks that our financial aid has been a crutch for governments in many countries which deserved to stumble and fall For another he Ihinks that Americas course in the Suez has been even more open to censure than that of Brit ain and France said Dr Hambro is much too trusting He assumes good motives in many who clear ly harbor evil motives Hes much too kind toward Nasser who has surrounded himself by some of Hitlers former butchers He needs what in our Norwegian farmers has been called the grace of II was good to see Carl Hambro on his homegrounds He has com missioned me to transmit grcct ingi for him to a host of American Mends HUNT FOR STORM VICTIMS Kansas National Guardsmen traveling along Highway
