SPEAKER AT LAKE MILLS Mason City Man Lays Stress on Responsibility of Young America LAKE MILLS May Hills enjoyed one of the finest ob servances of JTemorial day this year that it has to the history of the town The weather was ideal all business places were closed the American Legion members under whose auspices the program was held turned out in large numbers E G Dunn the speaker addressed an audience of 600 people The usual rites at the cemeteries were performed after which the pro gram at Arlington park was given The Rev Miss Ada May Nash of the Asbury M B church gave the hi vo cation and the Lake Mills high school glee club gave two selections under the direction of Miss Alfhild Boe One of Mr Dunns first statements was that r nation which will stop in its throbbing pulsing Ufa to breathe its prayers over the graves of its departed heroes is in safe hands and its citizens are better for having done so Speaker Asks Question Does young America realize the responsibilities resting upon her shoulders was a question asked by 2Ir Dunn From a barren plain of prairie dogs and coyotes our forefathers have1 turned it over to Us as the bread basket of the world left us fertile fields towns of schools and churches and a popula tion of 120000000 of people kneel ing in devotion to Almighty God and all this in one generation Mr Dunn gave a beautiful eulogy to the soldiers of the Civii war and told of the sacrifices made follow ing with the question Does young America realize her responsibilities to generations yet unborn The blessings we enjoy today are the heritage of those sacrifices In the past 10000 years every experiment has failed stated Mr Dunn but In the short period of 1BQ years all these wonderful blessings have accumulated in America Here everyone has a chance Has One Criticism Our government is the brighest jewel in the diadem of civilization stated Mr Dunn but I have one criticism of ths American people and that iswith those who dodge their responsibilities I have no sympathy for those who belittle America and her insti tution he said I have often heard that America played a small roll in the late war but a brief examina tion of the facts in the case com bats this statement in a hurry The first four years of the war France and England were moving their men backward rather than forward in the line of battle Then came the American doughboys and in less than four months after his eatry into the conflict they had the enemy moving backward America Is rich in heritage Will you meet your share of the respon sibilities in the future asked the speaker When you stand at the graves of departed dead from three great wars can you Americans ever pay debt you owe your fore fathers It behooves every man woman and child so to live and do that he will be a credit and help to his nation rather than a detriment and hindrance God bless you all to that end Distributed by R M DICKENS 616 So Federal Avc Mason Oily Iowa Phone 008 If You Have

not be determined until well into the night when complete returns would be in It seemed however as if the task cut out for the labor party was a difficult one to achieve as while it had a comfortablo lead over the con servatives It needed to take a ma jority of the remaining unreported seats to get a clear majority Ten Women Elected There were eight women Jn the recently dissolved parliament but already today at least ten were in the new parliament of whom six were elected on the labor ticket The conservative women returned thus far were the Americanborn heiress Lady Astor whose plurality was

Sir Austen Chamberlain foreign minister eked thru with only 43 votes Most surprising of all to many were the comparatively few seats which the liberals were able to show for their Intensive campaign Altho polling a fair proportion of the pop ular vote they converted it into seats only rarely It was impossible to tell how the women many of them newly enfran chised voted except that they did not offer unusual support to mem bers of their own sex More than 5000000 were eligible to vote for the first time among these being the flappers between the ages of 21 and 25 Two GAR Veterans Attend

major political parties the Conservatives and Laborites com mitted to safeguarding of Indus try In varying degress leaders of big business in Great Britain are counting upon aid from further tar iff barriers in planning their courae after the general election The Liberals are sticking to the traditional free trade policy of the United Kingdom but only a surpris ing landslide would give that party a stronger position that that of pos sibly holding the balance of power in the new parliament Remember Old Style The economic side of the cam paign has in some respects been reminiscent of the days when the full dinner pail was a vital political slogan in the United States Imt without mention of protection in speeches and platforms The Eng liau while showing symptoms of abandoning free tidde still shy at using the American word prefer ring the euphemism safeguard ing A more direct United States in terest in this phase of Great Brit ains policy can be found in the effect of higher tariff liar riers upon the diminishing Ameri can trade balajnce Balance Favors U S In 1925 the United States sold worth of merchandise to Great Britain and bought S412 704535 worth leaving a trade bal ance of in favor of the United States The Empire Market ing Board then began to spend mil lions in strengthening the Buy Bri tish Gods movement and it is now considered almost unpatriotic tr buy foreigngoods of any descrip tion By 1926 the sales of American goods In the Unitd Kingdom hnd dropped to At Uie same time American imports from Kntfland Ireland Scotland and Wales were down to reducing the trade balance to 195304 fi loss of 532856500 Predict Tariff Wall Economic experts predict that erection of tariff walla nronnrl United Kingdom will accelerate the diminution of this balance In this respect it is interesting to note that neither the Conservatives nor the Laborites Have any that of tariff for revenue All that is asked in any case is an adequate safe guarding against foreign goods which compete with British indus tries ia the home market This question has already caused considerable trouble to Prime Min ister Stanley Badlwin Helost one election because he went to the country in favor of safeguarding ivhen the people were not prepared forit The first Labor government then backing Free Trade went into power at that time Ministers Beach Agreement Mr Baldwins stand this year in regard to safeguarding almost dis rupted his cabinet but on the sur face at least the ministers have reached an agreement as to limited safeguarding but only for those in dustries which can prove before a government tribunal that they need it vitally The Labor position Is similar This is a decided change In senti ment for that party The working people have always thot a high tar iff would result in Increased living costs and their one bitter experi ment on a wheat tariff which raised the price of bread to about 25 cents a loaf still rankles Expect No Restriction It is not beieved however that any attempt will be made to restrict the flow of food stuffs Canadian and Australian canned goods and certain other Empire grown foods get the benefit of a small preferen tial tariff but California Oregon and other American states are still able to sell the United Kingdom millions of dollars worth of fruits and canned goods Some of the American products which are likely to feel tha weight of an extensive scheme include safe ty razors talking machines films cameras farm implements automo biles and iron and steel Hampton DeMolays to Receive Honors HAMPTON May
