"Your service has long been the
mainstay of Kiwanis activities, for
oat motto, -We Build,' pertains not
to buildings and cities but to leader
ship and better living. In support of
this motto, boys' and girls' work
committees place particular empha
sis on the three great institutions of
our American way of life: the home,
church, and school
Another important part of Kiwan
is International's program is' aid to
agriculture. In 1946, for instance, it
developed a broad Action Program
aimed to improve rurataufcan rela
tions and to arouse public opinion to
the need for protecting natural re
sources. Aid was given to veterans
returning to farm communities.
As one meanrf of building better
communities, the Kiwanians' Com
mittee on Business Standards set up
a new slogan last year, "Let's be
proud to be businessmen." Under it,
Kiwanians br numerous clubs went to
work to help solve local reconversion
Some of the resulting activities
were, the combatting of "black mar
kets"; making surveys of business
'services needed in communities; con
ducting open forums on labor-man
agement relation problems; conduct
ing postwar industrial surveys and
community-wide forums on postwar
In some cities, the Kiwanis Code
of Ethics was distributed and a QoId
ea Rule Week sponsored for custom
ers and sales-people.
In Rochester, N. Y., Kiwanians
initiated a courtesy campaign to
erase the hurry and fretfulness too
offen met with during the anxious
days of the war. Placards bearing
"Courtesy Always," were
were given to citizens who performed
unusual acts of courtesy. The plan
caught om Visitors to the city com

Community service naturally
means many diferent things to Ki
wanis dubs. At Whitohorse in the
Yukon Territory, it meant purchas
ing two large, war-surplus ware
houses and moving them , into the
city Kiwanians made one into an
indoor skating rihk. The other is
an indoor playground, tor Use during
"severe subzero weather.
'At BateeviUe, Ark., Kiwanians
soil surveys fai their country
and then they enlisted the help of
the Soil Conservation Service In
building needed stock ponds and
drainage projects, and in terracing
some farms. \ ;
Kiwafiis' clubs universally coope
rate with movements sponsored by
Chambers of Commerce in their va
rious communities. They aid in "get

time. ; '
Believing that good citizenship
and Christianity go hand in hand,
these business and professional men
support the churches of their com
munity "in their spiritual aims." In
cluded in the record for such work
during 1946 are the following
achievements; 27,056 special meet
ings held, 1,889 lay preachers sup
plied for needy churches, 4,554 news
paper ads Sponsored, 147,753 children
provided religious education. . ' ?
One of the stories Kiwanians like
to tell has tovdo with the visit of
an editor to Minneapolis, Minn., not
long ago. He helped" a blind man to
cross a busy intersection. Arrived
safely at the other side, the blind
