D.-(/P)- Faced by a political tangle unique in state history ns the result of the conviction of Governor William Longer on federal conspiracy charges nnd the claim of the lieutenant governor of the state, to the office. North Oakotnns Monday nervously surveyed a situation that brought federal troops to its cafl- ital city ns a precaution against violence. Conviction of Governor Langer created two unrelated tense situation?: First, fears of violence against Federal Judge Andrew Miller who will impose the sentence on Langer anc' gallon, police searched his apartment toln . associates convicted of conspir- again and found a trunk and numerous other articles that belonged to the missing woman. At the same time in Brighton, Eng., n trunk containing a woman's torso was; found in a railway luggage room and officers said they also had found the legs of the body.

This fact centered attention of the Brighton murder trunk, a cheap affair of British make, as well as upon the bit; green wardrobe trunk found in Poderjay's apartment.

Polj'.ce said she evidently knew the trunk, drehses, jewelry and books belonging to Miss Tufverson. Vienna police turned Capt. Poder- jay's story of his relations with Agnes Tufverson, missing American woman, topsy turvy and announced at the conclusion of a dey of. fast-moving investigation that they believed the woman is. dead. | To be exact, he wore sandals, a loin cloth and a short white cape over his shoulders. (Later he described himself as "the American Gandhi.") Anyway, he wore so little that he * caused no end of consternation and was promptly hustled out of view by Sergeant-at-Arms Ches\ey Jurneyand half a dozen policemen. It was at that point that Senator Frederic C. Walcott of Connegticut, a Republican if ever there was one, demanded: "What do you want to arrest him for? Probably he's the only sane man in Washington." There's a certain amount of evidence that Walcott was giving voice to an opinion widely held not only in Washington, but also in the country outside. To he brutally frank, however, one rnust admit that nearly all congressmen, as well as most New Dealers, harbor an idea that the rest of the nation is not crazy, but just plain dumb.

I believe that we leave too many things, for them to decide, trusting to their knowledge of danger. We think they have the same perspective we have—that the many accidents have registered in their minds the same as they have in ours with resulting caution. Clu'ldren Forget Not, so. Probably not the smallest fraction of one per cent of children have ever actually known a boy or girl who was drowned, or a man or woman, either. These two things added together make the situation plain. If our children are to be saved from risk, it is absolutely the parent's duty to save them—if possible. Because it goes something like this as a rule. "Johnnny, you mustn't go in that river again because three people were drowned right there last summer. It is dangerous." Then Johnnny scoffs, "Why, that was ages ago. Nothing ever happens there now. I tell you it's perfectly safe, mother.

Langer's running mate two years tigo but now the leader of an opposition faction, awaited his arrival here in expectation that he would tnke immediate steps to advance his claims to the governorship on the grounds that the verdict of guilty returned this morning against Langer and four associates automatically disqualified the governor from office.

Laiiger's Sentence Postponed As Lunger stood in federal corut Monday and heard the court defer sentence until June 29—two days after the June primary in which he is -i candidate for re-election—Olson .conferred with political friends. He took the oath of office as governor but did not file it. Lawyers studied methods to be employed in attempting to oust Langer through court action. Two truck loads qf federal troops moved from Fort Lincoln near here under authority from troop headquarters in Omaha and were stationed before the federal building as the court convened. StRle Politics in Turmoil The gubernatorial situation threw state politics into turmoil. Langer said he intended to "fight to the last" to retain his office. Before the executive offices were posted the sheriff of thi? county and a deputy under Langer's orders to prevent any person from entering the quarters. The move was taken as a precaution against a surprise move. Langer. noted for his frequent use of the National Guardsmen to enforce his several moratorium and embargo proclamations, said he would use "force" if necessary to retain office. tion If Debt Issue Is Forced Commander Alger H.

The governor and his four close political associates convicted with him face a maximum sentence of two years imprisonment and ;; fine of SIO^OO They gave notice that they would file motions for a new trial and said they planned appeals in case their motions are denied tomorrow. Mob Violence Feared The jury's verdict returned Sunday morning at 12:14 a. m. after nearly fiO hours of deliberation, caused a turmoil in North Dakota politics unpar- allcd in the history of the state. Since the trial began. May 22, tension lias been high throughout the slate and with talk of mobs mobilizing in Bismack, secret precautions were taken by federal officers to cope with any trouble that might develop. Slate Highway Commissioner Frank A. Vogel; R. A. Kinzer, former federal Relief Commission secretary; Oscar A. Chaput, business manager of The Leader, and Harold McDonald were convicted with the governor. Langer took office January 1. 1933 in the landslide which swept the Nonpartisan League into control of the state's government. He has been a political stormy petrel since, breaking soon wiwtli the league's executive committee. His policy for wholesale embargoes for the express benefit of fanners, debtors and small business men had brough him both commendation and condemnation. ..The investigation which resulted in the indictment of Langer .and eight others in Fargo last April was preceded a few weeks ago by the removal of the chief executive as head of the federal relief organization in the state. BERLIN, Germany—(ff*)— With the question of the foreign debt moratorium out of the way. there were indications Sunday that Germany intends to make a keen-edged economic weapon of her power to buy raw materials. Apparently the weapon is to be brought into play if other nations resort to retaliations because of the Reich'5 determination not to pay its foreign obligations for a while. Report'; that this will be the nut- icnV policy were heightened by statements that u ram materials commissioner would be nominate dsoon.

It was assumed he would consolidate and make even more effective the economic pressure which the Reich exerts through raw material purchases in thu world markets. Talk of the appointment of a raw materiaus commissioner also was regarded as new evidence that Germany is prepared to take decisive steps in any direction to keep firm control of her financial and economic lit'e. The importance of Germany's raw materials purchases is constantly being paraded in editorials and even the man on the street has become convinced that the world can not afford not to sell to Germany.

The business leaders, comprising the Industrial Advisory Board, which advices Recovery Administrator Hugh S.

The entire meeting lias been private, but George H. Mead, chairman of the board and president of the Mead Corporation, Dayton, O., outlined what happened to newspapermen. Four main ideas were generated in the discussion: 1. The continuance of some form of government interest in the organization of bu.sine.ss was assumed. 2.

Some of the contentment Amos Siddal had known in life seemed to cling to him In death, anil the harassed young man, keeping the death watch, felt It. A T 6 o'clock In the morning the • telephone rang again. Groggy with fatigue and the emotional storm he had endured, Bill staggered into the hall. A man's voice said, "Tbis Is Curt Kellogg, Bill. There's a telegram for you. Want I should read it or send It out?" "Read it to me." "It's dated today, five a. m., Chicago. It reads, 'Con David lied. May I come back and explain?

He would have liked to fling her out of the house but he could not do that. Sbe had lived In the Siddal home for five years and was supposed to be a close friend. He managed to avoid her and ignored the condolences she offered. Joe Hoskins, tbe lawyer, a lifelong acquaintance of Grandfather Siddal, rode to the cemetery In the car with Bill. Minnie aud Miaa Perkins sat behind. Little was said on the dismal trip, but on the way borne again the attorney asked, "Shall I come out to your place to read the will or will you come in to the office?" "It doesn't matter," Bill answered gloomily. "The property all goes to Madeline. You'll have to got In touch with her." Hoskins coughed, and adjusted his spectacles. "No," he said. "It doesn't. Your Grandfather didn't leave Madeline a cent." "What?" "The farm and everything else Is yours, Bill, unless—well, ha did leave a letter addressed to the two of you, but I have an Idea that hasn't anything to do with the property." "But I don't understand! I always thought—" "I reckon .'ae figured that, as you were man ind wife.
