LONDON, (ffl) — George VI, Britain's new lung, pledged to his parliament Monday "my constant | endeavor, with God's help and supported by ray dear wife, to uphold the honor of the realm and Duke of Windsor, sought relaxation in the guarded grounds of an Austrian castle and, as a private consult a an old ear citizen, arranged to Vienna specialist for affliction. "Personal Distress." Into the new king's promise he injected the phrase "at a moment of great personal distress." It was George VI's forty-first- birthday, but in the grave aftermath of empire crisis created by his brother's love for a twice married American he waived all anniversary ceremony. His action was in, keeping with a call from the Archbishop of Canterbury for a nation consecrated _ _. i _. __. _ pit I''-*- W Wi T A.U1 a 1IC4.HW1 J ^Wllt? granted.

It was transmitted to Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin for delivery to the house of commons, where members continued their individual oaths of allegiance to the king. Refuse to Take Oath. William Gallacher, communist niember of the house of commons, and several others refused to take the .oath of allegiance to the new king. The dissenters substituted an "affirmation of good faith" but declined to swear the regular oath on a Bible. Parliamentary circles considered the substitution a pledge which bound the dissenting members as strongly as the traditional oath. On| the dais before the peers, symbolic of the new regime, were two thrones. WO little girls wrote notes to the Christmas Cheer Fund. And these two notes so clearly exemplify the mission H!and the mechanics of this venture in the Yule spirit that we are going to reproduce them. First the one from M. J. P.: "I am sending one dollar for Santa Claus to use to help the needy. Some children need things very badly. My offer may not be very much, I hope it is used the way I want it used, by that I mean toys." Then there in the same mail was this from V, T.: "I am writing this in hope that my little sister rmd I will get something for Chrisimas. Mothei is not working now and 1 are afraid that it will be a poor Christmas for us. My little sister is 9 years old and I am H years old, so please tell old Santa not to for- g e t where w e live." See how it works? The dollar which M. J. P. sends is available for the things V. T. and her sister need, subject, of course, to the scrutiny which Mrs. Mabel Blaise, secretary of the Social Welfare League and director of the investment of this Cheer fund, is able to provide. One of the fitst donors to this annual fund when it was started eleven years ago was the Hanford Ladies Aid. are on the Again its members list of North Iowa Good. Fellows. The total raised thus far is almost $700 short of the 51,000 goal. It is hoped that this total will be boosted to at least $600 by the end of this week. This will leave $400 for the final lour .day sprint. Giving by office and factory groups is usually delayed until these final days. In the past this source of revenue has been responsible for sending the fund to its goal. History quite likely will repeat itself this year. Gifts, large or small, should be brought to the Globe-Gazette office or mailed to this address: Christmas Cheer Fund, Globe-Gazette Mason City, low*. ' FOUR MEN DEAD AS TWO INJURED HOLD THEIR OWN Inquest Planned Tuesday While Great Western Officials Seek Cause of Headon Crash of Freight and Passenger. » NEW HAMPTON—Railway officials Monday attempted 1a determine the cause of a Great Western passenger and freight train collision at Boyd, 4>/2 miles-southeast of New Hampton, which resulted early Sunday in the death of four trainmen. Two other trainmen who were injured in the greatest rail tragedy of Chickasaw county were reported Monday to have spent a restful night and are holding their own in the hospital at New Hampton. This disaster brought the violent deaths the past week in Iowa up to a total of 34 in fires, train wrecks, automobile mishaps, suicides and other accidents. While the railway investigation was in progress, Coroner Wil-liam Laikin said an inquest will be held Tuesday. He stated the accident may have been caused, in part, by a heavy fog. Witness Describes Crash. One witness, Harry Worm, a farmer, reported the freight train pulled up to the station and started backing up when a passenger train loomed out of the fog and crashed into it. Trainmen killed in the wreck were Charles Messenger, 67, passenger train engineer; Ole Engelbretson, 59, freight train engineer; Herman G. Ottinger, 55, freight train head brakeman, and Richard Knutson, 51, freight train fireman, all of St. Paul. _____ * Charles Thein, 57, St. Paul, passenger train fireman, suffered critical injuries. Two other trainmen and Miss Ruth Johnson of Hammond, Wis., hotel operator, a passenger, were injured. The trainmen jumped from the engine cab just before the crash. .Traffic Is Resumed. At division offices of the Great Western in St. Paul it was stated a group of train officials from Chicago came to Oelwein tc direct the investigation. The division superintendent's office said the offi- SPANISH REBELS ARE HELD BACK Batter for Two Hours at Government Lines but Fail to Advance. MADRID, (#)—Fleets of in_ I trials would co-operate with the tered for two hours Monday at government lines in University City, but shivering defenders held firm. An icy wind howled down from the Guadarrama mountains as the fighting' broke out anexv. Defenders, however, said the long awaited insurgent "big push" had not materialized. It was announced 60,000 noncombatant men. women and children had been evacuated from the besieged capital in the past week. Of these, 30,000 were children. The socialist defense junta ordered complete reorganization of ts militia forces in preparation for a bitter winter siege. While insurgent batteries threw occasional shells into the city, the defense forces were converted into 'perfect" army units, the government said. Faced with the probability the n s u r g e n t siege would last throughout the winter cold, the government planned the reorganization to obtain strict discipline among the militia units.

Traffic on the road's main line was tied up until late Sunday afternoon. Trainmen said the two trains had orders to'pass at Fredericksburg, six miles southeast of Boyd. They said the orders included the warning: "Use caution. Heavy fog." . Passenger Cars Not Derailed. The passenger train carried two score persons in its day coach, Pullman, and combined Pullman and club car. None of the passenger train cars was derailed. The two engines rolled over in a ditch, a twisted .mass of wreckage. Track was ripped up where the two locomotives collided. Railroad officiuls refused to state the cause of the accident but it was learned that the passenger train due in New Hampton at 4:40 o'clock had train orders to meet freight trains No. 73 and second No. 26 at Frederidisburg, The passenger train received its order at Sumner and the freight trains at New Hampton. The train orders found in the pockets of the dead engineers are being held by Chickasaw county officers. Miss Johnson said that .~he vas "just dozing off" when th;. crash occurred. Were Screaming;. Crying:. "It was terrible." she said. "There was a jolt and I WHS thrown forward over the scat in front. Women and children in the car started screaming. When things quieted down they were all crying." "We were just sitting there riding along and then all of a sudden we were piled up in a mess. Women and children were screaming and crying and I was crying myself. It also seemed as if there was a second jolt." Dr. W. E. Rochford. of Minneapolis, a passenger, said he did not know at first what had happened. "All I knew," he said, "was that I had been awakened very suddenly and that people were screaming around me. I went forward from the car I had been sleeping in. In the day coach there ' were several women and children, and while-they cried a good deal and there was some confusion, the orderliness of the crowd was really remarkable. Started to Improve. , "Someone carried in a fireman (Thein) who had been hurt badly in the wreck. At first we could barely feel his pulse, but about 10 minutei after we wrapped Wm in • blank-ets and took emergency measures he started to improve. Thein had leaped just before the wreck. The physician was one of a party of doctors returning to Minnesota from the western surgical conference in Kansas City. After the crash, passengers huddled together "in the coach and Pullman car in near zero temperatures. Within an hour and
