TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZCTTE, DECEMBER 15 1936 to call a special session of the legislature immediately.." Former State Senator Garrett Roelofs of Sioux Center, chairman of the committee of 35 selected to draft proposed state social security legislation conforming with the federal act, also urged a special session on unemployment insurance. He returned from Washington, D. Ci, Monday night and reported that a committee of lowans learned at the capital there was little chance of congress changing the Dec. 31 requirement. '•With the majority of the states already conforming to the federal unemployment act provisions," he said, "it appeared there would be little disposition on the part of their representatives and senators to do anything for states that failed to make certain they received their share of taxes already collected." To Be Paid in Full. As the law stands, he explained, tax money paid in by states which have not passed compliance laws, will be paid in full to the general fund of the national treasury. Vacancies have occurred in the Iowa senate because of the death of L. T. Shangle o:J Oskaloosa, and the resignations of Irving Knudson of Ellsworth, C. £. Malone of Atlantic, Chris Reese of Marshalltown, John K. Valentine of Centerville and George A. Wilson of DCS TVIoines. While the constitution requires that all counties be represented, advocates -if a special session of unemployment insurance pointed out that the regular session of the legislature, which will convene . Jan. 11, could ratify the acts of the special session before a court attack could be completed against any special session measures on constitutional grounds. HEAPliTiCTSM ON ARCHBISHOP Press and Pulpit Aroused by His Chastisement of Edward. LONDON, (.4?)—Criticism from the pulpit and the press was heaped upon the Archbishop of Canterbury Tuesday for his verbal chastisement of former King Edward VIII. Indications were the matter would reach the floor of the house of commons Thursday. The latest repercussions of the abdication of Edward sprang up to embarrass an officialdom striving to smooth ':he p;;th for George VI. his successor. The archbishop, spiritual leader of the empire, in a broadcast Sunday sternly lectured the former ruler for his desire to marry Mrs. Wallis Warfield Simpson in violation of the "Christian principles of marriage." Scornfully the head of the Church of England placed part of the blame for the Icing's conduct at the feet of Edward's social friends ."whose standards and ways of Me are alien to all the best interests of his people." Strong Dissent Seen. Strong dissent with the venerable archbishop's statements came Tuesday from church circles and was reflected in editorial comment and letters from the public to newspapers. Josiah Clement Wedgwood, labor member of parliament, said he hoped to open the question to debate in the house of commons Thursday. The Bishop of Durham, Dr. H. H. Henson, addressing a clerical gathering, said: "I always have been trained to believe that the Church of England was an Episcopal church governed by the bishops reigning in their several dioceses. "Now I find that it is coming to be some kind of a novd body governed by the British Broadcasting corporation and two ?.-.-chbishops. (The reference was to the two ranking archbishops, Canterbury and York.) "I do not like it." Hit Man When Down. Letters to newspapers criticized the Canterbury radio sermon. One writer said, "his words, uttered at this moment, suggest the hittinr; of a man when he is down." Lord Beaverbrook's Daily Express commented editorially: "After the Archbishop of Canterbury comes Archdeacon Lambie of Australia, bravely firing the artillery of the church against a position already evacuated." (Archdeacon Lambie in a speech at Melbourne had said Edward appeared to lack "appreciation of the reality of God and responsibility to him.") Comment in the house of commons led to the belief not only the archbishop's remarks, but Edward's radio farewell to the nation Friday, would be raised in parliament. Two questions likely will be posed: With Cabinet Approval. 1. Whether the church head's broadcast was made with the cabinet's approval. 2. Whether any cabinet ministers read the speech bsfore it was delivered. The opportunity will arise during discussion of the British Broadcasting corporation's charter, which comes up for review Thursday. Some members of parliament also expected the question to arise whether Edward's farewell had received prior ministerial approval. There was P widespread impression none of the cabinet knew its contents beforehand, although others insisted Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin undoubtedly had examined it closely. "A hobby will keep you from going crazy," asserts a psj'ch-a- trfJt And as to those who have to listen to you talk'about your bnb- bv we sunpose it'rup to them to m«lnt»Jn ineir s»aUy a»;best they can.—Washington F«rt. NEW CONGRESS WILL "FOLLOW" Members Reveal Views on Most Issues Same as Roosevelt's. WASHINGTON, (/P)—The new congress bids fair to be as responsive to President Roosevelt's leadership as its two predecessors, on the basis of a cross section of sentiment Tuesday among the members. Except on the relief question, those who gave their views on several important issues in ic- sponse to a questionnaire from the Associated Press sided overwhelmingly with the white house positions. Asked whether they favored federal or state jurisdiction over relief, 50 members stood by the present setup, 49 wanted state control and 81 were non-committal. Answers Stack Up. Here is the way the answers stacked up, in percentages applying to congress as a whole: Surplus Tax Act Soclwl Security Act Reciprocal Tariff Act Wagner Labor Act .. Crop Insurance -.,... Farm Tenant Loans . Decentralized Relief 51.7 46.1 46.1 15 3.3 1.6 3.9 39.5 25 3GJ 41.1 52.3 50 30.55 24.45 45 Most of those who refrained from giving their views were elected as Roosevelt supporters. Hence the survey can be considered at least a barometer of the probabilities on the questions covered. The questions bearing on existing laws were among those discussed in detail between the parties in the presidential campaign. Significantly, some foremost democrats who stood out against republican assaults on the tax and other laws plan themselves to seek amendments. Taxation of Surpluses. The taxation of surpluses is unpopular with business, wrote one congressman, "but unless something bettev is devised, it must stand." The social security act has 129 friends, 6 opponents and 45 noncommittal among those who participated in the poll. Virtually all the favorable replies agreed with the president and the security board that the law is only an imperfect beginning. Some want it broadened to take in domestic and farm help for federal pension;;, others to hav; the employer bear the whole pension tax. The reciprocal tariff act, which the republican platform proposed to repeal, roused one westerner to comment, "it might be modified, but it certainly is promoting trade." Others advocated senate ratification of the treaties and various modifications. Comment Is Slight. Comment on the Wagner labor relations act was slight Among revisions suggested was one "to protect employer as well as em- ploye in collective bargaining." "If it costs money, I'm against it," wrote one of the few dissenters to crop insurance. An eastern senator declared for limited insurance without price level guarantees. The tendency on farm tenant loans was to advocate serious study before acting. Reports on both topics are being prepared for the president Opinions on relief ranged between wi'de. extremes. Some members evidently were counting on the federal government to carry the burden indefinitely. Others would return it to the states "right now." The general inclination was for a tapering off by Washington as recovery proceeds. 7 Forced to Flee in Nightclothing bv Muscatine Fire ^ MUSCATINE, (fl 5 )—Seven persons were forced to flee in night- clothing from a blazing home here early Tuesday when fire, originating from a furnace explosion, swept the lower rooms of a two story house owned by Mrs. A.

Fintel and daughter, Miss Catherine of Genesee, Wis., who slopped overnight to visit Mrs. Hurlbut while on their way to California, . were among those ousted by the' fire.

MADRID MAKES VICTORY CLAIM Says Rear Guard of Franco Army "Destroyed" by Flank Action. MADRID, (£>)—The rear guard of Gen. Francisco Franco's insurgent army besieging Madrid was reported by the government Tuesday to have been ''destroyed" by a flank action. In a thin, cold rain which soaked trenches around Madrid, the fascist troops attacked the .government position of Fresnedilla, 12 miles west of Madrid, with mortars, machine guns and heavy rifle fire. The insurgents were permitted almost to reach the socialist front line, the official report said, as the government troops held their fire. Then the socialist militia launched a driving counter-offensive aid, aided by a rolling artillery barrage, pushed back the attacking insurgents and struck their rear guard in the flank. Three miles to- the east of Fresnedilla a simultaneous fascist assault on ValdemoriUo, the government reported, was repulsed in fierce fighting that lasted throughout the morning.

McDonald said Tuesday that 25 year old Hope Morgan, before she hanged herself in a jail cell Tuesday morning, had scrawled a confession on pages of a magazine, that she killed her best friend because of "jealousy." The girl's statement, made as she awaited a sanity commission report that would determine whether she faced trial on first degree murder charges, was scratched with pencil and burned matches on the margins of 'magazines found in her cell. McDonald said the notes, some of them barely legible, told how Miss Morgan was "jealous and disappointed" because her friend, Elizabeth Giltner, 25, was about to be married, and'that she felt she would be "left out of the picture.' 1 Miss Giltner was shot to death as the two girls sat addressing wedding invitations in the Giltner home a week ago. A woman inmate of the jail noted her absence from her cell about 3:30 a. m. She summoned Mrs. Allan McDonald, wife of the sheriff and matron of the jail. Mrs. McDonald found the body suspended from a shower bath fixture in a room adjoining the women's quarters. Coroner Ray Gorsline said she probably had been dead an hour. Only Monday, Sheriff McDonald had taken a large nail file from Miss Morgan for fear she would atempt to take her life.

G. Ligutti, parish priest who "went direct to Mrs. Roosevelt to get our project started," saw "good Signs" for the future of the Granger homestead subsistence project after a day of thanksgiving which marked the end of the homesteader's first year on their land. "None of the 50 families has become discouraged," he said. "They have had good returns in spite of the drought. , "There have been some bad times. Most of them are miners and mining has been slow." The homesteaders gathered in the Church of the Assumption here to thank their God and their government for the. land. Later they ate fried chicken and mashed potatoes with Gov. Clyde L.
