SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 17 1936 FOREIGN HELP MADRID'S NEED Recognition of Franco by Italy, Germany Blow to Loyalists. HENDAYE, France, (#)—Uncensored reports from wartorn Madrid quoted reliable sources Thursday as having said the Madrid government is convinced that only with definite foreign aid can it defeat the Spanish fascists. Recognition of Gen. Francisco Franco's insurgent regime by Italy and Germany struck a death blow at the Madrid cause, its leaders felt, just at a time when the city's unexpected defenses seemed to be turning the tide of battle in its favor. Most of the informed leaders in Madrid, the uncensored reports said, feel that Russia, acting alone, cannot carry the role of Madrid's savior any longer. France Is Worry. The wariness of France in not becoming involved is one of the major disappointments to the workers class which, from the beginning of the war, believed it could depend upon the French proletariat for aid. While anxious over the adverse international situation, the government of Premier Francisco Largo Caballero is increasingly concerned over the menace of a syndicalist-socialist explosion which has been avoided thus far only through exercise of the greatest tact with frequent concession to the syndicalists. , It is a well known fact in Madrid, the reports declared, that the government, despite its claim of firm control in the situation, is powerless to dominate the anarchist elements within the national workers federation. F. A. I. Ignores Laws. j The F. A. I. (Federation of j Iberian Anarchists) ignores government made laws, decrees and ordinances, and has evidenced no Air Photo Reveals Land Ownership An air photo made for the agricultural conservation committee in Jones county has revealed that a farmer in Washington township of that county apparently has a ten-acre corn field on another man's land. The discovery was made by an assessor. At the right is a drawing of section 25 as it appears in the plat map. At the left is the air photo of the same section with outlines of farms added. Note actual course of the river, as revealed by the air photo, compared with the supposed course on the plat map. Frank Edwards is now owner of the farm labeled Jos. B.oeers. According to the assessor, Edwards this year had a corn field in the bend of the river which apparently was on land belong- In? to the Frank Curran estate. The Jones county committee has concluded that the plate map of the river course is in error at least 100 rods.

PENNEY CO. respect for military men at the head of the government forces. Despite the government's orders that prisoners of war must be respected and suspected rightists must be arrested only by official police, there have been few attempts to interfere with the anarchists' ideas of sterner treatment, the reports said. Political prisoners are shot at the rate of 25 a day in Madrid, the reports declared, from 50 to 75 daily in Valencia and from 30 to 50 a day in Barcelona. No War Prisoners. Foreigners lock iri vain for the concentration camps ior prisoners of war. One foreigner was told bluntly by an anarchist leader: "Take prisoners when food is so EXPECT MANY AT 4-H COURSE North lowans Candidates for Posts at Ames Convention.

A military commander told another foreigner: •'I can do nothing with the anarchist militia. They fight when and where they please—if thc-y please. They don't know what discipline is. If I should attempt to enforce orders I would suffer the same fate as others in my predicament—I would be shot."

Passengers were shaken up but none was reported seriously injured. Parents Are Urged to Provide Greater Freedom to Children CHICAGO, (UP)—To the perturbed parent of a "problem" child Dr. Alwin C. Rambar, Northwestern university pediatrics professor, offers advice. His suggestions take a negative turn and some upset traditional child-rearing rules. Here are a few: Don't be dogmatic in making the child eat something because "it's good for him." Let him exercise his own desires:. Don't be alarmed at "temperamental" outbursts. Indifference is the best cure. Leave the room. Don't assume the child should "be seen and not heard." Let him enter into adults' conversation. Don't be inconsistent, allowing a child to do a certain thing one time, refusing it the next. Inconsistency brings confusion and disobedience. Dr. Rambar summarizes his code with the explanation htat each child is an individual and must be permitted to develop his own possibilities; not subjected to a general, adult, standard of development.

"Diamond City." a jet black Aberdeen Angus, is the champion. While his master, Cleo Yoder, 18; stayed at home at Wellman, the steer triumphed over the choicest cattle of 24 states. First prize money was $125. In addition, show officials estimated the 1,000 pound steer would be auctioned Saturday for $3 a pound or more. He was exhibited by Sam Fullerton, who played good samari- tan for young Yoder, a 4-H club exhibitor, by bringing the steer cut in his own load of cattle. Royal Mounted Not Successful; Missing Man Believed Dead WICHITA, Kans., (UP)—Martin Hein, who left an Andale, Kans., farm for a "short walk" 21 years ago and disappeared, has been declared legally dead after a futile search in which the Royal Canadian Mounted Police participated. Judge Grover Pierpont said under Kansas law it was possible to declare persons legally dead when no trace had been found of them in seven years. Jat Warnick of Wichita, attorney for Hein's seven children, said Hcin left two profitable farms and considerable Andale city property. Several years passed without word from Hein following his disappearance in 1915. Then relatives heard he was in Canada. They enlisted the aid of the Royal Mounted, but that organization failed to produce any trace of him. Search in the United States also was ineffectual. Anna Hein, wife of the missing man, died more than a year ago. The declaration that Hein was legally dead permitted each of his children to claim one-seventh of the estate.

Vacation to Start Friday; Classes to Be Reopened Jan. 4 J CEDAR FALLS — More than 1,800 college students at the Iowa State Teachers college are this week thinking, if not singing, "Joy to the world." Friday they leave for home and two weeks of Christmas vacation. This year they will not return -antil Jan. 4, actually 16 days later. With 15 weeks of school work behind the^ since the opening of the fall term, students look upon the two weeks' vacation as a relief and a rest, not as a chance to. get away from school. Most of them intend to loaf in the- surroundings of home. Books and ice skating are also on the schedule. Administrative offices at the Teachers college will remain open until Christmas day. They will also be open the week following Christmas. Otherwise, all of Teachers college, including a few of the business houses on College ' hill, will take 'a rest from Dec. 18 until Jan. 4.
