TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 19 • 1936 some measure of prestige for the central government. Demanded Reorganization. When Chang seized his superior in r. ,-uddcn coup d'etat at Si- anfu, capital of Shensi province, just a week ago he demanded reorganization of the government to include communist elements and immediate war against Japanese aggression. It was thought that Chiang, on his release, would go at once 10 Lsyang, Kenan Province, headquarters oi the punitive expedition, rather than to Nanking. The Nanking government learned that General Chiang had been supplied with comfortable quarters i;i a private residence since his capture and had been given every courtesy save freedom of movement. Authoritative details of the dramatic coup that brought about the gravest crisis in the history of the Chinese nationalist movement have just reached Nanking. Staying: at Lintunfr. The generalissimo had been staying at Lintung. a watering resort a few miles east of Sianfu, for some days before the historic Dec. 12. Only his staff and a small bodyguard were wi;h him at Litung while an almost equally small body, comprising the rest of. his j guard, remained at Sianfu. | Shortly before dawn on Dec. 12. | sounds of shooting in the army i barracks and nearby streets awakened Sianfu. | Chosen troops of Marshall Chang's army overpowered Chiang's followers in a sharp, brief attack. A strong detachment of The rebellious young marshal's soldiers hastened 10 the watering place, disarmed the ineager bodyguard snd brought the generalissimo and his brief staff back to Sianfu. province to Gen. Chiang Ting- Wen. It was this imminent change that \vas thought to have forced the former Manchurian war lord's hand. The Domei (Japanese) agency reported in a dispatch from Peip- ing that Chiang had refused to open hostilities on Japan and for the reason Chang acted. Quote Chans Telegram. Domei quoted a telegram Chang sent to General Yen at Taiyuanfu: "I proposed to the generalissimo he rectify past errors and send troops northward against Japan. As I was unable to obtain his consent thereto 1 was obliged to detain him at Sianfu to enable him to make up his mind. "In taking. this action I was motivated only by a desire to serve the country. "I further proposed the cessation of hostilities against fellow countrymen and reorganization of the national government in cooperation with communists and in alliance with Russia." The Domei report said Marshal Chang and his chief lieutenant, Gen. Yang Chu-Cheng, aUegedly had announced the formation of an independent regime at Sianfu called "the northwest military affairs commission." Local Churches THE GOLDEN TEXT: Luke 2: 14—"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men in whom he is well pleased." Few Soldiers Killed. Only a few soldiers were killed in the execution of the plot which was completed before daybreak. Quiet quickly was restored in Sianfu and the life of the city \vcnt peacei'ully on. The generalissimo was understood to have been at Sianfu personally to supervise the transfer of Mnrshal Chang's duties iis pacification corr.missioner for Shcnsi For Christmas 7 REQUIREMENTS OF LAW STATED Social Security Board at Washington Gives Iowa Bill Needs.

(#>} — Federal social security boaro! officials Saturday outlined seven requirements an Iowa unemployment insurance act must meet to receive their approval and obtain for the state a claim of an estimated S3.000,000 in tax collections. The requirements, as outlined by the officials, were: 1. Methods of administration I that the board finds "reasonably j calculated to insure full payment I of unemployment compensation j when due." I 2. Payment of compensation I solely through public employment I offices or such othe.- agencies as i the board may approve. ! 3. An opportunity for a fair 1 hearing for all those whose claims : for compensation arc denied. I Payment to Treasury. \ 4. Immediate payment to the • federal treasury of all money re-,. I ccived in the unemployment fund • of the state. | -5. Expenditure of all money re- i Quisitioned by the state from the i federal fund in the payment of i unemployment compensation exclusive of administration expenses. 6. Making reports such as the board may require. 7. Making- available, upon request, to any federal work relief agency the name, address and employment status of each person receiving unemployment insurance. A compilation of information by the board said these were the only requirements the special session of the Iowa legislature must write into its unemployment insurance i aA to obtain federal approval. The i legislature itself, the board said j mav determine other provisions. Matters of Policy. i Matters of policy left to the j states include the amount of cov- i erage to be provided and whether j pooled funds or individual em- I plover accounts will be set up. ] Under the reserve account plan, I the state credits each employer's ! contributions to a separate account and benefits are paid from this account to his former em- ployes only. I Under the pooled fund plan, all I contributions are pooled into a single undivided fund from whjch benefits are paid to. eligible em- ployes, irrespective of their former employes. The state plan also may provide merit ratings of employers or industries contributing to. a pooled plan. The Iowa legislature may decide the rate of benefits, maxi! mum duration and ratio of weeks of benefit to weeks of cmploy- I ment. I Gratified With Decision. Apparently gratified w'th Iowa's decision to push a state unemployment insurance 1 a w through ?. special legislative session, the sociai security board offered the state its co-operation while keeping a "hands off" policy as to the actual legislation. The board explained its assistance would embrace the offer of drafts of approved bills and "any legal advice" Iowa officials might seek. Approval of an Iowa act before Jan. 1 would make the state eligible to receive 90 per cent of the taxation that employers have paid under the social security act since the first of last January.

Kraschel Saturday said he would have no objection if the special .session of the legislature considered an act to repeal the $2 old age pension head tax. Kraschel's statement followed reports current here that a measure would be introduced to wipe the head tax off the books before Jan, 1 so that lowans would not be required to pay the $2 levy in 1937. When questioned old age pension officials explained that the tax is due Jan.'l and that any action taken by the legislature in regular session next month could not remove the levy from the statutes until 1938. TWO STORIES ON HfOLZ'S SLAYING I Convict Says Thompson Framed While Paiiner Says Not. DES MOINES, (JP)— Two conflicting stories, one of which might save Tony Thompson, former St. Louis, Mo., factory worker from death on the gallows, were reported to Gov. Clyde L. Herring Saturday. It was up to the governor whether to accept the murder "confession" of Eddie Tallent, life torm prisoner, as genuine, ov believe Paul Hake who said "F.ddie is just telling this new story to try and save Tony." Tallent, a prisoner at Fort Madison, said that it was he and Hake who killed Martin Wolz, Louisa county farmer, in a torture robbery three years ago. Tallent said "we framed Tony because he caught us stealing soap and shoe polish from the factory and discharged us." At the Anamosa reformatory where he is serving a life sentence for his part in the murder, Hake denied Tallent's story. He told Warden W. H. Frazer: "Before I was transferred here from the penitentiary at Fort Madison I used to see Eddie now and then in the prison yard. He came to me once there and asked me to change my story but I wouldn't do it. I'd do anything to help Tony, but I won't change what 1 testified at his trial because I told the'truth." Governor Herring said he would investigate Tallent's confession before setting a date for Thompson's execution or considering possible clemency.

A pageant entitled "A Christmas Story," written and directed by Mrs. D. L. Kratz. will be presented at a Vesper service at 4 p. m. Sunday afternoon at the Church of Christ. The pageant is sponsored by the Bible school whose superintendent is W. S.. Kollman. A feature on the program will be the white gift service in which each member of the audience brings forward and lays before the Christ child a white wrapped gift. Money donations will be used for church supported orphanages. Food and clothing will also be brought for distribution in homes of needy families in Mason City.j The theme c-f the family deals with the confusion in the Any- man home as the rush of preparing for Christmas and the worry about gifts leaves little of the true spirit of Christ in the hearts of those preparing to observe the Christmas holiday. Father Any- man calls a halt for a brief reference to the backgrounds from which Christmas originated. The familiar scenes are presented of the shepherds and angels, the wise men and finally the manger scene and the holy family. Christmas carols accompanying the scenes are sung by the church choir directed by Mrs. J. J. Fitzgerald. The cast of the pageant is as follows: Mr. A n y m a n, Ivan Barnes: Mrs. Anyman, Mrs. James Odle: John Anyman, Raleigh Birch, Jr.: Susan Anyman, Marlys Brown: Mary, the mother of Jesus, Dorothy O'Hearn; Joseph, Stanley Haynes, Jr.; shepherds, Robert Ditzler, John Robertson, Roger Pedelty, Wayne Hicks; the wise men.
