TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 22 • 1936 also include . revision of the method of appeal from findings or' the commission's representatives, exempting all employers of fewer than eight persons, and changing the setup of a proposed advisory board. A democratic administration spokesman s;iid the changes might ::ot be seriously opposed by democrats on the floor. The senate cleared decks Senator Claude Stanley, would I Representative Dave Evans (R) of Crcsco, who asked that the committee spokesman go through the 56 page measure section by section. "We want to know just what it means from stem to stern," 1he member explained. While it appeared that action within the house would be considerably delayed, as in the senate, numerous amendments were in the process of preparation but the makers had not disclosed what changes they might ask. Protest From Wcniff. At the same time there rested on the desks of the members, a protest from Frank E. Wenig, state labor commissioner, which he had previously wired to Frances Perkins, secretary of labor, opposing transfer of the state employment service under the provisions of the act from his jurisdiction to to the state unemployment coin- mission the bill creates. The commission, under the terms of the act, provides for five commissioners. Wenig would be one and the rest of the board immediately after convening and started debate on the bill, taking it up section by section with the provision agreed upon that members could offer amendments from the floor without going through the formality of filing them with the clerk. Aided by Schneider. In the house. McCarthy was assisted m his explanation by Louis Schneider. De> Moines attorney who worked Yv'ith the suicojiirnit- tce which drafted the proposed measure. In a committee uf the whole session with Speaker Mitchel. 1 presiding, Shneider traced developments in social security legislation and emphasized ''unemployment insurance i.= em,rely different from any othei '•'" m of social security legislation." Furthermore, he told the Aouse it is "incumbent upon the various states to set up the machinery for local operation." Mounts to Chair. Displaying marked interes' in Shneider's informal explanation, house members, unable to hear him, crowded closely to the chief clerk's sU'.id where the di.ninu- ti'.'e attorney mounted a chair that he might be better heard. would consist of and two workers. two employers The labor secretary's reply advised Wenig the department desires consolidation of the unemployment service and the unemployment compensation work with state labor departments, but that states are free to select their own types of administration. Turn Guns on Bill. Several republican representatives turned their guns on the bill before Shneider and McCarthy got well into their explanation of its provisions. C.

V-4MB1W subcommittee which drafted the measure decided to exempt em- ployes from contributing to "their own protection." McCarthy explained, -as he did several times later, that he was not prepared to say "why the committee decided to formulate the bill as. it did." Smith then swung on Shneider with the same question, and Shneider replied that he thought the reason was because employes already make old age assistance contributions. Asks About Labor. A, H. Avery of Spencer wanted to know whether organized labor had not induced the committee to exempt employes' from payment of "their share." Assured by Shneider that the committee was not influenced by organized labor, Avery told the house he proposed "to discuss the fact that if the bill had required employes to contribute, it would be so unpopular it never would pass." At Speaker John Mitchell's suggestion, McCarthy started reading the bill section by section, but he only completed section 2, which explained the purpose of the act. when B. B. Hickenlooper of Cedar Rapids i-ose to declare the section was "a sophomore's oration." He inquired whether "a lot of words couldn't be cut out of it." House Delays Action. The house Monday delayed action on the bill while it awaited a report of its credentials committee on seating six men appointed to fill vacancies by Governor Herring. The committee reported against seating the new members and ihe house concurred in the report by a vote of 90 to 6. The senate had previously seated the four members appointed to fill vacancies in that body. The house by its action decided that their seating in the special session would endanger the constitutionality of the bill the legislature was convened to pass. CHIANG'S WIFE GOES TO SIDE Believed Bound for Final Effort to Gam Captive Leader's Freedom. NANKING, (JP)— The American educated wife of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek flew to her husband's prison Tuesday, despite the urgent protests of high officials, for what was possibly a final effort to procure the captive leader's freedom. The conviction was growing that no end to Marshal Chang Hsueh - Liang's rebellion to force MME. CHIANG war against Jap- ad was in sight The executive Yuan (council), believed to be despairing of a quick solution of the crisis, abolished the local government ot Shensi province indicating it would be pacified as a conquered territory when the civil war is ver. All provincial ' affairs were brought directly under the Hanking government and the local chiefs branded have forfeited Judge Ring to Rule Soon on Motion for Iwers Will Retrial TIPTON, (&)— District Judge H. C. Ring said Tuesday that he would rule "in a few days" on the motion for a new trial in the Henry Iwers will contest case. Attorneys representing 17 relatives seeking shares of the $350,000 Iwers fortune, argued that ev> idence introduced at the first trial should not have been admitted by the court. Arguments centered on the admission of a memorandum of the late D. H. Snoke, Davenport attorney who wrote the contested Iwers will. as ''rebels who all administrative rights." Long: Drawn Fight. I Adding to the feeling that China was faced with a long drawn fight for the release of the generalissimo was the fact that Mme. Chiang and her brother. Dr. T. V. Soong, who accompanied her on the .dramatic journey, took huge quantities of luggage, indicating their immediate return to Nan- king was unlikely. Until the last moment before their departure, important person* ages attempted to dissuade them | from making the trip. It was feared their presence at Sianfu, capital of the revolting province, would weaken the strong resistance the central government had made to Chang's demands. Situation Under Control. Little fear was felt for their safety since the rebellious young marshal seemed to have control of the situation there and had treated Chiang with every respect during the 14 tiays he had been held prisoner. Extravagant rumors of a huge ransom demanded by Chang to release the generalissimo .circulated through the capital but were emphatically denied. Some of the reports set the sums at from SIO.000,000 to $15.000.000. Government officials insisted, however, the situation was not one 5 SOUTH FEDERAL AVE. PHONE 89 SHIFT AIRPLANE HUNT TO SOUTH I Army Reserve Flyers Take i Over Air Patrols at Salt Lake City. SALT LAKE CITY, (<Pi—Search for a missing Western Air Express plane and its seven occupants, which vanished a week ago Tuesday, was shifted far to the south by private and commercial ships as army reserve flyers took over aerial patrols here. Meanwhile, at Spokane, Wash., Northwest Airlines officials anxiously waited word from a ground crew sent late Monday to the scat- t'ered wreckage of a St. Paul-Seattle airliner on fire blackened Cemetery ridge in north Idaho's wooded wilderness. No hope was held that Pilots Joe Livermore and Arthur M. Haid were alive. Reserve Lieutenants Envin McWilliams and Byron Van Cott were assigned to a month's active duty at the Salt Lake City airport Tuesday when Allan Barric, Western Air's vice president, said his men were "closing down the Salt Lake end of the hunt." Since the big transport disappeared on a night flight from Los Angeles, Barrie said aeriai searchers had exhausted every clew. j Small and Heavily Insured Package Addressed to Duke of Windsor.

Interest of Cerro Gordo county Farm Bureau members in farm tenancy legislation which will be considered at the next session of congress was demonstrated Monday afternoon at the annual bureau meeting in the Y.

The portrait cf the baroness, however, will be no surprise as Windsor asked that it be taken especially for him. Christmas on a baronial scale was already in full swing at the chateau. Huge loads of flowers, laurel, mistletoe and evergreen trees have arrived. The great hall of the chateau was lavish with the decorations, many of which Edward, poised en a stepladder, helped the baroness put up. Windsor finished unpacking the carload of luggage that arrived for him on Monday. The first item he delved for was a battered grey fedora hat and the second was a quantity of English whisky, Bowling Not Best. Meanwhile his extensive training for the Baron Eugene de Rothschild's annual Christmas bowling competition was not going so well. His secretary beat him 110 to 90 and then the pinboy gave both a lesson after which the lad vouchsafed: ' "The king shows great promise." To Enzesfelders Edward still is "king" rather than "Duke of Windsor." Representative Biermann, who is a member of the agriculture committee for the house, said proposals will be made for loans on the purchase of good farms, with supervision for a period of , five years to make certain that the buyer uses businesslike methods. He said that #s much as 100 per cent loans might be made on these purchases. Preceding Mr. Biermann's address, R. M. Hall, Lincoln township, was elected president of the county organization for 1937. Bureau members who heard his address were invited by Representative Biermann to express their opinions on the farm tenancy subject and a large number responded. Evils in Farm Tenancy. It was believed by Mr. Biermann that many who would li to own farms would make good farm owners. He said that many others would not make good farmers, for a good farmer has to be a machinist, a veterinarian, a stock raiser, a raiser of crops and a good businessman. "It is pretty generally believed," Representative Biermann declared, "that there are evils in farm tenancy. In 1935 in the United States 42 per cent of all farms were operated by tenants and another 10 per cent of farm land was rented out. In 1935 in Iowa, which has the highest farm tenancy, aside from the south, 50 per cent of the land was operated by tenants." Increase Is Shown. Representative Biermann cited figures to show how farm tenancy had increased, including the fact that 10 per cent of the farm land in Iowa is owned,by corporations. The large part of the land rental is for less than two years, and the short time leases are destructive to the fertility of the soil, he continued. As optimistic factors in the farm tenancy situation, Reoresentative Biermann pointed out that 32.1 per cent of the farm tenants in lov/a are related to the owners and that the tenants as a class are younger than the owners. Representative Biermann pointed out that in England the tenant who improves the farm land is rewarded for this work if he moves off. But then, the tenants rarely move off the land, and in some cases descendants of the same family have tenanted the land for 300 years. He told how Denmark, where tenants are very few, bought large estates, dividing it into small estates which it sold to citizens. These citizens never pay the principal but always, as owners, pay for the use of the land somewhat as taxes, this varying according to prices of farm products. Good Land Essential. These examples oi how the question is handled in Europe were introduced by Representative Biermann to give various angles to the problem. He told how he homesteaded land in southern North Dakota. He has returned there several times, he said, and after 30 years finds his old neighbors financially broken; not because they were not good farmers | but .because the land was not good j enough to support them. i In the discussion Representative Biermann said he favored interest rates from the federal land bank at a cost that the loans were to the federal land bank. He said the bonds bear 3 per ce.nt and its costs 1 per cent for administration. During the present emergency, however, he voted for lower rates. He expressed the id-?a that 1 % per cent money is just a rainbow, adding that oh such a rate a farmer never could hope to retire from farming. A motion was carried for tne appointment of a committee of three to furnish Representative Biermann with iriormation relative to farm tenancy in Cerro Gordo county. Resolutions Prepared. The resolutions prepared by a committee made up of R. A. Hoi- man, Fred Stover and R. M. Hall, recommended that the Farm Bureau "take an active part in promoting a better relationship between landlord and tenant, as a practical application of the soil and human conservation program. To foster operator ownership and do whatever necessary to prevent a land boom or undue speculation." We believe the Farm Bureau set up to be 'Che best yet devised for securing a consensus of farm opinion," the resolutions stated further. "That thereby it has gained prsstige that will hold as long-as the watchword is educational and co-ordinating service devoid of domination. Our Cerro Gordo county Federation of Farm Organizations is an example of such service. Each co-operative must control its own affairs. But as 'a member of the federation, works in harmony to promote all lines of co-operation. "We herewith express to Henry Wallace, secretary of agriculture, our deep appreciation for his stand, that farmers shall retain the power of initiative and administration of their own program. "We are proud of the record of our 4-H club in all its past achievements. We also appreciate the unremitting efforts of the adult leaders in this work. Urge Co-Operation. "We urge all authorities and organizations to co-operate in promoting rural electrification. We beJieve in making loans preference should be given to co-operatively or publicly owned districts and that service be impartially administered. "We deplore the rapid growth of corporate pow,er and the toll it is taking of Iowa savings to build up industrial centers elsewhere. As one means of stopping this trend, we suggest that the Farm Bureau givf, thorough consideration to the co-operative credit movement as sponsored by the -National Cooperative Credit Bureau that Iowa wealth may be held within the state for her own • industries and to further home ownership. ' We commend County Agent Marion E. Olson for the progressive spirit he has shown in taking a .post graduate course at University of Chicago, to better fit himself to carry forward our educational program. For 4-H Activities. "We recommend to the directors of the North Iowa fair that the ,major part of future improvement be made along lines which would promote 4-H and similar educational activities. To that end we offer our co-operation in helping to outline a future program." Additions to the resolutions were made in the form of motions to investigate the possibilities of obtaining lime through the Works Progress administration at cost price lor Farm Bureau members in this county, and to determine the reasons for the varying price obtained by certain truckers for hogs on any one day at the Decker packing plant.
