TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 7 • 1937 carriages and then the stately "glass coach" of Queen Wilhelmina. . With the proud queen was some* one just as happy—the Princess Armgard of Lippe-Biersterfeld, Bernhard's mother. The sun, bursting through cold clouds, leaped and danced from a thousand facets of the royal coach. Flags snapped in a winter gale and, 33 the procession neared the great townhal!, billowed as if in salute. Down shouting lanes of close- packed people the coaches rolled, lackeys in knee breaches beside the creaking doors. The sun glinted on the polished medals and buckles oi ten thousand soldiers, lining the iuute. Forbid Throwing Flowers. Police, struggling against the lines of surging Hollanders, forbade the throwing of flowers. Cavalry and the mounted police escorts were first to reach the townhall, the white plumes of high browii shakoes streaming in the wind. Then came Juliana and Bernhard, to be followed by groomsmen, bridesmaids, mothers and a host of royal relatives and high personages. Because the burgomaster is not well, the ceremony in the town- hall was begui: by his deputy, Professor Vanderbilt. Sitting before a scarlet draped table, the burgomaster. Dr. S. G. R. De Monchy, then asked Bernard: Prince's Voice Strong. "Do you confess your willingness to :ake Juliana as your legal wife, to support and help her wherever she goes'.'" "Yes," replied the (ir.nce, in a strong voice. . The burgomaster placed then- right hands together and continued: "Then, after the Dutch law, I declare you to be married, and I am now entitled to fiddress you as your royal highnesses." As he ?aid this he struck a blow with a hammer, in the Dutch tradition. Just before the actual rites, Dr. De Money had asked Queen Wil- hclmina if she approved. She nodded primly. With the nexvlyweds seated, he launched into a speech detailing the difficulties of married life and expounding on the heavy task that lies before the couple. Juliana Almost Trips. Over at the church, while everyone waited for the ceremony to begin, Juliana almost tripped over a cushion placed in front of her armchair. But Bernhard, patently ill at ease, guided her safely to the seat and then perched himself'-on the edge of a chair beside her. Four children' held her flowing train. She was smiling happily beneath her tulle veil, dotted with silver roses. The German minister (there was friction between the Dutch and the nazis prior to the ceremony) was the last to reach the church. He took a second row seat. Pass Around Candy. The wait was a long one and England's royal envoy, the Duke of Kent, wriggled restively. One Thoughtful minister passed around a box of chocolates. With Dutch 'thoroughness, copies of the wedding program had been placed in the two huge armchairs reserved for the royal couple. \t last came the ceremci.y and the words of Dr. Obbink: "The grace of God will be your share: you are borne by the^ love and prayers of our people." The gray and black uniforms of German nobility: the admiral's garb of the Duke of Kent; the gold and braid of the diplomatic corps and the tailcoats and white ties of civil personages formed the background for the Groot kerk scene; the stolid walls of the "first class marriage chamber" looked down on the civil ceremony. Informal Reception. With the final boom of the organ, the congratulations began in a steady stream. There was an informal reception at the sacristy and then cries of ''good luck" trailed princess and consort a; they drove back through the city, nvcr a winding route four miles long. . Back ai the palace, the gigglm? Juliana and her husband plotted a secret exit from the grounds and kept a deep, dark and happy secret the hour they will start on their honeymoon in the Tyrol. There they first met—in a snowbank. Parks Projects to Begin. DES MOINES, (#)—City officials said works progress administration park improvement projects totaling 5193,000 would start here soon. The projects will employ an average of 425 men. AUNT HET By Robert Quillen "Henry is past fifty, and he's been a bachelor too long to enjoy bein' married. His wife is sure to make him start takin' baths." KGLO TESTING BEGINS JAN, 15, Local Radio Station Will Have Broadcast Test Week From Friday. Testing for Station KGLO, which has its studios in the Hotel Hanford, will begin at 1 o'clock Friday morning, Jan. 15, it was announced Thursday by F. C. Eighmey, manager of the station. The station is ready to begin its frequency test program but cannot take the air before the morning of Jan. 15, because activity of the local station during the early morning hours of the current week would interfere with the monitoring schedule of the federal communications commission. LAUNCH DRIVE ON DRUG USERS Peiping Police Raid Dens of Addicts; 100 Prisoners Reported Seized. PEIPING, (VP) — China's long heralded campaign against narcotic addicts and dealers was launched Thursday night with police raids on dens of addicts where 100 prisoners were reported seized. Reliable informants declared the captives, who had failed to obey stern orders to "be cured by New Year's or die!" would probably be shot Friday but municipal officials kept strict silence on execution plans. The raiding parties scattered through various parts of Peiping, estimated by authorities to have an addict population of 100,000. Dreamy slumbers of the inmates of the dens were interrupted by the entrance of strong-arm police squads which combed the dark passages of the illicit houses. Most of the prisoners were reported to be low-class Chinese and beggars. Gen. Sung Chen-Yuan, chairman of the Hopeh-Chahar political council and personally directing the anti-narcotic campaign, was represented by authoritative sources as inclined to show leniency to the addicts who expressed willingness to be treated. These, it was said, might receive life imprisonment instead of death sentences. Dealers who disobeyed the governmental order will probably be shot summarily, officials predicted. Knutson Bill Would Abolish Reciprocal Trade Agreements WASHINGTON, (.$>)—Abolition of • reciprocal trade agreements was proposed in a bill Wednesday by Representative Harold Knutson, St. Cloud, Minn., republican. Knulson also introduced a joint resolution designed to permit farmers unable to pay seed and feed loans from 1933 to 1936 to work out indebtedness on farm lo market roads.

Pottorff, Davis county farmer, died of injuries received when a coal truck he was attempting Lo push from the mud skidded and trapped him against a building. RICHARD CROOKS On a recent visit to Akron. Ohio, he went out to the -Firestone employes' farms and became so interested in the fall plowing that he spent several hours driving one of the tractors. "Like thousands of other Americans I have had a rather dim idea that when I retired I might go back to the farm," said Crooks. "This afternoon's work has convinced me it isn't such a bad idea. Farm work seems to have been considerably lightened and much easier than it was a few years ago. Driving a pneumatic rubber tired tractor makes plowing easy and speedy, I must revive the farm idea with my wife." Crooks sings on the Voice of Firestone radio program every Monday evening over WHO at 7:30. Henry Busse, whose orchestra is heard over NBC, said nothinc Christmas day or the day after when the 1" members of the group failed to give any evidence of knowing- what the meaning of "Christmas grift" is, even though their maestro had given each of them a cocktail outfit on Christmas eve. The hoys waited through Sunday, hoping Busse's curiosity would lead him to make inquiries. When it didn't they finally presented him with a movie camera outfit, complete with projector. Then and only then he confessed that he had been completely baffled by their silence, and had asked his wife if she knew of anything he had done to offend them. * * * "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," from the classic musical production "Roberta," will be sung by Miss Evelyn Case when Rubinoff presents the next in the series of "Musical Moments" program from station WHO Friday'"nigrrt at 10 o'clock.

Chasins will be assisted in the . interpreation by Constance Kecnc, his 12 year old protege' who, this year, made her radio debut over the NBC networks on NEW FEARS FOR KIDNAPED BOY Cold Alarms Parents Who Fear He May Surfer From Exposure. TACOMA, Wash., (£•)— Coldest weather of the winter Thursday alarmed the parents of kidnaped Charles Mattson'who believed the 10 year old boy might be suffering from exposure. •The thermometer sank to 15 above zero during the night, as the abductor ignored opportunities to. return the victim or collect $28,000 ransom. Dr. W: W. Mattson, the boy's father and a prominent Tacoma physician and surgeon, was more apprehensive that Charles, recovering from a cold when seized Dec. 27, might be seriously affected if he were being kept in an outlying poorly heated shack as-some other kidnap victims have been. Dr. Mattson has made. careful preparations for the boy's care when and if he is turned loose. Would Go to Hospital. If Charles were released .at a prearranged place and found either by the family or federal agents, there was reason to. believe he would be placed in a hospital instead of being taken to the large, old English style Mattson home. He might be freed on a lonely country road—like- George Weyerhaeuser was—and discovered by a resident who might take him directly to the house. Precautions NEW ADVERTISEMENT SEATTLE, (f?)— The Seattle Times carried a new advertisement in its personal column —fourth of a series believed to be from the family of Charles Mattson of Tacoma, to his kidnapers.

I will do as instructed without anyone knowing.—Ann, ately. Reporters deserted the smoking vacant lot campfire ai omul- which they have shivered for 10 days. Within a few hours, the lack of a check on the Mattson home produced hall; a dozen rumors the ransom; payment had- been made and the boy returned. Return Is Denied. By Mattson categorically denied the return, asserting: "There's no one by .- that name, (Charles) here. I wish there were." ' .Dr. ' Mattson ^ delivering his prepared statement, ^obviously was : suffering' from '• great strain ., and appeared to r fear strongly for his: son's safety. The statement was typewritten and unsigned. 1'n view of the lapse of time and because-of our desire to leave nothing undone to effect the safe return of our son, .my wife and I at this time request that all members of the press in this" vicinity make no further surveillance of any kind or nature whatsoever of my movements at any hour of the day or night .and.that my home be not watched," it stated in'part "Will Realize • Anxiety." " x x x -I feel certain, nowever, that all'parents at least will realize the terrible anxiety which my wife and I are suffering and our desperate desire to see our son once more." i Officers • of Utah and Nevada were, stirred to activity by the report of a.

FREE Glassware TANKAR GAS South Federal Avenue Mason City, Iowa were being made to prevent the child being overly excited. "I've got to consider that boy first," said the doctor. "I don't know what condition he will be in when he is found." Never Was Robust. Charles, while not delicate, is slight and never has been robust When he was stolen from the living room of his home he wore clothing suitable only indoors— blue knickers, a blue jacket'and house slippers. A report Wednesday from a merchant in Shelton, Wash., indicated the kidnaper may; have bought heavy underwear-.' and -a sweater for him. Unless this were true, Charles was illy attired for the weather. ' The frigid night passed with no word from the kidnaper, although all avenues to the Mattson family home were left entirely unguarded so the kidnaper could freely collect the money and liberate the boy. Assured of Safety . The kidnaper was assured of safety by complete inactivity of all law enforcement agencies. The department of justice, state patrolmen and city police all have acquiesced to the plea by Dr. Mattson that no action be taken which might endanger the life of his son, held captive 11 days. •-. Even the corps of newspapermen and photographers which has been at the Mattson residence since Dec. 27 was absent Thursday to give the kidnaper an open road to the family. No Interest in Spencer Clews. Officers here manifested "no interest" in "kidnap clews'" from Spencer, Iowa, San Francisco, and Las Vegas, Nev. There was no indication the ransom has been paid. The boy had not been returned. Belief the payment still pended was based on a second voluntary statement to the press given Wednesday by Dr. Mattson. In it he asked newspapermen to follow the example of law officers in allowing him free rein in his dealings with the kidnaper. The doctor requested the watch be removed from his home, stories of advertisements believed to-be contact efforts be stopped and his personal activities be left free of surveillance.
