Take A Look Merchants Charge Unfaii lax Collection, Ex-Em- ploye Scores Mayor CAHUTUEHSVILLE, Mo., May a —One of HID stormiest sessions ever known prevailed here In (lie regular tnoiUlily mecling of Hie cily council, at which time ap iralntivc offices were filled by Mnyqr O. O. Pinion. Earlier in Uic council mooting two proiniueiil local iiiercliaufi appeared before Hie council lo lodge complaints and charge fav oritism in the city's methods of enforcing and collecting certain city taxes and license fees. The merchants are C. ,c. Nelson, well known grain a»d coal dealer, and Cliuule Balrri, grocerymcin. Both had previously been hailed ' into city police court lor non-payment of dealers' licenses, nml both protested to the council .that other similar coal and grain dealers and Brocei-ymcn had neither paid their licenses'"uor ibaen.hailed into cily police caiirt. Tim council, arur hearing Nol.son. rated tc refund a fine assessed him, and in the healed debate, a verbal occurred between Cily Collector R. L, Tms- Icy and Nelson, Following the open session, the council went into executive session while Mayor Pinion offered his selections for the appointive officers, lo be rated on by the council. Following (lie executive session, a second verbal onslaught was made against the mayor and council by Miss Josephine Van Cleve, former assistant city clerk, wlio stated she had been led to believe by the mayor and mem- bets of the council that she was in line for appointment to (ho city clerkship, but her name was not offered for the position by [lie mayor in the executive session. As in 1938, Mayor Pinion instituted n rather broad "ouster" of city employees. Three new 'noltce- men were appointed, being tlie pnly ones mentioned by-the mayor for the posts, a new city clerk, and salaries of two other employee; were reduced. Several oilier cily appointive officers, including Kir'e Chief Victor Mallourc, were rc- appointcd. New policemen named were Bob Oiniby, Jimmy Knight and Chester Moore. They replace Jimmy Tipton Jr., son of Alderman J. W. Tjpton, Sr, Prank Harris and Bill :i\load. S. H.

Ownby is a former deputy sheriff, having served as chief deputy under the late Sheriff S. E. Judcn. Knight has formerly been identified with the local police system. B. H. England was re-named city street commissioner, by a 5-3 vote, and his salary reduced from S1DO to 5125 per month. Last summer an investigation was conducted at the authorization of (he council into the administration of England's office, and a resolution to dismiss him was introduced, but failed to curry by a two thirds majority vote of the council. Bcrnic Jones was re-appointed assistant street commissioner and his salary exit from S25 to $22.50 per week. Jim Mosley was also re-named as an assislant. street commissioner, at a salary ol $11.50 per week.

Mothers Hitler, Mussolini and J.)jii S aslivMi ^___ , J O ' By NBA Service There would be no joy in Mother's Day for the Mothers of the world's three leading dictators. They did not raise their sons to be revolutionaries and war makers. Klara Poelnl Hitler, Donna Rosa Mussolini and Ekctcrina 'Gcorgiivna Djiigashvili. j Stalin's mother. Ekatcrina DJM-] gashvili, raised her pock-mnrked ! son to be a priest,. "Soso's" career, hi blood ami revolution was the i greatest tragedy of her life. [ Donna Mussolini was a school | , teacher, a woman of extraordinary ] energy and refinement. Rough and | ; rendy as was the Duce's blnck- i , smith father, quiet, and cultured' i was his mother, JIad she lived she might have turned the truculent Benito from his rowdy ways. He 1 adored his mother, she was the J .only person who could control him. i At 25, Kjara ' Poelzl, who had run away from her Austrian home ! to seek the glitter of Vienna, re-1 turned, a broken woman. Slid married a widower with two chil-1 dren, Alois Hitler, a man 23 years I older than she, gave birth lo two more children, one a sickly lad called Adolf. In Adolf she hoped to realise everything she had not herscH. She wanted Adolf to be a power In Vienna, the Vienna of art and culture ant) wealth. They held one thing in common, these mothers of the dictators . . .,. the thing common to ail mothers;'. . . they, wanted • more for their sons than they' themselves had known. The Ujugashvilis, Slalin's parents, were pitifully poor. His father was n shoemaker, as the Dju- gashvilis had been for generations. But Ekaterina Aiugashvili' ivanted more for her "Soso," who was born with his .left arm partially paralyzed, and other defects. She had lost her first three children, vowed that if this child lived 'he would be a priest. To chat end she sacrificed to send him .to a' seminary. But at the seiiii- nary "Soso" (her pet name) became the .leader of a secret group of Socialists. He .lived the life ol a Revolutionary thereafter. Stalin visited his mother last at Tiflis in 1935, and the Russian I press made much of it. "Soso wjis' always a good boy," said the' mother of the man in the Kremlin, but, lo the last she considered W. Philips, city physician; Miss Nellie Summers, waterworks bookkeeper; and the board of health comprised of Drs.'e.'F. Cain, P. J Aquino, and P. u Ogilvin. Alderman W. H. Johnson was named mayor pro-tern, replacing Gordon Wright, who had held the post for several years. Boy Miller svUtliK. Mo.. May !>. - -Milrt. Roscni; M.
