Jury Picked in Damage Suit on Tot's Fatal Fall Angela Asks $12,500 of Wolf Brothers A jury of 9 women and 3 men will hear the evidence in the $12,509 suit of Peter Angelo against Samuel E. and Harry R. Wolf. The suit involves the death of Mr. and Mrs. Angelo's 29 months old son, James, when he fell from their 3rd floor apartment window in the Holahan building, owned by the Wolf brothers. Angelo claims that the boy fell from the window because the screen was insecure in its frame. He charges that in return for a 15 per cent rent increase in August, 1947, the landlords promised to repair the frames and screens. The boy fell to his death Aug. 20, 1948. Jurors hearing the evidence in Judge -T. A. Beardmore's court are Lillian Freeman, Roekford; Stella Trimble, Swaledale; Lester Krukow, Rockwell; J. D.

Have Proved Productive in Many Fields List Includes 138 World War Vets The Mason City office of the Iowa State Employment Service in the first 9 months of 1949 made placements totaling 202 physically handicapped workers, Manager C. W. Cowan announced Thursday. Of this number, 138 were World war veterans, according to S. J. Patterson, veterans administration employment t'epresentative. Cowan said, "We in the employment service have at least 4 main objectives in the local community to promote the use of handicapped workers. "They are: (1) to promote employer acceptance of men and women with physical-handicaps as able productive workers in jobs for which they are qualified by experience, aptitude and training; (2) to promote job opportunities and continued employment for this community's handicapped workers; (3) to encourage employers to list theu* job openings with the local office of the Iowa State Employment Service, thereby widening the job chances for handicapped woi'kers in the community who are registered for employment and (4) to more fully acquaint handicapped persons and employers with the services available through the ISES and the local veterans employment representative, the state services of vocational rehabilitation and the services of the veterans administration." Waiting List Small This week, national employ the physically handicapped week, finds the local office with a small waiting list of handicapped workers. They have been placed with a minimum of waiting due to the efforts of Cowan, Patterson, Frank Fiala, Jr., assistant office manager, and the staff. Several placements were cited in varying occupations. Paul R. Meyer, 539 4th N. .E., spent 6 months in an army hospital with malaria and dermititis.

Life of Adler in Radio Play Sketch Is Feature of Newspaper Week As a tribute to National Newspaper week, a dramatic radio sketch of the highlights of the life of Emanuel P. Adler, president until his death last March of the A. W. Lee group of mid-western daily newspapers, was presented over KGLO Wednesday night. The feature, which was transcribed in the studios of Radio Station WFIL, Philadelphia, where it was developed and presented as oart of a series of inspiring programs entitled "Within Our Gates," was introduced by W. Earl Hall, editor of the Mason City Globe- Gazette, a member of the group of which Mr. Adler was president. "As long as I live I shall treasure my memories of the man who for almost 24 years. I was proud to call 'Boss,' " said Mr. Hall. "As conspicuously as any man I've ever known, Mr. Adler exemplified the loftiest standards and principles of good journalism. Worthy of Freedom "In his thinking the much talked of 'Freedom of the Press' was not enough. He demanded—and he spent his life working for—a press worthy of its freedom. His life was dedicated to that ideal." The scenes enacted were taken quite ' largely from a book titled "The Lee Papers—a Saga of Midwest Journalism," written and printed by the Lee Newspaper group 2 years ago, in honor of Mr. Adler's 75th birthday. The sketch covered his life from birth a year after the Chicago fire to his death last March. It told the story of his first job as a printer's apprentice, for which he received a dollar a week actually paid by his father in secret for the privilege of allowing his son to learn the trade. At 21 Adler decided that he wanted to be a reporter. At that time he was making $12 a week as a printer, but had to start at $9 as a reporter. His rise after this was rapid, however, through the city room and into the business department. Carries Out Ideals When A. W. Lee acquired the Times for his chain, Mr. Adler was named as publisher, and the sequences which followed showed 1 how he carried out his ideals in the publishing business. Scenes of how he saved the Times for Davenport and of his saving the Union bank during a financial crisis, revealed his amazing capacity for engending faith in the people with whom he dealt. The dramatic sketch of Adler's life showed in a powerful way that a publisher, to be good, mus't do more than publish a newspaper. Barrels Gets Link-Belt Post at Boston Porter Bui-rets, son of Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Burrets, 221 2nd N. W., is one of 9 young members of the Link-Belt company organization to receive special training for assignments throughout the corporation's widespread territory. Mr. Burrets, who was home for a brief -visit before going to his new post at Boston, joined the company last year after bein'g graduated from the State University of Iowa and service in "World war II. He was one of a group of graduates selected from colleges and universities for special technical training in the sales field. Ink-Links, company publication printed at the Pershing Road plant in Chicago, recently ran a page article with pictures on the work of this group, pointing out that the first major plan of the pro- gram was now completed arid that after months of intensive study :he men were being given their assignments. "These men," said Ink-Links, 'weigh heavily in the future of Link-Belt. "Before you can sell for Link- Belt, there are thousands of questions you must be able to answer quickly and well for customers. These men came t.o learn the answers." The training included a month at the Caldweil plant in Chicago, 2 months in Indianapplis and a month in Philadelphia.' They are scheduled to be at their new assignments Oct. 15.
