2 Escape Jail, Give Selves Up Red Oak, </?)_Ulysses S. Walker, 26, and Wayne S. Cunningham, 18, both of Red Oak, escaped from the county jail Saturday night but were free only 3 hours before they returned and gave themselves up. After their return at midnight, Sheriff George Christian said they told this story: They opened* an Inside door by inserting a spoon handle in the lock. They made their escape when the outer door blew open and walked 3J miles to the farm of Cunningham's father. They had planned to go to Missouri but the elder Cunningham talked them into returning to jail and brought them to Red Oak. Walker and Cunningham were arrested Aug. 26, and were being held under $1,000 bond for the October grand jury on grand larceny charges. They were charged in connection with the theft of a quantity of woven wire from the farm of Elmer Bass, Red Oak, state representative. Sheriff Christian said he believed the men had outside help in making their escape but Walker and Cunningham have denied this. Both men previously have served terms in industrial schools and jails.

Buddy Clark Killed When Plane Falls Los Angeles, (/P) — With fear freezing the warm, rich voice that made him famous, Singer Sam (Buddy) Clark, 38, crashed to his death Saturday night. The 2-engine plane in which he and 4 others were riding slammed into heavy trcffic on 'a major boulevard with a roar that brought hundreds to the scene in a matter of seconds. Clark was the only fatality. A minute and a half before the crash, said Sam Hayes, who survived with minor injuries, "we all knew that this was it." "We had been noisy and talkative all the way back from the Michigan-Stanford game at Palo Alto," Hayes said Sunday, "but from the moment we knew we were going to crack up there was not a sound uttered. We were all oo scared to speak. "Somehow I remembered the acrobats in a circus I saw Friday night, and how relaxed they were in their tumbling. At the last moment I made myself go limp and ust rolled right out of the plane. [ guess that's what saved me." Hayes, 44, is one of the west coast's best known news commen- Ex-Auditor Dies in Cedar Rapids Des Moines, (/P)—Dalton E.

Send Social Security Bill On to House •Washington, (fP) — The house rules committee Mnoday sent social security expansion.legislation to the house under a rule barring any changes. The rules committee vote to bar amendments was 5 to 4. One member said 5 democrats supported the rule and 4 republicans opposed. The republicans callec the "this or nothing" procedures a "gag" rule. Whatever . the house does, the senate plans no action until nex year. Chairman George (D-Ga.; of the senate finance committee has predicted senate approval then of social security expansion. In the background is a hope among some lawmakers that housi action on a broader old age pen sion program might help smootl out some of the labor disputes ove pensions. The steel strike center around the issue of whether stee industry workers should have pension system wholly paid for b; employers. Under the governmen pension system, the cost is fi nanced equally by employers and employes. The social security bill would increase old age and survivors' insurance benefits materially. For instance, it would boost from $41 to $79 a month the pension for a man over 65, with a wife over 65, who has been in the program for 10 years at an average wage of $100 a month, if the monthly pay averaged $250, the pension would go up from $66 to $102. One Man's Opinion (Continued from Page 1) pored over them by the hundreds, starting with one titled "Getting Established on the Land" and noving on to others such as "Some lommon Mushrooms and How to Know Them." But alas the problems facing the Spences, and especially Margaret weren't the same ones which seemed sp utterly easy of solution in the v government bulletins. Somebody was always changing the signals in the middle of a play. With the war at an end, Hartzell was free to relieve Margaret of some of her managerial duties on the 5and and direct her attention to the house and the housework. By bitter experience he discovered that the things which seemed so simple in the books weren't that way in actual practice. Sample of Adversity Here let me dip into Chapter 10 for a case in point: "The asparagus was a curiosity that I do not to this day understand. We set it according to instruction, in a deep trench, covering tt gradually as it grew. We were tempted to cut and eat these choice young shoots—but the book said not to touch them the first year. We waited. "The second year none of the asparagus came up. But by some ingenuity of nature, wild asparagus abounded in every fence row writing and more time for thinking. Their Ideas Change There was a time when both of the Spences viewed with contempt that story of the peace and contentment—and the "good life"— which their South American friend built around his land reclamation project That was when for worries and, blisters they were getting more worries and blisters. But now, with their great house transformed from a mere center of farming operations into a home, "began to relax," as Mr. Spence puts it. "Rid of the pressure of large- scale farm enterprises, our minds were free to react to the benign stimuli of nature and the excitements of the children," he wrote in Chapter 17. It Left Them Cold Once shortly after the advent of their new-found freedom, the Spences went to New York for a few days to renew some .of their old associations. They didn't have a good time. The sophisticated pleasures, which in the past had delighted them, now left them cold. They had forgotten how to be witty. There were plays, concerts and parties. It was all very boring! The only pleasurable interludes during the visit to their old haunts were a visit to the zoo—with their 2 children—a ferryboat ride to Staten Island and their meals at restaurants offering dishes unprocurable at home. For the Single Life The philosophical impact produced by this New York experi- Episcopalians Okay Change in Marriage Canons San Francisco, (U.R)—The house of deputies will vote on a measure to admit women to its ranks and will consider dropping the word "Protestant" from the official church name at Monday's sessions of the 56th general convention of the Protestant Episcopalian church. Delegates began their day with 6:30 a. m. Holy Communion in city churches. Some changes in the marriage canons of the church were approved over the weekend, including a provision that divorced persons must wait one year after a final divorce decree before they may be married by the church with a bishop's consent. No Man to Bump Newburyport, Mass., (U.R)— Thomas J. O'Brien, Jr., picked the wrong car to tangle with in an automobile accident. It was driven by the city marshal. O'Brien was fined $35 for drunken driving. ESCAPES FROM JAIL Dubuque, (ff) —Daniel Jones, 31, of Nashville, Tenn., escaped Sunday night from the Dubttque county jail by going over an electric warning fance. Jones was serving a 6-months term for larceny.

We did not hear about these volunteers, however, until the farm hands had harvested and consumed them. "Operating then on the Louis Bromfield theory that gardeners should give plants a natural habitat and growing condition, 1 last year scattered asparagus seed along the fence rows where the 'earlier volunteer growth had appeared. This year there is no asparagus whatever along the fence rows, but there are a few volunteers in the garden, among the cabbages." Story of 2 Bulls One frustration after another is recalled by Hartzell, including 2 delicious stories about 2 bulls— Horatio, alias Ferdinand, and Bando, short for Bandolere. It's obvious that he was saved by a delicious sense of humor, for the jokes were all on himself. In the end, prompted by a realization that despite all his work and worry, he was headed toward the poprhouse, the Spences reached a decision to cut down on their acreage and leave technical farming to somebody .with an adequate know-how. An advantageous sale of part of the farm was effected and the Spences were free to go living in the now pretty well rehabilitated manor house, with its view of the Blue Ridge mountains. It was then that Mr. Spence turned philosopher and he had a good bit in his own recent experience to philosophize about. Not for a Greenhorn For one thing he recognized that farming isn't for a greenhorn—not even a smart greenhorn. This recognition was expressed in this paragraph: "If I cannot make a go of this thing when farm prices are the highest in history, what will I do when things are not so favorable? Everything has been in my favor. Everything, that is, except the one outstanding necessity: knowledge. "What little I had learned in 3 years had taught me, actually, only one thing: that without years of practice, intensive knowledge, strenuous frugality and instinctive trading ability, nobody but a chucklehead would try fanning. I was a cttucklehead indeed. And oh, my aching back." But with farming operations greatly reduced—to a minimum, in fact—life .has been different, and better for the Spences, as Hartzell brings out in his final chapters. There has been more time for recreation, more time for ence, plus the restful serenity of life in Gaston Hall, minus most of its acres, was stated by ' Mr. Spence in these words: "The genial effect of this metamorphosis tempts me to the conclusion that an absolute essential to contentment is a resolute avoidance of the temptation to be su- percivilized. "Too easily can happiness be killed, the innocent casualty of the war waged by the mind to impose an artificial existence against which the subconscious continuously rebels. "Whether we know it or not, we yearn for the timeless fundamentals of simplicity that bring peace of mind. The heart, ,not the head is ruler of us yet, and all our questing after psychiatry has not proved otherwise. "Neuroses, I am inclined to believe, flourish in the veneer, not in the heart oak." Again: His Old Faith Returns "In the city I almost lost that faith into which I was born. Now in the country, which has whittled me down to my proper size and released in me the power to adjust myself to my limitations, I find myself recapturing the old faith ... "This faith, born of rural living, gives us serenity and hope. It is the product of too much struggle to be jeopardized by a removal from the 'environment that has produced it. And, added to the other credits,in the ledger of rural life, it produces a trial balance strongly in favor of continued country living." Yes, I'd have liked "Happily Ever After" even if I hadn't known its author, Hartzell Spence. British Set to Recognize Chinese Reds London, (U.R) — Great Britain is inclined to recognize the new communist government in China, but will hold off if the United States objects, informed sources reported Monday. The government was reported intending to present a common front with the United States on the Chinese question in order to deny communist propaganda any chance of playing one western cotmtry against another. The British intentions were sketched shortly after a foreign office spokesman said the government would consult with all commonwealth and Atlantic pact countries before making its de- Doiry Ccrttfe Congress Open in Waterloo Waterloo, (A 1 )—The gates swung open at 7 a. m. here Monday on the 37th annual National Dairy Cattle Congress and affiliated expositions. The exposition will run through Sunday. Entries from all of the 48 states, 83 of the 99 counties in Iowa and Canada, have arrived on the grounds and everything is in readiness to present the biggest of ali dairy shows. Six breeds of cattle are being shown this year, including Ayrshire, Brown Swiss, Guernsey, Holstein, Jersey and .milking Shorthorns. Monday is children's day at the congress. Show officials anticipated a record number of persons will swarm over the ground on opening day. Complimentary attractions to the Dairy Cattle Congress include the Midwest Industrial Exposition, the National ^Belgian Horse Show and the Midwest Saddle Horse Show. 'Judging opened early Monday morning with competition in the Iowa Future Farmers of America dairy cattle section, In the afternoon judging will begin among milking Shorthorns and Belgian horses. First hippodrome program will be Monday afternoon, with emphasis placed on pleasing the large children's day crowd. Afternoon and evening programs will be presented throughout the exposition. Nine-tenths of the big game animals in the United States are deer. sources emphasized cision. Informed that Britain would not act alone. They said the government's policy now could be described as one of watchful waiting. "Any diplomatic decisions regarding China will be made in close consultation and collaboration not only with the commonwealth members and Atlantic pact powers, but with other important interested countries," officials said. They would not elaborate further. But it was understood Siam, Burma and Indo-China would be included in forthcoming discussions which officials said must await official notes from the New China government. The government still was accredited to the Chinese nationalist government. If the communists insisted on withdrawal of recognition from the nationalists, it would raise a question of international diplomacy which must be discussed with all other interested powers, officials said. Dies in Ohio Goltlfield—Funeral services will be held here Monday afternoon for Mrs. Miza Gerdes, 90, former Goldfield resident, who died at Dayton, Ohio, Thursday.
