Dickinson, writing from Washington, D. C., directed a personal answer to The Algona Upper Des Moines, this week, In reply to an editorial carried In this newspaper last week, entitled, "Dickinson and Debts." His letter follows: "Your editorial in the last issue of your paper is noted. I have scarcely made a speech in which I have not suggested what I thought was the proper form of relief. To date no newspaper man has carried any notation with reference to that phase of my suggestions. In order that you may understand my position, I am enclosing copy of a Detroit statement under date of Nov. 28, 1933, and on page twelve you will find a notation as to the future program, followed by five suggestions with regard to remedy. You may make such use of this as you desire." Signed, L. J. Dickinson. three ateters, Caroline-of-Three J ,._„... tfontana, Elizabeth Green of Sauk Center, Minn., and Mary, who resides at home with her aged mother. One >rother, Joe and his father have preceded him in death. Mr. Frankl possessed a keen business iblllty and was an honest law-abiding itizen. Funeral services were conduct- d Tuesday morning at nine o'clock at he local Catholic church with Father Davern officiating and burial was in the Ugona Catholic cemetery, the remains being placed beside his departed son and. daughter. Pall bearers were Joe Kelly, Joe Harig, Matt Lamuth, Barney Capesius, Sebastian Kramer and H. E. Platt. ; To those familiar with the second floor of the postoffice building, there need be no description of the proximity of the offices of Carroll A. Wander and the Bell Grain Co., where Andy Anderson holds forth. Nor need there be any description of the debates that occur between occupants of the two offices. But to those not familiar with the scene, we might state that If you are seeking peace and quiet, and want to get as far away from discussions on football, baseball or other controversial subjects, steer clear of the locality. But lest we lead anyone to believe that these arguments are serious, we might add that promptly at the noon whistle, Carrol and Andy may be seen marching down the street to the restaurant, which Is a mighty good lesson that arguments can be enjoyed and forgotten. Carrol A. Wander Is a native born son of Kossuth county. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Wander, are one of the prominent families of the Fenton community. Carrol graduated From Fenton high in 1926, Immediately entering the State University of Iowa. He graduated from the law school there in 1932, and in the spring of 1933 opened his law office here. His great hobby is baseball, and fans of. the Fenton, Lone Rock and Algona teams have seen him wearing the respective uniforms of these communities. With Robert Harrington, Joe Lowe and T. C. h Hutchison, Carroll is one of the four recent additions to the prominent legal talent of the county. While in school, and as a member of the Sigma Pi social and Phi Alpha Delta legal fraternities, he had the opportunity to make the close, person- al acquaintances of Iowa's Joe Laws, mentioned for All-Amertcan football honors. He says that Joe plays the ukelele and sings as well as he pilots the Hawkeyes, an angle that sports writers have thus far overlooked, strangely. —Photo by Peterson Studio Carrol A. Wander Kossuth county d appeal was not dimmed during Carrol's years at school, and he chose to return here to begin his law practice.

This paper, evidently, will be the first one in the United States to print Senator Dickinson's plan for recovery. Dickinson's Program Excerpts from the senator's speech, with regard to what he advises for the future program, follow: "It has been contended that those of us opposing this (the administration's) program have a selfish motive in view. This cannot be charged to me. I have no personal interest in either the success or failure In any line of business. I do have a general interest in protecting the citizens of America. I do not believe that their interests can be protected by any such program as has been inaugurated. *** "I would suggest the following steps for recovery— "First— repeal of the Recovery Act, and the restoration of business to its own resources. "Second—the stabilization of our currency in cooperation with the leading countries of the world, and the repeal of all authorizations or delegations to the president to print paper money, or monetize silver or debase the gold dollar. "Third—the practice of government economies, and the curtailment of expenditures, and the abandonment of ;he public building program where actual construction has not been commenced. "Fourth—Repeal or curtail all the functions of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation in order to take the government out of many lines of business in which it is now participating.

Six indictments by the grand jury end the granting of four divorces con- .tituted the chief business of the November term of district court to date. The petit jury was dismissed until next Tuesday. The case of James A. Canada for alteration of a public record in connection with a primary vote of Dennis Goeders of Algona, member of the fish and game commission was continued until the next term of court. The indictments follow: John Steil, Algona, illegal possession of intoxicating liquor. E. G. Joy, Fort Dodge, violation of cigarette law. Bruce Peck, grand larceny. Ferd Bretihorst, Algoma, illegal. possession of intoxicating liquor. John Wright, obtaining property under false pretenses. Herman Erdmann, illegal possession of intoxicating liquor. Motion for dismissal was made by the grand jury in. the case of Ewaldt Zuetlau of LuVerne, charged with malicious mischief and willful trespass. The jury reported a lack of evidence. The divorces were granted in the coses of Augusta Kinney vs Amos Kinney of Bancroft, Eleanor Mae Wanzer vs Frank Wanzer, Sam Heathershaw vs Fae W. Heathershaw of Swea City, and Annie O. Benson vs Walter E. Benson of Bancroft. Returning of Indictments by the grand jury does not mean that the defendants are guilty of the charges against them, it merely holds them for trial before a petit jury on the charge brought against them by the state. Indictments are returned on the strength of a reasonable amount of evidence, Stall's place was visited by officers Nov. 24, who testified that they found 18 gallons of wine and some fermented mash. Brethorst's place yielded a tin of alcohol about two-thirds full, the testimony stated, and 116 empty gallon cans. Peck's indictment was the result of a grain disposal matter, In which the charge was made that the grain was the property of F. H. Jackson. Guy Butts, Wesley banker, filed the Information. Joy is charged with selling cigarettes in Whittemore, Nov. 20, without a permit to do so. Wright's case results from a controversy over 1583 bushels of corn, which witnesses testified belong to F. C. Lovrien, but was delivered to Wright by the tenant, Win. Neuroth, when Wright, told him he owned it. Judge George A Heald of Spencer is presiding judge at this term of court.

CORONER'SJURY RETURNS VERDICT , AFTER CONFESSION Lamp Exploded in Barn ort Steil Farm, Testimony Discloses BOOZE ON PREMISES KEPT MEN SILENT* Mystery surrounding the fatal burn* ng of Vcrnle Kleven, 20, was cleared up yesterday to the satisfaction of a coroner's jury, who has been inves- Igatlng the circumstances surrounding he affair since it happened, Nov. 21. The verdict of the jury follows: "That the said Vernie Kleven came to its death caused by severe burns hrough the accidental exploding of a amp, on Nov. 21, at the farm occupied by one John Steil, and that the death was not feloniously caused." The jury consisted of J. A. Harlg, i. W. Keith and A. A. Sterling. Many Testify Witnesses called during the investl- ation Included John Steil, Elmer Steil, Ferd Brethorst, Lowell King, Mrs. Jennie Kleven, Oscar Hentges, Dlnny ientfees, N. J. Alexander and Louis Belsch. County Attorney Maurice McMahon stated that Elmer Steil admitted dur- ng the testimony that he and Tony Erdmann (the latter could not be found for questioning) • had taken Kleven to the Kossuth hospital following the accident in SteU's car. Explanation for their failure to come forth with the Information as to who took Kleven to the hospital,'and other details of tine accident; is given aa due to the fact that liquor'was on the Steil premises. This fact was substantiated by the arreat of 8teU on a charge of Illegal possession of intoxicating 11- quor, and his plea-ot guilty to tha toe ajter ^g^atpdOMOW^ by the grand Jury. He was fined $800 but released on payment of $100, the remainder of the. fine. being suspended. Fearing implications if details of the affair were disclosed, the Stells kept silent until examined by t*e coroner's lury. Barn Not Damaged Kleven was working in the Steil barn at the time of the explosion, which) set his clothes afire. Before the fire could be put out he was burned so badly that he died a few days later, His home was in Jordan, Minn. The fire in the barn was extinguished without serious damage, according to the testimony, and traces of it covered up so> that when the sheriff and coroner's jury first paid a visit to the place, they did not find evidence of the fire. Later questioning brought out these facts, however, it was stated. Erdmann Farm Raided by Officers Sheriff Carl Dahlhauser, Constable Floyd Newville and two state men paid a visit to the Herman Erdmann farm, near Algona, last Friday, and arrested Erdmann after they found a barrel of mash and a five gallon still in an adjacent corn field, as well as five cases of pint bottles and several new five gallon kegs.
