"Ctemenceau failed to be elected president of France; Lloyd George •was retired as prime minister of England; Wilson's League of Nations was repudiated by America and no military leader of any country was given civil honors except the-great German. "It was a striking tribute to his sincerity, character, honesty of purpose and the deep love of his country which was a basic element of his.entire career. The best type oL.the trained soldier, he was deserved all the honors which have come to him." March's feeling was echoed by others. Mr. and Mrs. Gene Sills spent Sunday with Mrs. Sills' mother.

OUT OUR WAY By Williams CABINET NAMES HITLER TO DOUBLE POSITION (Continued from Pape One I who at their work heard the death announcement were passing it from door to door, and it went from street to street and from town to country all over Germany When the announcement came that Hitler was leader at last, •without the sluhborn hand of Hindenburg to oppose him when old and new clashed, householders ana porters were just bringing out their black flags, or nazi flags draped in crepe. The flags on public buildings were half masted. Traffic, and Berlin's work, went on. Knots of people began gathering at street corners. ,The huge swastikas, and t.he i hl ; ack, white and red flag, on the reichstag building drooped on their poles in the quiet air. It was the burning of the reicb- stag that put Hitler in real power by giving him an excuse to crush the Iff* wing opposition elements. While Germans wondered what the future would bring, the radio flashed out its waves silently over the street crowds the next announcement from Goebells: "The law which permitted the leader to take over the reich president's duties went into force at the moment of death. "The German people will give the reich president a state funeral." Wilhelm Frick, minister of interior, announced a period of national mourning. Orders were sent out that flags should fly at halt mast for two weeks on all military buildings and ships. Officials and public servants were ordered to wear mourning bands on their left sleeves. There seemed not a thought for old Wilhelm H at Doom, the former emperor, who ordered of the German army while Hitler was ha.nging wall paper twenty years ago. Hitler became head of t.he entire state and commander in chief of, the army and navy. It seemed possible to overemphasize his new control over the army. There was some criticism by higher officers of the manner in which the June 30 storm revolt was suppressed and of the earlier outbreaks of the 'nazl radicals •whom the suppression of the revolt quieted. But the new turn o£ events put Hitler on top, it was believed. Undoubtedly Hindenhurg has many followers who will support Hitler with less enthusiasm—the junken. or great landowners, the industrialists and high reich officer*. Tnese are all expert intrlg V*TS, but It seemed not a moment for intrigue. Monarchist sentiment was not considered. Under Hitler it is les a question than it was under Hind <obiirg. A group of 26 Iowa State college students taking farm crops and an imal husbandry courses, returned to Ames late Wednesday from a month's tour of agricultural, beef and dairy sections in 12 states. The tour was under direction of Prof. E. R. Benson of the farm crops department, and Prof. A. B. Caine of animal husbandry. The party included Lou Ammo as chef, Jay D. Armstrong, a student, driver of the truck, and Paul Phillips, driver of the bus. The party camped at night, and was royally entertained on various college campuses and at other places along the route, particularly in Texas. 11 INJURED IN STORM BALTIMORE, Md.

ORLEANS SECTOR (Continued from Page One.) here until two weeks ago when Allen ordered city authorities to eliminate them or face removal from office. But Allen told Fleming not to use force. Fleming was fold to make a survey of the "red light district/' to determine what graft was paid and to whom it was paid. Long had charged that the local machine which split with his machine before the municipal election last, fall collected $3.000,000 a year from gamblers and prostitutes. Allen did not say what use he planned to make of the evidence the soldiers collect. A private inspection of the red light area showed the guardsmen would find nothing. U was li!;e a city of the dead; every house locked, shutters closed, not a light showing. Gambling joints wore all closed. Fifty soldiers still held the office of the registrar of voter? for Orleans parish altho a state law making it safe from interference by the local machine went into e-ffeci Wednesday. Before last fall's election police armed with a court order arrested the Long appointed registrar and seized the registration books. The new law prohibits courts from Interfering in any way with the office. Since soldiers seized it. I-J.500 voters have been disfranchised by having their names removed from the hor>l,s. Lone allpRc-d they were Improperly DES MOINES d'J!)—After two days of heat, temperatures in Iowa slid well back below the 100-de- 5ree mark Thursday with good prospects ahead for continued cool weather. Weatherman Charles D. Reed reported showers Wednesday night. Traces of rain fell at Creston, Lamoni, Iowa City and Atlantic. In only one city did the temperatures Wednesday rise above 100. This was at Lamoni with 101 degrees. Coolest Thursday morning was 59 at Inwood. Clear Skies Here Thurs. Clear skies, a brisk' breeze and gradually rising barometer marked the weather codnitions Thursday, following a day of oppressiveness on which the temperature reached a maximum of 98 degrees. The wind died out wholly Wednesday evening, and with a high humidity prevalent, the evening was vividly reminiscent of the intense heat wave of last month. T.he temperature Thursday had risen to 91 at 2 p. m., but a strong breeze coming out of the northwest made the early afternoon quite bearable. Temperature readings at the municipal light plant were: Wednesday 2 p. m. 95, 3 p. m. 97, 4 p. m. 97, 5 p. m. 96, 6 p. m. 94, 7 p.-m. 91, 8 p. m. 87, 9 p. m.

Move to Halt Unsealing of la. Corn Crop DES MOINES, (U.E>—Efforts to halt unsealing of Iowa corn to repay federal loans made last spring were inaugurated Thursday as a drouth relief program. The federal government's com sealing loans expired August 1. Farmers have the option of repaying the money wtich the government loaned them at 45 cents a bushel, or of turning over the grain to the AAA. Inasmuch .as the Iowa cash corn price now is around 60 cents, liquidation of the loans is reportedly already under way. Otha D. Wearin, seventh district congressman, here to confer with drouth relief and AAA officials on the situation, said the liquidation was rapid in north Iowa, where the drouth has not struck seriously and where prospecs are good for a corn crop his fall. He suggested in a telegram to Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace that an embargo be laid down against export of grains from the state in which they were sealed, and continuation of the corn loans. He said this would give farmers an opportunity to hold their corn without forcing repayment of the loans at this time. The threatened corn shortage this fall makes it imperative that the embargo be laid down, Wearin said. If the corn loans were 1 con tinned, he pointed out. it would not be necessary for farmers to repay the loans now. and consequently they would not bs forced to soil their corn to acquire immediate cash. Another bid to aid the- farmer was reported by M. L. Bowman, executive chairman of the Iowa farm debt advisory council, who announced that 22 insurance companies with farm loans in Iowa had agreed not to institute foreclosure proceedings against farms without first seeking revision of the indebtedness thru the advisory set-up.

Henson's farm came to the rescue when a hen abandoned her brood; began "mothering" the chicks; is doing a good job of it; forages for food for them and gets pugnacious whenever any other fowl tries to interfere I with their feeding. I State Contest Dr. Thomas F. Vance of the ery school at Iowa State college, has been chosen as one of tne baby specialists to conduct physical examinations in choosing Iowa's healthiest baby in the annual statewide baby health contest at this year's Iowa State fair in Des Moines.

She was nominated by the 'state central committee Wednes(day after her husband, William !H. Langer, deposed governor, had withdrawn from the ticket. Langer was ousted from the governor's office after he was sentenced to 18 months in Leaven- xvorth prison on charges of soliciting federal employes for donations to a campaign fund. Mrs. Langer, who quit the drawing rooms of New York to jcome to the plains of North Dakota with "Bill," accepted her nomination at once, thanking the : committee husband. for The its faith case was in her an almost exact parallel of that which elevated "Ma" Ferguson to the governorship of Texas. Mrs. Langer's nomination was regarded as a desperate -move of the Langer faction in its bitter fight with Ole Olson, present governor. Clyde "Blackie" Anderson, who | pleaded not guilty to a charge |OC larceny in municipal court [Wednesday morning, was bound lover to the grand jury under ?1,500 bond at the conclusion of the hearing, late Wednesday.

Mitchell, chief justice of Iowa's supreme court in a strong plea for law observance, discounted fears expressed for the overthrow of federal constiution in nls keynote address before the state democratic judicial convention in session here Thursday. "The courts must fail in an interpretation of the law," Mitchell said, "before the constitution itself is in danger." '-*At the present time we hear a great deal of discussion about the constitution of the United States. The American people know it was intended to be and has been adapt- Rioting Strikers Fail to Shatter Kohler's Employer-worker Ideals Wisconsin Industrialist Discusses Effort Build Model Village to Governor Walter J. Kohler, who tended roaring factory furnaces himself In his youth, said Thursday that rioting strikers have failed to shatter his ideals of friendly em- ployer-employe relations, altho they did a thoro job of shattering the windows of his plant. The man who make pink, green and lavender bathtubs popular sat in his office amid a litter of broken glass. National guardsmen outside patrolled the streets of the model industrial village bearing his name seeking to prevent a repetition of the violence which brought two deaths. "1 am not disillusioned about the relations that can be built up." said this industrialist, whose administration as governor in 1931 and 1932 was praised by organized labor. The praise was volunteered in the face of an open shop policy followed by Kohler in his plant. "This strike was not called by our workers. There were relatively fe.w of them in it. Outsiders caused it." Kohler said that in the midst of the labor troubles he found consolation in the fact that residents of he village of Kohler had been loyal their garden village when the lob attacked the plant. "Less than 2 per cent of the Kohler villagers were involved in this strike," he said. "To me that is an indication of their loyalty for their community and the company with which they are identified." The village of Kohler, developed by its early residents under the leadership of the manufacturer, was not a paternalistic project, he emphasized. Kohler was designed as an "American garden village, American in government with an authentic American spirit of individual responsibility and achievement." A subsidiary of the company built many of the diversified modern homes without profit, but employes financed the purchase thru regular building and loan channels. Winding paved streets, bright flowers, recreation places and mod- est but beautiful homes are typical of the village. The families of men who toil ut the furnace or lathe, neighbor without caste ideas with white collar clerks or company «• ecutives. Kohler combed Europe and America for ideas for development of the model village and other industrialists with humanitarian instincts came to copy it. "There isn't another industrial village in the world like it," he said proudly. "No member of the Kohler family is on the village board or other governing body. They set the taxes on their own property and mine. 1 pay mine without protest." Kohler associates, as evidence of his interest in his employes and the development of pleasant surroundings for them, pointed out that Kohler himself abandoned the 12-hour day for furnace workers in favor of an eight-hour day back in the 1890's after tending the factories himself as a youth. Likewise, under his direction, the company adopted a plan for industrial accident insurance several years before it was required by law. Present wages and amount of work are no more satisfactory to company executives today than they are to certain dissatisfied workers and the subject of what to do about, it is the principal topic of executive conferences, the officers said. Under present conditions they can do no more than they are doing, they added. The company averaged 50 weeks of continuous work a y«ar before the depression; never laid oft* workers prior to August, 1933, and maintained full time and wages for workers until February, 1931, when it reduced only their time 10 per cent.

RABBIT DIED OF GRIEF OAKDALE, Cal., (UJ!) —Conclusive evidence that mother love is shown even in rabbits was given here, according to H. Kerston, rancher.

She took one look at the sorrowful sight, and then calmly laid down and died, Kerston said. able and flexible in the solutions of the changing requirements of a changing civilization." Pointing out that no real danger confronts the constitution while j the United States supreme court exists, Mitchell said. "Those who believe the constitution is in serious danger forget or ignore the fact that the court of the land in orderly fashion will decide all constitutional questions as they arise." Justice Mitchell hailed the New Deal as the stimulant which aroused the nation from the depths of despair caused by the depression, instilled a new hope into the people and is leading them to a new SAVE HALF THRU FREE TEXT GIFTS (Continued ir»;;: F;-so Onf I indication of the interest students have taken in that work.

"In a. few months," he said, "the New Deal has routed despair, restored confidence and let hope live again in the hearts of men." "The herculean task faced by the president as he assumed the responsibility of saving the nation from ruin, was one that could easily have discouraged a man who did not possess the optimism, enthusiasm and courage of Franklin Roosevelt," Judge Mitchell said. The keynoter also paid high tribute to Gov. Clyde L. Herring, declaring it was fortunate that Iowa should choose such an able business man as its chief executive at such a critical moment in the affairs of state. Iowa democrats assembled on Thursday to nominate four candidates for justice of the state supreme court. A half dozen names were under discussion, but it was believed the field would be narrowed down in pre-convention discussion so that there would be little delay in the session. Following the convention the democratic state central committee was to meet to chart democracy's course thru the autumn political campaign. Party headquarters have been permanently established in a hotel here so the committee is virtually ready to start its campaign at this time. New York Stocks Close Today Youth Pleads Not Guilty to Death Charge NORMAN, Olila., <U.B> -- A pale haggard youth sat in his jail cell here Thursday, at the end of a frantic flight from disgrace.

Wednesday afternoon he pleaded not guilty to charges of murdering his campus sweetheart, beautiful Marian Mills, in an effort to prevent impending motherhood. » >* Three- weeks i-.go Myers and the girl, chosen beauty queen of the school of engineering, sought permission to stay overnight at the home of Mrs. Hazel Brown, fraternity ho ise cook. They were distraught. Myers introduced the girl as his wife, confided to Mrs. Brown she was expected a baby. They wanted to stay there while Miss Mills took some medicine in an effort to thwart motherhood. Mrs. Brown consented. Miss Mills collapsed. Myers, panic stricken, called a. doctor, then fled. His sweetheart, was dead when medical aid arrived. "I've committed no crime. But I couldn't stand the d!s£ra,ce," sobbed Myers when he returned at his father's insistence to stand trial. "I don't know wheer I was running to." His frantic flight led him to the Mexican border, back thru Texas, Oklahoma and to Colorado, from where he voluntarily returned. ragged and dirty. He will remain in Jail until his trial in September.

C. E.

He admitted, however, that many commission men, hardest hit of all trading units affected by the strike, will attempt to resume business with their own livestock handlers if a truce is not immediately reached. Em- ployes of the commission firms and of the stockyards Belong .to different, but affiliated, unions. The commission bouse employes are not on strike. Union leaders pointed out that violence which shook the huge stockyards during a strike last winter has been avoided in this walkout because shippers have been requested to send their cattle elsewhere.
