EGGERS CHARGED AS HOLDUP ACCOMPLICE (Continued irom Pas* '-> ufe > plained, the county attorney re- veal'd, was Eggers' declaration that he did not know the names ot at least six men with whom he had held more or less lengthy conversations within two days prior to the holdup. H2 also has hern re- ticznt about disclosing the topics of these conversations. On A Country Road The county attorney also said that Eggers'had been seen on a country road near Roland talking with two men in a Chevrolet coupe which resembled the one m which two bandits who entered the bank escaped. Eggers has admitted this conversation, Mr. Hougen said, but doesn't know who the men were, and did not tell what they were talking about. Eggers' presence in the bank building is clossly linked with events "that took place at the time of the holdup. According to the information Mr. Hougen has obtained what happened occurred in about the following manner: Eggers, who has been selling insurance during the past summer and living in Nevada, called on Miss Beverie Parker; the Roland bank, to talk with her about insurance. She was at that momeat talking with Miss Alice Erickson. daughter of the bank president and also employed in the b.ank as a clerk. "V. Near During Holdup 'Eggers appeared to be in somewhat of a hurry, made a remark about finding Miss Parker busy, and left.

By Williams Hot Air Hovers Over Wide Area In Middle West DES MOINES, d'.Pi— Mounting heat again poured into Iowa Tuesday pushing temperatures above the 100 mark with the expectation of a recurrence of the. heat wave which last month took a toll of more than SO lives and I millions of dollars property dam age Light showers may tall Tuesday night in extreme southern Iowa where the federal nnd state governments are reuruiting forces to fisht against the worst drouth that Special Tester Train Clears Way for President's Special | has ever blighted crops in the southern third of the state. Federal Weatherman Charles D. Reed expected no relief immediate- h. Temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday were expected to equal the 108 degrees registered Monday at Albia. The third death of the new hent was recorded when Mrs. Nancy Thomas, 85, died at Audubon. " There were light showers Monday scattered over the state. Army worms were reported in large numbers in parts of Grundy and Fayette counties. Ray Murray, secretary of agriculture, said there was a possibility the outbreak might become serious. An ocean of hot stagnant air two miles deep and extending from New Mexico to Iowa hovered like a pall over the southwest. The heat wave again harrassed the suffering from an unprecedented drouth which has claimed approximately 1.000 lives and caused more than one billion dollars damage to crops and stock this sum- irer. Monday the maximum temperature at Phillipsburg. Kansas, was \17.5 degrees. Trio Enter Pleas in Collins Cafe Robbery Krnest M. Russell, alias Lee Russell, Floyd Froah and Bernard Wilkinson, rounded up by Sheriff J. K. Hattery as suspects in the burglary of the H. C. Westcott cafe In Collins, a month ago, pleaded not guilty to formal charges of breaking and entering when «r- raigued before Municipal Judge J. Luke, Tuesday morning. Hearing for all three wag set for Friday at 10 a. in., and the trio was remanded to jail in default of J2.500 bonds. Froah and Wilkinson pleaded lack of funds and asked the court to provide counsel. Ally. Frank Lounsberry was appointed to represent them. TEUCK STRIKE TO FEDERAL COURTS (Continued from Page One.) 'his case will be presented by Col. Elmer McDevltl. judge advocate of the city under uartial law. Me- Devltt and Adjt. Gen. Ellard A. Walsh also are defendants In the employers' petition. Olson will be aboard President Roosevelt's special train, in western Minnesota, whrn the petition is heard. The blow that excited the employers to action was an order depriving the city of almost all its trucking facilities. Permits issued to 9.000 trucks by military authorlti«s w«r« revoked at midnight Sunday. Tueiday fewer than 4,000 had been r«ii c ^ns- ed. More than 15.000 trucki normally travel the city's atreets. Milk, ice and bread were delivered freely and there was no danger of a shortage of essential foodi. "Luxuries" however, were unobtainable. Among things that the guardsmen defined as luxuries were ice cream, pies, cakei, laundry and cleaning services, many drugs, »oda fountain supplies and beer and liquor. Department stores were as unable to make deliveries as th» smallest corner shop. The 6.000 striking truck driver* were obviously delighted. Picketing was stopped. Major Owntr* Diflant A long line of smaller employers stood outside national guard headquarters waiting to sign the agreement proposed by the Rev. Francis J. Haag nnd E. H. Punnljun. federal mediators, as a strike settlement. In his drastic order of Monday Olson stipulated that any employer signing the Haas-Dunnigan plan would be permitted to resume operation immediately. The plan guarantees 52% cents an hour to drivers and 42Vi cents to helpers and other connected workers, as well as free opportunity to unionize. None of the 166 major truck operators signed, however, and no end to the strike was in sight. Editor's note: When a presi-jX. D.. when F. Gavin, the!

Afternoon Scattering rain drops from heavily clouded skies gave some hope of relief in Am'es Tuesday afternoon from the hot, humid atmosphere. Temperatures rose to 94 degrees during the middle of the day, dropping back again to 92 as the rain drops spattered against the pavements and walks. Rain was falling at 2:30.

The following two years, he bandits entered the bank. "The bandits came in. unmasked, wsll dressed, apparently young men.

Store Workers Suffering From Drouth Effects DES MOINES <U.P—Extreme drouth conditions are bringing hardship to store and factory workers as well as farmers in Iowa. Frank E. Wenlg, state labor commissioner, reported Tuesday in his monthly employment survey. Industrial employment in the state decreased sharply during July MAYO BROTHERS TO BE HONORED (Continued from Puge One.) driving thru the decorated streets .0 Soldiers' Field. After his address the president will receive a 21-gun salute from national guard artillery and will be driven to Mayowood. the 3.000-acre country estate of Dr. Charles Mayo, for luncheon. Then he will go in a motorcade of 100 automobiles over 36 miles of newly refinished highways to hoard Dr. William Mayo's yacht. "North Star," at Wabasha. Two national guardsmen will be stationed at each crossroad along the route. The North Star will carry the as total weekly pay rolls and /to'new low levels, ig found. A decrease of 4.5 per | cent was recorded for the month, "with all major industries suffering except stone and clay products, which gained & per cent. "This July slump carries more weight than normal seasonal tendencies and has cut short the active season of production in many manufacturing groups, due, no doubt, to the drought," Wenig stated. Sufficient improvement has been shown over 1933, however, to indicate a slight general upswing for the year, the commissioner asserted. He described the outlook for fall business as "encouraging." The most serious drop in industrial employment was found in 'Burlington, w'.ierc 10 firms reported a decrease of 10.1 per cent, mostly amon.e women workers. Ottumwa ranked second in the minus column Rescue crews worked their way Monday night thru the debris on the one and a half mile level of the " No. 3 Derby mine of the Stonega Coal and Coke company j to recover the bodies of nine or j more coal miners, believed killed ! with eight others when an explosion shook depths of the mine early Monday. Eighty-five miners had just entered the pita for work when the dust explosion occurred- Most escaped thru a man-way. Bodies of eight were recovered shortly after the disaster which affected only, a small part of the mine. Nine others were definitely missing. Rescue operations were directed by Jne Davies of the U. S. Bureau of Mines. Ames Man Exonerated of Auto Crash Charge Walter J. Brown. Ames filling station proprietor, last week was exonerated of charges of failing to stop after an automobile accident, which were brot against him in Des Moines, according to his attorney. Arthur Buck. The case resulted from an automobile accident in Des Moines July 4. Final hearing was to take place last Wednesday, but the prosecution after talking with Brown and with witnes-es, moved for'dismissal of the case before it reached a, hearing. soared to 9S de- alternoon as the breeze died out.

The president spoke to at least 10,000 persons who rode and trudged for miles over the dusty countryside to hear him. During his inspection tour the thermometer registered 112 in the shade. It was the hottest day he had experienced since leaving Washington, in spite of the fact that three-fourths of his six-week trip was made in the tropics.
