Secretary Ickes of the interior department said today he would ask the president to give recognition "In some signal way" to the "notable deeds" of Senator John B.

"Senator Kendrick's death Is a great loss to this department," the secretary said, "and to the principles of orderly development of the west, for which he labored for several years, both in the senate and "As a friend of Irrigation and of the development of the grazing lands on the, public domain, Sena tor Kendrick's passing wui mean a loss that cannot be repiacea.

Mokler. local postmaster, and president of the Wyoming Postmasters association, yesterday forwarded a message of condolence which contained praise for the work of the late senator, to the widow and family of John J. Kendrick, on behalf of the postmasters of the state. "May I extend the heartfelt sympathies of the members of the Wyoming Postmasters association to you ahd yours in the passing of our beloved friend and supporter," the message read. "He has worked tirelessly and unceasingly for the betterment of his state and fellow-men" STORAGE 24-Hour Scrvic Bt of Care HARRY'S GARAGE lt and Park Phone 2202 (By The Associated Presa.) , President Roosevelt refused to adopt the scheme of licensing farmers and fixing farm commodity prices commended to him yesterday by the governor of five middle western states. The executives expressed disappointment, and Governor Olson of Minnesota, spokesman, prophesied an immediate spread of the farm strike. Tills prophecy was echoed by Milo Reno, president of ths National Farmers Holiday association, who telegraphed 21 state leaders of the organization to "throw the strike into full gear." The governors of Minnesota, Wis consin. Iowa. South Dakota and North Dakota had asked the presi dent to fix prices of beef cattle, hogs. corn, wheat, milk and butter fat at parity within 30 days and de- t:rmine quotas for each farmer lim iting the amount of such commodities he might produce and sell. The president in reply held that such a program might be desired by the five states represented, but was unacceptable to most farmers, and that the government would be forced to spend large sums to support the fixed prices. The president pledged "every possible effort" to increase prices without such compulsion as the governors suggested. The truee that interrupted the farm strike in Wisconsin several days ago was terminated by the Holiday association, whose members were urged to resume withholding products from market but to main tain law and order. I! NOT CULL FOR ELECTION BERLIN, Nov. A bitter denunciation of communists as "murderers' and "beasts" was made at the reichstag arson, trial today by Hermann Wilhelf Goering, Prussian premier and national minister without portfolio. "Murder is communism's first commandment,'' the dapper minister asserted. "Sadism has its home In the communist party, and cruelties are nowhere so bestial as when the communists are in a position to tor ture people." His charges aroused the ire of Georgl Dimltroff, one of the five al leged communists accused of firing the parliament last Feb. 27. Dimlt roff asserted German police did nothing to trace possible perpetra tors other than men they thought were accomplices of Marin us Van der Lubbe. who confessed setting the blaze. "I order you not to put such inso lent questions," Goering shouted at the Bulgarian Dimltroff. "You are a scoundrel who ought 'long ago to have been at the gallows for firing the reichstag. "You hfrve reason enough to be afraid when you leave the custody of this court." Presiding Judge Wilhelm Buenger ordered two policemen to eject Dimltroff from the room. Yesterday he was sent out for three days "for insulting remarks." He is his own counsel, and today cross examined the star witness. "In his personality he eummed up all his Interesting and picturesque cast, that of a cowboy, rancher cat tleman and statesman. He was so strong that he could afford to be what he was. gentle, considerate and humane." Appointed by tae sergeants-at-arms cf the senate and house, senators Carey of Wyoming, and Rob inson of Arkansas, and Represcnta tives Carter, Wyoming and Lea of California, will comprise a congres sional committee to attend the funeral at Sheridan.

"In other words, it is assumed In some quarters that the governor may decide that there la no reason why he should call a special election within 60 or 90 days, for Instance. 'Therefore, if he fails to do so before congress assembles in Janu ary, then he could make an appointment of a successor to Senator Kendrick who could serve until after the next regular election when the vacancy would be filled by a vote of the people. The Tribune-Leader continued that "the guessers have already picked Joseph C. 0Mahoney. firsc assistant postmaster general as the appointee. There are others who be lieve that Paul Greever (Cody political figure) would be selected if Governor Miller makes an appointment instead of calling a special election." In other quarters today the name of John D. Clark, Cheyenne economist and staunch Democrat who has been considered a likely choice for ambassador to Russia, was mentioned as a llhcly choice If a senatorial appointment is made. I. II.

REPRESENTATIVES OF STATE NAMED CHEYENNE. Wyo.. Nov. 4.UP) Life in the Wyoming state capital was shadowed by a deep sense of loss today In the death of Senator John B. Kendrick. Old timers who knew him in the early days talked sadly to younger men of the life and works of the senator-cattleman. His constituents regardless of party affiliation, spoke with high regard for hla abilities, But more than that were there continued expressions of admiration for John B. Kendrick, the gentleman. "He was the greatest of the old timers," said one grizzled cattleman who sat, disconsolate, in the cor ridor at the state house. "He told me he did not want to die in the harness, that he wanted to get his work done and retire. But he did n't get that wish." Governor Leslie A. Miller, his grief plainly written In his face, hastened to complete arrangements for state honors which Wyoming will accord the late senator. The governor had been closelv associated with Senator Kendrick. both politically and personally, for years. He was the senator's private secretary when he first went to Washington. All state officers and pleaders of both political parties were closeted with the governor in a conference late in the morning at which details of the state's tribute were worked out. .

IS DEALT BLOI (Cnptinard !'"' m Purr declared In a statement that warn the workers that munic:; i ownership of public utilities is illusion and no solution of the.r problem. Removal of the utility assessment from the tax rolls was another factor, as it was at Sheridan, where the people followed the lead of the late Senator Kendrick in vetoing the proposition by a:i overwhelming majority. He advised his public to vote ;t down, because municipal ownership would destroy a stable business employing men, because it involve! the risks and hazards of an economic burden, and because Sheri-,dan is adequately served at rat?s that can not be considered exorbitant. Holding out the hope that the u:y may eventually be served by a-.c Casper-Alcova project plant, he u-clared that "in such an event ih3 purchase of a plant by the city, together with the large obligation assumed, would prove to be a monumental error because the purchase would involve the added risk or abandoning the system after it h;id besn taken over at enormous can " The Sheridan Vote would indica that his advice carried great weight, another tribute to the respect and confidence in which he was held by the people of his hon-.e town.
