Warden Herbtrt Smith, who wa» injured by a prisoner, led the reinforced squad of peace officers in tie three-hour fight to subdue the 1,200 convicts in smoke-filled, flame-swept tiers.' A half-dozen of the 1,603 prisoners amonr wiom are 183 serving ttf% tenner ant several guards required treatment at the prison infirmary -for cuts and bruises, A dozen firemen were overcome by dense smoke from burning mattresses. Warden Smith was struck on the .side ol the face with an Improvised club in the hands of a prisoner. With a surgical dressing covering th« wound, he directed the ^activities of officers.Smith blamed crowding and shortage of guards. "This trouble has been going on for some time thruout the prison," he said, "due to the antiquated building and lac" of space and, shortage of guards. We have three and four men in every cell that ordinarily should have only two. We have only one guard for every 28 • prisoners." An escape attempt about 10 days ago was quietly but speedily foiled. At mess Tuesday night vindictive utterance passed beyond the whisper stage. Warden Smith i.ros« and made a brief, pointed speech.- "Behave yourselves," he told the prisoners. A roar went up. "Lock them in," the warden ordered; and the men moved to file out, meals unfinished: The 60 guards were compelled to work fast. Convicts stealthily slipped knives inside blouses. Those knives were to imperil firemen later, because as the city's forces fought the blazes in 25 Separate places, criminals" lunged at them with steel from behind bars The noise grew apace, but the prisoners were speedily locked in their cells. A few minutes later the burning mattresses were thrown into the corridors; 150 Rescued After Ships Collide In River at N. York POUGHKEEPSIE, N. Y.

Isn't $1,000 in Extra Income Worth an Effort? There are not many business men either In Ames or in another town of Story county who will make $1,&00 in net earnings during the next three months. Neither an average man, nor a man above average, ordinarily expects to pick up $1,000 in such a short time on something that is an avocation or a side line. The Ames Daily Tribune-Times, however, is offering just that to some man or woman who thinks that $1,000 is big enough to justify his or her efforts to earn it This will be a big fat Christmas present someone will receive in return for tfeeir services- in the stupendous circulation campaign the Tribune-Times has launched this week. ' A total of $6,500 in DAILY CASH INCOME and CAPITAL PRIZES has been offered by the Tribune-Times for the services of a large number of local people, both in Ames and elsvWhere in Story county, in this campaign to increase the list of regular daily readers of this newsnaper. Capital Prizes Some person will receive the $1,000 prizes; others will receive the second award of $700, the third award of $500; the fourth award of another $500; two district awards of $150 each, and two other district awards of $100 each, And in addition, the other contestants in the campaign will receive DAILY CASH COMMISSIONS for their work, their commissions representing exactly the amount of work they do in this drive. There is no person, except em- ployes of this newspaper, who is not eligible- to enter , this campaign. There is nothing In* tlfe" class or kind of service to be performed which should keep any person from trying for one of the prizes, or from earning a daily Income. No Social Obstacle The campaign manager has in r terviewed some who were afraid the work; would cast some reflection upon their social standing in the community. This Is a false illusion that undoubtedly has prevented these same persons many times before from taking advantage of practical opportunities for adding to their Incomes. Tie Tribune-Times is glad that there are not many persons, particularly in these times of economic distress, who harbor any feeling that taking part in a campaign «ueh Jis this, sj»nso*ed by a highly reputable business concern of long standing in th'e community, doing work that is clean, wholesoine , and enjoyable, is beneath ' ; 2L Social ;3uty " ', v *f Working In ^a legitimate;: /activity, receiving pay f^r actual serv- (Continued on Page Four) Republicans Win , Assembly Seat in Clay County Bote SPENCER OJ.E) — Republicans Wednesday gleaned a. ray of hope for next year's state election from the action of Clay county voters returning to the republican fold. Clay county, normally republican, deserted the G. 0. P. last fall and went democratic. Tuesday, in a special. election to select a successor to Frank Wenig in the state general assembly, A. H. Avery, re- publica. , was elected by substantial majority. The election preceded the vital ballot next Tuesday in Benton-Tama district to select a state senator who will wield the balance of power in the special session. Should the district follow Clay county's precedent, republicans will control the senate in the special session which will start in six weeks. Avery defeated Mrs. Ella Morgan, democrat, by 230 votes. !• i Labor Preparing to Ask NRA to Establish More Safeguards for Workers; President Green Renews Campaign for 30-hr, Work Week By H. O. THOMPSON United PreM Staff Correspondent (Copyright, 1933, by United Press) WASHINGTON (U.R)—The American Federation of Labor, meeting next week in the most important convention in its history, will demand that the national recovery administration create further eaf3- guards for organized labor. It was learned Wednesday that a laudatory report on the NRA bad been toned down and specific criticism included. The executive council of the A. F. of L., feels that the NRA: 1. Has not put sufficient men back to work. 2.- Haa resulted in a break-down of wage differentials between skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled workers. 3. Has resulted in organizing employers effectively while leaving labor to shift for itself. v NRA officials realize that criticism of the NRA is bound to gain increasing attention. The Intensive "blue eagle" campaign thruout the country sented to bold this in check for a time. Whether the A. F. of L. action will start criticism from all who are opposed to the program Is conjectural. Maay business men who are honestly of the belief that the recovery program has failed to pursue the wisest policies may become articulate once, the'ice is broken. While some of the Roosevelt administration feel that a general attack on the recovery program would-be harmful, others feel that there would be a healthy effect from discussing things in the open rather than in an atmosphere of polite camouflage. The faults found by the A. F. of L., council are with specific developments of the NRA and not in any sense witt the program as a whole. There is a feeling among federation officials' that the NRA has compromised too. readily on snme controversial questions and that the result has been to lessen the effect of a concerted re-employment drive. One objection, raised frequently by President William Green is that maximum hours of work have been put too high. The federation alms at a 30-hour week.

Social Service League Obtains Hospital Care for 100 This Year 11 Seek Aid During September Seventy persons in Story county were given free hospital care during the first ; eight and a half months of 1933. thru the medium of the Story County Social Service league/according to Miss .Helen M. Crawford, executive secretary. In addition to the 70 cases hospitalized this year, 30 additional patients have been certified for iospitalization at Iowa City by the league and are on the waiting list for admittance to tiat institution. Seven Story • county tubercular cases are receiving county care, at Oakdale and Sunnycrest state,sanitariums, and 39 cases of mental disturbances have been sent from this county to state hospitals, for treatment, since January 1. The league performed the administrative services in connection with '2 of the mental cases and all of the tubercular cases. During the first three weeks of September, there were 11 applications for hospital care received. Only three of these were still pending this week, while the rest have been given attention. Of the 11 cases, one was referred to private care, or in other words service thru the league was refused. Three were given medical attention locally at county expense, because of the emergency character of the cases, and five were admitted to the University hospital at Iowa City. Emergency Cases Emergency cases handled by the league this month included a case of appendicitis at Gilbert, in which an emergency operation was performed, and a diphtheria case near Ames. •* Do You Know Theater History?

(ConUauoa on P.igo Three) Members of the medical profession in_:Story county have voluntarily cooperated thru the Stor^ County Medical,.society, and have contributed to the public health program of the county, first, by discounting fees for social service patients, and second, by matching hospital bills with actual cancellation of their own fees, Miss Crawford stated. Patients come .on. their own'ini- tiative to the social service office when they feel they cannot afford •private care. Such cases almost entirely are for expensive treatment, or for medical care which will continue over-a period of time. Many (Continued on Page Three) DBS MOINES OID—The Iowa supreme : - court Wednesday affirmed-a decision of the Clinton county district court in seating Justice George Claussen of Clinton, republican on the Iowa supreme court bench. The decision was written by Justice Truman Stevens, Justices Richard .Mitchall and John Kintzinger failed to concur. Other members of the court agreed with Stevens' dicision. Claussen did not participate since the case concerned himself. "Rie decision ended a protracted legal battle between Justice Claussen and Justice Hubert Utterback, democrat, Des Moines, who -was elected last November to the supreme court position held by Claussen. Claussen was appointed to the supreme bench Oct. 15. 1932 by former Governor Dan W. Turner following the death of E. A. Morling, of Emmetsburg. Claussen's term was to expire in 1935. The basis of the decision hinged on the time of Claussen's appointment. The law stipulates that if a vacancy occurs 30 days prior to an election, it will be filled at the general election but Justice Morling died less than SO days before the election. The supreme court ruled that it was its duty to "interpret, not to improve on" the state's statutes and therefore no vacancy existed which could be filled at the election November 8, 1932, said vacancy having been created less than 30 days before the election.

STALK IN ME OF HURRICANE Thousands Homeless in Tampico; Wide Area Flooded TAMPICO, Mexico, ttLE)—Hun- ger and disease threatened stricken Tampico as relief work was organized *nd search' continued for bodies of hurricane victims. Water and light .services were suspended. Food and medical supplies for the hundreds of ill and injured were urgently needed. The waters of the Panuco* river swept to the sea, seven miles away over what had been the poorer section of the thriving city. Portions of the residential section still were under from six to ten feet of water. Death List at 80 Authorities feared many bodies •were in ruined homes. The present death list stoo'Syat 80, but further up the Panuco and the near : by Tamesi river it was feared more victims would be added. The. government at > Mexico^ City: 'preparecTto send relief "at once In response to appeals from General Anselrao Macias, army zone com' mander. American Consul Carey ascertained that none of the 1,000 Americans in the Tampico area, Mexico's chief northern port and outlet for four great oil'fields, were injured or killed. There was much damage to American property, and • the American Ward line steamship Panuco was blown aground. Tho fortunately the known death list Indicated total casualties well below those reported unofficially, it was apparent that the material damage, at least, was not exaggerated. This correspondent came to Tanjpico from Mexico City by airplane, ; Rivers Cover Land As .the plane roared toward the sea over the basins of the Panuco and Tamesi rivers, ,-the waters spread over the land, for miles so that their normal 'courses were not : determinate. The rivers con- tmue'd to rise, '" threatening additional property damage. In the swirling waters as the plane approached the ruined city many houses were floating. The poorer residential district of Tampico was entirely inundated. Death and misery made the scene appalling. Poor persons living in the western section 6f the town, only two or three feet above the river banks, died in groups, unable-to escape. All wind recording instruments were broken when the wind reached 120 miles an hour. Wednesday public buildings left standing and fit for habitation were filled with ill and wounded. Approximately 10,000 of the city's 74,000 population were homeless. The small military force here organized the relief work, under every possible disadvantage.

Five other fugitives were believed hiding near Wanatab, Ind., following seizure of a farmer and a mailman. The tenth convict was unreported. Hundreds of state police and deputy sheriffs deployed over the wootied section near Chesterton ready to close in. The fugitives, all long-term criminals and armed, were reported to have fled to the cover of the woods under darkness after an automobile which they had commandeered broke dov,-n. Split in Groups Escaping from the old penitentiary after a bold break that started in the shirt factory, the prisoners split into three groups. The one; believed surrounded at Chesterton kidnaped Sheriff Neal, who was bringing a prisoner to the institution, and sped away in his automobile. * After abandoning the sheriff's car they' kidnaped Cecil Spanier, a farmer, and continued their flight in hffe automobile. Spanier later was released. ' The convicts were heading sojithwest when Spanier's car became disabled. 'The second group of five ran down the broad sidewalk leading from the prison waving their revolvers and shouting madly. They leaped into the car of Herbert Van Valkenberg, of Oswego, 111. The tenth man fled by himself. Clerk Is Shot The escape, one of the most daring in Indiana history, left an aged prison employe critically wounded, and two others slugged. Finley Carson, 72, a clerk, was shot twice by the convicts. His recovery was doubtful. Jesse Andrew. Lafayette, Ind., chairman of the state prison board of trustees, was due here Wednesday to open an investigation. State police barracks at Tremont reported that nearly a thousand farmers and vigilante groups, originally organized to fight bank robbers, were searching the area armed with squirrel rifles and shotguns. The territory surrounding the woods where the first group was believed hiding, and near the region where the second group was last seen, is relatively wild and uninhabited.
