Cerro Gordo Group Making State Canvass Letters Sent to All Republican Delegates Fifty-six delegates from Cerro Gordo county are preparing to attend the state republican convention which opens at the coliseum in Des Moines Friday morning at 11. These delegates are going with the instruction of the recently held county republican convention to "use every honorable means" to procure the nomination of Mrs. Helen Mitchell, Council Bluffs, for secretary of state. Not only to the delegates from Cerro Gordo county, but to the entire convention, the selection of a nominee for secretary of state will be the most important business to be considered. 8 Primary Candidates Eight candidates sought the nomination in the recent primary but none received the 35 per cent of the vote required to nominate. Two of the primary candidates have since withdrawn but another candidate has entered the race so there will be at least 7 seeking the nomination from the 3,396 delegates. Th$ successful candidate must receive at least 1,699 votes. One of those who withdrew, Russell L. Voelz, Minden, is throwing his support to Mrs. Mitchell. Joseph Miller, Des Moines, withdrew and urged support of Deputy Secretary of State Richard N. Mason,. 30, Ames. George W. Prichard, Jr., 29, * * * * ,^Off<fV!'""- ' •f'&i* * * * ••-*?• MRS.

He won the republican nomination for the Iowa house of representatives from M o n o n a county in the primary. Still in Running' Others of the original 8 candidates besides Mrs. Mitchell and Mason who still are in the running are: Jesse W. Halden, 54, Newton, former state safety education division director; State Rep. Charles J. Knickerbocker, 65, Fairfax farmer; Mrs. Earl G. Miller, 52, Des Moines antique shop operator, who led the field with 25 per cent of the vote in the primary, and M. D. Synhorst, 32, Orange City, examiner in the state auditor's office. Cerro Gordo county supporters of Mrs. Mitchell feel she has a good chance of getting the nomination, particularly it' they can get additional support in North Iowa for her candidacy. The 8th. district delegation has gone on record for .Synhorst. Benton and Monroe counties have gone to Mason. Under the plans for the convention there will be one nominating speeeh, with a 5 minute limit, for each candidate. Seconding speeches will be limited to 2. not to exceed 2 minutes each. Has Many Friends Here Mrs. Mitchell, who is a former deputy county auditor of Pottawattamie county, lived in Mason City some years ago and has many friends in this community. A number of these friends have organized the Cerro Gordo County Mitchell club, headed by Robert II. Shepard as president and Mrs. Stella Bisgrove as secretary. This club has sent a letter to each of the 3,396 convention delegates, urging support of Mrs. Mitchell. "The republican party o£ Iowa must have the strdngest possible ticket to assure victory this fall," the letter begins. "Because of this, we, a group of republican workers in Cerro Gordo county are taking the liberty of asking your support of Mrs. Helen Mitchell of Council Bluffs for secretary of state. Want Woman on Ticket "The women of Iowa should be represented on the republican state ticket. Half of the political power of our country now rests utlimately in women's hands and" the republican women of Iowa have always been active, loyal, indefatigable workers. "The selection of Helen Mitch-ell will equalize the geographical distribution of republican candidates. Mrs. Mitchell .is from the 7th district, a district devoid of candidates for full-time major office. "Helen" Mitchell is the best ualified candidate for secretary >f state. We know Helen Mitchell. he lived in Mason City for many vears before her marriage to Edwin Mitchell of Council Bluffs. She served as legislative clerk in Des Moines during 10 sessions of the legislature, becoming thoroughly familiar with state government. "Following Mr. Mitchell's death in 1937 she served 10 years as deputy county auditor in Council Bluffs. She was one of the organizers of the Iowa Council of Republican Women and has served continuously as a director of that organization ever since. She has never failed to give unstintingly of her time and effort to furthei the cause of the republican party.' His District Support Mrs. Mitchell has the support of her own 7th district and practically all of the counties in the district have indorsed her candidacy. Newspapers in the 7th district, including the Council Bluffs Non- pariel and the Glenwood Opinion- Tribune, have come out strongly in her support. "Iowa republicans will strengthen their ticket with the nomination of Helen Mitchell," said the Opinion-Tribune, in part. "She will be a vigorous campaigner in the coming election and will have a great influence on the woman vote of the state." The keynote address at the convention will be given by United Slates Sen. George A. Wilson and they will also be addressed by Gov. Robert D. Blue and Rep. William S. Beardsley, the republican nominee for governor. To Select Electors Other business which will come before the convention will be the selection of 2 presidential electors at large and the adoption of the party's state platform which will be offered by the committee on resolutions. While the convention convenes at 11 a. m. with the keynote address set for the morning session, most of the other business will be deferred until afternoon. District caucuses, however, will be held at 10 a. m. when each of the 8 districts will select a chairman and vice chairman who will have membership on the state central committee and name on district presidential elector. Three present members of the central committee will not,be candidates for re-election, they have announced. They are Willis York, Madrid, Gth district, and former state chairman; Ben A.

"How much do you think they are worth?" asked one of them. "You could probably buy the whole thing at a dime store counter," said another. Then along came Matilda Varvel, lunch counter girl. "I've seen those pieces of jewelry before," she said. A lady wore them at the Sam Woldman golden wedding party here Sunday." She called William Senesky, Woldman's son-in-law, and a few moments later Mr. and Mrs. Morris Soble of Philadelphia heard the telephone ring in their room at the Hotel Hanford. "Your jewelry is found," said a voice. "What jewelry?" Then Mrs. Soble remembered. "Why my purse," she said. "It's gone." Not until then had she missed the purse or jewelry. "Is this some kind of a game?" said Mr. Soble over the telephone. They were assured it wasn't a game and that their purse had been found at the Woolworth store. To be on the safe side Mr. Soble called the police and said the lost purse contained a fortune in jewelry, including 5 caret bluewhite diamond in a platinum setting, a platinum bracelet set with 160 diamonds, a star pin and other pieces. It was estimated they might be worth $15,000. Soon the Sobles were at the dime store and got the full story. "This is an honest town," said Mr. Soble as he handed Manager H. E. Van Essen money to be divided among the girls who had a part in recovery of the purse. Tuesday morning the Sobles were on their way back to Philadelphia.
