That was the prevailing passion that surged thru a crowd of 4,000 Iowa State college students and townspeople as they gave vent to generous outbursts of enthusiasm, Friday night. It was one of the biggest celebrations staged here in at least a decade; It brot out one of the largest crowds that ever lined Main street The celebradon "had been planned for three weeks. A committee of Ames merchants united with the Cardinal Guild in reviving the old-time football spirit. The Junior Chamber of Commerce played an important part also, its members rolling up their sleeves and pitching into a generous share of the work. Students Turn Out Several hundred students gathered at the stadium at 6:30 p. m., marched thru Sheldon avenue and Lincoln way to the electric line crossing where trucks, automobiles and an old trolley car awaited them. There was the college band, and the yells and hilarity of the crowd resounded for blocks. The whole aggregatiqn eml>ark- ed for the journey downtown unloading at Clark avenue on Main street for the march thru the downtown business district, headed by the Ames municipal band. Bombs and rockets were fired as the parade moved forward. Thousands of Ames residents lined the street, snouting with the students. On to the -.ity park moved the demonstration, and Arizona's New Congresswoman there halted for a program under bright • flares and chains of ^colored lights from a platform erected in East Fifth street ••• •. - • • ' '"• . ,.*.

The key had been fashioned especially for the occasion by W. L. "Bill" Allan, designer and maker of frat paddles. Bill Drake, cheer leader, and his ' aides pepped up the crowd with more yells' for Iowa State, and the ever recurring shout of "Beat Nebraska." The men's glee club sang, the band played. Judge J. Y. Luke, master of ceremonies, spoke v So did Zac Dunlap. Bruce J. "Bugs" Firkins, former Cyclone gridder and now on the. staff of the farm crops and soils department, introduced each of the present squad amid yells and shouts of approbation for each. Harold Templeton, former Cyclone end, talked. He was the idol of the crowd, A bit of horse play at the start of the pep program at the stand didn't turn out altogether as expected. Someone fired a pistol, and a yell leader fell from his perch on a box into the hands of bystanders, whereupon a "shot" of "Doc Veenker's Pep" was injected to revive the "wounded" man. The gun was fired; the yell leader did his plunge. Mayor Schleiter caught one foot in the stomach, and Judge Luke stopped the other on the high part of his forehead. The mayor was none the worse for wear Saturday, but the court carried a distinct black and blue mark where he had no means of hiding it. Hot Dogs and Coffee The program completed, the aggregation moved back again to Clark avenue, reloaded for the return journey, and came straggling hack to the campus where hot dogs and steaming coffee awaited them. Under direction of E. C. Melburg and Lou Amme, 4,500 hot dogs,.3,000 buns, 95 gallons of coffee, five gallons of chili relish and much mustard were put out in rapid order. The crowd jammed thru four lanes past the tables •where crews drawn largely from (Continued on Page Two) Cops, Aided by Mounted Students Handle Crowd During Pep Parade Splendid handling of traffic during the Iowa State college football pep celebration of Friday night went a long way toward insuring the success of the event Police Chief W. J. Cure was chief of the traffic squad, with all members of the department on duty. Officers were stationed at various points along the route of the. procession thru the fourth ward and downtown business districts, and moved up with the parade to new positions. - Downtown streets were blocked off, and there was no interference with the movement of the pep makers on foot thru main street from Clark avenue to the city -park. When the students arrived, the townspeople maintained a position in the park and along the side- walks, leaving he entire pavement in Fifth street around the speaking platform for the students who came in with the parade. Officials of the college and business men praised the police for their excellent work in handling the demonstration, aiding the students and fun makers to makY the journey back and forttt from the campus in safety. Chief Cure voiced his appreciation of the fine work of the mounted students from the military department, who headed/the procession downtown and helped guard street intersections during the program. There was only one mishap reported, a minor collision between two automobiles on Lincoln, .way near 'Beach avenue. IS TARGET FOR F, R. Attacks Threats World Peace to States does Canada, not or any Judging from her backward glance as she left the white house, Representative Isabella Greenway, • new congresswoman from Arizona, appears to have been a little uncertain about the outcome of her plea to the president for federal aid for Arizona. But Mrs. Greenway long has been a friend of the Roosevelts. In congress she succeeds Lewis W. Douglas, now director of the budget. High Explosive Blamed for Airplane Tragedy CHICAGO, OLE)—A bomb of high explosive wrecked the transport j science and practice of education WASHINGTON <IIE>—President Roosevelt assailed "imperialistic desires for expansion and domination" as threatening the peace of the world in a nation-wide address Friday night. The United States has no such desires, he said. His speech was transmitted to the woolen's conference on current problems in New York. "The United seek to annex part thereof, to annex Mexico or any part thereof, or to annex Cuba or any part thereof," Mr. Roosevelt declared. "The very great majority of the inhabitants of the world feel the same as we do about territorial expansion or getting rich or powerful at the expense of their neighbors. "It is only in the case of such pS^e in the world as still have imperialistic desires for expansion and domination in their minds or in their hearts that threats to world peace lie." Turning from this theme, the president urged the restoration cation." "The depression serious mark not has left its only on the plane that plunged seven persons to death near Chesterton, Ind., Tuesday night, reports of two official investigations said Saturday. Explosion of something in the baggage compartment, either" by design or by accident, wrecked the plane in midair an dsent it rocketing to earth, department of justice and United Air Lines reports stated. Previously Carl Davis, Indiana coroner who conducted an inquest, and experienced airplane pilots' who viewed the wreckage, had expressed the opinion the huge air liner was "bombed." Witnesses at the inquest testified a nexplosion in midair preceded the crash. The tail of the twin- motored ship was torn^off by the explosion and flung to earth a mile from where the plane crashed.

Directors of the Continental Hl- inoisj Bank and Trust company, the largest bank west of New Yorky voted to sell $50,000,000 of preferred stock, to the Reconstruction Finance corporation, James R. Leav- .ell, president, announced. Sale of the stock to the RFC will strengthen the capital structure of the bank, make its assets more liquid and thus place it in a position to make loans that will start the wheels of industry turning and return many of the millions now unemployed to work. Leavell said. The directors at the same time voted to recommend to stockholders a reduction of the common stock from $75,000,000 to $25,000,000. The reduction could be accomplished thru writing off $50,000,000 in doubtful or slow assets, most of which undoubtedly would be recovered later, as a result of stimulated business. Two ways are open, it was pointed out, to reduce the par value of the bank stock by one-ihird. Outstanding shares might be reduced in value from $100 to $33 1-3 per share as one share might be issued to replace each outstanding share. The stock closed Friday at $30 to $31 a share. , j Ambassador Files a Protest With Germany BERLIN •OLE) — American Ambassador William E. Dodd awaited Saturday a reply from the German foreign office to strong representations against persistent mistreatment of American citizens, men and women, by nazi storm troopers.

NRA Officials Debate Price Control Issue WASHINGTON (tlE)Recovery officials groped for some middle ground of agreement on the serious problem of price control Satu day with efforts to restore indus- t ial peace causing equal concern. The national labor board rssum- ed jurisdiction over seven strikes but delayed until next week a decision on how it will meet a test of its powers presented by the ac:ion of nine Kentucky coal operators who ignored a summons to explain charges that they discharged workers for joining the United Hine Workers. Some hitch prevented Administrator Hugh S. Johnson from carrying out his announced intention to reval what the administration jdlicy will be on price control provisions of codes over which rank- ng officials have disagreed. It was understood that the price con- rol problem was submitted to President Roosevelt after conferences between Johnson, Secretary 3f Agriculture Wallace, and Agri- ;ultural Adjustment Administrator J eek. in a strong room of the foreign office. They allege to show that Germany during the boom years expanded her -metallurgical and chemical industry to a point where manufacture of tanks, planes, firearms and artillery, and poison gas could be started on mass production basis with only overnight notice. French officials believe that pub- licatiori would affect world opinion to such degree that the German government would • be forced to pledge drastic curtailment of "sus- industrial activities iat- her STATE-IE IT IS ous camps.

(UP)—Notre FAIR LEADER Annual Kelley Event Closes Friday KELLEY — Frank Kingsbury was named president of the Kelley Fair association Friday evening at a business session which was part of the closing program of the 1933 fair.

Gaulke, superintendent of the local schodls; Frank Toll, president of the Kelley school board and the home economics instructor in the school have been made ex- officio members of the .board of directors. More than 100 farmers, merchants and business men of Anus, Kelley, Slater, Napier and Huxley aided in making the 1933 fair a financial success. The signatures of 55'farmers were secured for membership in the 1934 Kelley Farmers institute, which will assure the local group state aid. At least 40 members must be secured to receive funds from the state. The program for the closing day of the fair, Friday, included two demonstrations by H. D. Linn, field secretary of the Iowa Horse and Mule Breeders association. In the morning, he demonstrated how to properly break a colt to work and in the afternoon, he demonstrated the five and six burse hitch as used on a gang plow. In the afternoon, E. L. Quaife of the extension department, Iowa State college, discussed results of the local county swine feeding demonstration held on the Austin Skromme farm. The results of the local demonstration compared favorable with similar tests conducted in other counties, according to M". Quaife, who said that oats had not proved profitable in hog rations this year due to their high price as compared to hog prices. Tank- age, even tho high, proved profitable because it enabled the hogs to be grown more rapidly for the early fall market, he said. The Friday night program opened with a concert, by the Kelley community band under direction of C. L. Accola. The principal speaker was Carl Ring fe t?uberg, who discussed the farmers part in the NRA; He told how important it is that the NRA should succeed and pointed out to the larxci crowd of farmers present that, while they were in a difficult position now, still, along with the national industrial recovery act net. up for Industry, there 1s the agricultural adjustment act set up for Agriculture.
