Stevens, 83, judge of the eleventh Judicial district from 1887 to 1883, and fqfr half a century prominent in Ames and Boone, died in Mary Greeley hospital Monday about 3 a. m. Judge Stevens was Injured in an automobile accident about 6:30 p. m., Friday, at the Gilbert crossing on highway No. 15, six miles north of Ames. He was thrown out of the automobile driven by Dr. f. L. Rice, Ames dentist, when Dr. Rice's car was struck by a machine driven by JB. N. Baty of Chicago. Mrs. Rice, who was also taken to Mary Greeley hospital, was still there Monday, but her condition was reported to be rapidly improving. Her injuries comprised numerous bruises asd-etits with a deep cut on her head. Dr. Rice was not Injured. Judge Stevens suffered several fractured ribs. A lung conges- j tion which resulted was the cause of his death. The endj came very quietly, and it was! reported that the judge suffered but very little during the two and a half days following the accident. It is expected that funeral services will be held Wednesday, but the arrangements were not completed Monday afternoon. He will b« buried in the Ames cemetery beside his wife who died in 1918.

K. on Code For Retailers WASHINGTON (tlE)'— President Roseyelt Monday signed its re- tall code. Undtr the provisions of the code as ginned, an exemption war granted little store keepers la frailness for themselves and those employ- Ing five persons or less. Towns of 2500 or less population are exempt nnder the code except In the cases of chain stores and factories. It was reported that one of the provisions ot the code calls for sales at not less than Invoice cost. On thebasis of the 1930 census of retail distribution, exemption of all stores In towns of less than 2500 would leave almost one-third of the nation's retail stores outside of the code, to 1930, there were 1,543,000 stores of all kinds, of which 481.000 were In towns of less tban2500. AMES P, 0, JOB IS UP TO COMMITTEE Recommendation ,Due in Few Days WASHINGTON <ttB)— Th« Ames postoffice project has been turnover to a special committee five, appointed by Secretary ed of Ickes, for study as to its suitability for inclusion in the public works program, it was learned Monday at the public works administration. Th« committee is expected to make a report within the next week, probably in about five days, officials said. Upon this report will depend whether the Ames project is to get an immediate grant from the public works fund. Membership of the special committee -was not disclosed.

Death was due to a heart ailment. Doak was 51 years old, a native of Rural Retreat, Va., and the son of a confederate soldfer. Over the opposition of the American Federation of Labor, he was named secretary by President Hoover December 9, 1930, succeeding James ]. Davis. » When 18 years of age, he obtained a yardsman's Job with the Norfolk & Western railway. After joining the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen in 1903, he rose from local grievance committee chairman to national legislative representative in 19-16, a post which he held for many years. Two Horses Killed tary Ickes said Monday, and iti personnel will not be announced. Its mei&bers .have DO actual power to decide which project shatj get grants, it was explained at the public , works administration and are actually serving only in an advisory capacity. Their recommendation, however, is expected to carry great weight. Pressure upon the adminlstraT tion for more rapid relief of public works funds is growing daily and it is expected that a larger number of postoffice projects than any group previously announced -will be selected to receive grants in the near future. The original allocation for the Ames project was $157,500. This will probably be .pared down if a public works grant for the work is approved. The reduction in the case of the projects for which' the grants have already been announced has averaged between 10 and :20 perj cent. $_— by Lightning^ Boy Driver Unconscious Two horses driven by Junior Keltner i n a field on the Lew Cole farm near Ames, were killed when struck by lightning Saturday morning. Junior, 17, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Keltner of near Ames, was knocked uncon- Bcious. The bolt struck the tongue of the wagon to which the horses were hitched as Keltner was picking corn.

Hartzell on Trial for Alleged Fraud SIOUX CITY (UJR)—Oscar M. Hartzell. charged with using the NORTHWEST IOWA FAKIRS PICKET ROADS IN STRIKE Livestock" Shipments Show Sharp Drop Monday DBS MO,IJ?I5S (OE) — The national fann««yik« of the Farmers Holiday association began to show results in seveAl Iowa communities Monday as Milo Reno, president announced President Roosevelt's pledge in an address to the nation would have no effect whatever on the strike plans. While pickets guarded highways near James, In Plymouth county after a clash with deputy sheriffs, curtailed livestock shipments were reported from'Iowa towns to the important markets of Sioux City and Omaha. Reno, before entraining for Chicago early Monday to confer with railroad labor leaders for their support In the embargo movement, issued a statement In which he said: Comments On Talk "This battle will not be halted by the president's pledge of a regulated dollar and higher farm prices. We will continue to strike until our. demand for cost of production is guaranteed." President Roosevelt's assertions to the nation Sunday night "give the farmers no definite hope that there will be any concrete change In governmental policies toward agriculture which to date have been not only uneconomic but criminal and inhuman." . Iowa,-which had its own farm strike in 1932, showed the first definite indications Monday that the embargo was beginning to take hold. At James, in Plymouth county, nacre than 150 farmers threw /.railroad ties across highways Sun* day might and by the light , of 'srattify flares halted market-bound trucks. They persuaded the drivers tovtarn about ^•DepttJyiir'Retreat A carload ef-deputtefi, however; attempted to halt the picketing. After a-brief skirmish, in which clubs were swung freely, the officers retired. They said the picketing had not become general. Plymouth county was scene of the most violent outbreaks during the last year, climaxing in . the near hanging of : a district court judge on April 28, 1933. It sends its farm commodities principaHf to the Sioux City markets. Reports from Council Bluffs, across the Missouri river from Omaha, said there was a large .curtailment of cattle trucking to Omaha Sunday, and it was believed this would be reflected in receipts at-the livestock centers late^r Monday. '; ":; --' '"."• The'Holiday association wfll not frown on the picketing at James, Reno .said, hut such action is not to be encouraged in other places. . General spread of the strike, All Iowa Joins This Week in Celebration of Corn Empire Day; Corn Show and Special Bargain Event Are Planned in Ames Iowa this week will be proclaimed as the Corn Empire of the world, thru a series of. special celebrations and com shows in 26 cltie*.

A special edition of all these newspapers wfll be issued , Tuesday, heralding the supremacy of Iowa in the com industry, and carrying a series of special articles regarding corn,. its production in this state and its many uses. The Corn Empire celebration in Ames' will continue for three days, beginning Thursday. Elaborate plans have been completed for a corn show to be held in th« former Red Ball store, at 211 Main street.

Reno pointed out that lowans know, more about farm embargoes than other sections due to past experience, and therefore probably would be first to yield visible manifestations that the strike was in progress. Pledge Support Reno announced his strike movement had received pledges of support from two labor organization^ —the Continental Congress of .Workers and Farmers and the Technocrats of the World for Industrial Democracy. The latter claim 5,000,000 members. While other farm organizations refused to join in the strike, preferring to await further trial of efforts of the agricultural adjustment administration to raise farm prices, Reno predicted millions of farmers wtfuld join. Opponents of the trike believed less than 500,000 farmers would participate. / Double Vote Days Announced in Tribune-Times Expansion Drive Cash Bonus of $25 Offered as Extra Prize for Next Two Week's Work A special off er to all contestants in the Ames .Daily Tribune- Times circulation expansion campaign was announced Monday by the circulation department which will mean substantial aid toward winning the capital cash prizes and also will give the leading contestant for the next two weeks a cash bonus.

BACK AT F, D, I PLEDGES AID TO FARMER BY PLAN TO RAISE PRICES Managed Currency on! Gold Base to Be Established WASHINGTON (HE)— The strain of uncertainty regarding the government's immediate monetary plans was eased somewhat Monday by a public declaration of President Roosevelt for "a sound currency." The president, in the fourth of his "fireside" addresses to the nation Sunday night, raised the curtain on his monetary objectives, after first pledging himself to aid the farmer by raising the. price* of his products, if not in one way in another. "Government credit will be maintained," Mr. Roosevelt said, "and a sound currency will accompany a rise In the American commodity price level." He revealed another step in his monetary program for a managed 'currency Abased on .a dollar of unchanging purchasing power when he announced plans to tighten the governments grasp on gold. The effect of his plaa would be a government corner on, gold, to prevent i its export to European speculative ; centers. . ' S&ator Elmer Thomas, demo- • crat, Oklahoma, leader of congressional proponents of immediate currency inflation, accepted the pres-i idant's declaration of policy as "«,' big step in the right direction." i "I'm for it if it wo'rks," Thomas • said. "It may take a long time, if it doesn't work then apparently , he will try direct inflation." Thomas construed the president's statement to the effect that if 1 commodity prices could not be" raised in one way, they would be raised In another, as leaving the door open for inflation, in case' the managed currency and other administration plant failed to achieve the desired result. Chief of Forest Service Fatally Injured in Fall WASHINGTON <U.E>—Robert Y. Stuart, chief of the United States forest service, fell from a seventh floor window of the forest service building Monday and died while being taken to an emergency hospital. The police report listed death as due to an accidental fall. Stuart had been hard at work for months on details of the civilian conservation corps camp. Stuart, 51 years olel, had been chief of the forest service since 1928.

Green of the American Federation of Labor as 3,600,000. Mr. Roosevelt's report was based on government figures, possibly the NRA's census of the country. Green's figures were based on trade union reports. Simultaneous, the public works administration reported allotments of government funds had passed the $2,000,000,000 mark and that thousands of new jobs would be •created by the actual expenditure of this money in the near future. Green said 1,700,000. workers returned to gainful employment during the two-month period of Aug ; ust and September. He gave the September gain as 871,000 jobs, the largest for any month since the progression of the unemployment was halted. Green cautioned, however, that & work-week must be shortened to absorb additional millions. Employment for thousands is expected by government officials to result from the repeal of prohibition. Millions of dollars, it is estimated, will be put into the rehabilitation and construction. of liquor plants and into the production of materials used in the industry. .Only seven distilleries are operating at present, providing jobs for only a few hundred men. but Dr. James M. Doran, commissioner of industrial alcohol, already has received 200 applications for licenses to manufacture liquor, and he expects that at least 50 distilleries will start operation immediately upon repeal. In 1914 there were 434 distilleries, 318 wineries, and 97 breweries directly employing 72,646 workers. Other thousands were provided jobs in allied lines such as bottle making. -tuge quantities of grain were absorbed by the industry before prohibition and repeal will reopen this outlet for portions of current surpluses. In 1918, department of commerce records show, a total of 2.770,964,606 pounds of malt was used in the production of fermented liquors; 78.942,550 pounds of rice; 459,842,338 pounds of corn and corn products; 33,481.415 pounds of hops; 64.930.019 pounds of sugar, and 68,693,042 pounds of grits, wheat, bran and barley.
