Trieru, 35, Mason City, arrested Wednesday on a charge of embezzlement, was dismissed Thursday by M. C. Cough- Ion, justice of the peace. It was claimed by W. M. Huffman that certain accounts which Triem owed Huffman and the insurance company had not been paid, although they had been collected. Triem, who worked for Mr. Huffman from Jan. 14 until Dec. 23, 1933, claimed that he worked in partnership arrangement with Edward Logan. Triem said that he had paid on open account more than enough to make up the difference of the accounts and claimed that he would pay what was owed but that Huffman was attempting to get a sentence pronounced on him so he could not sell insurance in Iowa.

Fire Mason City 1933 Loss Below That of 1932 Is One of Iowa Communities Cited by Fire Marshal for Establishing New Record. Mason City is one of the 11 cities out of 18 larger cities of Iwa selected by John W. Strohm, state fire marshal, that showed a reduction in the 1933 fire loss below that of 1932. Other cities that showed reductions were Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Clinton, Dubuque, Fort Dodge, Iowa City, Marshalltown, Ottumwa, Sioux City and Waterloo. CENIORS in the law school at Vandel-bill university, Nashville, Tenn.. decreed that their classmates should wear bat-wing collars, but they graciously exccptcci Miss Julia Reese, also a class member, and told her that she needn't alter her feminine attire to conform to the custom. But the young Portia had her own ideas OH the matter, and appeared on the campus fully claci in mannish attire, from stiff collar to cuff links. "I have to wear stockings, though," she remarked, "because I couldn't find any men's socks small enough to fit." Miss Reese is a licenced, attorney in her home state of Georgia, where she passed the bar examination. She also is one of the leading candidates for the founder's medal at the college, which is presented each year to the law senior who has the highest average.

Nebr., where it had resided APPROVE CROP LOAN EXTENSION 35 Million Would Be Used, According to Plans of House Group. WASHINGTON, Feb. i. (.T*--A bill to extend crop production loans to 1934 to a total of 535,000,000 was approved today by the house agriculture committee. \ The committee after receiving facts and figures from farm credit administration officials, raised the allotment in executive session from 530,000,000 to 535,000.000 and the individual limit from 5200 to ?250. Agricultural officials were understood to favor the extension of the loans so long as it was made 'clear there was no conflict with the crop limitation program now under way. for 10 years before being disturbed by Felix Duedes, also Mexican, The latter bonibre ran away with the wife and five children of Senor Cabellerro recently and came to Mason City, where he succeeded in getting a house at 726 Harrison avenue southwest and also relief: from the county. One of the children was enrolled in school under the name Duenes and everything was going easily for Duenes when Senor Cabellero suddenly showed up. He had trailed the i family to Mason City and asked police to help him. Funds were obtained from the county and the family was sent back to North Platte with its rightful father. Senor Duenes is still in Mason City trying to dispose of a 192G car to get enough money to leave "Iowa has shown a reduction of about 44 per cent in its fire loss in the short space of two years," said the state fire marshal in making his report to Gov. Clyde Herring. "Furthermore, Iowa fire chiefs and fire prevention leaders are additionally gratified over the fact that the 1933 loss record is nearly $2,000,000 less than any report for the last 10 years." Kecords Maintained. The records maintained by the national board of fire underwriters is made up data collected from their committee on statistics, the bureaus and the fire departments themselves for the period covered by the yearly rather than the au- iiual report, Slason City's fire loss for 1933 was $28,848.72, according to the yearly report of the local fire department submitted by Daniel H. Shire, chief of the department, to City Manager 13. H. Crofoot. The loss for the previous year, 1932, was $45,939.48. "The low fire loss for the year 1933 can be credited to the salvage operations performed by the department," said Chief Shire In commenting on the report. "This service should be expanded to a salvage company manned by a lieutenant and one salvageman with a piece of apparatus for salvage and first aid emergency work, vitli at least 50 covers. Such equip- nent is now carried by the com- lination company. Equipment of his sort will more than pay for its speration cost." To Save Property. Inspections by fire departments ·fficers and firemen in the past lave been from the standpoint of Ire prevention. In some departments control and extinguishment vere added but no thought was given to the problem of saving property or reducing water at fires. On Jan. 2, 1933, according to he report, orders were issued for a ialvage inspection to be made so hat officers and firemen would lave a knowledge of the condition. 1 n all buildings in the business dis- rict.

Fire knowledge gained from the fireman's school at Iowa State col lege at Ames has aided greatly. ! "This together with fire prevention and what salvage operation? e are able to carry out has en- bled the cl.^artment to do what has," said Chief Shire. Hazards Exist. According to the report the de- artment realizes the conflagration azards that exist in the business nd mercantile districts and knows le construction of buildings in this rea, which is bad due to low para- et walls, exposures, unprotected oor openings, etc., and knows nat. if a fire once gets headway it ·ill cause a serious fire for it can- ot be confined to the building of .s origin. Water is the controling factor in fro fighting and there are large reas In the city in which no fire 'ghting streams can be brought to ear, continues the report.-Here the re department is confronted with ae same problem as in the business nd mercantile districts where fire lydrants and water mains are ivailable, the need of pumpers. The practice of raising water vorks and main pressures was dis- ontlnued years ago in this city ind its practice should be discour iged and not resorted to any great extent due to the danger which at ends it and the possible failure of he distribution system due to raifing- pressure for fire fighting according to the report.

A review of thi losses, fires and alarms from thi year 1920 is also given and other in formation is shown, together with :he chief's recommendation for the future improvement and increased efficiency of the department. Recommendations Mndc. The following recommendations were made for the purposes of increasing the efficiency of the fire department and to enable it to meet conditions with which it is faced. 1. That an additional engine company of not less than one officer and three men on each shift be add- od to thp department. The p u m p e r should not be of less than 1,000 alien capacity, with not less than 23 per cent reserve, and should be equipped with a water lank of not ens than 100 gallons and hose body with a capacity of not less than COO "ect of .3 Inch and 800 feet of 2y- nch double jacket fire hose am other standard equipment. 2. That a salvage company, composed at the start of one officer and one salvagcmim on each shift, he or- janized and placed in .service with a I'/i or 2 ton six cylinder car equip Qd to carry not less than 40 sal- i-age covers and all the salvage equipment now carried on the com bination and that a total of GO sal vage covers be purchased. 3. That all small two-way fin hydrants in the business and nier canile districts be replaced with two-way and steamer fire hydrantf of not less than 600 gallon capacltj a minute, 4. The purchase of not less than 1,000 feet each of 3 and 2',!. incl double jacket underwriters labele fire hose. 5. The construction of a drill lo\\ or and training grounds on the c i t j property in the rear of the fire sla tion so that all fire operation.s am schooling cnn be handled there a there is no place to train member of the department now. 6. The construction of anolhe hose drying tower and the rcpairin of the present one and the turnin over to the fire department tha part of the building that io no\ being used by the police dcpartmen so that there will be room for hnn dling, storage, denning ami drying of fire department c n r i n m e n f . 7. The drafting- and adoption of a complete set of fire prevention ordinances and the requirement of all bulk oil storages to dike so that in case of fire the hazard can be localized. Urges Adoption. All of these recommendations except the third Chief Shire considers should be u1optcd as soon as possible. In reviewing the serious fires in this city from 1920 to and including 1927, the report concludes, they were due to under-manned, and under-equipped fire departments, which lacked knowledge of the structural conditions of the buildings on fire and correct knowledge of fire operations. From 1!)29 to the present time, the department has liivd all tho breaks of good alarms and no fire Scores Unfortunate Publicity of "Radio Priest" in Detroit WASHINGTON. Feb. 1. (,-PJ---Kd- ·ard D.

"The conditions arc such that we require fire streams with a vertical and horizontal reach of TOO feel and nozzle pressures of 90 and 100 pounds a square inch. This cannot be done from hydrant pressures or from the capacities of the pump- ers we now have in service. The department can supply one ly, inch nozzle stream but no larger and only one of these. "The improvements being made in the water system will greatly improve it and make available water in the business district for fire fighting at suitable pressures for fire department pumpers, but we will not be able to take advantage of this water due to the lack of pump capacity to meet the need of effective fire streams. "The trouble T find in our city when fire streams arc spoken of is th.it volume and pressure are not understood by those who think they know fire department requirements.
