HAVNER PRAISES GRAFT PROBERS Says 4 Members of Graft Grand Jury Democrats and 3 Republicans. SIOUX CITY. July 5. CT)--Special Prosecutor H. M. Havner Thursday commended the members of the Woodbury county graft investigation grand jury which Wednesday indicted 23 persons. I think, in view of the importance and scope of the investgation by the grand jury of Woodbury county, that the citizens of Iowa should know something of the personnel of this grand jury," the special prosecutor said in a statement. Blade No Inquiry. "Up until after t'uey returned the Indictments yesterday, I never made inquiry of any member of the ·rand jury as to his political affiliations and outside of two mem- oers of the grand jury, up until that time, I did not know tile political affiliations of any member of the grand jury. The political affiliation of the members of this grand jury, as revealed to me today, is that four of them are democrats and three of them are republicans. "Mr. E. W. Hall, the foreman of this grand jury, is the mayor of the town of Moville, and is one of the substantial citizens of that Community. Mr. F. B. Burns of Hornick is one of the successful farmers of his community, and is a former member of the board of supervisors of Woodbury county. Mr. W. B. Chapman of Correstionville is a successful farmer of his locality. Louis Eppling of Moville is a successful German farmer of his community. Successful in Farming. 'Mr. Thomas McGuire of Danbury is a retired farmer who was cessful grain dealer and farmer of tions. Mr. Harvey Robbins of Correctionville is a retired fanner who also was successful in his operations in his chosen line of endeavor- Mr. B. M. D. Stoddard of Sloan is a successful grain dealer and farmers of that community,-and was formerly state senator from this senatorial district. "There has never been the slightest evidence in the conduct of the entire investigation that any of these men were in the slightest degree influenced by reason of their political affiliation in their consideration of matters presented to them. Throughout the entire investigation, they have shown that they realized the responsibilities which had devolved upon them as grand jurors in this particular case, and without fear or favor, and without any evidence so far as I could see of any prejudice of any kind or character they have conducted the investigation with no motive except that of arriving at what they believed to be the very right of the matter under consideration." RURAL CULTURE GROWING UPWARD Better Music, Playlet and Art Finding Favor on Iowa Farms. By PORTEil M. HEDGE Associated Press Staff Writer. A rural culture, carefully tended by the extension service and other farm organizations, is shooting new sprouts in Iowa. The old barber shop songs and cheap parodies are no longer in favor. Instead, the lilting melodies of operettas and substantial time honored songs are heard at farm organization meetings. The playlet is finding a place on farm programs. The evening checker game is being supplanted by the sketching pencil, the mould- ing clay and handicraft work. These are the opinions of extension specialists who have cultivated the flower of culture in Iowa for the last five years. 12 Types Classified. A committee of the American Country Life association has classified the popular arts in rural America into 12 types: Music, drama, folk ]ore, games, sports and folk dances, literary pursuits, home and countryside beautification, photography, handicraft, painting, sculpture and allied arts, exhibits, conservation of records and treasurers and art in work. The most popular types of art in Iowa to date-are music, artistic exhibits and art in the daily tasks of the farm. Appreciation Is Shown. The recent presentation of Balfe's opera, "The Bohemian Girl," at Ames, focused wide attention on the extent to which music appreciation is being developed in rural groups. The farmer and the farmeret presentation not only produced surprisingly capable material from the kitchens and the corn fields, but demonstrated what can be accomplished in cultural development under capable direction. Every 4-H boy may not consider the curly-haired steer he shows at county and state fairs an object of art; nor may the farm wife or the 4-H girl who exhibits six jars of canned peaches or a dainty bit of embroidery. But as objects of art they may be considered, nevertheless. Increasing competition in agricultural exhibits at agricultural shows has increased development of this type of art.

Audit Mayer's Becords. Peter G. Wilson,' accountant employed by the grand jury, continued the work of tabulating and compiling; the material seized in a raid on the home of Clyde Mayer, one of the score indicted on the 'gambling conspiracy count. Wilson was directed to make a complete audit of Mayer's records, arrange all letters in consecutive monthly order and' index them for presentation to the grand jury.

BATTLE OF BEES ENTERS 3RD DAY Mrs. Farnham Declares She Won't Be Driven From Summer Home. CHICAGO, July 5. (iB--The battle between the bees and Mrs. Ethel Farnham entered its third day today. Said Mrs. Farnham, "I can stay here as long as any queen bee can." The bees countered with the api- aristic equivalent of the horse laugh. And the endurance contest was on. Mrs. Farnham moved into the home of her sister, Mrs. Alfred Meeg, of surburban River Forest, Wednesday for the summer. So did the bees, estimated to number 50, 000. While Mrs. Farnham was not exactly a lover of bees, and resented having them inside the walls of her home, she declined to be routed by them. She complained they made a noise like an "airplane motor." Two bee experts were called in to drive out the swarm. They bored holes in the walls and poured in acid. The bees seemed to thrive on it. They blew smoke into the holes. The bees ignored it. They commented, "If the queen bee would come out, the others would follow her." But the queen bee sat tight. "Probably the queen See will come out in a few days," they told Mrs. Farnham. MEN! READ THIS IMPORTANT NEWS! Abel Son, Inc.
