French, 320 Delaware avenue southeast, waived prelimin ary hearing and was bound to the grand jury Monday by Police Judge Morris Laird on a charge of illega possession of alcohol. He was arrested at Second street and South Federal avenue at 8:30 o'clock Saturday night with three half pint bottles ol alleged alcohol in his possession. A gallon can partly filled with alleged alcohol was found at his home in a search later. His bond was set at $500.

The case against John Loken, 656 Second street northeast, arrested on a charge of intoxication, was also continued. WINTER TERM TO OPEN THIS WEEK vVard Hamilton Points Out Progress Made by Institution. The Hamilton school of commerce s made excellent progress, par- icularly in the last three years, iVard Hamilton, president of the in- titution, pointed out Monday, in onnection with the opening of the nid-winter term this week. A number of new courses have ieen, introduced, additional instruc- ors employed and the service generally improved, he said. "Several years ago a definite de- :ision was made to offer a service that would be a decided improvement over the traditional business :ollege courses," Mr. Hamilton said. 'It took some time to gain any not- ceable recognition, but during the ast two years particularly, decided rogress has been made. Standards Set Up. ''Definite educational standards have been set up and the school seeks to serve those students who sre interested in the larger aspects of education and training, which are citizenship and service--these are the corner stones of true achievement and leadership." Mr. Hamilton said he was convinced that vocational training is important--the trained ability to serve in a specific capacity, but mere physical or mental skill is not sufficient. A good basic education the proper conceptions of service, business and its purpose --all oi these things and more must be taken into consideration. The school is not so much interested in enrollments and numbers but prefers to serve a more select group--students who appreciate th value of a more complete and thor ough preparation for service in the business world. Preparation Needed. While it is recognized that em ployment is desirable, the Hamil ton school deplores the idea tha young people are often induced t attend vocational schools on th promise--sometimes the guarantee of a position, Mr. Hamilton pointed out. "Those who have the foresigh and the good judgment to realize that a thorough preparation is thi first essential of success in anj field and set about the matter o making this preparation carefully will find many more opportunities awaiting them than those who mere ly seek a job," he said. No Developments in Liquor Seals Probe DES MOINES, Jan. 6. CT)--Another conference in the probe of the theft of Iowa liquor control commission seals broke up today with the participants announcing: "There are no new developments but we are still digging away." Lehan T, Ryan, assistant attorney general whom Gov. Clyde L. Herring appointed to head the probe, conferred briefly with the governor and Glen Schmidt, head of the state bureau of criminal investigation. Agree on Bonus Payment Plan Ray Murphy, right, commander of American Legion; Marvin A. Harlan," center, commander of Disabled Veterans of World War; and James E. Van Zandt, commander of Veterans of Foreign Wars, are reported in agreement on a proposal for payment of bonus, thus ending the difference of opinion which prevented bonus proponents from overriding presidential veto. (Central Press Photos) REGULATION FOR ALL CARRIERS IS DECLARED VITAL (Continued From rune 10) have used motor carriers, on a con tract basis, in the distribution of supplies to the various links of the chain. "Every shipper who is compelled to use railroad transportation pays a so-called emergency charge authorized to compensate railroads for deficient earnings, due to loss of traffic and reduction of rates to meet motor carrier competition. The reduced truck compelled rates generally apply only between the more important trade centers. The slack is taken up on traffic between the less important points where truck competition is not so keen. These are usually the smaller communities whose traffic volume is not sufficient to attract truck operators. Will Be Controlled. 'With these facts in mind it is not surprising that business is again tmanding regulation of motor car- iers as well as the railroads. With he passage of the motor carrier ct by the last congress, interstate ransportation over the highways vill ultimately be controlled and the resent chaotic conditions surround- ng that form of transportation, will e done away with. Business will uen be able to know where it is at, rderly marketing conditions will be estored and a healthier financial onflition will prevail. ·The motor carrier act 1935 does not place the management of motor carriers in the hands of the interstate commerce commission. No lim- tation on healthy initiative and en- :erprise is contemplated. It is assumed that managers will operate in obedience to the law and in con- 'ormity to reasonable standards expressed therein which are designed ;o assure justice and fair dealing to Lhe public, to restrict wasteful and destructive competition, and to promote stability and sound financial conditions in the motor carrier industry. 'The act does not empower the commission to initiate rates. The motor carriers are left free to initiate such rates as they may deem appropriate. They will, however, be subject to the rules and regulations that the commission may prescribe to govern the manner in which they shall be stated and published. The initial rates to be filed on or before March 2, 1936 cannot be suspended by the commission but they will be subject to attack .under the provisions of the act and publishers wil' be. required to defend their rates the same as the railroads now do -with respect to the rates they initiate." Guests at the meeting were Ha Smith of Clarion, B. B. Stillman o. Clear Lake and Frederick Beck. CITY BRIEFS THE NEW LEAF ]t's*a*Du*lf OnYfhat Has No Turning. E. McL. Alexander Woollcott (and what time I have trying to remember if they are three O's or ten T's 'in his name) has compiled some of his favorite pieces of literature in "The Woolcott (there it is again) Reader" and his choices are good and so is the book. It's a little heavy to hold up, though. Liking short pieces, rather than those of greater length. Mr. Wooll- cott (I can spell it without think- ng now) has included "Mary White," that beautiful tribute by William Allen White to his young daughter and "In the Green Moun- ain Country" by Clarence Day, both destined to be no more permanent han ordinary newspaper writings, and both fine enough to outlive oth- ·rs planned for a less hazardous ex- stance. DONE IN' A MORE HILARIOUS VEIN Mr. Day is more generally known .3 the author of those hilarious ooks, "Life With Father" and "God nd My Father." His "In the Green fountain Country" describes the ast day of Calvin Coolidge, his eath and burial, and is notable or simplicity and sincerity. Those vho have enjoyed Mr. Day's books, must have read with regret the news of his death a few days ago. J. M. Ban-ie's "Margaret Ogilvy," 'The Dolly Dialogs" by Anthony Hope, "The Happy Journey to Trenon and Camden," by Thornton Wilder, "A Doctor of the Old School" y Ian MacLaren. "My Little Bo}'" by Carl Ewald, "Mr. Fortune's Magot" by Sylvia Townsend Warner, 'The Children's Crusade" by Marcel Schwob, "The Schartz-Metterklume Method" by Saki, "The Tranbighs" Charles Macomb Flandrau, "Ko- mongo" by Homer W. Smith, "The Bar Sinister" by Richard Harding Davis, "The Whistlers Room" by Paul Alverdes, "Cardinal Manning" by Lytton Strachey and "A Handful of Dust" by Evelyn Waugh are included. THE PROMISE OF A SECOND READER There is a foreword by Mr. Wooll- cott (simple once you know how) and each piece is fallowed by a comment in the compiler's own inimitable style. Mr. Woollcott announces in conclusion that he finds "left out in the deliriom of packing--such essentials as 'All Kneeling' by Anne Parrish, "The History of Mr. Polly' by H. G. Wells and 'Gentle Julia' by Booth Tarkington. General consternation! And too late to do anything about it, unless you as the reader and the undersigned as the editor should work together so congenially that, instead of being ignominiously left down, we might Infant Daughter of Mr., Mrs. L. H. Evans Dies After Illness Helen Rac Evans, 20 months old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd H. Evans. 1205 Twelfth street northwest, died at a local hospital Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock following an illness. Committal services were held at St. Joseph's Catholic cemetery Monday afternoon, with (he Rev. R. P. Murphy in charge. The child was born April 16, 1934, at Mason City and was survived by the parents and eight sisters and two brothers. The body was taken to the Meyer funeral home. one day be promoted to the Second Reader." It's a happy thought--the second reader, and I hope Mr. Woollcott (It's that man again, Mamma) becomes as famous as the late Mr. McGuffey lor his readers. THE WIFE WHO STAVED AT HOME "Edna, His Wife," Margaret Ayer Barnes' latest novel is done in her usual competent manner and presents the picture of a woman whose husband was destined to travel farther than her mental capacity would permit her to. The tragic plight of a woman who had everything and could not enjoy it is excellently drawn. Mrs. Barnes has an enviable ability for recreating scenes and her description of the sinking of the Eastland is particularly vivid. Edna's father and mother were both drowned in the disaster and the story of the tragedy is told by her sister, who was also on the boat when it tipped over. NOW IS THE TIME FOR NEW LEAVES I have collected some notes on books during the past few months and never have done anything further than collect them. This being the time for new leaves, I musl throw the old away and before they go they deserve mention. "Gods Who Die," a collection of the reminiscences of George Edgerton Leigh Westbrook, written by Julian Dana, brings up a picture of Samoan life iefore the islands O f the south seas became tourist-ridden. 'Hands" by Charles G. Norris is :he story of three generations, from shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves or whatever it is--anyway the grandson earns his living the way his grand- 'ather did. Michael's son, Martin, rose far above his carpenter father and became a wealthy California contractor. The crash of 1929 caught he family fortunes and brought his son, Miles, from architectural stud- es to carpentering- or the like. Air my notes on "The Man on the 3arge." by Max Miller, say is 'John," John being the man on the barge. I remember that I didn't like t MISS ANDERSON FUNERAL HELD The Rev. William Galbreth Pays Tribute to Her Work in Church. Funeral services for Roberta Anderson, 17, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Sidney F. Wilson, 1411 Oeiaware avenue southeast, were held Monday afternoon at the Olivet M. E. church with the Rev. William Galbreth, pastor of the church, in charge of services, assisted by the Rev. H. O. Urness, pastor of Our Savior's Lutheran church. Miss Anderson was fatally injured in an automobile accident last Thursday evening. Mrs. L. H. Lundahl sang "Abide With Me" and "Sometime We'll Understand." She was accompanied by Mrs. Leon H. Woodward on the harp. Mr. Galbreth used as his text Psalm XC:12, "So teach us to number our days, th'at we may. apply our hearts unto wisdom." "Knowing Roberta as I have known her," said Mr. Galbreth, "I do not feel under the necessity today of saying- anything about her in death that I would not have said about her in life. Did Her Best. "I cannot remember ever assigning a task to her but what seemingly she did it to the best of her ability and in such a fine spirit that it was an inspiration to all of us. I submit this statement as to its accuracy to these young people who are here today and who have been associated with her in these services"In speaking for the loved ones of the family circle, for the young people with whom she was associated in the church, the school and the social life I can say in the language of Jonathan to David-'Roberta you will be missed for your seat will be empty.' Hearts Arc Grieved. "Our hearts are grieved more deeply when a young person is taken suddenly out of life. But it is really better to be busy up to the last 'in the tasks of life than to be compelled by old age or prolonged illness to surrender them. It is better to close our record on earth while the life is pure and wholesome and right in its attitude toward fellowman than maybe to come to the end under other conditions." Pallbearers were Everett Hanson, Donavan Trouger, Don Hubacker, Charles Ruggles, Herman. Anderson and Frank Walker. Burial was at Elniwood cemetery. Members of the Epworth league and Sunday school class of -which Miss Anderson, was a member attended in a body. Condon Quits Public Appearances U n t i l Hauptmann Case End NEW YORK. Jan. 6. (.Ti--Dr. John P. Condon, expressing himself as shocked by assertions he was exploiting the Lindbergh case, has terminated his public appearances "until the final processes of justice in the Hauptmann case have been carried out." The 75 year old former school teacher, who was Col. Charles A. Lindbergh's agent in the futile effort to ransom his son, canceled all scheduled lectures on crime suppression after becoming convinced his matives had been misinterpreted. TO START PROBE LATE NEXT WEEK Burkman Says Grand Jury to Investigate Democrat Statement. DES MOEMES, Jan. 6. (/P)-^County Attorney Carl Burkman said tc- day that grand jury investigation of the democratic state financial statement filed Saturday will begin lal« next week. Listing of more than $8,000 in contributions to the democratic party in Iowa by "Iowa democracy" and the "Iowa democratic club" led Burkman to announce the investigation. He declared that listing of such contributions was "subterfuge" and that the individual donors should be named. Burkman said he would call E. H. Birming-ham, state party chairman, before the grand jury as soon as the democratic chairman returns from Washington, where he is attending the Jackson day dinner and a meeting of the democratic national committee. Burkman pointed to what he called "legal loopholes" in the Iowa law regarding party financial statements. He said the lact that past or present democrats were also officials of the organizations listed in the democratic report placed on them the responsibility to report individual gifts. Will Start Wednesday. EMMETSBURG, Jan. 6.--The 1936 corn-hog sign-up program in Palo Alto county will open Wednesday, with meetings scheduled in Highland and Fern Valley townships on that day, County Agent Randall Hoffman said Sunday.
