MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FEBRUARY 3 1931 PRINCE MAKES WEDDING PLANS Lennart Unperturbed by His Royal Grandfather's v · Disapproval. STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Feb. 3. l.t*i --Unperturbed by King Gustavo's refusal to sanction his marriage to a commoner, youthful Prince Lennart proceeded today with plans for his wedding to Fraulein Karin Niss- ysndt, daughter oJ a Swedish. Dutch industrialist. To interviewers he seemed much more concerned that his fiancee was lying ill of influenza at her father's home than that to carry out his purpose he will have to surrender his princely ranking and titles and become plain Mr. Lennart Wilhelmson. "What does the rank of prince really mean these days in Germany, where we are going to settle?" he " asked, adding that he would become a German .agriculturalist but keep his Swedish heart. They hope to make their home, he said, at Maihu castle, near Lake Constance. While Prince Lennart, who is the son of Prince William, second son of King Gustave, will lose his rights of succession to the throne by marrying against the king's will, the honorary title o f . count or prince probably will be bestowed upon him.

In fact, I can see how he may suffer; suppose he is called on to help make up for what is lopped off from the big fellows' assessments. . * » * A SSUME, for the sake of a rounJ -figure, that, as against each man in the country with an, at present, taxable Income, there are 1,000 of us with incomes too insignificant to be levied on, who do, nevertheless, take an occasional drink, or would, if drinks were legalized-and taxed, as per the wets!, suggestion. This would mean (would it not'"( that each plutocrat referred to could be excused from further income taxation; we small fry would make up the kitty, amongst us. It is easy to understand a wet income taxpayer's approval of such an arrangement; not so easy to understand why it appeals to the little chaps. Y ET IT IS an idea which evidently does have a powerful appeal to the litle chaps--I mean, the wets, of course, e Of all the contentions advanced by «»»-«-T* s "7J-~* 1 T./r»* Hangs On, Mix This at Home Tho best cough remedy that money could buy, can easily be miicd nt borne. It saves money and gives you the most reliable, quick-acting medicine you ever used. Tho ivoy. it takes hold of stubborn coughs and chest colds, giving immediate relief, is astonishing. Any druggist can supply yTiu with 2J4 ounces o£ Pinei. Pour this into a piat bottle, and fill up with plain granulated sugar syrup or strained honey. It's no trouble at all to mix, and when you once uso it, yon will never be. without it. Keeps perfectly and tastes Bood-r-chilflren .really like it. It ia surprising how quickly this loosens the germ-laden phlegm, and soothes and heals tho inflamed membranes. At the same time, part of the medicine is absorbed into the blood, where It acts directly-on the bronchial tubes, nnd helps the system throw off the -whole trouble. . Even those severe coughs which follow cold epidemics, are promptly, ended. Pines is a highly concentrated compound of genuine Norway Pine, containing the active agent of creosote, in a refined, palatable form.

HEAVY AIR OVER MOUNTAINS DOES JOB OF OVERCOAT Area of High Pressure Over Idaho and Utah Keeps U. S. Warm. By F. B. COLTON. Associated Press Science Writer WASHINGTON, Feb. 3. (IP)---The skating isn't so good this wintev, but coal bills are.smaller, because there is a lot of heavy air over the Rocky mountains that refuses to move. ' This is one of the warmest and dryest winters in a Jong time, says C. L. Mitchell, chief forecaster of the United States weather bureau, for the reason that an area of, high pressure has been hanging over the vicinity of Utah and Idaho since the middle of November." Acts Like Overcoat. This area of dense, heavy air. Mitchell explained today, keeps the cold air of the arctic regions away from most of the United States as effectively as a ne\v overcoat. Wind.* that ordinarily would sweep down direct from the north and chill the whole country are turned aside by the high pressure area and strike only New England, which is the onlv section to have normally cold weather this winter. A high pressure area is a sort of wave crest in the sea of atmosphere that surrounds the world. There is more air over us then and it weigha more. Winds whirl outward from the center of the area m the same direction the hands of a clock move. A high pressure area usually brings fair weather. Trough in Air. Out in the Northern Pacific an area of low pressure also has been hovering since Nov. 15. It is like a trough in the sea of atmosphere. Warm air rushes in at the bottom, circles in- a direction opposite to the clock, rises, is cooled and rain and storms result. Every'bigh pressure area has a "low" following it. 'The combined effect of the high and low pressure areas is to draw air warmed in crossing the Pacific north across the United States instead of letting it veer south as usual, said Mr. Mitchell. This, with the Arctic blasts shut off, made it from six to 25 degrees warmer than normal the latter part of January between the Great Lakes and the Rockies. f IN THE RADIO WORLD TUESDAY Mrs. Alfred V.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 3. .T»-- Bishop James Cannon, Jr.. of Oil' Methodist Episcopal church, south today hobbled into the Mount Vev non Methodist church on crutches to face charges filed against him last September by foui\ of his fellow clergymen. Doors of the church were locked immediately. Bishop W. N. Ainsworth, who has charge of the proeedings, sent word to reporters by a uniformed policeman, who was. standing guard at a side door, that he would see them. Papers Must Wait. He informed them "this is. an ecclesiastical proceedings carried on as a church law prescribes and nothing will be given to the public until it is over. When a conclusion is reached, I will give out the results as well as the names of the men who are conducting the hearings." He then stepped back into the church, the door was closed and the policeman mounted guard. Clinrges Unknown. What specific charges are con- tained in the accusations, filed September by Dr. Forrest J. Prettyman, Baltimore, Dr. I. P. Mai-tin, Abingdon, Va., and Drs. Costen J. Harrell and J. T. Mastin, Richmond, Wver has' been disclosed. The temperance leader faced 12 investigating fellow clergymen today. He was not on trial as the only body which can try a bishop of the Methodist Episcopal church, south, is the general - conference which elected him and that doesn't meet until 1931. If the 12 men investigating the charges find they have weight, Bishop Cannon will be suspended and his trial held in 1934. TENOLD ELECTED AT NORTH!

Garden of Henry introduced a senate bill raising the price of marriage license from $1.50 to $2.50, with the addition $1 going to the state as a vital statistics fund un der control of the health department. The house passed a joint resolution, already approved by the senate, petitioning the tariff commission to request President Hoover to raise the tariff on corn. Resolution Adopted A concurrent resolution by Representative E. O. Ellsworth of Hardin county asking federal legislation for aid in policing highway; was. adopted by the house. As one method of obtaining such protections, Ellsworth suggested the use of men in army posts. The house passed the Watts bill fixing the open season on fur-bearing animals from Nov. 10 to Jan. 20.

HOOVER DEFENDS STAND ON RELIEF (Continued From Tngc 1). ury for the benefit of foreign sufferers now find it worthy of condemnation to impose part o£ the burden on the whole people?" ·':, Senator Swanaon, democrat, Vir- EtiriaI';ibinea;Ui£J3lea : tor:fe dejral '^.s^ sistance. He' ; declared ^Presfdent' Hoover and the house were "willing to feed a mule engaged in production, but a man engaged in production must starve unless he can get money from other sources." Calls Him "" The heart of the controversy is the proposal that $25,000,000 be appropriated for drought and unemployment relief thru the Red Cross. It has been approved by the senate and rejected by the house. Representative Cramton of Mich- gan created a stir in the house with declaration that anybody in the senate who charged he was seeking a federal job "a plain unadulterated iar." Cramton, was defeated for reelection last fall. He recently has ]een suggested in administration circles'for appointment to a position n connection with the George Washington bicentennial commission. Senate democrats have criticized his part in the opposition to relief appropriations in view of his defeat at the polls. 'The dormant world court issue awoke to find itself entangled in the maneuvering over a special session. Administration leaders expressed a belief the · extra session could be avoided by a relief compromise if President Hoover would give assurance he would not call a special session of the senate to consider the court protocols. Nominntions Still Up. Nominations to the power commission, another point of disagreement between the senate and the president, received attention from the senate interstate commerce commission. It reported without recommendation the nominations of Chairmar Smith and Commissioners Garsaud and Qraper.

The legislature now must enact bills to provide for a special election at which the voters must approve or reject the amendment, the work is expected to be merely a matter of form, however, inasmuch as the amendment has passed both houses. Good roads leaders hope to have the election date set in March, so that if the people approve, legislation providing for the sale of the bonds can be adopted during the latter part of this session, which probably will close in April. The Iowa supreme court assuredly will be called on to determine the amendment's validity in a test suit before the bonds are sold. An opinion would be sought as soon as possible.
