TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 9 1936 IOWA GETS MORE FUNDS FOR WPA Hill Expects to Be Able to Put About 8,000 More Men to Work. WASHINGTON, Jan. 9. GB--L. S. Hill, Iowa works progress administrator, announced today Iowa had been given an additional $2,500,000 for WPA projects with which he hoped to put about 8,000 more men to work within two weeks. Hill received word of the additional allotment at a conference with Harry L. Hopkins, federal WPA administrator. Hopkins informed him that President Roosevelt already had approved the new allocation which would supplement the $5,800,000 previously alloted. To Add Extra Men. The Iowa administrator said his state staff would start making- arrangements to add the extra men to the payroll as rapidly as possible out because bids for materials have to be advertised 10 days and projects lined up, it would take between one and two weeks to achieve his goal. The conference with Hopkins also was attended by Representative Hubert Utterback, Des Moines, Iowa, democrat and J. J. Hughes of Des Moines, Iowa director of the National Emergency council. Want More Funds. Hill, Hughes and Ralph Kittinger, . secretary of the Iowa relief administration, came here to urge Hopkins to provide more money both for increasing the employment lists of the WPA immediately and to carry oh the program after Feb. 15, when they estimated present funds would run out. They expressed hope after the conference that still further funds would be made available. Hill said Hopkins had promised to notify him next week what could be done. only whereby we can harm our enemy without injuring ourselves." MUSSOUNI'S ARMY AT ITS FULL STBENGTH (CopyrlKht, 3930. by The A»mwlal«l rm.ii) ROME, Jan. 9.--Premier Mussolini's million man army was shown today to be at full strength. Widespread flag ceremonies during the sixty-third birthday anniversary of the "wartime queen," Elena, disclosed replacements wherever troops had gone to Africa. A dispatch from Asrti, in the far northwestern corner of Italy, circulated by the official Stefan! agency, reported presentation of one flag even to a regiment of the Assietta division, in the neighborhood close to the Italo-French frontier. Informed sources revealed that the original Assietta division, like many others, had been sent to Africa, where Italy is engaged in warfare with Ethiopia, but had been replaced by a new division bearing the same name. The original Assietta division went to Libya, Italy's north African possession bordering on Egypt, where the garrison has been reinforced amid tension with Britain, arising from application of league of nations war penalties against Italy. Authoritative sources insisted the presence of the Assietta and several other divisions back of the French frontier did not indicate regarrison- ing of the frontier. REPORT ITALIAN ADVANCE HALTED (Continued From P»Ke I) warriors have employed for the last three months. Massed in North. With an estimated 400,000 men massing close to the northern front about Makale and another 300,000 ranging on the east and toward the southern frontiers, the emperor counseled: "The present war can be won only by patience and science. Half of our weapons whereby we may attain victory consist in using various stratagems patiently and without haste, in. only harassing by sudden attacks in difficult places and -·in lengthening the time; "It will mean destruction for our warriors if we should attempt to attack in a body the enemy who has been preparing --· ' " ' First Suit Filed to Recover Processing Taxes From Courts NEW YORK, Jan. 9. (.T)--An Indiana baking company filed suit yesterday in United States district court seeking to recover processing taxes deposited with the court under the agricultural adjustment act. The suit was filed by Alfred E. Eades of Evansville, Ind., and Ralph A. Vetter of Kendallville, Ind., operating as the Vetter Baking company. It was considered here as the first suit seeking to recover impounded processing taxes since the fall of the AAA under the supreme court's ruling of Monday. Cars Damaged In Crash. ALGONA, Jan. 9.--A Ford car driven by Richard Fadgen of Flandreau, S. Dak., smashed into a parked car, driven by Mrs. George Lee late Wednesday on highway No. 18, six miles west of Algona. The Dakota car was damaged to the extent that the Emmetsburg wrecker was called. The Lee car was less damaged. Mrs. Lee had stopped in front of the Carl Siep farm home to get some cream cans and had left her car parked. BRUNO UNLIKELY TO GET REQUEST Hauptmann Asks to Appear Before State Court of Pardons. TRENTON, N. J., Jan. 9. (JPI-- Gov. Harold G. Hoffman expressed doubt today that the court of pardons would grant Bruno Richard Hauptmann's request for a personal hearing when it considers Ms mercy plea on Saturday. Never has a condemned man appeared before the court to ask clemency. Hoffman did not disclose his own opinion, but said he would confer with Chancellor Luther A. Campbell, the state's highest judicial officer, also a member of the court. Decision Up to Court. Chancellor Campbell indicated the decision on hearing Hauptmann, whose execution is reported scheduled for Friday, Jan. 17, was one for the entire court. "I would like an opportunity to appear before the honorable board of pardons when they consider my case, and be given a chance to answer all questions the court may care to .ask me," wrote Hauptmann, convicted slayer of the kidnaped Lindbergh baby. His message was taken to the governor yesterday by C. Lloy Fisher of defense counsel. Hoffmar said he would announce the court meeting place tomorrow. No Execution Stay. The governor said he had no in tention now of granting Hauptmaun a stay of execution. "It is not my present intention t grant a reprieve," said Hoffman "My present information is that I d not have the power." He said he was.advised last wee that a constitutional provision limil ing reprieves to 90 days after con viction meant 90 days after convic tiou in trial court. Enroute to America. Meanwhile, the governor disclosei that certain documents relating tc the case are enroute to America on the German liner Europa, due ii New York tomorrow. The governor said he had no asked for the documents. The opinion prevails that Hauptmann's lawyers were instrumental in having them sent to this country. Fisher declined to comment on the purported documentary evidence but it was understood it involved the late Isador Fisch, Hauptmann's with the utmost care, two of the moat momentous opinions--the majority opinion and the minority opinion--ever rendered in a case before the supreme court o£ the United States. 1V111 Affect Lives. "The ultimate results of the language of these opinions will profoundly affect the lives of Americans for many years to come." Frequently through his address! the president sought to appeal for support from all parties. He urged those hearing him to organize--not only a party organization "but an organization among all those, regardless of party, who believe in retaining progress and ideals." Comparing these times with Jackson's, the president declared the real issue "is the right of the average man and woman to lead a finer, a better and a happier life." Mentions Campaign. Mentioning the coming campaign for the first time in a public utterance, the president said "the basic issue will be the retention of popular government --. an issue fraught once more with the difficult problem of disseminating facts and yet more facts, in the face of an opposition bent on hiding and distorting facts." He urged each of those present to constitute himself a committee of one to spread the facts abroad and to get at the truth that lies somewhere behind the smokescreen of charges and countercharges of a national campaign." James Downing Dies. DES MOINES, Jan. 9. Cffl--A heart attack proved fatal to James E. Downing, 68 year old agricultural secretary to the Dea Moines Chamber of Commerce. business partner. Hauptmann has insisted that he j obtained the Lindbergh ransom money found in his possession from Fisch. Martin Coday Dies. RED OAK, Jan. 9. UP)--Martin A. arms for forty Coday, 65, former city councilman, years. We shall consider the means died here following a long illness.

In an implied plea for support of persons of all "political affiliations," he said the 1936 issue will be "retention of popular government." Brief AAA Mention. He made only brief mention of AAA's death, offered no substitute pending further study. The majority and minority opinions of the supreme court, he said, will "affect the lives of Americans for years to come." Governor Talmadge of Georgia did not attend the 550 a plate dinner at which the president spoke last night before 2,000 democrats including the cabinet, senators, representatives and committee members. Conspicuous Absentees. There were other conspicuous absentees, including two former democratic presidential nominees who have figured prominently in former Jackson day dinners--Alfred E. Smith and John W. Davis. Former Governor Ritchie of Maryland also was absent. Glass and Byrd. But sitting at -the speaker's table not far from the president were Senators Glass and Byrd of Virginia, who have frequently criticized new deal policies, and scattered through the crowd were such other some time critics as Senators Gore (D., Okla.) and Bailey (D., N. Car.) Committee members hoped today to receive word that this and 2,000 other such dinners from coast to coast and even beyond had wiped out the party deficit of about ?400,000 and cleared the way for raisin a powerful campaign fund. Dinner Draws §100,000. The dinner at which the president spoke was a $100,000 affair alone, out of which the committee expected to realize more than $80,000. Mrs. Roosevelt spoke at another assemblage of the same kind here, but at this the charge was ?10 instead of S50. The 2,000 democrats frequently cheered and shouted as the president compared the issues of today with those that faced Jackson and concluded with the words: "The people of America know the heart and know the purpose of their government. "They and we will not retreat." "History Repeats." Several times, as he compared today with Jackson's time, the chief executive said that "history repeats." The first time he laughed with the crowd. . The most vigorous applause came when he mentioned the AAA decision and said "the attainment of justice and continuance of prosperity for American agriculture remain an immediate and constant objective of my administration." "I know you will not be surprised," he had said, "by lack of comment on my part tonight on the recent decision by the supreme court. I cannot and will not render offhand judgment without studying, CRISIS IN WEST COAST SHIPPING Crew Demands for Six Hour Day in Port See 2,000 Men on Strike. ENGLISH LAWYER IS PUT ON STAND Government Says Any Drake Estate Left Would Not Be Unclaimed. CHICAGO, Jan. 9. JP--Prosecutors in the Drake estate mail fraud trial today hoped to prove that even if Sir Francis Drake had left an estate valued at billions it no longer would be lying around loose, awaiting a claimant. The government offered a translation of the Elizabethan buccaneer's will yesterday to show his estate was a modest one and not of the fabulous value allegedly attributed to it by the 41 defendants, charged with collecting at least 51,199,000 from 70,000 persons on the promise of a share in the fortune. Today's schedule called for Barrister Charles Challen of London, Eng., to tell whether, under English law, the estate would still be intact if it existed. Prosecutor Austin Hall previously declared the fortune not only was mythical but would long since have reverted to the crown. SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 9. Crew demands for a 6 hour day in port brought a crisis in west coast shipping today, with about 2,000 men on strike. Only 11 small coastal carriers remain in trade and the shipowners association reported these "will probably be tied up as fast as they can make port." Of 57 steam schooners standing die, 23 were tied up because of lack of cargo or obsolescence. Four deep water vessels, including 'anama-Pacific's passenger liner 'ennsylvania. all registered from he east coast, 'were tied up here be- ause their crews demanded west oast registration which would give them higher pay. GOAL EXCEEDED ONWORK RELIEF Roosevelt Issues Report in Accordance With Terms of Law. WASHINGTON, Jan. 9. (JP)-resident Roosevelt reported to ongress today that work relief em- loyment on Dec. 28 totaled 3,541,00 persons or more than the orig- nal 3,500,000 goal. The exhaustive summary of ac- vities under the $4,000,000,000 ap- ropriation was prepared by the ational emergency council. It was submitted in accordance ·ith a. provision of the work relief ct requiring that a report of ex- enditures be made before Jan. 10 o the three succeeding congresses. The report said the works prog- ess administration accounted for ,756,000 of those employed on Dec. 8--the remainder by other federal igencies. URGES EXPANSION AS AID FOR FARM (Continued From Pane ]) Droved a storm center as first AAA idministrator and later as the pres- dent'a foreign trade adviser, would )ut his iSeas before the parley. Peek will not be present in person; his views are expected to be communicated through an intermediary. It is believed he will insist hat agricultural tariffs, instead of jeing lowered as in some instances n the new deal's trade treaty with Canada, should lie increased, even to the exclusion of all foreign farm imports. Other proposals he may stress are (1) That new tariff barriers be raised against certain other Imports which could be supplanted by American farm by-products in domestic manufacture; (2) That farm surpluses be exported on a barter basis. Anathema to Hull. Many of the ideas he is pushing are anathema to Hull and Wallace. Another disclosure today was that Secretary Wallace held a hurried and secret conference yesterday with the house appropriations committee. Some officials are known to fear that there will be a strong movement among legislators to grant farmers an outright subsidy, without any strings attached. The administration, it is generally believed, would prefer any new program to include some kind of farm management, aiming at "balanced" agriculture. While all this was going on, the house agriculture committee drafted five proposals for tentative, study and the executive branch took two steps Tax Suits Held Up. The AAA announced formally its belief that the supreme court decision did not affect marketing agreements, orders, or licenses under the agriculture adjustment act. The justice department notified 'ederal attorneys that processing tax injunction suits in which $150,000,0000 has been impounded in lower courts should be held in status quo until the supreme court rules n the Louisiana rice cases. This decision may determine whether a processor seeking to recover must jrove he did not pass the taxes on .0 others. And to think that Thomas Jeferson was bitterly criticized for laving spent 518,000,000 for the xmisiana Purchase. -- Atchison Globe. Will Go to Florida.

Charles City Boy, 15, Admits Five Robberies CHARLES CITY, Jan. 9.--Elwin Kelly, 15, confessed Wednesday to robbing four business places. He said he entered the Fred- crickson brothers furniture store and obtained a glass cutter that he used in the Gildncr-Buick- man clothing store window, where he obtained a few pennies, and the Nockels pool hall, taking ?14. He entered the Coast-to-Coast store early Sunday. Kelly's arrest occurred after he was seen 'smoking an expensive brand of cigarets although previously he had rolled his own from a tin.

ROOSEVELT AND COUGHLIN TALK Detroit Radio Priest Hints at Test of Federal Reserve Board. WASHINGTON, Jan. 9. OP)-President Roosevelt talked with Father Coughliu of Detroit in a 20 minutes visit today which was described by the radio priest as "entirely social." "I happened to be here on business," Father Coughlin said, "and I paid a courtesy visit to' the president." Asked if he and Senator Thomas (D., Okla.) were going to test in the courts the constitutionality of the new · federal reserve act, the priest replied, "you are a good guesser," but would go no farther. He added he was going to estab- lish a national newspaper and was looking for the best possible editorial writers. Asked if he was going to support President Roosevelt in the next campaign, Father Coughlin said that was not discussed. "We just avoided that subject," he added.
