Herring said today he regretted the effigy hanging of supreme court justices near the Iowa State college campus Tuesday, but declared there was no evidence so far that college students were responsible. The governor also declared he would seek a retraction from the "March of Time," radio program which last night used the effigy hanging as a part of its dramatized news report. "I am informed," the governor said, "that this program reported that 'state university of Iowa students hanged the justices in effigy and otherwise grossly exaggerated and misstated the incident. "I will demand the source of information for this broadcast and an apology," he declared. The governor also disclosed a telegram he received today from Trenton, N. J. It was signed, "Muska- teers of America." The telegram read: "State college must he closed im mediately in view of hanging supreme court judges in effigy. This means business. No delay." "I won't pay any attention to it," the governor said. "New Jersey's got enough on her hands with Hauptmann." "The effigy hanging is in no wise indicative of sentiment in thi. state," he declared.
