TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 16 1936 1 TELLS WHY FEE MUST BE RAISED Secretary of Iowa's Farm Bureau Federation in Annual Report. FARM BUREAU AT A GLANCE DES MOINES, Jan. 16. (5-Delegates to the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation convention today heard: M. L. Wilson, assistant secretary of agriculture, advocate farming readjustments which will conserve the soil and a policy of "plenty without waste." I o w a Federation President Charles E. Hearst warn there is "grave danger" congress will not pass an AAA substitute. Hearst.and Donald Kirkpatrick, American Farm Bureau counsel, call for a militant and united fight to force passage. V. B. Hamilton, Iowa Farm Bureau secretary-treasurer, report total 1935 membership of 35,652, an increase of 9,200; urge boosting of membership dues from 55 to $10 a year. Delegates awaited a. report of an "extraordinary" session of F a r m Bureau directors, AAA corn-hog committeemen and coun-. ty agents on a program to obtain an AAA substitute. DBS MOINES, Jan. 16. UB--V. B Hamilton, Iowa Farm Bureau federation secretary-treasurer, reported to the Iowa federation convention here today on last year's activities, outlined plans for next year and explained why an increase In the membership fee is necessary. Hamilton assured the delegates the organization program to be placed in effect this year and the membership fee boost, effective in 1937, are essential for the development of the Farm Bureau and the ultimate restoration of economic prosperity to the Iowa farm. 45 Comities Approve Kaisc. The secretary-treasurer said that increase of the dues and payment of $4 of each membership fee to the state organization instead of 51 as in the past, is up to the 100 county Farm Bureaus and the 100 voting directors of the state organization. He said that 45 counties already have adopted the amendment to the county articles of incorporation, changing to the 510 membership, that 39 counties have deferred action; that one county tied in the vote; that six counties voted no: and that nine counties have yet to hold their annual meetings. Must Go Forward. "We must go on from here," he said, "holding the ground we have gained and evolving a stronger policy for American agriculture. This will take money. But I doubt if anyone is capable of making a closs estimate of the value of this organization in dollars and cents. It is worth more than mere dollars." Hamilton declared the state bureau never has been able to operate on the 50 cents it retains out of the dollar now allotted it from each present $5 membership. Fifty cents of the dollar goes to the American federation. Plans Are Explained. He said an extra dollar will be sent the state office in 1936 to be used to develop the newly formed organization program, and provide financing of the "minute men" contacts." The new organization plan, he said, will provide full time district men to aid county bureaus in building membership. The 50 counties that used district men in 1935, Hamilton reported, averaged approxi OBIBt BOT'A'DXSKASS Hl»atri»e,-?»lB.-It bfts been brought to"light by jaolantifi* raeearoh that goitre la not * di«- feass^ssd is so* to be treated B euch.

Large Membership Gain. The secretary-treasurer reported that membership in the American Farm Bureau federation in 1935 was 71.7 per cent greater than in 1933; that 28 states increased their dues paid the American federation; that five states more than doubled membership during the last year; that Iowa showed the second largest membership for the year and gained 9,200 members during 1935, making a total of 35,652. Clayton county, Hamilton reported, made the largest gain in membership, adding 260 new members. Others Report Increases. O'Brien county, he stated, had the highest per cent of farmers as paid members with 576, while Benton county had the record bureau with 696 members. In a December membership campaign, Hamilton said, this county increased its membership to 1,138 for 1936. LAVAL WINS IN CHAMBER VOTE Accorded 315-252 Ballot of Confidence Following Challenge. PARIS. Jan. 16. .T--Premier Laval of France was granted a vote of confidence, 315 to 252, by his chamber of deputies today. Thus the swarthy premier again triumphed over leftist efforts to unseat his government. Today's showdown was precipitated by members of the dominant radical-socialist party, who voted in caucus a condemnation of M. Laval's policies. The premier, however, posed a question of confidence on postponement of debate on his general policies and won. He asked instead for priority for a discussion of agricultural matters. Fail to Agree. Previously, only the inability of the radical-socialists to agree among themselves had saved the cabinet from collapse before the chamber convened. A chamber recess was called after center and right deputies had howled down a socialist. Obviously perturbed at the prospect of a cabinet upset, Premier Laval previously had called in Minister Edouard Herriot of the radical-socialist, and deputies said he warned him of the danger of a financial crisis and devaluation. Condemn His Policies. The radical-socialists, in addition to condemning the Laval policies, also voted by 62 to 20 to demand that members of the party resign their six cabinet portfolios. They held this demand in -abeyance, however, preferring to fight M. Laval on the floor of the chamber on a motion condemning his policies. The possibility that M. Laval might win the battle on the floor was left open when the radical-socialists, by a vote of 41 to 40, failed to impose party discipline on the group. Thus the members were left free to vote for Laval if they wish, without automatically incurring expulsion from the party. Have Two Reasons. Radical-socialist hostility toward the premier was based on: 1 The belief he is "lukewarm" if. his support of the league _ of nations. 2 The feeling that his economic and financial decree laws have accomplished little in conquering- tne French depression. REBUFFS BRUNO Refuses to Grant Writ of Habeas Corpus to Halt Electrocution. observers said that action in effect included the petition for a stay of execution. The delay had been requested in order to permit the court to review the petition. Only Moderate Crowd. Only a moderate crowd was in the courtroom when the black robed justices filed in. An attorney arguing a case before the court started to arise to continue his speech but was stopped by Hughes. The chief justice in a low voice said; "Just a moment." Adjusting 1 his glasses he leaned forward and in a clear loud voice said: 'In the matter of Bruno Richard Hauptmann the application for leave to file petition for writ of habeas corpus is denied." Newsmen Flash Word. The courtroom tension eased as newsmen flashed the word. A mo.- ment later argument was resumed in a routine case. Hauptmann's Washington lawyers who had filed the last minute appeal slightly more than two hours before were not in the courtroom. Hughes paused slightly before saying the last word "denied." The denied petition had container! a charge that the prosecution had "suppressed" important evidence favorable to Hauptmann. Fail to Disclose. The state also was said to have 'failed to disclose" at the trial evidence that the kidnap ladder "was materially altered and changed" between the time that it was introduced in evidence. The petition was presented by Neil Burkinshaw and Nugent Dodds, Washington attorneys recently retained by Hauptmann's defense. Attorneys in the courtroom said the high court's action closes the door of all courts to Hauptmann, SNOW BLANKET COVERS STATE Ranges From Inch m North Section to 10 Inches m Southeast. DES MOINES, Jan. 16. JB--Iowa awoke today tucked under a clean white blanket of new snow which ranged from an inch in the north part of the state to 10 inches in the southeast section. The snow continued falling at several points and the weatherman's prediction of more snow tonight and tomorrow promised the state its heaviest snow of the season before the clouds clear away. Temperatures ranged down to two degrees above zero at Sioux City during; the' night and a zero reading was forecast in", the northeast section for tonight. A low of five above was expected in the northwest with the mercury stopping at 10 above in south Iowa. Heaviest at Burlington. The heaviest snowfall was measured at Burlington where 10 inches overlaid the already snow blanketed ground. Council Bluffs reported seven inches, heaviest fall of the year. Centerville measured eight inches, Ottumwa six inches: Creston five inches: Washington four inches; Muscatin five inches; Iowa City four inches; Davenport three inches and Keokuk three inches. Sioux -City reported 2% inches, Fort Dodge one inch, Mason City one inch; Waterloo one inch; Charles City one half inch, Marshalltown two inches, Cedar Rapids two inches and still snowing. Clinton reported a light snow and Dubuque said the fall commenced there shortly after 8 a. m. The state highway commission at Ames reported that all highways, although covered with, snow, were open to traffic. At Mason City THEATERS nj K. J. i*. BETTE DAVIS STARS IN "DANGEKOUS" In a role which is, in many respects, similar to the part which she enacted in "Of Human Bondage," Bette Davis again proves her ability as an actress in the Cecil's current feature, "Dangerous." Far from being: the most sympathetic role she has had, her part in "Dangerous" makes her a brilliant, beautiful but selfish actress in whose wake lies a string of broken hearts. The supporting cast, headed by Franchot Tone, John Eldredge and Alison Skipworth, is satisfactory. CUKRENT FEATURES CECIL--Ends Friday, "Dangerous." PALACE--Ends Friday, "Return of Peter Grimm" and "Payoff." S T R A N D--Ends Thursday, "Way Down East" and "The Bi- shop'Misbehaves." Starts Friday, "Moonlight on the Prairie" and "This is the Life."

This picture starts Saturday at the Cecil. * * # BARRYMORE IMPRESSES Lionel Barrymore, appearing on the screen in his first starring vehicle for some time, is every bit as impressive as he has ever been in the title role of "The Return of Peter Grimm," now playing at the Palace with "The Payoff." As usual in Barrymore pictures, comedy is pleasantly interwoven throughout the drama. Helen Mack and James Bush have the romantic leads. "The Payoff" is a fast moving story of racketeers and racetracks and rake-offs, with Jimmy Dunn NOW WASHINGTON, Jan. is. The supreme court refused today to save Bruno Richard Hauptmann from the electric chair. Hauptmann's petition for a wnt of habeas corpus and a stay of execution had been filed shortly after noon by his attorneys. The "decision to deny the petition was agreed upon while the justices ate their lunch from 1 to 1:30 p. m. (CST), Audience Is Hushed. Chief Justice Hughes announced the- verdict to a hushed audience as soon as the court convened at 1:33 p. m. (CST) -- three minutes late. Apparently the discussion had extended overtime. The chief justice said merely that the petition for a writ of habeas corpus was denied.
