SPENCER, Feb. 5. -- Rush C Smith denied charges brot against him and Dr. R. W. Remer by Leo J McGuire, who is suing the two men for $45,000 in damages. In a petition filed in district court McGuire claimed that on the night of Jan 5 he was taken by the two men against his will to the Smith hunting shack and threatened with being branded, threatened with being whipped by a blacksnake whip anc threatened with a rope tied in a hangman's noose. Smith stated: "A great many stories and rumors have come to me in regard to what happened to.Leo McGuire a1 my hunting shack on the evening o: Jan. 5, 1931. An origfnal notice hat been served upon me in which Leo McGuire claims-he was kidnapec and was taken by force to mj hunting shack in Lake township Clay county, and was there personally assaulted, abused and mistreated, and asks damages in the sum of $45,000. Was Not Mistreated. "I wish to say that Leo McGuire did go with me to the hunting shack, but he was not mistreatec or misused or abused. Dr. Remer accompanied me at my request anc went as a witness only and hac nothing else to do with the matter "I have been cited to appear 'a the March, 1931, term of the dis trict court in Clay county, and a that time all of the evidence an .facts in regard to this matter wil be fully disclosed, and will show that the reports and claims of McGuire are unture. "I do not believe that judgment should be formed on rumors when a case of this kind is pending in court and I respectfully ask that the public withhold forming its opinion until all of the evidence is given to the jury as the law requires. Opportunity Is Welcomed. "I will welcome an opportunity to tell all of the facts at the March term of the district court. "Reports have come to_me that 1 have offered Leo McGuire large sums of money to settle this case. This is likewise untrue. I have not paid, nor shall I willingly pay. to Leo McGuire any sum of'money. "In justice to myself there is nothing- tor me to do except to tell the jury the facts, and I will willingly do this at the March term of court and in the regular and usual way. "I do not believe tnls case should be tried orb, the streets, and I ask "ttoat tne /public -withhold forrfting ~ -* " aiou until all of the- facts court." Ames Flying Club Formed. AMES, Feo. 5.

President Baker's s t a t e m e n t reads: Baker Statement. "Several weeks ago the Evening Gazette, published at Cedar Rapids Iowa, began the publication of a series of articles seriously reflecting upon the president of the university and -the state board of education. These were ignored by the press of the state and for that reason we have refrained from making any statement. "We recognize, however, that we are charged as public officers with great responsibility, and now that the governor of Iowa has recommended a public investigation, we feel that some statement is due the public. In this connection, speaking for the entire board, I want to repeat what I said when the governor of the state sent to the sembly his message' requesting that a joint commitee be appointed to investigate these chages, namely, that we welcome this investigation. It is now the only way to dispose of these charges. Members Present. "Every member of the board was present at this meeting, and they are unanimous in their support of President Jessup and in the conclusion that' the charges made against him and others are unfounded and unjust. All we ask is that the investigation be public and thoroly free from all semblance of partisanship and factionalism. "We have nothing to hide, nothing to fear. When all the facts have been brot' out, the people of this state will know how truly great their university is and how ably it has been administered, and I venture to predict they will be astounded when the motives which have In- night.
