, MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 21 1936 ELEVEN COURT'S ACTION Questions Justice of Order Giving Taxes Back lo Processors. WASHINGTON. Jan. 21. (.!')-Questioning "the justice" of the supreme court's action yesterday in ordering return of $200,000,000 of impounded processing taxes to manufacturers, secretary Wallace said today "the time has come when long-suffering patience calls for practical and immediate action by the congress and the administration." Wallace declared that "the AAA is not dead, and, even more important, the f a r m sentiment which built itp :M years of strenuous f i g h t i n g for equality to agriculture is not dead." He cdilnl: "The great bulk of the farmers of this country have steadfastly endeavored to get their purpose the moral, legal and economic equivalent of what the corporate form of organization and the tariff give to industry. "Since 1921 they have worked steadily on this problem. It took them six years to convert both branches of confess aad another five years before they got a president w." saw things their way. How much longer it will take to gain the approval of the third branch of government remains to be seen." Attorneys Argue Van Hooser Lawsuit Before Judge Clark Attorneys in the .$2,650 damage action brought by Mrs. Mary M. Van Hooser against Charles Gilbert argued their respective cases to a jury Tuesday afternoon at the close of the evidence before Judge Joseph J. Clark. The plaintiff's testimony alleged that, due to negligent operation and to a faulty permanent waving machine, she received a painful and disfiguring burn on her head while getting a permanent wave at the defendant's beauty parlor. Mr. Gilbert contended that Mrs. Van Hooser failed to inform the operator that the clamps or spacers of the machine were too tight to her scalp, and that if the treatment was painful she could have removed the clamps by herself. The operator was Miss Grace Spencer, who has since died. According to Mrs. Van Hc-ose there were 22 spacers clamped to her hair at the time she incurred the burn. The firm of Mettler and Me Enaney represented Mrs. Van Hooser, and M. C. Coughlpn ap peared for the defendant. Visitor From Wisconsin.

OLDTIME FIDDLE CONTEST COMING Event to Be Held at Legion Old Time Dance at Armory. Get down that fiddle, you old- timers of North Iowa. Next Saturday night, in connection with the second 25 cent dance of the American Legion, there will be a contest to determine who is this region's most accomplished wielder of the bow. The contest will get under way at 8:30 o'clock and he closed shortly after 9 o'clock so as not to cut into the dancing time. Those wishing to compete have been instructed by R. C. Patrick, chairman of the Legion's committee, to forward their name and address to him at his office in the Foresters building. Mason City. No Entry Fee Needed. No entry fee will be necessary. Piano accompaniment will be provided by Bert Coe, pianist for Card's orchestra which will supply music for the dance. It has been more than 10 years since such a contest as this has been conducted in Mason City. At that time Grant Dutro was declared champion and Ed Douglas was the runner-up for honors. A board of judges will be named by the dance committee to pass on the relative abilities of the competing fiddlers, with the crowd acting as "supreme court" in the event of a tie decision by the judges. Two pieces will be played by each contestant, according to the co mittee's announcement Tuesday. One of these will be "Irish Washwoman," known to every oldtime musician. The other will be a number of the contestant's own choice. Prizes Are Planned. In addition to certificates for the first, second'and third place winners, there will be either cash or merchandise prizes to be announced later. Plans for other contests in connection with this weekly dance, revived last Saturday night with a crowd of almost 200 despite the subzero weather, are in the making. One is an old-fashioned clog dance competition, another a contest to determine the best modern dance couple and the best square dance couple on the floor. "We were heartened by the attendance at this opening dance," said Dr. T. A. Nettleton, a member of the Legion's committee. "It looks very much as if this institution, which had 10 years of distinguished success in this community, had come back to life with a bang. Our committee is determined to keep our dances worthy of the patronage we attract."

Governor Hoffman Cordially Received in Speech to N. J. Legislature. TRENTON, N. J., Jan. 21. (.?)-The impeachment bomb which sputtered threateningly after Gov. Harold G. Hoffman reprieved Bruno Richard Hauptmann turned out today to have been a dud. The governor, whose 30 day respite for the condemned Lindbergh baby killer stirred his foes to talk of impeachment, appeared at a joint, session of (lie legislature last night, was cordially received, and read a special message on social security. The Hauptmann case was not mentioned in either senate or assembly, and the democratic minority leaders gave no hint that any open criticism would be made of the chief cxecuti\'e. Hoffman's attitude on Hauptmann, who would have been electrocuted last Friday night except for gubernatorial reprieve, was somewhat clearer today after a new explanation of his interest in the case. The governor feels that someone else was involved in the baby murder, but he is ready to let whatever evidence may develop speak for itself. If the evidence should point only to Hauptmann. then the governor will no longer interfere with the execution. Letter Carriers Hampered. GARNER.
