MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE SEVEN' F.R, RAPS LYNCH LAW SUPPORTERS Says New Prosperity Close at Hand Built on Ne\y ' Social Values. WASHINGTON, Dec. 7. (,1-President Roosevelt is convinced the nation will not tolerate lynch law. Speaking to the federal council of Churches of Christ ir- America last night, he made plain his belief that America seeks a government of its own "that will he sufficiently strong to protect the prisoner and at the same time to crystalize a public opinion so clear that government of all kinds will be compelled to practice a more certain justice." The younger generation, the president added, "is not content with preachings against that vjle form of collective murder--lynch law." Mentions No Names. In a rebuke, softened only by his failure to mention names, Mr. Roosevelt condemned "those in high places or in low who condone lynch law." Gov. James Rolph of California recently gave verbal approval to the lynching of two kidnapers at San Jose. The judicial function of government, the president reminded his listeners, is the protection of the individual and the community through quick and certain justice. That function, he added, in many places "has fallen into a sad state of disrepair." "It must be part of our program to be re-establish it," he said. Turning to a common objective ot church and state, President Roosevelt described it as "a more abundant life." Itiind in Hand. Churches and governments, he said, can work hand in hand toward a new definition of prosperity --prosperity "socially controlled for the common good." He assured the council that it can be "a prosperity built on spiritual and social values rather than on special privilege and special power." , "From the bottom o£ my heart, the president said, "I believe that this beloved country of ours is entering upon a time of great gain. That gain can help Include a greater material prosperity if we take care that it is a prosperity for a hundred and twenty million human beings and not a prosperity for the top of the pyramid alone." Harry O- Voller, 27, Chicago theater ticket agency operator, was cliarged in a. warrant with being nn accessary in tho robbery a year ago of Mae West, actress, of jewels valued at 517,000.

DES MO1NES, Dec. 7. (.Tj--Completed copies of the tentative draft of the hard liquor bill were to be placed before both the house and senate liquor control committees at their meetings this afternoon. The first portion to the bill, already in the committee's hands, outlines the setup of the commission under the state monopoly plan. It creates a. commission of five mem' hers named by the governor, pro vides for the establishment of stati owned stores, permits designation of specially designated distributor and would give the commission ful power to import, manufacture, sel and distribute hard liquor within the state. Irfivy No State Tax. It is understood that the bi would levy no state tax upon th liquor, the state to derive its rev enue from profits which would no exceed 10 per cent net. The establishment of state owne stores would be left to the tion of the commission, instead o fixed upon a population basis. There is also contemplated an vidual permit to he issued by the ounty clerk. The cost of this per- it would be 51 and the proceeds ould revert to the issuing county. Each purchase of liquor by an in- ividual would be entered upon the ack of the card, giving the liquor omraissioii a complete check on ndividual consumption at all times, hrough its state stores. Iycal Option Clause. While the bill is said to contain a local option clause, the members if the liquor committees arc far rom accord on this feature. If the oca! option feature finally is agreed ipon, it is said that it will be upon municipal, rather than a county asis. An attempt will be made by a member of the house committee to lave the state go into the distilling Business. The member points oul this would be one method of keeping down prices in tho drive to elim- natc the bootlegger. Under Jiigid Control. Another member of the commitce is openly opposed to the state mon opoly plan and wants the spirik handled by private concerns or in dividuals, as formerly, but uncle state supervision and rigid control The object in both committees 1 to thresh out their differences with in themselves, so that when a bi: is reported, it will have the unite support of the committee member?

IOWA HOUSE GETS OJBEHIND INFLATION «*i*«V-;-.: :'-.' -(Continued 'From Faje 1) ·who contended .that wages .would be reduced one-half:under the'inflation plan since it waa proposed to cut the value of the dollar in two. Representative Foster of Cedar, Tensen of Audubon, Donlon of Palo Alto Doran of Boone and Durant of Hancoclc declared that the resolution was merely supporting the program of Secretary of Agriculture Wallace and asked that the assembly back up this program. Representative Donlon said "it is up to us to do our part just as the NRA- is doing its part." Representative McKinnon of Henry said the present financial system had failed, that we are going to have a new monetary system and that the resolution would aid the present and others in knowing the attitude ot Iowa. . Vote Against Resolution. Members voting against it were Representatives Burgess, Ellsworth, Fabritz, Goode, Hartman, Johnson, Lichty, McCreery, McFarlane, Moore o£ Harrison, Mooty, Peet, Sheridan, Schmitz, Willis and Miller. Absent or not voting were Avery, Brady, Fuelling, Koch, McDermott, Moore of Benton, Porter. Reed, Snyder, Wieben and Zylstra. Among the house bills reported for indefinite postponement was the Foster-Alesch measure which would permit the governor to declare an embargo on farm shipments o£ farm products out of the state and authorize him to call the militia for enforcement. Indefinite Postponement. Other bills recommended for in-1 definite postponement were the Osborn measure permitting: county boards of supervisors to bid at delinquent tax sales when no other bids received; the Schmite measure permitting refundment of assessment already paid this year for improving county secondary road systems and the Grell-Bouska Lookingbill measure imposing a tax on They would appoint a county secretary whose salary could not exceed that of either the county clerk, recorder or auditor. Counties under 25,000 could make an appropriation of 53,000 for this work and over 25,000, 54,000. The cities and towns committee reported favorably on the Sheridan bill permitting cities over 8,000 to make a levy not exceeding 2.5 mills for police purposes. The house agricultural committee introduced two bills, one recognizing the Iowa Swine Producers association, to promote the welfare of the Iowa swine industry and the orderly marketing of swine. The bill carries an appropriation oC $4,250, Fix Bread Weight. Another bill would eliminate the % pound loaf of bread and fix the tolerance in weight at from 4 to 10 per cent. On motion of Representative Rice of Keokuk, chairman of the house tax revision committee, the lower branch tomorrow will resolve itself into a committee of the whole for a. general discussion of'tax revision. No one particular bill will be up for discussion. Rice explaining that every member would be given an opportunity to set fortli his ideas on the subject. The members of the revision committee believe this will do much in expediting final consideration of the subject when it formally reaches the floor some time the first of the week. Defer Weed Bill. Administrative rulings on some details of the contract are expected to be brought to Iowa from Washington next week by Ralph Moyer, federal representative for the state. When the signup work is completed, Evans said, the work of the county committees will be complete. Administration of the acreage and production allotments will be turned over to township committees, composed of farmers residing in that township and elected by their fellow residents. Select One Member. This committee of three will select one member to represent it in the country control association. Directors of this county control association will name three or more persons to serve as the county allotment committee. The county control association will be empowered "to enforce the- contract, but- little need of "policing" is anticipated, Evans said. Names of farmers signing the contracts coupled with their-estimated production, on which benefit payments will be based, will be published in formal notices in local papers. Thia publicity, Evans predicted, will deter any person who might hope to estimate his production in abnormal amounts and thereby obtain inequitable cash benefits. McArthur on Committee.
