REPORfJONES TO HEAD TREASURY Belief Held in Congress Is Declared 111 Founded at White House. WASHINGTON, Jan. 23. (.1?)--Belief 'among some democrats in congress that Jesse Jones might replace Secretary Morgenthau at the treasury was declared ill founded today at the white house. Rumors of impending cabinet changes have circulated repeatedly as the presidential campaign takes shape. Postmaster General Farley is expected to step out before very long, to confine attention to his democratic chairmanship. There was speculation at the capital whether a Jones-Morgenthau shift might be one of several moves contemplated. The democrats who spoke of it. asking that they not be quoted, said their information came from "apparently authentic" sources. 3 South federal Ave. Pre-/nvenfory Brings Wonderful Savings on Smart Winter Apparel!

DES MOINES. Jan. 23. (UP)-Death during 1935 removed 960 lowana from the state's old age pension rolls, Byron G. Allen, superintendent of the Iowa old age assistance commission, announced today. Contrary to popular belief, most pensioners died during the spring months, Allen said. Ho could offer no reason for the high mortality rate during March, April and May. "We have had many curious cases," Allen said. "Once a man died as he was handed his first pension check. On other occasions pensioners died immediately after receiving their first check." Didn't Realize Value. Recently Allen cited the case of a man and a woman in central east Iowa who had received three pension checks each. They left them in a drawer, not knowing that the slips of paper were worth money. Meanwhile, the aged pair almost starved to death. · Allen said the commission has a rigid checking system to make certain that the person whose name is on the check actually cashes it. Two men now are serving penitentiary terms because they cashed pension checks belonging to other persons, and kept the money. 15,000 on List. At present, there are about 15,000 persons on the commission's benefit list. They receive an average of $14.75 a month. Allen expects a similar number to be added when and if Iowa gets its expected $1.400,000 appropriation from the federal security board, to help carry on the program.

TIFFIN, Ohio. (UP)--Extensive experimentation toy Dr. Ira T. Wilson, head of the biology department of Heidelberg: college, at Lake Winona. Ind.. has proved that lakes fill up from the middle instead or from the shore as has been the universal belief. Dr. Wilson drilled six cross sec- ons across Winona lake to the original bottom of the lake, which involved digging in 80 feet of water and to total depth of 130 feet. The deepest layer of sediment penetrated was 51 feet. The cross sections made a profile view of the sediment of the lake which was found to be mostly calcium carbonate. Dr. Wilson worked, out an apparatus-for getting samples of sediment at all levels. The number of borings made was numerous enough to construct a contour map of the original lake basins, believed to be the first map of this nature. The contour map enabled Dr. Wilson to determine the amount of sediment in the lake. He found that approximately 45 per cent of the original lake basin is now filled with sediment. One- half the sediment lies in one-fourth the area of the lake where the water is the deepest, thus the sediment accumulates in deep parts of the lake three times as fast as in the shallow part. This indicated that lakes of size fill up in the deepest parts first and not very much around the edges which is contrary to the old belief. One of the most interesting- products of Dr. Wilson's experiments, which he has been conducting for the past two years, was the discovery of stratified deposits in the deltas of creeks entering the lake, indicating wide fluctuation in post-gla- cia] climate.

(Central Press Photo) RAILROAD CA T Evidence Completed in Suit for $2,990 Against Milwaukee. Presentation of the plaintiffs evidence in the 52,990 damage action brought by Milton H. Young, administrator of the estate of Findley D. Young, against the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paui and Pacific railroad was completed Thursday in Judge Joseph J. Clark's district court. The suit was brought in connection with the death of Findley Young, whose mangled body was found just east of Delaware avenue and north of Sixth street southeast shortly after 5 o'clock in the morning of Jan. 5, 1935, where it had been run over by a refrigerator car which a train crew was switching across the intersection of the two streets. Body Dragged 60 Feet. The plaintiff's contention is that Young was walking east toward his home along the north sidewalk of Sixth street southeast when he was struck by the refrigerator car which had been bunted by a. switch engine northward across Sixth street. According to testimony, blood marks appeared in the snow about six feet north of the sidewalk and continued northward along the west rail for a distance of approximately the body feet to the point where was found by the train crew when it stopped to investigate the impediment upon the track, which had made the car jolt "as if it had run over a board." The defense holds that the car was not bunted across the crossing and that Young was guilty of contributory negligence in not seeing the train and avoiding it. Attorneys in Case. L. A. Moe and John C. Robinson are representing the plaintiff, while the railroad's attorney is John N. Hughes of Des Moines.

(.P)--The state supreme court in a divided opinion today upheld a Jefferson county district court verdict awarding John W.

Wheatley had appealed the lower court's decision to the supreme court and asked damages totaling 520,515 for depreciation, destruction of property, lower rental value ot land and attorneys' fees in previous actions in the case.
