.. MwAiuteKi TWELVE flASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JULY 18 H 1935 PARADISE CLOCK MADE BY BUYS Garden of Eden Depicted in Latest Work of Famous Clock Makers. PROTIVIN, July 18.--The latest work of the Biley brothers, widely known bachelor farmers who live near Conover in Winneshiek county, is a paradise clock. The clock stands eight feet and six inches tall, is from 20 to 40 inches wide and. weighs about 400 pounds. The clock is made of butternut, white ash, and white oak, all native woods of Fayette county obtained from the Bigler family of Wadena. An unique conception of the garden of Eden brings in Adam and Eve, the tree of life and the serpent and Carious animals and birds. Adam and Eve are in the center panel below the clock face and the serpent above with a tree on each side. Notable is the treatment of trees, trunks, branches of leaves including bas-relief in leaf motif worked between panels. The gargoyles are human vanities. Figures of birds and animals are removable pieces. Angel Garbriel and the trio, justice, friendship and truth are in the lower panel. This clock was put on exhibition at the beginning of the season. Only the main design is complete as the winter was too short for the entire conception to be worked out. Smaller details may be added from time to time. The gold plated clock face was made in Berlin. The imported works are the finest the brothers ever put in their timepieces costing $178. Chimes are tubular. Beery Enjoys Wrestling Tiger GOERINC ISSUES PARTY DECREES Orders Officials to Enforce Rules Against "Political Catholicism." BERLIN, July 18. (JP--Gen. Hermann Wilhelm Goering, minister of aviation and commander of Germany's secret police, today issued an order to criminal prosecution authorities to enforce strictly the existing decrees against ''political Catholicism." Goering said this Catholicism "must be overcome by positive tional socialism." Foreshadowing the end of all Catholic youth oganizations, he stressed the important task which the Hitler youth movement faces in the present clash between the philosophies of life. Today's decree said: "The minister emphatically demands that all authorities promote the Hitler youth organization." It continued with a claim that Goering, now as before, rejects the idea of a cultural fight against the Roman Catholic church but said, "all means will be invoked against those Catholic priests who misuse their religious authority."

He is president of the Councll_ Bluffs Junior Chamber of Com-" merce. Buster Keaton Now Involved in Tangled Relations of Sewells LOS ANGELES. July IS. (/!')-The aging but still agile figure of Buster Keaton bounced today into the already multi-tangled domestic affairs of the wealthy Sewell family of Beverly Hills. Mrs. Mae Elizabeth Keaton added the name of her comedian-husband to several others in the Sewell af- fair when she unexpectedly filed suit yesterday for divorce and brought a $200,000 heart balm suit against Mrs. Leah Clarapitt Sewell for allegedly stealing her mate's love. "Ridiculous," retorted Mrs. Sewell as she sat in a superior courtroom listening to arguments in her own marital litigation against her millionaire husband, Barton W. Sewell. The recent sensational "wife swapping" charges involved in the divorce battle between Walter Emerson and his wife, Jane, in which the two Sewells rounded out a strange marital quadrangle were recalled. Mrs. Keaton's petition charged that she found her fun-making husband and Mrs. Sewell together in a Santa -Barbara county hotel last July 4, and that tbisy remained there for three days before returning home.

UF--The trend toward farm tenancy gained intensity in Iowa during 1934. This was reported by the Iowa weather and crop bureau from figures obtained from assessors' reports. Tenants operated 5S.9 per cent of the total number of acres in farms during 1934, compared with 52 per cent the year before. Tenants ran 20,250,079 acres while owners operated 14,117,212 acres. The 1934 acreage in farms totaled 34,367,291, an increase of 56,778 acres, or a little under .2 per cent. The number of farms increased 1,398 to a total of 213,167 because of a sub-division of land into smaller farms. The size of farms decreased from an average of 160.5 acres in 1933,to 159.7 acres in 1934, a reduction of .8 of an acre a farm. Tie reduction in size of farms shows a slight tendency toward more intensified farming. This probably is explained by the city-to- farm population movement, bureau officials said. Most of the counties renorted in- a lead in tenant-operated farms. | Kewanee Star Courier. -for longer, safer tire-mileage to Riversides!"
