Oil Tycoon Dies WIFE OF SHERIFF PREVENTS BREAK (Continued From-Page 1) the'head about a dozen times with the flatiron and cord until he fell to the floor. Jailer Christiansen said that he was not unconscious but that he did not move after striking the floor. Prisoners Found. Believing the jailer was knocked out, the men started immediately for the entrance. In the meantime Mrs. Robertson had heard the scuffling, and when she heard no response from the jail in answer to her calling out, she immediately summoned Sheriff Robertson from his office, and police. The prisoners were found in the jail corridor and placed in solitary confinement. Morgan was being held here on a charge of larceny from an automobile in the night while Kaufmann, parole violator, was being held on a charge of auto theft. He was returned from Waterloo earlier in the week, where he was found with a car stolen from W. A. Simonson, as it was parked on Federal avenue. Jailer Christiansen's condition was fair Thursday, although his scalp was badly lacerated. No fracture of the skull had been found. NAZIS ATTACKING ON THREE FRONTS (Continued From Pa^e 1) Catholic newspapers be eliminated, as part of the nazi drive against "political Catholicism." Last April 25, Amann published an edict giving newspapers three months to show they agreed with nazi party principles. That time now has expired. Steel Helmets Resist. The dissolution of the Steel Helmet unit in western Mecklenburg was ordered, it was officially announced, because "resistance has been offered by members of the Steel Helmet to orders issued by state officials and officers of the (nazi) party." Most particularly, the complaint was made that the members of the war veterans' unit concerned had not participated in the studies of aerial protection ordered by the administrative leader of the district. Whether the entire Steel Helmet organization may be dissolved has not been ascertained, although various rumors have said such dissolution is likely. Col. Henry Huddleston Rogers, 55, Standard Oil millionaire, died Thursday at Southampton, N. Y. Dog Learns Not to Wag His Tail With Electric Fan Close OSKALOOSA, July 25.

Yesterday, however, he backed up to the fan too close and wagged his tail. Finland appeals to us as the type of country in which wrestling might be honest.--Richmond Times-Dispatch. MASS PIONEERING USUALLY FIZZLES (Continued From I'JIRB 1) been hard boiled, but Engen never succeeded in getting more than a handful of them colonized in Paraguay, and the colony had dwindled steadily to this day--though never quite as flat a failure as "Tex" Rickard's and "Alfalfa Bill" Murray's. The Mennonites are of some- wKat sterner stuff than "Tex's" and "Alfalfa Bill's" respective crowds. Natural Pioneers Remain. It i s to be noted that a small pick out of "Tex" Rickard's and Fred Engen's aggregations hung on--and maybe there were a few out of "Alfalfa Bill" Murray's. Perhaps this means that pioneering is selective; that a pioneer must choose himself--that he cannot safely be "wished" into a mass movement, like "Tex's" or "Alfalfa Bill's" or the Matanuska Valley experiment. The Dakota pioneers were pioneers because, encouraged, they were natural pioneers. There may not be enough of that type of folk for a mass movement. Maybe, at any stage of the game, it must be gradual. SHERIFFS OF IOWA HEAR POLICE CHIEF (Continued From Page 1) poor Homes, ignorance and environ, ment. Although he had only praise for the state's institutions, he maintained that they should be the last resort in the correction of a boy. Save State Expense. "If we can steer a boy over a period of years which is his making or breaking we will have saved the state considerable expense and saved the boy," said Mr. Wagner.

Mr. Wagner spoke briefly of the work being done by service clubs in different communities in aiding the youth. He also spoke of the changing attitude of the public about officers using their guns on criminals and conditions prevalent in beer gardens that are calling for more strict enforcement. E. F. Brown Speaks. E. F. Brown, Des Moines, radio engineer in charge of the state broadcasting system, under the attorney general's office, spoke of the work of the three stations at Des Moines, Waterloo and Storm Lake, and two more proposed stations in the southern part of the state. He complimented Sheriff Jim Smith of Cedar Rapids for having the best receiving equipment in the state. County Attorney Frederick B. Shaffer of Mason City spoke on cooperation between the police department and sheriffs office and the work of the sheriff's office in helping the county attorney, which included the perfecting of evidence and service of notices and returns.

Kauffman, special mediator in the Des Moincs bakery strike, today awaited submission by the Master Bakers association of what he described as "a final proposal" to the 250 striking union employes.
