EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, AUGUST 1 ·§ 1935 HUNT CARPENTER FOR MUTILATION Former Friend of Doctor's Widow Sought Following Fatal Operation. CHICAGO, Aug. 1. (JFl--Mande- ville Zenge, 26, Canton, Ho., carpenter, today was sought by the police of three states for questioning in connection with the death of Dr. Walter J. Bauer, Kirksville, Mo., victim of a mutilating operation. Before he died in a southside hospital, Dr. Bauer told the police he was forced to drive from an Ann Arbor, Mich:, hotel by a man who had registered in the Jennings hotel as "T. S. Jones" of Chicago. He said "Jones" performed the operation on him with a pen knife. Widow Is Questioned. Dr. Bauer's widow, who was Miss Louise Schaffer of La Grange, Mo., a nurse employed in a Kirksville, Mo., hospital, hurried to Chicago and was questioned briefly. She was in an hysterical condition but told the police that she had kept company with Zenge for several years before her marriage to Dr. Bauer on July 14. The search for Zenge was intensified after Lieut. Van Loomis of the Michigan state police telephoned the authorities here that hotel employes in Ann Arbor had pointed' out a strong resemblance between a picture of Zenge and the missing hotel guest who had registered as "Jones." C. M. Parker of the Missouri state highway police, said that Zenge had quit his job on a federal locks construction job at Canton. July 26, without collecting wages due him and that he had not been seen there since. Arrives Grief Stricken. Mrs. Bauer, 23, arrived here grief stricken last night, accompanied by several Kirksville, Mo., police. She told the police here that early last week she saw Zenge and that he seemed surprised when she told him she was married. "He asked me if I were happy," she said, "and when I told him I was he just wished me luck and drove off in his car." The victim was driven to a south- side filling station in Chicago early yesterday after the operation was jerformed. Harry and Harold An- jerson, attendants, who drove Dr. Bauer to a hospital told the police a man jumped from the car as it reached the station and fled. Dr. Bauer died several hours later from shock and loss of blood. Lftilities Companies Offer to Start Big Line Extension Plan WASHINGTON, Aug. 1. UP1- tforris L. Cooke, rural eiectrifica- ion administrator, has disclosed hat utilities companies have offered to start-a huge line extension plan, spending "40 or 50 cents" to every government dollar. The plan would involve expenditure of ?238,249,000. Cooke said 95 per cent of the na- tion's electricity Is supplied by private utilities and that the private firms probably would handle the same percentage of the government program of extending lines to the farmer. A committee representing utilities firms estimated that S113.685,- 000 would be spent for new lines, meters and transformers at a cost of $1,356 a mile. No definite rate standard has been reached, but Cooke taid companies "charging 30 cents a kilowatt, or even half that, wcn't get any loans from us."

"Ding" Darling, chief of the biological survey, today said the nation's duck hunters wiil have 30 days of shooting this fall. Darling said the regulations had been approved by President Roosevelt and" that he expected them to save 50 per cent of the increase in ducks this year. Shooting over baited water or land will be prohibited. No live decoys cati be used at any place. Only Two Zones. Zoning- of states by seasons will be eliminated and the nation will be divided into two zones, northern and southern. Shooting will be permitted only between 7 a. m. and 4 p. m. Possession of more than one day's bag limit, which was reduced from 12 to 10, will be illegal. A three shell limit on auto loading and repeating shotguns will become effective. Oct. 21 to Nov. 19. The season will open in northern states Oct. 21 and close Nov. 19. In southern states it will be from Nov. 20 to Dec. 19. Iowa is in the northern zone. Darling said the restrictions were the only alternative to a closed season. "We've killed more ducks than we have hatched every year for the last 35 years," he declared. He estimated 24,000,000 ducks will fly south this fall and 12,000,000 be killed by hunting and "natural causes." $544,400 Allotted " to Iowa for Relief WASHINGTON, Aug. 1.
