TWO % 3 j 1 I "i carnages and th,en the stately "glass coach" of Queen Wilhel- rruna. With the proud queen was someone just as happy--the Princess Armgard of Lippe-Biersterfeld, Bernhard's mother. The sun, bursting through cold clouds, leaped and danced from a thousand facets of the royal coach. Flags snapped in a winter gale and, as the procession neared the great townhall, billowed as if in salute. Down shouting lanes of close- packed people the coaches rolled) lackeys in Anee breaches beside the creaking doors. The sun glinted on the polished medals and buckles of ten thousand soldiers, lining the route. Forbid Throwing''Flowers. Police, struggling against the lines ol surging Hollanders, forbade the throwing of flowers. Cavalry and the mounted police escorts were first to reach the townhall, the white plumes of high brown shakoes streaming in the wind. Then came Juliana and Bernhard, to be followed by groomsmen, bridesmaids, mothers and a host of royal relatives and high personages. Because the burgomaster is not well, the ceremony in the town- hall was begun by his deputy, Professor Vanderbilt. Sitting before a scarlet draped table, the burgomaster, Dr. S. G. R.-De Monchy, then asked Bernhard: ' . Prince's Voice Strong; "Do you confess your willingness to take Juliana as your legal wife, to support and help her wherever she goes?" "Yes," replied the prince, in a strong voice. The burgomaster placed their right hands together and continued: "Then, after the Dutc'h law, I declare you to be married, and I am now entitled to address you as your royal highnesses." As he said this he struck a blow with a hammei', in the Dutch tradition. Just before the actual rites, Dr. tie Money had asked Queen Wilhelmina if she approved. She nodded primly. With the newlyweds seated, he launched into a speech detailing the ' difficulties of married life and expounding on the heavy task that lies before the couple. Juliana Almost Trips. Over at the church, while everyone waited for the ceremony to begin, Juliana almost tripped over a cushion placed in front of her armchair. But Bernhard, patently ill at ease, guided her safely to the seat and^then perched himself on the edge of a chair beside her. Four children held her flowing train. She was smiling happily beneath her tulle veil, dotted with silver roses. The German minister (there was friction between the Dutch and;the nazis prior to the cere? -- mur^ftS^r-ihcy-^sst to^ reach' the church., ' He took a second" row seat. Pass Around Candy. The wait was a long one and England's royal envoy, the Duke of Kent, wriggled restively. One thoughtful minister passed around a box .of chocolates. With Dutch thoroughness, copies of (he wedding program had been placed in the two huge armchairs reserved for the royal couple. At last came the ceremony and the words of Dr. Obbink: "The grace of God will"be your share: you are borne by the love and prayers of our people." The gray and black uniforms of German nobility; the admiral's garb of the Duke of Kent; the gold and braid of the diplomatic corps and the tailcoats and white ties of civil personages formed the background for the Groot kerk scene; the stolid walls of the "first class marriage chamber" looked down on the civil ceremony. Informal Reception. Witln the final boom of the organ, the. congratulations began in a steady, stream. There was an informal reception at the sacristy and then cries of "good' -luck r trailed princess and consort .as they drove back through the city over a winding route four miles long, Back at the palace, the gigglini Juliana and her husband plotter; a secret exit from the grounds and kept a deep, dark and happy secret the hour they will start on their honeymoon in the Tyrol. There they first met--in a snowbank. KGLO TESTING BEGINS JAN. 15. -ocal Radio Station Will Have Broadcast Test Week From Fri'day.

His. wife is sure to make him start takin' baths." - MASON. CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 7. ·1937 LAUNCH DRIVE ON DRUG USERS 3 eiping Police Raid Dens of Addicts; 100 Prisoners Reported Seized. PEIPING, (VP) -- China's long leralded campaign against narcot- c addicts and dealers was launched Thursday night with police raids on dens of addicts where 100 prisoners were reported seized. Reliable informants declared ·he captives, who had failed to obey stern orders to "be cured by New Year's or die!" would probably be shot Friday but municipal officials kept strict silence on execution plans. The raiding parties scattered through various parts of Peiping, estimated by authorities to have an addict population of 100,000. Dreamy slumbers of the inmate; of the dens were interrupted by the entrance of strong-arm police squads" which combed the dark passages of the illicit houses. Most of the prisoners were reported to be low-class Chinese and beggars. Gen. Sung Cheh-Yuan, chairman of the Hopeh-Chahar political council and personally directing the anti-narcotic campaign, was represented by authoritative sources as · inclined to show leniency to the addicts who expressed willingness to be treated. These, it was said, might receive life imprisonment instead of'death sentences. , Dealers who disobeyed the governmental order will probab'ly be shot summarily, officials predicted.

RICHARD CROOKS On a recent visit to Akron. Ohio, he went out to the Firestone employes' farms and became so interested in the fall plowing thai he spent several hours driving one of the tractors. "Like thousands of other Americans I have had a rather dim idea that when I retired I might go back to the farm," said Crooks "This afternoon's work has convinced me it isn't such a bad idea Farm work seems to have been considerably lightened and rnucl easier than it was a few years ago Driving a pneumatic rubber tirec tractor makes plowing easy anc speedy.

The boys waited through Sunday, hoping Busse's curiosity would lead him to make inquiries. When it didn't they finally presented him with a movie camera outfit, complete with projector. Then and only then he confessed that he had been completely baffled by their silence, and had asked his wife-if. she knew of anything he Iiad done to offend them.

TACOMA, Wash., (,P)--Coldest veather o( the winter Thursday larmed the parents of kidnaped Charles Mattson who believed the 0 year old boy might be suffering rom exposure. The thermometer , . sank to' 15 bove zero during the night, as the bductor ignored opportunities to eturn the victim or collect $28,- Ofl ransom. Dr. W. W. Mattson, the boy's ather and a prominent Tacoma ihysician and surgeon, was more :pprehensive that Charles, recov- ring from a cold when seized Dec. 17, might be seriously affected if le were being kept in an outlying poorly heated shack as some other ddnap victims have been. Dr. Mattson has made careful ireparations for the boy's ^care vhen and if he is turned loose. Would Go 'to Hospital. If Charles were released 'at a prearranged place and found either by the family or federal agents, here was reason to believe he vould be placed in a hospital in- tead of being taken to' the large, old English style Mattson home. Kb might be freed on a lonely country road-^--like George Weyer- laeuser was--and discovered by a ·esident who might take him di- ·ectly to the house. Precautions NEW ADVERTISEMENT SEATTLE, W--The Seattle Times carried a new advertisement in its personal column --fourth of a series believed to be from the family of Charles Mattson of Tacoma, to his kidnapers. It stated: Mable--I am giving 'all the notes. Police arc not intercepting them. I accept your message of identification. All requests have been carried out. 1 will do as instructed without anyone knowing.--Ann. ately. Reporters deserted the smoking vacant lot campfire around which they have shivered for 10 days. . Within a few hours, the lack of a check'on the Mattson home produced half a dozen rumors the ransom payment had been made and the boy returned. Return Is Denied. By telephone, -Dr. Mattson cate- [orically denied the return, asserting: "There's no one by that name (Charles) here. I wish there were." Dr. Mattson while delivering his prepared statement, obviously was suffering from great strain and appeared to fear strongly for his on's safety. The statement was typewritten and unsigned. In view of the lapse of time and because of our desire-to leave nothing undone to effect the safe return of our son, my wife- and I at this time request that all members of the press in this vicinity make no further surveillance of any kind or nature whatsoever of my movements at any hour of the day or night and that my home be not watched," it stated in part. "Will Realize Anxiety." ' x x x I feel certain, however, lhat all parents at least will realize the terrible anxiety which my wife and I are suffering and our desperate desire to see our son once more." Officers : of Utah and Nevada were stirred to activity by the report of a CCC foreman at Mesquite, Nev., of an automobile containing a man, woman and young boy. He thought the boy was Charles Mattson.

Applications are now s e n t through, the Indianapolis, fnd., office. The committee will also suggest a revision of relief administration regulations to apply to larger unit farms.

Well informed circles said the holy father was eager to undertake all work his doctor, Professor Aminta Milani, would allow. As an indication o f - h i s continued interest, prelates said the pontiff was carrying on his fight against communism from his sickbed. He was said to hope the eu~ charastic congress in Manila in February would help check communism's spread in the Philippines. ,vere being made to pi-event the child being overly excited. 'I've got to consider that boy "irsl," said the doctor. "I don't know what condition he will be in when he is found," Never Was Robust. Charles, while not delicate, is slight and never has been robust. When he was stolen from the liv- ng room of his home he wore clothing suitable only indoors-slue knickers, a blue jacket and house slippers. A report Wednesday from merchant in Shelton, Wash:, indicated the kidnaper may fi have nought heavy underwear -arid a sweater for him. Unless this were true, Charles was illy attired for the weather. The frigid night passed with no word from the kidnaper, although all avenues to the Mattson family lome were left entirely unguarded so the kidnaper could freely collect the money and liberate the boy. Assured of Safety . The kidnaper was assured of safety by complete inactivity of all law enforcement agencies. The department of justice, state patrolmen and city police all have acquiesced to the plea by Dr. Mattson that no action be taken which might endanger the life of his son, held captive 11 days. Even the corps of newspapermen and photographers which has been at the Mattson residence since Dec. 27 was absent Thursday to give the kidnaper an open road to the family. No Interest in Spencer Clews. Officers here manifested "no interest" in "kidnap clews" from Spencer, Iowa, San Francisco, and Las Vegas, Nev. There was no indication the ransom has been paid. The boy had not been returned. Belief the payment still pended was based on a second voluntary statement to the press given Wednesday by Dr. Mattson. In it he asked newspapermen loifollow the example of law officers in allowing him free rein-- in his dealings with the kidnaper. The doctor requested the watch be removed from his home, stories of advertisements believed to be contact efforts be stopped and his personal activities be left free of surveillance. Comply With Request. Observers immediately pointed out no such request would be necessary if the ransom had been paid. Newspapermen complied with the doctor's plea almost immedi- Truck Crashes Train.
