MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, AUGUST 7 PH 1935 THREE CHECK BASIS FOR ADAMS'PENALTY Iowa's Corn-Hog Officials Study $3,040 Assessed on Wheat Pact. . DES MOINES, Aug. 7. (/W--Iowa corn-hog officials today were checking the basis for the largest compliance penalty ever assessed an Iowa farmer in the two year old corn-hog program. The farm administration in Washington penalized W. P. Adams, owner of the 6,400 acre farm near Odebolt, 53,040 for alleged non-compliance with his 1934 corn-hog contract. The specific charge was that Adams planted wheat on his 467 retired acres last fall before restrictions on retired acres were relaxed. He was fined 15 cents a bushel. Ralph Smith, secretary of the state corn-hog committee, today was gathering detailed information on the penalty, pending Adams' probable appeal to the Sac county corn-hog committee. The penalty was assessed on the basis of the compliance supervisor's findings. Smith said if there had \ been a mistake in checking Adams' f compliance or if the penalty is ex' cessive, adjustments will be made · through the county committee, state · office and Washington officials. Adams' fine will be taken from his second payment corn-hag check. Total benefit payments due Adams were not divulged. Adams signed the 1934 contract but did not join this year's program. Adams is vacationing in Canada. R. D. Adams, his son, said formal notice of the penalty had not been received, but he declined further to discuss the matter. ·» J Dennis Murphree and former Congressman Paul B. Johnson. Senator Long (D.-La.) was represented as having supported the candidacy of Johnson. Culled Beginning of End. WASHINGTON, Aug. 7. (/Pi- Rhode Island's election of a G. O. P. congressman was hailed today by republicans as a portent of what will come later. Democrats rejoined that the balloting yesterday lacked national significance "It is the beginning of the end for the New Deal," said the republican leader, Representative Snell, mentioned as a possibility for presidential nomination next year. Representative Crowe of Indiana, as vice'chairman of the democratic congressional campaign committee, said the result was "probably just a quirk where a district is returning to the party it used to support. Western and central states--and the south of course--probably will be solid for Roosevelt next year. If he has any losses they will be in the east, and New England particular- Chairman Bolton of the national republican congressional committee said voters of the first Rhode Island district "gave conclusive evidence that they are awake to the unconstitutional and unsound trend of the new deal. They responded in such overwhelming numbers as to leave no doubt that the feeling was not local but was indicative of widespread resentment toward new deal philosophies and practices." Other comment: Representative Maverick (D.-Texas): "It's just like the south going democratic. The trouble is that congress has been staying here too long and the new deal is getting some undeserved unpopularity. Congress should go home." FIRE IN ENGINE ROOM PUT OUT Hour Battle Staged With Flames Aboard Cruiser U. S. S. Quincy. QUINCY, Mass., Aug. 7. (/T)--A F ire in the engine room of the recently launched U. S. S.

Gould, general manager of the Fore River plant, said the fire was believed to have started in the switchboard of the mam cable room, a 60 by 80 foot section at the aft end of the engine room. Officials later unofficially estimated the loss at $100,000. TALK OF ROBBERY , AT CELEBRATION (Continued From rase 1) five minutes. A naif dozen bystanders saw the bandits walk out. Used Unusual Tactics. The bandit who drove his car up to the door before the others entered the bank honked his horn and appeared to be watching someone across the street. Helen and Sophie Sailer saw him grin and concluded that he was attempting to flirt. It was these covering up tactics employed by the bandits which made nearby persons oblivious to what was happening in the bank. Quickly the bandits fled. The car was repork' 1 seen later at Webster City but today evidently all clews had faded out. Twenty Iowa highway patrol cars were notified by radio soon after the robbery, the new organization being called into service of this type for the first time. llth Iowa Robbery.

Hayes declared that during 1933 he learned "extensive frauds" had been committed upon property own ers of Sioux City by which the city had "been robbed" of $750,000 on paving contracts. He said he obtained co-operation of the Iowa highway commission, established the fact that the paving did not meet specifications, and instituted suits against the contractors, among them the Lytle Construction company for damages. He said trial of the first suit resulted in a S*,000 verdict against the contractor and surety company in question. The suspended mayor further declared that prior to filing of the suits the Inter-Ocean Reinsurance · company, Cedar Rapids, and the Lytle investment company, had acquired "by purchase, or otherwise," a large number of paving certificates which had been issued in payment for the paving projects.

INTEND TO HALT JEW MOVEMENTS Nazis Will Stop Stream of "Undesirable Elements" Into Berlin. . BKRLIN, Aug. 1. /P)--An official nazi announcement proclaimed today that further "measures" would be taken to halt a stream of "undesirable elements," especially Jews, pouring into Berlin for refuge. The announcement said the measures already have been drawn up by Count Wolf Hendrick von Hell- dorf, head of the Berlin police, and Julius Lippert, nazi commissioner for Berlin, to stem the migration from the provinces--"greater than ever before." No indication was given as to the precise nature of the steps to be taken. Brown-shirted storm troopers parently were counted on to play a major part in the renewed drive on "state enemies." Once powerful, then under cloud and weakened after the 1934 "blood purge," the storm troops recently have become more in evidence, parading in Berlin and other cities. The newspaper Der Angnlf said 'The storm troop has jumped into the fight against Jews, politica Catholicism and reactionaries." Hans Hinkel, dictator of non Aryan art, announced that Amnri' can and other foreign motion pic tures written, acted and produced by Jews, would still be accepted b) nazis. owa Falls Arranges Store Door Delivery of Railroad Freight IOWA FALLS, Aug. 7.--The hree railroads serving this city will naugurate store door delivery of reight.
