EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE DECEMBER 13 1933 MAY STRENGTHEN SECURITIES ACT Fletcher Say* Modification of Measure Not Being Considered. WASHINGTON, Dec. 13. Notice has been given by Chair? man Fletcher of the senate banking committee that If any changes are made in the new securities control act, It will be to strengthen rather than to bring about any modification. ' Thia declaration was regarded as going far to stamp out any prospect of modification of the new Roosevelt law providing strict supervision over new security issues at the coming session of congress, Proposes Amendment. Senator Fletcher proposed aa one amendment that the liability clause be strengthened to eliminate the "loopholes" whereby those issuing securities may be exempted from civil damages If they prove they acted In "good faith." "I think," said Fletcher, "that if the purchaser of securities suffers losses as a result of misrepresentation by the party Issuing the stock that the issuer should be held liable to civil damages and not be permitted to escape through the loophole that he acted In good faith. Need for Law. "There is a district need for this law. It lias not slowed up the pur- Â·chase of the Issuance of sound securities. Of course, there are a lot of energetic brokers anxious to exploit the public and they want the law modified but I don't think it will he modified. I don't think they can get away with It." Senator Fletcher said that President Roosevelt has asked that a close study be made of the working of the new act but that he did not want the whole law opened up for .vholesale revis'on. Fletcher said he expected to tr.ve Â·is recommendations on the securities act ready by the time congress meets. CharlesCityNews There are 26 municipal libraries in Tokyo, Japan. QIC I'm playing safe!

SOUTH F E D E R A L RANDALL ESTATE EVIDENCE ENDS Arguments Will Be Written; Injuction Case Called for Trial. CHARLES CITY, Dec. 13.--The case of Mrs. Nellie Randall against J. C. Campbell, administrator of the estate of Ed Randall of Marble Rock, was concluded as far as evidence was concerned yesterday afternoon. No oral arguments were mada and Judge M. H. Kepler instructed attorneys to submit them in writing by Jan. 8. The case lasted eight days during which time many witnesses were examined. Mrs. Randall was divorced from Ed Randall in 1928 but lived with him again and claims a third of the estate on the grounds of being a common law wife according to her petition. Several nieces and nephews are heirs to the estate. This morning the case of L. H, Henry against Minnie Rhinesmlth, Bert Rhinesmlth, her son, and Grant Coover, was called for trial. On Sept. 2 Judge T. A. Beardmore issued a temporary injunction in favor of Mr. Henry, who publishes the Charles City Daily Press, against the three defendants, restraining further publication of the "Shopping Guide," a weekly sheet cinsisting of a small amount of reading matter and the remainder advertisements. The petition seta forth that on Feb. 29, 1929, Mrs. Rhinesmith and son, Bert, who published the Twice- A-Week News, sold the subscription list and good will of their paper to the Daily Press and agreed in their contract "not to publish a newspaper, not to use the equipment of the Intelligencer Printing company in getting out any newspaper, not to sell or lease any part of the plant to anyone who would start a paper and not to be identified in any way with a newspaper during the life of the contract which is for 15 years." Mr. Henry paid 55,000 to the Rhine- smiths. ,Bert Rhinesmith supervised the printing of the "Shopping Guide" in the Intelligencer office with the assistance of Grant Coover and for this reason the owner of the Daily Press sought an injunction.

CHARLES CITY BRIEFS Safe Driving Hint By Joxva Motor Vehicle Department Courtesy C OMMON highway courtesy--that good old-fashioned kind that existed in horse and buggy days--will prevent many traffic accidents. .When you meet another fellow at an intersection,.don't insist on the right of way. If he knows you have it, fine, but if he is in an argumentative mood an accident will result unless one of you gives in gracefully. Give the pedestrian a break. Even though he may be in the wrong, slow down and let him cross the street safely. The mildest mannered men are often selfish boors when they get behind the wheel. Selfishness anywhere ia a vice, but on the highway, where life and limb are at stake, it Is doubly vicious. 20 More Men Working on Decorah Projects DECORAH, Dec. 13.--Twenty ad- Ittional workers were given em- iloyment today on the Dry Run iroject under the civil works pro- Tarn.
