PHOENICIAN CLUB CONDUCTS MEETING. Miss Myrtle Niedert, 404 East State street, entertained the Phoenician club Wednesday evening. Miss Bee Lynch led the lesson, reviewing Beverly Nichols' "For Adults Only" and James Thurber's "My Life and Hard Times." M'ARTHUR DRAWS FIRE BECAUSE HE FOUGHT BUREAU Cedar Rapids Farm Editor Attacks State Corn-Hog Committee. Criticism of the state corn-hog committee, of which Senator William McArthur of Mason City is a member, for alleged opposition to the Iowa Farm Bureau federation, appeared in Ray Anderson's column, "Shucks." on the farm page of the Cedar Rapids Gazette Wednesday. This "bureaucratic committee," as it is termed "disrupted Iowa's shortlived agricultural harmony by heaving a sizable monkey wrench into the smooth meshing gears of the newly constructed production control machine," the article states. According to Anderson the state committee issued a "vague and unsubstantiated charge" that the organization had used the corn and hog project as a means of increasing membership. After defending the local corn- hog committees for using the county agents of the state as the centers of activity in the signup campaigns Anderson maintains it is significant that this attack comes immediately following the tabling in the house of representatives of the McArthur bill which seeks to divorce the Farm Bureau from the extension department. "Senator McArthur," he adds, "author of the bill, is a member of the state com and hog committee. He also is president of the American Farmers Mutual Insurance company which at one time operated under the wing of the Iowa Farm Bureau federation. "Mr. McArthur's insurance company and the Farm Bureau federation severed business relations some time previous to McArthur's suc- I cessful candidacy for the legislature. "It is reliably reported tTiat the McArthur bill will be modified and reintroduced at Tne present special session." Membership Campaign Started by Auxiliary Mrs. Claude A. Thomas, membership chairman of the local unit of the American Legion auxiliary, has received word of the state wide membership campaign being conducted by the auxiliary in which prizes will be offered.

To know it's clean, and looks clean. To know it will stay as you arranged it. And to know you have no dandruff. That's what moistening your coinb with a few drops of Danderine will do. And no amount of dry- combing will ever do. Nearly all hair needs the help that Danderine gives it. A dash of Danderine morning and night when you comb it, makes an amazing difference in Uie way any hair looks all the time! Vihea youVe washed your hair, a little Danderine will keep it from going helter-skelter. When you pay a dollar for a wave, Danderine will help you keep it. It isn't sticky dressing, or an oily tonic, and it doesn't leave a telltale odor. Its fresh fragrance is gone so quickly after applying--but not that very marvelous effect of freshness and cleanliness! With all the care a woman gives her hair, it is a pity to omit this last touch that means so much. It is no trouble. Yet you can hardly believe anything so mild and delightful as Danderine could bring such a change in the condition and appearance of hair and scalp. Just try it.

This is to be were married in Decorah at reduced by 15.per cent under the wheat program. Thirty-nine per cent of the wheat farmers of the state, claiming a base acreage of 144,940 acres, signed up in the first campaign. Machinery for signing up additional farmers and acreage is ready in the 1,450 county wheat production control associations which were formed in the initial wheat campaign. The reopening can apply to 13,000,000 acres of uncontracted normal wheat land. No Campaign Planned. , No campaign is planned this time I but any farmer who has not signed' j a contract and wishes to do so now j will have the opportunity. The sign- l up is now underway. State exten- ! sion service directors in the wheat j states have been notified and they i in turn notified each county wheat production control association. The farmers are to contact their county associations. The second 1933 payment is fixed at S cents a bushel, less local costs. The per bushel payments for 1934 | and 1935 cannot be set until the processing: tax rate for the next season is set. The processing tax for | the present season is 30 cents a j bushel and payment.? to farmers are I at the rate of 28 cents a bushel, less : local costs, the 20 cents payment ; having been made and the ramain- j ing S cents yet to be paid.

Compare QUALITY a? well as prke GUARD AGAINST SNATCH RACKET Minnesotans Take Steps to Prevent Abductions by Underworld. ST. PAUL, March 1. /P)--Money has become a living curse for many Minnesotans since the snatch racket has mulcted ?300,000 from St. Paul residents in eight months. The fight to get it has been succeeded by a fight to keep it unsullied 'by fingers of the underworld, which has dipped deeply into the fortunes of the Hamms and the Bremers; less profitably into the treasure of Bonn, Gleckman and Rutman. Alarmed by the successful abductions of William Hamm, Jr., millionaire brewer who paid 5100,000 for his freedom last year and Edward G. Bremer, wealthy banker whose release cost $200,000 this year, several wealthy Minnesotans .hope to thwart designs of the underworld with armed bodyguards. Hormcl Has 25 Guards. Jay Hormel, of the Hormel Packing company at Austin, Minn., is one of these. Fearing he might be "next" on the list of kidnapers' victims, Hormel has employed a corps of 25 guards, armed them with pistols and launched them on a course of training. The majority of the 25, however, will be employed at the Hormel Packing plant, scene of a recent labor disorder, though five of the men will be charged with the duty of protecting Hormel's person and his home. The men comprise a hand picked squad. Others among the wealthy class, particularly in the Twin Cities, have taken similar steps to Insure their safety from kidnapers by hiring body guards. Officer Trails Hamm. j Hamm, for months after his abduction, went about with a personal guard. Bremer, whose father, Adolph, is a personal friend of President Roosevelt, and principal owner of the Jacob Schmidt Brewing company, is trailed always by a federal department of justice operative these days. Whether the agent's presence is for purposes of protection has not been disclosed. Meanwhile, men who might be prey for kidnapers, have been given the published advice of Minneapolis police on how to avoid that danger. Authorities Give Advice. Authorities advise avoid flaunting wealth and display; shun dark streets and areas likely to be unsafe; verify telephone and telegram messages that call for their departure from home alone, and keep grounds well lighted at night. Install alarm systems in the-home and garages. Haskell Bohn, son of a wealthy refrigerator manufacturer, was seized in 1932 in the dimly lighted yard of his father. The family paid 512,000 for his freedom from Verne Sankey, erstwhile felon who hanged himself in a Sioux Falls, S. Dak., penitentiary. Morris Rutman, St. Paul dress shop owner, was kidnaped by men who invaded his home about three years ago. His imprisonment and torture cost him $5,000. Leon Gleckman, St. Paul finance company head, paid 560,000 to kidnapers lit 1931. Most of that money was recovered. Sound motion pictures have just been introduced into Ethiopia, .the first showing, which included an animated American cartoon, taking place in the presence of the emperor and his court.
