--^ V- ' TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 14 H 1937 mended an appropriation "in keeping with the apparent need." V "Save for the drought," he explained, '"Iowa would today be able to discontinue relief." If the state mortgage 'moratorium law is not extended, lie told the legislature, "thousands of practical and dependable farmers would lose their farm homes." Outlining a possible source o£ revenue for construction of farm- to-market roads, Kraschel said that the slate should levy a "proper highway usage tax upon trucks using our highways and the increased revenues thus produced be allocated to the Iowa state highway commission" for construction. Gas Tax Receipts. Together with gasoline tax receipts now allocated-to the commission for such roads, and federal appropriations, he said, "it is not unreasonable to expect that such a plan would eventually pr vide 10 million dollars annually." The $70,000 annually which the state pays for office rent, he said, would finance "over a relatively short period ol time" construction of a new state office building. Enforcement of truck rcgula- . tions and highway safety measures, he told the assembly, should be placed in a single motor vehicle department, with an enlarged highway patrol empowered to enforce all highway Iraffic laws. At. present, the state railway commission has the enforcement of a number of truck regulations, : : Some state control board insti tution : buildings, Kraschel said are firelraps. He stated the institutions are overcrowded and tolc the assembly "it would seem de sirable now to start a carefully planned building program." In tin same section of his address, th governor suggested that wealth; convicts ,be required to pay fo their own upkeep, at penal insti tutions. For Packing^ Industry. As he has done since he firs became prominent in Iowa poli tics, Kraschel advocated a stal promotion program for the low packing industry. "We can and should raise, finis and pack the world's finest con fed ham and bacon," he said, we would treat this opportunit as California has promote oranges, it would greatly increas our incomes." Chain store tax legislation, 1 said, "is within 'the realm i proper action on the part of this ( any other legislature." Kraschel told of the decrease i $ i ti 1 .laries which teachers were irced to take during depression ears, adding: Improve Education. It is quite generally agreed lat we should greatly increase standards of the teaching^force our elementary system. This ill necessitate higher salaries. It ill, also, involve increasing the acilities of the Iowa Teachers' ollege, which trains the greater art of our teaching staff." After slating ihe educational ystem should be, "divorced from olitics," Kraschel said: "If the superintendent of public nstruction is'" to continue as the ne co-ordinating influence be- veen state and the public school ystem and the public school sys- em with the rest o£ the educa- onal system, it seems desirable lat the selection of the incumbent lould be the responsibility of the oard of education or some other on-partisan body created for the urpose of dealing with educa- ional problems. We believe in the ame principle for selecting the udiciary." TOLD OF DEATH OF HER HUSBAND Mrs. Johnson, Partner of Explorer, Brave as She Gets News: LOS ANGELES,. (fP)~Mrs. Osa Johnson bravely heard Thursday that her husband and hunting partner, Martin Johnson, had died- of injuries suffered in the crash Tuesday of a transport plane near Newhall. Johnson, noted camera hunter STOLE $1,700 FROM COUNTY 'ormer Polk Deputy Auditor Recashed 23 Payroll Warrants. DES MOINES, (/P)--County Attorney Carl Burkman said Thursday that Lyle E. Gemricher, 35, former Polk county deputy auditor, had confessed in a signed statement to recashing 23 county payroll warrants totaling $1,700. Burkman said Gemriciier, who left office Jan. 1, admitted cashing the warrants which had already been cashed by the persons to whom they were issued, bu' through an oversight,did not bea: the county treasurer's stamp showing cancelation. , The county attorney said Gem- rich-:r indorsed the warrants with his own signature and cashed them at banks and cigar stores. When the warrants were returned to the auditor's office, Gemricher removed the signatures with an ink eradicator, Burkman said. Gemricher was held at the county jail in default o£ ?7,500 bond. on African game trails, died early Wednesday, the second fatality of the crash which occurred Tuesday morning. Dr. Sydney Burnap broke the news to Mrs. Jphnson as she lay in the Hospital of the Good Samaritan. With Mrs. Johnson was ler mother, Mrs. W. S. Leighty, vho arrived by plane from Chiago Thursday. Asked about Mrs. Johnson's reactions, Dr. Burnap said: "She is carrying on. She is a wave woman." He added that Mrs. Johnson is 'doing very nicely." She suffered a fractured knee and concussion. To Question Crew. James Kinney, federal air line nspector, said the plane crew would be questioned.

"Theft was the motive," Sullivan said in a terse statement. "He was let into the apartment by her (Mrs. Case) on the pretext he was going to wash the windows. That was before 2 p. m., just how long I can't say." Blood-smeared fingerprints on he apartment woodwork and loodstained pair of trousers found n an incinerator chute were the ·lews that led to the -arrest of Jreene at his Harlem home lours nfter the killing. Skull Was Crushed. A blood stained hammer, also aken from the incinerator, was established by police as the instrument with which Mrs. Case's skull vas crushed. Frank Case, 30 year old Cornell university graduate now em- loyed by a hotel supply com- rany, found his wife's lifeless airplane left to tell after an accident of their story this sort," Kinney said. "Results of a hearing should be most helpful in eliminating the danger zones in the west . . ." Pilot William Lewis told rescuers he was beset with motoi and radio trouble while trapped in the fog.

W A S H I N G T O N , (/P)--T li e Brookings institution told the senate's government re-organization committee Thursday that $30,161,000 could be saved annually through consolidation of federal money lending agencies. Consolidation of the federal housing administration and Home Owners Loan corporation alone would result in saving of $24,500,000, the report said. The report attracted immediate attention at the capitol in view ol President Roosevelt's estimate that yearly savings under his entire regrouping program would approximate only $30,000,000, unless congress should abandon many functions. The institution, a private organization for economic research, submitted the report--first of a group covering the whole government-o Chairman Byrd (D-Va.) Could Be Greater. "It is my personal guess," said ;yrd, "that this saving can b made even greater because th ecommendations cover agcncie mploying more than 25,000 per ons at total operating expense aggregating more than $00,000 000 annually."

LONDON, (IP)--Isrnest Aldrich Simpson, former husband of Mrs. Wallis Simpson, has filed a slander suit against Mrs. Joan Sutherland, alleging she said Simpson received a sum of money to permit his American wife to divorce him, it was learned Wednesday. Mrs. Sutherland is the ,wife of Lieut. Col. A. H. C. Sutherland who has been decorated by the government with the Order of the British Empire and also the Military Cross. Simpson declined to discuss the case except to confirm that notice of the suit had been issued and served on Mrs. Sutherland. The suit, sources close to Simpson said, was the result of Simpson's efforts to quiet talk of his div o r c e - a n d alleged payment o money which arose after the temporary decree was issued to his wife at Ipswich Oct. 27. Simpson was declared to have been irritated by discussion in both the London financial district and in Mayfair society circles. Simpson's attorney refused to disclose details of the suit beyond the fact notice had been served. NOXZEMA PROVES WONDER CREAM!

They retained the Brookings in- ititutiori to draft a functional sur- /ey with "efficiency and economy" the objectives, he said. He emphasized the recommendations ivere a basis for action ' by the committees and "are not to be construed as the sense of the committee." "Upon the president's invila- ion," Byrd said, "I have discussed :he matter with him and was advised by him that the recommendations of the senate committee for abolition and consolidation might be used effectively to supplement his own investigation." Senator Byi'd has criticized some of the president's recommendations, opposing creation of new cabinet posts, an increase in cabinet salaries and abolition of the comptroller general's office. Split Wide Open. I The house, split wide open over the president's recommendations, was called on to decide whether to set up a special committee on reorganization legislation. Leaders were confident of shoving to passage measures to establish a temporary committee of seven which also would serve with senators on a joint committee studying the revamping problem. Some prominent democrats like Chairman Buchanan (D., Texas) of the appropriations committee, thought a permanent u n i t should be created to "nose" continually able to prune the executive branch of the government by holding down appropriations and keeping expenditures under close surveillance. Buchanan said a reorganization committee ought to be able to report out 30 or 40 bills in its first year and that its first measure should provide for abolition of 15 to 20 federal agencies. Chairman Ramspeck (D., Ga.) opposed a permanent committee on the grounds it would usurp three-fourths of the jurisdiction of the civil service committee. I-'.-tliral A v e n u e Mason City.
