f t MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, AUGUST 8 1935 SEVEN PUSHDESMOINES RIVER PROJECT Murphy, Utterback Agree to Introduce Resolution in Congress. WASHINGTON, Aug. 8. ue--The first step toward obtaining federal funds for a 515,000,000 navigation project on the lower Des Moines river was taken here today by an Iowa delegation as Senator Murphy (D.-Iowa) and Representative Utterback (D.-Iowa) agreed to introduce a resolution to authorize an army engineering study of the proposal. Murphy said he expected no difficulty in having It passed. It would authorize army engineers to bring up to date the study of the feasibility and costs of the project intended to make the river navigable from its mouth up to Des Moines. Confer With Murphy, L. S. Hill, Iowa works progress administrator; Alex Fltzhugh, executive secretary of the Greater Des Moineg association, and Horace A. Brown, Ottumwa, Iowa, waterworks superintendent, conferred with Senator Murphy and several members of the Iowa house delegation. They hoped to have a conference this afternoon with Harry L. Hopkins, federal works progress administrator, to explain the desirability of including the navigation project in the new work relief program. "It would provide work for about 7,000 men for two years," Fitzhugh said, "and would fit into the administration's goal of low cost projects as much, of the labor would be for manual, unskilled work, while most of the materials necessary are readily at hand." Series of Locks. The project calls for a series of locks and low concrete dams on the river. The delegation brought in- dorsements from Gov. Herring and the Iowa executive council, the state planning board, state conservation commission and Charles E. Hearst, president of the Iowa Farm Bureau federation. Among the advantages which would accrue from the project, Fitzhugh said, would be substan- tially'lower rates on movement of grain and other products. He said water transportation advantages now permitted shipment of grain into Chicago from Minneapolis, a distance of 983 miles for 12.5 cents, from Davenport, 603 miles for 6 cents, from Kansas City, 730 miles, for 10.3 cents, while by rail from Des Moines to Chicago, the rate was 19.5 cents a hundred weight.

(/B--Prison sentences ol 180 years each were meted out today to Mrs. Blanche Dunkel and Mrs. Evelyn Smith toe murdering Ervin J. Lang. The sentences were fixed by Judge Cornelius J. Harrington, who heard the trial of the pair without a jury and yesterday found them guilty of slaying the 28 year old grocery clerk who became the paramour of his mother-in-law, Mrs. Dunkel. The state had asked the electric chair for both. Such a fate for a woman would have been without precedent in Illinois. Judge Harrington directed that the women be placed in solitary confinement every July 6, the anniversary of their crime. He said they could not be paroled until Mrs. Smith is 106 years old and Mrs. Dunkel 10-1. He said they showed coM indifference to death in the electric chair. Such death, he said, would be "a merciful end for you. That would be a better punishment than that which I am going to mete out to you." To each of the prisoners he said, "under the penalty I am going to give you, you will be suffering a living death," Blanche Dunkel was in a state of collapse. She cried. Tears streamed ciown her face. She didn't raise her head. Her chin quivered nervously.
