MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE. 'AUGUST ELEVEN DEWEY REFUSES TO SET HEARING Federal Judge Acts in Plea of U. S. for Injunction Against Film Firm. ST. LOUIS, Aug. 8. (IP)--Federal Judge Charles A. Dewcy of Des jloincs, declined today to order a hearing Aug. 19 on a department of justice injunction suit against Warner Brothers Pistures, Inc., and other major motion picture producers, which sought to prevent them from negotiating new contracts. The temporary injunction was sought by the government to restrain the producers from continuing an alleged violation of antitrust laws by refusing to supply top rate films to three first run motion picture houses here. Judge Dewey, assigned in the absence of the two St. Louis judges, said he could not see that the matter complained of in the suit constituted an emergency. Following- a telephone conversation with Asst. Atty. Gen. Russell Hardy in Washington, the judge announced he would order the hearing only if soeeificially directed to do so by the United States circuit court of appeals. Defendants in the injunction suit, all but one of them named in the anti-trust indictments, are: Warner Brothers, Inc., Vitaphone Corporation, First National Pictures, Inc., Vitagraph, Inc., Warner Brothers Circuit Management Corp., General Theatrical Enterprises, Inc., Paramount Pictures Distributing Co., Inc., Paramount Pictures Distributing Corp., and RK-O Distributing Corp. Vitagraph was not named in the anti-trust indictment. Mabie Gets 6 Months County Jail Sentence on Statutory Charge Peter R.

Murphy Plans Prosecution of Unlawful Sellers of Insurance. DBS MOINES. Aug. S. i.l'i--Ray Murphy, Iowa commissioner of insurance, today warned Jowans to "be wary of purchasing insurance" in unlicensed benevolent and mutual benefit societies and associations. Murphy declared he had been authorized by the attorney ijneral's of- fic to say that preliminary steps "toward prosecution of individuals and organizations doing an unlawful nsurancc business'within this state" will be begun within sixty days. "Most of th e so-called societies actively soliciting insurance through agents in this state do not come However, th t . certificates submitted provide only for a maximum amount, the only obligation being to pay whatever might be actually collected by an assessment, less, in some cases, the expense of collection. "The effect is, that assuming the honest and efficient operation of the:!.; organizations, and strict compliance with the terms of their contracts, the members in a great many instances are paying for a kind and extent of 'protection' they are not getting."

Also named as defendants were the Ceiiar Rapids Gazette company and Charles and Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Dodd. Belle I'laine, circulation agents for the Gazette.

Summertime for picnics--Sunday school picnic, Grangers' picnic, service club's picnic. Usually the entire family goes and takes its lunch along. Oftentimes these lunches are pooled about large community tables. There's a fine democracy at the average picnic. Grandma and Grandpa, as well as the parents and children, enjoy these outings. For -some it is about the only exposure to sunshine during the whole year. One sees these outings at their best among the rural iolk, though the automobile has brought people from long distances, and sometimes those of different ' stanaards and ideals than those used to assemble from within more restricted areas. At such gatherings one can ob- serv wide varieties of parent-child relationships -- the tied-to-mamma young child who heeds certain wis3 counsels cf his parents and observes certain reasonable rules of conduct, or the child who defies his parents and shows little or no regard for the rights and feelings of other persons. Sometimes, of course, the child over 8 or 10, too closely supervised at home, may take advantage afforded by a picnic to be heedless or rebellious of his parents. As a ru:c. however, the conduct of the child at a picnic pretty accurately reveals his type of home training--whether he had learned the alphabet of good citizenship there or had not. Also at the picnic the toddler and runabout reflects his training on the neighborhood playground. The timid, nonsocial child in the home community is more timid and non-social at the picnic. Yet these picnic? do have social contributions for the average child. When the picnic place is near a swimming place there arc grave hazards. Let us beg o£ those responsible to provide adequate lifeguards. Some children and youth who can barely swim will- take too great chances at some times. By the way, let us see to it that our children beyond the age of S or 10 learn to swim. Thereby we not only will make thcin safer, but we also will afford them means of wholesome social fun and exercise. Of concern to many rural parents is the public dance which follows in the evening. Often it is badly supervised, and to it will come those who are intoxicated--one reason why so many of our best rural citizens oppose dancing as a recreation. Why should not these social functions of the neighborhood be j sunervised. so that better moral safety for our youth can be guaranteed? Licenses Are Given to 42 Drivers at Hampton HAMPTON. Aug. S. --Forty-two drivers' license? were issued here Monday to applicants taking examinations. No applicants were rejected. The average man's idea of comfortable circumstances would be to have enough money to be scared to death about a share-the-wealth pro, 1 gram.--Snrincficld (Mass.) Union.
