BOOK ON LINCOLN IS CALLED LIBEL Authority Calls Attention to Unkindness of Man's Biographers. NEW YORK, Feb. 12. ff--The trials and tribulations which beset Abraham Lincoln in life have their counterpart in the treatment he has received after death at the hands of his biographers. Presented in the school histories as a kindly gentleman, bowed in grief at the terrible sacrifices he was forced to call upon his countrymen to make, he has been called in biographies a picayune politician and worse. Emanuel Hertz. New York authority on Lincoln, celebrated the great emancipator's one hundred and twenty-second birthday today by calling attention to the "strange fatality that seems to be pursuing him so far as biographies are concerned." Mr. Hertz owns more than 3,500 books and documents on th,e life of Lincoln--about 1,500 more than there are in the New York public library--and he has read every one of them, including the latest, Edgar Lee Masters' iconoclastic work. This Is the Lincoln specialist's opinion of the recently published work by Masters: "It cannot be explained or excused from any standpoint and might best be judged from his indictment of John Brown as a horse thief and murderer. One cannot read It without thinking of his Spoon River anthology. The dead do not talk back. His is the hugest libel that has yet been uttered against Lincoln." Dr. Lowenstein Dies Instantly in Tumble From Roof of Garage CHICAGO, Feb. 12. (JP--Dr. Arthur Lowenstein, 49, member of the American Chemical society and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, died instantly today after a fall from the roof of the 11 floor north loop Motoramp garage of which ho was president. He formerly was vice president of ilson and company, and was connected with other firms. SENATOR SMOOT LAUDS LINCOLN Vice President Says Memory Will Outlast by Far His Critics. WASHINGTON, Feb. 12 (ff)--The memory of Abraham Lincoln was described today as triumphant over critics, cynics and romantic falsifiers in addresses by Senator Smool of Utah and Vice President Curtis. The vice president speaking at a luncheon celebrating Lincoln's birth and the anniversary'of the founding of Lincoln memorial university at Harrogate, Tenn., denounced biographers who would ."ruin the memories of their victims. These men may get on the front pages for a day," he said, "but they will not last long and their efforts will not succeed." Senator Smoot said in the senate that "critics and cynics have beaten in vain against the shrine Abraham Lincoln occupies in every American heart." Thompson Musicians Practice for Contest THOMPSON, Feb. 12.--A group of young persons from here are taking part In .the M. E. church choir and practicing for the musical and vocal contest to be held at Forest City March 5. This district .wide contest is composed of 65 churches in the northwest lown conference The Rev.

"Good Bread" Cheaper Than Before War, Is Claim Made by Baker WASHINGTON, Feb. 12. (JM--M. Lee Marshall of the Continental Baking corporation testified in the senate food price investigation "today that "good bread" Is cheaper now than before the war. During the last part of 1930, he said, the Continental company reduced its prices in 37 bakeries, or increased the weight of loaves in 63, or did both, out of a total of 83 bakeries. He said there was little Justification for charging mqre for whole wheat bread than for white bread. . Legal, He Argues. By S. B. TORGESON Worth County Representative. In' explanation of my vote of 'no" on the proposed constitutional amendment which will authorize the issuance of $100,000,000 of state primary road bonds, i submit the following: 1. It Is a gross violation of the constitution of the State of Iowa, and will, not be sustained by the supreme court of Iowa. It would have been economy for the legislature to have defeated it and saved the expense of approximately $300,000 which will be the cost of submitting it to a vote of the people. 2. It will not hasten the completion of the present plan of paving 5,000 miles of primary roads as the county bond plan is fully as effective and, in addition, the county bonds may be retired in a period of 15 years as againat 20 years under the state plan. Doesn't Limit Indebtedness. 3. It will not limit the indebtedness for primary road building more definitely than can be done by a simple amendment of our present law. Why, therefore, clutter our constitution of Iowa with undesirable and lengthy temporary material? 4.1t is not practical under present conditions to shift the burden from the counties to the state for road building- as it will only result in more bonds with a possibility of twice the present indebtedness for the people to pay. . , 5. It will result in an extravagant and uneconomical program of road building:. Suspends Constitution. 1. It is a gross violation of the constitution of Iowa as it tempor- ily suspends the constitution. Our constitution Is the fundamental and basic law of the state and is intended for all time, not for temporary propositions or emergency measures. The first clause of the proposed constitutional amendment reads, "Notwithstanding article 7 of the constitution or any other provisions of the constitution, etc." This is not a repeal of any part of the constitution Jut a temporary suspension of t. The attorney general of Iowa In his opinion to the state legislature stated that it is unconstitutional. If t be unconstitutional it will only create another expense of about iSOO.OOO to-the state in submitting the proposal to the voters in a spe- :lal election, and no benefits will accrue to the people of the state. Our official authority on constitutional law in Iowa, the attorney general; stakes his reputation and record as a constitutional lawyer upon this opinion. He will likely be sustained by the supreme court. The constitutionality of the road bond act of 1928 wag attacked by the attorney general. You will recall that it was by the supreme court declared unconstitutional. The state tuberculosis act was in 1930 defended by the attorney general and was by the supreme court declared constitutional. The attorney general, John Fletcher, has a record as a constitutional lawyer which makes him the outstanding authority on constitutional law in our state. This proposal will be submitted to the people with a cloud on its title. Why the expense? Doesn't Hasten Program. / 2. It will not hasten the completion of our program of road building. Hon. Fred R. White, chief engineer of the state highway commission, concedes this to be a fact. With county bonds, current primary road funds, and federal aid, the present road program of 5,000 miles of pavement will be brot to a finish as quickly as with a state bone issue. In addition, our bonds will be retired in 15 years and less by county bonds whereas some of the state bonds will be outstanding for a period of 20 years. My idea is that we should liquidate our road bond indebtedness as quickly as possible and while our primary road fund Is able to do so. The annual receipts of this primary road fund at present are sufficient to handle the present county Indebtedness with ease. Furthermore, our present state law guarantees to pay our county primary road bonds out of the state primary fund which is created by gasoline tax and motor vehicle license dues. The laws says: "The state highway corrfmission shall each year set aside from the primary road fund an amount equal to the interest and principal of such bonds maturing in such year." Could Bo Dono Otherwise. 3. It is not necessary to adopt the constitutional amendment to limit the primary road indebtedness to $100,000,000. That can be done by reducing tho present limitation on primary road bonds from 4'Xs per cent of the actual value of the taxable property of the counties to 3 per cent. I have introduced a bill in the legislature to fix the limit at 3 per cent. It la argued that the opponents of the constitutional amendment do not favor a limitation of indebtedness. That is not true. The present law would allow an issuance of about $163,000,000 of primary road bonds whereas my bill. If enacted into law, will limit tho issuance of bonds to about $108,000,000. It is not necessary, therefore, to clutter up our sacred constitution with undesirable temporary material to accomplish a limitation on bonds for primary road building. North Wouldn't Profit. 4. If we adopt the road bond amendment the county bonds will be taken over by the issuance of state bonds wherever the county bonds are callable. Tho burden will be shifted from county to state. However, Worth county's pro rata share of the state bond issue will be equally as great as the present county indebtedness for primary roads. We do not get out of debt by borrowing from Peter to pay Paul. Tho automobile drivers will pay the bonds whether they be stata or county bonds. If county bonds be retired, the gates will be open for bonds for secondary road building. Our mania for road building will get the best of us again and we shall likely have §100,000,000 of secondary road bonds in addition to 5100,000,000 of primary road bonds. More bonds means more interest. It is a matter of good stop this orgy of bonding by hindering the authorization or Issuance of additional bonds for. road building. Let us be- gin'to liquidate our present bonds and return to the pay-as-you-go plan. v ' Would Open New Vistas. 5. If the powers which have been in control of road building lii the past be encouraged by the adoption of the $100,000,000 road bond amendment they will dare to propose to us that we must not stop paving when 5,000 miles have been completed, but that 8,215 miles is a reasonable program aa it will connect all towns of a population of 150 or more. This is extravagance. It is even suggested that we may have a primary system in 10 years which would have a large mileage of perhaps 12,000 to 14,000 miles. I ask in all fairness is it necessary to use our state funds so lavishly ? Are there not other ways in which we can use our«gasoline tax, motor vehicle license fees, etc., than to spend it at the rate of $25,000 a mile and pave considerable mileage that · might not have traffic heavy enough to justify paving from an economic standpoint? In this age when there is such a demand upon the legislative bodies of Iowa to reduce the taxes on property in every possible manner and to equalize the burden which rests upon real estate, I will not be a. partner in the misuse of the funds that are the most easily raised and ' thereby continue the present burden of taxation on the people who own or desire to own taxable property. MAJOR GANNON FACES SENTENCE Son of Methodist Bishop I Convicted on Labor Law Violation. PASADENA, .Cal., Feb. 12. (IP)-Major Richard M.
