OOf ,PLAZA M E R I C A ' S F I N E S T O C E A N F R O N T H O T E L IN DAY'S NEWS Dr. Alice L. Wynekoop was convicted and sentenced to 25 years In prison at her second Chicago trial for the slaying of her daughter-in-law. (Associated Press Photo). HIGHER COURT CAN SAVE DR. ALICE (Continued from PBEC 1) to have been 11 to one for conviction. Two jurors were reported to have voted on the first ballot for the extreme penalty--death in the electric chair--which Prosecutor Charles S. Dougherty indirectly demanded in his closing arguments. He said: "I ask you to do unto this defendant as she did unto Rheta Wynekoop." Seeks Loan for Appeal. When the verdict was read by Foreman Fred Oviatt, oldest member of the jury, there was a mur- mer of apparent protest from some of the spectators. Dr. Wynekoop stared straight ahead. A moment later she was wheeled away to an anteroom where Dr. Catherine and Walker chafed her hands and whispered to her, but it was the mother and not the children who did the consoling--striv- ng to reassure them that it was not she who chloroformed and shot Rheta. Walker Wynekoop called the verdict a "dirty-stab," adding that he was getting a 55,000 loan on some jroperty to finance an appeal. Ur. Catherine said it was "an outrage." Surdine Gardner of Indianapolis, lather of the dead Rheta, "apparently was.-completely satisfied. ""Twenty-five years," he exclaimed; 'Justice has been served.'.' Accosted by Sister.. Prosecutor Dougherty, who had Â·idiculed the defense suggestions that a prowler might have slain Rheta or that the girl had killed herself to "spite" her "in-laws" was accosted by the defendant's sister, Mrs. Mable Fairclo, who ran up to him, crying: "She's innocent. You know she's innocent." "I know in my heart that she's guilty," he replied, "but I do feel sorry for her." Attorney Smith, who implied in lis closing arguments that the doctor's son, Earle, might have committed the crime and might have used an airplane to preserve the alibi that he was miles from the scene, said he couldn't understand how such a verdict could have beeu reached in so short a time. W. W. Smith, his associate, professed to be ''amazed." ..; BANKERS KNEW AIRMAIL PLANS Charge Made as Committee Learns Fess' Son Was Hired as Lawyer. WASHINGTON, March 7. /P-Testimony received by the senate banking committee that J. P. Morgan and company sold 4,500 shares of United Aircraft stock shortly before government cancellation of the airmail contracts was cited in the senate today by Senator Robinson (R., Ind.), as evidence that the "international bankers" had advance information on the action. Robinson's remarks followed testimony before the senate's special airmail committee that the United Aircraft and Transport corporation had hired Lehr Fess, son of Senator Fess (R., Ohio), in the interest of "expediting" passage of the Watres airmail act in 1930. Paul Henderson; vice president of the company, who tojd of hiring the senator's son, said Fess had earned his lawyer's fee of "?3,000 or $5,000" In two days. Henderson also testified that J. Bruce Kremer, former democratic national committeeman from Montana, had been employed by United. The Watres act provided for the airmail system set up by the Hoover administration. KNUTSON OUT FOR STATE GOVERNOR (Continued from pan 1) :rom taxes in the higher brackets .trough a net income, it also proposes to raise fourteen million dpl- .ars through a retail sales.tax." Sentiment Growing, He Says. "A year ago," Mr. Knutson said. : only a voice here and there was raised in the general assembly in favor of a gross income tax. Recently, when the bill came up for consideration in the special session it got 21 votes in the senate and 44 in the house. Give us a little more time, put the right men jn the next general assembly and we'll make the bill law. Then and not till then will Iowa take its rightful place as a leader for real tax revision in all states." Mr. Knutson is a hardware merchant at Clear Like. He and his brother, George, have owned and operated the store which bears their name ever since their father died in 1919. In announcing his candidacy for the gubernatorial nomination, Mr. Knutson said it was not because of any desire on his part that he be given the honor but because he believes the issue in this state is still tax revision. "I am basing my candidacy on the gross income tax issue and win or lose it will be the issue, not me, that should get the credit." Knutson served six years in the general assembly, a member of the 40th, 41st and 42nd assemblies from 1921 to 1927. He was formerly mayor of Clear Lake and president of the Iowa Retail Hardware association. He is a master Mason chancellor commander of the Knights of Pythias and a past district governor of Rotary. At present he is the president of the Iowa Hardware Mutual Insurance company. His family consists of Mrs Knutson and one small child. He has been a republican.all his life. SENATE PASSES PREFERENCE ACT (Turn ta p*(Â« 2, column 1) committee, told the house the report had been filed In December. He also stated that the Iowa exhibit had made a very good impression on the people of other states. The lower branch also defeated 47 to 53 a concurrent resolution sponsored by Mercer of Johnson and McCreery of Linn providing for the appointment of an interim committee of two senators and two representatives to study highway patrol, motor vehicle and traffic regulation and report recommendations and suggested legislation to the next session. Called Unnecessary. It waa contended by Representative Sours of Floyd that the committee was unnecessary because there was sufficient independent thought among the members to enact as good a bill as any committee couid recommend. The house passed a measure requiring the filing of rates schedules and rules with the state insurance commissioner by insurance companies associations and associations prohibiting rebating or discrimination. The bill would prohibit the offet of any special inducement! to obtain policies., - . Â· Â· - Â· ' -':-;Â· - ' Â· ;:.

Signs Liquor Bill. Legal sale of hard liquor and wines today awaited the opening of state owned stores provided in a bill giving the state sole monopoly on the retail sale of such beverages. Governor Herring yesterday signed the liquor control measure which suspends the state's prohibition laws, but does not affect those relating to search and seizure. Two steps remain before the law can be made operative. It first must be published and the three commissioners must meet approval of the senate. Names to Senate. Governor Herring immediately sent to the senate the names of his appointees to the liquor commission. They are H. M. Cooper of Marshalltown, Dick R. Lane of Davenport and Bernard Manley of Mason City. The commission, before setting up the Iowa stores, plans to visit several other states and Canada to study the operation of similar plans, making it probable that it will be about 60 days before the first Iowa store is opened.

(Continued from pace 1) ship for two years, with a legislature domlnantly republican. His admin- stration was not signalized by the carrying out of a single policy of mportance to which Mr. Turner's name car. be attached. "Mr. Turner feels that unless he a nominated the republican party a doomed to destruction. He even foes so far, in his campaign declar- itions, to assume that the party must be purged of all republicans who do not agree with him, and support him in 'this contest My feeing is entirely different. "The party is bigger than any individual. It will continue its long and glorious record of service after we, who are candidates, having passed from the scene. I am even willing to admit that it might recover from another state administration headed ay Dan Turner, although, remember^ ing recent Iowa political history, l may be permitted to have a few doubts on this subject. Appeals to Voters. "I am making my appeal to the republican voters of Iowa who recognize the necessity for new and aggressive leadership, who do not believe that party primaries are created to give individuals an opportunity to further their personal interests, and who are willing to put party welfare above personal arobi- tion. "As I have already said, I do not believe in the use of personalities in a primary campaign. This does not mean that I am afraid of a fight, i am not much good at running away, and I intend to meet the Issues of the primary campaign as they arise, fearlessly and without dodging. 1 shall not, however, wage a campaign which will make it impossible for my fellow republicans to support the party ticket in November, regardless of who is nominated. If other candidates desire to base their claim for support upon a policy of rule or ruin, the responsibility is theirs, not mine." THREE MEN ARE HELD BY POLICE Claim They Saw Sioux Falls Holdup; Officers Find Money and Gun. Three men who claim they saw the Sioux Falls, S. Dak., holdup Tuesday morning were arrested about 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon as they came into Mason City. Chief of Police E. J.

Code authorities meeting elsewhere were informed by NRA officials meanwhile that while "no definite policy has been determined, NRA is "sympathetic" to price control provisions as made possible in "open price associations."
