.^ '^.sa^^ \ TWO MASON GITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 19 · 1937 breeze quickly carried away the fumes and the pickets re-formed. The men picked up unexploded bombs and threw them' into the plant. - . A truck which attempted to enter the plant at 8 a. m. was turned back. Several hundred Briggs workmen huddled across the street from the plant but made no attempt to penetrate the picket line while the sound truck passed up and down the street blaring forth the announcement, "No work at Briggs today." Frankensteen said the union had decided to close the plant because 350 employes were discharged for union membership. Policemen Withdrawn. By 8:30 a. m., order had been restored. The crowd of workmen had disappeared and the picket line had dwindled. Most of the policemen had been withdrawn. 1 . A, union mass meeting was called for Germania hall. Frankensteen said the U. A. W. would maintain its picket line until the Briggs company "reinstated all men discharged for joining the union," established "a wage scale equivalent to c o m p e t i t o r s of Briggs," and "recognized the U. A. W. as .the sole bargaining agency for collective, bargaining." A Briggs company official said that not more than 50 of the pickets were Briggs employes. At union headquarters, 'the number of Briggs employes involved was es-; timated at 300. "Going? to Flint." One of the pickets said he was a glass worker from Toledo. He said ten Toledo glass workers participated in the demonstration and added that "we are going to Flint." Another picket said that many of the men were employed in the Dodge plant. There is no strike at the Dodge factory, and the union professes to maintain amicable relations with Chrysler corporation. Inspector Berg said he doubted that the gas bomb which blinded him was thrown by police. He said he had been informed that "some of the strikers carry tear gas guns.

IOWA CITY, (3)--The University of Iowa's venture into student night life--the Silver Shadow night club--is still packing them in. And what is move, university officials and students agree that it is still -a "dry" night club. "Our only real problem is lack of space," Ted Hehder, manager of the club, declared. Started at .the University Memorial union more than two months ago at the request of the student newspaper editor, the Silver Shadow boasts a regular floor show, a 12 piece orchestra, and expensive decorations and lighting effects. The only thing lacking in' the night club atmosphere is the absence of "set ups" or beer on the tables. Some Drink Before. Students who dance at the Silver Shadow on week-ends saj that "some of the crowd does little drinking before going there and there probably are a few whc slip away between dances for c nip or two." ' But as one student expressed it "it's obviously not the place t even appear if you've been drink ing much and nobody does." Entertainers at- the club students who ystarted strictly a amateurs, but "turned profes sional" during the Christmas va cation to accept an engagement a a Chicago loop hotel. $1 Cover Charge. The cover charge o£ the Silver Shadow is $1 a couple. A coup! of orangeades or glasses of plai ginger ale costing about 50 cen more is the usual expense of a evening at the club. Prof. R. H.

I know that fewer have bee going out of town and there ha been a noticeable lack of ac cidents." might get some money really harming anyone." without The note to Miss Myllicent Bartholomew, the child actor's aunt 'and guardian, said "It will be too bad for Freddie" if police were notified.

The droll Yankee comedian returned the sage of. Waukegan's compliment with "The suavest, cleverest and coolest performer on the air is Jack Benny." Today, they're at swords' points all because Fred cast aspersions at Jack's violin playing and a sizzling transcontinental word battle has developed which will be aggravated considerably when the host of "Town Hal! Tonigrhl" renews the verbal barrage during his broadcast with Portland Hot'fa and Peler Van Stccdcn's orchestra over WHO Wednesday at 8 o'clock. Recently, a 10 year old youngster, who was a guest or Allen's during his "Stars of Tomorrow" children's revue, an all-child talent parade, played "The Bee" by Franz Schubert so remarkably Fred stated that Jack Benny ought to be ashamed of himself. To the Sunday night comedian, these were "fighting words." During his next broadcast, Benny dispatched an "open letter" to the "Town Hall Tonight" jester. It stated that Jack had not only played "The Bee" when he was 10, but had played it extremely well. Of course, Fred was loathe to believe this statement and conducted a nation-wide poll during his air appearance to ascertain if there was anyone who had heard Jack play the Schubert opus, or if there was,anyone who even knew of an individual who had seen the Benny recital. There was not a single affirmative answer to Allen's inquiry, and the issue became serious when even Benny's radio cast turned against him and commenced lauding "Town Hall Tonight." Besides revealing the latest developments in the "strained" relations between the country's leading comedians, Fred will play host to a professional talent array in the second half o£ his hour show Among those to be heard are the Three Madcaps, a Negro swing :rio featuring vocal imitations o: wing-band instruments; Hal Gor day.

The sheriff said he acted on instructions of federal agents. The kidnaper of 10 year old Charles had a dark beard.
