TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 30 Hi 1935 WANT TO AVOID PARTY DISCORD Iowa's Republican Editors Urge Pre-Primary Meet To Pick Slate. DBS MOINES, Sept. 30. /P)--The Iowa Republican Editorial association has suggested that a pre-primary conference of republicans select a list of candidates for .state offices in order to avoid party discord. The proposal was contained in resolutions adopted by the organization of 75 republican editors of the state, who Friday sponsored a republican rally at the state fairgrounds which was addressed by Theodore Christ! anson, Minnesota republican congressman. The editors stated they are "disturbed by the constantly accumulating evidence of graft and corruption in public affairs and alarmed by the huge increase in state expenditures and the consequent increase of an already burdensome tax load. Unity of Thought. 'It is vital'," they declared, "that republican unity of thought and action "be restored to furnish organized resistance to the forces of destruction to which the thoughtful citizens of all parties may repair. "Iowa i.i overwhelmingly republican in thought and principle, but the republican party, split by internal discord, conflicting ambitions of party leaders and the selfish purposes of special interests has been driven from power and responsibility. "Party organization has been disrupted, party u n i t y destroyed and party principles buried in the wastes of party conflicts. "The situation calls for the sacrifices of personal ambitions. Return to Ideals. "The crisis confronting us de- AN EXPERT At Work... . . . with a complete stock of genuine watch parts made for your watch, crystals that fit.

The editors declared that in their opinion "party principles and pur- 'poses should be declared by the party rather than by candidates and that availability, fitness and character of candidates should determine choice rather than internecine warfare." "We urge," they declared, "that a pre-primary conference or convention of Iowa republicans be called to canvass the situation, prepare a concise statement of party purposes r.nd svggest for selection at the slate primary election candidates for state offices. Urge Calling Caucus. "In our j u d g m e n t the delegates to last year's republican state convention would constitute a fine, Impartial membership for such conference and we urge the republican state central committee to call lhat body for the purpose herein set forth." The editors pointed out Uiey do not "seek to close the door of opportunity" to any candidate and that they believe "any candidate worthy of party honors and political preferment will cheerfully submit his claim to such a conference and abide by its decision in pood spirit."

Another topic about the weutlicr w i l l apiX^ir in t h i s paper next week. 5. TORNADOES It was sultry for the third of June. On the west bank of the Mississippi, where the river sweeps around Beaver island to the s o u t h west, lay the l i t t l e town of Camanche. The streets were empty and quiet, for it was Sunday. Men dozed i n c h u r c h . A l l t h r o u g h t h a t ong, hot a f t e r n o o n in 1800 people stayed in the shade and s t i r r e d no more t h a n necessary. Nobody worried about the d a r k cloud in t h e west at supper t i m e . "A shower w i l l cool us off," they -said. And then, almost before any one noticed il, the storm was upon them. The. sudden r a i n , sharp l i f i h t - ning, and heavy t h u n d e r sent people scurrying for shelter, it was icarly 7 o'clock when out of the vest came a roar l i k e a h e a v y t r a m asslng over a bridge. A huge, )Iack, funnel-shaped cloud, t w i s t i n g and turning, was coming s t r a i g h t oward the town. Farm b u i l d i n g s n its pain were shattered. Trees and grass were torn up by the roots. The air was f u l l of dust and ·ain and f l y i n g slicks. Even w h i l e the f r i g h t e n e d people v«re h o p i n g t h a t the c e n t e r of the storm would pass by, the w h i r l p o o l of w i n d s t r u c k the town. B u i l d i n g s vcre sucked up ami t h e n dashed to he ground. A new brick store Deemed to explode. T h r o u g h t h e , rash of f a l l i n g walls could bo heart! the .screams of t e r r i f i e d vomen and c h i l d r e n , the eries of he wounded, the m o a n s of t h e dy- ng, and always, above all, the con- itant bellow of the wind. In less than three, m i n u t e s tho ornado had l e f t Camanchc and crossed the river to Illinois. Evcry- hlng was in confusion. The town was a jumble of shattered buildings, dead animals and broken trees. 'Darkness I m m e d i a t e l y closed over he scene." Soon, out of the general gloom, came the glimmer of lan- crns as some of the survivors Milled themselves from the wrcck- ige and tried lo h e l p those pinned mrler the r u i n s . T w e n t y - e i g h t persons were killed, more t h a n SO h u r t and h u n d r e d s left homeless. The cyclone formed a few miles east of Cedar Rapids, where two storms came together and w e n t v h l r l i n g eastward. The black cloud vas shaped l i k e a cone h a n g i n g down from the sky. At limes it would rise for half a mile and then settle down to destroy everything ; I U . I I N S OF ( i l d . V N E L L COLLEGE AFTER. THE CYCLONE move with the speed of a railway t r a i n , t h e n stop and w h i r l in one place, and then shoot forward a mile or two in a few seconds. From Iowa the tornado traveled across II- linoi.s and Lake Michigan, but the greatest damage was at Camanche. Wind is a common feature of Iowa weather. The pioneers, accustomed to the protection of h i l l s and forests back east, complained about the strong w i n d t h a t .seemed to be always blowing across the prairie. They p l a n t e d groves around their houses to check the force of storms. 'Insurance agents found ready buyers of cyclone policies. Kvery summer, somewhere in the state, roofs have been blown o f f , sheds f l a t - tened and trees broken. The w i n t e r blizzards are a l m o s t as bail. Usually the wind blows from a westerly direction about eight miles an hour, but soniotimcs it rises to the speed of a h u r r i c a n e . Straight, hard gales do some damage, but the "prairie twister" or w h i r l i n g windstorms called tornadoes, arc much more dangerous. Fortunately, they seldom travel far and their path is not very wide. Nevertheless, in 1928 eight persons were killed, 29 h u r t and over two million dollars worth of damage was done to property by 22 windstorms in Iowa. When a bad tornado strikes a town, as Camanche was hit, the s u f f e r i n g and loss are terrible. On J u n e 17, 3882, the air pressure over Iowa was very heavy, breeze stirred the leaves of No the trce.s. The whole stale was smothering under a hot blanket. Toward evening cool air .started to rush in from the northwest. Clouds formed. The sudden change in temperature and atmospheric pressure caused great eddies in Ihe a i r . Conditions were just right for a cyclone. . . . W h i r l w i n d s sprang u p everywhere, n its path. For a while it would Some, of them grew into tornadoes. The main storm center formed in Carroll county, moved swiftly toward the southeast, and passed out of the state a few miles below Burlington. In Boone, Story, Marshall, Jasper and Poweshiek counties funnel clouds stretched down toward the earth at several places, snatching up buildings and twisting limbs off the trees. Sometimes two or more tornadoes could be seen at once. As one spent itself, another formed. In the main- p a t h of the storm, t h e d a r k w h i r l i n g f u n n e l s rose and fell, now sailing high and then swooping clown l i k e a g i g a n t i c tail lo scatter everything within reach. About h a l f past eight on t h a t fateful S a t u r d a y night, rain bc^an to fall in G r i n n e l l . But the shower passed in a few minutes, leaving a strange, ghastly light over everything. During the lull, a distant roai was heard. And then, at a quarter to nine, before people had time to take refuge in their cellars, a f u r y struck the western edge of town. In an instant the air was foil of branches, splinters, furniture, and household goods as houses were blown away. A path two blocks wide was swept clean. In the north part of town this tornado met another one coming from the northwest. The united cyclone crushed the two main buildings of Iowa ( G r i n n e l l ) College and went roaring on its way. leaving a trail of woe and desolation. A few minutes later the town of Malcom was destroyed. Thirty-nine people were killed in G t i n n e l l and nearby. The damage to p r o p e r t y there alone amounted lo a quarter of a million dollars. Relics of the storm were found later as far away as Belle Plaine. Another bad tornado, ] 1 yean a f t e r the Grinnell tragedy, laic arms and homes of northwest owa in ruins. About 5 o'clock on the sUtry afternoon of July !, 1893, people living among the bluffs on the west side of the Little lioux river in Cherokee county saw two angry clouds, one in the northwest and the other in the southwest. They rolled up rapidly with deep, rumbling thunder and sharp flashes of lightning. About 3 miles northwest of Quimby the clouds met, and the roaring, whirling, savage tornado rushed eastward carrying ·leath and destruction over a path 55 miles long and 1,000 feet wide. Aa the greenish black cloud moved cast, people heard the noise "like a railway train" and saw the "swaying, bounding elephant's trunk of vapor" pick up buildings and tear the spokes from wagon wheels. Some sought safety in the cellar only to have the house above them torn away. Men, women, children and livestock were killed. Yet at one farm where the barn was blown away, four horsea in it were not hurt. Chickens, completely stripped of feathers, walked about with an air of consternation and amazement. The furious tempest constantly increased. It crossed Storm Lake and continued east along the Illinois Central railroad. "The sky was a fearful sight to behold." Fonda escaped when the hurricane swung to the south. But a few minutes later, at a quarter to seven, the storm struck Pomeroy. For about 10 minutes the rain fell in big drops and the wind blew hard. Then a lull. People came out of their caves and cellars. A moment afterward the town was blown away. In less than five minutes the ruin was complete. Four-fifths ot the houses were wrecked. Out of 1,000 inhabitants, only 21 families had no dead or injured to care for. Rain and hail drenched and pelted the survivors. Night covered the town with darkness. During the next two days 31 graves were filled in Pomeroy cemeteries. In all, 60 people lost their lives in that cyclone. Activity Hints. 1. Tell some stories about freaks performed by tornadoes. 2. Talk to the man in your community who reports rainfall, storms and crop conditions to the state weather and crop bureau. 3. Make a list of the names of d i f f e r e n t kinds of wind and explain what each means. 4. Read more about the Camanche and Pomeroy tornadoes in the eliat fame, provides a natural southern accent, aa a Mississippi steamboat captain. The plot, built around the love affair of Anne Shirley, "a swamp girl," and John McGuire, "a river man" -who has killed another man, has its climax in the steamboat race to Baton Rouge, with Will and Anne racing the "Clermont Queen" not only against Cobb's "Pride of Paducah" and the other boats, but against the hangman who is about to slip a noose around McGuire's neck. Maybe you can gueaa whether Will and Ann* arrive in time with "The New Moses" (Berton Churchill), Mississippi river itinerant preacher and prohibition lecturer, the witness who will save John McGuire from death. Francis Ford, drunken chief engineer on Will's boat, will be remembered as the tobacco spitting juror in "Judge Priest." a * * Boris Karloff, a fine mild mannered person whose brilliant talents are too often overlooked, has become such an ace as a bogeyman that he is able to scare even himself. In a dual role in "The Black Room," Karloff plays the parts of twin brothers, one a kind, beneficent gentleman, the other a veritable fiend. Marian Marsh, Robert Allen and Katherine DeMille are among the more prominent persons Karloff terrifies in this picture. On this same bill, playing through Tuesday at the State, are Ted Fio- Rito and band, "The March of Time' and a Will Rogers T-aveltalk. * · · Will Rogers, receiving the finest kind of support from Billie Burke Alison Sklpworth, Gail Patrick Sterling Holloway, Frances Grant and Frank Albertson, provides excellent entertainment in the title role of "Doubting Thomas," Strand feature through Tuesday.

Mervyn LeRoy's long training in the comedy field is evident in his handling of the. laugh situations. This comedy, with its star-studded casl, should please at the box office. Patsy Kelly, Allen Jenkins, Al Shean, Joseph Cawthorn, Hobart Cavanaugh and Lionel Stander are among the able funmakcrs who make the laughs come fast and furious. Dick Powell, in a trim aviator's uniform, should make many a feminine fan's heart go pit-a-patter. Pat O'Brien is right at home as a fast-talking promoter, while Berton Churchill registers as a suave hotel manager.
