TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 9 1934 SHOEMAKER CAN FORFEIT HIS $25 Faces Alternative of Going to Court to Answer Assault Charge. WASHINGTON, March 9. lff~ Representative Shoemaker (fl., Minn.), awoke today with the alternatives of forfeiting J25 in collateral or going to police court to answer an assault charge. Two detectives arrested him last night as he stepped from his office in the house office building. The warrant was sworn out by Charles Newman, a taxicab driver. Newman asserted that when he failed to start quickly at a traffic light, Shoemaker ran into him and then knocked him down as he got out to remonstrate. Taken to the police station in a squad car, the congressman joked with the policemen as they booked him, saying: "If you want my fingerprints they're over at the department of justice." Shoemaker once served a term in Leavenworth, He recently had a row with a neighbor, who complained to the police later that Shoemaker struck him in the face.

LIMITATION ON WAGE REMOVED House Amends Relief Bill, Passed Earlier in Session. DES MOINES, March 9. UPl-- Removal of the wage limitations, which had been placed in the ?3,000,000 emergency relief bill, received approval In the Iowa house of representatives by a vote of 72 to 33. The action was taken on a bill amending the relief measure passed earlier in the session. The amendment went to the senate today for action. Party lines snapped in the passage of the bill, during the first night's meeting of· the special ses-. sion. Six democrats joined with 27 republicans In voting against the 3iD, while seven republicans aided iieir 66 democrat colleagues in put- Jng across the measure. Strikes Maximum. The bill strikes from the emergency appropriation act the maxi- num and minimum wage scales of 35 and 25 cents an hour, respectively, for relief paid from the appropriation. Several speakers declared the wage limitation never should have seen in the bill and asserted -the striking was in line with the president's program. Opponents contended the relief money never was intended to be distributed on a wage scale and that work provided was in ex- :hange for relief. Defeat Senate BUI. By a vote of 26 to 71 the house defeated a senate bill which would have given the state board of conservation authority over all streams in the state. Opponents fought the measure on the ground that they would have supervision over drainage ditches. The lower branch passed two senate bills. One would empower municipalities to carry insurance for the benefit of volunteer firemen or their dependents. The other clarifies a section of the state fair board statute. The bill to raise hunting and fishing license fees as a means to further Iowa's 25 year conservation program received final legislative approval when it passed the house with a bare constitutional majority, a -55 to 50 vote. It passed the senate a short while ago. ?2 Hunting License. Under the measure resident hunting licenses will cost $2 a year; a hunting license for persons under 16 years of age, SI; resident fishing licenses $1; -and combined hunting and fishing licenses $2.50. The present fee for combined hunting and fishing license is $1. . From 193* to 1938, inclusive, the state fish .and game commission will be required to «et aside $1.50 of the .fee~'froni';eacn b.untirig''license" *anc $1 from each combined hunting and fishing license, the funds to be usec for the propagation of fish an3 game and the establishment of refuges and public hunting grounds. House approval also has been placed on a bill to provide that the realty mortgage moratorium acts shall not apply to mortgages executed on or after Jan. 1, 1931. To Exempt Co-Ops. Both branches of the assembly yesterday also passed a bill to exempt farmers' and fruit growers associations and like co-operative organizations from the net corporations income tax of the new three- point tax law. Two other bills passed by the house allow district courts to issue orders conveying the homestead o' -erson whose spouse is insane ana jrders relating to the sale or mortgage of realty by the guardian oi an insane person. In its consideration of-the morb jage bill the house refused to add an amendment which would have required courts to continue fore closure actions in which the defend ant was not in default for want ol appearance or pleading. HOUSE APPROVES NRA BILL 82 TO 5 (Continued from pace 1 subject to complying with any codi of fair competition. Authorizes the governor to consent to the use of state and loca officers in carrying out the NRA and to appoint as many additiona persons as necessary and fix thei: compensation. .

Not voting or absent were: Mi Dermott, Ostby and Porter, demi crats. Opening the debate, Representa tlve Mitchell (D) of Webster sa there was no question about the fee eral act as regards interstate com merce, but that action had bee brought on the question of intr state business. He told the house the original b attempted to make all regulation of NRA and the law of Iowa by re erence, but that the amendmen IN DAY'S NEWS Mrs. Franklin D. Koosevelt Is shown as she started from Miami, Fla., on her air .croi§e of the West Indies to study economic and social conditions. (Associated Press Photo). made the filing of approved codes, ·ules and regulations with the sec- stary of state the law of Iowa. Has Such Law. He contended that New York had assed such a law and that it had jeen upheld by the courts and as- jerted "we must adopt this amendment if we are to sustain the fed- ral NRA act within the state as egards intra state business." It was claimed by Representative A.very (R) of Clay that the NRA vas a noble experiment. He assert- d employment of labor in private ndustry was less today than last Vtober, and declared "the act could ot help but- fail as it was founded n the wrong principles and in open efiance of a fundamental economic w." He further asserted that if the STRA had not been adopted and something had been done to In- rease the price of farmer's prod- cts the wheels of industry would ave started up. Jensen Urges Support. Representative Jensen, (D) of iUdubon J 'Srged support of the bill as support for the president's program, while Stimpson, (D) of Jones eclared the NRA was the best reposition ever submitted to the eople. On the other hand, Representative ohnson, (R) of Linn attacked the right of courts to prevent and retrain violation of codes by offend- rs without a jury trial. He declared he New York courts had not passed n a similar law, but said the deci- ion was on a statute ' similar to he. Iowa tubercular law but affect- ng milk. He-.contended the filing of codes with the state does not make them aws of the state or give the state right to punish offenders. Are Bridging Chasm. "The republican administration old the people as they came up to the chasm to get across if you can/aid Representative Brady, (D) of D ottawattamie, "Roosevelt and the administration have been bridging he chasm so you won't have to all." He added "if the NRA has put 1,300,000 or 100 men to work, it has lone a noble deed." In closing the debate, Mitchell said that the NRA had increased arm prices and that there never had been a time when constructive criticism was not welcomed, adding 'as far as party politics is concerned, the opposition brought it on and we accepted the challenge." PUT OFF ACTION ON ADJOURNING (Continued from p»ge 1 ;he house had amended this to noon :omorrow." The senate, in executive session, this morning confirmed the interim appointments of Cora E.

BRITISH PLAN TO BUILD AIR FORCE Refuse to Lag Behind While Other Nations Keep Expanding. By BUKOETTK JOHNS LONDON, March 9. Iff 1 )--Great Britain has served notice upon the world that she is determined to have parity in the air as long as other nations cling to theli- aircraft building programs. She ia unwilling, Sir Phillip Sassoon told the house of commons, "to accept a position of continuing inferiority in the face of rapidly expanding air forces in the United States, Japan, Russia and other nations." Sir Phillip, undersecretary lor aviation, declared Britain has concluded she must, as long as air forces exist, "have parity in the air, howsoever that parity is attained." Reach Critical Point.. "The world has reached a critical point of extreme delicacy in the matter of disarmament," he said, during debate on estimates for increasing the British air force by four squadrons. "Far from accepting our proposals, other nations have steadily increased the strength of their respective air armaments until they far outnumber our own. "That is not the whole story; the latest developments are still more striking. "The president of the United States has recently sanctioned an additional expenditure of some 3,000,000 pounds on new aircraft for American naval and military air services. Russia and Japan also are expanding their air forces largely.'! Refine to Full Behind. Stanley Baldwin. lord president f the council, immediately after- ards declared the national govern mcnt is determined not to accept inferiority in the air. If negotiations for limiting air armaments are fruitless the government "will see to it that the air strength and air power of this country shall no longer be in a position of inferiority to any within striking distance of our shores," Mr. Baldwin asserted. The undersecretary expressed the hope that Britain's decision to add the new squadron under provisions of the air estimates would not serve as a spark touching off an armaments race in that field. Xo Spend More. He described the air estimates--a part of defense force figures calling for the spending of 4,765,000 pounds (now about $24,206,200) more on the British army, air and navy next year than last--as "the outcome of our desire to pursue disarmament and study economy on the one hand and on the other of our reluctant conviction that a policy of postponement cannot be continued." Saying that a resumption of the 1934 10 year program had become inevitable, Sir Phillip continued: "If other nations will not come down to our level, then, inevitably, our national imperial security demands that we must begin to build up toward theirs." Including army estimates made public today by Lord Hailsham,' secretary for war, the total bill for the British army, navy and air force in the coming year will be 113,711,000 pounds ($577,651,880). RUMOR BLASTED IN BREWER CASE Salesman Returns to Lime Springs to Disprove Any Part on Affair. CRESCO, March 9.--The foundation for the rumor that a location near Lime Springs might have been the hideout of the kidnapers of Edward G. Bremer, St. Paul banker, was blasted Thursday with the return to Lime Springs of Dale Frost, traveling salesman, who left home about the time of the kidnaping. Mr. Frost stated that he heard about the rumors while in Chicago and came back to Lime Springs to disprove any report that he had any connection with the kidnaping. His father, Richard Frost, is a rural mail carrier who resides at Lime Springs. The clew that led authorities to search near Lime Springs was the underwear that Bremer wore when he returned. It bore the mark of a Lime Springs store, which was robbed about a year arid a half ago. Underwear was taken from the store at that time. Authorities investigated the territory surrounding Lime Springs about three weeks agd. Knutson, Benson and Palmer Are Speakers on 4th District Rally NEW HAMPTON, March 9.-C. A.
