W--Funeral arrangements were being completed here today for William H. Harrison, 40, Sioux City, who was suffocated in a slide of wheat in an elevator bin here. Surviving are Mrs. Harrison, who is ill in a Cherokee hospital, and a sister, Mrs. Sioux City. H. I,. Hendrickson of Firemen recovered tne body late yesterday, two hours after a seven- loot slide of the grain had engulfed him. Harrison was working with Chris Hanson of Omaha shoveling ./heat in a bin. Hanson said he heard a sudden cry for help, and saw an avalanche of the grain descending upon Harrison. Pnysicians jaid Harrison died almost immediately. RUSSIA USED AS EXAMPLE TO U. S. (Continued Krwn PaEe !.· zation was only in its initial stages. "There likewise was an interval during which the cities were favored at the expense of agriculture, due, unquestionably to the fact that originally the revolution was industrial and urban. That inequality, too, has been corrected, thanksfprincipally to the circumstance that the peasants' protests finally became too alarming to be Ignored. "At last the whole people undeniably, are advancing in the direo- tion of prosperity. They have a long- way to go, to be sure, and there are plenty of complaints and a deal of ridiculing of soviet-ism. For all that I failed to firiS one single Russian who wanted to return to the old regime." * * * "OUT,"-said the senator, "as the D Russians grow more and more prosperous, what may befall communism, as a result of it, is an interesting problem. "Thus far sov : let officialdom h a s - appeared singularly impervious to the corrupting influences of big money. However, why, after all, should anyone greatly care for much money in Russia? There is nothing there to buy with it. Yet when these of- Mardi Gras Out, Lent in King Rex and King Zulu Go Back to Ordinary Business. NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 18. (£·)-- The chimes of the old St. Louis cathedral, one of the most historic churches on the American continent, brot another Mardi Gras to a close at midnight this morning and at the same moment ushered in Lent's 40 days of atonement. As the pealing bells hushed the din of dance and masquerade, King Rex retired from the throne of fantasy to become again Edward E. Soule, a businessman, and the unidentified King Zulu,' Negro carnival ruler, returned to the workday world. The concluding event on the Mardi Gras program was the ball of Comus, God of Laughter, at which Miss Adele Jahncke, daughter of Ernest Lee Jahncke, assistant secretary of the navy was queen. Miss Gladys Gelpi was queen of Mardi Gras. Associated Pr/rsa photo GLADYS GELPI. ....'.

"Is there a conclusion to be drawn from this?--as to what will occur as the home land develops temptations rivaling the outside world's. Does it hint at what may be communism's finish? ' * * * A MONG other posts Senator Cutting has held is the chairmanship of the New Mexico board of penitentiary commissioners which possibly qualifies him more fully than the average tourist to speak concerning the complaint that Russia seeks to flood the rest of the world with convict-made products, ^jid it is true, he raises a point hitherto entirely, so far as I am aware, unmentioned. "The Soviets," he explains, "pay their convicts the regular wages of free workers--as. free as any workers can ne under communism. Even the later have their wages fixed by the government and must do whatever work is available. I don't know that that is essentially different from capitalism. All workers have their wages fixed--not governmental^ outsid? Russia, but by their private employers. And all must work, in effect, at whatever they can find to dp--If, in times like these, they can find anything."

(;F--How three youths turned to bank robbery to pay off a mortgage on an automobile was told in a confession that Sheriff William Thompson attributed to Lloyd Havens of Iowa Falls.

BtJTTEBFIELD Associated Press Radio Editor (Time central standard thruout) NEJV YORK, Feb. 17. UP)-Amos V Andy are being deluged by a flood of pencils. The downpour of writing equipment apparently is due to the difficulty the boys have in keeping pencils handy in their radio skits. The other night Andy remarked that he had to use a lead nickel to do some figuring. About one out of 10 listeners decided to help him' out. So pencils started speeding thru the mails toward Chicago, where Amos 'n Andy put on their skits for the WJZ network. Divorce is much like public office.
