The state board of assessment and review, which is faced with the collection and administration of the new retail sales tax, which goes into effect in Iowa April 1, 1934, is running no risks of rulings until they know more about it. Letters of inquiry sent by the Mason City Chamber of Commerce and the North Iowa Builders exchange have both been answered by a. two page form letter, stating that the board does not know the answer* to a lot of questions being asked and will issue no ruling of any kind for some time. The letter, which is over the Big- nature of John ,W. Foster, one of the three members, does refer to the proposed schedule set out by the meeting at Des Moines March 9, when some 500 retailers and their representatives adopted such a schedule. Because of wide interest in this tax. Senator Foster's letter is set out in full, as follows: Made No Rules. "We note with interest your in- . . V.~'Mace, 21 East State street, will be in charge.

"It is well to bear in mind tha 1 the law does not go into effect unti April 1 and that no tax is.payable thereunder until next July. It is however, to be noted that you do not require a permit to do business unti: June 1, and you will merely go ahead April 1 without reference to the. permit We cannot set up our organization until the law is effective,-and therefore the permits cannot be sent,out for soine_ days.

Laird, ·hose shoe store was struck by audit bullets which broke the glass the display window during the Trst National h,ank robbery. "Not because I am mayor but be- ause I saw how the holdup was staged," Mayor Laird continued, "I elieve that the police acted very wisely. While it is true that the andits got more than $50,000, still o local lives were lost by reckless hooting, such as would have' been inevitable if our officers had fired. "We have one mackine gun in the ocal police department. Even if we lad seven policemen each with a machine gun and tried to halt the desperate criminals who held up the* bank, the officers would have been | unable to do anything, because of he way the bandits shielded them- ielves with local citizens." Bandit Was laughing, Mayor Laird described the events which took place in front of his store on State street. He was wait- ng on a customer when he first leard shots. Believing them to be jackfires from an auto' muffler, he paid no attention to them at once. Soon he heard other shots and someone said that- the bank was being robbed. "I went up to the front of the store," Mayor Laird continued, "and could see an armed bandit in front of the Prescription shop, using C. D. Mulcahy as a shield. This bandit was laughing and Just seemed ticked with delight the way he ordered people around. If any ques- ^oned htm, he .shot near them.

SAW ROBBERS DRIVE TO BANK Mr. and Mrs. Barr Thought , Bandits Were Car of Pallbearers. Mr.' 'and -Mrs. W. E. Barr, 623 Georgia avenue southeast, saw the bandits drive up to the scene of the robbery. They were driving up .town on Pennsylvania - avenue southeast. They first saw the bandits, at the Pennsylvania bridge, when the. car turned on to . Pennsylvania from Fifth, street southeast; The car had evidently come from Federal avenue, according to Mr. Barr. . .."Isn't that peculiar, they have the rear window out," said Mrs. Barr. "It's probably ' hot,", said Mr. Barr. "There's an awful load of them. It looks like a car full of pall-, bearers." . Mr. Barr followed the auto north to State street. The .bandits turned west on State .street at the corner pf the Baptist church and Mr. Barr said he also turned there and followed the car. He stopped his car at the I. O. F. building to allow his wife to eliter the drug store there.

The American Legion came into being in 1919 -when selected delegates from each division in the A. E. F gathered in Paris to form an association of World, war veterans. Generals, colonels, non-coms and privates met in equal rank and formulated plans which took permanent form at an adiourned meeting of this caucus held in St. Louis. The American Legion has never departed from the democratic, all inclusive, basis on founded. which it was At the Hospital* 100 Reported Dead in Dynamite Blast NEW YORK, March 14. tiB--One hundred men were reported killed today in a dynamite explosion at La Libertad, El Salvador, according to a message received in the New ' York office of Cable company. the all-Aaerican WE GUARANTEE our Shoe Rebuilding service.

PfiONE 56S taller adds "THE AVERAGE EQUIVALENT THEREOF" an thus receives back the tax he ia re quired to pay. This is a difficu problem, will require time, judgmen and hard work to perform properly "The law, therefore, wisely pro vides for agreements between com peting retailers or the adoption o appropriate rules and reg-ulations b organizations or associations of re tail ers to work out uniform methot of adding such tax or the ayerag equivalent thereof. The law furthe wisely makes it the duty of the] board to co-operate with such retailers, organizations or associationb in formulating agreements or rules and regulations for the purpose of adding the tax or the average equivalent therof to the sales price" pi charge. The initiative is with the retailer in formulating rules or regulations in connection with the adding of the tax. It is the business ot the board to co-operate in a helpful way with such retailers. No state in the Union, as yet, has provided the manner in which this tax shall "bfe passed on, and this board is not attempting to do so. "As a matter of information we wish to say, that a uniform method of passing on to the consumer the new 2 per cent state retail sales tax was adopted Friday by approxl' mately 500 representatives of Iowa retailers meeting in Des Moines, "The tax becomes effective April 1.

NO CHANCE TO SHOOT BANDITS Officers Could Not Fire at Fleeing Robbers Because of Hostages. Chief of Police .E. J. Pattoo, who with Leo Risacher, detective, and Bay Oulman,- superintendent, of records at .the police station, followed the bandit ' car out of. town,. said there was no chance to shoot without killing innocent persons. Near the roadhouse known as the Farm, Detective Risacher drove his car into a driveway as the bandit car stopped and one of the bandits got out of the car and took aim at the pursuers. He fired under the car once, then shot past the car and the third-shot, pierced the rear corner of the.'car barely missing Officer Oulman who sat in the rear seat. '"I have no excuses to offer," said Detective Risacher. "They were well organized and we were helpless. If anyone had opeoed fire, there probably would have been a massacre. The'men were desperate." Chief Patton said that in order to protect the lives of the hostages there was nothing to do but allow the bandits to escape. The police and county officials maintained throughout that the life of innocent bystanders was worth more than the capture of the bar/its. Both Sheriff J. M. Robertson and Chief Patton said they believed, it was lucky the holdup was staged without the loss of a life. : "Had one of the bandits been shot" said Sheriff Robertson, "the others would probably have turned on the crowd." An interesting account of the Paris caucus, and written for the old American Legion Weekly, by George A White, first "secretary" or adiu- tant of the Legion, in 1920, when the event was still fresh in his mind, the Legion was born at 3:15 p. m.

SAW BANDIT BEFORE * . * * · . * . Other Sidelights in Daring Robbery of First. National Bank by Gang of Desperadoes. One of the bank bandits, perhaps n advance worker who conducted a uict survey long before the robbery as" carried out, had been a cus- omer at the · Prescription shop, op- rated by C. D. Mulcahy, who was eized as a hostage. · The man had ome into the shop several times in he past two weeks, the local pharmacist said. "Even though.he was stranger, I knew that I'd seen him efore," he explained. * # * Shots which were fired at Mr. hipley hit-and broke windows in IB offices. of Dr. B. Raymond Veston on the second floor of the 'irst National Bank building and Jr. H. W. Barbour on the third floor, one was in the Weston office at time but several, including Dr. Jarbour, were in his off ice.'The bul- et, or stray portion of a bullet, vhich broke the .glass in the Barour office was not believed to have ntcred the office, however. * * * J1 When we had been ordered to lie :own on the floor," said F. C. Heneman, assistant vice president of the First National bank, ""we didn't w whether the others were wounded or were 'just on the floor according to orders." Mr. Heneman emarked about the roar that ·eemed to pervade the bank soon r the bandits entered. It was through the action of the ·Mrst National bank's branch ex- ihange telephone operator that an :arly alarm was turned in to.Mason City police headquarters. The operator connected her transmiter with a central office circuit, leaving it in o that the noise of the crowd inside he bank was "broadcast" to the local exchange. The police call was re- aycd from .there as operators guessed the cause of the disturbance. .* * * Emmet Ryan, who was one of the hostages taken for a ride by the landits, had looked a couple of times at one of the bandits who was believed to resemble Dillinger, and had been warned by the bandit to look the other way. Once more when Ryan looked at the bandit, the bandit said, "You ·, quit gawking at me or I'll bore you through with holes." Mr. Ryan could only see the bandit's face above the mouth·because of the machine gun but he believed, from pictures he had' seen of Dillinger, that this was Dillinger. · ^ . * * - * . - · ··'·' : · When ' Francis Depart" returned after being taken for a ride by the bandits as a hostage, ' some one called attention to a large tear in his coat. Whether or not his coat had · been pierced by bullets or merely torn was unknown by him. He was riding on the rear of the bandit car and bandits were shooting out of the auto between him and C D. Mulcaby. His coat and that of Mr Mulcahy kept fluttering into the bandit's line of vision and they were warned to keep them back. Mr. Mulcahy was told to button up his coat. A peak load was placed on central office operators as hundreds of calls were made by excited Mason City- ans who wanted to know what had taken- place. Test board men from Northwestern Bell . and American Telephone and Telegraph staffs were pressed into service, to remove plugs from the switchboard as fast as calls were completed, while operators set up new circuits for incoming calls. . . . . . * » * The bandit car moved into its position at the side of the bank through the north alley that intersects with State street midway between Federal ani Delaware, attracting little attention as it passed. 'Employes standing in the rear entrance of the Sterling 'grocery and Ford-Hopkins drug company remarked on its sleek appearance as it cruised slowly through the alley. * * * "The funniest feeling in the world," was that which Mrs. Francis DeSart experienced as she saw hei husband, savings teller who was taken as hostage, pushed out of thi, bank ahead of the mob. Mrs. DeSar' told Wednesday of watching the robbery from across State street It's something to laugh about a daj later. At the time, it was no laugh ing matter. * * * ·Dr. Draper Long found a hole In the tire of his automobile which waj parked near the I, O. F. building during the holdup. Other car own ers discovered that their radiators windshields and fenders had. been pierced by the spray of bullets from the bandit gunners. * * * The bandits evidently wanted ti keep all avenues of escape open as they "worked" inside of the First National building. About five min utes before they made their dash to their waiting car, cam nto the Nichols and Green sno store, ordered customers near th "ront entrance to -get outside anc crowded others into the rear of th building. HOSPITAL GETS X-RAY MACHINE New Unit Added to Former Equipment; Available to All Doctors. A portable x-ray unit, recently ;eveloped by the General Electric -ray coroporation, has been added o .the laboratory equipment of Mercy hospital. One of the smallest Commercial units available, it. is carcely bigger than a portable ypewriter and weighs about 30 tounds. In spite of.its compactness, ade- , quate power for the taking of dif- icult pictures is developed, 58,000 ·oils at 10 milUainperes being pro- ' ided for the production of x-rays,' he voltage being stepped up from 110 volt lines, such as those in the ordinary home lighting- system. The machine's adaptability to home use will make it possible to manipulate fractures while they are · observed through a fluoroscope without moving a patient to the hospital or As complete an examination can be given as though :he patient were in a hospital. There will be 'no danger of electric shock :o patient or operators of the machine, since the unit is completely immersed in oil, an excellent insulator, and no high tension wiring is needed. The machine will be available for ·· use by all Mason City doctors, and will be operated by members of the x-ray staff at Mercy hospital.
