MARCH 15 mm 1931 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FIFTEEN LIQUOR STORES TO OPEN IN JUNE Commissioners Back. From Eastern Survey, Work on Plans. DES MOINES, March 15. JP-Iowa's liquor control commission today began its task of setting up the machinery by which the state sale of alcoholic liquor will be carried on, beginning probably June 1. Back from a trip to eastern states and Canada, the commissioners expressed satisfaction with the Iowa law, voiced determination to see .that it is enforced aud outlined some of the broader regulations which they have decided upon. Chairman H. M. Cooper of Marshalltown told of the commission's findings as he and the other two members, Dick R. Lane of Davenport and Bernard Mauley of Mason City, settled down to their task of .organizing the state store system. Support Pledged. Support of the entire organization of the attorney general in enforcement of the law has been pledged by Attorney General Ed O'Connor, Cooper said. The attorney general was said to be contacting every sheriff and county'attorney in the state to enlist their co-operation. "It is our intention to stamp out illicit liquor sale insofar as is possible," Cooper said, addinig that the commission will have its own investigators to augment the work of the law enforcement officers. Visits to the other states brought the conviction that the Iowa statute is the proper law to "promote temperance and control the sale of liquor," the chairman said. "It is the intention of the commission not to promote sales but rather to control the liquor traffic." Iowa Has Advantage. The absence of a state tax gives Iowa an advantage over some of the other states visited, Cooper said, in that it will permit lower retail prices on liquor. By keeping prices low the commission hopes to drive out bootlegging and racketeering in the liquor trade. "We are asking the co-operation of the public in the enforcement of this law and we want their assistance," the chairman said. "It is the people's law and they have a duty to perform in its enforcement." He reiterated the position of the governor that no state store will he forced on a community and that a city or town must show that it wants a store before one is established. No Former Bootleggers. The commission will employ no one who. ever has been identified with the illicit traffic in liquor, StgQQBSr'said, and the employes will "be, selected on an efficiency rather than a partisan basis. Every employe will be required to be a temperate person, he said, over-indulgence in liquor being grounds for immediate and final dismissal. Under the rules which the commission is authorized to draft it is planned that upon a court conviction of violating the liquor law the individual liquor purchase permit will be revoked automatically. Early Part of June. Individual permits probably will be available to the public some DENIES CHARGES Harry H. AVoodrmg, assistant secretary of war, said he w e I c o m e A investigations of transactions In his office and was "confident of complete vindication." He denied all charges against the war department in the grand jury study of its purchases and sales. (Associated Press Photo). time prior to the setting up of the liquor stores. Cooper said it was indefinite as to when the stores would begin operating but that it probably would be the early part of June. Some 20 or 25 stores are expected to be opened at that time in various parts of the state. The commissioners today visited possible sites for the combined warehouse, retail store and office building which is to be located in Des Moines. Temporary offices have been established at the statehouse. Government Orders Decommissioning of 8 Coast Guard Bases WASHINGTON, March 15.

UP)--A parole granted John Dillinger after he had started his crime career prosaically enough by slugging a grocer developed into a first rate political furore today. "Amazing facts" will be bared, republicans promised. "Dirty politics," replied democrats. While all this was going on, a special grand jury was investigating the now notorious desperado's sensational escape from the. Crown Point jail. The parole freed him from the state penitentiary at Michigan City, Ind. Harry C. Fenton, director of the state republican committee's press service, said he would produce "amazing facts" about the release. Photostatlc Copy. Fenton sent Indiana editors what purported to be a photostatic copy of the parole order, signed by Gov. Paul V. McNutt. He said that it contained at least one major error. "Whereas," said the document, in the first five reasons why Dillinger should be released, "one John Dillinger was convicted in the circuit court of Allen county, Indiana, on Dec. 26, 1930, and sentenced to the Indiana reformatory for a term of 10 to 21 years, and afterwards transferred to the Indiana state prison--." Fenton declared the order was wrong by six years on the time Dillinger began serving his sentence, and also named the wrong county. Convicted in 1U24. "Dillinger's only conviction came in 1924," said the message to the editors, "and it was in Morgan county. He was in the state prison during the entire year of 1930." Dillinger was sent to prison--it was his initial trip--for slugging an elderly grocer in his home town of Mooresville, Ind. He was convicted of "conspiracy to commit a felony aud assault and battery with intent to rob." One of the reasons for his parole, as recited in the parole order, was the intercession of Mooresville citizens. Some 200 of them signed a petition saying that the boy was all right at heart. 75 ABE MISSING AFTER STORMS 9 Boats, Launches Lost on Queensland, Australia, North Coast.
