STEWART A S H I NGTON, (CPA)-- Secretary of State. Cordell H u l l tried to tell me the other day h o w U n c l e Sam has suc- c e e d e d : n transforming a thorough Latin American dis- 1 i k e of t h i s country into an extremely cordial friendship toward us. He did not explain at all clearly how it was done. He does not know, that is the fact of the matter, although he ( u n d e r President Roosevelt) played a .mightily important part in accomplishing it. He did it by tactfulness. A Yankee may be as tactful as please in his relationships you with other Yankees and yet be regarded by Latin Americans as a veritable porcupine. This Washington administration has proved to p o s s e s s the KIDNAPED DOCTOR FOUND SLAIN FEDERAL AGENT SAYSYOUTIUO, ADMITS KILUG Murderer Leads Officers to Body Near Roadside in Missouri. WILLOW SPRINGS, Mo., (IP}-A sallow faced young farmer-kidnaper led officers Wednesday to the bullet pierced body of Dr. J. C. B. Davis, 67, this Ozark country town's leading physician and foremost citizen. Earl J. Connelly of the federal bureau o£ investigation said over- ailed Robert Kenyon, 20, confessed killing Dr. Davis after luring him into the country on n false call for medical aid. The kidnaper demanded §5,000 ransom which the physician's iacully" of "being polite "in accord-I family tried unsuccessfully to pay. Ohio Begins to Rise Again at Cairo Communities Down 1,000 Mile Stretch Southward Hopeful 'Worst" Is Over ance with Latin American ideas of politeness. Hull Is Liked. Secretary Hull evidently does not realize that our present particular brand of courtesy is what has won our southern neighbors. He thinks it is our policy of today that did the business. Policy docs signify. We used to be rough with the Latin Americas. Naturally they resented it -and were a f r a i d of us incidentally; - consequently hated us. . But it was not President Roosevelt who changed our policy. President Hoover began it. Nevertheless Latin America still did not take to us. Hoover's weakness was that he was not affable. Secretary Hull's tone of, voice, rather than what he. says in it, is w^t appeals .to .; diplomacy and ' v -tii'3 r rpubli^fr6m"th'e"Ei6 'Grande: to Cape Horn. Changed Sentiment. The secretary of state is conscious of the new sentiment. As he said to me: "A few years ago, when the United States made a suggestion, the southern republics immodia- · tely asked one another, 'What's the Colossus of the North proposin, for its own benefit'." Now, almost with their eyes shut, they take it for granted that we are as patriotically Pan-American as they are." Critics of the recent Pan-American conference at Buenos Aires have complained t h a t not much was arrived at in the way of definite netutrality compacts. Certainly not all that tentatively was agreed on was put into writing. Valuable Conference. Just the same, the established era of Pan-American good wil and mutual understanding was worth more than any number ot pages of formally-concluded treaties. John Barrett, former head of the Pan-American union and father of Pan-Americanism, says: "Immediately following the las' Buenos Aires conference 1 communicated with all my colleagues in Latin America, from Mexico to Argentina. All comment has emphasized that no other Pan-American conference since the first one in 1889. has, been followed with such unanimity o£ approval." John Barrett, by the way, is an old-time republican -- no new dealer. Stewart's Contacts. I -myself lived for h a l f a dozen years, by the way, in South America. My only child is, by birth, an Argentine. I have a son-in-law in the South American consular service. Knowing .Spanish a little, I keep I in touch with the Latin American" newspapers. We are in contact w i t h those countries, in short, as- we never have been before. Secretary Hull does nol exactly understand why. Nevertheless, he did most of if.

MINNESOTA: Mostly cloudy and unsettled Wednesday night and Thursday; colder In west portion Wednesday night and in east portion Thursday.

The transfer was made in the dark hours before dawn, before sentiment could crystallize in this own of 1,500 where Dr. Davis had Juilt up a universal acquaintance n a lifetime of medical practice and civil and .political activity. "The .man responsible for Ihc crime led us to the spot," Connelly said. "He gave us sufficient information that we knew he was kidnaper and then he took us to the body." Asked if Kenyon had signed a written confession, Connelly said: "He won't have to have a signed confession." He would divulge no further details- of-the-youth's purported admissions.

The Red Cross said 200,000 lowlanders in the Mississippi valley had been driven from their homes. Arkansas' governor, Carl K. Bailey, gave the Red Cross complete charge of relief activities in the state where he said it would be necessary, for a time, to feed, clothe and shelter 50,000 citizens. The Red Cross relief fund neared the $11,500,000 mark and the senate pushed plans to send the 5790,000,000 relief appropriation bill to President Roosevelt before WPA funds are exhausted. Senator Robinson, the democratic leader, indicated the government would attempt again to hobble rebellious rivers through a n a t i o n a l control system constructed over a span of years.

The tcmperalure in the Mason City area was the highest in the last several days after a night which saw the mercury here sink to 1 degree below zero. Ail weather stations except those in Ihe extreme eastern section of the state, reported cloudy skies while Council Bluffs and Sioux City reported light snowfall. Light snow drifted down steadily over North Iowa Wednesday HOUSE CHANGES DATE IN SENATE FARM AIO BILL Extends Measure to Cover Moratorium on Loans Prior to 1936. DES MO1NES, (/!')--Reversing its position of Tuesday, the Iowa house of representatives Wednesday voted to extend the period embraced in its mortgage moratorium plan and then passed the revamped senate measure by a in the house the As Troopers Arrested Six at Flint ON PAGE bill now provides for application ot the moratorium to loans c.xc- 1, 19JG. The senate measure fixed the time at Jan. 1. 1!):!4. By a vote of 51 to f4, the house Tuesday defeated tlie extended period, but Wednesday in an about-face and in response to the plea t h a t d r o u g h t sufferers of 1936 also direly _needed aid, the house approved the latter date by a vote of 57 to 42. Senate Bill Substituted. The senate moratorium bill approved Wednesday was substituted ay the house Tuesday when it sent its own measure, to the discard after an extended period of warm debate and attempted revision. As it now stands the bill goes back to the senate for approval of the house amendment. If given the measure goes on to the .governor II;.the senate .fails . to concur a conference committee will be compelled to iron out house and senate differences over the moratorium date. The house also amended the senate measure to insert a clause by Representative Robert Blue (H) of Eagle Grove, which would restrict district judges in denying applications for moratoriums to fanners "temporarily insolvent" or whose land was deemed an "inadequate security." Inserts Blue Revision. However in thus a m e n d i n g the bill the house inserted the Blue revision as a separate section to safeguard other provisions of the act in the event the supreme court should hold his amendment unconstitutional. Proponents and opponents of the moratorium extension f o u g h t desperately today before the house reversed its position. Those demanding an extension of the time to 193(i held that it was imperative if the farm owner who suffered heavy losses in 1936 was to be protected. Those in opposition held that extended moratoriums could only impair the credit of the Iowa farmer by disrupting obligations. A plea also was made for protection of the Home Owners Loan corporation borrowers. Speaker "Itiiles Liberally.'

Public Works, Flood Control Plans Offered WASHINGTON, (#)--President Roosevelt transmitted to congress Wednesday .a national .resources committee report recommending a six year, $5,011,000,000 federal construction program. " Upholding public \vorks : planning on a grand scale, the committee advocated hundreds of specific projects in · drainage areas covering the whole country. Some \vould be undertaken at once, under the proposal, white others would be held as a reservoir "which can be ulili/.ed in periods of economic depression'' for p u b l i c ' spending to increase employment.

Car.) proposed t h a t the $900,000,000 relief- deficiency bill be amended to require a "certificate of necessity" from stales and cities asking federal aid for their destitute. Senator Robinson ( D - A r k . ) , the m a j o r i t y leader, sought quick approval of the relief fund to replenish , works progress administration resources which were he- i n g rapidly drained by flood demands. Senate leaders looked f o r w a r d , too, to tackling the larger problem of a n a t i o n a l flood-control program--called by Robinson "the most gigantic task ever undertaken in the United States." For this, most proposals followed one of these forms: HOPE OF PEACE IN AUTO LABOR Chiefs Confer at Detroit; "Sit Downers" Remain in Flint Plants. DKTKOIT, /P) -- Hopes for peace in the General Motors automotive strikes grew today as Gov.

The p e r m a n e n t school fund, most of it loaned lo farmers, amounts to approximately $5,000,000. It accrued from sale of lands set aside for school support when the state was first settled. Legalize Bond Election. The senate also passed a bill to legalize a Smithland §9,000 school building bond election, and one sponsored by Pottawattamic county legislators to permit residents of Carter Lake, Iowa, across Ihe Missouri river Jfrom Council Bluffs, lo received "some benefit from the gasoline tax they pay."
