TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 13 1936 signed by Great Birtain, France, Belgium and Italy that Hitler make a conciliatory move. Combined with the foreign office announcement of an "open door, 1 ' observers were given the impression that the British were still hopeful that the international situation might be eased and the impasse between Germany and France broken peacefully. Von Hoesch was followed into the big building on Downing street by J. A. C. Avenol, secretary-general of the league of nations, and Nicholas Titulescu, foreign minister of Rumania and the leading figure in the little entente. To Get Last Chance. Authoritative sources said they believed Germany was about to be given its last chance to remove troops from the Rhineland before the signatories of the Locarno treaty and the other members of the league of nations took action. Soviet Russia already had thrown its support to France in the latter nation's demand that the troops either be pulled out of the long demilitarized zone or that Germany be punished with military and economic action. Adamant in KefusaL Adamant in her refusal to share In Hitler's European security offers while the troops remain, France hinted she would call for broken diplomatic relations with the reich as the first step toward sanctions, should Hitler balk at league of nations settlement. The whole question -has been placed in the lap of the league council by the Locarno powers, Britain, France, Belgium and Italy, meeting .in London. The showdown may come at the London council session Saturday. Friday the Locarno powers, seeking to draft a recommendation for council action, .were reported considering giving Hitler a 24 hour limit to reply to a demand for Rhineland evacuation. Would Await Reply. Under this plan the powers would meet just prior to Saturday's council meeting to await Hitler's reply and, if he failed to answer, would then proceed to outline whatever recommendation they might have decided upon before the council. ·' From Russia, the apparent Locarno solidarity was seen by an official spokesman as prior warning to German "saber rattling" that the friends of peace will stand shoulder to shoulder. · B r i t a i n , would-be conciliator, faced a tightening impasse. · Der fuehrer, before a wildly cheering crowd at the Rhineland · city of Karlsruhe, vowed Thursday night that "nothing in the world : can move us to renounce this sovereignty," his nazi government, ·willing only to maintain the Rhineland army in status quo, served notice that der fuehrer's peace plan will not stand forever.

FUNERAL HELD FOR SLAIN BOY Defense Strategy Not Yet Decided in Independence ' Slaying Case. INDEPENDENCE, (.T)--Defense strategy had not been determined Friday and Ray Kremer, Buchanan county attorney, could'not be reached to determine if he would oppose a plea of insanity for Rodney Pace, I 3 5 year old killer of his brother, Og-1 cien, 18, whom he fatally wounde Tuesday night because the Jatte surprised Rodney in an attempte criminal attack on their small siste Thurza, 13.

Final parliamentary ratification of the Franco-Soviet Mutual Assistance pact put Russia's army, greatest in the world, definitely at- France's side against a thrust from Germany. Hitler called that pact a "cuckoo egg" of communism at Karlsruhe. He said it brought bolshevism's evils to German borders and made necessary a rearmed Rhineland. Elsewhere in Europe there were unwelcome rumors. Athens heard that Greece, newly restored to monarchial status, was massing troops on Bulgarian borders because Bulgaria had threatened repudiation of the post-war treaty of Neuilly, by .which Thrace was ceded to Greece. . Both Greek and Bulgarian officials denied the rumors. HITLEE SAYS GERMANY AGAIN UNITED NATION KARLSRUHE, Germany, (IP)-- Reichsfuehrer Hitler told 60,000 Germans massed in a. cheering throng Thursday night that Germany--with troops again in the Rhineland--is once more a united nation. He began speaking after a long delay while he stood on the rostrum and the crowds shouted "heil!" until the spectators were hoarse. Said Hitler: "I did not believe in 1932 that I would come again, four years later, to face you in an election, campaign. Three Years Behind. "An unexampled struggle of three years lies behind us. We were heirs to a situation of complete disaster including agriculture, industry, business, and politics. "The task ahead of us seemed impossible. Everywhere was collapse. Many thought it would be impossible to set industry going again. "Worse than that was the collapse of the German labor power-about 7,000,000 persons were unemployed besides millions of young people who had grown up without learning any trade or profession. We began to be a people of tempor r ary hand laborers. "Spiritual Breakdown." "Corresponding to the industrial tollapse was a spiritual breakdown. "Forty-six parties tried to represent the German people. Disunity ·was rampant. Germany became the homestead of conflicting interests. The year 1918 had proved to be not only a signal for internal collapse but also for the collapse of our traditions in the world. "Mistrust reigned on one side and hate on the other when we took power in 1933. power has come to Germany through belief." dazed and on the verge of hysteria because of the tragedy, and he youngest child.

Paul Smith, who has representei the family at the inquest, where the mother of the boys was the prin cipal witness, said he did not wish to forecast a probable defense, thai nothing had been decided as to the nature of the defense and that no alienist had been engaged to examine into the boy's mental status. Kremer had made no statement, except that, in pursuance with the :oroner's jury verdict that Ogden Pace had died from gunshot wounds inflicted by Rodney Pace, he would file a murder charge in .district courj; here Saturday mornifig. ~ : Fnneral Bites Held.' * The funeral rites ^were; conducted at St. John's Catholic church' by the pastor, Monsignor W. T. Donohue, who made no reference to the tragedy. The condition of the girl, Thurza, remained serious, but hope was entertained that she will recover from the head injuries inflicted when she was struck down by her brother with a hatchet which was part o his boy scout equipment. She wa conscious and is allowed to converse with her mother and others of th family, but has no memory of th manner in which she was injured o of the incidents which preceded he injury. She may never recall th tragedy, her physician says. Sine she has no memory of the events o Tuesday night, she has not been told of her elder brother's death. A case of mistaken Identity nearly caused George Hayes, right, of New York to be executed in the electric chair for murder. Last November George was arrested for the slaying- of a grocery clerk. "Pos- tive identification" by eight \vitnessesi sent him to the Tombs prison in Ne\v Yortt with a murder indictment hanging over him. But, the other day, John Farley, left, was captured during an nttemptcd holdup with the same gun on his person used in the slaying for which Hayes was charged. Farley confessed to the slaying, according .to police. Oberve the close resemblance. CHANGE OF VENUE SOUGHT IN TRIAL Attorney Charges Prejudice Around Bedford Against Mrs. Johnston.

TRAFFIC TIED UP BY SNOWSTORM Two Boys Missing in Storm Area of Northern Minnesota. ST. PAUL, (.T)--A raging snowstorm, especially severe in northern Minnesota, swept northwest states Thursday, a day after portions of the same area faced flood threats. The same low temperatures and wind that brought snow and, in northern Minnesota, traffic tieups as serious as those experienced "in mid-winter, checked all but a few flood threats. The snow was general over Wisconsin and Minnesota and covered parts of Iowa and northern Illinois. Two boys were missing in the northern Minnesota storm area and three persons were killed in an auto-train crash near Albert Lea in southern Minnesota. Poor visibility was reported a contributing cause. Hundreds of motorists were stranded, schools and outside work halted in the northern Minnesota iron range area. Fresh snowfall was forecast for north Dakota, still digging out from heavy falls earlier this week. Lowland settlers in the western north Dakota area around Williston breathed easier as the Missouri river level dropped and excess waters escaped around and under an ice jam. £ynl Knit'tex Coat (Qwesfions and Answers') Q.
