GRINNELL, W)--Grinnell college officials said Saturday that investigation of intoxication among students nag resulted in the suspension of three senior men until June and a two weeks suspension for two other students. Five men, all freshmen, were placed on strict probation.. The inquiry was made by the administrative committee of the college which declined to disclose the names of the students disciplined. "Grinnell is not a drinking college," Shelton L. Beatty, dean of men, said, "and it will not tolerate drinking on the campus. "We feel, however, these men deserve another chance." He said the senior students suspended until June will be given the chance of taking their examinations then. If they do not complete their work in June, the dean said, they will be given another opportunity next September. Following disciplinary action by the college,, the council of house presidents, men's governing body, voted to call before it any student "encountered possesing or under the influence of liquor." The student governing body is empowered to suspend from the dormitories for a week any male student found guilty of possessing or being under the influence of liquor.

ROME, UP)--Marching into lush jungle country," a far western fascist column moved down the Ethiopian- Sudanese frontier lands Saturday, driving a wedge toward Lake Tana and Great Britain's sphere of influ- rice. One of four full army corps in motion on the northern African front, the western column's advance guard was nearing the important trail junction of Nogara, in the northwestern corner of Ethiopia, not more than 100 miles from the great inland sea which supplies the life blood of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan's blue Nile. South and east of it, war planes were reported to have bombed Ethiopian concentrations in the Encetab section, north of the Amharic capital of Gondar. Gondar lies but 23 miles north of Lake Tana. Moving in a southwesterly direction, other troops had crossed the Takkaze river and penetrated deep into the Tzellemti region, northeast of the lake.

The Locarno powers condemnec the reich-for treaty violation, ant Hitler tartly announced he woulc not renounce Germany's sovereign rights. A Sanguine Figure. The crux of the hubbub was due with the league of nations counci meeting to consider the French demand for sanctions against Ger many. France has worried over insecur ,ty on tie Rhine since the time o Richelieu. As the council met some recalled that France set an ex ample for Germany after the Na poleonic wars by denouncing th peace treaties of 1814 and 1815. If France does not obtain satis 'action, she may seek to realign Europe's fraternity of nations out side the league on the basis of mu ;ual security pacts. The most sanguine figure in the lullabaloo was Premier Mussolini Hitler, whose ambassador to Rome made no less than five trips to Ber in in February alone, has put H Duce in a position to deal for the ifting of sanctions.

Fletcher of the republican national committee in order to guide the political destinies of the Kansas governor in the presidential race. By virtue of his geographical position in the farm belt, Landon was described by his friends as the standout candidate for the republican nomination. Governor Merriam of California took note of that in announcing support for the Kansan. In the first presidential primary of 1936, Colonel Frank Knox, the Chicago publisher, picked up 11 un- pledged votes in New Hampshire, his former home.

Senator Borah, Intent on thwarting what he calls non-popular nomination of presidential candidates, entered the Pennsylvania primary. Senator Robinson of Arkansas, democratic leader, exchanged charges with former President Hoover on questions of currency, credit and recovery. At Swords' Points. Two events in official Washing:on's week could not be disassociated from politics. The attack on the senate lobby committee for its "sei- sure" of telegrams may be metamorphosed into a principal campaign issue. Jouett Shouse, executive head of the American Liberty league, and Committee Chairman Black were at swords' points. Concrete action was taken by the senate in calling on the federal communications commission to tell what aid it gave Black, and the District of Columbia supreme court enjoined the committee from taking possession of the telegraphic correspondence of a Chicago law firm. The other event was the growing argument over what Senator Holt of West Virginia termed maladmin- istration of relief funds. Holt gathered data for a renewal of his barrage against Administrator Harry L. Hopkins even as Hopkins announced dismissal of two Illinois WPA officials accused of collecting money on a project for political purposes. A Presidential Request. Congress wrestled with the Roosevelt proposal for taxing undivided industrial surpluses, and the president appealed to railway labor and managements to settle their conflicts over projected consolidations without recourse to legislation. Two new major tests for the new deal came before the supreme court in suits which may decide the constitutionality of the securities con- ·ol and the Guffey coal control acts. The United States conference 5f mayors proposed to the president n additional $2,340,000,000 to con- inue work relief during the next iscal year.

Punctuating recurrent disorders n the heels of Spain's Feb. 16 elec- ions, the new. leftist government .nested scores of leading fascists nd monarchists accused of fomenting trouble. More than 50 persons ave been killed. Caught in the gov- rment's net was Primo de Rivera, soa of the late dictator and leader of Spanish fascists. Lieut. Robert K.

Wilmer, eye specialist TRAGEDY MARKS WEEK IN STATE Murder at Independence in Spotlight; Flood Waters Menace Iowa. THE WEEK IN IOWA. By The Associated Press ONE NIGHT--Mrs. Myrtle Pace hummed to herstlf as she prepared supper for her five children living at home with her on a chicken farm near Independence. Though separated from her husband, she had succeeded in rearing her children. They were all good students, all worked or helped in their own way to keep the family solvent. Ogden, 18, was an all-state high school football player, which probably would help him earn his way through college. Ogden, at that moment, was upstairs changing from his" work clothes. Thurza, 13 year old daughter, was in her room getting ready for supper. Bine Shots Heard, Rodney, 15, another son, came into the house and mounted the stairs. Shortly after rifle shots crackled through the house. The lilt of song died on Mrs. Pace's lips. She scurried upstairs. "There," she told officers, "I found Thurza stretched out on the floor moaning. Ogden stood swaying, his hands over his stomach. Rodney crouched with a. rifle in his hands. "When I entered the room, Rodney ran out." That night Ogden' died of his wounds. Thurza was taken to a hospital, unconscious. The next morning JDubuque officers captured Rodney in the railroad yards there. Plan Murder Charge. Buchanan county officers brought him back to Independence, said the boy confessed slugging his sister with his Boy Scout ax, attempting to mistreat her, shooting his brother in sudden fear that he might be discovered. A coroner's jury accused him of murder. County Attorney R. J. Kremer said he would file a murder charge against the boy. Physicians said the sister he slugged probably will survive. Driven From Homes. WATER, WATER--Flood waters coursed along Iowa streams another week, welling out over thousands of acres of land, driving hundreds from their homes. At Sioux City, the turbulent Floyd river inundated 100 city blocks, made refugees of nearly 600 persons early in the weak. And as the Floyd began its retreat, the Big Sioux, to the west of the city, threatened a new onslaught of water. In Monona county, the Little Sioux and Maple rivers broke out of the banks and dikes, flooded parts of several small towns, turned miles of their lowlands into lakes. Nearly 100 families were driven from their homes in this area. Freezing weather towards the week-end halted the flood water's attack somewhat, but the weatherman warned that the outlook is for rain and warmer weather. Sought Farm Equality. GOOD FIGHTER GONE--As it must to every man, death came this week to Charles R. Hearst, Iowa Farm Bureau leader, in a Cedar Rapids hospital. Thirteen years he served the Iowa Farm Bureau as president, always leading in its fight to gain agricultural equality. For several years he also served as vice president of the National Farm Bureau. Heart Gave Out Slowly. He still was a vice president at the time of his death, but in January he refused re-election as Iowa president because of ill health. Few knew, however, that his overtaxed heart was slowly giving out. His family and his friends buried him in a cemetery near by the Black Hawk county farm where he was born, where he maintained a residence all his life. Said National Farm Bureau President Ed O'Neal in eulogy: "Agriculture has lost a good fighter. Charlie didn't know when to quit." On Friday, 13th. THE THIRTEENTH DEFENDANT--It was Friday, the thirteenth. Twelve defendants had stood before DCS Moines Municipal Court Judge Ralph Powers and been found guilty of various charges. Joe Getchell, 34, was the thirteenth and the last. "I see," said the judge, "you are charged with writing a false check for $4.90. What do you plead?" "Not guilty, your honor," said Getchell. "You see," he added hesitantly, "I made the check good." "Case dismissed," said Judge Powers. But it took a reporter to point out the significance of the situation. lowan Fatally Hurt in Kansas Auto Crash HUTCHINSON, Rons., iT---C. A. Byham of Shenandoah, Iowa, was fatally injured in a crash between his car and a truck west of here.

NEW YORK, UP)--Five "arbitrators" named by Mayor F. H, La- Guardia called union leaders and building operators together Saturday to end the two weeks' old strike of service employes which police said had affected 2,500 buildings. The realty advisory board, representing the operators, Immediately accepted the negotiation call, but so far as could be learned, James J. Bambrick, local president of the Building Service union, was unavailable and did not answer the arbitrator's telegram. Mayor LaGuardia, in despair of breaking the strike deadlock by his individual efforts, named the survey board of five men to effect a settlement of the walkout. The board was ordered by the mayor to establish the obstacles to prompt settlement of the strike and to make recommendations for immediate termination of the deadlock."
