TWO. MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 6 · 1937 also the activities of the smaller groups. An air of expectancy pervaded Flint, Mich., where one fourth oi the. 165,000 residents are General Motors employes and where two plants of the corporation are held by sit down strikers defying an injunction. The populace waited eagerly for news from the Detroit conference as action to remove Ihe men from two Fisher body factories again was delayed. The issuance of a writ of attachment as a sequel to the injunction and its defiance, malting possible the arrest of the "sit downers," completed General Motors' legal action against the men. Sheriff Delays Action. Upon receiving the writ from Judge Paul V. Gadola, who granted the injunction last Tuesday, Sheriff Thomas \V. 'WolcoU asked "Governor Murphy ' whether it would be necessary to swear il special 'deputies to aid in making the arrests or whether he migh' have . the assistance ot nations guardsmen stationed in Flint to preserve order. "I am not going to act until I hear from the governor, 11 the sher- i f f , said. Governor Murphy hat neither 'replied nor indicated wha his answer would be. The general feeling in unofficial circles at Flint was that ai 'agreement was.near in the peace parley, but that if the conference should fail that martial law probably would be declared in Flint. Sympathizes With People. "I sympathize with the peopl in Flint," Governor Murphy saic after- Friday night's conversation: among himself, James F. Dewey federal labor conciliator, and General Motors and union representatives. ' "The messages I have receivec (from Flint) show great anxiety We are trying to work this out in a way to represent the best interests. We want them to be happ; about this." · . . Earlier in revealing that he hac not replied to the sheriffs communication, Murphy said: "I directed the military authorities early this (Friday) morning to preserve peace and order in Flint and see to it that mob rule does not happen, and that no other .incident be allowed to embarrass peace negotiations." Concentrated In Flint. The 3,500 national guardsmen concentrated in Flint remained in their billets except those patrol- ing an 80 acre area embracing the Fisher body plant No. Z--one of those occupied by the sit down strikers named in the injunction --the Chevrolet plant No. 4, where a new sit down started after the injunction had been requested, and other General Motors buildings. The troops were not in the vicinity of Fisher No. 1, the other building held by the strikers defying the injunction.

BLAME CRASHES ON PERSONNEL Air Commerce Bureau Has Report on Five Recent Plane Wrecks. WASHINGTON, (tf)--The ail- commerce bureau, in a tentative analysis of five recent air crashes which cost 25 lives, Saturday Jlamed four on personnel failures. It .[had iio"·'. information on the other.: .. ' "!'. 7 ·'·;;.:)"'''-."":' - 7 '.'· ·'· The bureau reported to an air afety conference that pilot errors were "primary causes" of the four accidents and in three cases supervisory ground personnel also was responsible. Bad weather was given as a contributing cause of the crashes, with ice formation and poor radio range reception figuring in instances. The bureau lacked data on Which it -could base conclusions regarding the Western Air Express transport lost near Salt Lake City Dec. 15. It carried four passengers and a crew of three. Kariio Ranee Factor. Besides a pilot error and bad weather, the bureau continued, radio range reception was a factor in the United Airlines crash near Newhall, Cal., Dec. 27 which sent nine passengers and three crew members to death. · The plane, it said, was "apparently turning back to make an Instrument (blind) approach" into the airport and struck a mountain. With pilot and supervisory personnel errors listed as primary causes, the bureau said ice formation was a contributing factor in the Western Air Express accident near Newhall Jan. 12 in which tour passengers and a co-pilot were killed. The plane, it added, was "making an instrument apt pronch without making use of radio aids available." Martin Johnson, noted explorer, was among' those killed in the crash. His wife was injured. Jammed Into mountain. A Northwest Airlines plane which jammed into . a mountain near Kellogg, Idaho, Dec. 18, killing two .pilots, "continued flight after losing radio range signals due to static," the analysis said. Both the pilot and ground personnel made errors, ice formed on the ship and there was some question whether navigational Instruments were functioning properly. Dick Merrill, crack Eastern Air Lines pilot and trans-Atlantic flyer, was among those listed with pilots' errors. The bureau said this, supervisory personnel errors, bad weather and poor radio range reception sent Merrill's big transport down near Milford, Pa., Dec. 19. No one was killed. The bureau's report came after airline spokesmen had demanded that it raise from 55,733,000 to $14.000,000 its request for an appropriation to increase safety facilities. 100,000 Signatures on Petition Favoring Liqudr by Drink Act DES MOINES, (XP)--The Iowa senate received Friday a petition its sponsors said bore 100,000 signatures asking enactment of the Roan bill providing for sale of liquor by (he drink.

HOUSE HAS 1ST WEEK-END MEET Defeats Temporarily Bill to Outlaw Slot Machines in State. DES MOINES, OP)-~The Iowa iiouse wound up its first week-end sesicm at noon Saturday by defeating temporarily a bill aimed lo'outlaw slot machines and similar devices used for gambling. Sole accomplishment of the morning was adoption of a measure which AVill allow the advertising of budget hearings by posting notices on telephone poles instead of inserting them in the newspapers. With the senate in recess over Ihe week-end the house convened at 10 a. m. Only 45 of the 108 members were in their seats and it looked at a time as though thu week-end work" block was out of luck. Late arrivals swelled the number to 69, a scant quorum. Heads Off Move. Speaker La Mar Foster (D) of West Branch headed off a move to adjourn by warning the house that its work was laid out "and that those willing to could just as well take a chance with their measures with the membership that's present." Representative L. C. Bowers (R of Kent took the chance and succeeded in getting one bill passed and one defeated. After adoption of the budget advertising bill, Bowers called upon the members to adopt his bill list- Ing slot machines and similar devices as gambling equipment subject to confiscation without proof they are being used for gambling. Not Specifically Listed. He explained that since such devices are not specifically' listed in the gambling statute, officers find it difficult to gain evidence they are being used for gambling. "They are one armed bandits," lie declared, "and they are teaching our young people the gambling urge. But they don't even give them a fair chance to win." Hep. Leo A. Hoegh (R) of Chariton succeeded in amending the bill when he urged that pinball machineSi duck shooting machines and the like were games of skill and that games of skill should not be banned "since a lot of people find amusement playing them." . . Used for Gamblintr. He roused Rep. J. P. Gallagher (D) of Williamsburg, however, the 72 year old house veteran charging that all such machines can be used for gambling and that pinball machines keep alive the gambling instinct. "They're , made. by the grafter 'or-tHe bobb," ; he declared.' 1 -"!!'you want to make a great big Monte rlo out ot this country, then let them continue to operate." The vote on the slot machine dill was 52 for, 13 against, with 43 absent or not voting. Since the measure failed to gain a constitutional majority; Speaker Foster declared it defeated. It can, howe\ r er, be called up again. Necessity of Revision. Bovvers urged necessity ot revision of the present statute relating to the newspaper publication of budget notices, saying il worked a hardship on small local-^ Hies without newspaper facilitiesr "And they will get the same attention and reach just as may people if the notices can be posted on telephone poles or on the front doors of town halls," Bowers added. The bill passed 63 to G. Six more proposals were submitted to the house Saturday tor consideration including a 36-page measure for the creation of an Iowa State Teachers' annuity and pension system. The measure was sponsored by nine lawmakers and would set up a complete retirement system applicable at the age of 60 for all teachers, superintendent:;, and school employes. Effective July, 1937. The act would be effective July 1, 1937, administered by a state board composed of the stale superintendent of public instruction, secretary of state, one member appointed by the governor, and two others who would be eligible teachers elected by their organization. The bill also would set up a medical board of examiners, and would include all local pension systems where a majority of the members voted to join. Annuities would be based proportionately to contributions to the fund. The annuity bill also provides an appropriation of $300,000 to handle annuities until the fund is established by contributions, and another $30,000 allocation for administrative costs at the outset. Would Be Repaid. The larger amount, however, would be repaid to the state as the Duke of Windsor's Sister to Aid Abdicated Monarch -*r.; unfortunate, but added "there are institutions that are asking a lot more than they're entitled to." Rep. B. B. Hickenlooper (R) ot Cedar Rapids, republican floor leader in the house, said he will "fight any attempt to raise taxes." At the same time, Senator ^yilliam S. Beardsley (R) o£ New Virginia, senate republican floor leader. said "we will be breaking faith with the people of Iowa if we permit" the state's budget to rise above the present 15 million dollars a year. Pressure for Increase. Senator Leo Elthon (R) of Fertile, chairman of the senate appropriations committee, said it was his hope tha(: "we will be, able to hold the budget within the appropriations made by the last legislature." Pressure for an increase in the state's biennial operating budget started when former Gov. Clyde L. Herring advocated a boost D[ three million dollars artnually. Ho said needed improvements at state institutions and "merited" salary raises warranted the added expense. Gov. Nelson G. Kraschel, in his naugural address, likewise said increases in expenditures were necessary for the same reasons. The regular budget bill is now under preparation in the slate comptroller's office and must be submitted to the legislature by Feb. 15. Have Asked Increases. Comptroller C. B. Murtagh said most institutions and departments have asked for increases. The latest increase request came from the state contro! board and had the backing of Governor Kraschel. · fund took form. Of Ihe other new bills, one would permit counties to retain 50 cents from each auto transfer fee as well as for the issuing it licenses; another would limit the office of coroner to physicians, and a third would eliminate cities of 25,000 from the state limiting thi hours of city firemen to 12 or shifts of 24 hours. Leaders of the two chambers were in agreement Saturday that "There'll be a big fight in both the house and the senate if a serious attempt is made to increase Iowa state faxes." No Hope of Reduction, Rep. Gustave Alesch (D) of Marcus, chairman of the house appropriations committee, said "I don't think we will be able to lower taxes and it is my hope He agreed a program to raise appropriations for stale hospitals for the insane. The chief need, he said, was for increasing :he number of physicians to care for the 6,600 patients at Cheroe, Clarinda, Mount Pleasant and Independence institutions. Board members argued that "in the long run the program will prove an economy since the cost of patients who, through better care, will be returned to normalcy, will be eliminated." jiven Instructions by Her Mother Before. Leaving for Austria. LONDON, (iP) -- The Duke of iVindsor's sister, the Princess Roy- ' al Mary, received last minute advice before her departure Saturday for Enzesfeld on n secret mission to help the a.bdicated monarch solve his financial problems. Princess Mary, accompanied by her husband, the Earl of Harewood, also was believed to have been entrusted by the government with the delicate mission of put- ing the duke's exile on a more stable and even quieter basis. Edward was described in au- horilative reports from Enzcs- 'eld as anxious to complete the 'inancial settlement--cither from he national treasury or the royal ncome--as he plans to wed Mrs. tValiis Simpson April 27, the day I is now expected her divorce will become final.

Government officials, it was said, were anxious to wind up the final phases of the abdication so lot even a hint of "the king across the waters" would be raised dur- ng the coronation celebration in May of his brother, George VI. Herman Rogers, Mrs. Wallis Simpson's Riviera host, said Saturday he knew nothing about reports that April 27 had been set for her wedding to former King Edward VIII. Art authoritative source declared Friday in Vienna that the Duke of Windsor and Mrs. Simpson had decided to be married either in Vienna or al. nearby Enzesfeld castle on April 27.

Confidence persisted thai the crests now rasping dike tops ultimately would pass into the Gulf of Mexico without further major damage but the Hood fighters admitted a severe storm any lime in the next few days could precipitate a grave crisis. Lash Choppy Waves. A rising wind gave emphasis to this fear Saturday by lashing choppy waves against levees in several exposed places in the Cairo-Memphis sector but splash boards sheathed the dikes at the chief danger points and no material damage was done. Meanwhile, additional fatalities pushed to 400 the deaths charged to the flood while swift recession of the Ohio cut into the total of 1,000,000 refugees by sending thousands back to sodden homes. Louisville's joy at reclaiming more and more territory from the retreating Ohio was shaken by e x p l o s i o n s and fire which wrecked two buildings.

One of the points the ex-king's sister was expected to discuss was .he sale of Edward's private es- .ate of Sandringham which Edward VII, his grandfather, built for 51,500,000. Never Liked Estate. Windsor, who never has liked the estate left him personally by George V, was reported to want 5750,000 for it, while his mother and King George VI, although anxious to buy it, "were said to feel they could not pay more than $500,000. In addition to bills and pre- abdication debts, the duke is keeping up the Rothschild chateau near Vienna where he is living at a cost of more than $20,000 a year. Parliamentary opposition to granting him a $125,000 annual allowance was reported developing. Removal of the Scotland Yard detectives from Mrs. Simpson's villa of refuge .-it Cannes, France, was taken as evidence of the government's interest in- winding up the aftermath of the crucial battle between constitution and love and that the king's proctor would not interfere in making her divorce absolute.
