W. Kindig has filed his report and decision hi the case o: Bechtel Trust company, et al, complainants, vs. l o w a-Wisconsin Bridge company, defendant, and Fayette D. ' Kendrick and other stockholders, intervenors, pending in the federal court for the northern district of Iowa, holding most of the alleged $200,000 bond issue of the bridge company was procured fraudulently and without consideration and is therefore invalid. In this case the complainants sought to foreclose the alleged bond issue. The stockholders organized a stockholders committee and by their attorneys, F. .A. Onejes, Mason City, and C. N. Doha of St. Paul, in tervened, filed petition of intervention alleging that proper defense would not be made without such in tervention and charging that th bonds and trust deed sought to hi foreclosed had been procured by John A. Thompson and his associ ates, formerly, of Des Moines and now of St. Petersburg, Fla., as a part of a fraudulent scheme, plan and conspiracy, without proper con sideration to the Bridge company and that the alleged bond issue was invalid and void. Depositions Taken. A large number of depositions were taken in Minnesota, De Moines and Chicago and the casi then came' on for hearing befon Judge J. W. Kindig, special master in chancery, appointed by George C. Scott, judge of the federal court for the northern district of Iowa The bearing started at Des Mpines on July 15, 1935, and after proceeding one week there continued for another week in the federal courtroom at Mason City. Quit a number of stockholders were called as witnesses at the Mason City trial. Written briefs and arguments were filed and oral arguments were later made jefoer the master, Judge.Kindig, at Sioux City. Judge Kindig in his report finds from the evidence that the directors of the Bridge company (except for Mr. Haehlen) of the corporation failed to defend in good faith and ihat the stockholders, intervenors, were entitled to defend on behali of ·he corporation. That although the mortgage on the property of the de- r endant, bridge company, is in the nature of a deed of trust to secure onds, yet, so far as the defense in- olved is concerned,' the position of ie complainants is analogous to an ttempt on the part of the plaintiff to foreclose an ordinary mortgage securing a note and that fraud and want of consideration are available to the defendant and intervenors against the complainants and alleged bondholders. Gained Advantage. "That where as in the case at bar, Thompson, a stockholder and director of the Bridge company and also a stockholder and director of the Phoenix Finance System, Inc., and affiliated companies gained a personal advantage as he did in the bond issue, while he as such stockholder and director controlled both the Bridge company and the Phoen ix Finance System, Inc., and affiliated companies, the burden was on inTM to show that the transactions by the Bridge company and the Phoenix Finance System, Inc., and affiliated companies, were entirely fair, free from fraud, and overreaching," the opinion stated. "That under the facts found it is apparent as a matter of -law that the complainants did not furnish the necessary proof to sustain the validity of the bonds, except the bonds specifically mentioned in paragraph 10 6f the finding of fact and the prima facie showing made in the first instance by the complainants has been overcome by the evidence of the intervenors except as to those bonds specifically named as having consideration in paragraph 10 of the finding of fact and all the said bonds not named in said paragraph 10 of the finding of fact as having a consideration are illegal and void because they were issued fraudulently:" Judge Kindig in his report and findings holds that from the evi dence that the issue of the bonds was fraudulently procured by John A. Thompson, Phoenix Finance System, Inc., and associates as to $172,875 of the $200,000 of bonds and that these bonds were issued without consideration, obtained by fraudulent scheme, plan and conspiracy and are invalid and void. Cost Divided. · Judge Kindig in his report and findings further finds that the remaining S27.125 of bonds issued to various persons are based on considerations to that extent and are valid to that extent only, and it is further held that the complainants shall pay seven-eighths of the costs and tie defendant Bridge company and intervenors, one-eighth. This report and finding has been filed with the clerk of the federal court at Pubuque and each side has 20 days within which to file excep ;ions thereto and at which time or promptly thereafter the report will come on for healing before Judge Scott.

All Can Meet on Common Ground With Respect for Differences, Speakers Say Harmony and Understanding Stressed by Father Cassidy, Rabbi'Grossfield and the Rev. William Galbreth. Inter-faith good will can be achieved among Catholics, protestants and Jews by meeting on common ground in co-operation and friendliness on the one hand and respecting the differences on the other, speakers declared at the community good will day meeting at the high school auditorium Sunday afternoon. · The three faiths were represented by Father J. K. Cassidy of St. Joseph's Catholic church, the Rev. William Galbreth, pastor of the Olivet M. E. church, and Rabbi Avery J. Grossfield of the Jewish congregation. CATHOLIC "I Do Not Minimize These Differences." "I can make my most important and most fundamental contribution to the cause of good will by living up to'the teachings of the Catholic church, by being a good Catholic," said Father Cassidy. "As you know Christ reduced His teachings to the Great Law of Love--the love of God and love of neighbor. The same can be said for the teachings of the Catholic church, which are the teachings of Christ. "As a Catholic, I can promote good will by fostering and promoting Christian education. The teachings of Christ and the charity of Christ are all very beautiful in theory; they cannot produce the desired effect in our living unlc-ss they are instilled in the minds and hearts of the young by a thorough Christian education. "And so we Catholics, at a tremendous cost to ourselves and a tremendous saving to the community at large, maintain a system of education of our own in which the teachings of Christ are presented not as an isolated and separate subject for a brief half hour or hour a day, but in such a way that they interpret and vitalize every other subject in the curriculum and come to permeate every phase of the pupils' daily living. In promoting such a system of education I fee] that I as a Catholic am making a most valuable contribution to the cause of good will. Can Promote Good Will. "Unless there is good will and harmony in the family, the fundamental and most important unit of society, there cannot be harmony and good will in society as a whole. Therefore as a Catholic, I can promote social good will be defending the sanctity "and integrity of tho Christian family. I need not remind ou of the attacks, pseudo-scientific and popular, .that are being made n our day on this most sacred of nstitutions. Lawlessness and good will do not go together. As a Catholic I can iromote good will by combating our ;reat American national vice of awlessness by insisting on respect 'or authority. First of all respect : or authority in the home, then in :he school, and finally in the state as a citizen. And as a Catholic I can make that respect and the consequent obedience to authority a work of love rather than a reluctant compliance born of fear of punishment by viewing lawfully const! tuted authority as a manifestation of the authority of God and elevating obedience to the plane of a moral virtue with a corresponding obligation in conscience. That, I feel, an important contribution to our civic or national good will. Caused by "Bad Living." "Professor Seabury in his lecture :o the Woman's club .here recently said that the depression from which we are suffering was not caused by any act of God or law of economics but by our bad thinking. May I go a step further than the professor and say that it was caused not so much by our had thinking as by our 'bad living. It was our greed, pur selfishness, our inhumanity, our many crying injustices that brought us to the present crisis. Indeed, we may say. if the virtues of justice ind charity had prevailed in industry and business, we would have no depression today. "As a Catholic, I can do much to promote good will in business and ndustry if I make social justice and social charity the guiding principles of my business dealings and if I strive to make these indispensable virtues the soul of our whole industrial system. "May I say just a final word now about what is perhaps the most im- jortaut type of good will--the type :hat occasioned our meeting today-- ·eligious good will or tolerance. Tolerance, you know, is traditionally an American virtue. Nurtured early in our history by persecuted religious roups which had sought our shores as a haven of religious liberty, toleration has. thank God, remained ;hrough our history a characteristic virtue. May it always remain so. Can Promote Tolerance. "I, as a Catholic, can promote tolerance, or good will between re- igions, by according to other religious groups the same freedom of elief and practice I ask for myself. I recogniize, as President Roosevelt so well put it in his recent address on brotherhood day, that there are honest differences of re- igious belief among our citizens': but I also recognize, again in the words of our president that 'it is a avt of our American heritage to ·espect those differences.' And .hese are real, fundamental differences of belief--not merely imaginary or superficial ones. As a Catho- ic I do not minimize these differences, rather T insist upon them. "And yet, my friends, these dif- ferences, real and fundamental though they be, should not constitute a barrier to friendly interest and co-operation. We can differ sincerely in belief and still be good friends, friends who have a multitude of problems and interests in- comon--problems that can be solved only by common thought and effort--interests that must bring us together in closest co-operation." PROTESTANT "Can't Bury Our Brother Religiously." "We are the song and daughters of one common father," said the Rev. Mr. Galbreth, who stressed the common meeting ground of the different faiths. "We may be different typs of sons, but are sons. We may be loyal or disloyal, · we may be kindly or cruel, we may be useful or useless, we may be worthy or unworthy of the name of sons but we are sons. That is the common ground upon which we meet today. "As the sons and daughters of that same father we are apparently given a wide latitude as to what shall be the quality or degree of our devotion and service. · "And we are also fortunate today in that we are citizens of a country where those privileges are still counted as sacred both to the individual and the group. Has Divine Plan. "To achieve inter-faith good will Protestantism may foster and encourage whenever and wherever possible movements which have for :heir specific aim and purpose the magnifying and intensifying of the ssues upon which we may meet upon common ground rather than an exaltation of the issues which ;end to keep us. aloof from each other. ' " "Second, we should recognize that 3od has a plan that He is desirous tf having adopted and put into realization for humanity, a Divine )lan, and that all efforts and serv- ces of mankind either as individuals or groups that can be worked nto that plan God will welcome, and that all plans and purposes of men, no matter how elaborate that cannot be worked into the 'plan will be rejected. Has Gripping Questions. "God has written into the records of men two gripping questions that no generation of civilization has ever attempted to adequately answer. The first was asked by God of Cain who had taken the life of his brother, Abel, and through Cain it has been passed down to all posterity. That question is : 'Where is thy brother?' "Cain answered in derision: 'Am I my brother's keeper?' My conviction is that we cannot bury our brother, racially, socially, economically, religiously and expect to hide it away from our Father. Who Is Neighbor? "The second question is: 'And who is my neighbor?' This question was asked by a certain lawyer who came to the Master saying: "What shall I do to inherit eternal life?' In answer Jesus said: 'Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul and with all thy strength and with all thy mind: And thy neighbor as thyself.' To his query as to who was his' neighbor Jesus answered with the parable of the Good Samaritan. "We believe that a present day application of the principle of that parable would not justify us in limiting our neighborliness to our respective groups. Jews, Catholic and Protestants. These are man made divisions. Christ through this parable is teaching us that which makes a man deserving of the title of neighbor is that which goes out of his life in service and benefaction to this fellowman, particularly to those who may be in need of that service rather than in that which may come to him by way of selfish gain." JEWISH "Each Has His Part to Play in Symphony." Rabbi Grossfield likened the many divisions of religious belief to the instruments in a symphony orchestra, each instrument merging harmoniously with the other instruments to produce beautiful harmony, at the touch of a baton, which causes the bedlam of tuning operations of the individual instruments to cease and the music to begin. Difference Creates Interest. "Suppose we v.'ere all Catholics, Protestants or Jews, or Buddhists .or Mahommedans. Monotony would ensue, not harmony. It is this difference that creates interest--that creates food for thought. If I were to answer the question 'Inter- Faith Good-Will--How Can It Be Achieved?' I would say not by tol- RELATIONSHIP OF LAW AND GOSPEL GIVEN BY REITAN Evangelist Holding Services at Trinity Lutheran Church Here. The evangelistic meetings at the Trinity Lutheran church conducted by the Rev. J. O. Reitan were well attended at all services Sunday. At the early service the speaker preached on the theme "Complete Restoration," Matthew 9, 1-S. The sermon related the healing of the man sick of the palsy, who had been brought to Christ by friends who were concerned about bringing the man to Christ. Without these friends he could not have come into His presence. So there are souls today that the Lord lays upon the hearts of His children, that they are to bring to the Lord that they may accept Him as their 'Saviour. At the second morning service the theme was "Peace," John 14:27. The speaker showed from many Bible texts that man by his carnal nature is at war with God and that it is only when man admits that he is in the wrong and that he has sinned against God and because of his sin deserves nothing less than eternal damnation that God is able to give peace to the penitent soul. The evening service presented in word and picture the relation of the law and the gospel. Since sin en- entered into the heart of man he can not be saved by his good deeds or by any effort of his own but must be saved by the mercy of God in Christ Jesus, the evangelist said. Miss Clarence Oddeu sang "The Vision of Christ," Birkedahl-Overhy. "God Is Spirit." "The Holy Spirit is God in action," said D. L. Kratz. pastor of the Church of Christ, in his Sunday morning sermon. "God is Spirit To disbelieve in the Holy Spirit would be to disbelieve .in God. The Christian believes that there is a spiritual basis to all existence. Modern science is revealing the universe is an expression of cosmic energy. Radio waves, light rays, kinetic force, molecular activity, even the electronic energy within the atom are but expressions of a divine energy that pervades all space. "In the primordial chaos before creation the Spirit of God moved on the face of the waters, and was the active force that, directed by the word of God, called forth light, order and life. All creations of higher forms of life are- the act of that spirit. Spiritual life depends upon a birth of the Spirit through the implanting of the word, or gospel message. Christians today are assured of their divine relationship ay the indwelling Spirit." This sermon was tha third in a pre-Easter series on "Our Great ihristian Beliefs." "Soldiers of Christ." At the St. James Lutheran church the Rev. O. Mall spoke to the young people, using the text, St. John 8, 31-32. "You, my young friends," the speaker said, "are soldiers of Christ and of the cross. As soldiers march forward, not backward, and upward, not downward, and fight for Christ and His righteous cause. "You must be interested in your church and interested in God's Word. Jesus speake to you, saying, 'If ye continue in My Word, then are. ye My disciples.' You have made the beginning, but you must now continue. The Lenten season is a good time to fully consecrate yourself to Christ, the living Savior. "It is any pastor's wish that his Can Spring Be Par Behind?

(Lock Photo, Kayenay Engraving) young people be interested in their church. As young Christians you must be active. Can the person on ie outside see by your actions that- you are really interested in your religion and church? "If you are faiinful, you will con- :inue. Then-Jesus has promised to receive you as His disciples. Through Jesus and His Word you will receive the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Truth and freedom go hand in hand, but truth comes first, then freedom. If you wish to be set free from the bondage of sin and come into the freedom of Christ's kingdom, then continue in the truth of God's Word." Preaches on Tithing. "Nearly 100 years ago in New York state, a man began to stir together oil, fat, and lye and make soap. He made it in a large kitchen kettle. When he had poured and molded it into cakes he peddled it. It was a new business. He was poor and had no capital. But there was a difference between this man and other men who have begun business on a shoe-string. He made a pledge to God that if God would bless him, he would pay one-tenth of all his income, after deducting the expenses of his business, to God's work. "And that," added the Rev. J. Lee Lewis, at the First Baptist church, '·was the beginning of a great life, a great business and a string of benefactions which is blessing the world today. For the man who began tithing was Mr. Colgate, the first of the famous soap manufacturers by that name, the one for whom Colgate university at. Hamilton, N. Y., is named, and one who through his children has continued to give large sums for kingdom work in this and other countries. For God entrusts money to those who can and will use it for His glory. "All of us can make the pledge that Jacob made after the dream of the ladder reaching to heaven. He said, 'and of all that God shall give me, I will give a tenth unto Him.' Giving the tenth unto his diety is a very ancient custom and was and is practiced by other peoples beside the old Hebrews. For tithing recognizes God as the owner of the land from which comes sustenance for the farmtr and herder." "Substance" Discussed. "Substance" was the subject of the lesson-sermon in the Churches of Christ, Scientist Sunday. The Golden Text was from Proverbs 3:9. "Honor the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase." The lesson-sermon comprised quotations from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook, ''Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. One of the Bible citations read: "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so teat things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. But diligently seek Him." (Hebrews 11:1, 3, 6.) Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook was the following: "Spirirt is -the only substance and consciousness recognized by divine Science. That matter is substantial or has life and sensation, ia one of the false beliefs of mortals, and exists only in a suppositions mortal consciousness." (Page 278.) erance but by appreciating and acknowledgment of the fact that each has his part to play. If anyone were missing a void would exist. "Only by bringing out the best in each and trying to have each subserve the highest interests of humanity can we as the instruments in the orchestra create harmony. Each religion has its place and each religion must play its part, conducted by the Master's baton. "We 'are all bora alike. We all go through this world and life alike. We all strive to make it a better place in which to live. And we all strive for some measure of salvation in .the hereafter. It is this that should be our guiding light--an universal brotherhood through love that comes through understanding. "It lies within us to promote the feeling of brotherhood and strive to live up to the ideals of our own religion, yet see good in the religion of the other person;" Questions Discussed. Following the discussions of the subject by the representatives of the three faiths, they were each asked six questions regarding their own faiths' by the Rev. Alexander S. Carlson, pastor of the First Congregational church, and in turn answered the questions according to their own beliefs. The questions and answers were as interesting to those attending the service as were the discussions of the subject. The Rev. Mr. Carlson also introduced the speakers and presided in the absence of the Rev. George K. Davies, chairman and pastor of the Presbyterian church, who was unable to attend. The invocation was given by the Rev. J. Lee Lewis, pastor of the First Baptist church, and the benediction was offered by the Rev; David L. Kratz. pastor of the Church of Christ. Dr. R. F. Kunz led the singing, accompanied by Lester i _ Milligan at the piano.

Gullable ..Messenger of Good Will Accepts Rudd As Hoover's Birthplace Mason City was visited Saturday afternoon by a good will delegation from Alexandria, Minn., as the last stop in a week's itinerary through Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri in the. interests of the summer resort facilities at Alexandria. The group of 19 men, who exhibited remarkable specimens of fish caught near Alexandria, worked in a little horseplay to enliven their trip. One of the members of the party, nicknamed "Elmer," knew that Herbert Hoover was born in Iowa. Consequently, when the group passed the log cabin at Rudd, home of the Arrowhead museum, this was pointed out as Hoover's birthplace. Seeing some relics were on display there, the gullible traveler readily believed this. The town of Boone was pointed out to the credulous "Elmer" as the home of the pioneer, Daniel Boonc. He also accepted the story of how the first Indian to be converted to Christianity in a certain vicinity was a maiden who bore the name, "Olia" and hence the name of the town, "Indianola." While in Mason City, the delegation made headquarters at Hotel Hanford and was visited by several local residents. Members of the group said that poor "Elmer" would likely speak before the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce at an early date on "Historic Points of Interest We Visited in Iowa."
