While no : further engagements; were announced immediately, her: attendance as guest .of honor Fri-. day night at ,a .dinner .given by. Henry Clews, Jr., of New York, was understood to mean she was ready to take her place in the re- sort's' round of parties. The dinner-dance at which she made her 1937 Riviera debut was pronounced a great success, despite the eager crowds that Hocked to .the: restaurant when .-word. of the party leaked out.

"twill not be many days unless, The almanacs are wrong; But who would think the coming spring, Could make each day so long. The first robin is only three weeks away and spring (see any calendar or almanac) is,but five weeks away. Let us all be gay and sing glad songs. If we are able to sing after being frozen so long, But at that, U is better'to be slightly frost.bitten than .to be swimming around in a flock of highly agitated water as the flood victims were just recently doing-. It is better to be a little cold than to be a whole lot wet. Especially In the winter time.

There is .noth- ng like a good soft seat in a snow rift to cause a man to hanker to rise and walk. Except, of course, a red hot stove. Few things, will :ause a person to move with more ;uddenness and energy than rlose contact wiltva stove that is heated lo a red hot condition. In oiher words, a red hot stove s not so hot as a place on which to sit down. t ___ ML , . A RED HOT. STOVE, AS LIKE AS NOT, ON WHICH TO SIT, IS NOT SO HOT. A If there is a wild l i f e conserva- :ion officer or organization available they could'do much (o help the cause by doing some crow eradicating in the vicinity o£ Dougherty. We doubt if anywhere in the state there arc more crows to the square mile. And When'it comes to destroying wilt life the common crow is an ex pert. They are-especially vicious in the spring during the nestin periods of other birds. . '. Crows roost mostly in ever, green groves. If their roosting places were wired and connected up with dynamite cartridges, a. good many thousand could be eliminated i n , a night or two. It ;is being done in other parts of the country. It should be done here at-liome. : Lester Campbell popped off a few of the black varmints the oth- er.day. A train killed a rabbi near the elevator and while a flock of crows were disposing-o: its carcass, he sneaked up on then with a 12 gauge shooting gun. Anc when Les explodes a 12 gun in the general direction of some 15 or 20 crows, it is a bad day Ipi the crows. A , ' The crows are black and villainous, And seldom are they virtuous; The most oC us would be elated If they were all eliminated. Wherein-Ye Col Conductor Is Taken for a Hide. The loading platform of the Pfaff Baking company was a busy place, at 5:30 o'clock in the morning. Outside the wind was blowing a gale, the air was full of snow which was drifiting into little piles here and there. Six trucks were loading and six had already departed. In all directions the} went serving towns' as far as 50 or more miles distant. As we waited for Harry Russell with whom we had engaged passage to Dougherty, we watched the driver-salesmen loading. The pastry was stored in small compartments and cubby holes, the bread, in boxes, was stored in the body of the trucks. One round faced, handsome driver, who claimed to be a Dutchman, made quite a fuss about the loading of his truck, but finally came to terms with tlie checker and there was no bloodshed. Harry had applied chains to the rear tires of his truck. We would, he said, get through to Dougherty all right if the snow was not too deep and if the weather did not get ton bad. It was still dark when we left the plant and the wind still howling. When we got out of town it was decidedly worse. A one way track and that a poor one and practically invisible ' through the snow filled almosphere. Three miles outjwe met a plow, and. it was - better going. Half way to Rockwell the wind began to calm down and the sky cleared. A pale, sickly looking crescent moon ap- seared low. in the southeast. By the time we reached Rockwell, it vas getting light in the east and Ihe snow had quit drifting. Heading south out of Rockwell considerable snow resistance was met up with. It was drifted badly and was hard packed. Though one .ong drift we fairly held our areath, and then as another and another, each one deeper than the last was encountered, we were all set to unload and start walking. But Harry had an ace up his sleeve we didn't know about. It was a double back up reverse go ahead gear. Slipping into ihat, we barely moved, but the Shevrolay kept going. Drift alter drift we en countered and the super-super- low took us through. And at 7:30 a. m. we were in the biggest little city in tlie state. It was all in the day's work for Harry. Rain or shine, wind or snow or cold, each week day he starts out at. 5:45 jn the morning. The time .of his "return depends entirely on road condition^. For us it would be a nerve racking job. If Harry had any nerves, he kept them well under control. . ^__ A Justly Famous Last Words. By the way Mr. Supreme Court Justices, what is your reaction to the new deal? FIND NO TRACE OF BURIED PAIR Rescue Workers Hunt Two : Men Caught by Snow- slide in Canada. . -REVELSTOKE, B. C., (Canadian Press)--Desperate shovelling by scores of rescue workers failed Saturday to disclose a trace of tw'o men buried under a 100 foot snowslide in five cars of a Canadian Pacific snowplow train. The frantic diggers had worked m'ore than 30 hours without even reaching (lie engine, spreader, wing plow and two cabooses in which Conductor J. : M. McDonald and Fireman W . ' C . Christopherson were imprisoned. When the avalanche struck {he train near Illecillewaet, 23 miles east of here, Thursday, four units were swept down a 50 foot embankment and buried beneath 100 feet of snow. One caboose, in which McDon- ald was riding, broke loose from the rest of the'train and crashed through the deep'snow drifts at the edge of the Illecillewaet river, 25 feet further on. Engineer James L. Carmichael and snow plow Foreman W. Rande escaped. ··· · Blames Motorist in S. P. Train's Wreck FRESNO, Cal., (£)--An alleged remark, "Let's go play railroad" figured Saturday in District Attorney Dan F. Conway's investigation of the wreck of the Southern Pacific's "Owl" passenger train which killed two trainmen. Conway said two witnesses told him Mrs. Frank K. Ritchie made the remark to her husband at a cafe and that the couple drove their automobile down the railroad right-of-way /or 200 feet before it stalled and they leaped out. Laboratory tests, Conway added, -showed Ritchie'was intoxicated. He announced he will ask the grand jury Monday to indict Ritchie for manslaughter. HUNT FOR BODY OF MISSING GIRL Case of Mistaken Identity Believed Reason for Her Murder. COATESVILLE, Pa., (IP)--State and city officers based .their investigation Saturday of the disappearance of a IB year old high school girl on the-theory that she was murdered--mistaken for another girl. A fruitless search tor. the body of Helen Moyer started Thursday witii the discovery of her shoes, hat and ,torn school books along a road between Coatesville, where she attended school,' and her home at Modena. Mayor Albert R. Beigslrom of Modena, former Coatesville police superintendent, called the case murder. "There is no doubt in my mind that the girl was killed intention"Sunday at Local THE GOLDEN TEXT: John'10: 1 1--"I am the good shepherd: the good shep- ._ herd giveth his life for the sheep." Another Victim of Plane Crash Found; Died of Drowning SAN FRANCISCO, (/P)--Flood- ightcd-waters of south San Francisco bay early Saturday gave up he cuatlcss body of Myron Lorge, 27, of Los Angeles, one of 11 vic^ tims of Tuesday night's crash of a United airliner. Seven boats chartered by the Jniled Air Lines "took advantage of low tide after midnight to drag the bay bottom for victims. The body of John A. Grennan, St., Berkeley, Cal., real estate man, was found Friday. Both bodies were within 100 feet of the disaster scene. Five still are missing.

Two Hours Late as Mail Truck Is Seized for Debt ORANGE, N. J., (;p)_The R. F. D. was two hours late Saturday in Livingston and Roseland because a bailiff seized t h e m a i l truck for a tire debt.

Feb. 15 to March 1, 1037, according to a statement made public by Garritt E. Roelofs, executive director of the commission.

P. strategists evidently foresaw that, if their partisanship burst into an immediate chorus of invective, the popular verdict would be, "Oh, well, that's to be expected; those folk are certain to fight- whatever the present white house incumbent p roposes, anyway." Plenty Are Horrified. However, it also was easy to prophesy that plenty of democrats would be horrified by such a suggestion. It obviously was sound policy for the republicans to let democrats start the anti-administration uproar, and then say, "These democrats are on the opposite side of the party fence from us, but this is one of the limes when we must agree with them." To this "tick-tack" they have adhered with surprising unanimity. And if the democrats (especially in the senate) divide on anything approaching a 50-50 basis,,the re- pub,! icans, .small as thciE,minority is, may very well be able to cast the deciding votes. Excellent Reasoning-. It is excellent reasoning; the surprising thing is that so many republicans are capable ot reason"- ing reasonably alike. But that is the advantage of a minority. For self-preservation's sake it must stick together. A huge majority thinks itself strong enough to afford to split, and overdoes it frequently. The president's message was not intrinsically so sensational; not necessarily. Its sensalionality was partly a matter of interpretation. If the country had been looking for it, it might have been considered comparatively mild. Bolt From Blue. But it came like a bolt f rom a blue sky. No president in American past history ever so abruptly "cracked down," The questions arise: Had "F. D." this scheme in mind during his last re-election campaign? If he had, and didn't mention it. it was an omission which verges closely upon a policy of doubtful faith. If not, what stirred him up so recently? It would seem t h a t something suddenly must have aroused him to a fit of temper. What was it? Anccrcd By Articles. Well, the federal supreme court has handed out some anti-admin- istrationistic decisions which may have rankled--but they antedated the last campaign. Some newspapermen, described by their editors (perhaps unjustifiably) as "in close touch with the white house, "I have written magazine "stories" more recently, which I have had occasion to refer to hitherto, by Dr. Stanley High, George Creel and Professor Raymond Moley. S t o r i e s b y others,' too, perhaps not so well known. These articles perhaps were aggravating at the executive mansion. They have a cumulative effect. Borah in Dcfensce. . Then came Senator William E. Borah of Idaho, with his broadcast in defense of the constitution and the supreme court--which, as Borah implied--the administration appeared to be almost on the verge of attacking. Borah's broadcast so briefly preceded the presidential message as to hint at the coincidence between them. It seemed nearly as if the Idaho senator had had an advance intimation of the white house message and was seeking to forestall it--only a day or so between the two. Knew in Advance? Is it possible that the president talked with Borah?--a great constitutional authority. That the two didn't agree? That Borah determined to express himself ahead of the president? And that the president hustled to counteract Borah as speedily as possible? We shall only know when the post-humous memoirs of one of these men is published. MOTIVE SOUGHT BY DETECTIVES Explanation for Series of Annoyances to Tavern Operator Hunted. DES MOINES, (-TJ--City detectives Saturday attempted to learn whether the charge of "malicious mischief," fully explained the annoyances -to Mrs. Julia Gardner, -tavern operator, or whether a sinister motive was the cause of Mrs. Gardner's troubles. Two weeks ago Mrs. Gardner arrived at her tavern to find a group of women waiting. Each showed her an advertisement in a' paper for a waitress, although she had inserted no advertisement. Then came a man with a truckload of coal. Mrs. Gardner had ordered none. Since that time the woman told police her life had been made miserable by telephone calls in which the receiver was hung up when she answered, meaningless telegrams, and deliveries of unordered merchandise. Detectives said a rival .tavern operator seeking to drive Mrs. Gardner out of business might be responsible. One Day Old Prince Attends 1 st Function NAPLES, W)--One day old Prince Victor Emmanuel, 9 pound, dark eyed heir .apparent to the Italian throne, attended his first ceremonial function Saturday. While sleepless Neapolitans still paraded in celebration of his birth, the young namesake of King Victor Emmanuel, his grandfather, was taken to the private chap-el of the royal castle for his preliminary baptism, the rite of the lustra! water of purification. Cardinal Ascalasi, archbishop of Naples, performed the ceremony, authorized by Pope Pius XI in a special brief, administering the holy water from a golden chalice presented by the municipality of Naples. Denies Lashing of Arkansas Convicts LITTLE ROCK, Ark., (/P)_p e - nal Superintendent Tom Cogsbili S a t u r d a y denied legislators' charges t h a t lashings had driven some Arkansas convicts to suicide and crippled others. Senplor Joe Steele Hall made these claims in supporting a bill passed by the senate to fix a 60- hour work week for inmates of penal institutions. Proponents described the measure as the first step toward "humanizing'-', of'.Arkansas convicts. .·" ' , ' / : ' , : Lindberghs Land at Alexandria Instead of Flying to Cairo CAIRO, (/P)--Col. and Mrs. Charles A. Lindbergh landed at Alexandria Saturday at 2:30 p. m. Greenwich time (8:30 a. m. C. S. T.) after a flight from Mcrsa Ma- trouh in the western desert. They spent the night at the desert army post after their arrival there Friday from Tripoli. The American flyer apparently made a last minute change in his plans by flying to Alexandria instead of Cairo. Twedt Loses Suit at Algona for $414.80 ALGONA--Olaf M.
