THURSDAY, MARCH 2, 1933. pope had been elected came through the rising of white smoke from the chimney of the Sistine chapel, in the traditional manner. A throng of 50,000 persons or more joyfully shouted when the thin wisp of smoke appeared, signifying that the two hundred sixty-second pontiff had been chosen. Crowds Push to Steps As soon as the smoke appeared, the crowds pushed up on to the steps of St. Peter's for the announcement of the cardinal elected and the name he would take as head of 331,500,000 Catholics. Many of those in the great piazza knelt in their first reverence to the new pope before they knew his identity. The crowd, although orderly, broke through the cordon of car- abinleri and fascist militiamen to ' swarm up the steps of the basilica. Faithful Are Called The smoke scarcely had disappeared five minutes after its first wraith-like showing before the Vatican radio broadcast a call to the faithful of Rome to come to St. Peter's square for the official proclamation of the election from the central balcony. A crowd of approximately 30000 in St. Peter's square raised the cry "there it is' appeared. when the smoke Japan Aids Mothers TOKIO, (U.PJ--The government has announced that women and their newly-born babies will receive free medical attention.

MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Ontjes Enters More ExhibitsloFTrSai Plaintiff's Attorney Requests List of Company Stockholders A dozen checks were added Thursday to the thousands of exhibits already produced in the $2,393,143 suit against the C. H. McNider estate by F. A. Ontjes, attorney for the claimants. . Mr. Ontjes claimed some of the checks were written by C. H. McNider payable to the Northwestern States Portland Cement company for dividends from stock in the Alpha Cement company. At the close of the Thursday morning session Judge Henry N. Graven allowed Mr. Ontjes' request for a list of Northwestern States company stockholders which would include those of Oct. 6, 1931. JMcNlder Got Dividends It was brought out in the testimony of Peter Anderson that C. H. McNider was the only person taking care of the Northwestern States company interests in the Alpha Cement company. Mr. Anderson also testified that Mr. McNider received the dividends from the Alpha stock and turned them over to the Northwestern States company. Mr. Ontjes questioned Mr. Anderson closely as to the procedure in which Mr. McNider turned over personal checks to the Northwestern States company for Alpha stock dividends. The company secretary testified that he had no recollection as to the procedure except that sometimes Mr. McNider personally turned in the checks and at other times a clerk would bring the checks to the cashier's office. Check Exhibit Delayed The ordered exhibit of checks and vouchers for legal services rendered the Northwestern States company from 1920 to 1923 was not produced in the Thursday morning session and Mr. Anderson, secretary of the company, explained that the exhibit was being collected. The checks and vouchers, which VIr. Ontjes asserted would total approximately 370,000, are expected to boost the total number of exhibits well over the 3,000 figure A request that Mr. Anderson produce the checks and vouchers vas honored Wednesday by Judge Graven on the argument ihat they yould show the purpose of trips made by Mr. McNider to New York, Chicago, Washington, D.

Government Testimony by Mr. Anderson had indicated that some of the trips might have been made in connection with a government claim made in March, 1921, that the local cement company had made insufficient tax payments. The claimants have attempted to show that Mr. McNider who at that time was president and general manager of the local cement company, made the trips to buy Alpha Cement company stock and that the .Northwestern States company paid his expenses for the journeys. Won't Force Secretary Profits on the Alpha stock which Mr. McNider purchased in his own name are the basis of the present suit, the claimants contending that they should have been paid to the company's stockholders. The judge refused, however, to force the secretary to produce the actual correspondence file concerning the litigation, holding that the file might contain confidential and privileged matter. He instructed Mr. Anderson to acquaint himself with the content of the file so as to be able to answer questions concerning the trips made by Mr. McNider in connection with the litigation. Difficulty encountered by Mr. Ontjes in his attempt fo draw information from Mr. Anderson finally exasperated him to the point of asking: "Have you not been constantly in consultation with defense attorneys durine this trial!" The witness, who was called by Mr. Ontjes to testify for.the claimants and has been on the stand intermittently for nearly three weeks, answered that he had had some conferences with defense attorneys. The secretary's redirect examination by Mr. Ontjes was interrupted Wednesday afternoon to permit the questioning of Prof. Joseph Beach, head of the department of English of the University of Minnesota. The professor testified that he held 30 shares of stock in the company and that he would not have given proxies to the company's officers if he had known the facts alleged in this suit He admitted on cross examina? :ion by John Senneff, defense attorney, that he had never attended a stockholders' meeting and t h a t le did not know that the Northwestern States company h a d maintained an office in Minneapolis for more than 20 years.

Following the operation, which was performed by Dr. F. M. Tushla with a local anaesthetic, Mrs. Cogdill got up from the operating table and walked calmly and steadily to ler room and tucked herself into bed. - . As frantic nurses, whose attention was momentarily distracted sought her out, the patient asked: "My lands, is there anything unusual about that?"

Is a. life sketch of the new pope of the Catholic church: Papal diplomacy seldom had a more able exponent than'Eugenio Cardinal Pacelli, who as nuncio to the young German republic accomplished the seemingly impossible achievement of a concordat between Prussia which in its majority is Protestant, and the Holy See. In negotiating this highly important treaty in 1929, Pacelli displaced such rare diplomatic abilty that the late Pope Pius XI in December of the same year elevated him to the dignity of cardinal and two months later appointed him papal secretary of state to succed Pietro Cardinal Gasparri who had retired because of age. At the time of his appointment as papal secretary, Pacelli suggested that he should not come to Home then because of unfinished work in Germany, but the Pone answered: "You will finish it here, together with other still more important work." Held Important Office Thus Pacelli became one of the youngest members of the College of Cardinals--for he was then 54 --and took over a post probably the most important in the Vatican government aside from the position of Pontiff. Without arms or force, the papal secretary o£ state must safeguard the rights of Catholics everywhere, must understand local conditions and national customs, rights and prejudices. Eugenio Pacelli was born March . 1876, in -Home, of an Italian noble family'whose relations with the Vatican had always been intimate. Thus his father was dean of the secular consistorial advo- cature and his brother, Francesco represented the Vatican in the dealings with Mussolini for settling the age-long quarrel between the Italian government and the Holy See. Sent to Munich Pacelli studied theology at Rome and spent the larger part of his career as churchman in the papal Jiplomatic service. Soon after b£- ng ordained in February, 1901 }e was assigned to duty in the office of the papal secretaryship of state by Pope Leo XIII. Under Pius X, when the late Merry del Val was secretary of state, Pacelli w a s appointed undersecretary, which position he held also under Benedict XV and Cardinal Gasparri. This office Pacelli held from 1912 to 1917. The accomplished, serious Roman nobleman succeeded, so much so that the Vatican next slated him for abroad When, in April, 1917, the papal nuncio at Munich died, Pacelli was sent to fill his place. He arrived in May, 1917, at a time when Germany was .engaged in her struggle against the Allies. At the end of June of the same year Pacelli had an important conversation with Bethmann-Hollweg on Germany's aims in the war and later was received by the kaiser at his general headquarters at the front, delivering to him a letter from Benedict XV in which the Pope urged him to do everything possible for the restoration of peace, even if it had to cost Germany some sacrifices. He also asked the emperor to use his influence to put an end to the deportations of the Belgians. Pacelli's report on these interviews as well as those from other papal representatives abroad may have contributed to the famous attempt made by Benedict XV on Aug. 1 to mediate between the warring nations. Showed Rare Courage During the revolution he showed rare courage when, in 1919, a group of spartacists, pistols in m-"?? s invade l the nunciature. Without flinching, adorned in his purple robe, he met the revolutionists, quietly pointed out that they were on soil privileged as extraterritoriality, and-warried them against laying hands on a foreign diplomat. His magnetic personality won the day, and the spartacists withdrew, somewhat abashed. In October, 193S, Cardinal Pacelli visited the United States looming in the- closing stages of a presidential campaign in which Father Charles E. Coughlin of Detroit had figured in front page headlines because of bitter personal attacks upon the integrity of President Franklin D. Roosevelt the Vatican prelate's advent caused wide spread speculation. But he insisted his Journey was only "for a vacation." For weeks he was secluded with taends on Long Island. Then he made an air tour which took him to t he Pacific coast and back in Jess than six days. He visited Washington, Philadelphia, Georgetown university, where he received an honorary doctorate in canon and civil law; South Bend, Ind.. where Notre Dame university con- lerred the degree of doctor of letters; Chicago, St. Paul, San Francisco, St. Louis and Cincinnati. Lunched With Koosevelt On Nov. 5, two days after the election, Pacelli had luncheon with President Roosevelt at Hyde Park Afterwards the cardinal talked freely and admiringly of the scenes, people and church organizations he had encountered on his transcontinental tour. But whenever interviewers' questions veered toward rumored establishment of diplomatic relations b e t w e e n Washington and Vatican City or toward Father Coughlin's activities, Bishop Francis J. Spellman, a member of Pacelli's party intervened, saying the cardinal was not giving interviews on public subjects. Pacelli sailed for home Nov. 7. European political developments formed the background for the chief problems confronting Pacelli as head of the diplomatic organization of the Vatican. City Manager Plan in Sioux City Loses SIOUX CITY, (ff)_By a vote of 11,372 to 7,861 residents here defeated a proposal to establish a city manager form of municipal government to replace the commission plan used since 1910. Ryal Miller, head of the city manager committee, said the proposal would be submitted to the voters again as soon as state statute permits HOPE DARE TO WED DIXIE DAVIS Couple to Be Married Before Sentence Is Imposed on Davis NEW YORK, (U.PJ-J. Richard J Du "? Davis, former attorney for the slam Dutch Schultz. and Hope Dare, his showgirl sweetheart, plan to be married, it was learned Thursday, before sentence is imposed on Davis next Wednesday as an accomplice of James J. Hines in the operation of Schultz's $20,000,000-a-year policy racket. ' Both have submitted to blood tests, the first step required in obtaining a license, and will be free to marry by the end of the week, it was said. Davis was one of the key witnesses in District Attorney Thomas E. Dewey's successful prosecution of Tammany District Leader Hines, convicted of selling political protection to the policy gang from 1932 to the fall of 1936. He pleaded guilty as a co-defendant of Hines and testified against him. Supreme Court Justice Ferdinand Pecora will pass sentence on Davis Wednesday, and it appeared likely that the dapper young attorney, recently divorced by his first wife, would spend his honeymoon in prison. Dewey, however, will recommend leniency for Davis in view of his aid to the stale. TRAFFIGNEARLY NORMAL IN IOWA Sun Goes to Work on Snow Blanket Now Covering State DES MOINES. (JP)--The sun went to work in earnest on the Iowa snow blanket Thursday while traffic stepped up to its normal pace on most of the state's highways. Iowa patrol officials reported all main traffic arteries open to two-way traffic but warned hurrying motorists against occasional slippery spots. The weather bureau said temperatures will rise into the 40 degree range over much 'of the state Thursday. The resultant runoff from melting snows will not be heavy, however, the bureau said, because lower layers of the foot-thick blanket will absorb most o£ the moisture. Streetcar service neared normal In Des Moines Thursday after a two day battle against the heavy snow. The weatherman saw unsettled conditions approaching northwest Iowa, with possibly rain or snow in store for Friday. Some cloudiness" was reported over the state, with temperatures varying from normal to three degrees below the early-March longtime average. Mercury readings, however, were much higher than. Wednesday. At Iowa Falls, for example, the temperature Thursday morning was 20 degrees above zero, compared with zero Wednesday at the same time.
