APRIL 3 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE PAIR INDICTED IN DILLINGER BREAK Fingerprint Expert and Jail Employe Named in Grand Jury Report. CROWN POINT, Ind., April 3. (/!') Ernest Blunk, fingerprint expert, and Sam Gaboon, a jail employe, were indicted today on a charge ot aiding John Dillinger to escape from the Lake county jail here March 3. The charge is a felony, and Slunk and Cahoon on conviction would be subject to 2 to 21 years in prison. The grand jury wound up its weeks of investigation of the almost comic escape of Dillinger with a long report absolving Sheriff Lillian Holley and Prosecutor Robert G. Estill generally of blame and attributing the jail break to a combination of the desperado's own ingenuity, laxness about the county jail, collusion and inexperienced guards. Jail Proper Plate. The county jail was the proper place, mechanically, to keep Dillinger, the jurors decided, but these other factors were against it. The grand jury pointed out that Dillinger might have been transferred to the state penitentiary at Michigan City for sriekeeping but for the objections of Judge William J. Murray and the assurances of Judge Murray and William Schroeder, president of the county council, that the proper guard would be kept about the jail. State Given Rebuke.

In the neglect category the urors gave special mention to Car- Â·oll Hollcy, chief deputy sheriff and nephew of the woman sheriff; Warden Lew Baker, and seven deputies and special guards.

The famous photograph of Prosecutor Estill with his arm about the shoulders of the captive Dillinger came in for comment. The United States attorney general had called it disgraceful, but the grand jury exonerated Estill, observing that the prosecutor had been sleepless :or many hours, under severe nervous strain, and the picture was :aken in an unguarded moment.

Son of President Pays $20 Fine for Wrong Car License BOSTON, April 3. (A'l--Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr., son of the president, today pleaded guilty to operating an improperly registered automobile and paid a fine of 520 in West Roxbury district court. Young Roosevelt's car bore District of Columbia plates and it had been in the state longer than 30 days without steps being taken to obtain permission from the motor vehicle department to continue its operation. The president's son, a student at Harvard, was involved in an accident March 24, in which Mrs. Mary M. O'Leary was injured. She is recovering in a Boston hospital. PATfERSlfTO SUPPORT WINNER Kossuth Senator Says It's to Be Campaign of Principles. Globe-Gazette Free COOKING SCHOOL 7s Being Held In High School Auditorium Senator George W. Patterson of Kossuth county was a visitor in Mason City Tuesday afternoon in connection with his candidacy for the republican.lieutenant governorship nomination. "I haven't .started any speaking campaign as yet," he told a Globe- Gazette representative. The time since the special session/he explained, has been occupied in preparing his personal affairs for an active campaign between now and the June primaries. "So far as I am concerned," he added, "the campaign is going to be waged on principles rather than on personalities. While I haven't had the pleasure of meeting either one of my republican rivals for this office, 1 am prepared to support the winner, confident that he will be a vast improvement over the present incumbent of the lieutenant governor's chair." The tax bill evolved by the special session, according to Senator Patterson, is inadequate and unsatisfactory in a number of ways. It has, he believes, made the democratic administration highly vulnerable. MORE LEGUME HAY ADVOCATED District Conference of Cow Testers is Held at West Union. WEST UNION, April 3. (A'l-- E. R. Hensen, professor of farm crops at Iowa State college, told cow testers attending their spring conference here today that Iowa does not grow enough legume hay to feed its own livestock. Testers representing 10 cow testing associations in this part of the state attended the session which is one of a series. Professor Hensen said that Iowa ships in considerable legume hay every year and that a larger acreage of these crops would not only reduce the farmers' feed costs but would maintain the fertility of the soil at a higher level. By rebuilding or maintaining soil fertility, he said, the farmer could grow his grain on fewer acres and produce more of he high priced protein roughages. Professor Hensen also urged the rowing of more adequate pastures. Adequate pasture, he said, means ot only a larger acreage but a va- ety of pasture crops which will rovide continuous feed throughout he spring, summer and fall months.

WASHINGTON, April 3. .T)-A report to the house holding abov reproach the actions of Harry H Woodring, assistant secretary o war, in connection with the pur chase of 57,500,000 worth of arm airplanes was adopted unanimous! today by a military affairs subcom mittee. The report also contended certai army officials for years had been ignoring the intent of uongress and the law by purchasing airplanes without competitive bidding. Chairman Rogers (D., N. H.), had not completed the text of the report, but a rough draft of it was submitted. ' The committee decided to make a report of the $7,500,000 transaction immediately so arrangements could be made to buy the airplanes. Shortly after the PWA allocated money for the airplanes, Woodring ordered that they be purchased upon competitive bids rather than "negotiated" contracts. Specifications were drawn and submitted for bids, but the army's judge advocate general ruled the specifications barred open and free comnetition. The bids were rejected, and the purchase held in abeyance until the committee could agree upon a report and recommend different procedure. Â· I 122 Â·So. Fed.

Earl N. Shultz, extension dairyman at Iowa State college, told how mportant the knowledge is of mowing "how much butterfat a ull would have produced had he een a cow." Such knowledge is im- lortant, Shultz said, because it en- bles computation of the "sire in- iex." the best single measure of a :erd sire's breeding value known to dairymen. "Breeders figure that the produc- ion of the daughters will be about lalfway between the production of heir dams and the producing abil- ty they inherit from the sire," he said. "After the average production Â·ecords of the sire's daughters are obtained, the day's production is substracted from that of the daugh- .er's. This figure is then added to .hat of the daughter's to give the sire index. If the production of the daughters happens to be lower than the dam's, the difference is subtracted from the daughters' produc- :ion." Illustrates With Cases. Shultz illustrated his point with the following case: The dams average 400 pounds of butterfat, and their daughters average 500 pounds a year. The difference of 100 pounds added to the daughters' average production gives 600 pounds, or the sire index. Had the daughters produced less than the dams, for example 300 pounds, the difference of 100 would have been subtracted from the daughter's production. This would give the herd sire an index of only 200 pounds, indicating he is not a good breeder. "Finding a bull that can increase the production of the heifers from high producing cows," Shultz said, "is much harder than to find one that will make an increase over the average or low producing cow." He pointed out that the only certain method of improving a dairy herd is by using good breeding stock. "As production a cow increases, the feed cost a pound of butterfat drops because a poor cow eats practically as much as a good one. Lower feed costs mean more profit. Numbers of Iowa dairymen have actually made more money by sell- in" off'their poorer producing cows, keeping fewer but better cows and producing more butterfat a dollar of feeding cost." _ Controversy Reported in Talking Pictures of Mail Airplane Crash DBWITT, April 3.--A controversy developed over the taking of news photoraphs on the farm of William Mommsen, near here, of the wrecked ailmail plane in which Lieut. Thurman A. Wood lost his life Friday night. j Newspaper photographers w h o : tried Saturday to photograph the wreckage, were chased away and threatened by Sergeant Oden, said to be gound mechanic r-.t Ralph Cram airfield at Davenport, who vas sent here to guard the plane.; Oden told the cameramen that strict orders had been issued from Chicago that no pictures of the wreck were to be permitted. A Clinton newspaperman also charged that Oden tried to interfere with him when he interviewed 3. witness at the scene of the crash. It was reported here that army officials in Chicago denied issuing any picture censorship orders, but Coroner L. O. Riggert of Clinton told reporters that he had talked over the long distance telephone to Chicago Friday night with Captain Kelsey of the Chicago municipal airport, who, the coroner said, ordered the ban on the pictures. Newspapermen said that Oden, in guarding the wreck, was carrying a gun. He said that flashlight bulbs had been found in the field and an attempt was being made to discover who took pictures Friday night after the crash and to suppress j them.
