PENSION LAW IS WELL RECEIVED Porterfield Believes State As Whole Ready to Co-Operate. DES MOINES, April 6. (J)--John F. Porterfield, member ol the state old age assistance commission, said today that the law was being well received throughout the state. "I doubt if any Iowa law haamet with the willing co-operation that has been given in this case," he said, adding that "we have had no objectors and many persons have given us their voluntary aid." Porterfield said that the listing of the persons against whom the head tax, for support of the assistance fund, is applicable is well under way. In a number of precincts it is complete. The first head tax of $1, payable by all persons over 21 years of age, is due on or before July 1. After that the tax will be 52, annually. The first pensions are to be granted Nov. 1. The commission is sending letters to employers notifying them that where the employe does not pay the head tax, the employer is responsible for it through deduction from salaries. "HOW!" STATE TWO WHITE BEARS AFTER PALO ALTO ARREST ; 'EMMETSBURG, April 6.-Trapping and hunting are heap big- sports, Martin White Bear, 33, and Paul White Bear, 19, Indians of near Red Wing, Minn., agreed here Friday as long as they do the trapping and hunting. But when Sheriff Bert Montgomery of Palo Alto county went hunting for the Messrs. White Bear, and trappec them near Emmetsburg--"Ugh,' grunted the White Bears, or, as is said in Iowa, "nuts!" It all started over a little matter of a vacation for the Indian trappers, who decided to visit relatives at a Winnebago, Nebr., reservation Wednesday some alarmed citizens of Cylinder, east of here, notified Sher iff Montgomery that an Indian up rising was on the way, about to de scend on the Emmetsburg settle ment, not with ponies and arrows but with a Chevrolet and firewater And, of course, war whoops. So, as they traveled toward thi setting sun, officers ambushed them and led them, captive, to the whit man'a fortress here, where the; await charges. And as for the term --Vanishing American--it's hard t vanish from an iron barred stock ade, although it has been done. "How?" was the braves' sole com ment.

In Its release covering February employment and sayrools the department reveals a 6 per lent gain in actual employment and an Increase of 12 per cent in manufacturing payrolls. The commerce department said that only Incomplete figures were available for last month, but these promised further Improvement over February. FURTHER GAINS EXPECTED Inasmuch as toe shortened work week and higher wages advocated by the NRA and widely adopted by major Industries were not in force until April 1 further gains wil be shown for the current month, It is asserted. Therefore, preliminary analyses are lead ing students of the business trend to the conclusion that the spring was pierced with workers In the best situation witnessed since 1931. The commerce department's report for February showed that practically all the principal manufacturing lines expert enced higher activity but that the automobili industry -was in the fore.
