TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 24 · 1987 levies in Davenport, both of which under'the charter plan, are collected separately. " '· Iowa Senate Adjourns. While the house took up the homestead bill the senate 'adjourned for the day out of respec for Senator T. F. Driscoll (D) o .Favmington, who died here Tuesday night. Before the lower 'ch'ambei started work on the homesleat measure.it debated, a proposal to eliminate the 35 per cent require- ment.lor nomination at a primary election. By the time set for consideration of the homestead bill the house had defeated an amendment which would place in the primary, law a provision that defeated primary candidates couk not run for the same office as independents. ' The house late Tuesday passed 91 to 9 the unemployment'insur- ance setup revision bill and re- turned'it to. the senate for action oh amendments. The bill provides for a full time three man commission instead of a part time five man board. . . Indulge In Parly Fight. House democrats and republicans indulged in a bitter, recriminating party fight that slarled in the morning session and carried over' into the afternoon as they discussed the amendments to the bill, voting to reduce commissioners' salaries to $3,000 annually instead of 54,500 as provided by the senate. ' · ' , ' . . . : The outspoken exchange brough' ejection of house spectators ahc lobbyists. ; . ; ! · ' . Representalive-H. .G. Moore (D) of Dunlap precipitated one outburst of party warfare by charging ' that "a certain party in this house is trying, to mess un this legislation." Moore claimfed that all the amendments to the proposal to establish a three member unemployment compensation .board, instead of a five member board came from republicans. . , " Tired, of Horseplay. · "A lot' of the members of this house;" Moore declared,-"are getting tired of; this horseplay. If i keeps up, the plan to establish a three member full time board, instead of'a five member part time board is going to be defeated. "The responsibility is. not going to rest on the democrats." A half dozen republican representatives leaped up,, although Moore did not name' any specific party. "I personally resent those remarks," -shouted Representative Dewey Goode (R) of Bloomfield. "I'm .-ashamed any member of this house would claim this is a party bill." , - . . " · : . :"If Moore wants to blame the republican party for trying to save the taxpayers' money," Representative B. B. Hickenlooper ,(R) of Cedar Rapids, said, "by restricting the salaries this board-can" pay, then we're\ willing to take the blame, We're just trying to,keep thjsjboard irom' squandering the taxpayers' money." ^ Commits Suicide by .

"Long enough," he drawled, "to reach front his body to the ground." .That seems like a good rule to apply to a, business. It ought to be jbig enough to do the.job it is intended''lo do.'

VICTORY SEEN IK SHOE STRIKE Pickets Replace Sit Down Strikers at Electric Boat Firm. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Pickets awaited calls to shoe plants in the great Massachusetls manufacturing center Wednesday as labor rows brought numerous new walkouts or "sitdowns" in communities from coast to coast. Quick agreement, however, to demands oE the United Shoe and Leather Workers Union for a 15 pei- cent wage increase by more than a score of the New England shoe manufacturers moved Organizer William B.'Mahan to assert: · "I think we have already won this strike." A.24 hour picket detail replaced sit downers at the Electric Boat company, Groton, Conn., from which strikers were ejected by state troopers Tuesday. Like the Douglas Aircraft company at .Santa Monica, Cal., whose plant continued to be occupied .by sit downers, the boat firm has big government contracts. Watch Plant Closed. In other sectors a strike closed a watch case plant at Elgin, III., dissension in union ranks of the recently striking glass workers flared; United mine worker wage negotiations we're submitted to a sub-committee of' operators and diggers, and the motor industry had a new union request to consider. . ' · Still engaged in discussions to wind up its recent dispute with General Motors, the United Automobile workers sent Walter F, Chrysler, president of the auto firm bearing his name, a request for a "national conference" looking toward a collective bargaining agreement. "In reply the motor manfacturer suggested the.union communicate with Detroit executives of hi company. Several settlements were announced in Detroit disputes but a dozen factories there continued closed by labor differences. Douglas Plant Occupied. More than 300 sitdown strikers occupied the Douglas Aircraft company plant at Santa Monica where, company officials said, contracts for government airplanes involved 519,000,000 of a $24,000,000 construction program. Seniority rights, wage increases and recognition of the United Automobile Workers of America union were demands set forth in circulars passed to 5,600 employts. Sitdowners ignored a request by the firm's president to leave the plant "to avoid trouble." An agreement for a wage increase ended a short lived strike of 400 employes of the Detrola Radio -and Television- corporation at Detroit A wage adjustment also ended the 'Star Terminal Transfer company's strike, involv- ng 30 workers in the same city. Three other strikes were settled but a half'dozen continued. OFFICERS OF 2 STATES IN HUNT G-IVIen Examine Gun Used in Slaying of Redwood, Union. Leader. HACKENSACK,' N. J., (/P)--G- men joined detectives of two states Wednesday in efforts to solve the murder of R. Norman Redwood, "sandhpg' 1 union leader, as one local investigator said new developments caused suspicion the killers were "hired out of the west." "I would not be surprised if the killers were hired out of the west," said Peter J. Siccardi, Bergen county police chief, as the murder gun trail led to St. Louis. A gun which County Prosecutor John J. Breslin said was one of at least two used in the murder was sent to the federal bureau of investigation in an attempt to raise two filed off digits in the serial number. The middle two of the six digits were not legible. Only 12 guns, Siccardi said could'have fitted into the number combination and 11 had tentatively been determined to be "in good hands." The twelfth he said, was traced to a St. Louis hardware dealer who sold it in 1931. He sent St. Louis police a request to question Ihe dealer. Girl Who Wanted to Die Changes Mind; .

The prosecution charges Nodder met the girl in Newark and took her by bus to Rettord, 23 miles away, and kept her at his home that night.

Dr. Conant advanced his ideas on "The Selective Principle in Education in a Democracy." "In allowing our selective machinery to grow rusty," lie said, "we are failing an equally important task---that of providing the leaders of the future. "What is this machinery by which the colleges play their part in selecting and Iraining Ihe most able young men and women? Clearly il is our old heritage of stiff courses, a stimulating atmosphere, making for hard work, examinations, rank lisls, 'honor standings'." Favors Scholarships. "I do not believe in the older American theory that it is necessarily good for a student to work his way -through college," the president continued. "I do not believe that it should be a function of our educational system to provide handicaps which are unfairly adjusted so that they uffecl certain students and no others." He said he believed a carefully administered scholarship system is an essential part of a truly democratic selective system of educa- Uon. To insure a stable civilization, education must adapt the traditions of the past lo the needs of Iho present, Dr. Coffman ,lold the conference. President Coffman, in a speech prepared for delivery, said, "Persecution, ignorance, bigotry and intolerance are the weapons of barbarians;--we can drive them into permanent retreat only if we dedicate ourselves to the task of keeping the lamps of learning aflame and undimmed."
