14 Thursday,-Feb. 3, 1944 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE CHARGES DENIED BY ECKHARDT Claims He Turned Down Offer by 4 Austin Clubs . Austin, Mimt., 6.R)--Sheriff Arnold Eckh'ardt, whose ouster,from office is sought on a petition of Mower county residents, denies all-charges that he solicited bribes to permit operation of slot machines at Austin. ' Eckhardt, testifying in his own defense at the hearing called by Gov. Edward J. Thye, said he had turned down an offer of $100 a month from each of the 4 Austin clubs lo allow the machines to be placed back in operation. Eckhardt told Wilfred Rumble, who conducted the hearing, that the offer was made by La Fayette French, American Legion com- mander,' and Jack -Scallon, Elks club secretary. · The sheriff also denied that he ever made the statement credited to him by 3 earlier witnesses that "all the sheriffs but 3 in Minnesota were getting a cut where slot machines were operating." Eckhardt said he told Mayo Priebe, Rochester, owner of the machines, that the gambling devices were down to stay. He added that Priebe told him it was a lie that he had sought a 10 per cent cut for Eckhardt to permit operation of the machines. "I told Priebe to go back arid tell the Legion club that they haven't got enough money to pay me to put the machines back," Eckhardt testified. ll ouse PaintedSurfaceCIeaner (FirU from wifff. woadwoik ..-·]] p«wtcd fMfdctl.

Majority for Sons Stay ing From Politics Denver--Although a slight majority of the American people are satisfied with the political officeholders in their own states, most persons with opinions agree that "it is almost impossible for a man to stay honest if he goes into politics,"-and they don't want any son of theirs to go into politics. Interviewing democrats, republicans, non-voters, civilian men and women, and persons at all economic levels.across the United States, the' National Opinion Research Center, University of Denver, first, asked: , "If you had a son just getting out of school, would you like to see him go into politics as a life work?" , Yes ..;.... 18% No ... I · 69% Qualified answer .. 1% Undecided "...!.'·.' 12% Although it is possible that some of the high degree of disregard for politics is due to the biasing effect of the word itself, which to many has come to be almost synonymous with "crookedness" and "graft," nevertheless it seems obvious that much of the feeling is directed against political office- holding itself. A widespread belief that politics is inherently dishonest is reflected in answers to this question: "It has been said that it is almost impossible for a man to stay honest, if he goes into politics. Do you agree or disagree?" -Agree 48% Disagree :...:' 42% Undecided 10% On the other hand, a majority are satisfied with the way most people who hold political offices in their state are doing their jobs. "Are you satisfied with the way -most people who hold political 'offices in this state are doing their jobs?" - i Yes 51% No 32% Undecided .! 17% Chief complaint of approximate- Minnesota Legislating I to Meet to Act on Service Vote Law St. Paul. Minn., IU.PJ--Gov. Edward J. Thye has announced that he will call a ' special session of the state legislature to enact a soldier's vote law, a rough draft of which already is being prepared. Thye told the state republican central committee that lie would call the special session around Feb. 28, strictly to vote on the soldier' bill. Reps. Fred · 1'. Memmer and Claude Allen, both of St. Paul,; are drafting the measure, he said, and provisions they make probably will' be submitted to the house interim committee on state government Friday. Problems to be settled by the soldier's vote bill include moving the state primary election from September to June and deciding just how far down the line into legislative and county offices bal lots should go. .

N. Larson, has been pro moted from ensign to lieutenant, junior grade. He is with the navy in the Pacific area. · Mrs.Clark; PRAYER ON BOUGAINVILLE--Marines kneel in prayer for their fallen comrades at memorial services in a Bougainville cemetery in the'south Pacific Solomon islands. ly one-half of those who would not like to see a son of theirs take up politics as a career is that politics is · dishonest. Answers are in terms of "too many temptations," it's all a racket," "it's corrupt," 'Christian principles -and politics don't mix" and "there are too many promises." Other reasons for disliking politics as a career include its alleged unpleasant nature-^'you make too many enemies," "cut-throat competition/' · "mud-slinging," "taxpayers dictate your life-," "too much responsibility"--and its uncertainty--"you must depend upon the public to keep your job," "you must worry about votes," "it's insecure" and "you lose your job if one party goes out." Those who would' like to see 'their sons in politics stress . the duty of service to one's community or country, the opportunities they say it offers for advancement, the monetary returns they see in it and the necessity for some reform of the profession by honest men.

Totals Up Iowa City--Iowa shares in the national -business' war boom as much as could reasonably be expected, when the overall picture is considered! according to Prof/ George R. Davies of the University o£ Iowa bureau ol business research. . Reporting? in the current issue of the Iowa Business Digest, he said that Iowa business showed a substantial increase for December,1943, as compared with December, 1942, and there were some smaller month-to-month gains on record. "Farm products* prices and farm income both have maintained relatively high levels during the year. Employment, D.%, and industrial payrolls, 20%, also are significantly increased in the year-to-year comparison," Professor Davies said. Some ot the gains in December over November marks were building contracts, 81%; department store sales, 29%; retail sales in unit stores, 24%; life insurance sales, 8%; employment, 3%; and farm products' prices and industrial i payrolls, each 1%. Nationally, 1943 recorded satisfactory increases in production as compared with 1942, Professor Davies said. The physical volume o£ factory output gained 20% with an employment increahe of 11%. "Total industrial ' production now is ZVt times what it was in 1939 and 4% times higher than the low depression year of 1932," Professor Davies said. He also pointed i out that the percentage of production devoted to war purposes now is about equal to the total production of consumer goods and services. Farm production! at record levels, in 1943 surpassed the banner year of 1942 and was a third higher than pre-war 1939. CAtlF.
