THURSDAY, MAHCH 9, 1933 STOCKHOLDER PUT ON STAND Questioned by Ontjes Concerning Voting of Proxies by Officers Presentation of the claimants' case against the estate of C. H. McNider continued in district court here Thursday with F. A. Ontjes, claimants' counsel, calling Selby Russell, Nora Springs, to the witness stand. Mr. Russell testified that he attended the December, 1928, meeting o£ the stockholders of the Northwestern States Portland Cement company at which W. H. L. McCourtie was elected president to succeed Mr. McNider who had died during the year. Later Sent Proxies The witness had acquired his stock during the summer of 1928, he recalled, and attended only the first stockholders' meeting thereafter. In subsequent years he sent proxies to be voted by company officers, he testified. Mr. Ontjes questioned him at length to determine whether or not he would have sent the proxies it he had known that they would be used to ratify acts by the company's officers which were against' the best interests' of the other stockholders. "I did not expect the proxies to ,be used for any other purpose than stated in the notice which accompanied them," the witness answered. He later amplified this, however, by offering the opinion that x the proxies were broad enough^ to cover any business which *might be brought before the meetings.. Is Not a Plaintiff On cross examination by John Senneff, defense counsel, Mr. Russell said that he was not a plaintiff in the present suit and had never given a proxy to Mr. Ontjes although he had been requested to do~so. Peter Anderson, secretary of the cement company, resumed the stand after Mr. Russell's testimony had been completed, continuing with his identification of company records with which he has been occupied on the stand intermittently for more than a month.

A. W. Caul once pastor of the First Baptisl church of Mason City, committed W. V. Shipley to a grave in the cemetery here Wednesday afternoon. Burial followed impressive services at the Wilbur funeral horn'', directed by Mr. Caul and' participated in by the Rev.

House Votes 57 to 43 for Plan to Stimulate Demand for Iowa Dairy Products Bill Now Returns to Senate for Concurrence in One Amendment - DBS MOINES, (£)--Proponents of the dairy prcjmotion bill had to thread their way through a "processing tax" snarl Thursday to obtain house approval for a plan to stimulate the demand for Iowa butter, milk and cheese. The final vote was 57 to 43, one of the closest calls of the legisla- Knudson Makes Quip on "Colorful" Ads DES MOINES, (IP)--Representative G. T. Kuester (R), Griswoia, Thursday crilicized the "colorful" advertising approach to the problem of disposing of Iow-3'dairy supplies. "That color advertising will prove quite an.antidote, I think, to the color used by some lowans in their oleomargarine," was the rejoinder of Representative Herman Knudson (R), Mason City. tive session thus far. Fifty-five votes are needed for a constitutional majority. The bill now. must return to the senate for concurrence in an amendment limiting the promotion plan to this year and next, Would Finance Promotion The measure seeks to levy one cent a pound paid by the producing farmer on all Iowa butterfat shipped from Iowa creameries between May 1 and May 15 this year and next. The resultant fund, estimated at $120,000 annually, would be used in promotion campaign designed to ease the surpluses piled up in the billion dollar Iowa dairy industry. Rep. David A. Dancer (R), Lamoni, estimated that the average cost per farmer would be about 60 cents a year. Opponents of the bill charged it was a "processing tax levied on the poor helpless farmer." Thev tried to amend it by specifying the tax should be paid by the creamery rather than the producer, but the house turned thumbs down on that idea, 59 to 37. They declared the proposal did not have the support of the dairy producer but was only a "scheme supported by ice cream companies and the like to stimulate demand for their products." Assailed by Goode "If these companies and associations want ?125,000 to spend for advertising, let them collect it among themselves," asserted Representative Dewey Goode (R), Bloomfieldi He also charged that the measure would set up "another commission when we campaigned for a reduction and consolidation, of commissions." The tax would be collected and spent under the direction of a dairy commission composed of Secretary of Agriculture Mark G. Thornburg, a representative of the dairy industry division of Iowa State college and nine dairymen, selected on a congressional district basis. "Need to Advertise" Dancer and other supporters of the bill insisted the measure has GUARANTEED TREATMENT FOR TENDER STOMACH Adla Tablets bring quick relief from an acid stomach, pains between meals, indigestion s and heartburn due to excess acidity. If not your money is refunded. Huxtable Drug Co. the support of the majority of Iowa dairy farmers. The house dairy farmer contingent, including Representatives F r a n c i s Schwendemann (R), Duncombe and I. J. Burk (R), Rippey, corroborated Dancer although Representative J. B. Hermsen (D), Carroll, also a dairy farmer, lined up .with the measure's opponents. Representative J. E. Irwin (D), Eoone, suggested that "all good businessmen advertise and we ought to let the dairy interests do so if they want to." V. S.. Consumption Law Dancer pointed out that American consumption of butter averaged 16.7 pounds per capita in 1937, compared with 18.3 in 1932. In Canada^ he continued, the average is 27 pounds, and in New Zealand the figure is 32 pounds. The Feb. 1 butter carryover was 111 million pounds, he continued, compared with a normal figure of 31 million pounds at that time of the year. Dancer also said the idea is similar to promotion campaigns used by Florida, Idaho, Washington, Wisconsin and Minnesota to improve the market for agricultural products. Representative A. H. Avery (R), Spencer, opposed the bill because "this method of correcting the situation is dead wrong." "Lean pocketbooks are the reasons why dairy consumption is low," he asserted.
