Taking -liis shotgun from the cupboard and examining the load, he returned to a point so that the muzzle of the gun was no more than a yard from the back of his wife's head and fired, he said. He was apparently unable to remember anything about the chest wound suffered by Mrs. Govig, but stated that Billie, his oldest son, procured a :pan of water and began to wipe the blood away from his mother's neck wound. , One physician who had treated the members of the Govig family foi several years, described the slayer's mental disorder as "depressive mania," Worried Continually. Despite outstanding success in his grocery at 516 Carolina avenue southeast, Govig was continually worrying over his business. Endeavoring to explain his troubles to County Attorney Mason, who frequently traded at the grocery on Carolina avenue, Govig told how he would worry every fime the county attorney paid his bill without making ' any ' pur-' chases, "fearing you were going to quit trading with us." (Govig's wife worked'with him in the operation of his stores.) ' -· Made 320,000."It was'ame way with eveiy account, we. had,". the shaken giocer:stated. - . - - ; . . ' . Reliable reports- -indicate that the Mason City store'netted the Govigs approximately $20,000, including 'stock inventories; during little more than six years of operation; . · The move to Clear Lake was made only a .few months ago in hopes of aiding Govig's nervous condition.. They formerly lived at 216 Fifteenth "street, southeast here. ' .. ' ' Mrs. Govig was born at Britt March 25, 1S08.

CONGRESS STILL FACES BIG ISSUE Has 2 Much Discussed New · Laws to Show for Its Week's WASHINGTON; yp)--congress had two much discussed new- laws to show Saturday for its week's work, but still faced a puzzling stalemate in the dispute over enlarging the supreme court if older justices do not retire. While the senate passed the reciprocal tariff act ill almost routine fashion and the house dawdled, on minor matters," "many members of both branches put in real .work preparatory to an historic struggle over judiciary 'reorganization. The speed and case with which President Roosevelt's- tariff bargaining powers were .renewed for three* years illustrated how the court issue had placed other legislation -in the background. Instead of the long consideration expected when the session started,' the:.administration won in the senate 58 to 24 after a minimum of argument. \ ' · ·; Passed by Senate. The bill to let supreme court justices retire with full pay at 70 was passed by the senate 'Friday in less than an hour. Some who made that 76 to 4 vote possible expressed the hope this measure would help .to settle the .larger court question, as It might if some justices" retire. . Visitors to congressional offices could see why so many legislators spent hours at their 'desks. Senator Vandenberg (R., -Mich.) for example, looked up from a slack of mail several inches high to say he liad received 700 letter^ that day. ! "And only , 25 supported the Roosevelt judiciary proposal," lie said. ' ' · - · . · . - ·· In Favor of President. ' Senator Minton (D., Ind;) told interviewers his .rush of mail hac turned-in favor of the presidenl after first being against. "I.checked up back home on the first batch," he said, "and found the writers were practically all republicans or' anti-Roosevelt democrats." . . So the comments ran'as the decision, in effect, was transferred back home." House leaders put off action pending a senate vote The senate judiciary committee will start hearings March 10. With almost a third of the senate openly counted on Roosevelt's side, a third publicly against and the remainder uncommitted, the contending forces were relying on pressure from the country on behalf of th'eir" views/ To Make Broadcast. The president decided to make a national broadcast .on March 9 iust before : leaving for Warrri Springs, Ga., to rest. Mr. Roosevelt nsisted the address would be a oii "the state of the union." Thereby, in the view of some close to him', he gave a clew to the strategy; · · These persons expect the administration to idcntty the court reorganization program with so- nal and economic, legislation. Some arguing on that side have contended that if wage and hour crop insurance and control and other social legislation is to be effected at this time, the Roosevelt court program offers the only sure method. . ' . Price Fixing Bill. Among developments of the week, the house ways and means committee approved a stringent price, fixing bill for 1 'the soft coal industry to replace the invalidated Guffey law.''." . Secretary Wallace supported the principle of national jurisdiction over agricultural problems--despite AAA invalidation--in testimony to another house committee. The president asked John G. Winant and other advisers to rep o r t ' t o him on: how to achieve minimum wages and maximum hours, an objective of the defunct NRA: · Introduction of the Wagner Steagall billion dollar housing bill was intended in f u l f i l l m e n t of another democratic p l a t f o r m plank..

IS LEGISLATURE HAVING RECESS? Senate and House. Continue to Hold Sessions With Few Present. . : DBS MOINES", (/P)--The Iowa legislature had a vacation Saturday which vyasn't a vacation at all --at least as far as the official journal will show. The senate, called to order by Senator D. W. Kimberly (R) of' Davenport, dean of Iowa" lawmakers, adhered strictly to the compendium of Parliamentary Law Gen. Henry M. Robert wrote for deliberative bodies back in 187ff, but the house had to wait a while. An unofficial roll call showed democrats outnumbered republicans in the upper chamber for the first time this session. Present when Kimberly banged.the gavel were E. I. Mason (D) of Brooklyn, James J. Gillespie ' (D) ol Des Moines, and George L. Parker. (R) of Independence. Goetsch Arrives Laic. . Senator Sam D. Goetsch (D) of Decorah came in, a little later'to break the party tie and give democrats the upper hand. Said Kimberly before the session opened: "We do things according to Hoyle here." He referred to the legislative Hoyle written by General Robert and xnown as Robert's rules of order. After opening prayer by Ray Sheehan of Dubuque, who operates a candy stand outside the senate-doorway, the senate went into executive session to receive Gov. Nelson G. Kraschel's appointments, to .the. unemployment compensation commission. T h e session lasted 10 minutes with doors ceremoniously closed and guarded. In Open Session. Senators then went into open session again, and adjourned at 8:10 a. m. until Monday afternoon when the · chamber will meet to approve or disapprove the appointments. · Speaker pro tern C. L. Rice (D) of Delta came to the lower chamber promptly at 8:30 a. m., the time set for the dummy house session, but only one other raerriber was p r e s e n t -- Representative Claude Johnson (D) of Rippey. "I'm a little short on membership," said Rice. He started waiting for others to show up. '· Failed (o Agree. The two chambers got into the vacation predicament when they failed to agree on a spring recess. Speaker LaMar Foster (D) of West Branch Thursday evening proclaimed a recess until next Wednesday noon. Rice comes over to the statehouse in the morning to declare the house in 'session and recess until the riext day. A few house leaders agreed on ihe plan because of the. constitutional provision which prohibits the branch of'the legislature' from adjourning for. more than three days without consent of the other Rige talked about it while' lie waited for more representatives to come: At 9 a. m: Rice and Johnson were still the only ones present. A little after nine, however, three representatives--William N Irwin (R) of Keokuk.'L. C. Bowers (R) of Kent, and E. J. Maniece (D) of Estherville, came into the chamber. S 0 Rice called the session to order and announced a recess until the fall of the gavel Monday, when the chamber will go through the motions again.

ORGANIZERS OF STRIKE JAILED Martin ..Defies, New Jersey -Governor's^Warning;to : Sit Downers. STRIKES AT A GLANCE (By..The Associated Press) WAUKEGAN, 111.--Two C. I.

S A N : T A M O N I C. A, Cal.--. Strike leaders forecast tight picket line to. prevent reopening of Douglas Aircraft corporation next week; Northrop Aircraft factory plans reopening Monday. ' By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A troublous week on the wide labor front ended Saturday with new tests of strength indicated. ; With an estimated 30,000 woi-k- :ers still idle because of controversies, many of which involved the sit down. President Homer Martin of the United Automobile workers of America took occasion to asserl this strike-weapon was "still effective." His remarks in New York apparently were motivated setbacks to sitdowners during the ·week Ht Waukegan, 111., and Santa ;Monica, Cal. : May Take Over Plant. : . Gov. Elmer A. Benson of Minnesota, championing the cause of striking utility workers in Minneapolis, announced through his secretary he was prepared to take over the strike bound Northern States Power company plants if he finds authority in law. The first outbreak to mar the peaceful mood of a score of Detroit labor disputes resulted in injuries to a woman and two men at the Ferro Stamping company when lead pellets were hurled in a row between u n i o n and nonunion forces. Three state governors have voiced opposition to the sit down technique. Gov. Henry Horner- of Illinois said there was "no warrant in law to justify a so-called sit down strike." Governors Wilbur Cross of Connecticut and Harold G. Hoffman of New Jersey warned 'they : cb'uld tolerate no sit down strikes in their states. . Answered by Martin. Governor Hoffman's announcement drew from Homer Martin, president of the United Automobile Workers of America, a rejoinder that sit down strikes would be conducted "whether he likes it or not," Martin said the governor would "move out of the way" if he doesn't "join with us." The committee for industrial organization pushed plans for unionizing the Ford Motor company assembly plant at Edgewater, employing 3,700 workers, and the federal ship building and dry dock at Kearney, employing 4,000. Sheriff's deputies arrested two C. I. O. organizers in Waukegan, 111., they were charged with conspiring to prevent execution of a court writ for the arrest of sit- down strikers in the Fan-Steel Metallurgical corporation plants. Five other organizers were being sought by deputies. Sixty-one sit downers were evicted Friday in a tear gas attack. They mapped plans for a picket siege. Strikers Are Freed. Sit down strikers arrested after holding the Douglas Aircraft corporation plant at Santa Monica, Cal., were released Friday night on their own recognizance, pending hearings next week.- Union organizers planned to picket' the plant in an effort to prevent its reopening. Officials of the Northrop Aircraft factory, a Douglas subsidiary, said the plant would resuVne operations Monday. It was closed wherr2GO of 1,150 employes went on a sit down strike Thursday. The U. A. W. A., an affiliate of the C. I. O., i-ecessed negotiations with General Motors conferees at Detroit until Monday after reaching tentative agreements on all points except hours and wages. Next week the union will open negotiations with the Chrysler Automobile corporation. Seek Dispute End. U. A. W. A. representatives and company officials sought to end a' dispute which caused closing of the Fisher body and Chevrolet ai- sembly plants at Jancsville, Wis. The factories, employing 2,700 men, rinsed after friction developed between union and nonunion factions. · Gov. Elmer Benson of Minnesota went to Washington to enlist the. aid of federal conciliators in the strike of electrical workers at the Northern States Power company. Hundreds of homes suffered interruptions in electrical service during the past three days; Meanwhile, a number of small strikes were settled. They included the month old dispute at the Star- Peerless Wallpaper company, ,Tol- iet, 111., a half dozen at Detroit, and one at the Principal Shoe company, Brooklyn, N. Y. Badly Burned in Fire.

T. safety foundation for he best editorial on safety appearing in the newspapers of the United States in 1936. The award to the Mason Cityan was part of S2.00D in cash made ivnilciblc by the foundation for Jistinfjuished services performed by newspaper men. Howard F. Wentworth, reporter, Washington, 3. C., Post received $500 for, the best scries of safety stories.

Gels Personal Letter. Mi 1 . Hall received a personal letter from John W. Darr, one of the trustees of the foundation, advising him of the editorial writ- =r's award of §500. "A check for this award will be mailsd to you in the course of the next few days," said Mr. Darr. Mr Hall was invited to attend a dinner to be given Wednesday evening at 7:30 o'clock in the Le Perroquet suite at the Waldorf Asturia, New York, at which time the winner of the grand award of SS.OOf) for 193G will be announced. This grand award will go to that person in any line of endeavor deemec" to have contributed the most to the cause of traffic safety during the year 1936. Acceptance of the grand award will be carried over (he Blue Network of the atiiH'al Broadcasting company. His Face Was a Bit Red. "Delighted beyond measure, of course," said Mr. Hall in commenting on the award which came iiis way. "And utterly surprised. I had no inkling of it until--and this to my very great embarrassment--I saw the announcement n the DCS Moines Register." Ordinarily such a scoop by the morning press would perturb Mr. Hall for the whole day but he- seemed willing to overlook it in this case. In another respect, the development has placed the local man on the spot. "I had planned," he said, "to taper off a little on my activity in safety on the theory that perhaps I had continued my fair share to the cause. But now I mustn't do this out of a fear that it will be suspected that I was only looking for 'pay dirt.' " Mr. Hall was undecided-Saturday ^whether he would" maice'the trip to New York for the meeting Wednesday night at which the awards will be formally made. Sponsored by Corporation. The C. I. T. Safety Foundation is sponsored by C. I. T. corporation, leading national sales finance company, and the newspapermen's awards are part of a number of annual safety awards totaling $10,000 .which were set up by the foundation upon its establishment in May, 1936. At the request of the C. I. T. Safety Foundation, Arthur Robb editor of Editor and Publisher; Frank Parker Stockbridge, publicist and former editor of American Press: and Dr. Milter McClintock, director of Harvard bureau for Street Traffic Research, served RS the committee of judges for the 1936 newspapermen's awards. This committee made the following statement to the C. I. T. Safety Foundation after a long and thorough study ol all the 'material submitted for consideration in the newspapermen's competition: Tribute to Press. "At the same time as this committee announces those whom it believes most deserving of the recognition afforded by the newspapermen's awards of the C. I. T. Safety Foundation, it also wishes to uay t r i b u t e In the entire press of the United Slates. Newspapers and those of their staffs entrusted willi the presentation . of news have exerted considerable influence in behalf of increasing the safety of our streets and highways. Perhaps no single avenue of communication can do more to enhance the popularity of safe driving in every part of the country than the press as a whole." The C. I. T. safety foundation announced its gratification of the widespread interest in the initial newspapermen's award contest and concurs with the committee of Judges in the belief that the press of the country is to be highly commended for the educational campaign which it has conducted in behalf of popularizing safe and sane driving. The foundation expresses .the hope t h a t the very great influence of the press will be exerted even stronger in this direction, d u r i n g the coming years.
