Tenney at the Friendlj tavern Christmas Eve. The jury before it filed out o£ the courtroom heard instructions by Judge T. A. Beardmore permitting the finding of any one of 5 verdicts: 1. Guilty of manslaughter. 2. Guilty of assault with intent io commit manslaughter. 3. Guilty of assault with intent to commit great bodily injury. 4. Guilty of assault and battery, 5. Not guilty. A verdict of guilty would carry with it a sentence ranging from a maximum of 8 years in the penitentiary plus a fine of not more than $1,000 on the manslaughter verdiqt to 30 days in jail or a $100 fine on the assault and battery count, according to Iowa law. Joe Frank, 24, is under joint indictment .with his brother on the manslaughter charge and is scheduled for separate trial later The 2 brothers had been working as waiters at the tavern on the night of the fight. James C. Tenney "sowed to the wind and reaped the whirlwind' on Christmas Eve when he was killed in a fight with John Frank declared L. K. Boomhower, attorney for Frank. Tenney was the aggressor in the fight insisted,the The Name Was Hoots One of the witnesses to" the fight between John Frank and James C. Tenney which resulted in the tatter's death was Henry Hoots. His name has been mentioned a number of time in the report of the trial. In the last report given by this newspaper, the name was erroneously spelled "Houts." defense attorney in his closing argument to Ihe jury Tuesday afternoon. Tenney was away from \ lome and. family on Christmas s-ve, the attorney pointed out, and was intoxicated according to the evidence in the trial. Frank should never, have been indicted Tor manslaughter, declared his attorney^ because he was only defending himself as anyone else would have done under similar circumstances. You can't refute the evidence of John Frank's torn. shirt," ar- ;ued the attorney. Defense witnesses declared that Tenney had lold .of Frank's shirt with one land, during the fight and Mr 3oomhower argued that his client was only trying to get away from Tenney and striking him to loosen his hold on the shirt. Testimony by state's witnesses was attacked by air. Boomhower who asserted that most of them vere so drunk at the time they lid not know what happened. 'The state's witnesses could see everything." he said ironically; 'they could see both over and hrough everything." He called attention to the height of the tooths and the crowd around the ight which obstructed the view. A person has a right to defend limself even to the point of tak- ng his attacker's life, the attorney told the jury. He also suggested that Tenney lost his bal- nce when he swung at Frank nd lost his hold on the shirt, ailing to the floor and himself T A R P A U L I N S Carried in Stock or Made to Order 8 x 10. $ 6.80 10 x 12 10.20 | 2 * 16 16.32 16 x 20 27.20 Mason City Tent, Awning and Canvas Co.

Tenney never moved from his tooth, insisted Mr. Mason, pound* ing his declaration that Frank ·as the aggressor in the fight and had no right to a claim of self defense. "Johnny came down and insisted that if Tenney was goinn to fight it would be with him," continued the county attorney, 'even though Tenney said his argument was with Elmer Fredericks." Mr. Mason also clashed with Jie defense attorney's contention that the Friendly, tavern "inherited the trouble from other booze ipints in town." Henry Hoots tes- ified that he heriff to tell tried to call the him of the fight and'was interrupted by Dale Hill, lusband of the proprietor, -who ordered Hoots thrown out of the tavern. "Dale Hill was on this witness stand and didn't deny throwing Hoots out because he called the sheriff," countered Mr. Mason. The only question involved in Ihe trial, contended M. C. Cough- on, assistant county attorney, in lis argument Is (hat of self defense. And the only testimony which could bear out that finding .vas that of John Frank himself continued Mr. Coughlon. "Not a single'disinterested witness saw Tenney strike a blow or holding Johnny by the collar " he added. He held up the torn shirt and asked the jury to consider whether it looked as if Ten- icy could have used it in pulling Trank back and forth across the able as the defense contended.

Henry Kislia was in the thick ot the bombings that softened up the Marshall islands before the invasion, it was learned here Wednesday. His squadron is officially credited with bringing down 16 zeros. In a letter received by Mrs. Kislia, his wife, it was revealed that on the return to the home base after a bombing mission, his flight was hopped by a number of zeros. They staged a running battle of 1 hour and 20 minutes. In the first 5 minutes of that battle his top gun turret was shot off. But the worst happened when the ship just ahead of him, on which, there were 3 of his best friends, exploded in mid air. Apparently it sustained a direct hit on the gas tanks or some other combustible part. Lt. Kislia was Hying Sadie K, named after his wife.

BOY SCOUTS TO OBSERVE WEEK OF FEB. 8 TO 14 Dr. Pauley, Winnebago Council President, Speaks on Anniversary "Scouting has continued to grow every year from its start back in 1910. Here in our own Winnebago council we ended the year with more than 1,700 boys registered in our troops and packs, an all time high in the history of the council," said Dr. J. L. Pauley, president of the Winnebago council, Boy Scouts of America, on the KGLO Forum Tuesday evening. Feb. 8 through 14 has been designated as Boy Scout Week in celebration of scoutings 34th anniversary. Scouts throughout the country are engaging in special activities commemorating the birthday. It was pointed out that war conditions have made a tremendous change in the leadership of Boy Scout troops. Dr. Pauley said the turnover in Boy Scout leadership, since war's inception, has been terrific. In some districts it has been as high as 50 per cent in a year. The speaker said he believed that the reason all of these vacated positions have been satisfactorily filled is because these men realize the importance of Scout training for boys. "They realize," he said; "that when they step in to fill a vacancy caused by one who has left for the service, that they are possibly doing the very best they can in serving their country here at home." The Winnebago council president said, further, that necessity lias been the mother of another trend in the Scout program. That is the added responsibility of leadership which is being placed on the older Scout, or the Senior Scout. "These older boys are conducting troop meetings. They are spending a great deal of their FIBST KOBIN--Mild as this winter has been, the news of the arrival of the first robin brugs with it the same refreshing cheer as always, the promise that spring is not far off. That news came to Mason City Wednesday morning at 9:40 o'clock when Mrs. B. I.' Bright saw and heard a robin in the backyard of her home in the Marvyl apartments, Sth N. W. time throughout the week helping the individual Scouts in practice of the various scouting skills. This, we think, is a very healthy condition, one which is very probably giving these young men the very best training they could have previous to their going into the armed forces of their country," l)r. Pauley said. ' The speaker said that while some of the activities ol his organization have been changed by existing conditions, the activities as far as each troop is concerned, have increased. "This week," he concluded, "scouts start out in every community to carry out a house to house 'gleaners after reapers' project in connection with the 4th war loan drive. We are continuing our messenger service for the office of war information arid arc regularly distributing posters for this organization. Mr. Pauley r e a d President Roosevelt's birthday letter to all Boy Scouts.
