DEMOS IN PALO ALTO IN ACCORD Steil Election as County Chairman Believed to Be Harmonious. EMMETSBURG-- John Slei'l, Emmetsburg city councilman and retired business man, was elected Palo Alto county democratic chairman Saturday to succeed O. V. Ciitz who resigned. The election of Stell, regarded as a conservative in politics and long associated with community activities, is seen as a move to unite the two democratic factions in the county. The county party split at a democratic convention here last June when William McNamara's name was barred as a candidate for democratic chairman to oppose Chairman Crifz. Upon Critz' ruling that McNamara was ineligible for the job, members of the McNamara delegation stalked from the meeting. Disorder reached its height a few moments later when Mrs Irma Buttemore of West Bend, chairwomen, who had left with the protesting delegation, returned arX attempted to obtain the records of the meeting. Presiding officials sought to prevent her from taking them and in the ensuing scuffle, Mrs. Buttemore's glasses were knocked from her face, her dress torn and she departed from the scene in tears. At Saturday's meeting when Stiel was elected, representatives ot both factions were present for the first harmonious parley since last year. Mrs. Catherine O'Brien of Ayrshire served as vice-chairman at Ihe session. Former Chairman Critz resigned from the county democratic leadership following his purchase of a 250 acre farm near Fort Dodge sevci'Hl weeks ago. He will move there wild his family soon. ft EBRARY SALE CONTINUES One More Chance -- Beat the Rising Prices --Buy Now--Pay Later ONE MORE WEEK 2 PIECES IN MOHAIR [New' attractive designs in all over mohair.
