Drummond, traffic commis sioner of the Chamber of Commerce, was probably the last Mason Cityan to see ex-Gov. John Hammill alive. The Mason City traffic expert bad worked with.' Mr. Hammill and other North Towans throughout the day Monday, opposing the dismemberment of the M. and St. L. railroad at an Interstate Commerce commission hearing in Minneapolis. He saw the ex-governor only a few minutes before the latter went to his room, where he was dead shortly afterwards apoplexy. The former governor had many friends in Mason City. Some of these expressed themselves as follows on learning of his death: B. C. Way--"John Hammill was a self-made man in every sense of the word. I have known him since he was fourteen years of age. His early and college education was brought about through his own efforts. His eighteen years in public iife in his own state has seldom been equalled. His slogan in public life was 'Pay as you go.' The same strict adherence to economy followed through his private life. The state has lost a good citizen; his community a lovable character." 3. C. Robinson, candidate for the republican nomination for state senator--"Mr. Hammill was a gooc public officer and his record shows he was an able governor.

(Lock Photo, Kayenay Engraving) -- ' · " i --- | yp STATES CROSS IS TRUE FAITH TEST Kratz Maintains Too Many Regard Faith as Means to Escape Crosses. "The Cross is the true test o: faith," said D. L. Kratz. pastor o; the Church of Christ, at the Passion week services held Monday evening at that church. "In the death of His son, God signed the covenant of peace between himself and sinful men. Each man also must enter into that covenant. The 'irst essential is faith in God and Us plan of redemption. All Chris ion belief must be measured bj the Cross of Christ. "Too many look at faith as a fay to escape the crosses of life. The enemies of Jesus told him if he ame down from the cross, they vould believe. But the faith that esus lived was not demonstrated n his ability to-avoid the troubles f life, but in the divine power of God's love that worked in him and ransformed the crosses into in- truments for the blessing of man and his own glory. "True Christian faith leads us to rust God with the real values of fe and to heroically take up the ross in following Jesus. So faith- ul Christians are cross bearers, eady to take the burden of'love nd its costs trusting that such acrifice assures God's victory." Another sermon in this series of The Cross in Christian Experi- nce" was to be delivered Tuesday :ght on. "The Place of the Cross Repentance." Wednesday eve- ng a baptismal service will be eld. No offering i s taken at these 'rvices and they are open to the eneral public. national convention as a at large." delegate Ray Clough--"John Hammill was one of the best governors Iowa ever had. It is unfortunate we have to lose his influence in the party at this time. He was a sane, sensible and forward looking man." Willis G. C. Bagley, president of the Chamber of Commerce--"He was an outstanding man in the re. publican party of this state and his death is a serious loss." W. A. Wcstfall, chairman, Cerro iordo county republican commitee -"The death of Mr. Hammill neans the loss of a great personal 'fiend and an efficient public servant. His untimely death cut short an opportunity for further service ':o his party and the public." W. P. Butler--"In the death of rohn Hammill the state of Iowa ias lost a faithful and sincere pubic servant. Some men may not iave agreed with Mr. Hammill's political views, but no one ever ightfully questioned his personal r political integrity."

DES MOINES, (UP)--New poll cies will be presented for approval to a meeting of the Iowa Taxpay ers' association, here next Saturday Joe L. Long, executive secretary of the association, said that prelim inary efforts of the group have beei solely to emphasize importance anc need of local taxpayers' organiza tions. While these activities will con tinue, a s:£art will be made toward realizing the definite objective o the association's program, Long said. It is not the intention of the association to advocate new tax revenue measures, either supplementa to existing statutes or as substitutes, Long said. However, "remedial" legislation, curbing public expenditures through revision of the state budget control laws, will be proposed, he explained. Previously, the association proposed an "adequate" method of appeal from local budgeting decisions and tax levies. It is contended that budget control acts have been so drastically amended in recent years as to seriously affect operation of the acts.

HAMMILL SET TO ENTER RACE AT TIME OF DEATH Statement Announcing His Candidacy for Senate Prepared. BR.ITT--In the personal letter file of John Hammill is a note bearing the signature of W. S. Kenyon and a 1932 dateline. It was one of the former governor's most treasured possessions. In it Mr. Hammill, then a state senator, Kenyon was authorized by Mr. "to release my friends whenever vou feel that my cause is lost.' 1 The letter was written by the Order to Stop Price Favoritism Appealed by Goodyear Company CINCINNATI. LPj--The Goodyear Tire and Rubber company, asked the U. S. circuit court of appeals Tuesday to reviexv an order of the federal trade commission directing the company to desist in a practice of granting special price considerations to Sears Roebuck company. .The commission, March 3, ordered Goodyear to halt the practice of granting rebates and discounts not allowed to other customers to Sears Roebuck on tires and tubes. The order came more than two after Trial Examiner John W. Bennett opened hearings in the case at Akron on Jan. 15, 1934. Tho tearing!) continued a.t intervals for approximately two years before the :ommission made its decision. Fort Dodge man near the conclusion of one of Iowa's most spirited political battles, after the legislature had remained deadlocked for long days and nights over the selection of a successor to IT. g. Senator J. P. Dolliver. Outlook Was Gloomy. "The prospect looked might dark." Mr. Hammill recalled in recent conversation with a rcporte "George E. Roberts of New York, former Fort Dodge neighbor of Sen ator Kenyon, and I worked ou hardest to keep the Keuyon sup porters in line. On the night hefor the break came for him, it looke as if the task couldn't be accom plished. It was at this juncture tha I received the note from Judge Ken yon. I always cherished his frienc ship." Despite reports that Mr. Hammi had decided not to be a candidat for United States senator, fello\ townsmen declared Tuesday that h not only planned to enter the rac hut that his statement of announce rncnt had been prepared. Had Latest Information'. "I talked to him about this Sat urday morning," said Frank W. Sen neff, a local lawyer, "and he told m he would make his announcemen some time this week. From thos who were with him at Minneapolis I learn that he was of the sam mind in his last conversations be fore the fatal stroke seized him." According to his friends here, h felt rather confident of nominatio but he expected a more difficul task in the election campaign. The principal objects of pride t Mr. Hammill as he looked back ove his political career were the low primary highway system, pave without so much as a suggestion o fraud during his last four years a the capitol, and the almost uniforn satisfaction given by his appointee to bench, board and commission. Neither Penalty Nor Reward. "It was a principle with me," h recently pointed out, "that my ap pointive power would not be usei primarily to punish my enemies o; reward my friends. The first con sideration with, me always was: Is he qualified for the job?" In considering a re-entry into the political arena, Mr. Hammill felt rather confident that he could win the republican nomination for senator. But, sensing a Roosevelt popularity in rural Iowa, he was not sure at all that he could win the election in November. He reasoned that his chances against Senator Louis Murphy two years from now unhandicapped by a national election, might be be'tler. Could Have Been Drafted Having experienced the honor which attaches to being governor, this field did not attract him except M an opportunity to perform further service. Those who have discussed the matter with him are convinced, however, that he could have been drafted as a republican candidate. Mr. Hammill's first sally l n the political arena was in 1902 when as a young lawyer, fresh out of the Iowa college of law, he was elected county attorney. He distinguished himself by a strict enforcement of laws. In fact, he was repeatedly warned that he was "killing himself politically." Later he claimed as much as ,80 per cent of the Hancock republican votes. Six years later, at the age of 32. he was in conference at Mason City with a Hancock county delegation, contending that Hancock should be given a turn on the senatorship. It wa s an abstract proposition when he left Britt but on his way over, others in the delegation, which included J. E. Wichman, later a senator himself, notified the young Hammill that he was Hancock county's choice for the sonatorship. Thus a,n abstract idea was made concrete for him. "I'll never forget that conference." Mr. Hammill recalled recent- Passion Week Services Held Each Evening at Grace Evangelica Passion week services are bein conducted each evening- this week a the Grace Evangelical church 7:30 o'clock.

While he disagreed with nuch of the philosophy underlying the new deal farm program, lie We credit to the party for an ag- ressive endeavor to do something about the agricultural problem. In his home community, John ·Tammill has from the start of his Britt residence assumed an active role in commercial club and school affairs. For the past several months, he has been aggressive in attempting to prevent a dismemberment of the M. St. L. railroad ystem, -which probably would leave Britt without railroad facilities north, and south. Always a Britt Booster. Only last Wednesday he appeared, vith Burt Thompson of Forest "3ty. before the state executive omniittee and the railway com- uission, arguing with vigorous orce that the state of Iowa "has real and an important stake in this M.

PUBLIC LIBRARY BOARD SEEKS TO PROTECT BOOKS Theft and Mutilation Cases to Be Punished When Discovered. Mrs. C. H. McNider was elected president of the board of trustees 01 the Mason City public library at the annual meeting held in the library Monday evening. Mrs. Carl Parker was elected vice president, iind D. H. Fitzpatrick was re-elected secretary. All the members of the board were present at the meeting. The board is made up of the three elected to office and Earl Smith and H. D, Page, the latter making his initial appearance, having been appointed Monday morning by the city council. The monthly and annual reports by Miss Lydia M. Barrette, librarian, were read. In view of the inventory shorts over a period of several years and of cases of mutilating- books during the past year, the. board decided on a policy of prosecuting offenders, when discovered, through the juvenile court, if they are young people and through regular court action if they are adults. Should Have More Interest. It was the sense of the board that parents should have a more alert interest in books brought into the homes and that the careless trading of library books and the heedless way in which books are sometimes treated should be checked in the homes, and that care of public property should be taught. The competitive spirit aroused by hobby shows, and the school notebooks, when the pressure of time drives children to taking pages for short cuts, which have been the cause of considerable mutilation of library books are a matter on which there should be more adult education, it was pointed out. A high school teacher, one of whose students was discovered to have clipped pictures from, books tWs year, has now made it a rule that nothing shall be put into her notebooks unless the source of the clipping, magazine or book, is first shown her in the original form from, which it is to be taken. Adapts New Folicy. If other teachers adopt this policy and parents will check up their book shelves at spring housecleaning. much grief can perhaps be avoided for individual students, the board members elated. Fortunately for the users of public libraries most people are honesc and have a proper regard fo r the rights of others, it was stated. The system of free access to the shelves and free use of the books breaks down unless there is a pride in tho common ownership of the 62,000 book treasures in the Mason City public library. For slapping a pupil so hard on -he ear that the drum was broken, Michael McKeown, a teacher in tho "chool in Ballina. Irish Free State, ins been ordered to pav the bov 805 damages.
