Dickinson lacks popularity in Iowa, whereas he stands high outside the state and particularly in the east, according to W. C. Dewel. In an editorial in the Algona Advance, Mr. Dewel attributes this lack of political popularity to the quick crystallization of mass psychology, resulting in large measure from quicker means of communication and spreading of news. "Formerly," according to Mr. Dewel, "the formation of mass psychologic opinion was slow and deliberate. There was time to weigh things and come to stable, well balanced opinions. Now the process is rapid and the chances for error and injustice have been multiplied many times. "Senator Patterson was most unjustly the victim of prejudiced and badly informed mass psychologic opinion last year and in consequence the voters have by their own act deprived themselves of the services of the ablest legislator this county and this senatorial district has ever had. "Senator Dickinson has been anc remains in pretty much the same case. This is not to say that he might not well have, been much more tactful in his political course in the last few years. Nevertheless his opinions have been shared by many competent 'observers, including nearly every democrat of national prominence not in public office. "No administration democrat cai be expected to approve of Mr Dickinson. Whether any appeal to so-called republicans who share democratic appraisal of him woulc do any good is questionable. Mass psychologic opinion is the hardes thing in the world to overcome Though it forms rapidly now, it is as slow as ever to change. There are indications of present change but not enough yet for a forecas' of political probalities in June and November." Real Estate Transfers. Rooks, Raymond and wife, to Susie B. Rooks, 51.

DOUBLE NEGATIVE IN COMPLAINT GETS BY IN SUPREME COURT DES MOINES, W)--The Iowa supreme court peeked behind a double negative Tuesday and decided intention was just as good as rhetoric. Twelve patrons of the Cameron township school district in Audubon county filed the following request for the discharge of Dorothy Schrader three weeks alter she took the position: "Miss Schrader is not giving satisfaction. She don't keep no government on the children while at school." Subsequently the board discharged her and Miss Schrader sued for all salary due under a year contract. The lower court ruled against her claim but the supreme court said she was entitled to pay for the three weeks. Among- Miss Schrader'a claims for the salary was that a complaint had never been filed against her. The supreme court, referring to the document signed by the 12 school patrons, said: "What was filed is not in formal shape and is poorly phrased but it did contain a complaint." Check Artist Gets $20; Orders Coal Sent to Vacant Lot A man signing his name as Harry Newman, 1128 First street northwest, cashed a check supposed to have been issued by a local businessman Tuesday morning at one of the local coal yards.

The man was about 36 years of age, weighed 150 pounds, was 5 feet 8 inches in height, was of dark complexion and wore dark clothes. The incident was reported to local police immediately and police have started to search for the man. MOTION FILED IN $60,000 ACTION Seek to Strike Most of Quevli Petition as "Immaterial." Frank P. Finn, Geneva, co-defendant with his sister, Miss Josephine C. Finn, Mason City, in a $60,000 damage suit instituted and filed by Nels Quevli, Lakefi.eld, Minn., attorney; in. connection with the death of his wife, Mrs. Anna Quevli, filed in district court here Tuesday a motion to strike 26 various paragraphs and portions of paragraphs in Quevli's petition. The motion, filed by the local firm of Fitzpatrick and Barlow, asked that the enumerated portions be stricken from the petition "for tie reason that all of the material contained therein are conclusions of the plaintiff and are not pleadings of ultimate facts but are surplus- age, redundant and immaterial to the issues of this case." It was further asked that the court require Quevli to make the balance of his petition more specific as to its various allegations. The Quevli petition, filed by the Minnesota attorney in his own behalf last March 25, contains IS paragraphs in a first count and 21 additional paragraphs in a second count. Special appearance for Miss Finn was also entered in the court records here Tuesday by Fitzpatrick and Barlow, asserting that the local district court does not have jurisdiction of Miss Finn as defendant. This contention was raised on the grounds that sufficient original notice has never been served on Miss Finn and that the purported original notice fails to comply with the Iowa statutes and does not name the county and court wherein the action was brought. Elaborate contentions tnat his wife's body was placed in the custody of an undertaker by the Finns and duly embalmed and buried, all while she was merely in a fainting spell or trance or condition of suspended animation, are set forth in Quevli's allegations. Mrs. Quevli's death, persistently referred to as "apparent death" in the petition, occurred two days after she was injuriously affected by smoke from a fire in Miss Finn's home at 224 West State street, where she was a roomer, on Feb. 28. 1934. She was buried on March 5. Damages are asked by Mr. Quevli on the grounds that the defendants failed to live up to an agreement to notify him at Lakefield, in the event of any mishap involving his wife. H e ' charges that he was not told of his wife's illness or-death until after her body had been delivered by the Finns "into the hands of a person known as an undertaker." Police reports just issued in Algeria show that difficult economic times there have caused a decline in ethical standards and the growth of fraud to record figures. I North Iowa Court Decisions Upheld Judge Joseph J. Clark's opinion was affirmed by the Iowa supreme court in tie case of James Oldham vs. Scofield and Welch, tried in the Floyd county court.

Kepler of Northwood sustaining a motion to dismiss an injunction proceeding against the First National bank o£ Mason City hi ought by Milton and [Floyd Giimm was also"upheld. CA6ERS HONORED BY SPEAKERS AT LOCAL BANQUET 2 From Ames Among Those Lauding High School, Junior College. Pride in the achievements of the Mason City high school and junior college basketball teams, both oj which had exceptionally successful seasons and were finalists in state tournaments, was expressed briefly by the dozen speakers at a banquet^ Monday night id Hotel Hanford,' sponsored by the junior division of , the Chamber of Commerce. \ } Andy Woolfries, announcer for ; Station WOI, acted as master of ceremonies and paid high tribute to the players he had watched and reported on through broadcasts in the state tournament, That Mr. Woolfries, whose home is at Ames, and Louis Menze, coach at Iowa State college and father of Bob Menze, one of the Ames high cag- ers, who won the state high school championship, were both on the program, was considered as a fine expression between Ames, the champion team, and the local runnersup. Mr. Woolfries referred to the outstanding records of the teams. Don Gilbert, representing local sports fans, commented on the strength of the teams. Supt. R. B. Irons pointed out that the players had carried on well when adversity stared them in the face, several times narrowly turning defeat into victory. "I suffered with them through many a game," he added. The high level of scholarship represented by the players on the two teams was lauded by Principal James Rae who said that almost always a good player is a good student. Al Mitchell, sports editor of the Globe-Gazette, stressed how good the teams' achievements look in the record books. How the student body and the Junior Chamber got behind the state Junior college tournament here, making it one of the best in history, was pointed out by Dean S. L. Rugland. Willis G. C. Bagley. president of the school board, warmly congratulated the teams. W. Earl Hall, managing editor ot the Globe-Gazete. said he had never seen teams which had come as near to producing 100 per cent of their potentialities as those here this year. Coach Menze declared that Mason City players had built up a high reputation, so that when teams run up against them they put up their stiffest battles. "To beat Mason City is considered a great achievement," he added. Coach Clayton "Chick" Sutherland, after describing the overhand shot made by Stoecker against Logan just before the final gun shot, introduced the junior college squad. Coach "Judge" Grimsley complimented the Ames team on its superior brand of ball. He said the high school players got more out of their possibilities than any he had ever seen. By the time the team reached the state tournament, it had battled' through hard sectional and district tourneys, he said, and still bore some of the scars. Mr. Bagley had invited Mr. Woolfries back to a victory celebration next year and in closing, Mr. Woolfries said, "I hope to eat here next year and that won't be doing half bagley at all." Mr. Woolfries was introduced by Dr. G. B. Harrison, chairman of the program committee. Fred Wagner, president of the Junior chamber, read a note of appreciation from the music mothers for the Junior chamber's part in picking up magazines. Some 135 tickets have already been sold for the dance Tuesday night, April 11, when the Junior chamber takes over Surf ballroom, for the night, Jack Bobier reported.
