cial train sped toward Dresden and thence toward Prague. Facts Are Listed Government-spokesmen made it plain, however, that the following facts must be recognized as irrevocable: f 1. Hacha has ceased to be president. Hitler will work in close co-operation with him, however, for the liquidation of the Czech state. 2. The Czech army has ceased to exist. As a gesture of chivalry, however, Czech officers were permitted to keep their sabers and side-arms, and were not compelled to hand them over to German occupation officers. 3. The Czechs and Moravians will be conceded full cultural autonomy. They will be allowed to continue the use of their language, to have their own schools .and tc preserve their national customs and costumes. ···"· ··"\Viir Fly'Swastika' ·' .4. They will fly the nazi swastika as their flag; but on festive occasions they may also ily their ancient Bohemian and Moravian local flags. . . 5. Their passports will be German but possibly with a notation indicating that the "holder is a Czech, by. "folkdom." Foreign legations in Prague will be changed to consulates. ·f 6.'.As Bohemia and Moravia are now;. part of ' greater Germany, obviously German money, German postage stamps, German regulations for imports and exports will obtain. 7." Insofar as possible local government will be in the hands of Bohemians and Moravians. Can't Join Nail Army 8. Existing commercial agreements with oth'er nations will be handled- in the same manner as was done in the case of Austria and Sudetenland--by m u t u a l agreement with the opposite contracting parties. 9. No male belonging to the Bohemian or Moravian "folkdom" will be expected to serve' in the army of greater Germany. ·' 10. Whether or not members of either "folk group" can be used as policemen depends on the spirit of loyalty to ' the new -regime which Bohemia and Moravia will show in ensuing days. If accepted, they must naturally swear an oath of loyalty to. Hitler. ·Guided-by- 2,Principles 11. Administrative officials will be allowed to continue to function in so fair .as they are willing loyally to serve, their new master. Summing up these plans, a government spokesman said: "We shall be guided by two principles in liquidating the former Czech state--from the viewpoint of state'policy Bohemia and MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE WEDNESDAY, MAfiCH 15, 1939 Moravia are now a part at greater Germany; from the viewpoint ot racial or folk policy the greatest possible cultural autonomy is to be accorded the people who have now placed themselves under our protection."

WINTER TAKES BLOW AT IOWA Frigid Gale From North Reaches High Velocity in State DES MOINES, (IF}-- King winter took another crack at Iowa Wednesday and the entire state shivered as a frigid gale from the north swept snow flurries over scattered areas and.sent the mercury tumbling to uncomfortable near-zero depths. The.abrupt change from balmy conditions earlier in the week spelled relief to flood harassed sections in the southwest corner o£ the state and was expected to end an increasing threat of flood conditions along the Des Moines river basin by retarding the runoff, · The northwest blasts attained a velocity of nearly 50 miles an hour in the Des Moines area Tuesday night and were just as vicious elsewhere. Borne in on the winds were clouds of dust. The Des Moines weather bureau said Iowa missed the heavy snows that fell in sections of Minnesota, and that the fall here ranged from a half to one and a half inches but caused little discomfort or inconvenience. The Iowa highway patrol reported all routes open except highway 14, a gravel route between Oskaloosa and Ottumwa, which was partly under water. M'NIDER SALARY IS QUESTIONED Witness Says $15,000 Fair; Admits He Drew $16,000 in Like Job A reasonable salary for the president and manager of a plant like the Northwestern States Portland Cement company from 1919 to 1928 would have been $15,000 a year, according to testimony by a witness in the suit against the estate of C. H. McNider, late head ot the local company. - On cross.examination, however, She witness, William M. riateh, De- trpit, president and manager o£ the Peerless --Portland.. Cement company from 1923 to 1933. admitted that he drew 516,000 a year while his company was traveling a road which resulted in its going into .receivership in 1933. Defense Attorney John Senneff also drew from him the admission that the Peerless company only paid one dividend ,on its common stock in the 34 years of its existence, SI a share in 1929. Paid 552,000 Total He also admitted that an associated firm' was paid an additional 525,000 a year for assisting in the management of the Peerless company and that another executive also drew 516,000 annually, making^ a total disbursement for management in 1930 o£ 552,000. (A portion of the claim against the estate now being litigated concerns alleged overpayments of salary to Mr. McNider. Testimony in the case has shown that Mr. McNider received as much as 530,000 a year). Continued cross examination also brought out that heads of other cement companies drew salaries of from $16,000 to more than 550,000 annually. $13,000 Fair Pay Mr. Hatch had testified Tuesday in answer to a question by F. A. Ontjes, chief counsel for the claimants, that a company could "very readily" have hired a competent man at a salary of $15,000 yearly. On cross examination Wednesday he admitted that he had been sitting in the local courtroom for five weeks except for weekend trips to Kansas City. Mr. Ontjes agreed to pay him "from 510 to 515 a day" in addition to expenses for his time, he testified, regardless of the outcome o£ the case. '7 have no interest in the outcome of the case," he answered to a quest! o t n by Mr. Senneff. His principal occupation now is the "resort real -estate business," he testified, although he has some interests in Kansas City. Company Paid Expenses He also admitted that his company paid his expenses for attending meetings of the Portland Cement association, trips to numerous other plants in connection with studying .waste heat plants and also trips to Chicago and New York in connection xvith defending government charges of violation of the anti-trust laws by cement companies. (The defense has attempted to show that Mr. McNider's checks for expenses on trips were in connection with like activities instead oE th'e plaintiffs claim that the Northwestern States · company paid his expenses on the trips on which he acquired L'aSalle Portland Cement company stock in his own name.)

In view of the armament race everywhere, he said, the red army had been compelled to abandon its former organization by territories and become entirely a professionally-officered organization, trained in "the spirit of internationalism." His announcement apparently meant that such separate divisions as the far eastern army --which has an autonomous fighting force--had been brought "under a high command. He addressed the 18th congress of the communist party at the Kremlin on a crucial subject as the German army charged through Czecho-Slovakia in its "drive to the east," the goal of which is !!ie rich soviet Ukraine. Nazi domination of the three western Czechoslovak provinces would bring the German army to within 200 miles of the Ukraine, and if it dominated Ruthenia, the eastern province, which Hungarian troops occupied Wednesday, the nazi spearhead would have reached within 90 miles of the soviet Ukraine.
