THURSDAY, MARCH 16, 1939 I- harmony with the political, military and economic interests of the reich." The German fuehrer decreed that the head of the autonomous administration should enjoy all protection and honors accorded the head of a state. He said there would be supreme head of the autonomous protectorate and a reichs-protector as guardian of Germany's interests. He did not name them. Hungary Acts With Hitler At almost the same moment that Ribbentrop read the decree, Count Paul Teleky, premier of Hungary, proclaimed in Budapest that Cart patho-Ukraine, easternmost part of the crumbled Czecho-Slovak republic, had become "part of the kingdom of Hungary." He said it would be autonomous. It was considered certain that Hungary had acted with Hitler's consent in annexing the province, through which Hungarian armies already had been driving for two days. Hungarian t r o o p s had reached the Polish border, establishing a common Polish Hungarian frontier. Hitler's troops completed occupation of Bohemia and Moravia as the fuehrer laid down the new law of the land. . Protection Is Outlined Hitler himself slept Wednesday night in Hradcany castle, once seat of Bohemian kings and for the last 20 years residence of Czecho-Slovakia's presidents. "Foreign affairs and especially the protection of citizens abroad are to be taken over · by the reich," the fuehrer's decree said. The proclamation continued, point by»point, to outline the nature of Hitler's protection: '"The reich will grant military protection to the protectorate. "The "customs administration will be taken over by the reich. "Laws now in force in Bohemia and Moravia will continue except where they run counter to German law." Crowd Shoufs "Heil" The crowd before the palace was mostly German and in response to the fuehrer's appearance it set up shouts of "Heil!" and a refrain of, "Fuehrer, we thank you!" Like the ancient Roman Augustus, the modern Caesar wanted to see and be seen by the citizens of Prague and to inspect economic and military resources. He reached the capital unobtrusively Wednesday night during a blizzard, following quickly after his army. The army, instead of the flowers and kisses they received in Sude- tenland, got boos and hisses from Czechs on the streets but there was no great disorder. Because of this, great interest was apparent over the reception for Hitler. CHINESE PICKETS WITHDRAW PORTLAND, Ore., (/P)--Withdrawal of Chinese pickets Thursday ended a 13 day tieup of scrap- iron consigned to Japan and prevented a possible port closure. MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE AUNTHET By Robert Quillen "Maybe I'm too old- fashioned, but I don't call it keepin' the radio pure and innocent when they broadcast t h e s e songs about lovin' till da\vn. :I ONTJES HITS AT DEFENSE CLAIM Seeks to Show Local Company's Ability to Acquire Alpha Stock The defense contention that the Northwestern States Portland Cement company was financially unable to make purchases of Alpha Portland Cement company stock in 1920 and 1921 was attacked by F. A. Ontjes, claimants' counsel, in the suit against the C. H. McNider estate in district court here Thursday. Two extra dividends paid by the local company in 1920 totaled $245,000, the attorney brought out in his questioning of William M. Hatch, Detroit, former president and manager of the Peerless Portland Cement company. The purchase price of the Alpha stoclc which Mr. McNider acquired in his own name from the Sandusky Cement company in 1920 was $240,900. Further questioning brought out that a dividend of $40,000 was paid on the block acquired from the Sandusky company before Mr, McNider made the nest purchase of Alpha stock which cost him ?49,000 in 1921. Want Profits Made Principal claim in the $2,393,143 suit now on trial is on the point that Mr. McNider should have turned over his- Alpha stock acquisitions to the local company which he headed. Mr. Ontjes and his associates now seek to recover the profits made by Mr. McNider on the transactions. Inquiry about the fairness of the salary paid to Mr. McNider as president and general manager of the Northwestern States plant continued as the claimants sought to prove that salaries up to 530,000 annually were excessive. Plant Favorably Siluafed · The witness amplified the statement that the reasonable value of Mr. McNider's services was S15,- 000 a year by explaining that the local plant was favorably situated and that by comparison its management would take less energy, application and ability than the management of plants of less favorable location or of a company with several plants. Under cross examination by John Senneff, defense attorney, he had testified previously that Ben Condon, head of the Hawkeye Portland Cement company, Des Moines, drew a salary of 525,000 a year. He admitted that the Hawkeye plant was only about 60 per cent as large as the local one, but said that it was less favorably situated. Traces Peerless History B. F. Affleck, head of Universal- Atlas, the largest cement company in the world, received about $52,000 a year, Mr. Hatch said. Mr. Affleck was in charge of a number of plants and was a full time man, he testified. He also traced the history of the Peerless company from 1899 to 1S33 when it went into receivership and he resigned, bringing out in answer to questions by F. A. Ontjes, counsel for the claimants, that numerous plant improvements took a large amount from the earnings and assets of the company. Offers Bill to Put Tax on Bachelors Over 30 Years of Age DOVER, Del.. Wj--State Representative Thomas A. Kellum wants to tax bachelors who have passed their thirtieth birthdays. His bill proposes a £100 annual levy on bachelors between 30 and 35, $150 for those between 35 and 40, and $200 for all over 40. "There would be no necessity for further increases," he said, "because by this time all bachelors would undoubtedly have decided it was cheaper to marry." "FELT LIKE CALLING OUT FIRE DEPT.," CARPENTER ASSERTS Carpenter Tells How Greatly Sourness, B u r n i n g Distressed Him After Every Meal Till Natex Brought Relief. "What a grand sensation it is to eat a hearty meal and know that you won't suffer afterwards," declares Mr. Joe Papousek, well- known Walker, Iowa, carpenter. "My worries go back all of 3 years. In nil that time I don't believe I had one natural bowel movement, always depending on some laxative or other. Food distressed me so much that I was actually afraid to eat. If I managed to keep the food in my stomach at all, it would -soon sour and cause such a burning sensation that I often felt like calling out the fire department. Gas often bloated me up painfully too. I don't think a day passed either that I didn't suffer with a headache, dizzy spell, spots before the eyes and a gnawing ache in my back and shoulders that made my work almost a torture. "Then I read of a case just like mine in which Natex had accomplished wonders, so I lost no time in starting on the medicine myself. Well, sir, almost before I realized it, my bowels were moving like a charm, better than they had in long years. Imagine my surprise, too, when I discovered that I could eat and enjoy 3 good meals a day without any discomfort at all afterwards! Neither do I have to'put up with those old headaches, dizzy spells, spots bc- Mr. Joe Papousek Tore the eyes or back and shoulder aches anymore--all thanks to Natex!"

A Hungarian officer said that before noon 100 Hungarians had been killed or wounded in the battle. He declared severe losses had been inflicted on Czech forces resisting Hungary's invasion of the easternmost section of · broken Czecho-Slovakia. (Dispatches f r o m Bucharest said Premier Augustin Volosin of Carpatho-Ukraine had fled into Rumania and that confusion prevailed in Chust, the regional capi- Shortly before noon Hungarian troops, advancing to carry out the Budapest government's decree of annexation, encountered trenches and barbed wire entanglements which were being defended by Czech troops and Ukranian forces. Marching through snow and harassed by snipers hidden in-the mountains, the Hungarians had made steady progress until they were held up by the trench system. The Infantry had paused while light artillery opened fire. Heavy artillery, still far back along the snowy roads leading to Chust, was being hurried to the front. NEW REFUGEE PROBLEM ADDED Dissolution of Nation May Force Many Jews to Seek New Homes WASHINGTON, (ff) -- A new refugee problem, growing out of the dissolution of Czecho-SIo- vakia, was added Thursday to the existing struggle to care for German-Jewish refugees. As American officials followed central European developments to determine how they would affect the United States, it was estimated that there are 376,000 Jews in Czecho-SlovakJa. A large portion of Czech Jews, it is believed here, will be required through German pressure to leave Bohemia and Slovakia. Dispatches disclose that even before the break-up of the post-war republic, Adolf Hitler had brought pressure on the Prague government toward this end. The inter-governmental refugee committee set up in London on the initiative of President Roosevelt and Secretary Hull will see what can be done to aid the Czech Jews. If Germany absorbs Bohemia and Slovakia politically, the problem will be simplified, because the mandate of the inter-governmental committee covers refugees either in German territory or those who have been obliged to leave German territory. Wisconsin, Michigan Dig Out From Drifts MILWAUKEE, (^--Communication lines were restored and train service resumed Thursday as northern Wisconsin and upper Michigan dug out from snowdrifts piled up by the season's worst blizzard.
