STATEMENTBY EGGERT DOUBTED Senneff of Britt Certain Hammill Intended to Seek Nomination. BRITT--Denial of the claim that the late Former Gov. John Hammill would not eeek the republican nomination tor United States senator lias been made by Atty. Frank W. Senneff in a letter to a Des Moines newspaper. '"The issue of this morning's paper," he wrote, "has the following statement referring to the death of John Hammill: 'Just a few hours before he died, he sent word to Senator Dickinson, through Ray Eggert of Waterloo, that he would not seek the nomination, but hoped to be able to nominate Senator Dickinson for president at the republican national convention in Cleveland.' "I do not believe this to be a statement of fact and it was apparently made for the purpose of political gain. Mr. Hammill went to Minneapolis Sunday, where he died suddenly late Monday afternoon. As far aa I am able to ascertain, Ray Eggert was not in Minneapolis. There were no long distance telephone calls placed by Mr. Hammill to any point outside of Minneapolis. Mr. Hammill conversed with me Saturday, April 4, with reference to his candidacy. Would Announce April 15. "It was his intention to announce his candidacy for the United States senate, on April 15. This was confided to me and to others of his very dose friends in Britt. In fact, the statement and the principles for which he was going to stand were nearly completed and had it not bpen for his lamented death, would have been given to the press not later than April 15. The last conversation he had before his untimely death was with B. B. Burnquist of Fort Dodge, who was staying at the same hotel in Minneapolis where Mr. Hammill died, and in this conversation, he indicated to Mr. Burnquist that he would be a candidate. "Mr. Hammill had repeatedly told me of statements that were being made by those not authorized to speak for him, in which it was said that he would not be a candidate for the senate, and stated that he resented such unauthorized statements. Is Firmly Convinced. "From my complete knowledge of his intentions and my knowledge of the last talk he had with B. B. Burnquist of Fort Dodge and Mr.' Sutherland of Cedar Rapids about 20 minutes before his death, I am of the firm conviction that the statements attributed to have been made to Mr. Eggert are unfounded in fact. I have no desire to enter into this matter, except I do, MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, Al'RIL 8 New 1936 Pontiac Sedan TWENTY-ONE the as a personal friend of Mr. Ham mill and one who knew what his in tention s were, want to refute the statements attributed to him when he is no longer here to reply. "He openly stated to many of hi? friends in Britt, with whom "he con tided, that Senator Dickinson did not represent the thought and political philosophy of the people of Iowa, and that it would be a catastrophe for the country and for the republican party if Mr. Dickinson was nominated. His having said this repeatedly within a few days before his death, and his talk with Mr. Burnquist about 20 minutes before his death, would surely indicate that the statement of Mr. Eggert -is a figment of imagination upon his part, wholly unsupported by facts "I have no desire to hurt the candidacy of Senator Dickinson for any office to which he aspires, and do not believe that Senator Dickinson had any knowledge of. this statement given to the press by Mr. Eggert, but I do believe that no one should profit by statements attributed to a man after his lips have been sealed in death, and until Mr Eggert is able to furnish satisfactory evidence of this supposed word sent to him, I am convinced that his statement is wholly untrue or that Mr. Eggert has been grossly misquoted." 17 Are Indicted by Federal Grand Jury CEDAR RAPIDS, OP)--Seventeen indictments, most of them said to be on liquor charges, were returned Wednesday by the federal grand jury which reported to Judsre George C. Scott. Identity of the persons indicted was not revealed, since they are not in custody, officials said. Chrysler Dealer ·J- H.

Pryor of Des Moines, state 1ERA director, in a letter to Frank Pence, county relief director.

MANNING TALKS AT FORT DODGE Senate Candidate Says Man Should Be Named to "Sell" Party. FORT DODGE, OP)--Edwin Manning. Ottumwa, candidate for the republican nomination for United States senator, told a luncheon group in Fort Dodge Wednesday that the republican primary "is a family affair." "The republicans of Iowa are selecting- the man. who, in their opinion, will impress the voters in November as being the candidate who will best represent lou-a in the senate of the United States," he said. "The whole matter comes down to these questions: Who is the best Dalesman the republican party can :iut forward and who is the best vote getter the party can put forward?" Manning said he believed he "can out in November and sell the re- ublican party to the voters of [owa." He asserted that "I yield to no nan in my opposition to the new deal." ather Files Larceny Charge Against Son NEW HAMPTON, (,-PJ--John S. ·Coebnck, Bassett. farmer who last all caused the arrest of his son Villiam Koebrick, Osage, farmer, n an assault charge, has now filed n information charging his son vith larceny.

WASHINGTON, LI')--A list of wealthy and prominent men from whom the Crusaders hoped to raise money to carry on their anti-new deal activities was made public Wednesday by the senate lobby committee. It included Bernard Baruch, John W. Davis, Ogden Mills and a dozen other leading industrialists and lawyers all of whom Senator Gibson (R., Vt.) asked Fred G. Clark, national commander of the Crusaders to identify. Clark read a telegram sent March 11. 1935, to these prospects which said: "Earnestly desire your personal reaction to Crusaders broadcast over Columbia chain tonight." "Who was John W. Davis?" asked Gibson. Ran for President. "He is a democrat," said Clark. "He ran for president one year." Without smiling, Gibson then asked "who was Ogden Mills?" and Clark replied, "a lawyer." "This Sewell Avery of Chicago, whom you list," continued the senator, "isn't he chairman of the Montgomery Ward and isn't he secretary of the American Liberty leagues?" "We can't be responsible for everything they do," Clark said. After including Frank Kent, writer for the Baltimore Sun, and Mark Sullivan, author and columnist on the list, from which he read, Gibson said: "Were you trying to instruct these men what to do?" Other Names Read. "Maybe they would learn something," Clark replied. "They all are out to improve their minds." Other names read off were Wallace Alexander, Califomian, Joseph P. Warburg, New York banker, Alfred P. Sloan, Jr., of General Motors, and William L. Clayton of Houston, Texas. "Somebody got you up a good list," Gibson commented. "Didn't get us much money" Clark replied. . "We'll go into that later," Gibson said. Conversion of the crusaders from an antiprohibition organization to a group opposed to many new deal activities was described to the senate committee. 50 Other Prohibitions. Clark testified that late in 1933, after repeal of prohibition, a "majority of the leaders" felt there were Qldsmobile Boasts Many Advantages "fifty other prohibitions" that had to be eliminated. "Who was the supreme court wisdom in this organization," Senator Gibson asked. "There may not have been any " Clark said, but added with a grin: "I decide what we are going- to talk about." Clark explained his connection with the crusaders had been to direct it in forming its budget, cutting down expenses, and in suggesting means of raising more contributions.
