PLAN TO DEPORT IOWA PRISONERS Parole Board Recommends SuVpenHirigf Sentences ~ of 12 Men. DES MOINES, April 23. (/Pi- Suspension of sentences of 12 inmates of stale penal institutions on conditions that they be deported from the country was recommended today by the state board of parole. The decision followed receipt o£ notice from the United States immigration service that federal deportation orders had been issu-ed against the men. Gov. Clyde Herring and Warden Genn Haynes of Ft. Madison penitentiary had suggested the action. The board at the same time denied recommendations for suspension of sentences of seven other men, the refusal being' based principally on the fact that the prisoners involved were either Mexicans or Canadians who, it was believed, misrht return to the United States, Those whose sentences were suspended, however, included two Mexicans, each of whom had been sentenced to 40 years imprisonment on second degree murder charges. Neither was the actual slayer in the case, the board said, and it was felt their terms were "too severe," as the alleged slayer only received eight years. They are Luis Valle, and Emanuel Lopez, Mexicans. Sentenced Jan . 31,1929 at West Union, for deportation to Mexico. Guests were G. G. Miller of Sioux City, E. B. Stillman of Clear Lake, ! C. R.
