MARCH 8 · 1937 Death Menaces Famous "Green Tree" SEVEN LcClaire is aroused in a campaign lo save ils famous Green Tree, Ihe best known tree on the Mississippi river. It lias been discovered that large holes in the trunk and rotting limbs menace the li-cc^s life and make a major operation, under direction of an expert tree surgeon, necessary it the elm Is (o survive. A committee has been sol up, under the chairmanship of George Brown, to raise a fund to provide (he operation. Some contributions already have been received and the mayor and city council have issued a statement thanking those who have contributed and urging that the fund he made large enough to insure proper attention for the tree. Each contribution of $1 or more will be acknowledged by a framed photograph o! the tree. Twice before, the famous old tree lias been saved from death. Once, during the Civil war the Mississippi lapped away at the earth around the tree until its roots were exposed. At that time the town was engaged in improving its boat land- ing, and (he contractor, one Joe Perkins, consented to built! a wall around the tree and fill in enough flirt to save it. The second time was about 40 years agro when a railroad built its line through the town and the free stood in ils tray. The town rallied to keep (be tree from being cut down and came lo an agreement with the railroad. Beneath Ibis old tree, Col. William F. Cody (Buffalo Bill) played as a lad and a monument to him was erected some years ago by the lale .loe Earned, a boyhood chum. Beneath it, too. river men, when "The IHississin' was the Great Highway," loafed and slept as boats lay at the landing taking on supplies or awaiting the rapids pilots. Prof. F. ni. Fryxell of Augusfana college, Kock Island, went into the tree's history some years ago and prepared a book on it. The elm is registered in the tree hall of fame in Washington.

PLYMOUTH BUILDS GREAT CARS CONTINUE GAINS IN FARM INCOME Noticeable Decline Noted in Iowa Business Lines in January. IOWA CITY, (fP)--A noticeable decline in Iowa's and the nation's business lines in January, brightened only by gain in fai'm income and the price of farm products, was noted Saturday in the business report of Prof. George R. Davies of the University of low= bureau of business research. Davies pointed out, however, that the decline is not of a serious nature because the recovery initiated in 1932 and 1933 has proceeded irregularly, and rapid advances have been . followed by short periods of decline and readjustment. Concerning the situation in Iowa, Davies asserted, "the decline in January as compared with December is also observable, but, as in the nation, a favorable comparison still obtains with a year ago." Davies added that several mcmUis of decline would still be quite in line with precedent. Statehouse Highlights DBS MOINES, (ft)--Iowa lawmakers, toward the end of the past week, started to think about when the present session of the legislature would win up its work. Most of them expressed the hope that it will be completed within the stipulated time, late in April. Most outspoken was Senator .D. W. Kimberly (R) of Davenport, who told the senate "We don't want to stay here two weeks on our own time like we did two years ago." He urged that the appropriations committee report out the budget bill as soon as possible so the senate could start to work on it. BORED--A few ' representatives and senators said they were getting lii-ed of it all. There hasn't been (he excitement this session, they explained, that there was two ycnrs ago when the chambers were fighting over such things as investigations, liquor laws, and chain store taxes. As yet there have been tio mass lobby attempts such as the one which brought a thousand or so oil station workers lo the statehouse during the last session when the chain lax bill was up. BITTER--One outspoken house member disclosed he intends, some time near the end of the session, "lo make one speech which will get them all sore." He said he would pack his grip first and get ready lo leave town. · The representative refused to say what was bothering him. He just indicated profound irritation at thn way everything was going. SNOOZE . . . Legislative boredom has manifested itself in the cat naps o£ the two chambers indulged in while sessions are going on. Ah one time this week a trained observer could have walked through the house and senate and spotted a dozen or two lawmakers snoozing. The accepted _ Iculinique is to lean back in the swivel chair, fold the hnnds over'the stomach, ,-intl let sleep accompany the gentle buzz of oratory in Ihe chambers. Experienced legislative sleepers are not bothered by gavol pounding. BILLS . . . Next week the legislative hoppers will close to all but bills introduced by committees. A rush of measures is expected Monday morning when the two houses meet again. On last days for bill introduction members often shoot in proposals they haven't read. Typical of such n bill was otic introduced by a senator the other day. Asked just what the bill proposed, he asked: "What bill'.'" informed of Ihe title, lie replied: "Oh, T guess the girl (his committee clerk) put t h a t in. It eajnu from home in Itie m a i l . She'll know what il was." LOBBYISTS . . . When PI hill (n require registration of lobbyists comes up next week, several lawmakers said they expected to propose ccmcdy amendments such as one to compel all lobbyists to wear cowbells. 3 Divorce Petitions at Hampton on File HAMPTON--Three divorce petitions were filed in the office of W. T. Webb, county clerk, Friday, the last dny for filing before Die March term of court.
