MORE RECORDS ARESUBPENAED First National Company Minutes Included in Ontjes-McNider Trial With thousands of exhibits from the records of the Northwestern States Portland Cement company already submitted as evidence in the Ontjes-McNider trial in district court here Judge Henry N. Graven Tuesday acceded to a request by F. A. Ontjes. counsel for the claimants, that records of the First National company also be subpenaed. The records of the Indianhead Farms, Inc., and the Redineam corporation also were requested by Mr. Ontjea in his subpena but after John Senneff, attorney for the defense, had conceded for the record that the two corporations were owned and controlled from their inception by Hanford Mac- Nider and his mother, May H. McNider, the judge refused 'to order them produced. Limits Company Minutes · The judge also limited the production of First National company records to the minutes from the 1924 annual meeting to Oct. 31, 1925, and the stock records from Jan. 1, 1925, to March 18, 1929, after which date Mr. Senneff conceded that Hanford MacNidei- was sole owner of the company.' Mr. Ontjes argued that the records were material to the present case as they showed that C. H. McNider, Hanford MacNider, F J Hanlon and -W. G. C. Bagley held directorships and officerships in both the First National and Northwestern States companies and that C. H. McNider controlled the votes of the others in meetings of the Northwestern States company directors and stockholders. Is Eighlh Week The 1925 period was called particularly material because in that year the Northwestern Slates company's holdings in the Alpha Portland Cement company were disposed of through the First National company. Tuesday's session marked the beginning of the eighth week of the trial. Herbert Loomer, order clerk in the cement company's office from 1919 to 1929, was put on the stand by Mr. Ontjes during the morning session. He was questioned concerning time spent in tlie company's offices-by Mr. McNider while he was president and general manager. Loomer on Stand Mr. Loomer testified that he did lot recall having seen Mr. McNider there very often. He also testified that directors were on hand little more than one day each year. On cross examination by John Senneff, defense attorney, Mr. Loonier admitted, however, that he knew only one director by sight. Peter Anderson, secretary' ot the local cement company, resumed the stand shortly before noon to continue identification of checks issued by the company to its salaried employes as Christmas presents. Each employe received one month's exira salary for Christmas, according to Mr. Anderson.
