WILSON IS 25TH IOWAN TO SERVE IN I), S, SENATE Is Well Equipped in Experience to Represent State in Upper House DES MOINES -- George Wilson viU be the 25Ih person to repre- ent Iowa in the upper house of congress, Lou Gardner, publicity director of the Iowa republican central committee, points out in his current release. Senator Wil;on will be the fifth man who served in the state senate before ;oing to the U. S. senate,"the sixth owa governor to be thus advanced and the seventh native owan to represent the Hawkeyc state in the senate. % "George Wilson," writes Mr. Gardner, "will be the second Wilson in the history of this stale to become a United Slates senator. The first was James F. Wilsou of Fairfield, a native of Ohio, who made a useful record in public service. * * * "The Ohio Wilson was a mern- oer of Iowa's constitutional convention in the 1850s. He served n the lower house of the legislature in 1858. in the state senate n 1860. was sent to congress from .he first district, and was United States senator 1883-85. "James F. Wilson had a distinguished career. As a member of the house judiciary committee he was one of the managers of the impeachment trial of President Andrew Johnson. During his service in congress he filed a joint resolution for the abolition of slavery. This was the first formal action taken in congress towards abolition. "Iowa has had 22 United Slates senators since the republican party was formed, 18 of whom have been members of that party. In looking down the list and giving a glance at the preparatory work of those who have preceded him. Governor Wilson compares most favorably in his training, his experience and his natural ability. "The years he spent as a page in the state senate laid a foundation during the formative period of his life that cannot be overlooked in its values. He began his political career as county attorney in Polk county. He served as judge of the district court, and as a state senator for three terms. * * * "He has been Iowa's governor for four years, with a year and a month of service as a. war governor. His activities have brought him a wide ranee of knowledge and experience, and developed In him an aptitude for the tasks of public service. "Governor Wilson's experience and record compare with that of Senator John H. Gear who started work at Burlington under a $50 a year contract, went to the legislature for three sessions, was speaker of the house, served three terms in congress, was governor of the state, and United States senator, 1895-1900. * * * "Gear, as governor, made a great record in economy. While the figures involved in his administration shrink by comparison with those of present times, his attitude on public economy and service were similar to those for which Governor Wilson has firmly stood throughout the administration he is now closing. "Governor Wilson should carry with him to Washington the well wishes of every lowan. He goes there to represent all of Iowa times of serious moment. The crisis of the hour cry out for the service in public life of men of his loyalty and courage with his ideas of thrift, saving and practical administration of govcrn- ·meut. May he have the same strength of purpose and the same coot-headed judgment that he has shown in administering the- affairs of Iowa." United Nations Planes Attacked French Sub Trying to Join Allies DES MOINES, OT--The bewildering plight of a French submarine which sought to cast its lot with the allies only to become the target of united nations bombers each lime it showed its periscope was related by an Iowa sailor home on furlough. Merle Staley, chief commissary steward on one of the ships in an allied convoy last November, said the submarine surfaced with the intention of' surrendering to the allies. But patrol planes scouting ahead of the convoy let go their bombs. The sub crash-dived. Later the sub tried again, got another bombing from the planes unable to see the sub's signals It ducked again. On a third attempt, the sub- marine's signals were interpreted by an united nations destroyer and the Frenchmen placed themselves and their ship in custody of (he allies.

She had resided in this vicinity until five years ago, when she left to make her home with her daughter, Mrs. A. A. Ludwig. Defense Officials on Blackout Laws DES MOINES, IIP}--Slate and city civilian defense officials here have taken issue with views expressed by Frank G. Pierce of Marshalllown relative to the validity of blackout ordinances passed by some Iowa cities. Pierce, secretary of the Iowa League of Municipalities, declared that towns and cities of the state have no power to pass and enforce blackout ordinances. "It is a mistaken idea." lie declared, '-that the military can order a blackout and that civilians must obey (his military order." "I think he's absolutely wrong and even if he were right, he's unco-operative," Rodney Q. Selby, state civilian defense co-ordinator asserted. Col. H. H. Polk, commander ot the Polk county civilian defense corps, said he believes the army has the power to order blackouts. "We didn't attempt to prosecute violators after the last blackout, but if it happens again, we will," Polk added. Selby said a committee is preparing proposed enabling legislation for submission to the general assembly, which meels next week. The measures would authorize cities and towns to enact blackout regulations and provide penalties for violations of these regulations.
