It was sunny and cold as the celebratory day started. Minister ol Interior Wilhelm Prick, of the German nazi cabinet, arrived at 9:25 a. m. {2:2o a. m. CST), riding in an open car, as the crowd awaited Hitler. 29 Pcrsous Arrested Nazi gestapo operatives got into action promptly, and it was announced that 29 persons had been arrested, including one Jew and several Lithuanians suspected of having acted as informers during the previous regime. As the German troops crossed the frontier opposite Tilsit Dr. Ernst Neuman, Memel nazi leader, received Erik Koch, nazi storm troop leader for East Prussia, at th)e Euise bridge which marks the frontier. ·German officials aready were in control of the Memel government Jlenrich Himmler, chief of the gestapo, the nazi secret police, and Kurt Daluege, chief o£ the regular police forces, had crossed the frontier late Wednesday night, with a strong force of police.

ITALY AWAITS FRENCH MOVES King Emanuel Says : Country Wants Peace "as Long as Possible" ROME, OT -- King Vittorio Emanuele told the new streamlined legislature Thursday that Italy had notified France of questions dividing them, giving some of'his listeners the impression his AUNT MET By Robert Quillen '. "I don't like funerals, and I didn't care much about Ben, but I'd been p.eedin' a good cry for two weeks." Senate Hears Cattle Better Cared for Than Inmates at State Owned Institutions Vote to Bar Exhibition government was awaiting French moves toward settlement. His Majesty, in a speech from the throne, also said Italy wanted peace to last "as long as possible" so she could develop her African empire but he declared it was necessary to continue rearming "in the sky, on the tend and en the sea." Approved by Mussolini Because the speech had the obvious approval of Premier Mussolini, diplomats considered it of hopeful significance. French circles regarded it as leaving the door open to diplomatic negotiations for settlement of Italy's territorial claims against France. They found encouragement in the king's failure to mention Italy's "natural aspirations" for Tunisia, Djibouti, Corsica and Nice which stirred a clamor wnen Foreign Minister Ciano made such mention in the old chamber of deputies last November 30. Pope Urges Peace Diplomats felt it was too early, however, to foresee any immediate French-Italian settlement. "Regarding France," the king said, "my government has made known the questions which divide the two countries in this moment in an official note o£ last Dec. 17." While the king was speaking Pope Pius XII again expressed his desire for "peace based on justice and mutual co-operation." This came in an audience for 700 Hungarian pilgrims. Says Times Uneasy Vittorio Emanuele acknowledged that events in eastern Europe had brought uneasy times. "Europe has not yet and will not have times which can be called easy, and the recent collapse of some of the artificial political structures born after the World war demonstrates it," he said. "But it is difficult times which reveal the character of peoples and it is for this reason that no doubt clouds my mind with regard to the future of the Italian people, a future guaranteed by the arms and by the ever more profound united national consciousness tempered by the hard tests o£ war and the no less arduous duties of peace." The king said that Italy was arming to "save peace for us and everybody." Norway Doubles Navy Recruits in Tension OSLO, Norway, (ff)--Norway in the face of growing tension in northern Europe, decided Thursday to double the number of its naval recruits.

MAN IS ALL READY TO WORK FARM AGAIN of Iowa Owned Stock at Expositions DES MO1NES, (fft -- lhe Iowa enate heard Thursday that cattle nd horses at state institutions arc better cared for than the in- ates." When they heard (his charge, (he senators voted 28 to 21 to stop the exhibition of state- owned livestock at fairs. There was a "Ferdinand the Bull" atmosphere in (he upper house when the discussion started, but it ended in all seriousness. A child welfare bill was sched- led for consideration Thursday earning, but Senator George L. 'arker (R), Independence, chairman of the board of control inves- igating committee, obtained con- ent to bring up the bill which 'ould provide a business manger for each state institution. Senator Paul P. Stewart (R), Vlaynard. offered the amendment 0 strike put the section which vould prevent exhibition at the tate's prize animals at fairs. Parker Lists Items In opposing the Stewart amendment. Senator Parker declared: 1. Inmates of board of control nstitutions do not have an ade- uate milk supply. 2. Dairy cows at these institu- ions have individual drinking ountains. 3. There is a ti ncup for 30 or 40 latients in a ward. "They have electric .fans and .ir-conditioning for the cattle in he cattle barns, but no electric ans and air-conditioning for the leople in the institutions," assert:d Senator C. B. Hoeven (R), Alon. Assailed by Elthon : The people are crowded up under the raflers in the heat o£ ummer--that's the way we are aking care of our inmates," Hoe/en continued. "And they are Idling the calves that would grow ip and produce milk for the pa- ients, to make calves' liver for the superintendent's family," "They have steam heat and ilectric fans for the bulls, while he old people are dying of the leat in our institutions," Senator Leo Elthon (R), Fertile, declared. The vote was 48 to 0 on final passage. The bill provides one T arming superintendent for all of lie institutions, in addition to a justness manager for each one. The governor would make the appointments. VOTE TO TRANSFER PATIENTS TO COUNTIES Transfer to the counties of 500 to 1,000 mental patients from the four insane institutions with a view to avoiding an estimated $2,000,000 to 33,000,000 building program was approved 76 to 25 the Iowa house of representatives Thursday. Action came on a measure permitting the removal of harmless mental patients upon approval of a commission and the boards of county supervisors. The house spent its entire forenoon on the bill and accomplished nothing else except to vote 80 to 8 to reject senate amendments to the farm-to-mai'ket road bill. This sends the measure into a conference committee of house and senate members. Sponsors of the bill for transfer of insane patients encountered the stubborn resistance of house members who believed the proposa would shoulder heavy expense upon the counties. Rep. A. C. Greene (R) of Denison, and Rep. John Knudson {.__, of Marshalltown, led the attacking forces. Rep. Henry Burma (R) of Alii son, sponsor of the plan, offse much of the house opposition when he said the cost of countj care of harmless patients woul, be greatly under that of the cos a patient at Mt. Pleasant, Cherokee, Independence or Clarinda. COLUMBIA BROADCASTING SYSTEM NETWORK 1211 KILOCYCLES Air Ya Listenim? H. H.

Suffering Forced Him to Quit and Sell Tools -- But Says He's "Rarin' to Go" Since Wonderful Relief Through Natex. William Hughes, 75, Anamosa, Jones Co., farmer, says: "My suffering goes back all of 15 years, and though I spent hundreds o£ dollars I never could End any real relief. I was always troubled with a bad case of constipation, had headaches and dizzy- spells and a bad taste in my mouth almost- every day. I suffered so with sourness, gas, indigestion, heart fluttering, shortness of breath and acid-risings after my meals that I finally went on a diet of nothing but cereals and* milk. There was such misery in my back that if I bent over, it would be minutes before I'd be able to straighten up again. My muscles were always stiff and sore, and my kidneys called me up so often (8 to 10 times) at night that sound sleep was out of the question. "Some months ago I felt so very bad that I quit work and sold all my farm tools. Then I began to read and hear so much about Na- tex that I started on the treatment myself. "I can't praise it enough now. It got my bowels working wonderfully well right from the outset. Now I'm eating and enjoying anything put before me; the headaches, dizziness, bad taste all seem to have deserted me; my kidneys Mr. William Hughes rarely if ever call me up and I back fir muscles anymore. Yes, sir, I'm buying new farm tools now because I intend to work my farm again! Natex gets all the credit for this amazing relief, and it's one medicine I'm only too glad to recommend to anyone." Natex is sold by most all leading druggists everywhere and is being especially featured in Mason City by the Engler Drug Co., 5 South Federal Ave. SPECIAL OUT-OF-TOWN DEALERS Free Drug Store, Garner: Nerby Drug Store, Lake Mills; Pinckney Drug Store, Forest City; Marschall Drug Store, Hampton; Corner Drug Store, Clear Lake; Bass Pharmacy, Clear Lake; Vcenker Drug Mrs. Roosevelt Tells Audience She Has Resigned From DAR LOS ANGELES, (iP)--"I have resigned from the D.
