TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 1936 of their equipment to the surface up the mine shaft, indicating that their work was almost completed and that the men would soon be released. Cheers Are Heard. At tlae top of the rescue shaft stood hundreds of persons. Many of .. them had been on duty day and night, striving as best they could to assist in the work of rescue. When the report came up from the depths that the two imprisoned men at last had been reached, " cheers broke out. The excitement was so intense that royal Canadian mounted po- .lice cleared a space and warned the crowd to stay back from the mine head. Stretchers, prepared by the ambulance unit on duty during the last five days, were taken down the ; shaft to assist in Bringing the men 'up. Still Danger Below. There still was danger down below, for the rescue crews had pushed forward so fast that little time had been wasted in shoring up crumbling walls properly. The announcement of the rescuers' apparent success was made by an excited miner who came to the top of the rescue shaft and shouted: "We've got through!" For anxious moments afterward, there was no further news' from the workings, but it was surmised that the miners had reached a comparatively unobstructed gallery leading to the trapped men. . Take Medical Supplies. Dr. F. R. Davis, minister of health of Nova Scotia, went down the rescue shaft carrying a hypodermic needle and other medical . supplies. Other men picked 'up blankets and hot water bottles to be used in caring for the suffering men below. It was not known on the surface how long it would take to get the two living men and the body of their dead companion up into the open air, but officials said they thought it would take at least an . hour. The way which lay before them was a long, twisting, narrow low tunnel, through which it was difficult to carry anything. Watch for Landslide. The special stretchers which had been devised for the rescue had rope supports to permit them to bend around the tortuous passageway. Miners said they feared any jars against the sides of the tunnel might cause a landslide. The three men-in the lead of the rescue efforts were Joe Simpson, unit head, George Morrell and H. Hirshfield. · They had worked steadily since 9 a. m., in the last push to reach the men. First Opened Shaft. It was those three whp first opened the Reynolds' shaft, through yhioii the approach was begun, and it" was they who tore out the last rock-f rom the xeecue tunned They were the^. -"face -workers"" "who tore "material blocking their progress fronr its'place with bare hands or picks. In an unpropped tunnel through an. area which has already collapsed, theirs was one of the most dangerous jobs imaginable. Daughter Is Born.

DES MOINES, (JP1--The Iowa supreme court Wednesday set May 14 as date of oral arguments in the appeal of Clarence Price from his conviction and life sentence for the murder of Edith Kuhl, his 13 year old niece, at Pacific Junction. . The girl was beaten to death, and her sister Helen, 17, seriously injured when they were attacked in their sleep March 20, 1935. Helen later recovered and testified against Price. Errors Are Claimed. Attorneys for Price argued in documents filed with the court that several rulings of Judge Earl Peters were in error. They also charged Judge Peters erred in refusing to withdraw a possible first degree murder conviction from consideration by the jury. The claim was based on a charge that only circumstantial evidence was introduced in the trial and a contention that there was no evidence of premediation or intent to kill. On Siegel Case. The court set May 5 as date for hearing petitions to reconsider its refusal to grant the appeal of Joe Siegel for a Woodbury county manslaughter conviction and of Gale Johnson from his-Des Moines county murder conviction. A total of 146 cases were assigned for hearing during the first division of the May court term, one of the "heaviest assignments on record.

URGEENFOllNG TRAFFIC LAWS Iowa Safety Council Says "Lunatic Fringe" Must Be Eliminated. DES MOINES--Strict enforcement of the traffic laws--with jail terms when violations are serious-is the only way to rid the highways of their "lunatic fringe," the Iowa State Safety council pointed out in a. statement Wednesday. "While highway 'safety starts with education, it does not end there by any means because it fails to solve the problem created by the 5 or 10 per cent of our drivers who are responsible for nearly half of our highway killings," it was observed. "The only language understood by them is the language of compulsion, jail sentence of the withholding of driving privileges." The safety council statement said one of the important aims of safety council organizations was developing a public opinion which will "not only support but insist upon an enforcement of safety rules, without fear or favor." Since formal organization of the state council was completed less than two months ago local councils have been formed in nearly 20 Iowa counties, and preliminary organization work is under way in 62 other counties. It is predicted that within the year councils will be formed in all counties of the state. The counties in which councils have been organized include Wapel lo, Mahaska, Poweshiek, Pottawattamie, Appanoose, Des Moines, Webster. Van Buren. Lyon, Carroll, Story. Woodbury, Wright and Lee counties. The executive board of the newly organized state safety council wil' meet in Des Moines Sunday at a session called by W. Earl Hall of Mason City. Discussion of grade crossing safety program and further organization matters are on the program. Now Operating Bakery. ACKLEY--C. F.
