Future War Veterans to Quit Satire for Permanent Principles PRINCETON, N. J., OP)--The Veterans of Future Wars, say the powers-to-be behind this young and surprising organization, are soon going to translate some of their satire into matter-of-fact and permanent aims and principles. Not that they're going to abandon their demands for such things as immediate payment of a $l,OUU bonus and an immediate pilgrimage to future battlefields for members of their home fire division. Far from it. They're merely formulating plans to make their movement a lasting one. "It's only that our straight lace is becoming sincere," was the way U. J. P. Rushton of Birmingham, Ala., one of the Princeton undergraduates who conceived the idea, put it. Rushton, whose official title is regional commander for the south, admitted rather reluctantly that the V. F. W. two major aims. First, we satire. "We realize that cannot last forever," he said, "so we're giving the F. F. W. two major aims. First, we intend to make it a live and forceful movement against treasury raiding by organized minorities, and second, we intend to stand against unnecessary war." lowan Sentenced for Wrongful Cashing of Old Age Pension Check CLINTON--The fact that two residents of this city have identical names caused an old age assistance warrant to fall into the hands of 58 year old Noah A. Hill who could not resist cashing it though it was clearly marked and was intended for 74 year old Noah A. Hill. As a result the younger man is serving a 30 day jail sentence after he pleaded guilty to a charge of larceny following the dismissal of a forgery charge. Because the names were identical, the forgery charge was of doubtful validity. This is one of several convictions for the wrongful cashing of assistance warrants in Iowa. In two instances a ten year term at Fort Madison and a one year jail sentence were meted out by Iowa courts. The younger Hill, who resided at 1246 South Ninth avenue claimed he received the check for 514 in general delivery mail and admitted cashing it later. The check had been remitted from the state office to another Noah A. Hill living at 4271-i Thirteenth avenue south, according to records in the case. When the latter missed his March 1 check he filed a report and a subsequent investigation by local officials and the old age assistance commission at Des Moines resulted in disclosure of the forged signature. Later the other Hill was arrested. The convicted man made restitution of the money he had wrongfully obtained and has paid the costs in tie case.

TAMA, (.»--Of 15 babies horn on the Mesquakie Indian reservation here since last November, not one is a boy. The Indian population has increased to 444 from 430 last November, only one death having occurred on the reservation. The Indians received their semi-annual annuity payment of $12.31 each this week. Results Given in Schools. Shucking his shirtsleeve upwar to the elbow, the young Lincol school student grinned as clinic phy sicians studied the 48 hour old r! action to the tuberculin test, abl searchlight of tuberculous infec tion. The physicians found .36 positiv reactors at the Lincoln schoo which means, they pointed out, tha these children have been infected a some through association with case of open tuberculosis, but i does not necessarily mean tha they have any active disease at th present time or that there is an cause of an.xiety. "But doesn't everyone have a lit tie tuberculosis?" asked the Lin coin school boy, after physicians re ported that a typical reaction ha indicated that tuberculosis was a. ready present in his body. "Absolutely not," replied. the physicia That Belief Out-iUodcd. "That outmoded belief is base upon a research in 1900 by Dr. Car Nageli, who found, after many au topsies, that nearly every adul showed signs of tuberculosis. Bu tuberculosis was so prevalent the that everyone had many opportun ities, during a lifetime, to becom infected. "But tests by the Iowa Tubercu losis association of more than 25,00 lowans with tuberculin in 1935 pro vide us with a newer, more accm ate yardstick of infection. In ou surveys, we have found that aboii one out of nine high school student and one out of three adults hav been infected. "A widening field of social cxper ience, not age, is probably respon sible for the increase in infectioi among- older persons. Your infectior has come from another person wh may be a relative, a schoolmate, o a neighbor. We must extend ou search to find this source of infec tion and obtain proper treatmen for him." Doesn't Mean Disease. Noting some alarm beginning t show in the youth's face, the phy sician smilingly added: "But a pos Hive reaction to the tuberculin in dicates only that you have been in fected. It does not indicate disease But to make sure, we'll use the x-ra_ to find if any damage has bcei done. Plenty of rest, good food and fresh air will stop tuberculosis be fore it even gets a start in you: case." These facts are included in a pam phlet "On Your Guard," which ha been prepared for Iowa parents and students so that they may knov how to safeguard themselves froir tuberculosis.

WASHINGTON, (.T)--An economist told a house committee Tuesday the Townsend old age pension organization had distorted, to deceive the public, statements he had given a congressional committee. The witness was Dr. Robert R. Doane, of New York, N. Y., who testified as the special house committee investigating the Townsend organization suddenly resumed its public hearings. He said he had been described falsely as indorsing the Townsnd plan. Assails Strategy. Doane said he was engaged oy Dr. F. E. Townsend, founder of the movement, and Robert E. Clements, then national secretary, to testify in February, 1935, before the house ways and means and the senate finance committees on the Townsend plan. He told the committees he testified at that time the plan would not work. "They are employing the. basic strategy of the communists and technocrats." he said. Reports Adversely. Doane said Dr. Townsend sought support for his movement from Frank A. Vandcrlip, former president of the National City bank of New York. He added he made a survey of the plan and submitted an adverse report to Vandcrlip. The witness said he had written Dr. Townsend requesting his name rot to be used as an advocate of the plan but the practice persisted and he received no reply to hig letter. More Liquor Stores Asked. DBS MOINES, (.T)--The Iowa Liquor commision reported Wednesday it has received proposals that additional liquor stores be established at several larger Iowa cities, including Davenport, Sioux City, Waterloo and Cedar Rapids. Guests From Kolfc. POPEJOY--Mr. and Mrs. Hoiko Thoren and son. Wayne, Rolfe, visited at the J. E. Carr and J. W. Fisher homes Monday. BACKSTAGE IN IOWA POLITICS $ $ $ # $ # * $ * Newspaper Editors' Trip to DCS Moines Appreciated by Politicians Who Save Lots of Traveling. By GEOKGE MILLS Iowa Daily 1'rcss Bureau Last week the mountain came to Iowa's political Mahomcts. And it saved the latter group plenty of gasoline money. Recent days have found many candidates for office traveling the state. Newspaper editors always have received the courtesy of a call from said hopefuls and often a handful of cards to distribute. When the Iowa press mountain moved to Des Moines for its annual convention last week, however, the politicians moved in too. Thus was many a mile of travel saved by the candidates, many a lick got in along both the Missouri and Minnesota borders on the same day. * *· * CONWAVS FKOBLEM To be railroad commissioner or to be postmaster, that was Mike Conway's question. Conway, who is chairman of the state railroad board, several weeks ago was reported to be the leading candidate for postmaster in his home town of Atlantic. The difficulty: He also kind of wanted to continue as railroad commissioner. The thing held fire until Friday when State Senator C. E. Malone of Cass county resigned his legislative post to accept the post- mastership in Atlantic. Some say Mike's decision was speeded by the approaching deadline for filing nomination papers. If Mike was not to run, somebody else would have to be qualified by Wednesday. * f * TWO JOBS Word has come clown the line that George Wilson will quit his state senatorship if he succeeds in winning the G. O. P. nomination for governor. Wilson is a "hold-over" senator from polk county with one more session left in his term. On the democratic side of the fence, two candidates whose present terms of office extend beyond Jan. 1 are in the field. Matt Cooncy. member of the state board of parole, is one and the other is Harry Dunlap. railroad commissioner. Cooney, in office until 1939, would be the democratic nominee for attorney general. Dunlap, also in power until 1939, is out for congress in the sixth. * 1: * DEMOCRATIC NEWS Democratic editors from over the state held a session all their own last week. Most tangible result of the conference: State central committee to provide a weekly column of political news to all papers. Releases will go to both democratic and republican papers, according to the dope. It is hoped to be able to handle the propaganda so indirectly that G. 0. P. editors will use it as well as the new deal brethren. POLITICAL KIDDLES Two democratic political riddles: What state central committceman is going to have a battle to hold his place in the state organization when the part holds its own "intramural" election next summer? And what candidate for congress is reported to be in the field solely to withdraw in an incumbent's favor if said incumbent does not succeed in winning the party's United States senatorial nomination ? Other States Sore at Iowa for Low Liquor Prices, Says Manley D.ES MOINES. t-W--Bernard E. Manley, Iowa liquor commission chairman, returned from a meeting of state liquor officials of Iowa, Nebraska. South Dakota and Minnesota at Aberdeen, S. Dak., re- ported "neighboring states arc sore over Iowa's liquor prices." "They declared," Manley said, "that our prices arc too low and that they couldn't hope to meet them under their systems for liquor sale. This, they complained, was pulling their business into Iowa." LAKE MILLS--Miss Bertha Hen. dcrsou of Chicago is here to attend the funeral of her brother, Arthur Henderson. TRUCK STRUCK BY MEAT TRAIN Ed Field, Driver, Escapes Without Injury at Hanlontown. HANLONTOWN--A truck oper- atcd by Ed Field, commercial trucker, was struck by an castbound, meat train at the crossing here at 9:30 o'clock Wednesday morning. Mr. Field, however, escaped without injury. Mr. Field was just about to cross the track when he heard the whistle of the oncoming train. He tried to turn the vehicle down the track, but the locomotive struck the front of the machine. Jury Recommends Man Held in S l a y i n g Be Held to Grand Jury KEITHSBURG, (.T)--A coroner's jury which investigated the fatal shooting Tuesday of Roger Johnson, 19, returned a verdict Tuesday night that Johnson came to his death by a gunshot wound "intentionally inflicted'* by John Collins, 39. carpenter superintendent on the Mississippi river lock project No. 1 at New Boston, tt recommended that Collins be held to the grand jury. Collins is being held in the Mercer county jail at Alcdo following his surrender a few hours after the shooting. At Alcdo State's Atty. Stanton H. Prcntiss stated that he planned to have the defendant arraigned before an Alcdo justice on a charge of murder and that the April term of the Mercer county grand jury likely will be recalled if Collins is bound over. That Collins had planned to enter an Ottawa. 111., sanitarium for treatment of a nervous disorder the day of the shooting, was revealed at the inquest conducted by Dr. V. A. Clanahan, Mercer county coroner. Visitors From Wisconsin. CORAVrrH---Mrs. Minnie Escher and Mrs. Eva Baumgartncr of Hum- brid. Wis., came Sunday for a few days' visit at the Albert Skelly home.
