The Hancock county group made a fast trip to Milbank, 800 miles, in record time Friday. ; Identification of Markword was "made 'by' comparison of fingerprints, scars and by a cowgirl tatooed on the arm of the man. It was known Markword 'bore a similar tatooed figure. . Iowa state agents made the trip to examine the body, descriptions of which led them to believe it was that of Markword--one o£ three members of the Thomas J.

Statehouse Highlights DES MOINES, (ff)--Already weary of days of argument and nights of political dickering, a number of Iowa lawmakers have their sights set for adjournment some time next month. ~ The senate has voted to adjourn April 13--which might mean a few weeks later--and the house has a small group urging night sessions in order to clear the chamber's calendar of a flood of bills. SLOW--But the chances of early adjournment, most legislators agree, aren't so good as they might be. Scores of lawmaking problems were still hanging fire. Appropriations committees of t h e two houses have not yet completed action on the biennial budget bill. Still untouched by the assembly were proposes for setting up a state welfare department, a truck usage tax measure to raise farm- to-market road funds, possible reenactment of the sales tax, suggested liquor and beer law changes, and'a pile o£ other bills tossed into the mill this week. Pioneer of Iowa David C. IMott, oldtime Iowa newspaperman and .legislator, prepares invitations for the coming session of the Pioneer Lawmakers association. Mr. Mott, the father of Frank Mott, director of the school of jiur- nalism at the University of Iowa, lias been associate editor of the Iowa Annals, historical publication, and secretary of the Pioneer Lawmakers association for 18 years. He is 79 years old. (Iowa Daily Press Photo.) ACTION ON BILLS IN STATE LEGISLATURE SHEEL RITES HELD AT GYM Luther Professor Head of Chemistry Department 46 Years.

Hoff, with burial in the Lutheran cemetery. Professor Sheel was born in St. Louis, Mo., and attended Luther college as a student in 1874 and 1875. He received a B. A. degree at Northern Indiana "normal schDOl, and taught four years at Willmar, Minn., returning to Luther college in 1889, to teach chemistry. From 1904 to 1911 he was curator of the museum. In 1895 he was married to Miss Lydia E. Jendc, who survives. Three sons and a daughter also survive, Otto, Carl, Sigurd and Mrs. Orrin Amundsen, all of Decorah. A brother, John Sheel, of Portland, Ore., also survives. DES MOINES, (fP--Bills in the Iowa legislature: Introduced in senate: S. F. 379--By social security TIRED--One of the younger senators said he was tired of i all and almost ready to quit. "I wouldn't have believed grown men could act like they do i£ I hadn't came here and seen it with | my own eyes," he said. 'The other day we spent the whole morning in a crying session on tl^e liquor profits bill. What was said on the floor had little or nothing to do with the bill itself, [f we have to get the crying towels out again I'm going to leave for the day." icr part on the. program ·eorge Bonacker reviewed per on "English As She Is Spoke."

MANLY--Mrs. Tillie Peshalc and Mrs. Ella Sorenson entertained the Naomi circle at the I. O. O. F. hall Friday evening. ROILED--A legislative old timer was equally upset. lawmaker's life isn't He says a what it's cracked up to be. All work and worry and nothing accomplished, lie complains. "You go to sessions in the morning and then sit in conimittee rooms all afternoon," he said. "At night, either you have to show some of your constituents a good time or get together with some ol the boys at a hotel room to fix the bills your for or against. My health won't stand it another session." FEVEIl--But while legislative fretfulness is becoming apparent, seasoned observers agree it's nothing to what it will be a couple of weeks from now. With sunny weather outside and dull arguments over how to spend t h e state's money going on inside, they claim, the lawrhakers will get really short tempered. And by that time, a few lawmakers say, the throat cutting will really begin. Senators and representatives who have stepped over the line to oppose pet principles of powerful groups, they say, will find their own bills killed before they start. Where the session started in peace y and harmony, it appears, it may end up with each lawmaker having a number o£ bitter enemies among his co-workers. Meeting Held to Form P. T. A.
