FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 1943 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTfi 3 EXECUTED IN CAROLINA FEUD Woman Among Those Convicted of Murder COLUMBIA, S. Gar., P)--The tangled threads o£ an Edgelield county feud that caused five violent deaths were cut Friday as the state took the lives of two men «nd, for the first time, electrocuted · woman--all convicted of murder. Mrs. Sue Logue, 43 year old former school teacher, was the first to die. She was convicted along with her brother-in-law, George Logue, 55, and Clarence Bagwell, 34, of planning the murder of a neighbor, Davis W. Timnierman. * * * The electrocutions brought to eight the number of persons to die in the Edgetield county Logue- Timmerman Vendetta that began years ago when Mrs. Logue was a teacher in a rural school for which Timmerman was a trustee. First of the deaths occurred in September, 1940, w h e n M r s. Logue's husband, Wallace, was fatally shot in an altercation with Timmerman over a-calf. A year later Timmerman was killed by gunfire, and a few weeks after his death Sheriff Ward Day Allen, Deputy W. L. Clark and Fred DoYn, a sharecropper, died in a gun battle at the Logue farm, where the ofifcers had gone to serve warrants. * * * Bagwell was convicted of the actual slaying of Timmerman. The Logues were convicted of being accessories before the fact. Joe Frank Logue, a nephew of George and Sue Logue, was indicted for complicity in the slaying of Timmerman but has not yet gone to trial. The state charged at the trial that Sue Logue and George Logue planned Timmerman's death and that Bagwell agreed to do the killing for 5500. The state termed Sue Logue the "brains" behind the scheme to kill Timmerman.

British Navy Writes to Burlington, Wis., For Bunch of Lies BURLINGTON, Wis., /P)--The British are sending the plain old- fashioned lie to war, not by way of tlie propaganda ministry but the royal navy. It seems his majesty's gobs will sail for good yarns any old time, so the admiralty will see that they get them--and has come to this liars' capital for help. The idea is that a whopper is a whale of a pickup after brushes with axis planes and U-boats. To further the enterprise, Lieut. William M. Butt, R. N. V. R., lias enlisted the aid of the Burlington Liars' Club Inc., promoter of the famous New Year's eve contests in which the world champion prevaricator is crowned each year. The lieutenant, who gave his address as the Admiralty, Whitehall, London, requested that the club send him any lies it might have in book form. They will be used, he explained, in a series of radio programs being arranged for the amusement of men aboard ships of the royal navy. O. S. Hulett, club president, wrapepd up a batch of the club's choicest stories and mailed it to Lieutenant Butt, remarking expansively, "this one isn't Icnd- lease; it's on the house."

Napoleon Enjoyed "Throne;" Perhaps Mussolini Will Too ELECT BANK DIRECTORS LAWLER--Stockholders of the State bank of Lawler elected Dale and Lee Elwood, both of Cresco; Rumor Italy's Premier Is Re-Building Old Elba Windmill Palace By FREDERIC J. II A SKIN WASHINGTON. D. C.-- The report that Mussolini is having Na- roleon's villa, Windmill palace, on he island of Elba refurnished may be a false rumor that has its touch of irony, but it is a reminder that Yapoleon Bonaparate was in exile once before his final banishment to the island of St. Helena. His first exile came after the campaign in which Prussia and Austria joined Russia and defeated the .Little Corporal at Leipzig on Oct. 14 and 15 1813 Banishe - d to i-lba, he remained there until iilarch 1, 1S15, when he returned to France and prepared to set out on his final expedition of warfare send him which was eventually to St. Helena, where 5, 1821. * * * Not only does the story, true or raise, serve as a remainder of Napoleon's first exile, but it is also a reminder that Elba was during: the great warrior's stay there a kingdom of itself, one of the smallest ever established iu the world and certainly enjoying the shortest history. Moreover the exiled monarch held a comic opera court that kept the world's nerves on edge for 300 days. * * * Except for its deposits of iron renowned since they supplied several suits of armor for the Trojan war, Elba's chief claim to fame is the greatness thrust upon it as the only scrap of his empire the overthrown Napoleon could retain Elba is the largest of the Tuscan archipelago lying between Corsica and the northwest coast ,,l Italy, but nevertheless is not much larger than the District of Columbia. It is said that Napoleon once looked down upon its whole extent from a mountain height and commented dryly: "My island is somewhat small." Later he was master of larger territory, but still later became a prisoner on one of the most desolate places m the world. * * ¥ Elba, the imperial eagle caee, has a coastal outline sujireslmg- a spread eagle with one wing ?.. y cIi PP«l. 1" less than 100 square miles, the island contains three mountain ridges Their slopes are clothed with evergreen shrubs and dotted with white villas of wealthy Italians from tfie mainland, anil with weather-stained villages of approximately 25,000 Tuscan natives. * * * . The distance is only seven mile? trom the nearest point of Italy's mainland, Piombino. to Portoferraio, Elba's capital. Here live more than one-third of the island's inhabitants. The town's tall, yellow, rose, and tan houses terrace the horseshoe hills around the blue bay like seats in a stadium and shadowy stone stairways instead of streets climb the steep slopes. Across the sun-softened colors ot the houses and the crim- «n? °J V j£ let EC ' ilS '" llle tlnrb ° r spreads the gloom of industry, olaclc smoke from the blast furnaces for smelting iron ore which explains the Greek name for Elba- Soot Island. The main act of Elba's drama from island to kingdom was the onef musical comedy in whicli this obscure Mediterranean spot May 3. 1814. after V sfegi^of'fiv" months by British vessels, the surprised islanders learned that t- British sloop "Undaunted" had reached the harbor of Portoferraio. bringing them the honor of being a kingdom and a real live second-hand emperor to be their king. On May 4, Napoleon landed, and up went the flan which he had hastily designed for his miniature kingdom. The design on it was three bees on a broad orange stripe diagonally cross- Ing a while field. His throne was only a conch decorated with highly-colored paper roses. but (he show went on nevertheless. Receptions, balls and formal presantations at court put cloves on many Elbans for the first time in their lives. Because the new ruler had windmills torn down in preparinu (he villa to be his Elban headquarters, his subjects nick- ' named it Windmill Palace. ¥ * * Napoleon played so well the role of being a busy-bee king in his little bee kingdom that all Europe breathed a sigh of relief and forgot the bee in his bonnet. At his summer villa of San Martino, on a mountainside three miles southwest of Portoferraio, he masqueraded as a country gentleman where he kept several cows, a flock of chickens and a vegetable garden, but most likely was planning his next campaign. .,-..« ,ti.ii On the day after his arrival died May Napoleon set out ot explore the length and breadth of, the newly acquired, pocket-size kingdom, which is only 19 miles long and about five miles wide. Finding that digging for iron was Elba's only occupation, he endeavored to encourage agriculture, especially the growing of grapes for wine. :nd to this day there are old grapevines on the island which are pointed out as having been planted at the instigation of this short-lived Jdng of a short-lived kingdom. Napoleon also had roads built, marshes drained and villas constructed. He undertook colonization on a small scale, extending his empire to embrace two nearby small places. Pianosa and Falaiola. But the greatest improvement of all was that he gave Elba a basis for national pride. At last the island could boast of a flag, a court, a king, and all too soon for the Elbans, a past. Had Napoleon remained on the island of Elba, preferring that to carrying on another conquest, his place in history would have been tragic enough. But he struck once too often. After Waterloo he became a prisoner for life, not even a little king in a little kingdom. Subgroup Accepts 16 Unit Formula for Deferring Farm Labor WASHINGTON. W 5 }--A scnat agriculture subcommittee accepted Thursday u proposal by Maj Gen. Lewis B. Hcrshcy. selcctivi service director, that local drat boards be permitted to dcviati from the original 16-war-uni production formula set up for tin deferment of essential farm labor Senator Aiken (R-Vt.) said after a closed session ot the subcommittee that under the plan draft boards could defer a farm worker if his efforts resulted in the production of 10 war units o essential farm products "or even less in urgent cases." "If tile plan is f o 11 o w e t through," Aiken told reporters "tetters will be sent to the loca boards advising them that they art not bound to apply the formula rigidly in determining defer ments/' The IG-unil formula is so-cal!c because it permits the defcrrhen of a farm worker who tends 16 milk cows or docs an cquivalen amount of labor in Ihe production of grain, meat, poultry and othc foods listed as essential.
