W. Nebergall, head of the Iowa bureau of imet- tipation, Des Moines, told Hie Junior division of the Chamber of Commerce Monday night in Hotel Hanford. Public «cntinieiit in favor of oo- servance of law and co-operation with the officers are vital elements, continued Mr. Nebergall, who tor many years has been engaged in investigation of criminals. He emphasized that the United States is a great country-because it is a true democracy. And a part of a democracy is rule by the people. Consequently the people should do their part in cooperating for law observance. Cites Cost of Crime Observing the law. reporting j criminal acts and participating i n ] «ood citizenship are among such i factors, he said. He stressed ibat| voung men should be vitally con- Alfred Wojehick (above), 35, was charged with murder at Keene, N. II., in the "mistake" poison liquor deaths of a man and woman.

Holy Communion services will be held at St. John's Episcopal church at 7:30 and 9:30 o'clock Wednesday morning, the Rev. C. Burnett Whitehead announced Tuesday, but there will be no evening service. Members of the Beet Sugar Kc- finery Employes union No. 318B4 corned with law enforcement. Mr Nebergall emphasized that crime has reached appalling heights in this country where the people are the true rulers. He said there are now 150.000 in penal institutions and that J. Edgar Hoover, of the federal bureau of in- ve'stigation put the annual crime cost at 515.000,000,000. He said this meant a cost of 528,500 for every minute every day. In addition to the financial cost, there is the great cost of crime in blasted hopes and ruined lives. The state bureau, he explained, is set up to work with police departments, sheriffs, highway patrol and other enforcement agencies, especially where there are rings of criminals. Activities in the state bureau of investigation include the investi- MRS. KOTTMANN DIES AT HOME Rites to Be Held a I St. James Lutheran Church on Wednesday Mrs. Emma Kottmann. 76, died at her home. 541 Fifth street! southeast, at 5 o'clock Monday afternoon, following a shoit illness. She had resided in Mason City for the past 20 years. Mis. Kottman was born at Lena, 111.. Dec. 13. 1863, and was married to William Kottmann. Nov. 3. 1885. They resided at Sheffield and later at Thornton before moving to Mason City. Mrs. Kottmann FIRE IN BOXCAR ATTRACTS LARGE CROWD AT SITE Firemen Hindered in Work by Autoists, Low Water Pressure Hampered by swirling sleet and a i-oad-full of parked automobiles. Mat-on City firemen extinguished : ·d stubborn boxcar and pole fire I which started shortly a f t e r 8 , o'clock Monday evening. The blaze destroyed one of two empty boxcars which stood on the Peoples' Gas and Electric company's storage track, a quarter- mile north of Clear Lake junction. Cause ot the fire was undetermined. The blaze was first reported as a "bus fire," and the .salvage company answered the call. Combination company and pumper trucks were called into action later, the latter units being released after the blaze was under control. Poles Damaged More than 50 forty-foot poles, piled at the southeast side o£ the track, were damaged as heavy creosote coatings caught firo. | Firemen were forced to extend 1,100 feet of hose line from -A point near the 1. O. O. F. homes to the track, which connects plant No. B of the Mason City Brick and Tile company with the Mason City and Clear Lake railway and the Iowa State Brand creamery. Build Up Pressure A reduction to one and one-half inch hose lines from the combination company truck was necessary to build effective fire-fighting pressure. More than 300 automobiles, parked along both sides of Nineteenth street southwest as their owners watched the fire, hindered the arrival ot the combination company and pumper units. Mrs. Helen Fortcscue Reynolds flew to Reno, Nov., from New York to establish residence prior to seeking a divorce from Julian L. Reynolds, tobacco tin- toil manufacturer. .She declined to comment on her husband's statement that arrangements hail been made for her to seek a "friendly" divorce.
