When senators reached their desks they found a mimeographed plea from the state .Farm Bureau federation that the bill to bar tax aid for the organizations be defeated. .···": The statement said Farm Bureau membership "includes the most progressive ' of Iowa's farmers," and that the organization has "nearly 50,000 members in Iowa giving service to 40D, people in constructive educational work." Would Hurt Clubs.: The Farm Bureau statement opened with a declaration that enactment of Mason's bill would "practically eliminate 4-H club and women's work" as now carried on in connection with Farm Bureau activities. "There are 80,050 farm women taking advantage of this work in Iowa, and 25,000 farm boys .and girls are 4-H members and not limited to Farm Bureau members," the statement said. "The 4-H work offsets some of , the educational handicaps of many rural boys and girls. Club boys and girls are not found in. penal institutions. "The Farm Bureau can and will go on without county aid. Perhaps they can become more militant and be less restricted in some phases" of their work: without public funds. They believe, however, that those things most worthwhile will be attained through education. It is to the interest of not only farm folks; but of the state and n'alion that education in its broadest sense be promoted." Building: and Loan. The house passed and sent to the senate a measure sppnsored by .·Representative B. B. Hickenlooper (R) of Cedar Hapids, and others, to bring up to date regulations affecting the operation of building and loan associations. The Linn county lawmaker explained that present regulations 'are "antiquated" and that prevailing interest rates are "too high, almost to the point of precluding the associations from the loaning market. It passed 94 to 2. Just after this action by the house it received a series ol series of amendatory and corrective measures from its committee on banks ad banking. State Bank Trusts. One provides for the manner of handling and terminating state bank trusts created as a part of the plan of bank reorganization; ·another would permit credit' unions to appeal to the state executive council from adverse recommendations ' by the state superintendent on plans for organization; a third provides that after January I, 1938, no state bank officer, director or stockholder may be connected with a separate firm dealing essentially with securities, and the fourth would .eliminate discrimination against common stock of state hanks issued prioi to^Dec 1, 1933, ^and to place all "'· stock on an assessment parity' · - Thej-social security* Committee introduced , companion measures to those in the senate creating a state department of social welfare to -aid needy children, arid to appropriate-more than $1,300,000 under the direction of a board of .five. ' ' ' .' / . ; ' . '" :, '· v ' · ' I The committee! on :militavy affairs entered .bills providing for payment of '$150 a year .by the state .bonus board to educate children, o£ World '.war : veterans: Conservation -Commission. With plans'under way: in t the house to., re-write conservation commission i regulations in. keeping with Tuesday's supreme court decisions, Rep. W. A. Yager (D) of Spirit Lake, withdrew his bill to fix.the commission personnel at three full: time members. Though social security legislation was. on the house' calendar for consideration,' that chamber deferred action deciding to wait until next-week when ; the house committee handling these -problems will' present a co-ordinated bill embodying salient points of a number of bills now pending. The house also decided it would on Monday again hear protests to a bill providing 'for ·elimination o£ all state bank service 1 charges on checks.' A hearing was held last week, it was explained, but organized opponents to the plan failed to appear and later asked for further consideration. Would Probe: White . -^ as Member of Iowa Board of Control DES MOINES, (£)--A resolution on the Iowa senate file Wednesday called for an investigation of "the'official acts and conduct at Harry C. White a s ' a member of- the board of control." ' The proposal, filed by Senator E. I. Mason (D) of Brooklyn, said "charges showing gross neglect and mismanagement are being made as against the said H. C. White in connection with the juvenile department of the board of control." PUBLIC INVITED Mason City residents have been invited to attend all or part o£ .the North Central Teachers' program o£ lectures, music and . round tables - on Thursday and Friday. Chairman C. L. McDowell ol Eagle Grove-says there is a 50 cent admission charge for nonmembers of the association in attendance at any one of the four 'general programs--Thursday and Friday evenings and Friday and Saturday forenoons.

ROYAL FAMILY TO AID EDWARD British Government Not to Pay. Pension to Duke of Windsor. LONDON, (fP)--The British government will not pay a pension to the Duke of Windsor, presentation of King George VI's civil list message disclosed Tuesday. Instead,- the royal family, from its own pockets, will make an allowance to former King Edward VIII. : There was no mention of the Duke of "Windsor in the message, presented in the house of commons. It tui'ned over to commons the hereditary revenues from the Duchy of Cornwall, formerly held by Edward. It asked in return that commons make provisions for certain members of the royal family. Those for whom provisions were requested were the queen, the children of the royal couple and the Duke of Gloucester. AUNT MET By Robert Quillen "I don't stay sleepy long. I either lay down and get a nap or else a loud-speaker truck comes along- and makes me mad enough to pep me up." JUSTICE IN RAP AT GOMPLAINERS McReynolds Says Losers in Supreme Court Should · Be Good Sports. WASHINGTON, (^--Outspoken criticisms by Justice James C. McReynolds of persons who complain about adverse court decisions brought debate Wednesday over the Roosevelt judiciary bill to a new peak. The 75 year old supreme court justice, consistent opponent of administration legislation, said Tuesday night at a banquet of his' college Iratei-nity, Phi Delta Theta: "The evidence of good sportsmanship is that a man who has had a chance t o , present a fair case to a fair tribunal must be a good sport and accept the outcome," Some attorneys after losing a case, he said, complain that the court which heard-it was unfair. ' Thousands of Things. "Thousands and thousands of things come before the courts that are settled to general satisfaction," he said. "If -things come that are not settled to the satisfaction of all, put yourself in place of the courts and see if you 1 could have done better. "Even in Christianity itself we have acrimonious discussions. Congregation |A' says it will not go with congregation 'B.' But if the great congregation says it has a great underlying purpose, there is success." i . His impromptu speech contained the first indirect vefer- ^nces io the president's reorgani- jzation program by any of the I nine justices. He did not mention 'by name Mr. Roosevelt's proposal to enlarge the bench if justices over 70 .do not retire. Guests Are Surprised. The speech of Justice McReynolds, who has voted against 14 neiv deal laws and supported two, surprised the 125 dinner guests. At former banquets he had discussed only fraternity affairs. It also broke precedent in that supreme court justices for years have not talked about the court off the bench. Declaring the American government is the most, complicated since the beginning of time, McReynolds said: "Without that spirit o£ justice," he said, "and without haying an arbiter to settle your disputes, this government cannot function. "To manage all of its divergent interests and do it intelligently from Washington is impossible. The man who can do it has not been born. . ; ,-Attend to .Own Affairs. .'· "Vfe started'under buy constitu-r ifoh with the notion that .each community must attend to its own affairs and that there would be left to the 'federal government only certain large things. "Now with extraordinary means of communication, we have very enlarged difficulties that somehow we must overcome. All these difficulties make for friction. "But we must have citizens who can say they will put up with temporary inconvenience. We must wake up the people to the wonderful things for them in the past and to what can be done for them in the future. "We must awaken the citizens to their obligations, rather than their so-called rights." Connally Sits Near. Near him sat Senator Connally (D-Texas), a fraternity brother and a leader of the president's opponents. After outlining the constitution's division of duties among the legislative, judicial and executive branches, Justice McReynolds recited his oath of office to mete justice to rich and poor alike. "Without that spirit of justice," he said, "and without having an arbiter to settle your disputes, this government cannot function, "You must remember that courts do not appoint their own members. They are not responsible for their membership. If there be. derelicts, they are not responsible. The constitution delegated that responsibility to, another." Commended by Burke. Chairman Ashurst (D-Ariz) of the senate judiciary committee now holding hearings refused to comment publicly on Justice He- Reynolds' speech, but Senator Burke (D-Nebr.) remarked that the justice's statement was "very well put and very appropriate at this time." Senator Logan (D-Ky.) said the justice was "entirely within his rights." Similar cbment was made by Senator Hatch {D-N. Mex.). .Senator Minton (D-Ind.), a fraternity brother of the justice, commented that he had never regarded the supreme court as an "umpire"--but rather one of the coordinate branches of government and therefore a member of the team. MEAT DEALERS SEE NEW CUTS More Than 300 Watch Max · Cullen Demonstrate Butcher's Art. More than 300 retail meat dealers, representing an area extending to Storm Lake and Spencer on the west, Mankato, Minn., on the north, Decorah to the east and Marshalltown on the south, gathr ered in the north dining room at the Hotel Hanford Tuesday evening to watch Max O. Cullen, national authority, demonstrate the latest innovation in preparing cuts of beef, lamb and pork. c The forty communities, including Mason City, represented at the demonstration, set a new record for attendance for similar meetings in Iowa and Minnesota, Mr. Cullen said. O. W. Wallmo, division sales manager for Jacob E. Decker and Sons packing .plant here, was in charge of arrangements for the gathering. A, lunch featmmg .Decker;: products concluded the evening's ·. progiam. . Mr.. Culleri, merchandising specialist for the national livestock and meat board, went through a series of deft manipulations with knife and meat saw, transforming the less salable portions of meat cuts into attractive morsels, readily preparable for table use. The few laymen in attendance were left with the feeling that Mr. Cullen had but to wave his knife two or three times to transform a choice tee-bone steak into a tasty looking lamb chop. Whole carcasses of beef, lamb and pork used in Mr. Culien's operations were furnished by the Decker packing plant. FORMER BRITISH SECRETARY DIES Heart Attack' Fatal to Sir Austin Chamberlain, 73 Years Old. LONDON, () -- Sir Austen Chamberlain, 73. former British foreign secretary, died Tuesday night of a heart attack in his London home. S i r Austen held the foreign portfolio from 1924 to 1929 in t h e s e c o n d Stanley Baldwin g o v e r n - ment. As f o r e i g n CHAMBERLAIN secretary, h e negotiated the treaty of Locarno. For this work the late King George V conferred on him the highest honor in the gift of -the crown--a Knighthood of the Garter. He was ,73 years old. Accorded Attentive Ear. Sir'Austen was one of the elder statesmen in the house of commons, seldom heard except in debates on outstanding questions when he always was accorded an attentive ear by his fellow legislators. He was a son of the famous Joseph Chamberlain and a half brother of Neville Chamberlain, chancellor of the exchequer. Sir Austen spoke in the debates leading to the British rearmament program and at times did not hesitate to criticize his former colleagues in the government. He appeared in the house of commons last week, but did not take part in the debate. He first entered the House 45 years ago and first entered the government as a junior minister in 1895. His death came unexpectedly after illness last night caused him to forego a dinner engagement. He suffered from lumbago recently but his illness was not then considered serious. // 'Your Next Door Neighbors'^! » 3 * i * " I DAILY KGLC 11:10 a. m.
