TWO ' the may be released after further \ I qustioning. ' Hoover said Karpis had been un' der surveillance by federal agents i for two or three days before his cap. , s ture. ; Quite a Fisherman. "Karpis was quite a fisherman i ana a hunter," Hoover said. "He ' " was in and out of New Orleans. Notwithstanding plastic surgery on his face he was easily recognizable I from his photograph. He had two I scars on his ears, apparently for the purpose of lifting his face, and a cut into the lobe of each ear. but he looks exactly like his picture. i "When we had definite information he was in New Orleans, we surrounded the apartment house in which he lived with Hunter "We nabbed the three after they had entered their car. There was a rifle in the hack seat but Karpis or Hunter didn't have a chance to reach for it. Neither carried pistols. Thousands at Scene. "Within three minutes after their arrest, there were more than a thousand people swarmed around Karpis' car and the apartment Asked Karpis 1 reaction when he 1 was told to throw up his hands, Hoover said: "He was so damned scared he couldn't talk." 1 Hoover said the department was "glad to take him alive" and that capture of the No. 1 bad man "rings down the curtain on all the principals in the Barker-Karpis mob." . ., . Don't Kate Them. When asked whether Harry Campbell, fugitive in the Edward 1 G. Bremer kidnaping and pal of Karpis, now would be designated as public enemy No. 1, Hoover said: · "We don't give them any rating in the federal bureau of investigation. They are all yellow rats to us. That was proved last night." . The big liner was landed near the 109th Aero Squadron headquarters (National Guard) and hastily backed inside, heavily armed federal agents, carrying almost every conceivable kind of firearm took complete charge of the place. Karpis was transported from the airport in a big sedan containing besides the driver four federal agents who guarded the outlaw with machine guns. Over 13 Hours. Karpis either had been in the air or shackled inside the plane for more than 12 hours. He walked unsteadily from the plane to the automobile which had been backed flush against the airliner inside the hangar. ·At the federal building the outlaw was hustled from the car at -- a. brisk half trot with spectators getting scarcely a glimpse of him. The arrival at the airport and the subsequent handling of the desperado was marked by great speed "and efficiency. The big liner whirled :in from the south, circled'the air- jport'-once, banked* into : the stiff "·wind and glided to ..a smooth land- 1 tog, and was taxied right up to the entrance to the large air squadron hangar. Doors Slide Open. The huge doors slid open and before anyone had left the plane it was rolled inside. i Photographers who had taken ' vantage points about the building previously had been ordered outside along with reporters and hangar attendants. The car useri to transport the prisoner to the federal building already was in the hangar " Just a few minutes were required to transfer Karpis and his body' guard to the machine which then sped away preceded by two carloads of armed agents and trailed by at least five other machines. ·SAYS'HE AIDED KAKPIS AND GANG TO ESCAPE CLEVELAND, 15")--John Zetzer 35, said Saturday at Port Clinton ·Ohio, where he operates a marine garage, that he unwittingly aided Alvin Karpis and two companions by flying them to Hot Springs, Ark. ·ana Tulsa, Okla., a few weeks after a sensational 546,000 mail train rob- ,bery at Garretsville, Ohio, last Nov 7. ... Zetzer's description of his passes gers indicated one was John Brock 34, of Tulsa, in custody here on , 'mail robbery charges and from * whom federal authorities, declining the use of their names, intimated ^they obtained information which .resulted in the capture of Karpis ind Fred Unter at New Orleans. ·· Immediately after the machine :gun train holdup, in which $34,000 in currency and §12,000 in securities was obtained, postal inspectors ·launched an investigation ia which IZetzer's flight was a link. - Grover (Burrhead) Keady of .Tulsa is being held here in connec- ·tion with the robbery. He was the !first placed under arrest, having -been brought from Oklahoma Feb 26. MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MAY 2 ·1936 STATE AIR BOARD TO HEAR TUCKER ·Will Ask Him to Explain Why Pole at Airport Is Not Lighted Nights. DES MOINES, tS--Frew A. : ,Tucker, who erected a 24 foot pole just off the runway at Iowa City .airport to keep transcontinenta planes from flying too low over his farm, will be summoned to appear before the state aeronautics commission May 12. : Adjutant General Charles Grab) "secretary of the aeronautics com- 'mission, said Tucker will be asked to explain why the pole is not lighted at night, in line with state and .federal air laws on the illumination f)t obstacles.

Big Bulletin Board . Announces Decision of Contest Judges IOWA CITY, UK--Most of the ihrills and disappointments of the state high school music contest occurred in front of a 15 foot bulletin board near the Memorial Union, where all results were posted as soon as judges cast their ballots. Every notice brought cheers and moans from the crowds of contestants. Eldora high school won the only superior award for boys' glee clubs. Sldora was superior in class B. No other superior places were awarded n the other classes. Petit Jurors Excused Extra Day; Requested to Report on Tuesday Judge M. F. Edwards, presiding at the April term of district court here, late Friday requested that jetit jurors under summons fo_r :rial duty during the term be noti- ied to report at the courthouse at I o'clock Tuesday morning, May 5, instead of on Monday morning as jreviously ordered. SENATORS GO ON WITH TAX STUDY r orego Saturday Recess to Hear Testimony From Businessmen. WASHINGTON, UP)--Forego ing the usual Saturday recess to speed public hearings on the tax program, ;he senate finance committee was told by Senator Bailey (D., N. Car.) :hat the present tax structure would raise enough revenue to balance the federal budget when national income, returns to normal. His view was expressed in the midst of testimony by a spokesman :or the Manufacturers association of Connecticut, opposing new taxes without a'balanced budget. Among other developments: President Roosevelt signed 27 bills of a secondary nature. One of :hem extended the time for the irade commission to investigate and report on agricultural income and economic condition of the farmer. Moley Gets Invitation. The president invited Raymond Moley, his former assistant secretary of state, who has been critical of some recent new deal proposals, ;o accompany frim on a week-end cruise. Senator Arthur Vandenberg of Michigan reiterated, to newswmen that "I have not sought the nomination (republican presidential) and shall not do so." Although many witnesses were waiting to testify at the senate tax hearing, democratic leaders still ex- presed confidence that congress would dispose of the measure--and the president's request for a $1,500,000,000 relief appropriation--in time to adjourn early in June. There were strong indications tha: other legislation, including the pending ship subsidy and pure food anc drug bills, might be set aside if they threatened to delay adjournment. New Graduated Tax. The tax bill, involving among oth er provisions a new type of gradu ated tax on corporation income hat gone through the house earlier in the week. Members of the senate fi nanc committee, which is conduct ing the present hearings on it, are seeking ways to boost its revenue yield by $337,000,000. Treasury, experts had said i 1 would fall that far short of President Roosevelt's request. Secretary Morgenthau requested the commit tee to consider Mr. P.oosevelt's sug gestion for temporary processing taxes. He also forecast the federa deficit for this fiscal year would reach $5,966,000,000. Big Navy Bill Passes. Though both senate and house were in recess Saturday, advocates of the biggest peace time navy ap propriation made plans for quick senate action on it. The $531,068, 707 measure, carrying also a Condi tional authorization -for building two big battleships, passed thi house Friday. Funeral Services for Father John Stuart Planned at Waukon WAUKON, (30--Funeral services will be held at St. Patrick's church here Monday at 9 a. m. for the Very Rev. John C. Stuart, 59, pastor of the church and former president of Columbia college of Dubuque. Monsignor Stuart died unexpectedly late Friday of heart disease while visiting at the home of his friend, the Rev. P. H. McNamara, at Lycurgus. He had been in ill health for several months. MAHAN HEABIN6 "WANTED" LIST Federal Agents Have Several Times Been Close to Kidnap Suspect. WASHINGTON, UP) -- William Mahan moved to the top of the federal agents' "wanted" list Saturday as Alvin Karpis, "public enemy number one," awaited arraignment for one of four major crimes charged against him. Justice department officials said that several times recently they have been close to Mahan, described as "the remaining principal" in the kidnaping of George Weyerhaeuser, of Tacoma, Wash. The net ..may close any day, they said. The bloody saga of the Barker- Karpis gang drew toward a close with the arrest of the 27 year old Karpis in New Orleans Friday night. Harry Campbell, who has shuttled across the country with Karpis for the past two years, is the last of the gang still at large. Robinson Still Sought. Another man still hunted as a' kidnaper is Thomas H. Robinson, Jr. wanted for the abduction of Mrs. Berry V. Stoll in Louisville, Ky. Crimes for which Karpis may stand trial are: The $200,000 kidnaping of Edward G. Bremer, St. Paul banker, on Jan. 17, 1934. Arthur "Doc" Barker, Volney Davis, and other leaders of the mob are serving _A1- catraz sentences for this crime. Hoover says Karpis has been "positively identified"' as the man who purchased flashlights used in ransom negotiations. The ,5100,000 kidnaping of William A. Hamm, Jr., St. Paul brewer, on June 15, 1933. Mail Train Bobber. The 546,000 mail train robbery at Garrettsville, Ohio, last November. Harry Campbell and Fred Hunter, the latter captured with Karpis, are also wanted for this crime. The slaying of Sheriff C. R. Kelley of West Plains, Mo. For J. Edgar Hoover, director of the federal bureau of investigation who personally led the squad of agents at New Orleans," the Karpis arrest had an element of sweet re- irenge. Hoover was the object of a death hreat note supposed to have come :rom Karpis last summer. Hoover said then he had assured himself :hat the "public enemy number one" was the author of the threat. Hoover's First Arrest. The capture was Hoover's first Arrest. He testified before the senate appropriations committee recently that he had never made an arrest, because when he was an investigator, agents were not empowered to make .them. 1 The fact that Karpis was taken alive also recalled Hoover's testimony that agents were instructed to shoot "only for self-defense." When Senator McKellar (D.- Tenn.) asked if F. B. I. men were sent out to "shoot to kill," Hoover replied: "No sir. tinder no circumstances; no such orders have ever been issued by the attorney general or by me." No Reward Comment. The justice department had "no comment" on the question who, if anyone, .would share in the 55,000 reward offered by Attorney General Cummings recently for "information leading to the arrest" of Karpis.- The postoffice inspection service, seeking Karpis for the Garretsville train robbery, had offered an additional $2,000. Hoover considered the Barker- Karpis gang, at its height, "one of the most dangerous in the country." Stace the "mob" that- hovered around old Kate "Ma" Barker turned from the game of bank robbery to kidnaping in 1933, seven ringleaders have died;, the rest--except lone Harry Campbell--are in jail. The dead include "Ma" Barker and her favorite son, Fred, killed when they attempted to "shoot it out" with federal agents at Okla- waha, Fla., in January of 1934. This used to -ne a wild lawless country in the early days, with outlaws and Indians who killed about one-tenth as many people as die now in automobile accidents.--Fairbury, Kansas Journal. NEW NAME GIVEN BY SUSPECT HERE Confessed Auto Thief Says He was One of Five in Jail Break. Still claiming his home as Perth Amboy, N. J., an unidentified man who gave the name of Jack Gibbs, Madison, Wia, when first arrested near Cresco Thursday on a charge of car theft, and who later changed his name to Joe Vargo, changed his name for the third time Saturday when officers questioned him at the Cerro Gordo county jail. The man who at one time was believed to have been the companion of Roscoe Barton, Davenport, slayer of Oran H. Pape, Iowa State highway patrolman, near Muscatine, now maintains -he. is John Staryak, one of five men who broke jail at Carlinville, 111., April 24. Local deputies telephoned to the sheriff of Carlinville giving the, description of the man held here and the sheriff stated .the description checked with the leader of that jail break. Will Not Waive. Staryak, alias Gibbs or Vargo, state'd be will not waive extradition to the state of Illinois, however. He told local officers -he would admit nothing and would sign nothing. He has admitted the theft of the J- E. Decker automobile Thursday morning, however. When the five men broke jail at Carlinville, they stole a machine gun and pistols and automobile, according to the police bulletin received at the local sheriff's office Saturday morning. According to Staryak they motored to Chicago, where he left the other four and came via train to Mason City. Companions in Stick-up. The same car stolen at Cariinville and a machine gun were used in the stick-up of an oil station at Fergus Falls, Minn., Friday night, according to word, received here at the sheriff's office Saturday.. Only two men were reported on that job, however. Staryak has admitted serving time in Colorado, Texas, and Alcatraz. Island for bootlegging jn the army. Fingerprints of Staryak had not been returned here yet Saturday, however, and his record had not been completely checked by local authorities. Credit for Staryak's capture goes to Sheriff A. T. Pederson, Cresco, who drove to Old Town, near Lime Springs, a distance of 15 miles, in less than 15 minutes when he heard a man had -abandoned a car near there. With a. deputy, Sheriff Pederson trailed Staryak from farm house to farm house until he finally cornered him in .a barn. Attend Pape Funeral. Sheriff J. M. 'Robertson, Iowa State Highway · Patrolmen · John. Smith and Edgar Faber, and Staie Motor Vehicle Inspector J. J. Burnett left for Dubuque Saturday to attend the funeral services of'Pape. Glen Schmidt, state bureau of investigation chief, Des Moines, reported a check showed there is no fingerprint record of Joe Vargo; 23, suspected bandit confederate of Barton held in the Cerro Gordo county jail here, on file with the bureau. The Mason City officers failed to identify Vargo as the bandit who helped Barton hold up oil stations at Lawler. Vargo's picture and description have been sent to Primghar by officers in an effort to identify him as one of the bandits who held up a service station there. AUTO USED BY BARTON WAS NOT HOLDUP CAB NEW HAMPTON--The auto in which Roscoe E. Barton, 23, Davenport, bandit, was killed by State Patrolman Oran H. Pape, was not the same one that was used in the holdup of the C. J. McKone filling station at Lawler last Sunday evening according to Chickasaw County Sheriff George'C. Murray. The death car was a 4 door Sedan with a trailer hitch while the one used in the Lawler robbery was a 2 door sedan of the same make and model but had a built-in trunk. Barton had 527 in cash, 11 checks totaling $50 that were made out to C. J. McKone. Lawler. The checks were returned to McKone Friday by Sheriff Murray. The officers found a sales slip from a J. C. Penney store believed to be in this section of the state for a new suit of clothes which he was wearing when killed. The sales ' slip was dated April 27. A map of Iowa was found in Barton's auto. The highway west of Lawler was marked to two miles, then turned south toward Sumner and then east on highway 93. After reaching St. Lucas the map was not marked. Officers believe that Barton's companion is at large in the other auto. GOVERNMENT AND BUSINESS STUDY Problem of What to Do About Unemployed Figures in News of Week. By THE ASSOCIATED PEBSS Government and business studied the problem of what to do about the unemployed the past week. The Chamber of Commerce of the United States, assembled in Washington, announced its own national job survey. For the government, Secretary Roper of the commerce department advanced a program through which he said business could absorb more of the jobless. Certain of the businessmen retorted that they had, done and were doing, their part; but Harper Sibley, chamber president, asked for peace through a co-operative alliance between government and business. Cushioning attacks of the Roosevelt administration was Sibley's statement: "This is 'not an issue that can be settled by hurling partisan invective or making exaggerated accusations, or unleashing- political rancor and antagonism." Blackshirt Victory. The Italian juggernaut of war rolled on toward Addis Ababa, Ethiopia's capital, to the joy of Rome; but, singularly, attention in Europe centered not on the success of Premier Mussolini's arms. Tension between Great Britain and Italy relaxed, possibly because Downing street knew the expense of colonization campaigns. Japan had discovered it in Manchoukuo. Europe regarded the trouble spots as Berlin and Vienna. A nation's internal difficulties not infrequently cause explosions outside. Prince von Starhemberg, . the powerful Austrian fascist, was at odds with other factions of the Schuschnigg regime over his refusal to disband lis home guard. Commentators re- jarded the appointment of Air Minister Herman Goering, instead of Seichsbank President Hjalmar Schacht, as "economic dictator" of Germany as evidence of discord within the reich's official family. The sharp leftist gains in last Sunday's French parliamentary elections had been discounted in advance. French foreign policy may turn slightly more pro-league after this Sunday's runoff elections. In Cairo occurred a death of international significance. Crown Prince Farouk succeeded to the throne Of the Pharoahs under a re gency on the death of King Fuad-of Albanian, not Egyptian, descent, and the first king of Egypt since the days of the Ptolemies. The deceased monarch since 1G17 had been a protecting buffer for Britain's Suez and Sudan holdings. Time Vc. Taxes. Official Washington's week was devoted in part to a congressional race against the deadline of the June political conventions. Even as the chamber of commerce heard its members inveigh against government spending and administration tax policies, the house passed and sent to the senate the new tax bill imposing graduated levies on undistributed corporation surpluses'. Secretary Morgenthau of the treasury startled the senate finance committee by forecasting the biggest treasury deficit in peacetime history--$5,966,000,000--for the fiscal year ending June 30. Part of this, he stressed, was due to prepayment of the soldiers' bonus. He urged re-enactment of the AAA processing taxes as a temporary measure, but the senate gave evidence of a determination to take the bit in its teeth by advancing other tax plans. Of no small moment was a house move to enact the Frazier-Lemke bill for farm mortgage refinancing. Troubling the capital and the anthracite industry was the threat of a tieup affecting more than 100,000 workers through failure of operators and miners' representatives to see eye to eye on an agreement to replace the one which expired last Thursday. As concrete evidence of the problem before both government and business, unemployed groups demonstrated in Trenton, N. J., and St Louis, and the national industrial conference board announced those without jobs numbered 9,649,000 in March. This was a 3.9 per cent drop from March, 1935. Primary Elections. The Massachusetts and Pennsylvania presidential preference primaries provided ammunition for partisans of the president and Gov. Alf M. Landon of Kansas. The president's heavy vote in the Keystone state, one Of six ne did not carry in November, 1932, was of more interest to his supporters than his victory over Col. Henry Breckinridge in the contest for delegates. Landon adherents characterized the writein Massachusetts vote as his first test of popularity in the industrial east. Senator Borah of Idaho was unopposed in Pennsylvania, nor did 'Mr. Roosevelt have opposition in Massachusetts. The political week was punctuated by a democratic-republican tiff over AAA payments and the tariff, the senate formally ordering data on benefits to growers under the invalidated act and on corporations benefiting from tariffs. Senator Dickinson, Iowa republican, told his chamber that the Roosevelt "scarcity" program had forced poor persons to eat' 100,000,000 pounds of dog food annually while democrats replied derisively. In Los Angeles, a congressional subcommittee began gathering data on money raising methods used by the Townsend old age pension organization amid a stiffening factional fight in the movement. Northwest Twister. Four persons were killed and 50 injured in a tornado which swept through northwest Iowa and southern Minnesota. Eleven died in the crash of a German military plane near Neu- Ulm, Bavaria. Harry Weiss, charged with helping abduct Paul Wendel, the attorney who was "kidnaped" and "confessed" to the Lindbergh abduction, attempted suicide in the Brooklyn, N. Y., city prison. A guard shot Joseph Bowers, mail robber, on rocky Alcatraz island in San Francisco bay in the first attempt at escape since the island became a federal prison. The United States fleet began a six weeks' test of fitness in grand maneuvers in the Pacific. G-Mcn Get Karpis. G-Men, heroes to small boys the country over, captured Alvin Karpis, bank robber and kidnaper, in a Woodless coup at New Orleans. Only one of his henchmen, Harry Campbell, remained at large. May day, used annually for demonstrations by leftists elements, was marked by orderly parades in both Occident and Orient. Arturo Toscanini closed 11 years as director of the New York Philharmonic-Symphony society at a tumultuous final concert in Carnegie hall. Two Negroes Slain. Two Negroes were slain by mobs at Lepanto, Ark., and Colbert, Ga., and national guardsmen frustrated a third killing in Huntsville, Ala. Representative Marion Zioncheck, the national capital's unofficial bell ringer, was tagged again for speeding and married Rubye Louise Nix, blond and pretty PWA stenographer. Died: Charles K. McClatchy, publisher; Dr. John Ridlon, surgeon; Hugh L. McCIung, jurist; Mrs. Zell Hart Deming, publisher; Charles W. Sutro, financier; the Rt. Rev. Elmer N.

S- senator from Iowa, was born on a farm in Lucas county, Iowa, Oct. 39, 187S. His father and 'mother, ol English descent, had migrated to Iowa from Ohio on a flat-bottomed boat. The greater part of Dickinson's youth was passed on the farm in Iowa. He was forced to walk many miles to the little red schoolliouse. Dickinson entered Cornell college, Mount Vernon, -Iowa, to work his way through. He hired out as a farmhand to a neighbor, was a clerk in a hardware store, and after studying stenography at night school he became secretary to the president of the college in his third year. He played football and baseball. In 1898 Lester was graduated with a B. S. degree. Senator Dickimon »p»»kinj. One year later, he received the degree of LL. D. from the University of Iowa. Dickinson settled in Algona, Iowa, a town of 4,000 to practice law. He became popular among the townsfolk, and was appointed city clerk, a post he held for six years. This appointment proved to bo the starting point of Dickinson's political career. He always has been a "regular" republican. Romance entered Dickinson's life and he married Myrtle Call of Algona on Aug. 21, 1901. After the honeymoon the couple returned to Algona, where Dickinson continued his law practice. In 1909 Dickinson was elected county attorney of Kossuth county, Iowa. He served for two terms. HONOR OFFICER WHO WAS SLAIN Hundreds of Persons From All Ranks of Life at · Pape Funeral.

During the night a string of friends nearly a block long waited outside the funeral home in a. drizzling rain to pay heir respects, to the man who. knew W fear. The entire Dubuque police department, headed by Chief John W. Giellis, marched in a body to honor a law enforcing comrade.
