MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE TUESDAY, JANUARY 30, 1945 HENRY WALLACE IS ENDORSED BY FARMERS' UNION Â· Approved by Number Meeting in 5 Courity 2 Day Institute Here The appointment of Henry A. Wallace as secretary of commerce, with full control over the RFC, was urged at the Farmers' Union institute which opened at the Hotel Hanford Tuesday for a 2 day conference for farm families in reconversion planning for farmers. The. statement came from the conference backing Wallace for the new post. The statement from the conference follows: . "As secretary of agriculture, Henry A. Wallace demonstrated his efficiency as an administrator. He is more than that . . . he has the vision, the imagination, the integrity to initiate the policies necessary to meet. the difficult problems which lay ahead. "We oppose the George bill. Separation of. the RFC from the 1 .department Â· of commerce would make a postwar program of full .employment almost Impossible. :; "The battle over Henry Wallace's appointment with full powers is a cruicial one. Reactionary forces in congress, backed by big business and other privileged interests,, are alligned against the great majority of the people. "We join with the people of this country in demanding recognition oÂ£ Henry A. Wallace as the outstanding leader in people's movements in the United States." Because of late starting, part of .the conference p r o g r a m was changed to the afternoon prggram Tuesday. A. W. Ricker, editor ,of the Farmers Union Herald, was scheduled to speak over KGLO Tuesday afternoon and also at the conference. His subject for the conference Is "Economic Democracy Through Co-operatives." Glenn J. Talbott, president oÂ£ the N. Dakota Farmers Union, was scheduled to speak Tuesday evening on "The Farmers Union. A People's Movement." The evening meeting was scheduled to start at 7:30 p. m. Next 6 Weeks Hold Danger for Drivers Friday, Feb. 2, tradition insists, the groundhog will come out of his hole and decide whether there will be 6 more weeks of winter. Whatever the groundhog sees from the door of his hole, H. C. Brown, president of the Iowa State Safety council, observes, he could look into the garages and minds of careless motorists and predict a lot of trouble for them before the next 6 weeks have passed. National Safety Council's committee on winter driving hazards has noted with alarm the sharp reversal of previous gains in winter driving safety. Last winter's traffic deaths per 100,000 miles traveled were 53 per cent higher than corresponding summer rates in the 36 snowbelt states, and 24 per j cent higher than summer rates in the 12 southern states. The committee charges this is mainly due to skidding and reduced visibility brought on by snow, ice, frost or fog. With these facts in mind, Mr. Brown Tuesday urged Iowa motorists not only to check their cars's safety equipment for the rest of the winter weather we are sure to have, but to remember that summer weather in February and March is not something that can be bought even at the best- stocked stores. "Put on your anti-skid chains when snow or ice prevail, and see that your windshield wipers and defrosters haven't become winter- weary," he said. "Even then go more slowly, awheel or afoot, and you'll get there safe and sound, whatever Friday's g r o u n d h o g sees." Mr. Brown JAIL SENTENCE AND FINE GIVEN TO CATTLE THIEF Judge Butler Says Cattle Raisers Need Protection of Law Floyd Smittkamp of Marble Rock pleaded guilty to a county attorney's information charging him with larceny of domestic animals and was sentenced by Judge W. P. BuUer to 6 months in jail and to the payment of a $500 fine.

Walking on the open road facing traffic does not insure a pedestrian that he will not be struck from behind. "Carry or wear' something white and stay off the pavement," Mr. Brown admonishes. He also disclosed that walking into the side of moving cars has caused 3 pedestrian deaths so far in January.

Lud%yig, Miss Rosalie Alne and Mary Lou Haverly, attended a memorial service at Story City for Lt. Col. Herbert Egeness Sunday afternoon. It is Tea at its Best TEA In Packages and Tea Bags at Your Grocer's jail. Smittkamp, who lives on a farm, admitted coming to Mason City late the night of Sept. 10, 1944, and that on the way home near midnight he backed his truck up to the pen at the Lund sales barns and loaded 7 head of cattle. Smittkamp admited too that he ran out of gas at the viaduct on highway 18 this side of Nora Springs. It was through information provided by a filling station operator that Smittkamp was suspected and subsequently arrested by Sheriff Tim Fhalen. Representing the state at the hearing was County Atty. M. L. Mason, while. 'W. G. Henke, Charles City, was attorney for the defendant. ' In pronouncing the sentence Judge Butler commented on the severity of the crime and the right of society to be protected. "The crime with which this defendant is charged is that of larceny of domestic animals," said Judge Butler. "Courts and I think society have long since passed the period where or when the stealing of domestic animals, particularly of horses in the early days constituted an offense that in the minds of the community at least was punishable most severly even sometimes by hanging. "And yet society does recognize that there is some element of inherent justice in a belief that it is necessary that the stealing of domestic animals be treated seriously. A banker or jeweler or even a merchant may lock up his property and keep it under such conditions that usually has the protection of the policeman who walks the street at' night. That is not true of the farmer or the man who owns domestic animals. They must of necessity be' largely at large, and if- that sort of property is to be protected it must be by either the observance or the enforcement of the law against the stealing of such properay; and for that reason very properly the penalty, for taking of domestic animals .is severe. "In this case the court has listened to what the defendant's attorney has had to say; he has also given consideration to the request of many of Mr. Smittkamp's friends that the court deal leniently with him. The court recognizes the fact that this man has a family and that the family probably is suffering just as much as he is as the result of his wrong. The court has also heard what has been said about the motive back of'this action, and although we recognize that that Is no excuse for the defendant, the court does recognize that sometimes people feel that they are wronged and justify in their own minds the takiner of the law into their own hands to try to right that wrong. % "Although I do not.feel Justified in granting the request of this petition that this man be paroled from the bench, I am taking all these things into consideration in determining the penalty that is going to be imposed in this case. I feel that the protection of the people of this community is a matter that the court must take into consideration as well as the interests oÂ£ this individual defendant. 'Although I do not want to be harsh, and I trust that I shall not be, the protection of the property of the people of the community demands that the court shall not be soft or easy in dealing with those who succumb to the tempta- 'tion to steal other people's property. "It will be the judgment of this court that the defendant be committed to the county jail for a term of six months, and that in addition thereto he pay a fine of 5500. Upon the non-payment of the fine he be imprisoned for a further period of 150 days." HE STRUCK BACK AT POLIO--Drawing a bead on polio.

YANKS PREFER STATE BALLOTS Stimson Files Sharp Criticism With Congress Washington, (/F)--Soldiers overseas were recorded Tuesday as preferring state ballots to the much-disputed federal forms in last fall's election. This report came from War Sec. retary Stimson, as he filed with congress a sharp criticism of the soldier vote law as passed last year. Declaring "insignificant use" was made of the short form federal ballot, and that its administration was "excessively complex," Stimson said it resulted in "burdens which appear disproportionate to any resulting util- f" He reported that in the 20 states which approved federal ballots use only about 5.3 per cent of the soldiers eligible used it, and commented:- "Most servicemen who desire to vote were able to obtain, then vote and return their'state absentee ballot, leaving relatively few who needed to (or legally could) ose federal ballots." The federal ballot was the subject* of much controversy in congress, opponents saying it invaded rights of states and supporters contending it was needed to insure soldiers a vote: Stimson made these estimates: 1. There were overseas approximately 4,900,000 army, navy and merchant Â· marine voting age. 2. Only 108,691 of this croup used federal ballots. Of these 9,868 SLAVIC CRISIS SEEMS SETTLED Peter Agrees to Regency Powers London; (U.P.)--The Yugoslav political dispute, which for a time threatened to rival the Greek and Polish controversies as a to allied unity, appeared day to have been settled in advance of the "big three" meeting. King Peter of Yugoslavia announced Monday night t h a t he had agreed to Transfer his powers to a regency by royal decree and had approved the formation of a "new" government charged with putting the Subasic-Tito pact into effect. The "new" government under Premier Ivan Subasic actually was the same as the former regime with the/exception of Dr. Izidor Cankar, who was dropped as education minister. His portfolio was absorbed by Dr. Draja Marusic, who continued as justice and communications minister. Subasic continued as war and foreign affairs minister in addition to premier. The announcement of the formation of the government said it would put the agreement reached by Subasic and Marshal Tito into effect, "taking into account" Peter's observations in a formal communique Jan. 11 and subsequent suggestions. In his Jan. 11 communique, Peter demanded a voice in forming the regency and called for an enlargement of the proposed Yugoslav legislative council to include representatives of more than 1 party. To what extent Peter modified his demands during subsequent conversations with Subasic was not-disclosed. He apparently had withdrawn his ouster of Subasic, or by-passed it by approving the formation of the "new" government. Under the Tito-Subasic agreement, the new government will go to Belgrade and merge with a Tito regime in a provisional government that will rule Yugoslavia until elections can be held. A plebiscite also will be held after the war to determine whether Peter shall return as king. BONG WELCOMED BY MILWAUKEE City Showers Ace, Fiancee With Gifts Milwaukee, (U.R)--None of the 40 "Nip" pilots shot down by Maj. Richard I. Bong ever threw as much his way as grateful Mil- waukeeans, many of them mindful of their own sons in the service, tossed into his arms during his whirlwind visit to the city. Bong and the girl he will marry Feb. 10 returned to Superior Tuesday with their arms overloaded with expensive gifts and tangible evidences of the good wishes of scores of admirers. The prize of his fiancee, Maree Vat- tendahl's .visit was a SI,350 nutria (South American beaver) fur coat presented by their hosts, the Elks club and a group of athletic club members. The major also carried home a new military overcoat and other items presented by one of the city's largest department stores and a plumbing supplier' promise to outfit the Bong bathroom with fine fixtures when the couple settles down in their home. But the giving was not lopsided, because Bong and his bride to be devoted hours' of their one-day visit to making appearances at clubs and business offices throughout the city and shook hands and signed autographs until their arms ached. The energetic ace of the American air forces also insisted upon visiting buddies of the armed services at the veteran's hospital in Suburban Wood, "Wis., where he spent more than an hour. Many veterans whose disabilities would have exempted them from military formality arose to attention and saluted when Bong entered. They called attention to the fact that his numerous decorations, including the congressional medal of honor, almost concealed his pilot's wings, but Bong attributed his success to good luck and added that perhaps the Jap pilots threat he na ^ vanquished weren't so hot. Tues- Sgt. George Carroll, an aerial Ickes Not Responsible for Figures Chicago, U,R--A woman clerk in the office of the board of tax appeals was responsible for the disputed figures in Secretary of the Interior Harold L. Ickes' appeal from payment of 1943 and 1944 real estate taxes, Gordon Nash, Cook county assistant state's attorney, said Tuesday. Mrs. Olive Flannigan, and no Ickes, inserted a 52,000 figure as monthly rent received from a business building, owned by the secretary according to Nash, who is investigating charges that Ickes falsified an appeal to obtain tax reductions. The figure, amounting to an an nual rental income of $24,000, wa in variance with the $61,35 which county assessors said Icke realized annually in rental re ceipts. The $2,000 rental figure was in strumental in obtaining a reduc tion in the valuation of the prop erty and a tax cut amounting t $8,500 for 1943 and 1944, Nas said. Mrs. Flannigan told Nash tha the complaint as signed by Icke was incomplete when she receive it and that she filled in the blank on information from Mrs. Mabe :einecke, former collector of in- ernal revenue who helped Ickes make out the appeal. Both the ental figure and a check mark lenoting the building as a 3-ftory, ather than 5-story, structure vere in pencil, while Ickes' slg- lature on the appeal was written n ink. Nash said the statement ended me phase of his inquiry but added hat further investigation will be continued when Mrs. Reinecke, vho was in Montana, could be reached for an explanation of the ncident. Drop in Allotment of , Passenger Tire Casings Washington, (IP)-- Tires will be even harder to get next month. The office of price administration announced a new drop in allotments of passenger car casings, granting only 1,000,000 for February, the lowest release since last October. The allotment compares with 2,000,000 in December and 1,800,000 this month. Blaming the situation on military demands, OPA said civilians would have to resort more than ever to prompt recapping and tire repairs. Truck and bus tiros quotas will be generally unchanged.
