CEDAR RAPIDS, May 10.--The present federal administration was described as a menace to the constitutional rights of the people of the United States in an address here Tuesday by J. A. Nelson of Decorah, candidate for the republican nomination for lieutenant governor. Nelson spoke before the Conopus club Tuesday noon and before the state convention of the Disabled American Veterans earlier in the day. He was the speaker at a meeting of the Young Republican club at Waterloo Monday evening. Democratic administrations at Washington and Des Moines were scored by Nelson for their policy of "spending their way into prosperity," which he declared is actually leading to further depression because of the added tax burden. Nelson credited Roosevelt with being well intentioned, but criticized the president for failing to practice what he preached. He cited Roosevelt's promise to "drive the money changers from the temple" and accused him of calling them back bj offering tax-exempt securities when the government needed money. The corn-hog program and the state sales tax were attacked by Nelson as taxes paid for the raos 1 part by the poor man. The present beer statute was also criticized by the Decorah attorney. Beer parlors will be regulated if the G. O. P. is returned to power in Iowa, Nelson promised. The direct primary was blamed by the speaker for much of the political evil of today. He urged return to the convention system charging the primary with responsibility for an Inferior type of of flee holder, boosted into powe, through bombast. Iowa citizens are in a kind o: sleep. Nelson believes, from which they must awaken to inject neces sary new blood into politics of both parties. When people come to their senses, Nelson said, they will realize that the constitution is the grea'' bulwark of their liberties. COLFLESH HITS LOVRIEN CLAIMS Characterizes Former Judge as "Turner's Gun Man" in Audubon Talk. AUDUBON, May 10.--Robert W. Colflesh, candidate for the republican nomination as governor, this afternoon took a pot shot at Former Judge Fred C. Lovrien, whom he characterized as "Dan Turner's gun man" before a meeting held here in behalf of his candidacy. "I am conducting a constructive campaign," he said. "I do not intend to devote my time to personalities. But I do not expect to remain silent in face of misrepresentation and slander. Attacks are Circulated. "Mr. Lovrien seems to be the gun man in the Turner organization. His attacks are being circulated throughout the state by Turner supporters. He poses as the champion of using corn alcohol for motor fuel, and accuses me of having opposed this measure when it was before the legislature. "I did oppose it. I did not favor compelling every gasoline consumer in Iowa to pay five cents a gallon additional for gasoline, in the vague hope of benefiting the farmers. "It is strange that Mr. Lovrien who served three full sessions in the Iowa house of representatives, not to mention three special sessions never found out about the merits of the corn alcohol proposition until he appeared as a lobbyist. To date, also, I find no record of the fact that Mr. Turner ever favorec Mr. Lovrien's pet measure. Asks About Salary Grab. "It is also fair to ask, in view of the fact that Mr. Lovrien has made several remarks about ra own personal fitness for office when Mr. Lovrien is going to pay back into the state treasury th $500 expense account grab whicl he voted for in the forty-secon general assembly, through which he personally benefited to the ex tent of the full claim allowed bj this law, which was held unconstltu tional in Iowa courts. "Mr. Lovrien would be far mor effective as a Turner champion i his record in connection with wha is now notorious in Iowa as th 'salary grab' were not open to pub lie inspection. Mr. Lovrien vote himself the money, he accepte it, and so far he has refused t pay It back." HE'LL have the fame--Blue Ribbon, too, and not simply because it's his order. She knows, as he does, that Blue Ribbon has It, the It that has made Blue Ribbon the standing order of the nation. You, too, will thrill to the wonderful flavor, the stimulating full strength, and the perfect quality of this famous beer. Just try it R I B B O N Distributed by WITWER GROCER CO. SUNNY SUNDAYS..

P ITY the poor Weather Prophet these days! He says it's going to be Fair and Wanner. Before the words are out of his mouth it's Cloudy and Colder! Some people don't realize that an automobile engine is very sensitive to Spring's sudden changes of weather. These changes cannot affect your car if you're using Mobilgas. For this gasoline, as you may know, has Climatic Control. In simple words--Climatic Control means your gasoline has been specially preadjusted at the refinery for any and all weather conditions, rain or shine, hot or cold. Your engine will run at its best all of the time instead of some of the time. If you're not a regular Mobilgas motorist, there never was a better time than right now to put Climatic Control to the test. Use Mobilgas regularly for the next few changeable weeks and notice the difference. You don't have to hunt for Mobilgas. You'll see Mobilgas pumps everywhere. Just remember-- that's where you get the all- weather gas. Drive in--and fill up your tank. Get the most out of Spring driving--and the most out of your car.
