BRUCE BAUMGARDNER years in the Fort Madison penitentiary- Mrs. Coleman drew a 30 year sentence in the Rockwell City women's reformatory. The opinion, written by Judge E. A. Sager of Wavevly, held the Marion county district court erred in permitting George Hunt, KHOX- s'ille marshal, to testify concerning a fight in which Coleman participated three weeks before. Affirms Soldiers' Preference "This testimony concerned the commission of a crime other than that charged in the indictment and for which the defendant was not on trial," the opinion said. The supreme court affirmed a Wapello county district court decision ruling in favor of Charles Maddy in a city of Ottumwa soldiers preference case. Maddy ap- "plied for the position of police judge April 1. 1937. The council, the opinion said, appointed M. H. Ziffren to the position, even though Maddy is a World war veteran.

Nature gives it to BUTTER alone Somehow, everyone likes BUTTER and enjoys its creamy richness, appreciates that touch of luxury it seems to give. It is always pleasing . . . rt always adds that extra goodness no matter how it's used . . . ond it can't be counterfeited. Yes, BUTTER is one of the really good things of life, and one that all can afford to enjoy. But, BUTTER hos more than matchless flavor. It supplies health elements--Vitamin "A" which builds resistance to colds and similar ailments (particularly in children)--and Vitamin "D" which helps build bone structure and sound teeth. There's health in every pat of BUTTER and it pays to use it for that reason alone. 70 Creameries Co-operating to give you Fine Quality Butter Iowa State Brand Creameries, Inc. Meson City, lowo PLUMBERS ARE NEGOTIATING Employers Explain Their Stand in Present Walkout A committee of the plumbers union went into conference Wednesday afternoon with representatives or their employers in an effort to negotiate settlement of a strike \vhich went into effect S a t u r d a y when journeymen plumbers walked out on a demand for increase in wages. The journeymen, who are receiving SI an hour at present, are asking an'increase to SI.12'4 an hour. They refused to identify their walkout from seven Mason City plumbing establishments as a "strike," but merely a period of negotiation. Employers involved are the Kelroy company, J. C. Puth Cheesman, Carl Scharlau, W. V Clausen, Hughes Plumbing and Heating company and the Payne Plumbing and Heating company. Refuse Delivery The teamsters union, ot which Art McCoid is business agent, has gone on record to refuse delivery of supplies to employers of the striking journeymen plumbers. The employers' committee stated the first demand for an increase in wages of their union journeymen was made last December when they asked SI.25 an hour. This, the employers snid. came in | the wake of the announcement of union representatives that SI an hour was set in (he PWA schedules for the public building projects in Mason City. The SI.23 an hour increase was first presented when the jobs were ready for lelting and local plumbers were notified t h a t SI.25 would be the going wage on the PWA jobs. "This demand was made in the face of the fact that SI an hour appeared in the government schedules to alt the out of town contractor? bidding for the job," one member of the employers' committee stated. Refused Demand ''We had a meeting Feb. 1 and decided we could not meel the SI.25 demand. The seven union shop operators informed the union committee that we were competing against non-union shops paying a wage lower than the present union level and consequently doing the work cheaper. All the business would naturally flow to the non-union shops. ''They then offered to accept SI.12'i an hour. This also was i refused on the same basis. | ''My business has been in the | red seven out of the last eiqht [years. My men arc drawing "an \ .-innua) wase of from SI.950 to ; 52,000 at S! an hour.''
