Orchestra every night at Clear Lake Golf club. Michael Winter Stood Only 30 Feet Away at Time of Crash A coroner's jury Wednesday decided that the deaths of Albert Ewald and Martin A n d e r s o n , Northwood farmers, on the M. and St. L. railroad crossing on Fifteenth street northeast Saturday evening were "accidental."' "They were too involved in conversation," testified Michael Winter, 213 Thirteenth place northeast, to see him signaling for them to stop or to see the train which was coming directly toward the car before Mr. Ewald turned it toward the west to cross the track. Signal Was Flashing Mr. Winter said that he was on his way home at the time and stood about 30 feet from the spot where the train struck the car. He watched the car emerge from the driveway into the Jacob E. Decker and Sons loading yards a few feel southeast - of the crossing, drive to the north side of Fifteenth street and then proceed westward directly into the path of the oncoming train. Both Mr. Winter and Charles Hall, special policeman for the packing company who also saw the accident, testified that the train whistle was blowing before the accident and that the bell was ringing. Mr. Hall also said that the automatic flash crossing signal was working at the time. Could Have Seen Train "The driver could have seen the train if he had looked," said Mr. Hall. He, also affirmed the testimony of the engineer, William A. Cross, Marshalltown. that the train had slowed down as usual before approaching the crossing. The two car motor train was traveling approximately 20 miles an' hour, the engineer testified, and he saw the car did not intend to stop when the train was only 50 feet from the crossing. The auto was facing north, almost directly toward him, when he first saw it, the trainman said, and the weather was clear and the vision good. Train Pushed Wreckage John E. Wallace and Charles E.

GALLOWAY WASHINGTON, (IP) -- District Atty. Ed Dunn of Mason City and Postmaster H. E. Gooch of Sioux City may continue in office indefinitely although their terms have expired and other Iowa democrats have looked with yearning eyes at the jobs. Senator Guy M. Gillette, against whom Dunn worked in last June's attempted primary purge, apparently is adamant against his reappointment. Hairy L. Hopkins and Ed Eicher also threw their support against Gillette in the unsuccessful purge | attempt. Notwithstanding t h a t fact. Gillette voted for confirmation of Hopkins as secretary o£ commerce and Richer as member of the securities and exchange commission. 'Xutional in Scope He explained his action in those cases by saying thai the commerce and the SEC jobs were national in scope and that local differences therefore should not enter into the confirmation of their appointment.

Trewin. formerly of Mason City, as assistant secretary of the Milwaukee road with headquarters in the Chicago Union station was announced this week, by T. W. Burtness, secretary of the railroad. Mi's. Trewin, who is the widow of a former train service employe, is the first woman ever to hold the position of assistant secretary. She succeeds A. C. Hagensick, who is voluntarily retiring after 40 years ot rail service. The new executive has been an employe of the Milwaukee road for 18 years, entering the service as a stenographer in the office of the superintendent of the I. and D. division in Mason City. She was transferred to Chicago in the same capacity and worked ,, for the general superintendent until the office was abolished in i 1930. She then took the position, of secretary to Mr. Hagensick. In October, 1937, she became secretary to Mr. Burtness, which position she leaves to succeed Mr. Hagensick. Prior to his death, Mrs. Trewin's husband was in train service on the I. and D. division of the Milwaukee road. JNA . TREWIN NEARLY MILLION BUSHELS SEALED N CERRO GORDO Loan Corn Volume Largest in County Since 1934 Nearly a million bushels of orn have been sealed in Cerro Jordo county under the federal oan program, and according to ^red Cahalan, chairman of the tounty soil conservation associa- ion. The exact figure is 950,000 bushels to date with at least 10 more loans pending, according to Mr. Cahalan, who said the total :hould pass the 960,000 mark. Except for 1934, when the amount sealed passed the million )ushel mark, this is the largest jarticipation since the government program was started. But with Dunn it's d i f f e . - e n t . l S t .
