TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MAY 12 1934 2 STRIKES END; OTHERS KEEP ON Making of Bread, Shoes ac Automobiles Hampered by Walkouts. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Two strikes were erased Saturday from the national's map of Indus. trial disturbances, but other labor - disputes hampered the making of bread, shoes and automobiles. Settlement of longshoremen's strikes at Texas ports and Mobile Ala., was announced. Nearly 5,00( strikers returned to work at the Texas ports and Lake Charles, La. and 200 longshoremen went back to their jobs at Mobile. The government considered intervening in a longshoremen's : strike on the Pacific coast. Four , men were injured in disturbances on the San Francisco waterfront. Plant Shut Down. The Buick Motor company's plant at Flint, Mich., was shut down, throwing 14,000 men out of work. Company officials gave no explanation. The close came just after the strike of union employes of the Fisher Body Corporation's plant No. 1, which produces bodies for Buick. Unofficial reports said a settle- .ment of the Fisher plant strike would-be sought over the week-enc and that plans called for the 5.000 strikers to return to work Tuesday The workers walked out because they asserted, 25 employes were discharged for having taken part in a labor demonstration. Motor Fuel Lacking. Automobile traffic ebbed but streetcar travel boomed at Clcve- land, where motor fuel was lacking because of the three week strike of 2,000 filling station attendants for more pay. The shutdown of filling stations became virtually complete With the strike threatening- to spread to Akron, Ohio, Secretary Ickes, the oil administrator, expected to confer with oil company representatives and union leaders at Washington today in quest of a truce. Akron, Ohio, was threatened with breadless days by a strike of 500 bakers and bread truck drivers. They demand increased wages. Home baking became popular again. Asks F. K. Aid. At Cincinnati 1,100 employes of Remington-Rand, Inc., joined workers of other company plants in a strike. James H. Rand, Jr., president, said he would ask President Roosevelt to intervene. Striking .employes -- numbering nearly 4,000--of the Brown Shoe company of Salem, Charleston, Mat- - toon,, Sullivan;:. aria' ; Murpliystiptp,: - ' ' i'·.ipipkete peacefully Tand : aPSalsm- boycotted merchants who would not display sympathy signs. , Under -protection of a court order, the Skelly Oil company resumed operation of its gasoline plant at Seminole, OkJa. The order restrains striking employes from interfering. R. H. Stickle, acting head of the International Oil Workers union, said at Washington, he "understood" the . Seminole field strikers had been advised by William Green, president of the American Federation of Labor, to go back to work. Stones Are Thrown. Stones were thrown in a demon- istration by several-thousand strikers and sympathizers at the Buffalo, N. T., plant of the Curtiss Aero- plane and Motor company. No one was injured. Police and deputies, armed with shotguns and firehose attached to hydrants, .took command of the situation. Western Kentucky coal mines were made ready for reopening with skeleton crews. Operators hoped to obtain sufficient workers at a $4 scale'for a seven hour day to keep pits' open pending a decision an their injunction against the 54.60 NRA scale. Jail Employe Accused of Helping Dillinger Escape Is Acquittec CROWN POINT, ind., May 12. la?j--Judge Maurice Crites Friday acquitted Earnest Blunk, the Lake county fingerprint expert accused of aiding John Dillinger's -escape from the Crown Point jail. INDIVIDUALISM IN WAY OUT, REPORT ConUuued From faie 1) American Historical association, however, retained .it, again submitting it, revised somewhat, to the commission members. It received all but four signatures. Opinion Differences Only. The commission member scoffed at reports published last winter that the pressure of outside Interests- business and the administration-had been instrumental in softening the alleged radical tone of the re port. Differences of opinion on certain phases of the report alone caused the delay in making it public, the commission member said. In its first summary of findings and recommendations, the commission predicts tljat the emerging "collectivism" may involve limiting or supplanting of private property by public property. "Or it may entail the present tion of private property, extended and distributed among the masses," the commission adds. Still phophesying, the commission says that present day tensions created by the changing order of things will continue "until some approximate adjustment is made between social thought, social practice and economic realities, or until society exhausted by the conflict, and at the end of its spiritual and inventive resources, sinks back into a more primitive order of economy and life." Warns Against Regimentation. Recommending the curbing of individualism in economy, the commission, however, warns against "goose step" regimentation in ideas, culture and invention, and of "fostering a narrow intolerant nationalism or an aggressive predatory imperialism." The preservation and development of individuality "in its non-acquisitive expressions," the commission declares, "is the finest flower of civilized society." "The American people," the report says, "should respect and safeguard the right of the individual to be free from excessive social pressures on his personal behavior, mode of living, cultural satisfactions and avocations, and religious, .economic and political beliefs."

BELJION0, IOWA Send for Catalogue FIRE PREVENTION SCHOOLPLANNED Annual Session at Ames on May 22-29 Announced by State Marshal. DBS MOINES, May 12. UP--State' Fire .Marshal John W; rStrohm itof iiyJ announced;'plans for ; the state's annual fire prevention .school to be held at Ib*va State college May 2225. The school, held each year at Ames, is sponsored by the state col- ege under the direction of Lindon . Murphy, municipal engineer of the engineering extension service. The state marshal emphasized today that smaller cities of the state with volunteer fire departments were urged especially to send'a delegation to the school this year. Volunteer Groups. "It is important that paid fire de- jartment officials attend the school," Strohm said. "But it is per- laps even more important that representatives of volunteer groups be jresent for the study of safety neasures that may be employed in fighting fires. "These volunteers, most often in ordinary street clothes, dash to a fire to serve. as best they may oftentimes without a great deal of technical instruction. Attendance at the training school by these men may be the means of preventing needless loss of life. "Properly advised firemen know, for example, of the dangei of entering a burning building when no flame is visible. They know that a door opened into such an invisible fire will permit oxygen to enter and encourage a possibly disastrous explosion." Include Demonstrations. The school will include practical demonstrations of the use of the fireman's equipment and lectures bj prominent chiefs of departments in several midwest cities. Speakers will include Marshal Strohm, President C. A. Stephenson of the Iowa Fireman's association; Chief Frank C. McAuliffe of the Chicago fire patrols; Bille Hale, fire pump engineer of Kansas City; Chief Just of the Illinois department; Extension Engineer Murphy and Deputy Fire Marshals Frank Nieman, Sam Starr, and Fred Carlson. The Iowa school also will include specialized courses on practical work in rope, hose and ladder work for firemen; fire department administration for department officers; and the care and operation of pumps for pump operators- Average About 400. The attendance usually averages around 400. but Strohm anticipated a large gathering this year. The school is the second oldest in the nation, he said, -with Illinois at the top. "Every city and town in Iowa should send as many of their firemen to this school of instruction each year as possible," the marshal asserted, "In order that they may be better prepared to meet the many problems confronting every firemar in fighting a fire, and to help reduce the fire loss in our state." 25 Years as Storekeeper. FAULKNER, May 12.--Fred W. Dentel celebrated his twenty-fifth anniversary as storekeeper here by giving a big free dance to the community Wednesday night. 6.0, P. TO MEET AT MANCHESTER Session Next Friday Night to Be Third of Series of District Rallies.

Smith, Osage, fourth district committeeman and Miss Anna Stillwell, Waukon, fourth district committsewo- rnan. Previous rallies have been held at New Hampton and Charles City, and an unexpectedly large attendance iu both cases. A record crowd is expected at Manchester because of the nearness to the primary election date. ·Two years ago," said Mr. Smith. "Delaware and Buchanan counties were added to the old fourth district. This meeting will be the first held in either of the new counties. It is for this reason that the organ izatiou is desirous of having a large representation from .every section of our district. In this way we shall be showing the republicans of the new counties that they are more than welcome into the fourth district." All interested in republicanism, including precinct committee workers, are being urged to attend. Candidates lor county offices, as well as for district and state office, are expected to be present : ' in !trge numbers. CANDIDATES SEEK FAVOR OF DONKEY Continued From rage 1) for several years before that, is an active candidate. In Nebraska Governor Bryan, brother of William Jennings Bryan, wants to be the democratic nominee for the senate, but there is talk that Arthur Mullen, friend of President Roosevelt and his floor manager at the 1932 convention, has ambitions along the same line. If Mullen should decide to seek the nomination a bitter p^rty struggle would certainly be precipitated with far-reaching consequences. MRS. WORTH AGAIN HOSEN BY B. P. W.

JOHNSON USING WASTE BASKET Says 85 Per Cent of NRA's Effort Put on 15 Per Cent of Program. WASHINGTON, May 12. (JPl-- "We're not going to fool with them any longer." This was the statement of Hugh S. Johnson in shunting scores ot codes covering tiny industrial groups toward handy NRA waste baskets. His action created a new NRA policy toward the "very little fellows." Industries and codes affecting less than 15 per cent of the recovery program are taking 85 per cent ot NRA efforts and funds, Johnson said yesterday. "Some of the little fellows," he added, "can sign the president's reemployment agreement. Many minor individual manufacturing industries may be worked into codes for a general kind of product. Johnson is drafting a reply to the Clarence Darrow report, reputedly critical of NRA as it affects small business and monopolies. The report and answer will be made public next week, by President Roosevelt. Concededly disturbed by "hullabaloo" over charges in some quarters that the Darrow report was being suppressed, Johnson said: "There isn't any idea whatever ot submerging that report." Senator Nye (R. N. Dak.), persistent critic of NRA, asserted there was "a desire to keep the report buried until congress gets away," and that unless it were made public shortly a move would be made in the senate to "pry it loose." 'The Blond Bombshell' Obtained to Replace Strand's Nudist Film Jean Harlow in "The Blond Bombshell" with dynamic Lee Tracy in the chief supporting role has been obtained by Manager Milton Nichols of the Strand theater for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday to replace the nudist colony film, "Elysia." Mr. Nichols canceled the latter picture Friday after discussing with City Manager E. H. Crofoot a number of protests against it. SENATE PASSES STOCK MART ACT (Continued Jrran r*tt 1) Dieterich, democrats; and Cutting, republican. Keyes and Walcott, republicans, were paired against the bill. Senators who did not vote and whose position on the bill was.not announced, follow: Copeland, Long, Pittman, Pope, Russell, Smith and Trammell. and Caraway--democrats, and Davis and Reed--republicans. Sonator Copeland was paired with Senator White (JR., Me.) and announced that since the latter was not present and his position was not known he would withhold his vote. The senate then took up the Glass bill providing for loans to industry through the federal reserve system. 2 Confessed Torture Bandits Will Get 2nd Sentences in Series EMMETSBURG, May 12--Estel Anders of Decatur, HI., and Ole Thorsland of Bode were this afternoon to be given the second of their sentences in.connection with a series of torture robberies in North Iowa, to which they have confessed. Judge F. C. Davidson was to pass sentence. The two have already been sentenced to 25 years in the penitentiary for the robbery of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar J. Eisenman near Woden. Railroad Company Gives Job to Man Who Reported Flaw HAMILTON, OnL, May 12. L5R-- E. Price of Saltileet knows how to get a job--find a faulty railroad track. Unemployed, he was walking down the Canadian National railway track near his home when he noticed a crack under a rail. He walked two miles to report the fault to railway officials, who said it might have caused a serious mishap. And the road superintendent notified Price to report for duty on a steady job.

Brains of Minnesota State U Department of Psychology Gone MINNEAPOLIS, May 12. UP)-Lost, strayed or stolen--the brains of the University of Minnesota's psychology department--and no one missed them for months. A psychology lecturer, Howard Longstaff, first learned of the disappearance when he sought the brains to demonstrate thought processes to his first year psychology class. "Have you had the brains?".he asked a colleague. , "No, I haven't used them for ages." The brains are a demonstration model, showing the formation of the human brain. Nazi Leaders Open Throttle in Drive in on 'Fault Finders' BERLIN, May 12. (SPt--Nazi leaders opened the throttle today in a nationwide campaign against "fault finders"--chiefly German Jews. The drive was proclaimed by Dr. Joseph Goebbels, who as minister of propaganda is the loud speaker of the regime of Adolf Hitler. A cheering throng heard Goebbels voice the government's "last warning" to Jews at Berlin's huge sportpalast last night.

(JP)-The government rushed to the rescue today of drought stricken farmers harrassed by weather conditions unprecedented for 40 springs past. The administration prepaied to hit along three lines. The fsderal relief agency surveyed the situation with an eye to pouring in food and funds if needed. The farm administration simultaneously reshaped its plans to meet conditions. The third prong in the program was a reported study by the administration of a long time national plan for evening up the supply between good and bad years so as to prevent any possible future food shortage. Examine Information. President Roosevelt and his cabinet spent considerable time yesterday examining information on the drought area gathered by Secretary Wallace. The president was understood,to have.:called for further reports. . . . . ;. . Farm administration leaders had their heads together" today and planned to continue conferences through most of the week-end. Active -in the parleys were Dr. A. G. Black, head of the corn-hog section, and George E. Farrell, nead of the wheat section, both of whom returned today from western trips trips. The administration yesterday made the first gesture of government aid for farmers suffering from the cumulative effect of drought, heat and soil blowing which covered the entire eastern hah! of the country with a mile high cloud of dust. Extend Signup Drive. Farrell announced that the campaign for signers of wheat production control contracts would be extended from May 10 until May 16 to give farmers in the drought area an opportunity to sign. The administration was also considering the possibility of allowing farmers to plant spring grain crop on winter wheat land ruined by the bad weather. The continued drought meanwhile caused the official crop estimaters to shave another 19,500,000 bushels from their May 1 winter wheat crop forecast, bringing it down to ·Ml,900,000 bushels.

President Roosevelt definitely assumed the position today that the next move in the who's-in-dafault game is up to the European debtor nations. i Through diplomatic channels the president has informed Great Britain, France, Italy, Belgium and Czechoslovakia that the United States la willing to at least discuss any individual suggestions for payments on or readjustments of their debts. No Wholesale Kevision. The debtor nations have learned from their envoys here, however, that the president is adamant ' against any general conclave of nations for wholesale revision of debts. They have been informed also, that the president cannot again definitely assure token payers that they are not in default under the terms of the Johnson act. Wants Settlement. Behind the strict interpretation given the Johnson act-- banning defaulters from this country's money markets -- is the president's determination to arrive at an equitable settlement of the debt problem rather than a continuance of drop- in-the bucket payments.

C3?-- President .Roosevelt expects to ask congress next week for $1,322,000.000 to carry on the recovery program. Out of that fund is to come the 5228,000,000 that restoration of veterans allowance and pay cuts will cost. All extra appropriations voted so far by congress also are to be included, so that ordinary expenditures may be held within budget limits. Among other items to be deducted are 5*0,000,000 for crop loans, an equal amount for farm mortgages, 529,000,000 for Mississippi flood control work and 55,000,000 for the army's airplane program. BILL ON SILVER SEEMS CERTAIN Roosevelt and Advocates in Congress Apparently in Agreement. WASHINGTON, May 12. W)-President Roosevelt and congressional silver advocates were so near tog-ether todas' on a bill for rehabilitation of silver that legislation at this session appeared certain. Both senate silverites and the white house were in apparent agreement for a declaration of policy by congress, definitely fixing silver as a part of the national monetary basis at a ratio of not less than 25 per cent against 75 per cent gold. The remaining trouble, if any, lay in whether there should be straight out direction or whether mere discretion would be left with the pres- : dent to carry out this mandatory proposition. The white house has indicated Mr. Roosevelt would insist on the actual steps being left to his discretion. The sliver bloc probably will call on the president next week to discuss the "satisfactory progress" which Senator King (D., Utah), chairman of the group, said the parley made yesterday.
