BABIES, BOMBS & Battleship*— MADRID—Great waves of German planes swooped low last week over Guernica, "Holy City" of the Basques, blasted the houses from their foundations with heavy bomba, loosed showers of glittering twtf-pound aluminum Incendiary bombs to turn this ancient village of 10,000 to a furnace. Following the bombers, fighting planes swooped down with all machine guns popping, harrying terrified pea* ants through the |0eld«, sending them sprawling in their own blood Over 800 men, women and children were killed; but the small muni tions factory and barracks on Urta Said Catholic Canon Alberto On oindia of Valladolld Cathedral: " saw the bombing and burning o Guernica, one of the terrible crime of this age. I walked through the streets thick with blood, and the bodies of the dead, manj dismembered.

Now am going to try to see the Pope and beg him to intervene ... In the hope that he can obtain a prom ise from the Rebels to renounc this warfare against the civilian population." As elderly Viscount Cecil of Che! wood uprose in Britain's House o Lords and cried: "There is no prec edent in the history of clvlllze< nations for anything like this raid Let me repeat that there are ru mors that it is to be followed by n similar attack on Bilbao", nor raaUy-cool U. & Columnist Dorothj Thompson wrote: "Good God!

As you might guess, the Texas rules prevailed, more or less, mostly less. But there was very little blood spilled. And that frll to the lot of Johnny Cosgrove of Titonka, in his six round bout with Benny Salvador of Fort Dodge. The bout was a draw. Other boxing results follow: Birchie Trembly, Fairmont, and Spud Casanovia, Ft. Dodge, draw. Kid Chrlstensen, Ringsted. and Kid Burgess, Armstrong, decision to Chfistensen. one round to Christensen, three draws. Joe Lucas, Des Moines, lost a six round decision to Jimmy Salvadore, Ft Dodge. Bull Ross is the lad who had some lead or iron in his shoe, several weeks ago, and the crowd was looking for some more tricks, but got fooled. Bauer won the third fall in a desperate attack In which he dusted off the ring with Ross, polished lip the ropes with his head and arms, and then firmly planted both feet on his shoulders before the Bull could recover from the onslaught. KOHLHAAS HOME AFTER 1ST TERM IN LEGISLATURE Had Place on Many of The Most Important Committees Just as the Romans of old, eventually came home from the wars, even though many years passed in Lhe meantime, so did Phil Kohlhaas, Kossuth county representative, come Home this week, after Ills first session in the state legislature. Phil says for the first few weeks he sat and watched the parade. Then after getting his bearings, he took an active part in the various committees to which he was named, where bills had their first handling before getting onto the floor of the bouse. • Motor Vehicle Bill The gigantic task of reorganit- tn« th» »«f«r vehicle laws Off " " 750 Attend Algona Legion Conclave RAIN HINDERS PARADE; GOOD TIME. SAY ALL Convention Here Called Best Ever Held in District Girl Crushed By Disc As Father Plows Falrvlew-Convith: Patty Foley two years old, daughter of Mr. and Airs. Harry Foley, was seriously injured a few days ago when she was ran over with a disc. Her father was discing, and without his knowing It, the little girl ran in front of the disc. lie was unable to stop before she was struck. She received a gash on the forehead, which required four stitches to close. A piece of flenh was also severed from the back v of her head, and one hip was badly crushed. She Is reported getting along as well as can be expected. Both Mr. and Mrs. Foley lived In this community until a year ago when they moved to Thor. which KohlbaaY among others, w»» assigned. The "Use tax" bill, was another bill that Kohlhaas worked on In committee. He stated that Iowa couTd expect an extra million in revenue from the bill. He declared that his vote against the teachers' pension bill was based on the fact that as set up in Des Moines, it would have provided very little in the way of pensions for teachers from Kossuth, but would have been an extra tax burden to carry. Liquor Control In the matter of liquor control, Kohlhaas statrO that he was in favor of the ntw regulations which prohibited serving of beer In dance halls, except as provided with regard to adequate floor space to dance, and other provisos. He voted against the liquor by the drink bill. A tightening of restrictions and rulings which govern building and loan associations was another bill that Kohlhaas put in quite a bit of time on, and the net result is a much better control of such associations—one that is welcomed by the better and larger groups. Appropriations and Cities and Towns, and the Judiciary committees were other groups on which Kohlhaas had a place. He stated that he had discovered that the real work of the legislature is done in committee meetings, and seldom on the floor of the house or senate.

Schuler of Swea City plays second base, a good fielder who can cover a lot of territory, a good arm and is considered the fastest base runner among high school players. Brandt of Titonka, is another out Holder that can hit the ball and do a good job of chasing fly balls and we would place him in right field. Griffith of Swea City is a choice for center field.
