"FIGHTING CLOTHES"— WASHINGTON: "I have come back with all sorts of new lessons which I learned from barracuda and sharks ..." sa'd Franklin Roosevelt Just two years ago to 20 Senators and 200 Representatives who cBmc down to the station to greet him when he retuurned to Washington from a southern fishing ^niint. In revolt against his domination. Congress nevertheless settled down a few days after this famed "tough guy" speech to whip through the president's long list of "must" legislation. Returning home again last week from another southern fishing trip to another sulking Congress, President Roosevelt found none but members of his private and official families at the station to meet him. Instead of a "tough guy" speech, he had this time given warning of his temper to newshawks aboard his northbound train by volunteering Information that he was determined to press anew the aims outlined in his campaign speech of last fall when he hoped that the "forces of selfishness and lust for power" would "meet their master." Congressional leader* summoned to the White Home ft few hours after the President's return verified his truculent mood. Emerging after an hour, gruff Senate Majority* Leader Robinson growled: "The battle will fir oni" Then House Speaker Rankhead and Floor Leader Kayburn added: "The president has on hi* fighting clothes." The causes of congressional discontent last week were far broader and deeper than three years ago. In the matter of Economy. Congress was not only at odds with the President but divided within itself. But Economy was only a froth on the turbulent riptide of Congressional feeling about the President's Supreme Court plan. Son-Secretary James Roosevelt and Postmaster General Farley, who sped South last week to join the returning President, were both reportedly dispatched by Senate lead- Mil to tell the President that Ula GIRL, 14, LEAVES HOME AFTER QUARREL —_ — • .1 AH mi AM IM OTtl MEMORIAL DAY PLARS READY FOR OCCASION Gov.

HEELER'S UNIOX— WASHINGTON—When election time comes around, the man upon wise political bosses count is the obscure little wardheeler who, through family, friends and acquaintances, can be counted on to deliver 60 or 60 certain votes. Of this smallest cog in the political machine, this precinct executive who lives with his constituents and docs favors for them year in and year out, Pundit Frank Kent wrote In "The Great Game of Politics": "If he does not function, the machine decays. If he quits, the machine dies. He is the actual connect- link between the people and ing the organization the only man Corwith Murder Is Still A Mystery There are no new developments in the Corwith murder of Bert An- Anson, whose body was found be- pide a railroad track there last week.

He has undergone a grilling nearly every night for the past few days by Paul Gruber, state agent, working on the case. Gruber says there is no report as to what kind of blood was found on a shirt owned by Welder, but that It is not chicken blood as Welder claimed. Welder's one queer statement is that if he gets out "they" will get him with a machine gun. attack, or else slipped under the I tractor In some manner while it' wt% running.

When it was discovered that the snmc crew was working in Mason City, Mrs. William Myers of Algona, one of the victims, signed a warrant for Mauk's arrest.

They A school girl argument over an electric Iron has resulted in the dls- nppearnnce of Margaret Helen Miller. 14, who has been staying at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jess Speraw in Algona, for the past six years. The girl disappeared from the Speraw home Sunday, after an argument with the two Speraw daughters, Laura and Beulah. Margaret was dressed in blue overalls an3 a rose colored sweater, and so far as anybody knows, had no money and no extra bundles of clothing. Girl* in Argument Sunday afternoon, Margaret and Beulah were each using an iron. Laura, In haste to get ready for the high school baccalaureate service as a graduating senior, wanted to use the Iron that Margaret had. The girls engaged In an argument, and Margaret, angry, left the house Immediately.

All the ordinary heeler wants for his services is a small official job and accompanying perquisites. If his party stays out of power too long, he grows discouraged, seeks other livelihood; if his party wind too often and too easily, party generals, captains and lieutenants come to believe that they themselves achieved the victories, forget the rear-rank privates who did the actual fighting. For these reasons Walter L. Williams, a minor clerk in the U 8. Engineer's office and one time wardheeler in South Philadelphia's "Little Ital/', last week in Washington proposed to build up a regular heeler's union, with due*, locals, organizers and perhaps eventual affiliation with either the American Federation of Labor or the Committee for Indu;trUl O'g:mi7.a- Uon. Particularly incensed at ward leaders, the only machine men who know the precinct workers' names and the only ones though whom they can do business with the higher-ups, Organizer Williams cried: "We believe we can save the New Deal from the despotism of these petty party chieftains. They're ensconced now. They feel they're settled. There's no more liberality. You can't even get in to nee some of them."

Last week the mother noticed the boy did not seem to have any use of the left hand or arm, and while lying in his bed playing would flourish only the right hand. She watched him for a day or so. and finally she noticed a swelling of the arm between the wrist and elbow. She called a doctor, and the child was taken to Mercy hospital at Fort Dodge where he Is at the present time. It was found upon an x-ray examination that infection of the bone was evident. The arm was operated upon, the bones scraped, and just what the result will be remains to be seen. Mr. and Mrs. Lnr«en are unable to form any idea ns to how this strange occurrence took place.
