***MARCH TIME *•».•. s. mow. ASHINQTON: Although 'three- qoarters of the seats in the U. S. S«J«e are usually vacant, on roll caHA last week as many as 80 of the 99 Senators appeared personally to vote, and senior members of the majority party, led by the Administration's own floor leader, were fighting one of the Administration's o*n bills—the $1,500,000,000 Relief . bill for fiscal 1938. In the House vigorous attempts WefB made to attach earmarking amendments to provide pork for the constituents of various Congressmen. In the Senate dapper James F. Byrnes, long-rated a close political friend of Franklin Roosevelt, presented tables to show that the financial condition of states and cities had materially improved since 1933, proposed an amendment (sponsored by the Appropriations Committee) requiring that no Work Relief projects be undertaken unless the local communities concerned paid 40% of the cost of the projects, or certified tu Relief Administrator Hopkins' satisfaction that they were not financially able to contribute so.much. Thus, although an impoverished community could still get relief with the Federal Government providing 100% of its cost, a , moral brake would be placed on spending. To this the President retorted that it was unfair to make communities take a "pauper's oath" to get relief grants. Several days later Leader Joseph T. Robinson proposed a compro- mlM:tTo reduce the local contribution requirement from 40% to 25«t, omit thi«'"pauper'»oth", place on the president the responsibility for waiving the 25% requirement for communities unable to 'meet it. When Administration forces under Kentucky's Senator Allen W. Barkley rallied to oppose this modified restriction on relief spending, Senator Robinson took up the cudgels anew: "Gentlemen may laugh about a $36,000,000,000 debt hanging over the Treasury of the United States if they wish to, but with all my refined and expanded sense of humor I find it impossible to laugh about such a thing . . . Have we come to countenance indifference, Inck of diligence, total lack of thrift and energy? ..." When the Relief bill went to Congress a group of staunch Democratic Senators, among them Senator Robinson, went to the White House and said flatly that relief spending had to be reduced—so flatly that Franklin Roosevelt listened and gave assurance. But when the roll calls were taken, the Byrnes amendment was defeated S8 to 25, the Robinson amendment 49 to 34—Democratic stalwarts like Harrison, Glass, Byrnes. Plttman. Bankhead, Bailey, Conally, Clark and Russell supporting Joseph T. Robinson instead of Franklin D. Koosevelt. TORICAL DEFT, f-t-rr Established 1865 ALOONA. IOWA, THURSDAY. JULY 1.

Into Secretary Wallace's office last week marched a delegation, headed by Democratic Senate Leader Joseph T.

LOVED AND HATED— NEW YORK: Arriving in New Yeck hut week, self-exiled German Author Emll Ludwig declared: "To understand a man best one must talk to his most recently divorced wife. I hope Mrs. Roosevelt won't misunderstand that. And so I shall talk to some men, 'Brain Trusters', perhaps, who were associated with htm until recently." Author Lud- wlg announced that, just as he had written a life of Napoleon "without battles", he intended to write a biography of Franklin Roosevelt "without tAxea." Added be : "It Is difficult to write about such a great character who is leading silent revolution. He U the most loved and most hated man In the U. 8. It will be the most dangerous book I have ever written."

SUGGEST FOX SEASON TO REPLACE PHEASANT SEASON H. M. Smith, one of the leading conservationists of this section, has advanced the idea that sportsmen could have about as muck fun In an open fox season as they could in a pheasant season. He advanced the idea that an open season on foxes be declared, and a closed one on pheasant this fall, and that the hunters from southern Iowa be Invited to come up into the northern part of the state for a gigantic round-up of foxes. BURT GROUP ALSO WINDS UP CROW-FOX HUNT Burt: The Burt conservation league unit met Monday evening in the Legion Hall, and the north side team with 600 points defeated the south side team, which had 200 points.

CREAM THIEVERY BELIEVED ENDED WITH 4 ARRESTS A series of petty thievery of cream from the Burt and Bancroft vicinity was believed cleared up by county officials this week with arrest of four men. The four, Julius and Edward Juchem of Bancroft, Emil Berger of Bancroft, and Raymond Hentges of Algona, are in the Kossuth jail. They said they would be willing to stay in jail several days and think over whether or not to plead guilty. They Indicated Tuesday they would plead guilty without a preliminary hearing or other legal procedure. Thefts of cream had been reported from the Lovstad Bros, farm near Burt, from Henry Juchem, a relative of the Juchema in jail, at the John Kelderscheldt farm and the Joe Reiter farm. Some of the cream was found to have been sold at Swift's plant here, at the Algona produce and some at Whlttemore. Men at the plants remembered that when the cream was brought in, the names of Nemmers and Juchem were given, and that clue led to the discovery of the quartet. The first three were arrested in a parked car here, and Hentges was taken at his home.

Boy. 10 Years Old, Sneaks Out To Give Town First Alarm Of Robbery First Bank Robbery In State This Year; Bandits Nervous, Overlook Cash on Counter; One Chases Bank President The Farmers' State Bunk of Whittemore, Iowa, was robbed of be- iwoen SI.000 and $1.200 in cash, by two nrmcd and unrnnsked bandits, Wednesday morning at 10:20 o'clock. In the bank at the time were Frank Bestenlehner, president. John LJhlenhake, cashier, and Annette Bcatenlehner of thn bank force, and Adam Luchsinger. A customer, and Corwin Wilson, aged 10. who had gone to the bank to get change for the local telephone office. At last reports the bandits had not been seen since leaving Whil- emore. They were driving a 1937 Ford coach, and headed out of Whittemore east toward Algona, on old highway 18. That they turned from old highway 18 within n few miles of Wbittemore\is a known fact Two Algona men, driving to Whittemore Immediately after the alarm was received In the sheriffs office, took old highway 18, and saw no trace on the road of a car answering the bandit machine's description. RELIEVED AMATEURS AT GAME; OVERLOOKED Mt'CH MONEY That the bandits were amateurs was the opinion of officials after getting dctailn of the robbery. The two men entered the bank. Besten- ehner was just beginning to make change for the little Wilson boy. Uhenlhake was in the back room with $500 in large bills in his hand, which he wns goinS to bring to Algona to have changed into one dollar Jills. Miss Bestenlehner was behind the cage and Luchsinger was in a jack room, preparing to transact business. One bandit poked his gun through the cage at Bestenlohner with a command to throw up his hands. The second bandit vaulted over the cage, behind the counter. Bestenlehner turned and darted through a rear door, outside. One bandit chased him out, and Bestenlehner lost his footing, rolling to the ground. The bandit cursed him, and told him to stay there, then jumped into the machine behind the wheel. The second bandit, In the meantime, dashed behind the counter, scooped up a handful of the large bills in the change drawer and turned to leave. In the meantime, Uhlenhake, coming from the back room, saw something was wrong, nnd started out the front door. The bandit Inside the bank jammed a gun into his ribs saying: "You —— -• put your hands up or you'll get It." Uhlenhake complied. The second bandit then went out the door, sending Tom Carmody's hands Into the air, as the latter wns entering the bank from the post office across the street. ' Change and bills lying on the counter were not touched; and the bandits overlooked some of the money in the drawer. Uhlenhake later found the $500 on the edge of a table, where he had laid it just before going into the front part of the bank. YOUNGSTER PROVES HERO; SN15AKS OUT TO GIVE ALARM Corwin Wilson, 10 year old son of Mrs. John H. Wilson, proved something of a hero. While the bandlta were concentrating on the adults, Corwin grabbed toe $5 bill he had gone in to have changed, and sneak* ed out the front doo?. He went to WpklMim'* Cafe, where he toW* - '' - " - " W " -* «JiJvdM«^f|fllM!«* **^* ^SS^WM-J^aPSid htaa-'j out of town. Charles Bormann, in Seeman's pool hall shortly before the robbery, said that two men who seemed to answer the description of the bandits, had been in the pool hall for a glass of beer. He said one was about six feet tall, and the other a trifle shorter. Bank officials described the men as lightly shorter than that, nnd said both wore slouch hats over their fares, but no masks, and both were unshaven and dirty looking. Bill Hlggins, Whittemore Champion editor in the building right next to the bank, wn.s just starting his final press run when the robbery news came in. Needless to say, The Whittcmore Champion front page was lurriedly made over this week. SEVERAL SEE BANDIT CAR: NOBODY (JETS LICENSE NUMBER Several persons saw the bandit machine, hut nobody seemed to have obtained the license number, although some one ventured that it looked ike No. 97. If that is true, the machine is from Sioux City. J. H. Stelpflug. a salesman who has been working In the^Whlttemore vicinity, was just across the street. He saw the bandits come out, but It all happened so fast he did not realize a robbery was in progress. Henry Frombach also saw one of the bandits who came out the 'ront door, gun still in hand. The time lock on the bank vault had been Bet a scant 20 minutes be- 'ore, but the robbers paid no attention, and didn't even ask about the vault. STATEWIDE ALARM STARTS MANHUNT FOR BANDITS State highway patrolmen, immediately titter the alarm was given, began a concentration on Whittemore. Patrolman West from Algona was one of the first on the scene. Sheriff Casey Loss and Deputy Cogley were on hand rounding up clews and descriptions, and state agents were rninediately notified. A stale-wide police radio alarm was also immediately broadcast. Mr. Bestenlehner at first thought the loss was about $800. but a nore accurate check latter in the day revealed the bandits had taken several hundred dollars more than at first believed. Sheriff Casey Loss, recalling that Tom Merryman. 18-year-old boy just sentenced to the reformatory for robbing a local store, hald told a story of having been connected with a young Sioux City gang of desperados, is working on the possibility that the Merryman boy's story may have been truthful. If so. it should give local and state authorities something to work on. Tliis is the first bank robbery in Iowa in 1937.

The fire was checked before a great amount of damage was done, but quite a holt- was burned in the roof. Just how the lire started is not known, but they had burned some waste paper in the furnace a couple of hours before and probably a spark fell on and ignited the roof or the chimney was defective. Mrs. FUchuiaiin happened to go into the yard and smelted the fire and on investigating saw flames rising from near the chimney. Its prompt discovery probably prevented a serious lire.
