The r, MARCH TOUB_ Sitting in his 1™* cream an y eltow Plymouth cab in front of Washington's Dodge Hotel on June 1, Driver Joseph N. Carnaggio spied Mr. and Mrs. Francis J. Smith of Watford, England, coming down the steps. How does one go about see- Ing the U. S.?" asked Mr. Smith. Driver Carnaggio said that a good way to begin was a tour of Washington for $5. J the two-hour trip Carnaggio interspersed his selght-seclng lecture with many a remark about the beauties of near-by Virginia easily sold the Smiths on the Idea of a $75 trip throifgh that statp. Three ^ Weeks Ifjej the trio turned up in ^Manhattan, having been to Mt. Ver- Mon, Arlington, Yorktown, Jamestown, Charlottesvllle, over the Skyline Drive to Gettysburg, Pa., then north through Harrlsburg to Montreal, Ottawa, then south n.gain through Lake Placid, Albany, Saratoga Springs, Mirror Lake and West Point. For their next taxi odyssey the Smith paid a 25c-a-mile rate and Carnagglo's hotel expenses, put up $1,000 bond to permit the cab to enter Canada, followed Carnaggio'a suggestion to detour and see the Dfonne Quintuplets. A week later Carnaggio put them on the liner "Berengaria" and Mr. Smith peeled off $625 plus a bottle of Mischief f^ptrtume, which he manufactures. On the trip the Smiths lost a Volgt- Tander camera, and to show his , thanks, Driver Carnaggio bought a new one for $30, mailed It to England. Then he headed back to Washington, where he cashed in once more by charging news' photographers to take his picture. Said he for nothing: "They hac one of the best times an Englishman ever had in America... They're coming back in a couple of months with their son and daughter. Tm going to take them to Yelowstone and all out west on that trip." EDITING JOBWASHINGTON: The Child Labor Amendment proposed In 1924 had been ratified by only six states prior to the election of Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1032. Then, with the president as its big champion, 22 more states ratified It during the next four years. But with eight ratifications still required before it becomes part of the Constitution, the 1924 Child Labor Amendment came to a standstill. Stealing a march on the New Deal, Michigan's Senator Arthur Hendrick Vandenberg therefore drafted a new child labor amendment which the Senate Judiciary Committee last week not only endorsed unanimously but believed could be speedily ratified. After finding out the objections of those opposed to the 1924 proposal, which read: "The Con- gr*M shall have the power to limit, - »: rttfulat* nnd probiMt.tha^tehor bf persons under 18 years of age." "Senator Vandenberg edited the test to read: "The Congress shall have power to limit and prohibit the.em- ployment for hire of person under 16 years of age." Thus were eliminated the words "regulate", which was too elastic and led people to fear it might be stretched to mean anything a future administration might wish, and . "labor", which the Catholic church be stretched to include jurisdiction over pupils in its parochial schools "Employment for hire" was substituted to outlaw most of the worst forms of child labor without alarm- Ing farmers who expect their children to do chores on the farm. Finally Senator Vandenberg lowered the age limit two years to answer the objection of those who maintained that boys and girls of 16 and 17 were really not children. The Judiciary Committee approced all this and added a fourth change: a provision requiring the states to pass upon the new proposal by convention within seven years, the same provision which got the repeal amendment acted on within ten months. Said Senator Vandenberg: "Now It's up to the Administration. I've done all I can do. If they want to do something about child labor, here's their chance." SEA BURIAL- NEW YORK: Unknown to most voyagers, every big oceon liner carries a couple of coffins and ship's doctors are qualified embalmers. While ship captains have the right to order burial of bodies at sea, such is a non-sailor's horror of this type of burial that the bodies of persons dying aboard ship today are usually embalmed and returned to authorities at the decedent's home port. Returning to the U. S. on the "He de France" two years ago, devout Danvres, Mass., school Principal Elizabeth Ann Ahearn died of a stroke while in her bath-tub, was not discovered until 14 hours later.

The trio admitted In their testimony at the preliminary hearing that they had been guilty of steal- Ing cream from several farms in the Burl-Bancroft vicinity, and selling it, but curiously enough indicated that they would plead not guilty to the charges against them. They said they were drunk at the time the deed was done. County Attorney L. A. Winkel said the boys evidently had a change of heart after they talked to A. O. Hopkins, who is now In jail for failure to pay support money to the mother of a child born out of wedlock at Titonka. Hopkins advised the boys in legal matters, so they decided to go through a preliminary •tearing instead of entering immediate pleas of guilty. Bond for Julius Juchem and Hentges was fixed at $1,500 and for Edward Juchem at $1,000. None of the* defendants had an attorney.

Harvey Ingham, Early Editor of Upper Des Moines, Highly Honored Last Week by 600 At Banquet SWEA CITY FIRM VICTIM OF CHECK ARTIST, SAT'DAY Swea City: A check artist who was operating In town Saturday night is being sought by local officers. The man, who was unknown here, attempted to purchase automobile parts from a local garage-offering a check in payment. The check, drawn for about thirty dollars, was signed "Howard Hansen.' On benig questioned, the man claimed that Hansen was the name of a farmer living two miles south ol Seneca. However, the garage declined to accept the cheek, and the fellow left, claiming he would cash it where he was known and would then return for the merchandise. A similar attempt at another business house failed, after which the individual went to an implement firm, purchased some articles and tendered the check. Satisfied with his plausible stury, the implement dealer accepted the check and gave tiim $26 in change. The bearer indorsed the check with an almost almost illegible signature resembling •Mitchell." So far as can be determined there is no Howard Hansen living south of Seneca. Bancroft Priest Struck By Ball Fenton: Father Robert Quinn of Sioux City, who visited the E. C.

Fractures Knee Whitlemore: Arnold KftlK'sun of West Bund hud the misfortune to fracture his right knee wliilu playing baseball here Monday. MYSTERYDEATH AT LUVERNE IS , STILLWIDEOPEN Coroner's Jury Holds Verdict Until Further Investigation STOMACH ANALYSIS NOW BEING MADE Was Walter W. Block, found dead at LuVerne In a burning barn on his father's farm fast Monday, a victim of foul play, or did he die from suffocation and burns as a result of the fire? Until State Agents Ross Graham " nnd S. R. Quealy definitely know the answer to that question, they stated Thursday that they would stay on the Kossuth county case. Peculiar Angles The state agents admitted that the youth's death had many peculiar angles which must be solved before a definite answer to the many questions involved can be reached. Funeral services for the 28-year- old mnn were held Wednesday afternoon nt LuVerne, with Rev. Wittenberg preaching the funeral sermon. A large crowd attended the services. And in the meantime, conjecture ns to the case was one of the com- non topics of discussion, especially n the LuVerne vicinity. Stomach At Iowa City Sheriff Casey Loss nnd Marshal Frank Green of Algona took the youth's stomach to Iowa City, Wed- nesdny, where state chemists are examining the contents. They expected to have a report ready some time today, Friday. Officials would not sny what they expected to find ns a n result of the stomach analysis' Dr. M. G. Bourne, called into the cnse to make n medical examination of the body, reported that no bruises or signs of violence were evident on the skull or body of Block. Heavy Growth of Beard One of the angles that seems most puzzling about the case, County Attorney L. A. Wiukel itated, wa* the fnct that Block, a mnn who generally shiived at least three times a week, had n growth of benrd on his face that must hnve been an accum- mulutlon of at least two weeks. Wlnkel nskeil why Block had not shaved; was it because he had been held captive, and unable to do so? Thursday afternoon. State Agents Graham and Quealy had planned to go back to LuVerne, and begin a systematic weeding out of facts. They expected to interview Max Block, father of the young man, \Vus Block Hiding* Another angle brought up by officials Is the possibility that Block, for some reason or other, might have been in hiding. He had not t been seen for a week and a half prior to the discovery of his body in the fire. So far as Is known, the young man who had been working on the Emil Anderson farm, near LuVerne, had not been in bad company. He was known to drink, but not to excess. The last time Walter was seen alive was about a week and a half before the fire, when his 14-year-old brother, Lewis, said he saw Walter in the yard of the Block home. Walter did not go in the house, however. Max Block said he had not seen his son for several months Had $1,000 Insurance The dead man had an insurance policy for $1,000, taken out several months ago, with a double indemnity clause Block's own mother is dead, and it was stated that his stepmother had been named as beneficiary. Mrs. Max Block is herself seriously ill, having suffered a stroke last Sunday, and is still unwaare of the tragedy in her own yard.
