•M Established 1865 ALOONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, AUGUST 5,1937 Ten Pages VOL. 35.—NO. 31 DftAOtBSUEWASHINGTON: Thomas R. Marshall of North Manchester, Ind., who 90 years ago was not only Vice President of the U. 8. but also the Will Rogers of the era, was the •author of a brief tale: "Once upon la time there were two brothers. ' One went to sea. The other was ' elected Vice President Neither • was heard from again." But Tom Marshall did not live M h«ar about Vice-Presldent John • Nance darner, who returned from a . Vacation in Texas to take charge Of the the difficult situation arising from a Congressional deadlock «n Franklin Roosevelt's Supreme •-• Court: BUI. Convinced that the < Iflttwa* doomed to defeat and that • -farther efforts to force the Issue : w^mid Irrevocably split the Democratic party, methodical Jack Garner called on the president, conferred with Senate group*, finally told Senate Opposition Leader Burton K. Wheeler to write his own court bill. Th« fight was over. In a Judiciary Committee session next morning the bill was written , .In memorandum form:—No change , • in the Supreme Court; no proctor to supervise the allotment of judges in the court*; no roving judges; direct appeal to the Supreme Court in case* where the constitutionality of laws Is questioned; authority for the attorney general to argue the government'* aide In such cases 6ven if the Government Is not dlr- " dotly a party to the Issue; assignment of Judge* by the senior circuit judges; new Judges on the basis of need, not age. Still wary of trickery, however, 'the opposition also stipulated that the original Court Bill be sent back to committee and killed for this session, that the new bill be added aa an amendment to a minor court bill already passed by the Hotue— thus preventing Administration strength In the House from changing It back to the form the President wanted. When Senator Logan moved to recommit the defeated bill, of which he had been sponsor, only 20 last- ditch fighters voted against htm. Seventy other Senators promptly jumped into the breach provided for them by John Garner, thus settling in an hour a profitless wrangle that had played havoc with public affairs for nearly six months.

S. Kinsey, and County Attorney L. A. Winkel, will leave Friday morning for Des Molnes to protest vigorously against the Increase In farm land assessed valuation for Kossuth county. The State Board of Assessment and Review, several days ago, stated that state taxes in 88 counties, mostly In northern Iowa, would be Increased. Kossuth was scheduled to have a valuation increase of 20 per cent. 5 Million Boost Valuation Auditor Kinsey stated that the Increase of £0 percent, as demanded by the state board, would increase the valuation of farm lands by some $5,023,719 and that Kossuth farmers would be paying on an average of $65.34 per acre valuation. In using the assumed actual value of lands in Kossuth county, $85 per acre (sale price) or 60 percent assessed valuation of $43.60, per acre, the land owners would be paying on a valuation of $12.50 per acre In excess of a fair and proper valuation. Says No. Iowa Too Low Louis E. Roddewig, board chairman at Des Molnes, declared that the northern Iowa changes meant the property In many places of the state had been assessed at too low nn average. Similarly, he said, southern Iowa averages had been too high. Auditor Kinsey said that in effect, if the valuation increase becomes final, land owners of Kossuth county would be required to pay approximately $31.80 per $1,000 of a«- sessed valuation more than has th. ea*e, and. that to. totol, Is 12 Feet, 3% Inches] Tallest Corn in County?

Lewis' United Mine Workers against Clover Fork Coal Co. in Kltts, Ky.:-An old story to the National Labor Relations Board was the word- Ing of one section of the complaint —alleged employment of "armed guards, notorious criminals, gun- thugs commissioned a* deputy sheriff* and other irresponsble ruffians for the express purpose of threatening, Intimidating and coercing Its employees." But a new wrinkle in unfair labor practice was contained in the complaint • that the company wa* luring good unionists away from union meeting* with a kind of entertainment the union could not offer. The coal ' company, chatged the United Miners, "did procure lewd and Immoral women to perform free, indecent exhibitions known as *trlp and tease dance*, and to otherwise engage in gratuitous, licentious conduct at times when union meetings were scheduled for the purpose of enticing It* employees from attending »uch meetings." "Strip-teas*!" exploded Clover Fork'* Secretary-Treasurer A. F. Whltfteld. "We deny that. Th* company has been observing the Wagner Labor Relations Act to the letter."

Algona has been having an up and down season, but then Des Molnes has been somewhat erratic also, and in view of the fact that the Kansas City Monarcha, whom Algona defeated, in turn defeated Des Moinea, it looks aa though a real battle might be on tap. Phil Kohlhaas states that the high school football bleacher section will be moved to the baseball park, and there will be a seating capacity of 1,000 for this game. And best of all, admission prices for the gome will remain the same aa they have been during the season.
