Their car collided with a machine driven by Dorothy S.

Two Bancroft men were injured Thursday in a one-car crash six miles south of Armstrong on highway 44 as they were returning from a trip to California. Injured were: Thues Lee Abbas, 28, with a broken hose, broken breastbone and broken shoulder plus a mild jack fracture. Bill Vogei, 26, mild back fracture.

The car, traveling south, wen 1 into the east ditch and traveled 430 feet until il hit a crossroad embankment and flipped, end over-end, coming to rest on it side in the ditch. The two men were found by Joe Sjoblom, Armstrong farmer, about 3:20 a.ir Two burglaries on Friday at Algona cafes The Algona police department charges were filed by investigating officers Harry Hansen, Armstrong police chief, and an Estherville deputy sheriff. Cylinder man candidate for Iowa House Seek te upset selections by the commission A petition for a writ of cesr- tiorari was signed by Judge Jos. P. Hand, Emmetsburg, Friday on a petition attacking the commission that nominated two men as candidates for appointment as judge to succeed Judge Fred M. Hudson, who has resigned. Judge Hand set next Friday as the date for hearing on the petition. The commission met ; Thursday in the courthouse and selected Murray S. Underwood, Spencer, and Joseph L. Hanson, Emmetsburg, as nominees. This evidently aid not meet with the approval of five of the eleven members of the commission. THESE FIVE filed the petition for the writ, and are R. B. Waller, Algona; Eugene Ford, Emmetsburg; Wallace E. Bjornstad, Spencer; Kenneth Rohlk, Storm jake; and Dr. Wm. A. Bois of Esther ville. '..',.-. Defendants arc Judge G. W. Stillman and D. C. Hutchison, of Algona; Wm. O. Anderson, Estherville; Alden D. Avery, Spencer; Wendell T. Edson, Storm Lake; R. L. Hudson, Pocahontas. The defendants, are all attorneys. The plaintiffs are not attorneys but were named by Governor Hughes to the'nominating commission when the new judicial reform bill .went into effect. The new law was supposed to take politics out of the selection of judges. The petition asks that the action of the commission be declared null and void because the nominees "did not receive the vote of the majority of full statutory number of commission- EUGENE (Gene) Sweeney, Cy Under grocer, announced as a candidate for the democratic nomination for state, representa tive of Emmet-Palo Alto coun MIC lYuviugaii *n».».....~. investigated two breaking andhj es Sept. 6.

After his discharge he operated a grocery store at Bradgate from 1946 to 1949 when he moved to Cylinder. He has had the store at Cylinder until this July 1, when he sold it to Gilbert Saxton, Ringsted. He married the former Gayle ers." It is evident from the petition the plaintiffs in the action seek to preclude Judge Stillman from voting. This would probably result in a tie vote. The senior judge in the district is named by law as the presiding member of the commission. The question raised by the plaintiffs is whether he is a voting member. The defendants probably say it would oe ridiculous to have a man as a presiding officer without a vote, even in case of a tie. WHILE selection of a judge is supposed to be on a non-partisan basis as far as party politics is concerned, the political question has been raised. It lias been noted that Gov. Hughes, when he has a choice between a democrat and a republican, has named the democrat in past imilar situations. Attorneys for the plaintiffs is the law firm of Linnan, Lynch nd Straub. No attorneys as yet lave been named to represent he defendants, who are all at- orneys. The constitutional amendment which set up the judicial nom- nating process says: "The district judge of such district who is senior in length of service shall also be a member of such commission and shall be its chairman."
