DECEMBER 10, 1931 ^ ^u^ ASSAIIJSfMMSlSOOT^^TlNCE PRESIDENT HOOVER spent, a quiet Thanksgiving day, going to church in the morning.—Associated Press. npui >-•-,'' o— o A ND HERE I HAD worried for weeks about how Herbert would use his time on turkey day. T was afraid he would want to play leap frog on the White House lawn, or .would demand that he .shoot a bunch of fire crackers, or even that he •might want to pull a hig party and :have hula dancers do their stuff on the front steps. I had worried as to whether he'd want to go coon hunt-Ing or attend a prize fight. But all . my worries came to naught. Herbert ran true, to form and spent a "quiet 1 flay including the time he attendee church. My faith In and respect for Herhort therefore have not been shattered. I don't know how «(|nlet" be was. Perhaps ho gave all ordwn In whispers. 1'erhapn lie ordered silencers on everything which might toncl Jo Irritate tlio auditory nerves. May. hap even the radio was shut off. Perhaps the doors of the While House- were closed to the world no that the day might be absolute In quiet. Ite that as It may Our president spent a quiet day. YOUTH GIVEN YEAR IN PEN FOR SHOOTING Hvert Weber, youth near Forest City, was sentenced to a year in the penitentiary at Forest City last week Wednesday on a charge-of an attempt to murder Marshal O. l>. Montgomery, 'former Algonian, who attempted to arrest him and two companion. 1 *. Sentence was pronounced by Judge J. .T. Clark, of Mason City, father of the Rev. Fred J. Clark, of the Algona Congregational churoh. Judge Clark, In pronouncing the sentence, said that he would recommend Weber's release to tho board ;of parole after h o liiul served six "months, provided that his record was clear. Mr. Montgomery is a brother-in- law of \V. A. Dutton. and formerly farmed the David King farm west of town. They alsn lived near Hurt at one time, and are well-known throughout the county; He was shut, but not seriously wounded •when lie attempted to 'arrest three youths, of which Weber \vns one, in a <-ar in 'Forest City. • The Forest City Summit gives the following particulars of the trial: Jury Out Several Hours. ' The jury which tried Weber the charge of attempt to commit murder reached its verdict ot guilty of assault with intent to do great bodily injury after a few hours deliberation. The state asked that the jurj find the defendant guilty of the major offense charged, that of as sa.ult with intent to commit murder. The next offense of which Webor could bo found guilty was assault with intent to commit manslaughter. The offense of which he was found guilty by the jury was the third offense of which he could be convicted and was a minor charge because of the requirements of the law. The penalty for the crime of which he was convicted gave the judge the option of a $500 fine, or a year in the county jail or a year in the penitentiary. Attorney Tie- gan, \vho made Weber's defense, appeared before the court Wednesday and asked that the boy be paroled from the bench rather than be sent to the reformatory. Upon being questioned by the court the county attorney recommended that Weber be sent to the reformatory rather than the county jail because of the conditions at the county jail. Weber received his sentence with the stoic- m that marked his demeanor iroughout most of the trial. While stening to Judge Clark's lecture fol- m'ing the sentence, a few tears fill- d his eyes. Once before during the rial at the time the defense attor ey was making his plea, Webei lied tears. When questioned by udge Clark before the sentence vas imposed Weber stated "We go Bancroft Man Kitted by Shower of Corn Bancroft, Dec. 8—Isudore Mousel was crushed and Instantly killed Friday afternoon at 3:30, when a brace broke In a 'barn and released a -torrent j>f corn from the second floor.

Evert then stopped pointing his gun at the sheriff and went over to where Alvin -and Montgomery were struggling on the ground. At this point the testimony of the state and the defense differed. The sheriff and deputy stated that Evert struck Montgomery twice on the head with the butt of the gun. Evert testified that lie grabbed Montgomery by the coat collar and jerked back twice, and then ran for the car.
