Represen tatlon is based on one delegate for each 40 votes cast for Governor Turner in 1930, and accordingly there will be 119 delegates. The main business of the conven- tion''will be to choose 12 delegates to a state convention at ,Des Moines March 22. It is presumed that the delegation will either be Instructed for President Hoover or that no strings will be tied to it. The Des Moines convention's main business will be to name delegates to a an- tlonal convention at Chicago June 14. Resolutions Plunned. Resolutions will probably be adopted complimentary to President Hoover, Governor Turner, Senator Dickinson, Congressman Gllchrlst, and Senator Geo. W. Patterson. R. S.

Not much in the line of excitement is expected at the convention. A second convention following the primaries in June will prove a big attraction, provided nominations in all county offices are not made at the primaries. If the leading candidate for an office in any contest gund : the riftg 15 minutes or; more, and when it was too tired to resist, the chief, butcher killed him ; amid howls of thousands watching. There is no sport for an Amerlc'ari in. such a spectacle, rather disgust. The .Haggards also had an' airplane ^rip, in Texas, the first either had taken. Mr. Haggard said he enjoyed the experience, ; but could not avoid a feeling of help'lessness In case -anything happened. The change In the weather from 85 degrees at San Antonio to below zero In a few hours during the train-ride home came as a shock The Haggards -had become accustomed to'the warm, sunshiny days in Texas and this was their first taste of winter since they' left home At Kansas City their train ran into a slushy snowstorm, and thence to Algona the cold increased. This was iMr. Haggard's first .vacation from his duties on the Upper- Des Molnes-Republican in a dozen years more or less, b(jt at that in Mr. Berning, of Cedar Rapids. Mr. Richardson and his son Max, who attended the funeral, returned immediately following the services.
