Agricultural Adjustment MRS, ROBINSON IDENTIFIES TWO AS TORTURERS Reynolds and Davis Are Held; Martin Released. Nelsi Davis and Pearl Reynolds, arrested three weeks ago following ithe terror-robbery attempt at the C. C. Robinson home east of town, were bound to the grand jury Monday afternoon by Justice H. B. JOS. BLOOM TELLS OF LIFE INJUSSIA, U. S. Jos. Bloom gave a story of hia life at the Kiwanis olub last Thursday. He was (born in Russia, near Odessa. His father came to the United States first, locating at Fairmont, and six months later sent for the family. Just as they had sold their household goods, and were en route out of the country the .Russia-Japan war started, and they had to (bribe their way into Austria, where they were given a nominal fine for coming in without passports. They finally got to Liverpool after long waits, and found that their tickets had been sent to their old home in Russia. They had to wait several weeks till the tickets got to Liverpool.

(Later they went to This county meeting is expected o line up a local plan for the tate policy that would get the est returns to farmers interested n this part of agriculture. At the ounty meeting a delegate will be hosen to represent Kossuth at the tate meeting next week Wednesday it Des Moines. Last week in Des (Moines 100 armera and beef producers held n informal discussion and issued he call for the statewide meeting next week. Because the state corn-hog committee thad a statewide organization the Ibeef producers asked Chairman R. M. Evans to use his 'ieldmen to institute the local beef meetings, says Willard Edwards, of iumboldt, fieldman for Kossuth, Webster, and Humboldt counties. Farmers who raise beef cattle r or breeding purposes, or who feed cattle should attend the county meeting and take a part in the discussions. Last year (beef cattle iroduction was the largest in the listory of the world, and with beef at present not a basic industry, ihere is a possibility of a serious further overproduction which will mean a loss to cattlemen greater than has been experienced in the past unless steps to plan a program are taken. * Academy Loses in First Round of Fort Dodge Meet iSt. (Cecelia's Academy was eliminated in the first round from the Sioux City diocese basketball tournament held at Fort Dodge Tuesday and yesterday.

Officers were notified and iround midnight Reynolds, Davis ind Martin were arrested when heir Buick car stalled on State street. The trio had been drinking. Ef- 'orts were made then to connect them with the robbery attempt, but when evidence was not forthcoming because of the illness of (Mr. Robinson, who died a week ago as the result of the attack, the trio was taken before a justice and sentenced after a trial to 15 days in jail for drunkenness. The 15-day sentence expired Monday, and in the meantime officers 'had collected additional evidence and Mrs. (Rolbinson was recovered sufficiently to come to the hearing and testify. There has been some question as to whether the men were actually implicated in the crime, which they have_ steadfastly denied. Long criminal records on Reynolds and Davis, however, and possible knowledge of a sum of money supposedly inherited (by Mrs. Robinson led to the further investigation. Mr. Robinson before he was stricken with a 'heart 'attack, partially identified Reynolds, it is reported.
