DECLARES Old Age Pension Law NRA Bill and Sales Tax Endorsed. By A. II. Bonnstetter. Some time ago an editorial appeared in the Advance which criti- cised my action on the old age pension bill. As I recall the-article, in invitation was extended to jus- ify my attitude. In a later edition, and also in the edition of April 12, articles _ -appeared which accused me of partisan voting because tha new tax bill, the N. 'R. A. bill, and the old age pension bill got my support. The article of April 12 further stated that I am entertaining ipeakership aspirations and sug- ;ests *hat this accounts for my 'party regularity." In other words, you wish to convey to your readers and to my constituents the impression that I -sold out true representation because of a selfish personal ambition. At this time I wish to state that rour deductions relative to my ac,ion on the above mentioned meas- uures are false and therefore cannot go unchallenged. In your paper, as well as others' of Kossuth county, appeared weekly letters in wihich my attitude ort ;he sales tax was clearly stated. Politics in the Senate. You will recall <tihat tax revision in the senate had developed an atmosphere of politics. The.se .pol- itios were not all of the democratic or republican variety. Some of these were what I term "glory hound" politics, and the gentlemen who indulged in them endeavored to get their names identified with various tax measures under an authorship or amendments. This they did to glorify themselves to the people of the state in order! to advance their political aspirations. However, I do not wish to say that all authors of bills or amendments on tax revision acted in this spirit—far from it. But I do say that a few senators employed such tactics: for tflieir own political reasons_ and that this influenced tax revision as well as contributed very materially to the length of the session. History of Interim Bill. When the interim committee bill was up for consideration for tha first time in the senate it was amended a number of times, which greatly improved it.

SUMMER HAS ARRIVED; MERCIHES TO 87 Temperatures the past week began to show the advanced spring season. Monday the mercury reached a high for the year, when it registered 87 degrees. Last week Wednesday and Friday mornings, however, there was still freezing weather, at night, when the mercury registered 24 and 26 degrees, respectively. No rain' has fallen, and drought conditions are gradually becoming more serious. Trees and the grass have become, much greener with the warmer weather in spite of the lack gf rain. Another dust storm filled the sky Sunday, and strong winds still stir up some dust In the country, though since Sunday it had not been bad In town.

NEW HYDRANT USED FOB THE 1ST TIME IN BLAZE TUESDAY Fire Tuesday noon destroyed a house-on-wheels built on a truck body belonging to Clarence Woods. The house was tho size of a truck, and the fire caught from an oil stove on which the noon meal was being prepared. When the fire was discovered a six months baby was sleeping in the cabin, but it was got out in time. The cabin made a strong fire, and was ablaze 10 to 15 feet high when the firemen arrived. It was parked in a driveway between two houses on south Phillips where a crew has torn up the graveled road preparatory to paving on No. 160. The firemen after emptying 100 gallons of water in the fire truck attached a short length of hose to a new fire hydrant across the street, and then put the fire out in short order. Hydrants leading to the fairgrounds on that street are fed from mains on State, McGregor, and a main which runs south on Minnesota street past the fairgrounds and loops back to McGregor. Thus there was plenty of pressure. This was the first time the hydrant there had been used. It was installed by CWA workers last fall and winter. Mr. Woods drives one of the trucks for the paving crew, and Mrs. Woods is a daughter of the Richardsons, who run a hamburger shop here. Services at the South Cresco church are to be continued each Sunday, according to a report telephoned to the Advance. PAVING¥"EXPECTEO TO BEGINJIEXT WEEI Paving crews arrived last Thursday and work was begun immediately on ripping up the paving on State street from the Jones street corner to Phillips, and thence south to McGregor. A basket crane started the work of ripping up the paving at noon last Thursday, and that afternoon more than a block was done. Next day the work progressed more rapidly, and the entire stretch of seven blocks was done by Monday evening. At the same time workmen were preparing the graveled road from the McGregor corner to the fairgrounds, and yesterday the basket crane was "helping there to deepen the roadbed. Leveling off of the gravel bed for the paving and placing of forms is now being done on State, and it Is believed that pouring the concrete will begin early next week. Board to Pass on Gravel Projects The board of supervisors meets next week Thursday to hold hearings on graveling districts established under a 1934 secondary road program approved in February by the township trustees. Other business will also be considered, and the county old age pension board may be established at that time. Bills were allowed at the regular session of the board Tuesday. Twins fur Clapsuddles. Mr. and Mrs. H. D. Clapsaddle became parents of twins, a boy and a girl, at the Kossuth hospital Sunday morning at 10 o'clock. The girl, weight 8 pounds, has been named Jill Pritchard. and the boy, 7% pounds, has been named Jack Guy. It was reported yesterday Mrs. Clapsaddle and Jack and Jill were all doing well.

Frank Vayette, somewhat notor- ous Algomi character for some years, was bound to tho grand jury Monday by Mayor C. F. Specht as', the result of a drunken rampage in which Vayette wrecked the Bunkofske barber shop at the rear of the Behlmer Candy kitchen shortly after Sunday midnight. ^Vayette, known locally 'by the nickname Frankenstein, first broke open the rear door of State's cafe, which was hooked, and then ran; into the kitchen, where he grabbed a meat cleaver from a chopping block before Clarence Nordstrom, night cook had a chance to interfere. Uses Cleaver As Axe. Muttering wildly to himself, Vayette raced out the back door, cleaver in hand, and attacked the back door and the window in the barber shop. He smashed the glass and chopped away at window casing and sill till they were kindling. Then -he 'broke in the door, wrecked the front three windows, and drove the cleaver through the front door. Night Marshal H. S. Van Alstyne arrived at this moment, arrested Vayette in short order, and marched him to jail, where ihe spent the) rest of the night sobering up. "Frankenstein" had been in the •habit of sleeping in the 'Bunkofske shop, but because lie would get drunk and leave the place in dis 1 graceful condition Mr. Bunkofska told him he would have to sleep elsewihere. When Vayebte found the shop locked against him Sunday night he flew into a rage, and the attack on the 'Shop followed. He was heard to mutter something atbout being "turned out to sleep in the streets like a dog." Fighting "Two Other Men." Vayette claimed at the hearing next morning that it was two oth- r men who wrecked the sliop. He said he wanted the cleaver to protect himself, because they had been) throwing wood at him. He also declared that the other two men liacl quart jars of liquor. He said he did not know them. Mr. Nordstrom testified that ha looked out the restaurant window and saw Vayette doing the chopping at the back door and window of the barber shop. Suffers Severed Artery. In the attack Vayette suffered a badly cut left hand, and the wound bled profusely. He was given first aid in the restaurant kit" chen, where a tourniquet had to bet placed on the arm to stop bleeding from a small artery. 'Blood was found on the 'barber 1 sihop curtains and on the floor, and Vayette couild be trailed from tlia cafe to the city hall, where •steps also were splattered with blood. Blood also splattered the floor-in the city 'hall ami the police office, but Mr. Van Alsttyne later cleaned it up. • Unemployed Office Here Will Serve 8 Counties in No. la. T. A. Trauger, local federal unemployment office manager, received word Tuesday that Algona has been made headquarters for eight northern Iowa counties, the others being Palo Alto, Dickinson, Emmet, Clay, Buena Vista, O'Brien, and Osceola. All unemployment placing in the district will now be handled through the Algona office and records of the unemployed in the entire district will be kept here. Mr. Trauger was at Des Moines Monday and Tuesday, and took a hand in getting the district office located here. Location was originally planned for a point west of Algona. There are 15 districts in the state. Every unemployed man or woman in the district past 16 years of age has a right to register at the local office. + Marjorie Jensen is Loser at D. M. Marjorie Jensen, Lone Rock, represented Kossuth Saturday in a state spelling contest at Des Moines sponsored by the Des Moines Register. She had won first in a Kossuth contect early in April, and Byron Smith, Algona, was second. The winner in the state contest was a Council Bluffs boy, a parochial school student. Marjorie was ninth to go down in the state contest. One Cent Sale Announced. K. D. James is announcing his semi-annual Rexall one-cent sale in this week's Advance. The store force has been busy since Sunday, preparing merchandise and putting up decorations for tlie event, which closes Saturday night.

LIQUOR STORE TO BE LOCATED IN KOHLHAAS ROOM The state liqour control commission signed a lease Saturday with KoWhaas .Bros, for the south. 24 feet of - their garage building, w.hicQi will be remodeled for a; state liquor store. 'Part of the present show room and part of the repair shop behind lit were leased. The shop end does not have a basement, .but one wiM >e dug under ithe rear 60 feet of ;he building. A brick partition will be run! through .the building to divide the ;arage from .the liquor store. Work was started Monday to remove the .present .partition. When! .his is completed the concrete .floor in the shop end of the building will be taken u p and dirt for the basement removed. Nothing definite -has been done\ as regards per&onneil of ithe local iianagement of the 'liquor store. It is reported that at least four persons will toe employed here: at manager, an office girl, and two men to handle stock. Local observers believe the Algona store will be made a supply point for other stores in .this part of the state and will probably service small stores in adjacent com-' munities. Algona has direct connection with Des Moines by two; rural routes, and also has good freight connections to almost any point in north central Iowa. TEN YEARS IN PEN FOR HIDE THIEVES V. S. Griffin and Isaac Miller, arrested last week at Sioux City after confession to theft of 61 hides from Ira Hewitt's rendering works at Swea City, pleaded guilty before Judge James DeLand in district court Tuesday, and were sentenced to ten years at Anamosa. Griffin and Miller also confessed to hide thefts at Everly and Jackson, Minn. A. B.

Council Meeting Tonight, A special meeting of the city council will be held tonight to award contracts for operating the municipal swimming pool this summer. It is understood that t same managers who ran the pool last year have made applications for the jobs, LIGHT, WATER SCALE REVISED TO MEET TAX New Ordinances Are Effective Today by Publication. Complete text on page 0. Revised electric light and water ordinances appear in this week's Advance as official publications and become effective today. There is no change in the electric light ordinance except insertion of a few words which makes it possible for the city to include the state sales "tax as a part of the electric light charge without in- reasing rates. This action amounts to a reduction of two per cent, which will be sufficient to care for the new state sales tax. New bookkeeping equipment recently installed has no provision for a separate column to show the tax, hence the amount given on bills will include the tax. In practice this means that the city absorbs the tax by allowing a two per cent reduction in rates while the sales tax is in force. Customers will therefore notice no dif- 'erence in statements. "Water Ordinance Revised.. The city has been without a modern water ordinance for years, and the present opportunity was >iezed to revise the old ordinance )jr reducing rates two per cent to take care of the state sales tax while it is in effect. The rates are he same, but are now based on the number of cubic feet of water used nstead of the number of gallons as .0. the past. Water meters register n cubic feet, and extra bookkeep- ng is eliminated by the change. The water ordinance has 34 aec- :ions, and it is worth the while of any water user to read it, for a number of objectionable but common practices are forbidden. >Vhat is Prohibited. Among other things the new ordinance requires connections to street water mains to be made by .he city or a licensed plumber. Connections from one house to another are prohibited; curb shut-off boxes are required for every house or other building; sizes and kinds of lipe are specified for different tinds of installation. The city is not responsible for damage in case of breakage or failure of the water service. Waste of water is prohibited, and ;he city reserves the right to pro- iiibit water for lawns or other extraordinary use of city water. Provision is made for testing meters where there is; a question of accuracy, and a two per cent variation is permitted. A section provides for automatic sprinkler systems to protect premises from fires, and another provides for temporary connections and meters for contractors. No Soft Water Connections. A common, practice now prohibited is making a direct connection between the city water system and a soft water system. This has been done in many cases in order that in case of failure of the soft water supply the city water can be turned into soft water channels. The practice is prohibited because of possible contamination of city water via automatic pumps which might pump soft water into city water mains as the result of variance in water pressure. In some cases soft water is maintained at a higher pressure than city water. When city water is shut off for repairs a soft water system pump might click on because of the drop in pressure and pump soft water backwards into the city system. Violation of the ordinance is punishable by fine of $100 or 30 days in jail. Donald White Buys Ringsted Grocery Don White, who operates the Cut- Rate grocery on east State street £ purchased the East Side grocery at Ringsted last week from Mrs. Niels Jorgenson, and will operate it under the name of White's Cut-Rate Grocery.

Four Arrested; Three Confess to Robberies Totaling to $18,000 George Schumacher, Irvington Farm Hand, Implicated in $7,000 Woden Robbery Two Years Ago. Three Other Men in Jail at Emmetsburg. Jos. Thilges, Whittemore, Ole Thorsland, Bode, an<f; Estal Anders, Decatur, 111., have confessed to the terro$< attempt to extort money from Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Robinson, and at five other north Iowa farms, in which thesf secured $18,000, Sheriff Bert Montgomery, of Emmets* burg, said last night. The men were arrested Mon* day. ;, Arrest of George Schumacher, who had been working;for Arnold Lemkee, a mile or so south of Irvington, has since raised the number of men held in connection wittt. terror robberies in northern Iowa to four. Schumacher fe| also alleged to have been implicated in the Eiseman. rob-4 bery two years ago. He was arrested Tuesday evening. The Emmetsburg trio named Leer Thorsland and Enders confessed yesterday afternoon to the attempted robbery of the C. C. Robinsons, and will be sentenced today in district court at Emmetsburg by Judge James DeLand on a plea of guilty to a charge of robbery with aggravation. Thilges was not involved in the Robinson deal, but confessed to the Woden and Mallard robberies, on which he will also be sentenced. Almost a "convention" of sheriffs and county attorneys of the counties involved will be present at Emmetsburg tomorrow. It is understood that Enders and Thorsland will be sentenced on at least two charges, and Thilges on two. The combined sentences may reach 75 years for each man, as the code prescribes 25 years for robbery with aggravation.

Besch, Bode, now serving a ten- year sentence in the penitentiary afi Fort Madison on a rape charge, as having been an accomplice. BescK was convicted and sentenced a few months ago at Fort Dodge. Anders Confesses First. : Anders was the first arrested,, having been returned to ForestJ, City some days ago on a forgery,charge. There he was identified bjr the H. F. Gneuppel family, near Bode, as one of the men who rob* bed them of $5,900 at their home> last November. The Gneuppela said that he and his companions used the same methods that were> used in the case of the Robinsons* Torture with red hot irons compelled the Gneuppels to reveal th$ hiding place of their money. Anders confessed after identifin :ation and implicated the othec .hree men. He also confessed toi Lhe Robinson robbery attempt early n February. Only $6 was obtain.- id from the Robinsons. Bobinson Hold-Up Admitted. Mr. Robinson died a week afteir he and Mrs. Robinson had been ortured by having red hot irons )laced before their eyes in the at- empt to make them reveal 'where UO.OOO supposed to be in their pos- iession was hidden. As a result of tfr. Robinson's death a more seri- >us charge than would otherwise lave been made may be placed against the men here. Mrs. Robinson was a legatee in a Kansas estate, but she had received no money, and the bandits' search, and threats availed them nothing. The trio also admitted the robbery; of the Barney Kruger family, three miles north of Bode, four years ago. In this robbery $5,000 was taken. They also terrorized Mr. and Mrs. O. J. Eiseman, near Woden, two years ago, and obtained. [7,000, but overlooked $3,000 hidk den in a bed. Thilges Attack Confessed. The men further confessed to thtf Nick Thilges attack near Whittemore last December. In each case the victims were bound and then threatened with, death or mutilation by burning to> force them to reveal the hiding place of money. Some of the victims suffered extra-rough treatment, and Mr. Robinson, who was 77, suffered exposure and a heart attack which is thought to hava. caused death as a direct result. The attack on the Robinsons waa the most serious of the five robberies which had been admitted. Expected to Plead Guilty, What disposition of the men will be made, except that they will be held for trial, is not yet known. Kossuth, Hancock, Wlnnebago, Palo Alto, and Humboldt counties, all have clear cases against one or more of the men. It is believed, however, that the three men held at Emmetsburg will plead guilty and receive sentence in that county. No charge of manslaughter or murder will be brought against the bandits in Kossuth as the result of Mr. Robinson's death, it was indl- Minnesota Couple ^ ,, ^ .-, .
