ALQONA. IOWA. THURSDAY EVENING. FEBRUARY 10. 1938 ,. _ . . . 10. 1938 12 Pages 96 Colum Number 21 T GUILTY VERDICT INSTRUCTED DpLand Finds Newspaper Reports Are Proper Through courtesy of H. J. Kit- eman, court reporter for Judge imes DeLand, the following tran- iript of part at Judge DeLand's {itnarka in over-ruling a change ! venue motion in the Armstrong i. Johnson' damage case is pre- ittted byi>the Advance. In , discussing the affidavits Alidge DeLand Baid: v«f« Thews irnot a Statement in one those affidavit* of any fact or ume Day expression made by any per- in Koasuth county which of 1 liqk|jeif shows any feeling on the CR i, itrt of the person who this affiant .35, In |' es ys he talked with; not a single tod or statement of fact in any le of those affidavit*). He says I talked with these people and i formed the ; opinion because of e discussion — his own personal talon that it would be difficult get an impartial jury. If there is a real basis for such opinion based upon facts he gathered from talks with other people he has failed to tell us what a single person in Kossuth county said -that would Indicate any bias or prejudice one way or the other because of these facts." In discussing newspaper articles Judge DeLand said: "When .we examine the matter printed in these various issues of the newspaper there is not a statement in any one of these articles that pretends, or purports, to do anything more than'tb'bimply give an account of the facts ..that existed as a result of that accident. It is just a fact of the accident as a matter of news. , "There is no coloring of that situation there are no inflammatory statements contained in those published articles, there is no expression by the writer of the .articles of any opinion that he might have as to the conditions or situation. It is just a plain, cold, deliberate statement of the facts as gathered by the news gatherer for publication in his paper, a mere statement of facts that occurred. "In reference to the more recent issues of the paper that there are other suits commenced against this same defendant In this county —is there any rule of law in this state that gives this particular defendant the rlgnt-of-way exclusively; that because this case was commenced first against him in this county that no other claimant could bring an action against him? . . . "The article in the paper of November 4th to which counsel calls particular attention refers to another accident entirely separate and distinct from this accident. An accident in which this defendant was not concerned or interested or a party. He was not mixed up in this accident that is mentioned in this publication. It is between other people entirely. "The only reference to this case now pending was where he said that Mr. McLaughlin, in company with E. C. McMahon, local attorney, had been over the ground of an accident near Livermore which occurred last Friday and resulted in three other deaths. It does not specifically name this defendant, does not specifically refer to this case. "But even if it did, it is the barest reference to the fact that these people, this Mr. McLaughlin and the attorney for the defendant in this case, were down looking over the ground where this accident happened. Suppose they were! There is no showing that they were trying at that time, or had been at any other ime, c to settle or adjust the loss in this case. It is the mer- I est inference ..."

Lenihan said-Saturday when he was in the Advance office. There was a good crowd of interested buyers, brought by the advertising. Livestock brought good prices, and the big list of, farm machinery sold at good prices. Bidders were 'attracted from all sections of the county, and the "distance" buyers; as- Mr. Lenihan said, "came to buy." This illustrates the truth of the statement that a farm sale.vmu6t.ibe.advertised in a newspaper of wide circulation, and every dollar spent for advertising brings back dollars on sale day. Land could be had by that court. It was then noon, and Judge DeLand recessed the case till 2 p. m., when he said he would rule on the stay request. During the noon hour Mr. Whitney and Mr. McMahon, through attorneys at Des Moines, obtained a writ of cevti- orari from the supreme court, setting a hearing for Saturday, a::d shortly before 2 o'clock th(= clerk of the supreme 'court so informed Judge DeLand by telephone.. When Judge DeLand reconvened at 2 o'clock he announced that the call had been received, ;hat he over-ruled the stay procedure, but that the action of'the supreme court left him no choice but .o submit the record so far made to that court, and hold the case over to the next term. This was resisted by D. C. Hutchison, who asked the court to set the case for today, stating that lie would endeavor to have the sertiorarl hearing set for Wednesday, so that the case would not be delayed till next term. After some discussion Judge DeLand agreed :o hold the matter upon for the time being. Supreme Court Changes. Immediately by telephone the estate attorneys contacted judges of the supreme court, and had the hearing on the writ of certiorari advanced to Wednesday, and a second telephone call informed Judge DeLand, who in turn advised Mr. Whitney and Mr. McMahon. Judge DeLand then agreed to set the case for trial for Thursday morning if the supreme court upheld his ruling and returned it for trial in the hearing Wednesday. Within a few minutes after this was announced a settlement between the attorneys was made, whereby all six cases were settled for a total of $8500 plus court costs in all, to be paid by the defense. None of the proceedings, with the exception pf two announcements, was heard by the prospective jurors or spectators in the courtroom. The battle was all behind the scenes, and when the trial was set for this term the estate attorneys had won.

Well, Maybe You Women Will Know What This Means Mrs. Chet H. Williams, Algona, and L. M. Christerisen, Estherville, returned Friday nighi from Chicago, where they attended a style show and bought goods for the Christensen stores. They brought back the following fashion forecast: The idea now is extreme slimness, or with flare, or fullness, spreading from the hips. Jackets are of many lengths, Including boleros, skirts with pleate aplenty, shoulders wide or smooth, hemlines ripply or skimpy, sleeves short or long. The newest idea is Moused dresses with snug-fitting belts, The Russian style is either a daytime or dinner dress, with peasant-style sleeves'. Fullness at the shoulder la confined by shirrings and pleats. Waistlines are allm.

Dewel one of my best friends, but recent events have proven that he Is false and unworthy of my love and affection. It Is all on account of his campaign for salt-rising bread. Through his paper he elaborated on the merits of this unsavory food till several good women, my wife among them, went to work, and as they dove down into the deep, dork mysteries produced a concoction'that'is not fit for man or beast. The aroma that Dewel talks about Is simply a swill- barrel smell. I have been obliged to live on the stuff for a whole week, and if I ever get a chance I sure will got even with Dewel. Just now I can not think of anything mean enough to satisfy my injured feelings, but I will get even. Revenge, thon art sweet! I feel that Dewel's promotion of this breads was premeditated and done with malice aforethought. JDOUE NEVttLE.

At a previous meeting of the Chamber board the 'air was discussed, and the fol- owing motion was passed, and it was read at Tuesday's joint ineet- .ng. Resolution Presented. This resolution, containing suggestions, and read by Secretary Reiley, follows: "That the Chamber of Commerce appreciates and welcomes fthe opportunities for expression afforded by this meeting: "Our organization desires to cooperate with fair officials in matters of mutual interest, affecting the future welfare of the fair the city of Algona, (including the Tableaux Will Be Presented on Program at Chanty Ball Three teams are now tied for second place in the bowling league, with Skelly still in the lead, 3y a margin of three games.

More than 130 tickets have been sold to the Charity Ball to be held in the newly refinished Bryant school auditourium a week from Monday. The minimum price for the tickets is $2.50, and a number of $10 and $5 donations have been reported to the committee in in charge of ticket sales. In the meantime the program ommlttee has arranged a series f nine tableaux to represent nine >eriods in the development of and business Interests therein) the county in general; "That in view of the above, the Chamber of Commerce in all sincerity, and at the suggestion of your president, offers the following suggestions:" Asks Board Members. 'Two or more Chamber of Commerce members should be given an official status on the fair board, either as directors or any such title of your own choosing thereby allowing the business met to be represented and to take an active part in the conduct and the managemen of the fair. "The offices of secretary of both organizations should be consolidated for the purpose of efficiency and reduction of expenses. "That other matters should be discussed, if time permits: Problems Proposed. "Store closing in Algona; ticket sales in Algona; Store closing in other towns; ticket sales in other towns; advertising in fair book; publicity;, other advertising; gel more exhibitors; manner or the method of increasing county wide interest; year around cooperation with Farm Bureau, 4-H clubs, etc; better representation on the fail board of county businessmen; better representation on fair boarc o f county farmers; experiment with f ree_, admission gate or a cheaper gate; experiment with a smaller admission charge to the grandstand; experiment with less expensive free acts and attractions." ffo Action Yet. Nothing was done in regard to the first two suggestions' other than the naming of the committee to work with the fair board. The fair board Js limited to five by rules of that organization, hence the Chamber committee could have no official status at this time at least. It is understood that this may be taken up at the next annual meeting of the fair association which will be held in January, 1939. There was no action on the second suggestion, because of the elections of both Mr. Reiley and E. L. Vincent as secretaries of the two organizations, and this was left up to future decision and developments. Discussion on the several other Items was also not detailed, and decision will be made by the fair board acting with the Chamber committee. — » Local Farmer Buys 40 Acres at Britt Herman Wlllrett, four miles north and a mile east of Algona has bought the Soren Didriksen 40-acre farm at the southeast edge of Britt, and will take possession soon.

Safe Wanted; Safe for Sale; Want Ad Turns the Trick Last week a Lone Rock concern advertised for a safe, and • this week a Lone Rocker who said he had a good one for sale called by telephone to discover who the advertiser was. The information was given, and though no report has been received it is presumed that the parties got together and made a deal. The incident demonstrates that often in the same community there are persons who want things that others want to sell. The same is of course true also when the parties live in different communities. Many times an Ad'wance want ad costing only 25c or thereabouts will bring these persons together and result In a deal to mutual advantage. Want ads cost only 2c a word. FARM SALES BILL ED FOR COMING WEEK Farmers are Getting Ready for Mar. 1 Changes. P. H. Jensen, Fenton, has reserved Tuesday, February 22, Washington's birthday, for a farm auction which will be somewhat out of the ordinary as regards the high quality of the offerings. Included will be 20 high grade Hoi- steins which dairymen will want to own; also horses of better quality than are usually found in farm sales. There will also be a good line of farm machinery, all of which js up-to-date, much of it nearly new, used only one season. The advertisement will appear next week. W. H. Helmke, near Renwick, a reliable breeder who has been in the purebred hog business since wartime and has many times advertised in the Advance, announces a/bred sow sale for next week Thursday. Forty gilts will be offered, and purchasers are always sure of quality in the Helmke offerings. Four-H boys and girls should read • what the advertisement says about how to win $5 in cash. R. 0.

Employment Office Finds Jobs for 28 The National Reemploymenl Service here reports 13 men anc JUDGE TAKES CASE OUT OF JURY'S HAND Finds State Fails to Show a Crime Was Committed. Afer trial of only a little more than an hour, and before the first witness had completed contemplated testimony, Judge DeLand yesterday sustained a motion for a directed verdict in a criminal case brought against A. E. Mann, former Titonka stock food salesman. ; An indictment had been returned by the grand jury charging Mann was short in his accounts with the Acme Feed concern, of Forest Park, 111., with whom be had done business on consignment. The indictment charged "embez- zelment by bailee' which meant the fraudulent use of money or other valuables left for safe-keeping with the defendant. Only One Witness. The only witness to take th» stand was an agent of the Illinois concern. Testimony offered by the prosecution was halted by th* ourt ruling that it was not admissible as evidence, consisting only of bills, receipts, and other papers of which the witness had no personal knowledge. In opening statements County Attorney L. A. Winkel told the Ury of the indictment, and charged that Mann had sold goods be- bnging to the company and had not remitted as had been agreed, E. Linnan, one of the attorneys for Mr. Mann, said the defense- charged that a proper account- ng had not been made to Mr. Mann by the company. Defense Asks Statement The defense also charged that others selling direct for the company, salesmen from the Chicago office, and other dealers had used the facilities of Mann's warehouse, and that goods actual- y sold by him had all been paid for, and that shortages, if any, resulted from the warehouse con- "usion of responsibility. The de~ ense also attacked the indictment, stating that Mr. Mann was not acting as bailee at all, but was urged to sell the produce and not 'hold" them as bailee for the company. After an hour or so spent in :estimony Judge DeLand called a •ecess, and with attorneys for both side of the case and the company -witness held an "off-th-re- :ord" few minute session in the judge's room. Upon return to :he courtroom Mr. Linnan presented a motion to the court asking hat the jury be instructed to return a verdict of not guilty. Jury Instructed. Judge DeLand sustained the mo- ion, and after the verdict had )een prepared by Court Reporter S. J. Kittleman, of Storm Lake, Judge DeLand directed John W. Helmers, of Algona, a juror, to sign the verdict as foreman. Fol- owing this Mann was released 'rom bond, and the case was dismissed from the court calendar. Members of the jury, besides Selmers, were: Rosalie Borman, of Bode; A. C. Bierstedt, of Burt; Arnold Bobo and Tony Stoffel, Algona; Thomas Crahan, West Bend; has. Ditsworth and Chas.
