Fries, was filed in district court here this week, with Welp's the plaintiff and Fries and Kerber Milling Co., defendants. The matter, in which the plaintiff seeks $10,000 damages, charges that Fries is attempting to take patrons and customers from the plaintiff. Judge G. W. Stillman issued a court order which will restrain Fries from entering competition with the plaintiff and keep Kerber Milling from interfering with the original contractual relationship. Said contract is alleged to have been signed by Fries and a representative of Welp's Oct. 23, 1961. Fries became sales manager and nutritionist for Welp's and served the latter until, according to the petition, he quit without notice July 31, 1965. The petition charges Fries immediately went to work for Kerber, despite wording in the original contract with Welp's which stated he agreed not to enter a competitive line of business in Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota or Nebraska for a period of one year after leaving Welp's. Kerber is a competitor of Welp's, according to the petition. The plaintiff alleges it has advised Kerber of the terms of the contract and demanded that Fries comply with the contract, to no avail. Welp's also listed seven separate orders and injunctions that are in line with the original contract. Ervin Brass was sentenced to one year in the state penitentiary at Ft, Madison by Judge Stillman after entering a guilty plea to a charge of false check, fourth offense. Appeal bond in the matter was set at $1,000. Two other matters, including a promissory note and divorce, BANCROFT - Funeral services are set for 9:30 a. m. Wednesday morning for Mrs. Mary Hatten, 80.
