Statement Albert Hass who for 12 years was president of the Modern Broth erhood of America Wednesday de nied knowledge of secret agree ments in the merger of his organ isation with the Independent Order of Foresters as alleged in a state ment by Gov Clyde Herring The M B A was forced to merge or go into the hands of a receiver Mr Hass said in a statement issued in a reply to Governor Herrings

until the merger in th fall of 1831 Following is Mr Hass statement in full Editor Mason City GlobeGazette Forced to I have just read your artlcl tUQ inerger ol the ern Brotherhood of America with the Independent Order of Foresters and in reading it one not familiar with the condition of the M B A might come to the conclusion that the officers of the M B A had be trayed their trust when they de cided to merge with the I O F The fact of the matter is that the M B A was forced to merge or go into the hands of a receiver on account of so many frozen assets the history of which Jt Is not neces sary to go into because it involves others who were no longer con nected with the society From the experience that other societies have had through receiverships the of ficers of the M B A concluded it would not be for the benefit of the society or its members to have a receiver appointed Gave Best Terms Therefore the officers began to see what society would be best to merge with for the benefit of all the members and the conclusion xvas that the I O F was willing to give the best terms to the members as a whole Accordingly the agreement was drawn up and presented to the commissioner of Canada by the I O F and the commissioner of in surance of the state of Iowa Both of these gentlemen approvedthe agreement which specifically pro vides that every penny of assets held by the members of the M B A must be credited to them and GILBERT N HAUGEN Mrs Meyer Pioneer Sheffield Resident Is Dead at Age of 83 SHEFFIELD July 19 Mrs Henry Meyer 83 died Tuesday from old age She was born in Germany

se curity owned by the M B A is still held in trust for the members by the commissioner of insurance The agreement also provides that the officers of the society would re ceive the same salary for four years as they had been voted by the dele gates of the M B A at the con vention assembled Convention Called After this agreement had been approved a special convention was called and the delegates
