of Veterans to Petition Governor for Release An appeal to Gov Clyde L Her ring was signed by the Daughters of union Veterans of the Civil War at their meetingFriday evening at the Y W C A in an effort to have Marvin T Grattan Civil war vet eran freed from prison where he serving a sentence for murder The petition which is being pre sented by the Iowa Department of the Daughters of Veterans follows We feel that there has been a gross miscarriage of Justice in the imprisonment for life of Marvin T Grattan on a charge of first degree murder To SaveGrandson The evidence submitted at the trial leaves no conclusion reasonably possible other than that one Claude Meade was shot by Mr Grattan while Meade was beating Grattans grandson with a pitchfork which caused Grattan to believe that the life of his grandson was threatened The shooting was in the presence of witnesses and Grattan went to the sheriffs office after the incident and related the whole circum stances These are not the acts of the first degree murderer Mr Grattan is a civil war vet eran 85 years of age His service for his country during its crisis was distinguished by his honor courage and loyalty to his government Since then his life has been an upright citizen standing for honor justice and human wel his home life a tender hus band and father devoted to those near him If he made any mistake in judgment in concluding that the life of his grandson was in danger that mistake was due to his com mendable devotion to the members of his household He and his wife arein the sixtysixth year of their wedded life a record that should not be spoiled by an unfortunate in cident Kb Good Cause No good cause can be served by killing this man in prison On the contrary discouragement will be placed in the way of every good citizen who aspires to a long life of devotion to his God home and country For such exceptional cases was your aacred power granted to you We beg of you to exercise it and pardon Marvin T Grattan A meeting of department staff will be held in Des Moioes next month and the petition will be pre sented to the governor at that time Mrs Henry C Shipmau has a copy of the petition for the D A R and W Earl Hall for the Amer ican Legion sent to them by the daughter of Mr Grattan At the meeting the Daughters of Veterans Mrs Chris Gilstram was initiated into the order MRS HARRY WALTER HOKORBD AT PARTY

it has been fash ionable to decry hero worship and in pursuance of the tendency an effort has been made to reduce the great men of history to human stat ure or even below One of the ous land Ing subjects of the treatment has been George Washington who has been por trayed by somemodern writers as far less heroic than the figure pic tured in older accounts To tellchildren the truth is ad visable of course but to understate the truth is quite as misleading as to exaggerate it Children need heroes They can not measure themselves by the yard stick of mediocrity but long for something which towers above them nearly out of gauge by which to judge their own accom plishment Heroworship is as in atlnctlve as need for religion and If they lack men of worth to ideal tee and imitate they may take to gunmen and gangsters Whatever else might be said of Washington it is good for children to consider that here wag a man who with every opportunity to lead a selfish and selfindulgent life vol untarily endured the arduous labors of landsurveying and Indian fight ing finally risked his life and for tune and endured years of discour agement want and all for an ideal Taken in reverse the picture is also that of a selfmade man if we think of humanity and mankind as the norm with Lincoln and Wash ing approaching it from opposite sides Both were men whom our chil dren can well afford to admire and imitate as examples of what a man can do to make himself in spite of limitations whether of money or the lack of It MAIERRUNDE McINTIRE Feb Anna Runde of the Wapste neighborhood and Frank
