Karpis kidnap gang in this locality were received today in the search for George Weyerhaeuser 9 missing for nearly a week While there were indications a reward might be offered to speed release of the heir to a timber fortune an university of Washington student furnished new information concerning the Karpis gang named in the Edward G Bremer kidnaping case Fred Stojack the student said in Seattle he rode in a bus Friday night with a man reading a letter addressed to Volney Davis lieuten ant in the Karpis mob PiCKCd Out Picture Stojack picked out a picture of Davis as resembling the man with

reward it was believed might hasten Georges delivery through the old adage of money talks in buying information The childs young parents Mr and and Mrs J P Weyerhaeuser Jr still were in seclusion It

to stage the Weyerhaeu ser ransom plot Bentz is a lormer Tacoman The Karpis gang engineered the Edwin G Bremer snatch in St Paul which had striking similarities to the kid naping here The Weyerhaeuser

assuring Bouisson of suc cess in his attempt to form a save the franc cabinet Until the radical socialist sup port came along it appeared likely that Bouisson would be unable to carry out the assignment given him by President Lebrun when parlia ment early today voted a lack of confidence in the government of the most recent premier PierreEtienne Flandin Political experts said that it Bouisson failed Herriot himself probably would be called upon to serve again as premier The next government will be called upon to face the financial emergency which resulted in the deputies voting

crowded his press conference that the supreme courts NRA decision implied the end of the Agricultural Adjustment administration and two other new deal agencies as well President Roosevelt today indicated he contemplated action next week in an effort to counteract the ef fect of the ruling What form his intended move would take was not revealed but he asserted it was up to the people to decide whether the nations eco nomic and social life is to be regu lated by the states or by the fed eral government Horse and Buggy Characterizing the decision as perhaps the most important in the history of the nation he expressed the view that the courts interpre tation of interstate commerce takes the country back to the horse and buggy stage of 1789 It raised the question of whether the Agricultural Adjustment ad ministration and the securities commission were legal he said and meant the end of the federal alco hol control administration as now constituted as well as NRA itself Asked if the issue did not point directly to a constitutional amend ment to empower congress to deal with national commercial condi tions he said not necessarily Now Before Country As to the AAA he said the ques tion now before the country was whether the federal government has any valid power to regulate crop production The issue was up to the people he added indicating an expecta tion that it would be focused de terminedly in the years immediate ly ahead He did not elaborate but appar ently was exploring possibilities of other laws to reach new deal ob jectives laws that would be upheld by the highest court Utility Bill Debated The president spoke out defin itely and specifically on the deci sion for the first time as the sen ate entered again into the cotro versy over the bill to abolish

greater accessibility than has prevailed for many years they are more at hand but many of them have been here for years The trouble is that lowans dont know about them and havent shown the desire to find out Northeastern Iowa particularly abounds in scenery Great bluffs line the Mississippi river from which vistas unequaled anywhere in this section may be viewed Natural rock formations lure visitors to that section es pecially the ice caves near Decorah Mc Gregor is well worthy of anyones visit and just across the river is historic Prairie du Chien with the remnants of a fort from which Gen Joseph M Street came to represent the white man at the old Indian agency six miles east of Ottumwa Gen Zachary Taylor later president of the United States was com mandant at the fort and Jefferson Dovis served there as a lieutenant The natural lakes in the northern part of the state and the chain of constructed ones being seen now in the southern part offer the vacationist any water outing he may desire In our immediate territory is Lake Wapello Lake Keomah and the Farmington and Keo sauqua state parks together with Oakland Mills near Mount Pleasant and the Heaton bird refuge in Jefferson county Flint Hills park near Burlington is attractive and at Montrose is the site of the first orchard in the state with historic Nauvoo just across the river The list goes on for some length lowans
