fancy writeup on the front page telling where you were going to put all the stories in the paper and its a smart idea but you didnt say anything about where you were going to print the truth Rena Mack city all rightI like it Time after time Ive read down to where the break came and then stopped I seldom read anything that ran over George was a nice edition you put out last night Where did that idea come from Morgan J new policy of front page stories com plete on the front page is highly commendable The former method that of continuation to other pages involved and effected many annoy ing results One would start a story on the frontpage turn to the pags of continuation and then become ab sorbed in some other glaring yet minor article Then one would often forget the original article and its continuation together with forget ting to turn back to page 1 for he other front page stories The Old method was like look ing for a word in the dictionary One would start after the word but before arriving1 at goal one would encounter other interesting words and then would wonder what ori ginal word sent one scurrying to the dictionary Awaits Sentence for Slaying His Son 5 WASHINGTON Jan 17 CD David Ashcraft hopelessly crippled news wador today awaited sen tence for the killing of his 5 year old son The 45 year old paralytic was convicted of manslaughter by a District of Columbia supreme

pirmary Kraschel made his declaration at Gov Clyde L Herrings morn ing press confer ence Governor Her ring refused to state whether he will run for the senatorial nomin ation but said Kraschels can didacy for gover nor is a perfectly logical step It was apparent that Kraschel and the governor had arranged jointly for Kraschels announcement The governor early today asked report ers to come to his office at a m a half hour before his usual press conference Kraschel Conies In Fifteen minutes after the confer ence was begun Kraschel knocked at the governors1 back door and was admitted He took from his brief case a formal statement announcing his candidacy and handed it to the governor asking does this meet with your approval Herring said Its fine The statement read I am a candidate for

duty to place Iowa officially in the forefront for any sound program tending to improve the business of farming On the question of agriculture industrial development improvement of labor conditions and social improvements Iowa should develop a well defined program without reference to poli tics and other selfish influences This can be accomplished only by a careful survey of facts under state leadership Kraschels announcement and his outspoken indorsement of Governor Herrings legislative program fur her indicated that a possible con troversy in the candidacies of the states two leading democrats has definitely been averted Herring Not Running As soon as Kraschels announce ment had been distributed Herring was asked Are you announcing your can didacy Why Im not running against him Herring said Do you mean you are not running or governor and will run for the senate he was asked Im gojng to keep on running his job as well as I can and Im not ready yet to announce whether I will or will not run for any of fice the governor replied Commenting on Kraschels can didacy Herring said Not Good Precedent There is a feeling among the democrats that a third term as gov ernor would not be a good prece dent to set Being governor is the best job in the world and it offers greater opportunity than any I snow of to sit behind this desk and do everything you can for the pco ile of Iowa Kraschel said he has not yet ap pointed a campaign manager Will I have to make a cam paign he asked laughing But I guess that remark should be off the record he added Kraschel and Herring swung the discussion to former President Hoovers address at Lincoln Nebr last night when questions as to Wilson falsified the record of the World war Senator Nye R N Dak today characterized as a flow of brilliant gutter English the attack made upon him yester day by Senator Connally D Tex Connally had accused the North Dakotan chairman of the senate munitions committee of insulting Wilsons memory

was expressed today by President Roosevelt The chief executive discussed the agricultural problem at his press conference after stipulating that he was not replying to the farm ad dress last night by former Presi dent Herbert Hoover He explained he had not had an opportunity yet to read the Hoover speech There was an intimation that new taxes might be necessary to meet the program as a substitute for the old processing levies killed by the supreme court The president said however he was not ready to discuss that phase Amendments 1ossilile Mr Roosevelt said slight amend ments to the existing soil erosion and conservation acts will be neces sary He reserved any estimate on the amount of money which would be required by tne government to lease land from farmers under the proposed plan Some congressional leaders who attended yesterdays white house farm conference had mentioned 5300000000 to as necessary for carrying out the pro gram in 1936 Mr Roosevelt emphasized that soil erosion constitutes not only the actjialiwasbJngA1yvayof soilinto river beds but alsoloss of chemicals in the soil resulting from continued use for the same crop Takes in All Farms Asked if this interpretation did not bring every farm of the country under the scope of the erosion law the president said he thought it did He explained the existing ma chinery including county agents probably would be employed in car rying out the purpose of the new program Saying the undertaking under soil erosion constituted no change in the administrations farm relief effort the president recalled a statement he made last Oct 25 From it he read to a crowded press conference a reference to a long time more permanent plan for American agri culture STATE BUREAU HARRISON SAYS VETO WILL NOT STOP BONUS

Hauplmann today with a bristling retort to his foes If impeachment is the price that must be paid for daring to follow the dictates of my conscience I am ready to pay it the 39 year old overnor said in the longest state ment he has ever issued on tho Lindbergh baby murder case A good investigation of the Lind bergh case might be a healthy thing1 Impeach Hoffman The governors statement follow ing the publication in the Trenton StateGazette and Trenton Evening Times today of an editorial en titled Impeach came shortly after an exchange of cable grams between Atty Gen David T Wilcntz and Dr John F Condon Jafsic had been made public The attorney general advised Condon that the governors course might be construed as a reflection upon the state of New Jersey and the authorities that investigated

to die at 8 oclock tonight learned of the re prieve late yesterday Impeachment proceedings repre sent only one of the treats leveled against me the ordinarily jovial governor said if I elected to fol Icw my own sense of duty in this matter I do not fear them It is known that soon after Hauptmann was convicted tho governor received letters threaten ing his life and the lives nf the jurors and Supreme Court Justice Thomas W Trenchard who tried and sentenced Hauptmann Absent From Capitol The governor was absent from the capitol when his statement was issued Whether his absence related to his divers reasons for the re prieve was not disclosed I am moved by no maudlin sen timent in this matter the gov ernor went on I am the father of three children I look upon the kid naping as one of the most dastardly of crimes When Hauptmann was told that his only chance to save his life was to go before the board of pardons say I am guilty and throw himself upon the mercy of tho court he spurned the opportunity I am interested in the preser vation of that thing we have rather proudly called Jersey justice A stay of comparatively few days can not defeat that end Has Always CoOpenifed The cablegram to the attorney general from Dr Condon who sailed from New York on the eve of the meeting of the court of pardons which rejected Hauptrnanns clem ency appeal last Saturday said I have at all

persecuted and regret the physical and mental anguish that you have suffered There is no need for any change in your plans Did Xot Consent I did not consent to tho reprieve but I did not conceive it my duty to challenge the action of the chief executive I regret tne course taken by the governor only because it construed as a rflcction upon the state the states witnesses the police authorities of the several states and of the na tion who participated in gathering and presenting the evidence The governor has assigned no reason for granting the reprieve No new evi dence has been called to my
