it was long af ter the war started before they se cured enough evidence for action against her When at home she lived like a princess in a palatial residence where she entertained lavishly the men who could serve her Some times they were foreigners whose secrets she sought sometimes they were Germans whomshe twisted to her will and sent out to their deaths as spies Shetraveled a great deal too and all the i capitals knew her forshe continued the professional dancing which riot only brought her the ad ulation she loved but was a useful Wind for her work as spy Worked in Franco After the war broke out Mata Hari devoted much of her time to espionage in France The French authorities watched her closely but she covered her trail so well that they could not arrest her for she had powerful friends among tie ad miringFrenchmen She finally overreached herself in her crowning audacity when she actually applied for work In the French secret service and was ac cpted She gave the French some useful iformation with the knowledge f her superiors in but her ca purposeof course was to bp n a position where she could better erve the fatherland The French were not fooled and aving her under close observation they finally managed to intercept ome of her secret messages to Berlin Then came court martial and sen ence of death Executed Near Paris They executed Mata Hari near 3aris Prominent men who had loved ier stood weeping among the sev rai thousand spectators at this last act of great human drama True to her penchant for the the atrical and exhibiting the bravery which had carried

the Fed eral Bureau of Investigation United States Department of Justice St Louis Mo climaxed the twenty eighth annual state convention of the Iowa Association of Chiefs of Police at the Hotel Hanford Thurs day afternoon Mr Newman who acted as per sonal representative of J Edgar Hoover director of the Federal Bu reau of Investigation divided his talk on the woni of the GMen into three parts identification training and cooperation The identification problem has been one of great concern down through the ages said Mr New man Early in the eighteenth cen tury the best organized police de partments in Europe employed offi cers with good visual memories who attempted to record mentally the faces of criminals and the crimes connected with those individuals Wouldnt Work Out A system of this kind would hardly work out in this country to day Fortunately the scienceof fin gerprints was discovered not only affording a positive means of iden tification but also opening up an avenue through which approximate ly 500 criminals who are wanted by your law enforcement officials for crimes committed in your communi ties are located every month by means of wanted notices placed in the fingerprint files of your Federal Bureau of Investigation The identification division of the Bureau of Investigation was start ed through the efforts of the Inter national Association of Chiefs of Police in 1921 according to Mr Newman At that lime there were 810000 criminal fingerprints on file with the association At present the bureau now has on file more than 5500000 criminal prints More than dOOO fingerprint cards are received every day and m one section of the identification bureau 100 typists are employed to answer inquiries Urges Fingerprinting Mr Newman urged the finger printing of all persons placed under arrest and showed by examplesthat a little effort taken by the officers in obtaining prints may help thfcm considerably in unraveling mysteri ous crimes We law enforcement officials have realized for years the value of fingerprints as a positive means of criminal identification Only with in recent years has the public in general awakened to the value of fingerprints for

persons dis appear every year Thousands are buried annually without identifica tion Realize Value of Prints Citizens are realizing more and more the value of having their fin gerprints placed on file in Wash ington for personal identification purposes A little over a year and a half ago this free fingerprint ser vice was instituted for the citizens of this country Already more than 160000 persons have voluntarily sent in their fingerprints which have been classified and placed in the civil files which are maintained entirely distinct from the criminal files Mr Newman said that the selec tion of GMen is moat carefully made More than 83 per cent of them are lawyers or expert account ants The qualified applicants must pass written and oral examinations and investigated thoroughly before appointment Is afforded them They are trained by experienced instruc tors in Washington before being sent to the field offices for assign ment They are givenextensive training in the Bureaus fingerprint division and in its technical labora tory Given ENtetislve Training GMen are also given extensive training in the use of firearms ac cording to Mr Newman who said that 88 per cent of them

Aug 1 estimate despite the fact that drought continued throughout most of the corn belt during August The national estimate foresaw a corn crop of 1458205000 bushels Sept 1 as compared with 1439135 000 Aug 1 Still Falls Short The Iowa estimate however still falls far short of production last year which wns 373388000 bushels and is somewhat below that in the drought year of 1034 which was set at 233000000 bushels by the gov ernmentcrop reporters for production this year the esti mate reflects clearly the effects of this summers drought on the Iowa crop which on July 1 the gov ernment crop experts estimated at more than 400000000 Average production for the 1928 32 five year period in Iowa was bushels Below 10 Year Average Carl said that the estimate of 33 per cent of normal Sept 1 was four points below Aug 1 and 46 points below the Sept 1 10 year 192332 He said the revision upwards re sulted from rains about the middle of August which benefltted some corn In east central and northeasl Iowa He pointed out however thai rain came too late In the west and south to help the corn particularly In the 45 drought counties Increased acreage this year he explained offset the decline
