However, approval by the U. S, public hcullh service of the state's >lans Is required before tho appli- cations can be processed.

Without Orville Wright's cloth, glue and wood contraption nnd his 12-sccond flight over the sands of Kitty Hawk, N.

Meanwhile, Democratic lenders polished up a substitute bill which would hold the income tax reduc- tion to about It, would tax corporiil.lon profits to make up most of the revenue loss. All the Democrats hope for Is a good showing. The substitute has no chance. In the Senate, though, even the Republicans admit the slash provided by the Knutson bill will be trimmed. This will be a bid for Democratic help to over- ride the expected presidential veto by the necessary two-thirds ma- jority. Representative Graham A. Bar- dcu (D.-N.

Perry, 68. It was a victory for the Trempea- Icau Valley Association of Com- mercial Clubs, headed by Gconre Purnell, McrrlJlnn. which started circulation of n recall petition 30 days RRO. The association chwgrd that county's hospltallzatlon fund monry has been spent for hay. corn, chick- en feed, sport clothes and tajd service, and simultaneously charged that Jackson county is "practically bankrupt." Fimt Report on Petition Announcement thnt the Judee quittlnjt fills term doc-i not expire until IflSOl comes us Um 25-odd circulalora of tlic recall peti- tion were making their flrst reports to DC Vnn Staples, Merrtllan'i country board supervisor. President PurncJJ siUd that a pre- liminary chrck had shown that circulators had secured signatures far m excess" or the number re- quired, adding that an exact count would be made at a meeting in Mci-rlllan Sunday afternoon. Said Purnell, "This resignation satisfies us. Our interest in who is judge ends here, we're not run- ning any man. We were getting a man out. Of course, resignations can be withdrawn, so our Interest will continue to a, certain extent This recall drive has been won- derful. It has given people of Jackson county a chance to slsn a, legal document stating what they Wo found the peophs want- ed information. Wo licked wcrccy and ignorance with information. Flrhl Will Continue "We're happy about the turn of the events, but. our flglit will con- tinue. Investigation has shown that the flnnncin.1 condition of county is In far worse shape than we originally said. There should more resignations, but we'll get to that a little later." Although the recall sponsors adding figures, the governor's an- nouncement ended the recall drive. Rennebohm said that the Judge. whose resignation Is effective Im- mediately, gave no reason for action in stepping from an oBlce ho has held for 13 years. Since the of commercial clubs In Taylor. Alma Center. Mcrrlllan and started circulation of the petition, rumors that the Judge would resign have abounded. But as late as Tuesday of this week the rumors were scotched by a letter from governor to District Attorney Vic- tor Gilbcrtson, Black River Palls. In which the governor sold no resigna- tion had been filed. Rcidtnutlon Accepted Yesterday, however, Louis Drecfc- trohl. Perry Drccktrahl. went to Madison, and the governor's an- nouncement followed. Whether Judge Perry made the trip could not be ascertained immediately. In Jackson county speculation immediately began as to whom would be appointed to succeed Judge Perry until his successor can elected at the regular election in April, but the announcement from the governor's office Indicated would be made to fill the vacancy. An Associated Press dispatch, said. A successor will be chosen at the April election." It has been assumed that Hans Hanson, Black River Falls attorney, would oppose Judge Perry if tha drive for the recall resulted in a special Judgeship election. In 1943. after Judge Perry had received ona appointment and two elections as county Judge without opposition. Mr. Hanson, native of the com- munity, opposed the re-election and conducted a campaign In his own behalf. He lost. For several years there was no public opposition to the Judge. Then last fall the new Jackson county board of commissioners, after a heated session, relieved Judge Perry as welfare director, replacing: Urn with Kcrmlt Hanson. The new director also failed to re-hire Mrn. Perry who hnd been employed in the county welfare office. Launched January 12 It was at a meeting of the Trcm- x-aleau association at Merrlllan January 12. when the recall action was launched with Oscar Peterson, Merrlllan; Harold Bartholomew, Alma Center: Herman Molzau. Hixton, and William Helstad. Tay- or, at the helm. The association's action drew wide attention, since recall governing device provided for the rarely used. But the 31nck River Falls Banner Journal. weekly owned by Congressman Hull, "has refused to co- Purnell snld. When the Judge heard about j recall move he said it was the result of a political feud resulting from his victory over Mr. Hanson in the last election.
