Single Copy Five Cento INVESTIGATE REDS' PART IN BRIGGS STRIKE Henry Huber, Former Lieutenant Governor, Dies HEART AILMENT CLAIMS VETERAN OFFICE HOLDER LEADER IN PROGRESSIVE RANKS SUCCUMBS TO HEART AILMENT; HELD LIEUTEN- ANT GOVERNORSHIP FOR 8 YEARS. As British Envoy Helped to Pave Way for Debt Talks Madison, Wis., Feb. Henry A. Huber, 63, lieutenant gov- ernor of Wisconsin from 1925 to 1933, died at the Wisconsin General hospital here last night. He entered the hospital Jan. 13 for treatment of a heart ailment from-which he had suffered for sev- eral months. Monday his condition became critical. Funeral Friday Funeral services will be conducted here Friday at 1 p. m. and at Stoughton, Mr. Huber's home, at p. ra. The Rev. S. J. Ruegg of the Plymouth Congregational church of Madison will officiate. The Rev. Mr. Aldrich of Stoughton will offer a prayer and burial will be at Stoughton. During his long service in the state legislature, first as assembly- man and later as senator and pre- siding officer of the upper house, Mr. Huber was a proponent of "lib- eral" legislation. Throughout his public career he fought for the initiative and refer- endum which is now before the 1933 legislature for final legislative ap- proval before going to the voters for a referendum. He was co-author with Prof. John R. Commons of the first unemploy- ment insurance bill to be introdue- ed in an American legislature. This was in 1921. A decade later he was almost bitter in his denunciation of Prof. Commons for the tetter's view on small loans legislation. The for- mer lieutenant governor devoted much of his time to repeal of the small loans act in the last session of the legislature.

Berlin, Feb. lor Adolf Hitler obtained from President Von Hindenburg today a decree for dissolution of the Reichstag scheduled to meet next Tuesday. Berlin, Feb. Adolf Hitler called a meeting of his cabinet for tonight, presumably to decide upon immediate dissolution of the Reichstag. The meeting was set for 7 p. m., j after Hitler and Vice Chancellor Franz Von Papen visited President Paul Von Hindenburg. Centrists Obstinate The possibility of the Reichstag's dissolution, even before convening, j loomed large when it became known that the Centrists and their the Bavarian people's party, were unwilling to enter the Hitler cabi- net. Hitler strongly favored dissolu- Note Reveals Marr Suspicioned Some Attempt Would Be Made to Do Him Harm; Suspect Hitch- Hiker. Kansas City, Feb. 1. Fears of impending dangers held by Luther D. Marr have furnished investigating- officers with two the- ories regarding possible motives of his slaying Monday night near Pleasanton, Kas. Felt Concern for Safety From Mrs. Marr, police learned the 67-year-old Kansas City estate dealer, had expressed real con- cern about his safety on a trip to Mound City, Kas., Monday to at- tend a mortgage foreclosure sale. The widow told police Marr had recalled recent disturbances at such sales in the middlewest, and quoted him as saying: "They are a rough bunch and may waylay me." He did specify "thev." who he by Sassman Urges Retention of County Agricultural Schools the duration of their terms bears his name. This legislation was intended to permit prisoners to provide sup- port for their families. Wrote Recall Amendment He wrote the recall amendment to the constitution which permits vot- ers to recall representatives in the legislature who fail to keep their campaign promises. The amendment was adopted in 1926. He also spon- sored the state anti-sweat shop law. Mr. Huber was born Nov. 6, 1869 at Evergreen, Allegheny county, Pa. At the age of 10 he moved with his parents to a farm in the town of Pleasant Springs, Dane county. Af- ter his education in the common schools and Albion academy, he taught school. After graduating from the Uni- versity of Wisconsin law school in 1896, "he established law offices in Stoughton which were maintained until his death. He sensed as city attorney for four years and member of the Dane county board for two years. In 1903 he became executive clerk to Gov. Robert M. LaFollette sr., and the following year was elected to the assembly. From 1913 to 1925 he served as state senator from Dane county and in the latter year Rotary Speaker Points to Need of Educational Facilities for Boys of Rural Dis- tricts in State. Wisconsin is educating only about 38 per cent of its farm boys be- tween the ages of 14 and 20 years Louis M. Sassman, of the state vo- cational education department told his audience at the Wisconsin Rap- ids Rotary club meeting this noon There are farm boys now receiving education beyond the grade schools in the state in the agricultural courses of high schools while eligible youths are not getting any further education. The state of _ Georgia ranks higher than Wisconsin in providing education to its farm youth and Wisconsin ranks down near the bottom of the list of states, Mr. Sassman said. Need for Agricultural Schools There is a very large need for the four remaining county agricul- tural schools of the state, Mr. Sass- man said. These four schools are in danger of elimination because Gov. ed Schmedeman in his budget has recommend- message to the he first assumed office as lieutenant governor. Re-elected in 1926, 1928 and 1930, he held the office for eight successive years, longer than any other lieutenant governor. From the days of his early asso- ciation with the senior LaFollette, he was a staunch follower of the Progressive leader. Defying animos- ity which centered upon Senator La- Follette because of his opposition to America's entrance in the World war, he defended the senator's war record before the state legislature and challenged the wisdom of cen- suring the latter for his stand. In 1924 he wag chairman of the senator's campaign for the presiden- cy on a third party ticket. Fairness Unquestioned As presiding officer of the senate Mr. Huber earned the respect of friend and foe alike by his impartial interpretation of rules. A sticker for parliamentary eticjuette, he made many a senator feel the lash of his tongue and was never hesitant in wielding his gavel to keep order and decorum among the senators and gallery spectators but virtually none question his fairness. legislature that there be no funds appropriated for the state's share of their maintenance. Mr. Sassman said these county agricultural schools fill a definite place in the districts where they are located since they provide education to boys and girls from the rural districts dation that the state be asked to treat the agricultural schools in the same manner as the county normal schools, which are receiving only a thirty per cent reduction in appro- priation, if the governor's economy budget is adopted. He said it was only justice that the agricultural schools receive a thirty per cent re- duction instead of 100 per cent eli- mination of their appropriations. There are ninety farm boys and girls now enrolled in the courses of the Wood county agricultural school, who will be thrown out of their edu- cation this spring if the Schmede- man budget is adopted. LEGION OFFERS INOCULATIONS BOARD OF DIRECTORS ADOPTS CAMPAIGN OF FREE TREAT- MENTS AGAINST TYPHOID FEVER; WILL BEAR ALL EX- tion of both the Reichstag and the Prussian diet as his followers, in their jubilance over his accession to power, may be counted upon to make a spirited campaign in a new election. Dr. Alfred Hugenberg, minister of economics and agriculture and leader of the Nationalist party which holds the majority of in the Hitler cabinet, was less enthusi-! astic. The Nationalists lost heavily in the recent Lippe state election in- which. Hitler's National Socialists showed gains. _ To start the ball rolling, the Prus- sian Nazis presented a motion to dissolve the Prussian diet, this was certain to pass as both the Nazis and their foes, the Communists, fav- or dissolution and command a ma- jority of the votes. The national government appar- ently fears it will not get the de- sired enabling act from the present Reichstag to permit the Hitler cab- inet to rule for half a year with vir- tually dictatorial powers. Hope for Safe Majority By having all the public instru- ments of propaganda, especially the radio broadcasting system, at its A postcard mailed to his wife from Mound City gave details of the sale, at which he, as mortgage holder, was the only bidder. He described it as "all but add- ed Will Groundhog See His Shadow? Milwaukee, Feb. Wisconsin should prepare for six weeks more it believes in the groundhog tra- dition. This warning was issued to- day by Frank H. Coleman, government meteorologist. He bases it on his prediction the groundhog undoubtedly will see his shadow tomorrow. Now while this shadow bus- iness is purely legend, it is taken seriously by many ama- teur weather observers. Being a professional, Mr. Coleman lets the groundhog speak for himself. Personally Mr. Cole- man said he doesn't know whether there will be six more weeks winter or not. Anyway, he forecast, tomorrow will be fair with a temperature range of about 18 to 25. a note of foreboding which led to theory that a hitch-hiker may have been responsible for the mur- der. Hitch-Hiker Was "Sore' The card, received yesterday, by Mrs. Marr, read, in part: I had a hitch-hiker crawl on the rear at a filling station. I put him off at Pleasanton. If he was sore, lie tnay give me trouble down the road as he said he wanted to catch up with a friend in a Plymouth car. Mrs. Marr minimized the theory the foreclosure sale may have pro- voked action against her husband. She was inclined to put much cre- dence in the belief a hitch-hiker at- tacked him. Kansas City police and Kansas officers also were interested in the discovery near Columbus, Kas., not far from the scAe of Marr's slay- ing, of an abandoned motorcar identifed as one used by a gang of bank robbers. Released Kidnaped Officers The robbers, who obtained PENSE. who would not be able to go to high schools with agricultural courses and many who would not go to high schools because of the differences in the ages of the farm youth and the city children.

President Von Hindenburg- reap- pointed Dr. Franz Guertner, minis- ter of justice in the Von Papen and Schleicher cabinets, to the same of- fice in the Hitler cabinet. This com- pleted the Hitler ministry. The justice post was left open when the cabinet was formed with Nationalists and National Socialists on Monday in the hope that the Cen- trists would join. The latter declined to participate, however. Prussian Diet Convenes President Kerrl convened the Prussian diet in plenary session Sat- urday to discuss Jhe dissolution mo- tion for that body.

The motor car they were driving in their escape from Fort Smith was of the same make as the one men- tioned in connection with the hitch- hiker in Marr's postcard. Near the place where Marr was slain officers found a .38 calibre revolver, five empty shells, a shoe heel, a blood stained shirt and part of a pair of overalls.

MARVIN RESIGNS MILL POSITION PURCHASING AGENT OF NE- KOOSA EDWARDS PAPER COMPANY RETIRES DUE TO ILL HEALTH; HONORED BY ROTARY CLUB. A. U. Manin, for 34 years gen- eral purchasing agent of the Ne- koosa-Edwards Paper company, has resigned his position to take effect on Feb. I. His resignation was forc- ed by ill health it was stated at the offices of the Nekoosa-Edwards company. His successor has not yet been named. Mr. Marvin is a resi- dent of Nekoosa, and has been in the sen-ice of the company continu- ously since November, 1898. Made Honorary Member The Wisconsin Rapids Rotary club of which Mr. Man-in has been a member for about ten years today received his resignation from the club and voted to accept it with re- grets. Unanimously the club voted Mr. Man-in a life honorary mem- bership in the club. He is the second local member to receive such honors from the Ratarians, the Rt. Rev. William Reding being the first to receive the honorary membership. Has Unique Record The election to honorary member- ship in the Rotary club was voted unanimously as a mark of respect to Mr. Marvin for his faithful attend- ance. He has with one or two excep- tions, and then only because of emergency, kept a perfect record of attendance in the local club. For four years straight he had a 100 per cent attendance but when out of the city missed a meeting because he was wrongly informed of the date and place. He has often travelled many miles out of his way or cut ASSEMBLY VOTES ADMINISTRATION BANK MEASURES FIVE BILLS CONTAINED IN SCHMEDEMAN PROGRAM WOULD STABILIZE BANKS AND PERMIT BOARD OF DE- POSITS TO BORROW. Madison, Wis., Feb. Feb. scarcely a word of debate the assembly pushed through the administration's bank regulation program at a special session late yesterday and passed it on for sen- ate approval. Includes Five Bills The program consists of five bills, four pertaining to operation and tabilization of banking institutions and one incorporating the state joard of deposits so that applica- :ion can be made to the Reconstruc- :ion Finance corporation at Washi- ngton for a loan to make the pub- ic deposits fund solvent. Most objections to the bank bills riginating in the lower house were wiped out in assembly c6mmittee learings. A few amendments were offered from the floor but there was little discussion. The senate is expected to scrutinize the bills close- y before it votes on them. Can't Meet Claims Assemblyman Jerome Fox of DETROIT PLANT RESUMES WORK AFTER SHUTDOWN short trips in order to attend club meetings both at Wisconsin Rapids or in some other city where a Rotary club was in session. Several members spoke their high regard for Mr. Mar- vin at the Wednesday noon meeting (of the club. Gold Star Mother to Make Trip to France Mrs. George P. Fisher, 411 Ninth street south, has received an invita- tion from the war department at Washington, D. C., to visit the grave of her son, John P. Fisher, in the Meuse-Argonne cemetery, France, this summer. The invitation which was extended last summer was renewed January 1 of this year, and Mrs. Fisher said today that she Ihilton, fathered the bill to incor- orate the board of deposits. The state has been insuring municipal deposits in banks for about a year. The state fund started out without any surplus and due to the depres- sion faces millions of claims which it cannot pay at this time. The Fox bill would permit a loan from the R. F. C. to make the fund solvent. It is necessary to incorporate the board and give it the same status as an insurance company before the R. F. C. will authorize a loan. The bill passed without a dissenting vote. Continuation on a strengthened basis of the present policy of stabil- izing and readjusting banks is pro- vided in the bill of Assemblyman B. A. Mau, West Salem banker, which passed 93 to 0. This measure gives the banking review board wi- der powers than it now has. Another Mau bill, approved 87 to 2, permits all but chain banks to es- tablish a receiving station in place of another bank or one that has closed since 1929 but limits each bank to four stations and provides that they must be located in one county. The bill originally authorized re- ceiving stations in adjoining coun- ties. This provision was amended to meet objections against branch banking and a statement was added to the bill for the benefit of the courts that it is not the legislative intent to permit branch banking. As- semblyman Arthur A. Hitt Alma and Walter J. Dolan Shawano, voted against the measure. Another bill, by Assemblyman Ray Novotny of Oshkosh, extending the liability against stockholders from six months to a year after a bank closes, barely received the re- quired two thirds majority. The vote was 68 to 24. Perry Raises Objection Assemblyman Charles B. Perry, Milwaukee, objected partic- ularly to a provision in the Novotny bill that an assessment levied against a stockholder by the bank- ing department must be paid in six- ty days or it automatically becomes a court judgment against him. Pcr- COUNTY, CITY AND FEDERAB OFFICIALS CONDUCT IN. QUIRY INTO COMMUNIST AGITATION AMONG WORK- MEN. Detroit, Feb. inves- tigation to determine what, if any, Communistic agitation was connect- ed with the strike of Brigga Manufacturing company, employes which tied up production for more than a week and forced a shutdown of the Ford Motor company, was jegun today by federal, county and city officials. Production Resumed With the Briggs company, report- ng production "at full at ts Highland Park plant where jodies for Ford cars are made, and picket lines diminishing in strength, at all plants, members of the strika committee were questioned as to the origin of the strike. Robert M. Pilk- mgton, of Washington, commission- r of conciliation of the department >f labor, Prosecutor Harry S. Toy )f Wayne county, and police offici- als conducted the investigation. Meanwhile Ford officials said they were awaiting definite information from the Briggs company, on their production schedule before making any announcement regarding the re- opening of their factories through- out the country. Arrest Strike Director Philip Raymond, one-time Com- munist candidate for mayor of De- troit, and hired by the strikers io direct their campaign, was under arrest. The strikers insisted Ray- mond was hired as an individual, and declared the walkout was "a 100 per cent Briggs emploves strike." More than a score of persons have been arrested during the strike, five arrests coming last night .following a flurry of minor disorders at the company's plants. Charges against them range from disorderly conduct to inciting to riot. Flurry of Disorders A flurry of disorders broke out last night in the Briggs strike, which had been characterized by po- lice as the most orderly they ever had seen, a few hours after officials had announced that assembly lines again were moving with newly hir- ed workmen. Mounted and foot police charged a crowd of strikers who attempted to board a street car to which Briggs workmen had been escorted by policemen. Five men were arrest- ed, making 21 in all who had been taken into custody. Hazen McCuly, 40, reported that four men beat him with rubber hose as he neaied his home in Ferndale after a day's work at the Briggs plant. Harold Milligan, 27, was stabbed by an unidentified man, who, he said, he admonished not to take a job m the Briggs factory. Salvadore Succi, 40, was treated for head injuries he said were inflicted by strikers. Local C. M. T. C.

A two per cent penalty is charged on taxes paid between March 1 and March 20, the time that the treasurer turns the city tax roll over to the county. With the deadline for dog licenses Tuesday Mr. Norton was expecting to turn the list of dog owners who have not bought licenses over to the police department in accordance with a city ordinance.
