the cash bonus as an amend ment evidently figuring the senate was hi a mood to go the limit on the veterans question Samo Group Votes By 51 to 40 the same group that full restoration of the federal pay cut put over yesterday the restoring to the rolls thousands of SpanishAmerican war veterans removed because they could not prove service connection for their disabilities Eighteen democrats voted with 32 republicans and the farmerla 1 fcorite Shlpstead for the 60000 000 proposal AH 40 votes in oppo sition came from democrats IOWA RESIDENTS IN WASHINGTON Continued from Pnie 1 it is commonly known that the guiding spirit is Tom Slowle i When B M Jacobsen was sent to congress In 1930 Slowle came down from Clinton to be his secretary Two years of republican adminis tration with Jacobsen the only dem ocrat from Iowa left him In an inconspicuous position The wind changed abruptly and five brandnewdemocrats came down from Iowa Slowie had been around was well acquainted with the Inner workings of the congres sional machinery and helped the new members through the confusion of their first eession He had some thing to do with their committee IN DAYS NEWS A jury at Covlngton Ky awarded Miss Evelyn Hazen former Knoxville Tenn school teacher in her suit against Ralph P Scharringhaus for al leged breach of promise and al leged betrayal into intimate relations Associated Press assignments all of which apparent ly was appreciated Kept From Bandwagon Just when Slowie entered the Eicherforjudge movement is not known but conversation with the democratic house members indicates they look to him for much strategic counsel In some quarters Slowie is cred ited with keaping alive the house delegations famous esprit de corps in the judgeship matter Lacking which there might have been a movement to climb on Senator Mur phys bandwagon when the going was tough There have been indications from reliable sources that Eicher would not receive the appointment Some of the house members have had that information but they also have been assured Elchera pros pects wee brilliant Still Could Compromise Hovering over the scene Is the definite danger that Iowa will lose the judgeship with Arkansas men tioned most dependably as the bene ficiary of Iowas disagreement Senator Murphy would like to see Seth Thomas of Fort Dodge agri culture department solicitor ap pointed Yet his position has not been advertised publicly and he still could compromise without embar rassment outside the Towa yards do not believe the administration would appoint an lowan over Mur phys headand Murphy himself has made plain he would not swing to Eicher May Change Mod Still the house members are kept from compromising with Murphy because they are told the senator may change his mind and Eicber may be appointed even without the senatorial blessing Slowie is said by some of the lowans to be one chief source of information and the matter of in formation is the key to the situa tion If Eicher Is appointed the house members will have scored a victory If another lowan is ap pointed they will have lost a battle without losing a war If Iowa loses the appointment altogether there will be several long faces around the democratic campfire TWOlENHELD TO JURY AT ALGONA Identified by Farm Woman as Pair Who Attacked Her and Husband ALGONA Feb Davis and Perl Reynolds were held to the jrand

and highways for 33 states including Iowa Nebraska the Da kotas and Minnesota SMALL LOAN BILL PASSES SENATE Continued from Page 1 reference to the fact that they should be divided as nearly equally as possible between the two political parties Disposed of Amendments It Its work on the small loans measure today the senate disposed of numerous amendments defeating two important changes and adopt ing several corrective amendments Two of the amendments defeated were sponsored by Senator Lafe Hill of Nora Springs and sought to Insert additional provisions in the interest of the borrowers Opponents of the Hill amend ments however contended they might work too great a hardship on loan companies so that they would not provide money to Individuals needing small loans One important amendment by Senator Hill would have exempted from execution household goods se lected hy the head of a family and not exceeding regardless of whether the exemption had been waived or not by the debtor Save Some Furniture Senator Hill in urging adoption of his amendment contended that this provision to permit the head of a family to save some household furniture was only fair and that the legislature previously had taken a similar step to safeguard the rights of farmers The vote on the amendment was 10 to 34 The other Hill amendment which was defeated by a vote of 11 to 33 would have directed that payments be credited ontheprinciple of the loan first and then on the interest An amendment which the senate adopted reduced the required cap ital of loan companies applying for license from 510000 to 55000 The bill now goes over to the house for further consideration Leave for Fort Dodge OSAGE Feb Arsers ot Osage and hia orchestra have just completed an engagement at the Mason City which has covered about five months and left Sunday for Fort Dodge to take a similar engagement DRlff Continued from race I evident sincerity Besides to be considered beautiful or accomplish ed by Tiggie was surely no very high recommendation His opinion was far too and straightforward to be of value to anyone And it was the general be lief that if he ever did marry his wife would be as dull and heavy and spiceless as himself Tiggie Turner had hia points He had never been known to do a shabby action or to say in any mans absence what he would not have said with equal stapliplty to his face And perhaps for this very reason he was seldom embroiled in any bitterness and pursued his even course with few obstacles He had a naturally happy and contented dis position and vas almost unfailingly popular among men It was only such as were lacking in uprightness who despised him for a fool only those of complex mind who failed to appreciate the broad simplicity of this man who passed without re proach in aworld that was certain ly not free from temptation At the end of another halfhour of careful meditation he went back in search of his new acquaintance He scarcely expected to find her In the same place and his expectations were justified She had gone from the promenadedeck Philosophically he went below to pursue his quest waylaid a stewardess and dispatch er her to cabin 53 with the infor mation that Captain Turner was waiting outside and would like a word with Its occupant It was hot a large boat and this In a way made things more difficult A few seconds passed the stew ardess returned Mrs Norman Is Just coming sir if you dont mind waiting He continued to wait with no sign of Impatience She came at last moving quickly nervously her face deadwhite against the white of her dress Oh it is you she said Have have him Somehow he knew by the way she spoke that she anticipated the na ture of his reply but that fact did not make it any easier He answered her simply and flatly with the truth No He isnt on board He didnt take a ticket ticket He saw her hand go to her heart and a sudden hot fury surged wlth Yet he stood motionless fac ing her In the dim passage whitp the throb and whirr of the distant glnes drove them on their way BE CONTINUED JOHNSON GIVES PROGRAM OF NRA Continued from 1 ture or a kind of pep meeting They are botn In deadly earnest and the purpose of them Is to mop up the errors shortcomings and mistakes of the rapid process of codification which measured in figures of employment has already covered about 90 per cent of Amer ican industry and which in a rela tively short time will have covered It all Welcoming the critics Johnsoni turned a fresh attack on those who make unwarranted aspersions on the good faith of men assisting here Shake Public Confidence He assailed also those who make attempts by furtive innuendo to shake public confidence ry out right lies or halfbaked and ignor ant assertions respecting acts and policies he added I think we have a right to ans wer such statements to the Amer ican people to substitute facts for nonsense and where we know the circumstance of such destructive and sterile criticism to state those circumstances especially when we know the motive of such sniping and sapping is to deceive the pub lic for some particular purpose political or purpose subversive of the good He denounced also those who as sailed the blue eagle campaign as a failure as an actual retarder of re covery through boosting prices ahead of purchasing power and as a campaign of ballyhoo and pro paganda Talk of Ballyhoo What is this talk of ballyhan he called It is that some of these enemies of higher wages and short er hours object because we went over their heads straight to the people with the blue eagle and showed workers how they could ev ery one cooperate to pet the bene fits intended for themby this act It was to these gentlemen too terrifyingly simple All that people had to do was to patronize blue eagle firms and ignore the rest No employer could afford not to have the blue eagle and to have the blue eagle he had to play the game That is the reason for this cam paign of misrepresentation of NRA He conceded that compliance and public support had laerged Will Not Lag Long But it will not lag long he added We are going out to re store public information about the blue eagle in any region where that may be it what you will and chlselers big and little call it plenty of names the blue eagle must be made Indispensable to popular support for every busi ness enterprise in this country As to the cold hard facts of this NRA job Johnson recited That as soon as the first big in dustries had come in and shown the way it was necessary to bring the entire business of the country in at one sweep to protect one industry from another and to halt specula tive overproduction at cheap wages Increased Employment That the blue eagle campaign netted an increased employment on the most conservative basis of 2750000 with a three billion pay roll increase for 92 per cent of what he said he forecast in a press conference on June 6 That far from running up prices ahead of purchasing power NRA had between September and Febru ary brought about this substantial increase In purchasing power while the cost of living as reported by the Industrial conference board had moved from Septembers 779 per cent to 773 per cent in December 775 in January and 778 at present Montanas 1933 wheat crop was approximately 28000000 bushels or about onehalf the 1932 total HOUSE APPROVES COMPROMISE BILL Continued from 1
