senator of ten mentioned as potential guberna torial timber and Robert McBirnic of Boone an active party worker Whether the field can be cleared in the senatorial race and one can didate decided upon was problem atical in this spokesmans view Senator L J Dickinson definitely is n the race for reelection and un less others can be kept out of the race a primary tilt thus is assured Hammill Might Change Reports have come here how ever that former Gov Dan W Tur ner will not be a senatorial candi date and that former Gov John Hammill doped to enter the pri mary probably would change his story was that a group of Hammills political allies met re cently in Des Moines and decided 0 advise him against entering the race That would leave Smith W Brookhart former senator as the most likely campaigner to tangle with Dickinson His plans however remain undiscovered He announc ed several months ago he would re turn to Iowa and that was con strued as an indication he planned again to seek the senatorship but he has declined to commit himself publicly The Iowa Republican campaign still is in the conversation stage but increasing activity is being re flected by gossip among the rela tive

written statement of he facts to assist the prosecution of said matter and all of my de puties as well as myself have ren dered all possible assistance to said prosecuting attorney No Part in Kacket At no time did I or the deputies involved seek to cover up the transaction and neither I nor my deputies have ever had any part in any corrupt slot machine racket or other type of illegal enterprise during my administration nor have I nor any of my deputies ever re ceived any protection money or pay off money from any source for the purpose of allowing slot machines to operate in this county Rumors with respect to the above transaction having come to the attention of the board of super visors and particularly to the at tention of Harry Sondergaard one of the members he properly and in line with the duty of his office in vestigated the matter ajid gave the public information with respect to what had occurred I acknowledge that in the par ticular transaction referred to there was a mistake and technical viola tion of duty on the part of the de puties and on my part in overlook ing the matter at the time and that something definite should be done by the board of supervisors and the county attorney of this county to insure that no similar transaction shall ever again occur in this county Handed Resignations After further talk with the de puties with respect to the matter Deputies Studer Deach and Wallace have handed me their resignations which I submit to the board of supervisors with this statement While it should be recognized that this is a drastic penalty to pay for the technical violation of duty yet I believe that it is just in order that it may be finally established that every technical violation of duty cannot go unnoticed in the fu ture and I recognize that the mem bers of the board of supervisors and the county attorney have acted fully in the line of their duty in this matter in proceeding as they have and have given fair consideration to all matters concerned Respectfully submitted J M ROBERTSON County Attorneys Report The report of the county attorney was as follows To the honorable board of su Dervisors of Cerro Gordo countv Iowa The

certain slot machines which had been con demned by the district court in the office of the sheriff of Cerro Gordo county Iowa Evidence shows that said referred to slot machines were dismantled and unserviceable It appears that some time in the month of January 1935 two state agents interviewed the sheriff and told him that the knew where he could sell confiscated slot machines and the sheriff ignored them re ferring them to his deputies Did Sell Slot Machines The investigation further dis clcses that the three deputies Jack Deach Max Studer and John Wai ace did sell certain confiscated
