COLD, WINDY TONIGHT, TUESDAY SUPPORT YOUR COMMUNITY CHEST VOLUME 49, NO. 229 WINONA, MINNESOTA, MONDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 14, 1949 FIVE CENTS PER COPY EIGHTEEN PAGES TODAY- Politics Warming Up in State By Jack Welnberg St. onrush of activity aimed at next year's election by the Democratic-Farmer-Labor par ty presents little cause for worry on the part of 1949 House Speak- er John A. Hartle of Owatonna.' One of the top leaders of the con-, servative majority in the House Representatives, Hartle believes! the liberals are shooting their wadi far too early to do much good. In fact, he believes the conservatives will benefit by the D.-F.L. attack at this early stage of the game. He thinks the conservative majority not only will retain its hold but will pick up a few representatives who last session lined up with the liberal minority group. Although Hartle isn't ready to name any names, he said he has received assurances from a number of sol- ons that in 1951 they will switch allegiance from the liberal to the conservative group. And some of the names, he intimates, are im- portant ones. Not quite so sure, in fact very pessimistic about the whole thing is Representative George French of Minneapolis, an avowed con- servative and one of its leaders. Unless French deliberately is cry- ing "wolf" to throw the opposi- tion out of step, he thinks the con- servative legislature as well as the Republican party itself are in for the fight of their lives. He is of the opinion that the party bicker- ing going on' among the state's con-, stitutlonal officers as well as what he calls the developing feeling of bitterness between the members of the legislature and the governor will give the D.-F.L. party an cellent chance to take over state' government in January, 1951. State Senator Frank Dougherty of Fairmont, an upper chamber conservative, is inclined to go along with French in his size-up of the situation. The senator said It has been many years since the Republican party has been so bad Stray Bullets Kill 2 Hunters Republican-Herald photos One Woman Was the two cars shown above collided on highway 35, near Bluff siding, Wis., Sunday night.

But Repre- sentative Stanley Holmquist 01 Grove City, a staunch supporter of the governor, can't quite agree. He said that the Arkansas bond squab- ble, for example, seems to have had little Impact on voters out his way. Even Representative Floyd Flom of Glenwood, another strong backer of the governor, couldn't see eye to eye with Holmquist on that one. He is of the opinion the G.O.P. has a very difficult job ahead for itself to offset the work being done by the opposition D.Pi.

Mrs. Floume and a small child were riding in a car driven by Mr. I Flourne when the accident occurred. According to Sheriff Rhyner. Donald Wantock, 119 Zumbro street, was driving' south on high- iway 35 when the car immediately ahead of him slowed suddenly to i turn off the highway. Wantock turned into the north jlane of traffic to avoid colliding with the car ahead of him and I drove into the path of the Flourne j automobile. First Aid At Hospital I An ambulance was summoned to Itake Mrs. Flourre to the hospital ibut she was released after receiv- ing first aid treatment for cuts and j bruises. Meanwhile, a La Crosse man was killed in a head-on collision near Chamberlin, S. Saturday. Victim of the mishap was 20-year- old George Robert Haas who had (Continued on Page 9, Column 2.) MISHAPS for the woods again at noon, out to get the deer that already has given him troubles. If persistence and sacrifice wiil do it, Moody should get the animal. He's even disregarding the advice of a doctor in going back to the woods. The doctor says he should rest a while, "but I told him I didn't have time for Moody explains. The day began peacefully enough for Moody, although'he had stayed up most of the night trying to fix his gun. Early this morning he parked his car near the Biesanz stone quarry and then he and his 12-year-old son, Virgil, started up the hill. About 8 a.m. they spotted the rear end of a deer sticking from behind a tree, some 40 yards away. Moody fired, the deer came into full view and he prepared to reload. The gun went off before he had the shell fully in the cham- ber, and Moody had a badly mangled thumb. "But I didn't pay any atten- tion to my thumb. I knelt down and tried to fix the gun. It's an old pump gun, but the ejector doesn't work. I worked on it five or ten minutes. All the time the deer was standing there, looking at us. "All at once the boy yelled, 'He's coming after us. I got this tree.' "So I grabbed another tree. But when the buck saw we were in the trees, he stopped and walked away." But even then Moody wasn't worrying about his thumb. Be- fore "walking the mile and a half or so down to the car, be looked around for the deer. Then be finally decided to leave Virgil there while he drove to their home at 523 Macemon street. He got an old- er son, Jack, drove back to their parking place, tramped up the hill, looked a while for the deer and then he finally came to Winona to see a doctor, leaving the two sons on the scene. By that time it was nearly three Bours after the accident. A little later. Moody, looking at his thumb, commented, "The doctor said he would try to save it. He wanted me to rest a while. "I'm going after that deer again, but I'm afraid somebody else will get him. It's full of hunters out there." He walked off, looking for someone who would lend him a gun.
