Death Takes 'Topsy,'
Famous Old Actress
WATERTOWN, S. D., March 14
- (A) - Death has removed one
of the last notables of the "golden
age" of the American stage, Mrs.
Fannie Osborn Porteous, who
played the original role of Topsy+
in "Uncle Tom's Cabin." She was
85 years old.
Although associated with most
great figures in the theatre in this
country during the latter part of
the nineteenth century, so quietly
had she lived in retirement here
for 28 years that comparatively
few of her neighbors knew the
story of her picturesque life.

Hand In Hine
Bank Robbery
Believe He Led An Assault
On Iowa Bank; Similar
Tactics At Sioux Falls
CHICAGO, March 14.- AP)- The
sinister hand of "Whittling" John
Dillinger, Indiana desperado, was
seen today in a $52,000 robbery of
First National bank of Mason City,
The loot of the raid, staged Tues-
day by seven machine gun bandits,
marked a new high in a recent series
of assaults on midwest banks. Wit-
nesses said they believed the leader
was Dillinger.
Tactics employed by the gunmen
were similar to those used by the
bandits who stole between $10,000
and $20,000 March 6 from a bank at
Sioux Falls. They were also like the
methods of robbers who made away
with $21,000 at Atchison, Kan., on
In each instance they took host-
ages with them as shields.
Arriving at the Mason City bank,
the bandits scattered a rain of ma-
chine gun bullets, injured two per-
sons, scooped up the cash and
escaped under the protection of a
dozen hostages.
Vigilantes and police withheld their
fire as the robbers' car, its running
board lined with bystanders and
bank employes, roared out of town.
The hostages were released unharmed
a short time later.
James Buchanan, city policeman,
was the first to connect Dillinger with
the raid when he said, after viewing
photos, "I'd stand on a statement,
that the leader of the bank bandits
had the appearance of Dillinger." G
Sheriff Jack Robertson later de-
clared, "I'm convinced now that the
leader was Dillinger."
The wounded are R. L. H. James,
secretary of the Mason City school1
board, shot in the leg by a stray'
bullet, and Clarence McGowan, whoi
attempted to pursue the bandit car. i

O'Roke Declares F o r e s t
Zoology To Be Scientific
hI Radio Broadcast
In a University radio talk over
station WJR yesterday, Prof. Earl
C. O'Roke, of the School of Forestry
and Conservation discussed forest
zoology as a science and as a part of
"The student gets his forest zoology
largely from studies made directly in
the field and from contacts with his
professors who, themselves, are doing
productive work in the science,"
the speaker stated.
Although other uses of the forest
are well regulated and orderly, wild
life management has not yet reached
this stage, Professor O'Roke declared.
The reason assigned for this situation
was that we have not yet delegated
to trained men the authority to man-
age such resources.
Predicting a new deal for wild life
management, the speaker outlined a
plan for controlled hunting devised
so as to better distribute the hunters
as to time and place, and at the same
time to harvest the crop of animals
in a scientific manner.
In addition to the use of wild ani-
mals as a game crop, Professor
O'Roke calledgattention to other
