"Practically all my life I have lived
in youth Bend and have never broken
the silence until now."
These were the opening1 words of a
"sledge, hammer" speech delivered by
Joseph L. Oliver when he grot to his
feet at tho noon day luncheon Wed
nesday to declare that he is to be one
of the "boosters" for the South Bend
Chamber of Commerce and that he
will take an active part in future ac
tivities. "outh Bend has been at a standstill
for years. Many things have gone to
pether that have pulled the city down.
The ity has met with a certain
growth, but nothin.tr really bi has
happened until now." he continued.
"We must congratulate tho city on
having secured for its leaders such
men as H. CI. Spauldinjr and L.ucius
B. Wilson, for to them will be due the
real making of youth Bend. The work
being started by them, will mean the
nia-kino' of the city."
Trntvs llitory of City.
Brietly he traced the commercial
history of the last oO years, pointing
out stages of laxity and progressive
ness. hellish and Jealous individual
matters, he said, have blocked the de
velopment of the city in hundreds of
cases. lie cited cases where the
larger industries have at different
times been on the point of leaving,
but for the efforts of some of the less
selfish men of the community. lie
pointed to one specific case, where he
said the city had lost an opportunity
to increase its population to 100,000
t y the action of a few unthinking
"1 can hardly see how South Bend
has even developed as it has with the
continued enmity existing between in
dividuals," continued he. "Xothim;
can be accomplished without an or
ganization of this kind which stands
for ital development.
Mut Be I'air to Manufacturers.
"The feeling often exists that the
factories should really carry tho bur
den of expenses, for city development.
The manufacturer will not stay in
vuith Bend if you persecute him.
More manufacturers will not come
here, if you persecute them. You
cannot expect them to p. ay the high
est t.ixes on their buildings. Their
assessments must be on the same basis

Oliver's speech was followej by an
enthusiastic applause. Uabbi Cron
bach. who presided asserted that
Mowly the clique spirit is dying and
that gradually the community is be

Clarence McCormick, a song and dance

a confession that they murdered I. W.
Moolat, a farmer of Ollie, Mo., and
robbed his body.
iMcCormick, for whom the Jowa au
thorities have been searching since
the murder on Oct. 4, insists he killed
Moolat after Mrs. McCullough lured
the farmer to take an auto ride at
night with her. Siieriff J. G. Grimer
of Keokuk county, and Sheriff W. K.
Knox of Wapello county stated today
they believed the woman committed
the murder and McCormick is trying
to shield her. The sheriffs were pres

fession. The woman was brought in
and asked to make a statement, but
merely nodded her head when Mc
Cormick repeated his story.

get him to go out in the auto with
Kuth. I went along. When we got
a mile out of lledrick I pulled a gun
and shot Moolat four times in the
