tence, it was anonunced Friday by
Warden A. M. Dalrymple. Mrs.
Wurzbarger has been suffering
with asthma- for several months
and it Is believed she is slowly dy
ing. For the past three weeks her
condition has been regarded as
dangerous. Mrs. Wurzbarger was
convicted on a charge of killing
her husband at the Indian school
with a hammer late in 1921 and
was received as a federal prisoner
at the penitentiary February 23,
"This is a day of significance,
for 192 years ago today there oc
curred the birth of George Wash
ington. who in later life advocat
ed a policy of square and equal
justice and absolute honesty in
public affairs," declared Governor
Walter M. Pierce, in speaking up
on the life and characteristics of
the Father of His Country at the
Lions club luncheon Friday. Gov
ernor Pierce did hot deliver an
address but gave an informal talk
upon the first. president of the na
tion that was thoroughly enjoyed
by all ,
'It was courage and common
sense that made'' him the hero of
his early military expeditions,"' the
governor continued. 'lt was
through his foresight and eharac
ter that there resulted the birth
of" a free country."
In commenting upon the Revo
lutionary war, Governor Pierce
pointed out and explained why it
was not a popular war. None of
the wealthy people welcomed the
conflict and it was decried by
traders and ship owners because
Of business reasons. The conflict
was characterized as a war of fac
tions. Even in England there was
an element of sympathy for the
colonists and the idea that a na
tion could govern itself,' existant
down through ages,. made the En
glish anxious to see the test put
into actual practice. Governor
Pierce declared. Governor Pierce
contrasted the Revolutionary war
to the world war, which saw one
man out of every 25 population in
the service." During the Initial
struggle the percentage was one
man in 100 population. England
bad to resort to Hessians, which
were hired to fight her battles.
"The real general is he who can
fight and -lose and then gather
his remnants together and fight
again," Governor Pierce said in
closing. "This trait wa3 possess
ed by Washington. He was not
a partisan and . though a semi
aristocrat by birth and made
wealthy man through marriage.
he placed the ablest men In his
cabinet regardless of party affllla
tions. His "policy almost shames
us in these disgraceful days

Washington was the most marvel

try men ".
