    [In 1916, Mr. Fonda joined the National Security League, a pro-war political activism group, and had the credit of capturing the first German Spy that was secured in this country. His name was Antone Havercamp, who was caught in the rear of the Criminal Court Building of Kansas City and who had in his possession about three and a half bushels of bomb parts. Through the efforts of Mr. Fonda he was incarcerated at Fort Riley. Mr. Fonda was the chairman of the United States Labor Board of Jackson County, Missouri, and was also United States Food Commissioner for the County. He was a most active worker in support of the government throughout the war period. He had charge of the Liberty Loan Drive for Independence and raised four hundred and ten thousand dollars, this being twenty thousand dollars above the quota. The entire expense of the drive, including the raising of this amount, was only seventy dollars and thirty-five cents.]

    ['It Ain't Me', Fonda Says... Justice Accused As Collector Asserts Folks Buy Too Much - The last few weeks have seen another flare-up about Justice Anthony P. Fonda's stand in Independence. Almost periodically in the twenty one years he has been a justice in Family Court he has been assailed as being a motorists' pest, a debt collectors' haven. This time the Kansas City Bar Association Committee has referred to some Fonda collection cases as "legal robbery." Several suits against him have been filed and writs of prohibition issued. But Justice Fonda tells how matters really stand. "The whole trouble," according to Anthony P. Fonda, Justice of the Peace at Independence, "is that people live beyond their means. They can't pay their debts, the installments aren't installed and the lawyers come into the justice courts and the merry go round of summonses, judgments and garnishments begins. But brother," Justice Fonda says, raising his voice so there shall be no mistake, "I didn't have nothin' to do with that. I gotta do what the law says I should do. A man comes in here and says somebody owes him $100 and I don't know if he's a saint or a liar. I gotta issue the summons."
