Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - December 26, 1929, Mason City, Iowa DECEMBER 26 MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE Senate Popular With Home FolksStewart CONTINUED FKOM PAGE 1 to providingthe nation with a new kind of senators who it was hoped would suit the rank and file of the voters considerably tors chosen by direct ballot as a substitute for the old method of laving the state legilslatures elect them The detail which the standpat ters the efficiency experts and all the other critics evidently neglect to take into consideration is that this change not only was intended to provide more popular it actually did provide more popular ones The critics obviously are still firm In the faith that the hoi polloi con tinues to regard the average senator as a doddering reactionary old mossback just as in the first decade of the 1900s and earlier whereas in reality the hoi polloi regards the typical senator of today as a decid edly more uptodate statesman than the corresponding member of the house of representatives JJECAUSE he is vastly more con spicuous than a representative a senator simply has got to be more of his states wishes than a representative needs to be to the wishes of his congressional district A representative is all but lost among 435 Pew people know how he votes fewer care His party tells him how to vote anyway A senator looms up in a group ot only 96 Let him cast a

representatives end of the capitol always was crowded the senate gallery empty Today the senate plays to standing room only the representatives are deserted That tells the story The senate is the

further bettering conditions were being given care ful study With the approval of the treasury Prohibition Commissioner James M Doran asserted that Bor ahs condemnation of the entire prohibition personnel was unfor tunate and bound to have a dis heartening effect upon the morale of the service Never Greater Zeal Informed of the Mitchell and Doran statements the Idaho sena tor met the attorney generals ref erence to efforts to improve en forcement with the remark that evidently Its conditions were such as to call for an effort and an heroic effort He added that he had no means of knowing how much progress hag been made as its results have not yet appeared on the face of things Mitchell said that in fairness to tho men now engaged in the prohi bition service he could not let Borahs criticism pass unchal lenged There has never been he asserted greater zeal in the en forcement of the liquor laws Improved in Past 6 Months He went on to say that more can be accomplished when congress is ready to approve legislation carry ing out the administrations recom mendationsfor more adequate law enforcement machinery His de partment has been atwork for months he added on measures de signed to improve personnel relieve congestion in the courts and reor ganize the enforcement agencies There has been improvement in the last six months he declared He asserted that to say that pro hibition cannot be enforced with the present personnel comes peril ously near to saying that it can not be enforced at all He added that on the whole we are not likely to find a more loyal and con scientious groun nf men than are now servingunder me Statement Is Encouraging Borah said Mitchells statement was encouraging but that the truth of the business is that the personnel is in need of drastic over haulingand if the attorney general is engaged in that work strength to his arm He continued that if there is any proposal before congress which will help this particular feature of the situation that also should be speed ed but he added that he knew no proposal which will reach the condition as I see it in this particu lar matter Senior Year Brings YouthsRevoltClaim CONTINUED FBOM PAGE 1 tildes of 3500 Iowa school children toward law made this year by B G Lockhart professor of psychol ogy at Drake university The youngsters answered 51 questions about 20 laws more or leas familiar to children The standard used for measuring their answers was almost August beingthe re plies to the same questions by SO lawyers of the highest rank in Iowa The children ranged from the fourth grade to the twelfth The lawyers scored a percentage of 4808 and the fourth graders 4407 The childrens percentage rose until its peak was in the eleventh grade with 4729 Then the twelfth grade dropped to 4608 College graduates rose to 4758 a point higher than the grades A small town civic club was below even the twelfth graders with a score of 4573 Finds Tendency to Slump We found said Dr Lockhart thatattitude toward law improves with each intelligence until high school At the highest level of in telligence in high school we discov er a tendency to fall below or per haps we had better say deviate from the attitude that does not con form to the adults It is the influ ence of this group in grade 12 that pulls down their mean score The significance of this finding may be far reaching and worthy of exhaus tive research Sex appears to have no influence of consequence on attitude toward law In grades 11 and 12 the girls are shown to have on attitude slight ly nearer that of adults than the boys This difference is small but constant Social and economic status is of no consequence in determining atti tude toward law The outstanding conclusion is that children do not differ greatly from adults in this attitude We find a lawless attitude as frequently among those of high intelligence as among those of low Lawless attitude seems to be a problem of the individual Continue
