MONDAY JANUARY 27 1930 UNITED PRESS AND INTERNATIONAL NEWS SUPPLEMENTAL SERVICE NO 94 Young Is Factor Wisconsiji Senator Is Proving Him self By CHARLES P STEWART rASHINGTON Jan Bob LaFollette has been

recognized as one of the giants of the upper house of con gress Observers are arriving now at the conclusion that he gives every promise of a career for his sire if he could watch it to be proud of ft 3 A GREAT mans son is at an ob vious advantage in some re spects in others about equally han dicapped On the one hand it is highly im probable that young Bob would be a senator at 35 except by what amounts to inheritance Able as he might be and as it is beginning to appear that he really is the chances are that he would have had to wait a dozen or 15 years to attain his present position by his own effort A 12 or 15year jump on ones generation is worth having That is to say it is worth having provided the individual to whom such a lead is given is prepared al lv ready to make the most of it Other wise it may be just the thing to spoil his future by furnishing him with the opportunity to fall before he is prepared to do himself the full of maturity rpHERE is no question that his best wishers were pretty uneasy when young Bob first took his sen vate seat in 1925 less than a year jftjj above the minimum age required to tenable him to qualify for it It is a testimonial to the sound of his judgment that he was in lao hurry to prove himself j A mediocre performance by an equally youthful senator of obscure pplitical parentage perhaps would nave passed muster as a tolerably

would be a mighty hard com parison 1 AT all events young Bob has kept decidedly quiet until rather re cently Not that he is the boister ous type of senator yet Still grad ually he has been coming out of his oratorical shell to ex cellent effect In the meaniime as might have been expected whispers were start to go around that he did not measure up to his father It vas just as the senate was making up its mind to this effect Turn n Inge ii Column 1 KOSSUTH RUM RUNNER TAKEN Automobile Chase of Three Miles Ends in Victory for Sheriff ALGONA Jan Satur day afternoon after a red hot auto mobile chase
