Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 10, 1933, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Edited for the Home VOL XXXIX IlVE CENTS A COPY ASSOC1ATKD PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS ME EDITION MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY JUNE 10 1933 IBIS PAPER CONSISTS OP TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 213 No Chances for Novice Whole Show Stolen by Roosevelt in Extra Term By HEKBKKT FLUMMER WASHINGTON June 10 One of the interesting phases of this session of congress which has been at work since a few days after President Roose velts inaugura tion appears in the manner in which individ uality has been submerged It rarely fails at a session which has lasted as long as the present one that some new name does not flash to the fore or the reputation of an oldtimer in the senate or house be enhanced Generally speaking such has not been the case on capitol hill at this session Its been pretty much of a oneman show since congress met on March 9 President Roosevelt has held the center the stage vir tually all the time Hope Flushed Novices This is far different from what many observers thought would hap pen at the start In the house there were 127 new members many of whom had come to Washington in tent on making a name for them selves from the start They had campaigned hard and had promised much They were de termined to make good Thus you saw an attempt at organization among these newcomers in the beginning which had for its purpose wresting from the leadership a greater share for themselves in the conduct of the house And also there were heard many statements like the one uttered by a new mem ber from Nebraska Nothing but Talk I didnt come down here to lean on anybodys shoulder If we dont do any more for the country than a lot of old members have we stay here We might as well biff fcesBonBlbtUty now as two it miichj in this rdBpect was done be yond bold assertions Once the president started his legislative pro gram moving and the organization of the house clamped down with its iron hand nearly everything else was over Opportunity was not afforded in many instances for even bold asser tions Talk delays legislation and what the administration wanted was legislation and not talk Ifs and Maybes Whether these conditions will con tinue to prevail will depend largely upon what happens after congress quits and goes home Then if dur ing the summer the program that has been set in motion at the presi dents insistence begins to bring the country hack to a reasonable sort of prosperity his hold on congress next winter perhaps will be as strong as it is now or maybe stronger If his program on the other hand does not give to the country what is expected therell probably be trouble in store for him in January Individuality in this case might refuse to be submerged as it has been in the past There might be a very determined effort on the yart of congress to take the bit in its own mouth and go a way of its own choosing 12
