HOME EDITION VOL XXXIX FIVE CENTS A COP7 ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY JUNE 20 1933 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO BECTIONB SECTION ONE NO 221 Big Change in Lineup Independents Show Old Form Just at Close By HERBERT FLUMMER WASHINGTON June 20 The last minute revolt in the senate against the reduction in compensa tion to veterans may have knock ed into a cocked hat some of the outside impres sions as to the lineup in the changed political front on capitol It co ncerned that group of in dependent repub licans led by Senator George Norris and al though the pres idents program GEORGE NHNORRIS won out in the end there were live ly momenta before this result en sued During all the previous trying and protracted experiences of the ad ministration one might have got the Impression that this group was about the only tranquil one in Washington Unusual for Them It was unusual for these indepen dents too Ordinarily the indepen dents in congress are the tempestu ous ones that bring grief to those in authority Of course its true that Young Bob LaFoliette of Wisconsin broke loose for a while during the senates investigation of the house of Mor gan He endeavored to prove to the senate tiat apart of the opposition to the proposed St Lawrence Wa terway was linked up with the Mor gan list of favored investors Bui there were lew such departures As Some Saw It Political observers in I the capital thought they had explanations for their tranquility Somebelieved it was because many of them hfd bached Roosevelt and thus had a independent republicans ahbuli raise a howl Werent they seeing many of the principles of govern merit for which they have fought so long being written into the law Those may or may not have been the reasons for the spirit of coop eration shown by that group toward the administration before the revol on veterans compensation Then They Balked But they did kick over the traces on that issue and in typical fashion If you can picture a man with the reputation for insurgency tha George Norris of Nebraska has to say nothing of every other membe of his group lined up in the same voting column with Old Guard ant various other republicans then you have it Perhaps the action of the inde pendents was just another affirma tion of the credo independent subscribed to by all in the group LOCAL VOTE ON REPEAL IS LIGHT U S Silver Proposal Receives Strong Support AMERICA WARNS THATITWILLNOT RETURN TO GOLD Pittman and Hull Much Encouraged at Hope of Success LONDON June 20 Key Pittmans monetary resolution the main purpose of which is the re habilitation of silver was the dom inant issue before the world econ omic conference today and received such support that both Secretary of State Cordell Hull and the senator later declared they were very much encouraged In connection with the discussion of this important resolution the American representatives made two vital points definitely clear1 That the resolution not only has the approval of the American dele gation but meets with the approv al of the president of the United States Must Be Convinced That the United States govern ment will not return to the gold standard until it is sure that standard will work The resolution was before the sub committee on permanent monetary affairs There was an interesting development when through the in tercession of Senator Pittman James P Warburg who is advising tie Americans in technical matters or Clara Zetkin Noted GeVman Communist and Feminist Dies MOSCOW June 20 Zetkin noted German feminist and communist died unexpectedly last night at a sanitorium at Arch angeiskoye near Moscow In an other month she would have been 76 years old ingfrom the floor althoughhe Is not a member of the committee It was Mr Warburg who told the committee bluntly that America xvould not accept the gold standarc again until certain that it was workable Answer to France Mr Warburgs declaration pre sumably was drawn out by the fact that France and other gold bloc na tions had immediately pounced On one clause of the Pittman resolu tion as giving them a chance to fur ther their drive to force America to revert to the gold standard and to stabilize exchange This is clause two which provides that gold shoud be reestablishec as the international measure of ex change values Viscount Hailsham Great Brit government
