COPY ATEO PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY APRIL 131934 SUCTION ONE NO 160 What to Do AboutHuey Longs Flouting of Senate Courtesy Provoking DILLINGER RAIDS POLICE STATION By HERBERX PMJMMER TASHINGTON April 13 As far as the United Sta tes senate is con cerned as impor tant a question as any before it at the present is what is to be done about Huey Long There can be no doubting the fact that Louisi anas kingfish1 presents a prob lem which has that whole body completely baf fled What at first was lookeS upon as something amusing now has come to be regard ed by senators as nothing less than a menace His latest rampage which occu pied the better part of two days while the senate was struggling to dispose of the tax bill has brought the question of what to do about Long to something resembling a climactic point Rules under which senators gov ern themselves have withstood all attempts at change They are cherished guarded and upheld by them one Unwritten Rules The unwritten rules are dearer to the hearts of senators than those set forth in the black leather bound volume known as the Senate Man ual These are grouped under the broad title of senatorial courtesy Its Longs flouting of senatorial which causes his col leagues so much concern And theres just nothing they can do about it Consider the lament of Joe Robinson democratic leader Its regrettable1 said he break ing in on Longs harangue that we cant always Direst out subjects on rights which agnate rules giveus but which we possess independent ly of the rules to entertain to ex press our views on public questions unrestrained and unintimidated by denunciatory expressions from oth ers who differ from us What he meant and what othe senators think is that Huey is nol playing cricket Long Stands Alone Its not cricket from a senatorial standpoint for a colleague to threat en to invade another senators state and lend his aid to defeat him to bring up incidents like paying 5600 for a sound truck for use in a colleagues campaign or any num ber of other like references voiced by Long Such things strike at the very heart of what senators prize the most As a result Long stands almos alone in the senate All have desert ed him even young Bennett Clark of Missouri once friendly Probably many would like to ge rid of him but they dont know how They recognize his shrewdness hi ability and his fearlessness Ant they know that theyve got to hav an ironclad case against him befor they dare proceed toward anything like expulsion Last 6 Members of Party Marooned on Arctic Ice Rescuec MOSCOW

shops but not all of these are in eluded in the walkout due to ne of satisfactory agreements in some cases Industrial circles appeared much less concerned today over the too and die job shop strike than a gen eral undercurrent of unrest in the ranks of labor in the heart of the motor industry Evidence of Unrest Evdence of this unrest was seen in some quarters in the scheduling of a meeting Sunday in Pontiac several locals of the United Auto mobile workers American Federa tion of Labor affiliate William Col lins chief organizer of the federa tion in the auto industry denied however that there was anything unusual in the meeting New developments also includec the direct demand to manufacturers by Pontiac locals asking a 30 hour five day week with a minimum wage of 60 cents for unskilled labor This overture was noteworthy in that it ignored the national automo bile labor board the subject of ap parently increasing disfavor in labor circles Fear General Outbreak The chief danger in the tool and die strike lies in the possibility thai its example may cause a genera outbreak of labor troubles so far kept in subjection through timely mediation that appears to be losing
