WASHINGTON Nov 7 election returns have settled several political questions with emphasis They have left several tentially of far greater significance untouched obvious thingis that the vast majority of the voters are willing to go along with Mr Roosevelt for another two years that the demo cratic party has been lifted to a high throne of prestige and power unoccupied by any previous political regime in America that old line republicanism has failed to its low est estate since the existing two party alignment came into being Have Written History In this sense and to this degree the election returns have written history But beneath the obvious runs a set of implications embody ing much deeper historical possibil ities The margin of democratic con trol is so great the power con ferred by the electorate is so sweep ing that the national destiny itself may depend on what the voters do with their victory That question the election returns do not answer Candidates of almost every con ceivable twist of opinion have been swept into office on the democratic ticket Their collective mental pro cesses range from the inner shrine of conservatism to the borders of sheer radicalism They have come to a new power under the wing of an administration whose policies have appeared to many to swing visibly from left to right from right to left Can It Stay One Can this party which has come so near to taking the place of both old parties in the conduct of the government remain one party un der the tightening strain of these years of constant change If it does remain one party can the dominance of one wing over the other be avoided and which will become the controlling element If it does not remain one party is the longforeseen realignment of Amer ican political groups now in pros pect These questions point directly Continued on Page S OF REPUBLICANS PUT INTO OFFICE Recapture Two Offices Taken by Democrats in 1932 Landslide A complete slate of republicans elected to the county offices of Cerro Gordo county in the general election Tuesday Although the county joined with the remainder of the state in the re election of Gov Clyde L Herring and others on the state ticket re

the kidnaper of 6 year old June Ro bles The department said that a fed eral complaint is being filed charg ing Robson with the sending of ex tortion letters through the United States mails Robson a 31 year old resident of Tucson Ariz was identified by the various handwriting experts who declared that the handwriting in the extortion letters which called for payment of was his Boy Delivers Note For several years he has been connected with a dance hall in Tuc son The Robles child was kidnaped by an unidentified man about 3 p ni April 25 while she was going home from school Later the same afternoon a small Mexican boy gave her father a written demand for the in five ten and twenty dollar bills The boy said he had been given 25 cents by a man he did not know to deliver it The initial ransom demand was roughly printedjin lead ingvthe and con tained specific directions for deliv ery of the money No Further News No further word was heard from the kidnapers until April 29 when a second letter was dispatched from Tucson to the girls father repeat ing the demand Robles then addressed through the newspapers a request to the kid napers that they submit proof his child was still living Robles ex pressed willingness to comply with all their demands Early in the morning of May 6 the third note similarly signed XYZ reached the uncle of the kidnaped child This note said the child

SLIGHT EDGE IN IOWA HOUSE First Results Give 35 Republicans Seats 34 Democrats Possibility that the republican party may capture the lower house of the state legislature despite the democratic landslide for state of fices was seen Wednesday as tabula tions in tne GlobeGazette office showed 35 republicans elected to the lower house and 34 democrats with 36 counties still to report their choice Democratic control of the upper house which after the last election remained with the republicans was almost certain when of the first 9 senatorial contests to be decided the democrats captured 4 to add to the 18 democratic holdover senators making 22 of the 26 needed for con trol They must win 4 more seats of the 13 remaining contests Relationship Noted Analysis of the voting tabulations in thfi counties Where the state rep resentative choice has been made reveals a rather clear relationship between the winner of the guberna torial contest and the winner of the assembly seat In cases where Tur ner won for example the legisa ture choice was likely to be a re publican but the reverse was not of CerroGordo county With this in mind the 36 counties in which no choice of legislative representative is indicated as vet present an interesting study In 16 of the 36 missing counties Herring was definitely victor or had a com manding lead 11 of them leaned toward Turner and 8 were too close to favor either Bound to Be Close If the trend here indicated carried through the lower house democratic total members would boosted to aneven 50 and the re publican list would be increased to 46 with 8 seats in doubt Fifty three members constitute a major ity of the house which means that the republicans would have to win 7 of the 8 doubtful counties Therein lies the republican hope for dominating legislation in the lower house of the next general as semfcly This appears at first blush to be an unlikely eventuality and yet in numerous counties as in Cerro Gordo there was a sweeping repub lican victory for local office even though Herring was a winner over his republican opponent STATE LEGISLATURE S Love republican Hanson re publican Audubon Thomas Rutherford Jr republican D
