NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLI CENTS A COPt ASSOCIATED PHIS8 UEASED WIKB 8BKV1CB MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY NOVEMBER 16 1934 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 31 Inflation Is Not Likely Estimates Made of Leadership for Congress By HERBERT PLUMMER WASHINGTON Nov 16 First estimates of the leadership of the next con gress disclose lit tle real alarm as to the possibility that mandatory inflation will overrun adminis tration policy The probabili ties of senate re sistance to any drastic currency inflation propos als from the house strong enough at least to prevent the overriding of a veto loom as blocking the inflationist road With thev question however ot what to do about the already indi cated American Legion demand for immediate payment of the bonus the situation appears much more difficult to congressional insiders They dont know exactly to what extent congressmenelect com mitted themselves on the point dur ing the campaign Those who will talk privately however are frank to say they foresee ample house strength to beat a veto They seem to think also the senate might go the same way Along Strategic Lines That has set going discussions of methods to meet the situation Among the suggestions made is that good strategy frequenly dictates joining a cause you cant beat and shaping it more to your liking or at least less to your disliking It might be recalled that Mr Roosevelt did just that to beat off a mandatory inflation drive in the last congress The Thomas amend ment which made him monetary policy dictator changed mandatory inflationinto authority about inflation in the budgetcould tie worked out is difficult to see There is always the fact that the same Legion convention which voted to press the bonus issue elected of ficers who have been cautious in what they have had to say on the subject publicly Legion Priorities The right to determine priorities in presentation to congress of a variety of Legion legislative propos als is retainedin that organizations executive hands There have been intimations that Legion authorities might place can cellation of interest on outstanding bonus loans ahead of full payment or that other of their various pro posals might be given precedence There is also the fact of the amaz ing popular indorsement of Mr Roosevelt himself written into the Nov 6 ballots to be reckoned with This might make Legion legisla tion managers hesitant of inviting a headon collision with the white house It might be remembered too a new congress is elected for two years The urgent necessity of shap ing their course in the light of their interpretation of the strength among their constituents of various organized projects such as the bonus may not be as strong on house members in 1935 as in when a presidential election is in the off ingThat might temper or defer the demand for action on the Legion bonus resolution FORECAST IOWA Showers Friflay night and Saturday warmer in cen tral and east Friday night cold

told the fairy tale which Alice made him write down Down Rabbit Hole He published it under the pseu donym Lewis Carroll and sent countless adults too the rabbit hole into a classic world of make believe where the mad hatter and the March hare are still trying to put the dormouse into a teapot And there are those who see more than nonsense in the works of Lewis Carroll for chess scholars have

CopyriBtif 11134 by Thr AsHoclaled IresB WASHINGTON Nov 16 survey of congressional sentiment shows the house overwhelmingly favors cash payment of the sol diers bonus and that the fate of the legislation rests almost entirely in the senate It also strongly suggests the possibility of a compromise The survey conducted by the Associated Press shows 159 repre sentatives in favor of the bonus and 47 against Of the remaining members all noncommittal or un available 98 voted for the bonus last session 60 opposed it and 48 did not vote Senate Divides Evenly The senate lineup divides evenly with 24 for the bonus and 24 against The balance of power rests with the remainder all either non committal or unreachable There was no clear cut vote in the senate last session on which to base a further tally Speculation on how the doubtful senators will vote is inconclusive Many of them are pledged to sup port the administration and might be expected to follow President Roosevelt Some have voted for cash payment in the past While the check in the house in dicates a division similar to the overwhelming vote of 295 to 125 for the bonus in the last session two conflicting factors may cause changes Gains New Strength Since then President Roosevelts administration has gathered new strength at the polls despite his strong hint of a bonus veto Coun tering this the American Legion has come out for cash payment for the first time Some observers believe that fac tors which may settle the issue in congress are Whether the president sets his face against all bonus pro posals or offers to compromise and the force of the drive conducted by the Legion and other service or ganizations Several suggestions along the compromise line were made by members of congress in the sur vey Interest Cancellation The most frequently proposed was cancellation of interest on the ad justed service certificates with many who oppose cash payment of the full face value offering to sup port such a move The certificates mature in 11 years and it has been estimated more than would be needed to pay in full now Another suggestion made a num ber of times usually by those op posing immediate cash payment in full was for cashing the certifi cates of those veterans in need or on relief rolls GLORIA DECISION TO BE APPEALED Girls Mother to Act right Away After Unexplained Court Ruling NEW YORK Nov 16
