COPY ASSOUIAIED PRESS IJCASED WIRE SEKV1OB MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY DECEMBER 21 1934 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 61 Would Vote in October Sumners Picks Out Fault in Norris Amendment By HERBERT PLtTMMER ASHINGTON Dec 21 UP When Senator Norris of Ne braska saw his lame duck amendment b e come a part of the constitution he dismissed the subject promptly and turned to other things He had suc ceeded in having congress meet within 41 days after a general the first time in his tory A p p a r e ntly however Senator Norris job is not yet completed At least thats what one of the foremost constitutional lawyers in congress thinks He is Representative Sumners of chairman of the house judi ciary committee And Sumnerg has prepared a bill for introduction in the coming congress to prove it Elections in October Its all very complicated ners proof For example his bill reads like this A bill to change the time of the appointment of presidential elect orsThat section 131 of the re vised statutes II S C title 3 sec 1 is amended to read as follows Sec 131 The electors of president and vice president shall be appoint ed in each state on the Tuesday after the first Monday in October in every fourth year succeeding every election etc et al All of which merely means that Sumners is attempting to change the date of general elections from November to October Has Elaborate Chart He has worked out an elaborate sort of movable calendar with the next presWen almost to the over a period of 36 years the time that presidential electors will be appointed to the number of days between their ap pointment and meeting to the num ber of days between their meeting and the dispatching of a messenger to congress to the number of days from the time the messenger ar rives in Washington and to the hour that congresscanvasses the election returns and formally notifies the country who is the next president and vice president Sees Leeway1 Need Sumners wants to advance the general election date one month be cause he is convinced there is not sufficient time under the lame duck amendment to take care of such things as canvassing returns and settling election contests before congress is convened Under the existing law only 41 days is permitted Before the lame duck amendment an average of 60 days intervened If Sumners has his way he will extend the period to around 71 days Were liable to get into all sorts of trouble within the next 36 years or so he says unless we make provision for more leeway now be tween the time presidential electors are appointed and the time they ac tually meet He believes it probably will be 1940 before the change can he made but hopes to make it sooner if pos sible Plan Transient Center DES MOINES Dec Transient Relief
