LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY APRIL 16 1935 PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 159 Plans Part in Affairs Garner Calls Self Spare Tire of the By HERBERT PLUMJMUSK ASHINGTON April 16 How far the self described spare tire of the gov ernment intends to go in his latest bid for a greater share in the busi ness of legislation is a question only Cactus Jack Garner himself can answer Garner so char acterized the vice presidency when he took it over at the beginning of the present ad ministration are few observers in Washington however after watching the activity of the ruddy facedTexan for the last two years who will agree that Garner is a spare Certainly his an nouncement to the senate that in the future he expects to exercise some discretion in the matter of se lecting conferees when the senate authorizes him to make the ap pointments belies such a title He is the first vice president to discover that the rules of the sen ate empower him to do more than the duty imposed upon his office by the over ses sions of the senate and vote in cases of a tie Knows Parliamentary Law Insiders credit the conference deadlock on the workrelief bill for Garners move Four out of the five senate conferees on this measure were opposed to the bill It was to prevent a possible recurrence of this sort of thing they say which prompted Garner to announce the course he intended to pursue in the future It strikes deeper than that how ever For more than 30 years Garner has been a student of the rules of both house and senate In that time he has become a parliamentarian of recognized authority and a keen analyst of inter and intra party po litical situations The result was that he discovered in the senate leadership authority for active participation in legisla tionwhich no preceding vice presi dent ever sought to exercise Was Leader as Speaker Cactus Jack went to the vice presidency from the speakership where he had in one session of con gress opportunity to put all his par liamentary and political experience into play As speaker Garner wield ed more power than any man to hold that position since Uncle Joe Cannon prior to his fall in 1909 As speaker he was the actual if not the titular democratic leader Then came his shift to the other side of the capitol where he found himself merely a parliamentarian HOUSE PASSES CHAIN STORE TAX Two

Des EARLY SHOPPING AYS UNTIL URGE MITCHELL FOR GOVERNOR Iowa House Speaker Admit Legislative Farm Bloc Approached Him By GEORGE MILLS Iowa Dally Press DES MOINES April Mitchell of Fort Dodge speaker of the Iowa house of representatives admitted today that he has been ap proached by members of the demo cratic farm bioc in the house to be its candidate for governor in the 1936 primaries Mitchell said he was making no comment at the present time con cerning his candidacy C L McKin non New London A H Bonnstet ter West Bend and other members of the socalled democratic farm bloc likewise would not comment as to the report except to say that there might be something to The speaker who was democrat ic floor leader in the fortyfifth gen eral assembly and who was an im portant factor in the passage of the threepoint tax program and emer gency legislation in that session was selected by the farm group it is understood because new blood is needed in the leadership of the democratic partyif the latter group hopes to get anywhere in the state political fight in Third Possible Candidate Mitchell thus becomes the third possible candidate to be discussed in democratic circles as timber for the governorship race next year Gov Clyde L Herring has been talked of widely as an aspirant to a third term at the head of the state government He also has been mentioned as a possible candidate for United States senator and also for vice president Nels G Kraschel lieutenant gov ernor is another prominently men tioned both as a candidate aspiring to the senatorial toga of Senator L J Dickinson and also for gov ernor At the present writing how ever Mitchells name is the only one to have been definitely men tioned Support for Mitchell is said to be based on the belief among some members of the party that the i present parly leadership cannot survive the 3936 test because of the unfavorable publicity attendant to the liquor control commission in vestigation and the sale of 000 in sinking
