Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - May 29, 1936, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLII FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRB SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY MAY THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 200 Huddleston Has Battle New Dealers Out to Get Solon From Alabama CHARLES F STEWART A S H IN G T ON CPA Anti new deal demo cratic lawmak ers are consid erably perturbed by the difficul ties Representa tive George Hud dleston is experi encing in his campaign for re nomination in the Birmingham con gressional d i s trict of A1 a bama Representative Huddleston is in his eleventh term on capitol hill Once nominated on the democrat ic ticket in that section a candi date ordinarily is as good as elected but occasionally there is competi tion for tie nomination Represen tative Huddieston never has had much however eleven times in succession he has won with scarcely a contest Now he has a fight on his hands A Conspicuous Example His too is a conspicuous exam ple Not only is he a veteran con gressman from a district where it was assumed that he was virtually unassailable he is one of the ablest men in the national legislature The little giant from Alabama was the fashion in which his associates re ferred to him And untii the new deals advent he always was considered an ad vanced liberal Organized labor swore by Birmingham is a workingmans town A genuine liberal is what he re ally is but he is an exceptionally capable economist too and many new deal policies struck his un economic as false liberality in fact Opposed New Deal He opposed them in debate and voted against them He fought bit terly such measures as the anti holding company bill What he said for he is a vitriolic speaker counted more than his lone ballot He is a terrific states rightser For instance although his district is dry he voted against the eighteenth amendment Not that he isnt a dry himself He is but only a statewide dry Considering the section he comes from it was going some to vote against that amendment The Roosevelt tendency toward central ization worries him And devalua tion of the dollar added to his dis tress He has been especially irritating to the new dealers because of his previous liberal that he isnt a true liberal still but he is antinew deal A Losing Fight Being the outstanding democratic antinew dealer in the house of rep resentatives the new dealers nat urally were most desirious to get him in the recent Alabama primar ies They succeeded to a certain ex tent They did not beat him outright He had a plurality of the primary votes but not a majorityoverall which is necessary to nominate Consequently there must be a run off early in June between Huddles ton andhis leading opponent who is Luther Patrick a Birmingham new dealer There were several other new deal candidates eliminated be cause their votes were too small to signify Upset by Reflection But if the new dealers unite on Patrick they will win about 3 to 1 Miscellaneous antinew dealers are upset by the reflection If so solid a candidate as Repre sentative Huddleston is defeated by reason of his antinew deal attitude what chance will they stand They do not care 20 much for Huddlestons prospects It is with their own thermometer that they gauge his outlook NEW TAX ACT READY FOR SENATE INCOME SURTAX INCREASE VOTED COMMITTEE REPORTDULUTH TRANSIENT SLAIN Man Found Dead at Mankato Claimed Killed With Ax or Hatchet MANKATO G A Dahl Blue Earth county coroner announced Friday Arthur Phillips 50 Duluth transient found dead Thursday with his skull crushed had been slain The death wound was inflicted by an ax or a hatchet Dr Dahl said and the body apparently thrown on

Rapids Iowa and in this city Three transients arrested in Le Seuer were brought Here for ques tioning Thursday right Bill Is Not Expected to Reach Floor Before Next Week WASHINGTON a last minute change that would in crease individual income surtaxes except in the lowest surtax bracket the senate finance committee Fri day approved its compromise tax bill ActingChairman King said the measure would be brought to the senate floor as soon as pos No accurate estimates of the yield were available But on the basis of the latest treasury com putations which are subject to re vision the bill would produce around of permanent amount requested by President Roosevelt But it would bring in only an es timated of temporary funds as against j sought by Mr Roosevelt The boost in income surtaxes was estimated to produce upwards of On Graduated Basis Another change was made in a lengthy closed committee session It would place the normal corpor ate income levy on a graduated in steady of a flat basis The committee originally contem plated a flat 18 per cent on total corporation income Friday it voted to make the rates per cent on income up to 16 per cent on the next 17 per cent on the next and 18 per cent on all over Accompanying that alteration was an agreement to remove a tax exemption which would have been granted corporations with an income not exceeding 000 King said the result so far as revenue was concerned would be unchanged Reject Higher Levies The committee rejected by a 13 to 5 vote a final attempt by admin istration forces to swing the com mittee over to higher graduated levies on undistributed corporate earnings Senator Black proposed a system for retaining the present 12 to 15 per cent corpor ate levy with a surtax graduating up to 30 per cent on undistributed income The committee agreed however to stand by its flat 7 per cent levy on undistributed earnings The bill as approved also would subject corporate dividends to the 4 per cent normal income tax King said he believed the bill would bring in more than of permanent and tempo rary funds With a broad smile he told re porters The bill is ordered reported out Meet Once More said the committee would meet once more tc approve a final draft embracing the final altera tions then make its formal report on the measure It was not expected to reach the floor before next week however On the final vote of approval the acting chairman said there was no roll call He said the vote was al most unanimous although several senators said they were voting to report the bill to the floor merely to obtain action and without being committed to support it Individual income surtaxes would be boosted under todays decision by 1 per cent in each bracket be tween and The low est to would not be subjected to the 1 per cent increase All taxpayers paying surtaxes on or more would pay more tax although they would not have the 1 per cent increase Small Loans Exempt The section of present law pro viding high graduated rates on per sonal holding company would be retained but the 20 to 60 per cent levies all would be rdduced by Ti per cent That was done committee members said because the corpo rations would have to pay the 7 per cent levy on undistributed prof it Small loan companies which make loans of less than would be exempt from personal holding company taxes A cushion would be provided for corporations with contracts not to pay dividends until they have paid off debts by making the 7 per cent undistributed profits tax inapplicable to them Holiday Motorists of State Receive Warning The
