EDITION VOL XLII FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY JUNE 20 1936 PAPER CONSISTS OP TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONK NO 218 Speculation About 1940 Will Roosevelt Be First to Receive Third Term SENATE APPROVES NEW TAX BILL By CHARLES TSTEWART WITT ASHINGTON 1 1 CPA It is early to indulge m Political SPCC W ulation concern in 1940 Yet politicians are doing it right at the beginning of the current campaign In fact there is more looking ahead than 1 im agine ever char acterized a past presidential con test It already has been remarked that Governor Landon wanted to be nominated this year even if republican chances do look a trifle dubious as to next November because as his 1933 standard bearer he will be m a position to claim renomination four years hence when perhaps the G O P prospect will seem brighter Also it has been suggested that Senator Vandenberg reasoning dif ferently from Landon did not great ly care to be nominated at Cleve land because he believes that 1940 may be a more promising republic an year and did not desire to smear his record with a defeat in the meantime But democrats too are peering into the quadrennial future So is the third party element Democrats Confident As to the democrats They feel sure that they will win the coming election They are not bluffing when they say so They may be mistaken but its their hon est opinion However what they are wonder whom can we win four years from now With whom indeed Tugwell Hopkins Ickes or WallaceTwo republicans None appears to ring the presi dential President dictator which is oration Yet Iowa Democrat Delegates Head for Convention themselves adniitit Republicans Roosevelt as a something of an SOuieLUlUg Ui CTWQO he does seem to have one weakness of a lack of a dicta torial heir to succeed him Third Term idea What democratic leadership docs say or hint at is that there is noth ing binding about the antithird term tradition In other words Cant President Roosevelt be made the countrys first third termer His friends realize that this sug 1T15 oestion if advanced abruptly will comeas a shock to the American el ectorate Consequently they are putting it forward very cautiously and very early in order to give it time to sink in bvdeorees Their publicity is just barely intimating that after all a third lease on the white house is not unconstitutional If the idea takes undoubtedly it will be cultivated Anyway a third Rooseveltian term certainly is in the back of the new deal head even with the fight for a second one merely in its m cipiency A Labor Party The other 1940 guessers are the labor group dominated by President lohn L Lewis of the United Mine folk who are trying to effect labors organization on indus trial lines as distinguished from the A F of Ls craft form ot uniomza If Lewis plan succeeds within four years as it will be then if ev er it assuredly will have arrived at the creation of a labor party in 1940 or sooner Lewis craftily refrains from op posing President Roosevelt at pres His judgment is good manifestly A third party of his choosing would attract votes this year from the comparatively liberal Roosevelt and thus might elect the compara tively conservative Landon with no chance for a third ticket to win citbcr But four years hence the indus trial laborities think they may be strong enough to win independently Guessing About II What the situation will be like in 1940 is problematic President Roosevelt if reelected this vear will be on hand for a re nomination Can he get it upset tin all precedent Meanwhile what wiff his second term record need to have been Liberal Relatively conservative Or intermediate Can he if still in office get a third nomination anyhow The democrats think maybe he can The republicans impossibility A possible third partys outlook IF a matter of pure guesswork Kills District Commander tES MOINES sixth Iowa district of the American Le ion elected C W Ellis of

political parties of that day temporized with the issue of human slavery and brought about the Civil war and incidentally the formation of a new party headed by Abraham Lincoln dedicated to the preservation of the union and elim ination of human slavery Today we arc again at the cross roads and the issue again is slavery slavery Today we are in the midst of another wai against a manmade depression I1 has reduced our nation to the low est economic state in its history leaving a trail of suffering starva tion and want in a land of plenty Two major parties have had ample opportunity to seriously attempt to remedy the economic ills of our na tion They have been found wanting There is only one solution Thai is through the formation of a new party which I am launching today to be known
