IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLII 11VS CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY JULY 2 1936 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OK TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 228 Theyre Not Agreed Townsend Doubtful About Lemke as Candidate By CHARLES T STEWART ASHINGTON as I predicted its nice to have made a fulfilled the groups Con gressman Will iam Lemke was counting on to combine in sup port of his Union party presiden tial candidacy are failingto get together Dr Francis E Townsend al ready expresses doubts of his old age pensioners liking for the Lemke movement At first the doctor seemed rather friendly toward it Now however he says that the old age pensioners wont make up their minds before their meetingin Cleveland July 15 19 He suggests that they may pre fer to name their own candidate ig noring Lemke The trouble with these third party folk is that they dont agree among themselves Instead of forming a third party when it comes to a showdown their idea is to form sev eral different and conflicting inde pendent parties thus offsetting one another Not Too Enthusiastic Perhaps as Dr Townsend fore casts the old age pensioners will pick their own candidate Perhaps not Either way its clear from the doctors comment that theyre not wildly enthusiastic for Lemke Lemke makes his appeal especial ly to agriculture by a method in volving monetary inflation On that basis one might suppose he could command the backing for example of Senator Elmer Thomas Thomas is from Oklahoma as agricultural a state as Lemkes North Dakota He also is an inflationist Nevertheless no Thomasonian cheers are heard for Lemke WhyWhy Thomas knows that China manschaiice It pays nimUetierto stay at least nominally democratic Labor shows no signs of getting on board the Lemke hearse It sizzles with third party sentiment but not for Lemkes kind of a third party The Rev Gerald L K Smith who has assumed that he is the late Sen ator Huey P Longs successor ap pears mildly Lemkeish but the ma chine Huey Long organized mani fests a disposition to toss the Rev Gerald L K overboard as its leader not caring to tie itself up with a losing venture Neither the Wisconsin Progres sives nor the Minnesota Farmer Laborites gravitate Lcmkeward Father Charles E Coughlin and Senator Lynn J Frazier are the only outstanding Lemkeites I know of And I wonder if Father Coughlin can deliver his following at the polls As for Senator Frazier he was coauthor with Representative Lemke of the FrazierLemke bill upon which the bill having been lost in the last congress Lemke is basing his campaign In such cir cumstances he hardly can be other wise than proLemke Parentheti cally its noteworthy that Fraziers North Dakota colleague Senator Gerald P Nye is noncomrnital Lemkes Hope Unlikely Congressman Lemke surmises that with his union party in the field no candidate will win an elec toral majorityoverall and conse quently that the presidential decis ion will be thrown into the house of representatives Its the height of an improbability The same prediction was made in 1924 when tie late Senator Robert M La Follette a far stronger can didate then than Congressman Lemke is at present was a third party aspirant and the senator car ried only his own state of Wiscon sin A similar prediction was made when Theodore Roosevelt ran as a Bull Mooser and he couldnt do it Congressman Lemke flatters him self The electorate is realigning cer tainly It looks to me likelier to realign by a reshuffling of the old parties than by the injection of a new on into the situation Reshuffling Starts The reshuffling already is well in progress However a third party might break into the situation with a strong enough leader Congressman Lemke isnt strong enough to make even a dent Four years hence such a leader may have take over one of the old parties or to create a new one But this campaign will be under the oldline names if not quite of the oldline character The oldline names and the newline character will be commingled Democrats will vote for republicans believing them to be democrats and vice versa Personalities will figure largely President Roosevelt has a dandy Governor Landons is as different from it as the poles are apart but it seems to be all the right kind is being manufactured for him anyway Lemke will have to go some to create one MAN TRAPPED IN MINE RESCUED Pope Pius Orders World Censorship of Movies FARLEY GOES TO WHITE HOUSE TO VISIT HIS CHIEF Future Status With New Deal in Balance at Campaign Talk WASHINGTON Cli National Chairman James A Farley and his aides joined President Roosevelt in the white house Thursday to dis cuss the presidential campaign That was virtually Farleys only word to newsmen as he walked into the executive offices accompanied by W Forbes Morgan treasurer of the democratic national committee L W Robert secretary and Charles Michelson publicity direc tor Uppermost in the minds of most was whether the conference around Mr Roosevelts desk would deter mine Farleys future status in the new deal administration Many ex pected him to step out of the cabi net as permanently or concentrate on the campaign We are coming in to discuss the campaign was all Farley would say I dont know whether the president will get around to other subjects Assaults on platform In preparation for the big ora torical engagements ahead leaders in the democratic and republican camps devoted themsejyes to an as sault on each others party plat forms Describing the recent democratic convention as marked by mumbo jumbo Republican Chairman John D M Hamilton told the Ohio re publican convention Wednesday night that the platform adopted at Philadelphia was intended chiefly to hypnotize the voters Its aim he said was to return a particular political individual and his clique to power while the re publican platform was construc tive Apart from its realistic dealing with specific problems Hamilton said there is a comprehension a spirit and a confidence in the plat form of the republican party for which one will look in vain in Mr Roosevelts personal document On the other hand Secretary of Agriculture Wallace in a letter to an Iowa farmer hammered the re publican farm plank as contradic tory It made he said conflicting commitments to eastern capital and western agriculture Campaign of Discussion Another administration leader

but it will warm up again by Saturday Belle Plaine GJrl Is Instantly Killed Automobile ADDRESSES LETTER TO IL S Calls on Catholic Heads Over World to Follow Their Example VATICON CITY Pius Thursday ordered a world censor ship on movies under the direction of his bishops The order was issued in an ency clical letter addressed directly to the bishops and archbishops of the Roman Cath olic church in the United States The church head also ordered the bishops throughout the world to obtain from the faith ful annually re newable promises to abstain from witnessing bad films It was the first time in recent years the Pope has published an encyclical a d dressed directly Pope Pius XI to AmcrjCan bi m Tipover BELLE PLAINS Kimm 17 Belle Plaine was instant ly killed Wednesday night when the automobile in which she was riding rolled over several times after the driver Mary Hyte also of Belle Plaine lost control as she attempted to turn out for a herd of hogs be ing driven on the highway two and onehalf miles north of here The Kimm girl presumably was crushed under the car Another passenger in he car Beverly Petcrman suffered a broken leg The Hytc girl sus tained a broken arm and painful j bruises I shoos The encyclical was entitled Vigi lant Cura It was addressed to the lAmerican bishops because they took the lead in movie censorship It in vited the bishops of the whole world to follow their example Would Inform Laymen His Holiness ordered the estab lishment of motion picture review offices under the supervision of the bishops and said these officers would inform laymen what pictures they may or may not see The Pope ordered that a perma nent national reviewing office be set up in each country and suggested it be entrusted to the headquarters of the Catholic action organization and dependent on the bishops He urged the exchange of infor mation between the offices in all countries to achieve a unit outlet in the judgments and communica tions appearing in the Catholic press of the world He said he realized standards var ied from one country to another and this would have to be taken in to consideration Not in Accordance The pontiff urged that bishops appeal to the Catholics connected with motion picture production say ing the influence of these Catholics has not always been in accordance with their faith and ideals The Pope declared People who in time of repose give themselves diversions which violate decency honor or morality and to recrea tions which especially to Ihe youn constitute occasions of sin are in grave danger of losing their great ness and even national power The papal letter stating emphat ically the tremendous effect of films for good and evil was addressed in particular to American bishops The pope directed bishops to ob tain annual promises from Catholic laymen to abstain from witnessing bad films Fathers and Mothers In particular fathers and moth ers of families conscious of their responsibility should cooperate the pope said We thank the bishops and faith ful of the United States and we ex press our satisfaction over the good results achieved in this field by the Legion of Decency and urge bish ops and faithful throughout the whole world to profit by their ex amples the holy father declared We urge the necessity for a com mittee of censorship under the con trol of fathers and mothers of fam ilies in order that a medium fraught with such power may be a source not of debasement but rather of vir tue and national greatness in the contribution which it may make to ward increasing the welfare social and moral of the world Code Not Effective Cinema producers of America themselves became concerned over evil movies in 1930 and issued a code accordingto which they pro mised to abstain from production of films calculated to demoralize or bring Discredit to natural or human law the papal letter said However in point of fact they arrived themselves scarcely able to put if into effect For this reason

movies would be solved if produc tion of only good films could be as sured However since it is difficult to organize such an industry he added additional influence must be brought to bear on the whole
