CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWAJSATUBDAY JULY NO 230 Where Will They Go Ultraconservatives Left Without Any Candidate By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON CPA Ultra conservative folk find themselves with practically no place tc go as the presidential campaign opens up No party of fers them what would have been considered a standpat p r o gram as recent ly as four years ago The ex tremely radical group like the communists and the slightly mild er socialists of course are ana thema to them The Lemkeites dont suit them much hetter The democrats are much too far to the leftward for them and even the republicans show signs of lib erality that shock all Bourbons and all old guardsmen Now I am not sure that the conservative leaders leftward trend is genuinely as pronounced as their talk implies Fingers Crossed Gov Alfred M Landon for ex ample may have his fingers crossed when he suggests tinkering with the United States constitution And I have my doubts that President Poosevelt a heriditary aristocrat is as truly liberal as his acceptance speech indicated Nevertheless if they mean what they say neither one is as conser vative as such a 100 per cent right ist as Al Smith of Lammot not La ment duPont should desire A radical voter has got some lati tude for voice If Landon is too conservative for him he can drift leeward to Roose velt If Roosevelt is still to con servative he can go on to Lemke Thomas or Browder If Lemke isnt advanced enough he can go on to Norman Thomas or Earle Browder But a conservative Landon is the most conservative candidate in the field and he is not very conservative So for whom can the oldtime conservative vote The oldtime liberal party is radical The old time radicals are as radical as ever they communists anarchists whatever you please No party remains for the con servatives at all as I see it I asked a Canadian correspon dent What was bis opinion of the two conventions Lower Boiling Point he said the democrats boiling point is lower than the re They begin to scream and yell sooner than the republicans do But the sooner the pot boils over the sooner the ebullition The republican convention then ended with a crescendo The democrats wound up with an anticlimax That is to say it would have done so except for President Roosevelts masterful speech at its conclusion That speech took much of the curse from what would otherwise have been a flat fizzle SEEK TRUE SAYS F R Intense Heat Spreads New Damage to Crops I JkMHI M VIJfcBI mf TTtfWeather FORECAST IOWA Generally fair Saturday right and Sunday Warmer in

President Roosevelt called on the nation Sat urday to renew that founding fathers battle for true Mr Roosevelts Fourth of July address rang with the praises of Jefferson as a great gentleman and a great commoner who was not satisfied with things as they were but concentrated on things as they ought to Passages in the address were reminiscent of the presidents re cent acceptance speech in which he argued that while the Revolutionary heroes overthrew political autocracy the modern task was to win freedom from the economic royalists of big business Praise for Jefferson After praising Jefferson as a man who used an extraordinary diversity of knowledge to interpret and adapt laws habits and institutions in order to better the lot of man Mr Roosevelt said Democracy needs now as it found then men developed to the limit of their capacity through edu cation for ultimate responsibility Emergencies and decisions in our individual and community and na tional lives are the stuff out of which national character is made Preparation of the mind and spirit of our people for such emergencies and decisions is the best available insurance for the security and de velopment of our democratic insti tutions Never to Be Repeated Was the spirit of such men ai Jefferson the spirit of a golden age now and never to be repeated in our history Was the feeling of funda mental freedom which lighted the fire of their ability a miracle we shall never see again That is not my belief It is not beyond our power to relight that sacred fire There are no limitations upon the nations capacity to ob tain and maintain true freedom ex cept the strength of our nations de rire and From a nearby country club where he spent the night Mr Roose velt had motored up a winding mountain road to the famous brick mansion Monticello which Jeffer son spent almost his entire lifetime building and expanding Expression of Personality More than any other historic home in America Monticello ap peals to me as an expression of the personality of its Mr Roosevelt said In the design not alone of the whole but of every room and every part thereof in the very furnishings which Jefferson devised on his own drawing board and made in his own shop there speaks ready capacity for detail and above all creative It was the president asserted that Thomas Jefferson should live on this mountain top of Monticello On a
