Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - September 15, 1936, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY SEPTEMBER THIS PAPER CONSISTS OP TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 293 Hamilton Disappoints Big Crowd Fails to Get Fireworks at His Speech By CHARLES f STEWART ASHINGTON CPA whatever a crowd may be worth Republican Manager John D M Hamilton cer tainly had a good one as guest speaker at a re c e n t National Press club lunch eon in Washing ton I have seen even presidential functions at the club which were less well attend ed than this af fair with the Kansan as its chief attraction Of course however the turnout was not exclusively republican by any means Not to mention the fact that newspapermen are present on such occasions regardless of their various political affiliations if any new deal officials associate mem bers of the club were conspicu ously numerous in the throng Scarcely necessary to say they didnt come as Landonites but out of curiosity or perhaps to listen to oratory which there might be pos sibilities for them subsequently to rebut Standing Koora Only The clubs big auditorium was jammed to suffocation anyway So was its gallery which ordinarily has only a thin sprinkling of late arrivals The S R O sign was out indeed in the lobbies and cor ridors In fact folk who didnt buy their tickets early didnt get close enough to the speakers table to hear a word that was said They did not miss much It was only an average speech No news Hamilton got a satisfactory hand but that was somewhat a matter of politeness the press club is courteous to Hamilton to Norman Thomas to William Lemke to Gerald L K Smith to Dr Townsend to Earl Browder to any one of the celebrities it has entertained of late Wasnt Sensational Hamilton has a nice personality The club undoubtedly liked him Yet he did not tear things quite 2i wide open as had been antici pated from advance descriptions of the vehemence of his elocution When he had finished an invita tion was extended to auditors to ask questions Hardly any were t asked The audience seemed to feel that it had heard about all that the speaker had to say The thing began with promise of being a tremendous success It oczed out rather flatly I hate to say this of a club guests entertainment but it is un es capable It goes without contradiction that John Hamilton is a better re publican chairman than was his predecessor Henry P the worst ever as a publicity get ter Better Executive But it is questionable that Fletcher was not a better commit tee executive than Hamilton The Kansan has been panned unmercifully by his own outfit for administrative mismanagement It has been answered that as soon as he could get back on the job at headquarters all would be well But there continues to be G O P lamentation at republican cam paign mismanagement The truth is republican man agement ripped ravelled and ran down at the heel under Hooverism and postHooverism jurisdiction now must be reconstructed by an entire ly new regime It is disorganized Contrariwise democratic organ isation under Manager Jim Farley is in good shape MAINE RETURNS TO G 0 FOLD Director Bell Pleads for Reductions in Requests WASHINGTON gov ernment financial quarters disclosed Tuesday that budget estimates for the next fiscal year probably will call for national defense expendi tures topping the billion dollar mark This report circulated as govern ment departments engaged in a last minute rush to file estimates for the 1938 fiscal year with Daniel W Bell acting director of the budget bureau Deadline for filing estimates for the 12 months beginning next July 1 was set Tuesday with hearings opening Sept 21 In a call for estimates to the heads of government departments and agencies Bell urged that every possible effort be made to bring demands for 1938 below appropria tions for the current fiscal period Referring to increased activities in some agencies resulting from new legislation Bell continued Need More Money It is realized that some activities will need increased appropriations in order to comply with the re quirementsof the law but it is hoped that reductions will be made in other expenditures which will than offset the necessary in creases so that in the aggregate your estimates will show a substan tial reduction below the 1937 ap Officials said however that th national defense estimate would rise above the outlay pro jected in the current year because more money will be necessary to carry on a program of expansion already under way The enlarged national defense program contemplates additional funds in 1938 it was said becausa costs for some features already in augurated will grow heavier The amount of a possible increase was not estimated but officials asserted requests for allotments probably would go above Drought Another Factor Another major factor in next years budget will be the drought which will be felt in several differ ent ways Besides the possibility for requests of a longrange drought program the price of food for

FrenchCanadian Like Elzire too he had a heart that was stout and muscles that were iron Money Money is for people who do not have stout hearts and willing mus cles Eleven years ago A boy and a gir

were indicted by the graft grand jury on charges of conspiracy topermit the Df the liquor laws and for accepting oribes In the case of Kerr the commis sion ruled that the evidence was sufficient to warrant severe penal ization so it denied his request for sack pay during the time of his dis charge In Dieberts case the ruling stated the commission found ample cause for the removal Lukes dis clarge was upheld on grounds itt no way related to the graft investi gation It was found that in 1921 had resigned from the Sioux City force to accept a position with the Norfolk police force and
