Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - September 19, 1936, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKB ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION FIVE COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY SEPTEMBER THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONK NO 297 Baltimore Sun Decides Democratic Paper Not to Support Roosevelt By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON Read ers of the Balti more Sun may have been sur prised by the openness of the p a p e r s recent admin istration that it is unable to advocate the re election of President Roose However n o one who has kept in touch with the Suns editor ial attitude can have doubted that it has been out of sympathy with the new deals general policy a policy it indorses in many of its details for a long time Being unsympathetic and saying so are two different things nevertheless For example Senator Carter Glass Lynchburg Daily News morning and Daily Advance afternoon obviously are new dealerishly unsympathetic but they dont announce that they are The distinction is substantially the same as the distinction be tween the respective positions of Senator Glass and exSenator James A Reed of Missouri Glass and Read Virtually every time a new deal issue arises Glass is against it Still he is a democrat and he ac cepts President Roosevelt who es sentially new deal as a fel lowdemocrat his party leader Reeds version is that he is a demo crat but that the new deal isnt hence he repudiates the president as his leader The Baltimore Sun today is as as exSenator Reed It arrived at its decision too even more impressively than he did The exsenator did bis de ciding in a hurry The Sun edi torially thought the matter over until well on into the campaign giving an appearance of plenty of serious consideration Incidentally the Sun showed a first class quality of courage Poll lor Roosevelt At the very moment of its anti Roosevelt declaration it was con ducting a Maryland straw poll as between the two presidential can didates and the poll at the junc ture was going somewhat pro Roosevelt Perhaps as a newspaperman 1 overestimate the Baltimore Suns influence It is a curious thing that most newspapers which newspapermen chiefly reverence usually are not particularly popular among read ers Illustratively the old New York Sun journalisms Bible never was a circulation buscer Besides Im not sure of the Suns weight outside the sphere of its immediate circulation It counts throughout Maryland Vir ginia Delaware New Jersey and up into New York but 1 am not so sure that the west ever heard of it I know of it in the District of Columbia but the district is vote less Hull a Conservative The Baltimore Sun conservative in its way referred to Secretary State Hull as the one surviving con servative in the present adminis tration What is a republican and what is a radical Secretary Hull previously classed as a radical in Hoover days rates as a conservative now The Baltimore Sun terms him the stepchild of the administra Its aptly put OFFICERS SOLVE BOND BURGLARY Green and Two Men Held in Iowa Butter Thefts Are Named DES MOINES Glen Schmidt Iowa

from the three point tax law are approximately a year and that he has repeatedly stated during the campaign that be earmarked for old age pensions assistance thus eliminating the head tax as a source of pension revenue The remaining in the three point tax revenues after all those eligible for old age assistance have received payments should be applied to homestead he said Throughout the spring
