Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 28, 1937, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLIII FIVE CENTS A COPX ASSOCIATED fRESS AND UNITED PRESS FULL LEASED MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY JUNE THIS PAPSa CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 225 Lining Up for 1940 Will Conservatives Unite Behind Senator Byrdr1 ERMANS WANT OL By CHARLES P STEWART A S H IN GTON CPA There is a good bit of talk in Wash ington of Sen ator Harry F Byrd of Virginia as a conserva tive democratic candidate for p r e s i dent in 1940 It is tenta tive talk not to say premature W h o knows what element will control the democratic par ty in 1940 The nominat ing primaries next spring will begin to tell If a pre ponderance of congress p r e s ent antinew deal democrats are renominated Cor senatorial and representatorial seats the infer ence will be that the party has swung away from Rooseveltianism If on the opposite hand the nom inations go to new men the sug gestion will be that the new deal still is in the saddle Different Matter The ensuing election is a dif ferent matter I am soeaking only of the primaries indications as to party control Suppose for the sake of argu ment that the antinew deal dem ocrats make an overwhelming cleanup Then the conclusion will be that Rooseveltianism has been repudiated and that some such presidential candidate as Senator Byrd is indicated Suppose however that the an tiRooseveltans are wiped off the map Then it will look as if Presi dent Roosevelt should be chosen to succeed himself Or if not Presi dent Roosevelt someone with his indorsement For example Secre tary of Agriculture Henry A Wal lace who often is spoken of as his pick although Wallace origi nally was a Or Gov George H Earle of Pennsylvania or Gov Frank Murphy of Mich new dealers 2 Tickets Possible But suppose the split is doubt ful Then there might arise such a situation as nomination of a 1940 regular democratic nom as Roosevelt Earle Murphy or you And the nomination also of a bolting democratic ticket headed maybe by Senator Byrd Such a complication arose s generation ago when William J Bryan was the Tegular demo crats selection but when Palmer and Buckner ran too as gold democrats and both were licked by William McKinley the repub lican contender But this would he a much worse mixup than that one was Suppose and suppose and sup pose for President Suppose the conservative demo crats put up say Senator Byrd for president Would he catch the conservative republicans also What would he be A democrat or republican And the other side Roosevelt A democrat or a republican Or Earle or Murphy Which Or suppose a case like this The conservatives democrats and republicans alike combine on 3 presidential candidate like Byrd It is logical The liberals nr radicals as you please unite let us say on John L Lewis It is consistent enough Always a Democrat Byrd always was a democrat but now he has affiliations with republicans Lewis was a re publican but he is affiliated with the new that is democratic as it is on the theory that this is a democratic admin istration The p o 1 i t i ceconomic fight gradually is narrowing down from a triangular affair which neces sarily has ended in questionable decisions to a 5050 contest which means one thing or the other It will be months yet
