Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE KGLO 1300 pm Sundiv WOI AMES 610 pm Tuesdiy WTAD Quincy 930 pm Thurs WSUI Iowa City 910 am Sit At last a true story of McKinley R REASONS HARD TO explain most Americans hold President William McKin ley in rather low esteem Hes regarded as having been putty in the hands of an illodored po litical boss Mark Hanna and he is looked upon as a symbol of reactionaryism proponent of high tariff gold standard and all those other issues synony mous with arch conservatism Its fortunate therefore that Margaret Leech author of Reveille in Washington came along and interested herself in one of the least understood of our Presidents In a book off the Harper Brothers Press titled In the Days of McKin ley she either corrects or amends some of these general ly held misconceptions concern ing the Ohio man who occupied the White House at the turn of the century With documentary evidence to support her Margaret Leech widow of Ralph Pulitzer de picts William McKinley as a rather strong character possessed of much charm hu mor and compassion The por trait is against the background of the era in which the United States began to sense her manifest destiny as a world power AT THE OUTSET of this visit it might be in order to clarify the true relationship between McKinley and Mark Hanna Theres the image created by the Hearst press in which Mc Kinley sneezed every time Han na sniffed And theres the image accepted by Margaret Leech in her book Let me dip into Chap 4 of that Leech book for this little excerpt That Hannas influence ruled McKinley was the invention of the political opposition of young William Randolph Hearsts newspapers in particular Han na on the contrary treated Mc kinley with conspicuous defer ence This was an appraisal shared by William Allen White of Em poria Kans then a youthful re porter and by Charles Gates Dawes a youth who was in fact closer to William McKinley than Mark Hanna ever was According to Dawes McKin ley gave the orders and Hanna obeyed them without question H H Kohlsaat McKinleys chief editorial supporter in Chi SHES QUITE THE COP MY WIFE Marie Cirile 32 a New York police
