One somewhat quaint sidelight on the men who were inmates of the Indiana state penal farm when it was opened in presented by the statement of the Church affiliations of the men contained in the first annual report of the superintendent.

Garners anti third term presidential candidacy appeared today to have Bone fitted from president Roosevelt a approval of the Hatch clean politics Bill. The improvement of garners chances coincided with a White House move possibly calculated to organize some of the Campaign machinery which functioned almost perfectly for or. Roosevelt in 1936. Garners Only Public political comment this session was to obtain enactment of the Hatch Bill. His friends have organized a presidential Campaign for him on a basis which scarcely can avoid ultimately to draw or. Roosevelt a opposition. But the Federal political machine May be j Ham Strung by the Hatch Bill because it outlaws organized political activity by thousands of government employees. Postmaster general James a. Farley a smartly run organization also got a Jolt when that Bill became a Law. The democratic National committee opposed but could not Stop it. Or. Roosevelt conferred yesterday with officials of the Good neighbor league which was a cog in the 1936 machine they were accompanied by Charles Michelson. Publicity director of the democratic National committee and Lowell Mellett director of the National emergency Council. None would discuss Che White House conference. Organized by Stanley High who subsequently lost Fauvor with the president the league rallied educational religious and similar organizations to the new Deal. The conference revived third term speculation on the 12th anniversary of the announcement by the late Calvin Coolidge that a i do not choose to or. Roosevelt has avoided any Public commitment on a third term and Washington opinion is divided. There is considerable support for the theory that continued legislative defeats of which congressional refusal to consider neutrally Ami the lending Bill Are spectacular examples will arouse or. J Roosevelt a Battle spirit. He must take his embarrassing reverses with a smile or turn up at convention time next june with a candidate who can continue new Deal control of the party and stand a Chance of winning the november election. That candidate could be himself or some other. No other quite fitting the pattern has appeared so far. It generally is recognized Here that or. Roosevelt does not want another term but that he Cou be Manea Vered by circumstances into making the race. It would split the democratic party wide open and probably Send Farley and a couple More Cabinet officers into the Antl Roosevelt Camp. Those circumstances make the Hatch Bill especially important. A presidents ability to obtain nomination has depended often on the appearance of his own political appointees in Large numbers As delegates at the nomination convention. Observers had Small doubt in 1932 that a Republican National convention less dominated by office holders would have refused to put former president Herbert Hoover up for a second term.
