Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - April 13, 1935, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLI FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY APRIL 13 1935 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 157 Republican Meets Set Leaders Have Great Hopes for Little Conventions HERBERT PLUMMER 1ASHINGTON April 13 Republican lead ers here are re luctant to tal about it openly but p r i v a t ely theyll admit thej have great hope for the miniatur party convention scheduled to be held soon Republicans o the middlewes are to get to gether presuma bly some time in May while thosi of the six Nev England states may meet even sooner Aware of the fact that too much ballyhoo over such meetings fre quently results in their not measur ing up to expectations the G O P high command is doing little public predicting It has high hopes how ever that interest and enthusiasm in the partys future will be stirred and concrete evidence given the country that G O P is far from being dead If these two sectional meetings are successful republican chieftains believe the idea will be taken up by members of the party in the middle Atlantic and far western states Criticism Encouraging It was to be expected that the re publicans would show some signs of stirring atthis time With nomi nating conventions and primaries for presidential preference just a little more than a year away neces sity for some move toward organ ization for the 1936 campaign is evident Then too the criticism being lev eled of late at the new deal and President of it from the democrats has been encouraging to repuBU eaisciieauied njeetings willj depart from the run of political powwows where high sounding resolutions proclaim faith in the party and its principles or whether there will be an attempt to strike out boldly on a new path remains to be seen It is known that some are counsel ing the latter course urging that old methods be discarded and that a militant campaign against what President Roosevelt chooses to call the new order of things be in augurated A Common Ground Republican leaders long have realized that the greatest difficulty with which they have had to con tend in recent years is the divi sion in their ranks between con servatives and liberals They also know that if they hope to regain strength and return to power some middle ground on which both can stand must be found They believe the new deal of fers such While the conservative and liberal wings of the party would be unwilling to surrender their pet beliefs for the sake of a republican victory in 36 it might be possible for both to unite on a platform which denounces the new deal Senator Borah of Idaho for ex ample probably wouldnt find it at all difficult to go along with the party on a proposition like that There are others in the ranks of G O P like him 3 POWERS PLAN PARLEY

DAYS UNTIL CASTER MGARRAN RAPS OLD CWA PLAN Says He Understands It Will Be Used in Relief by Government WASHINGTON April 13 lenator McCarran D Nev said oday he understood the old CWA Ian was going to be followed in h e governments works drive I understand they are going to jo on the old civil works adminis ration plan he said The CWA was the greatest fizzle there ever vas They might just as well slush ut the money McCarran was the leader of one f the hottest fights over the works ill in the senate He led the attempt to make it mandatory to pay relief workers the same hourly wage rates received by employes in private in dustry Opposed by Administration His efforts were opposed by ad ministration advocates of month security wages The result was a compromise providing that wage rates prevailing in private in dustry should be paid workers on permanent public buildings erected with work relief money But now McCarran said today it seems as though they dont want to construct federal buildings be cause such construction is too slow Commenting on the wages issue he said Theyll either have to tear down the wage structure of the country or else follow the spirit of the Mc Carran amendment It looks to me as though they are vitiating the spirit of the amendment I have al ways contended that they are try ing to tear down the wage scale Expects No Trouble McCarrans comment was prompt ed particularly by the disclosure yesterday that at least one demo cratic leader in the house expects the compromise wage requirements to give the administration no trouble Representative
