Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - April 15, 1933, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Edited for the Home VOL XXXIX FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH lOHANS NEIGHBORS ME EDITION MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY APRIL 15 1933 Tins PATER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 165 May Give Up and Go Home Congress Not Quite as Sheeplike as at First house wisnes as By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON April 15 CPA abrupt ad journment of congress any day leaving President Roose velt to meet the rest of his years nationalemer gencies by proc lamation Is sug gested by a con siderable number of lawmakers as a distinct possi bility Capitol hill certainly is less and less amen able to white the days pass Nothing pronounced enough to be called insurgency has developed In the democratic ranks but action in compliance with the slightest hint from the other end of Pennsylvania avenue is not as prompt as it was It ia noticeable that Speaker Rainey each time he guesses at the legislative adjournment date guess es it a little later as multiplying delays upset hia calculations Nn Serious Difference Matters by no means have reached a point where a serious dif ference of opinion between the executive mansion and the capitol even threatens Still there is p democratic element on the hill which no longer responds to every admlnistration recommendation with its earlier enthusiasm All this was to have been ex pected and indeed so it was but that is no reason why Jefferson ian leadership can afford to disre gard it The real danger exists that sooner or later it will drift into a series of long drawn out ar guments and public men generally agree that such a situation simply would not do At best democrats realize that it would be ruinous to theirparty and at worst tt would is official Washingtons consensus that 4he country would not stand it Too Much Talking Already there is an appreciation of the perils of too much talking Then senate where most of it is done is holding it by tacit consent to a minimum and the house of representatives when there is a prospect of a bit of speech making that the managers are apprehensive of as likely to be overly volcanic for the home folks good quits work for the afternoon and scatters In short congress is not uncon scious of the risks involved in any extended controversy Jn the midst of so acute a crisis Nevertheless the chance ofone is ever present Important Issues Policies are being put forward almost daily at present which ap pear to exceedingly large groups and interests to spell changes prac tically of life and death to them Agriculture or organized labor for example may regard as abso lutely essential to its survival some measure which other perfectly honest men look on as fatally un sound and sure to result in ulti mate disaster to the entire people An issue of this sort Inevitably will be fought to the last ditch on both sides in complete sincerity The democrats have the power to force an immediate adjournment of the legislative body in such a case There are statesmen who believe they are prepared to do it It would leave an extraordinary state of affairs for President Roose velt to deal with single handed un til the middle of next winter Simpson Honors DES MOINES April IS Simpson college of Indianola car ried away first honors in the three day
