ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WiKE BKKVICB MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY APRIL 27 1935 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SKCTION ONK NO 169 Mills Likely Candidate Nomination Would Receive Blessing of Hoover By HERBERT PLUMMER ASHINGTON April 27 Washington poli ticians quick to sense anything unusual in the fortunes of G O lost no time in pouncing on the speech of Ogden L Mills former secretary of the treasury a t Brunswick Maine in which he denounced the policies of the Roosevelt admin istration Not that a de nunciation of the new deal by Mr Mills is anything unusual He has been doing that right along and with much feeling lor several years What made this particular speech significant however in the estima tion of politicians is that it was de livered almost before former Presi dent Herbert Hoover had returned to Palo Alto after his muchtalked of visit to the east Presumably Mr Hoover and Mr Mills had an opportunity of seeing each other and chatting while the former was in New York If they did then its fairly certain that the future of their party came in as a topic of conversation See Hoovers Ideas Mills is credited in some circles as being the former presidents fav orite candidate for the republican presidential nomination in 36 pro vided of course that Mr Hoover himself is removed from the picture He has said or done nothing to confirm such a suspicion As a mat ter of fact he is on record as having said there area dozen or more men in his estimation who would make good candidates The HooverMills admiration for each other however is sufficient for politiciansto

capable of pro ducing the wealth and wide pros perity essential to Man of Observers see a distinct Hoover flavor in that statement At about the same time Mills was I making his speech in Maine Wil

group of editors as a man of destiny He can do nothing to affect his I own political said White He will become impossible or in The Hoover curve may be upward it could not quite be downward it may be
