Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - April 28, 1936, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLII FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY APRIL 28 1936 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SUCTIONS SECTION ONE NO 174 Steiwer May Be on Ticket Keynoter Possibility as G 0 P Vice President HOUSE VOTES TAX BILL CHANGES By CHARLES P STEWART G O P manage ments selection of Senator Fred erick Steiwer or Oregon to key note at the Cleveland conven tion has led to condderable talk of him as a vice presidential pos sibility Vice presiden ti a 1 guessing however neces1 sarily is very wild j until the presi dential choice has been made The politicians idea is to bal ance the Consequently the second place nomination is dependent on the nomination for first place Geography Wrong If Gov Alfred M Landon is named in Cleveland Steiwer may be j considered to have a certain amour t of suitability His geography is wrong Geographically speaking an easterner should be picked to match the Kansan But Landon himself seems to be quite popular among conservative eastern voters In fact he is popular enough in that quarter to have caused western progressives to voice suspicions that he is a disi jruised reactionary Now Steawer is a mild liberal As a running mate with Landon he might give a meas ure of reassurance to the uneasy progressive element On the other hand he wouldn t go at all well with Senator William E Borah Satisfactory to Borah He doubtless would be satisfactory to Borah indeed but such a ticket would be as badly balanced as it is easy to imagine Two western men And two wore or iess progressives The east disregarded Conservatism ignored completely Not that Stei wer is immoderately progressive but that would be his atmosphere in combination with the Idaho states man Even some conservative can politicians would be reconcil able with Borah if be were not so uncompromising i They honestly think he would make a formidable campaign He i has the natural qualifications to make him a dangerous radio com petitor of President Roosevelt And he isnt actually upon an examina tion of his record so very radical He has that reputation but he never has voted very radically in the senate The progressives never have considered him dependably one of themselves Past 10 Already Moreover he is 70 al If elected he reasonably could be counted on to die in the white house making way for a real con servative to succeed of course that a conservative was in line for the office Conservative G O P politicians are sure that Borah will not con sent to run on the same ticket with a vice presidential candidate of their selection If he would accept the presiden tial nomination with say Represen tative James W Wadsworth as his partner they might be glad of his campaigning ability to win at the polls reckoning on his associate to finish his term for him But they know that he wouldnt acquiesce in a Wadsworth And a Steiwer is too liberal for them Steiwer and Borah Yet Steiwer unquestionably was picked as the republicans keynot er in part with a view to placating Borah The G O P management wants him to think that he has had the predominant voice though not nominated in dictating his partys platform and the choice of its can didate And Steiwer is one of his best senatorial friends The impression given is that he has been deferred to It will be difficult for him to take a walk after this concession has been made to him Besides Steiwer has the oratory and the presence to make him a good keynoter Scientists Describe Method of Turning Platinum Into Gold WASHINGTON method of turning platinum into somewhat the reverse of the an cient alchemists

morning the king had called his premier and other officials to the palace and insisted on transacting state business but the gravity of his condition was clear when plans were made for Crown Prince Farouks departure from England Wednesday Fuad who celebrated his sixty eighth birthday anniversary March 26 had been in indifferent health many months He had never fully recovered from his serious illness of 1934 when numerous foreign spe cialists were summoned to the summer palace at Montazah Victim of Pleurisy At that time palace sources en deavored to spread the report that the short thickset fair com plexioned king was merely suffer ing from weakness following a mild attack of influenza It now is believed he then was a victim of a severe attack of pleu risy which weakened his heart the troubled political situation in Cairo including the revival of the WAFD party strength leading up to recent street rioting the inter play of British and Italian opinion and the emphasis on military ques tions made it more difficult for the Egyptian monarch to throw off the lingering effects of his 1934 illness Passed Riot Stage His death came at a time when AngloEgyptian relations had only recently progressed from the riot stage caused by agitators to peace ful negotiations for a treaty of al liance To the extent which his death now creates a certain internal in stability in Egypt it is expected to have an adverse effect on British and Egyptian relations and may delay negotiations The fact that Crown Prince Farouk is a minor requiring a re gency council until he comes of age on his eighteenth birthday further complicates matters politically May Regain Prestige The proper handling of the situ ation by British officials may it was pointed out by authorities do much on the
