Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - April 30, 1937, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKK ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLHI FTVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS AND UNITED PRESS PU1X UEASEP WIRES MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY APRIL THIS PAPER CONSISTS Of TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONZ NO 175 New Party Lineup Talk Everyone Assumes That Is What Plans LANES SINK REBEL BATTLESHIP CHARLES P STEWART IN G T O N CPA L Stokes a po litical commen tator for whose opinions both official Wash ington and the capitals news paper corps have a high re spect spoke in the most casual fashion in a re cent article of the new party that President Roosevelt has It was just a n incidental reference Tom did not take the trouble to assert that the presi dent does envision a new party He simply took it for granted that everyone knows he does And its a curious thing that everyone at least here does know it and yet no one mentions it as something he has just discovered At Earlier Stage Wouldnt one suppose that at an earlier stage of the game some observer would have exclaimed Good gosh the president en visions a new party But by no means Realization of the iact that this is what he envisions developed so gradually that no one sensed it until now it is generally assumed that everyone was aware of it all along It isnt news It simply has dawned on political folk by de grees imperceptibly as old age creeps on I do not believe that President Roosevelt himself premeditated a new party when he came into office Crept Upon Him I think that the program insid iously crept up on him too Anyway it is recognized now Oh the old party names prob ably will survive but not the same two old parties Indeed they do not survive at present Recently witnessed the amazingincident of as an oldtime Jeffersonian as Senator James F Byrnes of South Carolina appeal ing to Senator Charles L McNary of Oregon the republican leader in the upper congressional cham ber for support against the ad ministration Without many exceptions the elder statesmen on capitol hill are antiadministrationists Defy White House This is understandable These oldsters feel that their various con stituencies are pretty dependable their notion is that they can defy the white house and still be re elected They may be wrong but that is how they reason The youngsters are the chaps on whom the president chiefly relies And the youngsters most of them respond Why wouldnt they They were swept into office on President Roosevelts coattails They havent the consciousness of independence that their elders have For that matter their elders may be mistaken However an elder especially a senator with five years more to serve can better afford to be mis taken than a young representative r The ancient senator probably will white house support die before his term runs out What I reached that conclusion be does he that in cause I understood that the direc all likelihood he will be dead on tor of the budget made the im next election day But the youngpounding recommendation to Can ster has a political future to be said Bankhead looked forward to The democratic senate leader Want New Party I ship appeared to have strong sup port including the aid of most re publican members for the Byrnes 10 per cent reduction plan as op posed to the house proposal Avoiding Partisanship I dont want to inject any par tisanship into the economy move but I dont believe the president wouldmake any reduction unless a desperate situation forced him to do Senator Frederick Steiwer said I do not think that the Byrnes plan is the best way to achieve economy as the most satisfactory method would be to make specific reductions where feasible but it appears to be the only probable choice at present The president already has power to spend less than congress authorizes if he desires but he has nevtr exercised that power Congress has consistently been under the budget estimates but the president now seeks to make it appear that theblame for lack of economy should be placed on congress instead of the executive BankheadAsks Economy Compromise THINKS VM4TF Fair Weather Promised SS GET TOGETHER Speaker Admits He Has Not Talked Problem Over With President WASHINGTON of the House William urged a compromise tweon rival house economy proposals The house has proposed that President Roosevelt be authorized to make optional cuts in appropri ations up to 15 per cent Strong senate sentiment backs an out right 10 per cent cut in all appro priations bills Bankhead who previously had said he was authorized to say that President Roosevelt favored the house proposal said Friday that he had not discussed the matter with the president Bankhead predicted that when the president returns from his gulf coast fishing trip he would be very glad to confer with the senate and house appropriations committees regarding vyhat meth od was best to accomplish savings 400 Million Deficit The present budget situation due to the size of appropriations and falling off of estimated new revenue indicates net deficit next year Bankhead said that the house proposal broached by Represen tative after jfwhite house conference and calling for impounding of 15 per cent of major appropriations and the Senator James F Byrnes S proposal for a mandatory 10 per cent cut have the same ob Senate opposition to the house suggestion however was based on the fact the house measure would leave up to the president full con trol over savings He could attempt to make reductions up to 15 per cent but also could continue ex penditures at the present autho rized level The main thing is to save some said Bankhead The main matter is one of detail not of purpose Both senate and house proposals have the same objective and might be worked out in con ference between the two Didnt See President Bankhead said that while he never discussed this thing with the president as to impounding as opposed to a horizontal cut I thought I was authorized to say the impounding proposal met with Mr Roosevelts Bankhead indicated that Can non had impressed on the speaker that the Cannon proposal had DES MOINES weary of heavy rains high winds and subnormal temperatures was assured Friday that spring is on the way The weatherman forecast gen erally fair weather Friday
