ASSOCIATED PRESS LJ5ASED WIRE SERV1CB MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY AUGUST 3 1934 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 255 Relief Issue in Politics Fletcher Wallace Clash Brings It Into Open By HERBERT PTLUMISIER ASHING TON Aug 3 exchange between Henry P Fletch er chairman of the republican national commit tee and Secre tary Wallace oE the department of a g r i c u Iture on politics in relief definitely brings into the open an issue certain to be fought out on a hundred fronts between now and November Fletcher charges flatly that the administra tion is delaying checks for crop re ductions so they will reach the farmers at a psychological just before election or when the campaign is at its height has countered that the allegation is a contempt ible unfounded partisan state i It is the first time to date two such dignitaries of opposing parties have engaged in such a controversy The charge frequently has been made by lesser political lights that distribution of vast government funds for relief drought aid and crop reduction benefits would be timed to aid the democratic cam paign but it has been more or less ignored by the administration The Personal Note With ihe chairman of the repub national committee and the secretary of agriculture at odds on the question apparently the die ig cast It is bound to be reflected in all stump speeches from now on Washington observers and poli ticians were impressed by the per sonal note injected in Secretary t Wallaces to Fletchers r J It is a in said Wallace for a man of Mr Fletchers intelligence and standing in the republican party to make deliberately for partisan pur poses a completely unfounded state ment designed to stir up ill Fletcher the polished diplomat accustomed to the dignified and suave parlance of diplomacy must have winced abit when he read that It just wasnt as they say in diplomatic circles according to pro tocol Issues for Fall Some politicians profess to see shrewd strategy in Fletchers open charge of democratic skullduggery in handling the relief checks A major point of attack by repub licans in the congressional cam paign was to be centered on the slowness of recovery in business and industry under the new Administration statisticians how ever are predicting that an upturn in business in the fall is a good jfamble If this materializes much of the force of the republican argu ment will be lost Charges that the administration is playing politics with relief funds would come in handy as an issue Fan Dancers Again Wear Pants After Police Make Raids CHICAGO Aug 3 dancers wore

by burial on the battlefield of one of his greatest victories or in the quiet of his home at Neudeck was the great national question today Even the discussions of Chancel lor Adolf Hitlers sudden ascendancy to the presidency were subordinated to the subject of von Hmdenburgs burial place The government wants the body of the field marshal interred in a tower of the great war monument at Tannenberg where von Hinden burgs army slew Russians during the early days of the World war But the house of Hindenburg wants the burial to be with the four generations of Hindenburgs already lying in the family plot To Rest ht Neudeck Present prospects are that the formal state funeral will be held aa scheduled Tuesday with Hitler de livering the1 oration and that the late presidents body will be

assumption of presidential powers in addition to those he ex ercises as chancellor Germans lievvildered Many Germans seem bewildered over the suddenness of events even though nothing unexpected has oc curred It was considered that the chancellor would take the presi dency When von Hindenburg died and that he would seek quickly to gain the allegiance of the army was Hindenburgs chief re liance The nazis however have moved with a nice regard for pub lic reaction Hitlers declination of the title of president because it is indissolubly bound up with the name of the great is re gurded as a decision calculated to retain public support Nazis are jubilant too over the army and navys pledge of allegi ance to Hitler which was made be fore nightfall yesterday These units of armed force were the most likely threat to Hitler and naziism and now they are bound to him by their solemn word Troops Concentrating There are reports that Czechoslo vakian troops are concentrating on their frontier fearing a movement involving Germans Czechoslovakia has watched carefully the situation in Austria with its undercurrent of German involvement Other reports that lack confir mation due to a tight censorship say

academic apprentices who now con stitute an overgrown federal bu reaucracy to sneer at the admin istration of Calvin Cooltdge Let me remind them that if they in their various schemes to redistribute wealth are now able to command the lavish and tod of ten wan ton ex penditure of billions of dollars their opportunity thus to scatter billions is partly due to thewise adminis tration of Calvin CooHdge which In a few short years had not only paid all the expenses of the government outiof current receipts but Had re duced the national debt by the enor mous sum of ten billion Contending that under the new deal individualism was smother ed he said If Calvin Coolldge were alive today he would prefer that square deal of individualism to the new deal of bureaucratic regimentation which has
