Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - August 20, 1936, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION CENTS COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRI SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA THUKSDAY AUGUST 20 1936 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONI NO 271 Publicity of Some Declare That Hamilton Travels Too Much By CHARLES P STEWAKT ASHINGTON CPA Many republican adepts in the science of political cam paign manage ments complain of conditions of frightful confu sion at G O P headquarters in Chicago Illustrativ e 1 y it seems that the national c o m mittee has three publicity d i v i sions 1 Pub 1 i ci t y proper 2 Public re SPAIN GETS GERMAN ULTIMATUM Champions of Track and Air Urge Safe Driving lations Z Research Among these three say there i3 no unity of purpose they operate independently of one an other and actually conflict to some extent I got my initial hint of the exis tence of this mixed up stats of af fairs from a very loyal republican who was connected with the G O publicity organization in Presi dent Hoovers day and during the 1932 campaign Impossible Candidate He is a highly intelligent young newspaperman He always and confidentially admitted that Hooverian publicity was terrible that the Californian was an almost impossible candidate to advertise 1932 anjway He is not jealous of his partys present publicity setup for he has a much better job now than he get under its auspices He simply is an impartial commentator Impartial except that it is to his business in terest to have Governor Landon win and it perturbs him to have the Kansiins chances damaged by what he considers bad management At that it isnt exactly bad man agement that he charges but no management whatever Hamilton Spellbinding Republican National Chairman John D M Hamilton is blamed by most of the republican fault finders for the bungling of G O P stra tegy Hamilton should be concentrat ing they assert upon executive du ties Instead they point out he is spending his time spellbinding per sonally here there and everywhere throughout the country They agree that he is an excel lent spellbinder smart as a whip and a very live wire but while he is touring the states they croak the executive end of his task is going to rack and ruin A certain amount ol travel is recognized as necessary for a national chairman but Ham ilton is accused of overdoing it Whos The Candidate Furthermore the Landonian lead cr is referred to as having made the republican campaign almost more Hamiltonian than Landonian Democrats are asking Whos the candidate Hamilton or Landon Even Chairman Farley never has given the impression that he con sidered himself more prominent than President Roosevelt Republicans dont like that ques tion Whos the candidate Hamilton also is accused of hav ing failed to realize that he cannot make one set of promises in one sec tion which likes that set of prom ises and another set of promises in some other section which doesnt like the preceding set Could Be Done This could be done once when promises could be made purely lo cally It cant successfully be done now localities exchanging informa tion so readily and checking on con flicta between speeches Hamiltons critics surmise that Hamilton fails to sense this because hitherto he has addressed only local audiences and fails to realize that what he eays is local nowhere but is heard everywhere The G O P organization has been in hard luck in recent years Publicity No Good I have remarked its publicity was no good in Herbert Hoovers time Hoover notably was unsuc cessful with the newspapermen Chairman Henry P Fletcher of the republican national committee was a conspicuous True he didnt give out anything wrong He didnt give out anything As my friend formerly of the G O publicity staff remarked to LOUIS MEYER IN MASON CITY FOR SAFETY COUNCIL Auto Racer and Fred Key Talk to Local Service Clubs It probably seems queer that a racing driver who constantly deals with high speed should be here in your city talking Louis Meyer three time winner of the Indianapolis speedways Memorial day 500 mile classic told an aud ience at the Hotel Hanford Thurs day noon at a combined luncheon of the Kiwanis and Lions clubs and Chamber of Commerce Meyer was in the city with Fred Key both speaking in the interests of the Na tional Safety council Key with his brother At last year set an air refueling endurance worlds record over Meridian Miss But after traveling upon Amer ican speedways more than miles at a rate usually exceeding 100 miles an hour during the past nine years and after driving over j more than miles annually on American highways without so much as nicking a fender on any ones car I can look from my ex perience and see how dangerous high speed and carelessness Meyer continued Meyer protested against the lax use of the words chancetakers or claiming that whether the driver of a car was a professional speedmerchant or an everyday businessman he could not be classified as such if he used forethought careful planning and skill Gives Three In every accident whether on the speedway or highway there is a definite cause and failure of what the National Safety council calls the three Es either Engineering Education or Enforce Meyer told his audience Our high speed racing activities when done in the proper place under proper conditions are fre quently under less hazardous condi tions than you meet on the streets and highways daily Last year ac cording to the National Safety council more thm were

Hindenburg Starts Return to Germany LAKEHURST N dir igible Hlndenburg took off for FYankfortonMain Germany from the naval air station at m Thursday atato highway patrol These men can do a fine job in checking acci dents if they have your Meyer declared He then answered questions of the audience on var ious phases of the racing game Fred Key Speaks The speed seems to be getting slower down towards my end of the drawled Key in his slow lazy southern accent But may I sub mit that even 100 miles an hour kept up in a plane for 643 hours nnd 34 minutes or over miles of sustained flight without touching Mother Earth calls more than ever for careful planning organization engineering and skill rather than daredeviltry and when my brother Al and I went aloft in the Ole Miss at Meridian to attempt a new refueling endurance flight we figured we at least would be safe from Highway accidents for about a month It is our ambition on this tour to draw a moments attention to the similarity between the successful results in speed and endurance rac success in any other field such as public safety Safety a At the risk of becoming trite or boresome we submit the plea that safety must become a privilege to be protected rather than a restric tion to be disregarded if public safe ty is to become a fact Improper planning and the cool ness that comes from full knowledge of our ship and its problems would have meant trouble and at least the end of our flight By the same standards if the 1935 safety record of one of Ameri cas greatest industrial corporations employing men could have been the record for the nation 000 people who were killed last year by accidents would be alive today May we express the hope that the official departments of your city and state will do everything within their power to make the streets ajid highways he con cluded Moore said one of the blows his stomach The six foot three Negro of dull demeanor said the beating was ad ministered in the presence of Dep

Ready to Act While Italy was ready to step in the picture showing sympathy with the rebel fascists France with its comparatively new socialist govern ment remained lined up politically on the side of

sympathetic toward the cause of the Spanish monarch ists fighting side by side with the fascists against the Madrid govern ment liberals yet the presence of the strong fascist forces among the rebels
