CENTS 1 COPX ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SEKV1CK MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY AUGUST 21 1936 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OP TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 272 2 Reactions to Speech Latin America Well Pleased But Not Europe By CHARLES P STEWAKT ASHINGTON CPA Cables from Europe in dicate that coun tries in that part of the world were not overly pleased with President Roose velts recent peace speech at Chautauqua N Y By implication it was to the gen eral effect that the unhappy na tions the old world seem ut terly unable to live amicably among themselves that we must recognize this and being singu larly blessed geographically take every possible advance precaution to keep out of their future conflicts It naturally isnt pleasant to overseas peoples to hear the presi dent of the United States so urgent ly advising Uncle Sam to let them stew in their own juice the next time they fall afighting Latin America Delighted But if Europeans were consider ably miffed by the presidential re marks Latin America was delight ed The republics south of the Rio Grande unquestionably have been ever since the collapse of the league of nations very much of the same opinion as the one expressed by President Roosevelt Dispatches from capitals like Rio de Janeiro Montevideo Buenos Aires and Santiago indicate pleas tire over the presidents suggestion that Uncle Samuel while wholly averse to breaking into foreigners quarrels proposes to stand pre pared to defend himself and to aid in defending his neighborhood A New Enunciation This enunciationwas decidedly different in its purport from the sMonioe doctrine 5 James Monroe may not have nxeant it so but his doctrine long has been interpreted in Latin Amer ica as implying a kind of a Yankee overlordship of the new world coun but also interfer ing In its interfering aspect it has been resented And there has been some inter ference in Mexico in Cuba in Haiti and in Nicaragua Venezuela and Chile have been browbeaten though not actually invaded Ar gentinas neutrality was violated by a Yankee cruiser squadron under Admiral Caperton duringthe World war Washingtons diplomacy has been anything but diplomatic in var ious others of the southern republics from time to time At the very juncture when Sec retary of State Hughes was engi neering a world conference on naval limitation a Yankee naval commission was helping Brazil to create a navy

administrations attitude wis If a couple of three of the Latin Americas are prepar ing to fight among themselves North America may as well make whatever is to be made out of pre paring them President Coolidge was no im provement either President Hoover was an im provement His fault was that he was not clever He did not get the credit he was entitled to President Roosevelt IS an im provement and he does get credit for it He is what the Spaniard calls simpatico likable Hes pleasant to talk to understanding of others problems tolerant BIG brotherly F D K Successful It generally is agreed that the Roosevelt administration has been most successful in matters of for eign policy There has been criti cism of Secretary of State Cordell Hulls policy of reciprocal trade agreements thats a matter of

Celebration American market for the American farmer and benefits where needed for the fam ilysized farm were cited by Berry F Halden of Chariton republican nominee for U S senator as im portant pledges in the platform of his party in a talk which featured the evening session of Britts annual hobo day celebration Mr Halden introduced by Frank Senneff local lawyer gave a part of his speech under the handicap of a beating rain but the crowd hud dled under awnings up and down Main street gave close attention We believe in benefits for farm ing the editor added but not mil lion dollar gifts to sugar barons of Hawaii or to capitalists who claim their huge amounts for not farming Indian lands Raps Trade Pacts Mr Halden condemned the recip rocal trade agreements as they have worked out thus far and promised an agriculture free from regimenta tion He took sharp issue with Sec retary Henry Wallace in his view that the individual farmer is not Considerable attention was given to the retiremant of an enormous amount of American farm land from use coincident with a huge influx of foreign farm products the effect of which he said was to rob the American farmer of his own right ful market The speaker began his talk with a promise that there would be no villification of his opponent that so far as he was concerned the cam paign would be confined to issues Sees Two Theories Two theories of government are squarely before the American peo ple he said The new deal stands for bureaucracy by an inner circle a philosophy which has brought haif the world under a dictatorship The republican objective is a return he said to the Lincoln ideal of a gov ernment of by and for the people Here Mr Halden paused to read a quotation out of a recent bulletin from Moscow in which communistic support for Roosevelts reelection was urged In November he declared we will be voting not for man or party but for ideals That independent Iowa communi ties should be permitted to conduct their affairs without interference from Des Moines or Washington was a view expressed by the nom inee Mandate From People Mr Halden contended that with an unprecedented mandate from the people in 1932 the new deal had a great opportunity to perform large service But the platform pledges of economy and simplified government were thrown into re verse With the result he today scarcely an outstanding fig ure in the real democratic party is supporting President Roosevelt The striking of a clock at this point reminded the speaker that evey time an hour rolls by a mil lion dollars of your money is tossed out the window at Washington And next November he added you can close the window Alphabetical Agencies Fulfillment of the pledge against bureaucracy in the democratic plat form he said had been the estab lishment of 100 new aipaabeticaJ agencies fourth of the American I people today he asserted are on the government payroll The num ber is greater than the total of all employes in the industrial plants of America Fourteen principal laws passed by the new deal have called for in creased taxes it was stated In three years the cost of federal gov ernment has been almost doubled Nineteen new federal agencies are in direct competition with private business Its easy the speaker observed to build air castles with other peoples money Its a grand and After the Party Was Over In

in the yards near the Mil waukee station in Britt Below are shown Scoopshovel Scotty wliose inebrialed condition incapacitated him for king work after his formal crown ing Thursday The picture was taken last wasnt able to stir the stew this year Hairbreadth Harry is shown in the picture to the right He was conspicuous by his absence from the festivities Thursday There are rumors that his wearing of innertubes has given him a high hat reputation among fellow hoboes Photos by Lock Engraving by Kayenay glorious buggy ride the new deal has taken us it will be a long and wearisome walk back home Farm Trices Higher Answering Ihe argument lhat the return of republicanism would mean a return to 10 cent corn and 2 cent Logs Mr Halden cited figures to show that the average farm prices during the 12 years of republican rule prior to 1932 had been appre ciably greater than the average for the three years since Agriculture is not being given it due he insisted Its robbed of its market by an illadvised govern mental policy It isnt surprising that the foreign farmers are almost unanimously in favor of President Roosevelts reelection Mr Halden praised Governor Landon alluding to his ready ac ceptance of the presidents invita tion to confer on drought problems at Des Moines and its contrast with the Roosevelt refusal to confer with President Hoover about the banking crisis in 1933 Its not my baby Mr Roose veil said and sailed away on a yacht Gene Raymond and Jeanette MacDonald Are Bound for Altar HOLLYWOOD haired Jeanette MacDonald and blond Gene Raymond who have often said mat rimony and their screen careers wouldnt mix admitted Friday they are altar bound together Announcement of their engage ment was made Thursday night by HARRY PLEASED HE WAS MISSED Former King of Hoboes Asks Britt to Support Him for President Hairbreadth Harry who held the title of king of the hoboes until the election last year at Britt wat pleased when he heard reports that Iris presence had been missed Thurs day at this years celebration at Britt At this years convention Scoopshovel Scotty was reelec ted king and then failed to perform all the functions due to his office because of heavy imbibing The Britt people missed me I understand declared Harry But now they can put their shoulder to the wheel and help me in Novem ber Im running for president you know Harry has been in Mason City for several days and plans to give a speech here soon Hes not sure of the exact date yet Ive been slowed up by a food shortage declared the itinerant traveler who wears intertubes for shoes and refuses to work the singers mother Mrs Anna MacDonald after she and Raymond had been busy denying romantic ru mors for several months Undecided are the time and place of the wedding They want to com plcte a new ranch home before the event Hoboes King Misses Britt Jail by Hair Scoopshovel Scotty Blamed for Lack of Stew wasnt taken to jail he should have been This was the city marshals allu sion Friday morning to the case of Scoopshovel Scotty crowned king of the hoboes during this ommunilys celebration of ho11 day The regal standing of Scotty is very much clouded today While he was sleeping off the effects of the jag which wholly incapacitated him for official business Thursday after noon and evening other boes among the 30 attracted here for the celebration were considering ways and moans to lift the crown from his head Not Heir Apparent A report that Hairbreadth Harry rival contender last year for the kingship of the hoboes was the heir apparent brought vigorous denial We aint got tio time for a guy dat wears innertubes for shoes said Charlie Smith from his boxcar Pullman a little before midnight Hes just out for some notoriety Last year there were indications of strained relations between Hair breadth Harry and his comrades of the jungle This year he arranged to do his presidential campaigning in other parts But the real grievance against Scoopshovel Scotty grows out of the fact that he was so completely pifflicated Thursday that he couldnt prepare the mulligan stew The ingredients had been provided by the local committee but Mr Scott official chef as well as offi cial wearer of the crown couldnt get his mind off sleep long enough to put those ingredients together in the accepted way Delegates Go Hungry The visiting delegates as a result went hungry a condition that hasnt conduced to the popularity of King Scotty Whether Scoopshovel Scotty will be permitted to serve out his year as king is an open question It is altogether unlikely however that he will be elected to succeed himself another year unless in the meantime he can find a way to ap pease his associates for the meal they missed Thursday Just about the last thing that Mr Scott remembers about Thursday was when he said I do to the question propounded on the speak ers stand at a public ceremony Do you take this woman to be your lawful queen The queen incidentally was Art Smith a resident of the Iowa sol diers home at Marshalltown who consented to accommodate the local committee in charge of celebration arrangements Thursdays party was a revival of an event started back in the late nineties by Bailey of Britt T A Potter and a number of other early day Britt residents MUST STAY FREE Says Governments Job Is to Protect and to Help By WILLIAM L BEALE Associated Press Staff Writer
