CHAKLES P STEWART ASHINGTON What does the future hold for the more freakish of the outstanding per sonalities devel oped by the cur rent presidential campaign When the cam paign has ended will these pecu liar folk sink back into incon spicuity or wi 11 some of them at least remain in definitely in t h e national fore ground Gov Alf M LandOD of course is not one of the number Nor President Roosevelt They are the normal antagonists Norman Thomas isnit a frcaX either Nor is Earl Browder Browder in particular decidedly is a radical but he has an under standable program His future and Thomas arc calculable They will be licked overwhelmingly at the polls and they expect to be Afterward they will go right on leading their respective groups as long as they live in all likelihood A Queer Quintet The really queer quintet consists of Representative William Lemke Dr Francis E Townsend Father Charles E Coughlin the Rev Gerald L K Smith and Senator Rush Holt especially since he did the keynoting at Father Coughlins recent gathering in Cleveland Perhaps it is incorrect to say that Dr Townsends future is un predictable He is too old to las long Senator Holts future also would be easy to prophesy if he were coming up this year for reelection He certainly would be beaten and that would dispose of him perma nently As an exceedingly babyish senator he ought to be reason ably modest or polite anyway He undoubtedly is too fresh to make a hit with the average voter how ever successful he seems to have been as a Coughlinite keynoter Has Until 1941 But Holt has until 1941 to serve on capitol hill This gives him quite a while 10 improve on his tactics He oo viously has undertaken to be a second Huey P Long and as yet hasnt acquired the hang of it But the fact is lhat the West Virginian genuinely is a very tright young man He behaved quite creditably early in his stfy in Washington Then apparently liia head swelled and he is trying to be a statesman prematurely Perhaps he will have recaptured his judgment by 1941 and be as good as Huey That would make him a factor to be reckoned with for no one knows how long Lemke Experienced Representative Lemke though as freakish as anyone is an ex perienced politician He did not put all his eggs in one basket Besides proclaiming him self presidentially he saw to it that he likewise was renominated for the house of representatives Thus even though defeated for the white house a hazard that its impossible to believe he doesnt recognize de spite his refusal to admit it he still is pretty sure to remain in congress 3 soundingboard for lots mote f his oratory If he has any strength at all outside his home district it be mainly farm strength Assuming that agriculture is fairly well satisfied with its lot in the course of the next four years he probably will have fizzled out entirely by 1940 Should the farm ers continue discontented however or get more so there is a chance that his potency will increase stead iiy Tied As Spellbinders As spellbinders the Rev Father Charles E Coughlin and the Rev Gerald L K Smith are about tied Father Coughlin has been so generally heard via the radio that it is unnecessary to comment on the quality of his eloquence The Rev Gerald L K is not so well known on the air but take it from me he is a good talker One may not agree with him but he is en tertaining to listen to He has in particular what isnt so conspic uous in Father Coughlin a lively sense of humor Nor is he any such imitator of Huey Long as Senator Holt is He preaches the Kingfishs philosophy but he does it in his own fashion Indeed of all the five prime po litical freaks of today I would ramble on the Rev Gerald L appeal to last longest I don t un derstand why his Louisiana congre gation which he left to join the Kingfishs organization allowed him to get away from St Even U one disagreed with every word he said his sermons should have been a treat Id think FREEDOM CHALLENGED Spanish Government

willingness to With Canada Shows Gains Cattlemen of Canada Get Big Benefits by Treaty By EDWIN B HAAIUNSON WASHINGTON C3 Federal economists reports Saturday that movement of farm products to and from Canada had jumped 24 per cent during the first six months of the reciprocal trade treaty An analysis prepared by the ag riculture departments bureau oi foreign crops and markets showed the percentage of increase for ex ports and imports of agricultural products to be identical as compar ed with the same period during 1935 The trade figures were made pub lic shortly after Secretary Roper forecast negotiations for a recipro cal trade agreement with Great Bri tain Returning from Europe Roper said the Canadian trade agreement has arrested British attention Canadian Cattlemen Benefit The citrus industry in this coun try and cattlemen in Canada were said to be chief beneficiaries in ag ricultural trade between the two na tions Agricultural exports to Canada Tor the first six months of this

positions At dawn the rebel forces had only to capture Toledo before fac ing a virtually unimpeded road to Madrid Simultaneously the rebel compa triots in the northern section of Spain launched an assault on the San Sebastian front where the fighting between the loyalist de fenders and fascist attackers has been waged bitterly throughout the week Headquarters Shifted The rebel junta shifted its head quarters southward from Burgos to Valladolid to bring the nerve center of its forces nearer Madrid Within the loyalist capital itself the Catholic churchs alliance in most cases with the fascist rebU cause was outspokenly opposed by the socialist priest Father Juan Garcia Morales former member of the Spanish chamber of deputies who charged many priests with aid ing the rebellion while enriching themselves As the bloody civil war in Spain moved to a decisive battle for con trol of Madrid the ramifications oJ the fascistmonarchist vs socialist communist struggle were causing grave concern in European capitals Kay of Hope Seen A ray of hope shown through the blackening war clouds with Italys contingent acceptance of the terms of the proposed French neutrality pact Italy said she would declare an embargo on arms to Spain if the other European world powers would do likewise In Berlin the situation became electricwith increasing antiRus sian fury sweeping the nation The nazis accused the Soviets with aid ing the Spanish socialistloyalistic cause at the expense of the fascist rebel forces toward which the nazi government is symphathetically in clined politically At Hendaye

presented a choice between the pig in the poke policies of the new deal and American freedom of enter In his first major eastern address the republican nominee pledged himself so far it liea within my power to protect for America our heritage of freedom and opportuni The Kansan spoke from a plat form on the Tarn OShanter golf course a mile from the village of West Middlesex where he was born almost 49 years ago He for his topic the American way of The word American1 xxx means an attitude of heart and Landon said an outlook on life It means not only deep love of liberty and justice but courage to face the dangers and responsibilities that go with liberty xxx Americanism Challenged This American way of life is be ing challenged We are told that it does not meet modern requirements xxx Some are trying to supplant our institutions by others from abroad Periods of depression are favor able for reviving ancient and dis credited systems of society and gov ernment and presenting them as the sure way of gaining Utopia xxx The confidence of many of our people in our way of doing things has been shaken They are wondering whether we may not have to scrap our American institu tions This doubt and distrust is fostered by unstable men to whom it is always dangerous to give polit ical power xxx Before the depres sion such phrases as the onward sweep of democracy were common Now in many parts of the world democracy is in retreat and dictatorships are Defeatists the governor said con tended we must choose between freedom and Heritage of Fredom Let us not surrender to any such counsel of the candidate said Let us not abandon our de termination to win security and abundance without sacrificing any of our precious heritage of freedom In this depression as in every depression there are timid souls who fear that the temporary set back is to be permanent There is nothing to justify any such conclu sion We have had bard times be fore xxx We are told now however that we got out of previous depressions because of the natural growth of tfie country and the westward ex pansion of the frontier We are warned that we are at the end of that era of expansion and must now face a new situation The remedy offered is that the federal government shall restrict production dole out jobs and parcel out business opportunities This ar gument instead of being progres sive is 40 years behind the New Frontier Found During the depression of the 1890s Landon said a new fron tier was frontier of invention and new Under our American way of he continued men with cour age and imagination were free to occupy this new frontier and devel op it They built a greater America Our people were able to buy the new luxuries comforts and conveniences because they had new purchasing purchasing power that came not in checks from the treas ury but from the production of goods All this was achieved without undermining any American institu tions It was achieved by continuing to encourage free enterprise Freedom of enterprise does not mean that the government shall do nothing Government must always be on the alert to repress violence and fraud to terminate special priv ilege and unfair practices to protect the everyday American in carrying on projects that are beyond the scope of private Proposals for Change Referring to proposals for changing the form of government Landon government power must be used unflinchingly to correct the abuses and inequali ties which admittedly So far as he said this should be done by the individ ual slates or by among the states In the case of abuses wt ;
