Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - August 27, 1951, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited far DM MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THI NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL Lvn United Full Law Wlrtt Centl Copy MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY AUGUST 27 1951 Tblf Paper Consists of Two No 271 One Mans Opinion A Badto Commentary W EARL HALL Managing Editor Revamping Our 2 Major Parties AS an ideal Im for it As a prac tical possibility within the foreseeable future Im not so sure If I seem a bit skeptical its for reasons that have nothing to do the merits of the proposition The mere fact that an idea is good does not alas insure its adoption My reference here of course is to that proposal recently advanced by a good friend of mine Senator Karl Mundt of South Dakota for an alliance between the republican party in the north and the tra ditionaldemocratic party in the south The Mundt proposal differs from the merger proposal which has been so frequently advanced down through the years under which the name republican would go but of existence in favor of some new name Such as Consti tution or Liberty party At National Level Each constituent of the new alliance according to the Mundt previewwould be free to retain its party identity Such merger as there would be between them would be at the electoral college level Hes realistic enough to doubt whether southerners ever can be induced to put a cross in republican square or circle The suggestion is that northern ers would go on voting the re publican ticket as in the past while in the south there would be on the ticket a slate of antiadmin istration electors under the ban ner of the rooster which is the democratic emblem in much of the south Administration democrats would have their slate of presi dential elector too of course 2Party Ideal Promoted On the face of it this arrange ment might appear to be spawn Ing another party but in the opinion of the South Dakota sen ator the effect would be quite the contrary It would he insists tend to promote the ideal of true 2 party government which is the only known way by which ma jority rule can be guaranteed In an extended interview with ifi staff of the United States News and ytotld Report Senator Mundt demonstrated that he had thought his plan through in great detail He was set for any contingency having to do with candidates plat form and such ticklish questions as civil rights States Rights Stressed The platform he thinks should recognize the doctrine of states rights which for so ittany years was perhaps the most important mark of the democratic party The idea of an allpowerful central governmant came in on the wings of the new deal While arriving at a position that would be mutually agreeable to northern republicans and southern democrats on the subject of racial equality might be difficult it could Senator Mundt thinks be made more palatable than the plank written into recent demo cratic platforms by northern dem ocrats angling for the Negro vote Democrats Recognized Coming down to the question of selecting the candidates for presi dent and vice president for the party alliance the South Dakotan suggested a frank understanding with the southern democrats as to whether somebody from Dixie should be on the ticket And heres what he would say to the repub lican nominating convention This time were trying to win a victory for America Were not so much interested in partyism and partisanship as we are in basic Strategic U S Copper Mills Halt Truman Asked to Take Over By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Americas production of strate gic copper dropped to a mere trickle Monday And President Truman was asked tostep into a strike called by the Internationa Union of Mine Mill and Smelter Workers Also halted was production of a considerable quantity of lead and zinc important along with copper in the defense program Mines mills and other plants in at least 14 states were affected The union estimated at least 58 000 workers were involved More than 50 operating plants 95 per cent of the nations capacity from mine to final production line were involved Not All Members Not all the men who left their jobs are members of the IUMMSW Members of AFJL craft unions respected picket lines But maintenance workers kept the minesready for a quick reopen ing Most office workers stayed on the job The IUMMSW was expelled from the CIO last year along with others accused of following the communist party line Years ago it was one of the principal groups in the old industrial work ers of the world The strike hit the big 4 of the copper Ana conda Copper Mining company American Smelting and Refining company and PhelpsDodge cor poration Also invloved were the extensive lead ant zinc operations in the rich Couer DAlene district of northern Idaho anda number of other operations in the nonferrous mining industry which handles metals other than iron East Affected Hit first were the smelters on the east coast then those in the midwest Picket lines were set up tfo violence was reported Union members at the big Barber N J American Smelting and Refining plant said local negotiations also were off

Ogden received only minor injuries He said he went to sleep at the wheel All 3 were returning from Gamp McCoy Wis where they had been training with the 34th national guard division principles So we suggest that with our republican candidate for pres ident we say for example Senator Byrd of Vir ginia or Senator Russell of Georgia as vice president Cabinet Representation Another approach suggested by Senator Mundt would be to have the bannercarrier for the repub licanparty announce well in ad vance of election day a pledge to place 3 or 4 distinguished south ern statesmen in such key posi tions as secretary of agriculture secretary of defense and secretary of commerce By way of example he men tioned Senator Russell of Georgia as a confidence inspiring possibil ity for secretary of defense and Senator Byrd as a madetomeas ure choice secretary of the treasury I use these 2 merely as illustra tions he added Perhaps other equally well qualified southern democrats could be named so that Russell and Byrd couid continue their fine leadership in the sen ate Rajburn Support Courted In the organization of congress under the Mundt formula the pre officers of cither house could be either
