Street S W East of I O 0 F Home Nil chance for service than we have this week stated Lee P Loomis publisher of the Mason City Globe Gazette aa spokesman for the ex periment being launched As a standpat republican I come to tell you in all reasonableness what this drive means no matter on which side we stand We are not as you know and I know living in normal times We cannot evaluate today in the terms of yesterdays weights and meas urea For three or four years ear nest and honest men have striven with heartbreaking and heartbrok en anxiety to restore and to balance those unbalanced conditions which have resulted in starving people or at least in dolefed people on one hand and on the other huge sur pluses of unmarketable commodi ties their values destroyed by the lack of a reasonable purchasing power Every leverage known to the philosophy of yesterday has been exerted with earnestness and with sincerity and with almost despair ing hope but without avail Only in the uncharted lands of tomorrow was the solution to be found There Is No Alternative The question before us contin ued Mr Loomis ia not Will this plan work It is God help all of us if this plan does not work We have no alternatives or rather the sole alternative to the 100 per cent suc cess of the NRA is chaos too terrible to contemplate Mr Loomis urged that business men who have individual instances of where the NRA has affected hardships and sacrifices can well af ford to be patient and tolerant be cause some of the new employes and increased wages are being paid out of red balances on the books of the firms or corporations Those who can contribute noth ing else to the NRA must buy stated Mr Loomis Buy from firms with the NRA signature but above all buy Buy not wisely conserva tively the things that you need buy the things you want buy with out counting the cost buy without thinking where it is coming from Do you suppose the businessmen where the money is coming from that they are paying these new employes 7 They are hiring on Wth and you have got to buy the same way If you cant sell buy It 3 going to cost the employer more and there is going to be no return o that employer for awhile How ong the lapse will be before the re urn begins depends upon the united support of an aroused people We are not in this army on dress par ade We are in the trenches and the zero hour is here Our service is not a matter of uniform and bands and trappings but a matter of hun ger and cold and danger and sacri fice All Must Serve All of us must give all of us must serve and I want to say that the man or woman worker whose only contribution to the NBA is to accept shorter hours for the aame time will be the profiteer in this war The success of the NRA will de mand from the American people patience tolerance willingness to understand the other mans prob lem determination that the chiseler and the profiteer both shall be de nied the approval of his fellows After all gentlemen the proposals of the NRA are something new un der the sun said Mr Loomis It is unlike anything In the phil osophy of Marx or Lenine Hitler or Mussolini Washington or Lincoln but the underlying principle Is cen turies old Two thousand years ago on the hillsides of Galilee an Ar tisan a carpenter propounded to the little gathering of simple folk that surrounded Him the revolution ary idea of the Golden Rule Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself1 Today the NRA cornea to you and says Put your neighbor first and al these things will be added unto you Urges Support Bernard Manley president of the Retail Merchants association stated that the retailers had an im portant part to play in the drive He stated that the code submitted is the greatest agreement ever drawn up in business in the United States Businessmen have gone into bankruptcy not because they were poor businessmen but because they had a conscience The elimination of the sweatshop and child labor In the retail store has been accom plished We cannot see clear around the wheel yet but we can adopt this program Gentlemen lets get be hind it OWAG0PIN STATE MEETING Republicans Draw Up Plans and Study Candidates for 1934 DES MOINES

subscribe to the automobile code or not get the blue eagle think maybe the American people will crack down on him by putting their blue eagles on other cars Johnson told newsmen re garding the automobile magnate Not Power Enough Some NRA officials were saying privately that the wage raising agreements and permanent codes of fair practice do not yet appear des tined to create sufficient purchasing power to keep ahead of Wgher prices resulting from the greater costs which business is undertaking for NRA Expansion of credit through the reconstruction corpor ation was planned to help business bear these higher coats until mass purchasing can take over the job Jesse Jones reconstruction cor poration chairman was back at his desk after conferring with Presi dent Roosevelt He declined comment on the presidents proposal for ad vancingcredit to any NRA Indus tries but high official quarters said four or five days would be requir ed to complete detailed plans Big Drive Planned Axbigr drive to develop this mass buying also is intended but not be fore the administration can feel con fident that recovery is well estab lished But the less sanguine officials ex pressed the belief that a major auxiliary would be some measure of inflation They were not ready to say or intimate however that this thought was In the mind of Johnson or of President Roosevelt Johnson himself was all enthusi asm last night as he addressed a great parade staged for the blue eagle through the capitals streets climaxed with the fireworks and pageantry down by the shaft of the Washington monu a slender oak sapling from Mount Vemon destined to be an ever growing monument that commemorates these great deeds Tell With Pageantry We are here to tell with pagean try and pyrotechnics the beginning of the end of perhaps the greatest peril that has ever beaet this na tion he said as the autumn rolls on you will see that the old gospel of despair the theory of human helplessness and of our inablity to do anything to prevent these ghastly economic depressions was a false gospel after all Much of Johnsons elation rose from the gradually resolving nego tiations which had brought the coal industry to the drafting not only of a code of fair practice but of con tracts by which the great bitumin ous fields north and south are to go solidly union Statement by Lewis A measure of the magnitude of this accomplishment was the state ment by John L Lewis president of the United Mine Workers of America that it represented the greatest forward step to date in the recovery movement The coal job however was not yet complete and not due to be be fore tomorrow at least The agree ment already announced was upon the basic principles and patient labor still was in progress to com plete the contracts and the code Similar work continued for the less sensational but even more far spread code of fair practice for the entire retail trade of the country Both are
