Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - December 7, 1936, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS H 0 M E EDITION VOL XLUI FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY DECEMBER 7 1936 THIS PAPZR CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 53 ITALIAN SEES SPAIN Anarchism Predominant PoliticoEconomic Faith couple By CHARLES P STEWART ASH INGTON CPA Carlo Sforza former minister of Italian for eign affairs re cently publish ed in the Unit e d States a n article which seems to me to be the first really under standing diag nosis of Spains internal war yet given to the outside world For several years rather more than a decades ago I was European general manager for a big American news gathering agency My headquarters was in London but the Iberian peninsula was a hot spot even then and I made repeated business trips to cities like Madrid Barcelona anc Lisbon the Portuguese capital studying the situation For example I was in Barcelona when Francisco Ferrer shot as leader of an anarchists abor tive revolt against the then King Alfonsos regime in Lisbon when an anarchistic movement over threw King Manpel The anar chists did not profit for long from Portuguese revolution bul they started it Anarchism Predominates What I mean to say is that an archism was the predominant po liticoeconomic faith in Spain not to mention Portugal Count Sforza asserts that it is yet I believe him Popular conservative parlance classifies anarchism socialism communism and syndicalism as all pretty much one and the same WALLIE READY TO GIVE UP KING Iowa Promised Relief From Below Zero Wave thing They are nothing of the kind The anarchists want no govern ment at all The socialists want a maximum of it When communism gained the upper hand in Russia numerous anarchists and socialists long exiled in other lands hurried thither and were perfectly dis gusted Emma Goldman an archys high priestess in America for half a generation referred to the new system as nothing but state which was an athema to her Socialists said it wasnt socialism Syndicalists want ownership by the actual workers of all the tools of produc tion thats their right or wrong Intense Individualists But Spain Spain was and undoubtedly still is basically anarchistic Count Sforza mentions the Span iards intense His account is that the fascist cam paign under General Franco is as anarchistic as the loyalists resist ance to the establishment of a dic tatorship or a restoration of the monarchy This is not so inccnsitsent a statement as it may seem General Franco is fighting for rugged strong individuals right to grab and hang onto all he can get The loyalists are fighting for the right to bump an overly rugged indi vidualist off when he becomes too strong Has Many Elements Spains loyalist government commonly is referred to as com munistic No comments Count Sforza Under attack by the aristocratic rugged individualists the other anarchistic mass with such socialists such commu nists and such syndicalists as there may welded together temporarily But it is only a tem porary alliance Let the alliance win and it will split up internally in all probability and fall to lighting anew There is a miscellany of folk also to be considered the count re minds smallish busi ness men Have Been Oppressed They have been terrifically op pressed by the individualists in the top brackets and have no in clination to be similarly oppressed again On the opopsite hand the3 have no inclination to be similar ly wiped out by the individualists in the lower brackets The jumble is aplenty thorough and a heap sight more violent than the mixup between parties in the United States For myself I like the anarchists best An anarchist in the old days always was represented as a chap with wire whiskers and a smoking bomb in his hand Ive known a lot of birds but personally veiy lovable POPE STRONGER AND ANXIOUS TO LEAVE HIS BED Urged to Rest and Avoid Exertion Leading to Complications VATICAN CITY Pope Pius gaining strength in his par tially paralyzed limbs asked his physicians Monday to permit him to leave his bed at the earliest possible moment He signed several papers during the morning but deferred action on others saying he would handle them Tuesday when I am up The doctors however joinec with the 79 year old pontiffs in timates in urging him to remain abed and spare himself every un necessary exertion likely to pro duce complications In accordance with his wishes the Holy Father was kept con stantly informed of the many in quiries concerning his condition He declared himself greatly mov ed by the general outpouring of sympathy Likewise he showed great inter est in newspaper reports of his illness Had Good Night A verbal bulletin issued during the morning after a visit by Dr Aminta Milani said the Holy Fa thers condition was Holiness passed a tranquil night

called for con ultation Saturday It was reported however tha Bather Gemilli was received latf Sunday but perhaps was unable to make a medical examination His doctors insisted that quiet so the turgid con dition of his legs might have a chance to readjust itself Fray for RFecovery The Catholics of the world prayed for his recovery during Sunday services that her alded advent The Holy Father had insisted he be allowed to take part in the Vat ican services for the beginning of advent today and the ceremony was prepared as if he were to be present A reported improvement in blood circulation allayed fears of the Vatican city household that the blood dot which developed in his left leg Friday night might spread through the circulatory system to the heart The Holy Father although he kept to
