Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - December 24, 1934, Mason City, Iowa t 10 M I Ml i or I NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLI FIVE CUNTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SEKV1CJS MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY DECEMBER 24 1934 THIS PAPER CONSISTS Of TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 63 Politicians Blink Eyes Surprised by Nyes Choice for Post by McNary By HERBERT PLUMMER A S HIN G T O N Dec iticians in Wash ington bl i n k e d their eyes when they learned that Senator McNary of Oregon re publican leader of the senate had named Nye of North Dako ta chairman of the republican committee a s signments It is the first time that one of the progressive republicans ever has served on this committee Nye is in a position now wHere he will have a large voice in deciding what committee assignments re publican senators will get in the future McNary dismissed the Nye ap pointment by merely saying the North Dakotan was in line for it He will take the place of Dave Reed of Pennsylvania who lost out in the elections of Nov 6 For G 0 P Harmony Political observers here however profess to see more in Nyes selec tion They regard it as highly sig nificant that a man of Nyes lean ings is to take over a job hereto fore held by old guard republi cans Many believe that McNary is out to restore peace and harmony inso far as possible in the G O P ranks of the senate It is a subject very close to him One of his favorite expressions is that all republicans look alike to me He has made attempts before to conciliate insurgent senate repub licans and bring back into the fold those who deserted to Roosevelt in 1932 Among this group of senators he the most popularrepub lican leader had for many years They like his attitude which is not that of a dictator From the far west McNary is less liberal in his views than such men as Norris and La Follette but is marked with the pioneer spirit and opposed to many of the conser vative theories of the east Stays in Background McNary has had little to say publicly about how he feels about all this talk of reorganizing the party He has gone quietly along his way keeping as far in the back ground as possible No one doubts however that he has opinions of his own on the sub ject and will be heard from at the proper time He works quietly be hind the scenes and knows about as well as any man on capitol hill what is happening and why His choice of Nye apparently is evidence that there will be no dis crimination among senate republi cans if he has his way WARRANTS SALE

Prosecutor Haucks charge that a malicious and de liberate effort had been made to tamper with the panel and said she didnt even know they had a panel Fictional Background I just took a bunch of fictional background from a dozen cases and wove them into something I thought was funny to expose the complete dumbness of the whole legal sys tem she said The charge of the prosecutor in New Jersey rather gives flavor to the satire dont you think The pamphlet describes the trial and acquittal of a John Doe and mentions a Col Lindberg and a Col Schweartupf Meet in Trenton States attorneys

to State DES MOINES Dec 24 TVGov Clyde L Herring today said he had completed his investigation of the sale of in anticipatory warrants by State Treasurer Leo J Wegman and that in his opinion the sale was perfectly legal The chief executive said he had learned that the Carleton D Ben company to whom the warrants were sold had worked out the plan for the transaction at the request of Treasurer Wegman The governor also said Beh had previously discussed the matter in formally with him and that he hnJ agreed the method of financing would be beneficial to the state Not at Meeting Two complications the governor declared were responsible for his investigation ordered late Satui day He said he had not been at the meeting Nov 14 when the execu tive council authorized issuance of the warrants I was not there he said to day but I find that there was a majority present and the warrants were therefore legally authorized The second factor of the gover nors inquiry was the absence of a public notice concerning the is suance of the warants Not Legally Necessary It is regrettable that there was no more publicity concerning the proposal to issue the warrants he said Howeyerunder the termsof the Iowa law such1 was not legalry necessary It would have been better to have done so I believe The Beh company has filed its application with the treasurer for the issue the governor said he had determined and that Wegman act ing according to provisions of the sinking fund statute had allotted the entire amount to the Des Moines investment firm Protests From Several Questioned as to whether other bankers or investment firms had participated in the investigation the governor said There were some protests from several persons that they had not been allowed to take up part of the warrants Several objected to the 5 per cent interest rate Perhaps they could have done its easy for the other fellow to squawk after the deal has been put through Maybe they would have bid in at a lower maybe not Beh Firm Praised The Beh company was praised by the governor for exerting its efforts to help the slate out in freeing pub lic money tied up in closed banks Beh has come to our
