Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 7, 1937, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THI NIWSPAPIR THAT MAKIS ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EblTION VOL XLIII FIVE CENTS A COPV ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY JANUARY 7 1937 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 80 GOODJOKE ONDEMOS Republicans Make Most of Neutrality Probe By CHAKL2S P STEWART S H I N G TON is a corking good joke on the all powerful demo crats that they permitted three republican sen ators to wangle themselves a s the English say into the princi pal spokesman ship f o r n e u trality action on capitol hill Senator Ger ald P Nye North Dakota republican started the mu nitions the resolution creating a commit tee to conduct it Ordinarily the chairmanship of a special congressional commit tee goes to that particular com mittees sponsor provided he is of the dominant party Otherwise while he is named as a member one of the majority gets first place all committee chairmen are to be majority legis lators in fact Nye Wins Out But somehow Nye was ac accorded the premiership among the munitions inquisitors I once asked him how he ac counted for the fact He said he thought it was a piece of good I have my doubts as to that I suspect that it was because the majority failed to realize the value of this investigation j But Nye is a crackingly petent investigator The majority might have fore seen that quiz he instigated would turn out well it mulfed a glorious opportunity However in other hands the investigation might not have been as effective ly employed as in the North Da kotans An Able Assistant Nye also had the assistance of an exceedingly able investigator in the person Stephen Raushen bush Still Nye is entitled to credit for Raushenbush he hired him Well the investigation turned out to be extraordinarily popular Such investigations as Senator Burton K Wheelers into railroad fundamentals as the SECs into other details of high financiering as the FCCs into communica These deal with questions of vast importance but they are fearfully complicated the average citizen doesnt understand them Nyes charge has been one of beautiful The story of a trade in supplies to commit wholesale murder des troy civilization exterminate the human race Republican Voices Nye made the most of all this Some of his fellow committee men saw the point too Senators Homer T Bone of Washington Bennett Champ Clark of Missouri and James P Pope of Idaho all democrats fell in line but not with quite enough initial enthusiasm Senators Walter F George of Georgia democrat and W W Barbour beaten New Jersey re publican werent heard from at all But Senator Arthur H Vanden bcrg of Michigan republican heard from aplenty Next after Senator Nye no proneutra list is so emphatic as he And Senator William E Borah of Idaho He wasnt a member of the committee but he is a proneu tralist Break for Nye Thus neutrality superpopular
