ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIKB 82HV1CB MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY JANUARY 101935 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OK TWO SECTIONS SECTION QNJE NO 77 Man Behind the Scenes9 New Democrats in Congress Sent to See Garner By HERBERT PLUMMER ASHINGTON Jan 10 UP Congressional in siders are pass ing the wora around privately to the hostof democratic new comers in both senate and house that one of the first places they should visit o n capitol hill is one room office right back of the senate chamber Its the place where the vice president of the United States may be found most of the time The reason is they are all con vinced jack Garner is destined to be about the most dominant per sonality behind the scenes on the hill this winter in the working out of the administrations legislative program Those who should know believe that he will be an even more com manding figure this session than in the last In the T3rd congress every one recognized how much President Roosevelt relied on the ruddyfaced Texan He was perhaps more than any other one individual the con tract man between the opposite ends of Pennsylvania avenue Breaking a Precedent There are several reasons for the belief that President Roose velt will lean even more heavily on Garner for guidance m maneuver ing with congress this session One is that he quit his beloved Uvalde a month before the date for convening congress Since he broke a longstanding habit of getting in to Washington only a few hours be fore congress actually got under way everyone here started guess A favorite surmise was that be He had been here era an only a few hourfc befurihe emergea from the white house after a conference with President Roosevelt and an nounced that the executive end of the government would take no part in an affair which strictly concern ed the legislative branch A Clear Conscience Shortly thereafter the speaker ship candidate believed to LC Gar ners choice his close personal friend Sain Rayburu of Texas withdrew The statement from the steps of the white house removed all possi bilities of later accusations being hurled at him that he took sides It did another thing too He now is able to lay down the law in the coming months if necessary or Ra capitol hill with a clear conscience He is outside any factional strife i which might arise as the result of Pthe speakership tilt More evidence of the important Fre part he is to play in the ooming nif session is to be found in rumors em the anating from the white house Much plisj of the silence which prevailed in of Tr nei quarters prior to the conveu of congress on the adrmnistra legislative plans is credited to jGarner si of ll veupil Station Looted by Fairfield Bandit DO J Jiedyj FAIRFIELD Jan 10 retuijunmasked bandit looted the Coryell weekfil station on the west city
