Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 18, 1936, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLII FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY JANUARY 18 1936 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONK NO 88 SENATE LABORS TOWARD BONUS VOTE SET TO DECLARE HE IS IN SENATE RACE Pronouncement on Third Terms May Affect Whole Slate DBS MOINES Jan 18 Statehouse sources said this after noon Gov Clyde L Herrings form al announcement of his candidacy for the democratic nomination for United States senator will be made within a matter of hours It was indicated that the declar ation of the governors intentions would follow close on the heels of Lieut Gov Nels Kraschels an nouncement yesterday of intention to run for the governorship Kraschels choice of the gover nors own press conference yester day as the place for making his an nouncement was regarded by politi cal observers here as assuring that the two party leaders were in ac cord as to their own immediate political intentions Possible Candidate The Lieutenant governor a short while ago had been regarded as a possible candidate for the senator ship and the six year term it would offer instead of the two year guber natorial term Asked today about any forth coming announcement from himself the governor said he hasnt yet de cided He made it apparent yester day that he will not again seek the governorship by stating after Kraschels announcement had been released Two Terra Precedent not running against him pon dering today whether the governors statement that he believed there was a feeling among democrats tit the two term precedent should be observed was meant to apply only to the governorship or to other elective state officers as well The present democratic major state officials are serving their sec ond terms and with the exception of Kraschel none has yet an nounced his intentions as regards seeking another term Means New Slate Should the other officials decide the two term precedent applied to their offices as well as to the gov ernorship where it has been ob served closely in the past it would mean an entirely new slate of demo cratic officeseekers in the next pri mary Some political observers pro fessed to see in the KraschelHer ring move a showing of strength that might have a deterring effect on the desire of other potential candidates to seek the democratic nominations for the governor and senator FOUR KILLED IN ALABAMA STORM Farming Section on Slope of
