Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - July 1, 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 WEDNESDAY JULY THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 227 Third Party Misses Huey Townsend Coughlin and Smith Cant Manage It By CHARLES P STEWART CPA A for midable third party movement perhaps or even probably might have developed this year if Sen ator Huey P Long had lived 11 would not j have elected its candidate but it would have jeop ardized P r e s i dent Roosevelts reelectioin for it c e r t a in 1 y would have 5 KILLED 24 HURT IN BUS CRASH drawn m u c h more heavily from his voting strength than from Governor Landons President Roosevelt assuredly must have a 100 per cent solid south to win The late Kingfish unquestionably could have swung Louisiana to a third ticket and possibly two or three additional southerly states It is doubtful that the new deals standard bearer could have stood these defections However Dr Francis E Town send Father Charles E Coughlin and the Rev Gerald K Smith can not do what Huey could have done Not So Widespread No one of them has the King fishs widespread appeal Last year I invited comment from readers concerning Senator Longs program Some of it was adverse of course but it was evident that Huey had many followers particu larly in Louisiana noticeably in to my surprise Michigan If Dr Townsend Father Cough lin and the Rev Mr Smith could get together they might have as much joint strength as the King fish had singly But evidently they cannot get to gether and keep together Instead of being one consolidated leader ship they are three conflicting lead of one another A third party would be some thing to reckon with but a third a fourth and a would be ridiculous Dal Lucky Without implying a suspicion that the new dealers are glad Huey was assassinated the fact remains that they are lucky that he was The new deal administration is remarkably successful at away with a policy of pooh President Roosevelt long apo ijc clarcd it o be an impropriety feu a party chairman to hold ylro federal office In fact he requuv democratic state chairmanships be resigned upon their incumbents appointment to federal to quit one job or the other Sev eral of them had to do it Yet Postmaster General James A Farley has continued as national democratic chairman Satisfactory Answer The anomaly has been much talked about Poohpooh has been the ad ministrations answer It seems to have been satisfac torv When Huey P Long was fight ingthe newdeal administration in the senate the justice departmen began proceedings against Hue adn his lieutenants charging income evasions and actually sent one of the lieutenants to the pcniten tiary Huev being dead and his Louis iana organization in conformity with the new dealers further pro ceedings are dropped This is talked about poohpooh says Attorney Gen eral Cummings And that too seemingly is satis factory Campaign Levies Civil service employes are sup posed to be exempt from levies for campaign purposes It is notorious that they have been so levied oh from 50 cents up as I have heard acquaintances in the civil service express it poohpooh is the answer with jio investigation i Chairman Farley has been ac jrused in print of exacting tribute ifrotn postmasters 1 poohpooh is the only joinder Landon Fishes on His j Last Day of Vacation MACHINE KEPT FROM PLUNGING IN DEEP GORGE Skids at Approach to Natural Bridge in
