VOL LET Associated Pica and Vailed Press Full Leased Wires Five a Copy CITY IOWA THURSDAY JULY 4 1916 This Paper Consist ot Two One PHILIPPINES LAUNCH NEW REPUBLIC Senators Hopeful Truman Will Approve OP A Bill pnrun SPEND HOLIDAY WORKING OVER FINAL DETAILS Demo Leader Barkley Expects to Present New Measure Friday Washington IP Disregarding the Independence day holiday senators hopefully fitted together a new price control extension bill Thursday to take the place of the measure vetoed by President Tru man Democratic Leader Barkley Ky announced he expects to have the new legislation ready for the senate floor Friday and there was an undercurrent of optimism that it might prove acceptable at the white house legislation apparently was going to vary only slightly from the vetoed bill but both repub lican and democratic members of the senate banking committee seemed confident itwould not be rejected byMrTruman In its preliminary draft the new bill would provide a 12month ex tensionof the warborn price con trol program and renewrental ceilings for that full year But the chances were that it would contain only a slightly modified version of the pricing formulas which led Mr Truman to term the original extension measure an impossible bill What is more one or possibly both of those price formula modi fications will come into being as a result of the sponsorship of Sen ator Alben W Barkley D the majority leader and as such Till Trumans spokesman in the senate It has been generally under stood on capitol hill that last Sat urdays veto came as a surprise to Barkley Mr Truman announced in that communication his fundamental objection to a manufacturers pricesetting amendment spon sored by Senator Taft and to a companion provision af fecting wholesalers and retailers which was advocated by Senator Wherry RNebr Barkley offered the committee Wednesday a revised version of the amendment and said he probably would do the same Thursday for the Wherry said in i that price ceilings for pro ducers manufacturers and proces sors must reflect the price chargei for a product in the first half of October 1941 plus the weishle average unit cost increase in the affected industry Barkley proposed a simplified version merely stating that the maximum official price must re turn atleast the average dollar price during the calendar year 1940 plus the increased manufac turing producing or processing cost since then Wherrys amendment stipulated that ceilings for distributors wholesalers and retailers must al low them their Jan I 1946 mark ups or discounts based on current costs Barkley hasnt announced yet how he proposes to modify that one Wherry however told a report er that I wont accept anything thats not better than what we got Truman Signs AntiRacket Despite Labor x Washington President Truman put the socalled Hobbs antiracketeering act on the sta tute books Thursday despite the hitter opposition of organized labor The presidents action received warm approval in most quarters on capitol hill although some foes of the legislation condemned his decision to sign the measure For the moment union leaders had nothing to say about the fail ure of their long fight of mdre than 3 years to keep the Hobbs measure from becoming law Several legislators said Mr Trumans action will do much to help restore friendly relations with democratic party members who were irked last month by his veto of the Case labor disputes bill which embodied similar pro visions Some of them declared the ac tion would give impetus to their drive not riext broad new labor regulatorylegislation those who criticized the presidential decision praised the manner in which he made it a special mes sage to congress giving his rea sons for the move Usually a pres ident only sends such messages when he vetoes a bill The measure as signed by Mr Truman late Wednesday makes It a felony to interfere with move ment of goods in interstate com merce by robbery or extortion or by threats of violence Its author Rep Hobbs D said the chief purpose of the bill is to permit farmers to take their goods to market with out interference by unions This has not always been possible in the past he declared The first lbor law of general application to be enacted iri the Truman administration the leg islation provides for fines up to and prison terms of up to 20 years for violators

68 of Kansas died early Thursday in Doctors hospital after an illness of S weeks EDITORS NOTE After Earl G Miller upset Wayne Rones for the republi can nomination for secretary of state Frank Nye associate edi tor of the Cedar Rapids Ga zefte decided to find out who the democratic candidate is The following is condensed from his personality sketch By FRANK NTE Dubuque Republicans are in one of those dilemmas that the open primary election system brings every tew years Theyve eot Earl G Miller as nominee for secretary of state Many republicans do not want him but they dont know what to do with him Nobody thinks Miller can be in duced to resign his nomination So the next best thing some re publicans think is to elect his opponent All of which brings us to an Irishman by the name of Michael Patrick Hogan commonly known as Mike As democratic nom inee for secretary of state he will oppose Miller in the fall campaign Hogan is a pleasant affable fel low with a host of friends among both the democrats of Dubuque and the few brave souls here who will own up to being republicans A family man who will be 42 years old come Oct 8 he is en gaged in the general insurance business with Clarence H Sanner Hogan also serves as justice of the peace Mike Hogan is one of those fel lows who has a bit of old Erin in his bluegreen eyes who is good looking and who has a winning smile He is one of those rare individ uals who is blessed with the abil ity and the build to wear clothes well over the lean 5 foot 11 inch frame which supports his 170 pounds He is a good conversationalist and an easy talker In fact Hogan revealed that he unwittingly talked himself into the race for secretary of state I have preached and preached for years ant years he said that young people should take more of an interest in politics I preached about young people so often that I just talked my self Into the race I was asked why I didnt practice what I preached Hogans background includes 10 years with the Midwest Lumber company 2 years with the Acme Paint company nearly 4 years with the Murphy Varnish com pany and his present work since 1941 It also includes 8 months as a gnandi dancer or section work er for the Milwaukee railroad in 1940 The first day a fellow handed me a crow bar he recalled I asked him where he wanted me to carry it He said Carryit Youre going to use it all day Mike once beat 16 opponents for MICHAEL PATRICK HOGAN the democratic nomination for justice As for the sudden interest that has been tafcen in him since Mil lers surprise nomination Hogan has no explanationHe is as puzzled as everyone else about his opponents victory over Ropes I always understood that Mr Ropes was a good public official Hogan said It seemed odd to me that he was the only incumbent defeated As for Earl Granville Miller I wouldnt know Mr Miller if he walked info the room this minute I have never seen him Born in Dubuque Hogan was graduated from St Marys high school where he starred in foot ball and basketball in 1922 He attended Campion college at Prairie du Chien Wis for 2 years playing halfback on the football team On a wall of his office are auto graphed pictures of 2 football players Pete Tinsley and Joe Laws formerly of Iowa U of the Green Bay Packers pro team Hogan performed the marriage ceremony for Tinsley and his wife and Laws was best man A picture of Father Flancagan Mickey Rooney and Spencer Tracy and another of the late President Roosevelt also line his office walls Hogan likes to golf bowl fish and garden He golfs at slightly below 100 He bowls an average 175 He fishes whenever the chance presents itself And he gardens a 35 by 65 foo plot which more than provides for Mrs Hogan and their children Michael III age 3 and Sandr Anne 1 Hogan also has 2 children by hi first wife who died in 1936 The are Wayne Paul 18 in school a St Meinards Seminary in Mem ard Ind and Rita 12 who live with her maternal grandmother Mrs Ralph Elhvanger and attend visitation academy here Hogan himself was one of i family of 9 boys and one girl He belongs to the Kiwani Eagles Knights of Columbus Du buque Traveling and Business mens association Catholic church Isaac Walton league and is loca governor of the Moose If Hogan wins this fall a num ber of republicans probably wii have to cross party lines to vot for him They are giving him the cnc over now because they cant de cide what to do about their di lemma It goes against their grain t cross party lines even it the op ponent is more competent tha their own candidate On the other hand to elect Ear G Miller again may be to mak him strong enough to run for gov ernor in 1948 or 1950 stron enough perhaps to upset the re publican applecart 4 Atomic Bomb Deadly or Crewmen
