Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - July 21, 1939, Mason City, Iowa 4 NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME HAflLON R 1ST MEM ART Of JOVV4 COUP DCS It U THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH JOWANS NEIGHBORS 11 G O P Eagerly Takes Embargo Responsibility WASHINGTON Somebodys wrong Mr Roosevelt jockeyed the republicans around upon the white house carpet to make them take a responsibility that was not en tirely theirs for defeat of his proposal to sup port Britain and France with a promise of arms As the fully recorded press accounts showed he found the re publicans eage to accept th gage It was on Paul Malion of those rar instances in demoeracy when both sides wer so sure of national support the were willing to agree in advanc to face the country on a clear cu issue The reason the republican are so sure was set forth by on who attended the conference i something like the following chat ty simple language We will make him run an rude on this issue if he ever dare it to the country Everyone can now see it boils down to a simple Hoosevelts proposal to repeal th arms embargo He wants it re pealed admittedly because h wants to ship arms to Britain an France in event of a Europea war Even he himself says he want in advance the power to ship s as to bolster the FrancoBritis diplomatic position against Ger many and Italy That means intervention an intervention means war It woul give Britain and France in ad vance the power to draw us int if they decide to have on fop their own purposes This country does not wan war will not pledge itself in ad Vance to war MASON CITY

Roosevelt has been misled fa some sentiment in the east Can Blame Senators Inner technical aspects of th presidents cocksureness on thi other side were outlined in a les chatty way but with equal fore by an official capable of knowing them He says in effect The president is in a periec political position Everv timi something happens in Europt from now on he can blame it on the not the republicans His hand in international affairs has been weakened by the sen ates action He has placed the re sponsibility where it lies If our information as to wha is coming in Europe is correct each coming crisis will show the i people here the mistake that is being made by the senate in not supporting the democracies to the utmost The president may have made some mistakes in his not in politics He knows what he is doing In case coming events fail to justify his position he can just let the issue rest How can he lose this maneuvering has pushed the willing republicans up front in the neutrality dispute they actually have only 23 votes in the senate which is less than onefourth of the total A major share of the credit for Mr Roose velts defeat must therefore go to his own democrats in the back ground They number 69 and he could have won if he could have gotten 49 of them to support him 0 Defeat With Grace Some who attended the presi dents powwow on neutrality thought he took his defeat with ex ceptional grace State Secretary Hull slumped down in a chair at the end as if dejected but not FDR He started talking about other pleasant things and had everyone in a good humor before his

PARK UR President Roosevelt said Friday that refusal of the senate to act at this session on neutrality has killed off a nice little business boom and will have an adverse economic effect until next January Mr Roosevelt speaking at a press conference again empha sized that full responsibility for refusal to revise the neutrality law must be accepted by the sen ate The senate he said is gam bling against the possibility of war this year and the result of its re fusal to actwill have an adverse economic effect Tells of Conversation The president described a con versation he had with a promin ent businessman this week The businessman he said discussed the effect the senate postponement may have on business and they concluded that the postponement probably cut short a nice boom With the international situation and its effects on this country highly uncertain the president said businessmen will hesitate to make commitments because they can have noidea of what form a neutrality bill will take congress acts on the issue when it meets again next January Accepting the fact that the sen ate will not act Mr Roosevelt said all he can do now is pray that there will not be another Seriouscrisis in Europe before again CjfeSK tarntiycot congress for a sion pointing out that other crises have come and gone without de veloping actual war Tells of Information But he said from every capital in Europe without exception this government has received evidence of preparations being made for an eventuality that those capitals believe to be fairly close The preparations he said appear to be moving at a fast rate The presi dent gave no indication that he plans to take the issue of neu trality to the country There cant be any immediate issue before the country he said because groups iri the senate have precluded any action until next Tanuary He noted that at his conference with democratic and republican senate leaders this week he was informed that 100 per cent of sen ate republicans and about one ihird of the senate democrats would support the movement to prevent a vote on neutrality Un Jer senate rules he said such a arge group could prevent action and those groups must accept full responsibility for their decision Reviews Conference Seated in his study at his Hyde Park estate Mr Roosevelt re viewed at some length the white louse conference The keystone of he neutrality program is repeal the provision for arms cm cargoes against belligerents and Mr Roosevelt confirmed news paper stories which quoted him as elling the conferees that he want ed the neutrality revision to give lim ammunition to fire another hot in the cause of world peace He said however that stories hat the conference was bitter vere made out of whole cloth There was only one disagreement during the conference he said and hat came when Senator William S Borah R veteran iso ationist intimated very clearly hat his information from Europe vas better than the information
