XXXIX FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY JULY 24 1933 TI113 PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 249 Garner Has Life Easy Catches Bass and Basks in Sun at Texas Home SIGHT FUGITIVES NEAR LUVERNE By HERBERT PLtlMMEK ASHINGTON July 24 Word drifts up from Texas that Vice President Garner ia bass catching and sun shine basking down home far from the storm and strife of the capital Indications are that his ease will be interrupted only once within the next few months Pa Ferguson former governor of Tex aa and husband of the present one on his recent trip to Washington intimated that Cactus Jack will mount the stump some time in the near future and say something to help the cause of repeal of the eighteenth amendment along down in the Lone Star state However thats Pa Fergusons view The vice president hasnt said yet whether he will or not Not So Irksome Garner has given the impression since March 4 that after all the detachment from governmental af faira that is necessarily the lot of the vice president is not so irksome to him One rather imagines he is enjoy ing it Much was said and everybody speculated as to how the ruddy faced energetic Texan would react to the vice presidency About every one agreed that he would find it dif ficult to settle down in his new job after the exceedingly active life he had led in the house especially dur ing the last two yeara when he was speaker Absent Afternoons But it wasnt long before it was noticed that the vice president was absent from the senate chamber and Jils office on

first stop always was the peanu stand where everyone in the part loaded up From there they woul go to a box near home plate alon the first base line Stopping Out Mr Garner has found other way to roam on a pleasant afternoon Hia physical presence at aenat sessions all1 the time is not neces sary As a matter of fact no vie president has ever attempted to b religious in his attendance For on thing he can do nothing but sit an listen The only time he speaks when he rules on some point of par liamentary procedure So usually the vice president des ignatca some senator to occupy th presidents chair when he gets tirec Sometimes as many aa half a doze senators will preside during one ternoon If the necessity for his presence i the chamber arises he Is alwa available Even If Garner were his box at a ball game he could b reached and be at the capital with 15 minutes Grain Trade Warned to Put House in Order EEKSAYS FARM ADMINISTRATION S DISPLEASED Post Expects New Records Chicago Trading Dies to
