Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - July 30, 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 COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY JULY 30 1936 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 253 Fleet to Be Kept Abroad European Situation Held Dangerous by Washington By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON CPA It is noteworthy that the state and navy depart ments consider ing the desirabil ity of keeping a squadron of American w a r ships in Euro pean waters sug gest that such a policy may be a necessity on ac count of gener al 1 y disturbed conditions i n that part of the world They do not confine themselves to mentioning conditions in Spain as disturbed They give the impression that Spains disorders simply have re minded them of the threat of simi lar trouble here there and almost trouble or interna tional trouble which will make American sojourners in whatever nay be the afflicted area mightily anxious for an emergency refuge under the Stars and Stripes All of which goes to sbow how apprehensive the Washington gov ernment is in regard to the Euro pean outlook Being Caught Inland An American in an inland Euro pean cily when an insurrection breaks out decidedly is in precari ous circumstances I have tried it in Lisbon Barce lona and Constantinople They are not so bad they are seaports If one cannot get away by train he can get away by boat But I have tried it in Madrid too there the foreigner is com pletely bottled up as effectively as a European would be corked up in Indianapolis if he chanced to be there in the midst of a revolution Madrid Paris Bu dapest Rome Warsaw or Moscow Try to get oat of one of these centers when night It may have been simmering for quite a while well known to local folk but absolutely otherwise to casual tourists unacquainted with the language or that particulai countrys politics Checks Made Worthless The rumpus bursting suddenly is likely to make the visitors trav elers checks worthless His hotel generally is centrally situated where it will get the full benefit of whatever shooting there may be Madrid for example All of touristdom is concentrated on the Puerto del Sol the citys big central square Fighting likewise is cer tain to center on this spot And ma chine gun fire and bombs are no re specters of foreigners Berlin and Paris illustratively seemed to me the last time I was in them as stable as Chicago But so did Madrid the last time I was THERE The state and navy departments evidently are not so sure either as they were previously of the stabil ity of Paris particularly and other inland European cities More Vicious People Hence the demand for a hasty avenue of escape for Americans from Europe Not that the United States gov ernment classes France Germany and the remainder of Europe with Spain The Spanish I know them well my own daughter is Spanish American are a more vicious peo ple when involved in civil war than the northern Europeans American ships in European wa ters are an old story American squadrons were in Eu ropes seas until President Hoovers days President Hoover abolished them as unnecessary Spain begins to give the notion that they are to inter fere but for rescue purposes MITCHELL STIGER RENOMINATED Men on Trial for Murder Attack
