Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 13, 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 ASSOCIATED PRESS ABASED WlJSE SBKVJCB MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY JUNE THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 212 Will Attack Roosevelt Republicans Drive to Be Directed at New Deal Head By CHARLES P STEWART republicans campaign policy evidently is to be one of attacks upon President Roose velts way of running things rather tlian a fight for any particular con structive program of their own This is assuming that Senator Frederick Steiwer in his keynote speech at the Cleveland convention and Representative Bertrand H Sneil in his address at the conven tions permanent chairman correctly outlined the G O plans Pre sumably they did Convention key noters and permanent chairmen us ually know what they are talking about Neither Steiwer nor Snell suggest ed much as to what the republicans if they win propose to do Both dwelt upon what their party pro poses to undo that has been done under the Roosevelt administra tion Roosevcltian Methods It was not so much the new deal that the two G 0 P spokesmen criticized it was the Rooseveltian method of doing the dealing Steiwer especially said that at first he thought rather well of some details of the present white house tenants general scheme to lift the depression and supported them But when the president began put ting his system in operation it turned out the keynoter charged to be altogether different from what he or anyone else except a few brain trusters had expected It was Roosevelt personally whom Steiwer and Snel alike blamed for effecting what they de scribed as a very radical change in the American form of government Had No Idea To be sure congress voted to him the authority under which he did it but congress as remarked by Steiwer who admits that he voted for several new deal measures had no idea of what use he was about to make of the powers it conferred on him Snell goes so far as to put it that he seduced the legislative branch by billions in pork barrel Of course the permanent chair man didnt mean to imply that Steiwer was Steiwer sim ply was deceived The folk Snell meant to refer to as having been se duced were members of the demo cratic majority on Capitol Eyes Supreme Court And now added the chairman the chief executive casts a calculating pye upon the federal suprtme court which has knocked out so much of his legislation as un constitutional Anyway Steiwer and Snell agreed that Roosevelt is a dictator They appealed to the electorate to get rid of him next November be fore he becomes tc firmly intrench ed ever to dislodge and let a re publican regime restore to the coun try the form of government it en joyed until he landed in office This cant exactly be called con structive Its destructive of what we have now in order to have again what we had formerly Plans for Reconstruction And will we be back where we ADMITS COUNCIL BLUFFS KILLING were originally even if the republi cans do win Grant for the sake of argument that Roosevelt is a dictator It doesnt follow however that the folk who overthrow him will be able to reestablish just what ex jtcd until he dictated them out of it To the contrary revolutions nev er go So it would be interesting to know what the republicans plan in the way of reconstruction after they get through with the destructive part of their that they succeed at it EXCONVICT 19 SAYS HE ROBBED AND SHOT 10WAN Youth Arrested
