could have caused no greater excitement among the new deal picture cards had he personally tossed highly scented bombs into their homes As you know his seeming infer ence that no one but Roosevelt is competent to be president was il lustrated by the magazine with pictures of Garner Hull Farley Wallace and four republicans Now no one cares what Ickes may stir up against the republi cans least of all the republicans but Mr Ickes must sit at table with Garner Hull Farley and Wallace for at least 18 months something falls on his foot in the interim This may explain why he raised such an ado with the editors of the inagazlhe for translating his gen eral observation into specific pic tures Blast at Mr Ickes How deep it may have cut is hinted by an incident A few days after his article a topnotch new weekly magazine here The Sena tor edited in a friendly humor ous proRoosevelt and new deal vein by Harry Newman he got a friendly personal letter from Mr Roosevelt for the first issue ap peared with a shotgun editorial blast at Mr Ickes It was loaded with the same kind of personal buckshot that the interior secre tary employs against those who do not agree with him The New Yorker style of the ad ministrationencouraged magazine was shunted aside for a first page editorial in boldfaced type start ing Harold Ickes has deservedly become the greatest pain in the neck in the United States He has committed more mean and inex cusable little acts and fewer big ones than any man record in the last six years From this restrained start the editorial led up to what the editor really thinks of Ickes and it con eluded on a high note by calling him Hokum Hal the Harlequin Humbug The editorial did not mention the Look article but argued that Roosevelt had a right to determine whether he wanted a third term but that he should not be handi capped with such an advocate as Ickes WILL BE ASKED FOR LOCAL PROJECT Will Use Federal Aid Main Route Through Here Is Considered Circulation of

Clyde Herrings suggestion that he call a special ession of the legislature until he can study the proposal in detail Senator Herring issued a state ment Monday urging Die Iowa governor to call the legislature into session for one day to enact a law which would qualify Iowa to obtain federal aid in caring for dependent children The act under consideration by the senate would increase federal participation in benefits to chil dren from 33 13 to 50 per cent Herring charged that the cal lous cruel neglect of the legisla Tire had deprived Iowa of thai assistance Herrings statement part United States 2 510 per cent of children undei the age of IB are receiving aid It is estimated that there are perhaps 17000 dependent children within the slate of Iowa and the average grant to children in states surrounding Iowa is S12 a month While perhaps a substantial pei cent of these dependent Iowa chil dren could bo maintained for less than it can be seen that by its neglect of these Iowa children the last state legislature lias deprived them of from one million to one and onequarter million dollars of federal aid I suggest that the governorvcal the legislature back for one day enact a law that will permit Iowa to obtain this help for its depend ent homeless children the legisla ture to contribute its mileage and pay to some worthy state fund as an indication of their desire to

presidential election redicted Tuesday President Roosevelt would decline to become candidate for a third term At the same time in a speech irepared for delivery before the Business and Professional Wom ns Republican club of Massachu etls the former Kansas governor harply criticized new deal eco nomics and those who urge the president to run again in 1940 We are in the sixth year of extraordinary government spcndingtosave policy Lan don asserted yet discourage ment and chronic unemploy ment are increasing This in deed is tile Roosevelt depres sion The citizens who are proposing and urging a third term for Presi dent Hoosevelt will be marked by the future historian as bringing disaster to therepublic if they succeed in their unworthy ends But there are enough Ameri cans whose hearts are sound to stop them Here indeed the re public has a rendezvous with des tiny However I dont believe any man with the exaltation and Ihe sense of public senice and patrio tism that comes from the high office of the presidency accede to such demands Stresses Statesmanship The president worthy the trust reposed in him by his tal low citizens will disdain this suggestionmade to him by meaner souls J Landon said the question of which party wins the next elec tion is not as important as the type of statesmanship we may ex pect from the next president The fantastic financial theories of the new deal which have proven a failure in achieving recovery must not be permitted to remain unchecked or to become a per manent part of our national life We must get n foundation for a sound recovery and getting our people back to work Must Apply Brakes Then the problem of the next republican president may well be preventing normal healthy recov ery from turning into a runaway boom At the risk of his very repu tation he must be prepared to put on the brakes in time and if he fails we will be facing the truly desperate situation of another bust And if that happens God pity us all Already the dangerous idea is gaming credence that we can elect anyone wo nominate That idea has gotten not only the republi can party but the country into difficulty in times past In fact we are paying today both as a party and as a country because we fell from that idea too many times and unfortunately it vras correct as far as winning the elec tion went Need Unified Party Of course under our way of doing things the new chief execu tive must have a unified party behind htm Certainly this is not true today of the democratic party which is torn to pieces not only by the presidents methods and policies but by threats of a third term Why should a young resource ful people like us accept the gates were being forced rooms at smaller hotels view of growth and over1 Landon that our days
