Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 26, 1935, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLI MVE CENTS A ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY JUNE 26 1935 SECTION ONE THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS NO 219 Spending on Relief Slow Republicans Claim Funds Saved for Campaign By CHARLES P STEWART Central Press Staff Writer ASHINGTON June are discussed and discussed a n discussed for a start on the ex penditure of presiden Roosevelts 488 million dollar re coveryrelief fund the expen d i t u r e s don start somehow The republican e x p lanation that the admin istration deliber ately is stalling with a view to keeping the bulk of the 4880 millions intact until the eye of the 1936 campaign then re leasing it in a perfect flood which it expects according to G 0 P spokesmen to sweep it into office again in November Another surmise is that adminis trationists are afraid to start spend ing lest republican strategy succeed in putting an immediate stop to it pending a long court fight over con stitutionality The republican charge that the administration regards its 4880 mil lions as a campaign fund which it prefers to hang on to until it can be utilized most effectively of course is unprovable Circumstantial Evidence In support of the guess that it fears legal trouble when it does be gin spending there is a certain amount of circumstantial evidence Many constitutional authorities have insisted all along that when ever congress votes a sum of money to the president to spend it must specify exactly how and for what he is to spend the 4880 mil lions were voted to him to do any thing he sees fit with So long as he spends none of it the issue isnt ripe for a test but as soon as he starts spending there can be a showdown Presumably the method of tying up the program would be for some taxpayer to seek a federal court re straining order against further ex penditures Dictatorial Proceeding Should he obtain one it would be a dictatorial looking proceeding for the administration to disregard it An appeal would be taken it is a foregone conclusion but there would be a deadlock in the meantime Be sides executive officialdom is charv of the United States supreme court ever since the court tossed NRA practically into the discard It goes almost without
