HOME EDITION VOL XL FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY JUNE 28 1934 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO Tour Will Be Dignified Ballyhoo Not to Be Overdone in Trip of Fletcher By HERBERT PLUMMEB ASHINGTON June 28 The forthcoming tour of the coun try planned by Henry P Fletch er new chair man of the re publican national committee will tie conducted on a dignified plane Therell be a certain amount of ballyhoo of course in an at tempt to get out the crowds in the cities where he makes a speech but it wont be overdone The truth of the matter is the whole thing is to be very informal Outside of the scheduled address in Jackson Mich on July 7 commem orating the eightieth anniversary of the founding of the republican par ty no definite plans are in sight at present Fletcher himself isnt certain where he will go next He has no elaborate itinerary mapped out Hell visit key cities as time ant opportunity permit The underlying purpose of his proposed tour is not so much t make speeches as to meet politica leaders in various parts of the coun try and let them see him Dny After Election He didnt get to Chicago until the day after he was elected chairman Many members of the national com mittee left the city for their homes the night before his arrival Its to make personal contact with these and other republican leaders throughout the country which prompted him to decide to go trav As one republican official states it The boys out in the country know Henry principally for his rept titation as a diplomat They want to see what he lookslike as a poli tician Then too there is feeling on the part of many in the party that Fletchers appearance in certain the far in removing any remaining dissatisfaction that an eastern was chosen to head the committee Despite suggestions republican headquarters should be moved to Chicago for better contact with the in the coming congressional and 1936 presidential campaigns it definitely has been decided to keep the main offices in Washington Branch headquarters will be set up in Chicago SpellBinding Out In the few weeks the white haired handsome has been chairman of the commit tee Fletcher has given no indica tion of injecting high pressure or spellbinding tactics in his conduct of the job It seems his idea of being nation al chairman of the committee is to play the role of the silent behind thescenes organizer and let others shoot off the fireworks Ballyhoo i distasteful to him as ib the old idea that the chairman is the partys front Perhaps his observation on a re mark once made by Charles G Dawes best illustrates Fletchers modus operand Dawes when am bassador to England remarked that diplomacy was easy on the brains but hell on the feet When Fletch er was asked his reactions he re plied It all depends upon which you use P MIT L E D Iowa Heat Wave Claims Third Victim in Death KIOTS INCREASE uAcnupirv IIMI Poland Goal 59 COMMUNITIES BLOCK MILWAUKEE
