Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 29, 1928, Mason City, Iowa I MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE FRIDAY JUNE 29 1928 FIVE on j Vacation Fight on Farm Relief Would Have Been Bad Writer Says Opposition of Reed to Wilson During War Thot to Have Hurt Missourians Chances at Conventiqn By W EARL HALL GlobeGazetle Managing Editor TTOLTSTON Texas June of the major argument has flown from H this convention as these lines are written to agreed upon a One the very what Is meant when a southerner I says as ha often does Our Negroes know their It means that col ored people are servants nothing more only a shade or two about cattle and horses They have no rights and surprisingly few privileges They dont associate with whites ex cept to brush their clothes or shine their shoes Jim Crow cars are in use universally here and In tho conven tion hall the concession was made of setting aside a small section not well situated for the colored folk And the amazing fact is Negroes are perfectly happy with their posi tion in the scheme of society They dont aspire to better things Nk Stops Say Flyers Ready for Round Trip Transcontinental Hop I1L1U11 upon and all bufthe very most unreasonable have conceded that it have been bad business indeed for the great democratic party to quarrel about such things as farm relief or prohibition But theres one question that perhaps never will be answered Did the agricultural demonstration Tuesday night In connection with Claude Bowers kevnote address break at the scheduled time school of thot Insists that the directions called for the upnsmg at c lose of

demonstration led by North Dakotas delegation and par ticipated in by every other state hav ing one delegate young and spry enough to carry the state banner had the appearance of being about as spon taneous and impromptu as the key icters address which had been in the hands ot the printers for two weeks before tho convention Tam many In the role of farm savior hasn t been entirely convincing even to southern democracy which just about whistled itself out of courasa Plibne Its hard to tell just how far Jim Reed of Missouri might have got in this convention if two things were not true of him Ho opposed Woodrow Wilsons every move back in war time and thereafter and he was too closely associated with Henry Ford in his at tacks on Jews That Wilson stands higher in parly councils today than he did in 1020 or 1924 isnt to be doubted Heed himself dncsnt doubt it And Al Smiths primary demand upon his runninsmate has been that he be a help rather than a hindrance in carrying New York state and city The Jewish voto is a highly conse quential factor in the situation and Smiths friends have been reluctant to court disfavor ill these quarters by nominating a man who has not been considered friendly to the Jews The convention proper would have turned to Keod far more readily than to Hob inson or anybody else it there had been a gesture In that direction from headquarters This isnt saying o course that Reed would have accepted second place honors In fact he has said repeatedly that it was the presi dency or nothing One Curtis of Kan sas it will be recalled was saying the same thing two short weeks ago The Karlsan didnt meant It as events have proved alongside Gov Henry Allen of Kansas whose proximity to Hoover headquar ters and to me supplied more than one live tip This year my nextseat neighbor is one M R Ridley oE Ox ford Kngland who Is In this country as a representative of the great uni versity there In a purely incidental way he is reporting on the convention for a paper at Oxford He expressed amazement at some phases of the con vention on the opening night The nearest approach to this in my he said would bo for the prime minister to come into a city and stage a political rally Party con ventions of a national scope are not known Democrats like their demonstra lions The two Wednesday afternoon in connection with Senator Joe Rob insons plea for religious tolerance commonly regarded as the first nomln atlng speech for Al Smith were prob ably greater In toto than the one Tues day night for the promise of agricu tural relief After North Carolina and severe other states which normally would no be found in tho Smith lists had joine the parade of states attention wi riveted on the Alabama banner A tho a fist fight was staged In an fort to draw that banner Into the demonstration the Heflindominated delegation remained adamant SANTA ANA nights ot the air who attempt trans ceanie flights are hardly more am itious than two Pacific coast flyers Charles Rochevllle and Lieut K C Hawkins are planning a round trip y air across the United States This Is to be no ordinary flight lowever for the two aviators plan to rop their cards at New York and re urn to San Diego their starting point without landing anywhere en oute Twice across the continent and no stopovers Both men have had experience in ongrdistanca or duration flying Hawkins as a navy pilot and Roche ville as a member of the Albatross crew who triedfour times In that big trlengined plane to reach a new dura tion record Hawkins with lil Encanto was one who started along the Oakland run way for Honolulu In the Dole race His heavily loaded plane swerved iowever and did not take off For this twiceacrossthecontlnent race tlie flyers plan to use a mono plane of Rochevilles design using a single motor and carrying COO gallons of gasoline This plane resembles the Zenth Albatross which carried three en gines On the journey east from San Diego naval air station field the pair plan to follow a southern route cum ing west they will fly by way ot Chi cago awl Denver The trip planned would keep the flyers In the air at least 60 hours which not only would take them twice across the continent but would bring them the worlds endurance record to hold the solid south behind Al Smith and to make an appeal for sup port from the agricultural middle west Very possibly too this mention by name of the farm relief bill was in the nature of a feeler for the platform committee which was in session in the library building nearby at the time the Robinson address was being made He heralded the absence of a wet plank In the platform too ous hy their absence at this conven tion is Calo Sells of Fort Worth Judge Sells an alumnus of Cornel college liiis been a power in Texa democracy for
