Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 29, 1935, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLI FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY JUNE 29 1935 SECTION ONE THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS NO 222 Looks for 4 Tickets Venable Says 1936 Battle Will Be Wide Open By CHARLES 1 STEWART Central Press Stall Writer ASHINGTON June have been plent of predictions o a triangular pres idential f i g h next year Now Executive Secre tary Earl Ven able of the na tional republican c o n g r e ssional committee tenta tively suggest that it may be quadrangular Among 1 a w makers of vari ous political com plexions on cap itol hill I find a considerable scattering who incline to think that Secretary Venables guess is not a very wild one Such an alignment apparently would be about like this 1 A Rooseveltian new deal demo cratic ticket 2 A conservative democratic ticket similar to the Palmer and Sucker ticket named in 1896 more to help McKinley against Bryan without admitting it than with any hope of victory 3 An orthodox republican ticket 4 A ticket to suit radicals for whom the new deal is insufficiently to the leftward Republican Hopes Secretary Venables theory is that ticket No 2 supposing it would draw exclusively from new deal strength and that ticket No 4 would draw much more heavily from Rooseveltian than from G 0 P strength The reeretary doesnt contend that this would be likely to give republicanism a majority over all le does surmise that it might give a plurality to republicanism Which would not necessarily mean victory for the G O Ps presidential can didate the winner has to have an outright majority in the electoral the final decision into congress hands Still even that would give the re publican aspirant a final lookin Secretary Venable prophesies what Executive Secretary Buck Hay den of the democratic congresional committee doesnt admit that there will be important G O P gains in the seventyfifth congress Anyway Secretary Venable views the outlook with some complacency Queer Combinations There is indeed a political ele ment which wonders whether tick ets Nos 2 and 3 conservative democrats and orthodox republi cans could not be combined to maximum advantage getting an ac tual majority at the polls over new dealers and the mavericks Active politicians are exceeding ly chary of expressing themselves Turn to Page 2 Column LEWIS CALLS SOFT COAL STRIKE Mason Cityan Convicted of Minnesota Murder MAN WHO
