Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 7, 1935, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THt NfWSPAPtR THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLI FIVE CENTS A COW ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY MARCH 71935 THIS PAPER CONSISTS or TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 125 Senate Not So Sensitive Members No Longer Rage When Body Is Attacked By HERBERT FLUMMER ASHINGTON March 7 CSV During the las session of con gress administra tion leaders in the senate were extremely sensi live when sub jected to crit icism either by the press or in dividuals on the way that body did business The familiar charge that con gress merely had become a rub ber stamp for t h e president brought immediate and deep re sentment Time and again individual senators arose to denounce such In sinuations For some reason these senators have not displayed such leap ing to the defense of that name thus far in the present con gress Following defeat of the world court protocols and more recently the smashing blow delivered the ad ministrations work relief proposal bitter words of denunciation as well as praise rained onsenators heads The Wild House Probably the silence and reluc tance of these past defenders of the senate to spring into action now and some will admit it privately lies in the fact the senate is coming to be recognized as the chief trouble maker in Washington After the elections of last Novem ber the cry immediately went up that the wild house of representa tives would be the body to cause sleepless nights for the administra tion in the seventyfourth congress Senators it was pointed out elected for six years could be counted on o stop the house bandwagon and the day for the president What liis happened Its been the senatesvHerethisradical movements Its the senate where small groups have set up circles of con trol Possible Keasons Some lay the blame on the fact that senators now are elected di rectly by the people and not by state legislatures as originally provided by the constitution Others attribute the rise of the bloc system such as the progres sives bdth of the republican and democratic variety as the reason Another explanation is that the growth of sectional and regional in terests aided and abetted by power ful lobbies have broken down the method of general policies by which party lines were kept intact It is argued this situation has brought about scenes of individual and group skirmishes in the senate on impor tant issues displacing the onetime grand battle between the rallied forces of the two major parties Perhaps none of these is the real explanation but whatever the cause the existing situation is anything but a comfort to the administration Clinton Man Falls From Boat Never
