A COPY ASSOCIATES PRESS AND UNITED PRESS LEASED WIRES MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY MARCH THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 134 Lawyers in Court Fight American Bar Association vs Lawyers Guild By CHARLES P STEWART A S H IN GTON CPA To paraphrase a n old saying When law s e r s fall out other folk get their dues The original version is that honest men get their dues when theres a disa greement b e tween malefac tors of one sort or another However this is not to imply that lawyers as a class are IOWA SENATE IN WETDRY FIGHT U S PROTESTS Rebels Wipe Out Battalion of Loyalists TO GERMANY ON scalawags It would not be safe to do so they might sue lor libel They have fallen out bitterly however That is an obvious fact not a risky assertion On the one side is the American Bar association On the opposite hand is the National Lawyers Guild Youth and Age These two groups are chaw ing at each other with extraor dinary ferocity The associations membership consists of the long time recog nized legal pun dits of the profession The guild is a new yet hallowed by age but vigorous with a youth that positively effervesces The association has the advan tage such it is of dignity The guild has the disadvantage of its newness Yet the real advantage may be with the guild Association Handicapped The latter may be and is stern ly rebuked by the association for its impudence but the guilds sole answer is phooey and the guild doesnt care worth The association and the two cents severely kickedin the pants by the cant answer in suffers The American Bar association dates back indefinitely It has his toricassociations The gmld is of postnew deal creation The guild for example supports reorganization of the federal su preme court The association is horrified at the idea Really Conservative I presume it is a fact as guild members assert that the associa tion is conservative Its personnel includes most of the country s pre eminently successful lawyers and this class of practitioners quite centrally represents big business which isnt in the habit of em ploying ultraradicals to handle its legal affairs Guild spokesmen however go farther than to say merely tnat associationists as a body are They charge that they re down right They speak of them as stupid I dont exaggerate They not only have used such terms in conversation hut in radio broad casts They have referred even to a sprinkling of actual legal pros titutes in association ranks Made Sharp Retorts Of course this kind of talk makes the association folk furious Thei handicap is that they cant descend to what they describe as vulgar abuse in answering their if it is criticism to call a PRESS ATTACKS Incident Follows Apology by Hull for Remarks of Mayor LaGuardia WASHINGTON Hull Thursday instructed Ambas sador William E Dodd at Berlin to make vigorous representations to the German foreign office con cerning recent articles appearing in the German press about the United States The secretary of state recently apologized formally to the Ger man embassy here for remarks made by Mayor Fiorello H Lt Guardia of New York in which LaGuardia referred to Chancellor Hitler as a brown shirted fan LaGuardias statements made before the womens section of the American Jewish congress evoked a deluge of criticism from the German press in which LaGuardia not only was attacked but Amer ican institutions and Jewish wom en also were flayed Jewish Woman Writes This press campaign was called to Secretary Hulls attention by Mrs Stephen S Wise wife of the noted Jewish rabbi and chairman of the womens section of the American Jewish congress Her formal letter prompted Sec retary Hull to dispatch immediate orders to Ambassador Dodc to ex press emphatic concern to the German foreign office and to say the United States government amazed at the fierceness of the German press attack It was understood that recent articles published bv Der Angriff a leading Berlin journal were particularly offensive to American officials In responsible quarters it was explained that the secretarys in structions to Dodd did not consti tute a protest but comment which would be calculated to have mucn the same effect Had Insulted Hitler Hull tendered to the German embassy this governments apolo gies for LaGuardias remarks al ter Dr Hans Thomsen counselor of the embassy had protested to the state department that La Guardia had gratuitously insulted Chancellor Hitler In the apology the secretary said LaGuardias remarks did not represent the views of the United States government and expressed regret that any of its citizens should voice such utterances about he head of a nation with which the United States had official re lations The secretary of state had ransmitted a letter
