IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION I MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY MARCH 25 1933 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OK TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 147 Roosevelt Politician Thats Why He Likes Advice of Young Intellectuals By CHARLES P STEWART WASHINGTON March 25 CPA gradually is becoming appar ent to President Roosevelts new associates in Washington what the New Yorker gets from members of the college pro fessorial corps he has built up around him that he finds lacking when turns for advice to even the ablest and most disin terested of pub lic men The Moleys and T u g w e 11s whom he con sults are entire ly uninfluenced by political con siderations The president himself does not leave politics out lo Raymond the contrary the more Capitol Hill gets to know him the more its re pect for him grows as one of the keenest politicians who ever occu pied the white house And this is just the point His Own Politician He does not so much need politi cal suggestions he can evolve his own What he does need is an oc casional hint from some he trusts who sees situations from an angle altogether different from his personal angle which he real izes may be a trifle biased or from the angle of any other individual who is lihely to be biased similarly The Moleys and the Tugwells are wholly outside politics Secretary of Agriculture Wallace is much in their class and it has been noticed too that the president is exceptionally respectful of the ideas he decidedly more so than he is of those put forward by persons of far longer experience Seeretarydf the Treasury Woodln also ia entirely beyond the political periphery and the chief has given him a practically free hand throughout the critical period which began with his very entrance into office Budget Director Burget Director Lewis W Doug las is another assistant whom the president may reasonably be be lieved to have chosen largely be cause of his indifference to politics at least of national proportions He picked Douglas il is true from a political position that of Arizonas lone representative but the southwesterner Is essentially the type of a somewhat bookish young who was drawn into politics more or less by accident and the possession of considerable means which really practical pol iticians wanted to enlist in their campaign activities Public office as his acquaintances in congress are perfectly aware did not weigh with him He has to he sure the instinct of service highly developed with little concern whether or not he is rewarded for it making him a particularly desirable candidate for the thankless office into which the new national executive im pressed him May Develop It That the Moleys and Tugwells as well as young Secretary Wallace will not develop the political com plex now that they are in the at mosphene perhaps ia no certainty at all events it is not noticeable in themthus far Functionaries like Secretaries Hull Dern Swanson Tckles and Jioper Postmaster General Farley Attorney General Cummings and perhaps Mra Secretary of Labor Perkins naturally already have it to the nth power not at all to their discredit but they are pro fessionals IGNORE WALLACE PLEA FOR SPEED France Wants to Discuss Debts Hull Not

peddlers WASHINGTON March 25 Secretary Hull told today that he could not say at the ovuvo would discuss war debts with na tions which have defaulted In answer to inquiries the secre tary of stato said As to the governments that are in default or have deferred their payments on the intergovernmental debts I cannot say at the present time that we would sit in with thos2 governments in future discussions of their debts The statement was made only a short time after announcement had been made in Paris that the new French ambassador would begin discussions of war debts immedia tely on his

by Secretary Wal lace for speed the senate agricul ture committee decided today to continue hearings on the adminis tration farm bill next week and prospects were that it would not be reported to the senate before Thursday at the earliest The decision of the committee was reached after Wallace in open session reasserted for the adminis tration an insistence that its orig inal farm relief measure be passed unchanged Nothing less will suffice he told the committee detailing his views of the farm emergency and emphasizing that there could be no delay if any good was to be done this year Opposed to Substitute He opposed definitely the substi tute bill which Senator Smith D S chairman of the commit tee put forward In place of the bill which the house passed overwhelm ingly early this week

industrial depression Contrast to Simpson His words were in outright con trast with the testimony of the wit ness who immediately preceded him John A Simpson president of the national farmers union
