Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 28, 1939, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME MARLON E R HIST HEM 4 AfJ r OF IOWA COUP oes MASON BRIGHTlSPOT HOME EDITION VOL XLV THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS ASSOCIATED PRESS AND UNITED PRESS FULL LEASED WIRES NEWS j Garner Plans to Go Home Middle of June WASHINGTON Adjournment up VL President Garner who generally knows more about what congress is go ing to do than congress is making his per sonal plans to go home be tween the 10th and 20th of June The adminis tration is get ting boll wee vils in its hair from the cotton T i 1 problem Paul Mallon Not all Agri culture Secretary W a 1 1 a u es bright young men are following him in his apparent switch to a cotton export subsidy system An inside report prepared by one of his cotton experts is apparently unmindful of the fact that Mr Roosevelt himself recently said the export subsidy was to be pre ferred over the Smith loan plan because it would cost less Tliis report calls the plan an ar tificial device even of doubtful temporary advantage and certain to leave in Us wake a trail of eco nomic destruction it would says the report from within Mr Wal laces own department eliminate a free market destroy merchan dizing organizations and the fu ture contracts system Further it would force diversion of hedge in surance business to foreign mar kets and ultimately leave the United States without a voice in determining the price of our cot ton This price is loo costly to pay says the report still unmindful of Mr Roosevelts favor toward it as a measure of economy Subsidy Wallace Idea There jsviio question but what a tthiougH Ttus7 timiSit remariaifea from a third party who has served before m the same capacity Edward ONeal head of the Farm Bureau federa Mr ONeal went to see the president with the plan and an nounced it in the white house lobby as he came out This is especially interesting be cause Mr Wallace is far out on the opposite limb Last September he made a speech at Fort Worth in which he opposed the export sub sidy saying unlike wheat an out right export subsidy does not ap pear to be called for in the case of To make cotton matters further embarrassing Mr Wallace is working for export subsidy while Mr Morgenthau is penalizing tlis Germans 25 per cent in tariff duties for using such a system But the depth of the dilemma lies in the fact that it the alternative pro posal the Smith program for loans is allowed to prevail ap propriations for the agriculture department will have to be hiked above the current unprecedented appropriations bill level The hike will be at least 550000000 per haps 5180000000 to 5220000000 more depending on what estimate vou take Thus Mr Wallace with 11000 000 bales of excess cotton on his hands seems to be in as bad or worse a fix than the Hoover farm board it isthe agriculture department appropriation billcalls for 5500000000 soil conservation gratuities parity

1258 679 Neutrality Gang Acts The neutrality gang in the sen ate is going to make the immediate future very unpleasant for Mi Roosevelt through his proxy Chairman Pittman The Borah radio speech and the Thomas Utah local protest was the start of their contest against the Pittman plan to sel everything including munitions on a cashandcarry basis in war times The issue will get down to the simple proposition of whether the United States wants to plan hew to help Britain and France in the next war or remain neutral The Pittman adherents including the white house are using the cur rently hot antinazi sentiment of the country to furnish the motive power behind their plan Despite this advantage gained by apt tim ing they face embarrassing pros pects because France lately ha not been living

Solicitor Harvey J Bryant as to whether persons claiming to rep resent some of the candidates could check the count Election judges at the court house refused to go on while one person with a pad checked the votes as they were being called while several others stood about watching The city solicitor ruled that the judges were sworn and were en titled to proceed with the count without being disturbed All spectators in the eight vot ing places were then ordered out of the rooms where the counting took place Even representatives of the press awaiting election re turns wereincluded in the order No Party Designation The law provides that there may be three persons at the polls while the vote is being counted if they are the officially designated representatives of a political par ty said Mr Bryant In this in stance there was no one desig nated by a political party These people at the polls ol course meant no harm but hey were allegedly disturbing the count and the functions of the election boards Objections were raised in only two precincts but we made the ruling uniform throughout all precincts Our group had made arrange ments o check the vote in each 1 precinct chiefly for the purpose of ascertaining whether the Peoples j ticket was being voted straight said C M Groman attorney for I the Peoples Ticket candidates At McKinlcy First The first objection was made at the
