Southern Democratic con servatives the Eisenhower ad ministration Thursday won smashing House approval of its emergency unemployment relief program By a rollcall vote of 223165 the House rejected a IVibilliondollar Democratic leadership plan which critics called an outright dole in favor of a 600milliondol lar program backed by President Eisenhower It then voted 37017 to adopt the Eisenhower plan and send it to the Senate OK THE CRUCIAL test to sub stitute the administration plan for the Democratic proposal 60 Democrats joined 163 Republi cans to outvote 148 Democrats 17 Republicans The substitution motion was made by a Democrat Rep Her long of Florida who said the GOP administration bill would provide a temporary extension of jobles pay benefits in a sound way without making a complete mockery of the entire unemploy ment compensation program Herlongs move climaxed two days of heated debate during which the bill backed by Demo cratic leaders was denounced by Southern Democrats as well as by Republicans THIS BILL drafted by the House Ways Means Commit tee would have provided 16 weeks of jobless pay at state rates to virtually all unemployed including those not covered by jobless insurance programs as well as covered workers who have exhausted their benefits The federal government would have footed the bill The Democratic measure was denounced by opponents as a handout and a dole Rep Howard W Smith DVa called it pure unadulterated undisguised un abridged and socialof staff ism President The administration bill adopted by the House would provide a 50 per cent extension of benefits but only to workers who have ex hausted their rights under pres ent federalstate programs In most states this would mean a 13week extension of payments THE GOVERNMENT would put up the money but would be repaid by the states after four years State participation would be voluntary and the program would expire April 1 1959 Iowas congressional delegation was split on the voting Oppos ing the substitute bill were Mer Goad Iowas only Democrat in the House and Paul Cunning ON TAX ISSUE GOP Tosses New Blast at Loveless DES MOINES tfhState Re publican Chairman L L Jurge meyer accused Gov Herschel Loveless Friday of trying to mislead the voters hy creating the impression he never has advocated any tax increases Jurgemeyer told a news con ference he is confident the Re publican candidate will defeat the Democratic governor in the general election next fall A RECENT speech by Love less at Council Bluffs drew much of Jurgemeyers fire In the address Loveless had said that because of his veto of the Legislatures tax bill which let the sales tax rate fall back from per cent lowans are better off during the cur rent recession because they have about 20 million dollars more to spend Here is a man who went on record during the last legisla tive session in favor of tax in creases and yet today he pre sents a face to the people that he is not in favor of tax in creases is the worst one is not needed Jurgemeyer said HE DECLARED that failing to increase state revenues would be false economy and added We are going to have to raise revenue in Iowa to take care of the needs of the state government The needs of the state come ahead of the needs of the party Loveless Jurgemeyer is saddled with proposed tax increases by his candidates that doesnt mean I have to

William Robinson was based ona family feud of long standing was contained in an open letter to Earl Hall editor of the Mason Cfty GlobeGazette current issue of the local newspaper The piece was signed by Dwright VI Purcell Publisher The letter was prompted by a news story carried by theGlobe Gazette under the Gross GivenSupport of Hampton Newspaper Ancient Feud Recalled There was an assumption in that news item that strained re lations between the late Publisher TomWPurcell and the late TJB Robinson former 3rd District Representative were reflected in the Chronicles present course of action Such is not the case Purcell stated in his open letter Alle gations of an ancient feud are entirely unfounded and with out fact to the best of my knowl edge and belief IF ANY differences ever exist ed they are unknown to the pres ent generation and had nothing to do with the Chronicles posi OSAGE PARLEY The Rev Sam LentersHeads Church Group OSAGE Rev Sam Len ters Sioux City is the new mod erator of

warrants at Honolulu Hawaii after they ignored a court order not to sail to Eniwetok Island to protest US Hbomb tests The Coast Guard stopped them two miles out to sea and towed them to jail Mrs Enid Robinson are of her own making Use of the terms misunder standing and bygones is set down by Purcell as hollow mock ery of the truth and a thinly veiled effort by the writer of the article and Mrs Robinson to make an excuse for the Chron icles support of Mr Gross We consider the reference to two men who have passed away and who cannot defend them selves as cheap political subter fuge which friends of both re sent the Hampton publishers letter stated NEITHER ONE of them would condone such action and their hundreds of friends throughout the county and district will no1 approve it either Restating the sentiments con tained in the Chronicle editoria of the previous week the body o which was reprinted by the Globe Gazette in its previous front page story Purcell said we suppor H R Gross because we believe he is the most capable candidate in the field Contradicting the claim tha there had been an attempt on he part to end the ancient quar rel Purcell wrote Mrs Robinson knows why we support H R Gross and sh knows that it is not due to an grievance The differences between th Chronicle and Mrs Robinson Purcell observed are of he own making and are recent THE SUBJECT of the so called strained family relations said Mrs Robinson in com menting on the Chronicles ope letter isnt changed one iota b anything either of us say at thi time What really matters is that th publisher of
