Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - May 7, 1935, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH 10WANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLI FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED W1KE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY MAY 7 1935 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO IT Wants All of Program F Rs Demand to Meet Difficulty in Senate By HERBERT PLUREMDEB ASHINGTON May 7 there had been any doubt that president Roose velt is deter mined to have congress enact his full legisla tive program at the present ses sion it was re moved by his la t e s t fireside chat to the country Some members of the congress have said priva tely all a 1 o ng that the white house would be forced to curtail ma terially its program of legislation unless it was willing for the session to be prolonged far into the sum mer Both houses have been in ses sion now some four months and only one of the presidents major been enacted The remainder of the extension of NRA economic secur ity the banking bill and the meas ure to eliminate some of the hold ing companies in public are so highly controversial it is im possible to say how much time will be required to thresh them out Senate Causing Delay If it were left to the house the presidents program probably could be completed with a minimum of delay Despite the fact house lead ers have abandoned gag tactics for the time being that body still seems to get things done The nomic security bill was hustled through quickly The banking bill is expected to be similarly ex pedited The rub comes with the senate The manner in which senators got themselves tied up on the Costigan Wagner antilynching bill is typical Any one of the proposals pending i on the presidents program is capa of holding up adjournment in new dealers are determines to obtain enactment of reform legislation at this session to supplement that put through at the last session Next year there is to be a presidential election and they know the chances are slim for getting very much done then The entire membership of the house and onethird of the senate will be up for reelection as well and pressure will be exerted for a short and snappy session Members of congress always are impatient to finish their business in Washington during an election year and go home They will havean added incentive in 1936 because of the presidential election Its an axiom in Washington that hot weather does more to influence congress to shut up shop than either the presient or anyone else APPEALS COURT ACQUITS LANGER ST PAUL May 7 United States

CASH BONUS Hanna Notes Growing Feeling of Confidence CHICAGO EDITOR HEARD BY IOWA BANKER GROUPS Declares Nation Looks Forward to Gains in Business CHARLES CITY May A growing feeling that business is go ng to improve and prosperity re urn regardless of what is done at Washington has been observed by Phil S Hanna editor of the Chi cago Journal of Commerce in near y every community he has visited recently he said here this after noon He was addressing the con ventiion of groups 3 and 4 of the owa Bankers association For this change I am very thankful Mr Hanna declared The statistical record of business does not yet confirm the change of sentiment with any degree of def niteness he continued and this makes one a little chary about pre diction Railroad car loadings in creased in anticipation of the rise n freight rates but have since di minished to about the level they were running in April and are fol owing the 1931 curve he reported At Highest Point Production of electricity anolh r valuable barometer is above the lighest point reached at any time ast year except in December Mr Hanna said If the curve of pro duction follows its normal seasonal rends the electric power industry will make a very favorable showing and will compare favorably with some or the years J930 activity index stands at a trifle above 70 against a normal of 100 A year ago at this time the index stood at 68 Automobile production as most everybody is aware has run ahead if any year of the last five years and is accounted for by the fact that its prices have not been in Teased and because in my opinion lie labor in an automobile is more evenly exchangeable for the labor in other goods and services than most any other commodity Others May Suffer If the labor people succeed in heir demands for higher wages and a closed shop and the price of auto mobiles is advanced I believe we may look for a decline in automo jile sales The price of automobiles as been maintained relatively at a parity with other commodities and f this relative relation is upset it will not be a good thing for the in dustry itself or in fact for the thousands of allied lines of business which supply the automobile with materials and parts The force of this contention will be better real ized when We consider that the mo tor industry is one of the largest consumers of steel and leather and rubber in the country A cheerful note comes from the petroleum industry which finds con sumption creeping up and in a much setter relation with production than the last four or five years For he first time the great bulk of re ail sales are being made at prices which more nearly justify the fixed price of a barrel for crude Here again is a case where pri vate enterprise is largely respon sible for bringing order out of chaos The large refiners have Sought up surplus gasoline and shifted it about from one point to another to balance consumption and the industry itself has made progress in self regulation of pro duction Both Good and Bad The extremely low rates for money are both a good and a bad sign In some of our good years in the past we have produced 40 bil lion dollars of capital goods and 30 billion dollars of consumer goods The probabilities are as judged by the recent conference board report placing 1934 income at 46 billion dollars that the country is pro ducing at the rate of about 75 or SO per cent of its consumer goods nor mal and perhaps 10 or 15 per cent of the normal amount of its capital goods You appreciaate how futile a five billion dollar fund really is af ter all in the light of these figures for five billion dollar fund really is after all in the light of these fig ures for five billion dollars is but ys of what we normally produce in the capital goods industries and one sixth of our normal production in consumers goods But as taxes of course 5 bil In Jail Break JAMES MOKKIS 2 SAW WAY OUT OF COUNTY JAIL Young Convicts on Parole From Anamosa Held for Auto Theft James
