Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - May 9, 1935, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION vouxu FIVE CENTS A COPT ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED W1KE SEKV1CJ5 MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY MAY 9 1935 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 179 lowans in Washington Gilchrist Is Author of FrazierLemke Bill Report ASHINGTON May 9 When the house agricultural com mittee decided to approve the Frazier Lemke bill to refinance farm mortgages its democratic chairman went to the cornbelt for an Iowa repub lican to write the report Representative Fred C Gilchrist R one of a group of mid dlewestern con gressmen which has been active in a fight for any legislation which would lower inter est rates was the author There are some things in the bill I didnt like to have to defend Gil chrigt said today but it marked an important stage in our efforts to gain recognition of the need for lower farm interest rates Pictures Many Realities The report itself pictured numer ous realities from Gilchrists exper iences in the middlewest The American farmer is a manly man he wrote he believes that he must always perform his con tracts and keep his promises and be loyal to his country and keep and preserve its laws and fulfill his duty to society in general After sketching the results of the depression on the farm Gilchrist raised a series of question But is not his duty to his wife and his children the most sacred of all these he asked Is not his promise to his loved ones as con secrated as all others If he is thrown out of house and home without fault of his own he is likely to feel that force of resentment which might even impel him to re sist force with force Are Feeding America Despair may at times drive the jbest of citizens to desperation and no American citizen has a right to eat the bread that they produce un less he is willing to share with them all of the things that bring about beautiful home living and establish them in society on a basis of decent bountiful intelligent and religious twentieth century citizenship Gilchrist said the bill which would authorize issuance of 000000of inflationary currency for use in refinancing farm mortgages at 1 per cent interest with an nual payments on the principal of per cent was not intended to increase farm indebtedness but to extend farm debts over a long per iod so the farmer can keep a home for himself and his wife and chil dren lowans Not Confident Facilities for getting the farmer into debt Gilchrist wrote are al ready quite adequate but facilities for getting him out of debt are in adequate It has now become our duty to provide farm credit at such rates and oh such terms as will get farmers out of debt Then and not until then will they acquire buying power and be enabled to enter the markets and take part in business activity and in the restoration of prosperity to the whole country and to all classesof people While members of the Iowa house delegation generally have indicated they would support the measure they have little confidence it will be given a chance to get to a vote Getting it out of the committee in both house and senate gave it the greatest progress it ever has at tained in congress Dickinson Predicts New Deal Future PHILADELPHIA May 9 CSV Senator Dickinson RIa told Shrine club

measure to the president as it passed the senate Tuesday Mr Roosevelt summoned Secre tary Morgenthau and Frank T Hines the veterans administrator for a midafternoon conference to go over the Patman measure prepara tory to a veto Senators who led the fight for the Patman measure providing for pay ment of the bonus with 000 of new currency said they had rejected proposals for a compromise to make the currency issue optional with the president Decide Against Move This had been proposed by Sena tors Clark RMo and Gore D Okla as a means of gaining more votes in an effort to pass the bill over a presidential veto Patman bill supporters decided however to stand on the present measure At the same time Senator Thom as leaderof the Patman bill forces entered motions that would permit him to change his mind later and ask for recon sideration of the vote He said he was making the move as a precau tionary step only and had no inten tion at the present time of going through with it I think the bill is strongest in its present shape the Oklahoman told newspapermen Asked if he had enough votes to pass the measure over a veto Thomas said Trying for Votes We are trying to get them we havent got them now But we cant jet any more votes by reconsider ing If we get one vote we will lose three While these behindthescenes moves were made a filibuster ad vanced in the senate with republi can

Gazette criticizing the continuance of the appeal of Harold M Cooper former Iowa li quor commission chairman was filed in the Iowa supreme court today by Boardman and Cartwright of Mar shalltown attorneys for Cooper We protest against such tactics on the part of the newspaper men tioned because it seeks to belittle this court and endeavors to make public believe it can by such publication affect its decision the protest said Whether such actions are of that character to require any action on the part of this court or whether too trivial to be dignified by any judi cial notice is not for our sugges tion In Printed Form The protest in the printed form objected specifically to two news paper stories in the Gazette of May 4 The stories were quoted in full in cluding the headlines

agencies of the state and par ticularly the courts in this particu lar case as to this particular de fendant all done to prejudge and prejudice the defendant Harold M Cooper the protest declared Should Be Challenged We feel that such an article as appeared May 4 1935 set out above and the inference to be de rived therefrom should not pass unchallenged We are not at all concerned or are we in any way apprehensive of any effect that such publication might have on this court Our only concern Is the effect that such pub lication will have on the unthink ing and misinformed public This court must understand and reassert no criticism of this courts action is in any manner in tended or even suggested All we are showing from the record is that we were as diligently as we knew how endeavoring to obtain an early hearing not indulging in any stall ing strategy Disclaim Any Criticism Neither are we in the most re mote degree in any manner criti cizing the attorney generalsoffice Turn tn

was advocated by Mr Smith as a means of insuring against the dan gers of shortage of foodstuffs in years of drought or under produc tion otherwise caused A good many of the critics of curtailed production said Mr Smith to the fact that there are people starving in China that we ought to feed them But Im just hardhearted enough to believe that I owe my first consideration to my own family and to my neighbor Another criticism of the triple A Mr Smith pointed out is that it has driven out rugged individual ism Im saying to you that there is no such thing as rugged individual ism in this
