Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - May 12, 1959, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for CITY GLOBEGAZETTE HOME EDITION The Newspaper VOL f7 Associated Prew United latenuUonal Full That Makes All North lojwans Neighbors j MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY MAY 12 7c CoPyThlj Consists Two On No W4 Ike Best at Making Veto Stick Proves He Has Deep Reservoir of Goorf By ROWLAND EVANS JR New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON If a Presi dents political power and stand ing were to be judged solely on the basis of the durability of his veto President Eisenhower would tower over some of his predecessors Eisenhowers judicious use of the veto has never been rejected byCongress even though for the third successive twoyear period Congress is in the hands of the opposition party His latest suc cess came earlier this month Although it was also his closest shave it portends further suc cess this year and next if the veto is again used Contrast this record with the record of former President Tru man whose vetoes failed to stick at least a dozen times dur ing the donothing Republican 80th Congress and the ensuing two Democratic Congresses TRUMANS VETOES of the TaftHartiey law the Commu nist Registration Act the Mc CarranWalter Immigration Act and some nine lesser Congres sional enactments were overrid den roughshod starting in 1947 and ending in 1952 Franklin Roosevelts most famous veto collision with Con gress came in 1944 when the Senate crushed his tax bill veto by a 74 14 vote The uneven struggle temporarily cost him his majority leader the late Al ben Barkley The Presidents veto power is limited not absolute If the President had an absolute veto power that would be the end of it But the Constitution goes on rto outline the machinery for en acting legislation over the Pres idents veto and without his sig nature by a twothirds vote in both Houses If the resourceful Roosevelt and the astute Truman camea cropper so many times at the hands of Congressional majori ties of their own party how is it that Eisenhower who is often said to lack a sense of politics has had so much success with opposition party legislatures IN of some 130 prison ers arrows who barricaded themselves behind a AP Ihotofax grabbing two guards as hostages They were corn cell block peer out at Tennessee prison officials after plaining about conditions at the prison farm 130 RIOT ON TENNESSEE FARM Prisoners Release 2 Hosfages THE ANSWER seems to be in part that it is precisely because the President is not a in the usual sense of that frazzled word that he has had his good fortune Truman went out of his way to fight with Congress His gar gantuan battles with Congress were an essential part of h i s Presidential politics The simple fact of his presence in the White House raised the Senates hac kle and quickened the Houses pulse Truman had made the 80th Congress the whole point of attack during the 1948 Presi dential campaign He accused H of the worst sort of chicanery charged it with selling out the American people whistle stopped it half to death Roosevelt was less the whipi handed taskmaster But when his break with Congress came in 1937 over the plan to pack the Supreme Court the Congression al frustrations of four years of virtually total executive control over the affairs of the Federal government came to a head THE CONCLUSION seems in escapable then that the Con gresses of the Roosevelt Tru man era exulted in retaliation against the strong man down town President Eisenhower the military product who is s u p posed to be innocent of the art of politics has never even tried to push Congress to the point of retaliation He has seldom pressed legislative schemes upon it that aroused the genuine fears of any one in Congress Mr Eisenhower has never spoken contemptuously or dis paragingly of Congress He has never knowingly denounced in dividuals who sit there as Tru man once denounced the too many He has careful ly and over many more years than he has been President cul tivated the good will of its most influential Democrats men like Sen Lyndon Johnson Speaker Sam Rayburn Sen Richard Russell of Georgia and Sen Harry Byrd of Virginia AH
