HOME EDITION VOL XL FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED W1EB SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY MAY 25 1934 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OK TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 196 Borah Hits New Heights Tariff Bill Speech One of Highlights of Session By HERBERT PLUMMER WASHINGTON May 25 Regardless of whether one agrees with Edrah on the constitutional phases of the proposed tariff legisla tion the speech in which he gave utterance to his views will be set down as one of the highlights of the present con gress Borah the ora tor of the senate the man who packs the galler ies and fills the usually vacant seats of senators on the floor when it is known ahead speak attained occasion seldom WILLIAM EBORAH of time he is to heights on this reached even by him Veteran gallery observers say it has been at least five years since the lone lion of Idaho has at tempted an oratorical feat compara ble to this one Curiously enough his address came with sudden unexpectedness Everyone knew that sooner or lat er in the tariff debate a speech could be expected from him but they didnt look for it on the first day the bill was before the senate Sharpshooters Absent As a matter of fact McNary of Oregon republican leader of the senate was taken by surprise A few minutes before he had been try ing to get the democratic leaders to agree to lay the bill aside tempor arily and take up other business His three of Pennsylvania Hastings of Delaware and Hatfield of West Virginia were absent from the capital that day and none of the other republi cans to speak Robinson ofArkansas and Harri son of Mississippi the democrats in charge of the bill were reluctant to McNaryslrequestfir their eagerness to get through with de bate While the three were wran gling Borah arose from his desk in the rear of the chamber and said Mr President there is one jhre of this question I am willing to discuss now McNary visibly relieved glanced around at the empty seats on the floor and said he would ask that a quorum be called I do not yield for that purpose Borah replied and began to speak Awaited Opportunity What impressed those who heard him was that Borah was delivering himself of thoughts long burning within him The tariff bill gave him the opportunity he long has awaited opportunity to come to the de fense of the ideas and ideals to which he believes the American peo ple should cling His excoriation of these enemies of free government and his hope that someone in a place of power will rise to challenge these apos tles of terror and fanaticism may not have changed the minds of sen ators as to how they would vote on the bill His speech however seems1 certain to overshadow any other event during the senates consider ation of the measure TOLEDO STRIKERS RESUME RIOT Bank Guard Kills Robber Wounds One

store for farmers who have not received their quota fig ures Unofficial reports also showed the heaviest overstatement of produc tion figures came from the farm strike area in the northwest part of
