Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - May 30, 1936, Mason City, Iowa E It MCU A MEORAL DAY NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLII FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LKASED WIRE SEKV1CB MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY MAY 301936 NO 201 W A Pleased by Farley Slip G 0 P Likes His Inept Remark on Landon By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON CPA Post master General James A Far leys ears must burn as demo cratic politicians criticize in strict confidence his recent reference to Gov AM M Landon as a Prairie state non entity Calling the gov ernor a non entity might not have been so bad The impiiea t i o n however was that anyone who lives in the prairie state region is ipso facto a nonentity Anyway that is the interpretation which republican spokesmen in con gress are placing upon the P M Gs remark and democrats are con scious that it is not an interpreta tion calculated to be at all pleasing to Prairie state voters Maybe Farley intended his slur to apply only to Kansas but Kansas isnt the only prairie state by any means Eight or ten them are so describable and democratic candi dates from President Roosevelt on down may need all of them on elec tion day Fartey Too Eastern Mojeovezvas tte democrats see it therepublicans themselves could not have chosen a more democratically damaging individual than Farley to speak slightingly of the prairies Democratic politicians all along have been uneasily aware that the p M G as chairman of the demo cratic national committee is too emphatically eastern And he repre sents a president who virtually is a Manhattan suburbanite They knew too that many New York City folk are regarded in the west as ignorant of the fact that there is any United States beyond the Hudson river Now it is implied by Farley that this guess is adminis tration does consider the prairies of no consequence Respectful of West Of course it is foolish to say that the administration looks down on the prairie states it really is very respectful of the west Nevertheless the P M G gave offense Newspaper comment and con gressional speeches prove it But the republicans are delight ed They expect itto make plenty of votes for them perhaps not enough to win with but enough to be very helpful And the cream of it is that it was a democratic contribution Aid to Landon Another thing Farley is regarded as having practically clinched Landons nom ination at Cleveland He recognized in effect that the Kansas governor is the republican candidate whom the Rooseveltians fear Farley did him more good than could have been done by any amount of proLandon propaganda Farley also took an indirect un intentional jab at the Rooseveltian policy of experimentation Landon he said would be an ex periment Inept Suggestion Considering the fashion in which President Roosevelt has insisted up on the experimental course in deal ing with the depression it is diffi cult to think of a more inept sug gestion P M G Farley generally has been called a shrewd political man v ager Democrats are beginning to won ider if he isnt slipping l Republicans are hoping so The republicans difficulty is that jey havent any substitute to offer The democrats seem to them as sailable but the republicans have nt any shock troops North Iowa Edition Planned on Sunday The GlobeGazettes North

URGES PREPAREDNESS Less Than Third of Voters Expected at Polls G 0 P BALLOTS LIKELY TO FALL BELOW 300000 Primary Election Drive Is Quietest in Iowa Since War By GEORGE MILLS Iowa Daily Press Bureau DES 100000 and 500000 voters less than one third of the Iowa electorate are ex pected to go to the polls Monday to cast ballots in the quietest primary election since the war Indications from leading republi cans estimate the G O P vote un excited by the tea party tactics of the candidates will fall below the 300000 mark while democratic leaders admit optimism is rampant in their prediction of a volume be tween 175OOQand 200000 votes Iowa has approximately 1500000 persons eligible to vote according to federal census figures In 1932 the new deal landslide in the general election brought 1200000 citizens to the polls a record total Even Brookhart Quiet Even Smith W Brookhart breast beater of the twenties has staged a quiet campaign Like nearly ev erybody else the former Washing ton Iowa senator went visitin in his quest for the republican nom ination for the United States sen ate Senator L J Dickinson virtual ly ignored all his primary opposi tion for his post and kept up his runningfire attacks on the new deal as did Guy Linville of Cedar Rapids reported to be the Dan Tur ner candidate for the senate The sixway G O P senatorial scrap includes Mayor Edwin C Manning of Ottumwa George Chauey of Des Moines and Norman Baker of Mus catine Democratic estimates run from 200000 total down to 150000 Either figure breaks the partys previous primary record of 143738 votes cast in 1931 Administration chief tains say three closely contested primary races will stimulate the to tal past the present records Intraparty Battles Intraparty battles which are ex pected to build up the final count are the United States senator scrap between Gov Clyde L Herring and Congressman Hubert Utterback both of Des Moines the governor ship battle between Lieutenant Gov ernor Nels Kraschel of Harlan and Judge Richard F Mitchell of Fort Dodge and the four cornered attor ney generalship contest Matt Coon ey of Dubuque John Mitchell of Fort Dodge Claire Hamilton of Winterset and William Welch of Logan are the principals in the lat ter fight The democrats also expect greater party participation in local elections this year will add to the volume Cowity governments still are large ly controlled by Republicans but success higher up on the ticket in 1932 and 1934 has stirred the local democratic forces into trying to cap ture the courthouses they say G O P Seeks Peace Peace plans of the republican or ganization striving to avoid a dis astrous primary fight of the Col fleshTurner type in 1934 in the main were realized in the campaign Mayor Manning took an occasional crack at Iowas senior senator in be tween his criticisms of democratic methods of running government And John Grimes of Osceola strong ly criticized George Wilson of Des Moines one of his opponents for the G 0 P nomination for governor in his last minute speeches The third candidate in this race is George Call of Sioux City Otherwise the repub lican candidates spent their time di recting the attention of the voters to the new deal and to the state ad ministration Following is the primary vote cast eveiy two years in Iowa since 1920 The total vote for candidates fcv governor is used in the statistics for i 1931 and 1928 and the total vote for ON THE INSIDE OLEY NELSON Despoiling Memorial Day Brings Protest ON PAGE 2 Man Admits Killing 8 Large Cemetery Trees ON PAGE 12 Learn to Swim
