Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - November 13, 1936, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME HOME EDITION THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS VOL XLII1 FIVE CENTS A COPT ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WaRJC MASON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 13 1936 CONSISTS OF TWO SBCTIOrW SECTION ONE NO 33 President Will Rule Election Roosevelt Not Democratic Victory By CHARLES P STEWART A S H IN G T O N CPA Ol course Roosevelt ians are delighted with the unpre cedented majori ties the demo crats will have in both houses of the next congress ma jorities over the already enor mous ones in the outgoing legisla tive body N e v erthelesj the suggestion is heard that an a d ministrations congressional majority can be too large to be manageable It is true that it can times or even generally But it is doubtful that this is one of the times The argument is that a small majority stays solidly behind its administration for its own good It cannot afford to split and risk being outvoted with attendant damage to its own partys prestige Tends to Quarrel A huge majority however tendii to fall to quarreling within itself ultimately getting more or less be yond its administrations control This reasoning usually is sound Its soundness on an average was demonstrated in the last four years President Roosevelt had a thump ing majority in the seventythird congress an absolutely overwhelm ing one in the seventyfourth He never lost control either but he had some trouble Carter Glass Case The case of Senator Carter Glass of Virginia was the outstanding one of a statesman who though calling himself an administrationist op posed most of the administrations policies But there were plenty of others alike in the senate and house of representatives who were equally as inconsistent if perhaps not quite as vocal It was in the circumstances too large a majority in fact Now it is larger yet Does it follow that it will be more unmanageable from the white house than before It would follow if the president had skimped through rather moder ately at the polls still with a large sized but semidivided majority on capitol hill Victory lor Roosevelt The conclusion then would have been that the democratic party new dealers and Jeffersonians alike had won not so much the president personally But it did not come out like that The victory distinctly was a presi dential victory with nearly all of the lesser victors having slid in on his coattails These coattailers know now defi nitely who their boss i by unprece dented popular acclaim whose in fluence is likeliest to reelect them in 1938 when all of the representa tives and onethird of the senators be candidates again An occasional insurrecto like Carter Glass who will not face the voters next time until 1942 when in all probability hell be conquered by age may remain irreconcilable Nearly 80 Now He is nearly SO now There is small chance of that any consider able number of lawmakers elected on new deal principles whether as democrats or independents will dare to brave the lightning by defy ing aynthing that the administra tion after the 1938 congressional election anyway What 1938 may bring forth only heaven knows Thus the prospect is that the sev entyfifth congress vast as its ad ministration majority is will be more of a rubber stamp congress for the administration than any previous congress has been It is unfortunate in a way No Fair Discussion It makes for harmony to be sure but not for fair discussion of meas ures I do not say that the new deal is not all right but it ought to be criticized as it goes along It will not be Senator Charles L McNary will be the antis1 leader in the upper congressional chamber He is a weakkneed antinew dealer at best In the lower chamber Repre sentative Bertrand H Snell will lead the antinew dealers cause He is not weakkneed but he is not able enough to attract much atten tion And neither one will have backing sufficient to give him any conse quence Gets Five Tear Term WEBSTER CITY CSVBert Rob erts 33 Dea Moines was sentenced to five years in the state peniten tiary at Fort Madison when he pleaded guilty to a charge of break ing and entering the Henry Jacob sen clothing store at Stanhope Iowa April 29 ITALIAN RUSSIAN BREAK FEARED GMNDIATTACKS SOVIETS BEFORE Says Future Not Only of Spain but of All Europe at Stake LONDON possibility of a rupture of diplomatic relations between Italy and its accompanying fresh comment in London diplomatic cir cles Friday Debate centered around bitter Italian denunciation of the Moscow governments activity in the Span ish civil war and sarcastic retorts to the criticism The exchange of heated language interrupted a session of the inter national nonintervention commit tee whose members Thursday night acquitted Russia of three Italian charges of violation of the hands off policy in the Iberian conflict Dino Grandi Italian ambassador to London declared his nations ac ceptance of what he called the Rus sian challenge to sovietize Eu rope Future at Stake Italy in fsct is convinced that it is not only the future of Spain but the future oi all civilized Eu rope that is at stake Grandi declared Sarcastically Moiseyevitch Ka gan the Russian delegate replied It is a tune with which we are all familiar Soviet communism is the enemy of the world and that a great crusade of all civilized coun tries should be organized to destroy this terrible spectre So far the success of these fran tic appeals has not been very markedrEfndotibtedlyItaly hitherto has demonstrated her good sense by abstaining from any such stupid Additional interest in the diplo matic controversy was aroused when the Austrian delegate inti mated he wished to make some ob servations on ItaloRussian bicker ing His remarks apparently were planned for the next committee meeting set indefinitely for next week Atrocity Photographs In the midst of his tirade Grandi slammed a pile of atrocity photo graphs on the committee table de claring Spanish socialists inspired by Russian communists were re sponsible for the war cruelties Kagan replied the neutrality problem did not include discussion of the division between communism and fascism but rather was confined to differentation between war and peace He asserted nations which glori fied war and aggression were lined upon one side while on the other were countries which detested war and desired peace Duty of Russia The inclusion of the name of Jo sef Stalin whom Grandi described as chief of the bolshevist revolu caused some officials to com ment on the direct allegation against the communist official Grandi charged said it was the duty of the U S S R to render every assistance within their power to the Spanish communist revolution inasmuch as the libera tion of Spain from fascist oppres sion was not a private affair of the Spaniards but the common cause of To this Kagan retorted No amount of propaganda speeches for General Franco Gen Francisco commander of Spanish insurgents can hide the crying fact that taly stands un masked before the whole world as an aggressor and archviolator of international Fascists Bomb

of employment oppor tunity and improvement of com petitive and labor conditions in in dustry will be other aims of the parley Berry announced The ob jectives of the conference as des cribed were similar to the aims of the old frRA but there was no an nouncement as to just what new methods may be urged to attain those aims Business Leaders Cold Last year Berry called an indus triallabor conference but some business leaders were cold to it and when it took place it was almost dis rupted by an angry dispute center ing around an unsuccessful attempt by some business representatives to obtain the floor But Berrys announcement Friday said that those who boycotted his industrial council and those who criticized it will nevertheless be welcomed in friendly Apparently referring to the re cent election results he said Industry and the government as well must yield to and reflect the peoples Preparing New BilL On capital hill Senator OMa honey made known he was preparing a new bill to regulate in terstate corporations through a federal licensing system Corpora tions doing business over state lines would have to obtain licenses which could be revoked if the corporations employed child labor discriminat ed against women in wage scales or interferred with union activities Revised legislation to give the government increased power to sta bilize the soft coal industry is an other prospective problem awaiting the next congress Senator Guffey coauthor of the original coal control act wiped out by the supreme court repeatedly has announced his in tention of reintroducing a substitute bill The measure passed the house at the last session but died in the senate as a result of opposition by Senator Holt DW No Beason for Change Guffey told reporters recently he saw no reason for further changes in the measure Informed sources said however the bituminous coal commission created under the orig inal Guffey act has been consider ing possible alterations with a view to strengthening measures en forcement provisions Commission officials parried ques tions on the subject as premature and added they had not been asked for recommendations They said however that numerous phases of the industrys problems were being studied and that the commission would be ready with suggestions if called upon The supreme court removed the original act from the statute books on the ground its provisions for regulating wages and hours were invalid The new measure intro duced last session omitted these sections but otherwise was almost identical with the first measure which

Iowa South Da kota and Wyoming are on the up grade The upward surge in demand for midwest agricultural land this year is reflectedat the Federal Land bank of Omaha operating in the four states by the
