Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - November 28, 1936, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLUI FIVE CENTS A ASSOCIATED PRISE LEASED WlKH MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY NOVEMBER THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 46 BUSINESS FALLS IN AntiNew Dealers Early Reconciled to Defeat By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON I have had occa sion to remark heretofore it is amazing how speedily Amer i c a n business reconciled itself to the last na tional election result It is not merely glumly acquiescent in seems gratified Almost hilari ous Yet it ap peared to be fighting the new deals continuation in power to the very last minute It might be argued that big business did the preelection fighting that little business was pronew deal all the time that big business hopelessly licked has subsided into silence because there is nothing better for it to do and that little business is doing all the postelection shouting But that is not the case Big Business Rejoices It is big business which is as vociferous in its rejoicing now as it was pessimistic in its outcries before election day One way or the other it is more vocal than little business for it has high powered spokesmen they are do ing todays enthusiastic yelling just as they did the opposite kind of yelling up to about midnight Nov 3 when they realized that their side had been swamped at the polls The rapidity of their flop was what was so astonishing Werethey as scared as they pretended to be before election Or are they less reassured than they pretend to be by the election result Favor CoOperation Certainly no one would have contended that the U S Chamber of Commerce was otherwise than a very conservative organization before election day For years it has been so considered Yet now its president Harper Sibley is one of the countrys foremost expon ents of business cooperation with new deal necessar rily ad lib but pretty much so However the U S Chamber was nothing for toryism in com parisonwith the National associa tion of Manufacturers decade past whenever as a newspaperman I wanted to get the reactionary viewpoint con cernin governmental issues I have consulted the headquarters of the Manufacturers7 association in Washington Preaches New Deal Ard today we have the associa tions president C M Chester preaching new dealerism Sibley and Chester are not the only ones either From talks I have had with U S Chamber and NationalManu facturers members I draw the conclusion that both of these bod ies have had liberal elements in therft for a long time The liberals apparently have been squelched for years but in creasing in strength gradually I have consulted a considerable number of members of both or ganizations on this subject and the conclusion I draw is that new blood slowly is infusing both of them New Guard Gains They are like politicians the old guard is disintegrating a new is succeeding it but so gradually that it has been almost imperceptible But somewhere there had to DC a turning point Was it marked by the last elec tion If so four more years may see two very different U S Chamber of Commerce and National Manu facturers associations The old folk are dying off What the rising generation will be like heaven knows We of the present generation be dead soon anyway Whad da we care AUTO
