AMOcUted fnu and United Preu FuU Seven Ontj a Copy MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY NOVEMBER 29 Paper o Two 41 McCarthy In Offer to End Arguments by Late Wednesday WASHINGTON Sen McCarthy proposed Monday that tb Senate end its censure debate at 5 p m CST Wednesday He saic he was prepared for whatever the Senate might do In the interest of the overall national welfare I suggest that m good can be achieved by continuing this McCarthy told hi colleagues He said he had decided on the speech while he was in the Naval Hospital at Bethesda Md for treatment of an injured elbow For ll days the Senates spe cial session had been in recess while McCarthy was in the hos pital Soon after the Senate recon vened Monday McCarthy his arm in a sling took the floor for his dramatic proposal that the whole One Mens I A Rtdio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor Keep Your Eye on West Florida have one more name to add to my list For several years Ive been observing that I never heard a resident of Texas of San Fran cisco or Denver speak ill of his state or city To these three I mus add Florida specifically West Florida the section about Tampa St Petersburg Braden ton Sarasota and extending inland to Clearwater Lakeland and Lake Wales I am just home from a week spent in that area My pretext for the jaunt was a conference of As sociated Press Managing Editors in Tampa But from this time for ward Im not going to need any pretext Thats my way of saying that I really like the Gulf Coast of Florida In this visit with you I coulc most of my time or all 01 my time telling about the AP meetings featured by such famous sportisi authorities as Al 1opez o the Cleveland Indians Dr Forrest Phog Allen Kansas cage coach and Ed Moose Krause Notre Dame University Athletic Director Strong for Florida Maybe 1 should do that to justify my expense account But my very great preference is to report or what I SAW rather than on what HEARD Ill be spending most oi my time talking about Florida and by the time I end up you may even suspect that Im in the em ploy of the Tourist Commission of that semitropical state And when you speakof tourists you arespeaking of Floridas most lucrative and I suspect largest business While theres a surpris ing amount of industry and agri culture citrus fruits in par ticular the foundation of the Florida economy is catering to the winter visitor from Yankeeland From the time I stepped off my plane one Sunday forenoon until the time I boarded my plane the following Sunday for my return flight I found myself making com parisons I was setting Gulf Coast Florida down alongside Miami and the which I had visited several tinies I was also weigh ing Florida against California Main piffertnctt The most notable difference be tween West Florida and California I concluded were these 1 Florida is likely to be much balmier than her rival state on the Pacific Coast Certainly Ive never seen any California winter weather as warm as last week was in the area about Tampa I should add however in fairness that the Floridans themselves con aidered it unseasonably 2 If youre looking for moun tains or even rugged terrain you wont find em in Florida When I atood alongside the Bok Singing Tower at Lake Wales I was stand ing on the highest point in all of Florida It was feet above sea Iowa nor nor any state in the Upper Missis lippi Valley I might any spot as low as Floridas highest bill Guff Ceatt Lacs Swank The most notable differences be tween Gulf Coast Florida and At lantic Coast Florida seem to me to have been wrought by man rather than nature The physical aspects of the two areas struck me as being quite similar except for the much greater total of arable land in the Gulf ares These manmade differences to which Ive made reference strike me as stemming from this one central fact Whereas the East Coast Florida typified by Miami and Palm Beach has entered to the swank tourist trade people with fat purses and Gulf C o a t Florida typified V 81 Petersburg and Sarasota have made their appeal to thorn lew heavily weighed down with woridy I wade myself clear on this print What fm trying to say is Miamis is for the very tCWmnVfO FAM t matter be wound up quickly I am prepared for whatever action the Senate may take on this resolution of he said My colleagues I hope realize the tions and tremendous implica recognize their re sponsibility to the future For my part my efforts to expose Com munist infiltration in government will continue regardless of the outcome of the censure Quick Approval McCarthys proposal to start voting Wednesday won quick ex pressions of approval from Sen Knowland the Republican leader Sen Lyndon Johnson the Democratic leader and Sen Jenner a leader of the proMcCarthy forces However there was no immedi ate decision Knowland suggested that the question be put off until later in the afternoon Unanimous consent of all sena tors would be required to halt the debate and vote as McCarthy suggested McCarthy told the Senate that what he was saying was not to be taken as a compromise on his part and he said he was making 10 apologies for the viewpoints he has held But he said the charges againsi him boil down simply to have used discourte ous and offensive that have injured the sensibilities of some of my I admit that at tinies I have jeen extremely blunt in expressing my he continued I do not claim to be a master of words This being true I say to those who feel they have been offended Jjat I had no intention in the words hat were used of hurting the feel ings of in the facts and opinions that I held I am un changed Doesnt Like my colleagues I am not without weaknesses I like they make mistakes and however I may strive otherwise I suppose I shall make others in the future I yield to none of my colleagues lowever in my ideals my princi ples my integrity or my prayerful devotion to this great nation I am irivileged to try to serve I am distressed that for 10 months the attention of the Senate has been too greatly monopolized by the clamor and controversy over one senator Joe A new count against McCarthy accusing him of maligning the ipecial Senate Censure Committee had been prepared

treatment for the arm received on a Wisconsin speaking tour Adenauer Satisfied With Vote FRANKFURT Germany Chancellor K o n r a d Adenauer said Monday he is satisfied the results in two important state elections Sunday mean voters support his policy of rearming Germany on the side of the West He said in a statement that the vote was a reconfirmation of the correctness of his foreign policy but used only the word satisfac tory to give his reaction The chancellors Christian Democratic Union CDU lost ground in Sundays veting on both the states of Bavaria and Hesse but held control of the Bavarian state government This insured the Adenauer re gimes retention qf its twothirds majority in the upper house of the Federal Parliament Bundes rat whose members are named by the state governments The votmg outcome also raised the possibility that a coalition dominated by the Christian Dem ocrats could supplant the Social ist government in Hesse This would give the federal regime 30
