Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - October 10, 1936, Mason City, Iowa Final Final Iowa South Minnesota Nebraska Ohio Pittsburgh Indiana Michigan NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME Iowa THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLIII FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WISE MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY OCTOBER THIS PAPER CONSISTS OP TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 1 Realignment Is Indicated Progressives Place Their Main Hopes on 1940 By CHARLES P STEWAKT TASHINGTON Consid ered nationally rather than as a mere statewide effort the Wis consin progres sives campaign strategy s i g n i fies much more as to 1940 than as to the current year Just now it simply is bad ger state move ment but unmis takably its ob jective is the cre ation of a new party of major proportions before the time comes for another presidential fight Ob viously the idea if the plan works is to unite agrarian urban labor and miscellaneous new deal voters under one banner Maybe still assuming the schemes success the new groups 1940 white house candidate will be one of the LaFollettes maybe John L Lewis maybe a third nomina tion wiD be offered to President Roosevelt maybe some as yet com paratively unadvertised leader will come to the front New Style Democratic Anyway the new deal manifest ly is no longer democratic in the did sense Oldtime democrats like Al Smith exSenator James A Reed and ex Gov J B Ely of Massachusetts have left the democratic party to become at least temporary republi cans In all likelihood they will stay so There is no prospect that they ever will be able to regain control of their former organization and aside from the republican ranks they have no place to go Similarlysuch individuals as Sen ator George JW Norris John L Lewis Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture Ickes and Wallace and the LaFollettes have ceased to be even nominal republicans and now are not indeed democrats oi any sort ever known before but rew dealers Already New Party In short the new deal and itsal already constitute a new party The Wisconsin program aims at giving it an entity In other words the LaFollettes Lewis and others hope to consoli date new deal democracy agri culture city labor and perhaps moderate socialism in 1930 against may be left of the conservative clasc But it is a question Has the time yet come for a partv will it have come by 1940 It may seem so but it has seem ed so often before and failed to eventuate Minor Insurrections Disregarding a few minor insur rections like the knownothings the populists and the greenback ers in earlier years there never an important cleavage from the two party old liners until Palmer and Buckner bolted William J Bry an in 1896 That was abortive There was a more formidable bolt when exPresident Theodore Roose velt ran as a bull mooser in 1912 He decided the election by splitting the vote so as to give an electoral majority to Woodrow Wilson but the big parties stayed The late Senator Robert M La Foliette tried again in 1924 That didnt either senator carried his own state noth ing more Names Held Voters The interval between today anl 1940 looks like a better time for the parties to realign than ever in the past Still we have thought that over and over again before Its almost incredible what a hold the two old parties have had rpon the loyalty of their respec tive memberships by virtue or thsir names not what they stood for The chief obstacle in the way of the formation of a liberal party is to be found in the difficulty of ef fecting an agreement between ag riculture and urban labor to unite for his crops but wants to do his The farmer wants high prices buying in a cheap market Urban labor wants high wages but low living costs Ideally they should be partners in a farmerlabor party They are bitter rivals in fact Former Iowa Sister Succumbs in China CARROLL Friends here have been advised of the death of Sister Mary Dominica Urbany for mer superior

SENATOR NORRIS Tours Southwest Iowa Nebraska on Way to Omaha LINCOLN ing thousands of Nebraskans packed in front of the state capitol hero President Roosevelt declared Satur day one of the great lessons of the last four years has been realiza tion to think in national We havecome to he as serted that anything that harms one state harms other states The people in the industrial centers are beginning to realize they cant be prosperous unless you people Hre prosperous out here That has been one of the card inal principles that has directed our program in Washington that is to help everybody instead of just a few No Tax on Homes Reiterating speeches earlier in the day he told of receiving a tele gram saying someone was making a house to house canvass saying if he were reelected he would liqui date the national debt by placing a tax on homes Most people un derstand that taxes on real estates are levied for the benefit of local government he said There never has been and never will be a federal tax on farms and homes as long as I have anything to do about he asserted The arrived here after a morning tour through Iowa and Nebraska making rear platform appearances and after a speech in St Paul Friday night in which he asserted figures on growing con sumption and better farm prices proved the new deal reciprocal tar iff program was benefiting Ameri can industry and agriculture At Plattsmouth Mr Roose velt indorsed Senator George W Norris who is a candidate for re election telling a rear latform crowd I brought about the best part of Nebraska into Nebraska with Talks of Budget President Roosevelt told a large depot crowd at Creston Iowa that much was being said about the federal budget by people who had never read one He added he had had occasion to study the budget which was as large as a Sears Roebuck Tracing a course through south west Iowa enroute to Nebraska for a speech at Omaha at 8 p m Sat urday the president was greeted by early morning groups and bands all along the route The crowds ap peared at Osceola and Afton before he finished breakfast and no plat form appearances were made at j these points At Creston the president went out and surveyed what he termed a grand crowd and then turned to the budget purchasing power and deficits 8 Billion Deficit He said the new deal had in curred a deficit of less than eight billion dollars but at the same time through efforts to increase j purchasing power had boosted na tional income by more than 22 bil lions since 1932 Gov Clyde L Herring of Iowa introduced the chief executive who j immediately paid tribute to Secre tary Wallace a guest on the train who was born near Creston Down in the presr ident said Weve never had a sec retary of agriculture who under stood the farm problem as well as Wallace and tied it in with the national economy as well as he Things Picking He said things were picking up for the railroads that a larger col umn of goods was moving over them and more jobs had been cre ated That means national economy in the best the president as serted adding it also means more purchasing And looking at he contin ued it looks as if in spite of the drought you have more purchasing power than in The president led up to his budget remarks by asking the crowd a question If you could borrow and found you could increase your in come every year would you do it he asked When the cheers subsided he added Annual Income Increased That in effect is what has hap pened to the country We have in Business Gains Cited by Davies creased the debt less than eight bil lion dollars and have increased the annual income more than 22 billion Secretary Wallace had arranged a four state farm meeting at the train soon after its arrival in Omaha Farm organization leaders from

tions Col Joe Nelson of the Min nesota national guard estimated personsheard the president Without referring to the recent speech at Minneapolis of his repub lican opponent Gov Alf M Lan don criticizing the reciprocal trade agreements he went on to say that mutual advantage has been the successful objective of the inter national pacts After his speech the president re turned to his train through streets crowded with spectators and con ferred with state farmerlabor and democratic leaders over the recent move to unite the two groups behind him in the November election by withdrawal of the democratic candi dates for senator and governor FarmerLabor Leaders Among those present according to presidential aides were farmer labor Governor Hjalmar Petersen farmerlabor Senators Benson and

figures reported to the research bureau for the first eight months of this year as com pared with business during tha same period for the last several years Near 1928 Level Iowa he said can be regarded as approaching tee 1928 level because we must remember that prices are now lower and a dollar will buy more now than in 1928 The greatest improvement is noted in Iowa building he explained They have gained 239 per cent over their low point of the depression years This cannot be taken as a true indicator of progress however be cause building was practically at a standstill for some time and the rise back to near normalcy had to be a big Additional estimated increases listed by Professor Davies included Sales on Increase Total income 36 per cent manu facturing income 38 per cent bank
