Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - October 20, 1936, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLHI FIVE CENTS A COPS ASSOCIATED PRESS LEAKED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA TUESDAY OCTOBER 201936 THIS PLPEIt CONSISTS OP TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 10 Compromise Impossible Lewis Doesnt Want Partial Victory Over Green CREAMERY AT MALLARD LOOTED By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON hen the American Federation of La bors executive council suspended the 10 unions at filiated with John L Lewis com mitttee of indus trial organization the suggestion j was made that the suspended bodies appeal to the courts to compel the A F of L to recognize their delegates at the federations Tampa conven tion in November However Lewis president of the United Mine Workers as well as head of the C I O movement was prompt to deny that any such step would be taken Were afraid he explained to newspapermen that wed win That statement undoubtedly summed up the whole labor situation in a small mouthful of words No Partial Victory Lewis with a following of about 1150000 approximately onethird of the total strength of the A F of is pursuing a course which can not attain its objective by comprom ise or even a partial victory On the opposite hand the A F of L cannot agree to what the C I O demands as a minimum without admitting utter defeat The A F of L alarmed by Lewis potencyis disnoscd to yield some what but naturally its management balks at abdicating unqualifiedly in favor of the C I O folk and Lewis demands nothing in terms quite so brusque but that is what he means Aristocracy of Labor The A F ofL is an aristocracy of highly skilled and very select The C I O aims atan alignment of all classes of workers The A F of L has had plenty of influence but it has kept clear of outandout partisanship The C I O and organizations as sociated with it take sides Inshort the C I Os plan is to become ultimately a necessarily a labor parly but a party consistingof a labor nucleus with other groups included in and wagged by the labor party too Lewis LooUs to lJ10 That this amalgamation can be effected aristocratic labor common labor white collared labor agricul ture and miscellaneous folk is prob lematic If it la a task which John L Lewis is equal to he should be a presiden tial candidate in 1910 Maybe he will not be elected but he will be in the running Is it likely thar he will sur render his lead to President Green of the A F of L in the meantime If he compromises with the A F of L that is what he does Must Remain at Odds Not that Green ever could become prcsidentially prominent But if Green retains his hold over a predominant A F of L Lewis chances automatically wither and die And if the A F of L reabsorbs the C I O by compromise that is what follows Consequently Lewis must remain at odds with William Green There cannot be a compromise Naturally Greens inclination is to compromise a little if he can And Lewis inclination is to do nothing of the kind if he can avoid it Some sort of a nominal bargain may be patched up but the odds are many to one that it will not last 2 Hurt as Train Crashes Bus PARIS persons were killed and five injured when the ParisBasel express crashed into an omnibus at Chaumont Tuesday and was derailed BUTTER STOLEN THERE 2ND TIME IN THREE WEEKS London Praises CCC Hits Politicians at Head Gang or Search for New Remnants of Old One Is Intensified Theft of 54 tuba of butter from the Mallard creamery in Palo Alto county early Tuesday caused North Iowa authorities and the state bu reau of investigation to intensify their search for cither a new gang of butter thieves or what may be a revival of an old gang which had recently been scattered by the law On Sept 26 the Mallard cream ery was robbed of 38tubs of butter The loot which was trucked away Tuesday amounted to 3456 pounds The robbers forced open a rear door and cut a switch leading to the burglar alarm Discovered by Employes The Mallard theft was discovered when employes arrived Tuesdas morning for work Procedure fol lowed in the theft was similar to the many that have occurred in North Iowa the past year Investigation Bureau Chief Glen at Des Moincs dispatched J S Gladstone state fingerprint expert to Mallard at once He said Agents Al Haight and Paul Gruber would follow him to join in a search for clews Exceeds Bank Lootings Meanwhile Sheriff Bert F Mont gomery of Palo Alto county pressed the investigation at Mallard where the robbery was one of many in which loot the past year in this sec tionot the state had reached the 535000 mark an amount far great er than lostthrough bank robberies Hopes that the North Iowa butter theft gang had been broken when eight were arrested were apparently blasted for Iowa officials as the heavy losses continue Three mem bers of the gang have been sent to prison charges are pending against four one has broken jail and one is fugitive Ringleader at Large Tlie state bureau of investigation Tuesday sent 3000 wanted cir culars to officers throughout the country asking authorities to be on the lookout for George Shorty Hart of LeMars the suspected ring leader of the butter thief gang re cently rounded up but who escaped from jail He broke out of the Kos suth county jail at Algona Oct 10 where he was being held for trial Haijvey Mighell of Holstein is also a fugitive from justice in the but ter theft probe The unusual setup required by the butter thieves was also being studied by authorities They pointed out that not only must the thieves have facilities for handling the bulky loot with rather quick dis patch because of its perishable quality but must also have a fence where a large quantity can be mar keted James Sale of Insurance Fresh Angle Broadcast Firm Denies It Affected Speech by Vandenberg NEW YORK ft The name of President Roosevelts son James and the sale of an insurance con tract to the Columbia Broadcasting system were injected Tuesday into debate over Columbias curtailment of a speech by Senator Vandenberg RMich Saturday night in Chi cago Edward Klauber executive vice president of the radio chain said young Roosevelt participated in negotiations for a group insurance plan for Columbia employes in Aug ust 1934 He said however that this had nothing to do with the decision to cut Vandenbergs address from the air lanes and repeated the previous announcement that the action was in line with a ruling against broad casting of recorded programs Replies to Query Klauber made his statement ill reply to a query from Senator Has tings RDcl which noted a per sistent rumor that James Roosevelt has recently written a large sum of insurance for your company and that this had something to do with the decision reached by you After Klaubers reply became public Hastings declared that when this business was given to James Roosevelt his competitors were told that the price quoted by them would not be considered that the busi ness was to be given to James Roosevelt as amatter ofpolicy It occurs to me the ruling on the Vandenberg speech prohibiting a broadcast in which the presidents voice is either reproduced or a pho nograph record or simulated by an actor is a similar matter of policy as influenced the coriipanyj in giving the business to James Roosevelt Finn More Satisfactory Klauber said the insurance con tract went to the company Travel ers represented by the presidents son and another accredited agent identified only as Sargent because the plan jointly submitted by these men appealed to us as more satis factory than any other proposition received The radio executives reply to Senator Hastings added K x x Since your wire intimates there are those who
