Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - October 22, 1936, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME HOME EDITION THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS VOL XLffl Would Pay Both Sides S Financing of Campaigns Not New Idea FIVE CENTS A COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS IJSASED WIRE SERVICE MASON GITY IOWA THURSDAY OCTOBER 22 1936 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SUCTIONS SECTION ONE NO 12 ORDER SINKING OF SOVIET SHIPS By CHARLES P STEWART TASHINGTON ma n Augustine Lonergan of the senates commit tee on investiga tion of campaign expenditures in proposing that the g pay 1 expenses in fut ure election fights suggests what it has long been recognized would be a good plan if it could be made to work fairly The idea is not a new one Sorcsoae has put it forward in con nection with every presidential or cocgredsional campaign in recent FASCIST ARMIES ONLY TEN MILES OUTSIDE Germany Accuses Russia of Sending Munitions to Spain By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Spanish insurgents pressing re lentlessly on Madrid from a long western front were reported Thurs day to have ordered their warships to sink any Russian vessels carry ing arms to the government de been made to practical application it invariably has foiiad that a problem pre wna itself which lawmakers never ve been able to solve The governmental finan1 tions would corruptio place a candidate of smau rreans on an equality with a one All Right in Theory In theory this is all right but in rractics a rich candidate can spend lideal c money in ways which are to promote his political Whbut exactly classifying lus campaign spending To offset expenditures a relatively im certain governments o this decision At the same time it was dis i London Russia renades and tanks to the Madrid government disguised as food cargoes Madrid its back to the wall named 60 year old General Pozas veteran of many campaigns to command its supreme defense A workers army of men was sent into battle for what the gov ernment said would be a smashing Expect Russia to Bolt The international noninterven boiling internation cOmmittee candidate now can solicit al of charges and counter from friendly sources charges between Russia and the SpaniSh government on one side and Germany Italy and Portugal thus his rivals fund If were denied the rigat to do oo nr content himself with j Qn tne otnert meets in London Fri Vovenmenla allowance contender would have the of asimilar allowance and besides could spend bales of his own ess ia effective fashion but not in a wlv to enable any tribunal to say he had so usedit as to win votes Thus the poor man in stead being granted equality would te outnghtly discriminated The rich man might have to be i trifle careful that is all Another Point Raised ot the scheme also raise the party in power irjji fic methods of being more onerous with government dollars nvard candidates of its own po litiral faith In short rather than endrig electoral corruption these argue that the system would be at least a temptation to tic governmental ins to utilize their advantage to keep the outs out bv even more meansthan any involved in private contributions to campaign funds Publicity concerning private contributions of course is essential but that is provided for already Not that it is altogether effective As previously remarked it fre quently is difficult to determine what is a campaign expenditure and what isnt Large Sums Spent Undoubtedly large sums are spent really to make votes which are not day Responsible quarters believe leaner listed as campaign expenses on the round that they were not spent for any such thing Occasionally a candidate over noes himself as in the case of the late William S Vare of Pennsyl vania The senate refused him a seat in the senate There probably are plenty of other cases which get by The present system isnt perfect but the governmental plan would be still less so in the opinion of most have given it mature consideration which maybe Senator Lpnergan has not done yet He sees evils to be cor reeled and so do the remainder but just how to correct them they havent figured out thus far TALLMADGEFATE IN JURYS HANDS Embalmer Accused of Killing Middle Aged Wife

republican presidential can didate was ordered by Dr Frank Schuster Thursday to remain in bed on his special train enroute to Okla homa City Dr Schuster who was called to the special train here told the gov ernor a throat infection he is suffer ing might spreadtothe larynx and temporarily destroy his voice unless he rests The doctor declined to permit the candidate to appear before a crowd that had anticipated a platform speech here Governor Landon conferred briefly with Walter H Case republican county chairman as his sunflower special campaign train halted here 15 minutes for operating purposes on its return trip from California Speaking before a station crowd estimated by Detective Capt W C Woolverton at 500 J Reuben Clark former ambassador to Mexico praised settlement of the United StatesMexico boundary and de nounced imperialism both in indi viduals and We Want Clark represented Landon as the ideal man for cries of we want Landon arose Clark said he brought greet ings

Wednes day night at Phoenix to say I take my stand on the American system of government against all at Phoenix At Phoenix a crowd estimated at by Mayor John H Udall cheered as Landon concluded and bent over the railing of his private car to grasp the outstretched hands of scores The fundamental issue as I see it in this Landon asserted is whether we shall maintain our American system of government or whether we shall surrender it for another and very dirferenfc system This is a question above party a question that challenges our most serious consideration not as demo crats or republicans but as Ameri cans I Through the constitution our forefathers gave the government they established certain rights and duties But they specifically kept for themselves and their children the right to live their own lives to speak freely to write freely and to worship according to the dictates of People Have Choice Landon continued the people of this country have a choice between the American system they aave always known and an opposite system This will determine whether they and their children will remain a free people capable of self gov ernment or be dominated by an all powerful central authority I am not questioning the human itarian intentions of the present ad ministration But I do wish to point out the threatening character of the means the administration uses to carry opt its intentions There can be no question as to the road down which we are being Asserting this threatened change in OUT form of government is not the nominee declared the new dealers have allowed nothing to deter them in their plan to make over our political social and eco nomic Forms of Government Forms of government under which all power is placed in the hands of a ruler with the

means or another rights to regulate can be set up such reg ulations will not stop with teltog farmers how many bushels of pota toes thfly can harvest Will Be Argued If tbis power of regulation shall be fully established it will then be argued there is equal authority to tell a man to cease farming entire ly and start digging ditches or to order women to cease wearing silk and rayon and to begin wearing cotton ones Or to order all work ing men to worktwicetheir present at half their present The men who framed and forced the passage of these Landon continued have not chang ed their ideas They
