NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL xm FIVE CENTS A COPV ASSOCIATED PJiESS LEASED WIRE SJSBVJCE MASON CITY 10 VA TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 8 1936 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 287 Straw Vote Has Effect Politicians Believe It Has Influence on Election GERMAN SOVEREIGNTY RESTORED By CHARLES P STEWAHT ASHINGTON can didate who is in a straw vote mi nority naturally pooh poohs the significance of that kind of a vote Neverthel ess he and his man agers dont like it They would prohibit such voting if they could The candidate on the majority aide is pleased It is not exactly that he considers the vote a reliable indicator It is not necessarily so for organizers of these tests un avoidably get their ballots from a more or less picked fraction of the electorate For example one meth od is to choosei names from tele phone directories Now folk who have telephones We in a somewhat select many of them plutocratsbut in themain moder ately well to do On an average they hardly can be reckoned as of quite the same political sympathy with voters who are on relief Send Out Agents Some straw vote organizers have adopted the method of sending but agents to contact the telephoneless masses personally but that means that the telephoneless ones are like ly to be overemphasized in propor tion to those with phones True the Literary Digests polls in the past have proved to tie pro phetically pretty accurate The man formerly in charge of them now is conducting an independent poll being used by a considerable number of papers Politicians dovnot accept a straw vote at its actual face value Whatthey dovbeJieye is that the Rebels Reject San Sebastian Surrender Offer MASON CITYANS CLEANUP DEBRIS LEFTBYSTORM Restore Electric Lines to Most Sections of City Mason Cityans spent Monday cleaning

business life To Visit North Iowa as usual were still however againstfhis NotUiideirSuspicion NcvnaUbhal straw ballot thus far ia under suspicion of having been doctored by its organizers but there critics who say it might be done In fact now that such ballots have become so popular they predict that it will be done in future campaigns and they foresee that this doctoring if any may unfairly affect the later official vote Their reasoning is based on the assumption that about 20 per cent of the countrys electors want to cast their ballots for whichever can didate promises to win ratherthan from any conviction that one or the other of them is the better man In other words they seek the band wagon if they can determine in advance which is which It may amount to nothing to them either psychology of the city proceeded Many show windows boarded up Tuesday awaiting the arrival of new plate glass to replace that shattered by the storm There was a question in the minds of fair offieals
