SEEN BY HAYES Former Legion Head Is G 0 P Speaker at Clear Lake CLEAR campaign is a fight between two philosophies of government the American sys tem as against those who would re make Ed A Hayes De catur former national com mander of the American Legion declared at a meeting sponsored by the Clear Lake Republican Service league at the Surf ballroom Wednesday night Mr Hayes charged the chief exe cutive with usurping legislative powers and with attempting to curb the power of the judicial branch of the government practices which he said imperil the American sys tem of government What did the republican party mean when at Cleveland it said is in peril the speaker asked If that statement is not true then the republican party is not en titled to your consideraion If it is true then people in such communi ites as this must get into action What are the bases for a state ment that America is in peril America is in peril first be cause the present chief executive his usurped the powers of con Couldnt Go to Congress Mr Hayes stated he came into direct contact with that situation while together with other Legion naires he was attempting to pro cure the passage of veterans legis I learned from John Rankin chairman of the Legion legislative committee that we couldnt present anything concerning veterans leg islation in congress because the chief executive had given out the word that nothing was to be passed and that if we were to get consid eration we would have to present it to the chief executive We were barred from the house of repre sentatives Did anyone before this adminis ration ever hear of must legisla tion and permissive legislation prepared by the chief executives henchmen and passed by legisla tors wtihout even reading I wonder il we have as much to fear from the insurrection of the ignorant as from the laziness of the intelligent to allow such a thing as that to continue America Is la Then too America is in peril because the president has the purse strings of tie nation He was given two billion dollars with which to regulate exchange and he doesnt have to report on what he has One of the strongest indications that America is in peril Mr Hayes declared is the attack of the chief executive on the supreme court They dont bavea supreme court in Spain Germany and Russia to he said And if we didnt have the supreme court in the United States today our system of government would be gone Ill tell you America is in danger when the president of the United States sneers at the supreme court This is not a fight between dem ocrats and republicans it is a fight between Americans and New Deal Another Reason The fact that the chief executive has as his advisers such men as Rexford Guy Tugwell who in tieir writings maintained America must be remade and that the constitution is obsolete ia another reason why President Roosevelt should not be returned to office Mr Hayes maintained Tugwell once stated they had reached their main objectives with the passage of two pieces of legisla tion the NRA and AAA both of which were held as not in harmony with our basic the speaker added Another reason Roosevelt should not be returned to office was his instruction to congress that cer tain legislation be passed without regards to its constitutionality If he wanted the constitution changed why didnt he gotiefore the people with an amendment that been voted on approached tile mat ter in the openinstead of pulling the wool over our eyes Is Last Bulwark The supreme court is last bulwark of our American system of government There is danger if Roosevelt is
