Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - September 17, 1936, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLH FIVE CENTS A COPT ASSOCIATED PRESS WIKB SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY SEPTEMBER THIS PAFEK CONSISTS OP TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 295 South Goes New Deal Upsets Traditional Conservatism in Primaries F STEWART ASHINGTON CP A Of course there has been no question any time that the south will go democratic at the coming election But what kind of democratic As to that there was for a while quite a bit of question It is answered n o w however Dixie will go Roosevelt demo cratic There seldom is any doubt con cerning the result of an election in a southern state Indeed in many of them there never is any doubt republicans do not even bother to nominate candidates However there frequently is plenty of excuse for wondering which of two or more democratic aspirants will win some particular nomination This 1ears Problem Such a situation notably existed prior to this years primaries Dixie is democratic mainly in a conservative old fashioned sense The Roosevelt regime has proved itself to be democratic in a decid edly new fangled sense A consid erable number of the old fashioned brand have gone so far as to deny that it is democratic in any sense Now the preprimary problem was Had the average dyedinthe wool democratic voter yet assimi lated the idea that the new deal is very different from what he al ways has considered democracy or did he still regard the present ad ministration as democratic because that is its label Xew Dealers Win On the former supposition it seemed reasonable to assume that a real oldline Jeffersonian would feel friendly toward the renomina tion candidacy of a democratic statesman like for example Sen ator Thomas P Gore of Oklahoma a lifelong democrat if democracy is what it used to be but a bitter antinew dealer On tbc latter theory it would have appeared that Senator Pack ard B Russell of Georgia should be turned down for renomi nation because although profes sedly Jeffersonian his record is so new dealcrish Well the problem is solved All Get Socked All through the southland the antinew deal democrats were socked the pronew dealers were triumphant In the northern states the division isnt so cleancut but in the south a nomination and an election are synonymous Senator Gore was retired in Ok lahoma Senator Russell mopped up the earth with the vehement antinew dealer Gov Eugene Talmadge in Georgia Senator Pat Harrison had a walk over in Mississippi despite the op position of his own statemate Senator Theodore G Bilbo Byrns Easy Winner Senator James F Byrnes made mincemeat of a couple Of antinew deal opponents in South Carolina Senator Joseph T Robinson had scarcely a fight in Arkansas Senator Carter Glass to be sure though severely an antinew deal critic is solid in Virginia but Glass has been but not ugly like Gore He even promises some speeches for the Roosevelt ticket In a way he is all the more valuable for his appear ance of independence Not New Dealers Parenthetically Robinson and Harrison never have been deemed personally new politically they have supported the administration loy ally If Senator Huey P Long of Lou isiana had lived they might have had rougher going The Kingfish might even have counted in Geor gia maybe in Arkansas and Okla homa Anyway the south clearly is pro Roosevelt He and the new deal are accept ed there as democratic Political analysts may draw party distinctions but the voters the southern ones in any event evi dently stick to party labels Emmet County Relief Dispute Continuing deny ing the request of a group of un employed who demanded the ap pointment of an accredited social worker the Emmet county board of asked the Iowa emer gency rtlief administration to send a representative here to certify workers for relief rolls About 50 unemployed picketed the courthouse MISS

which she charged the new deal including President Roosevelt with sponsoring unprecedented partisan political control of education through feder al alphabetical agencies Of Vital Significance Being absorbed in these matters of vital significance to our schools I accepted the assignment to intro duce my friend Mr the letter said Believing it opened up another battlefield upon which to wage war in support of this princi ple I cannot agree with you that by so doing I am not furthering the cause of Miss Samuelson the only republi can holding an office was victorious at the 1834 when thedemocrats
