Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - September 25, 1936, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME HOME EDITION THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IQWANS NEIGHBORS FIVE CKNTS A COPS ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRB SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY SEPTEMBER THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS Changes in Party Seen Americans Are Not as Conservative as Once FASCIST ARMY OUTSIDE TOLEDO Bv CHAitLES P STEWART ASHINGTON CPA There are two theories long regarded by political analysts as u n q u a lif iefl truisms in this country both of which may be wrong as of to day One is that re publicans normal ly are in a ma jority through out the United States that democrats never can win on a na tional scale ex cept by a fluke of some sort The other is that Americans basically are the most conservative people on earth Undoubtedly both assumptions were sound for a long long time It isnt so certain that either is sound now If not election fore casts which presume their correct ness should be taken with a liberal allowance of salt Yet maybe they still are or semisounnd The latter is the liXelier guess On that supposition the question arises How True How much water do the old theories continue to hold And how much has leaked out of them It is too soon to tell with any ac curacy This makes tie science of politi cal divination very unreliable Yes the country was normally prorepublican But it must be remembered tha the democratic party of the new era to a great extent has become the republican party of half a gen eration ago or less Couldnt U mean that that readjustment im plies a flop of republicans to democ order to be where they were in the first place Thus mak ing the normal ma jority group No not necessarily Not immedi anyway Vote From Habit Thats what it would mean if the mass of voters voted for what the party of their choice really Stands for but they do not they vote largely as a matter of habit Of course they do gradually re alin but not within the space of twfor three elections It takes although republican ism and democracy virtually having swapped positions one might tnmk the democrats should be normally in a majority at present maybe the reshuffle has not progressed that far yet maybe some extraordinary situation still is required to enable a national democratic ticket to win Less Conservative And as we as conservative as we Landon Campaigns in Country of LaFollettes When this was a land of unlimit ed opportunities it was conserva tive naturally Folk who had found their opportunities and taken ad vantage of them were conservative becaule they wanted to keep what they had Those who hadnt been so fortunate continued to hope that they would be luckier shortly and did not want the system altered un til this hope had been realizeo But the opportunities are not ly so plentifully around loose now most of them already have been gobbled up and have gravitated into few hands Perhaps More So The few who have a practical monopoly of them are as conserva tive as ever perhaps more so But vastly larger proportion of the citizenry realizes that it is defi nitely on the outside looking in and not looking in hopefully either as formerly was the case Such in dividuals tend to develop the di vide our wealth complex which isnt conservative a bit The chances are then that we are not quite as conservative as we were but just how much less so we are is another thing that car only be guessed at Conservatism is somewhat a mat ter of habit too RAPATNEWDEAL TRADE PACTS IS LOUDLYCHEERED Pledges Saving American Market for American Farmers TEXT ON PAGE 2 ABOARD LANDON SPECIAL ENROUTE TO OSHKOSH J Alf M Landon opened his Wisconsin presidential campaign Friday with an assertion that the new deal had lost the farmer his foreign markets and tossed away our home markets like so much It was bad the republi can candidate said for the admin istrations agricultural program to lose our foreign markets for meat and dairy products but it was noth ing short of crime for its ill advised system of reciprocal trade agree ments to toss away our home mar Confers With Leaders Traveling through the rolling Wisconsin hills home of La Follette proTessivism Landon conferred with party leaders of the Badger state in his private car The official party included Ed ward J Samp of Madison chairman of the state republican committee Pierpont Wood of Janesville nation al committeeman John B Chappie Ashland editor and former republi can nominee for United States sen ator Morgan Murphy Superior publisher Bnice Gay of Eau Claire John and Dan Wallace uncles of Secretary of Agriculture Henry Wallace and others Landon told the Eau Claire throne estimated at by Po lice Sergeant E R Klingbeil that trade agreements on cheese handed your state a the audience shouted Know the Answer You Badgers and we Jayhawk the Kansan continued know the answer to the handicap under which present administration poli cies have placed our farmers And we also know the answer to the ap palling waste of federal funds that is now going on What we need is more of that sane management for which the farmers of this state of Wisconsin are famous They are as determined on tne one hand that not a single necessary duty shall be unperformed as they are on the other that cent shall be wasted in doing Landon left Minneapolis at a central standard time after an early breakfast in his hotel Frank B Kellogg former secretary of state breakfasted with the nom Landon Is Not Superman Type but He Knows When to Say Yes and When No SAYS MORE THAN 800 EXECUTED Englishman Tells of Acts of Spanish Loyalists at Ronda GIBRALTAR UP More than 800 prosperous persons were exe cuted by Spanish government sup porters at Ronda southwestern Spain in the two weeks before the city was captured by fascists George Peterson an Englishman who arrived from that sector said children died of exposure ana uered city lived in the surrounding countryside inee Speech at Milwaukee dozen rear platform talks from his special train during his two day swing through Wisconsin were scheduled to supplement his major address dealing with social secur ity at Milwaukee Saturday night The republican nominees tariff speech delivered Thursday night before a crowd that filled the Min neapolis auditorium to overflowing pledged protection of the American market for the American farmer and promised that republicans are eoing to trade not against but in the interest of American produc His audience within the block long three tiered hall cheered re peatedly as Landon speaking de liberately said republican party x x does not condemn the principle of recip rocity It condemns only the kind of trade agreements now being made It condemns them because they are injurious to American cit izens and offensive to American xxx At a time like the present when economic nationalism is rampant we cannot afford to scrap our econ omic defenses We can be a good neighbor without giving away the latchkey to our Got Blind Landon asserted the administra tions reciprocal tariff program has delayed the recovery for our farm and has sold the American farmer down the In too many of these agree he continued we are the fellow who got the blind Scoring what he termed the con fused and destructive policies of the Landon said we are now one of the largest im porters not only of those things we do not produce but of those things By W EARL HALL After three days in rather close proximity to Gov Alfred M Lan don of Kansas my thoughts linger most on the terrific strain to which a presidential nominee is subjected under the American system of gov ernment I saw him first standing up in an automobile waving and smiling as he passed down the streets of our capital city to the plaudits of what was said by many to have been the largest crowd ever as sembled in downtown Des Homes At close range I watched him as he stood before the microphones in font of the state fair grandstands and read his agricultural program in a sincere unaffected manner with no pretenses to an oratorical ability he does not possess At closer range I watched him place his elbows on a table at a luncheon given for him and news papermen and farmers and look out over the packed Kirkwood dining room with a kindly smile Message of Appreciation Then for a half hour or so on his special train between Mason City and Albert Lea I sat in his immedi ate presence listening to the rear platform speeches chatting with hin taking his message of appre ciation to the people of Iowa for the wonderful reception you have accorded Through all of it there was a fe verish endeavor on the part of those about him to shelter him from the crush of the calls upon his physical and nervous energy But there can be no protection against demands such as those laid upon him More than once Tve thought of the remark made by a northwest Iowa editor some weeks ago speak in of Governor Landon got a half dozen fel lows just like him in our Rotary Not a Superman While that might not be literally true and probably isnt it is not an unpardonable misstatement AU Landon is no superman and there is no endeavor to build him into one in the popular thinking Its our studied said a Kansan traveling with the nominee that America is fed up on these so called supermen Havent we had ex perience with two of them in suc cession Alf Landon is Franklin D Roose velt in reverse in a very great de Tee He isnt a radio orator but he talks in terms that can be under stood by the American people Can Say But more important by far than a radio crooning ability is the ca pacity of Mr Landon to say yes and to say no at exactly the right time and place in his administra tion of public affairs And theres none in Kansas even among his political adversaries who will say that Alf bandon has been anything other than honest m bis public and private life Its his pride that his word is as good as his bond a pledge is something to be Subtracting whatever is necessary for the almost religious loyalty of Kansas republicans for their gover nor it can still be said that this Is a fair statement of the appraisal of the nominee by those nearest to him Newspaper correspondents on the train of whom there were about 25 were still discussing what they termed the bad taste of a poll of them purportedly made by an Iowa newspaper Trying to Be Funny We all thought it was an enter tainment one of the re porters from Chicago put it None of us imagined that we were being put on the spot Most of us were try ing to be funny in our There was also discussion of the reported cancellation of reservations on the train by an executive of the same newspaper based on a fear that it would too much identify the publication with the republican cause and detract from its stradd ling position Among the correspondents travel ing with Landon is James Wright Washington correspondent of the Buffalo News Mr Wright known as Lloyd and lived his boyhood at New Hampton and he had been regaling his fellow scribes with tales of his native states productive wonders Polls Are Discussed Polls being conducted by various agencies came in for a good bit of discussion by the correspondents too While generally speaking they VATICAN LIKELY TOTAKESTEPTO CURB COUGHLIN Prelates See Warning If He Continues to Attack F R VATICAN CITY said Friday they wouldnt be sur if the Vatican were obliged to give Father Charles E Coughlin a stronger warning than the one which appeared recently in Osser vatore Romano Such a step might be necessary

under the re buke which the Osservatore au thoritative Vatican newspaper ad ministered recently when it said it was not proper to attack constitut ed authorities much less so for a priest to do so The newest declarations thej added cannot be reconciled with the belief by authoritative Vatican And he added I cant that in every au jretthat thesespollshave rthoritier should o 4ftA are held in rather low esteem guesses by persons who arent even trained there was a dis position to give some weight to Lit erary Digests sampling of public opinion with respect to the presi dency I dont know what to think of one of them said to me The Digest poll gives Landon a lead in California and all the signs I have been able to read indicate that Cal ifornia is a Roosevelt state The re turns from New York indicate a lopsided Landon plurality but my newspapers trained observers back there report that its a tossup These variances from what seem to be established facts make me suspicious of the accuracy
