Death Knell is sounding for the old guard that s the prediction made by the Herald s state news writer the material contained herein does not necessarily conform to the editorial policy of this paper. Weekly news release of the Iowa press association the old guard is dead Long live the new that might be the cry ringing Forth if the nomination of Wendell Willkie had taken place in England rather than the United states As a paraphrase of the King is dead Long live the King whether the sentiment was voiced in those words or not it certainly was the thought of a huge majority of rank and file republicans and even democrats when the nomination of Willkie was made certain. The old guard of the National party took a humiliating she lacking in front of the whole people administered by the people and the old guard of Iowa politics fell with it. The Iowa old guard fell because it backed the candidacy of senator Robert a. Taft the old guard candidate against people s Choice Willkie. Irving w. Barney Myers chairman of Iowa Young republicans and a Dele Gate at Large to the convention sounded the death Knell of the old guard of Iowa when he stepped to the microphone on the fifth ballot at Philadelphia and demanded a Roll Call of the Iowa delegation. When Myers a Young attorney decided on the step he was of the belief that he was placing his entire political future in jeopardy for it was clearly evident that the old guard headed by National committeeman Harrison e. Spangler would rather not have been polled. In fact it was made Plain to Barney that he was making a mistake a mistake in the mind of the old when Barney sat Down after asking for the Roll Call he was a hero in his Home state the old guard the Barney forced the hand of Spangler who voted for Taft when it was evident that the state s sentiment was for Willkie. Old friends of Spangler who fought for his re election to a third term As National committeeman Are now turning against him because they feel that he did not truly represent the sentiment in Iowa. They can excuse the Iowa delegation for missing the boat by not throwing its entire support to Willkie on the important fifth ballot but can accept none for the delegation s failure to vote for Willkie on the sixth when it was Plain that he was to be the nominee. Feeling. Nomination of Willkie has caused a much broader smile to crease the faces of state House office holders than would have been displayed had the possibility of going into a fall Campaign with Taft at the head of the ticket come True. One prominent elective official stated to the press that he was ready to pack his bags and go Back into business if Taft had been the nominee so certain was he of his defeat in that event. Now he said he feels that the republicans will not Only carry the state but they will recapture the White House. Taxes.
