Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - May 13, 1937, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL XLIII FIVE CENTS A COPV ASSOCIATED PRESS AND UNITED PRESS FULL LEASED WIRES MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY MAY THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE 186 Borah Plan Radical One Favors Changing Leaders and Name of Party By CHARLES P STEWART 7 ASHINGTON Sena tor Borahs plan W to resuscitate the republican party is about like kill j ing a sufferer i from some in j curable disease i in order to cure him of it any way and then I naming some one else to take over his earthly l job on the the ory that the new incumbent is the same old indi i vidual That is to say the senator proposes to change the partys nanagement its prin ciples and iUname and then go ahead as jusl what the G O P used to be Thus transmogrified it might go ahead indeed But would it be what it used to be A change in name to be sure isnt altogether an original idea with Senator Other republicans have hinted at it too Dislike New Deal They would like to scoop in those old line democrats especial ly in the south who are bitterly dissatisfied with the new deal but they are skeptical that these folk at least in the south ever would ally themselves with anything bearing the republican designa tion For that matter theyre none loo sure that it is among the pos sibilities to persuade an unrecon structed southerner ever to be anything but a democrat while there remains a democratic party for him to to If only they could trick the new dealers into their democratic label Then in all livelihood a lot of old fashioned den ocrats wiLh no where else to go gravi tate to a party of their own pre ference with a new name The name democratic is what holds them against their other inclina tions the republicans are posi tive of that And they may be partly right Will K rep Name However thore is no chance that the new dealers will aban don their democratic name They recognize it as an asset to them just is the republicans are beginning perceive that theirs has become a liability to them very differently from conditions of oiJen not so many years olden either Accordingly it is up to the re publicans ii anyone to rechris ten themselves If they do not do it nobody will So Borah is ot so out of touch with some G P sentiment in suggesting a nov republican name tl will not actually repel if it doe not capture anti new deal der ocratic votes Antagonizes Hamiltonians When he urges a new manage ment naturally he antagonizes the Jorm D M Hamiltonian regime Still that does not so much matter Chairman Hamilton of the G O P national committee is ac cused by many republicans of having bungled his task they are disposed to indorse a change in managerial methods They do not want hire on the radio They consider his matrimonial troubles a politically bad thing But when it comes to reformed policies The republicans whom Senator Borah criticizes have been too conservator He wants them to liberalize themselves gathering the conservative democrats into their fold Program Is Radical Why Because says the sena tor new deal democracy is too radical Yet the senators program is more radicalism Conservatism overdid itself in Senator Borahs opinion Now he is disposed to let radi calism overdo itself It is the old homeopathic doc trine of Let likecure like Can homeopathy be depended on to hold good Anyway a queer way to get conservative democrats is to offer them a republican or exrepub lican platform of the radical tvpc

with the British government au thoritative sources disclosed Thursday is for recognition of Mrs WalKs Warfield his brideto be as her royal highness the duchess of The duke it was learned will not even be content to have Mrs WarfieJd become the duchess ol So heated has the dispute be tween the former monarch and the government become that Prime Minister Stanley Baldwins cabinet Thursday reviewed the whole question Having yielded to Windsors de mands that Mrs Warfield become a duchess the ministers stood pat against allowing her to be ad dressed her royal it was reported Both Sides Adamant A source close to the govern ment disclosed that negotiations have been going on for feme time in an effort to bring both adamant sides to a compromise But Wind sor they said is insistent that his bride be called her royal high ness the government that she not be so titled Secret ambassadors from the these sources said have argued and pleaded with the duke but have been unable to con vince him that he alone is entitled to the distinction of being a royal highness because of his royal blood Mrs Warfield they are said to have contended has no such claim because she is a commoner and has not the faintest hope fcr succession to the throne either directly for herself or through any children she might bear Question of Pride Why Windsor is so determined that his future duchess be a royal highness is not known Some informed circles however believe it is a simple question of pride on his part They point out that having both the duke and duchess called royal highnesses would dispel any suggestion that once married they are not of the same regal rank The governments insistence on cutting Mrs Warfields title short after the expected June wedding on the other hand is believed to be based on the intricate question of precedence Difference in Rank In the world of royalty a few words more or less make a vast difference in rank Until now former King Ed ward VIII is understood to have had the backing of the royal fam ily in general But a rift between him and some of his relatives K said to be widening now over the three words her royal high Some of these relatives resent what they deem be
