MONDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1932 BLYTIIEV1LLR, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Old Tammany and the New Tim Has Changed His Strides But He's Same Under the Skin. Tammany Hall's .rise to influence in national political affaiis is sketched in the folloninf article, the 1-iM uf three in which «ene Cuhn his written for Courier Xcv.i, and NBA Sfrvlfe "The Tale of the Tammany TiKtr." By GKNE COHN NBA Service Writer NEW YORK.—Tourists, viewing the old Tammany Hall for the first time, would invariably gasp-, "whai! That?" For what they saw was a dingy, down-al-ihc-heel looking building in Fourteenth Street, flanked on one hand by sarish posters of girl shows and on the other by cli?ap shops. After all the tale.s of graft and boodle and ill-gotten - wealth. a visitor expected some hint of ,; glitter. But a weather-slalncd In-i'. dian, staring down from his niche, - provided Ihe only decoration. ^ The rise of Al Smilh. long a favored son, was credited with causing the Tiger to change its habitat and move into the Colonial-fronted spcii on Union Square. A "New Tammany'' had been announced with George Olvany as the leader and a new coterie of advisors and wire pullers. And a new, highly respectable looking home was part of the program. The shape and coloring of the bricks, for Instancy, were idenlicnl with those used in Thomas Jefferson's birthplace. Wandered From I Air TAMMANY HAD HALTED on the East Side of Fifth Avenue liowcver, having vowed never to cross that, artery, but always to cling to the district 1 ; of the working many, the small shop-keep? and the poor man. Yet, four years ago. the Tige did wander beyond Fifth Avenue It ventured far afield and .foun itself definitely in the national po litlcal arena. This was because A Smith had been nominated as •presidential candidate. Once more, but more furtively Tammany stalks the background o a presidential issue. Tammany' leader John Curry and Brooklyn Leader John McCooey had gone to the Chicago convention, feeling Ihat their 95 New York votes could lie things, up. put they djcin't. V Franklin" D. Roosevelt was named. 'Jimmy Walker, M Smilh, Curry and'McCcoey exited, sulking. Then Roosevelt snapped his own whip at the Tiger by forcing Mayor Walker into a corner, and .subsequent resignation. With a Democratic party split, it seemed doubtful whether Governor Roosevelt could carry his own state.

Krepfnc Them Oronlnj New forest planting totaled more thun 155,000 acres In United States during 1031. This brings the total of artificially reforested lands to 1,353,394 acres. Much as Thomas Mast, the fam;d caricaturist of Harper's Weekly, lortraycd the Tammany braves creeping upon the While Hoiis? In. 1871 during Grant's administration, so the threa present-day T.im- iinny chieftains pictured below we nt to the stnte Democratic convention nt Albany, N. Y.. tlie oilier 'Jay, to make their inftamce felt in the coming presidential election. I*lt to right are John H. McOoa:y, powerful Brooklyn leader; Grand Sachem John K. Curry, and Jo!m Theofcl, Queensbarouyh chieftain. Profitable Meeting; BUT THE HANDSHAKE exchanged with Al Smith at the Albany state convention was credited being worth a million votes—at least. Even then, the Tiger growled. For Roosevelt again cracked the. whip, with Sm!Tn as ringmaster. Roosevelt insisted on dictating his own state ticket, and his candidate for the next governor was Lieutenant Governor Lehman. Tammany Leader Curry's candidate was snowed under and Curry was routed when Roosevelt openly rebuker Curry's leadership. From Brooklyn, fast growing in Turn- many strength, cama a revolt, of dis- j tricl leaders to Roosevelt. McCoocy,' although allied with Curry, had to follow his delegates, Tammany apiwsrrd to face the biggest split in many a year. But anodyne arrived when Curry's choice for mayor of New York \vns accepted. This temporary truce, whatever - Its undercurrent tumblings, is Hte- ly to affect the history of the United States for the next four years if a New York state victory tosses ' -. the election to Governor Roosevelt For a closer peep at the dramatis personae — if 5'°" waited into Tammany Hal] nnd asked for John Curry you would meet a white-haired, man, with shrewd eyes, wearing a dark suit and a striped four-in-hand tie. He does not belong to the spectacular school of "Tammany bosses." interest and fatherly attention. * » * Another Leader Rises McCOOEY, even an olrler veteran, who looks like Santa Clans without a beard, has become a real power in the growing population of Brooklyn. Shifting of thousands of workers and small Job holders "across the bridge" gave him a vast new voting machine. An old worker with the Charles F. Murphy re gime in Tammany, McCooey loomed large in (lie Tammany picture when he brought JoJin Ilylan over from Brooklyn and groom?d him for mayor of New York. Leader Murphy accepted Hylan and McCcoej had a discovery to his credit. McCooey has been closer to those "in 'the Hall" than Curry. Curry's usefulness, however, is political legend. Trte fifth district over which he ruled as leader, hold: the record for getting Jobs for res i dents—and he was one figure wh did not. depend upon patronage for these jobs. If John Patrick O'Brien becomes the next mayor of New York, Curry's status—whlcr> lost ground at Albany—will be much sounder. So the Tiger, slightly hurt here and there, lies licking its wounds —and waiting, for it still roams the political jungles.
