Democratic tickets, voiced those sentiments hundreds of times in speeches throughout the state duriner the He won the Democratic, nomination! opposition to me New Deal machine; lost the Republican nomination to ulius P.

La Follette and of Mr.fHeil. Yet, with a majority of the votes in, the primary election, Bob Henry himself became the Victim of the very calamity that beset the Democratic and Republican candi-r dates in 1934 and His strength was divided in the primary, as had been his predecessors' of the old party slates in the general elections. That brought about a situation identical to, what the coalition movement was first- intended to avoid, namely, a three-cornered contest by which Gov. La Follette would be returned to office with minority of. the votes.

It was the contention of B6b Hen, ry that La Folletism and radicalism could, not: be vanquished hr-a- three-way fight. Anti-La Follette forces, he declared, must, be mustered behind a single candidate. Bob Henry, showed late Saturday that lhe still believes the movement is bigger than any candi- He announced his withdrawal as the Democratic candidate for governor and urgdjd his primar election supporters to' vote "for Julius P.

Should that organization nominate a candidate to replace Henry" in the governorship election it will prove its unwilling- ness to effectively curb La Folletteism in Wisconsin and in the nation. The only way in which this state can be rid of the political adventurers grouped about the La Follette brothers is for the majority opposed to this self-seeking dynasty to unite their strength behind one candidate," Mr. nenry saia. "Twice Philip La Follette has won, the governorship with a minority votebecause the majority was divided between Republicans and It is my firm conviction that he will win again both Julius Heil and Bob Henry remain in the race.

"I shall stand aside in fairness to the Democratic party, that it shall not have to go into this campaign handicapped by confusion; in fairness to the coalitionists, that they need not divide themselves into two camps in fairness to the Mr. Henry pointed put that, he was not the endorsed candidate of the Democratic party in the primary, but that he had been "honored with the nomination for governor." He declared that he was "deeply and humbly grateful for tftis expression of confidence" and added: "If there be a Rebuke in this for -those who would use the Democratic party for their own selfish purposes, let them, for the good of the party; take the lesson to heart.

Part on Hitler Bares His Soul to Mail Scribe New Ward Price, British war correspondent, who is Adolf Hitler's friend and supporter, and who has traveled, lunched, dined and visited with him off and on for years, is England's 'most authentic news source as to Der Fuehrer's Lord Rothermere's paper, the London Daily Mail, which employs Mr. Price, has been scooping the ears off the other London sheets on Hitler stories. Mr. Price previously has related how he and Lord Rothermere were two of four guests at Mr. Hitler's first formal dinner party af ter he seized power.

That was December 19, 1934. It was about this time that Lord Rothermere, reaching 80 per cent of the British reading pub lic, through his newspapers and press as sociations, began his unceasing campaign for fascism in Encr- land. A third guest at the dinner was E. W. D.

Tennarit, of the An- a glo-German fellowship, a fellowship which Lord Rothermere and Mr. Price have diligently fostered, with their Apologia Fascisma. Mr. Price, educated at Cambridge university, is a seasoned and richly garlanded British war correspondent. As foreign correspondent of the Daly Mail, he was the Turkish army in the first Bdkan war; he was an official correspondent at the Dardanelles, he' was with the British army at Salonka.

He has long- been a quasi-official reporter for the British empire. He writes concisely, clearly and expertly, with a keen a-lertness for revealing little human touches and with little concern for the dry impend arables of political or economic theory. His book, "I Know These Dictators," published in this country last year, was, in the view of this writer, big news, anil should have stirred up (CcstmcM tr. last F2, Crd cel.)

In one of the most thorough, far- reaching and important documents on public affairs presented to th citizens and taxpayers of the state in many years, a special sub-committee working under the Wisconsin section of the Great Lakes Cut-Over Area conference recommends changes, innovations and improvements which will go a long way toward revolutionizing Wisconsin's long established methods of local government. The report, long and detailed, can be divided into four, important parts, summarized here: 1. Town Refbrm.i The committee report demands' a-mendment of confusing and lenient state laws now covering the organ ization of townships, and recorn mends these minimum requirements 36 sections of land, $400,000 assessed valuation and 200 electors. It -also recommends a. mandatory pro vision for redisricting all towns to obtain minimum requirements, and the dissolution of 8 villages with less than 150 population.

Calling attention to the fact that only four other states have Wisconsin's dual some critics call it archaicsystem of town and county government, the experts proposed removing town government's most important activity, road maintennce and construction; and its transfer to the county. "Originally Wisconsin had no lesser units of government than the county Counties" now have effective organization for highway conStruc-tionand maintenance, and own power equipment amLwell equipped shops for its repair. If the counties are" qualified to maintain state highways, why should they not maintain town roads?" the committee asked. It suggested that provision be made for county maintenance of town roads with 80 per cent, of funds, the remainder to be spent on construction projects under county supervision. 2.

County Improvements. The group also examined the fis cal picture of Wisconsin's 71 county governments, and particularly those trouble-ridden 26 in the cut-over "problem area" of the in north and central Wisconsin. Out of the study ame these proposals: county assessment and collection of taxes, in order to help equalization between towns and to economize in administrative costs; consolidation of county offices, sich as clerk and clerk of court, treasurer and register of deeds, prosecutor and coroner, in the sparsely settled, low valuation counties. 3.

SKETCH OF ALEXANDER WILEY Alexander Wiley of Chippewa Falls, is the Republican party's choice for United States Senator, is fifty-four years of age. He has a wife and four children. Wherever he goes, they know him as "Alec." He is in the prime of life.

He says he hangs onto nobody's political coattail. He believes in discussion of principles rather than personalities. He is not a politician. He has not been feeding at I the public trough. Heis one of the common people that Lincoln said God must have loved because he made so many of them.

He comes from Norwegian stock. Before he was born, his father's name was changed from Vila to "Wiley. Alec knows the nroblems of the state and nation, having' himself learned them in the school of "hard knocks." As a young man, he worked in the sawmills of the north at 15c an hour. He worked liis waythroiigh college. He knows the farmer's problems, having owned arid operated a farni for twenty-four years that his fath eX and mother owned before him.

He now operates that farm in Barron county. -He is not a theorist about' the farmer's troubles and cares. In his homeTxwn of Chippewa Falls," he Has become associated with small He knows the problems of business. He has the confidence of folks who know him. He would make a good public servant in Washington.

A man with judgment; one who would not waste the people's money or dissipate the people's faith and resources. A psychologist says that the well-to-do folks do a lot more fretting and stewing than the poor. Certainly. All the poor have to worry about is how soon the government is going to send them some of the rich fellow's money.
