O O j in cash in (EDITOR'S NOTK: This Is the first of a series of the, 1!)3G presidential campaign, Its issues and its personalities.) BY RICHARD HIPPEIJUEIJSER Associated Press Staff Writer NEW YORK. i/W--The new deal, iL«clf, is accepted widely as the basic issue before the American electorate in 1936. But before reaching a final decision on this, the voters must pass on many auxiliary and attendant issues--the huge new deal spending program, the resulting deficit, the monetary policy, the extension of federal regulation and control, and others. All these have their bearing on another factor in the campaign, about which much will be said--the status of recovery. Has the new deal brought about, helped along, or hindered recovery? Always Claims Credit. Historically, the administration in power always claims credit for any betterment in the nation's economic life. The Roosevelt administration claims such credit. It points to the increase in commodity prices, in stock levels, in industrial and building activity. It maintains its policies are responsible for this improvement. It contends the rulers of business and industry were forced to turn to Washington, to the Roosevelt administration, for leadership. It argues that the result has been well worth the price, not only in the extent of improvement, but in meeting the needs of relief. Has Different View. The opposition, also following historic precedents, sets forth a different view of recovery. Many business and industrial leaders voice the opinion that economic recovery came despite the new deal, that it is inevitable. Some of these contend the new deal created a fear among businessmen that retarded recovery. This view has been stated by Herbert Hoover. He has persistently maintained the nation was well on its wa.y to recovery in his admmisr tration. At St. Louis, last December 16, the former president declared: Turned Before Ki'lrction. "The truth is that the worldwide depression was turned in June-July of 1932. That was before the election of the new deal. That is supported by scores of.leading economists, businessmen and public leaders. * * * "After the election we began a retreat. Only in the United States was there an interruption.; We were strongest and should have led the van. And we lagged behind for two years * * * ." In the same speech Mr. Hoover likewise said fear was the cause of the bank panic of March, 1933. "There was no panic before the election in November. 1932." he said. 'They were frightened at the incoming new deal." Thus runs the thread of argument through countless other utterances, on both sides. The voters must decide. (Next--The nature of the new deal and its opposition.! Unoccupied Parsonage at Aredale to Need Repairs ARBDALE--The cold weather has caused the plaster to fall off in the Methodist parsonage, which has been empty this winter. Doors are warped and the building is off the foundation on the north side. It will cost about ?300 to fix up the building right. Last fall the parsonage was painted and prepared for the new pastor, and the one who came was an unmarried man. and lives at Hansell, where he holds services, too. Contribute for Tuition. IOWA FALLS--Seven Women's clubs of this city have contributed ?45 to a loan fund which will be used to help students attending Ellsworth junior college. The amount contributed to this fund will pay the tuition for one student one semester.

Reed said Monday. The reason, according to Reed, is that Iowa is on the down-grade of a weather cycle which may result in even colder winters for the next few years. Surrounded by a maze of figures, Reed discussed his study of 50 odd Iowa winters. "All I'll say is that at the present time, there's a tendency for Iowa winters to be colder," Reed said. Is Ultra Conservative. Most people can talk about the weather, but Reed, whose life work is diagnosing it, is limited in that privilege. He is ultra-conservative as far as making any long range prediction is concerned, but insists that there is nothing in the present picture to justify expectation of j mild winters in the future. That doesn't mean that Reed and other meteorologists can't guess one up on the elements. For 133-1-35. for instance, he predicted a mean temperature for the winter of !2fi.2 degrees. It turned out to be 23.8. Works W i t h Average. The DPS Moines weather bureau office compiles temperatures from 120 stations in Iowa. To study the of years, he must work with mean temperatures, which are the result when a winter's readings--numbering about 21,600--are averaged. Thera are so many points on a graph, connected by lines which soar or dip as the weather grows colder or warmer. Reed draws trial lines for future years, then compared them with actual temperatures. He doesn't often go far astray in his predictions. Kenur by Cycles. The ups and downs of the graph ughly designate the cycle. "But a cycle is not, as many people think, a regularly recurring rise and fall.'' he explained carefully. "They recur about every 12 to H years, and that difference is a big uncertainty." Though hesitant about weather "theorizing," Reed compares ap- weather coincide, sometimes vour forecast is knocked Clear Lake Girl Bride of Fred Luker Wedding Is Held at Zion Lutheran Church on Sunday.
