DICKINSON GETS DEMOCRAT REPLY ·fobinson Says Hoover Would Win If Nation Wanted to Go Back. WASHINGTON, (.-'I'l -- Senator Robinson (D.-Ark.) told the senate Wednesday that if the country preferred conditions of three years ago to those of today, it meant not the election of some new republican prospect but "the re-election of Hoover." His assertion was made during a heated exchange with Senator Dickinson (R-lowa) over new deal policies. Robinson asked Dickinson pointedly if he preferred the "prosperity" of March 4, 1933, to present conditions, and when Dickinson replied that he considered the present condition "dangerous," the Arkansau added: Prefers Old Conditions. "That, I call to the attention of hearers, means that he prefers the conditions that prevailed under Hoover to the ones now. That is the issue I desired to make. "If the country accepts the viewpoint of the senator from Iowa and believes that they would rather have Hooverism than Rooseveltism --if they believe the senator from Iowa is correct and that conditions now are less prosperous than they were on March 4, 1933--it logically means not the elevation to power o my good friend, my first choice for the republican nomination, the sen ator from Iowa, (he bowed low to Dickinson and the lowan returned the bow), nor the elevation of mj second choice, the senator from Michigan, Mr. Vandenbcrg (he bow ed toward that senator's scat, bu Vandenberg was absent), but i means the' re-election of Herber Hoover." "Fight Over Mess." Quickly Dickinson replied: "As a matter of fact, we are no going to fight over the battle of 193! the year 1936. We are going ti fight over the mess which the pres ent administration has made of th government since it came into pow er." Dickinson, who has announce' himself a candidate for the repub lican presidential nomination, start cd the Roosevelt third anniversar debate with a. declaration that th new deal started off wih "unifie popular suppor" yet today the "er tire nation is indignant and disi lusioned" and its "faith has been be trayed." He Accepts Challenge. As soon as- the lowan complete the reading of his prepared speec n administration policies, Robinson raped to his feet and said: "1 accept the challenge and main- ain with fervor that, in spite of all le senator has said, conditions ave so markedly improved that ven the political blii d ought to be ble lo take note of the improve- ent," Ridiculing republicans, including enator Vandenburg of Michigan, or proposing a coalition of repub- cans and disgruntled democrats, obinson inquired whether these epublicans were "ready to call lemselvcs democrats." He quoted Charles D. Hilles. re- ubican national committeeman rom New York, as saying- "we'll do nything you ask except change our ame." "Kaw and Blustery." Dickinson said the Roosevelt re- ime was inaugurated on a "day hat was raw and blustery" and "it as been raw and blustery ever ince. with the barometer falling teadily." "What ravages a short three ears have made in the embattled osts of Jcffersonian democrats," he dded. "They basked for a little ii» he president's radiant smile. Many f them now belong to the admin- slration's legion of 'forgotten men.' As we approach November's -olemn referendum, how frayed and Irooping are the banners which mce held aloft so confidently!
