MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 13 0 1937 THREE SPECULATE ON LANDON STAND Express Surprise at ness of Remarks at Lincoln Dinner. NEW YORK, (/P)--Alfred M. Landon's plea for nonpartisan consideration of issues involx r ing the "whole future of our country" was studied Saturday by republican leaders for some indication oE his attitude towards the supreme court controversy. Some leaders who heard the titular head of the republican party address the Lincoln day Dinner of the National Republican'club Friday night expressed surprise at the mildness oÂ£ his remarks. Others said he merely was adhering to a course outlined by re' publican strategists to keep organization of the court a bi-par- tisen issue. They recalled Hie statement of the party's chairman, John D. M. Hamilton, after a conference with the presidential candidate' here Thursday that the "issue (the supreme court) is so fundamental that there is no opportunity for anything but nonpartisan debate." Less Than 500 Words. The smiling Kansan took less than 500 \yords for his message to the fifty-first annual Lincoln Day dinner, his first address in Nev/ York since he wound up his un- successlul bid for the presidency in Madison Square Garden. He 'extolled Lincoln and closed with the following document which was interpreted as directed at President Roosevelt's -proposals to increase the membership oÂ£ the nation's highest court: "When I accepted the invitation to come to this meeting 1 planned to make a few informal remarks to you as a republican talldng to fellow republicans. "Since then events have occurred in our national life which make it out of place for me to talk on a party basis. The issues raised are greater than any parly. They concern the whole of us. Worthy of Deliberation. "They are worthy of unhurried deliberation by congress. They will not wisely yield to partisan discussion either within or without the congress. The whole future of our country is involved. "Upon these issues I have strong convictions but ! shall not avail myself of this occasion to discuss them further. "In the past it has been a boast in this country that politics ends at the water's edge. While this grave matter, which goes to the very foundation, of,our government, is pending, let us resolve, each and everyone of us, to prove ourselves 'Americans' by doing our best to end politics within the water's edge. "And with humbleness of heart let us pray to the God of our fathers that now, as in the days of old, He will be 'for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.' " Voice Breaks Slightly. Hie voice broke slightly as he spoke the last words and swung away from the microphones. For a moment there was utter silence as if the crowd did not realize he had concluded his speech; then applause. Senator H. Styles Bridges, of 'New Hampshire, following Laddon, asserted the move to reorganize the supreme court "confirmed the veracity of republican speakers who iast fall were scoffed at by countless administration spokesmen stating that no such move on Hie courts was contemplated." The young New Englander asserted "this move attempts to tear down the very foundations upon Â·which American freedom has been built. "To those who have preceded, but above all to those who wj follow us, we have the solemn duty to defeat this proposed outrage." Concert by S.U.I.

Fox Bounties to Pay for Whittemore Feed WHITTEMORE -- One hundred men will be needed for the next big drive for foxes. Plans are being made to cover for sections.

Statehouse Highlights DES MOINES, (ffj--The f i f t h veck of the Iowa legislature cnd- d up as the banner postponement veelc ol the session. Nearly every problem oE importance which Â·cached the floor oÂ£ the legisla- ure was put off, either from the 'irst to the last oÂ£ the week or until some time in the future. First victim- of the postponement spree was the mortgage noratorium bill passed a week ago n different forms in the two louses. It failed to come before .he assembly until Friday morning because oÂ£ inability oC the -first conference committee to make up 'ts mind. HOMESTEAD . . . The next najor problem of the week--the lomeslead tax "exemption bill-reached the senate for debate Thursday but lawmakers decided to postpone any action until next week. The same thing happened with the resolution to investigate the old age pension situation in the state. The house passed the pro- posal, bill the senate deferred action until next Monday. WORRY . . . Some lawmakers wore frowns because, they said, the legislature may drag out he- yond the traditional 100 days. Two years ago the house and senate, for I'l days, kept clocks of the two chambers stopped. One group, insistent that lawmakers avoid another 114 day session, voted down attempts to squeeze extra half days from the legislative time. A proposal to adjourn until Monday afternoon was nipped in the bud. . Under way was n move to short- on the spring plowing recess, which often lasts 12 days. A few house members said they will oppose an extended vacation in mid- session. FUN . . . The senate still has lun vith its members. This week most if the floor banter was aimed at O. J. Kirkcteg (R.) ot Bedford. However, Howard Baldwin (D.) if Cascade, and M. X. Geske (D.) f McGregor, the two senate bach- lors, came in for a few licks. Once a member suggested the two men PURSE . . . The legislature next week will receive from the governor and comptroller the biennial budget bill. Both officers have dropped hints they will ask the assembly to boost the budget ante. Guessers on the fringe oÂ£ budget hearings have snid they expect the recommendations total to be in the neighborhood oÂ£ 18 million dollars a year. The present budget calls ' for expenditures of about 15 millions. The governor paved the way for such a proposal in his inaugural and subsequent addresses.
