Mason City Globe-Gazette MARCH 5 1931 MOST MEMBERS HEAD FOR HOME Unusually Large Number of Congressmen Held in ·Capital. WASHINGTON; March 5. UP-Free from parliamentary worries for nine months, most members of congress were hoineward bound today, but an unusually large number were detained in Washington. The meeting, of the democratic national committee, the approaching progressive conference and investigations, delayed most of-theso. Vice President Curtis was one 'of the first to leave 'the capital. He departed for a 10 day vacation at Miami; Republican Leader Watson of the senate is remaining here for the present. . Democratic,Leader\Robinson alao is staying for a couple of weeks, playing golf, attending ttie democratic meeting .and sitting in on an invesigating; committee. ' Senator Borah, Idaho, will remain probably until the hot weather arrives. ' . :. Senator Norris, Nebraska, will stay here until after, the progressive conference next week and then return to*Nebr'aska. Senator Fess, Ohio, probably will alternate between his home and hi a job as chairman of the Republican National committee. Speaker Longworth plans to staj in the capital, until May. ' Democratic Leader Garner of has already left for his home in Uvalde, Texas. HOOVER PRESTIGE UNHURT BY VOTE (Continued From Page 1). 53 republicans, 42 democrats and one fatroer-labbrite. Of the republicans, however, at least 15 have been off the G. O. P. reservation more or less of the time. But the house of representatives has been truly republican. Allowing for three vacancies caused by deaths, its G. O. P. membership pn adjournment date was 266, against 165 democrats and one farmer-Iaborite. With a margin of 97 the administration ought, according- to all rules,' to have been unbeatable on any imaginable issue. Nevertheless the representatives voted 328 to 79 to pass the veterans' bill over the presidential veto. · * "» * TTAD it been any other bill, a result * * like this would have counted as an utter knockout of white house authority. But had it been any other bill, it wojuld not have happened. .The explanation is that'everyone recognizes the impossibility of defeating any measure that· a.consid- erable- line-up of ;bld soldiers appear to want to -have passedMihtil they have been thinned to the present- day number of Civil war veterans. There are too mnay, veterans, with too many friends, for any politician to dare to risk antaognizing. Consequently, in casting their ballots to disregard the ' presidential veto, all the lawmakers turne-1 appealing, apologetic eyes toward the white house, virtually saying: "You know,. Mr. President, that we have to do this." · ' : ' . - · · » * » , · THE president, somehow, is differ- L 'ently situated. Senators and representatives doubtless are right in believing that it would' be political death for them to disgruntle the old soldiers. Why is it, then, that the president can veto a veterans' bill and Bret awav with it? President Coolidge vetoed one, with no signs of the slightest bad effect upon his popularity. What the effect will. be upon President Hoover's rem'alns to be seen, but political 'opinion plainly inclines to the view that he acted wisely. * *' * PERHAPS the answer to the puzzle is this: , The veterans who really want money now (and would have made a fuss about It at the polls, had the bill gone into the discard) do not care how they get it, so long as'they get it. Assuming that it is forthcoming,, as it will be~, it is immaterial to : them whether or not tlia measure was vetoed at one stage in the proceedings. Thus the president gets credit for his veto from those who thot the bill deserved to be vetoed and tin the others-are unconcerned; know nothing- about the veto, maybe, or will speedily forget it. As for the congressmen who voted to over-ride the, president. "Well, they showed their devotion ' to the veterans, anyway." . * * * f~\N THE other hand, suppose, after *J congress had passed the bill a*hd the president had vetoed it, con-' grjess had NOT passed over his veto. Then there WOULD have been a rumpus.^ , The veterans (the ones, who -wanted their money) would have blamed the .president for 'his veto and congress for not over-riding "it, the country generally w.ould have sympathized with the veterans and a lot of political careers probably would be blighted next election day. As it is-- · The president, with his veto, 'wins praise for his economic soundness. Congress demonstrates its enthusiasm for the ex-service men. The veterans receive their 50 per cent in hand. , It la not a clash between the executive and the legislative branches of the government. It Is a beautiful demonstration 'of the co-operative principle.' SHE'S PROUD OF CHAPLIN No .one in London awaited. a . visit from Charlie Chaplin, noted screen- comedian, more anxiously than this old lady. She is Grannie Tricks, 79 years old, who was nurse to ChapUn, when he was a child. She is proudly displaylne a photo of Chaplin, shown inset, to a youngster. The comedian has received a tremendous welcome In England on his first visit to his homeland In six years. · At Mason City's THEATERS Some of the foremost names in modern music were closely bound with the filming of "New; Moon/' Metro - Goldwyn - Mayer's screen adaptation of the stage musical- drama success, which is now playing 1 , at the Cecil theater thru Friday. Lawrence Tibbett and Grace Moore, co-stars o£ the picture, need no introduction, Tibbet having achieved a sensational success in his first screen effort, "The Rogue Song-," and Miss Moore having scored equally in her talkie debut' as Jenny Lind of "A Lady's Morals." .The names connected with the composing, .arranging and orchestration, end of '.the musical:.production are, equally 'm'eritorious.L These?, include Sigmund Romberg-and Oscar Hammers tein who wrote the original score including the memorable "Lover Come Back to Me;" and Herbert Stothart and Clifford Grey, remembered for their songs in "The Rogue Song" and "Devil May Care," who have again contributed two outstanding songs, "What Is Your Price, Madame?" and "The Farmer's Daughter." "One. Heavenly. Night" is the title of Samuel Goldwyn's newest production, based on. an original,story by Louis Bromfield, the noted autor. in which Evelyn I/aye, John Boles, Leon Errol and Lilyan Tashman appear.
