1.. SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBS-GAZETTE APRIL 4 1934 SEVEN MEN WHO OPPOSED WAR IN 1917 UNCHANGED Group All Those Left Now. in Congress of 56 Who Voted "No." By FRANK B. HARPER WASHINGTON, April 4. UP)--A corporal's guard of seven men who shouted "no" when a tide of "ayes" put America into the World war just 17 years ago would vote the san-.e way if the fateful roll were called today. The seven are all that remain in congress of the little band of 56 ·who voted for peace- and saw war roll up a thundering total of 455 -votes. The senate voted 82 to 6 for war on April 4, 1917 and the next day the house made a similar de- Vision by a vote of 373 to 50. Here's what the seven said today on the seventeenth anniversary of that roll call: World is Suffering. Senator Norris, independent republican of Nebraska, "Not only our nation but every civilized country in the world is now suffering from the results brought about mainly by the great World war. Our civilization is even now on the verge of destruction. "It has made hundreds of millionaires and millions of paupers. -It is still claiming its' toll from every home and every fireside in the land. It has created a privileged class who live in luxury upon the goTd coined from the life blood of our noblest citizens." Economically Secure. Senator Dill, Washington democrat who was a representative 1 years ago, "If I had it to do over Hundred times I would vote the same way. I am unalterably opposed ,, to sending men fight anybody. across the ocean to nt auyuwuj. *t, 0 f ·If we had stayed out of that war nobody can conceive the influence our peaceful example wou d have had on the world. We would have been economically secure instead of in the plight we are to- da Represeutative Britten (R. 111.): "When the Woodrow Wilson administration declared war on Germany some 17 years ago, it permitted the most colossal blunder not only in the history of America but for all time to come. CLAUDE IVERSON DIES IN DECORAH Former Chief of Police Is Survived by Widow and Two Children. DECORAH, April 4.--Claude Iverson, former chief of police at Decorah and son of Mrs. Anna Iverson of Cresco, died shortly before midnight Tuesday.

FLOYDlUXILIARY MEETS AT RUDD Addresses Given at County Gathering of Units by Henke, Bartell. RUDD, April 4.--The Floyd county American Legion auxiliary convention was held Tuesday evening at the opera house. Five of the six units were represented, about 75 persons being present.

Why not?" ' Representative Frear (R. Wis.) "Wars again threaten to engulf the world. I have urged a. constitutional amendment for a plebiscite on war before congress again declares war ajid a. further provision that no American citizens shall be conscripted to fight to Europe or Asia Serves as Warning. "War experts announce we wil soon be engaged in another war Reference made to recent wars is not to resurrect dead issues, bu serves 'as a warning against viciou: war propaganda that even sur rounds presidents and the congres when war hysteria prevents san reasoning." Representative K n u t s o n (fr Minn.): "Time has more than vindi cated the position taken by thos · of us who voted against America' entrance into the World war. "The constitution should I amended to provide that no declara tion'of war should be had until rat tioi ified by a vote of the people save ir case of invasion. The American peo pie would have voted overwhelm ingly. against war in 1917." Left Old Landmarks. Representative Lundeen (F. Minn.): "In April 1917, America de parted from the- old landmarks o Washington, Jefferson,' Jackson an -Lincoln--real s t a t e s m e n--who warned us to keep out of European- wars and foreign entanglements. "It is now universally agreed that we did blunder when we entered the war and it is universally agreed-- ·never again.'" A desire to change the constitution is now alive among this group of men who voted "no." The proposed amendment would require a popular vote before soldiers could be sent outside the United States to wage a war. Assured of 7 Votes. Only a few days ago a house judiciary subcommittee held hearings on Representative Frear's resolution to that end. While prospects that the proposal will emerge from committee are not bright, Frear is. assured of seven votes if it does. Among those who pleaded before the committee for its enactment was Former Representative Jeanette Rankin of Montana, first woman member'of congress. On that day 17 years ago she wept as she faced the stern discipline of Speaker Champ Clark for violating the rules against explaining a vote. But explain hers she did. She said she loved her country but could not vote for war. STATE VIEWS ON AAA DAIRY PLAN Approval, Opposition, Even Open Defiance Recorded by Producers. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Approval, opposition and open efiance were recorded Wednesday y the nation's dairymen to a plan or curtailed and controlled dairy ^reduction. This proposal, which the agricul ural adjustment administration Irafted as a solution to the milk jroblem, was met with general ap iroval by producers from Indiana Jlinois, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio. Voice Opposition. Dairvmen from Alabama, Cfcor gia, Florida, North and South Car ilina voiced considerable oppositioi :o the plan, contending there wa no surplus in their area. New Jersey has threatened cour injunction proceedings against th act if it is put into use. William B. Duryea, state secretary of agn culture for that state, asserted th cost of the proposed program i New Jersey would be $6,500,00 and added: 'Somebody will have to pay tha and it won't be the farmers." Go All Way. I. W. Heaps of Baltimore, secretary-manager of the Maryland State Dairymen's association, declared that "if the milk industry decides it'wants the AAA milk reduction plan, we should go all the way." A substitute proposal for increased consumption by the expenditure of 510,000,000 in advertising, was offered in Chicago by M. D. Munn, president of the National Dairy council. He asserted- that if every person GRAIN MARKET HAS COMEBACK Sudden Late Wheat Upturns Much More Than Offset Early Decline*. CHICAGO, April 4.

The rise of wheat, more than 2 ents from an early low point, was ssociated with the Thomas amendment to the Dies silver bill now be- 'ore a senate committee at Wash- ngton.

Receipts were cut down considerably, both here and at the principal western markets. Prices at the outside centers ruled from steady to 10 cents lower. Cattle ruled barely steady, due to disappointment over a slo~.v demand for dressed beef. Best yearlings topped at $7.50, although best lots were held at $7.65. 'the bulk of steers sold at $5.25 to $7. Receipts were comparatively modest. Sheep were again slow starting, but all indications pointed to a steady market. Best wooled lambs were held at $9.10 and above; but. buyers representing the packers were talking $8.50 downward. Supplies were held down sharply. Will Regnme Buying. CHICAGO, April 4. Iff)--The gov- enment will resume buying of hogs tomorrow for relief purposes, but the purchasing will be by some of the smaller packing companies and not by the "Big Four" which has done this previously. Contracts were awarded today in Washington to six independent packers to 'purchase hogs daily for the next 20 market days. The companies may purchase up to 50 per cent of their quota daily, unless notified to the contrary. MIDWEST HOGS Hog prices at midwest markets Wednesday: WATERLOO--Prime hogs 180 to 200 Ibs.

PHONE 888 Before It's Too Late Lamson Brothers Market Letter MARKET BEVfiEW Wheat--The grain markets displayed i ower range ot prices early under the influ- nce of scaltered liquidation in the May de- [verv but the selling movement soon ran ts course and an upward trend appeared due to the heller lone in slocHs and on auving by those holding to inflation ideas swing to developments in silver legislation oday at Washington. Early selling of wheat which carried prices off nearly a cent from ·esterday was on reports of fairly good, ains in parts ot the southwest and with i lltlle addllional molslure In seclions of the northwest However, western Kansas received relatively little precipitation. The market continued to improve with Blocks n Ihc lalter part of the session and the close v;as near the best levels ot the day. Short covering played Its part In the rally. Cash wheat moved" upward with fulures. Winnipeg was quiet wllhln .a narrow range. There was only a moderate export demand for Manitoba;. . Coarse Grains-Corn and other gra ns broke early with wheat, only to rally later with the closing tone strong. Eastern demand for com was fairly good, salts approximating 95.000 bushels. Bookings en- argcd over recent- days and amounted to 60.000 bushels. Oats sold at a new low on the current downturn early but re\.overel all losses. Seeding of oats has made fa'- ·· pood progress in parts of Illinois the few days whlla in other sections of the stale this work is being delayed by wet soil Should stocks hold slrong and inflation news be favorable, wheat may open higher tomorrow, otherwise the market will likely reflect the improvement in the crop situallon.
