EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 30 1936 IOWA DEMOCRATS READY TO PLEDGE ROOSEVELT STRENGTH CONVENTION TO BE HELD FRIDAY Delegates to Be Elected to National; Biermann to Be Keynoter. DES MOINES, UP)--Iowa democrats are prepared in their state convention here this week to put their official stamp of approval on the national new deal administration and elect a national convention delegation pledged to President Roosevelt. Administration indorsement will be the theme of resolutions placed before the state convention on April 3, following the example of the party's county conventions recently in reaffirming faith in the national leaders and policies. To Elect Delegates. Election of the 22 delegates the state will send to the national session will precede action on the resolutions. Party leaders, who expect the meeting to run smoothly, are confident the Iowa delegation will be instructed definitely to support the president for renomination. The state convention also will hear a keynote address by Congressman Fred Biermann of Decorah and an afternoon speech by the permanent chairman it will elect. Congressman Guy Gillette of Cherokee has been recommended for the post. Contrast to G. O. P.

Dickinson for the presidential nomination on a. first ballot and then swing to Governor Landon of Kansas if the lowan appears to have no chance of success. Democratic State Chairman Ed Birmingham has predicted a "record state convention attendance," with about 700 more delegates than the 1,800 apportioned.
