Cffl--The fireworks.,of'the mayoralty campaign have begun. "Big Bill" Thompson/the "cowboy" mayor of .Chicago,-opened his campaign for .re-election with an attack on his democratic opponent, Anton J. Cermak, chairman of the Cook county board.. : Mayor Thompson, who recently i won the republican nomination over · Judge John H. Lyle and others, and the right to contest for the'world's fair mayorship, told a political auai- ence in his opening campaign speech' yesterday that Cermak hoped ti make himself a dictator in national democratic politics. . . Cermak, the mayor said, is a "tool'!' of Silas Strain, the international banker. ' · . - . , "If elected.-mayor," ..said ..Thompson*'"he will pick.the next governor H» will have the state delegation to the next, democratic .national convention. The people will not support a dictatorship in this country."

' · Perhaps it is significant, to men- tion-jiist one item, 0 that althp. the seventy-secorid congress will not meet until ,Dec. 7, except in the unlikely event -of an extra session, Representative Lovette is here already. · "There's a great deal of preliminary spade work to be done," he. pointed .out, "for there can be no" question that-'the right sort q£ a Muscle Shoals bill will have to be passed over the presidential veto. I can advantageously devote most of .the next few months to it, to avoid dillydallying when; the time comes. We shall have the necessary two- thirds majorities in both houses. I'm confident." ' · « « » 'THERE IS A no-compromise quaj- * ity about Representative Lovette. which should be'like a stiff hooker of something .highly stimulating to such Muscle Shoals advocates as Senator Norris, after their 10-year struggle to make a public service example for the whole country out of the great Tennessee river power project. " The Teunesseean, when I saw him a few days ago, had not had time to make a thorolstudy of the compromise which the congressional progressives actually did offer to the white house recently, and the rejection of which by Mr. Hoover was one of the final incidents preceding the legislators' adjournment. At any rate, the representative did not appear depressed by the circumstance of Its veto. r ' ' "Maybe!' he suggested, "we shall come closer to 100 per cent government ownership and operation as a result of having waited: Half a loaf is, better than death by starvation ' but the whole thing is preferable if delay only whets the.appetite." , - , » ' . » »'· ·· ., 1 pRJBPRESENTATrVE LOVETTE A * takes a real liberal's view of the : Muscle Shoals power situation. That is to say, while he naturally wants the power for the industrial development of the Tennessee valJey region he fully grasps the larger national issue involved and persistently emphasized by Senator Norris and his followers. The Nebraska senator's home bailiwick, it goes almost without stating, does not stand to profit directly from Shoals power, no matter how much of it there may be or how economically it may be generated. T h e ' Nebraskan's plan, quite frankly, has make the Tennessee river plant's prices a "yardstick," as he expresses it, by which to establish a fair schedule of rates for privately-produced power everywhere. With the plant surrendered to private operation, or even under a system of private marketing of its output, he contends that this would be impossible; only-the government, he insists, can be trusted" not i to "pad" figures up to an artificial level. " A LL OF WHICH,", agrees Repre- ·»· sentatlve Lovette, "seems reasonable, " A 3 all ' w ? 3e providence makes water' run down stream and over a dam, and to have a power corporation include gravity as part of its Investment Is ridiculous.' "Trustworthy statistics for 1929 the latest available, showing an average industrial power rate thruout the United States of 13.4'mills a kilowatt hour, against a 0-mill rate in Ontario, surely needs accounting for. . 6 "The Tennessee river region not only wants power but it wants It on the best terms possible--an argument for the governmental experiment from a purely local standpoint. "If, in addition to that, Muscle Shoals can be made to set a standard, lowering prices for the entire country, we have the public spirit to be glad of that also." \ MARCH 13 1931 thai: are "qood companions' for our DISTINCTIVE GOATS Variety is the keynote of the new dresses featured at Merkel's.
