PLYMOUTH, DIES Stroke Is Fatal to Builder; Survived by Widow and Six Children. PLYMOUTH, March ,16.--A. J.

He is survived by his wife, six children, Mrs. Grace Trevett and Mrs. Henry Riggins, both of Mason City, and Louis J., Albert H., Ivan F. and Ruth of.

Nevertheless,, it ts the most promising way for voters-who object to present conditions, economic or alcoholic, to change them. * * * TTOW little there is of the get-toil gether spirit between the two elements was demonstrated recently by a couple of important political gatherings in Washington--the regular democratic national committee meeting just' after congress adjourned and the more recent conference of partisanly assorted progressive leaders. Considering that both were called to discuss plans for putting a new tenant in the white house, it would seem reasonable to have expected some indications of a disposition to co-operate toward accomplishing it. On the contrary, it is easier to think of ideas each has in common with Mr. Hoover than they appeared to have with one another. * * * D ESPITE formidable dissent in its own ranks, the group in demor cratic control obviously is wet and Mr. Hoover is supposed to be dry. But then, Mr. Hoover is conservative. Evidently the democratic managers are conservative likewise. Mr. Hoover's conservatism is anathema to the p r o g r e s s - ives. Still, he is dry. Most of the progressives, are dry also. Dry conservatism is in 100 per cent accord neither with wet conservatism nor dry progressive-ism but it is in 50 per cent ! accord with either one of them separately. Wet conservative and dry progressive disaccord is 100 per cent. . * ' * · . ^X7ET ,progressive-ism would off- Y ' set dry conservatism-if there were more of the former, but there isn't. This is well exemplified in the senate. · Senators Borah, Brookhart, Cutting-, Frazier, Howell, Norbeck, Norris, Nye, Schalt and William H. McMaster and W. B. Pine, \vhose senatorial terms have but .just ended (republicans). Senators Barkley Dill, McKellar, Elmer Thomas and Thomas Walsh (democrats) and Senator Shipstead (farmer-laborite) all are more or less progressive and all are bone dry. The wet progressive line-up cannot possibly be stretched to include more than Senators Elaine, Couzens, Johnson, LaFollette, Dave Walsh and Wheeler--and of these Senator Couzens',- Senator Johnson's and Senator Walsh's progressive-ism is erratic, Senator LaFollette is not a very militant wet and Senator Wheeler only recently flopped from the dry side. * » * f\f DRY conservatives, on the v other hand, the list will run to at least 40--old stand-bys like Senator Fess, the G. O, P.'s national chairman, and Senator Robinson of Arkansas, prohibition democracy's 1932 presidential hope. Wet conservatives are no rarities, either. There are not as many of them as there are of the drys, but approximately there are half as many--Senator Tydings, the wet bloc's leader, and Senator Dwight W. Morrow, to mention a couple of names that everyone will recognize. This does not account 'for quite the entire senate (a few of its members are rather difficult to classify, either economically or wet-and-dry!y) but it is fairly representative. 1 -CUAS.

Mtsde by Kellogg in Battle Creek, THUS the senate (and what is true I of the senate probably is not far from true of the country) in effect splits three ways, wetly and drly, conservatively and progressively, into: 1. Conservative drys. 2. Conservative wets. 3. Dry progressives. The progressive wets' number is negligible. In fact Senator Elaine nlone really is as wet as he is progressive and as progressive as he is wet. The conservative drys may not be : n a majority over the conservative wets and the progressive drys .combined, but they certalntly are stronger than either of the two classifications divided. If they were to unite for a season there could be a show-down, but they are a pair of mighty unlikely-looking factions to form a partnership.
