22 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 17 1931 BIG BILL'S WHOLE CABINET RESIGNS Political Gesture Made to Give Chicago Mayor " Free Hand. CHICAGO, March 17; ^--Mayor William Hale Thompson's entire cabinet resigned today, the resignations to take effect at the mayor's pleasure. S a m u e l Ettelson, corporation Counsel and chief of the mayor's aides, said the move was to give Thompson a free hand in the conduct of his campaign for re-election against Anton J. Cermak, democratic chairman of the Cook county board. Relieve Obligations. '."We felt we should relieve the mayor of any obligation to continue any of us in office in his. next administration," Ettelaoa said. "All of us have pledged ourselves to work Vigorously for his re-election." Ettelson, who has been the mayor's closest advisor In two administrations, said he "was working harder than ever", for Thompson's administrations, adding that "and 3'ni sure every, other member of the cabinet is doing likewise." Mayor Thompson could not be reached, but it was learned from his office that no action had been taken on th,e resignations. Hardest Battle. Political followers view the April 7 election as Thompson's hardest ' battle-i-in, a career replete with close and bitter campaigns. At the mayor's office, there was no indication the resignations would be accepted. Close followers of the campaign agreed the resignations were a political gesture. Meats at Osage · OSAGE3--The W. R.

By W. W. CHAPLIN LONDON, March 17. ' UPt--Thru- out Europe, women are turning their eyes from their hearths to the political .arena, some with hope, some, with determination. Even Agia has begun to open its political gates to wives and mothers. The house of representatives in Tokyo has passed a bill granting women equal franchise rights with 1 men. The women of England and Germany- have procured a far firmer pbsition 'in politics than most of their sisters in neighboring lands. In Political Debut Turkish women, tho only liberated from their harems during the past decade, are already on their way to parliament. They made their political debut this year when the Kemalist government granted them the municipal vote. In England 14 women have followed the * American-born Lady Nancy Astor Into the house of commons, and one, Viscountess Sybil Rhondda, who is a peer in her own right, is battering, tho so far without success, at the door of the house of lords. 39 in Reichstag Women constantly are taking a more extensive part in .German public life! There are now 39 feminine deputies In the reichstag, 28 of them being either socialists or communists. Ifl Spain women can neither vote nor hold elective office and the movement for women's suffrage is so far practically negligible. Italian women, like their husbands, are .finding that the only road to political influence winds thru the fascist party. When the talkie haa eliminated all other competition, we hope it will work on the creatures who sit behind us and jabber.--Midwest Review. ' R. N. Reuber, M. D. 21 i/i S. Federal (Above J, 3.
