D f . l T OF I · ; , . " 11 r S M O I o; ( -J I · · NORTH IOWA'S DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME "THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS" H O M E E D I T I O N VOL. XLIII ASSOCIATED PRESS AND UNITED PRESS LEASED WIRES MASON CITY, IOWA, FRIDAY, MARCH 5, 1937 THIS PAPER CONSISTS Of TWO SECTIONS NO. 129 More About Third Term White House Wants Press to Say F. R. Opposes It. the reason wny By CHARLES F. STEWART. A S H I N G T O N , (C P A ) -- T h e white house has b. e e n permitting hints to leak out of late t h a t President Roosevelt h a s no intention o£ seeking a third term in the executive m a n- sion. I myself have nibbled a li'.tle at this bait. So h a v e o t h e r W a s h i n g t o n corr e s p o n d - enls. H o w e v er, the administration encourages it is obvious: It is aware that third term gossip is prevalent and wants io give the impression that there is nothing in it. · Not necessarily that the president would balk at a third, but he prefers not to have it forecast so early. Third term possibilities hinge largely upon the outcome of the supreme court controversy. Take More Time. It the presidential plan for the high tribunal's reorganization is adopted, by congress its author undoubtedly will retire early in 1941, turning over to his successor a governmental system altered in accordance with his liking. But if "congress turns him down he will have to fall back upon the slower method of effecting 'reorganization by constitutional amendment. Such a proposed amendment almost inevitably still will be pending in 1940, and "F. D." simply will have to be drafted to see it through. Too Soon Now. Nevertheless, it is too soon now for him to like to have it talked about. . : . ' All the same, the intimation that third term suggestions aie base-Jess has^giyen rise to considerable tpecu'anon as to 1940 democratic presidential candidacies. At the present juncture the individuals "whose names, m especial, sre frequently mentioned are: Gov. George H. Earle ot Pennsylvania, Gov. Frank Murphy of Michigan and Secretary ot Agriculture Henry A. Wallace. Secretary Wallace, with his republican antecedents, may seem like a remote democratic possibility. Still,'.parly lines arc so completely shot to pieces today t h a t the past does not signify much. And Wallace is an extraordinarily good publicist of himself. Momentarily Murphy is in the limelight, because of his capable handling of sitdown strike difficulties. Yet they may be forgotten three years hence. Earle has wonderful chances i{ he makes the most of them--and has luck. Earle's Qualifications. Earle, comparatively young, has not established the national reputation that Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt already had attained to at his time of life. For. all that, he has the credit, among democratic politicians, o£ having redeemed, to their party, the traditionally overwhelmingly republican stale of Pennsylvania. And Pennsylvania not only s politically pivotal; it is industrially pivotal also. In the next few months Earle wil face three tremendous capilal- and-labor crises--anthracite coal, bituminous coal and steel. Two "Lean" Years. If Earle muffs these opportunities?---all is ended. ' If he adequately avails himself of them his prominence becomes countrywide automatically.' He has one handicap: His gubernatorial term will end with 1D38 and he c a n n o t succeed himself. Therefore, successful as he may have been, he will have a two year hiatus within which to have been forgotlen before presidential 1940. He wants' to.bridge that interval by coming to the senate. Senator Joseph F. G u f f c y of Pennsylvania notoriously does not w a n t him to come--jealousy. And t h a t , Earle, is formidable. Smooth Talker With Gold Teeth Sought DES MOINES, (/PJ--The state insurance department broadcast a warning over the state-police radio Friday to be on the lookout ior a "smooth talker with prominent gold teeth" who is wanted in six states for "fraudulent insurance sales." The bulletin said the man has been operating at Clarinda, Shen~ andoah, Des Moincs and Ames, selling fraudulent health, accident and life policies. The department said he claims to represent a company of Springfield, Mass., but a c t u a l l y has no connection w i t h it and is not licensed to sell insurance of any description in Iowa.- HOUSE PASSES HOMESTEAD BILL ONLY TWO "NO" VOTES CAST ON FINAL PASSAGE Iowa Senate Delays Debate on Motor Vehicle Bill to Wednesday. DES MOINES, (#)--With only- two dissenting votes, the Iowa house of representatives Friday passed the senate homestead tax relief bill and returned it to the upper chamber for concurrence in minor amendments. Final vote after more- than a week of deliberation was. 102 to 2, with four house members absent or not voting. Opposing the measure were representatives C. G. Johnson (D) of Marathon, and Representative Henry Fox (D) of Elma. Before taking its final vote, the lower house rejected a proposed "substitute bill by Johnson to exempt non-residents from the sales tax, and also to restrict them from benefits of homestead exemption. This vote was 78 to 26. The Johnson bill proposed to allocate sales tax revenues back for property tax relief, as done at present. "Rough and Tumble." Action by the house climaxed a morning of "rough and tumble'' debate and after that b o d y _ h a d reversed its position of yesterday by adding to the homestead bill a provision to limit the millage credit to 25 mills for every dollar of eligible homestead valuation. Otherwise the senate measure was but little altered. It provides for exemption to homestead owners on the first $2,500 of assessed valuation by providing for allocation of three- point revenue funds_for that purpose after allocating also for direct relief and for old age assistance Friends of the bill s a y ' i t will provide from $8,000,000 to $10,000,000 annually to reduce direct property taxation while providing also for old age assistance and for relief. Re-Enaets Sales Tax. The bill re-enacts the sales tax and from its income plus revenue under the income tax allocates $5,500,000 for tl\e old age pension f u n d , and ?2,000,000 annually to the emergency relief administration fund. As it came from the senate the bill though subjected to repeated and vigorous attacks and attempts to amend was revamped only with respect to the millage credit limit; to provide that adopted children might be given the exemption benefits, and to provide that 1937 valuations shall be the basis for determining 1338 benefits. It also was revised to delete a requirement that persons eligible to receive homestead benefits should be residents of me state for 9 months of the year, rewording this section to apply the act to "residents of the state of Iowa who own a hostemead." Johnson Bill Fought. Through the tense closing hours of debate on the homestead plan, proponents of the senate mea.surc clashed s h a r p l y w i t h advocates oC t h e Johnson b i l l . The Buena Visla county lawmaker, declaring his bill to be the only equitable plan for Iowa rural residents, held it would bring f u l l y 52,000,000 more into use for homestead relief than the other measure. He held also that allocations proposed from three point revenues would require an additional stale levy. Johnson and Rep. Ove T. Roe (D) ot Waukon, carried the brunt of the f i g h t for the non-resident proposal. The latter said farm tenancy might be reduced u n d e r the Johnson bill. Rep. Roy J. Sours (R) of Charles City, and flood leader in the movement to obtain adoption ot the senate bill, at one point in" the heated debate, removed his coat to move about more freely as he talked. He defended the sen- ale measure as being f a i r and just to both u r b a n and r u r a l areas. Take Wcck-Encl Recess. This bit of major legislation disposed of, the house took a week-end recess u n t i l Monday. At the same time, the senate decided to postpone u n t i l next Wednesday consideration of the other major proposal before the legislature--the bill to create a separate state motor vehicle department, enlarge the highway patrol and rewrite t r a f f i c safety laws. The bill itself and suggested amendments were placed in the hands of a steering committee for study. Although Senator William S. Beardsley (R) of New Virginia, chief sponsor of the senate motor vehicle bill, asked the senate to go ahead wilh debate today, the motion to defer was voled, 32 lo 17. Krasn Spcctl Limit.

The county coroner, called to the farm, termed Turtle's death "accidental" and said no inquest would be conducted. Tuttle, preparing to blasl..a well on the H. W.

The night speed limit of..45 miles an hour was temporarily retained. Earlier in its session the upper chamber passed a' house resolution calling for appointment of a joint committee to study the' problem of housing state departments which have overflowed into downtown Des Moines offica buildings. It also heard three senators-D. W. Kimberly (R) of Davenport, George Parker '(R) of Independence, and M. X. Geske (D) of McGregor--withdraw their names as co-authors of the senate liquor by the drink bill which is a companion to the Roan bill in the house. The three senators said they did not participate in writing the bill and did not know their names were to be listed as sponsors. 2,000 Employes Get Wage Boost of Tenth DUBUQUE, (fP--Ten per cent wage increases for approximately 2,000 employes of the Farley snd Leslcher and CHIT.

Hunyon, 30, whom officers are holding for a Britt murder and two bank holdups, was issued Friday by District Judge F. H. Rice. The writ was against the sheriffs of Woodburj', Hancock and Cerro Gordo counties and Paul Gruber, state agent. Gruber and Russ Graham, also a state agent, Thursday took Runyon to Garner, and subsequently to Mason City, to the Cerro Gordo county jail. Defense attorneys, Carlos GolU and R a l p h Oliver, asserted issuance ot the writ was within this court's jurisdiction as the constant moving of Runyon made it impossible for them to determine immediately his whereabouts from hour io hour. North Iowa authorities Friday afternoon had not yet been notified of a district court order issued in Sioux City requesting the appearance there of Thomas J. Runyon. Meanwhile he was being held in the Cerro Gordo c o u n t y j a i l , as Hancock county authorities went ahead with the plans for the prosecution of Runyon on a first degree murder charge.
