ThllfMUy, March 2, 1944 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Backstage in Iowa Politics State Campaign Shows Occasional Bursts of Speed, Then Idles Along; "Horse Race" Likely in Blue-Burma Contest By PAUL R. BUMBARGEK ' Iowa Dally Press Writer , « TM otn *J. tfDPA)--It's a crazy-quilt pattern that Iowa politics Js following this election year. There are occasional bursts of speed Cut the motor idles mostly. The situation has presented something of a phenomenon in that Secretary or State Wayne M. Ropes has taken occasion to warn candidates for state and district offices of the March 17 tiling deadline, only 2 weeks away. Approximately 200 have taken out papers for the=e offices 20 of whom are democrats. ' THE ELEPHANT --On the republican side, more predictions of a horse race" are being heard on the Blue-Burma governorship nomination contest. Hickeniooper for senator offices have opened down the hall from republican state headquarters in the Empire building Burma headquarters are in the Kirkwood hotel with L. L Brierly Newton attorney, campaign manager, in charge. Word has circulated that the latehstring soon will be out. in the same hotel at the Blue quarters. Nomination petitions are reported being passed around out- state for J. H. Cruickshank, Sioux City, for state treasurer an office he sought in 1942. ' THE DONKEY --Something uncommon in state politics occurred ·wnen State Chairman Jake More of the democrats said the organization probably would back a slate; that the party needed "new blood on toe state ticket." Usually the 2 major parties erect a facade of neutrality m primaries, even though' word may have passed down the line to support an individual candidate or candidates More reports only one democrat wrote in protest and many praised circulation by state party workers o£ petitions for renomination of Sen. Guy M Gillette. The kick was along the line that Gillette had fought the : president. Democrats entering the candidate fold this week were Dr A. F. McGreevey, Sioux City veterinarian and American Legionnaire' for secretary of agriculture and Mrs. Genevieve Nichols, Iowa Falls' rm . e r,5S.'r£. county democratic vice chairman, for secretary of state MAIEZY DOATS-pften state officials are invited to break bread with their fellow men in exchange for a few well chosen words They have a name for it--one any entertainer would understand--"singing for your supper!" (How about "barking for your biscuits," Paul?) WANT EVERY MORSEL--The Anamosa reformatory investigation probably won't be finished before mid-month, the probers seeking every scrap of information about conditions there. According to capital speculation, the report may be expected to contain no whitewash and be rather robust. NEW HORIZON--Lack of a united front sometimes has put Iowa truck interests at a disadvantage in legislative lobby efforts. A brighter day may be in store for them, if reports pan out that John H Gillespie, district office of defense transportation director, may succeed the late Jim Brockway as secretary of the Iowa Motor Truck association. Formerly with the state commerce commission Gillespie knows most of the angles in the highly competitive transportation picture. BITS --It was quite a tour of the statehouse that Clifford L Niles Anamosa publisher and critic of Warden Foss Davis of the reformatory there, made the other day. ; . . Francis G. Cutler, Boone democratic candidate for lieutenant governor, won nomination for the office m 1832 but withdrew. .. . Nelson G. Kraschel then was nominated in convention and elected. Circulate Papers or Mitchell as Demo jovemor Candidate D*» Molnes, (JP) -- State demo- ratic headquarters said Thursday hat circulation of nomination pa- ers for the gubernatorial candidacy of Richard F. Mitchell, Fort Jodge, in the Iowa primaries vould begin in a few days. Mitcli- 11 is a former state supreme court Seaman S. J.

K, received the purple heart award Wednesday lor their son, Stepfan J. Kercheff, seaman 2/c, killed in action in the Pacific war area in 1942. The citation was signed by'Frank Knox, secretary of the navy and read as follows: "This is to certify that the president of the United States of America pursuant to the authority vested in him by congress has awarded the Purple Heart established by Gen. George Washington at Newburgb, N. Y., Aug. 7, 1782, to Stepfan Jess Kercheff, seaman 2/c, U. S. navy for military merit and for wounds received in action resulting in his death Oct. 26, 1942." Seaman Kercheff entered the service in March, 1941, and went to Hawaii on the U. S. S. Lexington later being transferred to the Enterprise. He also had received a facsimile of the citation awarded the U. S. S. Enterprise, which he ·was aboard during the Pearl Harbor attack. SEAMAN S. J. KEECHEFF Prefers to Stay in Jail After Testifying Chicago, (U.PJ--James J, Egan, Who believes ne took his life in his hands when he testified against 3 alleged gamblers in a murder trial last year, changed his mind Thursday and decided to remain in the sanctuary of the county jail for another 24 hours. Egan was to have been released after being in custody for 5 months at his own request. However, his' trial on a minor charge is not scheduled until Friday and he apparently preferred to stay behind bars until then. "I STOPPED DOSING MY CONSTIPATION A YEAR ABO!"

Persons Knowing Little About Production Give Valuable Suggestions Washington, (U.PJ--The guy who didn't know the difference between a torch welder and a torch singer before he took a war job received a vote o£ tribute Thursday from the ofiice of war information. Because such people know so little about production, OWI said they are not afraid to sugges changes which now are savins, countless dollars and man-hours in the war effort. OWI deducted from reports com piled by the war productioi board, war manpower commission maritime commission and war anc navy departments that war plan suggestion boxes have producec ideas which have pushed time- honored production technique^ out the window. The result: New streamlined methods which can b devised only by people who don' believe in "impossibility." The work o£ some 4,000 labor management committees in war industry, embracing an estimatec 7,000,000 war workers, has triplec the volume of ideas dropped int plant suggestion boxes in the las C months, OWI said.

There wcve reports, meantime, hat some democratic leaders vere urging David Murphy o{ Du- buque to seek Jhe democratic U. S. senatorial nomination. Murphy. at his home in Dubuque, said he "emphatically" did not contemplate seeking a senate seat.
