THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2-1, 1D36 II5ENJTE HE Dcmocra'ic Leaders Rc. nounce Own Cancii- dale to Support Morris lly II. II. GKUKNTIIKK NKA Service Siioclal Torres iwrndcnl OMAHA, Neb.—A strange batch of pDlilic.il dough is being mixed in Nebraska. What kind of cake is coming out of the oven in November is a puzzle. ' Tlie nisi Ingredient. Is Senator George Norris, who lia.s deserted Ws own Republican party and come, oiil strongly for Dooscvelt-'s—ami his own—re-election. ; Next comes Edward n. Burke, Democratic junior senator, who resigned as I)?mocralic national com- mitleeman ''because tbere were certain features of tlie New Deal program of which he did not approve" and he wlslied to be free U> support or crilicizs as be clioso. Yet. Burke is strongly supporting tlie re-election of the nominally Republican Morris rather than the Democratic candidate for Norris' feat, former Congressman Terry Carpenter. William Ritchie, a power In Democratic politics in the state, has renounced Roosevelt nnd has come out flatly for Lnudon. OU> FOE HACKS NORKIS Arthur Mullen. Dsmocratic boss in Uie slate, heretofore foe of Norris. floor manager for Roosevelt at Chicago in '32, has been more or less out of the political ranks since President Roosevelt publicly humiliated Mullen by including him • in the group asked to resign as national conimittecmc.il or forsake their political lobbying and law •practice in Washington. But Mullen is back in tlie harness again, strongly supporting the president ami Norris. This is odd. because NorrLs and Mullen have long been bitter enemies. In fact, not so long ago Norris threatened a congressional investigation into Mullen's activities in connection with legal work and fees charged for obtaining PWA grants for Nebraska projects. Because of these strange lineups, the political future of Senator Norris is in grave peril. And it looks as if his own work in getting $20,000.000 for a PWA project for Ws state might rise up now to haunt him.

So Carpenter will cut inlo as tlie Trl-County i'ower and Irrigation project. The only way the area involved can get water is to divert It from the Plattc river watershed. Residents living along the Platte are up in arms ovei° the proposal (a divert water from their river valley. So while Senator Norris has gained supporrl from residents living In tlie Trl-County area, he has last backing among those living along tlie platle river—and tlie latter are two or three to one in the majority. Pour years ago Roosevelt won the state by 158.000 votes. Two years ago. tlie senator, tlie governor, and four of the five congressmen, all running on a New Deal program, were elected. 'While the president 'has lost support, it is not believed he has lost enough to be defeated, in spite of thc abundance of "favorite son" sentiment . which'"comes'•'over the border line from Governor Laudon's" state'of.

He had represented Nebraska since 1902 by virtue of five terms as representa- ttive and four ns senator. Both liic Democratic nnd Republican parties Invited Norris to be a candidate In their primaries, but he refused. So the Republicans nominated Robert Simmons, fire times congressman, and the Democrats nominated Terry Car|>cnter, elected to Congress In 1932 at the age of 32. , Carpenter has the siipjwrt of the Coughliniles. and advocates numerous "Isms" having an appeal to the masses. SPLITS DEMOCRATIC VOTE Following the primaries, president Roosevelt, asked Senator Norris to become a candidate. Senator Burke assured NorrLs of Democratic support in the state. Burke was even instrumental in getting tlie Democratic state convention to renounce its own candidate, Carpenter," and endorse-Norris. •A petition with 40,000 names We're Still Asking You -Can Can You Order Furniture I At These Prices? j Look in your catalogue and compare prices on stable ar- I tides listed below.
