Fletcher Attacks Task of
Rebuilding Toward

more liberal lines and at the same
time stand as the rallying post for
conservative thought? Can it do
this in the light of the fact that a
considerable proportion of the Repub
licans left in the Senate are any
thing but conservative. Mr. Fletcher
has a rough job on his hands, any
■way you look at it.
Senator Hastings of Delaware,
«•hose State stuck to Republicanism
Tuesday and who is chairman of I
the Republican Senatorial Campaign
Committee, insists the New Deal is
merely β dangerous disease that must
run its course. A lot of other Re
publicans take the same view. They
may be entirely correct in their esti
mate that it must run its course, al
though the Democrats, except the
very conservative Democrats, will dis
pute the suggestion that the New
Deal is a dangerous disease.
It is not unlikely .that several im
portant Republican leaders will coun
sel the party to play a waiting game,
In the hope that sooner or later the
new deal will become unpopular. Sen
ator McNary of Oregon, Republican
leader of the Senate, who took prac
tically no part in the campaign just
closed, was one of those who believed
in such a waiting game and so ad
vised his colleagues last Winter.
Some Cling to Old Issue.
The more aggressive anti-New Deal
ers continue to declare that in the
campaign now closed the Republicans
have laid the ground work for better
success in 1936. They feel that their
efforts have not been wasted, despite
the decisive defeats of anti-New Deal
candidates. They are beginning to
measure the size of the popular vote
to compare it with totals cast in 1932.
The proportion of the total vote ca«t
thus year for G. O. P. candidates is
considerable greater than two years
Keg îmenia non 01 industry ana
the farmer. Government in business,
and too much spending are still relied
npon as issues by some Republicans,
and they hope to be able to bring
these matters home to the people as
the months pass by, particularly if
the Federal Government finds it
necessary to impose heavier taxes.
The rout of old guard Republican
Senators in Tuesday's election has left
G. O. P. regularr in the Upper House
■with scarcely more than a corporal's
guard. They are. however, more nu
merous than the progressive Repub
lican group, which so often has been
insurgent in Republican administra
tions. But these progressives are a
much larger proportion of the whole
Republican membership of the Senate
—only 24 or 25. depending on whether
Cutting of New Mexico is finally
elected or not-—than in the past.
McNary Ha* Difficult' Task.
The Republican leader, McNary,
still has the job of reconciling as far
as possible the conflicting views of the
two groups Among the Progressives.
Borah of Idaho, Johnson of California
and Morris of Nebraska are the out
standing figures, with Nye of North
Dakota a more youthful but aggres
sive figure. The Old Guardsmen left
Jn the Senate have no powerful figure
or voice among them.
Vandenberg, who belonged to the
"young Turk" movement in the Sen
ate of a couple of years ago, and
McNary are the principal figures
among the regulars. It is not clear
now just how far the Progressive Re
publicans will get in their plans to
seize, if possible, the control of the
Republican party. There seems little
doubt they will try to get the upper
hand and that they look upon the
present as an ideal time, when there
Is talk of "liberalizing" the Repub
lican party. Tliey prefer to do the
liberalizing, however, rather than to
leave it to the hands of Chairman
Flewher and Senator Hastings.
Some Democrats in Dilemma.
In their opposition to parts of the
Roosevelt New Dtal and Its more rad
ioal extension the Republicans are
hoping for aid from the more con
servative Democrats. The huge sup
port given by the voters to the New
Deal program. however. mav give these
Democrats pause before they oppose
the administration. They may. how
ever, be found with the Republicans
fighting plans that go beyond the
recommendations of the President.
If Cutting of New Mexico is re
turned to the Senate the number of
progressive Republicans will be eight
end there will be 17 Republicans con
sidered liberal, although many of
them ate by no means of the old
guard stamp. Men like McNary. Cap
pe"". Vandenberg, while usually en
tirely regular, are more liberal than
Hale of Maine. Hastings of Delaware
end Barbour of New Jersey.
Vandenberg and McNary have both
been mentioned as Republican presi
dential candidates for the 1936 cam
paign. Vandenberg s re-election is
likely to give him a boost as a na
tional contender. How well this pair
of Republican Senators will get along
in the Senate during the next year
or two remains to be seen.

by the only colored Representative.

Their bailiwick is that conglomerate
first district, a district of contradic
tions—the "loop" with its hundreds
of millions in property, the teeming
colored section stretching southward,
the Old "Gold Coast" of the South
Shore, tarnished by racial and In
dustrial migrations of late decades.
Its rule is shared by those old cronies
of the first ward, "Bath House John"

Michael "Hinky Dink" Kenna, the
Democrat committeeman.

routine nature, which had accumu- !
lated during his absence.
The President's first act upon his :
return was to let it be known he had j
no intention of breaking the silence i
he has maintained since election
To those who have talked with Mr j
Roosevelt privately, he has made it
clear he ran see no good reason for
any public statement from him at this <
time regarding the elections. He has
indicated the figures speak for them
.selves. With the sweet taste of the
New Deal victory the President
realizes he must struggle all the
harder to carry through his program
and to show the people that confi
dence In him has not been misplaced, j
Mr. Roosevelt must now set about i
perfecting his tuture recovery pro
gram. This will include working out
the future of the National Recovery
Administration, which by law. will go
out of existence June 15 next unless
provision is made for its continuance.
The President is known to have a
very definite idea as to what he will
recommend to Congress regarding the
N. R. A.
Faces Relief Program.
This will be one of the important
sections of the annual message Presi
dent Roosevelt will transmit to the
new Congress when it meets January
3. The President also is faced with
the task of perfecting the lelief pro
gram with a view to correlating it
with the Public Works Administra
tion. The extent of the îeliet pro
gram will depend upon the extent of
the unemployment situation and it
will include also provision for a per- !
manent rehabilitation program for
unemployed and underprtviliged.
Other than jotting down notes from
time to time, President Roosevelt has
not yet begun writing iiis message
to Congress.
It is quite likely he will reserve the
writing of this message for the quiet
seclusion of his little cottage at Warm
Springs. Ga. w here he will go the
middle of this month and remain until j
the first week of December. The Pros- !
ident's plans Λ this time are to leave
Washington November 17 and on his
way to Warm Springs to spend three
days inspecting the work of the Ten
nessee Valley Authority, one of the
major experiments of the New Deal.
He also will make a pilgrimage to the
Hermitage, former home of President
Andrew Jackson, near Nashville, and
will visit Harrodsburg, Ky., to par
ticipate in the ceremonies incident to
the unveiling of a monument com
memorating American pioneer·.
Widely Congratulated.
The President went to his desk on
the main floor of the White House at
11 a.m., to enter upon his long list
of engagements. He found his desk
piled with telegrams from all parts of
the country, congratulating him upon
the overwhelming New Deal victory.

Regulars in Pitched Battle With
•"X. P. I. C." Faction for
Party Control.
By th* A«*oclat«d Pre··.
The <lie was c*«t today for a contest
between Upton Sinclair'* "Ε. P. I. C."
faction and old-line Democrats for con
trol of the party in California.
The former Socialist, defeated by
the Republican Oov. Frank F. Mer
riam in his bid for the governorship
as Democratic nominee, nevertheless
gained a foothold in other State
Culbert Olson. Sinclair's chief cam
paign lieutenant, was elected to the
State Senate. "Ε P. I. C." backers cap
tured at least 17 seats In the Assem
bly and one of the four places on the
State Board of Equalization, impor
tant tax and liquor control body.
The call to battle for control of the
party was issv.ed by Olson in his
capacity as Democratic State Central
Committee chairman.
"Only those who remained loyal to
the Democratic party during the re
cent campaign will remain In the
party and De recognised as Demo
crate," he said after a u» Angeles
meetinf at which Sinclair acted as
William B. Neblett. law partner of
United States Senator William G. Mc
Adoo. replied that the "Democrats will
repudiate E.P. I.C." Sinclair countered
"The Democrats will repudiate Neb- j
William Jennings Bryan, jr.. whose
father was once the national leader
of the party, said: "Upton Sinclair,
who is not now and never was a
Democrat, must no longer be regarded
a leader in the Democratic party. His
Invasion has been repudiated."
Senator McAdoo remained aloof. He
said he "voted the Democratic ticket 1
all the way through."
The only doubtful California seat
in the California congressional dele
gation was in the twelfth district,
where John N. Hoeppel. Democrat, was
leading his Republican opponent, j
Frederick Houser. 43.645 to 42.028 in I
returns from S65 of the 430 precincts. !
If Hoeppel wins it will be a gain of
two in the State's representation for
the party. Twelve of the 20 House
seats were won by Democrats.
