CHEYENNE FAILS :
TO START FIGHT O’Mahoney's Meeting With Roosevelt Proves “Dud,” Politically Speaking. ON BOARD PRESIDENT ROOSE VELT'S SPECIAL TRAIN EN ROUTE TO SEATTLE. September 25 (NAN. A.).—President Roosevelt at Cheyenne, for the first time on his present trip, came fare to face with a Democratir senator who had vigor ously opposed his Supreme Court bill, but the result was a distinct anti climax. The let-down was the more pro nounced because the Wyoming citi senry was all set, to witness a great political drama. The stage was fixed for it when Senator Joseph C. O'Ma honey arrived in Cheyenne late the previous day all uninvited by Presi dent Roosevelt and tired and dishev eled from four days’ fast driving from Chicago. He had first heard that the President would speak in Chey enne, his home down, when he read the newspapers last Monday morning and he last not a minute in starting for home. In the meantime, the Wyoming electorate was being stirred bv re peated stories from the eastward that the President was coming out to take the hide off the senators who had wrecked his legislative program, and O'Mahoney, who with Senator Pat McCarran of Nevada, had turned the tide against the court bill in the Sen- - ate Judiciary Committee, obviously w’as a shining target for the presiden- I tiol u’rafVi I Would He Face Roosevelt? ^ For three days, Cheyenne citizens had been debating whether O'Mahoney would dare to fare Mr. Roosevelt. His close friends were sure that no man with an Irish "O" ahead of his name ever ran away from a fight. The more ardent New Dealprs jeered back vari- < ouslr that O'Mahoney was lost and he ' would remain so until after the Roose velt, visit,, or that Joe might turn up, but If he did. he would be nothing more than a grease spot by the time the President got through with him. ] As indicated above, the climax came when the Senator came driving down the main street in his own dusty auto mobile at dusk on Thursday, to declare ! that he had come to meet Mr. Roose- < velt, either friend or foe, as the latter might elect. The Wyoming Eagle. Cheyenne's only morning newspaper, which was handed * the President an hour before his ■ arrival, devoted most of its front page j to the impending Roosevelt-O'Mahoney scrap. "State tense as F. R. nears ! Cheyenne." it blared in an eight- 1 column headline, followed by the decla- ] ration in slightly smaller* type that "failure to invite O'Mahoney to join 1 * him creates stir.” * The following text declared that 1 Gov. Leslie L. Miller and Senator Harry f Schwartz had been invited to ride through the State with the President. ! but not O'Ma honey. Two other articles, * almost equally displayed, told of O'Ma- ! 1 honey’s dash from Chicago and his in- 1 tention to meet the President even if j ^ it was only as a private citizen, and ! ! that a meeting of Cheyenne Democrats j 1 had decided Thursday evening to stage j ' a testimonial dinner for O'Mahoney next Monday, seats for which already ! 1 were more than sold out. Hoped Against Reprisals. | ( In a double lead editorial, the Eagle ! v recalled that it had been a supporter ■ of Roosevelt in the elections of both I * 3932 and 1936. but that it had been I c compelled to disagree with him on his j Supreme Court and corporate tax bills | ( and on some features of the wages I c and hours bill. It expressed eonfi- c dence that the President will not stoop I 1 to reprisal against those who disagree f with him. Such was the setting when the ^ presidential train drew into the Chey- n enne station. Members of the local J Citizens’ Committee, headed by Gov. y Miller, no less than the newspaper n correspondents, were speculating as to s whether O'Mahoney would appear; 1 when ■ he suddenly strode into the j . group. He had not been invited by i 11 the President and he didn't know • n where he stood, he admitted, but he | couldn't permit the President to come ! c to his home town without being on i 1 hand to greet him. Mrs. Roosevelt ! came alone just then and shook hands ! with O'Mahoney with every appear- n 8nee of warmth. Senator Schwartz, a first termer in Washington, edged for- e ward and there was a touch of tri umph in O'Mahoney's manner when ® Mrs Roosevelt failed to recognize the junior Senator and O'Mahoney was compelled to introduce him. A moment later, the President's sec retary. Marvin McIntyre, greeted O Mahoney and it was McIntyre who ; F subsequently assured the Senator that the President would be glad to have him ride the train to its last Wyoming stop at Casper. 2 No Mention of Major Aims. O'Mahoney moved out into the crowd to listen to one of the most in- r nocuous speeches Mr. Roosevelt ever t has delivered. The President made no mention of his court, bill or of any L other of the major features of his leg- v Jslative program. Instead, he told of , - the thousand of airports and new J schools the Federal Government had t built from relief funds. j The depression emergency and the era of government spending, he said, j was drawing toward an end. He was t sure It all had been very helpful to - the Nation and even more sure that the Government of the United States Is not going broke. This last pro- J nouncement evoked a mild cheer, the only one that the crowd of 5,000 vouchsafed. It had come in ex pectancy of a dog fight and it was plainly disappointed when nothing of l the sort occurred. While the President was speaking j Senator O'Mahoney engaged in a con- t tinuous reception, dozens of citizens , moved over to shake his hand, slap his beck and whisper encouragement. The ' Senator plainly was having a most enjoyable time. If there was any visible slight to O'Mshoney during the day, it was the President's pointed references to Sen ator Schwartz and O'Mahoney's prede cessor, the late Senator John B. Ken drick. in his speech at Casper, as lead ing promoters of the neighboring Cas per-Alcova project. O'Mahoney, who also has been active in this connection, was not mentioned. The President also may have had O'Mahoney in mind when he referred to those who do "lip service to the administration's ob jectives,” but balk at the means of obtaining them. By "means” the Pres- : ident perhaps had in mind the court i bill which O'Mahoney opposed. i (Capyrlrht, 103*. by the North American Newspaper Alliance.

Playing ape-man Is a highly spe- ! cialized bit of business, and few of those who make good at it arrive at the cinematic heights. The public re- j members them only for the way they i beat their chests and the volume of their jungle bel lows. Glenn Morris,1 Olympic decath lon champion, and Eleanor Holm, pretty! swimming cham-! pion, are the j present Mr. and Mrs. Tarzan. Hollywood rec ords show Morris is the tenth screen jungle king. The first was Elmo Lincoln, who appeared in “Tarzan of the Apes.’’ in 1918. He's now a Salt Lake City junk dealer. Lincoln’s successors were Gene Polar, P. Dempsey Tabler, Kamuela Searles, Frank Merrill, James H. Pierce, Larry (Buster) Crabbe. Her man Brtx and Johnny Weissmueller— names thjfb don't mean a thing now. excepting Weissmueller and Crabbe. Crabbe is under contract at Para mount, doing nothing colossal, bu getting along. Weismueller is givini swimming exhibitions in Clevelanc and is under contract to do a seriei of shorts. He is also married to Lupi Velez, and their frequent fights pro vide good, clean fun for the public. Of the Tarzan mates, Maureer O'Sullivan is about the only one wht has been successful in higher his tronics. Morris and Miss Holm are schedulec to begin work shortly on "Tarzan'; Revenge” for principal productions. Morris is a puzzle to Hollywood He refuses to co-operate in publicity stunts. He attends Rotary and Ki wanis meetings regularly, addressei Y. M. C. A. groups. In "Tarzan’s Revenge” he will speal four lines, virtually an oration for i Tarzan.
