Gillette of Iowa, who survived a purge at tempt by the Roosevelt Administra tion in 1938, is coming baqk to re claim a seat he lost 4 years ago. Defeated in 1944 by Republican Senator Hiokenlooper, the Iowa Democrat last week won out over Republican Senator Wilson. Now 69, and with an interim rec ord of added public service, the in dependent but pleasant-mannered lawyer from Cherokee, Iowa, is one of 18 new faces to be seen when the Senate meets January 3. Senator Gillette began his career as a prosecuting attorney of Cher okee County, 1907-1909; then was a member of the Iowa State Senate from 1912 to 1916. He was a ser geant in the Spanish-American War and a captain of infantry in the first World War. After a period as a farmer, he went back into politics and was elected and re-elected to the House, for the Seventy-third and Seventy fourth Congresses, serving from ! 1933 to 1937, and then captured a Senate seat. In his first short term in the Sen ate, he voted against a number of Roosevelt measures and was marked for the purge when he bucked the President on the Supreme Court packing bill. Competing for the nomination for his Senate seat was Representative Otha D. Wearin, Iowa Democrat in the House, who had a more perfect record of sup porting Roosevelt. In that test, Mr. Wearin had the open support of President Roose velt's son, James, and of Harry Hopkins, then WPA Administrator,! among others.

GILLETTE. lette won the primary handsomely and came through at election time. After the primary fight. President Roosevelt took steps to end the rift, inviting Senator Gillette to a spe cial Sunday luncheon at the White House. And, again, in June, 1944, when Senator Gillette was running for re-election, Mr. Roosevelt wrote the now-famous “Dear Guy” note to the Iowan, seeking to smooth out that year’s differences. Senator Gillette had declared sharp opposition to a fourth term for President Roosevelt, saying it was a “threat to democracy.” This rift, too, was patched up, but Sen ator Gillette lost his seat to Mr. Hickenlooper. Shortly thereafter, he was named chairman of the Surplus Property Board, but after duty there resigned to become paid president of the American League for a Free Pal estine. He said he felt that in that way he could make a more vital contribution to world peace and se curity than through a Federal Gov ernment job. Though not quite a Roosevelt New Dealer in the fullest sense, he has been praised as a liberal, though at times “fed up” on official errors of the former Democratic regimes.
