Tells Gov.-elect Hunt of Arizona, Pres ent Parties May Go. Phoenix. Ariz., Nov. 27, Senator La Follette, Republican, Wisconsin, was quoted to-day by George W, Hunt, governor-elect of Arizona, as having told him that he could just as soon see both the Republican and democratic parties scrapped. Mr. Hunt, telling of a long distance telephone conversation with the senator from Washington, quoted LaFollette as saying that the people had spoken twice to the majority parties and if they Jiad to speak again it would be to welcome a third party. Mr. Hunt may send a representative to the meeting of Progressive leaders called by Senator LaFollette at Wash ington for December 2, but will not at tend himself. Senator LaFollette, according to Mr Hunt, pointed out that Tadieal or progressive candidate in eight states had been victorious in the recent elec tions - through close "combination of organized farmers and union workers, and that m analysis of the returns would show Hunt's election by such a combination. Mr. Hunt said this was the reason for inviting him to the con ference. ; - "The iron is hot, it is time to strike," was one of Senator LaFollette'a ex pressions, Mr. Hunt declared. "The psychology of the dissatisfied masses, dissatifled" becaue they are not getting living .wages, because they are not getting sufficient return for their crops to pay taxes' and buy groceries, is to the back 'of this political upheaval" Hunt asserted the .Wisconsin senator told him over the telephone. "I feel confidenfthat Senator La Follette has the best interests of the people at heart 'in hiseflorts to esta blish trig "bloc" Mr. nunt said, "But I cannot get away from my ideas that the place to make this fight for the peo ple is in he Democratic party." - Mr. Hunt' said Senator LaFollette outlined in detail the plans being for mulated for a governing bloc in both the Senate and House.
