New Dealers Withhold Fire In Coming Campaign Events Conference Speeches of President Roosevelt Failed In Any Spectacu lar Pronouncement By BYRON PRICE <<hlef of Bureau, 'l'he Ansiuciatfd I k ri*SN \\ 3NllillK(OII > The tactical policy of the Dem ocratic high contmand obviously is to refrain, for the present, from exploding any bombshells. Mr. Roosevelt’s recent speeches before party rallies in Baltimore and New York surprised man/ listeners, who had expected him to open the campaign with some spectacular pronouncement. Most of the administration spellbinders temporarily have re tired from speechmaking entirely, and the publicity output from na tional party headquarters is no ticeably smaller than formerly. Even the much-advertised ad dress of Secretary Roper before the Chambr of Commerce of the United States, expected by some to embody at least a hint of re newed industrial regulation by the government, turned out to be largely a treatise advising busi ness how it might help itself. On the industrial question, Sec retary Perkins gave political cir cles a tip when she told a Chicago interviewer that Washington pro posed to wait until the first of next year before deciding whether to propose anything new with re spect to unemployment and relief. Some politicians believe the President may speak out more vigorously on some issues in his acceptance speech after the Phila delphia convention, but meantime comparative political quiet seems in store on the Potomac. An Old Practice 'Wjhile all of this may uppear odd for an administration which has produced so many political surprises, it is quite in accord with' the orthodox practices of former campaign years. Whenever a President is run ning for reelection, the norm." thing is for the opposition to shoot off most of the pre-conven tion fireworks. Tihc party in power usually knows who its nominee will be. what its platform will say, who will run the campaign. The party out of power usually is divided, squabbling over all of these ques tions. The ins therefore prefer to remain quiet, letting the country concentrate its attention on the troubles of the outs. That is \/nat the President’s managers are doing now. The louder the debate becomes among the Republicans, th more the Democrats seem disposed to sur render the whole stage to them. The argument is that if the va rious Republican factions are not stirred up from outside, and not forced to divert some of their fire, they will b? likely to bom bf.rd one another more vigorously and do greater damage within their own party. This may or may not be sound reasoning, but itt goes a long way toward accounting for the appar ent Democratic backwardness in getting Mr. Roosevelt’s reelection campaign in to high gear. Democrats Getting Ready The lack of explosions overhead, however, should not be taken to mean that the Democratic organ ization is idle. The work of tuniug up for the coming test is proceeding quietly but on an extensive scale. Demo cratic headquarters in Washing ton has taken on new person nel, and added new floor space. It is a busy spot from morning to night. BOY ...BUT THAT GOES GOOD! WHEN "WILTED FEELINGS” COME OVER YOU ON WARM DAYS...AND YOUR THROAT SAYS “COOL ME OFF WITH WaGNER' ©hr 2Ce Meat ©tttgrn FUND FOR SCOUTS STARTING TO GROW FIVE DOLLARS HAS BEEN GIVEN OVER FOR BENE FIT OF ORGANIZATION Those paragraphs anent Boy Scouts in Key West which ap peared in “Americana’s” column in The Citizen of Aprii 24, have been productive of results, $5 to date. The writer said that he had just heard “The Boy Scouts were about to disband for lack of funds,” and deplored a condition which would deprive the boys of the only vacation opportunity they may possibly have. “That may not mean much to you and you. but to a group of kids” it means a great deal,, and it was suggested that the boys be assisted. Only a few days later a letter came from Mr. and Mrs. Frank Rieker, of Wrightsville, Pa., en closing a check for $2. Several days later Fred Eberhardt, custo dian at Fort Jefferson National Monument, arrived and contribut ed sl. Yesterday a letter was received with a donation of $2 from Dr. J. M. Renedo, in Mi ami. JERRY CARTER TO SPEAK HERE : i CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR; I WILL ADDRESS VOTERS ON MAY 27 Jerry W. Carter, candidate for ■ governor, will speak in Key West! Wednesday, May 27, according to commission has prevented as ac day from Carter headquarters in \ the Seminole Hotel, Jacksonville. 1 Mr. Carter will come to Key West by plane from Miami. Mr. Carter has been making a j tour of the state but his duties as ' a member of the state railroad commission hsa prevented as ac- \ tive a campaign as most of the j other candidates. “Please say to my friends in ' Monroe county,” said Mr. Carter, j “that twice before I had hoped to ■ reach Key West, but I certainly would not think of not getting down there to greet your citizens, j so I have definitely arranged to be with you May 27.” Mr. Carter served for 12 years as state hotel commissioner. In ; 1933 he was elected railroad j commissioner by the largest vote I ever received by a candidate for, state office in an off year, his; vote being 113.343 to 55,741 re ceived by his opponent. Mr. Carter, as governor, pro-; poses to reduce the per capita tax burden by approximately ISO per- : cent by inducing 1.500,000 new residents to the state, and sets forth that Key West should of course ges its rightful share of i these new citizens. Mr. Carter is strong for “the best system of public schools we can pay for,” and urges more ; pay for school teachers. Also, Mr. Carter endorses the Townsend plan and be organized and is president of the Townsend club in Tallahassee and has re ceived a personal letter of felicita tion from Dr. Townsend, found er of the Townsend movement.

Primary Ballot Will Be Four Feet Long; Fourteen Candidates For Governor To Lead Parade I TALLAHASSEE, Fla., May 11. —A ballot four feet long, with three columns of names, will be handed to voters in the first Demo cratic primary June 2. It’s anew record for size of the voting sheet which bears the names of candidates for nomination. On | June 23, however, it will be trimmed to a mere slip of paper because when the second primary comes around there will be only two candidates’ names in the va rious races. The others will have been eliminated. ' Names of 101 candidates for I state-wide offices will appear on I every ballot. In addition, there [will be names of candidates for | congress from the five districts I which will appear on ballots within the districts, and names of candi dates for district delegates to the ‘Democratic national convention. Added to all Hhis will bo the j names of scores of candidates for i county offices. This is the “big election” year, i and every elective office except j United States senators, four jus-; j tices of the supreme court two i railroad commissioners, some cir-i I cuit judges and state attorneys and ,18 state senators is to bo filled. j Fourteen for Governor , Fourteen candidates for gover nor lead the parade. The winner! j will oppose the Republican nomi ; nee in November, j So far as the salaried offices! I are concerned, it’s a contest l among men this year. There is .NO woman candidate. In the; , counties, however, some races have women aspirants. I In its history, Florida has had j (only one woman in major office.! ■ She was Mrs. Ruth Bryan Owen, i j who represented the fourth dis i trict hi Vongffcss. She was defeat- i ;ed for re-election and afterwards j i became American minister to! | Denmark. To End in First Primary i Some ox Ijhe nominating con | tests will end with the first pri i mary because there are only two | candidates. In a few the incum- j bents were unopposed for re- i nomination. Republicans will offer 11 can-; didates for major offices in No-; ] ver.iber. They are governor, con-, ' gress front the first, fourth and; fifth districts, and seven candi i dates for presidential electors. j Regarding Women i Indications last week that Flor-j ida women were NOT anxious to ; pay their own expenses as dele-| gates from the state at large to' ttfie Democratic national conven- j ■■ tion were dispelled before the' i time expired for qualifying. With-: ; in the last three qualifying days,; seven women stepped into the | races, along with Mrs. Paola C.; ; Copeland of Everglades who pre-1 ; viously qualified. They are; j Frances Estelle Alford of Boni-j j fay, Edith V. Herlong of Miami, j i Madeline A. Jacobson of Talla-i j hassee, Mrs. Bertjha Lowdermilk !of Fort Myers, Mrs. Dave Starr of Oakland. Mrs. H. H. Strick land of Live Oak and Mrs. W. B. | Young of M/iami. ! Political observers ft ere say : this year also marks the first time ! a woman has sought election as a

! congressional district delegate toj j the national convention. Missj Tillie Dennard of Pensacola is j ; b’dding for election against four ; men from the third district. ! Each congressional district has; .two delegates, and there are four; men and four women delegates! i from the state at large. Calls for Big Money ! Campaign expense statements j • being filed with Secretary of; • State Robert A. Gray by candi-j , dates show the cost of a political; campaign runs into big money, j ■ Their first statements, showing expenses up to May 3, total about SIOO,OOO for state-wide and con i gressional offices. 1 There’s humor in, politics, too. A candidate said he made a speech at Daytona Beach and aft-‘ i erwards: i : “A lad of about 10 rushed up! J and said he enjoved my speech, j “I told (him I appreciated the • encouragement and then l turned! ; away. “Barely loud enough for me to him, the boy muttered: (By Amociated Press) . ‘Cheap skate. I thought he’d give 1 me at least a dime.’ ” • Every* section of the state j heard the blare of sound wagons touring city streets ami county roads advertising candidates and ; drumming up audiences for po litical speequmaking. Campaign expense statements show the costs of a soundtruek ranges from S2OO to SBOO. j It’s too late now for any of the {candidates to step out of the races ; and except to get a refund on j moßey paid for qualifying fees. If any withdraws, he must wait ! and hope for a special act of the legislature authorizing a refund. There is NO general law provid ! ing for it. i Fons A. Hathaway withdrew j from the governor’s race in 1932 just before H’ie first primary.! , State officers said they could ; NOT repay his fees. The legisla ture passed a special act giving | it. back to him. I Grand juries, state attorneys, j supervisors of registration and others pushed investigations in j several counties of fraudulent ; registrations and illegal payments of poll taxes. A few prosecutions , have been started. Where illegal ity in registration has been shown, i the name has been stricken from i tfie records.
