FLOOR OF r. s. sen ate'
Heflin of Alabama Challenges
Robinson's leadership of
Demoeratic Fart ion
- Rebuked in vigorous terms by
his party leader. Joseph T. Robin
son, for his attack upon the Ro
man Catholic church and Governor
Al E. Smith. Senator Thomas Hef
lin of Alabama, in return chal
lenged the democratic senate lead
ership of the Arkansan.
The challenge wa3 accepted im
mediately and Senator Robinson
iesued a call for a party confer
ence tomorrow to eettle the issue.
He declared openly on the floor of
the senate that if HeHin could dic
tate who should lead the minority
"that party can get someone other
than myself to lead it here."
The most bitter exchanges the
senate had heard in years broke
suddenly after the Alabaman had
spent two and a half hours in a
new attack upon the Roman Cath
olic church what he terms its "po
litical machine," and upon Tamany
Hall and Governor Smith.
Robinson Flays Heflin
Rising before a crowded, cham
ber and galleries, the democratic
leader took Heflin to task for his
repeated attacks upon the Catholic
church and the New York gover
nor and with all the vigor at his
command declared that "he does
his country no 6ervice who lights
the torch or sounds" the cry of re
ligious intolerance and persecu
tion." .
The massive Alabaman was on
his feet frequently with protests
and threats while an almost, full
membership of the eenate and
southern and New York members
of the house, gathered on seats in
the rear of the chamber, sat in al
most stunned silence.
Immediately after the senate
convened Heflin obtained recogni
tion for a defense of himself
against imputations in documents
published in the Hearst newspa
pers and purporting to be of Mex
ican origin. He attributed publi
cation of the documents to a con
spiracy of the Roman Catholic
church against him.
Attacks Pope, Smith
Then he began a doubled bar
reled attack upon the "Pope of
Rome and Al Smith" and warned
his party not to nominate Smith
for the presidency.
Charging that the Catholics of
all countries would contribute
funds to Smith's support. Heflip
asserted that they already were
spending money in the south and

Organization of a Herbert Hoo

such a club and promising their

The list of men backing this
movement even before it is fair
ly launched. Is an impressive one,
and indications are that within a
very few days a mass meeting will
becalled, and then opportunity
will be given for all supporters of
the former Salemite, who has nev

city where he obtained his earlier
education, to sign up as members
of the club.

Salem will be among the first
communities in the state to organ

administrator and present minister
of commerce. There is however, a
club already formed at Newberg.
Certainly there is plenty of rea

well in the lead for con.-idoration
as a presidential candidate in ail
