HOOVER PLACED ON FIRING LINE UNTIL ELECTION Managers Convinced He Must Bear Most of Cam paign Burden. BV RAYMOND CLAPPER f'niipd Ptpa Stiff Corrpi>ondfnt WASHINGTON. Oft. 7.—Presi dent Hoover's speech to women voters today is part of the plan of keeping him fighting on the firing line until election day. He will be talking here or on the road at frequent intervals. His next campaign trip is expected to be taken into Ohio, Indiana and possibly Michigan. Republican managers have con vinced him that he would have to bear the main burden of the cam paigning from now on. Cabinet officers and the Vice- President attract little attention when they speak now. Newspaper prominence goes to the Democratic presidential candidate unless President Hoover himself is talking. So from now on, more of the Re publican publicity will be tied in directly to President Hoover. Mr. Hoover has convinced him self that he can put on a creditable political appearance. Formerly, he thought he was not adapter to political speech making. Now he sees that crowds will turn out and chepr. At Des Moines, for the first time in a ma.jor address, there was in terplay between him and his audi ence. Politicians everywhere report ex ceptional interest in politics this year. Many men out of work, or work ing part time, have little to think about except troubles. They wonder what the trouble is. They have no money to spend on amusements. Politics becomes their diversion. When there was money for mov ies, for automobile rides, for books, newspapers, magazines, for radio sets, nobody wanted to be bothered by anything as dreary as politics. 1 But now, even the jokes of polit- | ical speakers are better than no j jokes at all. And possibly voters find sardonic amusement in listen- j ing to the fiambuoyant promises. The Broadway success "Os Thee T King." has started an army of political satirists to work. For those! who can afford the price there are ' plays, movies, books in growing I numbers which find politics as, funny a subject as prohibition was j until its possibilities as a source of | humor were completely exhausted. [ All of which forecasts the most, intense finish of any presidential campaign in years. Mutton is the principal meat of the Navajo Indians from childhood, and fhpy show little interest in a change of meat diet.

Near-beer was placed on sale, le gally, in Alabama today for the first time in seventeen years. The sta f e legislature overrode Governor B. M. Miller's veto of a bill repealing the law. which pro hibited the sale of anything that “looks like, smells like or tastes like beer.'' The Governor warned that le galization of "near-beer" would be "an entering wedge against the state's dry laws,” and would in crease the difficulties of enforcing the prohibition laws. The bill, which allcw’s cne-half of 1 per cent alcohol, was passed over the veto, 64 to 30. in the house, and 21 to 10 in the senate. Distributors raced to be the first to sell the brew.

THEY TELL ME'JU 1 So Drip the Crocodile Tears FROM what tell me, the Hcosier Republicans are greatly disappointed in Alfred E. Smith. Last week they were telling every one willing to listen that Smith is a very great man and that he got i a raw deal. Today their opinion of Smith has lessened greatly. I wonder why? Can the reconciliation with Roosevelt Tuesday have had any thing to do with it? Last Saturday night Senator James E. Watson, who through close association with his own self, should know something about th? difference between a statesman and a politician, said that "Smith is the greatest statesman in the Demo cratic party.” Now his opinion has changed. Last week, if there had been some Einsteinian device by which time could be turned back and a man elected President in 1928 by voting for him in 1932. there is little doubt that Alfred E. Smith, and not Her bert Hoover, would be the incum bent of the White House today. At least, that is how they talked around Republican state headquar ters. a a a The number of Republicans who were being swept off their feet by a glowing passion for Smith up un til Tuesday was really extraordi nary. It w r as a passion w'hich be came a devouring flame when ac companied. strangely enough in so many cases, by a strong dislike for Franklin D. Roosevelt. That's why it was such a great pity that the Republicans couldn't have voted last week for A1 Smith in 1928. There are millions of Democrats, also, especially in Indiana, who very well could profit by a little relativistic juggling with the facts. They are the Democrats who in 1928 could not vote for Smith be cause he was running, but now have discovered what a really great man he is because he is not run ning. nan Somebodv, somewhere, once told a story about Voltaire which is ap propriate to the Smith situation. A distinguished Frenchman, cor dially detested by the great satirist, died. Friends of Voltaire insisted that- the occasion called for an ex pression of condolence from him. After refusing to accede to their requests for some time. Voltaire consented to issue a statement. Here is what he said: "I just have been informed that Mr. Blank is dead. He was a sturdy patriot, a gifted writer, a loyal friend, and an affectionate husband and father—provided he really is : dead.” „ But Smith, to the consternation of his newly gained ardent ad mirers. seems to be very much alive indeed. And it's strange how rap idly the ardor has cooled. Wonder why? A convenient way of sealing a bottle is to din the cork neck of the bottle in melted paraffin.
