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
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

publican publicity will be tied in
directly to President Hoover.

Many men out of work, or work

about except troubles. They wonder
what the trouble is.
They have no money to spend on

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.

the Navajo Indians from childhood,

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
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
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
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
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.
A convenient way of sealing a
bottle is to din the cork neck of the
bottle in melted paraffin.
