MIDDLE WEST’S VOTE TO DECIDE HOOVER'S FATE Indiana, Illinois, Michigan Wisconsin and Ohio Are ‘Key States.’ RY RAYMOND CLAPPER, I'nlled Pt Staff Orrepondf nt (Copyright. 1832. by United Press) WASHINGTON. Oct. 10—Politi cal managers on both sides believe the presidential election will be de cided by a block of 100 electoral votes in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin. President Hcxjver thinks this (?roup is so important that the White House made known over the week-end that he will make his next major campaign speech in Ohio. He carried all five states four years ago. But confidential reports to the United Press regarding conditions in these states now assert that large numbers of voters are disappointed and are registering Democratic. Some of the reports say that the feeling is more anti-Hoover than pro-Roosevelt. Economic questions dominate the reports with only some incidental attention to prohibition, on the whole. See 300,000 Majority The intensity of the fight in Ohio is revealed by the fact that Post master-General Walter F. Brown, who managed the President's pre convention campaign, and who was to have been an important figure in the national campaign, since has been compelled to spend much time in Ohio prodding his own state forces. He is working like a ward politi cian trying to save his own state. “From all present signs, Ohio will go to Roosevelt,” one report said. “Some estimate the possible major ity at 300.000. The party is doing very little to help Hoover, his name being mentioned only when neces sary at meetings.” The Republican hope is in their candidate for Governor, David S. Ingalls, a lively young man in his thirties. With his flying, polo play ing. handshaking tours, frankness, wealth and independence of the machine, he is credited with the best chance to survive. Watson Desserts Hoover Republicans in Indiana indicate concern over their chances. Sen ator James E. Watson, Republican senate leader, is making the fight of his life. In trying to save Watson, Mr. Hoover has been left, to shift for himself. He crossed the state twice on the Des Moines trip this week, and made several rear-platform appearances on the return trip. But Watson never went near the presidential train. In his campaign speeches he is stressing the home loan bank sys tem. In Indiana it is referred to as Watson’s child, in. Washington as Mr. Hoover’s. Reports say a Democratic victory is likely to sweep the entire stare ticket in with Roosevelt.. Illinois for Roosevelt Reports of a Roosevelt landslide in Illinois are based on the anti- Hoover leanings of the Small- Thompson Republican organization, business conditions, farm depression and prohibition. “From what I hear since coming home,” said a business man. “it looks ve: auch like a Roosevelt landslide in Inois, although plenty of re spe ble Democrats seem a bit afr of him and his following.” C inarily Democrats cast around 350,u00 votes in the Illinois state primary, but this year about P50,- 000 participated. Though some are forecasting that Governor Roosevelt will carry Michigan, other persons who know the state thoroughly challenge this. Couzons Not to Bolt “The Democratic vote in the re cent primary increased amazingly, but heretofore it has been so low that even an amazing increase does not seem to bring it within hailing distance of the Republican vote,” one report said. Democrats are expected, however, to gain one congressional seat—in the First district. Republicans nominated a Negro, due to the fact that the other Republican voters, largely foreign born, went into the Democratic primary. Senator James Couzens, inde pendent Republican, though at odds with Mr. Hoover in some respects, has indicated no intention of bolt ing the ticket. Kohler Ignores President In Wisconsin. anti-Hoover, rather than pro-Roosevelt, senti ment. is reported to be swinging the state for the Democratic presiden tial candidate. The regular con servative Republican candidate for Governor, Walter J. Kohler, the bathtub manufacturer, is regarded as having a reasonable chance. “There is no doubt that Hoover is very much out of favor in Wis consin,” one report stated. “The Republican movement for Kohler recognizes this fact to such an ex tent that the Hoover campaign and the Kohler campaign are being conducted by two separate organi zations. In other words, Kohler doesn’t try to carry Mr. Hoover along with him." The situation depends somewhat on the attitude the La Follettes decide to take toward the national race. They always have been anti- Hoover, but they have not indicated whether they will support Roosevelt who must have progressive votes to carry the state. •IF YOU HAVE A JOB. HELP THOSE IN NEED’ Slogan Is Adopted for Community Fund Campaign. “The call of the community fund is an emergency appeal to those who have jobs or incomes in the interest of the city's less fortunate,” Arthur R.

JORDAN LOSES IN SUIT RULING Attorneys Overruled by Judge in Balm Case. First legal skirmish in the million dollar breach of promise suit against Arthur Jordan, Indianapolis capital ist, was lost by his attorneys today | when Superior Judge Clarence E. Weir overruled a motion to strike out parts of the complaint of Mrs. Margaret Melter, former Goshen rooming house keeper. She charges i Jordan with failing to keep a prom ise to marry her. The ruling, the first made since filing of the suit by Mrs. Melter, ; July 8, leaves for further ajudica tion the woman's charge that Jor dan declared himself "the happiest | man in America” after his alleged I promise to marry her. Weir also declined to strike from the suit a paragraph alleging that Jordan requested Mrs. Melter to adopt two children after making the alleged marriage agreement. Since filing of the suit, Jordan married Mrs. Alice B. Clarke, 5155 Central avenue. They reside in New York City. AWARD 'GAG' PRIZES $lO Goes to M. E. Marlowe in Palace Contest.

By United Pres* WASHINGTON, Oct. 10.—An at tack on former Senator James A. Reed of Missouri, who is scheduled to campaign for the election of Governor Franklin D.

The committee's statement quoted Roosevelt’s acceptance speech, which j said: “Let us feel that in everything ; we do there still lives with us. if not ; in body, the great indomitable, un | quenchable, progressive soul of our | commander-in-chief, Woodrow Wil son.” It then went on to say: “How is he found invoking the spirit of the great war President? By enrolling one of Woodrow Wil son's most implacable foes—James A. Reed of Missouri—to perform for him one of the big chores in this campaign.” The committee commended on the fact Reed had been chosen to speak to the farmers in this campaign. It asserted Reed had been an oppon ent of farm relief legislation. 26 DIE IN STORM Fishermen Off Greenland Coast Are Victims.

Sold and Guaranteed HAAG’S CUT-PRICE DRUGS TWO CONVICTS ESCAPE DURING TRIAL State’s Witnesses in ‘Sweat Box’ Case Flee From Florida Jail. By United Press JACKSONVILLE. Fla.. Oct. 10.— Two of the state’s witnesses in the trial of two convict guards for the alleged torture death of a young New Jersey convict were free to day, after a daring escape from the county jail early today. Officers have found no trace of the men, Cleo Drew and James Wofford, convicts who were state witnesses, and had been described by another convict-witness, James Travis, as “men of honor who wouldn't try to escape while they're testifying, although they've had plenty of chances.” The men, officers said, pulled a toilet out of the floor of their cell in the county jail, went through the hole and made their way to an iron barred window. They sawed the bars and used a rope made from mattresses to descend the wall to freedom. Sentenced to 33 l'ears Jailer T. C. Smythe heard a dog barking during the night and aroused the night jailer. When a checkup was made, it- was found that Drew and Wofford were gone. Wofford was committed from Dade county in September, 1930. to serve thirty-three years for armed robbery. Drew, who testified Friday at the trial, was sentenced in February of this year to serve fifteen years for breaking into private property, 1 The jail break came after the j trial of the two guards, George W. ' Courson and Solomon Higginbot ham, had been recessed at 1 p. m. Saturday until 10 a. m. today. Not Put on Stand Wofford had not been put on the j stand by the state, which is bring ing its case to a close. Maillefert died, charges the state, i as a result of cruel punishment in flicted by Courson and Higginbot ham. The convicts have testified i that Maillefert was placed in a i small structure known as a “‘sweat box.” His feet were placed in stocks that held him immovable and up right, the men said. Then a chain was placed about his neck and when the youth slumped from exhaustion, he was j choked to death. Pleaded for Aid Testimony brought out that Mail lefert first was made to walk about naked, in the rain with a heavy barrel suspended from his shoul ders. He gnawed his way to free dom, and ran away from the camp, entirely naked, the prisoners testi fied. They also said in court that when Maillefert was caught he j pleaded with civilians who had gathered, to go back to camp so he wouldn’t be killed; that Higgin botham cursed him, and threatened j to kill him if tried to run. Returning to camp the men said; Maillofert was placed in the sweat | box without food or rest and left in there for about an hour. When the door was opened, Maillefert was dead, they said. L • ■ v" ■ 0 *“P ause a moment and reason in a common- H I* your body receiving full benefit of all the oxygen you breathe ? Every human body in its vital processes needs so much oxygen every minute. Nature has arranged for this by a delicate system of balances. Every minute the lungs take in so much oxygej from the air, the heart forces so much blood into the lungs, and the hemoglobin in the red-cells of the blood pick up this oxygen and take it to the various parts of the body where it is needed in the vital processes by which the body is nourished and given energy. Normally, and in health, the system is thus supplied with just the amount of oxygen it needs. "iou know what happens if the air is shut off from your lungs so that you do not get enough oxygen into them. You stifle, you sicken, and if enough is shut off, you die. If the heart fails to send enough blood to the lungs to take up the oxygen, you know how serious that is. How the lungs pant to get more oxygen in to compensate for the slowing down of the blood supply! The thing which you may not know is that the amount of oxygen the blood can take up and carry away from the lungs depends on the number of red blood-cells and the hemoglobin which they contain. If you suffer from a deficiency of hemoglobin— low blood count or low red-cell count it is com monly called —the supply of oxygen to the blood is diminished just as effectually as if you had shut off the air supply to the lungs, or as if you suffered from heart disease. Nature strives to compensate against a deficiency of hemoglobin, as it does against an impaired heart action. It pays to keep the red-blood-cells and their hemoglo bin content up to normal.

The reason of this is that the hemo globin—in the red-cells of the blood— acts as a carrying agent. It takes up the vital oxygen in the lungs and conveys it to all parts of the body— even lo the skin —and brings the accumulated body poison back to the lungs to be thrown off, Think what this means to you With the right amount of hemoglobin in your red-blood-cells, your body will have the benefit of more of the vital and puri fying oxygen and the poisonous carbon dioxide will be more rapidly thrown off.
