HOOVER SEIZES ON 'SUP' MADE! BY ROOSEVELT Hint That Supreme Court Is Republican-Ruled May Be Answered Here. BY WALKER STONE Timi— Stall Wrltfr ABOARD HOOVER'S SPECIAL TRAIN,'-Oct. 28.—President Hoo ver's Republican advisers who have j helped him prepare the speech he j will deliver in Indianapolis tonight | were predicting freely that the speech easily would eclipse the ad dress which Governor Albert C. | Ritchie is to deliver before a rival audience. The President's associates are counting heavily on the belief that Ritchie will concentrate on prohi- j bition, for many years the favorite ‘ subject of the free state Governor. | Hoover, it is said, will deliver an j omnibus address, touching on as many issues as possible, with par ticular emphasis on the tariff and the farm problem. May Spring Sensation One unconfirmed rumor—and it will be the sensation of the speech if the rumor proves true—is that the President will take the oppor tunity in the Indianapolis address to denounce Governor Roosevelt for the passing reference made by the Democratic candidate in Balti more Tuesday night to the United States supreme court. Republican -spokesmen through out the, country are seizing upon this obvious slip of the tongue as the "big Democratic campaign blunder” wjiich for months they predicted. It is the old mountain of a mole hill strategy. No one who was in the Armory at Baltimore Tuesday night thought there was any sin ister motive in Roosevelt's mention of the supreme court. Ridiculing the Republican argu ment that the failure of the ad ministration to defeat the depres sion was due to the Democratic house of representatives in the last session,' Roosevelt pointed out that for many years previous the Repub licans had control of the executive branch of the federal government, of both houses of congress, "and, I might add, of the supreme court as well.” Just an Afterthought The reference to the supreme court was not in his prepared man uscript and he uttered it as though rounding out a sentence when he looked up from his manuscript and smiled out over his audience. Persons close to the President say that he intends to make the most of his rival’s slip of the tongue, and attack him bitterly, charging tkat he slandered the supreme tribunal by insinuating that politics plays a part in its decisions. If the President docs not men tion this at Indianapolis, it is said he will do so in his New York speech next Monday. t The Hoover strategy does not call for discussion of prohibition in the Indianapolis speech. His advisers believe that prohibition, as an is sue of the campaign, is fading rapidly into the background and that economic issues are moving to the front. Indiana having large agricultural and industrial interests, it would be logical for Hoover to stress the al leged benefits of the Republican protective tariff and outline, as he did at Des Moines, his proposals for farm relief. Reports from Indftmapolis that Hoosier Democrats are trying to or ganize a demonstration for Ritchie that will outshine the Hoover demon stration are not taken seriously by the presidential party. They say it is ludicrous to believe that any speaker can draw in a midwestern city a larger crowd than the President of the United States. They argue that the people of the midwest do not often have oppor tunity to see and hear a President and that the magic of his high office will draw thousands of the opposing political faith. Senator James E. Watson and a large crowd of Hoosiers are ex pected to board the special when it crosses the Indiana line about noon. Ample accommodations have been provided. Nine Cars on Train Sie Hoover special is a nine-car i—the President's private car, a lounge car, a club car, four sleepers, a diner, and a car for the crew. In the President’s immediate party are Mrs. Hoover; two of the President's secretaries, Lawrence Richey and Walter H. Newton; the President’s administrative assistant, French Strother, the man who helps write the President's speeches; for mer Senator Henry J. Allen of Kansas, publicity director of the Re publican national committee; Dr. Joel T. Boone, the President's phy sician; Miss Mildred Hall, Mrs. Hoover's secretary; three other White House stenographic sec retaries, Myra McGrath, Ann Shankey and Dorothy Eastman, and a half dozen secret service men. The party also includes twenty eight newspaper men and photo graphers and seven attaches of the Republican national committee. RATS MUST GO FROM STATEHOUSE.

Johnson tonight will appeal to Progressive Republicans of Cali fornia to cast aside party lines in a rebuke to what he has termed the ultra-conservatism of President Hoover. His stand already has been in dorsed by some state leaders of or ganized labor, and by his lieuten ants in the progresssive wing of the Republican party. The practical effect of the sen ator’s public indorsement of Roose velt in changing votes has political observers guessing. For Franklin D. Roosevelt to carry California on Nov. 8, Demo ' rats must make serious Inroads on e registered Republican voting rength. There are 1,565,264 Re blican voters and 1,161,482 Dem •jrats.

Lauds Hoover i Hu I nit Id Pr< ss WASHINGTON, Oct. 28. —Re election of President Hoover “Will I set the feet of our people on the right road,” said Governor-General ! Tneodore Roosevelt of the Philli pines Thursday in a campaign ad dress at Manila. The Republican national commit tee, which gave out the text, ar ranged for the address to be broad cast in the United States. Roosevelt reviewed what he con sidered the major accomplishments of the Hoover administration, list ing: Maintenance of wage scales, pro mulgation of a policy of building "useful public works,” national direction of welfare and relief work, extension of the resources of the federal loan credit banks for the aid of the farmer, maintenance of the gold standard, formation of the national credit association, creation of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. Van Nuys to Tour City Three meetings have been in cluded in the itinerary of Frederick Van Nuys, Democratic nominee for United States senator, who will make a tour of the city Monday -night. Announcement was made' from Democratic Marion county head quarters today that Van Nuys first will speak at Twenty-ninth and Clifton streets, at a combined meeting of Fourth ward and Wayne township Democrats. The second meeting will be at 227 North New Jersey street. Later he will address Warren township Democrats at the Cumberland com munity house. Hits Watson Defenders Criticism * today was hurled at labor union members who have an nounced their support of Senator James E. Watson, by Fred Galloway of the Labor Anti-Watson League. Galloway’s rebuke was aimed spe cifically at Joseph M. Taylor, mem ber of Indianapolis Typographical Union No. 1, and at James H. Drill of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, No. 699. Both men have assailed Galloway for his opposi tion to Watson. "The American Federation of Labor officially has announced its opposition to Watson,” Galloway de clared. "I believe that Marion county union men should do the same.” Harrison Visits Here Senator Pat Harrison.

The Magic Number—266 Two hundred sixty-six electoral votes—one more thani half the total —are necessary to elect a President this November. About everybody in the country is busy with pencil and paper and a list of all the forty-eight states, figuring out how either Hoover or Roosevelt can secure that number.

BY MARGUERITE YOUNG Times Staff Writer NEW YORK, Oct. 28.—Rose Pas tor Stokes, ill, sat in her cabin in the Connecticut woods today, quiet ly envisaging a “United States of Soviet America.’’ “I’ll pull through,” she said, “I’m determined. I must see a Soviet America. I will see the workers here rise to power’and build their own world as they are doing in Soviet Russia—a world in which there will be no unemployment, hunger, in security, or war.” The “Rose of the Ghetto,” who led half a dozen strikes or more, was sentenced to ten years in the Missouri state prison for violation of the federal espionage act and figured in Socialist activities for years before she became s a Com munist, still is in close touch with the radical movement, although she has been ill for three years. Her voice today was only an echo of that which reached the highest perched listener in Carnegie Hall those dusty years ago. But its modulation was the same as when her war-time agitation cre ated political sensations as great as those that rocked society when she was married to—and twenty years later divorced from —James Graham Phelps Stokes, millionaire philan-* thropist. “This is the day for which all his tory has waited, the day when the end of capitalism is in sight,” she observed. “This is the crisis out of which there is only one true, per manent way—the workers’ way, a United States of Soviet America. “And the Communist party—that is, the Communist International in its various sections throughout the world—is the leader of the working class. The embattled farmers out west are marching under the slogans of the Communist party; the B. E. F. struggle for the bonus can not be mentioned without citing the lead ership of the Communists. Yes, this is the day. for this crisis is different from others. “Perhaps it won’t be today or to morrow, but you know that workers will not starve forever.” Would they “starve"—under the capitalist system—say, fifty years? “No,” she answered certainly. “Herbert Hoover and Franklin Roosevelt, of course, offer no way Indiana university Thursday, Nov. 3, at an open meeting at 8 p. m. in Assembly hall.

(Code No.) lAL SMITH RIPS INTO HOOVER; RAPSPOLICIES Urges Throng of 20,000 in Boston to Vote for ‘Frank Roosevelt/ j Bp United Press BOSTON, Mass., Oct. 28.—“ The unqualified, full and complete sup port of Franklin D. Roosevelt and John N. Garner” was asked of the voters of Massachusetts Thursday night by Alfred E. Smith in an ad dress to 20,000 of his followers. The former New York Governor’s speech, made with his characteristic vigor, denounced the Republican administration, attacked President Hoover’s Detroit speech, defended his previous utterance charging the Republican management with “bigotry,” and urged all Democrats to support the national ticket. “I was not satisfied with that Chicago convention,” Smith de clared, “and I know you were not satisfied with it. But listen! We settle these troubles in our party. We don’t wan’t any advice, and above everything else, we war# no sympathy from Senator Moses or from his Republican cohorts.’' Attacks Detroit Speech Smith attacked President Hoover —and once more brought in the name of Roosevelt—wherv he dis cussed the President’s statements regarding veterans’ relief, in his Detroit speech. He said: "The President said in answer to the Democratic candidate, Frank Roosevelt, that even if he stopped all public works, he finally would have to take $500,000,000 from the veterans, and he said that would be a grave injustice. “A grave injustice to whom? To the taxpayers? That is the gross injustice, because there are men receiving money from the federal government today that not only never left this country, but never saw any kind of service, were never injured in the service, or ]tl|ve no disability directly traceable to the service.” Lashes at Tariff “Let us give the spe’ech another ! look,” he continued. “He says ‘it j can be demonstrated that the tide has turned, and that the gigantic forces of depression are in retreat.’ "Why, the real fact is, if you take New York as a barometer, and it ought to be a fair one, there are more people out of work today than there were at this time a year ago.” The former Democratic candidate attacked the tariff as keeping goods cut of the country, pleading that “the only way they (foreign na tions) can pay us is in goods.” "And the funny part of it is,” he continued, “that all the high ad ministrative officers in Washington refer to the "plight of our neighbors abroad.’ And when they are sink ing and calling for a life preserver, the national administration throws them an anchor.” Raps B. E. F. Tragedy Smith criticised the administra tion’s handling of the bonus army, and said it was the place of the President "as commander-in-chief of the United States army, to go out and talk to them and explain the situation of the finances of the country with respect to the claims they were making.” In defense of his Newark speech, in which he charged that the Re publican campaign management had been responsible for “bigotry” in the 1928 campaign, Smith said: “I proposed to show that the money required to spread the prop aganda of religious bigotry in 1928 was supplied by the Republican committee. Smith concluded with another appsal that ’"the salvation of the country” depends on the success of the Democratic ticket,” and urged election of his party’s nominees for i all national and state offices. enraged tenants, restaurant waiters and musical instrument workers in strikes from 1907 on.
