HERRIOT STAKES OFFICIAL LIFE ON ARMS PLAN Courageous Fight Made to Reach Agreement With Germany. BY WILLIAM PHILIP SIMMS Strlpm-Howard Forrten Editor WASHINGTON. Nov. 1— Like the late Aristide Briand. Premier Edouard Herriot has staked his official life on the chance of a rapproachment with Germany. Already French Nationalists are characterizing his new disarmament plan as “indescribable idiocy.” They claim it will make it possible for Germany to do to France in the future what Prussia did in the days of Napoleon I. Napoleon, by his dictated peace of Tilsit in 1807, forced Prussia to keep her army down to 42,000. But by a system of comp ulsory service, Intensive training and rapid rotation of recruits through this tiny force, Blu ch e r had under him a force 250,000 strong in 1815 and sealed Bonaparte's doom at Waterloo. French critics claim Herriot’s plan will pave the way for history to <repeat itself. German equality in the matter of arms, military service, militia forces and so on, they charge, will give Germany a 70 per cent superiority over France. Germany has a fast-increasing population of 651000,000 as against a stationary French population of only 40,000,000. Plays Courageous Game But Herriot, in the opinion of American diplomatic and service men, is playing not only a courage ous, but an exceedingly statesman like game. Like Briand, he realizes that France either must reach a live and-let-live understanding jvith her powerful neighbor across the Rhine, and now, or prepare for a bloody, and perhaps lasing, showdown. American diplomacy <s understood to share this view, and to have said as much in Paris, Berlin and Lon don. It holds that it would be far wiser for France and Germany to get to gether now on some definite arms reduction and limitation accord than to let nature take its course • Bnd await the explosion. If Germany binds herself now. along with the rest of the world, to keep her armaments down, France would have the world with her should German- violate the agreement. But, should Germany remain out si. : such understanding, she never would stop until she had perfected a war machine big enough to blast her way to Paris. Viewed Far-Sighted Plan Premier Herriot now' is viewed as taking this far-sighted view. He is said to be convinced that France’s best interests lie in an entente making it difficult, if not impossi ble, for either country to wage ag ✓ gressive w'ar against the other. Briand labored in the same direc tion. With Gustav Stresemann, German minister of foreign affairs, he almost achieved his goal. But Hitler’s Nazis and other Ger man Nationalists spoiled everything by warlike gestures, and Briand, de rided by many of his own people for allowing himself to be led into “a Teutonic ambush.” w r as discredited politically, and died of a broken heart. Herriott is risking the same fate, and knows it. But because he is doing it, despite the peril, his pres- tige here never w r as higher. C. 0.

City Plants Push Fear Drive; Mills ‘Hopes’ Hoover Will Win; County Campaign Goes in High The Republican campaign of fear forced its way into four more In dianapolis companies Monday aft ernoon. According to reports from the companies, G. O. P. leaders seek to swing more than 1.000 votes to their parties through this form of political intimidation. Two industrial plants on the west side of the city, with more than 500 employes affected, passed word along the line that it would be “advisable” to vote the Republican ticket. In both instances, it was reporte'd leaders of the movement named high officials of the companies as being among active workers In the local campaign for President Hoover. In a downtown firm, more than 200 employes were informed of the organization of a Hoover club and were instructed to “work for the club.” Heads of this company were reported to have supported the club organization move. The fourth company, according to current reports, carried the order beyond employes. This company, which has several hundred repre sentatives on city streets throughout the day and night, not only is said to have directed employes how to vote, but instructed them to carry the word to hundreds of persons with whom they come in contact daily. Investigation revealed that, al though the employes were not threatened openly with loss of their jobs, a large number of them de clared they believed it “would pay” to follow orders. According to reports from one of the industrial firms, only the “wavering” element was approached. Sure-fire Republicans and Demo crats, it is said, were not solicited, but any employe, who was consid ered doubtful, was approached. Herriot Mills Is Hopeful By Bcripps-Howard Newspaper Alliance WASHINGTON, Nov. I.—Presi dent Herbert Hoover will be re elected next Tuesday if the drift to him gains sufficient momentum. This is the opinion of Treasury Secretary Ogden L. Mills, who, next to the President himself, is regarded as the G. O. P.s most effective cam paigner. It is the first time that Mills has cast any doubt on the outcome. “Everything is moving in one direction—all to Hoover,” Mills said. “The only question left is whether it is moving fast enough.” Mills says wherever he speaks he is told that Hoover is gaining. “I get this,” he adds, “from peo ple who are not kidding me.” The question with him is the one which continues to bother G. O. P. leaders, whether Hoover can regain sufficient ground to upset the over whelming Roosevelt victory forecast by the Literary Digest and other polls. Mills admits that A1 Smith's re cent campaigning has done Roose velt “some good in Massachusetts. ’ Original Hoover Man Quits By Scripps-Howard Newspaper Alliance WASHINGTON, Nov. I.—-Presi dent Hoover has been deserted in the present campaign by Louis Bartlett, prominent San Francisco attorney and the man who called the first “Hoover for President” meeting in the United States. That meeting took place in 1920 and was addressed by the late President David Starr Jordan of Stanford university. Bartlett, for merly mayor of Berkeley, Cal., and long a member of the National Popular Government League, has broken with the President over the power issue. “Hoover’s record, particularly on the issue of power, has placed his sympathies with the exploiters, not the exploited.” says Bartlett, prais ing Roosevelt’s stand on the issue. ‘Suggests’ Hoover Vote By Beripps-Howard Newspaper Alliance HOUSTON, Tex., Nov. I.—The Texas Chemical Company has post ed a notice suggesting its employes vote for Hoover. “We feel,” says the notice, “that unless the present administration is retained, it will necessitate clos ing some of our plants which will throw' many men out of w r ork.” The concern is owned by the Stuaffer Chemical Company o f California.

To this covenant of our national platform I thoroughly subscribe,” he said. Referring to efforts of business men to coerce employers to vote the Republican ticket, Van Nuys said: “I am going to be elected by the votes of the laboring man, the farm er and the soldier, and not by those influenced by special interests. “I promise to give you a senator representing the people and not a senator who is a lobbyist for the manufacturers’ association.” Million Collected By Vnitcd Brest WASHINGTON, Nov.

Thomas Lashes Sales Tax By l nited Press BUFFALO. N. Y.. Nov. I.—Nor man Thomas, Socialist candidate for President, took his campaign to Syracuse and Rochester today, after charging that both major parties were pledged to the sales tax, which he said puts the “burden of a stag gering deficit on the shoulders of the workers.” "Even the unemployed, so long as they can purchase anything at all. are victims of this tax,” Thomas asserted in a speech here Monday night. “It is, in other words, a tax deliberately designed to permit the property owning classes to unload their share of the tax burden on to the backs of the workers.” Thomas favored income taxes, as sessed at the British rate on earn ings between $70,000 and $250,000 annually.

Harrison Asks Decision Backing his stand on prohibition, William Henry Harrison, Repub lican candidate for congress, in several speeches Monday nignt, sug gested "we put this thing to the people and get it over with.” “If the wets win it will mean the forming of another definite plan for temperance and recognition that the old plan was not adequate. But if the drys again can carry the country it will mean elimination of corrupt officers whom I have heard have taken money merely not to see trucks pass through their dis tricts,” Harrison said. LESLIE DODGES LUESSE ACTION Sends Petition for Release to Farm Trustees. Theodore Luesse, Communist can didate for Governor, will not get to vote for himself. Governor Harry G. Leslie has taken .his petition for remission of fine and sent it to the board of trustees for action Nov. 9. Election day is Nov. 8. So Luesse will remain a prisoner on that date at the Indiana state farm. He served a year’s sentence and has been serving a SSOO fine at $1 a day since last May.

Last week Baker signed the pe tition for remission of fine, which already had the signatures of other county officials. Leslie told a committee of citizens, seeking Luesse’s release on the grounds that he is a political prisoner, that Baker's signature w r as essential. When they returned with it he forwarded the matter to the trus tees. MOVE TO PUT TEETH IN LAWYER STATUTES Bar Association to Study Proposal to Give Courts More Leew’ay.

Chilly, wet weather carried a policeman's night-stick Monday night and did more to prevent Hal loween pranks and merriment than the entire force of Chief Mike Mor rissey could do. The police department reported the night one of “ease,” with calls of vandals, taking gates and porch furniture, at a minimum. A few “tick-tackers," or small groups of youngsters with pump kin faces shadowing candles braved the rain, but for the most part the merry’-merry of the evening of witches and goblins was confined to indoor parties and dances.
