From the far corners of the Na tion men and women of great and \ snv. ll degree came to bid him I Godspeed upon the journey rout- ! eri for him by the Republican; party. The setting for his official noti-! fication and for the delivery' of his j first message to the voters of I America was of his own choosing, j here among the hills where he won the first struggles of an orphaned boyhood.

The scene itself was laid in a i vast bowl erected long after he ! had completed his owm school j days at this picturesque univer- j sity. and affording room for a | crowd far exceeding in numbers : any that has attended a similar j ceremony in this country.

In addition to the notification com- : rmttee, officials of the Republican na- \ tional committee, including Dr Hubert Work, the chairman will be gathered on the speakers' platform, while other party leaders will be seated in places j esp daily reserved in a nearby section of 'he athletic bowl Surrounded by members of his fam ily from this and other States and house guests, the nominee spent the morning quietly, awaiting the hour : when he and Mrs. Hoover would leave home lor the stadium, a mile or more j across the campus, Sate in the after- i noon.

A somewhat elaborate program had been arranged for the * ntretainment of the early arrivals, with daredevil stunt* by pilots of private airplanes, i which began arriving here yesterday from various parts of the State. The planes were allotted two hours from noon for their appearance over the stadium, but after that and with the beginning of a daylight fireworks display, they were under orders to keep outside a radius of two miles, so that there would be no possibility for the dronings of their propellers to inter fere v.;th the speeches Police planes were on hand to see that this regulation was obeyed.

HURRICANE SPENDS ITS FURY ON COAST Touth Carolina Feels Waning Power of Gale—Parts of Florida Flooded. By the Associated tress, j ATLANTA, Gtl August 11. The I storm which orig nated almost a week 1 ! ago as a tropical hurricane in Die ! : Caribbean was sluggishly uncoiling itself | along the South Carolina coast today. , j while parts of Florida, worst sufferer j : along a capricious path of destruction, j ; still labored under the scourge of flood j | waters. In the 19-mile stretch between the ! | Florida Power Corporation's huge dam , at Irglis. Fla., and the Gulf 200 fam ilies were evacuating their homes under j a warning that one of the flood gates j of the structure would be lowered late ! today to avert disaster. Necessity of the step became apparent ! when the lake behind the dam, bur- j dened by the steadily rising Withla- j cocchee River, mounted claser toward the loot of depth between safety and danger. While it was believed by W. C. j Howell, assistant production manager in j charge of the constant watch at the j dam. that only one open gate would j iclieve the situation, all three will be j lowered if necessary. The danger point is expected between 4 and 5 p.m. today. Part of Town to Suffer. Part of the town of Inglis will suffer from miner inundation, it was said, and a power plant below the dam and major ;. nlant will be flooded. It was believed j that current could ,be furnished by ! hooking into other lines operated by j the corporation in this territory, how- j ever. While Florida generally began to t ■ emerge from the discomfiture occa ! stoned by ihe storm, still another spot [ I :m the east coast around the north end . 1 of Lake Okeechobee on the fringe of j , the Everglades was bearing a heavy | j burden of flood water. Although the j muddy sheet oi water was subsiding, a i road between Okeechobee City and the i v a ke was dvnamited last night to di vert the water from 1.000 fertile acres west of the town. Already a 30-mile i stretch between Okeechobee and the ! east coast near Jupiter was a solid sheet of slowly receding water. Red Cross : officials at Palm Beach had sent sev - j ; eral rescue expeditions into the area j | and fed with difficulty a hundred or more refugees who had been stranded i on high ground. Damage in the area was believed to ! be m excess of that caused by the 1926 hurricane, although limited almost ex j clusively to flood conditions. Fear for | the safety of four men reported miss : ing in the Okeechobee area subsided j when the men were found. No major : casualties resulted in the territory. Highways Repaired. Elsewhere in the State, highways were I being repaired, homes re-roofed and the ; situation generally was approaching i normal Damage to citrus crops in the i rich central area ranged around the 25 per cent mark in spots., although not ; yet definitely estimated. While no 1 deaths were reported as a result of the ; storm in Florida, there was still no word i ! of Robert Holland, former British Roy- ; al Flying Corps aviator and a com- j panion. who left Nassau Wednesday for j j the mainland It was believed they j | perished. , . i Alone the path of the storm is south Georgia, north Georgia and South Car*- olina, it was a story of wrecked com munication lines, unroofed homes and potential food conditions There came reports of seven casualties, all persons caught in storm-flattened homes. The storm, which struck Florida Tues day morning from the southeast and i crossed the cent ral part of that State Wednesday, spent Thursday darting about the Gulf of Mexico. Yesterday it began curving northeastward and soon , was taking a destructive course through south Georgia. It had diminished in intensity, how ever, and the destruction was corre spondingly less through that section, A gale of 30 to 40 miles velocity jar hour, however, was accompanied by dreneh . mg rains and as a consequence, tlx towns of Moultrie, Thomasvilie and Macon suffered consldt rabie damage. Flood warnings were issued along the Ocmulgce and Chaitahoochte Rivers, while highways were torn up, communi cations disrupted and trains delayed •by rerouting because of washouts Fight and one-half inches of rain fell : al Macon in 15 hours.

Y„ August 11 —At an hour this morning when ordinarily he still would have been sound asleep, Gov. Smith got back to Albany from Chi j cago, where he attended the funeral of George E. Brennan, Illinois Demo- j cratic leader. Confronted with the task of whipping j j his acceptance speech into final form, j the Democratic presidential nominee i went from the train to the executive ' mansion, where he planned during the j ; fifty and over the week end to apply j himself to that job. The governor also ; was expected, with members of his fam ily, to listen in there this evening to the address of his rival. Herbert Hoover, at the Republican nominee's notification in California. Optimistic Over Illinois. Although he went to Chicago on a nonpohtical mission, Smith received fragmentary reports during chats there with various party leaders as to the out look in the Middle West, particularly in Illinois. Floyd E. Thompson, Demo cratic nominee for governor, was among those most optimistjc about the chances of carrying Illinois In November. I As he passed through northern Indi ana and Ohio late yesterday and last 1 night. Gov. Smith, in accordance with his wishes, was met by no political lead ers. At the few stations at which his train stopped, however, he was greeted j by crowds of varying sizes, and as a j rule stepped from the train to shake hands and exchange pleasantries, minus his coat and vest and wearing bedroom slippers. Although there was a tendency to keep politics to the background during the trip, the Democratic nominee was able during his journey to discuss strategy and plans with two men active ly identified with his campaign- Mayor Frank Hague of Jersey City, who is a vice chairman of the Democratic na tional committee and an intiinatet friend of the governor, and James J. Hoey of New York, one of the members of his campaign executive committee Both were travel companions of the nominee, along with William F, Kenny, who is a New York millionaire, and in whose private car the governor traveled; : James J. Riordan another New York I friend, and Smith's son Arthur. Debate Also on Hand. On his return to Albany, which for the present is his campaign seat, the governor had before him not only many j hours of work polishing off his accept* I ance speech which will be delivered j here a week from Wednesday evening, | but decisions on other campaign de | velopments. Among these were the question of a ! debate on his political career with Dr. i John Roach Slraton, Baptist minister j |of New York, which Smith himself j I proposed should lie held in StratonY, j I church, and which the clergyman has; I suggested he laid also in St. Patrick's!

North Aids South ! | To End Elopement Os Southern Girl I I Chicagoan Helps Atlantan With Worthless Warrant Get Daughter Back 1 By ths Associated Press. CHICAGO, August 11.—East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet; but North and South is a different story. They met yesterday in the sheriff’s office Dr. Word Red wine of Atlanta, Ga„ 'B4, and Charles Peters, chief | deputy sheriff of the County of Cook, | 111. Dr Redwine had a warrant for Dr. Carl Stuart-Chatham of Chicago. It charged that the Chicagoan had driven aw r ay from Atlanta in an automobile that didn't belong to him. It wasn’t the automobile Dr. Redwine wanted, how ever; it was his daughter, wno haa eloped with Dr. Stuart-Chatham. “We might replevin the automobile," suggested Chief Deputy Peters, “but we could hardly replevin your daughter. The warrant is worthless in this State.” T am from the South, sir," said Dr. Redwine. “This is an affair of honor. Dr. Stuart-Chatham is twice my daugh ter’s age. He has had two other wives. I have come to take my daughter home.” Chief Deputy Peters cogitated. An hour later Dr. Redwine and a deputy confronted Dr. and Mrs. Stuart-Chat ham. “You are going home with me.” said Dr. Redwine to his daughter as she flung both arms around his neck. ‘She is not,” interposed Dr. Stuart- Chatham. "You're not in the South now.” “No.” interrupted the deputy, darkly, j “but you might be headed that way,” | whereupon he displayed his star and i flashed the worthless warrant. That was how it was arranged. Just before leaving for Atlanta with his daughter last night Dr. Redwine paid his compliments to Chief Deputy Peters. “Your ways are different in the North,” he said, "but I must confess that in an affair of honor you Yankees I are go-getters, sir.” A’S DEFEAT NATS IN LAST GAME. 3-2 Hadiey Weakens in Ninth and Macks Pull Out Victory.

These fundament j al reactions of the President were re | vealed following published accounts of f j the move on the part of Great Britain j to bring the Kellogg international peace »i plan to the attention of the League of [ Nations. The President gave the im | pression that he did not welcome the II news ot this action on the part of the j British. Seen as League Test. | The President assumes, however, that | Great Britain’s action in referring the i treaty to the League was merely a mat i ter of general interest to ail League ; members. Nevrtheless. this move can i be accepted in the light of tending to confront the United States with the ; | League of Nations by precipitating a . | declaration concerning the Kellogg . | treaty, in principle, the latter contains j all the peace aspirations claimed for . j the League without any of its mechan . j :sm and entanglements. Therefore, the l j President cannot see how the League r I can do anything else but approve of , j the Kellogg plan. In his rather candid discussion of the j subject, the President was represented ;as .eeling that many serious-minded * citizens of this country have viewed , the League as something else potentially I than an instrument of peace, and would regard the League’s attitude toward the Kel.ogg proposal as a genuine test of its peaceful nature. Moreover, so far as any objection to the Kellogg pact Is concerned, it may be recalled that the League has not yet raised a voice against the scheme and that the initiative of J' ar outlawry program sprang from of M ’ Br ’* and - French foreign a motivating figure in the r councils of the League Then too. under article 20 of the I covenant, if the League finds the treaty I S'ffS.'h "" h ? «™ «J£e3ta& , 01 the mechanics of peace, it mav j nounce it and thereby cancel ir in so I tar as League members are concerned. i. was evident in the representations I made as to the President’s attitude that t !he only purpose he could see in the apparently premature presentation of ; the Kellogg pact to the League was to | interest member nations and the United I States. He has not at present any information from the State Depart | ment concerning such additional signs ! fortes, specifically of Spain and Russia, j although he is understood to have been j advised that Secretary Kellogg was con* i sidering additions. Considers Defense. Considerably more interest was focused on the President's reaction re garding the possible effect upon the size of the Army and Navy of the United States if it participates m the Kellogg pact than in the reference of the plan to the League. The fact that he regards the treaty as applicable only I tneagerlv. if at all. to American national defense quickly drew comment, in view of the cherished ideal of ultimate world peace and also the constant discussion of disarmament. It was explained in the President's ■ behalf that he looks upon the armed ; forces of the United States as entirely | a defense weapon, intended solely for protection of this country. It is noth* i ing more than a national police force, : according to his viewpoint Further* i more, because the Kellogg treaty is i basically a compact against attack, he , argues that it is unconcerned with the i detense program of any signatory na | tion. It was made plain by the President I that it would be far better to see the j peace treaties signed and ratified before j entering upon any discussion of hypo* * :hetleal conditions. While he antic!* | pates virtually no reduction of the American Army and Navy, even If the i treaty becomes an accomplished fact, he holds it futile to discuss such a question before the treaty is actually a living thing President Coolidge was represented as seeing no reason at this time to display any interest m the announcement of a naval agreement between Great Britain and France Wonders of the Duluth-Superior Harbor, through which passes the sec* i ond largest tonnage of any port In the 1 eountry. will be unfolded to President Coolidge during a Unit trip around the harbor if the present plans of the Superior public affairs committee work out The President ten'atively ac cepted the invitation to make such a trip when it was presented to him yes terday during ills semi-weekly v i»H to live Summer executive office - - •- ■>—— - - AIR MAIL RECORD SET.
