TWO CENTS. SK I HOOVER IN SOUTH DAKOTA IS SEEN BY G. 0. P. Democratic Leaders Ridicule Claim, Predicting Victory by 50,000 Votes. REACTION FAVORABLE TO DES MOINES SPEECH Republicans Base Hopes Mainly on Lack of Enthusiasm for New York Governor. BY G. GOl'LD LINCOLN, Staff Correspondent of The Star. SIOUX FALLS. S. Dak., October 7. -~Maybe the miracle is to happen, after all Here in South Dakota there are signs that the Hoover-Curtis ticket Is picking up strength, and the Republi can campaign, which has been more or less somnolent, is under way. If President Hoover can carry South Da kota on November 8. he'll carry a lot of other States which are set down In the Roosevelt column today. The Hoover Des Moines speech made a marked impression in South Dakota. That goes for the State as well as for Sioux Falls. It is the word brought in by men who have driven 300 miles across the State in the last couple of days, stopping here and there arid finding the people talking favorably of the address of the President. However, if you talk to the man in the street, the cab driver, the railroad worker, the telegrapher, not to mention the farm holiday picketers who have hemmed in Sioux Falls during the last 36 hours, you will find they are still predicting that "Roosevelt will win." An Automatic Phrase. That, by the way, has become a habit, a frame of mind, out in the Northwest. The people have been say ing "Roosevelt will win" or "Hoover will lose" for so many weeks that it has become rather automatic with them. It was a good deal the same way in South Dakota back in 1924. when everybody here was saying "La Follette will carry the State." But in the end. when the votes were counted, it turned out that Mr. Calvin Coolidge had the State's electoral votes in the bag. With five weeks of the campaigning still to go, the Republican leaders in sisted today that the trick can be turned. Thev say the swing is on from Roosevelt to Hoover. But they frankly admit that the battle is not yet won. and go so far as to say that a few weeks ago the State seemed lost to Hoover 30.000 votes or more. The Democratic leaders, on the other hand, laugh at the claims of Republi can gains. They see South Dakota for Roosevelt and Garner by as high as 50.000 votes. Perhaps they are think ing in terms of September days and not November. But they are full of pep. and apparently believe what they are saying. The Republicans, when asked to give their reasons for confidence in ultimate victory of the Hoover ticket, say, first, that there is not the slightest enthusi asm for Roosevelt: that he muffed the battle in his speeches in the East; that he pronounces the word farmer "faa mer" when everybody knows that here out west the only way to pronounce it is "farrmerr." Furthermore, the Republican leaders say that their organization and State candidates are working wholly together, and that if there was a strong inclina tion in the past to avoid the Hoover candidacy and to play for the State ticket alone that time has passed. Sen ator Peter Norberk, who is a candidate for re-election, for example, at Philip, South Dakota, the other day delivered a speech which is reported to have in dorsed the Hoover ticket and all the rest of the Republican ticket. Repre sentatives Williamson and Christo pherson, both Republicans, seeking re election, are also reported to be sup Sorting the Hoover candidacy whole eartedly. and so is Gov. Green. This makes a different picture of the situa tion out here. Norbeck is particularly strong in this State, and even the Democrats admit that he may be re elected. Count on Boosevelt Sweep. The Democrats are counting on the Roosevelt "sweep," if it materializes, to carry their candidates for congressional and State office along to victory. They admit that the national ticket is stronger today than their State ticket. Your correspondent drove out the highways leading into Sioux Falls to see and talk with the farm holiday picketers. They were engaged in turn ing back all farmers hauling to the city grain and live stock. No effort (.Continued on Page 5, Column 1.)

HAGERSTÔWN, Md„ October 7.— That the Woodmen of the World Lodge of Hagerstown put in a bar and sold home-brew with the hope of making enough money to pay off the mortgage on its new building, was the statement of Scott M.

They were charged with sale and pos session of liquor and maintaining a nuisance at the lodge. The two were about to be sentenced when their attorney arose and told the court that they were not responsible for the sale, but were only employes. The court then ordered their pleas of guilty withdrawn and ordered an immediate investigation.

FOREST FIRE NEARS REFUGEE CAMP SITE New Blaze, Fanned by Stiff Wind, Breaks Out 30 Miles West of Portland. By the Associated Press. PORTLAND, Oreg . October 7 —Draw ing a new breath of life from a stiff north wind, a forest fire flared early today in the Pumpkin Ridge district, about 30 miles west of Portland, and imperiled the Red Cross tent colony sheltering families whose homes in the district already had fallen before the flames.

ARMS PARLEY BID Insists, However, That Equal Rights Claim Be Chief Subject Discussed. BY EDGAR ANSEL MOWRER. By Cable to The Star. BERLIN. October 7.—Germany ac cepts the invitation to an "equality of armaments rights conference" proposed by the British government. A note communicated to London this evening by the Reich rulers expresses this fact to the British hosts. Germany's answer is not uncondi tional acceptance, however. It insists that the German claim (or "equal | rights" be the chief subject of discus sion. Should the French demand ft* the participation of Poland and Bel glum prevail, the Germane Intend to ; raise the question with these powers as i to Just how far and to what extent they intend to disarm before commit ting themselves to any definite limita tions. It must be explained that by equal rights in armament the Germans do not mean any so purely juridical inter pretation as could be achieved by sub stituting for part 5 of the treaty of Versailles a new document containing the fame limitations. Such a purely legal equality is not what they want. They want armament limitation ac cording to the same programs and the same categories as the other power*. Thus in the list of tables which could be drawn containing each country's quota of various weapons the Germans would be willing to-have zero stand in certain German columns on condition that the other countries pledge them selves to abolish these weapons within a term of years. But the Germans do not intend longer to abide by any form of armament limitation which is ap plicable to them alone. Within the new limits they Intend to reorganize their army -as they see fit. abolishing useless cavalry, shortening the term of service ar.d organizing bat talions. regiments and divisions as they see fit. The only special limitation consid ered acceptable by the Germans is a disarmed zone extending to 50 kilo meters (about 30 miles) cast of the Rhine. It is explained that this lim itation was Included in the Locarno agreement, by which the Germans con sider themselves bound. The Germans say that within the new convention they would accept in ternational supervision if this is ex tended to all countries. (Copyright* 1932.) SOVIET SILENT ON PARLEY. No Bid Yet Received to Projected World" Trade Conference. MOSCOW. October 7 (A·).—Up to now Soviet Russia has not been invited to participate in the projected World Economic Conference and, in the ab sence of official information concerning it. government authorities refuse to comment. · In unofficial quarters, however, the opinion is expressed that the meeting would be incomplete without repre sentation from Russia, and that if this country docs participate it probably will present very definite ideas on the present state of world economy, which has had a disastrous eflect here through the decline of prices of Russian exports In the international market. Although the government has had little opportunity to give thought to the matter, it is gathered that if Russia participates in the conference its dele gates probably will be guided by the same principles which actuated Maxim Litvlnoff, the foreign commissar, when he proposed a world pact of economic non-aggression at Geneva last year. He maintained then that preferential tariffs only make the present conditions more acute, and that the only solution is a policy of economic co-operation among the nations. It is even possible that his proposal would be offered again by Russia in its original or in some modified form. Soviet Russia is said to be uninter ested in any discussion of the world's [ currency troubles, which advance re ports indicate may be taken up at the world coeference. principally because of the peculiar position its money holds In relation to the international money market.

WIDOW EXCLUDED IN REYNOLDS' WILL Brother and Two Sisters to Share Tobacco Millions. Bequests Are Few. (Copyright. 1932. by the Associated Press > NEW YORK, October 7 —A will exe cuted by Smith Reynolds less than a year before he was fatally shot at Win ston-Salem, N. C., is to be filed for pro b3te here soon, leaving his entire share of the Reynolds tobacco millions, ex cept for a few specific bequests, to his brother and two sisters. From a source close to the Reynolds family it was established today that the will was drawn during the Summer of 1931 while young Reynolds was occupy ing a Long Island cottage near the Summer residence of Libby Holm an.

It was learned that there is a be quest of $50,000 to Smith Reynolds' ïriend, Albert Walker, who ' is also at liberty under bail awaiting trial for the murder of Reynolds.

Reynolds and his first wife were di vorced shortly after the will was drawn and it was reported at that time that he had made a financial settlement of approximately $1.000.000.

There is reported to be one sentence directing that if any person mentioned as a beneficiary even so much as asserts a belief before a judicial body that this document is not Reynolds' last will and teEtament, the other provisions of the will be carried out as though that per son had not been mentioned. There was much speculation as to what effect on the will Reynolds' mar riage to Libby Holman would have. As a widow she would have a dower right which could not be taken from her by will, the lawyer said, especially by a will drawn before she had married the testator. But whether that dower (Continued on Page 2, Column 4.) DEPORTATIONACTION DISMISSED BY U. S. Warrants Against Capt. Lancaster and Mrs. Keith-Miller Withdrawn. By the Associated Press..
