ADVERTISING Hoover Carried Texas As Result of Huge Campaign, Belief DALLAS, Tex.. Nov. 8—<4* A ■tupendous advertising campaign by tha republicans and anti-Smith democrats while the straight out democrats pursued their old system of permitting nature to take its course was pointed to from some quarters today as having played a great part in placing lex* ’ twenty electoral votes in the republican col umn for the first time. Six million pieces of literature were mailed from anti-Smith head quarters and the campaign of edu cation included printing a specimen ballot in 138 Texas newspaper* and, in the closing days of th«* campaign, paid advertising in 43 daily news papers. “In many countie* the local Hoover supporters placed advertis ing unknown to the headquarters un til copies of the papers were re ceived,’ said Freri L. Haskett, publi city manager. “It was the greatest rdvertised political campaign in Texes and proves that advertising pays evjyj In adverse press.*’ It was the first time on record that a republican campaign in Texas had amounted to more than a ges ture. While Pre*ident-Klect Hoov er found many champions amongst old-line republicans and bolting democrats. only one nationally known speaker from outside Texas appeared. Senator William F. Borah. \ who made one speech. On the other hand, the democratic leaders show ed something mpre than the accus tomed interest in the campaign, by placing a number of prominent speakers in the field, but there was ■no determined, organixed effort to keep the Lone Star state demo cratic. Governor Dan Moody, who sup ported the ticket as a whole, de livered but one addr*<* during the campaign. He came to Dallas to re ply to Senator Borah «ho rtly be fore the close of the campaign.

Ebb Tide Makes Leviathan Wait NEW YORK, Nov. 9. tP> Just a good broad jump from the pier 1,300 pa>sengets on the incoming I'mted States liner Leviathan were forced to spend the night aboard when a strong ebb tide forced the biggest liner afloat to drop anchor in the river. Commodore H. A. Cunningham hud endeavored to berth the ship but the strong tide swung her stern against the adjoining pier and it was con sidered too hazardous to move her until the tide turned. The presence of another liner in the same slip addd to the difficulties. The passengers, tired of the long wait down the bay where they were held by a strong wind, clamored to be put ashore but the commodore considered her position too hazard ous to lower a gangplank. Berths, which had been stripped of their lin ens. were made up agein and the pas sengers went back to bed. The liner docked this morning. Hawkins Flays Moody’s Stand B RFC KEN RIDGE, Tex.. Nov. 9.— • Pi Judge William E. Hawkins, a former member of the Texas su preme court, and an unsuccessful candidate for governor in the first democratic primary this year, issued a statement today in which he said, in part: “Let the true responsibility for the overwhelming repudiation of the national democratic ticket rest where it truly belongs. Moody’s effort to “boulder it off on Raskoh is an affront to the intelligence cf the Te'as electorate.

CoL Clarence C. Culver Is Versa tile Aviator 4 ________________ Rv KIKKE I.. SIMPSON (Associated Press Staff \Vr‘»er.) LANGLEY FIELD. Va.. Nov. **.— rypt—It's an accepted axiom of avia tion, particularly of military avia tion, that flying is a young man's game. The advancing years seem to breed caution in the breasts of even the most daring youngsters, and caution has little to do with the work of an army pilot aspiring for "ace" honors, be it in peace or war. On occasion, however, age notably fails to wither the desire to be up and doing in the air. Witness the written record of Lieut. Col. Clarence it. <uiaer. Army Air Corps, com mandant at I.anglev Field. Va., and still about as lively a pilot as is to be tound despite his 56 years. Since he crossed the half century mark, Langley's “Old Man” has done more than 800 hours in air, all but 54 hours of it in solo flight and 463 hours going into cross country ex cursions in all kinds of weather and any old type of ship. The years sit very lightly on (*ulver. even in looks. His stocky, broad shouldered, deep chested figure spells physical fitness that even today would put many of I the youngsters of his command to shame. Culver, with a University of Ne braska degree in his pocket, crashed the gate of army lift* in 1898 for the Spanish «ar as ah enlisted volunteer regular. He was a quartermaster sergeant in the third cavalry of which he was to become a regular officer later on. Regular army life began for Cul ver in 1901 as a second lieutenant of cavalry but he had begun studying up the then wholly new thing of ra dio and in 1907 switched to the Sig nal Corps as a radio specialist, set ting up the Corrigidor Island and F’ort Mills, P. I. stations and also doing a little work on a British wire less plant in Singapore. He got a first i.a-te of aviation at an interna tional meet in Chicago in 1911 deal ing particularly with development of barographse. but when the war came in 1917 he jumped to aviation and I reached the temporary rank of col onel in that branch before the ar mistice. His permanent transfer to aviation as one of its senior officers came in 1920 anil then began a per- , sonal experience in flying that has piled up an amazing number of hours in air for this mighty active execu tive of the lusty baby branch of Uncle Sam's fighting team. Culver was solemnly warned some time ago that he did any further fly ing at his own risk. He was getting too old for 11ii mler army standards. I His answer has heen practically to I double the time he spends in the air. NORTH CAROLINA ADDS TO HOOVER MAJORITY CHARLOTTE. N. < ..

It was unanimous in Toral’s case. Mother Concepcion was found guilty by a vote of eight to one, a majority verdict under Mexican law being sufficient to convict. She dropped her eyes and sat motionless. When sentences were imposed’ everybody in the courtroom stood. From the outside came the cheers of the crowd. Officers drew their swords and saluted as the blades flashed in the late afternoon light, rolicemen stood at attention and s& luted. Toral rose. ‘‘May I speak?" he asked. “No. you can speak later," the judge answered. The guards formed quickly around Toral and Mother Concepcion. Before they could be led off a spokesman for the jury rose. He asked the judge to give the jurymen guards to escort them to their homes. Many of the jurymen had been coming to the trial armed since threats had been made against them. Judge Thanks Jury “You have performed your duty and returned a fair verdict.” the judge said. “The nation applauds you and you do not need guards." The jurymen departed unguarded. Toral was bundled into an auto mobile and surrounded by heavily armed army officers. Mother Con cepcion rode to prison in an open truck with guards around her. The defense contended that Toral's crime was political and as such was not punishable by death but imprison ment. Mother Concepcion based her ap peal for acquittal on the argument that she knew nothing of Toral’* in tention to kill General Obregon.

The creation of a more extensive organization in the south ern states was one of the first con cerns in his campaign, and under hi* personal direction a southern di vision of the republican national or ganzation was set up under the di rection of Horace A. Mann. This division brought about changes in the character of state or ganization, and it ia interpreted that the work undertaken within the lim ited time permitted during th ecam paign will be extended. Just how this will be done is for future determina tion. as the president-elect is keeping his mind free from political problems as much as possible during his period of rest and quiet.

They come . to us over the highways In trucks, over the steel rails in trains, and over the seven seas in ships. And this transportation from source to consumer, through local distributing points, makes food ex pensive. Therefore, upon arrival in the home food should be carefully protected from spoilage—in winter as well as summer—economy requires it and good health demands it. To furnish this protection food must be kept ' at an even cold temperature and supplied with pure air circulation, under sanitary conditions. A good ice box will fulfill these three requirements, without regulation and at a minimum cost. • Use ice in winter.
