It was, in substance, a warning to the country that democratic victory next month would reverse what President Hoover believes is an upward trend. He declared the democratic party, under the lead ership of the man who is now its vice presidential candidate, spon sored a "rubber dollar," a huge pork barrel, the soldiers bonus and other measures with "reckless dis regard or the safety of the na tion." Speaker John N. Garner was not mentioned by name. But Mr. Hoo ver struck out with heavy blows at the record of the house under Garner's leadership. "It is by their acts in congress and their leadership that you shall know them," he said. Appearing before a huge cheer ing throng as the climax of a tri umphal Jpur across the Iowa farm lands, Mr. Hoover made of the most aggressive speeches of his career.

"In the midst of this hurricane the republican administration kept a cool head and rejected every counsel of weakness and coward ice," Mr. Hoover said. "Many of these battles have had to be fought in silence without the cheers of limelight or encourage ment of public support because the very disclosure of the forces op posed to us would have under mined the courage of the weak and induced panic.

Good Will Needs More Clothing for Distribution People .who have clothing on hand which still has wear in it. but which is not going to be used by some member of their own fam ily, are urged to bring or send to Good Will. Children's garments of all sorts, men's and boy's under wear. shoes and stockings of all sizes. Perhaps you have a pair of shoes that you don't think worth send ing. People come in sometimes and want a piece of leather to mend mittens or the fingers of gloves. Stockings which people may think not good enough to use, may be of use to someone else. Of course the better garments are the more wear there will be in them, but people are urged to bring what they have to help out the work of making this and surrounding communities more comfortable this winter. Gar ments should be clean. Mrs. Poulson. who is in charge of the Good Will, says that al though she has a number of gar ments on hand, they are but a small portion of the amount that, will probably be distributed this winter.

This well known period, which has been made a Fall feature nine consecutive years, will be two business days longer than usual this year, for the purpose of includ ing the three days of the Farmers Union state conven tion dated for October 13„ 14 and 15. The Trade Carnival Idea The Merchants association, cooperating with the Commercial club, and in defiance of the much men tioned depression, have planned this tenth Carnival on a grander scale than ever—a longer period, long er lists of bargains, still lower prices, many more free gifts distributed, a more varied program of amuse ments. The primary idea, and the mainspring of a Community Trade Carnival, is cooperation to make possible mass buying and mass selling, turn, makes possible selling on much narrower mar gains, wide spread advertising at less cost; and sup plies put in the homes of consumers at the lowest pos sible cost. The money is left at home to circulate pay taxes, wages, maintain schools and roads and buy the products of the farms. Which, in 7 ADVERTISERS IN THE ANNUAL TRADE SHEET Wolf Point business concerns be. lieve in going after business with printers ink for bait. The value of advertising has been proven to them by years of actual experience that was satisfactory. This year their confidence is not shaken or their courage weakened by the ec onomic distress that has swept the world.

The committees in charge of the various activities Because of the extremely low prices of grain and farm produce ; and the consequent holding of them, country people will have less money with which to buy. But the situation is met, in part, by the low price levels of other commodi ties and the unmistakably low spe cial prices on store merchandise, made for this Bargain Carnival period. LEGION AUXILIARY TO CONDUCT R.C. DRIVE The Red Cross Roll Call will begin October 8 and will be spon sored by the American Legion Aux iliary.

In many places there are a considerable number of 100 per cent families, that is families where every member is a Red Cross mem ber. Let's show our appreciation by giving as much as possible. Wolf Point has the reputation for going over the top in fine style, and this will be just one more chance to live up to her reputa tion.

They wi ij attend school at Liberty where Miss Toavs, who is qualified to teach two years high school, will instruct them.
